The Fine Print

Know what you are being told

Beloved, certainly this is no great mystery. Companies always have a fine print. Every agreement is riddled in fine print. Such words are purposely written to confuse and discourage others from reading them, and even if they are given an attempt to be read, the language is diabolically confusing. In and of themselves they mislead the consumer who is consumed in their new shiny toy. I know I have. With that being said, I now invite you into my HEART...

When concerning fine prints, we become confused, dismayed and discouraged yet we can be assured that with God and concerning all things through God, we will have no such confusion, dismay or discouragement but the absolute truth made clearly known to us.

God, who has long seemed like a great mystery has in fact made Himself most clear and understandable before all people of the earth, that none should say, “God came with a fine print, I just don’t get Him.”

 “There is no fine print in God’s communication with us.” —(Anonymous)

Let us take a long look into the very detailed, precise and simplified Word of God, that is presented before us the human race.

“For this commandment which I command you today is not too mysterious for you, nor is it far off. It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will ascend into heaven for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will go over the sea for us and bring it to us, that we may hear it and do it?’ But the word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may do it. See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess. I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.” (Deuteronomy 30:11-20 NKJV)

[A Quick Sidebar to clarify something to you] The enclosed ending above was a reminder (and till this day is a reminder to all people of the earth) of a promise blessing that God Himself swore upon His very name to Abraham, his seed and all the people of the earth. In which can be taken in and clearly understood in Genesis chapter 22 verses 15-18 (see here). However the whole context is in the whole body of chapters of such history, taken in to clearly be understood from Genesis chapter 11 through chapter 22 verse 18 in which you can read by clicking on here.

From those declaring words in scripture above by Moses the Divinely appointed leader and prophet to the nation of Israel, we can all clearly see from the first word for to the last word them, that God has clearly made His appeal to us and presented to us in clear concise language that in Him there is life, blessing and abundance and apart from Him there is death, curses, perishing and a lack of an abundant life. We can clearly and concisely see that this God people of many religions, sects and cults being all askew in their ignorant and mislead ways of thinking, make God out to be some foreign, far off and incomprehensible entity are wrong, and by such clearly stated words above— They will be dead wrong!

Therefore, as we have the day beloved, let us not continue on in such blindness and ignorance towards God, but rather, seize the opportunity that is clearly presented to us, to receive the Lord and walk in all His ways, that we will dwell with Him and not suffer separation from Him in not choosing wisely— in which is... life! Let us reflect upon such words and such a presentation of what God is offering and what the other choice offers, and give our lives to God... ‘for He is our life and the length of our days.’ Amen.

Let us pray:

Father and God, you alone are the fullness of life! And the extent of our days. We humbly come before you, not confused but acknowledging that you and life in you is set before us in a clear manner that truly is in our mouths and hearts. Forgive us for doing life apart from you, and receive us into your presence and everlasting embrace. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
