Our Daily Blessings are important!

I remember, when I was a little kid, I would do something wrong and then I would get caught by my Mom and Dad. Of course, I would try and get out of the problem and I would tell them a Lie. Sadly for me, I was never good at Lies and they would always know that I was lying, that just made things worse for me. I have noted before, that I got a spanking very often, for things that I did wrong. On one side, I was very curious about everything…which in the end got me in trouble. On occasion, I would get in trouble and not get the spanking of the century, my Dad would be surprised at what I had done. My Mom on the other hand, was a very stern Woman, straight as an arrow…if you will. My Dad was always telling me to “Think Son!” Let me explain.

On one occasion, I was about 12 and I decided I wanted to make a better plane than the cheap Balsa Wood planes of the day. So I set out to make a Balsa Wood Plane, using a small metal car as the main body. This then became a very complicated job, to say the least. The Balsa Wood planes only cost about 10 cents back then and I went through a number of them, until I got the plane just right! It started off with gluing the wings to the car and then testing how far it would fly, not very far at all. I then glued the back wings to the car and it flew better, but I wanted it to fly long and far. Finally, I got the right set-up and would fly a good 50 feet, but I wanted it to fly farther. I tried the “Old Rubber-Band to the Propeller” thing and I was disappointed. Of course the weight of the car was a factor, that I had to work out and I decided a jet engine was the only way to go. The question was, How do I build a Jet Engine?!

I decided to try using a my Fireworks (Bottle Rockets), yet they were too Powerful and unpredictable and besides that, they were meant to explode in the end. I went trough a number of Balsa Wood Planes and metal cars, before I discovered that, the carnage was horrendous to say the least! I needed something that would burn slower, yet still propel the plane! The Encyclopedias came to the rescue! I had noticed how much slower matches would burn, as I lit all my Punk…Eureka!

Then I decided I would need some sort of Fuselage for the matches to burn in. It had to be light enough and still strong enough to withstand the heat…AH! Back in those days, my Dads Ink pens were metal…once again Eureka! I spent a number of days, carefully cutting and grinding the heads off “Strike Anywhere Matches!” As fuel, the match heads burnt slower and In the pen casing, we had forward propulsion. Fantastic! This had to work! I would make the casing and then glue it to the top of the car in different positions, until the plane would simply Float through the air. Of course my Dad kept wondering where all his Pens were disappearing to. Mum was the word of the day!

Finally, the day came! All was ready, 6 planes, 5 metal cars and 4 boxes of matches later and that didn’t include my depleted Allowance. Air Force…eat your heart out! Oh before I forget, I had used all my Popsicle Sticks to make a ramp of sorts to launch my Plane off of. I had two matches left, the fuselage was full, the Plane had been tested numerous times and this afternoon after school, I would be in my Little fort and ready to launch. I almost wasn’t able to keep my Patience till the 3:00 o;clock school bell rang! Out the door I flew and I rode like a crazy kid to get home!

I got home and put my books up, changed into my Play clothes, said Hi to Mom and ran for my Fort! I took my time now, because I wanted to savor the results of all my work. I carefully put the ramp up to my Forts little window, I carefully placed the plane on the bottom of the Ramp and I grabbed my Last two matches. It was now or never! Time to fly like the big Jets did. I struck the first match, but it fizzled out, so I had one match left, this had to work! I struck the last match and it lit, I carefully applied the Lit match to the long fuse I had made. I threw my Army Helmet on and backed up in my Fort, with my fingers in my ears! It took like forever to burn to the fuselage, but finally it made it!

At first there was a rather long flame out the back and then there was this “Woosh” Sound and the plane began its run up the ramp…”It was going to work!!” Too COOL!! It flew out the window and went about 2-3 feet…and exploded! It was really loud too! I looked out the window and there was this little mushroom cloud building and then I heard my Mom…”Yee Gods and little fishes!!…What was that?!?!”

Needless to say, the explosion was loud enough, all the Moms in the surrounding homes came out back to investigate. My Mom was standing there, hands on her hips and looking most angry “You march yourself into your room and stay there, until your Father gets home!” Personally, I think she was more frightened more than anything else, but I knew a spanking for me was to be had. And yet, for a moment in time, the plane had flown wonderfully and fast too! Until it exploded…which sort of freaked me out some! But it had flown and wonderfully too. I was ready for my Punishment!

Dad came into my room and I was sitting there looking pitifully sad. “Son…your Mother wants me to spank you till you can’t sit down for a day, can you act like I had spanked you?!” I was truly surprised, but glad too, His web-belt really hurt my Butt. “Yes Sir!” I gladly replied. Then he wanted me to tell him what all I had done to get this thing to work…until it exploded! “Son, you need to be more careful, because that could have hurt you! But…I am proud that you thought all of this up and completed it! Did it fly?!” He asked giving me a hug. “Oh Yes Sir…for a maybe a few seconds.” I said. “Next time, ask me about those ventures before you do them, that way I can let you know whether they are a good idea or not.” And I didn’t have to lie about it!

My Dad had told me, “Son, one day is going to come when someone is going to call your name, but they’ll say “Don the Lair”, instead of just Don.” My Mom was the one to tell me, that my Lying was a a Sin. She also told me that I needed to ask the Lord for HIS Forgiveness, even though I would get a spanking, I never forgot that and I don’t lie anymore because of that. It was a good lesson, because we don’t loose our “Relationship” with the Lord when we Sin, we loose our “Fellowship” with HIM. As every Born-Again Christian should know, we will forever Be the Lord’s Children! It is our Responsibility to maintain our “Fellowship” with HIM, otherwise we miss out on some of HIS Blessings for us.

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness

James 4:17 “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

 

Again…My Friends…our Sin will always be between the Lord God and you and I and it is our Responsibility to keep that Fellowship going and it does not matter how often we Pray for HIS Forgiveness! Most do not know, that we should be Praying continously through-out our days. We need HIS guidance in everything and in every way, on every day…HE knows our future!

 

It makes me wonder, how can anyone think for one moment, of keeping anything from the Lord? The Lord knew everything about us, before HE ever created the Universe! HE also knows that we need HIM desperately every day and HE told us so!

 

Jeremiah 17:9-10 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

 

If you want the Blessings that HE is so willing to give us, then we need to be “Right With HIM” First! And that means we must have Fellowship with HIM..always! I do indeed know that it is a struggle to live this life in the manner HE wants us to and many times we forget to Pray…That is the Moment We need to come before HIM and confess our Sin. When we take the time to repair that Fellowship!

 

When we hurt a member of our Family, we are not kicked out and forgotten, we must simply go to that person and asj them to forgive us. It is the same with the Lord, we do NOT loose our place in HIS Family, we loose the close Fellowship with HIM…we loose the Blessings HE wanys for us. As my Mom and Dad used to say…”It’s give and take.” We must do our Part…because HE Loves us!

 

John 3:16 “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.

Our Spirit needs Jesus Christ!

I have asked people before, if they know what their “Spirit” is. And so, many gave me so many different versions, that now I know, most of them have absolutely no idea. Is this a bad thing? Not really and yet, it gets bad later on, simply because they begin to question whether the “Spirit” truly exists for them. As a result they begin to question whether God actually exists, because as we all know, God IS Spirit! Problem is, they have no idea of what their own Spirit is. Such is the problem with all of us having a Physical Body.

When we hurt ourselves, we know we must attend to it and so we spend a great deal of time on our body. With that same token in mind, we have this tendency to believe that our thoughts come from our Brain. That is hogwash to say the least, because our Brain does nothing more than to maintain our body, for as long as we are alive. I have been in surgery, where the Brain was exposed and yet there was never the existence of a single thought, at that point. Of course it was explained, that a thought was not able to be generated because that person was under Anesthesia. Again, that’s Hogwash!

As children we often saw and heard a friend point to their head and say “Kidneys man…Kidneys!” An effort for them to say they are smart. First of all, your Kidneys are NOT in your head, as most of us already know. Second of all, your body works off of Chemical change and is typically directed by your Brain, that is all it does. Have you ever been to the Doctor for a problem and He orders an Antibiotic? Why a Pill? Again, your Body works off of chemical change. Now ask, how many people ever think about this? Few if any!

We are by-in-large Physical beings, while here on earth and yet we still have a Spirit within us. The real problem is because we spend the entirety of our lives, seeing with physical eyes, with physical ears and with muscle movement as we move about. This becomes the basis of our lives here on earth, the Physical. For the most part and for most of us, we spend a great deal of time, dealing with our Body, protecting the body and it’s various parts. We no longer search for a Spirit and so now we are at the point, for many of us, the Spirit no longer matters, because we are too busy with the Physical Body. So why do we never stop and “Think”, or wonder about our Emotions or our Feelings?! Where do these things come from? And then when we are sad, we produce Tears. One being Spiritual and then the resulting Physical Tears.

If it is not from the Brain, where do “Thoughts, Emotions and feelings” come from? They come from your Spirit! First to know is this, your Spirit is in your body, it is WHO you really are and it was created by God. No Spirit in your Body, No life in your body! It is as simple as that!

Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

 

There it is in Black and White, We have a body (Flesh) and a Spirit! One of them we are able to see, The Body, the other is our Spirit, which we are not able to “See”, but is more us, than the body! Again, it is who we truly are. Here’s some more;

 

Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul (Spirit).

 

Ecclesiastes 12:7 “Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”

 

Two Passages of Scripture that, tell it like it truly is for us. A Physical Body and then there is our Spirit, both different, yet together as one! Does this make any sense to you? For instance, as I have grown older, inside I still feel young. Now this can be a problem to a degree, we must be very careful, one FEELS young inside, but is OLD ourside. Tossing the body in a dryer will not take the wrinkles out, or remove the fat…right?! The Physical body has limitatioons, that the Spirit does not have. WOW….what a concept right?

 

Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

 

Again, this is an example of the two, existing in one body. The Truth be told, for all to see and know! On a more ominous note, when a person dies, IS there any more Personality, Character, etc.?! Of course not…because the Spirit, is no longer in the body, it has returned to God, who created it to begin with! Does this fianlly make any sense to you, when in the Bible it says “The Intent of the Heart”?! It is speaking of the “Spirit!” Remember, your body can NOT Think or actually have feelings! It is this concept that we see when the Bible says;

 

Ephesians 5:31 “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

 

Thier Spirits are United as one, in Marriage, according to the Holy Word of God. This is just another example of the fact, that each of us have a Spirit…inside our bodies. Which then returns to God when the body dies or is no longer needed. We bury the body and the Spirit of that person returns to God.

 

Suddenly, we understand that Sin is of the Spirit, yet there is a consequence for it…in our bodies. Think in terms of Famine, Pestelance, Pain, etc.. As you can surmise, Sin is generated by us in our Spirit…and the action is carried out in the Physical. That is the same things as “The Intent of our Heart” is seen in the physical world. Our actions are the result of what we think with our Spirit! So what does this say about our Character, our Personality?! Right?!

 

Jeremiah 17:9-10 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

 

As we are able to see, according to what has been said here and in the Bible, Our Sin is what dooms you and I! It is the Blood of Jesus Christ, from HIS Cross, that covers our Sin and is the only way for you and I to be forgiven and to see Heaven. It is our Spirit that goes to Heaven, our Body stays right here! Your Sin must be cover by the Blood of Jesus Christ, you must ask for HIS Forgiveness of your Sin! NO Blood of the Lamb of God…NO Heaven! Plain and simple, yet it IS the TRUTH!

 

Now that we understand that each of us have a Spirit, it changes the perspective we have of the Sin of Adam and Eve. They ate the “Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.” In other words, we know the difference between what ever is Good and what ever is Evil, we have the ability to choose one or the other. And that is again, from Gods own lips to our ears. Or aws we read in Revelation…

 

Revelation 2:29 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

 

The Lord God Almighty, speaks to the HEART, or the SPIRIT in each of us, that it is our Spirit choosing Sin, therefore, it is our Spirit that must ask for Forgiveness and be cleansed by the Blood of Jesus Christ! Please know this, every person that is born, will one day die…the Body ceaes to function. The Spirit however is required of God and will go to be before God…Then will come the Day of Judgment! Each and every Spirit will be Judged according to whether that person accepted the Gift of Eternal Life or not, through Jesus Christ. In other words, was that persons Sin covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ from HIS Cross on Calvary?! My Friends, it is our Sin, that stands between The Lord God and us…there must be a decision made…either for Jesus Christ…or just ourselves. With Jesus Christ, there is Eternal Heaven…with only ourselves there is Eternal Destruction. It is one way or the other!

 

I simply can’t state it enough, our Sin is the reason Jesus Christ Died on that Roman Cross, to shed HIS Blood to cover our Sin. That will make us presentable before such a Just and Righteous God! The disposition of our Sin…is the crux…of this life we live! Jesus Christ Saves! We must choose! And we must choose for just ourself, no one can help you with that…it is up to you! No one is able to Pray you in the Heaven!

 

John 3:16 “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.

Love will forever Trump Sin!

First of all, may I give a Heart-felt ‘THANK YOU’ to every one that wrote me with thoughts of Encouragement, with Love and caring! I never wrote to fulfill my own need to be thought about, by anyone, except my Lord and Savior. I wrote because the Lord would ‘Spiritually’ tap my shoulder and say, “Did you see that or do you remember that?” And it was always something that would touch my heart in some way, even back when I was a little kid.

I remember when I was 3 years old and my Dad was stationed in Tachikawa Air Base, shortly after the War. My Mom was taken to the Hospital in Tokyo for an appointment and so one day, my Dad and I walked to the Train Station in town to pick her up. I remember walking along beside my Dad, holding his index finger, which at that time, felt like a log. I am guessing it was in the Fall, or maybe a just cool day in winter, not too sure, but I was proud to be walking with my Dad. Some where along the way, I saw an elderly couple walking towards us and they were holding hands. They must have been married many years, because they resembled each other, gray hair and all. They had a slight smile on their faces and all I could do was to watch them, to stare and marvel, so to speak. Obviously, they were “In Love with each other!” I am still not too sure how I knew that, but I just did. Since that day, right up to this day and time, I would think about that couple…That is the kind of Love I want!

Of course, I learned about Love as I grew older, yet in those days, things were pretty strict on showing affection in Public. There was always a “Time and Place for everything” and that was always respected. Yet, to this day, my closest thoughts were about Love and being Married now, I Love to show my Wife, that I sincerely Love and respect her. My Wife and I have been married now for 43 years, this coming August and I Thank the Lord for her everyday. I have THAT kind of Love now and lest I forget to mention…I have the Lord and HIS Sweet Love as well. As a matter of fact, I continually Thank HIM every chance I have…I have not complaints! I also know, that if there is any kind of failure, in my Relationship with my Lord, it is always my fault…yet HE is always willing to forgive me and patch things back up for us.

As you can tell, it is always my own Sin, that messes our relationship up. That is until the Holy Spirit lets me know, I messed up again! I hate to hurt my Lord in any way, but I am a human being.

Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

 

I know, it is my Sin that took my Lord to that Cross on Calvary, where HE bleed and died, so that I could come before HIM and ask for HIS Forgiveness…of my Sin! HIS Precious blood then covers my Sin and then it is thrown into the Sea of Forgetfulness! How Loving is that?! And I know that every single Sin I have ever commited in my Life…is Forgiven by HIM! My Home is in Heaven with HIM and I have a real hard time…waiting to get there! Now THAT is LOVE!

 

I know that I am older now, but in HIS Hands, I am a roaring Lion, I am strong, I am confident! I know there is coming a day, when I will have a Body that never tires, no more joint pain, no more eyes that don’t want to work correctly. I will run and jump, maybe as well as I did when I was a kid, I can only dream of that now.

 

I also know, all of my Pets will be there as well, HIS Love for us never wavers, never gets tired, never dwindles or becomes faint. In my old mind, because of this Love, I can see all these things, I inately know what things will be like and so, I look forward to each and every one of them! I will be excited to see all those of my Family there as well…as well as many of you too! Like I said earlier, I have a hard time waiting!

 

One must take the time to consider, why this life here on earth, is the way it is. You must also remember this; 2 Corinthians 4:4 “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. There it is, in Black and White, from Gods own Lips to your and my ears! Our lives here on earth are influenced by Satan and his Ilk…Yet Jesus Christ lives today and brings us a way out, to Life Eternal with HIM in Heaven. Once again…THAT is LOVE! I want THAT Love!

 

Years back, many of you will remember this as well, we had “Love Songs”…real LOVE SONGS! I was with a Band once and we would turn the Blue Lights on, as the Dance would begin to end for the evening andf we would sing 4-5 Love Songs. “Surfer Girl, Blue on Blue, You are my Special Angel, and the like…the girls would almost faint, at the thought of THAT kind of Love! As the Holy Word of God says “God IS Love!” Sadly, today, there are NO Love Songs like back then…does that tell you anything?!

 

Matthew 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”

 

I must admit, that is the case with this world today…thing is…it doesn’t have to remain that way, there is a way out…Jesus Christ! I must guess, I am a True Romantic, Weddings still make my Heart skip a beat…Jesus Christ is alive today and HIS Love is still available to anyone! That truly shakes up my Heart!

 

I still listen to all those Old Love Songs, they’er recorded on my Phone. So every morning, I make a special cup of coffee for my Beautiful Wife and I and we sit on our Country Front Porch. We talk and spend time together, chit-chatting and Praising the Lord for evey new day and all HIS Loving Blessings! If you spend all your time Praising and Thanking the Lord, there is never any time for complaining. Getting Old on this earth IS Tough…I keep thinking to myself…I am getting closer to my Home in Heaven…that always makes everything better!

 

Before I was Born-Again to my Lord, I was a very angry and hostile man, the Military taught me that, along with a time in ‘Nam! I had bad nightmares and was always paranoid around people, always watching for the ONE that would come up against me, once again. I was stressed out all the time, because some where, someone would attack me, I had to be ready! I would never trust anyone, except my Wife. My existance was bleak and fore-boding, to say the least. I hated everyone! I was an excellent shot, knew Marttial Arts and weapons, I was always giddy for the fight, if you will. I was punched, stretched, tired and sore all the time…and then one day…something special happened!

 

I KNEW I was wrong, I was back in the world and all these people were my people, why should I fear them?! Most of all, I was simply Tired! I couldn’t find a way out, the Sun never shined in my world, I was capable of a fight, yet my war was already over. What was I doing, why was I this way?! My Mom and Dad popped into my head once again and what little I was able to remember…was the Lord and everything they taught me. I was afraid to sleep, fearing the dreams of all that I endoured overseas. I finally began to Pray! The Lord and I got on my little Train (My Mind if you will) and it was full of bags. Each bag was filled with my Sin!

 

At first, I watched as Jesus opened and pulled out my Sin from the Bag, I quickly became horrified with each and every bag HE opened! I began to cry and begged HIM to stop…HE was looking at all MY SIN! Then I noticed that HE was crying…but HE was crying for…me. I can not remember how long this took, but finally HE had thrown each and every bag of MY SIN, out the door and it was gone! All I could mutter was, “I am soo sorry Lord!” HE turned to me and put HIS arm around my Shoulders and held my Head to HIS Chest and the Tears began to be wiped away. “I Love you Son, I am, always here for you!” The next thing I knew I was back in the night, my face was wet with my own tears, but my Heart was light and I was light. “Thank YOU FATHER! For saving me!” I have been Praising and Thanking HIM ever since and I will continue that into Eternity! Now THAT is LOVE! From HIM to my Heart! From my Heart to HIM!

 

My Friends, do I get tired and worn out?! You bet I do, as you have seen in my Articles. I am now re-invigorated, refreshed and ready for whatever task the Lord has for me. It was your Emails that showed me HIS Love once again…your strength became my Strength! LOVE is everything!

 

So with this article, I want to say Thank You so very, very, much! I am not alone, I have my Lord and Savior always…and I also have ya’ll! I will continue to write for my Lord and I will always remember your outpouring of Love and concern! I have thanked the Lord repeatedly for those Emails! May the Lord Bless and Keep each of you in HIS capable hands! With LOVE…Dontwobears

You gotta know or you won’t go!

I remember as a kid, there was nothing quite as exciting to see, than Barnum & Bailey Circus, coming to town. I was beside myself, hoping we would be able to go and see all the acts under the Big Tent, all the rides to be enjoyed, the food and most of all the Cotton Candy and Sodas. I also remember that all my Friends were in the same boat as I was and we would spend all our time talking about the things we wanted to see and do. The only thing standing in any of our way was the cost, we all belonged to Military Families, so money was always tight. Somehow and someway, my Mom and Dad had expected the event and had put some money aside for us all to go, I was totally thrilled!

Once the day came, we jumped in our old Buick and went to the Circus! The music was blaring and the rides were running and I was allowed two rides, one Cotton Candy and a ticket to go inside the Big Tent with my Dad. We had seats on the second row, right in the middle! I can not tell you how amazed I was watching all the acts, my mouth dry, as the Trapeze artists flew through the air so gracefully! And everything was more than I had expected, until the clowns came out, that is. At first they were funny and I giggled out loud. Then two of them came right up in front of me, leering through their make-believe funny faces…I found them to be horrifying! I could see their painted on smiles and yet their real smiles did not exist…it was a false smile and then they had a rather heinous, almost evil laugh! I backed up in fear and hid behind my Dad, all the while He was telling me it was all in fun.

To this very day, I do not like clowns of any kind, they are a deception, a false funny face! It would appear that most kids like clowns and their antics, I would rather not see them at all. In my mind they are a sinister lot, of make-believe! In almost every case, I do not like being “Lied to” in any such way, I prefer the truth! I would have to guess that has followed me in many areas of my Life and yet as a little kid, I had try to lie to my Parents. They would always catch me in my Lies and there would be a consequence each and every time. In high school, I remember going to church one Sunday, where I read the following Passage of Scripture;

Luke 21:8 “And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

 

As with these verses, the Lord did not want me to enjoy clowns, much less anyone that would Lie to me or anyone else! And as we begin our walk in these “The Last Days”, we find that there are Liars-par-excellance everywhere! Sadly enough, we find them in the Pulpits all around the country! They Preach about Wealth and monetary gain, the “Prosperity Gospel” and others love to Preach about how wonderful each and every one us are! When every Born-Again Believer already knows, we are as “Filthy Rags” before such a Righteous and Just, Lord God! They know we should be groveling in the dirt, hiding our faces and begging for mercy from the Lord! And every single bit of our being is over-flowing with our own Sin! My Readers already know, I spend a great deal of articles, talking about our Sin and it’s effects of our lives, how it separates us from the Lord, destroys our relationship with HIM.

 

We know, that if our Sin is not covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ shed on HIS Cross, we will spend Eternity in Hell and then the Lake of Fire! We know that these places were originally created for the punishment of Satan and his ilk, it was not meant for us! And we know, that Satan and his ilk are Sin! They espouse everything and anything that is evil! We also know, that the majority of the world will follow Satan and his Ilk…straight into Hell! It is because of this, that I spend so much time writing from the Word of God, about Sin! Our Sin is the one thing that stands between us and the Lord God! It is the one thing that will doom you and I forever! And as I read the Word of God, I can plainly see this, it is the fulcrum point of our entire lives and one that must be acknowledged and dealt with!

 

I know that most people do not want to talk, much less think about this subject matter! Problem is, the Time is so very short, before the Rapture! Our decision on our own Sin, is the one thing that will determine whether we go to be with the Lord in Rapture…or we are Left Behind! As “Watchers on the Wall” we see the Dawn of that day! We see the Lord is about to make a very quick apperence and take the True Believers away from this earth, to be with HIM in Heaven. Anything other than going in the Rapture means they will have to go through Death. And according to the Word of God, there will be a great many, that will have to die here on earth, even those that come to the Lord after the Rapture!

 

Just between you and I, I have real hard time, trying to imagine how scary and fearfull the Tribulation will be for anyone! To witness, first-hand, the Wrath of the Lord God on the people of this world!

 

And then I begin to understand, that this world is not our home, it is so greatly filled with Sin and death! Every act of evil is being played out, every day, right before our eyes! The most heinous of acts of evil, are every where and being commited by ordinary people, caught in the clutches of Satan and his ilk! They are decieved beyond common sense, doing things that they know are wrong, dumbed down by the words of so many people, that have hearts of evil! Does this make more sense to us, today about the “Great Delusion of God?”

 

2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 “And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

 

Is this scary or not?! The “Damned” will be destroyed! That my Friends is so serious, I have no other words! Can you say, that is exactly everything that is taking place right now…today…all across this globe?! It is right before our eyes and it is not something any of us…are able to miss! It is absolutely every where, our Government and even our churches! This my Friends, is Satan already at work, destroying everything, that we once saw as good and for many, things that were called Noble, even Sacred!

 

Matthew 24:37-39 “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 

This not anything to sneeze at, or to take lightly! In the days of Noah, before the flood, everyone was busy doing everything normal. If you look closer though, the Sin of the World was so bad, it reached the Lord God!

 

Genesis 6:5-9 “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

 

I do not believe that we missed a single thing here…God hates Sin! God hated our Sin back in the days of Noah and God hates the Sin today! I believe that the Sin of mankind has reached the Lord God once again and this time…it is going to bring the destruction of mankind! Not with a flood, but this time with Fire! As we all know…Fire destroys everything! Or maybe you know nothing of Sodom and Gomorrah! Maybe that would be a good place to research and find out for yourself! Genesis 19

 

My Friends, we must understand something here! Again, God hates Sin…our Sin! We either get our Sin taken care of by Jesus Christ and HIS Blood…or we will die continually in Hell because of our Sin! This is an Individual decision and no one is able to change that for you…it is all on YOU! It will be…one way or the other…Jesus Christ or not…Heaven or Hell and then the Lake of Fire! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY! YOU CHOOSE JUST FOR YOU! Jesus Christ…or Satan! Just so you know, Satan and his ilk…HATE…YOU! Why do you think they want to make sure you go to Hell with them?!

 

Our Sin…I am going to continue to write on this subject matter, for as long as I am able…It is that Important! You are correct…God IS a Loving God…yet HE is a more Just and Righteous God! Go ahead and enjoy your Churches and how Holy they make you feel! Just make sure you are forgiven of your Sin by the Blood of Jesus Christ…shed on HIS CROSS AT CALVARY! Your name MUST be found in the “Lambs Book of Life”…otherwise no Heaven! Just saying ya’ll…give it some thought!

 

John 3:16 “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.

Where is all the FUN?

So…I’ve been watching the news lately, or at least the news that appears to be truth. Again, we see diseases running rampant everywhere, like in the public swimming pools…Crypto. Or we may hear about Ebola raising it’s ugly head in some African Country. We still battle MRSA in our hospitals and even new ones, that seem able to resist our Antibiotics. We hear about metal particles in our food, as well as many other horrifying objects, like bugs and animal parts. And these are but a few and it’s to the point, that we fear Restaurants and other eateries…public areas we thought would always be safe. And these are but the small things, things that we thought we could control and abolish, how messed up is that…right?!

I hear now and then, yet more so on the internet, how so many people do not read, nor believe the Bible, God’s Holy Word to us. That always makes me wonder about these people, mostly because everyone believes they have such high levels of Intelligence. I am always moved by this, because the Holy Word of God, reveals that in these days, the Last Days, these things will take place.

Matthew 24:7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.”

 

These, most of the Bible Students will recognise, wars and conflict in most of the world. And still as yet, the majority of people everywhere, do not know why…the real reason why! How readiable a fix there is, yet why so many are not willing to listen and take serious note.

Luke 22:11 “There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”

 

As I wrote above, but do you understand, these “Pestilences” come from other people, people that fail to bath themselves or use good hygene, that care so little for anyone else around them. Now if you should ask them about this, “Oh no…it’s not me!” This is mostly due to the fact, that they fail to understand anything about their bodies, nor will you ever find them reading about personal Health. We are constantly bombarded by Bacteria and Viruses, that invade our bodies…please view yourself as a “Bag of fluid and bones”. Just how easily are we invaded by these Bacteria and Viruses?

 

We already know, that Bacteria is present in our bodies, yet these bacteria are kept in check, to maintain a certain level so as not to be toxic to us. Staphylococcus Aureus is on our hands, in our nose and throut and into our Lungs, again it is kept in check. Personally, I believe this is the work of the Holy Spirit! And this is to only name at least one, but what about E Coli in our stool, do you remember Mono-Nucleousis…Hmmm! And the young do not worry about STDs, unless they get it! Are you now worrided any more, than say…yesterday?! Then we have TB (Tuberculosis) coming around again…right? How many of you own Cats, do you know about “Cat Scratch Fever?” Then we have the ever present bugs, Mosquitoes, Horse-Flies, Spiders and Scorpians…How about now…worried yet? Of course many of these things were almost irradicated after the introduction of Anti-biotics. We have used Anti-biotics so frequently, that many of these are no longer working for us!

 

We have gotten to the point, that many bacteria have been cared for through Anti-biotic therapy and now it’s at the point that Medical Professionals are wondering, if this therpy is modifying bacteria, to even think maybe a new species of bacteria has spawned. Think in terms of “Bacterial Modification!” Now how about that idea of our bodies being “Bags of fluid and bone?” It’s scary to say the least!

 

Parents, how about that child being sick, throwing up, diarrhea, also everything in their little noses. Do you thrown their dirty clothes in the Washer? Of course you do, warm or hot water then becomes a haven for the growth of bacteria, did you cleanse the easher after that?! Or did you simply do another load of wash afterwards…hmmm…bacteria onto your clothes! And so now you wonder how you ended up sick too. The new introduction of pestilences! “Well…I can’t think of everything ya know!” We could also name Dishwashing as well. “I am very clean when it comes to cooking and eating things!” I mean you used Dawn liquid and you scrub everything…right? I just wonder if you know, just how much bacteria is still on your dishes, even after the dishwasher! “Well, I use clorox!” That’s wonderful, your moving in the correct direction! Did you know that clorox will not kill all bacteria?! We could go on and on, but I believe you get the idea.

 

So now, lets move some time later. The Rapture has taken place, everything is moving back to normal, or so it would seem for the moment. According to the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will have been removed by now. Bugs and vermin are everywhere, fleas will become rampant, along with ticks and other unwelcomed guests. How many gallons of repellent will be required to keep them at bay and for how long will they last? How many gallons of clorox will be needed, just to keep the Bacteria and viruses at bay, as well?! Hmm…seems thing are getting way out of hand…right?! I would believe many will be getting to the point of, it’s bigger than me, I can’t fight it anymore! Ya think?!

 

Please don’t listen to me or anyone else that spreads the Word of God…you know better…right?! Just to let you know, you have seven years left…that’s 7…and things ain’t going to get any better! Your an Intelligent person, as are all the people of the world! You already know what’s best for you! You can do this! Well….no ya can’t! That is what the Bible says!

 

All those church-goers, those Duddly-Do-Rights, Bible-thumpers and the like, screaming their vile ideas, as if that was truth! Then again, if you really think about it….they aren’t here any longer…right?! Of course, you never gave the Bible a single moments thought, you know more than God does, right?! “I ain’t never seen God! Probably doesn’t exist! Them Holi-rollers are full of it, I’m glad they are gone!” Just seven small years more…but who cares as long as I’m having fun! Is your fun, truly “FUN”? Or are you just kidding yourself? Just a question ya’ll.

 

If the world is having so much FUN…then why are there wars? Are wars FUN? Why is there Pestilence…is that FUN too? Do you ever get the feeling someone hates you, with the greatest hate there is?! That is NOT God! I keep saying and eriting these same verses for a reason;

 

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

 

Life does not have to be difficult and hard! No one in this world wants to be hungry or sick, no one wants to be helpless…reread the verse above and then think about it! Are you indeed…Right with the Lord?! Here’s one more verse for you to think on;

 

John 3:16 “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.

Can you see the Light of Day?

Habakkuk 2:1-3 “I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

I had to re-read this passage of Scripture, not once but 3 times! Considering all the Prophecies that are coming true today, all across the Globe, I was dumb-struck so to speak.

How Prophetic is that?! Please understand, I have recently had eye surgery. I first had a cataract surgery for my left eye, boy was it getting bad. Anyways, my left eye was doing better there-after and about 4 months ago, my left eye did something strange. If I were to look at anything straight and level, I would see a Blip or better, a Sine wave. Little did I know, that was not so strange for the Opthalamologist, I had a membrane that developed on that back of my Retina. So I was scheduled for left eye surgery once again, a “Epi-Retinal Membrane Peel.” It’s not as bad as it sounds, yet if left untreated, I could loose vision in my left eye.

I had never taken my vision for granted, yet there were things that I had not counted on taking place, putting my vision in jeopardy, Please understand, as an American Indian, we should have great vision, at 18 I could count the hairs on a fleas butt at 5000 meters. HA HA!! Now that I am old, my vision is more critical in my Life. I thank the Lord for HIS Wisdom and HIS Hand of Healing! It will be a little while before my vision returns to full, but I am again so very Thankful to the Lord.

I would like to point out, that the Holy Word of God, is full of Passages that speak of vision, seeing this or that, that vision is so important. A great deal of Escotology centers around being able to “See”. We often read about being ‘the Watchers on the Wall.’ So as you see, vision is critical and it is not always the vision with just our eyes, but with our hearts as well. Israel as a Globally recognised nation, the unrest in the Middle East during the Last Days, Jerusalem returned to the Jews, etc.. Best of all, being able to read the Word of God and learning to understand it, the Prophecies that have already taken place and those still to come. And what about sharing the Word of God, does this not require that one of you is able to Read? As I have been saying vision is critical in the Word of God and yet how much of our daily lives do we take for granted, like vision or hearing?!

This is not to say, one must be able to read, yet one can hear the Word of God, even though they can not see. The mind that is set on the Lord, will have eyes that are able to see and know the Truth. One that does not see with eyes, is able to see the truth found in God’s Holy Word to us. I am so happy to be able to see better and better as each day passes and yet I know, my Heart is able to see all that my eyes are not to see and that is the Wisdom of my Lord.

How odd is it, that there are so many in world, that are not able to see what is right in front of their faces?! The Word tells us that the Majority of the world walk that Highway to destruction, they do so willingly! How odd again, that they “Choose that route”, rather than to give their hearts and lives to Jesus Christ?! Yet if you ask most people, they will tell you, “Oh yes I believe in God”! My ususal reply is, “the Devil believes in Jesus Christ too”, problem comes when you see the surprise on their faces. That is the moment that you know, they have never known Jesus Christ, as Lord and Savior! So then the question is, what do we do about that?

It is no surprise tom anyone, that these people must first HEAR to the Truth, that gives the Holy Spirit the opportunity to Convict that Individual of their Sin. People already know about their own Sin, the Problem is how to turn to Jesus Christ and HIS Blood to cover their Sin. There is NO other way to the Father! As I have said before, these people need to see the Broad Highway they walking on, it leads to Eternal Destruction, sort of like watching Zombies shuffle along. We first must awaken them from their slumber, to see what all is going on around them and to let them know just how short the time is! Once they are awake, then we must offer them the knowledge that we possess about Salvation through Jesus Christ. After that, we are done, everything is in the capable hands of our Lord Jesus Christ.

One of the problems with Humans is, that we continually have that “Hope” factor with us as we live. The next problem is that, in Hell and the Lake of Fire…there is NO HOPE! That aspect, that we have lived with all our lives, is removed. Once in Hell, there is no way to do anything over again. If nothing else is able to scare you, that should be the ultimate one! Imagine for a moment…NO HOPE! It makes my mind scream…to say the least! This brings me to a point, about the decievers in the Pulpits…can you imagine where they will be?! Can you imagine what this world will like, AFTER the Holy Spirit is removed?!

Mattew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

The answer has always been there in Black and White, for anyone to read or hear. Oddly enough, in Revelation it says, Revelation 3:22 “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” And how long has the Holy Word of God been around? For at least 4500 years! You would think more people would know what is in the Word of God, would know the absolute Truth! In this, we now know, those that perish, have chosen not to accept the Word of God and will not accept the Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ! How sad is it, that so many will die forever, tormented in the knowledge, that they had a chance to accept Jesus Christ. They had as much of any opportunity as you or I!

 

Where is your Home?! Please do not tell me, instead know it in your Heart and then go out and tell others! If nothing else, know that Jesus Christ…KNOWS your Heart and HE knows where your home truly is.

 

John 3:16 “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.

Our Time is Crazy late!

This morning I was up about 0530 hrs, I sat out front of my house and spent time with the Lord. My effort was not in question, the Lord was there with me and talking. HE spoke of things going on right now, all across the globe, not just in the USA…but everywhere! I kept hearing, “Do you see what is going on? Are you understanding these things? Do you know the hour?” It kept ringing in my ears, so to speak, like the alarm of a clock, meant to awaken me. I felt the need to write these things down and try and share them with others that Believe and know the Lord.

At the same time, I began to feel some sadness creep into my Heart, because I know the Hour is late and far too many people want to know what is going on, yet they refuse to come to Jesus Christ. It’s almost as if, they wish to wait till the very last moment and then make their decision for Christ. How strange is that?! Almost like “Tempting Fate”, not to take them before that exact moment, have fun right now and then I’ll be happy to be serious and accept the lord…Then!

I came back inside and began to re-read Zachariah and Ezekiel 38-39, simply because of all that is taking place in the Middle East, in that last few days. In my humble opinion, all that I read, is beginning to take place just as those Prophecies described. In a way, it was very alarming! And so now, I am sitting here writing all that is going through my head and Heart and I wonder, How many others are feeling the exact same things as I do?! Prophecies are beginning to take shape, exactly as the Holy Word of God stated it would. And one of my thoughts popped back in my head, how many others see this as well?!

It is as was spoken in the Scriptures, about being a “Watcher on the Wall!” From that perspective, which is like seeing everything taking place before you and suddenly you feel and hear that alarm clock going off! Considering the fact that all the previous Prophecies have come true, what makes people think these new Prophecies will not come true? Like Zachariah and Ezekiel 38-39! Personally speaking, I am horrified and bewildered by their In-Action according to the Scriptures!

The Ten Crowns of the new Rome, seem so far away and obscured. All that is next, is for the Anti-Christ to show himself and the Prophecy of Zachariah 14:12, to take place! And then it will be Ezekiel 38-39! And I keep wondering if there are others seeing the exact same thing, that I do?! All that is going on is Syria right now, is according to that Scripture Passage and it should be of great concern to others!

Zechariah 14:12-13 “And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.”

And then Ezekiel 38-39 is not far behind! Does anyone else feel the Lord is so very close to returning in the Rapture?! HE IS right on the other side of the door…ya’ll!! How much time is left for those of us that Love the Lord and follow HIM?! And what about those that are waiting for that very last moment, before they come to the Lord?!

The world is so deluded right now, that I am surprised if they are able to see their hand right in front of their eyes! And they think, they will be able to know when that last moment will be?! I don’t think so!! We have heard the experts talk about an Economic Collapse, yet I don’t think that will happen until after we are taken home. For those that are waiting, that will be way too late! Am I correct in this?! The “Hand-Writing on the wall”…right?…is right now!

How many in the Pulpits are preaching about our Sin and it’s effects on us?! Does everyone understand, that our Sin will blind us in this respect?! Is that not what the Lord told about the “Great Delusion of God?!”

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

And so now, so many are doing their level best to remove the Holy Word of God and to discredit those of us, that Profess the Lord IS God! Taking into consideration, the Word of God, has been around for better than 4500 years, you would think they would have taken a little time to read it. Thus they would see the Prophecies that have already come true and then take the Prophecies still to come as fact and then change their Lives and Hearts. In my Opinion, this is the effect of the Great Delusion of God! It simply boggles my mind, that so few know this, or are able recognise the events taking place right before thier eyes! Truly ya’ll…that Highway to destruction, is filled with Zombies, shuffling along, blind and dumb to what all is going on! Again…it boggles my mind!!

I must say, now is the “Day of Salvation!” And anyone that wants Heaven needs to drop to their knees and Call upon the Lord and ask for HIS forgiveness of their Sin! I am not able to think of anything more important than that, Jesus Christ is the ONLY Way! If you wait…it will be too late!

2 Corinthians 6:2 “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

Some of my Articles, never seem to bother anyone any more and yet I know in my Heart, Sin is our Biggest and only Problem and it separates us from the Lord God! It is up to each and every one of us to recognise this failure on our part! As an Individual, we must come to Jesus Christ and ask HIM for forgiveness of our Sin! There is NO other way to HIM and Heaven!

Please look around yourselves and see everything that is going on in this world and KNOW that our time here on earth is so very, very, short! So many are writing the exact same things and we need to get everyone in accordance with the Holy Word of God…we need to get ourselves cleansed of our own Sin! There is no other way to say it ya’ll. So many are lost, far too many, and we need to be about our Fathers Business! Our time here is Crazy late ya’ll.

John 3:16 “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.

Is Perspective really…Everything?!

I was spending some time lately, with my Vision. I have had Cataract Surgery on my Left eye, my right eye is doing well…thus far. And I was sitting on our little porch, in our rocking chairs, with my Wife and Drinking our morning Coffee, enjoying the beautiful Texas Hill-Country Weather. The Trees out from us are absolutely Gorgeous, different shades of green and they are full. I couldn’t help myself, but to say, “Thank you Lord!” And then I began to notice so many other things to be thankful to the Lord for, like the cool breeze, clean water for Coffee, My Wife and her Wisdom and Company. And the flood didn’t stop there either and the next thing I knew I was saying “Thank you Lord, Thank you, Thank You”, over and over again. I still have my vision, I Love my Wife, as she still Loves me, my Kids next door are Healthy and happy. I couldn’t find anything to complain about, there never is anything to complain to the Lord about, HIS Love knows no end.

I got to thinking, why had I never known this realization before?! I must guess I was too busy…with Life and all it’s needs. Back in those years, in the Work-Life, I was hard-pressed to be anything other than “Nose to the Grind-Stone” and I was not always happy or Grateful. In those days, I was so blinded by work, our income or School, the hours, because there is always many needs in the Medical Field. Life and Medical needs never cease for the sick. Yet I should have Thanked the Lord, for all of it, how much happier would I have been?

Narrow Perspectives! That was all there was for me, at that time. I spent little time, enjoying simple things like a Breeze, clean Coffee, the Love of my Wife…Like I should have. The Medical Field is very demanding of time, so much knowledge must be available. I worked so many hours in over-time, far too many hours at work, instead of with my Family, missing special occasions, Birthdays, Anniversaries and the Like. And as I look back, it is simply a blur of activity. So now that I am retired, I often ask myself, was it all worth it?

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

How many days were there, when I didn’t get any rest, sometimes 22-24 hours straight at work. Coming home ‘Dragging-butt’ and then sleeping till I had to get up and do it all over again. Wishing desperately for some real Down-Time and Peace. We often had to come home from Vacation a day early, so that we could rest-up before going back to work, imagine that! Having to rest-up from Vacation! We would rush through Vacation, Sleep-in, what was that?! I get tired just thinking back about it all! Just rush, rush and then more rushing! Nowdays, I get to watch my Kids do the exact same things my Wife and I did. My mission is to get them to relax and enjoy everything, instead of rushing all the time. It would appear, this is falling on Deaf ears.

Did you notice in the passage above, “I will give you rest?”

That is what I have now and something I should have sought back then! Our lives are not suppose to be all about rushing, working and all that goes along with that. It is true, “If a man does not work, neither should he eat.”

2 Thessalonians 3:10-11 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat. For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.”

 

Ooops! Someone is going to be offended by that Passage of Scripture. So then the question is, How much should we work. My answer is, if it takes away from Family continually, if it keeps you from the Lord, if it takes up all your thoughts…then find something else to do. Notice I did not say…Quit! If your Work-Life is a drudgery, your life will reflect that. If your Work-Life robs you of Happiness, then your Life will lack happiness and you will need to change. How many love their Jobs and have a full life as well…FEW! There’s that 3 letter word again. Powerful ain’t it?

 

If you recall from many of my Previous articles, this life is about coming to the Lord Jesus Christ. Is there anywhere, that says our work, liked or not, must come first?! It says the Lord comes first, in all things! Wow! What a concept…right?!

 

Work should be a gift! It keeps us focused and moving forward, sharp-minded and moldable. It provides for us an income in our “Golden Years.” (For some of us) During those years we are young and able to do what is needed, but it should be for the Lord in every step…First! I am Thankful to the Lord for my Good Health as I turn 67. Far too many are not in the same boat, as I. Somewhere along the way, we loose focus of what we should be working to accomplish, a Life governed by the Lord.

 

What would our lives be like, if we were to put the Lord first in everything?! Happier, more fulfilled, ya think? There’s that saying “Perspective is everything”, well it is everything, if the Lord is directing it…instead of us! The Bible tells us, the Lord knows everything, so why do we rely on our ideas?! It says the Lord knows our future, so why should we work so hard to make our own lives and futures. Is that not the recipe for disastor? Does the world and how it is running right now, not prove this to us?!

 

How odd is it…we are living in the “End of Days” and the Prophecies of the Word of God, are coming true before our eyes…and we still have not learned?!

 

Prosperity and feeling good about ourselves, seems to be prevailant today. I know of people that worked their Butts off everyday and then had a Heart Attack or a stroke…in their first year of Retirement. Do you think that maybe their perspective for Life was wrong? That’s a logical question…right?! Those that I knew, were not always happy with the direction of their lives, yet they doggedly went about the life they thought was paramount. And yet the Bible, tells us that our lives should be for the Lord God…first and always! What would they be like, had that been the case from the beginning? Would your life be different as well?

 

I hate to speculate anything, I prefer “knowing!” Yet for humans here on earth, that’s impossible! So, we endeavor to live our lives, the best way we know. The Holy Word of God tells us the Lord “knows” the future of every single person. That being the case, wouldn’t it be better to let HIM direct our lives?!

 

2 Corinthians 6:2 “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”

 

Think about that! Your in an Airplane and the Rapture takes place, the people in the cockpit vanish, will you have the presence of mind to accept Salvation through Jesus Christ, before you hit the ground?! I know, I know…truth be known, that will be someones true situation. Life is very short ya’ll!! Perspective is everything…right?! Reread the passage of Scripture above…one more time! Are you living your Life according to the Perfect Will of the Lord…or on your own?!

 

What would your everyday be like, if your perspective was the Lord…first and always?! The Lord wraps everything all up in one tight package, IF you accept HIS invitation. Will the cares of this world matter any more to you? Will your days change for the better or for the worse? Decisions, Decisions, Decisions…right?! You want happiness and Peace…right? You purchase Insurance for when things go badly right? What about your Eternal Insurance?!

 

I don’t know about you, but since I have been saved, I am able to breath a whole lot better, sleep more soundly. Life is brighter, my view clearer, the colors more vibrant amd all I can say is “Thank You Lord” over and over again, because HIS Loves knows no bounds! Does the Lord make us happier in Life? I know HE has in mine! Some say, that is not what HE wants for us, their wrong and my Life proves it! My Perspective…ya’ll!

 

John 3:16 “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.

Too Serious to laugh about it!

John15:5 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”

I know, I have stated this From the Bible) many times before and yet…it still rings true! And this is about absolutely everything…Please note here…Everything! The Lord God IS the Creator! We humans simply use what HE provided for us. I wish that was the end of it! It ain’t!

We humans have such delicate egos, that are hurt much too easily. We LIKE to think we are so very smart, so intelligent, so ingenious and forward thinking. The sad truth is this, we are given just so much of anything and still it is more than enough to get us into trouble. Now I know, this is going to anger some people and so it is with so many other Truths, like the Holy Word of God, the Bible. Yet this is like everything else we deal with on a daily basis, sometimes the Truth hurts. But…guess what? It’s a choice we make!

In the beginning, with Adam and Eve, we did not wear clothes or shoes. The Lord made things that would hurt our bodies…AFTER…they Sinned in the Garden of Eden and were cast out. So here we are today, with all our Fashions, with all our personal Prejudicies. And we then scoff at others that do not have what we have…opinions are like belly-buttons…everyone has one…right?! Yet we ultimate know, we are all the same! Our delicate little egos want to always be better than someone else, never the same and Horrors be known, never beneath someone else, am I correct?

Do you realize, that in all the time than man has been on earth, man has never CREATED anything? Only God is capable of that! Come on ya’ll…everyone knows that to “Carbon Date” anything, is guess work at best. Some guy was sitting around and thinking to himself, that the world had to take millions of years to ‘evolve’. Therefore, HE searchs for the most commom element on earth and called it Carbon and he believed that everything on earth began with carbon. Then looking at the earth, he put a date into a computer to that effect…by the millions of years. He looked around himself and a few others began to agree with him, the question is, was he correct? What do you think?

Lets back up for a moment. “Just enough information to get ourselves in Trouble.” There it is, Carbon dating! Of course everyone has the ‘Choice’ to believe some ‘guy’, or to believe the Word of God…right? Guess which one most people are willing to believe? “Well…that ‘guy’ is really smart and all, ya know.” Someone says. “Heyyy..he’s right! I went to school!” The ‘guy’ re-iterates. “Now I am better than anyone else and you need to pay me a lot of money!” Next thing you know, others want to be his Friend and hopefully get a job like his and make big bucks. “We all, will sit around and speculate big questions (We look smart) and we can teach others and make even more money. Stop and think of it, we’ll be famous!” “Of course we need to go about everyday, as if we have really important and have big things that we are pondering, you know, we must look busy and important!”

And then someone points out, the Bible! “Oh that’s a bunch of malarkey!” Of course the ‘Guy’s’ Friends are supporting him! So now you have it all, here we are, so smart and smug about it. The question is, where did that intelligence truly come from? The Lord God…that’s where! The ‘Guys’ chose to mislead everyone! Except…if you ask them! right?

Again, our sweet and delicate egos won’t allow us to admit to the Truth, that my Friends would destroy us! Right? One must give credit, where credit is due! If the ‘Guys’ actually gave the Lord God the credit, where it really belongs, the ‘Guys’ would then be Liars.

You see, I am not intelligent! I simply read the Holy Word of God…in my Life…and I KNOW the Truth! You see, in all of my Family, I am the only one with a Baccalaureate Degree. That means the Lord God gave me enough smarts to learn from others and make good grades…that’s it! I was able to perform in a particular job, nothing more and nothing less. Yet I am like everyone else on earth…I am a human. I need Jesus Christ…I need to be saved from my own Sin…by HIS Blood from the Cross on Calvary. THAT my Friends is all I need to know! That will provide for me, a Home in Heaven and not in Hell.

For lack of a better way to say it…There truly is nothing else…for any of us, than Jesus Christ! Again, give credit where credit is due…and that belongs solely to Jesus Christ! As the verse says above, “Without Jesus Christ…you and I can’t do anything!” Whom do you think provides the next Heart-beat or the next Breath of air?! The lack of either means we die! The end of little ol’ me! The reason humans are on earth in the first place, is to follow Jesus Christ! That’s it…that’s all there is! Everything else and I mean everything else…stays right here on earth!

John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

 

Yes, I know, I use these verses over and over again. The question is WHY? Do you ever wonder how many people go through their entire lives and never once…give these verses a single thought?! The Bible tells us that the answer is…Far Too Many…The Majority of Humans! “Well…I am so busy…I’ll think about some other time.” Really?! So…what if your in an auto accident…before…you think about it?! Why should the Lord God give you more time here on earth, when you won’t give HIM a single thought, for one small moment? Give me a good reason the Lord God, should save you to Heaven??

 

Those two verses are some really serious stuff to consider! Failure to consider them and you will definitley find yourself In Hell and then the Lake of Fire for all of Eternity! That is total destruction!

 

Here’s another verse of the like; Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

 

The Lord is telling you, that HE Loves you! HE wants to make your life easy and wonderful, HE wants to give you life for Eternity, how is that a bad thing?! How does anyone in their right mind, turn their back on that?! Adam and Eve ate of the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. therefore, you know what is right and what is wrong. Why would anyone choose to do wrong or evil things?! Does this make sense to you?!

 

Psalms 90:10 “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; (60 + 10 years) and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years (80), yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

 

Did you get that?! 70 years! Now compare that to Eternity! Or better yet, the distance from the East to the West! That 70-80 years is wayyyyy too short…Life is wayyyy too short! Yet is is more than enough time, to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior…and be assured of a Home in Heaven with HIM! I don’t know about you, but that seems pretty basic to me and one very easy choice to make!

 

John 3:16 “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.

It’s simple and concise, always has been!

As I remembered in my last article, the days in my child years of the “Tent Revivals”. I love describing the event, the Hot and Sweltering conditions, the Field next to the tent, rolling with heat-waves. Yet every time I think back to those times, I hear ;” You won’t get to Heaven with unforgiven Sin in your Life!” And there would be a pounding on the Pulpit, as the Pastor yelled this. “God’s Holy Word wants us to understand, that the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, from HIS Cross on Calvary…is to cover our Sin…BUT…you must ask for it!!” And there would be another pounding on the Pulpit…loud enough to make everyone jump. “You MUST…humble yourself before the Lord God…Get on your knees…and reverently ask Jesus to SAVE YOU!! Did you hear that?!?! For Jesus to SAVE YOU…from your Sin…to cover your Sin with HIS Blood!!” And the podium would rock and sound off! “If you don’t ask for it…you will go to Hell and later the Lake of Fire! I do NOT say this, the Bible…God’s Holy Word to you and I…says this!!” And I would have sworn the tent, itself, would jump!

Can you imagine a Tent Revival, like in those times, happening now days?! I am sure there would be protests and maybe a Bomb Threat ta boot! Feelings would be hurt, because everyone was yelled at, by the Pastor. Boo hoo!! “A Revival”, what a concept that is and especially in these days and times! I know this, I would be there, hot or not!

Yet I must say this, there would be NO HOLY FEELINGS in any Tent Revival. “I just feel so Holy every time I walk in the church!” There would not be a sermon on “Prosperity”! The seats would be hard and uncomfortable, the heat sweltering! And the “Answer to Salvation would ring out!”

Revelations 2:5-7 “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent. But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”

 

This verse strikes me to the Heart! In other words, do as the Holy Word of God says, come to Jesus, ask HIM to save you and cover your Sin with HIS Blood! There is NO other way to Heaven! I am saying this just as those Tent Revival Pastors said it back then, because there truly is NO other way!

 

It does not matter how bad a Sinner you are, Jesus says simply…”Come unto me!” The only Sin that is not covered, is the Sin of “Rejecting Jesus Christ!” That my Friends is the Fulcrum, the Tipping Point, between you and Jesus Christ for HIS Salvation for Eternity. If only everyone would read this and Understand it! Everything that you could ever want or desire, every comfort, every Blessing, every Good thing…is found in Jesus Christ…and only HIM! And it will last for Eternity! What else is there?!

 

I don’t ncare if you are a murderer, a thief, whatever…Jesus Christ…IS your answer! All you must do is to Ask for it…with all your Heart! No Pomp…No other Process…no nothing else…a simple decision in your Heart is all it ever takes. This is why you are here on earth…to become a child of the Most High God! To go to Heaven…to be with Jesus Christ…who IS God! It’s that simple ya’ll…!!

 

I can vividly hear the Pastor yelling this from the Pulpit…everyones eyes were wide open…Hearts were beginning to understand…nothing else mattered at the moment! As the pastor would mop his brow, a piano would begin to play and then there was the “Call to the Alter” of Jesus Christ. People would wobbly rise to their feet and they would walk forward to the Alter, lives being saved to Jesus Christ! You could feel the Moment in your Heart, I know I did. The pastor would lay his hand on each Head and he would ask “Do you want Jesus Christ in your Heart and Life?! PRAISE THE LORD!” Tears would be streaming from thier eyes! Chests heaving and shaking, Hands clasped together! “Thank you Lord!” on every lip. No “Feeling Good about yourself”, no “Prosperity gospel”, was heard, but you could feel the wieght being lifted from your Heart…finally!

 

No more fear… about Life…or even Death for that matter…they are one and the same in this life on earth! Yet, you knew where you would be in Eternity, with the Lord God! That my Friends, IS Enough!

 

In my Heart, my Friends, we NEED a Revival for Jesus Christ! We need to Come to HIM, as HE asks us to and give HIM our Hearts and Lives! More today…than it ever was before! Or do you not watch everything going on around you in this life?! Do you want your children to grow and live, then they need Jesus Christ in their every moment! How would your Life Prosper? Money does not bring Prosperity….never has and never will. How about everyday Harmony and a sense of Peace? How about no more worries?! Sounds Great…does it not? Your answer is above and it comes from the Holy Word of God!

 

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

 

Do you know of anything else that will offer the same?! I know I do not! Do I still have troubles in my Life? Absolutely, I do! The difference is, no matter what happens to me, the Lord holds me in HIS capable Hands…I KNOW where I am headed!

 

I am here to give Witness of the Love of Jesus Christ…for me…for others as well! Will I be spared Death…it doesn’t matter any more! To be Born on this earth is to know, one day I will die! Yet I know where I will spend Eternity…In Heaven with my Lord and Savior! You know, that is enough for me!

 

We all think with our Earthly senses, comfort, Pain, Hardship, even Death…that is our own downfall. We must remember, “We are the Fallen Species!” We need Jesus Christ! We need to be Saved! This life here on Earth…is the FIRST stepping Stone on our trip into Eternity! What comes next, is what truly matters! Which do you want…Heaven with Love, Safety, comfort, harmony, Peace…forever?! Or do you want Hell and the Lake of Fire…with Pain, suffering, agony, NO HOPE! My Friends…it is your choice! That choice is the entire reason you are here on earth to begin with!

 

Your only choice here is to go to Heaven or to Hell…that’s it! Everything else that happens here is not within your control…never was and never will be! The Holy Word of God has every answer, to every question, you could ever think of! And to think it has been around for better than 4500 years!

 

John 3:16 “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.
