Discerning the Times: Easy to Fail

How many times have I not seen that key in Scripture; the “fear of the LORD”? Here it is again. Fear the LORD. Could it be any plainer? We know that children often love their parents and are loved by those parents. However, there is an element of fear in that relationship that often works to keep children from being rebellious or recalcitrant. As I’ve noted before, it is a fear based on a bit of self-preservation for not wanting to come under a parent’s disciplinary action. As children grow into adults, this often refines itself so that adult children fear causing their parents grief or sadness.

Are We There?

Over the past week or so, I’ve pretty much stopped going to social networks. It’s always the same repeatedly. I’d rather ignore what’s there and just concentrate on what God is doing. If I am learning to fear Him, then I must be willing to let go of those things of this world that keep me bound to frustration, worry and concern.

I honestly believe that as we separate from the Babylon system, we will be honoring Him and what we do in secret will be rewarded openly and that includes a greater awareness of Him and His work in and through us.

Will you join me in praying for each other that we will learn to offer Him our sacrifice of fear that leads to obedience?

Discerning the Times: CV-19, Robots and More!

I want to end this on a solid up note. A man in China suffered from what is known as ankylosing spondylitis, a condition where inflammatory arthritis affects the spine and large joints. Ultimately, this means that a person’s bones are fused together. In this case, the young man’s body folded in half. He spent the last 28 years in a folded position. I realize this is not the “up” part of the story. The actual “up” part is what doctors were able to do for the man after four grueling surgeries that could’ve resulted in the man’s death in each case.

Manifold Blessings

Thinking back over this weekend, I recall how I felt so tremendously blessed while at the same time felt a sense of loss for all the missed opportunities over the past year. The Lord has graciously blessed us with one another. Human beings were not meant to live in isolation, separate from each other while living in proximity to one another. The fact that fear is the major building block to achieve this throughout global society should tell us a great deal.

News and Notes Update: February 1, 2021

Understand please that when I say the PreTrib Rapture, I am talking about the Lord taking His Church/Body to be with Him prior to the pouring out of His WRATH. The Bible says “day of the Lord” is the start of God pouring out His wrath onto humanity and this earth. It is not a particular “day” but a period of time; the seven year Tribulation period. The entirety of that seven years is the pouring out of God’s wrath and note, all events of the Tribulation are directed by God from His throne room as evidenced by the fact that the apostle John is called up to heaven to begin viewing those events from that vantage point (Rev 4).

So, while the Church is fully exempt from all aspects of God’s wrath, we are not exempt from tribulation (small “t”) and persecution in this life. In fact, we are promised tribulation (Matthew 10:16-42; John 15:20; 2 Timothy 3:12; see also Revelation 2:10). Persecution is promised. If you are not at all being persecuted for being a Christian, maybe your circle of friends is too small. Maybe you’re not being an effective witness for Christ. I’m not trying to make you feel guilty. I’m simply noting that you may wish to take a look at things. Are you afraid to stand up for Jesus? Are you unwilling to speak out against the things that society has said we cannot be “negative” about? I’m not saying to go looking for persecution. I’m simply saying be prepared for the fact that if you’re not suffering for it now, it may well be on the way.

Physical Health Does Make a Difference

In this day and age, it is so important that we are aware of our own health, but so many people seem not to notice at all. They don’t exercise even moderately. They eat anything put in front of them, trusting that it’s “healthy.” They aren’t concerned about any supplementation that might help them gain/keep their health. In short, without even thinking, they eat processed foods because they believe that those foods are “safe” and FDA approved. Problem is that there are so many preservatives and other things added to those processed foods because they need to have a long shelf life. If they didn’t, those foods would be a great deal more expensive because they wouldn’t last long and constantly need replacing.

Nothing Can Stop What’s Coming?

I do not know what the outcome of this election will be. I do know that it will be what God allows to happen. That is simply truth as we understand from Scripture. If Trump is not re-elected and Biden does officially claim the win, then that is nothing short of God’s will. Can we say that it is not? How can God not be in control? How could that even possibly occur? It cannot.

Psalm 37: Do Not Fret

A green herb refers to a healthy, growing herb, one that is useful for seasoning food. My wife has several potted herb plants on our front porch. Every once in a while, as she’s cooking, she’ll go out front with her cooking scissors and cut off a small section of one of the herbs, which she then adds to the dish she’s making.

Back in the Saddle with Problems Ahead!

Beyond this, many businesses, due to the draconian rules regarding CV-19, are continuing to place a great deal of stress on owners and employees. One place we ate at in Tucumcari, NM has been there since the 1960s and is on the original Route 66. Because of the rules in place, no restaurant in NM can have inside dining. All dining is either outside or pick-up and go. This is causing tremendous anxiety for people and in a town like Tucumcari, which already dealt with the stress of Route 66 being decommissioned years ago, it’s worse now because of the rules.

Where is CV-19 Potentially Leading Us?

The lockdown is being promoted by government health bureaucrats who are trying to condition individuals to accept mandatory vaccinations with nanochips and immunity-tracking cards. People have shown that they will readily accept the loss of their constitutional rights and liberties in the vain hope that the government will make them safe and secure from disease and death. How foolish!
