Do Your Actions Really Matter? :: By Don Twobears

There are times in everyone’s life when you need to do things for the Lord God. More than likely, something that the Lord lays on your heart that HE wants you to do and to do until completion. It would be impossible for me to know what that something is, yet the Lord knows what it is. It could be to write something, to speak, or even to simply Evangelize to others. The thing is, one day we will all stand before the Lord, and we will give an accounting to the Lord of what we have done for HIM and what we have not. Just so you know, if HE has decided for you to do something for HIM and you did NOT do it, or left it half done, how will you answer to HIM?

All of us have a propensity to take the easy way out! Some of us will not finish what HE has asked of us to do. We may Procrastinate about it, maybe even try and rationalize it away. The question then becomes, how will you answer to HIM? What excuse do you think will work?

James 4:17 “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

As far as I can tell, that has to be the answer to the question. Would you agree?

I could easily decide not to write any articles, and I could rationalize it by saying “Well, I have Diabetes and I have Peripheral Neuropathy (Nerve pain). I also have Osteo Arthritis and my hands are really sore.” Do you think the Lord would accept that as a legitimate Excuse? I am presently writing this article with those conditions, and for that matter, it is 2:30 in the morning. Still as yet, I was asleep and I was hurting and woke up. I believe the Lord wanted me to get up and write this article and then get it published across the net.

Trust me, my Friends, I am just like anyone else; I would rather be asleep. Still as yet, I am Retired and I have all day to sleep. I truly do not have an excuse! So what if my hands hurt! Is it not better to do as the Lord directs?! And then to do HIS Will…when HE wants it done? The Lord provides me with everything I need to be able to write, when HE wants me to, and to write what HE wants me to write. I don’t know about you, but if I decided NOT to write this article, I would not be able to sleep! It is just that easy! Or difficult, whichever way you want to view it. So again, the question is, what are we supposed to do?! The answer is, whatever HE wants you to do and whenever HE wants it done.

My Ultimate point is, Life is already way too short; therefore, it is far better to make everything a worthwhile endeavor, especially for HIM. Your actions count when they are for the Lord! The Bible tells us that in Black and White;

Philippians 4:8-9 “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, DO: and the God of peace shall be with you.”

I believe this is the cold, hard truth! Please note each word, concerning what is said. This passage of Scripture tells you everything, “True, Honest, Just, Pure, Lovely, of good report, of Virtue, Praise.” And it says DO! Thus, there is no other question in anyone’s life, absolutely…anyone’s Life!

So how are we to interpret the Word of God when it comes to the Riots, the Fires, and the Social discord? Are we to be a part of these things or are we supposed to sit back and say nothing, or do absolutely nothing?! Do you feel, there is nothing… you can do about these things? I suppose one could sit back and do nothing more than fret about it, but would that be helpful? Please reread the Scripture above one more time. Maybe that is your answer.

How about writing or talking with others about supporting our Police?! How about writing our Politicians, or how about Financial support of our Churches as well as our Police Forces? Most of all, how about Prayer?! Should we all be involved with these things? We elected these Politicians; thus, they work for all of us. So, I must imagine that Voting would be important…right?! They need to enact Laws for our benefit, OUR safety; otherwise, we can simply vote them out of office! Most of all, we need to understand that we belong to the Lord God, and it is HIS Perfect Will that we must perform.

I have written a great deal of articles concerning “Sin in our Lives.” The Bible is very specific about Sin and how we must deal with it. It is my opinion that all this Unrest is Sin…in every way! Please reread James 4 once again.

I know that as long as man is walking this earth, there will be discord, because there is always Satan and his ilk. This Satan is a liar, telling anyone that it is okay to be lawless, to create strife! Satan whispers in your ears that you are special, more special than anyone else! So once you fall for his advice, he sits back and laughs as you go down. This is because Satan HATES YOU! You were created in the image of God, and that is enough for Satan to hate you with everything he knows!

Satan tells you how much fun you’re going to have, how much you deserve to be heard and noticed by everybody. He ignites your anger and your hatred if anyone should disagree with you, regardless of who they may be! Trust me, my Friends, it will never get better; it will get worse. We are in the End of Days! The Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ is very, very, close! Satan has a very short amount of time, and he will do everything he knows…to destroy you and your Family! Satan encourages Sin in everyone; he has done so ever since Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Thus, it is important for each of us to read the Holy Word of God every day, to spend time in Prayer, and to live a life that Honors and Glorifies the Lord God!

We must abstain from these horrible actions! We must promote the Word of God in every corner of our lives… we must bring the Lost to Jesus Christ! The best way to do so is to live our lives for Jesus Christ and let it show…to all. Maybe we need to dig deeper into the Word of God. Passages like John 3:16 may become deeper than we once thought. One thing is for sure,

John 14:5-6 “Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

My Friends, it is always One way or the Other; it is either Jesus Christ and Heaven…or it is Satan and Hell. YOU MUST CHOOSE.

A quick thought: when will you die? You don’t know? Then it is time for you to come to Jesus Christ!

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.”

Do You See the Times? :: By Don Twobears

How is it that people of today do NOT know the Prophecies of the Holy Word of God?! Do you ever think of this? We all, to one extent or another, watch the news every day. So now the question is, what are you seeing take place?

Here in the U.S.A., we see riots and violence and killings! Does this occurrence, make you wonder what all is going on? Why is there so much unrest, anger and violence? Would you be surprised if I told you these things were Prophesied in the Bible? I know some of you will scoff at this; some of you will read it and then disregard what is written in the Bible.

2 Timothy 3:1 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.”

2 Timothy 3:8-9 “Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.”

So here we are, having read what the Word of God says about these times right now! How do you feel about this? Do you see what all is taking place, the lawlessness, the violence, the “Reprobate Minds”? And for the Lost, you are reading what a Book that is older than 4,500 years has to say about everything that is taking place right now! This IS for everyone to read!

How is this possible? It is the inerrant Holy Word from God Almighty! You, my Friend, have the choice to believe it or not, to believe Jesus Christ or not and, ultimately, that there is indeed a Heaven and a Hell. There is indeed a Big Black Line; one side is Jesus Christ and the other is Satan. With Jesus Christ, you have Heaven, and with Satan you have Hell! Make no mistake, you will be on one side or the other, and it will be your choice to make.

Do you believe that we are living in the “End Times”? Please reread the passage of Scripture above. Do you think “Perilous Times” have arrived? Are people unhappy and looking for a scapegoat, someone to blame, someone to beat up or kill because they are not happy? Ya think?! What else do you see or feel in all of this? Could you be a victim of this behavior? And what are we to do about all of this mess? Do you think spreading money across the nation will end all of this? Absolutely NOT!

Do you believe that our “Leaders” will be able to quell these angry hearts and minds? NO! Simply because some of them are working to promote this unrest and violence, even paying for some to bring these events to life! So, if we “Defund the Police,” how will you keep from being beaten or killed by these Hooligans? Who…will have your back, or the backs of your Family? What about being able to go to the grocery store and buy food? Will there be an “honorable presence” there to protect you? Or what if you and your Family decide to go on vacation…what about then? Or if these so-called Leaders get their way and “Socialism” is in place. Do you really think things will be better, and you and your Family will be better off? Will the unrest…become Peace? IF…you believe that, then I know you believe in the Tooth-Fairy and Santa Claus as well.

What does the Bible say?

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

My Friends, the Word of God abounds in Blessings…for everyone…that comes to Jesus Christ! Yet again, it is YOUR choice! YOU get to decide…whether you want Heaven or Hell. God has never made that choice for you…you have made that choice all by your lonesome!

I already know, everyone loves the “Easy Way,” all the comforts and good stuff! So then, why would you choose to go to Hell? IF you do not accept Jesus Christ, you will go to Hell; even if you choose to not accept either way, you go to Hell! You must choose to accept the Gift of Salvation through Jesus Christ…IF you want Heaven…there is NO other way!

Just so you know, Eternity in Hell is awesomely horrible! There will not be any parties; as a matter of fact, you will not see anyone else! Your existence will be solitary, in scorching heat and depravity, knowing each and every moment that you could have accepted Jesus Christ…but never did. And once you are there, you will NEVER be able to change it; you will NEVER see Heaven! You had your chance while here on earth. Come, folks…THINK on this. The Bible never lies!

So now, I’m guessing that you’re wondering about how much fun you’ll miss if you ACCEPT Jesus Christ…right? I am a Believer in Jesus Christ, and I have not missed a single thing! I am happier than I ever was before. I see clearer and more accurately, I have Peace of mind, I have better Health, and I no longer worry about anything. MY Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Provides everything! So, if you’re worried about everything taking place nowadays, DON’T. The Word of God told us about all of this ahead of time. The Rapture is very, very, close…and I can NOT wait to meet my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I have made my choice already…so now I write to ask you if you have made that same decision for you. “Today is the day of Salvation!” Well…at least if you still want Peace and Harmony.

I Like knowing the future; I LOVE to read the Word of God and then KNOW where I am going in Eternity. I LOVE knowing I am SAVED by Jesus Christ…GOD. How about you? The future does not need to be something of wonder, or bleak and uncertain. Is there a needed change? Is there any Peace available for you and I? Absolutely…YES…there is, and HIS name is Jesus Christ! YOU must see that Big Black Line and then choose which side you want to be on. Trust me, my Friends, there is no way to sit on the Fence…it is one way or the other! Choose well…Eternity is a Really Long Time!
