Do not change the religion…Seek God
Who is Satan?
Satan is the deceiver who leads the world to sin. He is also called the great dragon and serpent of old. He is the owner of every satanic character of sin, rebellion, and lust seen in the flesh, who is also called father. You are of your father the devil, and it is your will to practice the desires(which are characteristics) of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar and the father of lies and half-truths. (John 8:44)
Let’s go this straight…Life is an opportunity that is granted only once! Let us gain wisdom, knowledge, and understanding from God to live a purposeful life because man is born of the flesh and will surely die at any moment.
The fact is, there is a record of birth and death for man on earth. However, only a few numbers of people recognize their core purpose of the allotted time given to them between their birth and death period. After death, our body lies here but where does the soul go to? What happens to it? Man does not care about it. We bring nothing to this world when we are born and we take nothing back from what we acquired through our hardships, after death. His life ends with the difficulty he faces to gain these things.
But God desires for every man who is born in the flesh to be born of the spirit before he dies. Unless one is born of the spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. Hoe to be born again in the spirit? Being born again in the spirit is an experience! What is the kingdom of God? The kingdom of God needs to be sought out personally. God calls man, “Come back!” Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire(Revelation 20:15)
What will you choose? Don’t we all have one another father? Isn’t He the one God who created us? Then why do we hurt each other? Death can occur at any moment and we are drawing closer to it. Before we die, we need to get clear knowledge personally for the queries given below:
- Who am I?
- Where did I come from?
- Why am I here?
- What are the talents bestowed on me?
- Where am I going?
When God looks down from heaven upon the earth…
Man, who had the power over death and who was created by God for his glory, in His own image and likeness, has been given the power and authority to rule over the earth. However, he chose to wander away from God’s way and took a path of his own.
Man, who should have sought God and live his life seeking and knowing God’s will, is now denying the very existence of God. He misused the knowledge and abilities given by God to make idols and eventually made religions. Giving different names to those idols and religions, he kept on changing from religion to religion, community to community, losing his serenity and becoming a slave to fear thereby living in darkness. Al religions proclaim equally that “God is one”, but man doesn’t know who is God?
One of the biggest trends that we see today is the conversion of religions. Changing religions, denominations, and groups do not bring any change in the behavior or character of a person. Instead, let us be God seeker, seeking His perfect will and confirm His existence individually. Once we receive a personal experience from God Almighty, we must believe and decide to walk in His ways.
Please stop! Refrain from changing religions and compelling others to convert from their religion! Surely we will die one day. Death awaits us. Before that, we need to seek God with an open heart, with an inquisitive mind, with a will to know the truth, first, we need to closely read all the religious books and finally the Bible which is the Word of God. What is the Bible? It is legally written law to reinstate a broken relationship. It is the only book that speaks about the salvation of man’s soul. Normally it is very difficult for one to understand the Bible by merely reading it because God has closed his inner organs due to rebellion and sin. These inner organs will never be opened unless a God-seeking man desires to take spiritual rebirth and asks for it. Bible is NOT a religious book! Also, it does not belong to a person, organization, or community. This book is given to those who believe in the existence of God, for them to obey. It consists of the law of God’s kingdom. When we start obeying the laws of this book, we are led to the light. God is light. Hence, when we diligently seek after God, we will surely find him, be delivered from lack of knowledge, captivity and the lost father-son relationship will be restored.
Who is God?
God is the Lord of the visible and invisible realm. God is not a founder of the religion. Neither has He named any religion or community. Instead, God created a man who became His son and God became man’s father. A relationship between God and man was made on the earth in the beginning. He gave the earth He created into the hands of man, His son. However, man became deceitful and rebellious against God and was expelled out of his ruling position. Now man has gone away from God and does not know who is God. Later on, man sought out to make his own gods and religions came into existence. However, man does not belong to any religion; he belongs to God alone. Man who is separated from God must return. Here it is not the religion, but man’s heart to be changed. In the name of religion, man is torturing and killing mankind. We have reached a stage where a man cannot recognize man. Today a generation is multiplying all over the world who does not love, obey, and care for their parents. Let us ponder for a second … The one who wounds, the one who gets wounded, and the one who gets killed; aren’t they the children of the same father? Isn’t there only one family and one God? But today, we see on earth different Gods, religions, and groups. Among them, who can save us?
On the day of creation, the man who was made holy later rebelled against God became unholy and the presence of the Almighty God departed from him. Curse and demonic lusts started to have dominion over man. The power of curse entered the human body in three levels: outwardly like a garment, inwardly like water, and into his bones like oil. Due to this reason, curse con continues from generation to generation even today.
There are five ways in which demonic lusts have dominion over a human body, namely – the lust of the flesh, lust of eyes, pride of life, homosexuality, and other carnal lusts. It prevails as a dangerous disease in flesh. T restore man to the original purpose and plan of his existence, God Himself chose to suffer that He might sanctify the people with His own blood. Therefore, since [these His] children share in flesh and blood [the physical nature of mankind], He Himself in a similar manner also shared in the same [physical nature, but without sin], so that through [experiencing] death He might make powerless (ineffective, impotent) him who had the power of death that is, the devil-and [that He] might free all those who through [the haunting] fear of death was held in slavery throughout (Hebrews 2:14,15) Under heaven and earth above, there is only ONE NAME given for the salvation of mankind, that name is ‘JESUS’. But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name -who were born, not of blood, nor the will of the flesh, nor the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12, 13) If we believe and live as God’s children as the light of this world, in the end, we can return to the kingdom of God. But, if we refuse this opportunity and live as a part of religion or denomination, we will have wasted our lives as a child of satan in the kingdom of darkness and finally be thrown into the eternal lake of fire.
