SCRIPTURE: Mark 4:21-25, Jesus asked them,
“Would anyone LIGHT a lamp & then put it under a basket or under a bed to shut out the light? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its LIGHT will SHINE. Everything that is now HIDDEN or SECRET will eventually be brought to LIGHT. Anyone who is WILLING to HEAR should LISTEN & UNDERSTAND! And be sure to PAY ATTENTION to what you HEAR. The more you do this, the MORE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND -- and EVEN MORE, besides. To those who are OPEN to MY TEACHING, MORE UNDERSTANDING will be GIVEN. But to those who are not listening, even what they have will be taken away from them.”
There is a GREAT PURPOSE why we are here in this world.
We have a SUPERNATURAL MISSION to accomplish.
Most of us had a question like these: Why am I here? Why do I need to experience all these TRIALS, PERSECUTIONS, CHALLENGES, etc…
The Creator of the entire LIMITLESS UNIVERSE created you in this world for His very OWN PURPOSE!
Let’s find out!
ü We need to understand the PERSPECTIVE of God’s VIEW so that we can grasp the FULLNESS of His PLAN.
“Can two WALK TOGETHER, except they be AGREED?” (Amos 3:3, KJV)
-----Are we walking in AGREEMENT w/ God?
-----So first, we really need understand the FULLNESS of God’s perspective VIEW.
Why did God created HUMAN, in the first place?
Let’s start from the BEGINNING. The Universe & the Angels existed long before God created us HUMAN. Genesis 1:1
The KINGDOM of God was Administered by the Arch Angel Lucifer (It was in PERFECT ORDER, until in him that iniquity was found). Ezekiel 28:12-15. Lucifer allowed thoughts of JEALOUSY, envy, GREED, resentment and REBELLION. These NEGATIVE THOUGHTS occupied his heart and MIND! His MIND became PERVERTED and TWISTED. Lucifer made a DECISION to REBEL! Lucifer decided to REVOLT! UNTIL LUCIFER REBELLED, so God casted Him out of His POSITION and was TRANSFORMED into a DRAGON, w/c is Satan. Satan became an author of DARKNESS, DESTRUCTION, CHAOS, CONFUSION, etc… Genesis 1:2
Ø Lucifer, who is now called Satan, the devil, uses his TWISTED MIND to DECEIVE HUMANITY, until NOW! The devil plants NEGATIVE thoughts, NEGATIVE feelings, NEGATIVE emotions, NEGATIVE attitudes and NEGATIVE words, WORLDLY desires and SELFISH ambition that causes GREED, PRIDE, FEAR, JEALOUSY, RESENTMENT, ANGER, UNFORGIVENESS, etc… It will create, misunderstanding, disunity, COMPETITION, COMPARISON and DIVISION! Satan is the “Father of Lies and CONFUSION”!
In Verse 22, “Everything that is now HIDDEN or SECRET will eventually be brought to LIGHT.”
When God said, “Let there be LIGHT: and there was LIGHT.” Genesis 1:3 (The VISION became CLEAR.)
I. VISION: - “SIGHT is a function of the EYES, but VISION is a function of the HEART.”
In Isaiah 14:13-14; For thou hast SAID in thine HEART, “I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”
It was a SELF-CENTERED VISION!!!
This is the very reason why God created HUMAN in His OWN IMAGE to DEVELOP the CHRIST-LIKE character(SUBMISSION, HUMILITY, OBEDIENCE, WILLINGNESS).
God wants us to TRUST & OBEY Him with all our HEART.
God desires to put His VISION in our Heart.
Ephesians 1:9-10, “God’s SECRET PLAN has now been revealed to us; it is a PLAN CENTERED on Christ, DESIGNED LONG AGO according to His good pleasure. And this is His PLAN: At the RIGHT TIME He will bring EVERYTHING TOGETHER UNDER the AUTHORITY of Christ -- everything in heaven and on earth.”
ü We who belong to Christ shall RESTORE the KINGDOM of God (GOV’T) in PROPER ORDER.
ü God CHOSE us to EXERCISE God’s LAW and WAY of HOLINESS or RIGHTEOUSNESS not only in the CHURCH, but also in the SECULAR WORLD.
“We need to be BORN AGAIN so that we will see the KINGDOM of God”
ü In Mark 8:22-25, Jesus RETOUCHED the Eyes of a BLIND. Then, His VISION became CLEAR!
ü We need a RETOUCH from the Lord to OPEN our “Eyes of Faith”.
ü When King Zedekiah REFUSED to OBEY and SUBMIT to God’s WAY, God used the Great King of Babylon.
“God is looking for someone who is WILLING to WALK with Him by FAITH not by SIGHT.”
The Classic Example is Abraham. In Genesis 22:16-18.
And said, “By MYSELF have I SWORN,” saith the LORD, “For because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I WILL MULTIPLY THY SEED the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy SEED shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy SEED shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast OBEYED MY VOICE.”
