A Question Worth Pondering
Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, and his redeemer, the LORD of HOSTS: “I AM the first and the last; besides ME there is no GOD.” Isaiah 45:6
Have you ever asked yourself the question: If the world and its way of thinking are so good, then why does it persecute those who are Christians, and Jews? If America is going in the right direction then why are they so bent of getting rid of the Only True GOD?
Those who are trying to get GOD and HIS teachings out of the marketplace, are of their father, the devil. Mankind’s way is the way of death, GOD’s way is the way of life. GOD promotes love and all the religions of the world promote death and self. Stands to reason if the world is running towards death and destruction, the only sure cure is to run the other way. There are two religious ways in the world today that run towards life and one came out of the other.
Jesus was a Jew, HE was born of a woman into the Jewish culture. HE came to give the Jews the fulfillment of the Law that they cherished and tried to live by. The problem is that No One Can Live By the Law, except that they are indwelled by the HOLY SPIRIT. Even with the indwelling of the SPIRIT we have trouble.
The world is evil and wants the light that GOD sheds on it to be extinguished, so they, who are driven by the devil, do all they can to put that light out. The children of the darkness want to live in darkness so that their sin and decadence can’t be seen. They stand up every day to push us farther and farther into the darkness that they live in. Case in point. The ACLU, who says that they are all about rights, systematically file suit against any mention of GOD in our schools and government. They say that they are protecting our constitution from those bad folks who are trying to promote one religion. I believe that you can see the harm they have done.
ALL the religions of the world are false, whether it’s Hindu, Islam, Shin Taoism, or any other that lifts up self and or and finding one’s inner self or promotes a false god as the only true god. The GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the ONLY TRUE GOD. Besides HIM there is no other. This is why the world does not turn to HIM. They know that HE exists and that HE has rules and that HE is strict and narrow, being that HE has provided ONE Way to heaven, through HIS Son Jesus Christ.
I’ve always been one who doesn’t do what everyone else is doing, I’ve tried to be an individual. I don’t do drugs because it is the In thing, I don’t follow the way the world operates because to my way of thinking, if everyone is doing something, it isn’t necessarily the right way to go. Why not stop and check out what is really happening in this world today? I know that folks don’t want to think about this, and many say that it is not positive to think about these things. I would say that if you see a bridge out it’s best to stop before you plunge into whatever is below that bridge. We may not be able to stop the world from plunging over the edge, but we can, at least, individually stop from falling to our death and destruction. Who knows maybe if enough of us individuals stop pretty soon there will be a majority?
The Muslims kill you if you don’t believe their way, the Hindus have their cast system and can never get to the place they want to go. GOD has one thought, that HE loves you. HE says turn to me, or Don’t. It is your choice. HE loves you enough to allow you to make the choice and doesn’t say you have to. HE loves you enough and respects your Will enough to not force you into something You don’t want to do. That’s what love is. It’s is having the power to keep something but letting the thing decide if it wants to be kept.
If the other gods of this world are so good, then why do those who follow them have to force people to do what they say? Why don’t they take a moratorium on force and let their god enforce itself and it’s rules? The reason is because they can’t, because they are not gods but figments of some person’s imagination. Elijah proved that several thousand years ago, when there was a contest between Baal and the ONLY LIVING GOD. Only the MOST HIGH GOD, can show up because HE is real and not an imagined deity.
Selah, pause and think about what has been said. Take a break from the world’s way of thinking a ask GOD to reveal HIMSELF to you. You know what? HE will. And you will know it is HE because he never goes against HIS Word, or the Bible. GOD has put HIS Word above HIMSELF and it doesn’t change because HE doesn’t change, even if there are those who try to change it. Don’t believe it when someone stands up and says that they are a new apostle of GOD and that they have new revelation. GOD has given HIS Word and while HE will help us to understand what HE has already given, HE isn’t handing out a new word. Heck we can’t even comprehend all the HE has given in what HE has given.
Oh, by the way, if you are a believer in some other god, don’t bother trying to kill me. Why not let the one you follow do that? It might save you from getting into trouble with the law.
Until next time, thanks for looking. al
Thanks for this amazing post!!! I felt the ire of others this week when I pointed out a few things. You are right and my born again Christian brother tried to tell me. You and I are not going to get them to see. I went into my protection mode with my bipolar and PTSD disorders. My other brother who has worked in the field of mental illness, his whole career at least got them to understand what happened. It was a mix of put down for another person and bringing up something that happened over 20 yrs ago. My dad died Friday, March sixteenth. My mother did not any rehashing of this. I felt isolated after what I said. It was what I felt in leaving my family in Lebanon. No one wanted to listen to me. I pray someday the Lord calls them all. Thank you God for not giving more than I can handle. He works through me without words, sometimes better. Amen. Lord Jesus.
Reading the truth daily always declares the way to the Lord our God.
