Why does Yahweh want us to prepare for the Kingdom of Yahweh?
How do we go about preparing to meet our Creator?
I pose these questions to get you to think. Some of us know the answers and some have not a clue. I’m not writing to give you a clear cut guide to these answers, but I do want to share my testimony. So you can have an idea of what you can do to search out and discover the major questions of this life for yourself.
Yahweh grants each of us seventy years to get to know Him and to find our way back to Him. Some of us die earlier and others live significantly longer due to how we take care of our physical and spiritual bodies, due to genetics and other variables unique to each of us. As a science major I know the intricate details of our bodies down to the molecular level–microscopic level. I want us to look beyond the physical to search out and discover a supernatural and spiritual God that works and lives within each of us if we allow Him into our life.
What must we know to walk successfully back to Yahweh?
We must walk by faith not by sight. We must use our spiritual eyes, ears and bodies to search for Yahweh with all our heart, mind and soul. We must believe that He is real and His word is true to discover Him for ourselves. We ought to test Him by seeing if His promises to us are real.
For instance as a very young person in my early teens I prayed and asked Yahweh to help me get my own home by the age of twenty eight.
I wasn’t only thinking about myself. My main concern was ensuring that my parents had a place to retire in without a monthly rent.
You see my parents emigrated to this country with five children and started their lives over in a foreign land: here in America. My father lost both parents within forty days of each other. He took his father’s advice to take his family to a new country. As a young person, I knew the struggles they faced. I noticed everything; however, I grew up very happy and carefree. I had all that I needed and wanted. We were blessed in that we always had a roof over our heads and three meals a day. We actually had plenty compared to many other families. Both my parents were very hard workers and they sacrificed so their now six kids succeed in life.
Though their lives were much better and easier in their own country they determined to not return and make it work because they knew the lives of their six children would be better here in America.
One day in the summer I prayed with a sincere and earnest heart at the age of about thirteen or fourteen that Yahweh would help me to somehow get my own place and not need to rent before the age of twenty-eight.
Yahweh answered my prayer in a supernatural way when I acquired a home long story short just before my twenty-seventh birthday. It’s the home my parents are now retired in today living rent free and mortgage free thanks to Yahweh answering my prayers so many years ago. Yahweh heard the prayer of a humble teenager so many years ago. He has heard and answered innumerable prayers from an early age and even today.
God is no respecter of persons. What He has done for me He will do for any of His children who seek Him with a sincere heart and obey His words.
Knowing and understanding Yahweh’s words to us will help us prepare ourselves to successfully acquire the keys to the Kingdom of Yahweh rather than meeting rejection by a Holy God.
John said in Revelation 22:13-20 says the following:
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
Yehsua Jesus is coming quickly to judge the world. Prepare for His coming and avoid being tossed out like a dog. Dogs are not welcome, nor murderers or idolaters nor those who love to lie–see Revelation 22:15. The word dog triggered my thoughts penned here today to share with you. Let’s take a look at the word dog and it’s meaning from Strong’s Concordance.
Avoid the Dogs: literally, a dog, scavenging canine; (figuratively) a spiritual predator who feeds off others. In Strong’s Concordance a dog is kyon pronounced phonetically (koo-ohn)–2965 in Strong’s Concordance. A dog is universally despised in the East. A loose dog was disdained in ancient times and viewed as a “mooch pooch” that ran about as a scavenger says Strong’s Concordance.
I hope you aren’t living your life like a dog–living in a predatory fashion. You should connect with the life giver and get your resources from your connection and relationship with Yahweh through the power of His Holy Spirit. You ought to feed others and not feed off of others. Those truly connected to the life giver will possess the life giver within them. They will be like a tree planted by the living water. Their leaf will never wither–Psalm 1.
In conclusion as a young person I prepared to acquire a home for myself and family. So we could live more bountifully in the physical world, but now I’m preparing for my spiritual home. I’m not leaving anything to chance. I know if I prepare well, Yahweh will help me acquire a home in the spiritual kingdom. I know how to acquire my spiritual home. I just need to ask Yahweh for what I want, and He will here my humble prayers and answer me.
Remember Yahweh is no respecter of person, He will answer you too if you love Him with all your heart, mind and soul. Obedience is the key. I leave you to ponder the following verses below in John 14:12-16:
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
That Comforter, Yahweh’s Holy Spirit, will teach you all things and guide you into your Heavenly Home that is rent free and mortgage free. Don’t you want to live eternally with your Heavenly Father that loves you so much that He took the time to create you in His image? Don’t you want to see Him face to face? Your future tomorrow depends on your preparation today my friends! Ask God to help you acquire a place and a home in His kingdom–ask today and everyday until you know for sure that God hears you. This world is nothing compared to acquiring your place in your real home in the presence of Yahweh. Prepare for the kingdom my friend and you will eternally be grateful!
