Jesus Christ will save the entire world, all people will believe in Him and be saved.
MALACHI 3:6-7, 10 "I the Lord do not change. So you, 0 descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed ... Return to me, and I will return to you," says the Lord Almighty..."Test me in this," says the Lord Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it." (NIV)
Journal Entry 69 – Dedoc Marks
November 23rd (Thursday) 2017
Ahh, do you here that. No, not my fan. Just, fun relaxing stuff. Not inherently productive stuff, just relaxation.
John 14:1 - Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
EXCEPT I FEEL SO STIFF. Ok, no the doctor didnft diagnose me with osteoporosis or arthritis or something, itfs just that Itfs hard to actually do this stuff because all of my computer stuff is so old and bleegghhh. My keyboard buttons are so stiff that I literally have to smash my fingers into them just to type. I wish I could have a keyboard that just lets me woooosshhh my fingers across all the letters as if Ifm some expert piano player except the piano is one of those cool touch screen things. Imagine those holographic touch-screen screens that movie directors seem to add in, where itfs like this blue hologram and people can like zoom around that. I want that to be my keyboard, of course not that excessive,
Truly, all of this has made me appreciate that torture that is using that scroll wheel on the right side of your screen. Or using that click and move thing with the scroll wheel, you know, the one thatfs TOO slippery. To demonstrate my frustrations, allow me to make this in the form of a graph.
v Too stiff – Scroll Bar
v Just right – Scroll Wheel (If it were rolling)
v Too slippery – Scroll Click
(Seems cheap enough lol. Donft worry, Ifm not so much of a pretentious hipster that I have a wireless keyboard, that onefs wired. I may have a standing desk and a wireless mouse, but Ifm no conformistc just to the things that are good!! c Thatfs what a conformist would say, isnft it?)
Anyways, despite all of these annoyances, Ifm not going to kill myself. Ifm going to get through these days, plow through each one of them individually with my own force. I just need to get past this phase so I can finally get enough money. To make life less stressful and more easier by being able to buy this stuff. I just need to survive, to be here so I can fufiill my God given purpose of existing and just carry on. With the Lord on my side I will survive, even when my breaks are wiped out, even when my lonliness and desire for community are not met and even when Ifm tense, I will trust on the Lord alone. Not on BestBuyfs Black Friday deals, or the latest advanced keyboard or mouse technology, but my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ alone. Amen.
1 John 2:2, And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
Ephesians 2:8-9, For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Titus 3:5, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
What keeps me going is my blessed hope of salvation Heaven, but since Ifm depending so much on it and think so much about it for motivation, it feels like Ifm putting weight on it. With all of this weight on it, all my desires, passions, wants, needs and happiness in life all in my choice to follow the Lord, by my salvation in faith alone, puts a burden on it. While the foundation is infinitely strong (as it is the Lord Himself Jesus Christ), I sometimes worry that maybe itfs not enough. I sometimes worry if maybe Ifm being to selfish and not handling it myself. I sometimes worry whether it will be able to hold all of this weight. Which is why, I find it ironic, it seems every time I try to find my happiness in salvation, most of the time I start to doubt about it.
Mark 9:24 - And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 - For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Ifve always had problems trusting people. My friends would not help me in group projects. My mom would have different beliefs than me. I ask you, Lord, is it good that I donft trust anyone, am I not supposed to trust anyone? I mean, for now, I see it as good because itfs what made me come to you in the first place and believe on you alone for my salvation. I am saved, I am saved. Pheeeewwww. Ok, letfs go over what Ifve been reading.
(REALLY Good, makes me feel good about being an infj)
Why do I always have so many Bible verses in this? Well, I donft want people to read just my stuff, but read the Bible as well. My stuff is simply a commentary on life. The Bible is life, so I have my own works not as my own works, but as the work of God, a commentary on our life found through Jesus Christ of the Bible, faith alone, eternal security of the believer.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Romans 10:9-10 - That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
