Guest Blog Spotlight: SPEAK FOR CHRIST

Today I am blessed with a guest blogger who is in love with Christ and His Church. He humbley requested to remain anonymous. This blog was prayerfully written and I pray it blesses you as much as it did myself. Enjoy!

Speak For Christ

 

Even if God Himself - tangibly-appeared to someone tomorrow - that person would still need clues and confirmations from God or someone else (or a book, or a picture) - that indeed, it was really God's-appearance. 
Evil-forces always-rush-in -- to discourage people and to steal away the faith of all of us. Evil has learned from at least 8,000 years of experience that: Evil needs to destroy any faith, as soon as it starts up, before it gets a chance to grow and spread. Evil tries to make people afraid or embarrassed to speak out publicly and tell neighbors, friends, and relatives about their experiences with God. Surely; Evil wants to keep God a total-secret

God in Jesus came to earth (as God) appearing as a man to show us many things, and He proved Who-He-Was so that no one can avoid Him. In addition; He left hundreds of eye-witnesses (33-AD) to write about Him for the sake of History too.  And then, on top of all this - Jesus showed us 5,000 saints since then in history who have actually put into practice what the bible tells us on how to behave and live with Jesus alive within us - so that  we now have so many witnesses that it is a mystery as to why everyone is not a real-saint. 

Bottom line: Jesus lived like one of us for 33 years, then died, rose from death, walked among witnesses for 40-days, lived in and through those who spiritually-allow Him to Co-exist in them then: left us with a holy bible, a church, leaders, and then co-existed inside another 5,000 saints to show us how we too can become co-existent-saints with Him alive in us too if we ask Him to help us do that.   

At a minimum -- we who know these things need to (GENTLY) help others to know them too. Evil gives us all kinds of excuses as to why we do not need to talk about Jesus or try to live like a co-existent-saint. Jesus is not going come to die again (He did it once for all). Jesus does live within anyone who gives Him room in their mind, heart, and conscience (He nudges us to let His light shine-through). 

The main thing wrong with our world  is that Evil succeeds in keeping Jesus a secret  - and then Evil calls evil things: "good".

INFO ... a Definition of --- item #1777 in the Catechism ...

Moral conscience, present at the heart of the person, enjoins him at the appropriate moment to do good and to avoid evil. It also judges particular choices, approving those that are good and denouncing those that are evil. It bears witness to the authority of truth in reference to the supreme Good to which the human person is drawn, and it welcomes the commandments. When he listens to his conscience, the prudent man can hear God speaking.


Ps.22 [27] All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him. [28] For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations. [29] Yea, to him shall all the proud of the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and he who cannot keep himself alive. [30] Posterity shall serve him; men shall tell of the Lord to the coming generation, [31] and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, that he has wrought it.

Mark.8 ... Jesus said ... [38] For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of man also be ashamed, when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."
Mark.16 [20] And they (Christ's Friends) went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord (Christ's Invisible Spirit) worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.
John.14 ... Jesus said ... [17] even the Spirit of truth (Christ's Spirit alive in-us) whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you.
John.15 ... Jesus said ... [15] No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.
Col.1 ...
(Author Note: St. Paul explains in 60-AD that The Spirit of Christ was present in history -- and present in all the saints) --- --- --- --- --- [26] the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to his saints. [27] To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
2Cor.13 St. Paul said ... [5] Examine yourselves, to see whether you are holding to your faith. Test ourselves. Do you not realize that Jesus Christ is in you? -- unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
Heb.11 [6] And without faith it is impossible to please him. For whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
