the new age teachings that started to swamp the Church it was common for
people to say that God is changing to meet the needs of the world. As I pointed
out to these people the Word of God says He is the same yesterday, today and
tomorrow. [Hebrews 13:8] In fact when I pointed it out to a man high up in the
Church that God never changes he accused me of saying God was dead. The
new age and society has been trying to kill off God for many years but He is
and will forever be very much alive.
It is us who were dead, dead in our sins and He came to earth to bring life, life
in all its fullness. [Ephesians 2:5] He is life itself, a life so full of life it makes
you wonder at the life you see around you and in you, once you accept Yeshua
as Lord and Saviour. The things of the world grow dim and the things of God
glow like the morning star. [2 Peter 1:19] On the darkest days there is a light
that can shine through, bringing joy and rejoicing. A life like that of the new
born lamb as it dances and skips around the rocks. God is alive and very much
alive; the life around us is proof of this.
God creates life not death, mankind causes the death but God brings life. [1
John 5:12] To those who are sick God brings healing, those who are hurting
God brings repair, to those who are lost God brings them a map and shows
them the way home. [2 Kings 20:5] There is life in knowing the God who
brings joy to the heart not sadness and that life can be seen in the eyes of the
Believer. [Psalm 24:4] There is not just a hope for what is to come. It surpasses
hope, there is an assurance and a certainty in what is to come. [Hebrews 10:22]
Life is just that, it is about life and life is demonstrated in how we act and who
we are and how we respond to the promises of God.
For example do we enjoy life even with all of the problems it can bring? Are
we walking in the fruits of the Spirit which put the laugh in laughter – the
joy in joyful – the happy into happiness – smile into smiling and rejoice into
rejoicing. This is life the way it is meant to be and not the way we make it
when the things of the world start to weigh us down. I remember the PD days,
that is pre-depression days - those are the days when people were happy being
people. But today we have changed God into our image and ended up in a
situation which pulls people down not build them up.
God sent His Son into the World to save it not to pull it down. [] It is what
we have done to God over the last 50 years that has caused the people of the
World to wander from the truth; because if there is no truth in God why should
people seek the truth they are looking for in Him? The Church has thrown out
the truth of God that He is the only way to salvation. [] When we do this we
also throw out happiness and laughter and joy. All the things that help the life
of the Messiah to show through in all His strength in our lives are removed.
God is alive, He came to earth for such a short time in His history, they killed
Him on the cross and then He rose so that He could say: “I Am the Alpha and
the Omega I was dead but now I am alive and hold the keys to all things.”
[Revelation 1:18] He is the beginning of our lives, He is the middle and He
is the end. He is our every breath, He is our every heartbeat and He is every
second that we live. He is song in our voice and the spring in our step as we
dance and sing towards Glory. God is alive and well and His Word is alive
teaching and reproaching all. [2 Timothy 3:16] We can rejoice in a never
changing and a forever living and forgiving God whose love surpasses all we
can throw at it. He is alive forever more. Halleluyah!
