Probably a dumb question

Loyal
What does it mean to truly seek God?
Read your Bible beginning form "Genesis clear through to Revelation" and don't skip no words you don't understand. The Word of GOD is GOD right?

The Beginning (John 1)BSB
"1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning. 3Through Him all things were made, and without Him nothing was made that has been made.…"

You do believe, what "The WORD of GOD" says? Now could it be that simple but yet hard. You mean, I got to read all of that? Yep!:p You ask for a guide.

If i ask you to run around the house 3 times and light 3 candles and jump up and down and wave your hands in the air and say "holy.Holy and close your eyes and tap your heels 10 times would you do that?

I guess it would be easier than to read your Bible from "GENESIS to REVELATION" and skip no words that you do not understand. You choose. Get A "Webster Collegiate dictionary" and get busy and stop wasting Time!:p You are trying slip out already> be careful what you ask for!

Don't you grow no Red "Horn" on your head, directed at me! get Busy! And do what you are supposed to do. "Pick up" and READ! I got some more stuff, and let me know when you get to the "Promise LAND".


No that is no dumb QUESTION! "Probably a dumb question"

But you got the right answer :eyes: But One thing you are not going to regret is. If you carry out this "Mission" and Finish it! Finish and it should take you no more than 3 weeks! And that is the slow route.

So basically like he said I just need to start reading and believing

What does The BIBLE say:

(Psalm 119)NKJV
? BETH
9How can a young man cleanse his way?
By taking heed according to Your word.
10With my whole heart I have sought You;
Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!
11Your word I have hidden in my heart,
That I might not sin against You.
12Blessed are You, O Lord!
Teach me Your statutes.
13With my lips I have declared
All the judgments of Your mouth.
14I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,
As much as in all riches.
15I will meditate on Your precepts,
And Psalm 119 NKJVcontemplate Your ways.
16I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.



Go read your Bible, Just read it, Don't study it the 1st time just read it. It is a big large story. Simple.

God does not make people an "ATHEIST", people do! God does not make people confused, "people do".

It means that everything else in your life is meaningless and the only thing you want is His presence with you. Once you have stood in the presence of the Lord it's like an addiction
that you will always want to be in that spot forever.
It's a feeling of agape Love that is undefinable and you want it more than life itself.
Seek and ye shall find!!!

How do one learn The voice of GOD, if One have never been taught the sound, "for satan himself appears as a Angel of Light" For Satan is The "PERFECT DECEIVER" created by GOD! A Perfect ADVERSARY, Design By GOD to be at "WAR" with you!:eyes: "Tom Cruise" IMP ain't got nothing on SATAN.
Especially That "STAR DUST" Satan carries in his pocket! Let Him "SPRINKLE" some of that around you in the AIR!:eyes: ....Or That "Kool AID" he carries around in That "Satchel" and the sweetener He sweeten it with. "stolen Waters"are sweet! you better stay on "The PATH" and stop listening to those "VOICES"! The Devil do have Horns on his head, "he is a ANGEL" and He looks and talks like one too!:eyes: .....

I all ready told you he is "The PERFECT DECEIVER" CREATED BY GOD:eyes: YOU BETTER Read THAT BOOK, SATAN like women:eyes: He knows how to daze y'all ! With "Trinkets" and "Red Sparkle Shoes":eyes:

What does The BIBLE say: You start listening to those "voices" they are going lock you up!:eyes:

You can jump around waving your hands in the air all you want too, Now days they want you pop pills in your mouth and send you to "The Looney House" strap down. Talking about you heard voices. It was the voice of GOD! When they get through with you, you will be "Speaking in Tongues":eyes:

Yes, but spend time in seeking prayer. Ask for his presence to flow over you and to give you comfort. Ask for His love to envelope you as a cloud. Seek that person to person relationship
just as one that is madly in love with Him. Obsessed. He did say "Seek and ye shall find" and He is true to His word. You will find him.
I would never put the Bible on a back burner but the relationship with the Lord is not in reading a book. It is a personal thing between you and Him. That relationship takes precedence
over reading.
However; we are to study to show ourselves approved as workmen that need not be ashamed, and in doing so you will be led to the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,
and it/He will set you free.
Prayer first. As Peter and the other early Apostles spent most all their time in prayer during the early years of the Church. New testament hadn't been written yet.
Reading second.

As a side note when I was first called he would wake me up at night and I knew to look at the clock and I would hear just one word like Jeremiah. This would correlate with a chapter and verse
in the Bible so I would get up, (not always unreluctantly, sometimes 3 times a night,) and read it. I found that when I could not hear Him as the mind was to busy, he would speak when the
mind was at rest. In reading what he gave me I found these to either be answers to searching questions, or orders, if you will, to ask for what I did not know to ask for.

One night it was Jeremiah at 3:33, there is no 3:33, it only goes to 25. So off to 33:3 it was and there as an order from God it says:

CALL UNTO ME, AND I WILL ANSWER THEE, AND SHOW THEE GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS, THOU KNOWEST NOT.

The following 2 yrs were a blur. Be prepared for once it begins it will never stop. But you will never be happier.

P.S. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Your yearning to know him is his calling to seek him!!

Not exactly. Jesus is the Messiah, not Moses. Become grounded in the words that Jesus said, and have faith that God will lead you. It helps to have brothers and sisters in the Lord IRL.

Not forsaking our assembly, as some are accustomed: but comforting one another, and so much the more as you see the day approaching.​
(Hebrews 10:25 DRB)​

Of course one must find a group with which one can assemble. It's not as easy as one might think.

Rhema

And it depends what you read. I would suggest this New Testament:

What does it mean to truly seek God?

I would offer no man of his own volition could seek (impossible) unless empowered by the knowledge of will of God who works in us. . we then empowered to can seek after him


.No power of God, no faith of God coming from the gospel. no seeking Gods understanding


Roman 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Some times it is wise for babies to consume just milk
Or come to birth before giving the milk. Or "Fertilized" the seed in good ground then it sprouts. Then milk.

The Parable of the Growing Seed

"He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground...Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. ..As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.

In order to believe God one must be powered by Christ labor of Love or work of His faith that does work in those to both will and empower a person .

Not one of their own volition can come unless the father as it is written draws them.

He must first give us his understanding then we can seek after Him. Some come willfully other like Jonas . He had to drag all the way

Once we understand he know us as a witness of His Spirit is empowering us the burden is lighter knowin we are on the sude of God and not our own powerless flesh and blood.

Philippians 2:13-14King James Version For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

This Parable is even a hard Parable to those who "believe"! but not "Those who Have Been "Chosen"! I could get Deep, But it might cause some, a "Nose Bleed":pensive:

Jesus said:
American Standard Version
If I told you earthly things and ye believe not, how shall ye believe if I tell you heavenly things?
I would offer the milk of the word teaches us God is gracious While the meat or bread would indicates the power of the word that works in us to both will and empower us to do his will according to his good pleasure.

1 Peter 2:1-3 King James VersionWherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

The disciples were given the faith to believe they could do the work as the father worked in them. Milk can be the introduction to one prayer life .Helping a person prepare for the meat where strength comes from.

John 4:33-3King James VersionTherefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
