Beyond the Unthinkable
Have you ever talked back to your mom? Sassed your dad? How did that work for you?
Have you ever gone to your boss at work and demanded……anything? What about while working at a job you really like you refuse service to a customer wearing a uniform and a badge? What about working in food service or fast food and did something unspeakable to the food of a customer who was you didn’t like? Or worse yet, pulled out a gun and shot someone because they disrespected you in front of your friends? Maybe you speak out for “women’s rights” to take the life of a baby in the womb? How much sense does any of this make?
I find no pleasure in watching the news broadcast the lawlessness being played out every newscast on every station day after day. Someone recently told me it was a bad time to be living in times such as these. I disagree because it’s a great time to see history unfolding all around us. It’s an even greater time watching biblical prophecy unfold and to be a follower of Jesus Christ telling others the good news “Jesus Loves Them”.
2 Timothy 3:1-4
1“But understand this: In the last days terrible times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, 4 traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!”
I don’t claim to understand what is going on or who is behind the scenes pulling the strings but rest assured that Almighty God is fully in control. The good, the bad and the ugly he will use to fulfill his purpose and bring glory and honor to him.
All of these street thugs acting out every fantasy they can imagine. Tearing down statues, defacing property while they destroy, loot, and burn to their hearts content will never be satisfied. The sad part is that they need Jesus just as much as we each do. They don’t know it and won’t unless someone tells them. Will that someone be you?
8 But what does it say? “The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.
11 It is just as the Scripture says: “Anyone who believes in Him will never be put to shame.” 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Greek: The same Lord is Lord of all, and gives richly to all who call on Him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
14 How then can they call on the One in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in the One of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? 15 And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” 16 But not all of them welcomed the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?” 17 Consequently, faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
The election of a president has never had a reaction such as we see today which is not about Donald J. Trump. It is about evil continuing to rebel against truth and right. I won’t call it a battle between good vs evil because there is no power on earth that does not answer to Almighty God.
I must ask whose side are you on; who’s your daddy; who’s water are you carrying? – I am the Real Truckmaster!
