Is God real?

Post  baby_blue4u on Thu 10 Apr 2008, 3:28 pm

Is God real? What about Satan? Is Heaven a literal place of existence? What about Hell? Everyday millions of people ponder these same questions. Struggling to gain truth of this matter is a reality for Believers and unbelievers alike. Millions of people believe life ends at death. They've concluded that death means sleeping and existing in a state of nothingness. However, the reality according to God's Word is the grave is not the end!

As humans, we're born into this physical world. We're educated in this physical world, and therefore we only understand the things of this world. However, physical training does not equip us with the ability to comprehend spiritual things like the reality of life after death.

In order to understand this complex topic we must explore and understand the anatomy of man. Man is a spirit being—he doesn't have a spirit, he is a spirit. He possesses a soul, where his emotions and intellect reside; and he lives in a physical body.

Because we live in a physical world, we've been trained to believe the physical body we see is our entire existence, but that's untrue. The spirit of man is eternal—it lives forever. When we die, our spirit and soul separates from our physical body. Once that happens, we separate from the physical world, and are immediately born into the spirit world, where our spirit and soul will live forever.

Heaven, Hell, angels, and demons exist in the spirit realm, and when we depart from this physical realm and enter the spiritual realm, we will see the reality of this truth. The Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. However this is only true for the person who is born again. For the person who is not born again, being absent from the body is to be present in Hell.

So what happens to the person who refuses to accept this truth, and dies having been bewitched by the world into thinking that Heaven and Hell aren't real? The harsh reality of their self—made reservation to Hell will quickly set in, and the truth they've heard and rejected will torment them for eternity. Don't let this happen to you!

I urge you to decide to make Jesus the Lord of your life now! Don't allow another day to pass without knowing with certainty that you're Heaven bound. Now is the acceptable time. You can be born again right now, wherever you are, by realizing and admitting that you are a sinner. Repent and ask God to forgive your sins; change your heart, your mind, and your direction. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Once you complete these simple steps you're saved and on your way to Heaven. Get connected to a Bible—based church, and allow the power of God to transform your life. You'll be glad you did!

With discussions stemming from controversial topics such as same—sex marriage, abortion, the fair tax, social security, and education reform, the 2008 election is sure to be one of the most critical elections in history. As the time to cast your ballot swiftly approaches, I thought it only fitting to offer some spiritual insight to consider when electing the next generation of political leaders.

First and foremost, as Christians, seeking the will of God must be our primary priority. Of course we rely on prayer; however, along with prayer you must do your research so you can make an informed decision. However, remember that research only gives you the facts, and facts are subject to change. The Word of God is truth, and it says that we should acknowledge Him in all our ways and allow Him to direct our paths. So after we've gathered the facts, we've got to be diligent in seeking God—and let Him direct us on voting for the candidate that is part of His will for this country.

Throughout this entire campaign race, I've seen people so consumed with the facts, and the celebrity status of the candidates, that they've totally disregarded God. Make no mistake about it, we are in the End Times, and only God knows the future of this nation. We have to do what the Word says—acknowledge Him, allow Him to direct our vote, and then pray for all those in authority over us. Whether we like a particular candidate or not isn't a stance we can afford to take. As the Word instructs, we must remain active, watchful, and vigilant in prayer on behalf of every elected and appointed official.

Prayer is our secret weapon of power. It's how we get results. I truly believe when we stop fault—finding and complaining, and start praying, we'll see the hand of God move in our government. The Bible says the heart of the king is in God's hand. No matter what it seems like, God rules this nation; there is no authority in place, except that ordained by Him. So as Christians, we've got to get back to the point of trusting God, not man!

As we near the time of ballot—casting and electoral vote counting, we've got to put aside our research and reasoning. I encourage you to remain vigilant in prayer—pray without ceasing for the will of God to be done in our government and in our nation. Pray that the Lord turns the heart of wicked men and women in government toward Him, and have faith that your prayers are answered by Heaven.

Vote in faith as led by the Holy Spirit, and trust God, who is our source.
