The Meaning and Purpose of Why We Live

 

 

It was during the mid 1980's that an experience happened to me that has taken me several years to begin to grasp the depth of the profound wisdom of the spoken revelation.

One day while sitting at home during the late afternoon, I received news that two life long acquaintances had tragically been killed in an unfortunate automobile accident.  The two former acquaintances were in their mid to late twenties and they had both died a horrifically violent and painful death.  They were approximately the same age as myself at that time, very young, and had just begun to live their lives.

Meanwhile, after getting married, I had chosen to adopt a much different lifestyle than they and as such, there had been a friendly parting of our ways.  Therefore, I had nonetheless gone in a much different direction than they and had wisely dedicated my life unto the Lord Yeshua, Jesus - while they had continued in their all too deceptive but brief pleasures of sin.

To this end, during the evening of that day of the accident, I felt very disturbed and uncomfortable in my spirit about what had just happened, and I was indeed in a somber but saddened state of mind.  After retiring to bed, I continued questioning and going over in my mind what the actual purpose of life in and of itself was really all about.  At that time, I felt that we only lived on earth for a short period of time with brief moments of happiness and sensual pleasure, but otherwise forces that were in many cases far greater than ourselves usually, but inevitably, dictated the final outcome and quality of our lives.  Meanwhile, I remember just prior to falling asleep, asking the Lord the question, "What is the purpose of our living?"

That same night, while I was fast asleep there came a sudden burst of high-frequency electrical energy that permeated my entire body.  Immediately following this surge of energy, I heard a gentle voice within my mind say, "We Live To Be Possessed By The Holy Ghost".  The next day, and for many days and years thereafter, as both a young and maturing Christian, I grappled for an understanding of what I had actually heard from the voice of Yahweh God.

I have since learned that there is a vast difference between the free-will gentle 'dove like' possession of the Holy Spirit, verses that of the terrifying, subjugating and enslaving spirit possession of that of demons (fallen angels).

As such, God wants us, His children, to exercise our free wills (spirits) and allow His Holy Spirit, without hindrance, to act through our spirits/souls to graciously reach out and minister the Good News of the gospel, that Yeshua Jesus through His Cross and shed blood, can save lost sinners before it is everlasting too late.

"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me." (Rev. 3:20)

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)

"And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" (Romans 10:15)

The only material worldly possession that a mortal human being has to offer the Almighty Living God - who created them as well as all other things, is their individual act and expression of love and obedient faith, whereby exercising their 'Absolute Free-Will' in their yielding to the Holy Spirit... and subsequently accepting Yeshua Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior...magnificently resulting in their eternal life.
