    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Who do these voices in my head belong to?

       How can you tell when you feel pushed to do something if it is your thought, sent from God, or sent from the Devil?

       Well if anyone ever figures out how to tell if something is your thought, tell me. I once wrote in my personal journal, 'Who are we to say that every thought that we have is not from God? Therefore, glorify God with every thought and with every breath.' How do I know that this entry was my idea? I can't say that I 100% know it is my idea.

       There usually are some ways to tell what God wants you to do and what the Devil wants you to do. First, does it break any of the Ten Commandments? There are many problems that are harder to discern, though ( i.e. - Is this the women/man God wants me to marry? ). Never rush into anything. The Devil wants to rush you, God is infinitely patient. Not even prayer helps if your rushing into something ( this is because no matter what the result of the prayer, your probably still going to do it ).

       Never trust your feelings. These are easily manipulated by the Devil. For years, the Devil had me under the delusion that I was not saved, keeping me in a depressed state where I was constantly worried about the future.

       Fleeces ( praying that if the answer to *insert questions* is *insert answer*, then such and such will happen ) won't help either, if your being thrown into a frenzy.

       So what do you do if you absolutely need a question answered? Well, that still sounds like your rushing it, if you absolutely need an answer. Be patient, pray every chance you have. Your answer will come... eventually.

    I wanted to add>> sitting in complete silence and allowing the answer to come forth after praying... you always learn more from listening
