God’s Guidance: Exposing Good & Evil!

16 Jun

When one is truly reborn in the spirit, the Word of God becomes the center point in one’s life. This center point places everything about our world and our walk in this journey to eternity at the forefront of our life, and the gift of discernment keeps us focused on what life is about! That Journey through this life on earth to a life in eternity with God. For a billion plus years!

In Eden we see that Adam and Eve had no knowledge of evil[1] only good, yet there was this curiosity that recognized that forbidden fruit on the tree in the middle of the Garden as being “pleasant to the eyes”. And in this recognition Eve was drawn by the Satan’s words, “Yeah hath God said”. This relationship or encounter is the first tell tale marker that enables us to discern truth. That drawing away from the truth of salvation is an attraction to a focus on satisfying a fleshly lusting. Which God in His word describes over and over, as part of our struggle, a struggle that the true servants of God will remind us and point us to God’s salvation which overcomes this fleshly struggle.

When we read and study the Word of God we can see how every relationship in our life stacks up to these words “Yeah has god said”. God through Peter in 2 peter (speaks clearly to identify the evil in) 2:18 “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. [19] While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.” We see God giving us yet another warning to guide us and to help us identify false prophets and teachings.

After the fall, we see the expansion of man’s thinking to be focused on this world to the exclusion of God and God’s plan of eternity.[2] The focus of a surrendering to the desires of the flesh, or as we say the “Good life.” So much so that the Lord gave up on man and caused a flood.

The progression of the focus on the “good Life” is laid out for us to see in the earlier days before the Birth of our Lord the Savior, Jesus Christ. The evil that comes from the hearts of men, unwilling to surrender to God and His Word. This unwillingness to Surrender to God is why we have so many religions that choose to call themselves Christian, and just as the attitude of self righteous Jews in the day of our Lord,[3] so we have today this bent on promotion of self and a good life here.

It is broadly published that, “God gave me a brain so that I could find my own way” and so many similar phrases that ultimately are about promoting self.  Some sort of shortcut that excludes God giving knowledge of our flesh and somehow giving each of us our own truth. This ultimately is a way to promote a good Life and still have some semblance of being a Christian. Just as Satan promoted in Eden.

All through history we see this promotion of self thinking ultimately being anti Christ or against Christ’s Gospel!

Our schools teach evolution because some guy used his brain to figure out something which is anti Christ. God shows the brilliance of His Creation when He let Adam name the living creatures[4], there was no grunting caveman ever.

We see individual verses of the Bible being taken out of context to promote a way of thinking that presents itself as truth when it leaves God and the goal of salvation out of the picture.

Starting back with the Jews who promoted their own false holiness by denying the real reason of the law in its pointing out their inability to live righteously so that they look to God’s Promise of a savior, and they falsely trusted in themselves.

God Proves that if you make yourselves a god by picking what you want rather than coming to Him and His Word for answers, with a heart that Surrenders to Him, you are lost.

God says that except you become as a little child[5] in your acceptance of Him you cannot enter into the kingdom of God!
