The only way to find God is by seeking.

Posted: December 8, 2010 in Blog Talk Radio: Religion Exposed

God desires more than anything for Man to believe in him and know him through his word. If men will just humble themselves and seek after him (2 Chron 7:14), the Holy Spirit will lead and guide him into all truth, for that is the function of the spirit.  Understanding the true doctrine of the Father is not an easy task, for many take the very same Bible and twist and turn it to perpetuate their own doctrine. Has that ever concerned you? How come we have so many religions, denominations, doctrines, etc. and we all read basically from the same Bible? Is it possible to serve God in the manner in which your particular religion seems fit, or should we worship God the way in which he desires? The Bible is not open to interpretation and God is not a confused God. When he gave a law, statute, or judgment, he had one idea in mind. In other words he did not create a law and say “here interpret it anyway you like.”

How many times have you told your kids to clean up their room or go take the garbage out? What if they had 20 different interpretations on what that meant, would you be satisfied with that? Some may take the garbage out of the kitchen and put it in the bedroom. In an honest attempt to clean their room, kids may take all their dirty clothes, dishes and toys and stuff them under their bed because this is their interpretation or understanding of how these things should be done. Sounds silly huh? That’s exactly what God thinks of how you have made his word void by your own interpretations even if it is an honest attempt.

It takes time, work and research to begin to understand what God expects of us. How quick we forget that the bible tells us to seek him, seek his house, and seek his face.(Deut 12:5; 2 Chron 7:14;Psalms 9:10; 22:6; M’t 7:8). Seek means that something is not easily found. It means that you must go and discover something that is hidden or unclear. Waking up and deciding to go to this Church or the one down the street is not seeking, it’s really more complicated than that.  Psalms 10:4 tells us that the wicked will not seek him. Are you wicked? If you refuse to seek after him, this is what the Bible calls you! Be honest, seek and you shall find!(Luke 11:19)

Man, through his religious philosophies have distorted the Word of God so much that it is necessary for us to seek and find him. People assume because of their worldly arrogance that they have God in his fullness. I’ve heard people tell me that they speak in tongues, they pay their mortgage on time every month, and even that they have prayed to God in the past and their prayers have been answered. Therefore, they are under the assumption that they have found God in his fullness and need not seek any further. In their mind, everything is OK. Just because God gives you a few crumbs here and there doesn’t mean you have him in his fullness. Matthew 5:45 tells us “for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust”. Let us not be tricked by possessions or the fact that we have gotten out of some bad situations in the past. Some of the biggest sinners are the wealthiest. As the scripture just said, many people benefit from the glory of God and what he has put on this earth. It is the will of God for man to worship him in both spirit and in truth for John 4:24 says they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24). Understanding the mind of God requires us to ask of our Pastors and spiritual leaders questions. Are they able to make the unclear scriptures clear? Can they answer the seemingly contradicting scriptures?  This is necessary if we are to gain entry into the Kingdom of Heaven. Some Ministers will take the easy road out and explain that it is impossible to know the mind of God for his thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways his ways. 1st Thessalonians 5:21however admonishes us to prove ALL things for this was the job of the Apostles. Even today, it takes a TRUE APOSTLE to make those things which are unclear clear.  God has set up those in which he reveals his secrets to as stated by Amos (3:7; 1 Cor 12:28; Eph. 4:11-13)

“Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

So the question is will you put the time and effort into searching out the scriptures and asking questions. Because it is God’s desire for you to know him in his fullness, he has no problem with leading you to those that are able to feed you with knowledge and understanding. Since HE (God) is giving them(Apostles and guardians of the mystery-1 Cor. 4:1), with time you will be able to distinguish His Pastors from those that have set themselves up. Or will you be one of those that will be destroyed because you reject knowledge (Hosea 4:6), for the bible says that only fools hate knowledge. (Proverbs 1:22).  God will give Pastors that will lead and guide you and he will eventually destroy those that lie and wait to deceive you.

Jeremiah 3:15 (King James Version)

15And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Jeremiah 23 (King James Version)

1Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.

2Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.
