GOD'S WILL FOR OUR DAILY LIVES is an exposition of Christ's sermon, which affirms His teaching as God's will for our daily lives. Not only does it clearly define Christ's commands, and concisely explain every aspect of His teaching, including our spiritual development, duty, righteousness, holiness, and justification, it also affirms Christ as our complete salvation and the supreme authority. Simply put, it is the must-have book for everyone who has a genuine desire to know and understand God's will for their daily life. The three most prevalent teachings within Christendom concerning God's will for our daily lives are: [1] keep the ten commandments, at least in principle, [2] live by principles derived from the New Testament, and [3] listen to your heart for divine inspiration. All three are fatally flawed in that they conflict with pivotal portions of the Bible. These teachings attest to the fact that God's will for our daily lives is one of the most misunderstood issues within Christendom. Yet the Bible clearly states that God now commands us to believe on the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another as Christ gave us commandment. Indeed, Christ challenges those who merely call Him Lord, and insists that it will not be they who enter God's kingdom, but rather those who actually do God's will i.e. believe in Christ, and love one another as He gave us commandment. Paying lip service to Christ is not God's will; trusting and obeying Christ is. Matt 7:21; Lk 6:46; 1 Jn 3:23. GOD'S WILL FOR OUR DAILY LIVES presents Christ's entire sermon, elaborated and expounded with the relevant verses from the rest of the Bible, and in so doing shows His sermon to be perfect, in that it is consistent with the entire Bible. It also attests to the fact that, despite it being one of the most misunderstood issues within Christendom, you absolutely can know and understand God's will for your daily life. It thoroughly explains: Our spiritual development, from implantation to maturity. Our sacred duty in regard to proclaiming, bearing, teaching, holding, and maintaining, God's will. Our daily righteousness concerning Moses' law, works of faith, and Christ's law. Our daily holiness towards God, the world, and people. Our daily justification in relation to man's teaching, Christ's teaching, and the devil's teaching. It affirms Christ as: Our complete salvation, from redemption to standing. The supreme authority, concerning every aspect of the faith. Whether you are a biblical leader, a Bible believer, or a person yet in search of the Truth, GOD'S WILL FOR OUR DAILY LIVES will once and for all resolve any error, delusion, or curiosity, that you may have concerning God's will for your daily life.

God s Will and God s Desire

But even if the reader would insist on a strict rendering of the text, then "before the foundation of the world" does not have to mean: before ... God's grace is not resistible by the lost man because a lost man does not have free will.

Many Christians are Calvinistic, but reluctantly so. They recognize that lost men do not seek God; those who choose to follow Jesus do so because God first chose them. But they are haunted by questions. Why does a sovereign God, who desires that all should come to faith in Christ, choose in His sovereignty to save only some? Couldn’t He just save them all? And if we are “chosen from before the foundation of the world,” then does it really make any difference, in the end, if we evangelize or pray for the unsaved? This book is a must-read for any “reluctant Calvinist,” because it deals with questions about evangelism and the sovereignty of God that typically seem to be left unanswered by the traditional Calvinist and Arminian positions. But it does so with the challenging - perhaps, even uncomfortable - conclusion that our prayers and obedience are a real and vital part of the process of narrowing the gap between God’s will to save some and His desire to save all. And so our prayer-life and our walk with God are crucial, because we, as believers, will be held responsible in the end for who will be saved!

The Master s Voice Hearing and Heeding God s Will for your Life

The book is primarily about God's voice, God's direction, God's guidance, God's protection, and deciphering God's will for your life in these last days where there are many voices competing for our attention. There are those that teach God does not speak today. Then there are those that teach God speaks in many ways and in everything; nature, audible voices, circumstances etc. God spoke in the past, God speaks now, and God will be speaking for all eternity. From the time God spoke the world into existence to now, He has never stopped speaking to and through His creation ? and He will continue to speak throughout eternity. The question is how does He speak today, and who is listening? This book shows, from Scriptures, how to know the voice of the true and living God in these last days of confusion and deception. Our Lord warned us that the world would be characterized by deception in the last days according to 2nd Timothy 3:1,3; and also admonished that ?My sheep know my voice? in John 10:27.

“The essence of Spirituality is Love. Any delineation from this motive is hypocrisy created to destroy.” Author, Will Huttunen show how your Path, Destiny and Planetary Shift is the movement toward Unconditional Love. This book teaches how to take fear and pain and undo the only karmic patterns that create it. It is the repression of yourself. This experience is felt as a surrender of your judgments and a relinquishing of your control over your own Will. You cannot perform God’s Will while condemning your own. As one represses self, the Universe acts in like reply (karma/attraction) and creates un-Lovingness. The more we heal this, the more Loving you and the World will be. “By the standards of the dark ego, Hell is made to keep Earth safe from what it deems as unwanted. Hell is created as a holding cell so that we would not be bothered by parts of ourselves we judged due to The Will's unwillingness to prostitute itself.” “The discipline and obedience to God without Love is domination and control. Your hatred of how you feel is mostly observed as the discipline of God, the righteous control of evil.” “The pronouncement of salvation and the boasting of gratitude and happiness can be seen as The Light of God. Yet notice how willing this display is to actually feel any fear Lovingly. The talk of salvation is empty and fallacious without the action behind it. This empty boasting is not designed to heal. It is here to congratulate itself so to validate its position in power over The Will.” website - spiritandwill.com

Early modern governments constantly faced the challenge of reconciling their own authority with the will of God. Most acknowledged that an individual's first loyalty must be to God's law, but were understandably reluctant to allow this as an excuse to challenge their own powers where interpretations differed. As such, contemporaries gave much thought to how this potentially destabilising situation could be reconciled, preserving secular authority without compromising conscience. In this book, the particular relationship between the Tudor supremacy over the Church and the hermeneutics of discerning God's will is highlighted and explored. This topic is addressed by considering defences of the Henrician and Elizabethan royal supremacies over the English church, with particular reference to the thoughts and writings of Christopher St. German, and Richard Hooker. Both of these men were in broad agreement that it was the responsibility of English Christians to subordinate their subjective understandings of God's will to the interpretation of God's will propounded by the church authorities. St. German originally put forward the proposition that king in parliament, as the voice of the community of Christians in England, was authorized to definitively pronounce regarding God's will; and that obedience to the crown was in all circumstances commensurate with obedience to God's will. Salvation, as envisioned by St. German and Hooker, was thus not dependent upon adherence to a single true faith. Rather it was conditional upon a sincere effort to try to discern the true faith using the means that God had made available to the individual, particularly the collective wisdom of one's church speaking through its representatives. In tackling this fascinating dichotomy at the heart of early modern government, this study emphasizes an aspect of the defence of royal supremacy that has not heretofore been sufficiently appreciated by modern scholars, and invites consideration of how this aspect of hermeneutics is relevant to wider discussions relating to the nature of secular and divine authority.

To whom do we belong – God or the world? Many of our daily preoccupations tend to suggest that we belong more to the world than to God. Even the slightest criticism—constructive or not--can make us angry, and feeling just a small hint of rejection makes can send us into a whirlpool of feeling down. However, a compliment can easily lift our spirits, and even a small amount of success can be exciting. As the author quotes, “often we are like small boats on the ocean, completely at the mercy of the waves.” Whether we feel as though we belong to the world or to our creator, one thing remains true: the world offers conditional love – “I will love you if you make a lot of money,” for instance, or, “I will love you when we aren’t fighting.” God’s love, however, is unconditional, saying the complete opposite: “I will love you if you do make a lot of money or if you don’t,” or even, “I will love you even when you’re mad at me.”

There is a mechanism to all ‘probabilities’ in life, which we call God’s will. This mechanism has its own energy and patterns of possibilities. Those, who succeed, decipher this mechanism and the patterns, which are there for anyone to see. We attain success and excellence, as we align our personal energy with this energy of the cosmic mechanism. God’s will is then in linearity with our wish.
