Being a believer in Jesus has given me an amazingly comprehensive perspective of life and the world we live in. So many of the mysteries of our existence and our future have been spelled out in a simple book. One that gets left and largely ignored in motel night stands all around the US.
The “so called” modern age with all its fantastic transportation, communication, medicine and freedoms all came about in order to fulfill the sayings of Biblical writers and prophets. Our Creator has enabled all this to take place in order for His people to reach all the world and all nations with the good news of Jesus of Nazareth, and His gift of salvation.
Sadly, very little has been made of this opportunity. I have little more than this simple blog and a few other feeble gestures towards getting this greatest message out to the world. We are riding the crest of this great communication era and who can tell how long it will last.
We also live in a generation that has been taught from toddlers up that they are animals and the product of nothing more than a complete accident. My wife was driving on a freeway at night and came upon the shattered remains of a young man, the father of a young toddler. For some reason this 22 year old had walked directly in front of a UPS big rig as it was going along at 65 mph and his life was instantly snuffed out. Why would a healthy young father do such a thing? Had he been stripped of all hope in life and his future? We can only guess.
But, this is the nature of the beast that has opened its mouth to suck away all the hope that is in the world. Whenever someone starts claiming that there isn’t a Creator, they in doing so, put themselves up in His place. All the religious cults have that thing in common. A leader that claims to be God. They tell us that all the other religions and faiths are wrong. Jesus was unique in that He revealed who He Is by his complete control over nature. And Jesus warns us that there would be many that would come along claiming to be Him and they would deceive many.
The scientific establishment is taking a similar course as the growing number of atheists are becoming more and more outspoken antichristians. And that should not be so surprising to believers in the Biblical Christ. We have been told ahead of time that battle for the souls of men would become more and more intense as the end draws near. Satan will attempt to deceive everyone he can and delude them into seeing Christians as the enemy of mankind.
Satan will make himself out to be the hero somehow in his drive to take control of society. It’s not coincidental that so many young people and even adults are taking on satanic symbols in the form of internet ID’s, and bumper stickers and tattoos. Ever walk into a video game store and see the overwhelming death, killing, cruel, sadistic and satanic influence in the “games”? The so called, “heroes” are turning into sadistic, vengeful killers that give the player a virtual serial killing spree. How long will it be before the villains are portrayed as Christians of one form or another?
Jesus, who died on a cross and made Himself alive again 3 days later, knows what things are ahead for each of us. He has great plans for all who trust Him and those plans include things so amazing and wonderful that no one has ever even imagined them. The one that engineered this universe and everything in it will welcome all who go out of this life believing. All those who side with the enemies of our Creator will pay the price in full.
Each of us must make the choice.
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
