How to edit your Book of Life PART 1

23 January 2013, 15:59

YOU ARE YOUR OWN PERSONAL LIVING, WALKING, TALKING AND THINKING BOOK OF LIFE. YOU NEED TO MAKE A DRASTIC CHANGE TO IT - BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

WARNING! The import of this message will self-destruct if speed reading is applied.

THERE IS SOMETHING IN LIFE THAT ONLY YOU CAN DO – AND THAT IS TO CHANGE THE THEME OF YOUR BOOK OF LIFE. THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR FAILURE TO DO THIS ARE TOO HORRIFIC TO EVEN CONTEMPLATE. WHEN YOU’RE THROUGH READING THIS WITHOUT HAVING TAKEN ACTION, KNOW THAT THERE IS NO OTHER ROUTE FOR YOU TO FOLLOW THAT WOULD LEAD TO YOUR REDEMPTION.

FIRST THINGS FIRST

A human body needs only one thing to give it functionality as a living human creature complete with consciousness and individuality. Without this one thing it has no life whatsoever and might as well be buried. That one thing is the Breath of Life which, in actual fact, is an extension of God Himself. God is Spirit and all spirits come from Him, which makes us spiritual beings. We, as human creatures, are like angels clad in physical bodies through which we expose our spiritual personalities.

Every movement made or action taken by our physical bodies is merely the outward expression of our spiritual life within. Our spiritual person is a living being with an inner core known as the heart. At the helm of the heart is a “mechanism” responsible for everything that comes out of the heart for presentation to fellow human beings. This fellow is capable of moving mountains, launching ships, waging war and doing anything it conjures up within the heart. We all know him as the mind of the spirit. He is the executive officer of our spiritual being. Without him nothing will be accomplished either good or bad. The world is what it is today because of the spiritual mind of man.

It was the spiritual mind of Eve that elected to eat of that forbidden fruit. It was the spiritual mind of Cain that devised the death of his brother. Modern technology exists because of the spiritual minds of men. Yes, man possesses the creative qualities of his Maker. As possessors of God-life it is impossible not to be creative. Although imprisoned within puny physical bodies, these spiritual creatures are capable of immense constructive or destructive exploits.

Now here’s the problem. Every individual human spirit-creature comes equipped with a companion to his mind known as the power of choice – or FREE WILL. But it is entirely up to the mind whether or not to take counsel from this thorn in the spirit. The mess the world is in today is as a direct result of opposing the right choice in favour of the wrong one. The fact is, making wrong choices forms part of man’s fallen nature and it is this that has alienated him from his Maker. Partaking of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil swayed us towards the latter attribute thereof. It became our spiritual poison with eternal consequences.

An open book
Now here’s the thing – having this God-life within his physical body, man is utterly exposed to the Great Spirit, which is God. It means that the spirit of every human being is like a cam-recorder within the “mother spirit”, which is God, the Creator Spirit. Not even the tiniest movement we make goes unnoticed. Every single thought going through our minds, every word spoken and every action taken are displayed and heard by God every moment of our lives. We can hide nothing from the Source of our lives. We are, in fact, a book of life being written by ourselves for constant consumption by the One who put ink in our spiritual pens for this purpose.

Every person will have the opportunity to review his own book of life as depicted in Rev 20:12, 13. “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened...and they were judged every man...”

These books (of life) are ours and God already knows the content from cover to cover. However, only those who have not made a willing change to their book of life – while they were still alive and well and living on earth - will stand in this Judgment. You most certainly don’t want to be in this Judgment.

And God has His own book which will either reflect or not reflect our names written therein, “...and another book was opened, which is the book of life...And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

It is emphatically clear that there is nothing we can hide or keep secret from the first page to the last page of our personal book of life. However, if we get to know the Truth and embrace it, we can complete the last pages of our book (from the moment we follow that Truth) with scintillating chapters that fills the heart of God with joy and contentment. Here’s the good part. God will discard every page prior to that and exclude you from the moment of Judgment reserved for all those who have not altered the theme of their book.

How has your book been coming along or are you still sleeping between the soft covers provided by the world you live in? Is it not time to start writing a God-pleasing best seller for all to see? Don’t despair. You are about to receive the guidelines for starting such a book. Please switch over to alert mode.

Stay tuned for PART 2.

Firstly it is amazing to see a woman scorned rise up and take over by crushing the career her cheating husband had by taking over and proving her strength but is that enough to win over the American public?  Read more...

Dear Danie Ferreira...

You seem awfully concerned with Oscar Pistorius' well-being. You say that sending him to jail is vengeance from the state. You suggest that it is akin to taking his life. Read more...

So tired of this Oscar issue

I am so over the arguing of what should happen, and what should not happen at his sentencing. I am so tired of the pro Pistorius saying he never meant to do it, and I am over the anti saying he did. Read more...
