Do not be foolish, but understand what Gods will is. (Ephesians 5:17) Christ said, “Not all who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ is going to enter the kingdom of heaven. Instead,$ all who do the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.” (Matthew 7:21) The will of the Lord is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2) The Lords will is that by doing right, you may silence the ignorance of foolish men. (1 Peter 2:15) Therefore, those also who suffer according to the will of the Lord shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator by doing what is right. (1 Peter 4:19)
The Lords will is the Way of the Lord
Gods will is for us to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice. (Genesis 18:19) Christ taught the way of ths Lord. (Matthew 22:16, Mark 12:14, Luke 20:21) His followers also taught the way of ths Lord. Now a Jew named Apollos, an Alexandrian by birth, an eloquent man, came to Ephesus. He was mighty in the Scriptures. He was instructed in the way of the Lord. Being fervent in spirit, he was speaking and teaching accurately the things concerning Jesus, being acquainted only with the baptism of John.
Apollos started speaking out boldly in the synagogue. However, when Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of the Lord more accurately. (Acts 18:24-26) How blessed are the people whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord. How blessed are the people who observe His testimonies, who seek Him with all their heart. They also do no unrighteousness; they walk in His ways. (Psalm 119:1-3)
The Lords will is Every Word of God
Gods will is for us to live by His words. The Lord knows there is not a righteous person who continually does good and who never sins. (Ecclesiastes 7:20) Humans are to live by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. (Deuteronomy 8:3, Matthew 4:4) Therefore, you shall keep the Lord’s commandments, statutes, ordinances, and judgments, by which a person may live if they do them; says the Lord. (Leviticus 18:5, Nehemiah 9:29, Ezekiel 20:11, Ezekiel 20:13, Ezekiel 20:21)
If you have warned the righteous person that the righteous should not sin and they do not sin, they shall surely live because they took warning. (Ezekiel 3:21)
If a person walks in the Lord’s statutes and ordinances so as to deal faithfully—they are righteous and will surely live. (Ezekiel 18:9)
When a person executes the Lord’s ordinances and walks in His statutes, they will surely live. (Ezekiel 18:17)
When a person has practiced righteousness and has observed all the Lord’s statutes and done them, they shall surely live. (Ezekiel 18:19)
If a person turns from all their sins, which they have committed, and observes all the Lord’s statutes and practices righteousness, they shall surely live; they shall not die. (Ezekiel 18:21)
When a person turns away from their wickedness, which they have committed, and practices righteousness, they will save their life. (Ezekiel 18:27)
When a person considers and turns away from all their transgressions, which they have committed, they shall surely live; they shall not die. (Ezekiel 18:28)
If a person walks by the statutes that ensure life without committing iniquity, they shall surely live; they shall not die. They shall surely live. (Ezekiel 33:15-16)
Apostasy from the Lords Will
The Holy Spirit explicitly says that in the last days some will fall away from Gods will. They will instead obey spirits that tell lies. They will follow the teachings of demons. (1 Timothy 4:1) During that time, many believers will fall away following every word of the Lord. (Matthew 24:10) They will not allow every word of the Lord deep into their souls. They keep it for only a short period. When persecution or trouble comes because of the teaching they accepted, they give up. (Mark 4:17) Remember, it is the person who endures to the end that is saved (inherits eternal life). You certainly cannot lose what you have not inherited. However, according to the bible, you can lose eternal life by not following every word of the Lord.
