Foundation of a close relationship with God

First of all to come to a good relationship with some one, one has to talk with that person and has to listen to what that person has to tell.

God talks to the people by the way of His Word, presented to mankind by the many Bible translations, so that most people can read and hear God.s Words in a language they can understand.

To talk to God or to go in conversation with Him, we simply can direct our thoughts and words to Him above. Such talking with God we also call “praying”.

Communication through prayer is the foundation of a close relationship with God. (Ps. 86:3; 1 Thess. 5:17; Rom. 12:12) When we take sufficient time to express to Jehovah our deepest thoughts and innermost feelings, we cannot help but be drawn closer to our heavenly Father, the “Hearer of prayer.” (Ps. 65:2) In addition, when we discern that Jehovah answers our prayers, our love for him grows. We come to realize ever more that

“Jehovah is near to all those calling on him.” (Ps. 145:18)

That confidence in Jehovah’s loving support will help us to cope with further tests of faith.

Motivated by love

The One Who created everything and Who gave His Word, did all He did with a purpose and out of love.

The Bible teaches us that

“God is love.” (1 John 4:8)

Everything God does is motivated by love.

Out of love created man in His image also with the intention to have a good relationship with man. He wanted man to fit His creation and to have a nice and great life in a peaceful world. He did not have the intention that His creatures would have to suffer. But because of the rebellion of the first human beings, out of love God did not destroy them but gave the world into their hands. Man was allowed to make something of the world God had given in their hands.

Think about this:

If you had the power, would you remove all the suffering and injustice in the world?

When there is enough empathy in you and when you some part of the love of God in you, you would.

What about God?

God didn’t stop humans when they chose to rebel and do what is bad. As a Father He told His children that they had done wrong. He has the power to start all over again or to create new beings. But He gave His human beings the chance to create their own world. He even allowed them to do it in their own way.

So when something bad happens, we should remember that God didn’t make it happen. It would be unfair to blame God.

He has the power, and because he loves us, he will remove all suffering and injustice. There is a very good reason why God has not yet stopped bad things from happening. In later postings we will talk about that and show you that it is part of God’s love that man got so much to say about the world and was or is so free to do with the world, what he wants to do with it.

You can be sure that God loves us and that He is never to blame for our problems. In fact, He is the only One who can solve them. ​— Isaiah 33:2.

God is an exceptional eternal Spirit Being, set apart or holy. (Isaiah 6:3) Everything He does is pure, clean, and good. We can not say we can trust every other human being. But with God we can find Someone Who keeps to His Words and promises. So we can trust him. Humans are not like that. They sometimes do wrong things. And even the most honest ruler does not have the power to repair all the damage that bad people do. No one has as much power as God has. He can and will repair all the damage that has been done by bad people. He will remove all evil forever.​ — Read Psalm 37:9-11.

One day the world shall be convinced that He alone has the solution for us, to live in a restored world with a restored good relationship with God.

The Bible an exciting gift

In the previous writings we saw that the Divine Creator gave His Word to the world so that people could come to know Him.

The Bible is a gift from God. It gives us information that we can’t find anywhere else. For example, it tells us that God created the heavens, the earth, and the first man and woman. It gives us principles that can help us when we have problems. In the Bible, we learn how God will accomplish his purpose to make the earth a better place. The Bible is such an exciting gift!

The Bible is “inspired of God.” (Read 2 Timothy 3:16.) But some may think,

‘The Bible was written by men, so how can it be from God?’

The Bible answers:

“Men spoke from God as they were moved [or, guided] by holy spirit.” (2 Peter 1:21)

This is similar to a businessman telling his secretary to write a letter. Who is the author of the letter? It is the businessman, not the secretary. In the same way, the Author of the Bible is God, not the men he used to write it. God guided them to write his thoughts. The Bible really is “the word of God.”​—1 Thessalonians 2:13

The Bible is

“inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

Even when it is an assembly of old writings which took more than 1,600 years to write, by writers who lived at different times it is still a today book. Even though there were different writers, all parts of the Bible agree and all books show their unity and their consistency. It doesn’t say one thing in one chapter and the opposite in another

Even being an old book, the Bible’s advice is helpful for us today. Jehovah knows how we are made, so He understands how we think and feel. He knows us better than we know ourselves, and He wants us to be happy. He knows what is good for us and what is bad for us.

Many people think that God doesn’t care about us. They feel that if God really cared, the world would be very different. We see war, hatred, and misery everywhere. People get sick, they suffer, and they die. Some wonder,

‘If God cares about us, why doesn’t he stop all this suffering?’

If you “keep on seeking,” you will find the answers and reason for the “going of things” in the Bible. (Proverbs 2:1-5) You shall be able to come to know why we encounter so man problems. But you shall also be able to come to see that the Creator of this all has foreseen solutions and has proved answers for our many questions.  What you learn from those ancient writings will give you a happier life right now and a wonderful hope for the future.

Bible offering hope and wisdom

The Most High Elohim Hashem Jehovah created the world and communicated with His creatures.

Throughout the ages His Words were notated so that next generations also could come to learn about their Creator and His Plan.

The Bible offers hope and wisdom for every challenge we face, no matter how big it seems (or how small). And, when we listen to God’s Word every day, He can completely transform our lives.

Therefore do not postpone. Do not wait for a better moment to start reading regularly the Word of God.

It is never too late to start building your Bible habit.

Relationship with this world or with God

In this world we try to build up relationships with people around us. That is not always easy. Furthermore lots of people are lured in the atractiveness to have material things, The relationship we have with our “things” is complicated. The happiness we feel from them is only temporary.

Everything we obtain here on earth can not be taken into the grave to an other world. 🌍 Everything we buy shall have its time.Like we are getting older, those things shall also getting older and often after some time not working any mor or not valuable any more.

True, lasting joy comes from choosing experiences that draw us closer to God.

We are better to connect with Him and to work on our relationship with Him. To get to know Him better He has given the world His Word. By that Word we can learn about the Divine Creator God, His Plan with mankind and the world, as well how the relationship went on with previous peoples and how He would love to see a restored relationship.

Getting our eyes onto Him shall bring us further than any man can bring us.

Biblical characters given as example

To build up a good relation with the Divine Creator, the Divine Master Maker Himself provided several people who should be an example for mankind to come closer to God.

The temptation of Adam and Eve

Because of the rebellion against their Maker, the first human beings where cast out of the Garden of Eden, but had their offspring also with the blemish of the consequences of their going wrong. From those two people, Adam and Eve, came forth several people and several nations. They were the beginning of all nations and therefore those the Bible refers to as “one flesh”, Eve coming from the same flesh (Adam’s) and being joined together again in marital/sexual union are really inseparable. They were told to multiply in such a way that the whole world would be populated. That is part of the Plan of God.
Their act of defiance, called “The Fall” by many theologians, is a real bummer because from it comes painful childbirth, weeds in our gardens, many problems, lots of pain and, ultimately, death. Moreover, Adam and Eve’s disobedience introduce fear and alienation into humankind’s formerly perfect relationships with God and one another. As evidence of this alienation, Adam and Eve’s son, Cain, murders his brother, Abel.

Building the Ark (Noah’s Preaching Scorned), by Harry Anderson

After that horrible drama it still not went right and even went so bad that God found it more than enough, and therefore would give man a possibility to return to the right path. But they did not; and therefore God brought a great flood over the whole earth.
Noah and his family where chosen to survive the deluge because Noah was

“the most righteous in his generation.”

and as such should be one of the many good examples to follow. Can you imagine what a faith in that God he could not see, he must have had, to build a giant three-decked wooden box in which he, his family, and a whole bunch of animals would have to come to live when there was going to be a massive flood that God was going to send to destroy humankind for its disobedience. For years he worked on that ark in the desert where so many passed and laughed with him, finding him a big idiot.

From the family of Noah the world of man could start again from anew. Once again God could see people not willing to follow Him but preferring to make themselves other gods and believing in them more.

Abraham Taking Isaac to Be Sacrificed – by Del Parson

In those early times of mankind, early 2nd millennium bce, we can find again a man with incredible faith in his God. Though not perfect, Avram, how he was called first, was called by God to leave his homeland in Mesopotamia to venture to an unknown Promised Land Canaan. The tales of Abraham and his wife Sarah are a roller coaster of dramatic events that repeatedly jeopardize God’s promise. The couple its faith was really tested many times. Ironically, the biggest threat to God’s promise was when God Himself commanded Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham did not hesitate to do what God asked from him, but right before Abraham was going to deliver the fatal blow to his own child, God stopped the sacrifice. As a reward for Abraham’s faith, God fulfils His promise to make Abraham’s descendants a great nation, as Isaac’s son Jacob eventually has 12 sons, whose descendants become the nation of Israel.

In Judaism the promised offspring is understood to be the Jewish people descended from Abraham’s son, Isaac, born of his wife Sarah. Similarly, in Christianity the genealogy of Jesus is traced to Isaac, and Abraham’s near-sacrifice of Isaac is seen as a foreshadowing of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. In Islam it is Ishmael, Abraham’s firstborn son, born of Hagar, who is viewed as the fulfillment of God’s promise, and the Prophet Muhammad is his descendant. {Abraham Hebrew patriarch; André Parrot, Encyclopaedia Britannica}

Moses and the Burning Bushes – by Jerry Thompson

To bring over His messages Jehovah God uses human people who live according His wishes. One of them could see how people where not nicely treated and had to be brought out of the yoke of Egyptian slavery. Raised in the royal palace by Pharaoh’s daughter and her servant, the real mother of Moses, he had to flee Egypt for killing an Egyptian who was beating an Israelite slave. God knowing the heart of man, also knew very well what went on in Moses head and why that murder happened. Though no man can see God and live, Jehovah ‘appeared’ before Moses in a burning bush and told him to return to Egypt to deliver the Israelites from their slavery. Lots of faith in God was demanded from Moses, to meet every time the pharaoh bringing over the message of God, Who would bring a plague to the country. With God’s help, Moses succeeded in his mission, bringing the Israelites to Mount Sinai, where God gave him the Law, including the Ten Commandments.

Moses wrote down also the Words of God on the scrolls or manuscripts which we know today as the Pentateuch or the Torah. It are those books which bring us the history of man, but also bring us a picture how we can build up a good relation with God or how we can destroy such a relation.

That God not only wants to have a relation with us when we are totally good, we can see in many other characters, who also did not have a faultless life. In David, for example, we may  find a character who perpetrates one of the Bible’s most heinous crimes: he committed adultery with a woman named Bathsheba, who was the wife of one of David’s most loyal soldiers, Uriah. Though to cover up the crime, David had the Hittite killed. It was after the prophet Samuel confronted David with his sin, that he came to repent. We may see that God is a forgiving One when people repent, but we should know that sometimes we shall have to bear the punishment like it was for David.
Beyond David’s royal exploits (and indiscretions), he’s credited with writing many of ancient Israel’s worship songs, which you can read in the Book of Psalms.
He was is Israel’s second and greatest king and it is out of his lineage an other prophet and king would be born and would bring salvation to the world.

Several other prophets warned people about their lifestyle and how they had to prepare for great days to come. Because many people liked worshipping multiple gods many prophets tried to have them to worship Only One True God.
In order to prove to the Israelites that the Elohim Hashem Jehovah God is the Only True God, the prophet Elijah gathered the prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel, where for the main event each deity was given a pile of wood with a bull on it. The god who could produce fire and consume the sacrifice would be called the greatest and win. Baal went first, and for half the day his prophets danced, shouted, sang, and even cut themselves in order to convince their god to answer Elijah’s challenge. When their efforts failed, Elijah prayed to Jehovah God, who immediately brought fire down from the sky to consume the sacrifice. The Israelites rededicated themselves to This Incredible God who listens to people and gives answers to people, and they killed the prophets who deceived them into worshipping Baal.

Isaiah Writes of Christ’s Birth (The Prophet Isaiah Foretells Christ’s Birth), by Harry Anderson

A later figure of importance is the man who with many of his prophecies inspired hope for eventual peace and righteousness on earth. Several of these prophecies were later understood by Christians to be predictions of Jesus, including the birth of Immanuel; the coming of the Prince of Peace, as quoted in Handel’s Messiah; and the suffering of God’s “Servant” for the sins of his people.
That prophet (Isaiah) spoke about a servant and sent one from God, the son of man, coming from the lineage or seed of king David, who can be considered as the most important prophet. It was the Nazarene Jew Jeshua, the ben haElohim or son of God, better known today as Jesus Christ.
He is the one who told many stories and parables so that people could come to know how to live and how to prepare themselves for the Great Day of Judgement that is going to come.
He is also the best example to follow, him being the way to God and the one showing and opening the door to the Kingdom of God.

All the above mentioned characters are only a few of the many presented in the Bible. In that Book of books we may find many men and women who can be brought forward as people of God, having done things we can learn from. Many of them were obedient to God’s commands throughout their life, some even risking their life, like Esther. Other’s their family story, like Hosea‘s, was a metaphor for God’s relationship with Israel.

In stories like the one of Jonah we can see how much better it is to listen to God. And that listening can be done by reading the most precious Book of books, the Bible.
With over 66 books of Scripture, 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament, covering thousands of years of history, the Bible makes mention of hundreds of people either in great detail and gives others just a passing mention. From all those spoken off we can learn, the same as we can learn by looking around us and by comparing what is written, in the Bible, about such occasions we encounter in our daily life.

How do people want to grow and come closer to the Real God

In this world we see lots of religious groups and can find lots of people they believe in god/God. But we can wonder in which god or God they believe. The majority seems to believe in an other god than the God of the Bible. That god of the Holy Books is a Singular Spirit Being, though the god of the majority of Christians is for example a three-headed god who at moments does not know everything and can not do everything. The opposite, the God of the Bible is an All-knowing God Who is able to do everything. It is a god Who cannot be seen by man, who also can do nothing to Him. The god of those so called Christians is a god who was seen by many (though they did not fall death) and could be killed by man. This should have many wondering more about that non-eternal god who even did not know when he would be coming back or when the end-times would come. That last bit though being of very importance, because than it would be too late for people to change of idea or to come to God.

Jesus told many parables where he showed how careful we have to be not to miss the boat. He warned with his stories how when not being attentive we can miss his return and even worse miss our chances to enter the small gate of the Kingdom of God. Sharp-eyed we should be looking for the signs of that times to come.

In the capitalist world people come more under pressure and with many modern tools and electronic gadgets lots of people are drawn away from the Eternal Divine Creator God. People have become convinced they themselves can create the world how they want it and can do whatever looks best for them, to make them richer. The majority came to love the world and want to be full part of that world, they think they can manage and control.

In this world not many are willing to confess with their mouth the sent one from God who came to save the world. Not many are willing to believe that man would have been taken out of the dead. they should know we are given a chance to be saved.

Romans 10:9 UKJV That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in yours heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

The majority do not want to see how Jesus is that “sent one from God” by whom we can come closer to God because he is the way to God.

John 14:6-7 UKJV Jesus says unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me. (7) If all of you had known me, all of you should have known my Father also: and from henceforth all of you know him, and have seen him.

God provided the Book of books to guide us and to allow us to grow in knowledge of God and of Christ. But not many people are interested in taking up those books and to read them. They prefer to follow their own traditions and if they want to believe and go to church, they prefer to go to a church where not to much of their free time is taken up and where they do not have to listen to much of those old writings. How more entertainment there is given in their church how more they love it. Readings from Scripture are of no interest to them.

Jonah and the giant fish in the Jami’ al-tawarikh (c. 1400), Metropolitan Museum of Art

Also concerning doing something for God and Christ not many feel called to take steps to go preaching about bad or good times and about the Kingdom of God. Some who may hear something, do more like Jonah, who instead of going to Nineveh to preach the Word, as God bade him, disliked the work, and went down to Joppa to escape from it. At all times there have been occasions when God’s servants shrank from duty or even went to teach other things than the Scriptural matters, because those things were much more liked and got more attention. That should remind us of Demas who could have been  a potential champion in the New Testament. He travelled and ministered with Paul on several missionary campaigns. At the moment he was most needed by Paul, the waffling man bolted and sought pleasure over sacrifice; temporal delight over eternal gain. Had he stayed the course in faithfulness his name would be held in high esteem today, but now we see that he was disgraced.

In this world we can see many people who say they are Christian but have taken an other god than Jesus. For many Jesus is their god and blinded by human doctrines they do not manage to hear the words of Jesus when he tells about what he is doing and by Whose Power he is doing all those incredible things.

Many people also want to reap their own deeds, like Jonah did, being filled with their own ways. Instead of playing the Jonah, man should better listen to the Words of God and to the words of His many messengers and prophets, like Moses, Abraham, Isaiah and Jesus. Unless you wish to have all the waves and the billows rolling over your head.

By listening to those words, notated in the Holy Scriptures we are given the opportunity to learn more about all those who worked for God and can come to see and learn how we too can come closer to God, like they also came very close to God.

It is by our willingness to read those ancient books, and by following those words for what they tell, and not for what human beings like theologians want people to believe there should be written, that we can come to understand how everything fits the Plan of God and how we can find the Only Real God Who is One and not two or three.

From history we should know that it is man’s pride which always has brought his fall down. From looking at man’s evolution we should learn about the rise and fall of historic civilisations and what it tells us about our own growth.

Collapse can be defined as a rapid and enduring loss of population, identity and socio-economic complexity. Public services crumble and disorder ensues as government loses control of its monopoly on violence.

Virtually all past civilisations have faced this fate. Some recovered or transformed, such as the Chinese and Egyptian. Other collapses were permanent, as was the case of Easter Island. Sometimes the cities at the epicentre of collapse are revived, as was the case with Rome. In other cases, such as the Mayan ruins, they are left abandoned as a mausoleum for future tourists. {Are We On The Road To Civilization Collapse?}

Those living in the beginning of the 21st century should come to see that they are the ones living in a time spoken about on several occasions in the Scriptures. The Book of books warns us for these times, and it is up to us to see it or to ignore it.

And while our scale may now be global, collapse appears to happen to both sprawling empires and fledgling kingdoms alike. There is no reason to believe that greater size is armour against societal dissolution. Our tightly-coupled, globalised economic system is, if anything, more likely to make crisis spread. {Are We On The Road To Civilization Collapse?}

Man should come to see that he made a mess of it all. He got the right to handle the creation and to show god that he could manage and govern it rightly. Man had doubted God His position to Master it all. Now it is getting high time we come to agree that God is the Most Righteous to govern the universe.

People became increasingly specialised but also very disconnected from the production of food and basic goods. They thought they could play for God, and many did feel as if they were  god. There disrespect for God’s creation made that they even did not come to see how they were destroying their own universe.

Think of civilisation as a poorly-built ladder. As you climb, each step that you used falls away. A fall from a height of just a few rungs is fine. Yet the higher you climb, the larger the fall. Eventually, once you reach a sufficient height, any drop from the ladder is fatal. {Are We On The Road To Civilization Collapse?}

Many passed the Jacob’s ladder and most people got blinded by the many theories from scientists and theologians, instead of listening to the Words written down in the Book of books and showing proper respect for the divine Creator and His creation.

Reflecting about how everything came into being and how so many things went wrong, showing a willingness to listen to what is written in the bible, people can come to know the Only One True God. And that is what we all should do urgently!

It is God’s Will that each individual shows were his or her heart wants to be and if he or she is willing to accept the Eternal Elohim Hashem Jehovah as the Only One true God.

When there is a relationship with God there is a possibility to grow

When we are looking for some one for having a good or close relationship with, we can assure you the best one to have a good relationship with is the Most High Divine Creator God Who made it possible for you to be here in the first place.

Having a relationship with Him is a requirement for each living soul (human being). The divine Maker of all things wants His creatures to be connected with Him and to have a loving relationship with them as a Father – son relationship, or even more or stronger.

Many people may feel very lonely in this world. Many may also feel very empty.

Emptiness in our heart is the lack of fulfilment in being a set apart or sacred being in the universe. Normally each human being is, from the beginning of times, written in the Book of Life and Death. In that book are all the names of those who shall live and die and of those who shall be able to live again after they died, but also of those who shall have to face their second death after they were taken out of the dead to come before the judgement stool of the returned Jesus Christ.

In this world we are placed and have to find ways to live. We can feel very bad in it or be very happy in it. Though it must be said that there are people whatever they try to do they do not seem to find happiness nor luck or find success in what they are trying to fulfil.

You should know when you feel empty, when you feel a great big void like a very deep well or big hole, then it probably is that there is not yet that light which is available for you too.
You may think there is nothing that can fill that hole, but there really is. There is even such Supreme Being that on top of the hole can build a mountain so high that you shall be able to look down at this terrible word and wonder why you did not see it earlier or did not find Him earlier.

It is never too late to go for Him. Go and find the One Who is the Only One Who is much stronger and grater than any man on this earth or any being in the universe.

Though no man can see Him, He is the Most Powerful, the Mightiest of all. He is also the One Who can give everything you need: fulfilled hope and luck.

If you feel emptiness in your soul He is the One to look for. He is the One Who makes it possible to be found.
But to find Him one must do something.
One has to be willing to find God and therefore to open the mind and heart and let Him to come into the personal being.
One has to let Him fill the heart with the warmth and knowledge of His Word.

Let Him fill your heart and soul, i.e. your whole being, and you shall become richer and richer (in spirit) by the day.

When there is a God is it possible to relate to Him

When wondered about a godhead and having come to the conclusion that there must be a Divine Creator or Supreme Being that surpasses all human and animal beings, we may question if it is possible for us to have a relationship with that Higher Being.

What does it take to begin a relationship with God?

With people around us we may have an idea how we can start a relationship with them, but what about God?

Do we have to wait until something serious happens in our life? Many do that, but is that the right way? Do they not miss a lot because they too late became in a relationship with their God?

Is it necessary to enjoy yourself a lot or to get in trance to come closer to that god or the God?

Or should we spend more time to ourselves or to taking part in religious activities? Or is it necessary to devote yourself to unselfish religious deeds?

Do we first have to become a better person, whatever that might entail, so that God will accept us?

We can ask a thousand questions and look for many answers. We might go looking in lots of books and places to find answers. Though we should know we do not have to go far. God has made it very clear in the Bible how we can know Him. In God His Word, the Bible, is explained what happened to mankind, how the relationship was broken and how the relationship was and can be restored.

Does that God hide or is it our pride which makes that we do not want to see and know Him?

Should we have to ask Him first a proof of His identity? do we not need some certification or a security that we do have to do with God? Do we need His sign and his reassurance first before we can come to Him? Should we not know first of all that we are speaking with the right person?

Is it in response to a power displayed, that we should start looking for a relationship with God?

In the following articles you might find why it is necessary to build a relationship with God and how you can personally begin such a relationship with God, right now…
