Success in GOD's given Way
Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Is. 3:10
Amos 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old
In this age, it is said once and again: find yourself! Even though that has already happened. The destruction of focusing on self has been discovered:
La. 1:9 Her filthiness is in her skirts; she remembereth not her last end; therefore she came down wonderfully: she had no comforter. O LORD, behold my affliction: for the enemy hath magnified himself .
Therefore The LORD points at the opposite direction, His given Way is to lose yourself:
Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
That message marked the beginning of His Work, when He said: Matt. 3:2 Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand
Thus declaring that people should lose themselves, their old ways, and replace them with The Way of The LORD. Which had already been given to them in the Ten Commandments, but now was shown forth perfectly by He who gave them and even Created everything. Heaven was at hand.
Ps. 119:37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
Impact in life
Answering His Call makes Scripture come true on a personal level:
Jer. 33:6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth.
People might get harmed physically by another person, but never spiritually. Never can a person have harm done unto their soul by another person. That is a fact that The LORD Himself proved, by showing forth Love no matter what people did to Him. He was physically killed on the cross, but never really losed His Life. The LORD provided even more proof of this by His appearences.
Injuries of the soul can only be self-inflicted, therefore also cure can be in no-one else’s hands. But those are injuries that have the severity of death:
John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he , ye shall die in your sins.
Therefore no therapist, not any ideology of man can even try to bring the soul back to Life from death. But the Creator of man has that Key. And that is something which He has shown forth as profoundly as can be, both in Words and Action:
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
Mark 12:30-31 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
