How is it that we get so caught up in heaven and miss the bigger picture? Through Jesus blood, we do get eternal life in heaven and even though this is true, it should not be our main focus. The Bible says that the only way to get to the Father is through Jesus (John 14:6) We need to stop spending time figuring out ways to get to heaven and focus on how to build our relationship with our heavenly Father! God’s greatest command in the bible is Love Him, so what should we spend more time doing, getting our life right so we can get to heaven or spending our time drawing near to him? God is not a means to reach the end, God IS the end! For many Christians, heaven has become idolitary and I am seeing it more and more. They spend time praying, reading the word, praising God because they desire to attain entrance into the “pearly gates.” WOULD YOU WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN IF GOD WASN’T GOING TO BE THERE? Would it be worth it to you? STOP USING GOD AS A TOOL TO REACH HEAVEN AND FOCUS ON GOD HIMSELF! GOD IS THE PRIZE AND HE WANTS A REAL RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU, NOT TO BE USED AS A PAWN IN YOUR PLAN TO GET INTO HEAVEN!!!!!!
You do not get to know God, have a relationship with God, and spend time in his word and in prayer in order to gain entry for eternity into heaven. You get to know God because God is the prize. Ask yourself this: Would you want to go to heaven if Jesus isn’t going to be there?
James 4:7–8 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will ﬂee from you. 8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
If i blasphemed and im didnt mean it and is deeply sorry to lord jesus christ and i know he is my god in repent is there hope for me? ( i dont know alot about religon so thats why im asking)
Bible talks about blasphemy being the unforgivable sin. But what does it mean to speak blasphemy?
Blaspheming the Holy Spirit occurs when a person who knows better rejects the Word of God which the Holy Spirit is attempting to bring into the heart of that person. Hence this rejection or this refusal is telling the Holy Spirit that what he is trying to bring into the person’s heart is not being believed, that it’s not worth the effort or the time to even look into it or study it, that the very Word of God is not important, and that the beliefs and teachings of Jesus Christ are being rejected.
So you say you did it but “didnt mean it”, are you still offered forgiveness?
Anyone trusting in Jesus’ salvation can be forgiven even of the sin of having in the past believed that Jesus, the one mediator between God and humanity (1 Timothy 2:5)is so vehemently opposed to God as to be in league with the devil. But no one can ever be forgiven while they believe Jesus is in league with the devil. This offer of forgiveness for past blasphemy is confirmed in the book of Acts. (Acts 3:13-18 if you are curious..also Acts 2:36-38) lol
so yes there is hope for you, as it says in those scriptures “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”
God sees your heart, he knows if it was intentional and knowingly and he knows if your heart is truly repentant. from what you are telling me, you are seeking forgiveness and he is merciful and willing to forgive.
(now that is not a contradiction in scripture as believed to be so by some but those same people aren’t understanding or looking at the context of what they read and compare)
I dont care how strong your religion or church life is! On that day of judgment God will tear it down and it will wilt. When humans claim themselves to be righteous they are doing it by contrasting themselves with others who are worse. You can get away with that, but when your righteousness is contrasted with the righteousness of God there is nothing but to throw yourself down and declare your morality to be caca!
I dont want anything other than you. I don’t need anyone other than you. I just want to love you all the more as you continue to shape me into this servant i desire to be. I know i have messed up so much in the past but no matter how far i ran, you were always the one that cared for me when i came crawling back and you always managed to put me back together. Please weed out anything in my life that isn’t pleasing to you so i may glorify you in every aspect of my life! Thank you for always being there for me and constantly showing me you love me.
“Christ did not die to forgive sinners who go on treasuring anything above seeing and savoring God. And people who would be happy in heaven if Christ were not there, will not be there. The gospel is not a way to get people to heaven; it is a way to get people to God. It’s a way of overcoming every obstacle to everlasting joy in God. If we don’t want God above all things, we have not been converted by the gospel.”—TruthSpeaks!
“The liar says At least I don’t steal,
The theif says well at least I don’t kill,
The killer says well at least I don’t rape woman,
The rapist says well at least I don’t rape children,
Com on fam, is that how we livin now?
Is that how you convince yourself that you ain’t livin foul?
Comparin yourself to people you think are worse than you, compare yourself to Christ and you’ll learn the truth.”—Bizzle
