"2021GOD CHALLENGE" AUDIO BLOG
(or read only below)
As I write these blogs, which represent revelations God has given me over the past year, I realize God's theme throughout: the "Lukewarm CHRISTian."
And, along those lines, at the end of December, God put on my heart that 2021 was, indeed, not just another year, which happens to be the title of my last blog, but 2021 was the year that America and the World began to wake up and realize that there is only ONE GOD, who can save us, even with Eternal Life. So, came the God-inspired 2021GOD Challenge! How to Learn God's Plan for Your Life, in three easy steps.
How To: (Must be done every day, to achieve and maintain results!)
1. Live Your Life Now by the Standards of God's Kingdom, and Follow God's Laws and Commandments:
Accept with all your heart and all your mind and all your soul that Jesus Christ is God's only begotten son, who died on the cross, and rose again, for forgiveness of your sins.
Scripture tells us about Jesus:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16;
"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him." 1 Thessalonians 4:14
And Scripture tells us about God's Laws and Commandments:
2 "I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
13 Thou shalt not kill.
14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
15 Thou shalt not steal.
16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's."
In addition to the Ten Commandments, we have the fruit of the Spirit as a guide for Godly Living:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."
And, finally, Jesus had two of His own Commandments:
36 "Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
2. Pray to God frequently throughout the day, ask for discernment (understanding) of His Word and His Plan for your Life. Prayers do not have to be elaborate. God knows our hearts:
"I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings." Jeremiah 17:10
And, God knows what we need before we know we need it:
"Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him." Matthew 6:8
If you are short on words, simply pray the Lord's Prayer, as given to us by Jesus:
9 "After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen."
3. Read the Bible (at least three chapters per day). You will get as much from God as you give Him, so the more the better. What version you read is not as important as just reading it. Switch between your preferred version, like King James Bible, and an easy-to-read version, or a study Bible, to help with difficult passages.
That is it! It is THAT easy.
God's gifts of the Spirit come in differing forms: dreams, visions, knowledge, talents, prophesying, healing, and more:
1 Corinthians 12:4-11
4 "Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will."
As I have repeated, and will probably repeat again, because God has made it clear to me, we are coming into a Spiritual Revival / Spiritual Revolution. No one will be able to deny GOD's Work.
Find out if the Holy Spirit has gifts for you, and or God's Plan for your Life. Do not miss out! What do you have to lose?
Our Prayer for You Today:
Father, thank You for Your Word which is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path and thank You Father, for the Lord Jesus Christ, the living Word made flesh, Who has life in Himself and is the light of the world in Whom is no darkness at all.
Lord, more than anything else, I desire to bathe in that light of the Lord Jesus so that the light of His love and grace may shine through me to others, especially at those times when the circumstances of life seem to be particularly gloomy and dark.
Father, You have called us to be lights in the world, reflecting the glory and light of Christ and I pray that I may become His reflection, so that men may see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven.
Lord, I know that this requires me to decrease to nothing so that He may increase in everything and become all in all. Father, I pray that whatever it takes, that You would purge out anything that diminishes the light and love of Christ in me, so that Jesus is lifted up high in my heart and life, to your praise and glory. In Jesus' name,
Hallelujah! Praise God! Amen!
