Heavens Access Point (part two)

Loyal
Heavens Access Point (part two)

God is NOT the “SUN” he is only “LIKE” the sun.

Psa 84:11 THE LORD GOD IS LIKE THE SUN that gives us light. He is like a shield that keeps us safe. The LORD blesses us with favor and honor. He doesn't hold back anything good from those whose lives are without blame. (NiRV)

People way back in biblical times, and I am sure there are those today who worship the sun as God. Isn't that just like the devil, to deceive people into worshiping graven images, and things created instead of the one who created them.

Knowing that God is “like” the sun, we can come to some conclusions about scriptures that don't seem to make any sense.

Jer 23:23 "AM I ONLY A GOD WHO IS NEARBY?" announces the LORD. "AM I NOT A GOD WHO IS ALSO FAR AWAY?
Jer 23:24 Can anyone hide in secret places so that I can't see him?" announces the LORD. "Don't I fill heaven and earth?" announces the LORD. (NiRV)

How can God be nearby, and not far away? How can God be far away, and not nearby? How can God be nearby, and far away at the same time? If he is nearby, how can he be far away? If he is far away then how he be nearby? Which is it, is God nearby or is he far away or is he both? This makes no sense at all unless we know how the nature of God is in the spiritual realm, then it makes perfect sense!

It makes no difference if God is near us, or far away or both because he knows what is happening on planet earth, and he knows everything we do in secret.

The sun at its closet distance from the earth is 93 million miles away. Even though the sun is millions of miles away (far away) we are always living in its presence (nearby) because of the “light” that shines upon us every day. The sun is far away, and nearby all at the same time!! The sun is at “REST” out in space, and the earth orbits around it. Its light is always shining out in all directions throughout the known galaxy.

God is like the sun as he is far away, and he is also nearby.

He is near the brokenhearted.

Psa 34:18 THE LORD IS NEAR TO THE BROKENHEARTED and saves the crushed in spirit.

The Lord is far away from the wicked.

Pro 15:29 THE LORD IS FAR FROM THE WICKED, but he hears the prayer of the righteous.

When a Christian “FEELS” like God is far away, they can be comforted by the fact that his light (which equals his presence) is always upon them! No one can escape the presence of God no matter where they hide.

James 4:8 Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Notice: The reason a person needs to draw near to God is that they are not close to God. The reason why is because of unconfessed sin (Cleanse your hands, you sinners), and not having their heart, and mind set on the things of the Spirit. ( purify your hearts, you double-minded.)

You can not walk in the “flesh”, and feel close to God!

If God is “like” the sun, and we are always living in his presence because of his light, yet the sun is 93 million miles away, how can a person draw near to God who is a lot farther away?

If a person does not believe they can do something then they will never try. You can not go where you have no faith to go, and if you have no faith to go it is only because we have a lack of information. It is from the “knowledge of God” (word of God) that gives us faith to believe.

Getting “access” to the throne of God is only possible by knowing we were given access and the information required in how to gain “faith” that gives us this access!

Eph 2:18 For through him WE BOTH HAVE ACCESS BY ONE SPIRIT UNTO THE FATHER.
Eph 2:19 Now, therefore, ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

Without the Holy Spirit, we would have no access to the Father who is sitting upon his throne!

Heb 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, BOLDNESS TO ENTER INTO THE HOLIEST BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS,
Heb 10:20 BY A NEW AND LIVING WAY, which he hath CONSECRATED for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

If Jesus did not make a way (highway) for us through the shedding of his blood upon the cross we would have no access to God! The word, “ CONSECRATED” means, “to dedicate, to make new”. When there was no way, Jesus made a way (highway)

Having the Holy Spirit, and having a new living highway into God's presence which Jesus made for us, we would not be able to experience his Kingdom without one thing that makes it all possible.

Eph 3:11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
Eph 3:12 In whom WE HAVE BOLDNESS AND ACCESS WITH CONFIDENCE BY THE FAITH OF HIM.

Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Rom 5:2 By whom also WE HAVE ACCESS BY FAITH INTO THIS GRACE wherein we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Faith is the only “KEY” that allows us “ACCESS” to actually experience God's throne!!!

Having enough faith is not a problem because our faith is from Jesus. The problem is in our choice to not believe what scripture says!!!
