OBEDIENCE

Ironically but not surprisingly, too many people before checking out of this “Planet Hotel” will NEVER understand what it really means to be OBEDIENT to God. Even more so are those seen as “religious men-of-God” whose ways and behaviors at most time reflected otherwise – and without themselves even knowing it! Can you imagine that? The only person who could and ever passed the test of OBEDIENCE with flying colors is Jesus because He obeyed God until death on the cross as recorded in Philippians 2:8.

As such, all humans should see Jesus as the one and only good example of what OBEDIENCE to God is all about as echoed in Philippians 2:5. If anyone would like to be seen as a real man-of-God,  then Jesus having claimed himself as the Son of God is credible enough not to raise any doubts and be questioned. Why? That’s because Jesus did not just simply claim who He was and is, whether it’s according to Man’s standards or God’s standard. Jesus had, in every ways and opportunities, proven He is more than meet the eyes. If not, God would not have exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name so clearly said in Philippians 2:8-9.

Perhaps, by now anyone and everyone reading up to this point may pause for a moment and smart enough to pose the question, “Why did Jesus as the Son of God still need to be OBEDIENT to God since most people already knew Jesus is God?” Since this question asked is according to Man’s standards, so the best I can do to answer this question is to ask back another question that is also according to Man’s standards.

And that is: “Why do you think your children who are your own flesh and blood need to be obedient to you as a father or mother?” If you can see the logic of this question, surely you can see even better the divine logic of the one true Almighty God who sent Jesus, can you not?

As a human being blessed with a mind to think, reason and the freewill to choose, one should know better that everyone is having tasked with the responsibility to figure out who the one true Almighty God is and what’s more – to ‘come clean’ with Him with a heart and conscience. Have you done this ABC homework yet or choose not to?

One does not simply get confused and mock oneself to think, believe or even to claim without divine scriptures to support one’s claim that all different religious “faith” or even “prayers” are leading to the one true Almighty God all the same. Yes, of course it is – if it’s according to Man’s standards. No, it is NOT – if it’s according to God’s standard! It’s clear-cut enough, is it not? If it’s not – that’s because one does not know how to tell the difference between Man’s standards and God’s standard and so surely get confused to think that Man’s standards and God’s standards are the same. If your wife as flesh and blood can give birth to babies, does that mean you also as flesh and blood can do the same too?

Perhaps, let’s not even talk about OBEDIENCE for a start because of three major reasons.

  1. The subject of OBEDIENCE is rather something like next to PERFECTION that no humans are “righteous” and “holy” enough to meet such divine enlightenment, let alone enrichment of one’s spirituality – if only based entirely on one’s own effort without God’s help.
  2. People are just too knowingly arrogant and unrepentant to know what it means to be OBEDIENT, let alone OBEDIENT to God until death.
  3. No one can really have the greatness of HUMILITY to be OBEDIENT to God like Jesus! Anyone can easily talk about HUMILITY or perhaps even claim to “possess” it but only usually by words and not by deeds so much so one is not even HUMBLE enough to reciprocate the ‘Amazing Grace of God.’  That’s the reality no one is brave enough to admit, let alone face it!

The only people who knew and understood what being OBEDIENT to God is and all about are the ‘born again’ Christians. That’s because only Christians were the ones HUMBLE enough to have had become remorseful and realized the urgency to ‘come clean’ by having to REPENT of their sins to accept Jesus Christ as their SAVIOR!

Instead, let’s talk about DISOBEDIENCE first. Only then will people understand and see the big picture of what OBEDIENCE to God until death is and all about. The reason people NEVER ever understood the greatness of OBEDIENCE that actually comes from having to have HUMILITY is because people had always seen OBEDIENCE as the greatest weakness of humans. That’s where the biggest problem is – people never had gotten down to see the greatness of HUMILITY that could change them for good!

That is why the world NEVER stopped producing plenty of super-idiots around to compound the already despicable existing conditions of living and learning. What’s even worse is when humans even getting punished with all kinds of man-made disasters would still see it as no big deal to learn from it anymore, let alone FEAR and OBEY God. Can you imagine that?

One can unmistakably and undeniably see all the social ills keep plaguing humanity that is getting worse than ever. But what’s really baffling and disturbing is that people do not even know it was all because of DISOBEDIENCE to God due to our sinful nature that caused everything to have gone wrong!

Unless and until people understood the danger and fallacy of DISOBEDIENCE to God, they obviously NEVER ever knew or would have easily seen why Jesus as the Son of God still needed to go through such test as that of Adam and Eve who failed to become OBEDIENT to God until death but in which case, Jesus succeeded instead! Check this out in Acts 4:12 and Romans 5:15-17.

So, that means it’s imperative that one needs to travel back in time to the biblical era to study about the history of God’s chosen people [the Israelites] as always having had no qualms all the time to display their DISOBEDIENCE to God so truthfully recorded in the Old Testament of the Bible.

Given what has been known as truth that many people knew Adam and Eve failed to obey God’s commandment in the beginning and what more, followed by the ‘stiff-necked’ Israelites leading up to the time of Jesus’ death on the cross, the subject of humans ever known to have become OBEDIENT to God leaves much to be desired.

In short, one can safely say humans are like born REBELLIOUS because biblical history had proven that the more God sent prophets to warn His people [Israelites] about the consequences of their sinful nature to REPENT, the more they REBELLED against God by purposely straying further and further away just to carry on with their polytheism that led to……

The curse of IDOLATRY 

Civilization ever worst problem from ancient times until today is that of idols-worshiping. The ancient Israelites were the earliest people to know who the one true Almighty God is that by right all humans regardless of race should worship today. The Bible already revealed that the ancient Israelites got punished severely because of idolatry and yet people today still never ever learned from their mistakes and all the more indulge in idols-worshiping that God always abhorred. This could be seen as most irritating and insulting to God and no one who still oppose God shall be spared the challenge from God himself what He said in Isaiah 44:7.

But if you read the chapter of Isaiah 44, you will know how despicable and stupid it is to engage in idolatry which is nothing but outright and ridiculous DISOBEDIENCE to God that many people until today still do not see the serious consequences.

Although Moses, not as one of the idolaters but considered as a ‘man-of-God’ and righteous in His sight, yet he failed once to obey God’s commandment BECAUSE of the curse of idolatry. When he couldn’t stand a spell of ranting from the rebellious and idolatrous Israelites for having NO WATER to drink in the wilderness, he turned to God for help. So God commanded him to strike the rock and water will come out of it. Instead, Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff and thus disobeyed what God exactly commanded him to do in Numbers 20:1-13.

Because the Israelites were so rebellious and idolatrous during the ancient times, one thing is pretty clear that stood out for everyone now to see – they did not TRUST and have FAITH in God who was so GRACIOUS to them and yet they were not grateful to Him in return. Instead, they easily got agitated and worse, they could not stand even a minor test of having NO WATER to drink. Can you imagine that?

Quite frankly, idolatrous people are dangerous and hot-tempered as they could easily get agitated and flew into a rage to break any laws with impunity. That’s why in the case of the ancient Israelites, even with Moses as God’s chosen prophet in their midst, yet they had no qualms in blaming and cursing God for having brought them to nowhere and die of thirst when Moses was trying his best to OBEY God’s commandments to bring them into the promise land.

As Yahweh is always known to be GRACIOUS and NEVER ever failed to show compassion as testified in Isaiah 30:18-26; even then, as the one true Almighty God and in another case, He even tried to REASON with them through one of His chosen prophets like Isaiah that if they [the Israelites] gave up idols-worshiping and THROW THEM AWAY, everything would be as good as like “Heaven on Earth” for them to enjoy.

Can you imagine that – the one true Almighty God went so low to HUMBLY plead with humans to be OBEDIENT just to save them from self-destruction for being obsessed with among other things, idolatry and waywardness?

Just imagine what it is like if all humans, whether Israelites or not, were really OBEDIENT to God and that everyone really all the time would be enjoying what God promised in Isaiah 30:26 that says; “the moon will shine like the sun.”  Wow, if that is really the case, then every night from then until today would have stayed so bright that we do not actually need to switch on lights everywhere which means no such thing as “Earth Hour” to observe and no electricity to waste! Now this sure sounds more like “Heaven on Earth,” don’t you think?

“So, isn’t it even nicer to know the one true Almighty God is treating you more special than you could ever have imagined?”

If the one true Almighty God showed LOVE and COMPASSION and always allowed humans the ‘second chance’ to REPENT while still standing but only that humans are always too ‘stiff-necked’ and arrogant to do so, can you then say, something is very wrong with the loving God and not humans?

But, as of then and now, to have “Heaven on Earth” is totally out of the question because of humans’ DISOBEDIENCE to God! Perhaps, the only possibility of having “Heaven on Earth” to become a reality as prophesied in the Book of Revelation 21 is only when Jesus is coming back again and He will as promised.

So, make no mistake about it. Just because the Israelites were the chosen people of God, it does not mean God will spare them from punishment even if they disobeyed and sinned against Him for worshiping idols and whatnot. Indeed, they had it coming and evidently suffered the worst ever to date is known to the world as the Holocaust during the Second World War because of having warned of such possible affliction to happen ahead in Ezekiel 11:16-18.

If Christians always having every opportunity to read the Bible and yet still have failed to become OBEDIENT men-of-God, don’t you think it is even worse than you could ever have imagined for those not yet become Christians? Do you know why?

There could be a number of reasons behind that are compounding the issue but it’s better not to dwell on them one by one in “details” here because one is even seen as a “devil” for the telling the TRUTH in details. Can you imagine that?

Basically, the main reason is Lucifer [Satan] having the power to harden the hearts of humans and even “Christians” who failed to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ according to God’s standard to end up becoming incredulous enough to rebel and disobey God without even knowing it. Again, can you imagine that?

The ugly truth is; humans and even “Christians” have been under the spell of the DECEIVER [Lucifer] for far too long to come to their senses and to be able to see what went wrong since what happened in Genesis 3:1-7. So it is clear enough that God sent Jesus to put things right again for humans but too bad, humans are STILL not smart enough to see such simple TRUTH for nearly two thousand years since Jesus died and resurrected! Can you imagine that?

If those who professed themselves as “men-of-God” and yet so sadly, cannot even speak where the Bible speaks and silent where the Bible is silent but are living by all the religious “ways of men” that are not according to God’s standard, thus having become disobedient men-of-God instead; what more can you expect from those who are totally lost in sin to repent and be redeemed to become OBEDIENT to God?

For 101% sure, the world today badly needed real men-of-God [true Christians] to lead people back on the correct path to God but if those “men-of-God” are not capable enough to show lost souls the good example of following Jesus every step of the way without deviating one bit from it; then again, what more can you expect from those who are lost if they still keep ignoring the top priority to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus?’

But then too bad, whether even Christians deny it or not, it is still a bad case of DISOBEDIENCE plaguing humanity throughout all centuries until today. Not surprisingly, it has become a nightmare even for true Christians to preach the ‘Good News’ of Jesus to a world of confused people because of DISOBEDIENCE to God.

Christendom itself is undeniably seen as having been badly divided by divisions and denominations that started around 500 AD. The worst thing to have ever given a wrong birth out of such delusion of humans is when all “men-of-God” believed that it’s “okay” not to say what Bible says and not to be silent where the Bible is silent according to Man’s standards.

But honestly, this is NOT OKAY according to God’s standard if one is a Bible-studying and God-fearing Christian. To find out more, read what the apostle Paul wrote in 1 and 2 Corinthians.

PERFECTION and UNITY attained only through OBEDIENCE to God

Even then, the apostle Paul was a having a very difficult and testing time dealing with the issue of divisions from the first century churches that he, together with Peter and other disciples had established. So, what more could any true Christian do in these modern times that are no better than the first century? Perhaps, the only one thing any true Christian could do is to keep on suffering for the cause of Christ and not let the cause of Christ to suffer and leave the rest to God.

But the question is; who wants to SUFFER for the cause of Christ these days? Instead, even “Christians” are more like using the cause of Christ to enrich themselves. Can you imagine that?

That’s why, not even multitude of “prayers” said will help to resolve such centuries old issue. In fact, it is no longer about saying “prayers” in such a serious case. It is about bringing back the heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ even for “Christians” to set their hearts right with God according to His standard and not Man’s standards to say “prayers” only when tragedy strikes!

If not, it will really take an unprecedented and powerful ‘miracle’ from God for all divided Christian brothers and sisters today to come back and stand united as CHRISTIANS only, whether at Antioch [Acts 11:26] then or now and not be identified by any other “division and denomination names” that could not even be found as having been authorized and endorsed by God in the Bible.

But sadly, little did we know? It is not possible for such ‘miracle’ to happen because God no longer use “miracles” to save humans. If He ever did, what’s the point then of having sent Jesus to die for us in the first place to set up the New Covenant that promised eternal life? The ‘miracle’ for humans to be saved from sin, death and the devil is all about TRUST and having lasting FAITH in the Lord God by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ and to become OBEDIENT to God until death!

That’s because, according to God’s standard, humans must pass the ‘act of kindness’ test on oneself first by reciprocating the divine kindness of the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ before one can go around to share God’s blessings to others with the humans’ act of kindness version and that itself is the miracle! Savvy?

If ever there was such a “tall order” [God’s commandment] coming from above that even “Christians” today are aware of, it will still never cross their minds to get it listed as the top and most important priority in one’s life to obey because of what the apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:16, Isaiah 40:13 and Isaiah 64:4. And that means, what the apostle Paul meant is, if anyone ever had been ‘born again’ to walk as a true Christian following in the footsteps of Jesus because of having the mind of Christ, one must never do otherwise and thus, fall back to the “ways of men” again.

For a true Bible-studying and God-fearing Christian, it’s so ironic and so hard to swallow with what happened to the church having built upon the rock as recorded in Matthew 16:18, now got so badly divided. Why do Christians having been delivered from the curse of sin, death and the devil and who should know better than the non-Christians what the Hope of Salvation in Jesus entails, yet still blindly and foolishly have gone back to the curse and no longer united in the body of Christ as one [1 Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 3:6; Romans 7:9] but awfully divided by so many denominations each having their own ways of interpretation and doctrines?

Perhaps, if one takes the trouble and time to study the Bible, one will know why. Until then, one cannot help but wonder how could such an unprecedented fall-away from the truth of the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ please the ungodly, let alone God?

To become a Christian is easy but it’s still not the end because God still looks in the heart of any “Christians” to see if one is true to oneself or not, let alone be OBEDIENT to Him with no questions asked. If, in any case, any “Christians” found out to one’s dismay that one did not actually become a true Christian according to the Word of God [the Bible], then it’s really a crying shame for being misguided and worse, if one still does not do anything about it.

Honestly, don’t you think it’s better for one to become a true Christian in God’s sight than as a Christian not true to oneself, let alone God? But you may ask; “what do you mean by ‘a true Christian’ in God’s sight? I tell you nothing but the truth – it’s quite simple really! I can’t understand why even some “Christians” failed to understand. If you can follow Jesus this close to become a God-fearing and Bible-studying Christian to do God’s will on earth as did Jesus, then you will know and can tell what does that mean with no problem at all.

Even before Jesus got arrested and crucified, He prayed to His Father in heaven for all those who believed in Him to stand UNITED as one in truth, love and in spirit in John 17:6-25, not to be divided and arguing with one another according to Man’s standards what’s mandatory and what’s not.

What really necessary and important for every true Christian is to become OBEDIENT to what God had commanded but the problem is, there are “Christians” who became obedient to what humans commanded instead. You know as well as God that it’s impossible for sinful humans to become as PERFECT like God that not even true Christians can deny. Perhaps, that is what most people usually tell you in the face if you are a Christian and that’s only because they rather obeyed the commandments of men than God. But does it mean it’s impossible for humans to become perfect?

To say the least, it is wrong to assume that God is always asking for PERFECTION from us without showing us how. That is the reason God sent Jesus as the one and only good example for Christians to follow that is according to God’s standard, but even then, there are “Christians” having problems following!

What pleases God to see is all Christians continue to TRUST and have FAITH enough to become OBEDIENT to Him until death and that is as good as having reached the stage of PERFECTION. Do you copy? Striving for perfection does not mean all Christians must give up their jobs and become full-time ministers to preach the ‘Gospel of Jesus.’ Assuming all of them did so, even then, that’s not having even done half of an excellent job compared to Jesus.

But if you, whether as a Christian or not, could so much sacrifice your life as in the case of  Jesus to save mankind, then you would have really done an excellent job to become PERFECT as Jesus! Can you?

But little did we know? It is only by starting to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that is already the first crucial step towards making our OBEDIENCE to God in the right direction to reach PERFECTION! If only everyone as Christians is smart enough to follow in the footsteps of the apostle Paul to suffer for the cause of Christ in 2 Corinthians 12:9-10, then who says PERFECTION is only a business for God when it is God who showed us the spiritual business to meet PERFECTION through our Lord Jesus Christ?

What the apostle Paul was trying to say is; all he only needed was God’s GRACE, not status or titles like “Reverend” or “Father” to have PERFECTION. Just imagine, if God’s GRACE is already powerful and sufficient enough to help him pull through all the difficult times and still come out unscathed no matter how downtrodden he was and that to him is God’s standard of PERFECTION because he said, “For when I am weak, then I am strong,” then what else do all the divided Christian brothers and sisters need to come back and stand united in the body of Christ as only churches of Christ in Romans 16:16?

To be fair and square, one cannot see Christendom as the only entity facing the issue of “men-of-God” having become disobedient to the Word of God. If other man-made religions are no better and guilty of falling into the same trap, does that mean Christianity according to God’s standard can entirely be faulted as not perfect to embrace?

No, not necessary. You see, if you take the example of Christianity and that of Islam, you will clearly see the big difference and ultimately believe that the Islam religion as less than perfect for anyone to follow simply because one does not see the Prophet Muhammad as the “perfect” example for the Muslims to follow in the first place. Because of that, he made it utterly IMPOSSIBLE for Muslims to meet “perfection” that is not even according to Man’s standards if indeed they ever believed they could do so. If they could, they would not have needed all the religious edicts to fine, jail or both on any Muslims who failed to toe the religious line, would they?

So that only means; the problem in Islam is actually not the followers who are the Muslims, but the leader who founded the religion not on the right footing because of having shown himself as the imperfect example for his followers to follow. So in the case of Islam, there will never be ending imperfection to go around for centuries to come no matter what religious laws made mandatory!

But in the case of Christianity, it’s entirely a different scenario because the problem is not the leader but the followers!

You see, if there are Christians not able to meet PERFECTION according to God’s standard, it does not mean Jesus is imperfect, does it? On the contrary, Jesus had already been proven as PERFECT and having been exalted as one by God himself. So that only means one thing: there’s no problem to embrace Christianity because, unlike Islam, it’s not infected by virus of any kind from humans in the first place!

In order for Christians to reach PERFECTION, one only need to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and to fulfil God’s will and plan on earth as did Jesus. The way Islam and Christianity go about achieving PERFECTION are NOT the same simply because these two entities are entirely the opposite of one another. If one in Islam wants bloodshed by killing ‘”infidels” and the other one in Christianity prepared to shed blood by saving “infidels”, how could both sit together in the same boat? It does not makes sense, does it?

What I want to say is; if humans whether as Christians or Muslims are trying to have “perfection” according to Man’s standards and not God’s, it will NEVER work! That is why this is a universal problem affecting everyone and worse, if one is not a true Christian according to God’s standard. Meaning to say, what most conventional “religious” people are chasing today is a LOST cause. It’s not even an uphill task to meet “perfection” to say the least because it is not according to God’s standard in the first place!

Although they would love to see themselves attaining the highest level of “perfection,” they CANNOT and will NEVER be able to succeed because of not having ‘come clean’ and reciprocated the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ shown through the sacrifice of Jesus who is the one and only possible link to reach PERFECTION that is according to God’s standard, not Man’s!

As is the case in Islam, in order for the Muslims to meet their version of “perfection,” they by no means can do so because of not having a PERFECT example like Jesus to follow. Because of this, they had no choice but to come up with man-made religious syllabus for their followers to follow that will lead to further religious extremism.

As such, anyone failing to toe the religious line will get punished with fines and jail terms. So these are, of course, according to Man’s standards, not God’s. Why it is not God’s standard? That’s because the one true Almighty God who sent Jesus, does not “fine” or “jail” people but only deal with them on Judgment Day.

It’s a real tragedy they [Muslims] are even being insensitive to their own so-called righteous but unfruitful actions that will have a far-reaching implications than they could ever have imagined. Yet, they still do not have the common sense to tell or worse, even to figure out who the one true Almighty God is – since what the Serpent promised humans in Genesis 3:4!

At least, one good thing in Christianity that is according to God’s standard is that no one gets charged in court, fined and thrown into jails for not being “religious enough” to do this or that and whatnot. So what one can easily see the big difference between Muslims and Christians is that of each doing exactly the opposite of one another like God and the Satan.

Christians having as taught fruitfully to look towards Jesus as the perfect example are also always reminded not to judge and punish others but to save them by sharing the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ but this is not the case with Muslims . And that’s when it becomes pretty problematic and chaotic to others instead and worse, to themselves!

At best, Christians are only allowed to warn, rebuke and correct those who could have gotten a little carried away but cannot go to the extreme to act as “God” to mete out punishment on people as clearly stated in Romans 12:19. Even at worst, they are still comforted that the Lord will come to their rescue whether in times of sufferings or mourning. [Hebrews 13:5-6]

On the same note, the apostle Paul wrote and advised the young evangelist Timothy about the power of the Word of God that could put things right again in 2 Timothy 3: 16. That means, no one whether as Christian or not, have the right to violate the human rights of any person to punish him or her for having the freedom of expression to speak out whether against one’s own religion or that of others.

Preach the Word – At All Cost

Since all humans are known to have become separated from God because of what Romans 3:23 having perfectly substantiated it and that all humans having proven it as true all along; really then, don’t you think anyone, whether as Christian or not, should do the right thing now to bring it to a closure once and for all? Does one think one can really leave the one true Almighty God out of one’s life without even thinking about what one is and always will be in Romans 3:23 and not expect to face a future full of uncertainties on earth and after that? Think again!

What if “all of a sudden” you got snuffed out even while you were having fun and sun? At best, you only made your next-of-kin “rich” with whatever wealth you left. At worse, you suffered another big blow for not knowing where your SOUL will go.

The biggest question out of such tragic circumstances is; do you get the assurance [not insurance lah] that you are safe and in good hands of the Lord? No? If that is case, don’t you think you are skating on thin ice or perhaps swimming in sharks-infested territory?

Everyone will, sooner or later, still be held responsible and accountable for the destiny of one’s soul. And not that only, everyone is also held accountable for our physical bodies that do not belong to us. It’s only a temporary gift from above to help us find the real hidden treasures inside us. That means, God own us and not like the way Muslims claimed to own “Allah.”

So, God got every right to question us on Judgment Day what we done to protect and keep our bodies in good working order so that we could actually sing praises and worship Him [not man-made idols lah] as the one and only true Almighty God having all sovereignty over heaven and earth. And not forgetting that everyone too, has no choice but to answer Him whether one did figure out what’s the real purpose of humans existing here on earth or not!

Whether one likes it not, one still has to choose one’s path just the same as one must first decide what destination to fly to for holidays and having to do all the necessary homework and preparation before going there, right or not?  And that means; if you have to do what’s right to get to the right place, you can’t wait until the last-minute and still so sure of getting your air ticket to get there, can you? Maybe you still can while you are on earth but not, the moment your “welcome stay” on earth, expired!

But in this case, the only ticket to meet up with God in heaven is through Jesus, not man-made gods or whatever penance crafted by man-made religions.

“So amigo, better grow up now and be a SENSIBLE human being God created you to be before it’s too late and realized you had gotten kicked out of heaven like what happened to Lucifer!”

If you, like every one of us, shall be meeting our Maker one day, either to have an eternal holiday staying with Him, or end up somewhere else suffering instead, then is it not crucial enough to decide what is the next best thing to do now if one is to do what’s right, right?

So, to do what’s right, don’t you thing the third most important step is to….

Be OBEDIENT to God until death 

This may sound like something too far-fetched or too demanding. Nonetheless, it is a “tall order” indeed, yet unavoidable so to speak. But then, no one whether as Christians or not, can force it down your throat. You only take it one step at a time and the first simple step is to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus.’ Once you get the hang of it by studying the Word of God, you’ll be swinging from tree to tree better than Tarzan to save people by preaching the ‘Good News’ of Jesus.

Incidentally, the biggest question of all time is; to obey or not to obey? As a result, your decision to TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh is without doubt the most crucial one of all because that is what really matters to Him and to save your SOUL from eternal death!

As everything comes with a price, so is God’s promise of eternal life. If that is the case, why not name yourself as Mr Crucial now to ‘come clean’ and set your heart right with God than become one of the targets of Mr Lucifer’s hottest assets.

Unlike humans, Yahweh does not look at you what’s on the outside. So, you don’t have to dress up looking “religiously holy” on the outside to gain favor in His sight. No can do! No one who ever have professed to FEAR Him should treat the one true Almighty God as though He could easily be fooled by insulting Him with such insolence and vanity that would be so unnecessary and if indeed, one does have the good sense to tell.

If one’s destiny is entirely based on the precept of OBEDIENCE, then one must obviously become OBEDIENT to God until death like what Jesus did.  “So, obey what commandments to make such tall order of Yahweh possible?” Frankly speaking, if you have followed and reading articles from websites such as this, surely it’s obvious you should know by now what is the most significant answer without me having to say it bluntly or explicitly over and over, right?

But for the sake of those who still do not follow or that some are newbies, the answer is of course, obey God and any of His commandments and one of which is to urgently obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ as  the top priority to fulfil! Do you know why? If you know there is absolutely no other better reason than to SAVE your soul from the ‘second death’ then, you need to do something urgent than just knowing! But God is only interested in those who come back to Him with a heart and conscience. Do you have what He wants? Hope so!

Such “tall order” to obey God’s commandment to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is applying to anyone and everyone, even the Prophet Muhammad whether or not he’s alive today and as a sinner to REPENT before one’s nose get overly sensitive enough to smell from miles away what’s rotting in the aftermath of any man-made disasters [earthly death] as a result of one’s doings [sin].

But then, if any man-made disasters are to be avoided, humans have to be smart enough to “smell” ahead the danger of such disaster [earthly death] happening at any time and quickly do something about it before it’s too late. Now is the time to smell the freshness and goodness of what the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ can do for you before one starts emitting another smell that is not so nice for others to smell.

To live in sin is already man’s worst nightmare and to finally be punished with the earthly death because of it [sin] is yet not the end of everything. On the contrary, it’s only the beginning of eternal death that arguably should NOT befall anyone and everyone because of the ‘second chance’ allocated for everyone to reciprocate the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ while one still can. Therefore, it’s only SENSIBLE and logical not to leave such ‘unfinished business’ unattended to for too long because death strikes anyone, any seconds and it’s GAME OVER!

No amount of sympathies nor condolences will save a person anymore in the aftermath. Who said so? The Word of God [the Bible] tells me so! Check this out in Revelation 20:14-15. If your name is not found in the Book of Life, that’s only because you have yet obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus!’

The Danger of DISOBEDIENCE

Little did we know? It’s such a mind-boggling mystery to unravel about all the dangers that come with DISOBEDIENCE to God. If you have the common sense, then you should know it’s not just about God here only. It’s about everything. It’s about what we do and what we failed to do because these, among other things, are affecting the livelihood of every inhabitant on earth.

The need for humans to survive the onslaught of disasters whether man-made or not is the most crucial factor that needed to come into the spotlight so much so, not even the educated and right-thinking ones could ever have understood the undiscriminating impact on humanity whether it’s about DISOBEDIENCE to God or the things we do or not do.

We are not talking about what’s right or what’s wrong here. We are talking about the survivor of humanity here that every living thing, whether humans or not, is on the brink of annihilation which, to say the least, is all self-inflicted because of DISOBEDIENCE to God one way or another!

People until now have yet learned the painful lesson of DISOBEDIENCE. The Bible or perhaps the history of human’s civilization already recorded enough of humans’ insanity for people to learn from. Yet, even then and now, it does not seem to have any effect on people to REPENT whether from the simple bad habits of destroying oneself and others like smoking, open burning and whatnot. There are so many things at stake that humans will NEVER be able to overcome and solve because of DISOBEDIENCE to God and the law of nature.

People have always been taking it for granted so long about DISOBEDIENCE that it’s not even surprising for grown-ups not knowing the ugliness of what DISOBEDIENCE can do our physical lives, souls and all of what God created for our own good to protect us from harm. Yet, people still continue to blame God for all the bad things that happened but never ever grateful enough to have considered about reciprocating the ‘Amazing Grace of God.’ This is so insane of humans!

If everyone is not at all careful or perhaps even civic conscious enough to think about suffering all the serious consequences whether mentally, spiritually or physically because of DISOBEDIENCE, then sure enough, what everyone is courting is not God’s GRACIOUSNESS and MERCY but disasters be it man-made or not and worse of all – untimely death!

It is so frightening and yet so detestable that it NEVER crossed people’s minds that everyone has actually become “suicidal” for not knowing the serious consequence because of DISOBEDIENCE especially……

On environmental issue 

When any natural disasters happen at any time due to the side-effects of global warming and climate change, humans can no longer control or avoid all the consequences because of sheer ignorance. The reason is clear enough. In this case, humans have to suffer for having violated the law of nature.

Where carbon emissions, among other things, have caused untold damage to Mother Earth because of greed in the name of development, or those who can’t stop rampant open burnings because of having to perform religious rituals in the name of religion, it will have a great negative impact on everyone, nonetheless!

As a result, it will continue to cause untold sufferings to everyone because of the foolishness always rearing its ugly head even in the game of surviving by some desperately trying so hard to save the planet while others nonchalantly destroying it .

When there is really NO WATER to drink because of prolonged dry spell that will happen regularly sooner or later and at the rate humans’ harmful activities are destroying the world, this is what the worst-case-scenario is:

All one can only so much do if one is not a Christian but have this FEAR of dying, is actually “pray” for a quick death than having to suffer a prolonged one. No one can really hope for a “miracle” to happen in any of such man-made disasters. That’s because humans have played the greatest part in starting the momentum of destruction in the first place, is it not? But should there be any ‘miracles’ happening, it has to come from all humans within, not God.

The real ‘miracle’ to happen is something you don’t wait for it to happen – you have to make it happen! That only means one thing: you must by hook or by crook bring back your heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ with God first before one can TRUST and have FAITH enough in Him to do what He commanded us to do and that is to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus.’

By doing so without questioned asked, one shall be saved and always in good hands of the Lord no matter what happened. One no longer FEARS death or whatever disasters that may happen whether it’s man-made or not.

Now this is the top priority for everyone to perform such ‘miracle’ by oneself and on oneself to begin with. Once all humans have gotten smart enough to wake up and having recognized the important role of having a heart and conscience as the true guide, only then will everyone gets the chance to not only save the planet but one’s soul as well and thereby killing two birds with one stone which indeed is the greatest miracle of mankind that could have ever happened. Can it anyway? You tell me!

Social ills

There are too many topics to talk about that it will take more than one book to list them out. Perhaps, it will “suffice” if I just talk about driving on the road where it’s so easy to encounter and witness many silly things happening every time that one can relate with me for having experienced the same too.

Honestly, one can see all the bad things happening without miss every time one is driving on the road. Take the example of myself having had close shaves with super-idiots not knowing when to use or when not to use pedestrian crossings.

I have had personally come across people stubbornly disobeyed and walked on pedestrian crossings to get over to the other side even while the red light for them to cross was still on and they could easily get hit by any cars that have the right of way.

But what’s really a pain in the neck is when all these super-idiots are committing the dangerous act of ‘jay-walking.’ They do not even bother to look out for oncoming cars and expect you to look out for them instead. Can you imagine what a screw-up world we are living in?

Whose fault is it that if one refused to obey the traffic rules and ended up as another road accident statistic? Can one always blame God for such self-imposed tragedy that got oneself killed when one arbitrarily and wilfully disobeyed the red traffic lights and walked across as though one owned the road?

It’s really disturbing and so detestable to know that even grown-ups do not know the heavy price to pay for playing with the danger of DISOBEDIENCE even on a simple rule of law to safeguard one’s life while on the road. How could such grown-ups as parents ever showed one’s children the good example to do the right thing when they failed so miserably in the first place? Do humans today all live without a heart and conscience and not able to tell that one will meet up with the Maker one day to answer for such foolishness and insolence of one’s own life?

The Price of DISOBEDIENCE

Finally, it’s nothing short of the urgency for one to ask oneself the question: Does it pay to play with the danger of DISOBEDIENCE?

As death is non-discriminatory, even Christians true or not, too will die whether in such tragic incidents or not, but the good news is: Christians have the ‘Hope of Salvation’ in Jesus to be resurrected again one day. For this simple reason, Christians DO NOT have to fear death anymore because of having obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that promised eternal life to those ‘born again’ of water and the Holy Spirit.

Well, of course, that’s only possible when a Christian really TRUST and have enough FAITH in God to become OBEDIENT to Him until death like Jesus. But that does not mean one can become “suicidal” and act as a super-idiot to cause inconvenience to other road users and whatnot.

However, if one is not Christian, it is pretty certain that Yahweh will not hear one’s “prayers” as long as one had not had REPENTED of one’s sins and not having been reconciled with Him through Jesus Christ and according to God’s standard to become saved from sin, death and the devil. So why still say “prayers” that you know are already declared ‘null and void’ based on such precept that is according to God’s standard?

Understandably, if one does not have a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ, of course, that will make one’s “prayers” not powerful enough to be heard or worse not even heard. Just imagine, if even Christians were clearly told centuries ago according to James 4:3, what could be worse for non-Christians today?

So if that was addressing the Christians only and not others, what if you are not a Christian today? Who do you offer your “prayers” to then – a wooden god or stone god? But do you think you can place your high hopes on these “gods” for your “prayers” to be heard, let alone expect “miracles” to happen on any urgent matters? I don’t think so! So should you too?

Definitely, you are not capable of preparing for any ‘worst-case-scenario’ if you are not a Christian and yet if you expect your “prayers” answered every time is something not logical and really out of the question. Just ask yourself a simple question. How can you expect God to save your butt with a “miracle” when you have always ignored the urgent call to REPENT and come back on the correct path to Him? Are you being fair to God?

Are you even being fair to yourself for not saving your own butt when God’s messengers [Christians] have strenuously reached out to you and pleaded with you to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which itself is the greatest ‘miracle’ ever happened for anyone humbled enough to do so? That is what TRUSTING and having FAITH in the one true Almighty God is all about!

It’s the only super miracle ever performed by a normal human being that is YOU ! And God is still patiently waiting for everyone to perform this super miracle on themselves! You don’t have to become a super-man from the outside to bring out the super-man inside to make the miracle happen!

What you can no longer do or be ready to meet your Maker is when ‘sudden death’ strikes without warning. Certainly, you in no way can control and much less avoid such crisis that can happen when you least expected it. You do not even, by Man’s standards, have the time to say your “prayers” to ask Yahweh for forgiveness to spare you the eternal death.

Why? That’s because obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is not something as simple or easy as you can just ask in a “quickie” prayer at any time you fancy – you have to ‘act’ on it in accordance to the Word of God. Otherwise, you don’t even have time to say “bye bye” to your pets, let alone your loved ones!

If you still do not know what it means to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ first to become a ‘new creation’ that requires you to go through baptism by immersion, you will never know what being OBEDIENT to God is and what it means. It does not matter whether you get baptized in a river, pool or man-made tank in a church. You cannot do all these things at the last-minute when the wrath and fury of ‘sudden death’ wipe you out from the surface of the earth, can you?

Even a second delayed is a heavenly eternity lost!

However, at the rate it is going and with the standards of man-made religions adding fuel to the fire, it looks like no one would be so appreciative and receptive of the ‘miracle’ to kill two birds with one stone anymore. Is it not? But then, how can you even consider it as “smart” and “wise” to have ever had believed any man-made religions will save you from sin, death and the devil either?

Maybe you can but probably only because your religion, whatever it is, is what really matters to most humans like you now who do not realize that all man-made religions will bring about nothing but disasters one after another simply because it is not according to God’s standard.

And as long as what humans believe and worship especially man-made religions that cannot be divinely substantiated and worse, not even good enough to gain favor in God’s sight, you might as well surrender yourself fully to the one true Almighty God by obeying His commandment to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ than to fight or rebel against Him that will do you more harm than good.

The truth of the matter is; it’s not God punishing you for not obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus,’ you’re actually punishing yourself because of your sins that brought about DISOBEDIENCE to God that stopped you from doing the right thing according to God’s standard.

Just because there is connection of everything in this world, it does not always mean any natural or man-made disasters happening will only happen because of God’s will and not because of man’s doing or worse, the Satan behind it so that humans will blame God and make Him an enemy. If God is always around trying to save your butt, so is Lucifer also around trying to get you killed. So, don’t you think you should make up your mind quick who your real enemy is?

Even then, how could we ever blamed God for any tragedy that happened? It was always man’s doing because of their stubbornness to obey God and REPENT. If your canine friend does the same and not obey you, do you still want to keep it as your pet? If you as a human being can feel that way, what makes you think God cannot feel the same too?

But we all know from studying the Bible that God gave the ancient Israelites the ‘second chance’ just as He also is giving people today enough time and warning to REPENT from one’s sins by using Christians as messengers. Don’t you think? So if people whether during ancient times or modern times today still refuse to turn away from one’s sinfulness and ‘come clean,’ whose fault is it if people perished in disasters whether man-made or not and not knowing where one’s SOUL will go?

Any unfortunate tragedy happened actually serves as a good lesson for humans today to learn about the urgency to REPENT and obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to become saved from sin, death and the devil and not to ignore it. So, don’t wait for a tragedy to happen and then only wake up – it’s too late to say the least!

But some people asked, “why do kind-hearted and always do-good people need to repent?” The reason everyone, kind-hearted or not and do-good or not, needs to repent is because of sin in Romans 3:23 and by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ everyone shall be saved from sin, death and the devil. It does not matter who you are and what kind deeds or no kind deeds done. It’s only after you have REPENTED by having obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ will you, whether as a kind-hearted and always do-good person or not, be endorsed by God as the consecrated ones to inherit the kingdom of heaven, not before. Savvy?

But it’s too bad that this is normally what a lot of people having failed to understand, even the educated ones. What getting so frightening and detestable is that people are either, getting too ignorant, too foolish or worse, too ‘stiff-necked’ even to bother about what really matters to Yahweh! Because of this, there would be a lot of ‘GAME OVER’ to happen, not “miracles” so sorry to say!

What really matters to Yahweh? [Part 2]

picture1

To do what’s right, don’t you think the second most important step is to….

Obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus?’

According to God’s standard, for anyone to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is as good as obeying any of God’s commandments already. Only the Satan will put plenty of “speed-bumps” and “speed-traps” as in the case of man-made religions and false prophets to derail you from participating in the most ‘Amazing Race of God’. So what does it takes to win this most Amazing Race of God?’ It’s only a very simple equation to work out without the need to put on a “religious skullcap”. However, do not be so amazed while doing your homework because you will, instead, be amusingly disturbed by people with different religious ideologies as in “speed-bumps” and man’s doctrines as in “speed-traps”, relentlessly and rigorously breathing down your neck.

Because of all such kinds of impending religious intricacies that could get you shaken and stirred, you should know now what really matters is to TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh to help you “speed” pass all such dangerous nonsense to win the most ‘Amazing Race of God’ where the reward is priceless. Of course, such commandment to “speed up” in obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ if seen as a “tall order” from Yahweh surely will not go down well with other “religious” detractors who believed and thought otherwise. Because the rewards of man-made religions are the only kind that would bring about either earthly death or eternal death, thus one should all the more “speedily” get one’s act together and do the really right thing by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that is what really matters to Yahweh and to save one’s SOUL by knowing what SOS really means!

Have you ever wondered why there is such a religious edict “racing’ around in the Muslims’ communities forbidding Muslims to read the Bible and become Christians? Do you not know the answer? I guess not. Actually, the answer is as easy as knowing that 1 + 2 = 3. It all only boils down to common sense. One does not need to waste time and money going to religious university or college and study to become a certified “religious scholar” to figure it out. But then again, if they [Muslims] ever had such religious freedom to read the Bible and yet, not become Christians; there’s no telling how one would have interpreted or worse, ‘twisted’ the Word of God. Is there no such possibility?

Now, about the “religious” edict question, the answer, of course, is FEAR! Yes, amigo, it’s a man-made “FEAR” of Muslims racing with the Christians for not being able to make their religion, Islam, as the only “superior” one for all to follow. But too bad, it is too questionable to become one [superior] because of the flaw in creating the wrong kind of “FEAR” in  unbelievers of Islam known to the Muslims as “infidels” that had to be annihilated [killed] according to the teachings found in the book of Surah in the Koran.

Be that as it may, if such man-made “FEAR” had not been instigated by causing the man-made tragedy of 9/11 to happen more than a decade ago to capture everyone’s attention, I believe most people, especially those Bible-studying and God-fearing Christians, would not have had up to this point fully understood that the Islam religion has always been associated with the “FEAR” factor that is according to Man’s standards and not God’s.

Objectively, it is such intimidating “FEAR” that only serves the purpose of burning the one and only divine bridge to God which is Jesus.

To be downright and bluntly truthful with you: if any religion is perpetrating such unsound and ridiculous “FEAR” that is according to Man’s standards in intimidating people to embrace the religion, then TRULY, there is nothing to FEAR at all because it cannot be effective and lasting enough to make people “fearful” of such man-made threats all the time. Look at what happened to Osama Bin Laden? He tried to put “FEAR” in the hearts of “infidels” and focused all his time and resources on killing the Westerners. Instead, he ended up so FEARFUL of being killed by the Western “infidels” that got himself holed up like a prisoner in one’s own prison and yet still finally got annihilated because of the wrong kind of “FEAR” his religion taught him to instigate. No one, whether “infidels” or not, will FEAR such kind of “FEAR” for goodness sake!

In fact, if you ask me what I FEAR the most and in all my life: well, let me tell you nothing but the truth. I will and can only FEAR anyone insomuch as would be so ‘graciously kind’ to me like what Jesus did to the point of sacrificing and having had died for me. Perhaps then, I would, under such circumstances, become so FEARFUL all my life knowing I CANNOT and WILL NOT be able to THANK such person [if any today] enough for such ‘godly’ kindness that will obviously leave me wondering if ever there was any other kind of “human kindness” left that is “good enough” to measure up to the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ that I can, at least, reciprocate according to God’s standard and not Man’s.

But the question is: have you or anyone come across any such flesh and blood “human being” who would be so ‘graciously kind’ as to sacrifice one’s life to SAVE you no matter what? No? I guess not! That’s because the only person who ever could and did, is Jesus – period!

Whether one has any “good intention” to agree with me or not, I believe this is the one and only ‘good enough’ reason for people to easily ‘see’ that is how the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ CAN and WILL work on anyone provided one has a heart and conscience to begin with. If NOT, even such ‘graciously kind’ act of Jesus [God himself] will not and cannot cause a person to feel remorseful and indebted enough to reciprocate the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ that has always been associated with the divine sacrifice and death of Jesus on the cross. And that is something that no man-made religions can ‘copy’ and violate such divine copyright of Yahweh! Do you see now or not see at all?

If one could use the common sense to think without even the need to embrace any of those man-made religions, one already does not have any problem at all to ‘see’ the urgency to really FEAR Yahweh [Exodus 18:21] permanently because of the ‘graciously kind’ act of Jesus that is according to God’s standard and not Man’s. You see, it is by the ‘graciousness’ and ‘mercy’ of Yahweh that will without any shadow of a doubt SAVE you or anyone.

It CANNOT be man-made religions that probably will intimidate you enough to retaliate with negative response because that was exactly what led the Americans hot on Osama Bin Laden’s tail to annihilate him finally on May 1st, 2011 only after a decade of secret intelligence and surveillance! Indeed, the theory of ‘cause and effect’ which hails from Buddhism could not be any truer in this case if cemented with the popular saying, ‘what goes around comes around!’ 

But sadly, it’s a ‘bitter lesson’ that all those Islamist radicals will NEVER learn and an ‘ugly truth’ they will NEVER be brave enough to accept because of man-made religions that got them screwed up badly in their heads!

Believe me, nothing as magnificent as that of the ‘graciously kind’ act of Jesus which reflected the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ had ever been found to have happened in any of those man-made religions that, perhaps, you or anyone knows of, or embracing now. You can make a list of whatever man-made religions and then check out the list one by one with a ‘tick’ to see if any one of them is “good enough” to match up with the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ that brought about the ‘Hope of Salvation’ [2 Timothy 2:7-13] to all humans by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross.

I tell you nothing but the truth. Do not bother wasting your time and effort in making the list. Trust me: you can NEVER find one “good enough” to put the “NIKE” sign on it – period! Moreover, that’s only because the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ is NOT a man-made religion, but it’s the ‘one and only’ divine SOLUTION brought to you by the courtesy of the ‘graciousness’ and ‘mercy’ of Yahweh to SAVE you from eternal death through Jesus. Do you ‘copy’ that? Please, by all means do so if you are good at copying and paste!

So, amigo, if that is the case, you might as well throw all those man-made religions out the window ASAP! And then, come back to ‘papa’ [Yahweh] as exactly as what happened in the parable of the ‘Prodigal Son’ told by Jesus in Luke 15:11-24. It was the best happy ending of a story for anyone to safely ‘copy’ because, at least, the ‘Prodigal Son’ came to his senses and REPENTED. Can you ‘copy’ that? Of course you can, but will you do so according to God’s standard and not Man’s? And that means: obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus!’

Of course, amigo, I can’t deny that there are also some truths in man-made religions. But what if I say those “truths” are only based on the philosophies or principles of life for anyone to become a “Better Man” and that’s about it? Do you believe me then? No? It does not matter whether you believe me or not, but what’s the real problem that I dare say is, man-made religions do not, cannot and will not save one’s soul eternally because the Bible tells me so! Check this out in Isaiah 46:4-13. 

Again, of course, I do believe in some truths of man-made religions but only so sorry to say, these “truths” no matter how religiously true one might have thought and believed, do not actually ADDRESS and much less solve the real issue of humanity that we are all under the curse of ‘sin, death and the devil’If you listen to the words of Isaiah in Isaiah 43:24, “But you have burdened me with your sins and wearied me with your offences”, even Isaiah as a prophet directly sent by God, he was already like so exhausted not knowing what to do to bring the ‘children of Israel’ back on the correct path to God that true Christians are doing the same today. So, what makes you think man-made religions not even endorsed or authorized by God can do better than God’s plan delivered by Jesus to save people today from sin, death and the devil ?

Actually, any Tom, Dick or Harry can become a “Better Man” even without the need to go one big round to embrace any man-made religions to be told if one can do this or cannot do that. All one ever needed was a heart and conscience. However, for one to have a heart and conscience to become “righteous” and “holy” is a thing of the past and pretty hard to come by these days because of too many “humans” preferring to become either as “robots” or as “dead men walking” [zombies] on earth to know what really matters to Yahweh and what SOS really means!

Really, if you or anyone could prove Romans 3:23 is a blatant lie by signing a SD [statutory declaration] that you NEVER ever had committed sin, will NEVER ever die, and NEVER ever once in your life had been a ‘devil-in-disguise’ to do or say anything as a hypocrite would, then honestly, you do not even deserve a pat on your back. Do you know why?

Because firstly, if that is the case, you would have saved God a whole lot of trouble to come down from heaven to suffer at the hands of humans and then die for everyone simply because humans do not ever see wake up to see the sinful nature of themselves when looking in the mirror. Do you?

And secondly, it would be rather a ‘blessing-in-disguise’ for me even to be seen as the “bad guy” if that is what it takes to save your soul. That’s because God had declared that if a prophet [messenger] does not warn a person of one’s sins and the urgency to REPENT and walk in righteousness again, then, if that person dies, the blood of the person will be on the hand of the prophet. But if the prophet had obeyed God’s commandment to warn the person and the person does not bother to ‘come clean’ and REPENT of one’s unrighteousness, then, the prophet shall be spared the blame. Check this out in Ezekiel 3:18-21 and Ezekiel 18:4.

That is why, in Christianity, there is NO such necessity to implement mandatory “religious laws” to force people to obey and if not, to fine and jail any Christians for flouting such laws. According to God’s standard, the heart and conscience will suffice to act as the true guide for the Christians to obey His commandments.

Thirdly, if you believe and have “faith” that man-made religions and not Jesus, can easily resolve such deadly curse of humanity where no one is free from, you would have had already earned yourself the greatest “power” and “authority” than Jesus that, so much so, you have no fear in telling off any of Yahweh’s messengers [Christians] to go fly kites and not to bother you anymore with such “nonsense” about obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ as though you needed Jesus so badly to save you from drowning when you are such a “champion” in swimming that you will NEVER ever get drown or that you NEVER ever have gone swimming or rather sinning in your life, thus Jesus had no chance of saving you from drowning in your sins since you are “greater” than Him now. Is that not right, amigo?

Of course, you are right, amigo, if you would rather be more concerned about “saving face” than saving your SOUL from eternal damnation by not admitting that Romans 3:23 applies to you and everyone. It’s understandable too that amigo will somehow protest this is not the nicest thing for this writer and as a Christian to say in public, right? Yes, you are absolutely right! Is it not so stupid and unnecessary of this writer to be so concern about people’s SOULS to the point of getting despised, hated and to be avoided for not having anything “nice” but only truths to say that will “piss” people off as though it’s one’s favorite pass time hobby?

For your information, that is exactly what happened to Jesus too. He suffered and died at the hands of humans for not having something “nice” but only ugly truths to say. But if Jesus had no qualms then in telling off those religious hypocrites with the six woes recorded in Luke but Matthew recorded seven woes instead; then, don’t you think His disciples now known as Christians should have no qualms in doing the same too even if one may end up as a martyr like Him? Now, just because of not having something “nice’ but only ugly truth to say, a bunch of religious hypocrites plotted to kill Jesus. Can you imagine that? I guess not!

Now, if those religious hypocrites were smart enough and had not plotted to kill Jesus and if Jesus did not die as a martyr and resurrected, there would not have existed the need to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that in which case means: if Jesus is no longer a threat to man-made religions, then the Satan would have won the battle to counter attack God’s will and plan on earth to keep humans from reconciling with Him again, right or not?

But the Satan, obviously, had made the biggest mistake in rallying behind those religious hypocrites to kill Jesus. Because Jesus died and resurrected that in which case means: if He had conquered DEATH, He had made it possible for humans too, by only obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that is according to God’s standard. Is that not right? And because of such a change of event having taken place that caught the Satan off guard, the Satan had no choice but to get around and act quickly to make sure humans still face the ETERNAL DEATH – even if it’s only fighting over a simple matter with what name one can or cannot use to refer as God. Can you imagine that? I guess not!

You see, amigo, man-made religions can only go “so far” and be “so good” as to “teach” people to live a “principled and disciplined” life on earth where saying is one thing and doing is quite another. It is, therefore, not as holy and perfect as what the ‘graciousness’ and ‘mercy’ of Yahweh are like, simply because it has the divine power to SAVE one’s SOUL eternally when everything else can’t! It’s as plain and simple as that! So that only means, whether man-made religions can make one become a “Better Man” or not is already so questionable that it leaves much to be desired.

On the contrary, one can safely say that the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ actually goes BEYOND all such earthly spectrum of religious “teachings” be it earthly things or heavenly things. So, the only one best way to describe it in simple language is: ONLY by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ will one finally come to God’s ‘one-stop center’ to have the divine power to “kill” two birds with one stone so much so that according to God’s standard, man-made religions CAN’T whether it “hurts” one’s feelings or not! Got my drift? I guess not!

So, little did they know? The one serious wrong move that they [Muslims] made in fighting their “Holy Jihad” was by instigating the wrong kind of “FEAR” on others by killing all “infidels” in the world as instructed by the Koran. Come on, common sense alone will tell you how could such silly teaching in killing “infidels”or in religiously intimidating others with whatever enactment laws, will make others think such religion is “superior?”

Because of that, it has now backfired on them and their religion instead! Now, everyone can see clearly that the religion either strikes “FEAR” in the hearts and minds of “infidels” to propel “speedy” submission to their version of an “almighty God” that is Allah or that; what is even clearer than crystal for anyone to see is those religious radicals who, as “speedsters” themselves, being overtly “true” to Islam have always been living in real FEAR themselves of being “speedily” proselytized by others especially Christians – if they [religious radicals] failed to put up “speed-limits” such as the “apostasy” act among others to prevent any innocent Muslims from being proselytized.

If their religion, Islam, is “true” and sufficiently as well as efficiently proven to be “divinely” endorsed by the one true Almighty God, it should not have any problems to be substantiated with divine scriptures from the Koran convincingly enough for people to believe and be converted to Islam, but too bad, there is none! Instead, what’s worse is when their extremist actions reflected otherwise.

So, it’s not surprising that most of what one can read in the Koran is much like ‘copied’ from here and there of others and then it’s all only about doing a “good job” in turnaround of things to make it sound and look “superior” than others. That is the reason why they could only resort to employing the “speedy” tactic: that is, putting “FEAR” in the hearts of “infidels” as substantiated in the book of Surah, and not by ‘graciousness’ where there’s no divine scriptures in the Koran to support it, let alone can they lead by such example?

If ever there were full of “love” and “compassion” in the religion, there is no reason whatsoever for them to use “FEAR” as a means to intimidate people in embracing the religion in the first place, is there? Any right thinking person would have been easily pissed and not be intimidated by such illogical and ridiculous teachings. Am I not right to say so? What’s more, it’s already too late for them to turn back time even by using “love and compassion” or “reconciliation” or “amazing grace” now to promote their religion because doing so would be violating the divine ‘copyrights’ of Yahweh and insulting Christianity as these are the well-known trademarks of the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ all along even before the Prophet Muhammad was born and founded Islam only at the age of 40!

Even any average Joe can understand now the reason Muslims are not allowed to touch, let alone read the Holy Bible is no other than the FEAR of the ‘Good News’ of Jesus Christ always having the ‘endless possibilities’ in touching the heart and conscience of anyone, let alone any innocent Muslims. But the biggest and real FEAR among the religious bigots is when any innocent Muslims could become “smart” enough to figure out who the one true Almighty God [Yahweh] is if they have been given the right of freedom to read the Bible or attend church services.

So, to prevent such ‘endless possibilities’ to happen, it would have been “wiser” and “smarter” for the religious radicals to come out with such man-made religious edict such as the “speed-limit” [apostasy act] of religious freedom to stop any innocent Muslims from reading the Holy Bible and thus, not having any chances to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which is the only ‘Hope of Salvation’ for all mankind.

As such, if ever there happened to have any innocent Muslims who became sensible enough to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, there is no way one can do so because of the “apostasy” act which is the “speed-limit” that would allow plenty of time for the religious bigots to catch up and stop any Muslims from becoming a Christian as the top priority. So you can imagine there is so much of FEAR reigning inside and outside of any innocent Muslims to have even the right of freedom to choose and to decide where their destiny should bring them. Can you not imagine? I guess so!

If ever anyone, as a human being, given the human rights at birth by the Creator of the heaven and earth to think, reason and have unrestricted freedom of choice to study or even do research on anything be it religion or God so that one may know and understand the spiritual implication behind any of God’s commandments for humans to follow and obey, then, it is absolutely no business of anyone regardless of race or status to prevent or to stop others from doing so with any of those ridiculous man-made “religious laws” especially Islam that are not even according to God’s standard, but Man’s.

No one, whether as Muslim or not, can thump on one’s chest and guarantee with one’s blood that any religion whether Islam or not is the only “superior” religion for everyone to follow and embrace. Can you?  But the sad truth is: all Muslims have been religiously ‘programmed’ to defend Islam even if it is not what it claimed to be on many aspects.

One of the most common ones is the ‘conflict of interest’ where, at the outset, other people of whatever race or religion, can convert to Islam and become Muslims, but not the other way around for Muslims to choose others. Can anyone consider such religious edict as according to God’s standard? I don’t think so! Besides, do you not think this is the most ridiculous thing ever to have happened in the history of mankind by forfeiting one’s right to choose one’s path?

As such, how could it [Islam] be substantiated as “divinely” endorsed by the one and only true Almighty God who would NEVER deny the right and freedom of anyone and everyone to question anything or anyone [including royalties] under the Sun, even Him [God] to choose one’s path? With the recent development of a religious “conflict” getting even more ridiculous and laughable is the news of people from other faith not even allowed to use the name, “Allah” to refer as God. As such, it is unthinkable how anyone would ever want to relate to such religion that will cause people to go backwards in every aspects.

Even just for the sake of argument without really arguing, do Muslims only have the “copyright” to own the name, “Allah” which is only just a name in Arabic for God? Do the Muslims today even have the basic knowledge that Arab Christians have used the word even long before the Prophet Muhammad founded the Islam religion? Why then make such a big deal out of it and for whose sake? Is it really for Allah’s sake or more like politically motivated in the name of Allah by mixing religion with politics which is by far the most ridiculous thing to have ever happened on planet earth?

So any average Joe can easily tell how “superior” such religion is when it stops at nothing in unreasonably controlling, oppressing, and worse, so theocratic as to take the ‘extremist’ approach in encroaching on the fundamental human rights of people even in choosing what name to use in reference as God. Is it a crime and a sin then, to use the Arabic word, “Allah” to refer as God? If so, who said so? Is it the Koran? Where in the Koran said so then?

Honestly, if you ask me, it would NEVER have occurred to me as such a big deal in “fighting” for the “right” to use the word, “Allah” that does not prove to mean anything seriously divine as that of the Hebrew word, Yahweh. The word, “Allah” is but only just another word to refer as God in another language only. Really, it would have been so easy for me to flee from “fighting” for the “right” to use that name even without thinking about it.

On top of that, the fact that the Prophet Muhammad who founded Islam did not have the divine power to forgive the sins of mankind as he, only a human being also badly needed forgiveness himself from above as does every human being, is already a good enough reason for anyone not to have anything to do with him and his religion. By right, if he knew where he stood according to God’s standard in Romans 3:23, should he not have taken it as the 1st priority to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ himself instead of having invented another religion by ‘copying’ others such as Judaism in particular?

Perhaps, that only goes to prove one thing: that Jesus who prophesied ‘false prophets’ will arise to further wreak havoc on earth even after He had already proclaimed in His divine mission for Yahweh that, “It is finished”, is indeed true with what one can see happening now.

When the Prophet Muhammad committed adultery for having married 15 wives, this alone, is a serious sin according to God’s laws [Ten Commandments] and Man’s laws. Don’t you think then it is so clear enough that he already had lost the credibility to be even seen as a “man-of-God”, thus cannot be considered as a “prophet” and having the “authority” to teach people about morals to begin with?

Did you not know that even God punished King David for having committed adultery? Read 2 Samuel 12 for proof. There are plenty of verses in the Bible to substantiate that it’s a sin to commit adultery like in Exodus 20: 14; Leviticus 18:20; Leviticus 20:10; Proverbs 5:1; Proverbs 6:32; Jeremiah 3:6; Jeremiah 3:9; just to cite a few.

Furthermore, he would have been easily seen as also broken the marital laws according to Man’s standards because it is only fitting for every man to have one wife only, the basic foundation to build a happy family that is also evidently substantiated in the Bible as obeying one of the commandments of God in the Old Testament and from the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament.

So the question is: why is it that other “innocent” Muslims are keeping dead quiet about what some other religious critics making such unwarranted claims that Isaiah 29:11 as referring to the Prophet Muhammad and not Jesus? It’s interesting: how is it possible that an Arab “prophet” and a Gentile could have “suddenly” taken the place of Jesus, a Hebrew prophesied as the Messiah to save mankind from the curse of sin, death and devil? Well, in that case, I believe anyone having married only one wife and not committed adultery to sin against God could have made a better prophet than him then, right or not?

What’s even more amusing to know is that it was Jesus who quoted the same thing in Matthew 15:7-9 exactly what Isaiah said in Isaiah 29:13 that actually prophesied about Jesus and not the Prophet Muhammad that some Muslims critics have laid claims on. Can you or any Muslims find any exact quotes in the Koran that the Prophet Muhammad having ever said the same thing as what the prophet Isaiah had said in the Bible? I don’t think so!

What most people do not realize is that there will be ‘endless possibilities’ for not even one of the innocent Muslims to be capable of feeling remorseful of one’s sins if every one of them would continue to be so ‘radically influenced’ enough by the religion to think they are born of the “flesh and blood” and yet “do not” need to have a heart and conscience to reciprocate the ‘Amazing Grace of Yahweh to REPENT and ‘come clean’ so that one can become SAVED from ‘sin, death and the devil’ by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’.

Perhaps, this is the worst kept secret that the religion Islam does not want its followers to know. What could not be any worse is that people are dumb enough not to have found out such ugly truth or perhaps are keeping “mum” about it even if they do know for FEAR of reprisal. Check out Proverbs 1:7 and Matthew 10:28.

However, it is still not too late for any innocent Muslims to see and to do something about it before it really is too late! But I guess it really is too late already to turn back – for a lot of them even dare not touch the Bible, let alone reading it!

Although Jesus’ name appeared in the Koran many times, he is only treated as a “small fry” and, of course, still being “respected” by all Muslims as like any other prophets mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible like Abraham and Moses as an example. But the Prophet Muhammad had not ever been mentioned anywhere in the Bible. The funny thing is: why did the Koran fail specifically to portray Jesus as the Son of God or “Allah” in Arabic, who died and resurrected, thus rightfully qualified as the Savior of the world but which [the Koran] exactly contradicted what the Holy Bible portrayed about Him?

If you study the Koran where there are many similarities with Judaism still following and practicing the Mosaic laws and traditions and what the Prophet Muhammad have ‘copied’ from day one and all the Muslims doing almost the same things today, you would then easily spot the Koran’s radical contradiction of Jesus’ death and resurrection compared to what the Holy Bible in the New Testament described about Him [Jesus] who He really was and still is.

Obviously, this is rather odd and strange, is it not? Why ‘copy’ a little and not all? One might as well don’t ‘copy’ at all and create one’s own originality like the Buddhism religion, right or not? And then, there is absolutely NO WORRY of any kind of disputes over who violates whose copyrights for committing plagiarism.

So it looks like there’s a man-made ‘conspiracy theory’ here to crack. But actually, there is no such nonsense. It’s because of the Koran that caused such nonsense to pop out that gave people no choice but to counter-check with the Bible which is the Word of God. Actually, only by using one’s common sense, one can easily sort everything out already but the trouble is: people do not seem to be impressed or worse, rather pissed with such a common yet noble advice about using one’s head to be sensible and not to be sensitive.

True and False Prophets

Firstly: if one would seriously get down to studying the Holy Bible, it is as easy as ABC to notice that one of the most important aspects that one should know is the history of God’s prophets like who they were and what God had commanded them to do. You do not hear of such thing in man-made religions, or worse as in Islam to find any other prophets existing before the Prophet Muhammad to prophesy about him in the Koran sent by “Allah” to save the world from sin, death and the devil, do you? Instead, he only instructed the Muslims to kill all the Jews, Christians and “infidels” in the book of Surah which literally speaks nothing but volumes of violence and crimes against humanity.

But in the Bible, any of God’s prophets who prophesied about a Messiah actually were accurately fulfilled because of prominent prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah. The reason these two well-known prophets played such big role in God’s will and plan on earth is because Yahweh chose them to make the most important prophecy of all time about the coming of a Messiah that, we all know or should we not, had been accurately fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth and graciously sent by Yahweh to atone for the sins of mankind.

So it became clear that such scriptural prophecy if having been divinely fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth as what Isaiah and Jeremiah among others, had prophesied in the Old Testament; then, why still question such accuracy of the prophets as though it came from “false prophets?” There is, however, no prophecy whatsoever found in the Old Testament of anything at all as in ZERO that “prophesied” about the Prophet Muhammad even as the “last prophet” after Jesus, let alone as a “prophet” of Yahweh.

Some of the critics and even Muslim scholars and detractors claimed that Isaiah 29:11 “actually” indicated about the Prophet Muhammad in this link, “Muhammad in the Bible” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyoTOSZ7rzQ. But as what, if may ask – a Messiah? Is that so? If it is, then, that is absolutely rubbish and not true in whatever sense or logic. No doubt, the prophet Isaiah was all the while talking about a Messiah, but it’s someone who should come from the house of David to save the world from sin, death and the devil and that was obviously pointing to Jesus  of Nazareth that we know of today – not the Prophet Muhammad!

How could the Prophet Muhammad, an Arab and as a Gentile, suddenly became a “Hebrew” to come from the house of David who was also one of the descendants of the Hebrews to “deliver” the ‘children of Israel’ [Israelites] in Jerusalem from sins? Are you kidding me? Please don’t make me roll on the floor laughing for goodness sake!

Furthermore, what Isaiah pointed out in Isaiah 6:8, whether one is reading the KJV version or not, is that Yahweh [God] was punishing Jerusalem because the people were still sinful and unrepentant – NOT because of following “false prophets” as the reason to reject Him [Yahweh]. Only false prophets do not warn people of the consequence of sins. So, how could it have been possible that Yahweh [God] sent “false prophets” such as Isaiah or Jeremiah who strenuously warned His people [Israelites] to REPENT from their sinfulness? Does what those Muslims critics claimed make sense? Absolutely not!

If the critics claimed Isaiah 6:8 was referring to the Prophet Muhammad as “chosen” by Yahweh to warn His people, the ‘children of Israel’, from sinning, then that is nothing but the most preposterous thing to say and that’s blasphemy! Have the Muslims forgotten that it was the Prophet Muhammad himself who instructed Muslims to kill all Jews and Christians because they are “infidels” according to the book of Surah in the Koran. So, which is which – to kill or to save? Are they not seriously confused themselves? Certainly, something is definitely wrong with their “wisdom” in reading the Bible to have come out with such pervert interpretations in trying to confuse the unsuspecting public.

Thus, nothing in the Book of Isaiah or anywhere in the Holy Bible could have substantiated any claims that the Prophet Muhammad [Arab] had ever gotten any “divine” purpose to fulfill for the God of the Hebrews who sent Jesus – also a Hebrew!  That is the reason why NOTHING had ever been said, prophesied or even in the least implicated about him [the Prophet Muhammad] in the Old and New Testament no matter what those critics claimed or continue making such bizarre and foolish claims.

Based on historical fact, one should know very well that the Prophet Muhammad who founded Islam in 610 AD at the age of 40, was not born yet even long after the apostles had completed their task that Jesus commissioned them in the first century [33 AD] to spread the ‘Good News’ of His death and resurrection.

To simply “squeeze” in the Prophet Muhammad, an Arab, as playing a “big role” in God’s will and plan on earth after Jesus had finished doing all the work, is nothing but speaking blasphemy and is 101% out the question. That’s because the biggest question is: what is there to fulfill anymore when Jesus had already completed the divine ‘mission’ in fulfilling God’s will and plan on earth? All the prophesies about the coming of the Messiah by prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah who existed a thousand years before Jesus came into existence only systemically had proven that the death and resurrection of Jesus as the ‘Hope of Salvation’ to all by having Jesus explicitly said, “IT IS FINISHED!” in John 19:30.

Come on amigo, common sense alone will tell you that Yahweh could not have been so “imbecile” as to send another non-Hebrew prophet, the Prophet Muhammad after Jesus, to contradict and undermine His will and plan, could He? And common sense will tell you that the “archangel Gabriel” having been claimed in the Koran to have “appeared” to a non-Hebrew “prophet” is without doubt defying logic and thus, immensely questionable!

Don’t forget, amigo, the Bible had mentioned that the Satan was once an archangel of God but only a fallen one. So it does not come as a surprise that he too, had the power to disguise himself as an “angel” of God or even as “Gabriel” to fool the self-proclaimed Prophet Muhammad. If that is the case, then, have you not been assiduously fooled by the Satan also doubling as “God” himself? Check this out at 2 Corinthians 11:14 that said, “the Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light” and “he leads the world astray” in Revelation 12:9.

Anyone who “professed” to embrace the Islam religion that got absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do or anything at all similar with the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which dwells on the true divine kindness and purpose of God’s will and plan on earth to offer ‘Hope of Salvation’ for all, should not arbitrarily abuse any scriptures of the Bible which is the Word of God, to wrongfully and purportedly interpret any of their ‘pervert’ and ‘pernicious’ claims, whether it’s about the Prophet Muhammad or not as having been “rightfully substantiated” by the Bible when it is not.

So, amigo, beware and be seriously forewarned of such real ‘false prophets’ out there now! Yahweh had already given the warning to take stern action on anyone who demeans and desecrate the Word of God in Revelation 22:18-19.

If people, whether as critics or religious scholars or not, do not put a full stop to carrying such unrealistic and unethical act of sabotage either to discredit, denounce or when necessary take ‘piggyback’ ride on the truth of the Word of God, the Bible whether it’s about the God’s prophets or the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to make “good” on one’s religion especially Islam; then, don’t be surprised that in no time, such irresponsible critics or religiously screwed up people may even make unwarranted claims that the Bible is the “copycat” of the Koran and not the other way around.

Don’t you know that man-made religions could so easily make people ‘lose’ their minds as in getting screwed up that Jesus had warned long time ago that such ‘faithless and perverse generation’ of people would do whatever it takes to protect the so-called sanctity of one’s religion especially Islam, even if it means having to destroy others with wrongful interpretations to cause confusion among the Christians and worse, the public?

Secondly: all God’s prophets and if any one of them is not fake or false, came from the descendants of the Hebrews all along. Jesus being exalted as the ‘Prophet of the prophets’ by Yahweh came from the line of King David, also one of the descendants of the Hebrews. Anything having to do with God’s prophets then had to come from the chosen people of God the Israelites who were the Hebrews and none others. As such, no one, even from the Israelites could simply become a “prophet” without the blessings and divine authority of Yahweh as indicated in Deuteronomy 18:14-22.

So, the question is: was the self-proclaimed Prophet Muhammad an “Israelite” and got the “blessings” and divine “authority” from Yahweh? No, I don’t think so! He was an Arab 100% for goodness sake! So, amigo, never try to mix oil with water because it will SEPARATE no matter what. It is entirely two different thing altogether – just like the Arabs and Jews today! Can they mix together? I don’t think so!

Can anyone answer only 3 questions below with scriptures from the Bible to substantiate if ever the Prophet Muhammad qualified as the so-called last prophet sent by Yahweh?

  1. Where in the Bible indicated that the Prophet Muhammad, an Arab “suddenly” became an Israelite to come from the house of David who was one of the descendants of the Hebrews? None!
  2. If the Prophet Muhammad committed adultery which is a serious sin against God, could he still have qualified to carry out the “divine” task of God to tell people not to sin? If it was so, where in the Bible said so? None!
  3. What proof is there that Yahweh had chosen an Arab [Gentile] as a “prophet” to carry on the task of bringing people back to be reconciled with Him when he did the opposite [killing] in the book of Surah? None!

The Bible only indicated in the Book of Acts that such task had already been passed on to the apostles by Jesus and then the Christians at Antioch and Christians now. So how could Yahweh have made such a silly “blunder” to contradict oneself by “squeezing” in the Prophet Muhammad out of the blue?

Thirdly: all prophets as long as they existed as humans in flesh and blood, had already died including the so-called Prophet Muhammad. Of course, Jesus also died but what made Him different from others is that He rose from the dead on the third day but nothing of such mighty miracle happened to the Prophet Muhammad! Did it? I don’t think so! And that only meant Jesus was the ‘one and only one’ who had divinely fulfilled exactly the prophecies of the Messiah prophesied by prominent prophets such as Isaiah and Jeremiah umpteen years before the real event taking place. Do not forget too. There are plenty of scriptures such as the one popularly and often quoted in John 8:58“Before Abraham was, I am” is already good enough to offer amble proof that Jesus is God coming in the flesh to atone for the sins of the humankind.

………to be continued.

What really matters to Yahweh?

picture1

Does anyone really know what really matters to Yahweh? What does SOS [Save Our Souls] really means to you?

If ever anyone got the heart and conscience of a ‘real human being’ who can contemplate to live according to God’s standard, at least, for once in one’s lifetime and for a change, then, don’t you think it’s crucial to ask such simple questions as above? Equally important is, let it be known that in knowing what the answers are to the questions, it would have an even far-reaching implication than not knowing. So if that is the case, is it better to know or not to know? Perhaps, one might prefer to keep quiet and make no comments about it just to keep a “good” reputation. Oh really? But in this case, don’t you know you say the worst when you say nothing at all? That’s because the worst is yet to come for anyone and everyone who does not know what really matters to Yahweh and more importantly, what SOS really means.

Well, one thing that is for sure though is that, it’s basically down to everyone’s choice to know or not to know. However, it’s a vital choice that no one should in the least ignore in choosing to find out than just simply brush it aside without hesitation that in which case is a resemblance of those religious bigots who could be easily mistaken as the modern “Pharisees” or “Sadducees” somewhat acting impressively as “men-of-God” on the outside and “supposedly” know everything already….or so it seemed!

If, as a result of anyone having the good sense to find out what really matters to Yahweh as declared by Himself in Isaiah 45:22 is still prevalent today, Yahweh would have been so proud of the person, even if it’s only one [Jeremiah 5:1], to have realized the significance in reconciling with Him. Needless to say, that is exactly what really matters to Him because that’s what SOS really means! But is that happening? I guess not!

Now, what could not be any worse is that if something as significant as that of SOS is not happening, perhaps then, the best bet is that one will walk away from reading this post. And by all means please do so if one does not really “feel good” about knowing what really matters to Yahweh, let alone about what SOS really means. Be forewarned then. Please do not continue reading to continue taking the “heat” from this article that will really “hurt” the feelings of anyone because of an ugly truth about to be unleashed as I go along in disseminating such cardinal information with regards to man-made religions.

Therefore, as a reminder again, please DO NOT continue reading this post if it is offensive [Jeremiah 6:10] and could cause you to ‘lose’ your mind and thus, not ‘act responsibly’ by calling for stern actions to be taken and indulging in such nonsense that makes one “feel good”. Well, so much for all such rhetoric of “tolerance” and “moderation” these days that still keep locking people up in jail for speaking out under the banner of freedom of speech and expression.

What’s even worse is when such undemocratic process is taking place in places that so-called professed to uphold democracy and protect the human rights of everyone only to turn around and do otherwise!

Really, how anyone as a ‘real human being’ could tolerate such hypocrisy is totally unimaginable! Even Jesus himself could not stand such hypocrisy and sort of “lashed” it out at the hypocrites [Matthew 22:18] especially the religious ones with the infamous six woes recorded in Luke 11:37- 54, but seven in Matthew 23:1-37.

As usual, you know better than I do that humans are always preoccupied with earthly things, you know, like money and power? Perhaps, once in a while, the ever inevitable subject of man-made religion and its teachings whether deviant or not but nonetheless still cause divisions and disunity will rear its ugly head. The only worse thing to happen is that “religion” will become the ‘devil-in-disguise’ to make things look well and dandy on the outside while the ‘sinful nature’ [human nature] still raging endlessly inside of those who actually HUNGER for power and glory and stop at nothing to satisfy such GREED [Jeremiah 6:13-15]. Can you imagine if there’s no such HUNGER? I guess not!

Without doubt, one knows all the important earthly things are normally and usually what really matters to most humans today, than to have even a wee bit ‘sense of direction’ for anyone and everyone to be concerned with heavenly things that will last – you know, like eternal life by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus?’ Because people have become like wax that is cold as ice, hence, it’s not surprising at all that one does not even bother to find out what really matters to Yahweh, let alone do something about the urgency of SOS! Am I not right to say so? I guess so!

Well, one thing I know for sure is that according to Man’s standards, anyone and even I, will definitely get all the thumbs down for not saying the “nicest” things to anyone’s liking but that’s really no big deal for someone like me who only cares about speaking nothing but the truth by separating the right from the wrong! Nevertheless, I’d rather stick with telling the truth that is according to God’s standard even though the truth will ALWAYS hurt, but so are lies and hypocrisies anyway! Don’t you think so?

But little did we know? The fact is, the more anyone or everyone wants to avoid knowing and ignore addressing issues such as what really matters to Yahweh and what SOS really means, the more chances that all will lose everything, both earthly things and heavenly things in the end! [Luke 9:25] And this is one of the worst of all such ‘endless possibilities’ happening in the world today whether one would deny it or not and much less “don’t think so” or not!

In other words, every one of us in this lifetime will face the grave danger of losing ‘something’ of even greater value than we could ever have imagined and that, of course, is our SOULS! [Galatians 6:7-8] Ever heard of SOS? What does it really means to you? Are you not even saving your own SOUL for goodness sake? Unless you don’t think you have a soul to bother about what SOS means, you will, of course, not bother about what I’m saying now, will you? Whether one would bother about what really matters to Yahweh and one’s own soul or not, everyone knows so well that nothing in this world will last – including, so sorry to say, all the laughs, smiles and not forgetting those “good” but stale memories of the past!

And even then, the worst thing that no one can ever bypass is everyone having to pay the price of sin, death and the devil’ no matter what’s the excuse or explanation [Jeremiah 8:6].  But now, right before our eyes is the only ‘Hope of Salvation’ [2 Timothy 2:10; Ephesians 1:13] in Jesus who has the divine power, today, tomorrow and forever to reverse the curse of mankind. No money, power, laughter – be it natural or artificial, smiles, and much less man-made religions can do so! “So, eat your heart out…amigo!”

Basically, do you know what really matters to Yahweh? No? I guess not! Let me tell you nothing but the truth. Well, Yahweh is, actually, more concerned than you about where your SOUL would be heading and finally resting when after all the fun and sun you have enjoyed on earth are over! Then, it shall be the beginning of the end for everyone, either to inherit eternal life or eternal death! Take your pick. You CANNOT enjoy “heaven-on-earth” [fun and sun] and expect to escape the ‘second death’ [hell] in eternity for not even knowing what SOS, your SOUL in particular, really means to you, let alone what really matters to Yahweh. Can you?

As such, the most painful and delusional question is: how many people today even though each one blessed with a “beautiful mind” to think, reason and to choose to do what’s right, would be so bothered with such an urgent issue to address that is what really matters to Yahweh and for you to know what SOS really means? One could not be more right to know what is the right thing to do than not to do what’s right, right?

And to do what’s right, don’t you think the first most important step is….

To TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh – not man-made religions?

Since the beginning of human civilization, no humans who ever existed and even more so, the existing ones on earth today will ever get the chance to escape from choosing whether to obey or not to obey any of God’s commandments. To be able to carry out such simple yet significant task, it certainly would take one to TRUST and having a lot of FAITH in Yahweh to make it happen. Would it not? Because of such reasoning, it evidently makes ignorance as what Isaiah said in Isaiah 45:20 none optional and pretty much 101% unacceptable too.

We all know or do we not, that during the biblical era of Moses, it was the Ten Commandments that supposedly would have kept the ‘the children of Israel’, the chosen people of Yahweh from sinning until such time the prophecy of the coming of the Messiah that we all should know by now or should we not, had become what is now known as the New Covenant of God [New Testament] after having been fulfilled by none others but Jesus, the Son of God with His precious blood to make everything sparkling ‘NEW’ again for the human race.

As a result, and as always the case with humans, it depends on whether anyone and everyone would be banking on such euphoria or not to make good on Yahweh’s promise of eternal life by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ and be saved from ‘sin, death and the devil’ once and for all. But the question is: are we banking on the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ to live happily ever after, you know, like putting back the ‘everlasting’ smile on everybody’s face only by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’? I guess not!

Starting from the first century until today, if anyone, or everyone knew or at least heard about Jesus, it should have been pretty clear to everyone already that what is now known as the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ was that only Jesus himself had been given the divine authority and power by God to have 11 of His disciples entrusted with the massive task to carry out the ‘Great Commission’ that He rolled out in Matthew 28:16-20 which is about delivering the ‘Hope of Salvation’ to all mankind to become saved from ‘sin, death, and the devil’. Don’t you think so or at least make sense?

As such, it should serve as a clarion call to all true followers of Jesus today that Christians should not lose sight of such a significant task to SAVE humanity. Apostle Paul always reminded Christians to carry on the good work of bringing lost souls to Christ at all cost and make ‘no excuse’ about it. And neither should any true Christians be so fearful of suffering whatever backlashes from whatever evil forces because of not letting the cause of Christ to suffer. If any Christians is not prepared and ready to die for the cause of Christ by SAVING others according to God’s standard, then it would have been better off that one did not become a Christian in the first place. Check out what the apostle Paul wrote to the church in Corinth in 1 Corinthians 3:1-21.

By right, the human race should STILL be dancing “Gangnam Style” or should we not, with great joy in spreading such glad tidings that the TRUST and FAITH Jesus put on the apostles had successfully paid off. But the problem is: do you see anyone and everyone really rejoicing as a “Gentleman” should with such ‘Good News’ of Jesus today? I guess not!

The ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is NOT about how humans can become “righteous” and “holy” in the sight of God by merely practicing those “religious laws” and “rituals” as mandatory as what man-made religions such as Islam among others, is teaching today. You see, it is about learning to TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh in one’s relationship with Him that is ONLY possible by having obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ and that, of course, is what really matters to Yahweh so that one knows what SOS really means as well.

That is why, no one being a sinner oneself as indicated in Romans 3:23 should enforce any of those somewhat “religious laws” and “rituals” as mandatory and then, ridiculously force them down on people’s throats to become “righteous” and “holy”. No matter what “good intention” behind in making such practices as mandatory, it will still become as inconsequential as like anyone not having practiced them – so what’s the point?

In fact, in doing so, this shall be seen as a direct contradiction of God’s laws written inside the hearts of everyone that would be based on letting our CONSCIENCE as our true guide to STOP sinning and that’s ONLY if one can do so according to God’s standard and not Man’s. If not, even chopping peoples’ hands and legs off with “hudud laws” and whatnot still WILL NOT stop people from sinning – secretly though, or perhaps with conspiracy to cover up when necessary if the religious radicals themselves are sinning! Do you ‘copy’ that?

So amigo, for all you know, such extreme push as in the case of those conventional man-made religions especially Islam for the sake of “religious expediency” is nothing but impossible even to please God, let alone be what really matters to Yahweh!

Why is it so?

  1. It has become the biggest question now for you to answer. Are you 101% sure you are ‘correctly’ paying allegiance and ‘worshipping’ the one true Almighty God? If not, then check this out in Isaiah 42:8.
  2. The problem is: we all are separated from God because of our sinful nature that can NEVER be subdued and much less can anyone’s sins be washed away by any man-made religions that are according to Man’s standards. Isaiah 42:24
  3. It’s the biggest problem of all time. As long as we are born of the flesh and blood [sinful nature] and not willing to TRANSFORM ourselves to be ‘born again’ with water and the Holy Spirit through baptism by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ which is according to God’s standard, NO ONE is getting anywhere near to redemption, let alone reconciliation with Yahweh to become “righteous” and “holy!” Isaiah 43:9-13.

Now, just because of such reasoning, people whether religious detractors or not, will sort of automatically interpret it as those of the extremists only claiming one’s religion as being more superior than others. Now, what if the Christians believe and say that the one true Almighty God of the Bible himself claims there is no other gods but He only, can you then say the Christians of this one true Almighty God are extremists just because they believe He is really the only one true Almighty God and for having proven as such by sending His Son, Jesus to die for our sins? What have man-made religions proven to substantiate it as proof from the one true Almighty God?

Even if Christians are seen as “extremists” in this case because of being associated with the one and only true Almighty God, they are the legitimate ones, not the screwed up ones for goodness sake! And by the way, all true Christians have never been taught by the Word of God that their way to God is more superior than others. They only teach that it is the only correct way to God by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ and Christians do not have the bad habit of forcing it down somebody’s throat for that matter.

On top of that, this must have gotten anyone and everyone wondering and asking the same old question why man-made religions are not at all possible to come anywhere near to addressing the issues of ‘sin, death and the devil’  according to God’s standard, right? Well, to cut the long story short; during the biblical time, the ‘children of Israel’ offered ‘burnt sacrifice’ of animals to ask Yahweh for forgiveness of their sins with the shedding of animal’s blood on the altar. This has changed! The reason for Yahweh to change with the modern times long time ago is because such kind of ‘burnt sacrifice’ to God by using animals’ blood to purify oneself of sins is no longer practical enough to stand the test of time.

You see, the problem of humans sinning from the beginning has NEVER been God’s fault but it’s due to humans’ disobedience and their unrepentant hearts. Hence, such change was inevitable simply because humans NEVER stop sinning – even though “religiously” until today! Can you imagine then, the incredible amount of animals required to be slaughtered every day to carry out such “ritual” if it is still being practiced today?

So Yahweh knew the sacrifice of animals’ blood needed to “sanctify” oneself those days had to be replaced with humans’ blood that would do the job ‘once and for all’ and that’s where the idea of having 1 man to atone for the sins of the world was born and so was a Messiah that we now know is Jesus. That is why, it would not have been possible if the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ did not happen to fulfill such prophecy about the Lamb by prophets such as Isaiah in Isaiah 53 . It would also have failed to fulfill God’s ‘New Covenant’ to SAVE your SOUL and everyone else. So amigo, don’t you think it’s really time to wake up because you have fallen under the evil spell of the Satan long enough?

For your information, such “ritual” of ‘burnt sacrifice’ had already been outdated and became obsolete even long before you, anyone or I were born in the last century and the rest of those centuries way back to the first. It has had already been replaced with the shedding of the ‘one and only’ sacrifice of Jesus’ blood on the cross. The divine power of Jesus’ untainted blood is the only possible means to wash away the sins of anyone and everyone who obeys the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ and not by any man-made religion for goodness sake! Don’t you know that by now, amigo?

Even then, if one talks about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as the last fulfillment of God’s will and plan on earth in what is now known as the ‘New Covenant’, one can NEVER dismiss the logic, let alone the divinity that only someone as sinless as Jesus, perfect and holy as substantiated in Isaiah 53:9; 1 Peter 2:22, can atone for the sins of all humans. And Jesus had proven it because He rose from the dead and that only means – only He has the divine power to CONQUER death and none others, thus can SAVE your SOUL from eternal death, not earthly death! Are you aware of such truth coming out of the mouth of Yahweh, not man-made religions?

As such, if or when, you or anyone obeys the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, it is the same as having washed away one’s sins by the untainted blood of Jesus Christ and having conquered death by being resurrected from the dead together with Jesus through baptism to become a ‘new creation’ now known as a Christian. Is this a heresy? Whether it is or not, you will understand or still stubbornly not, even after having studied the Word of God, the Bible because the Satan is always around to get people screwed up in the head with his most powerful tool and that is man-made religions plus false prophets who, as “Gabriels” of the ‘Satan in disguise’ are ‘twisters’ of the Word of God, the Bible. Are you one of those screwed up by such ‘twisters?’ Certainly hope not!

The ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that is according to God’s standard, not Man’s, is all about OBEDIENCE by reciprocating the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ to REPENT and not by practicing any of those man-made “religious laws” and “rituals” to be so unrealistically, pretentious and irrelevantly seen as “righteous” and “holy”. It is about having the HUMILITY to feel remorseful of one’s sins and thus, one would willingly go down on one’s knees to SURRENDER oneself to the one and only Almighty Yahweh and REPENT by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ so that one can take on the biggest task of mankind to continue fulfilling His will and plan on earth and insomuch to become the ‘children of God’ or as one of the ‘sons of God’ in the kingdom of heaven in due time.

For any of us who are born of the flesh and blood to become OBEDIENT to God until death like in the case of Jesus is something that will take endless TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh, not “good works” alone to make it possible. As such, no one regardless of race or status can really rely on “good works” [Ephesians 2:8] as in the case of showing kindness or doing charity alone to gain favor in the sight of God. But then again, it does not mean doing “good works” is entirely out of the question here.

“Hey Mister, first you said “good works” can and then cannot.” “So, what are you talking about here because you are contradicting yourself and getting people confused.” “Can you make up your mind whether can or cannot rely on good works?”

Well, amigo, it is all about setting one’s priorities right according to God’s standard and that’s what really matters to Yahweh and to save one’s soul. Got the point? I guess not. And that means you got to keep reading the Word of God, the Bible until you really understand what it means to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to become a Christian. Only then will everything start falling into place and make sense to you. Otherwise, you do not even know what you stand for – for a start!

Apparently, many people especially those unbelievers, skeptics, religious detractors and whatnot, whose beliefs and convictions are according to Man’s standards, they would undoubtedly disagree on the precept of TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh. Why? That’s because what’s only real and practical to them are the normal view of the masses that only “Seeing Is Believing”. So that means if one can’t see God, there is no God according to Man’s standards. Because of that, it’s so easy for one to have gotten misled by the Satan to “believe” then that one can make “God” in man’s image to make “Seeing Is Believing” possible. That’s how humans became so rebellious and unrepentant until today as prophesied in Isaiah 9:16! Am I not right to say so? And that is exactly what Jesus meant when He pointed out what a ‘faithless and perverse generation’ it was then and it is now!

Even though one should consciously and conscientiously accept such precepts of TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh as according to God’s standard and found written in the Holy Bible especially in the Book of Hebrews as the basic foundation to inherit eternal life, yet humans are foolish enough not to accept such fundamental principles with an open heart and mind as something that is what really matters to Yahweh and what made SOS possible too – for every soul. But sadly, that is not the case with today’s people who always oppose God’s ways but will adhere to Man’s ways instead.

If people are smart enough to think according to God’s standard, not Man’s, I believe every right thinking person in the world today would have no problem at all in having obeyed the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ already, right or not? And “if” such is the case already happening all these while, the world would not have wasted so much time beseeching one another in a god-forsaken time-warp of ‘faithless and perverse generation’ trying to propagate “peace” and “harmony” only made worse because of man-made religions and false prophets compounding the problem further.

If one does pick up enough courage to defy any religious edict whether as a Muslim or not, to study the Bible with TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh, there is definitely NOT a chance for one to miss out the most significant point. And that is: God has been from time immemorial TRUSTING and FAITHFULLY awaiting all humans to reciprocate His TRUST and FAITH in everyone regardless of race or status to come back to Him on the correct path by doing the one and only most simple and right thing in the world. That is: obedient to Him first, by consciously and conscientiously reciprocating the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ to REPENT and ‘come clean’ which is only possible by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, not just by doing “good works” alone, or through man-made religions.

Ironically, after you or anyone having obeyed the gospel of Jesus and became a ‘new creation’ as what a Christian is today, then again, you cannot entirely rely on TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh alone to gain favor in His sight. Your TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh will not work [James 2:26] if it is not strong and powerful enough to push you to the front-line of the ‘Holy War’ to fight the LORD’s battle which is about doing God’s will, and that is to trustingly and faithfully spread the ‘Good News’ of Jesus to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Now, that is of course doing the ‘good works’ of the Lord according to God’s standard . However, it is not the same as doing those “good works” [charity] according to Man’s standards [Matthew 6:1-4] and the ‘good works’ among the brotherhood of Christians in James 2:14-25. Sounds confusing? It is not when you sincerely and honestly study the Word of God, the Bible! Trust me – Yahweh will guide you if you do so with TRUST and FAITH in Him, not in man-made religions!

You see, once you understood what it meant to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ and know how definitely necessary that TRUSTING and having FAITH in Yahweh is, it will lead you to become a true Christian according to God’s standard. Then, you will aspire to become an “extremist for Christ” just like He became an “extremist” to DIE and SAVE you and the world from ‘sin, death, and the devil’. If not, you will end up as just a “Christian” only, dead and stagnant in one’s track as in meaningless and thus, not able to continue running the most ‘Amazing Race of God’ to win the crown of life [James 1:12].

We all know so well or at least heard of it that Yahweh had already sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, as the perfect example for us to follow and to obey God’s commandments by fulfilling His Father’s will and plan on earth and that every true Christians should do likewise, right? Or at least, everyone whether as Christians or not, should know by now that it has become what is now known as the ‘Hope of Salvation’ in Jesus for the humankind to be saved from ‘sin, death and the devil’, right? And it was ultimately Yahweh’s promise of eternal life for anyone and everyone who obeys the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ that was divinely sealed by the shedding of Jesus’ untainted blood nearly two thousand years ago, right? And because of all these fulfillment already taken place, still, Jesus had warned even while He was walking the earth that there will be always self-proclaimed false prophets arising to tell you otherwise, right?

So why do people still not do the right thing according to God’s standard but Man’s? Jesus also said you shall know them by their “fruits” and one of the most dangerous tell-tale signs that one can easily see is false and twisted interpretation of the Bible scriptures that one can even watch at YouTube, right? So amigo, why still not do the really right thing according to God’s standard and set everything right again and stand by God as He would, for you? Don’t you know you got all the rights in the world to do so and that you don’t have to answer to anyone and much less any man-made religion but God only! Why still so afraid to TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh to believe His promise of eternal life by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus?’ Is it because you’re so afraid that you will become unpopular in doing so?

Not surprisingly, to obey the gospel of Jesus is such a simple commandment for humans to obey, yet so surprisingly, it has become the “most difficult” commandment for humans to follow and to obey until today because of man-made religions and false prophets compounding the problem! Have you not had any ideas what went wrong with the heart and conscience of humans today just to obey the simplest commandment of God? I guess not!

When Adam and Eve failed to obey God’s commandment not to eat from the tree of knowledge and life, everyone including myself at one time also defended that it was their fault that they sinned against God and not everyone else. As such, no one born after them should ever be held responsible for their sins. Is it not right? Okay, that’s fair enough to say it’s not your problem or anyone else and that’s about clear the air. Is that so? I don’t think so!

How could it be so, especially now that you are a grown-up who knows how to surf the Internet that makes it so much easier for anyone, whether “religious” or not, to scam people until penniless or to satisfy one’s lust watching obscene videos. Can you then be so confidently thumping your chest and write an official SD [statutory declaration] that you have not made any mistakes such as telling lies whether white lies or religious lies, or committed any wrongdoings all your life such as cheating, whether it’s women, money and whatnot, thus not having incurred a “single” sin against Yahweh your Creator? You can’t? Of course you can’t, amigo, because God already said so in Romans 3:23!

If Jesus said that even lusting after a woman in the mind is already having committed adultery, then, can you imagine what could be even worse in today’s modern world with people so easily and freely watching obscene videos in the Internet and in the comfort of one’s home? Coupled with the fact that many people are without a heart and conscience to guide them, perhaps then, don’t you think this is the main contributing factor to the rise in domestic crimes such as rape, incest and beatings, so on and so forth? Do you not know what Jesus was trying to point out here that still many so-called religious people today haven’t got a clue and yet still barking up the wrong tree like blaming it on YouTube or the Internet? No? I guess not.

So amigo, you see, it’s not You Tube or Internet that is the problem here – it’s humans who do not know or realize something is very wrong with “human nature” aka sinful nature that badly needed the ‘Amazing Grace of God’ to come to the rescue! In contrast, man-made religions will only lead you to nowhere, not even near the 3 R’s namely, redemptionreconciliation and relationship with Yahweh!

The reason Jesus made such a statement during his time and recorded in Matthew 5:27-30 is because He [Jesus] already knew so well in advance at that time that no matter what man-made “religious laws” and “rituals” implemented in the future by man-made religion such as the “hudud-laws” of Islam as an example, will still be not good enough to deter and much less scare people, whether one is religious or not, from committing sins if one does not even know how to let one’s conscience be the guide.

So what Jesus meant was that it’s the ‘heart and conscience’ that’s what really matters to Yahweh, and to save one’s SOUL. No one, as flesh and blood, should end up becoming like “robots” practicing those man-made “religious laws” and “rituals” that absolutely means nothing to God because it’s not according to God’s standard but Man’s! It’s as plain and simple as that! So how confusing can this be?

Besides, there is NO evidence or unquestionable statistics to suggest that all such man-made “religious laws” and “rituals” even though made mandatory have ever had successfully proven to have caused any drastic drop in the crime index worldwide. Neither are people, whether “religious” or not, getting anywhere near “righteous” and “holy” according to God’s standard. Are there? I don’t think so! In fact, the result is the opposite of what people do not see – it’s getting worse instead!

One can easily attest to it if one reads the daily news or the Internet that more and more people, even white-collar workers like bank employees and so-called trusted civil servants like cops and immigration officers have been reported to commit crimes lately like cheating, robbery and drugs related incidents. Why did such people still commit crimes even when they were gainfully employed? The answer is simple – GREED, and in which case is because of our ‘sinful nature’ that simply does not have the willpower to control the satanic urge to sin especially when one does not have a heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ and save the day.

The whole point of the argument is that, if you let your heart and conscience as your true guide, it will naturally either prevent or stop you from violating and breaking any laws whether it is God’s laws or Man’s laws. The reason humans keep breaking and violating any laws be it religious or not is because they NO LONGER have a heart and conscience to know what really matters to Yahweh, let alone to save one’s SOUL. That’s where the biggest problem is that even “extremely religious” people can’t see! All such “religious laws” and “rituals” can do, are only plugging all the wrong holes for all the wrong reasons but failed miserably to be the real SOLUTION and the ANSWER in bringing back the heart and conscience as the true guide of anyone by REPENTING and obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to save the day.

So, do you really know what really matters to Yahweh? Can obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ bring back the heart and conscience of everyone and thus, save everyone’s soul? Obviously you should know by now or should you not? If you do, well then, do you have the heart and conscience to REPENT and obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ now? If you don’t, does that not mean you are still as screwed up as what Romans 3:23 said, whether you are religious or not?

And if by now you still do not know what really matters to Yahweh, then nothing else really matters anymore! Then, you can “safely” go back to “Be Yourself” in Romans 3:23 as you always are and will be without the need to know what really matters to Yahweh and much less what SOS really means to you! Sounds better?

Does it not make you “feel good” too? You should, especially when you know what led the world to become what it is today was because of Adam and Eve who brought the “original sin” into the world that now everyone seems to have the “right” to confidently believe it’s their fault. As such, one should only put the blame on them and not on oneself. Is that right? I don’t think so!

The “original sin” that was then, not original anymore today because….

If one claims one should not ever be held responsible for the sin of Adam and Eve, then, how about one’s own sin even if it’s only “1” which is not likely so, is it? Had not one, whether “religious” or not, ever wondered how one would be ready to face and answer Yahweh whether now on earth or on Judgement Day because of what the Bible said in Romans 3:23? Now, if you don’t think what Yahweh said in Romans 3:23 is right and relevant; what makes you think then you are “right” and “relevant” in defending yourself with whatever mistakes and wrongdoings you committed by simply putting the blame on Adam and Eve but not yourself?

Whether we deny it or not and much less like it or not, it does not change the fact as well as the divine truth that Yahweh, not man-made religions, still have all the say in the end who would be rewarded with eternal life – or not. When it comes to the simple commandment of God for all humans to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’, such divinely relevant commandment even without making it as “mandatory” is simply irrefutable, inexcusable, and inescapable to obey! Meaning to say, what’s inevitably ugly that will happen in time to come will still turn out as inevitable to happen no matter what, when, how or why, as long as one fails to REPENT and obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ while still breathing. Plain and simple!

Do you know why? That is because where your destiny will bring you would pretty much depend on making the most significant decision in your lifetime and that is about whether you REPENT and obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ or not while you still have the ‘second chance’ on earth to do so before it expires.

If you think REPENTING by obeying the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ is not what really matters to your soul, which on the contrary, is exactly what really matters to Yahweh, then you should not put the blame on Adam and Eve but yourself for failing to obey God’s such simple commandment to save your own neck that in which case makes you no better than Adam and Eve. Don’t you think so?

If you cannot so much even do such a simple little thing like your canine friend can do to respect you as its master and now you, to show your TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh as your only Creator and Master by obeying His one and only simple commandment to obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’ to set yourself FREE from the curse of ‘sin, death and devil’ as well as to set your heart RIGHT with Yahweh by bringing back your heart and conscience to ‘come clean’ just so you can reconcile with Him, then, it is such a crying shame that you are unwittingly only making yourself become so lost for nothing at all because you simply failed to have even a wee bit of TRUST and FAITH in Yahweh.

If that is the case, it is certainly not something for you to “smile” as comfortably as you like because you already have made it the saddest day in your life by repeating the history to follow in the footsteps of Adam and Eve in having disobeyed God all the same! So, who to blame now, Adam and Eve or yourself?

To be born and end up on this planet is nothing the same as checking into a hotel, enjoy one’s stay and then check out with all ease. “No Sir/Madam, that’s two different thing altogether!”

When anybody “suddenly” check out of this “Planet Hotel” and vanished like vapor that only appeared but for a little while in James 4:14, there’s no telling where one’s SOUL would end up after leaving the physical body that dust to dust will it go whence it once came in Genesis 3:19. The one and only one sure way to know for 101% certain is to obey God’s commandment to become ‘obedient to Him until death’ by taking the first step to REPENT and obey the ‘Gospel of Jesus’. Then, do God’s will at all cost by spreading and preaching the ‘Good News’ of Jesus Christ, the only ‘Hope of Salvation’ for anyone and everyone unto all corners of the Earth regardless of what “religious” uproar, protest, persecution or annihilation! And remember this: there is NO such thing as “mission impossible” when you have the words of Isaiah 33:6 etched in your mind.

In case you did not notice, everyone definitely does not have problems checking into this “Planet Hotel” as on the day you were born, you brought with you the greatest joy to your parents, but sadly it’s not the same case anymore when checking out of this materialistic world. Almost everyone will have problems to a great extent than that of Adam and Eve when checking out of this ‘beautiful planet’ because: first, no one knows what the checking out time is and secondly, no one knows how one will check out is the most dreadful thing bothering anyone and everyone that is not just “A Nightmare on Elm’s Street”. It is on every street and even yours truly on ‘corbenstreet’. No one shall be spared the agony of leaving this world – either alone or lost and maybe both!

One can only be so sure that checking out of this “Planet Hotel” will not be like the “The Fast and the Furious” if one knows where is the correct gate to “speed” to. But unfortunately, even then not many will “speedily” findthe way, the truth and the life’ in John 14:6 as what Jesus had forewarned in Matthew 7:13-14. It’s a real tragedy if no one can see it coming when one “speedily” wind up on the wrong side of the divide between the living and the dead without knowing what really matters to Yahweh and what SOS really means!

Quite honestly, if one does TRUST and have FAITH in Yahweh, one does not to need take any other “speedy” ways [man-made religions] to Him except through Jesus in John 14:6. But if you are “speeding” to other man-made ways other than what “speed-limit” God had commanded you to obey, then you shall be seen as wrongfully “speeding” against the “speed-limit” of God’s commandment in doing what’s right, right?

………to be continued.
