What days we are living in today all across the world? Do you know what these days are called? (The end of days.) These are the DAYS just before the Rapture of the church of Jesus Christ! Our leaders are falling all over themselves in ignorant posturing and in failed attempts to fix what they don’t understand and never will, simply because they are the blind leading the blind.
Born-again believers and Bible students already know what is about to take place, because we read our Bibles! In the entire Bible from front to back, God has always told us ahead of time what is going to happen! So the situation is foretold, a “prophecy” and so who are the ones reading the Bible and then following it? It definitely is NOT our leaders! And, by in large, it is not our neighbors and other people we know. IF they did read it, then as a whole, we would NOT be in the situations we presently find ourselves in. Can I get an Amen, on this?
Good or bad, it’s always this: “I am this or that and everyone else is wrong, I am right!” And again, I am going to say the problem is this: “It’s all about ME.” Well friends and neighbors, guess what? It is NOT all about YOU or ME. IT IS ALL ABOUT JESUS CHRIST. He created everything around us and that includes you and me. Having said that, it definitely is NOT about YOU or ME alone, that is flagrant blasphemy of God! It is blasphemy because then we are trying to take HIS place in anything and that is against what the Bible says.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit” (Matthew 7:15-18, emphasis added).
I didn’t say this, it is in the Bible, which means that God said it and if God said this, then it is truth and we should listen to it. The question then should be to ask ouselves, “What are my fruits like?” Are we endeavoring to bring the Word of God to the lost, so that they will understand and accept the Lord as their Savior? Or are we too busy being concerned about ourselves? It’s a valid question!
I have problems, you have problems, but God is greater than any problem, anyone could ever have and that is the point here. I do not care what you are suffering from, God is still greater than that problem and if we are truly followers of Jesus Christ, then we should take that problem to HIM.
I am NOT saying HE is going to take that problem away from you or me. In HIS infinite wisdom HE already knows of your problem and knew before HE created the universe. Therefore, you may still have the problem and maybe HE wants you to learn to work around it and through it and if that is the case HE will give you the strength to do so. It is then to HIS glory and honor, not ours.
Do you understand why we have these problems? Do you know why our leaders are so ignorant and without common sense? SIN…that is why! We humans are full of SIN:
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)
If God stated this in the Bible, which evidently HE did, then it is the truth! We are definitely known by our fruit and we are definitely in need of the Lord, in every way. In everything we do or say it should be about HIM and no one else! And IF the times we are living in are so desperately wicked and bad, guess who brought that about? Not God…it was YOU and ME, that’s who.
This should make each and every one of us ashamed, especially before such a righteous and soverign God. WE are the ignorant people that should be on our knees continually and WE should be the ones begging for HIS forgiveness for our SIN. We are the culprits in all this garbage. We started this by walking away from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We should be asking HIS forgiveness and placing ourselves in HIS capable hands, which is where we should remain.
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).
This verse is asking the question, “Do we know we are saved and how can we be sure we’re saved?” You’re saved becauseyou know whether you have given your heart and spirit to the Lord and if it’s anything else then you are a liar! God is NOT the reprobate…it is you or me! It is impossible for you NOT to know whether you are saved to Jesus Christ. Again, your fruit will be evidence of it or not!
If your life is not happy, then change it! Call on Jesus Christ and ask HIM to save you, it’s that easy. If your life is not happy, then it is evident your against the Lord in some way and you need to identify that block, you must realize it is your problem and then ask HIM for HIS forgiveness. Ask HIM to make you whole again, talk to Jesus Christ.
Ask HIM if your problems will go away or are you meant to work through them. Somtimes somewhere along the way no solution can be found for an issue, therefore you deal with the problem every day of your life—just as I do with my problems. It may be the Lord is telling you not to try to fix it all by yourself, that you are not able to, therefore you must look to the Lord, for HIS strength!
The entire concept of the Bible….is to come to the Lord. Whatever your problem is, the Lord wants you to bring it to HIM. HE is the Creator….you are the created. You MUST understand this because if you never do, you will never know HIS strength, HIS willingness, HIS power, HIS love…for YOU. I did not say this, the Lord said so in HIS perfect and Holy Word—the Bible. PLEASE read it and find out for yourself as I did, and now I know that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I will not deviate from HIS Word for any reason!
