Summary: MY TESTIMONY AND THE CONCLUSION OF THE SERIES THE WATER OF HAPPINESS

  Study Tools

THIS IS THE CONCLUSION TO THE SERIES ENTITLED THE WATER OF HAPPINESS. IT IS NOT ONLY THE CONCLUSION, BUT THE CONCLUSION I HAVE ARRIVED AFTER MANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE. I BEEN FOLLOWING THE LORD FOR 13 YEARS, THIS TRUTH HAVE NEVER BEEN SO CLEAR. THE TRUTH THAT ONLY GOD CAN MAKE US HAPPY. THE REALITY THAT ONLY GOD SATISFIES. HOW DID I CAME TO KNOW BY REVALATION THIS TRUTH? 5 YEARS AGO I WENT THROUGH A TERRIBLE DEPRESSION. I FELT LIKE IF GOD HAS ABANDONED ME. THE DEPRESSION WAS CHRONIC. I MET WITH THE SAINTS, BUT I DID NOT FEEL GOD. UNTIL ONE DAY A BOOK BY DR. SAM STORMS (ONE THING) FELL ON MY HANDS!. GOD INTRODUCED ME TO CHRISTIAN HEDONISM! I SAW THAT GOD WANTED ME TO BE HAPPY! I SAW THAT GOD WANTED ME TO ENJOY HIM! OH, BELOVED, IT IS ALL ABOUT ENJOYING GOD! I SAW THAT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL REALITY IS TO ENJOY GOD! JESUS CAME THAT WE MIGHT ENJOY HIM AND ENJOY HIM ABUNDANTLY! THE DEPRESSION WAS IMMEDIATELY GONE! MY MIND WAS NEW! NEVER DEPRESSION HAS COME BACK! I HAVE FELT DISCOURAGED, BUT NEVER DEPRESSED! SOMETIME I TRIED TO BE DEPRESSED, BUT GOD WON'T ALLOW IT!

IN THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE, LUKE 15:16 DECLARES THAT "THEY COULD NOT SATISFY HIS HUNGER" I CAN'T ERASE THAT PHRASE OUT OF MY MIND. THE PROSTITUTES COULD NOT SATISFY HIS HUNGER FOR HAPPINESS. ALL THE MONEY HE HAD COULD NOT MAKE HIM HAPPY. THE DIRTY FOOD OF PIGS (SIN AND IDOLATRY) COULD NOT SATISFY HIM. ONLY EATING (ENJOYING) CHRIST AS THE FATTENED CALF COULD SATISFY HIM! THUS, MAY ALL OF US BY DIVINE LIGHT REALIZE THAT ONLY CHRIST CAN MAKE US HAPPY! IT IS MY PRAYER THAT WE MAY SEE THAT TO SAY THAT JESUS FILLS THE VOID IS NO SENTIMENTAL NOR POETICAL SAYING. IT IS A NEED: YOU NEED GOD AS WATER, AS HAPPINESS AS SATISFACTION! MAY THE GOOD LORD OPEN OUR EYES TO SEE THAT ONLY HE CAN SATISFY THE HUNGER OF OUR SOULS. MAY HE REVEAL US THAT ONLY HIS LOVE SATISFIES, THAT ONLY LOVING HIM MAKES THE HEART HAPPY. MAY WE SEE THAT MONEY, SEX, FAME, RELIGION, IDOLATRY AND MERE KNOWLEDGE CAN NOT SATISFY US. MAY WE SEE THAT JESUS IS THE ONLY FOUNTAIN OF LIVING SATISFACTION. SHALOM!
