Topic: Laws of God
Thou shalt not kill. (Exodus 20:13 KJV)
Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Let’s examine this simple verse and put this to our generation.
As Jesus stated, He didn’t come into our lives to make us miserable, but to give abundant life. He wanted us to have life that would build relationship with Him and people. The Genesis account is all about the relationship from the creation of the world to the formation of the twelve tribes of Israel. In the books of Gospel, we read about why Jesus suffered at the cross for our sins. It was not because He is the God, but He wanted to build relationship with us. He is the Emmanuel, God with us (Matthew 1:23).
I believe that God has kept pouring the blessing upon the America over the years. However, we have misused the blessing of God and turned this nation upside down. This coming week, we let our kids to walk to their neighbors to ask for the goodies as they’d celebrate Halloween, which is the satanic high Sabbath or holy day. Halloween has become as our national holiday and to make fun for our family tradition without realizing that we are honoring the dead saints and Satan. It is one of our downfalls we practiced over the years.
As where the nation goes, we have been blessed by God to carry His messages out to all the four corners of the world. Also, we are blessed to be partnership with the people of Israel all the years. However, we are continuing to face several tragedies in our land. As I stated, we cannot bring another great spiritual awakening until we’d surrender our sins and ask God for forgiveness.
The first 16 days of this month has been turned into financial crunched time for the America. And it is continuing. Why? American has been unplugged to stay in touch with God and her people. We put God away and let our politicians take over the land. Right now, we are trying to fix the www.healthcare.gov to make everybody happy, except God. Most of us run to our medicine cabinets as the primary health source than God to get our health back.
As I mentioned on the earlier blog entry, American has been become the World Greatest Fugitive because we let our government to change laws to accept sin activities. Smoking a cigar has been acceptable all over the world, even though it would destroy our bodies permanently. Now, American is continuing to try to make homosexual marriage legal to all the 50 states. As we are continuing to progress to make sin activities legal, we are also continuing to kill our relationships with God and people.
God planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to us to pay our sins, so we can have free access to God and develop personal relationship with Him. Would you like to have personal relationship with God? If you’d like to know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, I’d like to encourage you to do two simple things. First, confess your sins and invite Jesus Christ to your life. Paul said in Romans 10:9-11, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” There is no sinner prayer formula. Instead, you just talk to God at where you are now. Secondly, I’d like to encourage you to find a good solid biblical teaching church and Christian friends. They can help you to build strong relationship with God.
