To be flimflammed, swindled, and bamboozled by a false religion I think is one of the most painful experiences one can go through. This especially hurts when you are sincerely seeking the truth. The blow can take years to recover from. Some folks never do recover. The anger this produces must be dealt with God’s way if we’re to have any future joy in life, or a life period.
Now that God has revealed His son Jesus Christ to me there’s a new trick being played these days. And I can’t blame a false religion for that. God heard us when we called out to Him and showed us that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY, PERIOD! (John 14:6) Jesus’ teachings are plain: Forgiveness, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:43-48), treat others the way you want to be treated, love the Lord with your whole heart, whole mind, whole soul, whole strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. (Mark 12: 28-31) Now if I stand before the Lord on Judgment Day and He says to me, “I never knew you,” it would mean I simply chose not to follow Jesus’ teachings.
The Devil is working overtime to get you and I to do just that (not follow Jesus’ teachings). Hence, all the divisive issues that we face today. They are designed to look bigger than they really are. When the truth is none of it really matters.
Don’t fall into the trap of focusing on and fighting puny battles here on earth when there is a larger war going on for your soul.🤔
SWIMMING AGAINST THE CURRENT
Following Jesus is challenging. It goes against every aspect of human nature. (Galatians 5:17) But who wants human nature? Look at what it causes: wars, murders, conflicts, misery and pain. I prefer the pain of running after Jesus, falling down, skinning my knees up, then getting back up again. It hurts sometimes when you see how much you are not like Jesus. But I believe Him when He says His blood covers our sins.😊 (1 John 1:7) With His help we can keep striving towards the goal of being Christlike in this world. We must continue to swim against the current. We must continue to go against the zeitgeist of this world. The popular culture or, “Cult,” of this world is always antichrist. We cannot give in. God will give us the strength to do what is impossible on our own.😊
You see, none of these things actually matters. What do I mean? When looking at life through the eyes of Jesus Christ it doesn’t matter when someone defrauds you; not to the point of becoming so angry about it that you throw away eternal life.🤔 It doesn’t matter whether they hate you because you’re black or because you’re white; not to the point of throwing your life away because you’re so upset about it. It doesn’t matter that the boss on the job doesn’t like you, that girls don’t like you, that guys don’t like you, etcetera. NONE OF THESE THINGS MATTERS! All that matters is GOD LOVES YOU AND ME!!!😊 We have found favor with The Most High, The Lord Of Lords, And King Of Kings!!!!!!!👑 Jesus is His name!😊
Guys the end is closer than all of us think. Don’t fall into the trap of focusing on and fighting puny battles here on earth when there is a larger war going on for your soul.🤔 (1 Peter 2:11) Being found in the right spiritual state with Jesus is all that matters. The issues that the world is fighting over presently and even those that crop up in our daily lives are distractions. They’re tricks of the wicked one. If I can get you to focus your attention over here you won’t see what I’m doing over there, get it? It’s sleight of hand; it’s magic. The Devil wants you and me to be so bogged down with the cares of this life that we lose out on eternal life just like He did. Fight in the power of the Holy Spirit not to let that happen. (Ephesians 6:10-11) And if we’ve already been sidetracked all we have to do is tell God we’re sorry and repent. It’s just that simple.😊 Our Father promises to forgive our sin. (1 John 1:7-10)
None of this world’s issues and stuff really matters! It’s all about to be over with soon.
