Not a Suggestion

You hear folks say, “GOD willing” a bunch of times and I must admit I’ve said it a few, myself, but I have come to the belief that we ALREADY know GOD’s WILL, but we simply ignore it. What I am about to say will probably put me on some ‘suspect’ list as a subversive, but here goes:

GOD’s will cannot be found in ‘The Book of Mormon”; GOD’s will cannot be found in the Koran; GOD’s will is not practiced in Shangri La; GOD’s will is not even preached from every pulpit. GOD’s will was cut into slate tablets thousands of years ago. Moses received it and shared it with the people of Israel in the desert and it has been removed from many walls by confused folks in black robes. GOD’s Will is not a ‘suggestion’ with a ‘pretty please’.  GOD’s Will is succinctly summed up in ten statements (with an added one by My Lord JESUS Christ). GOD’s will is revealed in The Ten Commandments. I found a printable copy of the ten on the internet, lifted from the New King James Version of Exodus 20:2-17. I have it taped to my ‘computer corner’. The eleventh is given by JESUS in John 13:34. JESUS said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” It is my belief that this is GOD’s Will for every man, woman and child; every day of our life we should live as HE would  have  us live. But, it is only possible through HIM, acceptance of HIS gift of Salvation and the leading of THE HOLY SPIRIT. Even though difficult, it isn’t impossible. If we could but do as commanded, things would be a lot better.  That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
