About God - What Do You Believe?

 
Posted by Elaine February 12, 2016 at 12:00 AM AEDT

An agnostic is one who believes it impossible to know anything about God or about the creation of the universe and refrains from commitment to any religious doctrine. An atheist is one who denies the existence of a deity or of divine beings. Many have abandoned religion completely, believing the quest to find God is meaningless, so is religion meaningless, do we go to heaven no matter how we live?

What you believe shapes your destiny but with so many different religions which one should you choose?
Increasing trends say the quest to find God is meaningless…. but does choosing to disbelieve in God or just sit on the fence effect your future? Do all roads lead to God?

In making the correct choice we need to ask ourselves:
Which religion has a God that has an empty grave?
What other religion has a God that came to earth, dwelt amongst man, was crucified but came back to life again?

Yes. What other great nation has gods that are intimate with them the way God, our God, is with us, always ready to listen to us? And what other great nation has rules and regulations as good and fair as this Revelation that I’m setting before you today? Deuteronomy 4:7 MSG

What other God left behind His presence in the form of the Holy Spirit to speak to us every day… waiting patiently for us to take notice and listen. Read the promises Jesus made to his followers before He ascended into heaven, an act witnessed by hundreds of people.

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,who will never leave you.
He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. John 14:16-18

“I’m telling you these things while I’m still living with you. The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you. I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught. “John 14:26-27”

What other God left behind instructions that lead to abundant life for all who embrace them and The Bible, His Word to us remains on the best sellers list long after He walked on earth. Why is that?

Who else promises to create a new heaven and a new earth for those who love Him?

Who else promises to come back to earth to claim us and take us to heaven?

There is only one way to connect with your creator and live the way you were meant to so don’t settle for less. You are uniquely designed, one of a kind and here for a reason but you won’t find out what that reason is unless you connect with your creator. And no other choice you make will succeed. Jesus a price paid when sacrificed His life on the Cross so we could connect with the God of the Universe.

Although the evil one, known as Satan, Lucifer, or the Prince of Darkness, was defeated and thrown out of heaven for trying to become God. He’s not happy that he was expelled so he wants to destroy you any way he can. Other religions exist to turn you away from the only true way and he wants to believe anything else but Jesus. Jesus is the only one in control, the only one who can save you, He is alive right now and he waits for you to call on Him.

So, my dear children, don’t let anyone divert you from the truth. It’s the person who acts right who is right, just as we see it lived out in our righteous Messiah. Those who make a practice of sin are straight from the Devil, the pioneer in the practice of sin. The Son of God entered the scene to abolish the Devil’s ways.

People conceived and brought into life by God don’t make a practice of sin. How could they? God’s seed is deep within them, making them who they are. It’s not in the nature of the God-begotten to practice and parade sin. Here’s how you tell the difference between God’s children and the Devil’s children: The one who won’t practice righteous ways isn’t from God, nor is the one who won’t love brother or sister. A simple test. 1 John 3:7-8

Even those who should know better can get it wrong where God is concerned and the Bible says that Ignoring God Leads to a Downward Spiral:
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. What happened was this: People knew God perfectly well, but when they didn’t treat him like God, refusing to worship him, they trivialised themselves into silliness and confusion so that there was neither sense nor direction left in their lives. They pretended to know it all, but were illiterate regarding life. They traded the glory of God who holds the whole world in his hands for cheap figurines you can buy at any roadside stand. Romans 1:20

This is way too important to ignore. Now you have the information to need to put behind you all the wondering and step into the future God has prepared for those who accept HIm. And please share this information with those you love!
