He Sees It All!

“But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.” (John 3:21 NIV)

What we do in the dark,

Always comes to the surface,

Whether, evil or good, truth or lie,

He sees it all!

What’s the point of doing things under the cloak of darkness? Do we not understand that not only does God see it all, but He knows our hearts, and whether our thoughts are good or evil? Is it because we think we are wiser than He?

For the Believer who knows the Truth and has been brought into the marvelous Light of Truth, we know nothing is hidden from Him. But for those who choose to not believe, they think their unbelief will shield them from God’s sight. Nothing is ever hidden from the One who created all things and without Him, nothing was ever created.God has said in His Word that He created the evil for His purposes. In this way, He has allowed us options. Choose good or choose evil. Whatever our choices are, they will the basis or foundation for the verdict we receive at the end.

I want to be found guilty! Guilty of believing everything God says; guilty of giving my heart over to Jesus; guilty of living a life that was pleasing to Him, guilty of presenting the Gospel to others at every opportunity; guilty of loving all unconditionally; guilty of standing tall and refusing to budge in agreement with His Word; guilty of proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord, our Redeemer and Risen King! Guilty as charged! That is all I want Him to see!

Others who disavow His existence will hear another verdict–especially when they had opportunity to hear, but refused to accept. That is their fate because He sees it all!

No Believer can ever determine where anyone will reside for eternity–that is not our role in life. Our role is simply to tell all we meet that God is and forever will be–the only One who has established the verdicts we will–whether we walk in darkness or in the Light–He knows–He sees it all!

If anyone reading this post is yet walking in darkness, I pray they will allow the love of God to fill their hearts to overflowing and make a decision today, to walk in the Light as He is the Light!

Entering Into The Promise!

“Who were they who heard and rebelled? Were they not all those Moses led out of Egypt? And with whom was he angry for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies perished in the wilderness? And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief”( Hebrews 3:16-19 NIV).

In the midst of teaching about the bible, many have heard the sermons, the teachings, the instructions, the invitations and in spite of all that—rejected the promise of salvation. The promise through Moses was to go into the land of milk and honey—being saved from the harshness of what their lives once were. However, since many could not follow instructions—and rather chose to ignore the God who had brought them out of Egypt—and rebelled against all that Moses was trying to instill—they never saw the promised land.

We can look at this passage of scripture and see how things went awry then, but can we look at our lives and see the same thing happening? Why is it that so many who were taught, rebelled? Why is it that people some would rather promulgate sin than live a life that moves people into promised land—heaven? Now, we really need to think about what we do and how it relates to “entering into His rest” or living a life of turmoil and confusion.  Since we know that God is not the author of confusion (Satan is), all of the confusion in the world is a result of people living under the influence of the author.

God says: Give your all to me and live for eternity.

Satan says: Surely, God doesn’t mean what He says.

God says: I am a jealous God and I don’t want you to worship other gods.

Satan says: Build a monument unto me so I can cause confusion in the land.

God says: I will never leave you or forsake you.

Satan says: The minute you get in trouble, you’re on your own.

God says: I will always love you.

Satan says: What’s love got to do with anything?

God says: Your body is the temple where the Holy Spirit dwells.

Satan says: It’s your body. Do what you want with it.

God says: Think on all the things that bring honor and glory to Him.

Satan says: Here—smoke this, snort this, shoot-up this, drink this, use this and allow your mind to rise above your circumstances.

Satan knows that a mind is a terrible thing to waste, which is why he wants yours wasted and why he attacks the mind.

This conversation could go on for years, but I hope the point is made. Whatever God says, Satan always has something to say to counter it-the opposite and when we receive the opposite of God’s promises—we have only ourselves to blame.

God help us to recognize the tricks of the enemy. Help us to see the deceptions, the lies, the destruction he causes and joy he steals when all hope is lost. Help us to submit to You and resist the influence of all who don’t know You. Help us to recognize those who are sincere, from those who are simply posturing goodness—on a superficial level- so we may enter into the promise. We thank You for hearing and answering prayer.
