Still Here?

Okay, what you have read so far makes it pretty clear that there is a lot more to learn. Most of what you need to learn has to come from your own choice to do just that.....LEARN!

Possibly the following passage from the Book of Revelation, (the last Book in the bible) and the one most revealing the future, will open your eyes a bit?

Revelation 21:8 (HCSB)

“But the cowards, unbelievers, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars—their share will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”

Now, whether the “lake that burns with fire and sulfur” is an actual lake or a metaphor remains to be seen (given the bible’s many references to it, you should assume it is real) and only those folks who fit into these listed categories will personally find out… their everlasting pain.

What do you think? Do you want to take a chance that the bible is an “Alternate Reality”? Maybe the product of a religious conspiracy to do…..what???

Do you think that world conditions right now aren’t indicative of the signs, described in the Book of Revelations (you DID read it didn’t you?) that precede the Second Coming of Jesus?

Now, I have to admit that without the Faith in God to believe in things that cannot be seen, and that are very difficult to comprehend, it is natural to be hesitant to accept these things as being true.

John 3:12 (NRSV)

“If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?”

Mark 10:15 (NRSV)

“Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.” (Meaning a child believes unquestioningly about things like the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, Sandman, and other things they cannot see.)

There is another obstacle to getting into Heaven. Money, wealth, greed, power, and authority.

All of which, once accumulated, bitten by, gathered, or stolen, are almost impossible to voluntarily give up. It is Mankind’s nature that once he is comfortable financially, whether he has earned it or used underlings and others as rungs on his ladder to success, he wants to keep it that way.

Matthew 19:23-24 (KJV)

“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

Tough words…..if you have wealth.

1 Corinthians 1:26-27 (TLB)

“Notice among yourselves, dear brothers, that few of you who follow Christ have big names or power or wealth. Instead, God has deliberately chosen to use ideas the world considers foolish and of little worth in order to shame those people considered by the world as wise and great.”

God doesn’t rule out those with big names, power, or wealth. It seems they pretty much do that on their own.

I hope you are beginning to see that salvation isn’t for everyone. That’s not to say that everyone couldn’t be saved, but human nature makes it difficult, if not impossible, for way too many people.

Our so-called “human nature” is a product of Satan and none other. He has filled the souls of so many people with lust, greed, and hate that they have passed it to their children and their children, etc. to the point where they not only think that is a way of life but also lost any semblance of decency, empathy, honor, or honesty.

  • They have become purveyors of mis-truths and out-right lies.
  • They get their news from social media outlets and other sources recognized for their distortions of facts.
  • Politicians are taking bribes from crooked businesses.
  • Mothers are throwing babies into garbage bins or drowning them.
  • Racism is growing exponentially.
  • Gender discrimination is rampant.
  • People can no longer tell the difference between facts and fiction.
How about the fools who claim, despite the overwhelming evidence, that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Democrats? Those are the same rocket scientists who claim that the Covid-19 Pandemic was man-made to ‘thin out the population’. up your bible, do a little research and say with a straight face that references to “end times”, “antichrists”, earthquakes, plagues, wars, etc. are just a coincidence. (Things are getting tougher to deny aren’t they?)

Isn’t it amazing how easy it is to drink Satan’s “Kool-Aid” when he has blinded you to the truth?

All these years God has been trying to reach out to get your attention in such a way that He could never be accused of influencing your decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

He knows it HAS to be your choice to accept Jesus so, rather than whack you in the head to get your attention, He sends the Holy Spirit to try to wake you up.

The Holy Spirit works silently as/with your conscience to get your attention. I refer you back to the “A Tiny Voice” poem that God inspired…..and had me write?

That tiny voice nagged at me for decades before I finally ‘woke up’ and acknowledged what it had been trying to tell me all that time. (In full disclosure, I am not the brightest turnip in the tree.)

If you had known me when I was younger you would remember that I was someone who was pretty sure that laws, rules, regulations, and orders were simply suggestions. Neither binding nor enforceable.

I am most certainly NOT the person one would expect to find writing a book trying to bring people to Jesus. Even I am having a bit of a problem with that.

Who knew? Certainly not me.
