What is the meaning of life? That is a question that has left mankind scratching their heads since the dawn of time. Where do we search to find the answer to that question? God’s Word. If you are not a Christian I would ask you to consider following along in this quick study…

Let’s get started.

In Mark 13:23 Jesus said,

“But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

If Jesus said He told us all things, then He meant it. So we must seek out the scriptures for the answer to our question.

Revelation 4:11
11 “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

There you have the answer to the question! All things were created for God’s pleasure. That is the meaning of life. Not only mankind, everything around us was created for the pleasure of God. Our Father loves us very much, in fact He created us in His exact image (Genesis 1:26-27). If the entire reason of our being is to please God, we must search the scriptures and seek out what pleases Him.

1 John 3:22-24
22 “And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

23 “And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.”

24 “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.”

How beautifully put.

We become pleasing to God and we show Him our love by believing on His Son, Jesus Christ and following those Ten Commandments which He gave us (Exodus 20:1-17, Deuteronomy 5:4-21). Following these things pleases our Father in Heaven. Take note that those commandments don’t just please God, they enrich our daily lives. We become better people and create a better society as a result.

Do you realize God loves us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to earth to die on the cross so that our sins might be forgiven (1 John 4:9-10, Hebrews 2:14)?

That is true love indeed. God is our Father and we are His children. God gave us a chance to experience this relationship ourselves with our children. You would do just about anything for your child would you not?

So would God and He already has. Never doubt the love God holds for you.

If that was not enough, God has made many promises to us in His Word, the Bible.

Do you know what they are?

Hebrews 11:6
6 “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

What is being said here?

We must have faith in God in order to please Him, in return He rewards those that truly seek after Him in His Word. There’s a promise…

Let’s look at one more before we conclude.

1 Corinthians 2:9
9 “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

That is utterly amazing to think about. Those that love God and seek out His Word are promised rewards we can’t even imagine. How exciting! I look forward to that day, when we again will walk with our closest relative, our Father in Heaven.

YHWH follows His own laws, so that makes Him a good God. That would explain why satan is doing everything he can to prove God a liar; even if only for a single promise. For example, YHWH made promises to Abraham & his seed to be as numerous as the stars and explains why satan is bent on killing every Jew & Christian (to prevent that promise from coming to fruition). satan’s plan is pure evil, but brilliant in its simplicity: kill every descendent of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob and every Christian believer and make God a liar. Problem is, YHWH cannot lie. That is a powerful & wonderful fact for every believer. We can count on every promise YHWH has made in His Word. Every. Single. One. We serve an Awesome God. Not only can we count on His Word, but He proved it by becoming a man & showed us how to live (love YHWH & our fellow man). YHWH is Love. Love fulfills the Law.

I have a serious question for you. I’m seriously not trying to catch you out, or troll in any way; this concept has wracked my brain for quite some time. Why was Christ’s sacrifice necessary? YHWH, as the offended party, surely has the prerogative to forgive the offense, for no other reason than mercy. Couldn’t He have simply exercised His Divine Power and changed the rules, instead of making a bizarre end-run around them? For that matter, didn’t he foresee that His rules would be overly harsh, and require this sort of fix right from the beginning? Doesn’t that mean He set us up to fail on purpose?I’m really not trying to troll here, but I need a powerful reason to believe in the face of a Creator who, on the face of it, seems monumentally evil.

He came to defeat death. Death is Satan. He resurrected, an example that we too could live eternal. Also during that time he went back and witnessed to the people who had died before, all the way back to Noah.So that they have the same opportunity that we as Christians have since his crucifixion.To accept him as Emmanual, which means God with us. He was God in the flesh. You need to keep asking questions and digging in the word. All the answers are there.

Well when a person sees the world, and wonders why would God, so and so, and the answer is so simple, and yet you have to stop and meditate on it!!! God is Love, and Gods loves “All”, all his children, good or bad. Even the ones that rebelled on the first earth age. So, He brought on These second earth age for the prodical sons who went astray. The parable of the prodical son, is what these earth age is about. As one friend told me once. God would not make us doing something He himself be willing to do . Imagine this, the Creator of Everything stepping out of His Throne, and humbling Himself, being born in the flesh as Jesus Christ, for the sake of that one sheep who went astray, well, isn’t that an incredible love for us to merely understand and that He would allow sin, and evil to rule today, as much as He hates that, but for the sake of that “lost soul”. So as a true servant of the Lord, His Kings and Priests of the future, He would naturally expect them to do the same.

When I was six…I lived in Tennessee…we were very poor….but that did not matter…I used to hate those ants that would bite..I would spend hours plugging their little hills. One day when I was doing that I experienced a voice. It came from everywhere and it said “Things are not as they seem” and I thought hmmm…Things are not as they seem and I knew exactly what that meant. Later I learned the parable of the ants and the grasshoppers and I knew…When God Speaks…I listen…
