Can You Control Your Future?

“For the Joy Set before Me.” If you are familiar with the Word of God, you will notice that the quote above is incorrect. I have changed one very important word.

The word is “Him”, (Jesus)… and the phrase should read “For the Joy set before Him …He endured the Cross”.

God has many attributes of which Omniscience is one. This attribute means God knows the past, present and future. We live our lives based on yesterday. We know nothing of today until we live it, and we do not know anything about tomorrow. In fact the future is like a mystery play or novel where the author has written a plot that unfolds with each curtain or chapter.

When we read the story, it takes us through all our emotions as we become involved in the characters. We too are living a story. Like the characters in the play or novel we too have a beginning and ending. Ours is a story with pages and chapters that represent the seasons of our lives.

We think we can control the novel by taking charge, making decisions, planning out our lives. But, if you have learned from your past experiences; you will understand that all you can do is plan in pencil. Someone else has the eraser.

Our future is a mystery to us, but not to God. God has created everything, including time. He stands outside of time, above time and sees everything at the same time. That is why He knows your beginning and ending.

Your life story is no mystery to Him and He does not want it to be a mystery to you either. So He gave you a book to read. As with any creation the product comes with a book of instruction that we must follow.

You know what that is. It is no different than the owners’ manual you received with your new car, television or washing machine. This book called the Bible answers all your questions by the one who created you. It unveils the mystery play or novel in which your life and death are written into.

The Bible is the history of mankind’s past, present and future. It has been called HIS-Story, because it was written about Him. Your existence is not about you…it is about HIM. But look closely for you are written in the story as well. Your story is about your individual journey. The book gives you clear directions on how to find your way to two distinctly different places that will become your home forever….hell or Heaven.

The paths are clearly marked, but the choices you make along the way will determine the path you are on. The good news is that if you are on the wrong path there is always time to change. The bad news is that change of direction can only happen until your last breath. Then your destiny will be sealed by you alone, by the choices you made. You are responsible for your path through life and your ultimate destiny…not God.

WHAT IS TRUTH ?

ISAIAH 46
“To whom will you liken me and make me equal and compare me, that we may be alike? Those who lavish gold from the purse, and weigh out silver in the scales, hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god; then they fall down and worship! They lift it to their shoulders, they carry it, they set it in its place, and it stands there; it cannot move from its place. If one cries to it, it does not answer or save him from his trouble. Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors, Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand.”

There is an old rabbinic saying that God made man because God loves stories. There is no greater story than the “Greatest Story Ever Told” represented by the Holy Bible. It is not fiction. It is the autobiography of God.

I spent time during the last couple of weeks reviewing the materials I collected during the 3 years I searched for the Truth about God, after the death of my father. The materials are in a 3” ring binder; with hundreds of pages… it barely closes.

During that period of time I investigated the World Religions of Judaism, Catholicism, Protestantism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormonism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Atheism. All claimed to have the truth about God, yet the claims of all their Gods were different…so what is true?

The conclusion I came too is that God is a Trinity, made up of 3 Persons; Father, Son (Yeshua/Jesus) and Holy Spirit. I have a Biblical World View. I believe the past, present and future of mankind is revealed by GOD ONLY in HIS INERRANT WORD.

When you read the Words of the ONE TRUE GOD, your own faith will be strengthened, your joy will be renewed and you will find again the eternal purpose that God planned for you before the foundations of the world were ever made…in Eternity past…before time began.

In this world of sound bites, flashing images and continual bad news, we and our children have lost the ability to think deeply about anything.

We want the answers but not the research the answers were developed from. We have become shallow thinkers blown about by every new fad or opinion. I was raised to think…I was raised to evaluate…I was raised to stand alone for my convictions… I was taught to drink deeply from the well of knowledge that God had provided in His Word.

What higher pursuit can we have if not to understand the Word of God given to us by the God who created us? Can anyone know us better? You were created an immortal, eternal being….you will never go out of existence…you will always and forever be you. Do you not want to learn about where you will spend eternity the split second after you die?

His Word was meant for even a Child to Understand. Our minds are not complex, they simple like a child’s.

Come and See the Messiah through a Childs Eyes.by Anonymous

Their faces I formed so that mine they would seek.
Ears to listen for the Word I would speak.
Eyes to see, minds to understand.
All they required I made with my Hand.
The Law and the Prophets for centuries foretold.
The birth of a baby begotten of old.
In words un- encoded, with language so plain; that even
the simplest could call on my name.
Fathom mysteries confounding the wise.
See the Messiah through a child’s eyes.

Take the journey within HIS Bible as HE Speaks to ONLY YOU. Read HIS WORDS ALOUD and you will Hear HIS VOICE. You will be in AWE of the ONE who holds the Past, the Present, the Future and YOU in HIS hands.
