Destiny is Eternal - The Reason Why It Is Not Easily Discerned By Human Understanding

Reader comment on item: A Rapid and Harsh Turn against Israel
in response to reader comment: Destiny Again

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jun 22, 2009 at 11:33

Let us begin by asserting that this reader is not endowed nor imbued with any more knowledge of such things than has been given by the wisdom of the Hebrew Holy Bible. Though not necessarily near the end of life (yet having been through a medical episode that could have ended it), enough has been seen that has confirmed much in what has been believed and understood in the Holy Bible.

Only in faith in the Almighty God of the Holy Bible through Jesus Christ does this reader have a sense of the wisdom to make the claim that His wisdom (The LORD's) exceeds the expectations of any humanist understanding. In that vein, one can make an argument for destiny; yet only in understanding that the Almighty God of the Holy Bible is a personal One who seeks and engages each of us who will return that attention in faith, does one gain an appreciation of the destiny found in eternal life.

This reader's ability to make the claim for eternal life comes not from human wisdom, but from believing what the Holy Bible says, and seeing its application come to life in each of its areas of control. There is no personal means to say that this is right by human logic, but in the confirmation of the Truth found in the pages of the Holy Scripture can one make such a determination.

In the micro scale of such things, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ comes with a communing with His Holy Spirit. In the macro scale, seeing the Holy Bible come true in the workings with Israel confirms His influences in such a way that exceeds any mere human expectations. Thus there is the affirmation that a Holy Almighty God does indeed work in every aspect of life, even if there is not belief.

But here is the witness, that if one who has not believed in Jesus Christ before desires to know that a life has more meaning than what can be had as a castaway Muslim (or nominal Christian for that matter), seek Him, Jesus Christ in prayer with the intention to believe, and He will respond with the truth that can change life in a way that no one understand unless they are led by the Holy Spirit through the Holy Bible. If that happens, then there will be a better idea of what destiny means, both individually, and for Israel as well.
