Go Ahead, Pass this One Up – Part 2
By Don Twobears
Do you ever get the feeling that everything seems to be out of control? Do you ever feel helpless in face of all that is going on, of where you will be, of what you will be doing, it’s just NOT Safe anymore, or anywhere?
Do you feel like the only safe place is in your own home and if you leave your home you are at risk? And then we think of our loved ones; are they safe, will they be safe, or could you end up suffering great loss? My friends …welcome to the world of 2016!
We watch this world; the earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods and far too many other calamities and there is NOTHING we can do about it! You and I watch as Family Members come and go, Close Friends in distress (For whatever reason) and we begin to wonder…WHY?!
How much longer will it take for us to realize that we are not in charge of anything? Yet GOD IS!
Some of you will be sitting in church, feeling all holy—maybe even safe. The question truly now days is this: Are you safe? Are you holy unto the Lord? Are you safe in the hands of Jesus Christ? Some of you will attend funerals and you may be feeling despondent and sad and you begin to wonder what is this life on earth is all about. Well, the Holy Word of God makes it very clear that maybe…what you think this life is…is NOT correct. That you and I are not living this life as we were always meant to.
This incident in Nice France, so many killed and far too many wounded, goes along with everything else we have witnessed, and believe it or not—all that has happened since the end of World War II over just the last 70 years or so.
Why don’t you take a moment and take an accounting of all the calamities since World War II. Look at all the earthly natural occurrences that have befallen mankind for the past 70 years. Are you able to see yourself in any of these, if nothing more than a spectator. All the wars and threats of war; armed conflicts and the like.
Are you wondering what is going on? Why is it, that all of this is taking place now and for what reason? Pick up your Bible and seek the answers, it’s over 4500 years old.
2 Timothy 3:1-5 – “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away!”
Isaiah 13:6-9 – “Howl ye; for the day of the LORD is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.”
Oh man! Could it truly be, that the last days are at hand? Read again, the Holy Word of GOD and KNOW that time is short! The Rapture is getting closer, so then, the question then becomes: Are you going to be in the Rapture, or are you going to be left here? Trust me friends, it does indeed make a difference.
Matthew 24:8-12 – “All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
Do YOU think we are there yet?!
Everything is about “ME.” It has become the “It’s an ALL about ME” society, or do you not recognize that which is right in front of you? It has been in the Bible all of this time. In this life, somewhere along the way, the death of people has come to be a burden and a period of shame and sadness.
Yet you already know, everyone will die one day…because everyone here was born! Why is death, though, such a BAD thing? Maybe it’s that way for you because you do not believe there is any life after death; maybe you don’t like what the Word of God tells you!
If the Holy Word of God is true, then why don’t you read it? If the prophecies of the Word of God are happening all around you; so why don’t you read it and learn? Could it be pride in your heart? The Word of God says, “Pride goeth before a fall!” Proverbs 16:18.
How much longer will it take, before people will begin to realize that the Word of God is Absolute TRUTH!
I don’t care what your FAITH is, I don’t care what RELIGION you follow…IF…it is against the Holy Word of God…then it is WRONG, it is all about YOU, what YOU must DO! The Holy Word of God is about the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and HIS shed blood from
the Cross!” It is NOT about YOU…it IS about HIM (Jesus Christ!)
Let’s look at an example; If you must attend Mass on certain days, yet there is no mention of a relationship with Jesus Christ…then your LOST. If you believe you must go to confession to a priest…then you are wrong!
Jesus Christ is the ONLY one who can forgive your sins. The Eucharist is NOT Jesus Christ’s blood or body…it should be a representation of remembrance before the Lord. Jesus Christ IS God and HE IS in heaven!
Jesus Christ was born and lived and then sacrificed HIS Life on the Cross of Calvary; then HE was resurrected! If you do NOT follow Jesus Christ, then you are LOST. If there is NO relationship between you and JESUS CHRIST, then you are LOST! You will NOT go in the Rapture of the Church because YOU are LOST!
It means YOU do NOT know Jesus Christ as YOUR Lord and Savior…YOUR name will NOT appear in the Lamb’s Book of Life! Don’t believe me…go and read it for yourself in the Bible—God’s Holy Word.
Finally, my friends, brothers and sisters, if you want to be safe and assured that there is indeed a life after this life on earth, read the Holy Word.
John 3:16 – “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
