Living In An Upside Down World Part 1


Today we are living within an upside down world. In many instances what is wrong is embraced as right and what is right is embraced as wrong. This is why it is so very important that you get to know the TRUTH of GOD’S WORD firsthand.  Know it well for yourself intimately and personally. This way you will not be so easily towed right along with everything you hear and see.

 

The Apostle Paul wanted to alert the Church to see how to recognize and confront “false teaching”. Paul wrote to the Church extensively because he was so concerned that so many were getting caught up with the bureaucracy and the traditions of man. Paul encouraged the Church to preserve, model, embrace and live out Christian principles in every area of their daily life. Today right now we too need to be mindful of these very same things. Many of the ways of the world have crept in and discreetly  attached themselves to God’s Church. 

 

Quite often when one reads and visits the corridors of  Scripture they see the characters and situations as merely historical and sometimes fictional. This can often cause one to become far removed from the wealth of applicable practical wisdom endowed within the Scriptures. They will quite often  respond in an aloof manner to the lessons presented and overlook the priceless wisdom lessons intended.

 

The people, prophets, priests and kings of the Bible were real genuine people. They were from every facet of life with authentic issues no different than what we see today. God really is the same God who always was and always will be! He does not change His moral attributes, characteristics or standards to suit the masses. He adamantly declares; “I am the LORD JEHOVAH, I change not…”

 

We have been created for His Glory. He is eternal; in Him through His Son Christ Jesus we who have accepted Him within our hearts as Lord and Savior have been given the gift of eternal life.

 

Time belongs to God. We operate within His time frame for us.  We have all the time we need to do and be whatever it is He has created each one of us to become. However short or long our time is upon earth  remains to be discovered…  We must look to Him  to discover  the way and means to accomplish our life’s purpose. This is why it is so very important to know His Word for yourself. 

 

The Book of Ephesians is an excellent book to indulge your mind in for spiritual enlightenment.  There is a wealth of spiritual knowledge here  to glean from. The Church became embroiled in endless questions, arguments, politics and controversies that took them away from studying the Scriptures. We must be mindful that it is so important to not get side-tracked from the intended purpose. It is important to sincerely desire and ask to be filled with His Spirit in order to glean the true intended meaning of the Scriptures so we can rightfully divide and apply its intended purposes.

 

Many strive for popularity, prestige, or to have followers and recognition rather than seek for God’s approval. These things within themselves are not bad, but we must know that man is fickle and inconsistently changes very easily. God is consistent and always right.  Therefore it is important to know that through the Lord we really have everything we will ever need. He really does know absolutely everything we think, say do or do not do!

 

Although it may not be readily tangibly present. We can rest assure that God’s power is always accessible. We never become the power, we are simply given access via His will.  This is why we should say and desire; “Your will and Your way Lord.” Ephesians tells us “Jesus Christ has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight…” Ephesians 1. Ponder on this passage of Scripture for a while allow it to marinate. Go deeply into its contents to digest and  glean the multiplicity of intended benefits. Yes, every spiritual blessing we need we have access through the Lord.  Let this reinforce within you the marvelous security and spiritual significance that rings forth. It says not some but all spiritual blessings are available in Him.

 

There are incredible benefits in knowing and having a personal intimate relationship with the Lord. These blessings are not always visible where one can see. Spiritual blessings far exceed the material blessings. There is an endless array.  But they are available and accessible in the eternal heavenly spiritual realm. This means that they are eternal. God chose us and we belong to Him. This all took place way back before any of us even ever  existed. Our little finite minds cannot conceive the totality of God. We are just minute particles in His whole scheme of things. No matter how small, large, visible or unseen it is all relevant and omniscient to Him.
