Hello friends, The Gospel According to John tells us that God is the beginning of everything! Nothing that came into existence did so without him! Let me repeat that, NOTHING that has come into existence did so without him!
In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him, not even one thing came into being that has come into being. In him was life, and the life was the light of men, and the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it (John 1:1-5)
Friends, rather it be good or bad, nothing came into existence without God. I will admit that I do believe powerful forces are using the sons of God to project evil into this world, but according to the above scripture, those forces could not exist without the Most High who is the head of all rule and authority.
For in him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and having been filled, you are in Him, who is the Head of all rule and authority (Colossians 2:9-10).
We have nothing to fear friends for we know God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of peace, love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). We can put our minds to ease with that. The devil wants to rob us of our peace by telling us we serve the wrong God. She wants us to believe man is so powerful he can corrupt God’s word to the point we have no way to escape death. I do not believe that, and neither should you.
We must trust the Lord and lean not to our understanding. I was thinking the other day how terrible it would be to get to the end of my life and lose my soul because I was fearful of serving the wrong God. I prefer to be sure. I want to walk in the abundance of the Lord. Serving God gives us a confident mind. Why are we allowing the devil to rob us of that?
And if it seems evil in your eyes to serve Jehovah, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve – whether the gods whom your fathers served Beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living, but as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah (Joshua 24:15).
Jesus is the Word made flesh (John 1:14). He was sent by the father to be the light that shines in the darkness. When John the Baptist saw Jesus coming, he said, Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29)! No sin is too great for him to cover! If you believe in the name of the one sent by God, by his authority you are his child.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become children of God, to the ones believing into his name (John 1:12).
No one said living for God is easy. We will experience trials and setbacks, but they come to make us strong. Study to strengthen your spirit man/woman. Jesus is the light and that light shines through you! We are living vessels. Be blessed, be encouraged! It is finished work!
