Life is a Puzzle...

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

Imagine you are the creator of a most beautiful puzzle.  This puzzle is complete with everything needed.  It is a visual fulfillment of all things to sustain life.  In it you will find everything needed to grow your physical body to a state of strength and health.  In it you will also find everything needed to grow your spirit to a state of strength and health.  This puzzle is a picture of the path of our lives.

At birth we are given one piece of this puzzle.  We do not get to see the cover of the box, so we have no idea what the end result of what this puzzle will look like.  We have one piece and its just this blurry little mess that we cannot make heads or tails of.  It may or may not have any color on it to indicate to us if it might be part of this or that. 

Depending on our environment consisting of our parents and church leaders or lack thereof we begin to grow both physically and spiritually by what we are fed.  When we are fed we get more pieces of this grand puzzle and if we are fed good food from the creator some of these pieces will fit together.
If we are not fed good food, by this I mean food that will only sustain us physically,  we will grow only physically.  We still get some pieces to the puzzle but none of them fit together.  It is extremely hard to begin to see what this puzzle will look like if none of these pieces will even connect together.

As we go thru life we continue to collect many pieces of this puzzle.  Some are fed to us, some we collect thru the mercy of the creator.  Sometimes we could care less what this puzzle looks like or what it could mean to our lives.  Sometimes we feel this inner desire to search out pieces so we can start to understand what the cover looks like.  Until then we can only imagine what the creator had in mind when He formed this puzzle.  We know that this puzzle is complete with all things needed..... so I want to keep searching for pieces.  So because I want to know what the end result of this puzzle is I must search out the desire and purpose for us that the creator intended.

Fortunately for us His desire is for us to find all the pieces to this beautiful puzzle.  Are we searching???

Job 21:14 
 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways.

Job 33:29-33
    Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,

   To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living.

   Mark well, O Job, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I will speak.

   If thou hast any thing to say, answer me: speak, for I desire to justify thee.

   If not, hearken unto me: hold thy peace, and I shall teach thee wisdom.

Psa 145:16
   Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

If we search earnestly from our hearts, the LORD will reveal wisdom and understanding with each puzzle piece given.  These two pearls are spoken of in Proverbs 3:13-35 

13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.
16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.
19 The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.
20 By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.
21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
25 Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.
26 For the Lord shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.
27 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.
28 Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
29 Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.
30 Strive not with a man without cause, if he have done thee no harm.
31 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
32 For the froward is abomination to the Lord: but his secret is with the righteous.
33 The curse of the Lord is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
34 Surely he scorneth the scorners: but he giveth grace unto the lowly.
35 The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.

Imagine seeing this puzzle completed in all its Glory and Honor!!!  Seeing this beautiful Master Plan all in a panoramic view before you and not being able to be in it.  Imagine you are told "You have no cord to connect you."  You see this amazing realm with perfect clarity and it is GOOD.  Every part of your being cries out for it but your puzzle pieces are scattered and make no sense.  There is no connection for any of the pieces.  Not enough time or effort has been put towards seeking the purpose and desire of the Creator for this puzzle to be able to make some sense of what it is suppose to look like.  Then all of the sudden the cover is revealed to you.  You see the end result and it is beyond anything you could have ever imagined.

Rev 21:1-8  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Rev 22 1-5  And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

The above scripture is but a small part of GOD's Plan for you if you have enough pieces of this puzzle connected together.  In other words if you are worthy enough to be a part of it.
To have no connection to the LORD GOD is to be isolated from all that is GOOD.  This is hell.  This is the place of weeping and gnashing of teeth.  A place of outer darkness, there is no light there.

The LORD God is the light of the Universe.

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.

Matt 25:30 
And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke 13:28 
There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
To see this vision that the Word of GOD describes for us.... before our death from this realm of life is of most importance.  You see..........Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  You may have years or maybe its just months or maybe its just afew days.  Whatever it may be.... Please use it wisely.
You will see this puzzle completed and I pray you will be able to be in it and not just see it from a distance.
We are to love our brothers and in doing so we help them in any way we can.  These good deeds we do because of the GOOD that our Father in Heaven is.  The GOOD that He has given us though undeserving.  None of us deserve life eternal.  Each piece of this puzzle, if we ingest it with prayers for understanding and wisdom from GOD, He will guide us to GOODness and GODliness  which becomes our connection to HIM.  HIS purpose is that none would choose to fall.
Deu 5:29 
O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
Ezra 10:8  
And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.
You see when we pass from this realm of life on earth to the next realm of life.......all the stuff you have accumulated in this life will not go with you.  Only what is accumulated in your heart..........your thoughts (Good or not).......your actions or deeds (Good or not).  Everything will be weighed in the balance.
Dan 5:27
TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
Psa 28:4
Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.
Jhn 3:19
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Rev 16:11
And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.
When we have iniquitous thoughts we must be able to identify them immediately and turn from them.
Are you be able to identify iniquity if it entered into you?  Imagine standing before your creator absolutely naked and I mean even without any skin.  Your every everything is completely exposed before HIM.  HE gave you life and if you want to look at it truthfully.......HE has asked very little from us in return.  Imagine the shame or imagine the joy!  We must learn and learn very well what sin is!!!   When we act on these un GODly impulses or whispers it becomes sin and all sin has to be faced before the LORD God (Jesus Christ) and repented of in truth if one is to have salvation.  This is the Grace of our LORD JESUS!!!
Matthew 22:10-14
So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
For many are called, but few are chosen.
Job 36:20
 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.

People are cut off in their place..........whatever place you are in when you die,  this will be your place.  Watch therefore and be sure of your place in salvation.

Romans 4:16 
Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all
Psa 3:8
Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah.
Psa 25:5 
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Luke 3:6 
And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
All flesh shall see the salvation of God, let us pray and work dear brothers and sisters that we might be counted worthy of the Kingdom of GOD.
May our LORD Bless you and keep you......
