Lost in a Sea of Confusion
By Don Twobears
It’s with a heavy heart, that I talk about how we perceive ourselves and this is for everyone. I must say, the latest of events is a good example of this. I say this because of how we used to be, a Country of Americans, for Americans, and those that wish to become Americans. Many people like to call the United States a “Melting Pot”, where all come here and then become as the rest of the people in this Country are. It is so obvious that this is a thing of the past.
If we look back through the history of our Country, we will see that everyone was a foreigner at one point in time. The First Americans were the American Indians and yet they too, originated in Mongolia and moved across the Bering Straits. My Great, Great, Grandparents had Ancestors of Russian decent and this is because I was born in Alaska. Many of those in Mongolia still speak some Russian Dialects. They are also able to follow their Ancestry back to the Tower of Babel, as written in the Word of God. So there must be a single thread, that follows back to Adam and Eve, right?
Thus, we see we are originally of the same Species, Human. I am sure that everyone is willing to accept at least that much, right? We can also admit, that more took place when Adam and Eve Sinned in the Garden of Eden, than we are willing to admit. Take for example Cain and Able, My offering is better than yours and so Cain murdered Able. I am not laying any such blame here, it has never been my place, but one gift was indeed more precious to the Lord God Almighty. Obviously, someone did not consult the “Tech Manual”, the Bible, concerning Offerings to God. I am not endeavoring to be flippant here.
What I am trying to point out is that we, as humans, consistently have differing points of view on everything. Thus the majority of our problems in the here and now. We have created for ourselves a myriad of things to distinguish ourselves FROM each other, rather than TO each other. The Word of God has even told us, that because of our situation concerning SIN, we must be separate, one from the other. That way we do not partake of the Sin of others and destroy our relationship with the Lord. Of course, if everyone walked according to the Word of God, life would be very, very, different, we would be of one mind and one heart, for the Lord God. Obviously, we can say, that is not the case. Sadly!
It is obvious to each of us, in this day and time. The more education one has, the more profitable the position, the more pay, the more perks, etc.. Ultimately, it is still, just a job and nothing more. What is so unusual, is the Plane we have put everyone on, concerning what they do for a job. A Physician has a great deal of Education, therefore they are paid a great deal, and have very lofty positions according to the populace. Yet Politicians have less Education, by-in-Large than Physicians and yet they make more wages and have more lofty positions. How is that?
If you wish to verify this, try and get an appointment with your State Representative sometime, you will find that far more difficult than visiting your local Doctor. Then go to your local Doctor and sit in the reception area for at least a half an hour. Just saying ya’ll. Or even the Emergency Room. The question is, whom do we pay more to see? It is still just a job for each of us. Somewhere along the way, everyone has marked a persons job, with the worth of that person.
So then my question turns to the people on the silver screen, how is it, they are paid more (and I mean a whole lot more) than those with higher Education? Does this sound “ODD” to you? Is this just a matter of what is more important to us, or what is Truly more important? I am sure the opinion of the individual with Cancer, will differ greatly in this aspect, than the others. Let me see here, I want to Vote Out…Cancer!
Everything Hollywood produces is fiction. It’s the “What If”, rather than the “What it really is”. I have yet to see a Motion Picture of a situation from the Bible, that actually follows what the Bible says. Obviously, the Producers think the Bible is Bland, or run-of-the-mill and they must Jazz-it-up. Somewhere along the way, the real message is lost in making the story on the screen more appealing. Again, an Athlete earns millions of dollars per year, while there are people that never get three meals a day and then die of Starvation, more importantly…children.
Did God choose for this life to be this way? Or…was it us humans that chose this? I have to wonder, whom are going to be Responsible for these things being this way? Oh, I’m sorry!! That isn’t Politically Correct, to ask about accountability. Why…everyone is absolutely perfect, in every way, right? I am NOT to be seen pointing any fingers at anyone, right?
And you would be absolutely correct in that. Judgment is not up to me! It rests entirely on the Lords Shoulders, HE will judge all one day. One thing everyone wants to be sure of, don’t get caught holding the short end of the stick, right? Point is, I AM just as important as anyone else, I used to be a Sinner as well. The real difference is, my Sin is covered by the Blood of Jesus Christ. I am simply forgiven of my Sin. I still make mistakes and I still fall, yet for me, the Lord is always there to pick me up and brush me off and send me down the Straight and Narrow way again. HE gets after me, when I am wrong, because HE Loves me. It was my Sin and the Sin of everyone else that has ever lived and lives today, that sent Jesus Christ to the Cross of Calvary.
Have you ever wondered WHY this world is so backwards and dis-jointed? Why things are the way they are, because they are down-right weird to be sure. Every single one of us is fallen, we have lost our direction. We HOPE we are doing right, that we are headed in the right direction. Our Father in Heaven, is the ONLY one that is able to see the Past, the Present and the Future, therefore there is no need for HIM to HOPE anything. That being the case, I would rather place my life in HIS hands!
We have removed HIM from our schools and Prayer for anything. We have elected people that do not care about what God thinks. We chase the money, the popularity, the “Easy-Street”, the Dark alleyways, the abomination, the sick and twisted and then we wonder why there is no Peace? What’s even worse, we gather together, arm in arm, in a show of solidarity, for what? Have we not paid any attention here, all of us are fallen, skewed, Hoping for Peace. When the Originator of real Peace is in the hands of Almighty God, our Father In Heaven…whom we just pushed out of our lives.
As long as there are humans on the face of this Planet Earth, there will be wars, Famines and Pestilence, droughts, earthquakes and anything else. All in the Hope that they will learn God is in Charge and always has been. That we NEED HIM…NOT the other way around. As the Word of God shows in Revelation, humans will elect the Anti-Christ to govern the world. Duh!! Our education is skewed to Evolution, rather than accepting that God created everything. In our best efforts, we choose to remove God from everything? Is this beginning to make sense? WE are wrong! We are at Odds with God and then we think because we are “Good”, that each of us will end up in Heaven…eventually?! That is NOT what the Word of God says. If we have been so wrong all the time we have been here on earth, what makes us think, our ideas are correct and that the Word of God is in-correct? Maybe our Arrogance?
“We are poor little sheep, who have lost our way”.
Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
Romans 3:10-18 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
As the Rapture comes ever closer, we need to know the Word of God and be prepared for HIS coming. We must repent of our Sin and ask for HIS forgiveness and then walk accoring to HIS Holy Word, not ours. Remember this, once the Rapture takes place, the earth has only seven (7) years left! And the Rapture is just around the corner, Jesus Christ stands outside your door and knocks, will you open the door and let HIM in? IF you do NOT, then the Rapture will not include you and that my Friends is so important to understand.
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.
