Message from the Monthly Flyer from April 2015
Lord has not abandoned us in a state where we have to think out a plan
for our own lives. In the contrary, from the very beginning, God has
always has a plan for our lives. When we look at the sky and consider
the works of His hands, such as the sun, the moon and the stars, we
see that each one of them is set in its respective orbit and follows
a specific path. Then we understand that God is a God of order. He directs
everything and controls all things.
When we look at God’s plan, we can see that not only did He set a specific
order in the universe, but He has also determined a path that His people
can follow. As we consider the precision and the exactitude that rule
in the creation, we stand amazed and must acknowledge God’s omniscience
and power. And at the same time it makes us think about how glorious
can the One be who created all these things.
As Moses was about to built the tabernacle in the desert, God spoke
to him and told him to make sure that he does everything according to
the pattern that would be shown to him on the mountain (Hebrew 8, 5).
If God is so much concern about building the tabernacle correctly according
to His plan, then it is not surprising that He also has a plan for His
people that He took out of the world so that they can walk with Him.
So then, it is quite amazing that many religious people who claim to
be close to God reject such a plan. They would rather adhere to the
ideas that are acceptable for the human understanding.
Human beings have always had a problem believing things that are beyond
their knowledge and understanding and they simply reject the old ways
of God. We neither understand nor perceive God’s knowledge, power and
possibilities. We can only grasp them by faith and say: let it be as
He says. Jesus Christ is the founder of the Church. The Apostles were
directed to build the Church according to His will. The Apostles and
the Church revealed His plan in the first century and built all other
local churches according to that plan (Apg. 2, 4 and 2, 38-47).
Falling out or turning away from the original faith to adhere to another
so-called faith is not something that happens suddenly but rather progressively.
Even today, many people still reject the basic teachings of the Apostles
because they feel more comfortable with their beliefs. Compromises with
the views of the world can really damage the faith and harm the believer.
There is no modern way or modern faith and it is not possible to talk
about any “old way” because there is only ONE FAITH and this faith is
always up to date. rw
