WHY DID GOD ALLOW THIS?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/why-did-god-allow-this/
QUESTION:    Thank you for your website. It is truly a blessing. A question on something I have always wondered. Since God is all knowing, past, present, future, the alpha and omega – this means he already knew Satan would fall from heaven, challenge his deity, bring evil upon mankind, etc. Why would God allow this to happen to all of his creation including us humans?
ANSWER:    God “allowed” this to happen because He allowed mankind to have the freedom of choice. It was Adam and Eve who chose to disobey God’s clear instructions. Even though God told them what the consequences of disobedience would be, they chose to believe Satan instead. You can’t have the freedom to choose unless you’re willing to accept the consequences of your choices. None of Satan’s deceptions can work without our cooperation.
Of course, God knew in advance what the outcome of man’s choice would be. But that doesn’t mean He wanted it to happen or that He made it happen. It’s a sign of our sin nature that we demand the right to make our own choices and then want to blame someone else if things don’t work out, even when that someone else turns out to be God Himself.
Be thankful that God doesn’t leave us to suffer the consequences of our choices forever. He provided a Redeemer to pay the penalty that’s due to us. In this way, if we choose to, we can be restored and live eternally with him. But Satan will go to the Lake of Fire to be tormented forever (Rev. 20:10). There’s no redemption for him.

WHY DOES GOD ALLOW THIS?

https://gracethrufaith.com/ask-a-bible-teacher/why-does-god-allow-this-4/
QUESTION:    Why does God allow different religions and allow people to be deceived by them when there is only the one way to God, and that is through Jesus ? If you are born and indoctrinated into a false religion it would be very hard to know the truth and accordingly they would not get the opportunity to receive salvation, which seems unfair.
ANSWER:    In the beginning there was only one “religion” and all mankind worshiped God. He did not “allow” these other religions. Since the fall of man Satan has been in control of the world (1 John 5:19). It was Satan who influenced the minds of rebellious men and drew them away from God.
In John 14:30 Jesus called him the prince of this world, and in 2 Cor. 4:3-4 Paul said he’s the god of this age, who blinds the minds of unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the Gospel.
Then Paul said, “But God , who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness’ has made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 cor. 4:6). And in 2 Thes. 2:10 he said those who perish do so because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. So the light is there for all to see. Only those who refuse to see can be blinded.
Jesus promised that everyone who seeks Him will find Him (Matt. 7:7-8). He could say that because the light of God is in every heart. The fact that so many have been and are being saved from places where the knowledge of the gospel is forbidden on pain of death bears witness to the truth of His promise.

PALESTINIANS: “BURN THE JEWS!”

by Bassam Tawil – https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12467/palestinians-burn-the-jews
The Palestinians, who have been sending flaming kites from the Gaza Strip into Israel the past few weeks, say that their real goal is to “burn the Jews” and destroy Israel. They see the kites as a new weapon to achieve their goal. They are disappointed, they say, that no Jew has been hurt yet as a result of the fires triggered by the flaming kites.
The kites have ignited dozens of fires in Israeli fields and forests adjacent to the border with the Gaza Strip, much to the satisfaction of the Palestinians and their supporters in the Arab and Islamic countries, who took to various social media platforms to celebrate the “success” of the Palestinian terror kites.
Firefighters and soldiers attempt to extinguish a fire in a wheat field in Nahal Oz, Israel, after it was set alight by Palestinians who sent firebombs attached to kites across the border from Gaza, on May 15, 2018.
The same Palestinians who are openly stating that the flaming kites are aimed at “burning the Jews” and eliminating Israel are also arguing that this new form of terrorism is in the context a “peaceful and nonviolent protest” by the residents of the Gaza Strip.
The international community, together with mainstream media in the West, appears to have fallen for this deception by the Palestinians and keep endorsing the bogus claim that the residents of the Gaza Strip are engaging in a peaceful and popular “resistance” against Israel.
All that the foreign journalists and governments around the world need to do to understand the true intentions of the Palestinians behind this latest wave of terrorism is to listen carefully to what is being said in the Gaza Strip, even if it does not fit in with their “narrative.”
There are two important factors that the international community needs to notice regarding the flaming kites that the Palestinians are sending to Israel from the Gaza Strip. First: those who are launching the kites are making it clear that their ultimate goal is to kill as many Jews as possible and bring about the obliteration of Israel. Second: the Palestinians see all Jews living in Israel as “settlers.”
The reports in various Palestinian media outlets on the fires in Israel refer to Israeli towns as “settlements.” Even media outlets that are affiliated with the “moderate” Palestinian Authority, which has ostensibly recognized Israel’s right to exist, are referring to the Israeli communities near the border with the Gaza Strip as “settlements.” Even two Israeli agricultural communities, such as Sderot, which have been targeted by the flaming kites, are described as “settlements.”
What does this show? The Palestinians do not distinguish between a Jew living in the West Bank and a Jew living in Israel proper. For the Palestinians, all Jews are “settlers.” It does not matter whether they live in a settlement in the West Bank, or in Tel Aviv, Haifa or Jerusalem. For the Palestinians, there is no difference between a Jewish settlement in the West Bank and any city in Israel, including Tel Aviv.
Israel actually evacuated all Jewish settlements in the Gaza Strip in 2005 and withdrew totally to the international border. No Jews live inside the Gaza Strip. There are no “settlements” inside the Gaza Strip. Prior to the Israeli unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip, the Palestinians used to launch almost daily terror attacks on the Jews living inside the Gaza Strip. In 2005, the Palestinians got what they wanted: Israel left the entire Gaza Strip after often forcibly evacuating more than 8,000 Jews from their homes and lands.
The events of the past few weeks along the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel show that the Palestinians’ true goal is not to “liberate” the Gaza Strip, but to eliminate Israel and replace it with an Islamic state. Until 13 years ago, the Palestinians told everyone that all they wanted was to drive the Jewish settlers out of the Gaza Strip. All the settlers did leave the Gaza Strip. Now, the Palestinians are telling us that they want to drive the “remaining settlers” out of Israel. To them, all Jews in the area are legitimate targets, no matter where they live.
The Palestinians are now also telling us that the terror kites they are sending to Israel accord with what the Quran orders Muslims to do in the fight against the “infidels.” They apparently see the flaming kites as part of the jihad (holy war) against the enemies of Allah and Islam. To back up their argument, the Palestinians are quoting the verse from the Quran that states:
“And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.” (Al-Anfaal Sura, 8:60).
The jubilant reactions of Palestinians and other Arabs and Muslims to the reports about the kite fires that have destroyed thousands of acres of fields and agricultural lands in Israel also leave no doubt that this tactic is a violent jihad waged with the goal of destroying Israel and killing Jews. Each time a report about another blaze surfaces, many Palestinians take to Facebook and Twitter to shout the Islamic battle cry “Allahu Akbar!” [”Allah is Greatest”], echoing calls from ISIS, Al-Qaeda and other jihadi terror groups when they launch terror attacks against non-Muslims. The Arabs and Muslims are now referring to the kite launchers as “mujahideen” (warriors) – a sign that these terrorists are soldiers of Islam engaged in a jihad against the infidels, including, of course, the Jews.
In case anyone had doubts as to why the flaming kites are being sent to Israel, here is what one of the terrorists, Abu Al-Majd, had to say: “We are sending these kites because we want to tell the world that we are determined to return to the homes we lost 70 years ago.” In other words, what Abu Al-Majd is saying is, “We want to set fire to Israel so that the Jews will be burned or forced to leave their country.”
The jihad of the Palestinians against Israel is the same jihad that ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamic jihadi groups have also been waging on the “infidels” and “enemies of Islam” in the US, EU and other non-Muslim countries. Jihad is a religious duty imposed on Muslims to spread their religion by waging war. The word “jihad” is mentioned several times in the Qur’an, where Muslims are told that they must do their utmost to spread Islam and fight the non-Muslims.
Consider, for example, this reference to jihad in the Quran (Al-Mumtahanah S 60:1):
“O you who believe! Do not take My enemy and your enemy for close friends, offering them love while they disbelieve what has come to you of the truth, [and] rive out the Messenger and yourself because you believe in Allah – your Lord – if you have gone forth waging jihad in My name and seeing My pleasure.”
Or another verse from the Quran (Al-Maidah Sura 5:54):
“O you who believe! Whoever from among you turns back from his religion, then Allah will bring a people whom He loves and who love Him; who are humble toward the believers, are proud toward the disbelievers, do jihad in the way of Allah, and do not fear the blame of any blamer.”
When talking about this latest attempt to set Israel on fire and burn Jews, we are not talking about children who are playing with kites. We are witnessing a well-organized campaign of terror orchestrated by terrorists and activists belonging to Hamas and other Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip. The terrorists have even attached explosive devices to some of the kites. They have also formed a terror cell called the Kites Unit, similar to the gangs that fire mortars and rockets at Israel every now and then. This is the real jihad where the Palestinians are fulfilling their duty as Muslims to wage war on Jews.
The flaming kites should be seen in the context of the ongoing Palestinian terror campaign that began decades ago and the goal of which is to kill Jews and eliminate Israel. There is no difference between the kites and rockets and mortars. There is no difference between the kites, suicide bombings, stabbing and car-ramming attacks. There is no difference between the kites and drive-by shootings. There is no difference between the kites and the slaughtering of a Jewish family during a meal. The techniques may vary, but the goal remains one: to see Israel wiped off the face of the earth.
The flaming kites flying from the Gaza Strip are another act of war, another phase of the jihad launched by Palestinians and their Arab and Muslim brothers against Israel and Jews on two fronts. While the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are trying to set all of Israel on fire, the Palestinian Authority and its president, Mahmoud Abbas, are continuing to wage another type of war on Israel: that one in international forums to delegitimize Israel and demonize Jews.

EARTH’S CRUST IN TURMOIL

By Michael Snyder – http://www.prophecynewswatch.com
What is causing our planet to shake so violently all of a sudden? Rivers of lava have been pouring out of the Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii for weeks, a massive eruption of Mount Merapi just a few days ago shot volcanic ash 38,000 feet into the air, and now rivers of lava are pouring out of Guatemala’s Fuego Volcano.
Overall, Volcano Discovery is reporting that a total of 34 volcanoes around the world are erupting right now. So what is causing so much seismic activity all of a sudden, and is this a new trend that is going to continue?
If you have followed my work for an extended period of time, you already know that I tend to track these things very carefully. Major changes appear to be happening to our world, but most people have not been paying much attention up until now.
For most Americans, what is going on around the rest of the globe is of little interest, but all of the shaking in Hawaii sure is starting to get a lot of attention from the mainstream media. On Sunday, the Big Island was hit by a huge 5.5-magnitude earthquake…
A 5.5-magnitude quake rattled the Big Island Sunday afternoon, US Geological Survey officials said.
No tsunami is expected from the quake, which is among the strongest of recent quakes felt around the Big Island. The quake rumbled an area near Kilauea Volcano just before 4 p.m.
That was definitely a very large earthquake, but of much greater concern were all of the smaller earthquakes that happened on Sunday. At least 500 quakes struck the Island in a 24 hour period, and that was a new all-time record…
As of 11 a.m. Sunday, officials said 500 smaller earthquakes were recorded near the summit within the last day—it’s the most earthquakes recorded in a 24-hour period on Hawaii Island.
A lot of people that live in Hawaii did not believe that something like this would happen. Rivers of lava are reaching areas that were not supposed to be reached, and Kilauea just keeps pouring out more.
According to one report, one of the rivers of lava is “as wide as three football fields”…
National Guard troops, police and firefighters ushered the last group of evacuees from homes on the eastern tip of Hawaii’s Big Island early on Saturday, hours before lava from the Kilauea volcano cut off road access to the area, officials said.
A stream of lava as wide as three football fields flowed over a highway near a junction at Kapoho, a seaside community of rebuilt after a destructive eruption of Kilauea in 1960.
And when one of the rivers of lava reached a freshwater lake, it boiled away all of the water inside of it…
Also, lava destroyed a freshwater lake, boiling away all of the water in it, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported late Saturday, local time.
“Lava entered Green Lake within Kapoho Crater, producing a large steam plume … A Hawaiian County Fire Department overflight reported that the lava filled the lake and apparently evaporated all the water,” the report said.
It would be difficult to overstate the massive destructive power of Kilauea. Even with all of our advanced technology there is nothing that we can do to control the rivers of lava. The best that we can do is to try to evacuate everyone and then get out of the way.
Fortunately, most of the lava flows are moving slowly enough that people can make a decision to evacuate. Down in Guatemala, this new eruption of the Fuego volcano poured out lava so violently that it caught many people before they could escape…
At least sixty two people were killed and hundreds more injured on Sunday when Guatemala’s Fuego volcano erupted violently, spewing a stream of red hot lava and belching a thick plume of black smoke and ash that rained onto the capital and other regions.
“It’s a river of lava that overflowed its banks and affected the Rodeo village. There are injured, burned and dead people,” Sergio Cabanas, the general secretary of Guatemala’s Conred disaster agency, said on radio.
One village near the base of the volcano may end up being completely destroyed by the flow of lava. As the lava started flowing, rescue crews were going door to door trying to save residents…
Steaming lava flowed down the streets of a village as emergency crews entered homes in search of trapped residents, a video on a different local media outlet showed.
The eruption forced the Guatemala City’s La Aurora international airport to shut down its only runway due to the presence of volcanic ash and to guarantee passenger and aircraft safety, Guatemala’s civil aviation authority said in a Tweet.
I have been writing about the changes to our planet for the past eight years, and it appears that those changes are now accelerating. The number of earthquakes around the globe continues to rise, and volcanoes are beginning to behave in some unusual ways.
So many major cities in North America, South America and Asia sit right along the “Ring of Fire”, and if the shaking of the crust of our planet continues to intensify, it is only a matter of time before major natural disasters begin to hit some of those cities.
If Mt. Fuji were to obliterate Tokyo, or if Mt. Rainier were to pulverize Seattle, or if the “big one” finally hit the west coast of the United States, the global financial system would melt down instantly.
We are far more vulnerable to natural disasters than most people realize, and it looks like the shaking of our planet is only going to intensify in the months and years ahead.

POPE FRANCIS PREPARING TO ‘TEST MARKET’ ORDAINING MARRIED CATHOLIC PRIESTS AND LETTING WOMEN BECOME ‘MINISTERS’ IN THE AMAZON

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/pope-francis-letting-priests-get-married-women-becoming-ministers-amazon-document/
A preparatory document released on Friday also says the meeting, known as a synod, taking place in October 2019, should consider conferring on women in the area some “type of official ministry”. The comments were made during the presentation of the preparatory document for the summit of bishops next year focusing on the Pan-Amazon region and its peoples, called “Amazonia: New paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology.”
A document for a meeting of Catholic bishops from the Amazon, expected to evaluate ordaining elderly married men as priests for the vast region, says the Church should make “daring proposals”.
“And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:18 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Pope Francis has repeatedly stated that the Catholic Church is a woman, and in this the Bible is in complete agreement. Revelation 17 calls her a ‘harlot’, a ‘mystery’, and ‘babylon’, chapter 18 tells us how God will destroy her in the time of Jacob’s trouble. In fact, Catholicism centers around goddess worship, and not Jesus Christ. The Catholic rosary is comprised of ten ‘Hail Marys‘ to every one ‘Our Father’.  Official Vatican teaching makes Mary a sinless human being, something that only Jesus Christ ever was. Official Vatican teaching says that Mary is  ‘the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix’. The Amazon will be the Vatican proving ground for married priests and women ministers. 
A preparatory document released on Friday also says the meeting, known as a synod, taking place in October 2019, should consider conferring on women in the area some “type of official ministry”. The comments were made during the presentation of the preparatory document for the summit of bishops next year focusing on the Pan-Amazon region and its peoples, called “Amazonia: New paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology.”
The synod will include bishops and other representatives from the nine countries of the Amazon basin and other groups, including indigenous peoples. The document re-states Pope Francis’ calls to protect the Amazon from business and consumer greed, saying the region and its natural habitat were vital for the planet.
It calls for a solution to the problem of a lack of priests to say Mass for the people in the area of more than three million square miles.
“One of the main points to be heard is the cry of thousands of communities deprived of the Sunday Eucharist for long periods of time,” the document says. Only priests can say Mass. The document calls for a “process of discernment” within the Church to respond to the “concrete realities of the Amazonian people”.
It says the Church presence in the Amazon basin “has been spread precariously thin” because of the vast territory and its cultural diversity.
The synod is expected to discuss the possibility of ordaining “viri probati” – Latin for men of proven character – to deal with the shortage of priests. Such men would be elderly, outstanding members of the local Catholic community and with grown-up families.
Pope Francis, in an interview with a German newspaper last year, said he was willing to consider ordaining older married men as priests in isolated communities, but has ruled out making celibacy optional to tackle a shortage of clergy.
“We have to give a thought to whether ‘viri probati’ are a possibility. We then also need to determine which tasks they could take on, such as in isolated areas,” he was quoted as saying.
He ruled out opening the priesthood to all married men or watering down the Catholic Church’s commitment to celibacy, seen as a virtue that frees priests to devote their lives fully to serve God.
The preparatory document also says that, given the size of the region: “It is necessary to identify the type of official ministry that can be conferred on women, taking into account the central role which women play today in the Amazonian Church.”
The document did not elaborate. It ended with a 30-point questionnaire in which members of the Church in the Amazon were invited to give their opinion of the main challenges facing the area. (Reporting By Philip Pullella; Editing by Janet Lawrence)

MYSTERY BABYLON: FOR FIRST TIME EVER, THE VATICAN WILL BE REPRESENTED AT NEW WORLD ORDER BILDERBERG CONFERENCE

http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/mystery-babylon-vatican-represented-new-world-order-bilderberg-conference/
Cardinal Parolin’s name is included in the list of 131 participants in this year’s event. His participation in the meeting has not been officially announced by the Vatican, though sources within the Secretariat of State have confirmed that he is scheduled to take part in the meeting. It would be the first time high-ranking Vatican official has taken part in the Bilderberg Conferences.
Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, will take part in the Bilderberg Conference, an annual private gathering of global political, business and media leaders, taking place this year in Turin, Italy, June 7-10.
“Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.” Jeremiah 23:24 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Everytime I think that I am being too hard on the Jesuit Pope Francis, leader of what the Bible calls the Whore of Babylon in Revelation 17 and 18, he goes ahead and does something that renews my belief that he just may be the promised Antichrist or False Prophet from Revelation. The annual conference starts today and runs until Saturday.  For the first time ever, the Vatican is sending an official representative, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, to attend the New World Order globalist Bilderberg Conference in, of all places, Turin Italy. It is time for the Vatican to takes its annointed place as Mystery Babylon, with Pope Francis as  global political ruler and king. Getting the buy-in and support from the Bilderberg Group is how that process begins. It’s no coincidence that the Bilderberg Group hates President Trump, and made him their number topic of discussion in their 2017 meeting in Virginia last year. 
Cardinal Parolin’s name is included in the list of 131 participants in this year’s event. His participation in the meeting has not been officially announced by the Vatican, though sources within the Secretariat of State have confirmed that he is scheduled to take part in the meeting. It would be the first time high-ranking Vatican official has taken part in the Bilderberg Conferences.
Started in 1954 the Hotel de Bilderberg in Oosterbeek, The Netherlands, and named after the same hotel, the Bilderberg Conference gathers each year some 120-150 participants, among them European and North American political elites, along with industrial, financial, academic and media figures.
The first meeting took place at the invitation of Prince Bernhard of Lippe-Biesterfeld. Co-founders of the meeting were Polish politician Jozef Retinger, former Belgian prime minister Paul van Zeeland, and Paul Rijkens, who was then the head of Unilever.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER BILDERBERG CONFERENCE GROUP:
The success of the first meeting brought the organizers to stage an annual meeting. According to the groups’ official website, about two-thirds of the participants come from Europe, and the rest from North America, and one-third are political figures or government officials.
The original meeting objective was to strengthen U.S.-European relations. Over the years, the annual meetings became a forum for discussion on a wider range of topics, from ecology to trade and monetary policies.
This year’s meeting is set to discuss populism in Europe, the challenges of inequality, the future of work, artificial intelligence, U.S. midterm elections, free trade, U.S. global leadership, Russia, quantum computing, Saudi Arabia and Iran, the post-truth world, and other current events.
The Bilderberg meeting’s official website stresses that discussions are private, no minutes are taken and no reports are written.
The meetings are held under the so-called “Chatham House Rules,” an agreement typical of off-the-record meetings among academics or political leaders. According to that agreement, participants are free to use the information received, but they cannot disclose the identity nor the affiliation of speakers, nor can they disclose the other participants taking part in the conversation.
Dubbed by critics to be a kind of “global shadow government”, and targeted by protesters who picket the meeting, the Bilderberg meeting has has an official website since 2011, and publishes the names of participants in the annual meeting the day before the gathering begins.
Parolin’s participation may be an expression of the “culture of the encounter” encouraged by Pope Francis. The pope has often asked officials to engage a dialogue with the world.
Receiving the Charlemagne Prize May 6, 2016, Pope Francis stressed that ”today we urgently need to engage all the members of society in building ‘a culture which privileges dialogue as a form of encounter’ and in creating ‘a means for building consensus and agreement while seeking the goal of a just, responsive and inclusive society.’”
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)
The cardinal’s participation in the Bilderberg Conference Group could be part of a strategy of dialogue the Holy See is engaging with the influential elite global group. It is noteworthy that last year, Parolin took part in the World Economic Forum in Davos, and there he delivered a speech in which he listed the aims of pontifical diplomacy. source

JESUS, OUR HIGH PRIEST

By Grant Phillips – http://www.raptureready.com/2018/06/04/jesus-high-priest-grant-phillips/
Aaron, the brother of Moses, was the first high priest for the children of Israel. In his position of high priest he was the earthly representative of man before a Holy God.
There have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood.
“Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. Such a high priest truly meets our need-one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. For the law appoints as high priests men in all their weakness; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.” (Hebrews 7:23-28)
For every believer the Lord Jesus Christ is our High Priest who intercedes for us. Did you know that every believer is a priest?
“As you come to him, the living Stone-rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him-you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 2:4-5)
Jesus Christ who is the Son of God (He is God in other words) made it possible 2,000 years ago that we do not have to bring an animal sacrifice to an earthly priest. To do so now would be blasphemy. Why is that? Jesus Himself became our sacrifice and our High Priest.
We live in a wonderful age, the Church age. Every other person living in periods of time before us has had to provide a sacrifice and/or be very careful about obeying certain laws. It is also called the age of Grace, but actually every age is the age of Grace, because without God’s provision on this side of the cross or the other, it has always been about God’s grace.
I find it so refreshing that I do not have to go to an earthly high priest, then he go to God on my behalf. Because I am a priest, I can go to God at any time. Even when I pray, the Spirit of God intercedes for me. You can’t beat that.
“In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.
And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” (Romans 8:26-27)
I feel for those who are still living in a fog of delusion thinking they must go to an earthly priest and confess their sins. How can they not realize this is wrong? How can they not know that only Jesus can forgive sins and we can go directly to Him with anything? This is just another one of Satan’s lies intended to keep mankind away from the Truth, and all that any man need do is open their Bible and read it. There they will see the truth, and realize the roaring lion (Satan) is seeking who he may devour (1 Peter 5:8)
Do you want to be saved? You can go directly to God and ask Him to save you by putting your faith in His Son Jesus.
As a Christian are you having problems? You can go directly to God and tell Him all about them.
Are you confused about life in general? Our High Priest speaks to us through His Word, the Bible. Read it.
Do you have needs that are not necessarily problems? Go directly to Him as His child and talk to Him.
Would you just like to thank Him and praise Him? Go to Him and let Him know how you feel.
We can go to God at any time of the day or night. We don’t have to wait for the office to open. He doesn’t close on weekends either.
You will never get a busy signal. He will pick up immediately and will listen intently to everything you have to say.
Do you just need to talk to someone? He is always listening.
Our High Priest is never too busy. He is never “not interested” in what you may have to say. You are always important to Him. Sometimes we may think, “Well He’ll listen to Moses or Paul. They were important.” You are just as important to Him as anyone else. By the way, Moses and Paul would readily admit that they were nothing without God.
Do you need someone to talk to who would not be critical or accusatory, but would only want what is best for you? Maybe someone who would just love you and guide you in the right direction? If you are a believer, he is your High Priest and wants nothing but good for you.
If you are not yet a believer in Jesus Christ, He wants to be your High Priest also. If you will trust Him, you will never be disappointed.
