Are you looking for answers and Are you looking for God

God knows the heart of all people. This means He also knows the searching person, the one who is looking for answers. Are you such person? Are you looking for many answers? Are you looking for God?

People should know there is only One True God Who provided all answers in His Word. First of all there is nature itself which can provide already for some answers and showing the Hand of God. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard and no place on earth where God’s Voice can not be heard.

Psa 19:1-4 The Scriptures 1998+  (1)  The heavens are proclaiming the esteem of Ěl; And the expanse is declaring the work of His hand.  (2)  Day to day pours forth speech, And night to night reveals knowledge.  (3)  There is no speech, and there are no words, Their voice is not heard.  (4)  Their line has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world. In them He set up a tent for the sun,
Isa 40:26 The Scriptures 1998+  (26)  Lift up your eyes on high and see. Who has created these? He who is bringing out their host by number, He calls them all by name, by the greatness of His might and the strength of His power – not one is missing.

Our way cannot be hidden from יהוה {Jehovah}, the Elohim Who knows every heart and wishes that each heart may come to Him.

1Sa 16:7 The Scriptures 1998+  (7)  But יהוה {Jehovah} said to Shemu’ĕl, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have refused him, for not as man sees, for man looks at the eyes, but יהוה looks at the heart.” 1Ki 8:39 The Scriptures 1998+  (39)  then hear in the heavens, Your dwelling place, and forgive, and act, and render unto everyone according to all his ways, whose heart You know. Because You – You alone – know the hearts of all the sons of men,

1Ch 28:9 The Scriptures 1998+  (9)  “As for you, my son Shelomoh, know the Elohim of your father, and serve Him with a perfect heart and with a pleasing life, for יהוה {Jehovah} searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you do seek Him, He is found by you; but if you forsake Him, He rejects you forever.

The Word of God, given in the Bible assures us that God does not tell lies and that He will let Himself be found.

Num 23:19 The Scriptures 1998+  (19)  “Ěl is not a man, to lie; nor a son of man, to repent! Has He said, and would He not do it; or spoken, and would not confirm it?

Mat 7:7 The Scriptures 1998+  (7)  “Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you.

Pro 8:17 The Scriptures 1998+  (17)  “I love those who love me, And those who earnestly seek me do find me.

The way to search for God is by searching in the Words He Himself has given the world. He provided the world with His infallible Word. When more languages came into that world God’s Word also got translated in more languages, so that each group of people speaking one or the other language could find the Word of God in one or an other language he can understand. But to come to understand the Word of God an open mind is needed and man must put away the human doctrines and false teachings. When people are willing to hear what is really written in the Holy Scriptures and are taking the words for what they say, there should be no problem. Than the words are not so confusing like many may assume. It is because most people give preference to the things they have picked up from childhood and which they have learned in their environment, their churches, friends and enemies. Though to take the words like they are written in the bible seems for many too difficult because they seem to interfere with many thoughts they prefer keeping so that they can enjoy all those traditions which man loves to hold. But the God of order and clarity wants us to make the right choice also and to make everything clear in our own heart. do we want to keep to those human traditions and human rules, or are we prepared to take the statutes of the Only One True God and believe what is written in the Bible, His Word brought by Godly inspired men.

  • Another word not to use carelessly (blcasey.wordpress.com)
    We learn from ancient history — from Moses, Uzzah, and others — that God is not to be treated carelessly.  Most of my readers would affirm this idea today, and it surely seems unlikely that God in more contemporary times would suddenly come to appreciate flippancy.
  • Hearing Voices: Counterpoint in the Epic of Moses (3quarksdaily.com)
    Great epic struggles play out, layered one on top of another, in recent weeks, in past centuries and in ancient times. The state’s attorney for Baltimore City, Marilyn J. Mosby, filed the charges against six ‘rough riding’ police officers on a range of crimes including murder in the arrest and fatal injury of Freddie Gray. This came shortly after we marked 150 years since the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, who, in his words and in his deeds, freed the slaves from their bondage, and freed the Constitution of the United States from the shackles of an intolerable contradiction. We marked Lincoln’s assassination just after Passover, the holiday celebrating the emancipation of slaves from ancient Egypt. It is a story as universal in its meaning to all human beings as it is particular to the Hebrews.
  • Do you search the scriptures? (disciplesofhope.wordpress.com)
    Some people say they want to get ‘closer’ to God and to achieve this they subject themselves to extreme levels of fasting, self-flagellation and other penances but they still feel they are lacking in something. Well, what they lack is that they are yet to encounter Jesus Christ in the Holy Scriptures. Don’t be like them, you search for Christ in the Bible and be filled with his grace and mercy.
  • In Faith? (elijahblogfire.com)
    Being in faith is to be strong, bold courageous, determined, to persevere, to ignore the feelings or negative circumstances, to be assertive, and to remain fighting and steadfast!…Holding your grounds Regardless of whatever comes against you.
  • “Scripture Thoughts” ~ Hebrews 8:10 (eudoranachand.wordpress.com)
    The book of revelation is a revealing about the future and helps us here in the present as well teaching us and guiding us in how we should live for Yahwey now. This revelation of Yahushua given to Him by Yahwey; inspires hope to His bondservants, especially those who have suffered or will suffer persecution because of the faith  and their testimony regarding Yahushua and His final victory over evil when He returns to set up His kingdom.

    John saw and heard things that were revealed to Yahushua and John wrote down what he saw and heard.  Most folks mistakenly believe that this is the revelation of John but that is incorrect.  John is simply a messenger who transcribed this book of prophecy from an angel.

  • Trust in the Lord God (heartfixxer.wordpress.com)
    God sees our every move, knows our every thought, and is intimately aware of our situation. He hears our prayers and has a unique path set aside for each of us. We all have free will, but as followers of the living God we should yearn to live our lives in a way that is pleasing in his sight. Allow him to influence your steps and light your path, he will guide you and give you strength.
  • Lift Up Our Eyes (theotherjc.com)
    Repent. Get back on track. Begin again. Pick things up from where they were. Do something positive about whatever ‘it’ is.
  • A Spiritual Prescription (discoveringandsharinggrace.com)
    I believe we need to be better listeners. Before talking about our faith or church, take time to know the person and more  about their walk of faith…or their walk away from faith.
