Beware Those Who Scoff God

​First, understand this: during the Last Days, scoffers will come, following their own desires and asking, “Where is this promised ‘coming’ of his? For our fathers have died, and everything goes on just as it has since the beginning of creation.” But, wanting so much to be right about this, they overlook the fact that it was by God’s Word that long ago there were heavens, and there was land which arose out of water and existed between the waters, and that by means of these things the world of that time was flooded with water and destroyed. It is by that same Word that the present heavens and earth, having been preserved, are being kept for fire until the Day of Judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. 2 Peter 3:3-7 CJB

So why put this on 1 December? There are so many scoffers in this world today. The Christmas celebration has become a market for things of the world that bring a false sense of happiness and condition our children to desire things over desiring the true reason for the season. We are in the Jewish year 5778 which has been called the year of the Messiah. This means they are in total preparation for His coming. How do we recognize the times? God Himself said look to the stars for signs and know that the Words in Scripture are not just a good read but instructions and preparatory warnings for getting right with God before the time of judgement  (the destruction of the old and creation of the Kingdom). 

This is the world we currently live in.  Where a criminal who has been deported from a country he has entered illegally numerous times gets away with murder because his defense said it was an accident. What is this person doing back in the country in the fist place? So the guilty are set free and the innocent suffer? Is good evil and evil good? The family lost a daughter who had a lot of promise. A good family is lost because man judged the guilty as innocent. God help us.

Our time is short. The evils of this world are running rampant. Ways opposite of God’s teachings have become the law of the land because man has perverted God’s moral statutes in the name of progress and unity. This is written of throughout the prophets, Apostles, and Teachers of the Way. WAKE UP.

How we prepare ourselves is up to us. Be ready for He will come like a thief in the night. The earth shall tremble in His Name and the Word, Breath, Truth, of the Lord God Almighty will come to rule over us. Be ready, give no heed to the scoffers but stay focused in the Word not the world. Be prepared always for the holy reckoning where we will be transformed in order to survive the coming holocaust.  Live for God, Love like God, but do not laugh at those who laugh at us. God does care for all creation and I am sure it saddens Him knowing these scoffers will die permanently and never truly see the life and light. Be ready brothers and sisters the time is coming soon.   

Be Thankful

Ok, so I know you feel inundated with people writing about thankfulness and then you saw this. Well, yes it is another but then again is it?   David writes in Psalm 138 humbling himself in God’s loving arms. He recognizes who God reaches closely to and who reaches out but just cannot seem to touch and feel the warm protection of God’s arms. Why does it seem that even in his riches, David consistently humbles himself? He knows God and always looks to Him no matter the circumstance. Yes he made mistakes and even broke the Commandments but God still made good on His promise due to David’s humility and the humiliation that he suffered later in life. God was always with him because of his faithfulness and thanksgiving. David knew who was in control and understood that in his wrongness, God would somehow make things right. 

Some people really miss the boat when it comes to trying to understand why God sometimes allows bad things to occur. We are tested on a daily basis by the Adversary but God will make good from the bad. Not right away and it might take a generation or two but it will happen. As we go about our lives in the world today, stay humble, do your best to do what’s right and even if you fail, remember God is with you and will get you back on track as long as you maintain your faith.  

Live By The Will Of God

A life lived by God’s Will is a happy life. Living right and being encompassed in the Wisdom and Will of God will lead to happiness all your days. Okay that does not mean there will be no days of suffering and sadness. Is it not in the suffering and pain that we find joy in the Lord because He is with us and will guide us through it.
When we look at Proverbs 3:21-26 we see the father telling his son (we can say son and daughter here) to be watchful and not let the Word of God and the lessons learned from his mind and heart. Remain in the laws and statutes while being the one with integrity and he will go far. Is that not what we want for all our children? To remember the teachings of their youth and conduct themselves in a way that they will be successful physically and spiritually. Continuing to live in the way of the Lord and you will not stumble, nor will he/she have fear of the evil things in the world nor the bad things that happen to those who conduct themselves in an evil manner. God is watching and will keep you from harm.
This is all well and good from the perspective of an era where the evil that men did was not a bad as it is today. There are more dangerous fiends and demons who will ravage the thoughts and minds of our children now more than ever in history. So how do we protect the children? How do we keep them in God’s Word and trying to live a Christ-like life today? We must remain in God’s will ourselves and show the children a right way of living. This is the most difficult thing to do when around so much violence around every corner, people are becoming more and more immoral by the day both sexually and mentally. The Adversary is running rampant in the hearts of parents who confuse their children with thoughts that go against every teaching in Scripture.
What can we do, sit back and watch the carnage? NO We must act in the right ways of Jesus teachings, not sugarcoated but the real truth, that is the way to get people back on track. We must fight with God’s Word not our own. Many people live long and happy lives with no knowledge of God but they somehow make it. The people who have rejected God are the ones destroying us.
Turning back to living by the Wisdom (Word) of God and understanding His purpose in our lives is what will bring us back to His good graces. We must walk with Jesus as our constant companion. Now I am no soothsayer nor expert on how to do it I just know it happens when we ask Him into our lives, trusting and obeying His every word.
Brothers and Sisters, stay vigilant in our time of need. Let us work together as One Body in Christ.
