“For the LORD GOD is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will HE withhold from them that walk uprightly, psalm 84:11.
GOD ALMIGHTY will start supplying spiritual power to energize your spirit, as the sun does to all organisms and plants on the earth. GOD will start protecting you from all evil arising in your human environment. GOD will make you to be aware of your new mistakes, especially the moral ones, and would delay the most painful repercussions while you are connecting yourself and HE will assist you to achieve a great success in all your legitimate endeavors.
The following passages indicate some of the other good things which GOD does to HIS children. Jeremiah 33:3, Job 1:9-10, Matthew 6:33.
The prescription of our Lord, Jesus Christ, in Matthew 7:7 becomes applicable for your personal benefit once your name is restored in GOD’S BOOK. Exodus 32:33
LECTURE 2 OF SERIES 1:
PLEASE LEARN AND ADOPT THE PROTOCOL OF CONSTANT REVERENCE WHENEVER YOU APPROACH GOD IN PRAYER, OR IN ANY FORM OF WORSHIP.
EVEN WHEN YOU ARE JUST THINKING ABOUT GOD IN A CASUAL AND NON – RELIGIOUS SETTING, BE SURE TO ESTABLISH A PERMANENT PROTOCOL OF CONSTANT REVERENCE FOR GOD IN YOUR MIND, WHICH YOU MUST ENFORCE WITHIN YOURSELF EVERYTIME SUCH THAT YOU WILL NEVER ALLOW IN YOUR MIND A RUDE OR A REBELLIOUS IDEA AGAINST GOD.
THIS MEANS THAT YOU MUST ALWAYS FEAR TO OFFEND GOD!
(a) BECAUSE GOD IS EXACTLY AS HE HAD LONG REVEALED TO FATHER ABRAHAM,
“………I AM THE ALMIGHTY GOD (EL SHADDAI)” Genesis 17:1.
(b) BECAUSE GOD IS EXACTLY AS HE HAD LONG REVEALED TO PROPHET MOSES,
“……….I AM THAT I AM.” Exodus 3:14. That is, The Divinity WHO is always present to see, to hear, to feel whatever is going on, or about to happen, everywhere in the creation which HE had established and over which HE is always everywhere and everytime ALMIGHTY.
(c) BECAUSE HE ALONE CREATED EVERYTHING AND EVERY BEING in Heaven and upon the earth, AS HE HAD LONG REVEALED TO PROPHET ISAIAH,
“……….I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;(No Greek Lagos helping HIM out) that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself (No part of the creating delegated to HIS Son, Jesus Christ, as stated by St. Paul in (Ephesians 3:9, )”Isaiah 44:24.
Therefore, the reverence which all of us human beings must manufacture and retain in our minds for GOD must be total and unqualified. If not, we would be the losers all over again as Adam and Eve became losers, from life to death, because of a deceitful suggestion from a fellow child of GOD who was wearing the costume of a mere serpent!
As we aim to return to GOD to re-establish a vibrant filial relationship with HIM this time, we must ensure that we get it right so that we all could eventually earn the eternal life by New Birth (John 12:50) which we carelessly gave away in the Garden of Eden because we did not create in our minds quite early in our existence the full reverence for GOD, the full trust in GOD, the full appreciation of what GOD had done for us in making us ab inito to be in the status of children to HIM and to decide to train us by HIMSELF in the morning of creation, as HE had previously done to HIS Sons in heaven. By doing that, GOD had showed that HE is in loco parentis to us and that we are also meant to be a statu pupilari to HIM!
That was why lecture 1 of this Salvation Series is about creating by a strong determination your faith in the Only True GOD, and Lecture 2 of this Salvation Series is about creating your reverence for the Only True GOD, not giving your life to Jesus in an unrealistic urge towards an abandonment of the basic principle of humanity, as GOD had designed us, according to the Divine Doctrine Of New Birth.
THE BASIC PRINCIPLE OF HUMANITY:
GOD ALMIGHTY deliberately created every human being, (male and female) in its spiritual self “….in HIS own image, in the image of GOD created HE him: male and female created HE them.” Genesis 1:26, 27
GOD created us on earth as HE had created HIS sons in heaven, to reflect certain basic features of HIS own DIVINITY. HE then reserved to HIMSELF the right to bless who ever in himself or herself a character that pleases HIM, or punish who ever create himself or herself a character that displeases HIM.
HE also reserves to HIMSELF the prerogative of the end-point decision on every son or daughter of HIS, whether in heaven or upon the earth, whom to grant permanent existence (everlasting life), whom to remove completely from existence (everlasting destruction by hell-fire).
So, it is always wise for every potential child of GOD to create ab initio in his mind or in her mind, the total reverence for GOD ALMIGHTY which is dubbed in the scriptures as The Fear Of GOD, which one of the writers of the book, proverbs, called the beginning of knowledge (proverbs 1:7) and the writer of psalm 111 interpreted it as the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10).
SOME DISTINGUISHED SERVANT OF GOD FORGOT TO CREATE THE REVERENCE FOR GOD IN THEIR MINDS AND THEREFORE COULD NOT BENEFIT FROM THE FEAR OF GOD AS A CAUTIONARY FEATURE IN THEIR CHARACTER WHEN ANNOYED, DISAPPOINTED, OR SIMPLY CONFUSED BY HUMAN BEHAVIOUR AROUND THEM.
*we are not trying to disparage famous servant of GOD here, but to learn to avoid making their mistakes.
- PROPHET MOSES:
“And Moses said unto the LORD, wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? And wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight,that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me?
Have I conceived all this people? Have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the suckling child, unto the land which thou swearest unto their fathers?
Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? For they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh that we may eat.
I am not able to bear all this people because it is too heavy for me. And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight, and let me not see my wretchedness.” Numbers 11:11-15.
Moses was definitely rude to GOD there. He did not manifest any faith in the wisdom and in the limitless capability of GOD. He did not show GOD ALMIGHTY the fear, the reverence, and the hope in HIM and the willingness to persevere and bear errand for GOD. He was not even ready to adopt GOD’s prescription to solve the problems.
Eventually, he encountered Divine Discipline and was quite lucky not to be visited with Divine Condemnation like other human beings whom GOD considered not useful to HIM and quite irredeemable after several incarnations to the earth!
- PROPHET ELIJAH:
“And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them; and Elijah brought them down to the brook kishon, and he slew them there.” 1kings 18:40.
The number of the people whom Prophet Elijah slew were revealed in 1kings 18:19.
“Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the Prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat of Jezebel’s table. (A total of eight hundred and fifty souls were slaughtered by Prophet Elijah even though the GOD whom HE serve had issued HIS law, written with fire on Sinai in view of all Israel at the time of Moses,
“Thou shalt not kill.” Exodus 20:13
Why should a prophet of GOD seek to glorify GOD by disobeying GOD, by embarrassing GOD? GOD had answered Elijah’s prayer to glorify HIMSELF in public. “And it shall come to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art GOD, in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all those things at thy word.
Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD GOD, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. “1kings 18:36,37.
The Divine Instruction to Prophet Elijah was “…… Go, show thyself unto Ahab and I will send rain upon the earth:” 1kings 18:1.
Why did he go beyond his operating instructions to destroy willfully the works of GOD? He forgot to install adequate reverence for GOD in his mind, such a quality of reverence for GOD that would make him to always fear to contradict GOD, to offend GOD, or even to annoy GOD.
Having foolishly offended GOD, the same Elijah was begging GOD for death like his predecessor, Moses.
“But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and set down under a juniper tree; and he requested for himself that he might die and said, it is enough, now, O LORD, take away my life, for I am not better than my fathers.” 1kings 19:4.
Fortunately, through the agency of The Divine Doctrine of New Birth which GOD sent to the world through HIS Most Beloved Son, HIS Messiah to us, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, we are enjoined to seek life, life more abundant (John 10:10).and everlasting life.(John 12:50), not seeking death in frustration after disobeying GOD!
That is why at the very inception of our journey to GOD by New Birth, we must all create reverence in our minds for GOD to the extent that we instructively fear GOD, refuse to contradict HIM, disobey HIM or annoy HIM.
Your Meditation 1:
“Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the FATHER: for my FATHER is greater than I.” John 14:28.
Of course, GOD ALMIGHTY had long time ago told father Abraham that HE IS THE ONLY ALMIGHTY ONE of the universe (Genesis 17:1), but our wicked senior brother, o former son of GOD formerly bearing the name of Lucifer, would not let us believe that truth lest we wrest our minds free from the captivity of his lies to diminish the quality of our essential humanity as images of GOD, after GOD’s likeness (Imago Dei) if we deliberately misconstrue the only True GOD as less than HE truly is, GOD is no wise diminished, we conceptually diminish our own vision of our true status and thereby fail to take the steps to reach the status of the true children of GOD. We may even never reach that status forever, if for instance, we conceive The Only True GOD as a molten calf, always less than even a cow!
The only True GOD who created us human beings for HIS own pleasure, as The only GOD of the universe and we and HIS sons in heaven are the only categories of HIS creatures whom HE cherishes as members of HIS universal family!
HE holds regular meetings with HIS sons in heaven, (Job 1:6), whereas HE finds it difficult to locate any resemblance of any authentic group of HIS children upon the earth (Psalm 53:2,3). Most of those prancing up and down in churches all over the place do not even have their names in HIS BOOK, let alone being regarded as HIS children!
(Exodus 32:33) How could HE be expected to manifest HIMSELF to the earthly worshippers who take their cue from Lucifer to embarrass HIM all the time by shouting upon HIM in the name of Jesus, in the mighty name of Jesus; in the sacred and powerful name of Jesus, to do them a favour whereas that same Jesus had told us upon the earth that GOD created HIM “…… I ascend unto my Father, and to my GOD, and to your GOD.” John 20:17. Father, the highest care giver, GOD, The Creator!
Who gave our Lord and Saviour, Jesus the name which you people now try to use under the prompting of Satan to embarrass both Jesus and the Lord GOD ALMIGHTY? Even the Holy Spirit is embarrassed!
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS; for he shall save his people from their sins.” Matthew 1:21.
GOD ALMIGHTY, JEHOVAH, send down the name, Jesus, for his son through an angel of HIS to Joseph (Matt 1:20,21).
Your Meditation 2:
“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name; them that thou gavest me I have kept and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition……” John 17:12.
“I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me: and they have keep thy word.” John 17:6.
“I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” John 17:4.
Everybody who wants to return to the status of a child of GOD and who also wishes to maintain that status forever has to put the yoke of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, on his or her neck and embark on his or her New Birth Studies under the disciple whom our Lord Jesus Christ taught New Birth for seven additional years and whom GOD ALMIGHTY thereafter elevated to the status of a Divine Messenger.
“…… and more than a prophet……” Matt 11:9.
The New Birth Protocol of the kingdom of GOD is as follows:
You Revere The Holy Spirit, in speech, in attitude, in gestures. Don’t call Him by the Greek misnomer, Holy Ghost!
You revere our Lord, Saviour, and Master Jesus Christ in speech, in attitudes, in gestures. Don’t ever call Him GOD or Father, for the Lord declared that He is neither!
For GOD ALMIGHTY, you go more than reverence; you actually worship HIM in your mind and let that worship influence your speech, attitudes, gestures, and your devotions to HIM all through your life, in every facet of that life!
GOD ALMIGHTY HAS NO EQUAL, NO RIVAL, No deputy, no associate, no alternative! so said GOD HIMSELF (Isaiah 44:6,8,45:5,44:24,46:9,10)
So said Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Master of New Birth (Matt 6:13, John 14:28,John 20:17,John 10:29)
So said Prophet Moses (Deut 4:39, Deut 4:12, Deut 8:18,Deut 8:19,20)
So said King David, a prophet of GOD too (1chronicles 29:10 – 13)
So said prophet Isaiah (Isaiah 40:28, Isaiah 28:4)
