Spiritual Blame Misplaced
Spiritual Blame MisplacedOne of the biggest mistakes if not the biggest mistake, that people make, is the placing blame on God for their problems or the problems of the world.
The first error is in refusing to learn the how, and where, and why’s of how this world works.
The second error is refusing to learn the how, and where, and why’s of how this world works.
So, we begin. That is, assuming that you are not going to comply with the above refusals, and therefore never learn anything.
First, God is perfect.
Second, God does not cause the problems of the world.
People cause all of the problems or bring them on to themselves by means of their refusal to get in line with Gods plan.
This is the devils world. The world is filled with evil and the basics of evil. People are born with the sin nature within them.
This world is filled with distractions and attractions that entice or lead them away from God, and as such people choose for those distractions, and against God.
When problems occur, then they blame God, but in fact it is you (people in general), who are the blame, not God.
Hebrews 4:16, Come boldly before the throne of grace.
But what does that even mean, and how do you do that?
First, you have to belong to God, that is, believe in Christ and therefore be saved, and therefore belong to Gods family. This makes you a Christian. It only takes one simple thought, one time in your life, to be saved. Father (God the Father). I believe in Jesus Christ.
Once you have done this, then you are in Gods family and therefore eligible for Gods blessings.
But, not there yet. You have to grow up in your now newly acquired spiritual life.
So, live in fellowship (the environment of Gods presence), and learn Bible doctrine (the building blocks of the structure of your soul).
Salvation takes but a single thought. Spiritual growth is a daily, moment by moment process that occurs day after day throughout your life, while you are in fellowship.
Oh yes, fellowship is achieved when you confess your sins to God the Father (and to no one else).
Confession is: Father is have sinned, I have done this and that and this and that, and you continue until you finish your list of sins. Once confessed your sin is erased and forgotten (by God) and never needs to be repeated.
But then, you are still alive in this devils world and will no doubt sin again, so you confess again and again, day after day because you do sin, whether you admit it or not, and there are no doubt many forgotten sins that you cannot remember.
Even forgetting God and forgetting your confession and forgetting to do your daily bible studies, while not specifically sins, will lead to the sins of laziness, sins of disobedience, sins of not complying with Gods mandates of confession and daily study.
So, once saved, and once you get on a daily pattern of compliance (confession and study), then you begin to grow up in your spiritual life and life within Gods environment.
This is when your life will change dramatically. You are now in Gods crosshairs and not the crosshairs of the world.
Does the world go away? No.
The world is still there and the world will target you in so many ways and will bring problems into your life in its attempt to get you to turn away from God.
This is now the Job test within you. Job did not falter, so you too, need to be tough and not falter.
Spiritual growth comes from learning doctrine.
Doctrine builds up spiritual resources within your soul.
Spiritual resources build up spiritual muscle.
Spiritual muscle builds up faith.
All of this combines together and brings you boldly before the throne of grace.
And this does not stop there.
