                   In All your Way’s Acknowledge Him

     How many of you know that almost 90 % of all Americans proclaim there is only one God and also the same number of people proclaim that Jesus Christ was the son of God? Next we have 8 % that claim to be Atheist or claim they have no belief in the Spiritual Realm of things. Now lets see, we have 90% and 8% that sum only comes to 98%. What happened to the other 2%? So where does the other 2% fit into the picture. The “other” 2% actually “acknowledge” there is only one God and acknowledge that Jesus Christ was the true Son of God. Have you figured out where we are headed with this yet? 
 So let’s continue by going to Mr. Webster to see what he has to say about this.

To proclaim some thing is to speak of or portray in action. The key words here are spoken and act. When a performer is getting ready for the play he or she must learn the lines and be able to act the part to be played. So it is with the people that proclaim. They have learned how to talk the talk and have put themselves in the acting mode. But once off the stage they take on their true persona. The Proclaimers put on their masks before heading out the door to the Church or Christian functions. Shall we see what the Word of God has to say about these actors? First we have{Titus 1: 6-10}, then {1 John 2: 3-6}. Those two Scripture sets pretty much sum up how the Lord looks at the “Proclaimers”. 
      Let us now take a look at the word ”Acknowledge” and what it truly means. This word is basically self descriptive. To have “Knowledge and Act” on the knowledge which is gained through reading the Bible and the leading of the Holy Spirit. The book of Proverbs is an excellent place to start to gain understanding and knowledge. Wisdom comes from knowledge and understanding. Wisdom gives us the insight on how to apply the truth of knowledge and understanding in the situations which we all face in our everyday life here on earth. Walk in the Council of the Lord by obeying the guidance of the commands and oracles set forth by the Lord for a true relationship with our Heavenly Father.      I will close here for now and hope to talk with you again next week. If you would like to continue with this discussion further please feel free to E-mail and let me know. I hope this lesson was beneficial to you and may the Lord Keep and Bless you.
