peace that obedience to Me brings.The choice is, "Do you feed your body and starve your soul"? Especially young people have to make thatchoice & answer this question.Is their body, their mere physical existence & its pleasures really that important to them that they'rewilling to completely neglect their souls & spirits for it? Are they so duped, so fascinated by all thepleasures the Devil has to offer, just like Pinocchio on "Pleasure Island", that they don't realize that Satanis making a spiritual jack-ass out of them?I want people who choose My way voluntarily, and because they think it's the best. Everybody wants alife-boat when the ship is already sinking. But who wants to come away from the superficial partyingwhile the ship is still cruising? Who wants to believe those who say that the ship is going down whileeverybody's still having so much fun? I want people to serve Me because they love Me & choose to serveMe above the other, more shiny options, not only out of the fear of My impending judgments.It all amounts to a choice between true loyalty and basically pursuing your own way.I don't like to make decisions for you. I can help you make them, but you have to decide yourself.They're like tests & ways for Me to find out where you're at, what you're made of & where you stand... Thechoices you make are what you are. They make up your testimony, your witness, they become your wholelegacy & your life. So, don't dread making them, nor shun them or try to sneak your way out of them,since they're so important. Enjoy making them, or at least learn to enjoy it.It's the Enemy, who's trying to get you to dread those choices. He likes to muddle things up, to keep themnot so clear, so nobody quite knows what's going on exactly, in his misty haze of confusion. But I havealways provoked people to make clear choices and decisions with My radical ways, either for Me or against Me, there was no in-between.It's heartbreaking to see people make the wrong choice, but choice is what it's all about.It's always a matter of whether you believe you are your own, or whether you believe that since I not onlycreated you, but have also bought and redeemed you with My blood, you're rightfully Mine. If you acceptthe fact that your life actually belongs to Me, you won't make such a big fuss about Me wanting to useyou and wanting to employ you for My purposes, you figure it's a whole lot better to serve Me than theDevil.History or destiny is constantly being re-written & re-planned & re-shaped by its participants and their decisions. It all depends on each of you. Each one has to fulfill their part. If any party allows the Enemy tofoil the plan, the final victory is going to have to be brought about by some other means, or even by other players... Your place as one of My winners is not guaranteed. Each one's place among the winners & final victors isonly determined by their own constant determination, conviction and decision to keep on for Me & Mealone, no matter what, and if whatever your brother does causes you to stumble or give up, that brother may be held responsible for his mistakes, but
will be held responsible for your own decision to focuson his faults instead of Me. You are what you are by the choices & decisions you make every day, every second, minute and hour,and what you will be is determined by all that. You're not the same you were yesterday because of thedecisions you made today. You're either one step closer towards the goal or one step further away than you were since the last stepyou took, depending on the direction in which you took it.As children of God to whom the Word of God is being revealed, you
as gods, as the Bible says,and your decisions have
impact on your future, than the decisions of unbelievers have on theirs,unless they choose to receive Me and My Word, too. Your future is still in the making, and determined by your decisions, so, why should I influence them byrevelations of what's going to happen? You might prefer it that way, but that's only because you see as achild sees, not as the Father, Who sees what's truly good for you.When there is a choice, choose the true beauty, that which bears My message in it, not that which youthink will please them most.Will you live as a little "king," reigning for a short time in your own little realm of pride and self-righteousness, judging everyone by your own laws and rules, and forever thinking you know better thaneveryone else, including Me, or will you turn around & walk the humble but truthful and honest & sincereroad of a true prince for Me?Choose which road you're going to follow; the high road or the low road, the path of light or the broadwayof darkness, the way of truth, or the slippery track of lies.It's a myriad of little, seemingly insignificant choices you're having to make each day, as to who you'regoing to listen to, whom are you going to follow,
voice and the whispers of
, or the Devil'sroaring cheers, laughter and enticing songs?
