In Jesus’s expression of love to us, his own father said “no” to Jesus. When this happened Jesus replied my God my God why have you forsaken me? This is a true experience of the hell of no relationship with God. In the garden, his disciples fell asleep. In the garden, Adam and Eve said they wanted Knowledge of good and evil more than God and relationship with God. God in the deepest purest way knows the sound of NO when it feels like it is going to crush the life out of you.
Yes, Jesus completed the fulfillment of the cross and resurrection because he loves you, not for himself, Jesus first loved you. Jesus is the root cause of all manifestations of love for believers in God and unbelievers. Without God, there is no source for love to build on. Therefore, when friends tell me “I will just have a beer with my friends in hell” they are assuming the love of friendship they have in this time will go on in hell. NO, love of any kind is separated infinitely far away from the realm of hell.
Lucifer is the god of “I” and “I” only. Hate, fear, loneliness, no morals, and no love a complete absence of good will are the rule in the realm of Hell. There is hope though in the master and commander of love in the work of Jesus Christ only. I would think this exclusive claim and narrow way of thought as superior and arrogant if I did not know the plan of God through the Bible AKA The Word of God.
Jesus is the most exclusive offer to humankind, yet at the same moment the offer of God cannot deny anyone entrance who calls on Jesus’s name in humility of soul, heart, and mind. If you believe there is Good and evil in the world then you are on a path that acknowledges there is a God. This is not enough for salvation, Lucifer knows good and evil yet is not redeemed but is independent from God.
If you have loved or been loved you have experienced a photograph of what God’s love is about. Love is very tough but, must be accepted to do any good in eternity. This is the decision humankind holds in their heart and mind to make in regards to God. If we decide that good behavior, doing good, or God’s good grace will get everyone into heaven you are being blinded by the evil one and denying God.
If we decide to avoid the God issue altogether, we are still deciding against God. Keeping this decision in the total control of humankind is what knowledge of good and evil is all about. For this Knowledge to be active in our life it must be experienced and we get to decide who is the source of evil. If we reject God’s gift of salvation or plea no contest in our decision about God, these decisions are counted as against the existence of God.
God, because He gave it, cannot and will not, take your personal privilege of choice about God away from you, will at the appointed time honor your decision and will send you away from heaven. God cannot take your choice away from you. It is your choice not God’s.
God says “No” to no one on the entry to heaven. This decision is solely in in our clay hands to deal with. The answer God gives to you will be the answer you gave to him as you lived here in this life. God is inviting you to His home in Heaven every moment of your life. What are you going to do in this decision?
The love of God will start a change in you and your thinking. God paid a near infinite price for your salvation. Satan is a near infinite being, is finally proven finite by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. The grave could not hold Jesus! If you accept Jesus’s gift of salvation, death will not hold you either for the same reason. Which is: God’s love will lift me into heaven, because I submitted to his will and love here, and believed with faith that his grace, mercy, and love is sufficient.
This faith is tested by the reality that I am able to see, when I see how ugly people treat each other, or watch the news, I perceive how evil and wrong this world is. I must remember the ways of this world will pass away, like Satan they are finite. What will be left?
Nevertheless, some sweet day all evil and shadows of evil will be separated along with all those who choose to deny God. After this division, the thing that will remain in heaven is pure God love. Heaven will be pure illumination of mind heart, soul, and body with infinite peace and tranquility. We will have an eternity to explore the adventure of God. Every day will be an adventure of awe-inspiring proportions and the body that can withstand this pure joy.
Adrenaline jockeys think they are brave when they do death-defying stunts and manage to live through all their trials. Facing death may be a thrill but only in this life! Facing life and knowing that you are going to go on will be so much more rich and exciting because you are exploring The infinite God who is the source of life. Death will have lost its power and there will be no more cheating death. Adrenaline jockeys always faced death to make themselves feel alive. With life abundant from God it is going to be incredibly rich and lively as we live the adventure of real life.
God will say No to all forms of evil to protect his beloved children because of love. Jesus offers to take all your evil and remove it from you because of God’s love. He will never say no to you if you ask for forgiveness in sin you/we still bear in this flesh as it experiences good and evil, because of God’s love gives you the choice. How do you decide this issue in your heart and mind?
Religion will not allow you to find yourself, religion is more like a carrot at the end of a stick to entice you to an impossible goal. Relationship with God is the only way to find yourself through Jesus Christ. Jesus completely immersed himself in you as you immerse yourself in him, there is no carrot, just manifestation of his truth and love for his bride. This adventure is not for the weak in mind or fainthearted. Let me know how you decide, come on back and read for more things that you can decide on.
