Absolute Success

By Atif Himadeh

Can humans achieve absolute success? If we mean by absolute success access to science, the answer shall be humans will succeed in primary, secondary and graduate studies to acquire high degrees. However, scientific qualification remain limited since science exceeds the capacity of any human being. Hence, absolute success to access science in all fields is beyond the capacity of humans.

If you mean by absolute success access to wealth and property, such a success is limited. What is the optimal measurement to richness? Some people may get lucky in their access to billions, is this the absolute success? This success is not the absolute success because the day this human dies he shall take nothing from his fortune. Would this money bring any benefit if he pays off Clerics to pray for him? Would it bring any benefit if it is spent for good deeds? Therefore he will not succeed regardless of success in making a fortune and money.

If you mean by absolute success acquisition of wealth and politics, no absolute success in this regard. You may succeed distinctively and become the president of a small country or great state or federation but your success shall be limited since you will not become the president of all counties and forever.

If you mean by absolute success acquisition of fortune and wealth as well as physical objects and forever, this is impossible. Can humans retain things forever?

God is the only eternal and if we wish to acquire the eternal things we have to take them from God.

Science stands bewildered beyond the grave. Humans are not scientifically aware of what is beyond the grave because those who are gone have not returned to provide us with scientific evidence of what is beyond the grave. When we look at the universe, we feel astonished about how wide this universe and the numerous and countless celestial objects. When wise men refer to their common sense they say, there must be a creator for this universe beyond human imagination. When ignorant men look at the universe, they say that it came by serendipity then correcting it saying it came as a result of an explosion (Big Bang), others say it has been since eternity.

What is the purpose of God to create this universe? Why did he create the universe including plants, animals, humans and angels? We search and examine what is written in books and articles i.e. fossils, looking for facts to answer such questions. As humans are not aware about where they came from and where they are going, it is insane to look for such questions in books written by humans without God’s help.

God who created this universe knows everything and declares his existence and why we cannot  see him. The Bible says that God spoke to a great prophet called the Prophet Moses. Moses climbed the mountain to speak with God. God spoke to Moses for forty days. God taught Moses things nobody knows except God and he asked him to write them and they are recorded in five books of the Bible called Moses books. Moses climbed the mountain and spoke to God three times to learn from him each time for forty days and asks him to write in books. God taught Moses 120 days and this means that Moses learned from God 2880 hours. God showed him objects in the sky and asked him to do the same.

So if we want to succeed in an absolute success, we have to ask from God to give us things which   remain with us forever and this shall be the only success which lasts forever. Whatever we ask from God, he will  not answer our prayers or give us what we ask for. You say why God doesn’t give us what we pray for? The reason is that human beings are sinners and the sin became a separator between humans and God.   1Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness” Isaiah 59: 1-3.

Because of the sin, it is impossible for humans to see the glory of God and if a human being sees the glory of God, he will die. The Prophet Moses asked God to show him his glory. “18And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.  19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on   whom I will shew mercy.  20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live”. Exodus 33: 19-20. The Prophets did not see the glory of God but God spoke to them. God spoke to Prophets from Noah to Daniel but because of the sin, all Prophets could not see the glory of God.

God asked Prophets to offer sacrifices for the forgiveness of sins. Lastly, God stated that such sacrifices are only symbols for the death of Lord Jesus Christ on the cross who is the only accepted sacrifice in the sky for the forgiveness of sins.  29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.” John 1:29 John the Baptist said that Lord Jesus Christ will diminish the world’s sin which mean he will forgive it.

1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high” Hebrews 1:1-3. John the Apostle said 5And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood” Revelation 1:5 Lord Jesus Christ washed us with his blood which was shed on the cross.

Following the sacrifice of Lord Jesus Christ, he gave it to us as a gift we take through faith. 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9 and the Prophet Paul also said 23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.

The eternal life is an endless life which we acquire while being on earth and when we leave this earth it will remain with us forever. So humans can acquire something which is eternal. This is the only absolute success which cannot be lost by humans forever.

In order to enjoy the eternal life, you have to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who died on the cross and shed his blood to forgive your sins and when you ask him by faith to give you the eternal life, Lord Jesus will give you the eternal life as a free gift. Request it now in prayer and get it, ask God in prayer and tell him.. Lord I’m a sinner and I ask you to forgive my sins with your blood which you shed on the cross and give me the eternal life in the name of Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory.
