Osee ... an eye-opener
Ready Or Not
I started to write about the beauty of a Spirit-led walk of faith by looking upward and not sideways. And then a realization that todays' culture would find the message too simplistic. The fantasies of this world have captivated the hearts and minds of people today. And therefore, most people are too sophisticated for the old-time gospel message. It's a fast track to collect the pleasures of this world and have fabricated an alternative ending to life. And then again, tomorrow will take care of itself.
The master of this masquerade is cunningly disguised, a subtle nonexistent estimation or pictured as a devilish joker and therefore, not to be taken seriously. The perfect disguise in waiting ... as the mysterious swindler shapes thoughts and attitudes about receiving a counterfeit messiah and false prophet. The worldview supposition and hearsay is to convince people that nothing is "out of the ordinary." The allurement would embolden a self-reliant pseudo temperament, quasi-morality and conscience-less sway of things present and eventually an entrapment by the dark side. Already today, this sinister motive is hidden from the qualms and principles of people and societal values.
The beauty and majesty of God's creation is ever present and every day is a gift from God. This is surely the most wonderful love story "song of songs" ever told and onward calling to the hope of glory. On the other side of the coin, a soothsayer would say "the day is what we make it" and therefore our destiny is unlimited. A simple look back through history would debunk this theory as a misguided allusion. But getting back to my opening thoughts, the real subject of this blog is the beauty and fantastic opportunities that are soon to be realized in the by and bye. Are you ready to imagine the heavenly welcome mat waiting for each and everyone by accepting the testimony (the Christmas present) of God's salvation and thereby, explore eternity on the bright side.
Our solar system is a lasting testament of God's heavenly light and the salvation message is clearly written as a stellar invitation by Yeshua: to "Seek the LORD while He may be found; call to Him while He is near." And once again, "Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you." This is an open invitation and when unsure, a simple prayer for a revelatory encounter will highlight the glory of His holiness. The Christian "walk of faith" is a lifestyle and the notion of waiting "sitting on the fence" does dishearten and diminish God's blessings to the simple basics and ministry persona. A sad state of affairs and unfortunately, many Christians aren't walking in the splendour of God's name, only to rely on good intentions.
A supernal enlightenment may shatter a pre-conceived or fabricated image of God's likeness according to the worldview and twisted expectations as seen in the movie trailers. It is my personal choice to limit entertainment choices to the 50s, 60s and 70s movies and music, whereby the new-age message is quite tame and outdated compared too today's bedazzlement, but this is a tricky and controversial hot topic for another day. The wily denizens of unrighteousness that propagate an evil twist on society should realize the truism "misery seeks company" on the day of reckoning. This dastardly "doggone" quest to bring into existence ancient sorceries and entities will be the final episode "apocalypse" of their demise. An everlasting woebegone "howl" of despair awaits the cronies of sin, which includes the Jedi Order of deceit.
