I wrote this just in case my Savior has already come back and you need to know some answers. I can just imagine how the world is chaotic now (it is already chaotic at this point), but do not despair. Have hope. There is an answer. These disappearances have a reason, and I believe I am one of those who have disappeared. I wrote this before all of these happened, and I hope you will find the answers that you are looking for.
WHO IS YOUR GOD?
God refers to “the Supreme Being and principal object of faith.” For Christians, God is our Maker, the Director of our lives, our Best friend (through Jesus), our Beginning and End. It is important to have a clear notion of who your God is because it determines how you live your life, how you view your relationships, how you set your goals, how you undermine difficulties. God (or lack of one) in a person’s life greatly affects his total being.
WHO IS MY GOD?
- My God is the God of the Bible.
- My God created the Heavens and the Earth
- My God has different attributes – He is kind, good, justice, love, mercy, grace, immeasurable, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent.
- My God loves me.
- My God died for me to save me from my own sins
- My God is three in one – Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit
HOW DO YOU LIVE WITH A GOD?
The God of the Bible made us and allowed us to enjoy this life that he has given us. However, because of free will, we are free to choose which path to take in this life, and our God has an enemy who lures us away from our God’s perfect plan.
To live with a God means to trust him with your life on the basis that He made you and He loves you. He doesn’t want for you to be destroyed. He has great plans for you (Jeremiah 29:11). To love with a God means to be under His authority, yet enjoy a fellowship with Him. He is a King, but an approachable one. A Father. A Friend. A Teacher. He is not some monarchy that you can view from afar. Our King is a personal King.
To live a life with God means to surrender everything you have to His authority, to walk in his statutes, to obey his commandments, knowing that it is for the good.
In Leviticus 18, the Israelites (God’s chosen people) just came from a long life of servitude under the Egyptians and they might have been influenced by the way they live. In addition, en route the promised land, they will also encounter a new culture that DIFFERS from the way that God wants them to live. Due to this, God warned them and gave them a command not to follow the ways of these people who has different gods – gods and peoples that have different practices like child sacrifice (v. 21), homosexuality (v. 22), adultery (v. 20), having sex with animals (v. 23). These are abomination in the eyes of God because God designed us and he knows how we should function, and he knows what is good for us. It is saddening to see that we are in a fallen world because of these abominations. In these times, we can really see that “25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.” With all these wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, bombings, etc, it is as if we are destroying our own race. With all the calamities, we are like being eliminated by nature. Men and women turned to evil and we are reaping the consequences – diseases, tragedies, pain and suffering. The world is turning evil by the minute and it seems unstoppable… but it will stop. JESUS will come back again. JESUS will come back as a judge. He will take His people with him, and after that there will be 7 years… 7 years of great tribulation… of suffering. Some will still be saved during that times, but there are many who will choose to live an easier life. Then, the final battle of good and evil will come, and GOD – the TRUE GOD – will win.
So to you, who is reading this, know that JESUS came to this broken world more than 2000 years ago to save YOU from the consequences of your sins. He longs to have a personal relationship with you. He longs for you to acknowledge the TRUE GOD in your life, for you to live according to His will. It is the only way to be saved. ACCEPT THE LOVE AND SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST AT THE CROSS OF CALVARY. ACCEPT HIM IN YOUR HEART. ACCEPT HIM AS YOUR LORD AND PERSONAL SAVIOR. REPENT FROM YOUR SINS. SIN NO MORE. LET GOD TAKE OVER. The path maybe difficult, but it will be worth it in the end.
You need God more than you imagine. He loves you more than you know.
Our God is not dead. He is surely alive. Let Him live in you, my friend. Turn to the Bible. Be transformed.

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the Lord your God.
3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the Lord your God.
5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the Lord.
20 Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her.
21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.
24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
26 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.
29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.
30 Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God.
