The Perfection of Now.
The minister of Life is called by God to bring forth words of hope and encouragement and all of the reasons man should continue to trust in God. The answer is both obvious and irrefutible. Its either trust God or kiss your earthly self good bye. I personally have no faith in the goodness of man, nor religion.
The Christians had their annual "season to go to war (crusade) and kill the infidel if he refused to convert to catholicism, or burnt em like a roast pig to please God or some thing. The Muslims do the same thing, but call it "jihad" (Holy war) and are taught by some Imam's that death in the struggle brings one 70 slaves in heaven.
Paul taught us that confusion was the work of the devil.
Every one of us is a child of God. We gotta be! We all got the same Creator. There is only One Creator. Everything came out of Him. Jesus came and explained Him. He is identified as Love. Love doesnt' do anything but sacrifice Itself for the other being. The only hope mankind really has is to put on Christ, forgive your enemies, and do your best to treat your neighbor the way you want to be treated.
I keep hearing references to China going to war against the US, sooner or later. May it never be. Beleive it or not, there are more Christians, true believers, in China, than in the US. The Chinese tried to stamp it out, but the more they persecuted it, the faster it grew. I wonder if the Chinese government ever figured out that persecution to Christianity is what gasoline is to a fire.
I asked my 79 year old Mother In Law if she thought mankind was smart enough to "never use" the Nuclear bomb again? She said, "nope". I agree.
Since we believe the world is going to nearly destroy itself before "the lion lies down with the lamb." Give me peace on earth.
I learned the "Dooms Day Machine" is real. The Dooms Day Clock says its down to five or six minutes from MIDNIGHT. In truth, everyone of us is but a heartbeat away from meeting our Maker.
There are those that are convinced that the End of All Things is upon us. God is the God of the Living. He is also The Living God. He Alone is the Author and Finisher of our faith, and all things. It may be true that we are at the end of a 26000 year cycle, and everything starts afresh.
I looked at some of the pictures that the Hubble Telescope has sent back revealing the immense magnitude of the universe. When it comes down to us, we are mighty small in comparison with it all. God is Mighty Big, yet He thinks on Us. "Lord, what is man that You should think on him". Thank you Daddy God for sending Jesus and Your Holy Spirit.
