“How can you explain God’s existence in this world when you cannot even see Him?”

“Ooopps! No so fast my friend.  Look again on a very powerful microscope and check what protein molecule binds us together?”

Wow!  ‘Laminin,’ believe it or not, in the form of a cross, is the protein molecule that binds our cells and tissues together, as further explained by Louie Giglio on above YouTube video link. Inspired by this truth on ‘Laminin’s’ connection to Jesus with the ‘crucified Christ’ in us, the binding cross that acts as an adhesive for all cells and tissues in our body, everything seen in ‘Laminin,’ is the truth in God’s words, as you may let the Holy Spirit guide to this phenomenon, and while you may read this kindle e-book, as you may open your hearts and souls, may you see ‘God’s kingdom in you’ (one of three ‘Let’s KJOH’ ebooks series thus far) , “‘Laminin,’ Binding Truth of the Cross and Creation, Avoiding Hell, Purgatory and Generational Sins.”  

Praise be the Lord Alleluia! How to avoid Hell, Purgatory and generational sins and curses with the crucified Christ in us in ‘Laminin,’ is further explained on same ebook, with a powerful prayer in it shared to help free us and our ancestors from the bondage of generational sins and curses. [Read on hubpages support post: Supporting Videos and Links for ebook:  “‘Laminin,’ Binding Truth of the Cross and Creation, Avoiding Hell, Purgatory and Generational Sins”] ImageAbove photo of the crucified Christ was taken at Saint Augustine Church, Culver CIty, CA on March 2013.

Have anyone notice, each time we come short of abiding in Jesus, there are signs that seem to remind us we need to go back to Him?

If not, do we not see how we may feel guilty in our hurts and pains as we listen more to our pride with malice in our hearts? Read this e-book and see how you may see ‘God’s kingdom in you.”

As in Matthew 10:34, Jesus said addressed to those who refuse to believe in His words, “Do not suppose that I come to bring peace to the earth.  I do not come to bring peace but a sword.”

A daunting challenge to us all that in His words come greater power, and anyone who refuse to abide and believe, may not find peace in himself, in his household, in his community or in his nation, rather, more self inflicted pain and stress.

May humility and obedience to God in Jesus, believing and following the truth in His words and commands, guide us in our everyday life, as in the humbling examples of our new pope in Pope Francis, and that of Saint Francis himself, may we become stronger in our faith in giving honor to Him as our Lord, Savior and True Master, that in Him, truth and peace may reign.

“I believe in everything.  I do not want to be bias against any religion because everyone has an opinion about the existence of God or the absence of a god in our lives.”

And another one says, “How can there be God if until now no one have seen him?”

It is our belief system that allows us to understand or not to understand God.  God has created in us a mind which we may all think all thoughts come from our brain.

Beyond this, there is something more, and this ebook further explains the truth that Jesus is in all of mankind since the beginning of creation and will always be there in us as He is in our being.

This ebook is meant to enlighten and please let me know your honest thoughts after reading it.

For me, everything belongs to God, I am a mere steward of anything He blesses me with while I may share with others the truth in God’s words in the light of Christ that we all may share and believe in His truth as we continue to pray through the Holy Spirit, be guided and more enlightened.

Blessings to you and your family as you may share in His goodness and in whatever good deeds may favor you doing, that  in all these, God may be glorified.

“I hate you!  You never loved me!  I don’t want to see your face again, ever!”

“You never listened to me and you never tried to understand me.  You’re such a bore and I hate being with you.”

“I have always been right and you know it.  You have been wrong all the time.  Anyone who does not agree with me is no better than dead.”

“I know that I can do anything as long as I believe I can do it.  I do not have to believe in Jesus or in anyone to achieve my goals.  By believing in myself alone, I can do it.”

“I believe I can live forever as long as I do so believe I can.  I do not have to believe in Jesus.  Nobody can make me believe in him.”

Are these words in any way familiar to you?  Are these of God or from the evil one?

While it is true that we may believe what we may want to believe, and this is from our own ‘free will,’ may not our emotions or our past negative or traumatic experiences hinder us from believing in what is true in God’s words, and from believing what is true in Jesus.

[Read this post as we may seek the truth about God:   God or Mammon – to Serve only One Master]

In John 14:6, Jesus answered, “I am the truth, the way and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

How many times have we been carried away by our emotions?   And how many times have we come into trouble because of this?

Recently, another senseless killing and violence in Aurora, Colorado was all over the news.  The suspect, a young 24 year old PhD student from San Diego, California, James Holmes,  reportedly peppered bullets while inside a movie theater among a big crowd of Batman moviegoers, all wanting to see the popular “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Influenced by the famed Batman’s great nemesis in ‘Joker’ or not, as others may have creatively surmised after seeing him fancily appearing in court for the first time sporting an ‘orange’ dyed hair – as on this related link on YahooNews – we are once again challenged in our faith as we may begin to reflect on the true purpose of our being in this life.

Would we rather face life as a ‘joke’ with all the lures of materialism around us or would we face it in truth, that no material thing in this life will ever give us true contentment, true peace or true happiness in this life because ‘everything in the world is just passing,’ and ‘whether we like it or not, everything material will never last, including our life.’

Now, if we see in Lucifer the ever cunning and intelligent master of evil gets into our hearts and soul, would we not rather be set free from all these and return to our True Master in Jesus?

And again, is it not our foolish pride, selfishness and malice in our hearts, the lack of love and understanding, and the lack of forgiveness as we let material things rule our mind, has this not caused division among all peoples in the world?

Is it not evil around us that tells us not to believe in God, in Jesus, that we may remain confused and lost as we may learn to trust more what is deceiving and live in darkness?

How many have we already seen, senseless killings and all, here in the US and around the world, with mostly innocent men and women, many times including children, as hapless and defenseless victims.  Is it not in Jesus’ words that he said not to deny him, lest we do not want to have peace  in our lives, as in Matthew 10:34?

How many more will we have to watch and see, while we sit on in the comfort of our homes, in awe, in sadness, yet powerless against all that is evil around us.

It is not the ‘absence of God’ in our lives that has helped encourage all these?

Remember my friends, God in Jesus has always been there in our spirit carrying us in our hurts, despair and disappointments in life.  Our ever forgiving and ever righteous God wants us back in his flock.  He does not want us to stay in darkness and be lost in evil.  He wants us to follow him and remain in his flock.

Jesus is our hope for ‘in him and in him alone is our salvation,’ make no mistake about that, and never entertain any doubt, lest we want the evil one become our master, and see our spirit perish with him?

Looking back at the time of our great fore parents in Adam and Eve, they have fallen short of God’s grace as they fell prey to the deceitful ways of Satan, embodied by the serpent, promising them wisdom and knowledge if they only believed in him and take of and eat the forbidden fruit.  Hence, just like Satan and the fallen angels having been outcast from heaven, they have to be outcast from Paradise, to live and endure mortal trials and suffering as penalty for their disobedience and yes, always wary of Satan’s unending volleys of temptation thrown onto their path along with the pressures as they face the realities of their shortened life where death is inevitable from their sin, that all of us, their descendants, have to live with, until our True Messiah in Jesus came to save us from this ‘original’ sin.

And in that basic community blessed by marriage, where man and woman share their life together, and if so blessed with children as husband and wife, the husband becomes the head, as Christ is the head of the church, as the true bearer of God’s truth in his words, to help guide and enlighten his wife and family ‘as Christ loves his church,’ as in Ephesians 5:25,  and the wife, to ‘submit to your husband as to the Lord,’ as in Ephesians 5:22.

While Eve was created from the rib of Adam, that Adam may feel the joy as he sees himself gifted and blessed by God with a partner, one taken from his own flesh, and thus be freed from loneliness, is it not the message of love, honor, respect and unity of purpose in God seen here as the main focus, not superiority of position out of selfishness, material pride or any form of malice?

No form of manipulation or retaliation to gain advantage over the other must ever rule, otherwise, would there be love?  Giving and forgiving is the key to a lasting relationship, and as husband and wife may live in the flesh, they may share the joys of living in love, united in passion for each other, as they may remain in one flesh and one body in Christ Jesus, ‘through him all things were made’ as in John 1:3, and may see eternal life in them, together with their children as one family, with love and forgiveness in their hearts and in their endless faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

If God created us out of ‘love’ and continues to do so that he gave us His only begotten Son in Jesus, to sacrifice and die for us on the cross, purchasing us from our sins, and through the power in his resurrection and the power of his mercy – I pray that we be enlightened by this truth, and strongly encourage everyone to read the bible starting with the Acts of the Apostles, and see how the power of the Holy Spirit has guided the apostles, that we too may find strength while we seek the truth in this life, the true purpose of our being and see the glory of God in Christ Jesus reign in our mind, in our hearts and spirit, forever, as we may have eternal life in us.

May you join me in prayer that in our love  for our people and our nation, we may be guided to bring back  the light of Christ in our lives, that we may all be healed as we see the power of God’s love and mercy upon us all, and be empowered while imploring the Holy Spirit to proclaim in peace the truth in Christ Jesus, and to become fearless as witnesses in his great works in us, that God in Jesus may be glorified as we keep him in our hearts, in his presence, forever in him we may triumph against all that is evil in this world and be healed.

Our Commentary Topic Post link:  ‘You Can Change Your Life with a Few Simple Steps’ by Cindy   Nicolson.

Good point on conquering ourselves Cindy and Win.

Nice to be a winner indeed.   But for how long?

As you’ve said Cindy, life is short.   What could be better, would it not be a plan for eternity?   If we were with wise men we would be wise as in Proverbs 13:20?   How does being wise compare with the wisdom of God?

Will you not agree with me that being wise here means being as wise as those who follow God’s words?

I know that some people may find my views boring, many times, though, do we realize that we can get confused and get lost focusing our efforts more on material things in this life which may just be reduced to nothingness?  And this may all become meaningless as we come to pass?

St. Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 3:16-23,

“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.

“Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight.”

And in Romans 8:36-39, Saint Paul makes it clear how we, as believers, become more than conquerors,

“As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, no any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

With above verses I have learned to understand that truly, ‘man cannot live by bread alone’ as in Matthew 4:4, and it takes more than anything in this world to make man truly happy, and that is believing and living the words of God in Christ Jesus.

And in 1 Corinthians 1:19, Saint Paul in Christ,

“For it is written:

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

For is not God’s wisdom greater than human wisdom?

If we have to die today, what will we ask our Creator to justify an extension of our life?

But how can we ever ask for an extension when we have not truly believed in Him or have just put Him on the sidelines while we have tried to satisfy our own cravings?

Is this not similar to denying Him?  Is it not better to invest on the long term than on a short term?  Even a true businessman knows this, the only difference being, seeing things beyond this life, which is spiritual.

Did God not say love one another as He has loved us?   Or was it love ourselves first before we love others?

I have tried doing this before and loving my ego for it but what did I get, I was humbled with a mild heart attack, and after 8 years, had a mild stroke, perhaps, as a reminder that I need to refocus my life on Him and share the light of Christ Jesus, His Son, through his love, mercy and forgiveness with others.

While God wants us to be happy in this life, He simply asks us, as we have been gifted with a free will, to put Him at the center of our life that we may better live this life in true peace and happiness, as we live in harmony with His Spirit.

Try to do otherwise, and disregard love for others – a love that is true and responsible – do we not suffer more in pain and put ourselves more into trouble?  We may for a time be happy with our material possessions, but will this really last, or, are pressures from material things creating a hell out of our lives?

Is the evil one just fooling us by veering us away from the truth in Christ’s words and the true meaning of love which is for one another?

When we enjoy life out of the love of others, do we not feel a more profound happiness that lasts with fulfillment in our hearts and spirit?

The beauty that we see with our own eyes may better be pleasing and more enhanced with the beauty that we see from within our spirit.

And God being spirit, can we not better relate to Him also with our hearts and spirit, and in our love and concern for others?

Others may say this is Communism, but does communism really paint a picture of love where there is lack of freedom and the absence of God in our midst?

I remember the words of Jesus to Saint Peter when Peter cut one ear one of Jesus’s captors (but later picked it up and miraculously restored it back), in Matthew 26:52, he said, “Put your sword back in its place, for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”

Are not the swords of too much materialism, envy and malice towards others causing us to suffer because that is what we have chosen to invest upon?

And in Hebrews 4:12 KJV, it states, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Praying through the Holy Spirit for discernment may guide us better as we live this life.

Thank you for this opportunity to share in Christ on your post Cindy, Godspeed to all.
