Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever.
We therefore see the real dividing line between mankind, is not based on sex, caste, skin colour or ethnicity, it is based on those who have accepted the truth about themselves as sinners before a righteous God and in doing so received the truth about God by the redeeming power of Jesus Christ
In the light of scripture, we also understand that Jesus’ second coming is not about coming to keep a check on evil that’s getting out of hand in the world. On the contrary, we are to hasten His second coming by exercising righteousness in the world (2Pet 3:11-12) because the groom will only come for His bride/Church when she is ready, and the Almighty Holy Spirit is absolutely competent is making sure this happens.
The peace we are therefore looking for, lies in finding our purpose in God, and that lies in reflecting the light of His nature (which is His Law), even in the midst of the darkness of this world, because we were after all made/restored in His image

From the fall of Adam, man by nature is a sinnerContinue reading “The Significance of Resurrection Sunday aka Easter Sunday”
There is however no fulfillment in fornication, theft, murder, covetousness, avarice, bearing false witness, gossip and drunkenness but mankind from the fall of Adam tries to find fulfillment in these things, as though our life’s purpose was in these things.
If you are coming to faith you must be prepared to give up anything and everything, if that is the price you have pay to come to faith, that is provided if you want to, which is provided if God is drawing you to believe in His Son Jesus Christ
The Bible however says God is looking for those who will worship him in Spirit and Truth. For instance, as God did with Peter, He did also with Job, in handing him over to Satan to be sifted, that when Satan is through with him, Job/Peter may come forth as gold and return to strengthen their brothers/friends
God has decreed His called-out-ones (Ecclesia/Church) to conform to Jesus/God’s nature at the earliest. This nature is the very law of God that is written on the believer’s heart, which makes us a new creation in Christ
