The Will of the Lord

The Will of the Lord Alpha and Omega

The Will of the Lord is Eternal Life

All His servants should know the will of the Lord. Peter has the following message for people saved by baptism. Since Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same purpose in mind, because the ones who have suffered in the flesh have ceased from sin,  in order to live the rest of their lives in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of the Lord. (1 Peter 4:1-2) Whoever does the will of the Lord will live forever. (1 John 2:17) Not everyone will enter the kingdom of heaven; the one who does the will of God who is in heaven will enter into it. (Matthew 7:21) Therefore, you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise of eternal life. (Hebrews 10:36)

Before the Creation of the World

The will of the Lord for eternal life is revealed before the foundation of the world. Before the creation of the world, the will of God is for humans to be holy and blameless before Him. (Ephesians 1:4, Ephesians 5:27, Colossians 1:22) How blessed are the ones whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord. (Psalm 119:1) The Lord will confirm you to the end, blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 1:8) The Lord’s people should approve the things that are excellent, in order to be sincere and blameless until the day of Christ. (Philippians 1:10)

Even Lucifer (Satan) was blameless in his ways from the day he was created until unrighteousness was found in him. (Ezekiel 28:15) Therefore, be diligent to be found by the Lord in peace, spotless and blameless. (2 Peter 3:14) How are we to be holy and blameless before the Lord? The Bible answers that question for us. God’s way is holy. (Psalm 77:13) Also, God’s way is blameless. (2 Samuel 22:31, Psalm 18:30)

The Way of the Lord

The will of the Lord is for humans to do that which is acceptable, good, perfect, and right. (Romans 12:2, 1 Peter 2:15, 1 Peter 4:19) Now let us get one thing straight from the beginning; there is not a righteous person who never sins. (Ecclesiastes 7:20) That being said, what does the Lord require from you, but to fear the Lord, to walk in all God’s ways and love Him, and to serve God with all your heart and with all your soul. (Deuteronomy 10:12)

In other words, the Lord wants His people to obey His voice and walk in all the ways that He commands. (Jeremiah 7:23) The people God brought out of the land of Egypt quickly turned aside from the way that He commanded. (Deuteronomy 9:12) He had commanded His covenant to them, that is, the Ten Commandments. (Deuteronomy 4:13) God’s people are to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice. (Genesis 18:19)

Every Word of God

The will of the Lord is that humans understand that they must live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. (Deuteronomy 8:3) The whole law of God is righteous and always will be. (Deuteronomy 4:8) Some laws of God before the resurrection of Christ were not required. (Psalm 40:6) Likewise, there are no longer sacrifices for sins. (Hebrews 10:26) Some of the laws of God were because of transgressions. These laws were set to last until the seed would come to whom the promise had been made. (Galatians 3:19)Also, these laws were set to last until the end of the old covenant. (Hebrews 9:9-10) Therefore, there are fewer laws of God to live by since the resurrection of Christ.

Nevertheless, Satan does not want God’s people living by the whole law of God. Living by every word of God is a problem for most of His people today. Most of God’s people today do not want to live by every word of God. It makes me sad that most of God’s people today do not care that His commandment is eternal life. (John 12:50) Or that the truth of the Lord is everlasting. (Psalm 117:2) Or that every one of God’s remaining righteous ordinances is everlasting. (Psalm 119:160) Or that God’s ways are everlasting. (Habakkuk 3:6) They simply refuse to walk in all the everlasting ways of God. (Psalm 139:24) However, this is not surprising. Since the history of God’s people is filled with many of  them rejecting some of His everlasting ways.
