Many; but thankfully not all, popular modern religious institutions and influential ministers today focus mainly on the feel good side of religion. This in part, is due to an honest yearning to reach someone anyone in the secular world to draw them into the blessings and love of God.
There are also those who only preach a feel good side of God. They do not know to fear the Lord which is to Love God. To truly know God you will know His righteousness, jealousy, and wrath. (Deuteronomy 10:12) “And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the Lord and His statutes which I command you today for your good?”
Teaching a one sided approach to doctrine shows proof to an ignorance of a relationship with God. Proving a blindfolded wisdom open to the deceptions and perverted influences from Satan. (Luke 13:27) But He will say, ‘I tell you I do not know you, where you are from. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity.’ (Matthew 7:21-23) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
The problem is that this one sided approach to God has created and imbalance to a well rounded and powerful relationship with a triune Godhead. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have separate and distinct functions which; by“all” accounts, can not and must not “only” be approached from a watered down lovey dovey, feel good, prosperous, and hunky dory pleasantry teachings alone! (1 John 5:7) For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.
Believers Are Salt and Light.
Christians must stand up tall and be the salt that cleanses this infectious perversion of Scriptures. Satan loves the fact that he has tricked the world into the feel good only toleration’s of Scripture. Satan has lullabied the world into believing that he does not exist therefore there is no Hell or eternal consequences to sin. (Matthew 5:13-16) “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men. “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
Christianity is not all wine and roses!
To have a truly well rounded and powerful relationship with Jesus (God the Father, and Holy Spirit) we must learn to fear the Lord and know His wisdom in almighty power, judgment, wrath, and Holiness. (Psalm 111:10) The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.
I hear all too often, from feel good Christians and Prosperity Preachers….we must name it to claim it. Speak it to receive it. Pray the same daily prosperity prayers till the Lord makes them Rich and Healthy. True! All of these things are possible through God, If?… you “know” Him and have an “intimate loving daily relationship with Jesus (God the Father, and Holy Spirit).
To enter into a daily bread relationship with God (Jesus, and Holy Spirit) is to spend time with God the Father to learn His will for our lives. This is where we are fully equipped and receive the necessary tools and blessings that enrich and enhance our lives and His Kingdom. (Matthew 6:33) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Nothing is impossible with God!
A byproduct of spending time with God is to receive every single gift and blessing possible from your Heavenly Father who desires to take care of you as His son or daughter. You are a Child of God! If earthly parents do their best to provide for their children, then how much more is possible from the perfect love and provisions of our Heavenly Father? (Matthew 19:26) But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Just as earthly relationships require quality intimate time to truly know each others needs and desires. A spiritual loving daily relationship with God leads to knowing His plan and will in our lives. As we continue to learn, love, and grow our needs and desires change. So do the blessings and tools needed to accomplish this joint assignment of God’s will. (Philippians 4:13) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Do you really know Jesus?
God knows everything you need, want, desire, and think. If you will just make time to be with Him. You will see that all these blessings are truly a byproduct of being in His loving presence. (Jeremiah 29:11) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
