Communication wanted

To have a good working relation there is a need of good communication. For having some good communication one has to make free some time . Without willing to give time to communication, there is no chance in having the communication nor the relationship working.

We as human beings are very limited, though often we can do much more than we think. We can realise much more if we want. But the will has to be there. The will to do, to think and to realise.

As human beings we are born, knowing nothing, having to learn everything. For those who think we are reincarnations, they should wonder why we than not know of our previous life and can not take all the previous experiences with us in that new life. But when growing up we often have some inner feeling about Something that was before us. We often can not place it and lots of people are in a way annoyed by it. Because they feel it is about a Supreme Being that is much stronger than they and to whom they have to take responsibilities. They also hear people, like us, who say that all human beings are created in that Being Its image. And all human beings being created in the image of God we all have some parts, call it DNA, from Him in us. We all have something different from the likeness of God. And all people at one time hear that call and feel that sense of connection with that Source of life, without Whom we could not live.

That Source of life wants us to communicate with His creation and as living creatures it is given in us to look for a communication with Him. The Life Giver  wanting to communicate with us, has made this possible, “For prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”

The Divine Creator wants us to be in harmony with His mind and calls out into the world. He has given His infallible Word to the whole world so that all people can get to know Him and shall come to see how they have to build up a good communication with Him. Our Heavenly Father obviously expects us to read this given word, which is there to edify and to help us throughout life. That Book of books contains truths that give enlightenment. It is unlike any other book — it contains loving instruction from God.

1 Thessalonians 2:3 (NRKJV): 3 For our exhortation was not of deceit, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:

1 Thessalonians 4:1 (NRKJV): 1 Thessalonians 4 1 Furthermore then we beseech you, brethren, and exhort you by the Master Yahushua {Jeshua}, that as ye have received of us how ye ought to walk and to please יהוה {Jehovah}, so ye would abound more and more.

In this world there are loads of misconceptions that dominate the lives of millions. In case they would listen more and better to the Words written in the Holy Scriptures they would more easily see the Truth. But problem by man is that they often prefer to keep to human traditions and place human writings and human dogma‘s higher than Biblical dogma‘s. One reason that many people think the Bible has little to offer is because religion has misrepresented the Bible and its teachings.
When we gain Bible knowledge we shall see that we can be liberated from those wrong ideas several organised churches enforced on their followers, and can come to clear notion, making it all more comprehensible and easier to follow.

Unlike human oracles, God truly knows the future; everything He says and His oracles always comes true. In those old books we can find many prophesies which already came true and some which still have to happen. In the knowledge that all previous predictions became a reality we can be sure the next ones also shall happen, because in the Bible we find the greatest proof that the Bible really is from God and is its perfect record in foretelling the future.

The Best-seller of all times is given by the All Mighty to be used regularly. In fact, we are to meditate upon it day and night. It is a love letter, a message He caused to be written and preserved for our learning and our salvation. The Almighty Lord God had the Bible written so that people everywhere could learn the truth about Him and could find the way to come closer to Him. Billions of copies have been printed. It has been translated, in whole or in part, into over 2,500 languages. Just about everybody can read the truth about God in his or her own language.

Having the possibility to receive the love-letters of our Maker, we should in addition to believe that there is a God Who is mightier than all other gods, we must trust and have faith in This God of gods, Who is Host of hosts. The Bible points out:

Hebrews 11:6 (RNKJV): 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to יהוה {Jehovah} must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Believing that God is “the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him” means that God is not aloof and uncaring. Rather, as a caring God, He helps those earnestly seeking Him to come to know Him, and He rewards them.

From the Holy Scriptures, from the old stone tablets and parchments, we get to know that God’s name is Jehovah. Those very old writings also reveal His purposes, views, and feelings, as well as His dealings with humans so that we can come to know Him accurately.

Right from the start, the Bible shows clearly what God’s purpose was in creating humans. In its first book, Genesis, the Bible relates:

“Genesis 1:27-28 (RNKJV): 27 So Elohim created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And Elohim blessed them, and Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

English: Bible of Lilienfeld
The first human beings in the Garden of Eden depicted on the Bible of Lilienfeld (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

God placed the first human pair he created, Adam and Eve, in a peaceful and happy garden, called the garden of Eden. They enjoyed ideal living conditions and meaningful work. As time passed, they were to bring forth perfect children. Not only would they not grow old and die but they would enjoy the company of their offspring, and together they would subdue the earth and turn it into a paradise in which a perfect human race could enjoy forever all the blessings that God provides. That, in brief, was God’s original purpose regarding mankind and the earth.

Isaiah 45:18 (RNKJV): 18 For thus saith יהוה {Jehovah} that created the heavens; Elohim himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am יהוה {Jehovah}; and there is none else.

Does not all of this show that Jehovah is a loving, merciful, kind, and generous God? Is it not most satisfying and happifying to worship and to have faith in such a God?

Psalms 36:9 (RNKJV): 9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

Psalms 103:12-14 (RNKJV): 12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. 13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so יהוה pitieth them that fear him. 14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

Revelation 4:11 (RNKJV): 11 Thou art worthy, O יהוה, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

In this system of things, this time-period, there are more and more people who are not interested in God or His Plan. They should know that they like the first man take distance from God, and not the other way round. When they do not want to know about the Creator of all things, and when they do not want to read the Bible, they shall stay on their own, having to solve everything themselves. In such circumstances they also shall not be able to build up a good relationship with the Supreme Being.
How can such a person be in harmony with the mind of God when he asks for things? First of all, he has not shown respect for God by making it a priority to read His word. And secondly, a spiritual mind cannot be developed if it is not in contact with the mind of God, and the only way that can happen is by hearing His word. Paul tells us,

Romans 10:17 (RNKJV): 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of יהוה.

Hebrews 11:1 (RNKJV): Hebrews 11 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:6 (RNKJV): 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to יהוה must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

When looking for God or wanting to have a good relationship with Him we first of all need to believe that He exists and should have faith in Him. Such faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, and can only grow when we do feed it regularly with God His Word.

There are many people who are quite willing to pray and ask God for all the things they want, but they never have time to read the Bible to learn what God wants to tell His children. Those people are simply praying with themselves, not to God, and their prayers are an abomination to Him. We do have to be sound in mind and be vigilant with a view to prayers, giving us to some one higher than man, surrendering in all circumstances, to Him the Most High.

Solomon made a startling statement that will surprise a great many people who do not regularly read their Bible. He tells us,

Proverbs 28:9 (RNKJV): 9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

Today there are many people who turn away from the truth.  There are also lots of people who say they are a Christian, but do not believe the words of the man who says his heavenly Father is greater than him, nor believe the God who says Jesus is His only begotten son. They prefer to take Jesus as their god and not to follow his teachings. They also do not bother to read the Bible? But as we can see from the above verse, such an attitude in life is not pleasing God and when such people pray not willing to make time to read the Bible, their prayer is an abomination.

When willing to come to a relation with God and with His creatures we ourselves have to open up ourselves to God and His creatures. Then we do have to make time to read God’s Word and to make a sincere conversation with the Elohim Adonai the Mar-Yah God of gods, the Hashem השם, Jehovhah Who shows His wonderworks. Looking for a good relationship with the Most High we do not have to be afraid of man around us.

We have the Ransomed of Jehovah who learned his followers to pray. In Jesus the begotten son of God we must trust and accept him as our saviour, the messiah or anointed-one. Him we should trust as the mediator between God and man.  In his name we should ask God for that what we need and falls in the Wishes of God. Like Jesus did not do his own will, which he would have done when he is God, we also should want to do God’s Will.

When prepared to give yourself to God, you may start asking him for guidance and He will provide it. Make sure that you also get a balance of prayer and reading His Word so that the dialogue is truly two-sided. When we seek God’s help, we should search the scriptures for passages relating to our problem, prayerfully seeking guidance from His word. We can meditate on memorized portions of scripture when driving or waiting.

Balancing our prayers with scriptural meditation will help us to heed the instructions to,

Ecclesiastes 5:2 (RNKJV): 2 Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before Elohim: for Elohim is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.

We should  let not the Elohim יהוה {Jehovah} be angry by trying to be different in front of Him. We should show the credence that we have in Him

1 John 5:14 (RNKJV):  14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:

He knowing our hearts can see through us;

1 Samuel 16:7 (RNKJV): 7 But יהוה said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for יהוה seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but יהוה looketh on the heart.

Therefore we should be willing to let Him mould us, so that we can be made anew, to become as reborn. When we do have not enough knowledge we always should ask Him to give us enough wisdom to get to know Him better.

James 1:5 (RNKJV): 5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of יהוה, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Prayer is an awe-inspiring privilege, an opportunity to approach the Creator of all the earth, an honour we should not treat casually.

To develop the faith without which it is impossible to please God and have our prayers heard, we need to hear the word of God.

Like the first followers of Christ did do the works Jesus asked of them, we should like them read the Bible regularly and pray to God so that we may get a strong faith according God’s Will and not according what most people would like to see.

Colossians 4:12 (RNKJV): 12 Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of the Messiah, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of יהוה.

Prayer is a wonderful blessing, but we should not keep it only to ourselves for ourselves.  We also should pray in each other’s behalf. By our prayers we may become energised, because prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

James 5:16 (RNKJV): 16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Let us get our priorities straight and listen to God. And then let us be thankful He will hear our prayers. And let us pray that we may build up a good relationship with Him and His creatures.
