We are so very near the end of our Father’s patience…..a sea of humanity, many taking no note of the hour in which we live, milling about with vague knowledge of the Ark, but will not approach Him, much less find the Door Way. Relatively soon, God will say, “It is finished. Let the righteous go on doing righteous, and wicked go on doing wicked.”
After that Edict is Proclaimed, the Door is sealed.
There are many today who call themselves Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of satan. Many who call themselves Christians and are not, but follow the lusts of their own fickle, treacherous, hearts. Hypocrites all!….we are at times.
The Way to Life is simple enough for a Child to grasp it with both hands and hold on tight! The whole of God’s Law hangs upon two simple, yet critically important principles…
‘Love your Father with every fiber of your being, and love your neighbor as yourself.’
What is simple and pure is misunderstood and mistrusted by so many in our jaded world today. Christ calls for us to “be perfect, even as He is perfect”. Yet many see such a concept as “idealistic”, “impossible”, and so distant as to be unobtainable. Pure, unadulterated love, is not just a sentiment to be achieved momentarily and sporadically throughout one’s life. It is The Cornerstone, the Bedrock of All LIFE. God IS LOVE. And only a society, a Kingdom, borne of Him…..and Living in Him and for one another, can carry on! LOVE is the only thing that lasts. Hate, distrust, derision, contempt, self loathing, covetousness, etc…etc….ALL breed disruption and chaos, such that it is no wonder at all why ALL of man’s empires from the beginning on through the present have fallen.
One has only to exercise one’s will power in order to ascertain what is Truth. Study the Teachings of Christ and see if what He has said has not come to pass, is happening now, and is likely to come to fruition directly ahead. I have witnessed some otherwise brilliant minds, deny God and His creation over the most trivial of baseless reasonings. I have personally witnessed individuals go from cheerful, generous, caring, selfless individuals, to seekers of pleasure, lovers of their own selves, not open to any agreements, contentious, lovers of money, etc. And I have also seen some of the most contemptible individuals changed by God in Christ.
We are living in that season of which Christ warned would come. A GREAT falling away, many giving up the faith, saying, “My Master is taking too long in returning”. Ever watch a marathon? Ever see the finish line on the news? Those crossing first with arms raised above their heads as if they could do it all again after a quick bathroom break? Ever see those being assisted across the finish line dead last? Those individuals who fall down so close to the finish line that they simply cannot accept failure? I’ve seen people stumble, fall, get back up and continue falling…..seen them crawl on hands and knees, even roll themselves to CROSS THAT LINE.
For those of you with Faith, more will be given you. Don’t sit down now, in sight of the finishing line, with head hanging between your knees in sorrow, self pity, and utter defeat! Call upon your Father Who is in heaven and receive “Help with a Little Help”. After all, He said, “You have not because you ask not, therefore KEEP ON ASKING…”
DGD, friends. Ding God DAILY. He wants to hear from you, and keep hearing. He is not like a tired earthly parent, tormented by a child’s incessant pleas for the latest electronic gaming gizmo. He not only has amazing answers in store for those who show their determination by sincere, continuous, requests for His assistance….
He would LOVE to share them with you, if you take the time not only to talk, but to patiently, attentively, expectantly, LISTEN.
He saved Kirk Martin and countless others in similar situations….
Is there time enough for one to meaningfully reverse course from a debauched life? Christ told the thief being crucified next to Him, upon being asked if Christ would allow Him into this Kingdom of His….”Truly I tell you, this day you will be with me in paradise”. Was there time enough for him? Sound too good to be true? Christ says that on the day of Judgment, many will say to Him, ‘Lord, lord, did we not do all these works in your name? And He will say to them, depart from me you workers of LAWLESSNESS, I do not know you.’ He also says that our Father will forgive all manner of earthly sins, save one. Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
Will there be an accounting for the way you have lived?
What does the above account and myriad others like it, say to you?
Blessings all, in Yeshua, Jesus Christ, and may He find you working what is good TOWARD ALL upon His return
