My Friends…we are in dire straits now days! I’ve been talking about our Sin and how it affects every single day of our lives. I have talked about all the weird stuff everyone, well…almost everyone, is into these days, like UFO’s or Ghost hunting, the Occult and the like. And it would seem that it is falling on deaf ears…so…I must guess I need to speak even more loudly!
2 Timothy 3:2-7 “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, highminded, 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.“
Does anyone else see these things taking place right before our eyes? Or am I the only one? I can still remember when President Eisenhower was in office. No one would have dared to do the things to him that are happening to, not only President Trump, but others as well. The Hypocrisy! The defamation of character, the willful lies and the like; it is now way out of hand, to be blunt about it all. We are able to see the Passage of Scripture from above taking place willfully, and too few care about the results! And then you hear people saying things that bear witness to the anger and dismay that they feel, regardless of others around them. Let’s not forget the violence as well!
This Kavanaugh debacle is way out of line! It is one thing to feel a man is not fit for a particular office; it is quite another to not only drag him through the mud, it is worse to destroy any man’s Integrity. Back in the older times, this sort of thing would have never crossed a single person’s mind. The News Outlets were trusted sources of information, looking to not only tell a story, but to do so with fervent Integrity. Their name was at stake! Today, they can and already have thrown their Integrity right out the window.
Problem is, one choosing to bring this out into the open is to ask for far more than scorn; they will endeavor to smear anyone that speaks against them! And what is worse, far too many have jumped on the bandwagon with them, enjoying the Character Assassination!
John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
How many still follow this Passage of Scripture? And then we read Matthew 18:21-22 “Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.”
How about the above Passage of Scripture? Does anyone still hold this passage, like all the others, close to their heart? I am beginning to doubt it.
Far too many people also forget to remember Romans 2:1-6 “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. But we are sure that the judgment of God is according to truth against them which commit such things.
“And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds.”
My Friends…there is NO escape from the Lord! HE knows everything in entirety about everyone; therefore, your actions will be recorded. What will you say to the Lord when HE reveals your actions to you? I know for a fact that there is no room for Excuses with the Righteous and Just Lord God. And everyone…will stand and then kneel before HIM. This is for every action, beginning with the “Intent of your Heart” – in other words, beginning with your thoughts!
You don’t believe in God? That’s alright; HE still Loves you and HE still allows you the next breath of air and the next Heartbeat. Still as yet, ALL your actions are being recorded. There is only one way out – Your Sins being covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ from HIS Cross at Calvary!
I still marvel at the callousness of most people. Who placed YOU here to Judge anyone? Remember this: Every time you point your finger at anyone else, there are three fingers pointing back at you in your own hand. Everyone is a member of this fallen Species we call humans. No one is exempt!
Isaiah 64:6 “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”
And what does the Word of God say about our Integrity?
Proverbs 10:9 “He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.“
Proverbs 20:7 “The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.“
This is from God’s Lips to our ears! And we need to be aware of this. Again, there are NO exceptions to this Rule…The Lord God KNOWS your heart.
So for the News Media, your actions are known and recorded. I would be very careful of what you say and then print…as in being Published. Members of Congress…there is only ONE God…and HE knows what your Heart is like, and you will face the Lord God one day!
My Friends, we must be just as careful of what we think and then what we do. We need to be forgiving and benevolent to everyone. I am truly getting tired of all this “It’s all about ME” thing. It never has been about you or me for that matter…it is indeed all about the Lord God…the Ultimate Judge! Let me say this: when the Lord God judges you and me…it is permanent. For all of Eternity. Now that is something to truly think about!
Right is still right and wrong is still wrong. Sin cripples us in almost every way there is to be considered… THAT is food for thought!
I have gotten to the point that I hate to watch the News, no matter who is giving that news. I am ashamed of far too many people. And to think, the Lord God knows about all of it!
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.”
Jesus Christ and HIS Holy Word, the Bible, is the only way back to being on Track to Peace and Harmony for all. We need to seek HIM at every turn, without fail. Is it not evident that we are horrible when we are on our own? Is it or isn’t it time for us to seek HIM, because HE knows the Past, the Present and the Future…HE knows all things…and about every single person?
We are not here for any other reason than to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We are to walk and talk with HIM, and our actions should Glorify HIM…NOT you and me. In other words, do you see how far we have fallen when we endeavor to push the Lord God out of our lives? What you see all around you today…IS the result. What a mess we are in…indeed!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.“
All Scripture comes from the King James Version of the Bible.
