There are many who do not know the Purpose of Life because they lack Identity, both in the Church and in the World. To find our identity we need to go to God’s Word, the Bible to know our true Purpose for Life. From daily observations of life around us there are daily Births and Deaths.
The Bible says there is a Time to be Born and a Time to Die.
“The Word of God is Authority, because God is the Supreme Ruler of the Universe. He planned it, Created it and He made the Rules. He prescribed the Laws – the Scientific Laws, Laws of Nature, the Laws of Holiness, the Laws of Morality, the Laws of Spiritual Life, and the Laws of Faith. His Word is Supreme Authority. Jesus is the Word made flesh (John 1: 14) so He is our Authority.
“THE MESSIAH IS OUR KING:
He is The Eternal King, The Sovereign Master, The Majesty on High, The Absolute Monarch, The Anointed One, The Creator, The Eternal Word, The Living Truth, The Absolute Holy One,
The Righteous Ruler, The King of Peace, The Lord of Lords and Lord above All
The Legal Authority and Judge of all Men, The All-powerful and All-knowing God, The Victorious Lord of Glory and the Source of Light, Love and Everything Good.
Y’shua is of course, much more than can be explained. He is the Beginning and the Ending – the Limitless One” (By Don Stanton)
NOW, I will read Scriptures from the Bible itself - BELIEVE HIS WORD!
John 1:1 “In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God” Genesis 1:1 “In the Beginning God Created the Heavens and the Earth” John 5: 39 “Search the Scriptures:for in them ye think ye have Eternal Life: &they are they which testify of ME John 4: 24 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth”John 8:31, 32 “If ye continue in My Word, then are ye My Disciples indeed: and ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free” Proverbs 13: 13 “Whosoever despiseth the Word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the Commandments shall be Rewarded” John 12: 48 “He that rejects Me and receiveth not My Words hath one that Judgeth him: the Word that I have Spoken, the same shall Judge him in the last day” 1 Peter 1: 26 “But the Word of the Lord endureth forever…. 1 Peter 1: 23 “Being Born Again not of corruptible seed but of Incorruptible, by the Word of God which Lives and Abides Forever” Rev. 22: 18, 19 “For I testify unto every man that hears the Words of the Prophecy of this Book; if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this Book. And if any man shall take away from the Words of the Book of this Prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City and from the things which are Written in this Book” Rev.20: 11, 12 “And I saw a Great White Throne and Him that sat on it, from whose face the Earth and the Heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the Dead, small and great stand before God: and the Books were opened: and another Book was opened, which is the Book of Life and the dead were judged out of those things that were written in the Books according to their works. And the Sea gave up the dead which were in it and Hell delivered up the dead which were in them and they were judged every man according to their works. And Death and Hell were cast into the Lake of Fire: This is the second Death. And whosoever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.”
Each person born in this World is an Entity and has the Name registered in the records and when he dies, again it is registered in the World’s records.
BUT our true and meaningful Identity is found when we are Born-Again or converted by repenting & committing our lives to our Savior, forsaking our sinful life styles and determined to follow our Lord Jesus Christ Who gives us the Gift of Eternal Life and our name is Register in Heaven – the Lamb’s Book of Life.
A wonderful miracle takes place in a person by the Holy Ghost for He transforms a Hell bound sinner into a Child of the Living God and imparts the Peace of God in him.
All your sins are remitted and you are cleansed on the inside by the Blood of Jesus Christ and made a brand New Creation and placed IN Christ.
You are given a Robe of Righteousness in place of your filthy self-righteous rags.
You are accepted into God’s Family through the merits of the Blood-Sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
You have Peace with God for He has nothing against you now for you are IN Christ.
You are no more under condemnation for you have a Witness in your heart that you belong!
Both the Father and the Son come into your heart to stay – not just visiting!
You are so happy inside and know that a transaction has taken place between you & God
You do not want to defile your Garments & want to keep it unspotted by the World, the flesh or the Devil
You desire to do all that He wants you to do and so you are Baptized in water as required.
You are filled with such love for God, the people of God and for more of God
You have received the greatest Gift of Eternal Life and want to tell everyone about this.
You have a great hunger to know the Word for you desire to know Him more and more.
When you hear God has another Gift for His Children who are made clean on the inside, the Holy Spirit Baptism, you begin to ask for this Gift until you are Baptized.
Daily be conscious of God inside of you and you are the Temple of God. If we defile this temple He will destroy us! Pro. 13: 13
Now that you have found your Identity IN Christ, life becomes meaningful and satisfying.
Then you ask God what can I do to serve Him and there is so much more that He will reveal.
As long as you live daily conscious of God IN YOU, you will notice the Word will instruct you and guide you, and soon it will be His Voice to you.
Read as much of God’s Word as possible daily and spend much time alone with Him and you will soon have a rich fellowship with the Father through Jesus Christ.
You will begin to pray to the Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ with the help of the Spirit of God for anything and everything. These are the most powerful activities in your New Life and you will grow in the Knowledge of God and begin to find small ways that you can serve the Lord.
Keep doing all that He tells you to do and when you are faithful, He cannot fail.
His Eyes are upon you and He hears you when you call and He will never leave you nor forsake you.
He has placed you in the Palm of His Hand and says none can pluck you out and He means it, but you must stay there as you have the choice to walk out from there.
When you get too busy with many other things and neglect reading and hearing His Voice in the Word and your prayer time is hurried and becomes short, it should be a check in your heart that all is not right and you will lose sight of your commitment to Him.
The Bible says, when we turn back from following Him we are not fit for the KINGDOM.
When taking Communion and do not CONSIDER the communion emblems that remind us of the Precious Price paid for our Salvation from Hell, we will be condemning ourselves.
We are told to examine ourselves to see whether we are still in the faith and growing to avoid becoming a backslider and miss the call of God or purpose of God for your life so that you will safely reach your destiny in God at the end of your life-span (whenever that is)
No matter what trials and tests may come to block or hinder your progress in the Lord, you must keep your eyes on the Author and Finisher of your Faith and keep doing the Word of God so that at the end of your journey in life you shall be saved.
We will be judged by the Word He has spoken to us & His Words that we have read. John 12: 46-48
When you BELIEVE GOD’S WORD AND DO HIS WORD YOU WILL ENJOY HIS PROMISES TO YOU AND YOU CAN THROUGH YOUR LIFE AND TESTIMONY MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OTHER LIVES AND WIN SOULS FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD FROM THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS.
Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col. 3: 16
God will bless for He Watches over His Word to fulfill it as we let the Word govern us. Jer. 1: 12
Those who would like their names to be in the Lamb’s Book of Life, you could surrender to follow our Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World by forsaking your sinful lifestyle. When you do this now calling on the Name of Jesus Christ He will respond to you for HE IS ALIVE AND HE WILL NOT TURN YOU AWAY FOR HE LOVES YOU AND DIED FOR YOU SO YOU. John 3: 16-33
