A dozen years ago when I was living a worldly lustful life with all it’s desires (drugs, free sex, gambling), I thought living before God would not exciting. The Word says dress modestly proper and unexpensive, not to wear golds or pearls (1 Tim 2:9), men has to have short cut hair and women long hair because the long hair is their covering (1Cor.11:13–15), not to persue our own benefit, be content with only having food and clothing (1Tim.6:7–12), may not be conceited (Job4:6), may not lie (Rev.21:27), may not be jealous (Job3:16), may not be lazy, may not be wandering about from house to house, may not be tattler and busybodies… (1Tim.5:13).
Life would be unattractive.
May not repay anyone evil for evil (Rom.12:17–21), giving to those who ask us and may not reject the one who wants to borrow from us (Matt.5:42), treating others as more important than our selves (Phil.2:3), accepting our selves being defrauded (1Cor.6:7), feeling blessed when people revile, persecute, or say evil things falsely against us for God’s sake (Matt.5:11), may not resisting the evil doer (Matt.5:39), zealous for good works (Titus 2:11–14), love the enemy (Matt.5:43–48), the wife let not depart from her husbund, if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband (1Cor.7:11), and many more….
That is all really hard to apply. I almost broken all of them.
Not to mention Christ’s follower will be persecuted (2Tim 3:12).
Can I endure being insulted, expeled and persecuted because of God?
But God is wondrous. When I was at the lowest point of my life, He touched me in the deepest of my heart with love. That was a calling I couldn’t refuse.
His love was so strongly calling me.
And I fell in His arms, helpless in His love. Cried out for a rescue. Willing to leave wordly lust and all it’s desires. Willing to be taught…
That was when I realize that no one, no matter how strongly the world binds him, could resist God’s calling. His love is too strong.
Moreover, by the grace of God, on December 21st 2006, I experienced something awesome. That day, through Deu. 4:15–16 and John14:6–7 The Holy spirit showed me that Jesus in John 14:6–7 is the YHWH in Deu 4:15–16 (John.15:26, 16:13–15, 5:46, 17:11, Zechariah 14:9, Acts 2:36, Phillipians 2:5–11, Daniel 7:13–14), and so images and sculptures made to conceive the image of Jesus are idols. With God’s help and guidance, I wrote a testimony, titled: “Devil’s Deception Revealed, The Truth That Will Make You Free”. (lilytestimony.blogspot.com )
Then in around mid 2008, God showed me the light in Acts 17:29–31 :
Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
The special experience that happened to me on Dec 21 2006 became the key to see the light in Acts 17:29–31.
Now God commands all men everywhere to repent!
And then at the end of March 2009 and early April 2009, God gave me His amazing wisdom, with the revealing of the prophecy in Acts 17:29–31 with the truth received on Dec 21 2006 as the key, is proving that Acts 17:29–31 is true. Therefore, Jesus’s Godhead is proven. And it is true that The Father had raised Him from the dead (v.31) .
This is what Christ crucified and died for, so that He would be raised by The Father from the death, to be a proof to all people by the time the wisdom is revealed.
Now, I knew really that Christ had died on the cross thousand years ago is to work on His Father’s wisdom in a mystery that prophecied on 1 Cor.2:7–8. The wisdom revealed in this age, so that become a proveness that Jesus was really crucified, proved that The Father had raised Him from the dead and proved that Jesus is the Godhead as written in Acts 17:29–31. This thing was done for the reconciliation of the people who believes when the wisdom of God in the mystery revealed (Hebrew 9:26, Rom.10:9, 3:25, 1 John 2:2).
The wisdom that was planned for the purpose of salvation (Isaiah 33:6).
Jesus had sacrificed Himself at the cross to work on the will of His Father, the wisdom of God in a mystery, which is the evidence of truth (John 18:37, 1 Pet.1:20,21). This is the testimony of Jesus (John 5:36, Rev.19:10) to tell to the world (Psalms 49:2–4).
With God’s guidance I wrote the testimony of wisdom in several tittles, including: “Good News! Salvation Has Really Come! Saved By Grace Through Faith”,”The TRUTH That Make You Free”,”An Open Letter To All Religious Communities”, “We Are Not Infidel”,”Shall The Sun of Righteousness Arise With Healing In His Wings”, “Give Ear All The Inhabitants of The World” .
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
When the prophecy of wisdom by apostle Paul in 1 Cor.2:7–8 was revealed, it’s proving that John’s prophecy on John 3:16 was true. Its proving that Jesus is really The Son of God, and it proved that truly God loves the world, that He gave His only Son so who ever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Titus 3:4–5 But “when the kindness of God our Savior and his love for mankind appeared,he saved us not by works of righteousness that we have done but on the basis of his mercy, through the washing of the new birth and the renewing of the Holy Spirit,
Through the wisdom of God in a mystery that preached by all prophets and apostles in both Old and New Testaments which why Christ was crucified (1 Cor.2:7–8), I believe and be saved ( Rom.10:17, Eph.2:8)
I will not be tossed back and forth by waves and every wind of teaching by people’s trickery and craftiness. I had been saved. Now I really know that I am in Him that is True and walking in the right path.
Proverbs 4:11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
Phillipians 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Obviously His blood was shed for me… I had been saved by such a great love of God and His Son Jesus Christ!
1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
The gleaming of the world is nothing. Worldly lust and all it’s desires loses it’s power and became unappealing. I receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior. If I’m worthy, I’m willing to take up the cross with Him. I am thoroughly His forever. For Him I live.
Romans 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.
2 Corinthians 5:15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.
The knowledge of God that comes from the wisdom of God in a mystery which Jesus had worked on the cross, makes me fear of God. Trying to be careful in every step (may God help me).
Isaiah 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the YHWH is his treasure.
Proverbs 14:26 In the fear of the YHWH is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. 14:27 The fear of the YHWH is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.
I am protected by His word.
1 Peter 1:17 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
All His words are right (Psalms 33:4). All men must appear before the judgement seat of Christ (2 Cor.5:10).
The punishment for the nations that refuse to obey and rebel as prophecied in the book including Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel will come to pass.
Fear The Lord and glorify Him.
Psalm 19:9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Psalm 33:18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Job 28:28 And he said to mankind, ‘The fear of the Lord — that is wisdom, and to turn away from evil is understanding.’
One day in 2010, I was in Manado, sitting in the living room. Near by me there was a TV broadcasting music show. I watched it. Without realizing my attention was fully directed to the show, something I never done for a long time. Suddenly the Holy Spirit speaks in my head : “You better use your time for something valuable, that is giving thanks because your sins are forgiven”. I was shocked and left immediately. You better use your time for something valuable, that is giving thanks because your sins are forgiven. My status was confirmed by the Holy Spirit. Your sins are forgiven. Oh Lord, blessed be Your name!
Act 13:39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses. 13:40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets; 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the YHWH: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
I understand that I had experienced all those special things so that I really know what God is now working on in me and in all people. He is fullfilling His promise of salvation. In His name I must testify that with the fullfillment of the prophecy of apostle Paul in Acts 17:29–31 and 1 Cor. 2:7–8 in this present time, then the acceptable year of the YHWH has come.
Micah 7:16 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. 7:17 They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the Lord our God, and shall fear because of thee. 7:18 Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. 7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 7:20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
Hebrew 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
I still have to pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love patience and gentleness (1 Tim.6:11), pursue holiness (Hebrew 12:14).
Still have to add to my faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge temperance, to temperance patience, and to patience godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness charity ( 2 Pet.1:5–9).
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
2 Peter 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: 1:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
2 John 1:5 And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 1:8 Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 1:11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 13:35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
1 John 3:11 For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 3:12 Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. 3:13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. 3:14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. 3:15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 3:17 But whoso hath this world’s good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 4:8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Matthew 5:43 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 5:45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 5:46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 5:47 And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
1 Corinthians 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments. 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
Now I admit that living in God’s mercy is truly sweet and lovely.. Living by doing His will. Living in the fear of The Lord. Nothing is more beautiful, nothing is more sweet, nothing is more precious than living with Him in peace.
1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Proverbs 24:14 So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
I’m so grateful for God’s grace that allows all human to have a brand new life just like I had.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
New life in the new covenant, covenant of peace, everlasting covenant.
Isaiah 54:10 Even if the mountains are removed and the hills displaced, my devotion will not be removed from you, nor will my covenant of friendship be displaced,” says the Lord, the one who has compassion on you.
Jeremiah 32:40–41 I will make a lasting covenant with them that I will never stop doing good to them. I will fill their hearts and minds with respect for me so that they will never again turn away from me.I will take delight in doing good to them. I will faithfully and wholeheartedly plant them firmly in the land.’
Thank You Lord of hosts, God of Israel, YHWH, Saviour.
Isaiah 55:6–7 Seek the Lord while he makes himself available; call to him while he is nearby!The wicked need to abandon their lifestyle and sinful people their plans. They should return to the Lord, and he will show mercy to them, and to their God, for he will freely forgive them.
2 Corinthians 6:1–2 Now because we are fellow workers, we also urge you not to receive the grace of God in vain. 6:2 For he says, “I heard you at the acceptable time, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” Look, now is the acceptable time; look, now is the day of salvation!
John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. 10:8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
2 John 1:3 Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
In the name of Jesus Christ The Lord I testify.
