Welcome to the Journey

Journey Onward

The similarities between the First Century Believers and today’s Believers are truly remarkable, and the major reason is simply human nature. Our human nature has not become any more accepting to the Blessed Holy Spirit then it was millennia ago. The reluctance of  human nature to accept the Spirit of God has nothing to do with the supernatural, plenty of people would rather believe in ghosts, intelligent life from other planets, human ability to defy nature. What the human nature has so much trouble with is humility and obedience. Compile that with an unseen God and that is like asking the impossible.

“Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.”—Voltaire

Humankind readily accepts the supernatural as long as there is immediate benefit to the believer. As well as being rebellious, we are also extremely selfish and if we see no immediate accessible rainbow at the end of our pot of gold–forget it. That is why more often than not people find God through turmoil and tragedy. In the book of Hebrews there is a perfect definition of Faith: Hebrews 11:1 – “Now faith is the assurance of hope, the conviction of things not seen”  (NASB).  Contrary to what most modern churches are promising, God offers no tangible guarantees that a person can bank on upfront.

John 6:28-29

You cannot come to God without first believing that He is there. Then, once you begin developing a relationship with God you begin to feel His presence, eventually an Agape Love overtakes your senses and you then become certain that God exists! That is why the Bible speaks of God’s people as being peculiar. Once one reaches this place it becomes time to begin life all over again! One must learn everything over again according to the Spiritual world. That is if one desires to become a disciple of Y’shua Messiah and walk in His footsteps; otherwise, one may just believe there is a God and His Son, while never truly attempting to become one with that Son.

It is definitely one long distant journey that we would not trade for anything!
