I am a Born Again believer brought out of the practice of Catholicism beginning with the conviction of God’s Holy Spirit on “Marian” worship. When no one in the “church” parish -including the priest-could point out specifically what scripture in God’s written Word says we are to worship and use Mary (co-redeemer) as a way to Jesus to get to God (“a son always listens to his mother”-theology) I sought God through tears with my heart and soul desperate for HIS answer. This is the scripture I was brought to:
“6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
It was not easy to leave the practice of Catholicism as many of our family and friends practice it, but as one of my favorite quotes says: “Faith makes things possible…not easy.”
This whole experience has been the beginning of being taught what loving The Lord our God over everyone and everything no matter the worldly cost truly means. It IS all about God and NOT all about us and what we “feel” we should do so we don’t hurt others feelings. No. It is ALL about obeying and trusting God’s will for us. We are taught to do that not just for ourselves but so that others can come to know Him through the faith He has allowed us to share. How AWESOME is HE to do that? Too AWESOME for words! TRUST IN AND ON HIM HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING! Like His written Word says in *Isaiah 55-8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
HIS WAYS ARE NOT OUR WAYS!
I want to use this blog to share God’s Truth through Jesus The Christ alone. To be His vessel. To encourage those that are lost in this world to be found in true LIFE through our Saviour. Jesus is the only TRUTH and He is the only LIGHT to a dark, decaying world.
Jesus says “…IT IS FINISHED…” in John 19:30 He has finished what we needed for salvation as a bridge to God The Father. DONE. OVER. TRUST IN HIM.
May those that seek God’s truth with all their hearts have faith in Him knowing that He will answer a sincere heart. He answered mine-I can testify to that in many things!
(*I will not argue or debate anyone. As a Born Again believer you will not convince me that the choice the Lord gave me through His Holy Spirit on the catholic church and any religious practice beyond simplicity found in Jesus the Christ was wrong. The “veil” of religion must be dropped from one’s eyes to SEE the truth.)
