DO I BELIEVE IN GOD?

born-again

This is where all things begin. But before I can move forward I must decide whose God I believe in? The cry of humanity is that there is One God. However, when I study the religions of men and the multiple gods that are portrayed, they are ALL Different. The characteristics of the gods of men are not alike. So, it begs the question, which god is real, which is false. Because there can only be ONE TRUE GOD.

Here are some thoughts to ponder. Everyone believes in something by faith? Yet proving that faith in something by experience and emotions is impossible. The atheists cannot prove there is no God. The Pantheists cannot prove that everything is God. Nor can the agnostics prove that it is impossible to know one way or the other.

Denying the existence of God does not dispel the mysteries of life. We as human beings are unwillingly drawn to something greater than ourselves. Because we have questions. Who is Ernie Pahlek? How did I get here? What is my purpose here on earth? And lastly, where am I going when I die?

Today many scientists who believe in evolution also believe that the universe in all its immensity and complexity did not just happen. Many are compelled to acknowledge the likelihood of an intelligent designer.

Open the Book of Genesis and meet the designer of the EARTH, the UNIVERSE, and YOURSELF. The TRIUNE GOD is also the author of human history with a chosen interest in the Jewish people.

From the exodus of God’s people Israel to the coming of the Jewish Messiah, the God of the Bible rests His case on events witnessed in real time and locations you can visit today. From the beginning of Old Testament History through New Testament History you will find HIS-STORY. The Story of the MESSIAHS 1st Coming found in PROPHECIES written hundreds and thousands of years before; that have all come true. Israel’s past, present and future was pre-written along with the birth of Fallen Mankind and Fallen Mankind’s Death.

Together with other Prophets, Moses predicted not only Israel’s possession of the land but also, her unparalleled suffering and dispersion throughout the whole earth, her eventual repentance, and then finally her last days of restoration where only 1/3 will recognize their Messiah Jesus and will be saved and 2/3 will turn away from the True Messiah, putting their faith in the false messiah and be lost for eternity.

Read the Greatest Story Ever Told. The Story of the Son of God in the Old and New Testaments. Then Read the Book of Revelation to find your FUTURE. Yes, YOU are written on its pages because you are either part of mankind’s New Beginning or part of mankind’s End.

Emmanuel is Whiter than Snow

Emmanuel is Whiter than Snow

As I opened my front door Saturday Evening to watch the falling snow I began to reflect on the porch light shining into the outer darkness that surrounds our home.

The darkness was pierced; by the porch light that emanates a soft welcoming light to those who would approach our home. The darkness as always bows the knee and recedes before the light. For the power of light is far greater than that of darkness. The light welcomes all that come to our home,

Come, O Come out of the darkness into my light where you will find love, companionship, comfort and rest.

The light beckons to all who are invited to find our home and enjoy our company; just as the light of Christ beckons your soul to spend eternity with HIM. Matthew refers to those who will reside outside the New Jerusalem (the city of God) away from God, as living away from His Light for eternity in outer darkness forever.

The wind has been kicking up. The predicted snowfall is here. The tiny wind funnels of snowflakes begin dancing before my eyes. Swirling patterns of dazzling white snow with sparkling diamonds dance for joy in the light coming to rest on the ground forming a white blanket covering the earth.

The earth once covered in darkness beyond the light from my porch is now turning white. The white blanket of snow begins to reflect light causing the shadows to recede even further.

The light emanating from our porch represents to us the light of Christ, the Messiah who came long ago. The One that God refers to in His Bible as “The Light of the World” who will cause darkness to recede, while leading all people who have been Invited, to HIS DOOR. No one; has been left out of His invitation, to come in to Him…not even you.

The light illumines the white of the snow that whirls around the door. The snow represents His purity and righteousness; His righteousness that we all must acquire before we can enter through His door that opens into Heaven.

God has made it clear, that only those that are Holy and perfect according to His standards can enter Heaven. He also has made it clear that not one of us is good enough to get in on our own merit.

Isaiah 64:6 in the Old Testament say’s, “All our righteous deeds are like filthy garments. This is echoed by the Apostle Paul in Romans 3:9 when he said, “Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin…there is no one righteous, not even one.”

I am looking forward to the Second Coming of Jesus and the New Jerusalem. What about you? In eternity past before the foundations of the world God set into time the Birth Date of Emmanuel (God with us), His Son Jesus, the Messiah / the Christ of all humanity.

It was at the Fullness of Time that HE CAME ALREADY.

Jesus the “Light of the World”, the ONE we call out to…

“SAVIOR COME NEAR”.

The ONE we individually acknowledge as:

My Rock, My Fortress, My Deliverer who RESCUED ME.

My Rock, My Refuge, My Shield, My Defender.

HE IS ALL I NEED.

In HIM I found me!
