A Non-Denominational Ministry of Our Heavenly Father
Sharing the Word of God... World-Wide
The strangest thing about the day "I Left Hell", was it took me so long to realize I was even in Hell! I walked right through the "Gates of Hell", and never felt any fear. In fact I felt as strong as Samson!Then one day I read the story about Samson... THE REAL STORY!
I read that Samson NEVER KNEW God was NOT with him on the day he awoke with his "hair cut". Just as he did not notice his hair was no longer there, he did not notice his God was also no longer there!
Judges 16:20 Then she called, "Samson, the Philistines are upon you!" He awoke from his sleep and thought, "I'll go out as before and shake myself free." But he did not know that the LORD had left him.
It was later, when Samson prayed to God, that his strength was returned. But HE had to return to the relationship he had with Abba Father first! This story opened up my eyes to how easy we backslide to a state where we are no longer in the presence of Our Almighty God! Do you still feel the FULL strength of The Holy Spirit in YOUR life?We must keep "The inside of our bowl clean", in order to have a place for the Holy Spirit to live within us. We can not force the Holy Spirit to live in a "Getto Based Heart"
I know we are lucky that God never really leaves us, it is us that leave Him! My Heavenly Father was right where I left Him... Waiting on me to return to His Loving Arms! When we return to Him, the Holy Spirit has an environment to thrive in.
Then I read other stories in the Bible, they made me cry with joy! I read about The Prodigal Son. And how his father also waited for his child to return. Again I also noticed the man had to RETURN to the Father. The Father waited for his son, but he also did not go after his son... The Father was right where his son left him!
My Heavenly Father is a GREAT example on what a REAL Father should be. I hope my children would also know that I will also be right where they left me... Waiting on their return to my arms, and seeing the pain I would go through without their company. I pray they would see the strength they would be giving up, if they decided to "go it alone", rather than as a family!
