8/28/2016 ~ Destiny is in What we Seek


  destiny.mp3 (49m 38s)


In the absence of light, darkness has no smell.
Seeking is a personal quest for that which one desires to obtain.

"... For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge." ~ Proverbs 1:22


Many choose to live on impulse, either buried in a desperate moment
or just personifying an outrageous presence, on to the next episode.
These types of people care little for others as the plow or
rip into both those near and far from them.


Salvation is far from the wicked, For they do not seek
Your statutes. ~ Psalms 119:155


Unnoticed for many is they are dismissing God by ignoring what He has
announced for humanity to know. By not caring to become familiar with
His knowledge exposes a character of a self seeking, over a thankful
submissive soul regarding that which is larger than all.


... he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is
a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. ~ Hebrews 11:6


I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
~ Proverbs 8:17


"But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you."
~ Luke 12:31


Spiritual depths have no equal in the turmoil's of living.
Strength of God comes by accepting His grace delivering peace
through hope upwelling from mutual love. One has to be
sober minded to carry a real relationship with God.


"Is not My word like a fire?" says the Lord, ... ~ Jeremiah 23:29

Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it. ~ Psalm 34:14

Only each humble heart can admit to how much one has
examined His word concerning His presence among us. Sixty six
books, 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New are open for review.
To miss the Lord is to undermine the deepest reasons for living.


"... set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life,
that both you and your descendants may live; ..." ~ Deuteronomy 30:19


Each of us are presented with choices enabling the blessing
of thankful living or merely rendered to the damnation of cursing
in the midst of wishing death in a blind stupor. Our isolated rage
tells the tale if it suppresses an openness to love. As witness
is God in Heaven and all those who we would encounter
during our stay upon this spatial orb called earth.


"... Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts.
If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him,
He will cast you off forever." ~ 1st Chronicles 28:9


Evil men do not understand justice,
But those who seek the LORD understand all. ~ Proverbs 28:5


Clearly His message contains the path of return to something greater
than can be written. By genuinely seeking Him, He unbiasedly promises
to lift a heart into knowing. How eager is again the choice we choose to
pursue. One only interested in the next beer and or faceless sex reduces
to shallow extremism. True spiritual depth rises past the desire to possess
the material. Do you seek the Eternal Lord in your deepest parts or is it
something more shallow involving just the passing's of the earth?


... And what does the LORD require of you But to do justly,
To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? ~ Micah 6:8


The evidence is overabundant in God reaching out for our return. It
manifests in all that we perceive. The material is a test to find the heart of
what we seek. Is it only for the selfish self or does nobility play notice?


... "I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite
and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble,~ Isaiah 57:15


His life paid the price to engage us all in a personal relationship with the
true One and Only Living Lord God. For those that return, the quality of
listening takes action. God is with the soul that humbly falls before Him.
He calls and commands we seek His will.

... filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual
understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him,
being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God;
~ Colossians 1:9-10


His gifts are delivered in the subtleties of living. It is His will that we find
Him on our own as independent sentient creatures. How close we
become with Him is directly related to the effort we put forth.


... may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation
in the knowledge of Him, ... ~ Ephesians 1:17-18


How could we hope not to have knowledge
releasing the understanding of His true wisdom?


... You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and
outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. ~ Jeremiah 32:17


Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; He is gracious,
and full of compassion, and righteous. ~ Psalms 112:4


He exposes Himself so that we may know how to be
in conduct and godliness. Graciousness and to be full of
compassion and righteousness is to partake in the fruits of the spirit
as well as embrace these qualities as a reward from God.


... which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the
day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; ~ 2nd Peter 1:19


For those that embrace His ways, an eternal light comes to heart. The
fires of eternity cannot be extinguished for in them is no darkness where
we will come to dwell in His light. He calls for us to rise back to Him.


He stretches out the north over empty space;
He hangs the earth on nothing. ~ Job 26:7


Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, Who have upheld His justice.
Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden
In the day of the LORD'S anger. ~ Zephaniah 2:3


... the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt
with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.
~ 2nd Peter 3:10


Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons
ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, ... ~ 2nd Peter 3:11-12


A single coronal mass ejection (CME) could quickly extinguish life
on earth if it were the will of God. One of His creations is that He hangs
matter on the edge of nothing. His power to create is immeasurable.
Time itself simultaneously reacts in space as it continually separates;
quite a magnificent displaying of velocities structure and all due to
and of His ingenious enigmatic will. Surely His presence
extends well past knowledge upholding reality itself.
His touch spreads to the edge of eternity.


Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
~ Romans 13:10


Let no one seek his own, but each one the other's well-being.
~ 1st Corinthians 10:24


Pearls abound in the word and any single sermon is grossly inadequate
in expressing all that needs to be considered surrounding our meek lives.


... seek those things which are above, where Christ is, ... ~ Colossians 3:1

The key to living is loving.

Love has been perfected among us in this: that we
may have boldness in the day of judgment; ... ~ 1st John 4:17


... it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is
revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. ~ 1st John 3:2


... who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape
if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, ... ~ Hebrews 12:25


"So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate
the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire. ..."
~ Matthew 13:49-50


A situation is coming for all that transcends time itself.
It will be an accounting with that supreme of all fateful awakening
occurrences. It will define life over death unveiling all secrets. It will
be soberly plain as justice is true for each soul before Him. May the
gravity of this event find one prepared as its' finality is eternal.

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy,
and keep those things which are written in it; ... ~ Revelation 1:3


It is in His word saints find sanctuary that no weapon can destroy.
The message has always been that time is near, for each of us,
one breath close.

Fools hate knowledge
The wicked miss salvation without a desire for His word
God rewards those who diligently seek Him
Godís word is a torch that pierces through all delusions
We all face a decision to live or to die
God can be found if one seeks Him
God is with the humble bestowing a lifting spirit
We must do justly, love mercy, & walk humbly with God
Filled with and growing in the knowledge of His will
May know the hope of His calling & riches of His inheritance
For the upright in heart, God brings light in the darkness
Consider what manner of person you ought to be
To live is to love whereby here stands the law of God


We will be judged by what we seek.
In His eternal light justice prevails where all rejoice.

Darkness resides where all has been stripped bare.
