HOW GOD RELATES WITH MAN
What do you know about the almighty God? How does He function and relate with his children? Do you know God don’t attend to some of our appeals guru Deseye Subai will provide answers to these questions and much more…
WHO IS THE ALMIGHTY GOD?
My brother man and sister woman, I urge you to first think of the Almighty God as the creator of all things, visible and invisible, then as the ultimate controller of the visible and invisible universes and lastly as the everlasting father. Are you one of those skeptical about the existence of the Almighty God? Do you want proof? Brother men indulging in scientific research often aver, there is no effect without a cause. I urge you to examine your environment, search out the cause of whatever is not the work of a human being, be rest assured common sense and logic will provide the answer to your question. As you are well aware, planet earth exist, therefore it has a cause.
Of a truth I tell you, we are not alone aside planet earth, there are many universes occupied by creatures of the Almighty God. On planet earth, the Almighty God is known by different names in different countries of the world. Is that all? No that is not all. The Almighty God is equally known by different names in different invisible universes occupied by many different types of creatures created by the Almighty God. Of a truth, I tell you, the different names attributed to the Almighty God in different universes, very much depends on the ideas of the different creatures of the Almighty God residing in them. I want to make clearer, the Almighty God has never revealed himself by the name he has only revealed himself by nature.
On planet earth, most of us believe I use the word most of us because I know that in our midst exist people who do not believe in the existence of God. Most human beings believe that they are the children of God, therefore it is only natural that we call him our heavenly father.
Genesis 1:27… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created He them.
No doubt we all are children of God but that notwithstanding I urge you not to think that the Almighty God has the physical appearance of a human being because we have been told mortals are created in God’s image. The truth is, the Almighty God’s is light, which is un-approachable by a human being. Let me put it in another way, lower groups of spiritual beings cannot approach the divine presence of God let alone human beings, I regret the impossible. My brother man and sister woman, the Almighty God possess the ultimate power to know all things therefore, he knows you in and out, front and back he is well acquainted with all your ways and he understands all your contemplations, therefore the Almighty God is subjected to what human beings term SURPRISE.
WORSHIP OF THE SUPREME BEING
JOHN 4:24… God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and truth)
It is interesting to note, human beings and other invisible spiritual beings in other worlds are free to worship or not worship the Almighty God. The Almighty God compels no one against his or her will to worship him. He has the power to do that, but the Almighty God will do no such thing. Human beings must of themselves, in their own hearts, recognize, love and most importantly of their own freewill worship our everlasting father.
GOD’S PRESENCE IN HUMAN AFFAIRS
Now, pertaining to God’s presence in human affairs. The Almighty God does not directly deal with human beings, he does not directly exercise his infinite powers on us rather he prefers to go through subordinate personalities. Earthly parents always complain about their children, why? They don’t always have their ways in their affairs, that’s why. In the same vein, the Almighty God may not always have his way in the affairs of brother men and sister women.
THE WAY GOD FUNCTIONS
Our everlasting father function through laws. The Almighty God regulates all the affairs of planet earth and the invisible universes and the activities of all the creatures residing in them through laws. It is interesting to note on planet earth the activities of mortals are regulated by physical laws created by legislators but there is a huge difference between laws created by a human being and laws created by the everlasting father. The laws created by the former are imperfect, therefore subject to review however the laws created by the latter are perfect, everlasting and unchangeable. Human laws are often altered or obliterated to reflect the changing social, political and economic conditions in human society. Of course, as human beings, we are obliged to change our laws because we are not perfect. Of a truth I tell you, there exist natural and cosmic laws of the Almighty God. I want to make clearer natural laws of God tells us what we should do and should not do and most of us are suffering today because we do not adhere to the laws of nature. I want you to bear in mind the laws of God are inscribed in your conscience. You carry the laws of God in your conscience, that’s why inwardly you feel good when you are doing the right thing and you feel bad when you are doing the wrong thing. Let me straightway commence shedding light on the divine laws of our everlasting father.
THE LAW OF LABOR
Every morning, the majority of people must go out of their homes to strive to raise money to pay their bills or fulfill their individual ambitions in life. In the night the majority of people must return to their homes to sleep and in the morning of the next day, they must continue toiling. I want to make clearer the necessity of labor is a law of nature. Labor is imposed on human beings by the Almighty God as a means of developing their intelligence. It is not possible to develop one’s intelligence without labor. I want you to bear in mind, labor is part of our material nature, some sort of expiation and development of intelligence. It is interesting to note the spirit within you equally labors like your physical body. Lastly, pertaining to the limitation of labor? Are we supposed to work and work without ceasing? Well, everything depends on the limit of your strength. Human beings are at liberty to decide when to start and when stop toiling.
THE LAW OF DESTRUCTION
My brother man and sister woman, generally human beings despise destructive calamities but we cannot put an end to it because it is a law of God. Intermittently the Almighty God must visit mankind with destructive calamities so that we can advance more rapidly. Many of you might ask, could not the Almighty God employ other methods than visiting mankind with destructive calamities? I presume it is obvious to each of us human beings learn quickly only through the hard way. Through the knowledge of good and evil, we are supposed to always strive to do what is right and shun evil but the majority of us derive pleasure doing evil things always, therefore intermittently, it is right and proper for the Almighty God to reprimand our pride and most importantly make us feel our weakness. The enormous destructions, losses and upsetting’s that emanate from natural disasters will make us realize our weakness and compel us to strive to do what is right in the sight of God. In summation, destructive calamities will enable us to achieve in a few years what we would otherwise have taken several years or centuries to accomplish. Destructive calamities which is a law of God often gives birth to regeneration, transformation and general improvement of human beings.
THE LAW OF ADORATION
The law of adoration, the law of worshipping the everlasting father. As you are well aware in society, there are many overt methods of worshipping God, some are good, some are preposterous and some are misleading. To be honest with you, I am not interested in the most acceptable external form of worship, therefore I will not be talking about that but I want to make clearer, you can only reach the Almighty God through the door of your heart, the truest worship takes place in your heart and nowhere else. My brother man and sister woman must bear in mind the Almighty God prefers mortals who worship him from the heart, with sincerity and by doing what is right and staying aloof from evil. Let me put it in another way if you claim to be a worshipper of the living God and you are proud, envious, ambitious and jealous, and you are so unforgiving, it simply means, you are a worshipper with the lips only.
Of a truth, I tell you, social life is a law of God. The Almighty God gave us the faculty of speech and other faculties necessary for human beings to socialize. We need each other to complete each other and that can only be possible through social union.
In the same vein, I want to make clearer, the instinct of self-preservation is a law of nature. We are imperfect souls temporarily clothed in a human body. Life on planet earth is a necessity for the improvement of imperfect souls. That’s why the Almighty God has given each of us the instinct of self-preservation, the intent desire to live and any cost, any fight against untimely death.
THE LAW OF REPRODUCTION
It is interesting to note in the Holy Bible the Almighty God said go and multiply. That clearly shows the reproduction of living beings is a law of nature. My brother man and sister woman, without reproduction planet earth, will certainly perish. I have convinced myself this great lesson will be incomplete if I don’t shed light on some of the cosmic laws of the Almighty God. Of a truth, I tell you, some of these laws are quite controversial, misunderstood and misinterpreted.
THE LAW OF KARMA
One of the most controversial cosmic law is the law of karma. Well, controversial or not, that which is great or true shall continue to make itself known no matter how loud is the glamour of denial. There is no time in any age when the cosmic law of karma has ever ceased to exist and any act seeking to modify, suppress or annihilate the great law will amount to nihility. It is interesting to note, the Holy Bible contains quite a number of interesting passages. Some assure sinners of forgiveness and becoming a new creature if they sincerely repent and forsake their old ways. At the same time, certain biblical passages talk about God is not mocked, reaping moment must surely come, one jot or tittle, which means the smallest part of the law cannot be destroyed. This expression is telling mankind that the law will never be destroyed until all is fulfilled. I will show you.
PASSAGES OF FORGIVENESS
1 JOHN 1:9 IF WE CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST AND WILL FORGIVE US OUR SINS AND PURIFY US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS
ACTS 3:19 REPENT, THEN AND TURN TO GOD, SO THAT YOUR SINS MAY BE WIPED OUT, THAT TIMES OF REFRESHING MAY COME FROM THE LORD.
ISAIAH 1:18 COME NOW, LET US SETTLE THE MATTER, SAYS THE LORD THOUGH YOUR SINS ARE LIKE SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE AS WHITE AS SNOW, THOUGH THEY ARE RED AS CRIMSON, THEY SHALL BE LIKE WOOL.
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 THEREFORE, IF ANYONE IS IN CHRIST, THE NEW CREATION HAS COME. THE OLD HAS GONE, THE NEW IS HERE.
HEBREWS 10:17 THEN HE ADDS, THEIR SINS AND LAWLESS ACT I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.
PASSAGES OF KARMA
MATTHEW 5:18 FOR VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, TILL HEAVEN AND EARTH PASS, ONE JOT OR ONE TITTLE SHALL IN NO WISE PASS FROM THE LAW, TILL ALL BE FULFILLED.
Galatians 6:7 BE NOT DECEIVED, GOD IS NOT MOCKED. FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP.
Quite revealing very educational. Yes, I believe, I mean really believe the Almighty God forgives sin but I equally know that certain sins must be atoned for Remorsefulness. Prayers and tears only will not suffice for that will amount to a mockery of God. Of a truth I tell you, I am aware of a recent tragic event that took place in Lagos. Assassins wiped out an entire family of six, the father was shot in the neck and stomach. His wife, sons, and daughters equally shot and killed. Also their eight-month-old baby shot in the stomach. An innocent eight-month-old baby equally shot and killed. So months later, you except the assassins to go to a confession and prayer center and obtain forgiveness of sins and become a new creature? Right? Wrong. The law of karma must ensure that the assassins must receive back the exact results of their actions. As I speak, I know that countless people are reborn into environments where they meet again people they have wronged and they must suffer in a certain way until all wrongs have been put right. It appears most people are yet to realize the Almighty God is just and righteous. The Almighty God is not corrupt therefore he cannot accept gifts from you which will prevent him from passing the right judgment. After doing terrible things, most of us make futile childish appeals to the Almighty God, we want the Almighty God to modify his unchangeable laws so that we can avoid the just consequences which we truly deserve. I regret the impossible. Even though I know that divine justice is always tempered with mercy, the law of karma popularly termed sowing and reaping must ensure we receive back the exact results of our actions. Always bear in mind we often orchestrate most of the problems confronting us. These problems become our karma. Karma is like a weapon, weapons aren’t evil. Everything depends on the user of the weapon.
WHY HUMAN PROBLEMS ARE UNAVOIDABLE
As human beings, we always pray to Almighty God to help us get rid of our human troubles, yet most of our problems refuse to go away. If we had our way, we would have preferred riches and trouble-free life. I want to make clearer, human beings are evolutionary creatures. We are imperfect beings, therefore, human troubles are inevitable. Human troubles often help us to develop certain qualities. Now hear this, do you desire courage and strength of character? You need to grow up in an environment where you need to battle with hardships and disappointments. Do you crave to develop faith power? Then you need to be in a situation where your mind will find itself in that troublesome predicament where it ever knows less than it can believe. In the same vein, the presence of truth and falsehood, betrayals, desertion, pains and suffering, insecurities, recurrent uncertainties, etc. enable us to develop certain qualities. My brother man and sister woman, I want you to bear in mind, human wisdom grows out of trials and errors of human experience. There are many strange things, you might say, almost too strange for one to believe but because one is ignorant about them does not mean they are not real.
