Our Thoughts, Our Actions…Still Matter!
By Don Twobears
I am more than concerned for this our Country, our People, according to what many are trying to do in this Country’s Government. It is also very concerning to me, the lack of ‘Common Sense’, by so many in almost every direction. And what about the everyday Individual, you and me, when it comes to ‘Common Decency’ to others? Is it just me, or do you see what is happening in almost every State, with Protests and Violence? What about the shootings every where, the beatings, the mal-treatment and Deaths of children?! Do you see something strange taking place?!
What ever happened to American History classes, that teach our children, about how we got to where we are these days?! What has happened to our Patriotism and the Honor we once held for the sacrifices made by others?! What has happened to the Honor of the Lord God, in all of our people here in the USA, or the entire globe for that matter?!
Are we concerned for our young, that suffer from disease processes…that used to afflict the elderly, like Heart Disease, strokes, Kidney failure and the like. At present, there are many new Therapies and Drugs that COULD aid the infirm and sick, but they don’t because the cost is too great! The new…old folks homes…are where too many Elderly are left to die, alone and unwanted any more! Or how about the Abortions clinics, where a new life is snuffed out before they ever have a chance at life…is this Murder?! And to whom do we hold accountable for these atrocities?! Do you think, WE, the people are responsible?!
I have written about these things a number of times and today I wonder if anyone is reading their Bibles at all. As I see it, the Lord God said one thing and now days everyone is doing something else. I have mentioned many times, the “Intent of the Heart” as is written in the Holy Word of God, means what we think, before we ever do anything! The thoughts prior to action! And I can only assume, there is a great discrepancy between “Intent of the Heart” and our actions, because it is in the news everywhere, ever day, at any hour! Where is the up-roar, where is the protest now?!
2 Timothy 3:1-7 “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. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Is it any wonder, that all the problems we see all around us, are because We the People, have turned our collective backs on the Lord God?! And yet there is even more to consider! Please make sure you read and understand the next Passage of Scripture;
2 Thessalonians 2:1-2 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.”
2 Thessalonians 2:3-7 “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
“Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.”
Oh, my Friends…we are truly in these days and times…the Last Days…the End of Times! The actions in this Nation of ours, Proves beyond shadow of doubt…the soon Coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Many times, I have been sitting here at my desk, contemplating a new article, Praying for Guidance and Discernment and I wonder what I will be doing when that “Twinkling of an Eye” takes place! So I must guess many others are doing the exact same thing…then again…maybe not! By the looks of it, those thinking that same thought, would be far and few between…am I correct?! What will YOU be doing, Where will YOU be at that very second?! The “Great Delusion” is very much alive and is being worked everywhere, what do you think?!
Our children are more concerned about their time, playing Fortnite, than sitting with their Mom and Dad, then again how many Moms and Dads are still together for that?! Oh yeah, lest we forget, how many are still chasing that almighty American Dollar, than being concerned about their Children?! I am not against people going to work to earn a living! Except when that work is of greater concern to them than their Families! The Holy Word of God, is about Families, from Genesis to Revelation! The entire Word of God is about Family, Gods Family!
So as we watch the daily news, we see where Parents beat, torture and kill their own children?! Yet they think they are up-standing people of the community?! They are the first to talk about “Thier Rights” and what about abortions…Murder of an Innocent child?! And again, there is talk of “Rights”?! I have stated it before and I will continue to state…the Intent of our Hearts! Where do these “Thoughts” come from?! It isn’t in the Holy Word of God…that is for sure!
Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Psalms 51:2-5 “Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest. Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.”
Wow! That is some serious stuff right there, do you think?! Straight out of the Holy Word of God and to think, this applies to each of us! First, we think it (Intent of the Heart) and then we do it (Action on the thought!). And so now we look around ourselves and wonder…Why are these things taking place?!
The Great Delusion is at work! Right now…everywhere!
And still the Holy Spirit continues to work, continues to show us…our need for Jesus Christ!
Problem is my Friends, in the “Twinkling of an eye”, the people of the Lord and the Holy Spirit…will be gone from this earth! Then what?! What will happen next?! As a child of God, one of the people going to be with the Lord in the Rapture…I am glad to know…I will be gone from here!
Matthew 7:13-15 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
All of a sudden, that last Passage of Scripture…literally jumps off the page!
I lay in the capable and loving hands of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…safe and secure…from all that is evil and Harmful! I read my Bible and Believe everything in it! There is no other God before me…Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior!
That thought of the “Zombies, shuffling along that Highway to destruction”, is more than I am able to concieve in my mind! Up to 80 years or so, is such a short time indeed, compared to Eternity! Yet the thought of an Eternity in Hell and then the lake of Fire… That’s just a bit more than I want to try and think about, much less to know that is where I would go…without Jesus Christ! A split second…a Twinkling of an eye…GONE! The Rapture! Where is YOUR Home?! Heaven? Or Hell?!
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.”
