God's will is clearly defined for all in the New Testament. "Believe on Him whom He sent". After this belief "lose your life in this world and follow Him" and "having food and raiment, therewith be content".
"Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts".
40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
There is no extra revelation from God concerning His Will. He has given us in this church age His Will in Writing and His Spirit to teach His Written Word to us. There will be no signs showing us what job to get, what area to live in, etc. The instructions are laid out in His Word.
I John 2: 15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Rom.12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (God's Will is that we be conformed into His Son's Image, not be conformed into the world's image.)
Gal.1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
1Pet.4:2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
What God's Will is not is to put any thought or planning into this temporary world at all because my friends it will ALL BURN UP AND BE COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN very soon.
Remember every day as you walk with God, listening only to His Word in prayer that the WORSE you have it here for Christ, the BETTER you will have it in eternity.......
God's Will is: Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Phil 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I Cor 7:17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches. Stop wasting the remaining time God gave you down here on improving or even changing your life in the temporary. Whatever your martial state was when you BELIEVED ON HIM, whether married, divorced or single; whatever job you had-STAY THAT WAY and FOLLOW CHRIST. Your personal ambitions are to be His Will. We have demonstrated His Will from His Word above and His WILL has nothing to do with temporary, fleshly pursuits down here.
The best we can look for in this present world is 70 years. What is that compared to eternity? Do you really think you are saved from eternal torment in Hell and at the same time, ignore the entire point of the new birth and the New Testament to focus on the world for these 70 years?
Listen folks, the only Gospel Jesus taught and then later His disciples, resulted in transformation within believers. They dropped all and followed Him. This is not a works based way to get right with God friends, this is the direct result of true belief and saving faith. Jesus never hid these truths...why do all last days "preachers" hide them? This is what Jesus meant when He said that any who count the costs of their belief in Him, are deceiving themselves. This is finding religion friend, not everlasting life.
Common sense teaches better than that........
