God Wants To Talk With You

James 4:7-10, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Could you imagine if one of your favorite celebrities called you on the phone and wanted to talk with you? What if Silvester Stallone, Michael Jordan, Taylor Swift, George Clooney or Madonna called you at home and wanted to talk with you on the phone? You'd probably be ecstatically overjoyed and shocked. Yet the God of this universe, your Savior and Creator, wants to talk to you dear friend. James 4:8a, “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you...

Oh, how horrible we all are to God, spending so little time fellowshipping with Him in Bible reading and prayer. Dear friend, if you want to hear God speak audibly, then just read the inspired Holy Bible out loud! And make sure that you only use the King James Bible, because all of the modern revisions are corrupt. Don't listen to these debaters and fools who allege that the King James Bible is full of errors. No, the only errors are in their brain! Only the King James Bible still says that people worshipped Jesus. Here's a comparison to prove what I say.

God authored the Holy Bible to speak to us, and He also gave us His indwelling Holy Spirit (who is God with us). Literally, God lives inside every believer in the form of the blessed Holy Spirit. John 14:23, “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” ONLY a born-again child of God has the Holy Spirit in them. 1st John 3:24, “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. Amen!

Dear reader, I encourage you to set aside some time each day to read the Bible. When you come across something that you don't understanding, don't just skip over it. Study that passage and pray for God's Holy Spirit to teach it to you. I do that all the time. What saith the Scripture? John 16:13, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” The indwelling Holy Spirit is our teaching. When unsaved people attempt to understand the Scripture, without the presence of the divine Author (the Holy Spirit), that is how every pseudo-Christian cult is started!!!

God wants to talk with you. He wants to hear about your burdens, problems and painful feelings. This is not prayer. Prayer is asking God for something (Philippians 4:6-7). Since I have lived alone for the past 16 years, I spend a lot of time just talking to God. He is my Father in Heaven. Jesus is His only begotten Son, who died for my sins. Of course, we know that there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4). So to whom should we pray? We pray to the Father, through the name of the Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit. To be honest, I talk to all of them, knowing that they are all members of the Godhead. It might not make sense, but it is 100% Biblical. Man is created in God's image. We are also a three-fold being (spirit, soul and body).

I encourage you to take whatever is eating at your soul friend, and just TELL IT TO JESUS! You can talk to God just as you would to your best friend, and hopefully God is your best friend, as He has been mine for so many years. There is no friend like the lowly Jesus, no not one! If we're not careful, this sinful world will have us all turned around, twisted and confused. I often quote Hebrews 12:2 to people, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Don't focus on people because they will let you down again and again, especially today's uncaring selfish pastors.

God desires to fellowship with you friend, for you are the Lord's creation, created in His very image. I don't ever want my relationship with God to become a formal one, so that I cannot feel at home with God. That is why I don't like and try to avoid group praying in public, because everybody is praying in self-awareness that others are listening to our words. To me that makes it hard to pray, because my life of prayer is personal with God.

We've got far too many new-evangelical dead churches today, who have men meeting together to pray, but there is no scheduled time to go door-to-door soulwinning in the community. That is sad. Such was the sad case at the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam while Marty Herron was their senior pastor for 20 years (1999-2018). The men met every Saturday morning to eat bacon and eggs, and pray together, but no one ever bothered to schedule a time for the church to go soulwinning. No wonder Harvest is dead today, preaching a false gospel of Calvinist Lordship Salvation, and promoting Satan's corruptible seed (the perverse modern revisions). We need a revival of getting back to soulwinning in America!

When Peter and John walked with Jesus, they became bold and empowered to speak THE TRUTH. Acts 4:13, “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.” If you'll walk with God dear reader, you too will be emboldened for Christ to speak the truth of the Gospel. All these neo-evangelical wimps for pastors today couldn't preach their way out of a wet paper bag. We need men of God once more today—who prioritize truth over tradition, evangelism over entertainment, souls over salaries and people over popularity. Today's churches are pathetic!
