Day by Day…Painstakingly!

Day by Day…Painstakingly!
By Don Twobears

In the Past couple of Articles, we have been talking about Sin, your Sin and mine. And the only way to go to Heaven, is to have your Sin covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ. It matters little of anything else, this world and its problems, Geo-political, Governmental, or anything else. We all know the Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ, is coming very quickly. We know these things because of the Prophecies we read of in the Bible, that outline, to a degree, of what this world will be like in the Last Days. And all we need to do to convince ourselves, that we are indeed in the Last days, is to look around ourselves and read the Bible. It’s all there!

We see the Apostasy of the Church, Pastors, Ministers and the Congregations, walking away from the sound Counsel of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Instead of Worshiping the Lord, giving Thanks and Honoring HIM, the gospels of these churches have been centered on making God Almighty an ATM machine. They are discussing everything, except the Wages of Sin, the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ for you and I. Itching ears want to know the secrets to wealth and prosperity, having a good time as if Church service was a social gathering only. And the monthly offerings are indeed large, making many a Pastor wealthy.

We watch as the Middle East is almost devoid of Human Compassion, governments rise and fall almost on a daily basis and the people die in droves. It would seem that the entire world has lost the Respect for Human Life! Comforts are non-existent, food and drink are scarce (At least being Clean) and so many are forced from their homes. Far too many die from diseases, brought about by war and conflict, as they huddle together, too close, too few medical resources being available. They take whatever they can get, or die of starvation and disease, in a land that is not theirs, where no one cares.

And here in the USA, we complain and riot, wanting what we want, rather than looking for the common good for all. Many would like to say, it is the fault of the Government, when we all know, it is an individual choice. Again, there is that “Choice thing” that no one wants to look at or study. And it would appear that the majority of the world, sees the USA as the place to be, with it’s streets of Gold. How odd, Opportunity is offered, but they choose that everything be GIVEN to them and no one ever questions whether they deserve these things or not. Everyone’s life matters, everyone deserves some respect, if for no other reason than Life. They come here wanting to have it all and yet few are willing to work for it.

Many of them raise their Home Countries Flag, above that of this countries Flag, they disregard our customs, our Language, they force their religion on others, whether asked for or not. They want to change our Laws to fit theirs, whether those laws of theirs are violent or not. We did not ask them to come here, yet they are not willing to integrate themselves into our ways. Our days have become tense and ridged, little to no wiggle-room for anyone. And then do not understand why Americans are angry.

As far back as I am able to remember, if someone does something good and nice for me, I am thankful. I do my best to return the favor, with Thankfulness and Kindness, in a way that is beneficial to all. What happened to that sort of sentiment?! Where did all this violence come from, all this hatred, that crosses the Racial divide. Where are all the churches, the Congregations, that should be out and about with everyone, bringing Love and Graciousness to all that need it? Why are these things lost in the Gospels, that should be taught in every church, to anyone needing a helpful hand? Is Jesus Christ anywhere in their thoughts, in their daily lives?

I was once in the Military, I know about war and once you shoot someone, they will forever hate you and everything you stand for! Is this really what you want from anyone?!

In the USA, we need to get back to our long forgotten roots, we need to take care of our own, we need to help each other out while there is yet time and most of all, we need to walk with Jesus Christ daily. Whom do you think made this country the world power that it used to be and whom is able to return us to that time and level? I believe that far too many have forgotten the lives of those before us and their beliefs, their ways of doing things, that brought about our well-being and benefits. Our Soldiers need you and I, to be there for them, to comfort them and help them build their lives again.

If you have not figured it out yet, Life goes from conception to the cemetery, it is far too short a period of time. If we are going to make our mark on this life, we have just so many years to do so. There is one thing that everyone needs to remember, Our Lord and Savior, is watching every thought we have and every action we take and HE is going to hold us accountable. It does not matter whether you want to believe me or not, I do know this! One day you will stand before HIM and you will either run to HIM as a child of HIS…or you will hang your head in shame, the Bible tells us that!

I can no longer worry about all the violence and hatred, my eyes are on Jesus Christ and HIM alone. This life is short indeed and because of that, I long for my Home in Heaven, I look forward to the days of True Peace and Safety…in HIS hands.

There is a problem, please remember that Word of God tells us, “there is a single, small path, that leads to a narrow gate…and FEW will enter there!” I don’t know about you, but that one small word FEW scares the living bee-jabers out of me, because I want to be one of the FEW. The Bible is rife with exclamations of what Hell will be like, or should I say, what it is! I do not want to go there! I want Life Eternal, I want to drink from the waters of Life, coming from HIS throne. I want to see my Family again and to be with them for Eternity, but more than that…I want to see Jesus Christ! I want to see the Creator of all things, I want to hear HIS Voice and know HIS Love. Since I have come to Jesus Christ, this life does not matter, other than to do as HE asked of me. HIS blessing to me are far too great for me to truly fathom in my “Finite Mind”, it is for me, the greatest Blessings. Family and Friends, beautiful days and wonderful food and drink, happy times at home….what else is there?!

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

What else is there?! What more could you ever think to ask for?! Does the fact that there are no two trees the same, or two people the same, leave you with absolute wonder?! Lets say the Lord gives you 80 years to live, do you know that every day of your life is different, no two are the same?! Each person and for that matter, every animal and bird, are unique and different from the rest. How is it, that so few understand this, so few take these wonders in to account? Everything we need to know about this life and the Life to follow, is found in the pages of the Bible, Gods Holy Word to you and I?! Do you ever look around yourself, at all the people and their ideas and wonder, if God is this Great, how can we be so lost?! If we take into account how old the Word of God, the Bible truly is, How can so many miss it’s usefulness?! Not forgetting the Miracles?!

I don’t know about you…but that little word…FEW…sticks in my mind, is etched forever in my brain and my Life! I no longer wonder, I simply must tell everyone I know, because again…time is short! I must live according to the following Scripture;

Ezekiel 3:18-19 “When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.”

From Gods own Lips to your ears…it is the Truth! God said it, I believe it, that ends it!

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.”

I use the King James version of the Bible and all emphasis is mine.
