Have faith in our world

Ooh God, be with me.
Hold my hand and lead me on the right path,
to your kingdom,
heal my heart and let the holy spirit shine
strongly in me,
protect me from evil and wickedness,
be my shield,
let me not stray from your path, but bring me back
if I go astray.
Bless me.
Strengthen my faith and let me see your truth,
help me understand,
give me richly of your word, open me fully,
to its meaning,
grant me what I wish and need in my life, in accord
with your will,
open my eyes and ears to the reality of this world,
so that the wicked be revealed,
and your kingdom verified in me.

In the name of Jesus Christ, our saviour, our lord and our king.

Our world in our day is living proof that good and evil exists, and it is living proof of the struggles between good and evil. It is a constant reminder of Ephesians 6:12:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,
but against principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness in high places.

There is a near constant struggle to bring immorality into our lives, and a neverending stream of corruption. We are inundated with sins of this world, that it has
become normal and even glorified. How is it, in such a situation, that it can be so hard to believe in what is good and right, and to draw the right conclusions?
There is a battle ongoing in all our lives to corrupt us, and it is surrounding us everywhere we go. And it is getting worse, and the battle intensifies.
Even things that were unacceptable 10 years ago are now the new normal as more and more people are losing track of universal truths. The manipulation is so strong and so deep
that is changes the fabric of the way people think, and our lives. We are told there are no truths anymore, no actual right or wrong, no good and evil, that these are relative and
ever changing, by whatever authority. But if we step back and analyse who this authority is, it is quite clear that it is entirely contrary to the bible and the word of God.

There is a systematic implementation of what is contrary to to the word and law of God and in opposition to the spirit of Christ. It is in fact anti-Christian in nature. Not only
is there a war against Christianity going on, against churches and against the church, but this war is also against people, to prevent them from seeing the truth, to prevent them
from seeking and knowing the word of God and the spirit of Jesus Christ. God and Jesus Christ is blasphemed and attacked in our society.

So to the Christians, Ephesians 6:13 applies more than ever:
Wherefore take unto you the whole
armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand
in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Manipulations and lies are openly broadcast to the masses, to have them believe in the doctrines of the devil. For how can it not be the workings of the devil when it is the
antithesis to the word of God and the spirit of Jesus Christ. For this teaching is corrupting our very being, and making us into what Paul warned against, as stated in 2 Timothy 3:2-7:

For men shall be lovers of their own selves,
covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, dis-
obedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.
Without natural affection, trucebreakers,
false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of
those that are good.
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of plea-
sures more than lovers of God.
Having a form of godliness, but denying the
power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into
houses, and lead captive silly women laden with
sins, led away with divers lusts.
Ever learning, and never able to come to the
knowledge of the truth.

Make no mistake about it, these people are organized and in high places, and this is what they are turning people into. This is systematic and purposeful, no mere coincidence.
What they show and tell us is corrupting. Our countries and societies used to have values that they cherished highly, which was part of the fabric of the society, which was part
of the personalities of peoples. These have all but been deconstructed and been replaced by only one value, the highest value in the same societies: money. Even the same generation
that had values they highly cherished have now replaced these values with that of money. Money is the highest value, and even if they knew it was wrong, now they measure it in money.
And this goes for both people with and without money.

Jesus himself said it to his disciples, when the rich young man refused to give away his wealth and follow him: "Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into
the kingdom of heaven". He had a chance to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, but refused due to love of money. Matthew 19:16-30.

We are saturated with sin in our society, it is all around us and all "normal". They are even stepping things up now and turning things upside down, saying moral is immoral, immoral is moral,
good is evil, evil is good, right is wrong and wrong is right. They are not only trying to blur the lines between moral and immoral, good and evil, right and wrong, or saying these things
are not absolute, but relative, they are now trying to turn many of these things upside down, on their head, and many things that are evil, immoral and wrong, we are now being told is
good, moral and right, while many things that are good, right and moral, we are now told are evil, wrong and immoral.
All they had to do was destroy the fact of universal good, right and moral, and make this relative. Once they did that, it is easy to say anything is good or bad, without having to
worry about what is the truth. And there are absolute truths, good and evil is universal, not relative, and so is moral and right and wrong. These things are absolute truths. But when
the people can be so manipulated away from reality and the truth, they can be made to believe anything, even that a man is a woman, and a woman is a man.

They are so good at lying and manipulating and have come so far with this, that they now can make masses of people believe just about anything, and that's an extemely dangerous thing.

This is part of how they are reshaping our society and corrupting it, how they are destroying values and trying to turn evil into good. Because make no mistake about it, the evil wants to be seen
as the good, they want to be seen as right, as moral. They want to shift the conciousness of the world towards their wickedness and evil, and have the people support them, and bow down to their evil
and glorify it. And they have come a long way. People are now starting to condemn what is good, what is right and what is moral. You might think those people are stupid and what they say is stupid,
but it's not, it's corrupt, their thinking has been changed, and they are unable to know or see this. This is the battleground and spiritual evil and wickedness in high places, it's absolutely real,
and our times is proof of that.

Isaiah 5:20:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and
good evil; that put darkness for light, and light
for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet
for bitter!

2 Timothy 3:13-14:
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse
and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
But continue thou in the things which thou
hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing
of whom thou hast learned them

In our world people believe in things like simulation theory and a big bang, so how is it so difficult to believe in the wonderful creation of God? If people don't even think the world is real
and is open to the idea that it is a creation, then how can they not be open to the idea that it is the creation of God? If they believe there was nothing, and then suddenly something created
from a "big bang", "an explosion", then how is that any different than believing in the creation of God. How is it so easy to believe in a creation through an explosion, yet so difficult to
believe that is the creation of God? The creation of God is wonderful and full of mystery, so how can it be so difficult to believe that God created the machanics in this world, including
things like mutation that changes animals over time? There is not any theory where that theory is not just a part of God's creation.

Our society seems to be intent on finding ways to make sure people think it's not God's creation, but something else. And they are figuring out clever stories and myths that people can
believe in something else that created our world and universe, rather than God. But who would benefit from people not believing in God? The devil would, Satan. For God's creation is
truly marvellous and perfect, look at it, think about it, it is wonderful. But don't get that mixed up with human creation, for it is something else. It can be both good and bad, but it
can never be like the perfect creation of God. And if you were the devil, how would you use human creation to your benefit? You would corrupt it and make it bad and evil, to be ungodly
and in opposition to the will of God. The same goes for any human endevour, and that is the battlefield of good and evil. Humans have created wonderful and good things, but we also create
terrible and evil things. Not only things, but works as well, or thoughts, anything can be good or evil. The job of the devil is to make sure that what humans create and what we do is for
his benefit, that they are vile and corrupt, that they corrupt people and make them bad or evil or blind to the existance and will of God. Anything that corrupts people is to the benefit of the
devil, even if created with good intentions.

We were given this world, and we were given free will, and the wish of God is that we create something wonderful and beautiful. If we live in the accordance to the will of God, that is
the most beautiful thing we can accomplish for ourselves, our world and our society. The power of love and the harmony of love is reflected in all that is in accordance
with the will of God. But if we do not live in accordance with the will of God, the results are corrupting, not only for us, but for our world and society.

Don't be worldly people, be godly people. For to be godly is to live in harmony with God and this world.

1 John 5:3:
For this is the love of God, that we keep his
commandments: and his commandments are
not grievous

John 14:15
If ye love me, keep my commandments

The commandments of God are not burdensome, they are simple, but they make all the difference. To love God is to keep his commandments, and this is true, but not only, because
if we keep the commandments of God, we also love ourselves and this world. If we keep the commandments we do what is good for this world and for ourselves as well. The commandments are
the foundation of the law codes in our society. Most of our laws revolve around what the commandments say, and are in alot of cases covered by the simple commandments, so it is
beyond any doubt that they are benefitial to us, our world and our society. What we find just in our legal system, and what we love and take pride in regarding our laws is in essence
the ten commandments, not some seperately existing laws we created ourselves. Most our laws come from the commandments and the bible, the word of God.
But why have we abandoned some commandments? Why are we watering down the importance of some? They were all given to us, and are all important. Adultery is a serious offence, it has
victims and most likely also includes breaking other commandments at the same time. But although adultery could be considered a serious crime and extremely detrimental to our society,
it is not illegal in our legal code. This could also be seen in context with the lack of seriousness our society places on marriage, and the ease of which people can divorce.

Matthew 19:8-9:
(Jesus said:) Moses because of the
hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away
your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put
away his wife, except it be for fornication, and
shall marry another, committeth adultery: and
whoso marrieth her which is put away doth
commit adultery.

Malachi 2:16
For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that
he hateth putting away: for one covereth vio-
lence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts:
therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal
not treacherously.

For the longest time our society has more or less lived in harmony with the vision of God that we join together husband and wife and live out our lives together. That divorce is
unacceptable and adultery is a serious offence. There is a reason that things have been like this and should be like this, as it is with all the commandments and laws. You see,
one of the most beautiful things in this world is the joining of a husband and a wife, the creation of and life of a family. Family life is so fundamentally important to our society
and our lives. Satan would ofcourse want to destroy the family, marriage and the joining of husband and wife together in life, and he has come a long way in doing so. Although alot of
people still live the beautiful family life as husband and wife and raising children, it has also become a norm to divorce, and also become a norm not to marry.
We have turned the joining of man and woman into something vile, and our society is really built around glorifying a dirty and filthy alternative to the natural way of family life.
They want to replace marriage and family with continuous fornication and sin, so that we no longer live in harmony with the will of God.
Expediting divorce, making marriage less valuable in our legal system and the lack of punishment for adultery, none of these alone have destroyed the family and the beautiful
bonding of husband and wife in our society, but each of them have been detrimental to the core part of our society, which is marriage and family. But this is the job of the devil,
to slowly but steadily deconstruct what is good, and replace it, or if possible outright destroy it, and quickly if at all possible. Satan hates what is good and right, and want
to replace it with the way of the devil.
This is why the commandment is all the more important to follow, and although we might not have understood why, there is a reason God put it there for us. And furthermore, it seems
clear that God hates divorce, and that God's will for us is as stated in the marriage commitment that husband and wife join together and become one, for life. Union between husband
and wife is central to the wish of God for mankind. Take an issue like abortion, it is only considered necessary because of widespread whoremongering, fornication and sexual immorality,
the exact opposite model to that which God encourages, the union of husband and wife and the creation of the family. So form a family, and the defend the family proudly, and let the
devil not take it away. Furthermore, stay true to your promises in marriage, lest they are made in vain and the mind not clever enough to understand even something simple, or the weak
and corrupt break it nevertheless.

Genesis 2:24:
Therefore shall a man leave his father and
his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and
they shall be one flesh.

Proverbs 18:22:
Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing,
and obtaineth favour of the LORD.

Ephesians 5:33:
Nevertheless let every one of you in par-
ticular so love his wife even as himself: and the
wife see that she reverence her husband.

Advice to wives and husbands: Ephesians 5:21-33

Hebrews 13:4:
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed
undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers
God will judge.

Colossians 3:18-19:
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own
husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives, and be not bit-
ter against them.

To live in a good world, it takes living in accord with the wishes of God and to love God and the teachings and laws he gave us. To love the world truly is to live in accordance
with the wishes of God, because only then can the world truly be good for us. God gave us free will and this is the whole point, because without free will we would not be alive.
And due to free will, it is all the more important to make the right choices. God did not give us laws and teachings to decide for us, he gave them out of love for us, in the hope
that we would follow his wishes and truly accomplish for ourselves what is good and makes for a good world. The world is affected by each choice that each person in the world makes,
and the sum of this is what makes the world. So we really do have the choice to make a great world, or we even have the choice to destroy it. Although we deserve it, God promised
he will not flood the world again. We have a chance to fix this world, to make things right, to do what is right. We have a chance to have a loving and harmonious world, but we were
given free will, so it is up to us. We have to be godly and live godly lives and reject Satan and his sinful and wrong ways.
We have to cherish that which is good in this world, we have to embrace healthy ways to live, we have to do what is right for this world, we have to decide our future, we have to
build that which is good, we have to do together what is in the interest of all. The potential for a good world, in harmony with humanity and the will of God, is almost unlimited, but
we are dealing with a tyrant, the devil, and his blind and deaf minions who want to destroy all that is good, and make this world cruel, cold and dead. It is down to each of us to reject
Satan and his ways, and to embrace and love God. God does truly love this world, so much so that he gave us his son.

Jesus Christ is the fullfilment of the word of God and our faith. In Jesus Christ the word of God spread to all corners of the world and reached not thousands, not millions, but billions
of people. The full word of God, old and new is available to all that seek it and also to those that do not. So many have thus been blessed across our world and have come to embrace
the faith and the word of God. Christianity, the word and the teaching, and how it has become available to people all across our world, is nothing short of a miracle.
But it is so, and now we have it, through Jesus Christ, our saviour, not only through the teaching and the complete word of God, but available to all, across languages, across traditions,
across cultures and peoples, we now all have the choice, in every corner of the world.
Where it took the strongest hold, can also be considered the parts of the world where society has been most successfull by most ways of measuring success, also worldly evaluations,
and philosophical. The judeo chistian world is unrivalled in terms of success, and far beyond what most others can dream of. The full word of God has shaped our society and is integral
to everything in our society from our legal code, to our values and overall way of life. It is Christianity that made our society possible, it is the word of God that enabled it, and
Jesus Christ that completed it. Our society is so funamentally Christian, that you can divide the world between those based on the bible, and those who aren't. Although some non-biblical
societies have been embraced by and strongly influenced by biblical societies, and have accomplished some success because of this, they are exceptions and their success is limited.
In terms of how well of a society is in this world, it seems to be directly correleate to their embrace of the word of God, how strong their faith have been and for how long. That
which is good in our society is derived from the word of God. It is simple really, and to argue otherwise is dishonest. It is as if God blesses those societies that believe in him.
All the worse and graver the warning that peoples are now trying to deconstruct the societies of God, and decouple our societies from the word of God, and try to remove peoples
faith, and even faith grown cold. There are coordinated attacks against God in our society, an unrelentless war against our own selves and against our own society and fundamentally
that which makes our society good. This could have terrible consequences and horrible ramifications. It could spread and accelerate and destroy our society as we know it. Slowly remove
that which is good in our society, and replace it with something else. It seems this effort is highly organized and purposefully executed against our own people and against our own
society. If most people cannot dissert between that which is good and evil, right and wrong and moral and immoral, then we have no defence against that which is evil, wrong and immoral.
It can spread and infect our society freely, without opposition, without a counter-force. This is why we have to come to faith again, and why we have to strengthen our faith, and if we
do, we will enshrine in us what is good, what is right and what is moral. For us it is imperative that we preserve what is good in our society and desirable that we become better,
that we cast away wrongdoings and repent of our sinful ways, that we rebuke evil in our society. Is it not a wish that we strive for and become better rather than worse?
It is we that are responsible for this, not God. He might shift his blessings elsewhere if our society becomes ungodly, immoral and wicked. Perhaps another society will be
godly and blessed, while we will be destroyed and destructive.

Our biblical "Christian/Jewish" heritage is basically what we hold dear about our own society, that which we have been proud of, and even boasted about and proclaimed as
better about our societies than others, Christians and non-Christians alike, everyone have cherished our Christian society and the fruits of this society. This is what
our identity is, and do we really want to lose our own identity?
It seems most people don't understand the seriousness and gravity of this situation, how quick and bad our decline could be, and how harsh it could be to lose our blessings.
We don't know the depths of corruption and destruction such a change would bring about. But if we look at our times and the work of the wicked, we can already see the beginnings
of the consequences.

Titus 3:3:
For we ourselves also were sometimes fool-
ish. disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts
and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hate-
ful, and hating one another.

1 Corinthians 2:14:
But the natural man receiveth not the
things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolish-
ness unto him: neither can he know them,
because they are spiritually discerned.

Galatians 5:19-21:
Now the works of the flesh are manifest,
which are these; Adultery, fornication, unclean-
ness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emu-
lations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revel-
lings, and such like: of the which I tell you
before, as I have also told you in time past, that
they which do such things shall not inherit the
kingdom of God.

2 Timothy 3:16:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for
correction, for instruction in righteousness.

To the Christians
Put on the whole armour of God, embrace your faith and view the world through your faith, rather than your faith through the world. Put your faith above worldly things as is intended, and understand
that which is most important. Do not be afraid, for you are justified. Study the full word of God and embrace who you are. Let the light shine in you, and talk among one another so that you might become
the light of this world. Study that which is godly, through the word of God and each other. Jesus is your saviour, your king and your lord and his life and spirit is what made and sustain our faith. We
were saved by his grace and so has come to know God and the word of God.
Be proud of your faith and embrace it with your whole heart and let it become who you are in this world and beyond. Through the full word of God and the Spirit of Jesus Christ you have all the knowledge
of how to live and be in this world. So speak openly with the world and interact freely with those around you, and you will be a light in this world. Read the word of God and teach one another. Live
godly lives together and invite others. Do not hide away and fear this world for God is with you. Do not fear the wicked and ignorant, but invite them to understand. It is not up to you to accept the
truth on their behalf. But be always mild and gentle and kind as is befitting.
Embrace your faith or come to your faith and understand it, study who you are, do not neglect the word of God, the church or prayer, but prioritise it instead. The world is full of wickedness, evil and sin,
so come together and be the light as you have been called to be through Jesus Christ. Take on your place in the world.
That which is good where you live, do not let it be taken away easily, but stand up for it and defend it, for you are the judges of this world, so appointed in humility and knowledge of that which is
just and true and right. Without you, the world will falter.

To the Jews
You are the chosen people of God. It is clear and undeniable that you are, even in the eyes of the world, if they care to look. The Jewish people and the people of Israel are extraordinary, and to
deny that would be be to deny reality. Even in worldy measures the contributions and accomplishment of this chosen people are clear for all to see, all who have eyes to see, and ears to hear. It is
a small people with a big place in the world, and there is no obvious reason as to why. But being the chosen people, comes with great responsibilities and even more severe judgements. It should be clearer
to the Jewish people than anyone else the many times they have fallen away from faith and into sin and received harsh punishment from God. Time and time again this has happened, throughout their history,
even to the extent they lost their home and were scattered across the world. Their pride and their sins were destroyed again and again. So full of sin and falling away from faith is their history, that
if they had not been the chosen people of God, that he loves, they would probably no longer exist. Time and again they repeated the same mistakes.
Do not cower and hide away from the truth, just to claim it is not so. But study it and then claim it is not so unless you want to be unjustified. Open your hearts and minds to the complete word of God,
or at the very least your eyes and ears, and then consider for yourself if it is. For you have fallen away from faith so many times and lived in sin and been judged for it, openly there for all the
world to see. But your hearts are not hardened beyond, and your sins not too great, for you to be saved from them.
You of so little faith, how can it be so. Embracing traditions and a shallow illusion of faith, above faith itself, pretending to believe but having a heart without belief. You have rejected your own faith
and put traditions and rituals in its place. Arrogantly whispering among yourselves that God does not exist and the faith is not real, but in the world going through the motions of pretending to be
people of that very faith which you reject. It is time for you to come to faith again, and embrace who you truly are, it is time for you to read the bible, including the new testament, and the full
word of God. You are the chosen people of God and our faith is real, the word of God is real and very much alive, more relevant than ever. So what hope do we have in this world if not even the chosen
people of God have faith?

To the others
It is time to consider what is real and what is not. Have we made wrong choices? What truly is right and wrong? Are we being made fools, and why is the world like it is, and what kind of world do we want?
Philosophical examination and investigation is not wrong, but a sign of a healthy mind, and not dependent on intelligence. Any man can and should think, and if there is something to think about, think about
it as much as possible and for as long as possible. You can ask for God's help to think about it too. How can it hurt to invite God into your life? Irregardless of your circumstances, your beliefs and convictions.
Don't be afraid to just ask God or invite God into your life, that's all. But if you are curious, open your heart and invite God into your life truly, and see what happens.
Your life, your circumstances, where you are, it does not matter.
But do not choose evil or wicked ways, hurting others and the world, but if you have and if you do, it is not too late to change. We all live in this world together, and it is the sum of all of us, and your
contribution just might make this world a worse place or contribute to what is wrong. But it doesn't have to be like that. You don't have to be like that. Many bad people have changed their ways, and
become good, and many good people have changed their ways and become bad. But what do you want for this world? Not for yourself, but for the world. Do you want to see the world burn, or do you want it to thrive?
Or do you only truly care about yourself? Why do you only care about yourself? Are you not better than an animal?
Anyone can think and anyone can make choices. And the exceptions is not the point, if all you want to do is strife and argue, then you can start by doing it with yourself in your own mind instead of always arguing
with others. Just for the sake of arguing, do it with yourself.

God be with me,
hold my hand and lead me on your path.
Strengthen the holy spirit in me.
Shield me from evil and wickedness,
and let me not go astray.
Bless me.
Strengthen my faith.
Show me the truth and let me understand.
Help me embrace your words.
Take me to your kingdom, for this world is wicked.

In Jesus Christ I pray,

Peace be with you, and may the blessings of God come upon you, and the spirit of Jesus Christ fill you.
