I wonder if you have ever considered, your next breath of air? Few of us ever do, yet what would happen if the combined elements of our air…changed? I know that many of us have been fishing and we know that fish need fresh running water or sea water to survive.
Yet when we catch the fish and we bring it on-board what is happening to the fish? It suffocates, because it uses gills to exchange the carbon dioxide for oxygen in the water; they do not have lungs as we do, thus they die. It is the exact same thing for you and me, if we cannot swim and fall into deep water.
This reminds me of the Flood of Noah. All those living outside the ark died in the flood, from suffocation. We were never meant to have any water in our lungs, so the water is a dire friend, even though we depend on it so very much to continue living. Very few ever consider that water and air are so important to each of us and yet, if they are in the wrong place with us, they can kill us.
For example, a small bubble of oxygen can block an artery in the heart and we could die from that. It is called an coronary arterial embolism. The same is true if we get water in our lungs, we drown. How strange is it that we live in such close proximity to water and air and they can be so necessary for us to live and yet in the wrong places, we die from them.
Now if you go and state this to a scientist, they understand it and will tell you that this is living evolution…wrong. The Lord God Almighty designed our bodies in a specific manner, as well as the planet we live on. Our bodies and this earth were designed to be together. One is not able to survive without the other, everything is accurately balanced for the other. For example, have you have ever considered the medication we use?
It must be in miniscule amounts, whether in pill form or intravenously; it is very small. The reason is for this is taken from how small our enzymes and proteins are and they affect us every minute of every day thus our medications must be likewise. Depending on the patient’s condition, too much or too little would have dire effects, possibly catastrophic. Too much or too little oxygen could kill us. As you see, the balances are very critical for our survival.
My point here is this: There is no way to expect “random change” or “evolution” to accomplish these exacting needs. God alone holds the balance of our existence in His capable hands. Understanding these things in our lives, points directly to our God. And we are able to read these things in His Holy Word the Bible;
John 15:4-5: “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 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.”
Genesis 1 tells of God creating this planet and everything in it; yet how often do we take that chapter for granted and miss the details that we rely on every second of our lives? The verses above, tell us that Almighty God did indeed create everything and every single detail, thus we survive for a period of time here on earth.
It would be folly to consider anything or anyone other than God to be holding everything in place so very intricately balanced at the same time. Although we humans are able to perform many things, it still requires that someone else did so in the first place.
We would never be able to provide a patient with life giving oxygen, if it were not in the air to begin with and continuously replenished…for us! These are continuous blessings of God to each of us, whether we are saved to Jesus Christ or not.
Isaiah 66:2: “For all those things hath mine handmade, and all those things have been, saith the Lord: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.”
Matthew 5:44-45: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
I do not want to hear how wonderful people think they are, I want to hear how wonderful and content a person is, by virtue of the Lord God Almighty. We live each and every day, by virtue of the love of our Lord God Almighty. We continue to exist because HE is waiting for each of us to come to HIM and follow HIM in every way there is.
Our lives are not our own to do with however we please, we were created by God and we must come to Him if indeed we want to exist for the rest of eternity. The verses above declare His power and ability and there is none other like Him; we live and survive to Honor HIM…not ourselves.
We are created in three parts; body, soul and spirit and they are not interchangeable; they are not to separate unless the Lord God allows it. We owe the Lord God everything we have because it belonged to Him, before He gave it to us and this includes our bodies. We are to remember that our bodies are the temple of the Lord God and we must be sure we care for them as such.
Have you ever looked at someone who has been a drunk all their lives? There are aspects of their bodies that are not correct—that is the result of this particular sin in their lives. Purposefully damaging their temple of God. The same can be said of the drug users, the prostitutes. Anyone who directly misuses their bodies are defying the Law of God and it shows.
The one thing we are never able to do, if we abuse the body, is to run away from it. Sin stains our soul and spirit and only the blood of Jesus Christ can change that and that my friends is TRUTH.
Isaiah 1:18: “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
1 Corinthians 6:19-20: “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
I have nothing else to add, the verses above say it all and they come from the lips of God Almighty; they are absolute truth. We are placed here on this little planet for a reason by God and that is to learn of Him and to Follow Him…that’s it! All the clothing and money and riches mean nothing. Or have you never gone to a cemetery and looked around? Have you noticed any building of big houses there, or how many banks are there waiting for the influx of wealth? Come on people, let’s get down to brass tacks. If any of these things were important to God, don’t you think they would be in the coffin with the deceased? Only one things passes on to the Father in Heaven— your spirit!
John 4:24 “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
So now you have it from God’s own lips, God is a Spirit! Now if God is a Spirit, what need is there for wealth or clothing or cars or a house, whatever? Those things are of the physical…NOT the spiritual. That is why there are no coffers of gold and precious stones, in a cemetery! What need is there for gold coffins or for satin inside, when all that is going to happen there is decaying of the body decomposition, that’s it!
If there is no life in a body, there is no need for prayers, those should have been spoken between that person and the Lord God…prior to death. There is no need for all the wailing and crying, I understand you will miss that person, but all of that is useless. Trust me friends, none of that will bring them back to life.
And to think, all of this has been going on for, well, since the first death. Have you not figured it out yet, “To do the exact same thing over and over again…and expecting a different outcome” is the definition of insanity. This would indicate we are all insane. The ONLY person to ever bring back the dead was Jesus Christ…and that is a FACT.
If you are expecting to go to heaven, without the blood of Jesus Christ covering your sin, you are wasting your breath! And we all know how important our breath is to us, or maybe you need to re-read this article from the beginning. Better yet…read the Holy Word of God—the Bible!
