Much More Than Anyone Knows

Much More Than Anyone Knows 
by David Brenneman 

"Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the Lord, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:6-9

"So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it." ‭‭Isaiah 55:11

I have been around for some time and have seen, have met, many in my life. From the plain unbelieving to the demon possessed. Have heard many excuses as to why people don't want to believe in God from simple denial to anger about it.  

As I told one last doesn't matter what people choose to accept or deny...the Bible, which has indeed withstood the tests of time...will be proven right, true and accurate. The Word of God will indeed be completely found to be fully accomplished at the end of time shortly after the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ.  

In no way during the final judgment...actually in no way at the Behma seat for Believers...does Jesus ever ask a single person a single question to clarify their thoughts or intentions for any moment of their lives for which they are giving an account.  

Jesus isn't interested in our opinions of His Word...He wants our obedience to His Word.  

Whether or not a person wants to accept the Word of God as factual or true is irrelevant. Dying without Jesus as your Savior and Lord you immediately wake up in torment in Hell. That too is the Word of God. 

Whether you want to accept the Bible for what it is or are after picking out the parts you like and tossing the rest...the whole Bible as written and protected by the Spirit of God will come to bear on the lives of all human beings.  

For hundreds of years of writing in the Old Testament, the coming of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, was foretold in detail. Yet the Jewish leaders didn't catch it. Guess what? Their belief or unbelief didn't change or alter the outcome. Jesus still came. Satan could do nothing to prevent it. Satan tried on many occasions to try to kill Jesus as an infant and probably throughout His early years. He knew full well who Jesus was and where His life was the cross. To his defeat. 

Whether or not people choose to believe will not change the outcome of human history. 

How human history plays out will always fit the plan and purpose for humans as written by God through those chosen by Him to do so. We are not going to 'rise above' the coming judgment of God as written. 

This is what is meant in Isaiah 55:11. His perfect will WILL be accomplished. He intends to seek and save the lost until the last who will be born that are to be saved are saved. Nobody will stop this from happening. 

No government ideologies are going to stop the will of God. Read the beginnings of the Gospels...governments tried to find and kill Jesus.  

Jesus told all of us truth.

Truth that includes knowing that we battle not against flesh and blood. We are in a Spiritual war. Lives are on the line. Where people spend eternity is at stake. Cultivating lives that are growing in Christ Jesus is what's important..

Oh my Dear Reader there's much more going on in your world than you know. Jesus is working all things together for your He defines it. We're to be ready and obedient in what He gives you and I to be doing. Our definitions of right and good aren't what Jesus sees them as. 

Take time to pray a prayer that Jesus opens your eyes to see what you're really here for. It's not at all about peace and prosperity. It's not about a slice of Heaven here on Earth. It's about our obedience in growing in Christ and doing what He's called you to be doing. To become more like Christ every day. 

Pray for eyes to see, ears to hear what the Spirit has to show you and tell you. Then pray for your obedience in that. 

In Proverbs it says that the fool says in his heart that there is no God. This does not alter the outcome of the Word of God concerning those who take that stance. There's millions of the foolish waking up in Hell every single second. All who are there are fully aware of the truth that there IS a God and that His Word is what was and is right and true...not their opinion.

Pray for all whom the Spirit brings to your mind. There are those who need a prayer to push them in the right direction towards Jesus. Jesus said that prayer would be needed to do what's necessary in the lives of demon possessed people. Jesus taught His Disciples how to pray with priorities...His Father's priorities. 

Take time today to stop n listen. 
Make it a habit. Start.

Oh there's much much more in store for you and I than we know or can fathom. 

Jesus is waiting on our obedience.
