Lessons Worth Re-Learning

This is my journey that the LORD Jesus Christ has taken me on in my life. So don't be surprised, this is a Christian site written by a Christian. Most of us have lived our Christian lives such that if we bloomed where we were planted, we'd be mushrooms in a cave! If you would like to subscribe to this blog, please send me an e-mail.

I am just like everyone else: I make it one day at a time with a little bit of humor. The Word of God is a fire in my heart that burns all the way down to my bones and I cannot hold it back. Jeremiah 20:9

The End Times

There have been many people who think they can second-guess God and fortell the end of things. Even Jesus said only the Father knew. He did say that you can discern the events leading up to it. But it's still like sitting at a red stop light. You know it's going to turn green, and you sit there and say, 'Now!' and that wasn't it. And you say 'NOW!' You were wrong again. Sooner or later the light will turn green, all on its own timer.

Don't be mistaken by the long duration that we have waited. Don't be deceived into thinking that it won't happen. Stay in the Word, keep praying, and build your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. There will be counterfeits, and you will only know the truth if you know the Truth, the real thing. You can only pick out counterfeit money if you know what the real stuff looks like. Take a bill and really look at it. Could you pick out a counterfeit bill?

I, myself, have to really watch myself and the image I portray to make sure I don't come off as a hypocrite. And it's really hard. The unsaved are watching us and holding us up to a magnifying glass that is cloudy because they don't have the truth. If I am to portray a risen Savior to the world, am I living as a worthy servant?

We are living in the end times. There are many things happening in this world that are clear indicators. When Jesus returns, will we be about the Father's business as portrayed in Mark 16? Or running around like chickens with our heads cut off, worrying about other things? When we pray that the Lord of the Harvest sends laborers to the fields, are we expecting Him to send someone else?

I am out here in a field, and there are a lot of unsaved people in it and time is running out. So are you. And I feel incredibly unprepared for it. But that is when I look at it with human eyes. God says to depend on Him FOR EVERYTHING. He is our All in All. Our Beginning and the End.

He is my God, my Healer, my Financier, my Bread, my Water, my Very Breath. I have come to depend on Him for everything. Commandment #1: "I am the Lord your God, Who has brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before or besides Me." Amplified Bible, Exodus 20:2-3

When I study the names of God, I see that He wants me to depend on Him for every aspect of my life. When I don't, I am insulting Him.

I still pray that I can say that one thing to that one person that changes their lives to believe in Jesus.
