A Real Man Knows the Word of God :: by Don Twobears

How odd is it that the majority of the world knows of the disasters at Chernobyl and the Fukushima (Daihatsu nuclear plants). What they do not realize is the lasting effects that come from these places. They are told that everything is contained and that everything is controlled and yet, these scientists are not talking about the real dangers.

It was devastating and deadly to a lot of people when these problems first occurred, yet what is unusual is not the first deaths (as bad as they may have been). Radiation has the ability to be present for as long as ten thousand years, depending on the isotope. And what is not being told to people, is that this time frame is to reach the “half-life” of those isotopes, not the full time of radioactive decay to zero or even close to that.

Again we see two areas of radioactive destruction on the globe, which (if viewed with a globe) are covering one-third of the planet. That is one-third of the plants, wildlife and people combined. These have taken place in the last 30 years! Let’s not forget the two atomic blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ended World War II. These occurrences alone will wreck havoc on the population of the world for a very long time.

Having said that, think for one moment about the El Nino’s (warming of the tropical pacific waters) and about the up-tick of weather anomalies, tornados, hurricanes, famines, droughts and the resulting pestilence. Then let’s take a look at the new viruses that have come along; H1N1 “Swine Flu” or the H1N5 “Avian Flu” and even more. Ask yourself if there could be a connection here or not?

Luke 21:10-11: “Then said he unto them, nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

Here’s the problem: “Don’t say anything though, about all these things! We don’t want to cause a panic, right?” That is what the governments of the world are saying. And why would they want everything to be suppressed? Have you forgotten the stone effigy, that sits in Elbert County, Georgia? Remember it specifically talks about maintaining a world population of 500,000 people, instead of the present 7 billion people that presently occupy this planet.

Why is there a specific number of 500,000 people? Resource control! Have you ever wondered if the government will seek to bring the world population to that level? Has it ever been a question in your mind of how they will accomplish this goal and when? Maybe you need to question the US government about all those FEMA camps that have been popping up all around this nation of ours—or maybe about the acquisition of all the ammo as of late.

Please don’t let me startle you from your cozy sleep or alarm you about the “powers that be” that have plans for you and everyone else. Well, that is of course, short of the social elite, of which few are counted (much less noted in the news). Don’t listen to the Word of God about the end times or the Rapture and Tribulation. Go ahead on and restfully sleep for now; you’re going to need it, if by chance you don’t go to be with the Lord in the Rapture. If you don’t want to hear of those things, you’re not alone. But that doesn’t mean they will not happen though!

And then let’s move onto the UFOs that have garnered so much of the news lately. Well, the news that sits and lives just beyond the front page news, that is. We already know the world will be at odds with the Word of God, at every turn, simply because the human race is a fallen society. It is easier for us to blow off the Bible, simply to make sure we are not held accountable for our own actions. We seldom, if ever, stop and think about after our death and what will happen to us. But then again, we don’t want to be held accountable for anything. So once again we fall back asleep, which is how many will be found when the Lord returns in the Rapture. Then they will discuss how the UFOs and the extraterrestrials came and whisked away the born-again believers from this earth.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-12: “And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work:only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 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.”

Do you ever wonder if this same “great delusion” is at work right here and right now?

You can be assured it is! Do you ever wonder if the wrong questions are being asked by the populace around us? The scientists are able to give a general idea of how old the Word of God is, yet no one knows for sure, except the born-again believers. They know the Word of God has been around for as long as God has been around, obviously this is too great a task for the un-believers to deal with. To deal with that one question would force them to deal with the accountability of their actions before a just and righteous God. And that just won’t work for them. (The very idea! The great thinkers of this world, unjust before a God they cannot see.) “Poppycock,” they say. Trust me, my friends, what we see today is only the tip of the proverbial Iceberg.

2 Timothy 3:1-7: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Revelation 9:1-5: “And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great 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, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.”

I did not say these things. The Lord God Almighty said them and it is HE that everyone will face and be accountable to. It would be easy for anyone to wake up long enough, to read this and then ask if they believe it would take place. Therein lies the problem. The Word of God has always been here for all of us, but too many are asleep, too many don’t want to take the time and read the Word of God. So everything that is taking place around them is by-in-large, happening while their asleep; they have no idea of what all is happening (just as they wish to be…asleep!).

I am acutely aware of how scary this information can be. I too had a very hard time thinking upon this and yet, it was so very important to face and deal with. It told me in a very simple manner, I had two choices, heaven or the lake of fire. I made my decision to come to Jesus Christ and now I KNOW I will see heaven for eternity.

Yes, I am an old man now, yet in my day, we had many, many examples of what a man needed to be, to be a real man. We had to be able to get from point A to whatever point all by ourselves. We were brought up to be strong and always willing to lend a helping hand; essentially allow others to climb on our wagon and enjoy the ride for a while.

I would take my wife and we would pull this wagon together, side by side. We would put our children aboard and our grandchildren, our friends for a period of time. We had to be resilient and strong, we had to have a fair amount of wisdom and  big hearts. We needed to be able to think of others before we considered ourselves. It is unfortunate that everyone has forgotten this now days, they are too busy with their “It’s ALL about ME!” In other words, too few real men, exist nowadays.

A real man knows that God exists and he knows it is God whom he must follow. A real man knows it is God that created him and that it is God who provides for him and gives him the strength to continue on. A real man knows what love truly is and uses it every opportunity he can, because this is how God Almighty is with him. From the war in Vietnam I learned, “We never give up, give in or go away.” With Jesus Christ at the helm, we learn to show Him first and always, until no one is able to see us, they only see Jesus Christ. If there was or is a perfect example of what a real man truly is, it is Jesus Christ, the One and only, who died for us.

A real man already knows, he is to care for his family and friends and get them to the ultimate place of safety and perfect health…heaven. A real man already knows he is to be an example to everyone else. The real man knows he is responsible for those on his wagon and that he must fight the good fight and make the difference for others. A real man knows he will have to fight the forces of evil and protect those on his wagon.

That strength will always come from the Lord and the Lord only. A real man knows his strengths and that his abilities have always come from the Lord, as the Lord designated for him. So the question is this: What kind of man are you?

A real man is always humble before the Lord, willing to let the Lord lead him and provide his strength, his direction. A real man has no problem with laying down his life for those who he loves and cares for. It is always one thing to talk about it and completely another to actually do it. Far too many now days talk about what a man is and yet too few really know what being a real man is!
