No insurmountable obstacles to come to know God

In their search for a god and for a church lots of people got mislead and may have found what they think is a

bubbling pull of ‘ideaological mind chairs’ to reach Heaven, explain it or attained the full realisation of self and divinity. The paths and methods has corrupted their hearts and minds, and continuously discontently! {In Search for God?}

Throughout the ages man has looked for best ways to have a peaceful life.

Man, even, speculate legends or stories of alien visitors, an upgrade of animals, sent to our planet but possessing high inteligence,mind control by their bio-creator and speed faster than that of light.along their scientific probing and awareness of the universe. {In Search for God?}

Lots of myths and lots of stories further the world is developing to the conclusion of times where it will be very important to know exactly how everything is. The Nazarene teacher Jeshua, Jesus, asked his followers to go out in the world and to tell others what he had said about his heavenly Father and the coming Kingdom.

Some people want others to believe that

“Only the Son that can reach the Father, for the path, mind, nature and will of the Father is in the heart of the Son” {In Search for God?}

But everybody should know that each person wherever in the universe can reach to the Father and shall be able to come to the Father as His child, when he or she wants so. There are no borders to meet God. The only obstacles are those made by man himself.

When we are willing to come to an other state of mind than most ungodly people have, God is willing to hear us calling for Him and shall from His site be calling for us. When we are prepared to listen to the Divine Creator He is willing to have the mist clearing up.

When God sees in our heart that we are ready to go for Him He shall let the foggy clouds in our mind clear up. Then we shall find a brighter cloud and a light surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses (all those examples of men and women of faith the Bible is talking about).

But we should be aware that God searches each individual and that we ourselves also do have to search our hearts as to how effectively we are willing to look for the right Way and how we want to change ourself to fit that what Jeshua would call a follower of him?

When a person is prepared to work at himself so that God sees that our faith can develop, He shall produces the right forces to get even more change. He then shall develop real strength. All should know that in essence we are very weak, but when we hand ourselves over to God we become stronger.

Though God requires from us some work as well. To be “made strong out of weakness” the one wanting to come close to God may not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.

2Co 6:14 The Scriptures 1998+  (14)  Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness?

Also when God comes to see that the person is seriously seeking Him and wants to be one of those who “are not of those who shrink back” … but of those who “have faith and preserve their souls” He shall stretch His Hands out. (Hebrews 10:39).

Heb 10:26-39 The Scriptures 1998+  (26)  For if we sin purposely after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a slaughter offering for sins,1 Footnote: 1See also 6:6, Heb. 9:7, Num. 15:15-28.  (27)  but some fearsome anticipation of judgment, and a fierce fire which is about to consume the opponents.  (28)  Anyone who has disregarded the Torah of Mosheh dies without compassion on the witness of two or three witnesses.  (29)  How much worse punishment do you think shall he deserve who has trampled the Son of Elohim underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was set apart as common, and insulted the Spirit of favour?  (30)  For we know Him who has said, “Vengeance is Mine, I shall repay, says יהוה {Jehovah}.” And again, “יהוה {Jehovah} shall judge His people.”  (31)  It is fearsome to fall into the hands of the living Elohim.  (32)  But remember the former days, when, after you were enlightened, you endured a great struggle with sufferings.  (33)  On the one hand you were exposed to reproaches and pressures, and on the other hand you became sharers with those who were so treated,  (34)  for you sympathised with me in my chains, and you accepted with joy the seizure of your possessions, knowing that you have a better and a lasting possession for yourselves in the heavens.  (35)  Do not, then, lose your boldness, which has great reward.  (36)  For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the desire of Elohim, you receive the promise:  (37)  “For yet a little while – He who is coming shall come and shall not delay.”  (38)  “But the righteous shall live by belief, but if anyone draws back, my being has no pleasure in him.”  (39)  But we are not of those who draw back to destruction, but of belief to the preservation of life.

The Nazarene man of flesh and blood, who was called “the only begotten son of God” and the “anointed” showed the way to the Most High Whom we all should come to worship.

Joh 4:24 The Scriptures 1998+  (24)  “Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship Him need to worship in spirit and truth.”

But true worship of the Elohim can only be given by true knowledge of Him. By listening to Jeshua his words and to the words written down by the many other chosen people of God, all can come to get to know God better. The resurrected man who showed his wounds to proof he is not a spirit, knew very well Who is the greatest on earth. Jesus also knew he could not do anything without his heavenly Father, the Only One God, he wanted everybody to know. By God His Power Jesus was able to do many incredible things. Like he never wanted to do his own will, he would like us also to do the Will of his Father, the Only One God.

Joh 4:34 The Scriptures 1998+  (34)  יהושע  {Jeshua} said to them, “My food is to do the desire of Him who sent Me, and to accomplish His work.

Reaching out to Christ we also can reach out to his heavenly Father, the God of Abraham. As Jesus is the son of God, a child of God, we by him also can become a child of God.

Joh 1:12-13 The Scriptures 1998+  (12)  But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name,  (13)  who were born, not of blood nor of the desire of flesh nor of the desire of man, but of Elohim.

Not from blood, nor from a will of flesh, nor from a will of man, but from God we shall be accepted in case we are found all right to enter the small gate of the Kingdom of God, by the one who received authority to judge.
To prepare ourselves for that moment of judgement God Himself has given His Words as a manual, so that no man has an excuse he or she did not know what to do or what to believe. Nobody would have to come with an excuse saying:

As for loving God, it scares me to put trust and love into something that I don’t know too well. And If I struggle with accepting love from people, why wouldn’t I be afraid of feeling love from something that is more powerful than I can imagine? I’ve lived a good chunk of my life believing that conditional love is the only love. Anything other than that is foreign to me. {Looking for and Listening to God}

The God of gods is not so far off that we would not able to get to know Him thoroughly. Some might say:

I’m really afraid that I’m not going to be able to figure out if something is a “bad” voice vs. “God’s voice”. That’s the first time I ever admitted that somewhere–that I’m afraid of hearing God. Not just as a voice, but even just the magnitude. I don’t think little ol’ me can deal with the magnitude of God. {Looking for and Listening to God}

When we take enough time to read God’s Word and are willing to give Him our ear and our mind, we shall clearly come to hear the difference of thoughts and voices. God His Voice shall resound in your world as the fog signal, accompanied by a bright light. When the Voice becomes clearer we also shall come to understand that perhaps we do have to become different than many others in this world. Listening to that Voice we shall come to understand that we may not conform to the ways of this world, which may mean that we as Christians shall be labelled and even at times treated differently. At moments we shall even doubt about ourselves, about the things around us, about our and others their faith. Though when we continue reading in the Holy Scriptures we shall find our way. We shall come to understand who is who. But we also shall come to see who governs this world at the moment. For many we might be ‘weirdos’ or ‘strangers’. We ourselves shall not object to be sojourners, as all our fathers were, because we do know that this is only a stage of life, an era which shall come to an end soon. Our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is no abiding.

1Ch 29:15 The Scriptures 1998+  (15)  “For we are sojourners and pilgrims before You, as were all our fathers; our days on earth are as a shadow, and without permanence.

We shall not have to be afraid to be looked at as fools or strange people. God calls us to be like foreigners and strangers.From hearing the Voice of God in the Holy Scriptures we shall get the right instructions to know more and to become wiser. We shall not feel ashamed any more to be different than the majority. We should not be like the people of this world, but let God change the way we think. Then we will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to Him, Who is the Most Important One in our life. It is worthwhile to renew our mind for Him.

Rom 12:2 The Scriptures 1998+  (2)  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim.
