Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
In 74+ years there have been interesting days, filled with life’s greatest roller coaster ride, one could experience. Highs which lifted me to what I thought was close to heaven, and lows which seemed bottomless and would never end fringing on Hell. In between were the days I spent fighting with me, fighting with a small truth nagging in the back of my mind. Why am I not satisfied or fulfilled, with this life something is missing?
After wrestling with this, for a period of time, today I can say, I found the answer to those questions. “Oh,” sure I could spout the usual cliches “I found the Lord,” [don’t get me wrong] and there is great pleasure in that fact, and precisely what this article is about finding that missing something.
The reason I avoid the cliches, they are overused and in my estimation have lost their savour, been heard too many times, like seeing a sign to many times nobody pays much attention anymore. So what am I looking for? What do I want to state, which will grab and hold your interest as the modern-day individual, who is educated, considered successful, and in your mind fulfilled and completed, according to the world standard? Look at what is surrounding you all that the world has to offer, what more is needed to be peaceful?
Can you as a modern-day person with all your Artificial Intelligence, fancy gadgets to save time, and instant communication around the world, truly comprehend the following statement. “God actually became one of us, flesh and blood, and for a short period of time walked among us.” Sure that was some time past, like 2000+ years, but think of it he actually was here. Yeshua (Jesus Christ), in his entrance, was God manifest in the flesh.
I guess for the modern-day individual the question is why would he, and how do we scientifically prove that? Would it be difficult for you to understand why God with all his powers, [as you comprehend in your worldly wisdom] would step down from His throne to walk among us?
I am sure your thinking, what was he looking for? So now this analytical mind you have is kicking in, if he really was God would he not have everything needed, as you compare your success to his greatness? Now comes the real question would you do the same, give up your success and rewards which bring you comfort and believed peace? For, how do they put it “for this pie in the sky unseen master of the universe”?
Now, that is the jist of the article, which will fill in the gaps of why I spent a good portion of my life chasing after what I believed would bring peace into my life. Until one day I actually discovered the answer to that question of who the master of the Universe really is.
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father, as we bow before your throne and lay our petitions before you, we ask you to hear our prayers. As our days become more treacherous and dangerous, we pray Lord for your guidance. We recognize Father those who desire to harm or prevent us from doing your work, they do not accept you or your compassion, forgiveness, or love. We give praise Lord for the protection you place us under and acknowledge You alone are our helper and uphold our souls. We know Father you will reward evil unto our enemies cutting them off in your truth. We know Father it is You who will deliver us from all sin. This we give thanks for in the name of your Son, Yeshua, Amen, and Amen.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
As Fishers of men, like parents, we must be caring yet firm I quote from the article ” REALLY, YOU ARE ONE AS WELL,” and like Paul, whose teaching was functional. Not about filling people’s heads with airy notions, nor amuse them with nice speculations, nor bring them into disputes. But teach, by informative and firm offerings, proclamations, and demonstrations, show why they need to know, who God and His Son Yeshua is, learn why they must be a part of their lives through the Repenting of their sin. Declaring Yeshua as their saviour.“
Here, is why I am approaching this differently, Paul related teach informatively, I take that to mean, first gain their attention, then speak at their level of understanding. Bring them information which can be comprehended but based on facts and truths. Don’t flower it up, be firm but direct. For me, it is to explain how I found the peace, so elusive, so sought after for so long and finally so easily found.
Explaining why God would walk among us, lightly detailing Adam and Eve as everyone knows that story, but few understand the consequence of being separated spiritually from God. How God loves us so deeply He was creating a way for man to reconnect with Him Spiritually. Because we did not understand our weaknesses, against temptations, which kept us separated from God, who allowed His Son Yeshua to walk among us, so we would know His Divine nature did not desert us, but through his son, Yeshua, supported us and brought comfort and value into our lives and opened the door for us to receive everlasting life and Peace through Yeshua’s daily sufferings and eventual sacrifice. To again be spiritually connected to God.
And now, while we have God’s favourable presence, we will have found happiness, but, also recognize, those who once were with us in the world, now are hating us. Now, here is where we find Peace and answer, those questions, of what was missing; “Yeshua,” who is the only true peace, in him alone believers have it.
Through him, we have peace with God, and so in him, we have peace in our own minds, and in his departure (Resurrection) was received up into glory. By this saying, the disciples improved in knowledge. Also in faith; so shall those who have found His peace, here and now, as well have improved knowledge and Faith.
We ought to be encouraged because Yeshua has overcome the world before us. But while we think we are safe, let us be cautious, unless we fall. We do not know how we will act when brought into temptation; let us watch and pray without ceasing, that we may not be left to ourselves. As an assurance, this will not occur we have been shown our Lords invitation to daily, Dine, with Him as He will set a place for us at His table.
The Holy Spirit teaches men to be joyful under spiritual attacks: such exercises are sent from God’s love, and trials in the way of duty will brighten our graces now, and present our crown later. Let us take care, in times of trial, patience, and not passion, is set to work in us: whatever is said or done, let patience have the saying and doing of it. Romans 5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulations worketh patience.
When the work of patience is complete, it will furnish all that is necessary for our Believers race and warfare. We should not pray so much for the removal of affliction, as for wisdom to make the right use of it. And who does not want wisdom to guide him under trials, both in regulating his own spirit and in managing his affairs? I believe we have a template before us in this link which will reinforce the peace we have found.
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
“Heavenly Father, I pray you will awaken knowledge and wisdom in your children to receive and discern your truths. I pray all will find answers in them and they will be assisted in their journey on the narrow path to eternity and life. Blessings to all who go forward in peace sharing the Love Yeshua has blessed us with, may your lanterns shine long and bright in all parts of your journey in this life. God be with you all in your choices and decisions about your walk with your Lantern. God Bless and keep you safe on your lighted path. This I pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.”
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
The peace I have found fills me with this knowledge and joy described in Mark 1:17 And Yeshua said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you become Fisher’s of Men. To receive this mantel of what I would call peace in Yeshua, you cannot walk or float a spiritual balloon in the world. It requires a full heartfelt commitment to feel Yeshua’s peace rather than the worldly peace there is a difference and you will know it. It’s your choice. I have made my choice and have never felt more love and compassion within the peace which fills me now. Amen.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient unto our Lord Yeshua as a “Watchman.” This I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua.“ “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength. In the name of Yeshua, we pray Amen and Amen.
