(Philosophy/Poem) Can We Understand God’s Wisdom

Can We Understand God’s Wisdom

 

What is wisdom to the likes of a man

Is wisdom judgement, is judgement justice

If you cannot understand, is knowledge possible

For without knowledge can ones wisdom be valid

Can the simple or wise understand the secrets of God

 

A good father teaches his child to obey their mother’s instructions

An obedient child is a crown of glory to both parents and too theirs

Yet the child who refused instruction brings the family only shame

An open-pit awaits for those who are stiff-necked, blind and simple

The foolish and the simple refuse the clarity of the Light when given

The Lord has offered His children understanding if they will choose it

 

The Spirit of the Lord is poured out to all who will obey His instruction

Yet the ignorant and the cold-hearted think themselves to wise to accept it

When calamity and woes come down upon us like a hurricane from Hades

Do we fall down upon our knees or shake our fist at God and the Heavens

Should a person risk their life to safe the ones who always refused to listen

Do we die because we refused to except instruction to understand, God’s wisdom

Face Down In The Gutter

Face Down In The Gutter

Down in the gutter a human falls on their face

Face down in the sewer, is this where we end our life’s race

So many years of struggle to keep up another’s set space

With a world full of Jones’ a person is taught we must race

Not knowing or seeing we were created in God’s given grace

 

From the womb were taught he who dies with the most toys

Gains themselves some veiled vision of some mystical first place

Like a rat in a maze the Devil has put the humans in their place

Face down in the sewage on our back we must roll and clean off our face

Look upward toward Heaven and you will see the Lord’s stars all aglow

Angels are praying for us too get up on our feet and God’s grace we shall find

 

 

Face down in the gutter one who’s made in God’s likeness should not ever be

Dear friend In the likeness of God every one of us are made, even you and me

In the gutters of this world not even a Bush, a Trump or a Clinton should be

Bloodline’s like they, so tainted with their ego’s and greed still matter to God

My friend, I hope you can now see that you matter to God, and you matter to me

(Poem) My Old Kentucky Run

My Old Kentucky Run

 

Early this morning in these old Kentucky hills

I did leave my cabin in search of a meal

Looking for a squirrel, rabbit, or pheasant my belly to fill

Three extra shells for my 20 gauge strapped to my side

I popped up over a hill and to my surprise

Eye ball to belly with a bear twice my size

 

 

Off and a running with nowhere to hide

Tooth pick legs a pumping, corn liquor belly swaying side to side

Huffing and puffing, I just can’t out run this four-legged fiend

Lord I know this prayer is quite a bit to late

But Lord please give me faster feet or a much bigger gun

With fangs in my backside, and no shine to kill the pain

Now sauteed and seasoned on this bad boys plate

Only hope now is that Heaven is the place I awake

 

 

 

The Book Of Revelation, Chapter #9

The Book Of Revelation, Chapter #9

 

As we begin the 9th chapter of Revelation let us remember the last verse of Chapter #8 and it’s warning to us humans. “And I beheld and heard an Angel flying in the midst of Heaven, saying with a loud voice, woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the Earth by reason of the other voices of the Trumpet of the 3 Angels, which are yet to sound.” As we read this 9th chapter where the 5th and 6th Trumpets are blown all true Christians should be on our knees in worship and in thanks to our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) that we will have been Raptured before these events. These woes that the Apostle John writes about covers the deepest and the most painful events of the Great Tribulation Period. These two Trumpets will be during the last 3 1/2 years of the 7 years of the Great Tribulation Period. This is the Seventh Week of the Prophesy of the Prophet Daniel. This will be the darkest days in the human history of time. (Please read Daniel 9: 24).

 

Let us now study the events of the 5th and 6th Trumpets within this 21 verses of this chapter. Hopefully for all those who prayerfully read these verses the Holy Spirit of God will open many eyes to its understanding. 1.) “And a Fifth Angel sounded and I saw a Star fall from Heaven unto the Earth: And unto Him was given the Key of the Bottomless Pit.” “And He opened the Bottomless Pit, as the smoke of a large furnace; and the Sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the Pit.” “And there came out of the smoke Locusts upon the Earth: and unto them was given power, as the Scorpions of the Earth have power.” “And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the Earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree; but to only hurt those men which do not have the Seal of God in their foreheads.” “And it was given to the Locust that they should not kill the men, but that the men should be tormented by their stings for 5 months. And their torment would be like unto the torment of a Scorpion when he strikes a man.” “In those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. They shall desire to die but death shall flee from them.” “The shapes of the Locusts were like unto horses prepared for battle. And on their heads were Crowns like unto gold and their faces were as the faces of men.” “They had hair like unto the hair of women and their teeth were as the teeth of Lions.” “And they had breastplates as it were the breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of Chariots of horses running in battle.” “They had tails like unto Scorpions and there were stings in their tails and their power was to hurt men for 5 months.” “They have a King over them, which is the Angel of the Bottomless Pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon. But in the Greek tongue His name is Apollyon (which means, a destroyer).

 

“One woe is past, but behold, there comes 2 more woes hereafter.” 13.) “And the 6th Angel sounded and I heard a voice from the 4 Horns of the Golden Alter which is before God.” “Saying to the 6th Angel which had the Trumpet, loose the 4 Angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.” “And the 4 Angels were freed which were prepared for an hour and a day and a month and a year for they were to slay 1/3 of all mankind.” “And the number of the Army of the Horsemen were two hundred thousand thousands: and I heard the number of them.” “And thus I saw the Horses in the vision and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire and of Jacinth and brimstone: and the heads of the Horses were as the heads of Lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.” “By these there was 1/3 of all men killed, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone which came out of their mouths.” “For their power was in their mouth’s and in their tails: for their tails were like unto Serpents and they had heads and with them they do hurt men.” “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the works of their hands. In that they should not worship Devils or idols of gold and silver and brass and stone and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.” 21.) “Neither did they repent of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

 

The meaning of “the Star” in verse one is very simple, without a doubt this is Satan. A physical Star can ‘do’ nothing. This verse makes it plain that ‘this Star’ has a “Being” to Him. If you would, please refer to the Apostle John’s writing in the Book of 2 Corinthians 11: 14, or the Gospel of Luke in 10: 18. They will give you further understanding to the fact that this “Star” is the Devil Himself. If you would, please also checkout the Old Testament Prophet Isiah when he wrote what is found in chapter 14 verse 12. “How art thou fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, Son of the morning! How are thou cut down to the ground, which has weakened the nations!”

 

In verse #2, the Pit of which the Devi opened up is Hell. In verse 3 these “Locusts” are like unto something that the face of the Earth has never seen. These Locusts will do the exact opposite of the Locusts that we humans are used to seeing throughout our history. These Locusts will not harm/eat any of the plants and trees but they will bring great harm and pain to the human race where the Locusts that we are used to experiencing do no such a thing. If you are wondering about the meaning of verse #4 please reference the first Book of the Bible, Genesis in chapter 4 verse 15. This passage may give you a little more insight. When we reach verse 13 we come to the 6th Trumpet. The 6th Angel blows His Trumpet then he is commanded by Jesus (Yeshua) to let loose the 4 evil Angels who were imprisoned in the river Euphrates. Jesus has now removed the 7th Seal which led to  the Trumpets which will lead into the 7 Personalities, then the 7 Bowls of wrath. So many of mankind’s sins have generated from this area of the world which is modern day Iraq that the ground is soaked in innocent peoples blood. By the way, in modern day Iraq is where the Tower of Babel is also located and this area that leads to the final attempt to destroy the Nation of Israel through Masada which will lead to Armageddon, the final battle.

 

Friends, in this time of the Great Tribulation 1/3 of all of mankind will be killed. On the planet today there are over 7 billion people so we are talking about approximately 2 and 1/2 billion deaths from this one event. Folks, these are times of many horrors like the Earth has never seen before. Though previous Trumpets we had already seen 1/4 of the worlds population dying and now 1/3 more. If you add 1/4 plus 1/3 that equals 7/12 or more that half of the worlds population, probably somewhere close to 4 billion people dying. Folks, a true Hell on Earth awaits for the people who reject their own Savior Jesus Christ. In verses 20 & 21 we are told that the rest of the human race that survives these horrors will still refuse to repent to God for their sins. How sad of a time this Great Tribulation period will be, I wish it upon no one and there is no reason for anyone to have to experience this horror. We are all given an out, a pass, to this time period. We can miss it simply by living a life of love for each other and trying our best to follow after our Savior Jesus Christ in our daily lives. Faith and love, or a living Hell, it seems like a simple choice yet so many refuse God’s love, so sad.

 

Revelation Chapter #8…The Seventh Seal

Chapter #8…The Seventh Seal

 

As we begin the 8th chapter of Revelation our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) is opening the Seventh of the Seven Seals of the ‘Sealed Book’. When the Seal is opened we are introduced to the Seven Angels with the Seven Trumpets. On a side note, have you noticed that the #7 is quite prevalent within the Book of Revelation just as it is throughout the Scriptures? The pattern the Apostle John used with the Seven Seals he also used throughout this Book. What I mean by this is that after the first set of 7 is followed by 3 more sets of 7. Also, after the first 6 events there is a break in the events.  Then the 7th event leads into the next event of 7. In Johns writing of these events which are yet to happen he is showing us that all of these events are hooked together. These are not unrelated events as one does lead straight into that which is to follow.

 

Folks, we are all Children of God, everyone of us, but are we faithful caring Children or have we chosen to be no more than wild beasts? If we are faithful Children of God we need not fear these events that are about to take place. That is, are we a believer in and a doer of the Will of our Lord and our Father! Friends, if we are, then we will not be on this planet when these events happen here, the reason is that we will have already been Raptured. But folks, we all must be “doers” of God’s Will, not just “hearers” only. Think about it for a moment, how can we honestly say we love our family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers yet stand idly by and let them suffer through these events?

 

In John’s writings here in this Book we see the 7 Seals, the 7 Trumpets, the 7 Angels and the 7 Bowls of wrath that are to be poured out upon a wicked Earth. In the 7 Trumpets that we read about in this chapter you will see plainly that it is God whom is directing these events. In the first verse of this chapter we are told what takes place as the 7th Seal is opened. It reads that when He (Jesus) opened the 7th Seal there was silence in Heaven for about half of an hour. Friends, this is the proverbial calm before the storm. This 8th chapter is only 13 verses in length so let us now go through them and pray the The Holy Spirit will show us all the meaning of them.

 

1.) “And I saw the 7 Angels which stood before God and to them were given 7 Trumpets.” “And another Angel came and stood at the Alter, having a Golden Censer and there was given unto Him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the Saints upon the Golden Alter which was before the Throne.” “And the smoke of the incense which was presented with the prayers of the Saints ascended up before God out of the Angels hand.” “And the Angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the Alter and cast it onto the Earth and there were voices and thundering and lightning and an earthquake.” “And the 7 Angels with the 7 Trumpets prepared themselves to sound their Trumpets.”

 

“The first Angel blew His Trumpet and there came hail and fire mingled with blood and they were cast upon the Earth and 1/3 of the trees were burnt up and all green grass was burnt up.” “Then the 2nd Angel blew His Trumpet and there was as a great mountain burning with fire and it was cast into the Sea and a 1/3 part of the Sea became blood.” “And a 1/3 of the creatures which were in the Sea that had life died and 1/3 of the ships were destroyed.” “And a 3rd Angel sounded His Trumpet and there fell a great Star from Heaven, burning as if it were a torch and it fell upon 1/3 of the rivers and upon the fountains of waters.” “And the name of the Star is called Wormwood and many men died from drinking the waters because they were made bitter.” “Then the 4th Angel sounded His Trumpet and 1/3 of the Sun was smitten and also 1/3 of the Moon and 1/3 of the Stars; so as 1/3 part of them was darkened and the day shone not for 1/3rd part of it and the night likewise.” “Then I beheld and heard an Angel flying through the midst of Heaven, saying with a loud voice, woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the Earth for reason of the other voices of the Trumpet of the three Angels, which are yet to sound.”

 

These thing that the Apostle John has written here are going to be horrible events to have happen to the people who remain upon the Earth during the Tribulation period. The ideal situation would be if at the Rapture that everyone on Earth was Raptured. This would leave Satan and His Angels/Demons “home alone” here on the Earth during these times. There is no one upon the Earth that I dislike enough that I would want them to have to live through these events. Just as there is no one on the planet whom I wish to “go to Hell”, not even the person who killed my Mom in a car accident back in August of 2000. We as Christians must not be filled with hate, nor are we to be judges of others. Remember, it is okay and natural to hate evil acts but not to hate the sinner there of. This is because we all sin, everyone of us and we shall be judged by what degree we judge. Jesus (Yeshua) our Lord is the one True Judge and it is He will will Judge all of us. We all have an obligation to our Lord Jesus and to all of our loved ones and friends to not sit on our God given talents. We are all obligated to spread the Word of God’s love so that as few people as possible will have to be here on Earth during this Great Tribulation Period!

 

Please remember the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 15: 51-52. “Behold, I show you a mystery; we shall not all sleep (die), but we shall be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling (blink) of an eye, at the last Trumpet: for the Trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed.” I am going to close this letter to you this evening with one more passage of Scripture from the Apostle Paul that I would like for you to think about, this passage is found in 1 Thessalonians 4: 16. It reads “For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel and with the Trumpet of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first.” Friends, we all have a decision to make and like it of not we all do make that decision many times everyday. It is simply, who do we follow, who do we serve. There are only two choices, we either follow and obey God or we are following and serving the Devil. There is no such thing as a third choice here nor some gray area that we think we can slide into. All humans will spend their eternity somewhere and that somewhere does depend of how we choose to spend this life we are in right now. We will spend our eternity either in Paradise with Christ or we will spend it in Hell’s fire with the Devil. Folks, friends, please choose wisely.

(Philosophy Poem) Stairway To Heaven And To Hell

Stairway To Heaven And To Hell

 

Were we ever really born, from where did we come

Where is it that we truly began, or have we yet begun

The body we know, it is but flesh and bone and blood

But, what are we really, is this shell all that we are

Can the human mind possibly hold our beginnings

 

The Seed and the Egg, science has shown, becomes one

Yet when does the mind start and our memories begin

Is A Soul assigned to us like a Professor to an assignment

Did our Soul, before us have its own life and conscience

Does our Soul remember a life before we ever began

 

Was our Soul enjoying the presence of God The Father before us

Does our Soul return again from where it came as our time ends

The body lays in rest until the sounding of Christ’s Holy Trumpet

While we sleep does the Soul go to rest behind God’s Pearly Gates

Or, does It, do we, slide past Hades straight into the core of Hell’s Pit

We reside on the Middle Plain, which way we go, is how we live it

(POEM) I’ve Lost My Wings

I’ve Lost My Wings

 

I woke up this morning and I feel so strange

I see this world that I simply do not know

Tiny is size with color on this mortal skin

My words won’t come forth as if I’ve never been

My Soul I know speaks but my words won’t bend

 

A little Man this society says that I now am

My eyes see but what I see I cannot speak

Defiled by humans taking advantage of little me

It seems that I’ve fallen down to this dirt below

With age the light source just gets further away

 

I walk in the sand, only in memory can I fly

Wings that once were now nowhere I find

Did I ever really have them in memory of time

Lights of Heaven I remember as I pray to Thee

A round trip to Heaven or to the Fire I now see

 

Theology Poem: Angels Among Us

Angels Among Us

 

Is there really such a thing as good and bad Angels

Are there really Spiritual Beings walking Among us

Could there be ones Truly Holy and Evil and Immortal

The Scriptures say there are many whom are truly wise

When a man is facing the power of an Angel, who are we

 

G-d’s elect are meek, invisible, powerful and obedient

Sometimes incarnate in human form, concerned for us

Job says that even some Angels are less than perfect

Whether living in a Mansion or Cardboard box, we’re dust

Some humans are like pigs in that live and die without wisdom

 

Light is The Guide that directs and delivers the lonely and lost to life

Those without The Light live in a curse of pestilence, doubts and death

Angels announced the Birth of Christ and escorted Him back to Heaven

Through foolish pride many Angels fought against G-d, and they died

When we entertain an Angel do you ever wonder what they think of us

 

 

Understanding Revelation Chapters 16,17 & 18 (Armageddon, Babylon And The Harlot)

Understanding Revelation Chapters 16,17 & 18 (Armageddon, Babylon And The Harlot)

Like all things that are writings about Scriptural Truths there will be people who are offended and upset about what is written. I am sure that this article today will be one of those events, but I am not here to please humans, I am here to help them to see and to understand. In this article today it will seem to many that I am picking on the Catholic Church, that is not my intention, truth is my intention. Many people do not read the Book of Revelation because they say that they just don’t understand it because the parables are beyond their understanding, unfortunately most of the Christian Religions also fall into this abyss. Unfortunately many Churches do not teach Revelation because what is written does not jive with their Church Doctrine. I am going to start this article at Revelation chapter 16, verse 14. When the end times of this system of things that we all live in today there are seven Vials in Heaven that will be poured upon the Earth by Angels of God. Where I am beginning is after the Sixth Vial has been poured. This is a time when all the Nations of the Earth gather their Armies together to fight against God/Jesus and His Angels at the Second Advent of Christ. This is when the world will see that they have been deceived by the three ‘would be’ Gods who are actually three Devils. The sad part is that these people will be the ones who have the Mark of the Beast/Devil (your government given number) in their foreheads or implanted in their forearm/wrist and it will be too late for them.

 

16:14 “For they are the Spirits of Devils working miracles who go forth to the Kings of the Earth and to the whole world to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.” 16:16 “And He (the Devil) gathered them together to a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” 16:17 “And the seventh Angel poured out his vial into the air: and there came a great voice out of the Temple of Heaven, from the Throne, saying, It is done.” 18 “And there was thunder and voices and lightning; and there was a great earthquake such as has not been since men have been upon the Earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.” 19″And the great city (Jerusalem) was divided into three parts (Jewish, Islamic, Christian), and the cities of the Nations fell: and great Babylon (Rome/Vatican) came into remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.” 20 “And every island fled away (disappeared) and the mountains were not found (flattened).” 21 “And there fell upon men a great hail out of Heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent (7.5 lbs): and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”

 

For the purpose of not making this article into a book itself I am going to hit the ‘high points’ of chapters 17 and 18. These high points are designed to help you understand these two chapters if you decide to read them for yourself which I sincerely hope you will.

 

In 17; it speaks of the ‘Great Whore’ that sits upon many waters: with whom the Kings of the Earth have committed fornication and the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with the wine of Her fornication. (This Great Whore is the Catholic Church/the Vatican). You see when Christ returns He is coming for ‘His Bride, The Church’. The Catholic Church throughout its history has called itself ‘The Church’ and at one time it was but it started committing adultery with the kingdoms of the Earth, it did not keep itself clean/pure. The reach of the ‘spoiled Bride’ reaches to all the continents and all its Kingdoms. ‘The Church’ is not pure, it has committed mass adultery with the Kingdoms of the world of which Satan rules thus they have been in league with evil for at least 1600-1700 years, thus the Catholic Church is ‘the Great Whore’ spoken of here in Revelation. Starting in verse 3 the Apostle John speaks of the Woman (the Catholic Church/ the Vatican) sitting upon a scarlet colored Beast (Devil). “And upon her forehead was a name written, “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” “And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the Saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus:”

 

Chapter 18 starting with verse 2 the Apostle John speaks of another Angel that came down from Heaven who spoke with a mighty voice saying “Babylon the great is fallen and has become the habitation of Devils and the dwelling place of every foul Spirit,” 3: “For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of Her fornication, and the Kings of the Earth have committed fornication with Her and the merchants of the Earth are become rich through the power of Her delicacies.” 8: “Therefore shall Her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning and famine; and She shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges Her.”

 

I will end this article today with this last little bit from the last few verses of chapter 18 starting with verse 20. “Rejoice over Her, thou Heaven, and ye Holy Apostles and Prophets (preachers); for God has avenged you on Her.” “And a mighty Angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, This with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” 23: “…; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.” Then lastly verse 24: “And in Her was found the blood of Prophets, and of Saints, and of all that were slain upon the Earth.”

I hope that this article helped to clarify a few things for you. I am not trying to be hateful or mean toward anyone, I am only trying to be totally truthful with you. My hope is that through this article some of you will take the time to read these passages and hopefully understand them a little more. I pray that God will bless each and every one of you, good night.

Personal Human Safety: Is There Such A Thing Here On Earth

Personal Human Safety: Is There Such A Thing Here On Earth

 

Safety is there really such a thing here in this world? I guess that it is true that safety just like beauty can be just in the eye of the beholder. Then again is the term safe actually dependent on the subject matter? There is the concept of physical safety, or safety for your financial wealth whether in your cash, stocks, or bonds. But tonight I am speaking mainly about the physical safety of yourself and your loved ones. For many thousands of years now millions of human beings have used different types of drugs to escape their physical reality. Sometimes people use these drugs whether God-given ones such as in plants and herbs or ones that are man-made in laboratory’s. So often people seek an inner peace or euphoria so that they can escape the living hell they face each day here on Earth. The hellish conditions we see on Earth are all man-made for the only true hell we have to fear is the one that separates us from God Himself after our deaths. Life without putting our Creator first is a life that we all should fear every second we breath for no ones next breath is guaranteed. Fear, if we are ignorant enough to not fear Hell itself then we are truly both ignorant and stupid. Earth, the place where the Devil and his tens of thousands of dark Angels roam freely is not a place where physical safety for any human exists.

 

Within the first few verses of the 5th chapter of the book of Job in the Bible you read about one of Job’s friends named Eliphaz who was trying to be wise in his speech about the torments Job was going through. Eliphaz spoke to Job in this manner when he said “for wrath kills the foolish man and envy slays the silly one. I have seen the foolish take root and I cursed his habitation. His foolish children are far from being safe and they are crushed in the gate and there is none to deliver them. For man is born unto trouble, as the flames fly upward (from Hell)”.

 

In the fourth chapter of the Book of Psalms Israel’s King David wrote, ” But know that the Lord has set apart him that is Godly for Himself: The Lord will hear when I call unto Him. Stand in awe and sin not: Commune with God in your heart upon your bed and be still. I will lay me down in peace and sleep: for you O Lord and you alone make me dwell in safety. Offer your sacrifices of righteousness and put your trust in the Lord.” The Apostle Paul when he was writing his letter to the Church in the third chapter of the Book of Philippians he wrote; ” My brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write these same things to you is not grievous to me, but for you it is safe. Beware of dogs, beware of workers of evil, beware of the mutilations. Yes doubtless I count all things for loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus our Lord for whom I have suffered the loss of all my Earthly things, and do count them as dung, that I may win Christ and be found in Him. Not having my own righteousness, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.”

 

Here in this twenty-first century A.D. it would be so nice if we in our own lives could truly live in physical safety. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if no one ever did any harm to themselves or to anyone else? What if there was no such thing as hatred, jealousy, ego’s or murder? We all know in our hearts and minds that this is not the current situation that we all live in today. Friends as long as the Devil, his Angels, and those ignorant enough to follow him roam the surface of the Earth, no one is safe, everyone is under attack, even if we are unaware of it.

 

Throughout the Scriptures we are told many times to walk our lives in meekness and humility. God tells us to put others before ourselves. We are told it is better to sit in the back of a congregation and to be brought forward than to be one that puts themselves in the front just so we can be moved to the back.  Ego my friends, pride and lust, these are spiritual and physical traps laid before all of us in today’s society. In this time we are all living in we have as a culture gone beyond being a me first generation of the 1980’s. Today we have degenerated into a culture of a ‘me only’ life style. For those poor people who believe that there is no such thing as a ‘here after’, that there is no such thing as God, I feel so sad for them. To think that this life is all there is and that this life is all that matters is so sad.

 

Take a moment and look around the world today, so many people are filled with hatred and so much blood is being spilled in wars and in our own streets. There is a term used a lot in the World Court called ethnic cleansing that is truly a world-wide disgrace. Often throughout world history this has been done toward people because of race issues and culture issues yet the worse of these are ones that are dictated by a religion, this shows the pure evil that is this religion. We all live in a world of sadness where thousands of people die everyday whether by their own hand or by the hand of a murderer or even by starvation for there is no such thing as physical safety today. Friends there is no place on this planet that is truly a safe haven from evil, there is no place for anyone to hide. Even at the Vatican in Rome Italy the Pope has built high thick walls and employees many guards and has many escape tunnels. We humans try to keep ourselves and our families and our Countries safe but there is no such a place. Folks, not until Jesus the Christ returns in what is called the Second Advent when He Himself and His Angels put an end to this current evil system of things will there be true safety but even then, only for those who stayed faithful to Him unto the end.

 

I am going to close tonight with the words of the Apostle Paul that he wrote in the Book of Philippians chapter 2 verses 10, 11, 14 and 15. “At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow, the things in Heaven and the things on the Earth and the things under the Earth. And every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of the Father. Do all things without complaining and disputing. That you may be blameless, the Sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse Nation among whom you will shine as lights in the world.” For it is a truth that safety can only be found in faith in Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world.”
