Jesus-Yeshua in the 21st Century
Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened.
Questions and answers are the frameworks of society, they enlighten our awareness, and understanding of events, and circumstances that we must deal with on a daily routine.
The right questions will lead to the right answers. I considered questions and answers a good tool for teaching, and also questions and answers indicate the level of a student's comprehension of the subject on hand, with that said let's examine some of the questions asked.
1 Why? - This is asked in times of confusion, and uncertainty, but this question is answered after the facts are discovered.
2 What if? - This question is for possibilities in the face of negativity, and to ascertain a different outcome that does not focus on what is.
3 When? - This question is asked to get a better understanding of time and the appropriate actions to be taken
4 Where? - This question is to pinpoint a destination or place to settle, visit or explore.
5 How? - This question is a mystery and very evasive in nature, we can pat down the why, what if, when, where, but then how is dimensional, not one size fit all, what will work for the goose, is not good for the gender. All the knowledge in the world cannot pin down this question and give it true justice, that's why the world's problems remain unsolved, and it is not that the problems are not known, and where they are, it's the how that is evasive. Credit must be given to those who make the effort to try to make a difference in the face of it all, maybe one of these days the right puzzle piece will be found, until then we trust that how we know now will lead us to the right method.
God will only give us glues, so we can find the answers we do seek, so when we find them we will feel good about ourselves on a job well done
I hope you receive the answers to your questions as you ask, seek, and knock
It is not for me to know the when, where, how and the who, but to know the One who does, and to know the why is unproductive and yields no fruit.
When you ask, seek and knock, leave room for God to be God, He know the what, when, where, who and how. Don't put Him on your level, if you do you will be disappointed and lose heart ( That what it means to trust)
Father, The God who is among us, within us, and work through us,
In the 21st century, humans have many questions, to which there are no answers, some asking the wrong questions, some seeking the wrong path, and come knocking on the wrong door, this has been going on for generation after generation, nevertheless, you know those that are yours, and whether we live or die nothing present or to come can change that, so answers and questions will come and go, but You remain the true answer to every question that arises in the human experience, and so like King David, we say " One thing have I desire of the Lord, that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life" in our era " our heart" and our bodies the house of the Lord. Thank You for providing us with The Way, The Truth, and The Life!
In the year 2023 remember the God of 2022 is not left behind, He steps into the New Year too, and will be the same as He last year.
As long as you keep in mind these things, all will be well ( dead or alive )
But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,”
He knows where you are at, where you want to go, He knows your every thought, but He wants you to know too, hence the need for a relationship, of partnership and trust
we love to ask questions, but do we really want the answers?
Some answers are known in retrospective or by hindsight
Some answers are not easily accepted and believed
Some answers will not be given until the right questions are asked
