Complication Does Not Come From God

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."


Hurting? In Pain? Lost? Is your life so Complicated that you cannot make any sense out of anything? Come on in.. Join us. We are the Religious. All you have to do is as follows..

Do not swear.
Do not Drink Alcohol
Do not Smoke.
Do not wear makeup.
Women better never wear Pants.
Men better shave.
We do not drink out of plastic, you must only use wood or glass.
Do not eat Meat on Fridays, unless it is the Orange Pass Fest.
Do not mix food on your plate. Meat cannot touch Veggies ETC.
Oh, NEVER watch TV or read Papers. The outside World no longer concerns you.

Got all that? Cool. Come as you are of course, but understand that you better follow all these rules or you will never be saved.. Oh, and if you want to talk to God, you need to go through one of our other "Fathers," "Priests," or "Leaders." They will also be the final word on any topic. They will allow you to know what the Church thinks and says about this or that.. This is some of the things the Lost DO actually hear when they ask "What must I do to be Saved?"

Remember what Jesus said about the Ten Commandments?
"And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live." {Luke 10: 27-28}
You see, God gave us the Ten Commandments. Jesus sums them all up in Two. Why? If you love God with all your being, all your Heart, Mind, and Soul, you will NOT,

Have nor Love any God before God
Commit Idolatry
Take the Lords name in vain.
You WILL remember the Sabbath was give TO us.
Dishonor your Mother or Father.

If you love your Neighbor as yourself, you will NOT

Kill them.
Cheat on them.
Steal from them.
Lie to or about them.
Nor Covet what they have.

If you love them as yourself, you will do none of these things. But you would ALWAYS put them first before you. You will want to Serve God and them. You see, it is Simple.. Jesus told us in John 3:16-18
"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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
Again, He makes it simple to understand when He told us this in John 10:8-11
"All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep."
Jesus said this in John 13:34
"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."
How much did Jesus love us? He loved us so He came for the sole purpose of dying for us. He loved us so that He laid down His Life for us.. It's not complicated. It's not hard to understand. It is not hard to follow. All we have to do is accept Jesus's Sacrifice for us. His Blood for our Blood, His Death for our Death, yet rather, His Resurrection from the Dead for our Resurrection into Eternal Life. That's IT. There is nothing more. There is also no other way. It is all inclusive. It is there for anyone.. Not just those worthy or dedicated enough to learn and follow all the tenants of whatever said Religion. But for ALL.

You see, God makes it simple. He wants a one on one relationship with you. 24-7. He wants you to go through Jesus to get to Him. There is no other way. No other Fathers, Christs, or Mediator. Jesus is it. Sorry, Yes. That includes The Pope, Buddha, Mohamed, or anyone or thing else.

He wants a Relationship with you. You know, a walking, talking, eating with, sleeping with, driving with, daily in good times and bad times, bad times, sad times, and happy times. He wants to be your Daddy. He does not care all that much if you eat meat on Friday. He really does not care that you have Jeans on. He doesn't really care if you are Smoking, Drinking a Beer, or wearing red Lipstick. He wants to BE your Daddy.

Now of course, if while reading His Word, Praying, and Growing in Faith, you start being convicted of this or that, and He asks you to give it up, then by all means do it. He knows what is best for you and He DOES have and Purpose and Plan for you. Most importantly, He LOVES you. YOU are what is most important to Him. YOU. Not what you have done, or what you will do. YOU yourself.. Just accept Him, and He is willing to, and ready to, accept you.

Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"


That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "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 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is opntalk@gmail.com

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
