Burning Questions

Life is full of questions, but what questions do I truly want answered that have meaning to me. What questions if I received the answers to would change me and the way I live my life? Deep questions from within me that my very soul, the essence of who I am, cries out to understand.

Who Can I Turn To For Answers?

There is no one like JESUS. Only He can answer these question’s that used to torment my soul:

Who am I? I am a child of God; Jesus is my Lord, and my King. I was given to Jesus by God as a love gift. I am one of His sheep.

How did I get here? God said in Psalm 139 vs 13 that He knew me before I was in my Mothers womb in eternity past. God said in Romans 8 vs.29, that whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become a believer in His Son Jesus.

What am I to do here on earth? I am to live out the “Great Commission”: To make disciples of all nations, teaching people about the word of God; telling all the Good News of John 3:16.

Where am I going when I die? Because Jesus died for my sins and He was resurrected, and He is alive today; I too will live forever with Him in heaven because I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior.

“Because He lives” are the 3 small words I base my entire existence upon. They form a foundation of how I should be witnessing to those all around me.

God is looking for those that seek Him. Today there are very few people that are truly seeking Him. Throughout the Old and New Testaments only one message clearly comes through.

That there have always been and always will be the many and the few,
the lost and the found.

History is rooted in time, but the time is coming when time will be no more.

When I pray for people to witness too I ask God to bring those that are sincerely seeking Him. I am called by Christ to be able to defend my faith in this battle for the minds, hearts and souls of people. That battle usually comes when people attack my faith. I do not expect to win over people who attack my faith because their purpose is only to attack.

But by being able to defend my faith, standing in strength in front of those that attack me; those people around me listening and watching see and hear that I do not believe in myths, fairy tales or legends.

My faith is in someone real. Both His life and His Death and Resurrection are rooted in history. Explaining those documented facts is the only topic and the only point of witnessing. That is why Jesus asks you the question that echo’s throughout time…“Who do you say that I am?”

Whom Are You Seeking?

Do you remember the story of Jesus in the Garden when Judas led the soldiers to identify Jesus with a kiss of betrayal. Jesus said to the soldiers “Who are you seeking?” they said Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus said I AM He and they all including Judas fell backwards to the ground. John 18: 1-6

Jesus took the name and title implied by the words I AM….that He was and is and continues to be GOD.

The Scriptures say that every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD. That evening a multitude of soldiers received a glimpse into their future as they fell before Jesus as an involuntarily act of worship as to who He is…. The Lord of Lords, the SON of God.

You too will one day stand before HIM, not with a crowd, but by yourself.

In life He extends His hands out to you and asks you “Who do you say that I AM?” This is the most important question of life. This is the only question you need to find the answer too while you still live on the earth.

However the first question is equally important….”Whom are you SEEKING?”

Why, because if you are not SEEKING, then you will never find HIM.

Christ said when HE comes the 2nd time, in Luke Ch. 18 vs 8… “when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?”

The answer is not very many, only a Remnant, a few.

Will you be one of those with faith in HIM?

New Years Resolution 2014

New Years Resolution 2014

Our culture’s worldview is one of despair. The two markers representing our life during this short journey thru time are the date of our birth and the date of our death.

Between these two markers we walk the road of despair called life.

If you listen to our educational systems teaching about the subject of Origins you will come to understand that our lives can only be a cosmic accident. These teachings come from a “Faith-Based” system built on the theory (not fact) of evolution.

Evolution simply stated says we live lives of no meaning, and no accountability until we reach our destiny which is too die, be annihilated, buried into the dirt, chemically broken down as nutrients that go back into the ground and reunited to the food chain from which we came from. Is that your DESTINY?

This goes against everything we feel deep within us. If evolution is true then why during this life do we cry out to empty heavens, to some force we think is higher than us, for meaningfulness? Our cries go up daily for help, but to whom?

All we hear is the echo of our own hollow voices because if you believe in evolution that’s all there is…hollow word’s from hollow people.

Evolution represents the Ascent of Man to a higher plane. Have you noticed lately that man is not ascending, but descending back to his supposed animal behavior both young and old alike?

Your ultimate glory, the apex, the pinnacle of your existence as part of mankind is to go “back to the dust from which you came” into the meaningless, darkness of nothingness.

Part of the later statement sounds Biblical, doesn’t it the part about being dust?
How sad, the only joys we have between these two life markers, birth and death, is a new car, a bigger house, a better job, living out our sexual fantasy’s that cause pain to our loved ones, gaining power over others to elevate our own importance.

A wise man named Solomon once said, “Vanity, Vanity…all is Vanity.” Mankind’s beginning and ending is to develop pride to its ultimate end, vanity. Then be no more.

We live for pride, for vanity, because we crave significance. We want respect, and we want dignity. But, if we have no meaning because we are a cosmic accident then where oh where do we find an answer?

That answer can only be found in the Truth. But to recognize the Truth you must first understand the Lie. You will find the Truth in Scripture, the Bible…the Words of the True GOD. And the Bible will equip you to recognize the LIE that is coming, so you will recognize it and not place your faith in it.

So make your New Years Resolution to open the only book written where you will find YOU written on its pages. Yes you are part of the Greatest Story Ever Told that speaks of the Beginning and the Ending of TIME and the automatic rebirth of the earth, nature, and the universe for an Eternity with GOD.

Yes you too will be re-born to eternal life with GOD or eternal life without GOD. The Angels that fell from Grace have no choice but will go to the place where GOD is not for eternity.

You are fortunate because you have a choice to make. Spend time in the Word of God this year so you can answer the most important question in the Bible that came from the lips of Jesus, the Christ. You will meet HIM personally, face to face in the future. Your answer will determine where you spend eternity.

Who Do YOU Say That I AM?

Wishing you Eternal Life in the New Year
