SILLY & SERIOUS
YOU NEED JESUS - Never forget that.
Go to Christian Book Com Home Page and find important Christian books for your nourishment:
ARE YOU AND YOUR ATTITUDE TURNING HEADS OR STOMACHS?
We sure didn't need to start with that.......But think about it.
. Feeling is the voice of the body.
. Reason is the voice of the mind.
. Conscience is the voice of the spirit.
NOW, THIS IS A SOLID FACT:
You cannot kiss your own cheek in the mirror.
Go ahead, try it----I told you so.
THIS TOO: You have never seen your own face.
Others have seen your face. You have seen reflections of your face in a mirror. You have seen photographs of your face. But you have never seen your own face.
One day will we see more-will we see our whole self as we really are?
1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Look what we will one day see and one day be:
1 John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
Psalm 46:1-2 God is our refuge and strength, a
very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore
will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be
carried into the midst of the sea; A VERY PRESENT HELP!!!
How many dollar bills can you place end to end between here and the moon? Look at ONE of them staring at the EDGE. That's how close Jesus is to you.
Look at that thin edge. That is the space between you and the One Who said He would stick closer than a brother -- Jesus.
"When it comes time to die, make sure that is all you need to do."
What I am saying is: be ready for in such a day as ye know not the Son of man cometh. SURPRISE. Be prepared ahead of time - everything right between you and the Savior. Don't be lacking in something you need to do to be ready. You could easily be caught off guard. SURPRISE!!!
NOW THIS IS A VERY ODD ONE - BUT THINK ABOUT IT:
If one is born again & serving Jesus, walking with Him, but you don't believe in the rapture or you only believe in post trib rapture or you believe that Christians will finally form a utopia here (Dominionism belief), will God honor your belief & only rapture those who plan to go? Not saying that unbelief in any certain doctrine or opinion will keep any born again Christian from spending eternity with Mighty God- not at all.
Luke 12:37 Blessed are those servants,
whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he
shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and
Will those who are watching receive their wishes while others destined to wait?
These are my thoughts on this:
--Israel wanted a king like the other (heathen) nations. God knew that it was not His
best for them but He gave them their desire. You know the rest of the story.
--Israel wanted MANNA - & then meat (quail) & God gave it to them. They became sick
of it and complained but God kept honoring their desire.
POST TRIBBERS want a post tribulation rapture.
. Will God honor that request even if there is a pre trib rapture?
. Will even some born again Christians miss a pre trib rapture because they are
. The Scripture says that Jesus is coming for those who are watching, who look & long
long for His coming.
NOTE AGAIN: Pre trib, post trib, mid trib - what ever your belief, if you are born again, washed in the Blood Of Jesus you all will still be with Jesus finally.
BUT THIS ODD QUESTION IS SOMETHING TO CONSIDER.
