PLEASING GOD

God’s Pleasure is for us to prosper,and be in good health,but our soul has to prosper (3 John 2) , But for that to happen,you have to do your part . This Means you have to live a life that is pleasing to Him.
How? Be obedient to His word, Here is how:

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.《Romans 12:1‭-‬2 》.
REMEMBER THIS :
” And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it”{1 Thessalonians 5:23‭-‬24 }.

LISTEN:
God does not want anyone to perish in hell.
Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God : and not that he should return from his ways, and live? But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.( Ezekiel 18:23-24).
The truth is:
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”.[2 Peter 3:9 ]

GOD REQUIRES EVERYTHING
Revelation 4:11 says,”You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for you have created all things, and for your PLEASURE they are and were created”.
PLEASURE: to be pleased satisfied and gratified with joy and happiness.
•Is God getting pleasure from the life that we are living?
•How does God get pleasure from the life we live?
1. Mark 12:30 Love God with all your Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength.
2. Proverb 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and Mark 11:22 have faith in God.
3. Study and meditate God’s Word and praying with all prayers.
4. Giving God meaningful thanksgiving, praise and worship.
5. Obey God in all things by living by every Word of God.  
•For an inexhaustible list on how to live a life that gives pleasure to God you may consult with your Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation. •Always let the Word of God be the standard for your life. Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be the glory.

WALKING TO PLEASE GOD

“.. We beseech you,brethren,and exhort you by the Lord Jesus,that as ye received of us how ye ought to walk and to please God,so ye would abound more and more. For ye know what commandments we gave you by the Lord Jesus. For this is the will of God,even your sanctification,that ye should abstain from fornication; That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor,not in the lust of sensuality (concupiscience),even as the Gentiles (ungodly) who know not God; that no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter,because the Lord is the avenger of all such,as we also have forewarned you and testified. For God hath not called us unto uncleanness,but unto holiness. He,therefore,that despiseth,despiseth not man but God,who hath also given unto us His Holy spirit” {1Thessalonians 4:1-8}. Then Romans 12:1-2 says it this way,”I beseech you therefore,brethren,by the mercies of God,that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,holy,acceptable unto God,which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world,but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,that ye may prove what is that good,and acceptable,and perfect,will of God”. Finally, Ephesians 5:1-17 gives us a list of things,which I will list a few ,but if you are serious about your walk with God,go and read it all and do likewise,it says,” Be ye,therefore,followers of God,as dear children;and walk in love,as Christ also hath loved us,and hath given Himself for us as an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor… For ye were once darkness,but now are ye light in the Lord;walk as children of light. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth,proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but,rather,reprove them.. See,then,that ye walk circumspectly,not as fools but as wise. Rrdeeming the time,because the days are evil. Wherefore,be ye not unwise but understanding what the will of the Lord is”. The Bible from Genesis to Revelation teaches us and gives us testimonies of how God wants us to walk and live for Him. This is just a few guidelines,so to know more study the word,and for those who don’t know God ,nor His Son Jesus Christ,you can get started,by going to the top of this blog,click in to the salvation page,and then allow the Holy Spirit to lead,and direct your path. Finally as 1 Chronicles 22:19 says,”Now set your heart,and your soul to seek the Lord your God …”.

GODS DISPLEASURE

How reassuring it is to read the Bible, and it tells you that God sees, our efforts to obey His commands; Doing the things that are pleasing to Him, the labor we put in, with patience and endurance, God is pleased. He is also pleased, when as Christians we don’t tolerate or find excuses for evil people, because we should not have fellowship with the unfruitful work of darkness but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5:11). What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? (2 Corinthians 6:14).

 God loves when we study the Bible to show ourselves approved, to rightly divide His word of truth, not ours, and not be ashamed to tell it like it is(2 Timothy 2:15). Studying, enables us to examine the claims of those who say, they are apostles but are not, then you will discover that they are liars, God also makes a note of it when we patiently suffer for Him without quitting (Revelation 2:2-3).

God’s word tells us in the Bible, “Let no man deceive you with vain words; for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience; be not ye partakers of them” (Ephesians 5:6-7). When you are a child of God, especially for a while, you know Our Heavenly Father sees, and knows everything, I just love when He praises, and compliments us before He tells us our faults, and issues that displeases Him. 

What displeases God the most, is to see His children’s love for Him diminish, we don’t love Him like we used to, like when we first received Him. Do you only love Him, because you want something? or is it for show? or the right thing? maybe it’s to impress someone? Now ,if we as humans can tell when someone does not love us, don’t you think Our Heavenly Father, who sees and knows the contents of our hearts, and thoughts will know that the fire, desire, and love behind your praise, thanks, and worship to, and for Him is not authentic(Psalm 44:21; Revelation 2:23). Let’s be real, because He is real, God wants us to go back to how it was when we first received Him, otherwise He has to do something about it(Revelation 2:4-5).

Just do as God asks and requires of us, and we will have the privilege of eating from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God (Revelation 2:7; Revelation 22:2). God’s word my friends never returns void(Isaiah 55:11); God does not lie, nor is he slack with His promises (Numbers 23:19, 2 Peter 3:9). How shall we escape if we neglect God(Hebrews 2:3). Come on taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the person who trust in Him (Psalm 34:8; Psalm 119:103; 1 Peter 2:3).

We are living in perilous times, and the only person that can help us is God, through His son Jesus Christ. Don’t you want to know Him, you should want to know Him, go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make. To God be the glory, praise, honor, and thanks for using me to deliver His message to His people.
