Choice for Truth

Truth is enormous. It is the biggest and most endangered species in the world. Not because it isn’t everywhere, for God is truth and He is everywhere and His Word, the Bible is truth and most people have one in their homes. However, we have allowed the comforts and distractions, desires of this world to water it down. Hollywood has done this. Politicians have done this. Pastors and preachers have done this. You and I have done this. It is no coincidence that Satan is named by God as the “Father of Lies”. But we can rectify this potentially fatal flaw by raising Truth/God to its rightful prominence and allow the power if Truth/God to flow and work supported by us and not encumbered. Truth has always had the greatest power we know, power to free all men, power to destroy evil and forces of evil, power to preserve and promote life and free life, power to right wrongs, power to forgive, power to restore. We must all, each and everyone one of us, choose truth over comfort or greed or selfishness or gluttony or laziness or evil. Choose truth and promote it. Embrace it. Truth is hope. ❤

The Truth About God and Eternity

Our holy, perfect, beautiful, loving God lives. He always has been. He always will be. He certainly can handle everything we have before us to face. God certainly deserves our worship and praise. God definitely is the only One who deserves anything good. Marketing agencies selling things based on people’s horrible inclination to pride and selfishness and “You deserve this” and “You deserve that” garbage have served only themselves at the risk of all of us by feeding everyone’s dangerously prideful ego and creating an atmosphere of entitlement rather than service. They will be punished. God is the only One who deserves anything good. We do not. Let me be clear and speak that truth again. Only God deserves all good things. That He chooses to generously share them with us is further proof of why He deserves good. 

God loves us so much, and that amazes me. We who let Him down over and over He cherishes and keeps pouring love and grace out to us to win us over. God is trying so hard to get our attention to the urgency of things, the valuable importance of knowing that you are actively choosing either Him or the damned (quite literally) enemy and not choosing a side is in fact choosing the enemy. There is an urgency to call everyone choose to be saved by Jesus by calling on the name of Jesus for eternal salvation. It is imperitive that you do this now. We don’t know how much time we have left on this planet but it is not long…. could be seconds, years, minutes, hours. God only knows, don’t believe false prophets who say otherwise. God is everything. It is all about Him.

God made us lovingly on purpose for Himself, to tend to His world, to serve and worship Him. And now we decide whether to be with Him or to be separated from Him in torment and anguish forever. It is our own choice, not His… He wants us all and arranged salvation for anyone who humbly asks and call on the name of Jesus to be saved. Decide and put your energy into that decision. Read the Bible more and pray more and fast more if you are already saved and help save someone else. Time is short. I am not in the least privy to how short but the Holy Spirit living in my heart says it is short and He speaks truth. 

Please know that you are deciding to be on the side of good or evil. You are deciding your eternal fate actively. God is not deciding, YOU are. He does not want anyone to go to hell. Hell was made for the fallen angels/demons who rebelled against Him and have caused so much harm and destruction to what He made and loves. But He won’t force you to love Him, He loves you too much for that. Know that you are actively deciding to accept or reject the God who made you in love every minute of every day. It is YOUR decision. Every moment of the day you decide again. Do not decide to be away from God when this world comes to a screeching halt, and it will. The train will stop and you will get off in eternity and face judgment. God will decide who goes to heaven or hell based on YOUR decision to be saved by JESUS, the only name we are saved by. And there is no excuse that you are “not religious” or “didn’t know”. God gives ample opportunity and your choice is informed and purposeful. You ARE religious, you worship something. Just because you choose to worship yourself or some addiction or idol or other God of a demon’s making or another person rather than God is really you saying “I don’t want anyone telling me what to do. I want to do what I want to do.” Not wanting to be bothered is still deciding you and your comfort are more important than God and Jesus’ sacrifice of dying so you can be saved if you humbly ask Him. It is still YOUR eternal decision to follow God or His enemy, good or bad, right or wrong. And not choosing IS choosing wrong. You always are actively choosing so please choose wisely.

This is a lot of truth but I must speak it boldly and bluntly for time is short and many will be lost or left behind if they do not humbly pray to accept Jesus as their Savior. He so longs for us to. Do it today while you can. Be saved. Get in His lifeboat. Get an eternal reservation in a heavenly mansion. You will be eternally glad you did!!! He loves you so much! I do too.❤❤❤

Contemplations

Sitting on a sultry day when I should be working and sweating, covered in dirt, I am sitting on a cushioned couch working on my quilt in air conditioning, watching Sherlock Holmes. And sweatingomething about this playing hooky has brought out my contemplative side, which is alway on point. I have thought of this case they just solved where they knew a 747 would blow up and they had to decide what to do about it. And I thought about eternity and how easy it would be if we knew the day and the hour of the rapture of Jesus’ true church like they new the flight and time that made up flight would blow up. If we all knew exactly, people in the know would go out of their way in desperate enthusiasm and tireless energy to warn everyone. “It is happening!” “Be warned!” “This is it!” “Repent for it is now you will meet your Maker!” And even then, there will be people who dismiss the warning as crazy and not listen or laugh at them or blow them off as misinformed or blowing things out of proportion. They would board that plane. They would perish and there is no coming back from that. Others would heed the warning and wait and see what happens, taking a later flight just to be safe but not really changing. Some would heed the warning and change, beg forgiveness, forgive, love, read their Bibles, pray, work on their relationship with Jesus and get ready.  And this would of course be the wise thing to do. 

The thing is, we don’t know the day or hour. Why? Because if we knew, there would be sinning up to the day before and then clean our acts up just before show time when we had to. I know people. God does not want that. He wants a relationship with us. He wants us to want Him. He is passionately in love with us and wants everyone to listen to Him and choose Him. And the truth is we are all choosing Him or choosing to be forever separated from Him. We are always choosing sides. Every time we choose to look at that bad thing, say that bad word, be distracted, not help when we can, choose to lie or believe one, refuse to pray, refuse to read the Bible, gratify self, be selfish, etc. Each time we knowingly or unknowingly choose any of those things, we choose to walk one step away from God.

The thing is it is 100% correctible. There is a beautiful, precious truth that we may be 1,000,000 steps away from God but He is ever only one step away from us. All we ever need to do to grow close to Him is humbly pray. And that is the absolute truth in an evil twisted world so desperate to hide it. That is truth, friend. His love for us is unprecedented.❤

Many Religions, Only One Truth

I will never buy into the all religions get you to heaven, all are right and you just pick one and go. How is that possible? It isn’t the truth, you see. It is an imaginary invention, a lie for the masses to keep as many away from eternal life as possible. What makes me so sure? Two things: the Bible (proven truth) and the power of the Holy Spirit, mixed with the proof in nature that these things are true. The Bible is the truth. It has never been proven untrue and has withstood the test of time and tests of truth. What it says is true. It does not speak of an additional volume coming later and quite the contrary, it places a curse on those who add or take away even one word of it. That tells me it is complete in of itself. It is the entire story, the whole instructions we need to live, everything we need to know to be assured of salvation for all eternity. And it is all about Yeshua Ha-Mashiach/Jesus Christ (two translations of the same name). This is the book of Jesus Christ. He is the only way to be assured of salvation. He is God, one of the trinity, the one born as Man to sacrifice Himself out of His great love for us so we may have eternal life with Him. God, the Creator of everyone and everything we know of, is the only true all-powerful eternal, all-knowing, all-present love, full of grace and love and wanting everyone He made to be saved from their sin and ignorance. There is ample evidence in history and nature and especially in the Bible. And when saved, the Holy Spirit and His love and power and the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) grow in us and provide further proof. It is amazing to have n peace and assurance and unconditional love!!!❤❤❤

Push Back

The closer we get to God, the greater the pushback of His enemy. The better we are/act/do, the more we are attacked. This is to discourage us into giving up or in, to quit and just be bad like everyone else. And as much of a fighter as I am, I cannot fight these abuses alone, I need constant refueling with God. I need His nourishment and rich love. Sometimes I feel He is the only One who loves me. And even if that were true, His love would be enough. And there is great strength in knowing these things. There is great beauty in the truth. ❤❤❤

Longings of the Soul

My body has longed for things and people I should never have longed for. And that is a shallow, emotional matter which requires the help of God via self-control. I am not speaking of that otherwise. I wish to speak of the deep longings of the soul, the spirit. Most churches/pastors/society denies our depths in favor of the easier and more palatable surface/body/shallow/physical issues. Easier, lazier to deal with. Obvious. A moron speaks of such things without ever going deeper. The deeper longings of our soul and spirit are where our shallow stuff comes from. It is the why we do what we do. If we auchddress the behavior but never they why, there is a huge chasm in relatability and practicality and intelligence there. We have to go deeper to grow in spiritual maturity and deeper relationship with Christ. It just has to happen. So we have to ask ourselves heavier questions? “Why was that a temptation?”, “What made that desirable?”, “Why does that bother/anger/trigger me?”, “What do I need that I am not getting?” are all questions to start digging with. Sometimes we get stuck on anger comfortable, familiar lie that got stuck in there and replayed so long we take it as truth and it is tripping us up. For example, every guy I dated told me I was fat and criticized my appearance. So I took that as fact. I was unlovable because I was fat. Every guy. But I started digging. Why does it bother me what guys think? What do I need? And it turns out I have a deep desire and longing to be loved and accepted as I am, secure in love. And I was drawn to men who were critical because I was raised with criticism and that was a comfortable lie that I had nothing but flaws. The thing is, once I realized where I screwed up, I could correct it and if guys started criticizing, bye bye. I adndccepted not going to be comfortable around lies again. And further, I repented of that sin and sought out God to be.my loving security and His perfect love is the only kind that loves me as I am. See, God is Who I needed the entire time. ❤❤❤
