….I looked up into the heavens as evening was dropping its curtain over the earth and I saw where planes had been flying and I think tonight is the night of that “special”moon, is it not?
Od was inside safe for the night and so I, having my rollator with me, decided to take a walk around the South Campus. I didn’t go the whole campus but part of it. As I walked, I prayed for the person in the apartment I was just passing. I have been here long enough to know “almost” every one on this South campus.
As I walked I was well aware of some who despise the name of Jesus. Others, who feel He really isn’t important to them, they have things in their lives that they feel take care of them. (Yelp. They do.) They are being taken right down the road to the burning fires of hell and won’t know it, admit it, or believe until they cannot turn back and they fight the last few feet – the last few blocks – the last few breaths that they take and then they won’t even have the time to wish they had listened. Sad apartments in some places.
When I came home, I remembered Matt. 7:13,14. I particularly like it in The Message.
“Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easy going formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life – to God – is vigorous and requires total attention.”
I see more and more people now who have to have something they can see and they can feel. Living by faith is almost extinct. Old. Out of date. We have to “feel” good. “Feeling” is the only way to have sufficient comfort. The Bible is not that way – we are not robots – God gave us a free will – and with a free will we can choose to give our lives over to Him. And with that free will we can also turn against God, too. I have in my life time had people who have had the nerve to say that God has given them His blessing as they have reached out to “others”, other than Him.
There is only “one” in all of the Bible that God gave a person or persons over to and guess who it was!!!! The Book of Job. God and Satan had a chat and God gave Job over to Satan to do with as he pleased except he could not take his life.
Martin Luther labeled Satan as “the prince of darkness”. Revelation 20:10 tells us that the devil who deceived them will be thrown into the lake of burning sulfur forever and ever. He has been called Lucifer which means Morning Star found in Isa. 14:12.
This is my last time to write of this. My last plea to you out there. You have a choice: burn in the lake of burning sulfur forever or turn to the Lord and have Life Everlasting. There is no place in the Word of God where He tells us that He will allow us to go to anyone or any group any where in time to find help that He could not or did not give you. He offers us everything ONLY THROUGH HIS SON AND HIS DEATH ON THE CROSS. We have everything because of that. When we go through a deep, dark valley He is with us, walking through it with us. We are not kept from it but we have Him with us.
You, my friend, are being led by Satan – Lucifer – The Angel of Light. Yes. He is called an Angel of Light. In 2 Cor. 11:14 we read Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. Who do you think is “helping” you? Remember Satan gives the best first – that is what catches you in his clutches but the end is burning sulfur.
It is most interesting that all of the Cults have their own “book” and in some cases, the Bible along side but it is secondary. ALWAYS they have their own material. What about the Bible!! No need for another book to “help” because the One who created us and all that has ever been created is the only BOOK needed.
Just know my friend that burning is still an option. Some day the option portion will be extinct and no longer something that your free will can contend will. You can still at this point make your own choice but I guarantee time is running out. Don’t wait too long to do what you know you should do.
