Jesus? Or even God himself? Sometimes I think too much and than BANG ! The Mayan theory
hits me and I think, OMG, are all humans going to die, and is there no God? But I would dare
not believe there is no God, yet I do not know if he is real, but I do.. I don't know,, But back to
Jesus, I one day woke up so scared of the end of the world, and couldn't sleep for a whole
entire day... I want to believe, but I seem not to feel it,, and!!
there's a passage I think , it says that the righteous will live forever, but the sinners, hell and
satan will eventually cease to exist... That's one thing that worries me.. And what you said
about how we believe God because we think we should, I think that's true, everything you
basically said is so true, yet I'm still scared of this place called Hell. I'm scared the father will
not accept me, I'm a sinner and I know that, and every time I think about judgement day it
scares me because I know I can do good, but yet I choose not to... Argh..
I am glad it brought "some" relief :) I tried to email you but it was kicked back. Have you done any
studying on the words in the Bible that give you trouble? I do believe when you realize the truth, and
learn to not listen to your flesh, you will "feel" like a different person.
torment in fear. But He also said love moves fear out of the way...There is no fear in God's love..if you
know He loves us.
It's not only the Mayan theory that says something is going to happen, it is Christians too. But, if God
is in control of everything that happens, it will all be OK. People, for ages, have been making
predictions of disaster and some may be right. I believe there is a big change coming. For those who
don't submit to Christ's love and provision, it will be trying and difficult to say the least. For those
who rely on Christ, there is nothing but good change coming to them/us.
Have you, in your search, ever found yourself coming close to thanking God for the salvation He has
provided for humanity? Or, has it not become that apparent to you that He has? Evidently, it did to a
point, because you said, what I said on my site had brought you some relief.
act on suggestions that are not truth, when he was tempted by the devil in the wilderness. This is just
part of life in this time period. You will notice that "the Spirit" led Him into the desert to be tempted.
believe it. You have no more "proof" for believing the Mayan theory than you do for believing the
words of God. Take the leap! God will prove Himself to you over and over as you walk with Him and
allow Him to change you into the image of Christ.
He did say we can call on Him and He will answer....call on Him.
Some say sinners will cease to exist, some say they will burn in Hell, forever. See what God says. Dig
into the original meanings of the words in the Bible. Check out those beliefs with the rest of the
Bible...Is it a common theme through out the Bible? What does the Old Testament say about it?
God is not holding our sins against us anymore. If we know this to be true, then, we should "be
reconciled" . You might say if God has reconciled us already, why do we need to "be reconciled"? If
we are not reconciled/believing that God did what He did, we have no peace in this life. We are
tossed around, not knowing what to believe and fearful. We are perishing, in this life!
of God unto salvation. Find someone you know to be an honest, God fearing person and go to church
with them. You don't have to believe everything they say but many of them do preach the basic
gospel. (they may have God's judgments a little "confused" but the gospel message is the gospel
message..period. Remember Zachaeus? I believe it is impossible to genuinely look for God and NOT
will answer. I would love to hear from you again.
