If I am asked what church I go too, everything in me wants to shout, I go too, my fathers house.
On Sunday a speaker we know was at another church, about 20 mins from where I live. So off we go, all people were very welcomed.
What struck me is he went on about when you say this is, your fathers house, then you are open, you cannot sin or swear. You have to live like you are in the fathers house. Awesome, that is exactly what I want.
I know if I don’t live his way and be subject to correction then I cannot advance into his kingdom. That is one part of growing up, to grow you have to be corrected, to move into maturity. Some lessons are hard and you have to honour your earthly parents, if you don’t, how can you honour God. You have to start at the beginning or that will come back to cause problems. I know that, I have to take each step with caution and be aware of all I have to learn.
extra: The lord just reminded me of when I first gave myself and was baptised (what a day) at the time. God had me going up the ladder, in spirit I saw a staircase to him. Every step was clear and when I accomplished that level, I took another step, what made me laugh is, it lite up and I would hear this ding like an elevator opening each step was vast and I knew I had to put the work in to advance. Once I ran up a few, that was fun, I walked around for days with a big grin on my face.
baptism: I remember where I worked I told a couple of people who asked what are you doing this weekend, with all honesty I said, getting baptised. One said why, have you not been christened, I said yes I have, then the question so why be baptized.
My answer to that was, when you are a baby your christened and this is your parents choice. Being baptized is mine, with full knowledge and with my whole heart.
events since: I had waited and waited then two others where also baptized the same day. What amazes me still, is they walked away, one is no longer with us, I have to say this, when you are the apple of his eye and someone decides to say bad things about you and attack you, do not do a thing. The father deals with them and I am sad to say this man attacked the fathers kids and died, why am I sharing this, he got throat cancer (really fast). He said, before he died he knew why this happened, he attacked by speaking bad things and he was wrong.
The blessing in that is he made peace before he went. I know where I am is so close to him, I have warned people around me, if you have a problem with me then lets talk about it. Do not go behind my back or think you can rip me off, I have scared people with this comment but as I said, I go to my fathers house. You mess with me, he is watching and he is very jealous of those he loves. I know this is true, it happens all the time, when things go wrong for them, I know they have done something and my father is not happy.
You should, fear the Lord, he made heaven and earth. If you have no fear, as his child then how can you be corrected or know the limits. Food for thought, now go work on your day, knowing your part of, the fathers house.
If you read this and make the decision, as I always say, when you lose everything you want, then you win because he gives you so much more, than you can imagine for yourself.
I Love being part of MY FATHERS HOUSE…………
