WHAT DOES GOD REQUIRE OF MANKIND?

MICAH 6:8=  GOD has shown you, O man, what is good; And what the LORD requires of you; but

to do justly,

to love mercy and

to walk humbly with GOD.

 

 

 

Matt 6:8  Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Matt. 6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Luke 12:30    For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

Bottom line.....Our Father knows what we need.  He will supply it.  How?  Through Jesus Christ.  What are our needs?  Which one is the very most important need that we have.....as fallen humans in this flesh body?  All other needs are meaningless when compared to this foremost need.
 
Our foremost need is to return to  Our transfigured Eternal Spiritual Body that we once had when God knew us as His Spirit Children....before we came into these earthly bodies in this physical realm....due to a previous (unknown to us while in the flesh) circumstance involving that which was counter to Our Father in a time past.
 
When and how does He supply this need?  All who believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as their Sheppard and follow Him, putting Him as the Top Priority in their life....and endure to the end, will receive this transfigured body, either at resurrection, or while still in this flesh body when the time comes that we are changed in a twinkling at the last trump, just before Christ returns as Lord of Lords and King of Kings in all of His Glory. 
 
As Believers we may go through an entire lifetime of poverty, hunger, tribulation.....and we may wonder about this promise in our moments of feeling sorry for ourselves as humans are prone to do from time to time.  (During those times we should concentrate on the ways we can love others...which is key to expressing the Holy Spirit that resides within us....that same Spirit which will make it possible for us to be transfigured.)
 
When we realize that 83 years of our time is only 2 Hours of the Lord's Heavenly time......we see that He does indeed quickly answer our most important need.....which is to be restored back to Our Father.....through Jesus Christ.

 

 

 
 

LUKE 14: 26=If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.   27=And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.  28=For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?  29=Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him,  30=Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish.  31=Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?  32=Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.  33=So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.  34=Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned?
 

The above seems harsh to our modern ears.  But what it means when it says "hate" is that we choose Christ Way over our mother and father's way...over our need for human validation.  Christ comes first.  We love Him the most.  Don't forget that He also taught us that we are to honor our father and mother, and put others first before us....God put it right in the commandments....and many scriptures teach us to love and take care of our family. The "bear his cross" part means our daily sacrifice of self, putting others (who are not evil) first over our desires.  The verse 33 sums it all up...we are to forsake all things by putting Christ at our head, by desiring the attainment of maturity in Christ as our goal, by conforming ourselves to Him as our foremost goal upon this earth....repenting of past ways and walking a new with Him.  We are to love Him more than anything else.  We are to be "needy" for HIM and His Ways.....not the ways of man.  We need to seek His approval first, not the approval of man.  This is something that most American Christians do not understand about their faith.  If God asked them to sacrifice their son, as He did with Abraham.....most Americans would give Him the finger (I hate using this expression, but it is so appropriate to express the attitude under this scenario)....and abandon their faith.....walk away from God.  This is the very reason that most Americans do not understand the potential danger in the radical Islamic religion....because they do love their God more than their life....they are taught from birth.
 
Psalms 73:23-28  So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before Thee.  Nevertheless I am continually with Thee: Thou hast held me by my right hand.  Thou shall guide me with Thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.  Whom have I in heaven but Thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside Thee.  My flesh and my heart fail: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.  For, lo, they that are far from Thee shall perish: Thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from Thee..  But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Thy works.
 
 
ZEP. 2:3= Seek the LORD all of you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice.  Seek righteousness, seek humility.  It may be that you will be hidden in the DAY of the LORD's anger.

LOVE

The second time I received a one on one message from God was after I got to work from a one hour drive from home.  I had experienced an incident which caused me to lose my temper while driving due to the thoughtless and ignorant actions of another.  (I flipped the finger.)  I had been working on a character issue (temper/anger) for a long time.  I knew that losing one's temper and expressing the anger is the bottom rung of murder.  I got to my office and I was so upset at myself for loosing my temper that I cried out to God internally..."I've killed again,...why....why...do I do this?"  Immediately within my head came the words, fully formed and complete:

IT IS BECAUSE THEY DON'T LOVE YOU.  IS NOT MY LOVE ENOUGH FOR YOU?  I DIDN'T PUT YOU ON EARTH TO BE LOVED.  I PUT YOU HERE TO LOVE MY PEOPLE. 

Straight forward and true! So simple.  We were not put here on earth to love ourselves, but to give to others others all that love that we would apply to ourselves.  I immediately turned and typed out the message and will never forgot it....which is amazing because my mind was not blessed well with "memory".
