How did God create man?

For those who claim God created man.. let’s settle this claim right here right now.. Explain in detail start to finish… How does God and God alone create man? Describe the method God uses and the criteria to which one is created with any deformities or born with a chronic illness? Here is your opportunity to clear this up once and for all..

Is communism define as a theory or system?

Communism is defined as “a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.” Acts 2:44-45 says of the first century church “all the believers were together and had everything in common.They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need.”

It would seem that if Christians truly wanted a government based on biblical Christianity, they would advocate for a communist model of government.

Atheists are so confused.

Atheists are so confused. They can’t decide what they believe, excuse me, don’t believe, no, do believe…ugh!

You have the atheists who believe God exists, but they have rejected Him.

You have the atheists who believe no God(s) exists.

You have the atheists who will believe God exists, but shown no evidence.

You have the atheists who believe God doesn’t exists, but a spirit world does.

Stop the madness, for the love of God and all that is holy, stop it.

Make up your minds and then just stick to one religion instead of all these sects.

Man vs God.

🙏🙏Need to read this. God says: “Since mankind’s contrivance of the social sciences, the mind of man has become occupied by science and knowledge. Science and knowledge then have become tools for the ruling of mankind, and there is no longer sufficient room for man to worship God, and no more favorable conditions for the worship of God. The position of God has sunk ever lower in the heart of man. Without God in his heart, man’s inner world is dark, hopeless and empty. Subsequently many social scientists, historians, and politicians have come to the fore to express theories of social science, the theory of human evolution, and other theories that contradict the truth that God created man, to fill the hearts and minds of mankind. And in this way, those who believe that God created everything have become ever fewer, and those who believe in the theory of evolution have become ever greater in number. More and more people treat the records of the work of God and His words during the age of the Old Testament as myths and legends. In their hearts, people become indifferent to the dignity and greatness of God, to the tenet that God exists and holds dominion over all things. The survival of mankind and the fate of countries and nations are no longer important to them, and man lives in a hollow world concerned only with eating, drinking, and the pursuit of pleasure. … Few people take it upon themselves to seek out where God does His work today, or to look for how He presides over and arranges the destination of man. And in this way, unbeknownst to man, human civilization becomes less and less able to hew to man’s wishes, and there are even many people who feel that, living in such a world, they are less happy than those who have already passed away. Even people of countries that used to be highly civilized air such grievances. For without the guidance of God, no matter how much rulers and sociologists wrack their brains to preserve human civilization, it is to no avail. No one can fill the emptiness in man’s heart, for no one can be the life of man, and no social theory can free man from the emptiness with which he is afflicted. Science, knowledge, freedom, democracy, leisure, comfort: these bring man only a temporary consolation. Even with these things, man still inevitably sins and bemoans the injustices of society. These things cannot restrain man’s craving and desire to explore. This is because man was made by God and the senseless sacrifices and explorations of man can only lead to more distress and can only cause man to exist in a constant state of fear, not knowing how to face the future of mankind or how to face the path that lies ahead. Man even comes to fear science and knowledge, and fear even more the feeling of emptiness. In this world, regardless of whether you live in a free country or one without human rights, you are utterly incapable of escaping the fate of mankind. Whether you are the ruler or the ruled, you are utterly incapable of escaping the desire to explore the fate, mysteries, and destination of mankind, much less are you capable of escaping the bewildering sense of emptiness. Such phenomena, which are common to all of mankind, are called social phenomena by sociologists, yet no great man can come forth to solve such problems. Man, after all, is man, and the position and life of God cannot be replaced by any man. Mankind does not just require a fair society in which everyone is well-fed and is equal and free; what mankind needs is the salvation of God and His provision of life to them. Only when man receives God’s provision of life and His salvation can the needs, the yearning to explore, and the spiritual emptiness of man be resolved. If the people of a country or a nation are unable to receive the salvation and care of God, then such a country or nation will tread the road of decline, toward darkness, and shall be annihilated by God.”

Not everyone does the work of God.


God says: “Not ever does the work of God conform to the conceptions of man, for His work is always new and never old. Not ever does He repeat work of old but rather forges ahead with work never before done. As God does not repeat His work and man invariably judges the work of God today based on His work of the past, it is exceedingly difficult for God to carry out each stage of work of the new age. Man presents far too many hindrances! The thinking of man is too hidebound! No man knows the work of God, yet they all define such work. Away from God, man loses life, truth, and the blessings of God, yet neither does man accept life nor truth, much less the greater blessings God bestows upon mankind. All men wish to gain God yet are unable to tolerate any changes in God’s work. Those who do not accept the new work of God believe that the work of God is changeless, and that the work of God forever remains at a standstill. In their belief, all that is needed to gain eternal salvation from God is to keep the law, and as long as they repent and confess their sins, the heart of God will be forever satisfied. They are of the opinion that God can only be the God under the law and the God who was nailed on the cross for man; it is their opinion too that God should not and cannot exceed the Bible. It is precisely these opinions that have shackled them firmly to the law of old and kept them fettered by rigid regulations.”


The time is now, how will God judge you?

🧐Recently I was thinking about a question. Peter did not know that he would later hold the keys to heaven, but he was willingly crucified and died for the Lord Jesus; Job did not know that the Lord would appear to him later, nor did he know that God would bless him much afterwards, yet he was able to have true obedience to God when the great trial came. I wondered, if God had not given us the promise of heaven, or assuming that we would not enter heaven at all, would my heart of faith in God be the same as it is now? What would my attitude toward God be if I had nothing and was in such great pain as Job was? Would I really be able to obey? If God asks me, “Have you ever been true to me at all? Have you ever been true to me without any dealings and without any mixture? I thought of 2 paragraphs of God’s words to share with you.

🙏God says:”So many believe in Me only that I might heal them. So many believe in Me only that I might use My powers to drive unclean spirits out from their bodies, and so many believe in Me simply that they might receive peace and joy from Me. So many believe in Me only to demand from Me greater material wealth. So many believe in Me just to spend this life in peace and to be safe and sound in the world to come. So many believe in Me to avoid the suffering of hell and to receive the blessings of heaven. So many believe in Me only for temporary comfort, yet do not seek to gain anything in the world to come. When I brought down My fury upon man and seized all the joy and peace he once possessed, man became doubtful. When I gave unto man the suffering of hell and reclaimed the blessings of heaven, man’s shame turned into anger. When man asked Me to heal him, I paid him no heed and felt abhorrence toward him; man departed from Me to instead seek the way of evil medicine and sorcery. When I took away all that man had demanded from Me, everyone disappeared without a trace. Thus, I say that man has faith in Me because I give too much grace, and there is far too much to gain. “

God says:”You must have visions as your foundation. If misfortune befalls you one day, what ought you to do? Would you still be able to follow Him? Do not say lightly whether you would be able to follow to the end. You had better first open wide your eyes to see just what time it is now. Though you may currently be like pillars of the temple, a time will come when all such pillars will be gnawed by worms, causing the temple to collapse, for at present, there are so many visions that you lack. You only pay attention to your own little worlds, and you do not know what the most reliable and appropriate way of seeking is. You do not heed the vision of the work of today, nor do you hold these things in your hearts. Have you considered that one day your God will put you in a most unfamiliar place? Can you imagine what would become of you one day when I might snatch everything from you? Would your energy on that day be as it is now? Would your faith reappear? “

Faith Job Requirements


Are you a good fit for a faith-based job.

The fact that you are interested in obtaining faith-oriented employment may be a good indicator that you are fit for this career path.

The bigger question may be which job, rather than if you should pursue one. Each job requires different skills and comes with its own set of challenges. However, as mentioned before, one overriding factor that must be in place is a strong faith. Whether you are thinking of becoming a member of clergy or simply continuing your current occupation for a faith-based employer, a guiding, well-practiced faith must be a big part of your life.

Members of Clergy

All faiths include a leader or coordinator of some kind, whether that is a priest, elder, pastor, rabbi, cantor, or director. These positions make up the clergy. In addition, some faiths also hire music directors, youth leaders, and similar personnel who are also considered part of the clergy. Members of clergy are expected to do more than just lead the congregation in worship. They are also expected to perform pastoral care and direct the spiritual growth and understanding of the congregants. This means two things: you will be working closely with people, and you will be called to work at odd hours of the day or night. For this reason, clergy members should not just have a strong faith, but a genuine desire to help others. Clergy members should also have strong communication and leadership skills. And when it comes to those odd hours, if you are the kind of person that likes structure, a routine, and set work hours, you may want to reconsider this career path. Clergy members must be able to get to a hospital or congregant’s home when an emergency arises, even if it is in the middle of the night. Patience is also a much needed characteristic for these employees.

Many clergy members are expected to have or obtain advanced educational degrees, such as a master’s degree in Theology, or in the Jewish faith, attend a Jewish theological school or seminary.

Requirements for Other Faith-based Jobs

In addition to clergy positions, there are a multitude of jobs available.

Some of the more prevalent jobs include camp directors and counselors, ministry and mission directors, faith-based non-profit organization leaders and workers, licensed counselors, chaplains at hospitals, prisons, and other establishments, and teachers. 

As you read through this list (and it certainly isn’t an exhaustive one), the common element of each job is that it is a “people” job: each worker will be working closely with clients and other constituents on a daily basis. If you are not a “people person” it does not mean you should not obtain a faith-based job. It simply means you’ll either need to develop your people skills, or look harder for a different kind of faith-based job that is not as people-intensive. For example, if you love working with numbers and have experience as an accountant, you can choose to become an accountant for a ministry, church, or non-profit organization or school. However, for the vast majority of religious jobs, you’ll need to have good people and communication skills, and be able to get along well with many kinds of people. If this does not describe you, a faith-based career may not be for you.


Faith based Sector.

Religious Jobs


The Internet is a marvellous technological revolution and thanks to other new telecommunications technologies, businesses are becoming more specialized.

Many new small businesses in different business sector’s are plentiful as people are down-sized and discover an untapped niche. This trend also holds true when it comes to faith-based careers and businesses. People looking to work for a faith-based company have more choices today than ever before.

While most people think of the traditional faith-based jobs such as pastoral work, youth minister, camp counselors, etc, others are finding that the reach of religion oriented jobs is much wider. Whether you are an accountant, lawyer, or work in many other professional or non-professional fields, you can find employment at a faith-based organization. This is true for many of the faiths people practice today.

So what is Temple Mogic’s definition of a faith-based or religious job?

A faith-based job is one in which the person that holds it (or is hired for it) should have a strong and active faith (among other job-related qualifications). While employers cannot discriminate among prospective or current employees on the basis of their chosen faiths, most faith-based employers typically produce a product or service related to that faith, and therefore employees working on that product or service should be knowledgeable of that faith. In the case of support personnel, such as accountants, administrative representatives, etc, this type of knowledge isn’t as critical, but these employers expect their employees to adhere to faith-based business principals.

People of all educational levels can find rewarding careers with faith-based organizations. You don’t have to have a degree in theology for every faith-based job. What you should have, is a deep faith that helps guide your day to day decisions, whether that faith is Christian, non-denominational, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, or any other religion


“Praise him with tambourine and dance;


Hello my friend, I hope you are doing well this day.

I wanted to share some of my favourite passages of the Bible, these passages inspire me and help me to remember how to worship the Lord.

Words which stand out for me in the follow passages are “dance, praise, everlasting steadfast love, sleep, desolate places to pray”.

These words help me to remember my devotion to God and how to draw closer to him.

“But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children,”

Psalm 103:17 ESV

“A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man.”

Proverbs 24:33-34 ESV

“But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray.”

Luke 5:16 ESV

When I see these words within my devotional practice, I’m drawn to an ancient spiritual practice known as Bhakti.


What is Bhakti?


https://pluralism.org/bhakti-the-way-of-devotion


Bhakti..

Bhakti: The Way of Devotion



Bhakti – devotion to the divine – is based on another interpretation of Vedanta: that the soul and the Divine are not One, but inexpressibly, mysteriously, both One and distinct, allowing for a relationship of love. This loving devotion, bhakti, is expressed through songs, hymns, offerings, dances, and plays.

Where an image of the divine is present and loving worship upon that image is sought, singing, dancing and praising the divine, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is forever in our hearts and whose presence grows stronger throughout proper practice and offerings to him.



Notice how the Lord works through you after your devotional practice, bringing about solutions to your unconscious mind while you sleep.

If this works for you, don’t forget to share it with others, either by attending a spiritual ceremony, or group and testifying how the love of Christ was present within you while you performed your strict devotion to him.

Peace and blessings to you Amen.
