I remember my brother and I when we were kids playing with a discarded auto battery. Our Dad had told us not to touch the battery. To us two that meant check the battery out. We played with it. Two days later our Dad called us and asked if we had played with the battery. We immediately said no while standing with our clothes being eaten away by the battery acid. Wow, I was only hours away from being butt naked. Luckily, since we were only 6 and 5 of age Dad let us off the hook, and said don’t play with the battery any more because the same will happen to you all clothes.
Now that I am very adult, the above incident reminds me of people when asked if they would like Jesus in their life, and they respond I am doing fine on my own. Usually this is far from the truth. After all, who does live in a heavenly state and doesn’t have problems. Who in the world has control of all external circumstances. What we have is hope and faith in what is in the front of our noses. Looks as if one would acknowledge that one has to pray for their kids when they are out of their sight for a long time.
In a general sense, the world is becoming more dangerous than ever. It has become common place for innocent people to be suddenly and unexpectedly killed. We have persons perpetrating heinous crimes upon a massive number of people. Mass murders has become common place; the number of serial killers is increasing yearly. It has been said that there are at any given time at least 37 active serial killers in America. Now, there exist powerful weapons which can destroy the world within 20 minutes. Chemical weapons of mass destruction also can wiper out a city the size of New York within hours.
Why all of the fanatics and nuts in America? Simple, we have gotten away from God. People are being turned away from Jesus by secular influence. Atheist has made quantum leaps within our government; even the Supreme Court. We are socially practicing “what is before your nose” is all that matters; taking actions if you can take the consequences.
Our minds are presently in danger of losing original thoughts. Science has the ability to anticipate your every move and spoken word. Actually experiencing life in a free democracy is slowly coming to an end. Our social machinery has the power to target any private citizen and subject the individual to public scrutiny while molding the targeted person into what the social machinery desires. At such time the person shall know from the acidity that the social machinery is not Jesus, but instead is Antichrist.
Everyone shall at this time know from where their inalienable rights should come. All can be saved by listening to every word that proceeds from the mouth of God and obeying and practicing Jesus’ love. The Golden Rule of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” has the ability to turn the acid into sweetness.
For most people happiness is always in the tomorrows. Jesus says “Heaven is at hand.” because He brought Heaven to Earth for the now.
- 1 Corinthians 1:7
So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
- 1 Thessalonians 2:19
For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?
- 1 Thessalonians 3:13
To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of ourLord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
- 1 Thessalonians 4:15
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
- 1 Thessalonians 5:23
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
