I Want To Find The God I Used To Know.

I read your e-mail and have extracted the following points, which I believe to be the questions you would like me to respond to:
That is why I am writing to you because I want to know if the Kaballah is dangerous.
Kabbalah CAN BE dangerous if it is practiced apart from a committed relationship with the God of the Bible, whose name is Jehovah (Old Testament) and the Lord Jesus Christ (New Testament).
I want to find that God that I used to know when I was younger. The one that loved me and always protected me. Did I really turn my back on the presence?
When we blame God, or in any way impute evil motives Towards Him, we turn our back on Him. He does not leave us, we depart from Him.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. KJV
I want to find the God that I use to know and have always known
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I AM WITH YOU ALWAY, EVEN UNTO THE END OF THE WORLD. Amen.
5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE.
28 FOR IN HIM WE LIVE, AND MOVE, AND HAVE OUR BEING; as certain also of your own poets have said, FOR WE ARE ALSO HIS OFFSPRING. KJV
and I want to be safe from the mischievous energy as well.
19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: AND NOTHING SHALL BY ANY MEANS HURT YOU. KJV
To submerge ourselves in the spirit world, into words, into works, into studies, is also enticing but I feel that it is scary and beyond us. Is it beyond me?
2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that WHERE I AM, THERE YE MAY BE ALSO. KJV
How can I find a balance ?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. KJV
28 And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, IN THE REGENERATION when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. KJV
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. KJV
Please give me advice
Ask the Lord Jesus Christ ***
a) To forgive you for
a. imputing evil motives towards him, and
b. turning your back on him
b) To restore your personal relationship with him
*** If you do not, or cannot, believe that the presence that you seek is the Lord Jesus Christ, then speak to that presence (even though you cannot perceive him), and, in addition to the above, ask Him his name -- if it is, in fact, the Lord Jesus Christ, or another.
19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, ART THOU HE THAT SHOULD COME? OR LOOK WE FOR ANOTHER? KJV
22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that THE BLIND SEE, THE LAME WALK, THE LEPERS ARE CLEANSED, THE DEAF HEAR, THE DEAD ARE RAISED, TO THE POOR THE GOSPEL IS PREACHED.
23 AND BLESSED IS HE, WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT BE OFFENDED IN ME. .KJV
or point me to any reading that will help.
Read the King James Version of the Bible
