[Here it is the end of the year 2017, December 30th and in just a little over 24 hours we will begin a totally new year as a blessed people. Yes we have fires, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and typhoons happening all around us. There are those who are thinking – Ah Ha, I don’t have any of that happening in my neighborhood. I pity everyone who’s suffering. Well let me clue you in on something that one of my grandsons used to say to me, “Winters Coming”.
Our trust is in God and him alone to provide protection over our families, homes, communities and even our states and this nation we call ours, the United States of America. We have faced the brink of destruction and have been rescued by His Almighty Grace.
Some time back, 1989 or 1990 I came across a couple of books that provide an insight to the forces and events that shape our world. The first book is called “This Present Darkness” and it’s followed by “Piercing the Darkness”. I highly recommend that you read them and it will change the way you look at EVERYTHING going on today.
The bible tells us that we are not battling against things we can see, but the forces of this world, this planet are invisible, but very much alive and active. I’m not talking about ghosts and goblins and those kinds of things. I’m talking about spiritual forces, demons and devils (if you will) who have been sentenced by Almighty God and bound to the earth until such time as God say’s “It is finished” and casts them into the lake of fire, which He has prepared for them.
What amazes me even now is that people, humans and you may be one of them that think they are smarter than the creator and can outsmart their way into heaven by their charm, their wit and their sheer will power.
When Jesus was born that Christmas morning in Jerusalem he came as a wee little baby, wrapped in the skin of man, yet fully God. He came not to condemn the world, but to save the world, to save all mankind from the sin that began with Adam and Eve.
During his ministry years Jesus said “I am the way, I am the Truth and I am the Life and that no man comes to the Father except thru me.”It’s pretty clear, right?
From what I see everyone wants to go to heaven when they die. It doesn’t matter the religion because each one has a special, secret process that will take you down the road to heaven. All you have to do is find a holy man, tell him of your failures, do the ritual and maybe sprinkle some water and your good as new, right? Wrong!
Jesus also said to believe in him and to ask him to forgive your sin, turn from your wicked way and you SHALL have eternal life. It’s simple, right? What are you waiting for?
One religion will take you to the same place as every other religion when you die, but by then it’s too late to change your mind once you see the destination.
You will wish you could have a do over. Well friend I’m here to tell you that today, right now you can have a do over by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. It’s not too late. So what are you waiting for?
The bible tells us to believe in our heart, confess with our mouth, that Jesus Christ is Lord and we SHALL be saved from our sins. Then we simply must turn 180 degrees away from our sinful past and follow Jesus.
Has anyone ever told you that Jesus Love You? How do you know, you ask? The bible tells me so. – I am the Real Truckmaster
