Why is finding God so difficult?

  God says, ‘Here I am’ My hands stretched all day long for you, but “... when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight," Isaiah 65:12. He said you’ve walked in a way that is not good, i.e. according to you own thoughts. That’s why I "was found by those who did not seek Me." ‘Here I am!‘ The good thing with God is he reveals himself to you, but sadly we choose not to see, seek, listen nor to find him. To “find God” is an expression that can mean different things to different people. For some, is getting religion, whatever religion that may be. For others, to “find God” means to “clean up one’s life,” usually with his help. In any case, to “find God” involves a change in someone’s attitude and behaviour. Biblically speaking, to find God means to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is only through Jesus that anyone can come to God (John 14:6), and receiving Christ results in a

Why is God not listening?

 Don’t look any further my friend, but look at yourself, the answer is you do as you please! God has not noticed your prayers because "your iniquities are separating you from your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not listen,” Isaiah 59:2. Iniquity could simply mean your conduct... We pretend sometimes that we want to know. James says, "But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?" James 2:20. But if we really care, "Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear," Isaiah 59:1. The problem sometimes is, we trust too much in empty words and lie to ourselves, but if we "conceive evil [we] bring forth iniquity," Isaiah 59:4. Our feet are good only when we run to evil, wasting and destruction. But the way of peace we’ve not known, therefore the fruit of righteousness is far from us. We look for light, but there is darkness. I don’t want you to se

Would you call this a fast?

  Would you call this a FAST, And an acceptable day to the LORD? A hypocrite is a person who pretends to have certain beliefs, when in reality he/she really does not. An example is a person who fasts, but is constantly finding pleasure. Some people take delight only in approaching God; they seek him daily, as if they do righteousness, and they pretend to know God’s ways as if they did not forsake His ordinances.  Isaiah 58:2 says, "They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God," but in actual fact their hearts are far away from him. The Lord of the Sabbath was right when He said, "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven,” Matthew 7:20-21 Why do we fast these day? Isaiah said, you fast for advantage; to make your voices heard. He said, “Indeed you fast for strife and debate, And to strike wi

Ho! Ho! Ho! Everyone

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? It’s because your leaders want you to do so, but " My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, " says the LORD. " For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts, " Isaiah 55:8-9. With God, salvation is free! The price was on Jesus, and 2000 years ago God accepted the offering of his blood - it was enough. God said nations " shall run to you, Because of the LORD your God, " not because for any other reason, your money, your wages nor tithing, but because of the sure mercies of David shown them. He said, " as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be... " Isaiah 55:10 - 11. Freely you received, and freely give. He

The covenant of peace

God agreed through Christ that between you and Him there be a perpetual covenant peace. You will break forth into singing, and cry aloud with joy, you who were desolate and hopeless, " for with great mercies I will gather you, " says the Lord. In Christ we’re gathered together - He is our Redeemer! He fights for us! He prospers us! " No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD, "Isaiah 54:17. He said, " So have I sworn That I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you. For the mountains shall depart And the hills be removed, But My kindness shall not depart from you, Nor shall My covenant of peace be removed, " Says the LORD, who has mercy on you, Isaiah 54:9-10. In His covenant (His love, His Love and His kindness) you’re safe my friend, and you have peace. Do not fear, only sing

Why Lord why me?

Many people ask; why Lord why me? Hezekiah said, " indeed it was for my own peace That I had great bitterness; But You have lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back ," Isaiah 38:17. Did you hear that? All things work for your good. God loves you regardless. However, that you do in the prime of your life impacts the remainder of your years, even hereafter. If you’re born again, you allow the Lord to undertake, but if you’re not born again you certainly deprive your latter years. Hezekiah had boils and was supposed to die because of them. He said, "I shall go to the gates of Sheol" and sin shall make an end of me. But when he repented, God undertook deliverance for him, he said, " What shall I say? He has both spoken to me, And He Himself has done it. I shall walk carefully all my years in the bitterness of my soul, " Isaiah 38:15 knowing that God has restored me. For this reason, he said I’ll prai

How much do people know about you?

Hezekiah answered, " They have seen all that is in my house; there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them, " Isaiah 39:4. I can hear Isaiah say, " What? " Then Hezekiah said, it doesn’t matter Isaiah, " They came to me from a far country, from Babylon ." What can they do? Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, " Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: 'Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,' says the LORD. 'And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon .'" Isaiah 39:5-7. How much do people know about you my friend? Everything? Then hear the word of the Lord! This reminds me of one president. Someone said of him I don't think he can now be trusted with intelligence briefing, and in the futur
