Words of God to stand and to be followed and to believe

The Aleppo Codex is a medieval manuscript of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh), associated with Rabbi Aaron Ben Asher. The Masoretic scholars wrote it in the early 10th century, probably in Tiberias, Israel. It is in book form and contains the vowel points and grammar points (nikkudot) that specify the pronunciation of the ancient Hebrew letters to preserve the chanting tradition. It is perhaps the most historically important Hebrew manuscript in existence. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

From the beginning of times Words were given to man declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, that His counsel shall stand, and all of what He likes shall come into being. He has given His advice and the thoughts of His heart, for all generations to learn from it and to get more wisdom.

Man may be slow of mouth but the Most High is the One Who let others speak in His Name. It is His Spirit Which lifted up several men of God, and the hand of יהוה Jehovah the Elohim was strong upon them (Ezekiel 3:14)

Even the most known sent one from God, whom many take as their god, did not use his own words, which he would have done when he is God. Today there are still several people who do not believe what Jesus said that he could not do anything without his heavenly Father Whose words Jesus brought to mankind and spoke to his disciples. (John 5:17-36; 14:10,28)

That Word written down for mankind was spoken so man could take it as a harness, and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word not of human origin but breathed by יהוה Jehovah God for our edification, profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that those who love God may be children of God completed, thoroughly equipped for every good work (Ephesians 6:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

1 Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the anointed of the Elohim of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, 2 The Spirit of יהוה spake by me, and his word was in my tongue. 3 The Elohim of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of Elohim. 4 And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain. 5 Although my house be not so with El; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow.

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of יהוה spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

For this cause also thank we יהוה without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of יהוה which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of יהוה, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

A Start for looking at the unseen and the treasure to look forward to

Man can not see God and live (Exodus 10:28; 33:20) but the unseen God wants to connect to His creatures and we are demanded to pray to the unseen God, our Father Who is also the heavenly Father of Jesus, Abraham and many others who worshipped Only One True God, the God of Israel.

For man it is very difficult to believe in something what can not be seen. But the unseen is eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18) and man should know that there in the unseen is the Most High treasure.

Exodus 10:28 (RNKJV)
28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.

Exodus 33:20 (RNKJV)
20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

2 Corinthians 4:18  (RNKJV)
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Most people have their eyes on the things we can see. They are often blinded by all the material this world can offer them. Materialism is killing many people on this earth in this system of things. instead of looking for perishable things we better look for the imperishable because all things we see have a limit of existence.

Genesis 6:17  (RNKJV)
And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

Job 4:20  (RNKJV)
They are destroyed from morning to evening: they perish for ever without any regarding it.

Jeremiah 6:21  (RNKJV)
Therefore thus saith יהוה, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.

Luke 13:3 (RNKJV)
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

Colossians 2:22  (RNKJV)
Which all are to perish with the using;) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

The world shall have to come to know that those who prefer the perishable goods could loose a much more interesting future with the imperishable. All of perishable seed, man shall have to work at his character making it set-apart, becoming a child of the seed God has sent forth so that believers in God will be judged and receive approval to enter the Kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 15:51-58 (RNKJV)
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to יהוה, which giveth us the victory through our Master Yahushua the Messiah. 58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of יהוה, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in Him.

In this world we often have to work very hard and some may think it is all for nothing. For some of them there also may never seem an end to it. But for those who believe in God and what He said there is hope and they look forward to enormous good prospects.

In case you are looking for a better life you should better look first for the One Who can give you a much better life than this perishable one.

You also may be sure that if you are looking for God, God will find you.

Ignatius of Loyola or Mother Teresa would have likewise believed that even as we are looking, and even when we mostly feel lost, God is somehow finding us, whether or not it feels that way to us. Ignatius believed (as I do) that when we set ourselves toward some worthy purpose that transcends our meager strength, we tap into a source of meaning, strength, peace, and courage that is beyond us. We come to realize, in a graced moment, that we are called to some great purpose, that we cannot do it on our own, but that we don’t have to do it on our own. That’s why Ignatius urges, in one after another of his Spiritual Exercises, that we speak to Jesus “in the way one friend speaks to another.” – {If you are looking for God God will find you}

When you start looking for God you have to open your mind and be willing to search the Scriptures, the set-apart Book of books, God has given the world to edify. Those words written down in His Name shall shed light on this world and on what to come. Written to whom it is about to be reckoned those 66 books put together are all connected with each other and should be taken as one unit. All the words in it shall show you the true face of Jehovah Who is the God Almighty, Host of hosts, greater than all gods and King above all kings. The Bible shall also show you who is who and bring you the right way to look for Christ, who is the Way to God.

By that Nazarene man it will be possible to figuratively see God, because he has shown God. At this website we also hope we shall be able to show you Who God is and What He is for us and the world.

We are pleased you found this site and do hope we shall be able to coach you along your way in your quest to God.

Looking forward to finish the race together in the near future.

Wishing you good luck and a good start.
