Empty Rhetoric

 

OThis world is in dire straits. Terrorists have become the new enemy…hard to find …hard to fight. Religious freedom is at stake, for that matter, all freedom. The United States is beginning to crumble while its citizens turn away in denial, following a path of self-pleasure, immoral sex, drunkenness, and drugs and self-worship. America is imploding from within, for the enemy is among us. The huddled masses yearning to be free are now the greatest threat. “In God We Trust” is empty rhetoric on the “god called money”.

Revelation 20:10-15 (KJV)

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Is That What You Want

The capability to break a law is found within. You may categorize laws as small or serious…like venial and mortal sins. You can say that you would never kill someone, yet if you have hate in your heart, you are a murderer. You would never commit adultery, yet the lust for another in your heart says you already have.

~
So, you roll through a stop sign…it’s breaking the law…so what. Doesn’t seem like a big deal…until the accident you cause results in a death. Now, you are a murderer. Did you mean to kill someone…no, you didn’t. Yet, you knew the risk or should have. You are the one who thinks, “It won’t happen to me.” Guess that wasn’t so. It just happened to you. Think!!! Sloppy driving habits can turn you into a murderer in the blink of an eye. It can happen to you…to anyone. Bad driving habits kill. Is that what you want?

So, you text while driving…so what. Doesn’t seem like a big deal…until the accident you cause results in a death. Now, you are a murderer. Did you mean to kill someone…no, you didn’t. Yet, you knew the risk or should have. You are the one who thinks, “It won’t happen to me.” Guess that wasn’t so. It just happened to you. Think!!! Poor driving choices can turn you into a murderer in the blink of an eye. It can happen to you…to anyone. Poor driving choices kill. Is that what you want?

So, you talk on your cell phone while driving…it’s not hands free…it’s breaking the law…so what. Doesn’t seem like a big deal…until the accident you cause results in a death. Now, you are a murderer. Did you mean to kill someone…no, you didn’t. Yet, you knew the risk or should have. You are the one who thinks, “It won’t happen to me.” Guess that wasn’t so. It just happened to you. Think!!! Poor driving choices can turn you into a murderer in the blink of an eye. It can happen to you…to anyone. Poor driving choices kill. Is that what you want?

His Ways and His Thoughts

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding”

Our minds are capable of incredible though processes. The progress that has been made through the centuries has come from this God-given ability to think, reason and create; with these gifts we have been truly blessed.

Even so, with such mental ability, we fall light years short of the mind of God. We are not all knowing, He is. We cannot see the end as well as the beginning, He can.

There are many events in this life that are far beyond our abilities to understand or explain, yet we try…and we fail. The best we come up with is the wrong conclusion.

When we fall short of understanding, God provided us with another gift, that of faith. We can allow ourselves to trust Him with what we don’t understand for His ways and His thoughts are higher than ours.
