Living In A Chaotic World

"The more I read the news the less enchanted I am with the human race, you can go on about climate change and saving the planet, I tell you something this planet is not worth saving!" This is a comment posted by a Daily Mail reader after reading the article in which the terrible torture and death of the Kenyan Mall hostages was reported.

He has a valid point. World violence is increasing. God, the creator of man, would have sympathised with the above comment because sadly we have been here before; in the time of Noah when there was a huge population increase. In Genesis we read how "The earth was morally corrupt before God and FILLED with violence." It get's worse; God saw that the imagination and thoughts of the human heart were evil CONTINUALLY and it grieved him in his heart (yes God has a heart) that he had ever created man!"

Sadly we are living in a world where everyone does what is right in his own eyes. The only possible outcome is total world chaos.

It is true, there are pockets in the world where life is reasonably normal, but how can 'We' living in these pockets have peace of mind and security when so much of humanity is living a nightmare.

The bad news is God is just and holy and no one will escape his righteous judgement, and He will utterly destroy those who refuse his grace and mercy. The good news is "For God so loved the world that he sent his only Son to save those who would believe and trust in him."

There are more prophecies about Jesus' second coming than his first. Jesus said when he returns it would be like it was in the days of Noah just before the flood when there was violence all over the earth.   I often find myself asking Jesus "How long before you return Lord." Things upon the earth are now so desperate. Sadly the majority of the people on the planet are failing to realise just how desperate things have become. We have tried to rule and govern without God and have shown time and time again, it just cant be done! We need him, now more than ever.

Our Father, which art in heaven, Thy will be done in earth, As it is in heaven. Deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, The power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

Come Lord Jesus Come!

Asian Hornet Heads For Britian

Often times when reading the daily news something jumps out at me. This morning the breaking news of the Asian Hornet invasion. I often find myself asking "What is the prophetic significance; what is God saying through this?" We can read throughout the Bible where God used nature to get man's attention. The Hornet was sent and used by God as a weapon against the enemies of His people (Deuteronomy 7:20). Asia is from the East and East is the preeminent direction in the Bible. The sun rises in the East, The Temple faced East and Jesus our Messiah will return from the East. The East is the source of blessing and salvation. The month September is the ninth month of the year. The Biblical Meaning of Number nine is judgment or finality. Basically, it's used when judging man and all of his works. This number has also been used to describe the perfect movement of God. Amen!

We All Make Mistakes

The best of us make mistakes but none maybe so public as the one in this picture! Most mistakes can be corrected easily, an apology to someone we've hurt, throwing away a failed dish and starting again or paying a speading fine. However some mistakes are not so easy to cover up. Hatred is a hard one to disguise, so is murder, lying, stealing and adultery. Some have been successful for many years to cover their mistakes only to find eventually they got caugh out. 
The Bible teaches that "All have fallen short of God's glory." Everyone of us has missed the mark at some time in our life. Praise God we have a loving creator who sent his Son to rescue us from our mistakes. Mistakes the Bible calls sin. Sin is the breaking of Gods Holy Law the Ten commandments. Some would saying calling sin 'a mistake' is undermining the seriousness of sin. However you look at it if your sin eventually leads you to hell then that is a grave mistake indeed. Thankfully it is not Gods will "That any should perish but that all should come to repentance."
God sent His Son to die as a common criminal to take the punishment we all deserve, and rose on the third day proving God was satisfied with His Sons sacrifice for our sin. If we repent, change our minds about sin and judgement and trust in Jesus alone to save us, God will forgive us and grant us the gift of everlasting life. Moreover, regarding our mistakes God says, “I will forgive their sins and will no longer remember their wrongs.” (Hebrews 8:12) Taking all His promises into account surely the greatest mistake anyone could make is to reject the Salvation which is only available in and through the Lord Jesus Christ. Make no mistake, repent and trust in the Saviour Today!

Escaping The Trap Of The Law

Driving through a local town this evening I saw the police van with the speed trap camera. My first thought was 'I must warn oncoming vehicles.' Some would say, "Why warn them if they're speeding they deserve to be caught?" However they do not have the heart of a evangelist. An Evangelist knows The Law and what's coming. The Evangelist wants to warn. So I flashed my lights and warned a few. Basically that's what I do everytime I preach. On judgement day everyone will be judged by the word of God and His Ten Commandments and everyone will fall short. Many will be found guilty and condemned. Jesus came to pay our fine, to take our punishment, that's how much He loves us. "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus" Romans 8:1. The guilty will be pronounced innocent purely and soundly on the basis of what Jesus has done and their response to it. Respond wisely. Repent and trust in the Saviour today.

Make Room For God

Many spaces are being filled. Spaces between houses and building plots. Vacant empolyment opportunities, gaps on supermarket shelves. However many are not finding a space in their hearts for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. There are a inumerable ammount of activities and belief systems out there all designed by the master deceiver to make you think your filled with everything you can possibly need. However when all is stripped away, your money, your house, your job, your family, your health what remains? Jesus said in Matthew 16:26 "And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?" Jesus promised his followers eternal life and the infilling of the Holy Spirit...God living in him. God fills the universe with his presence so if he's in you there wont be any room for anyone else!

Closed Mindeness

 Easter is fast approaching in which we remember when Jesus Christ layed down his life to save a lost humanity. Sadly the lost humanity are just not that interested. Jesus said the general atmosphere around his second coming would be "As in the days of Noah." People were eating, drinking and marrying, carrying on as normal whilst Noah followed Gods instructions to secure his salvation and that of his family. Suddenly Gods wrath was poured out, and the closed minds reasoned no more. Noah was prepared, all those who drowned just couldn't see their need and were destroyed. Worse than that they mocked Noah, viewing him as foolish. Scripture teaches that "Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe" 2Corinthians 4:4. Belief is the key. The simple act of believing opens the mind to the truth about us and God. The greatest battle was not World War1 or even World War2, the greatest battle being fought is the battle for the human mind. The mind must be enlightened before salvation can follow. God will not and does not bypass the human mind. Satans knows this so he bombards the lost with thoughts and images. He has his many helpers. They work in science and the media, peddling lies and half-thruths all to fuel the mockers. We do not know how many more Easters the world will enjoy or how many more opportunities there will be to enter into safety. But we can know this for sure, the door will not be shut until the very last one to be saved has walked safely through the door. Let us leave the last word to the greatest mind who ever lived, Jesus of Nazareth "I am the door; whoever enters in through me will be saved" John 10:7.

Easy Approval

Getting credit for some is not always so easy. If you've had bad debts in the past or been bankrupted life is not so straight forward. Walk down any high street and you will see the modern day pawn broker. People need money and many have to borrow it just to survive. There are a myriad of reasons why your credit application can be turned down. The number one reason is a bad credit record. Everyone as heard the phrase "Nothing in life is free." That is true except for one ...Salvation is free! If you want to be saved from the power and consequences of sin, then meet the right requirments and you will hear the word "Approved." But hang on a minute what's this about requirments I thought you said it was free. Yes it's free but you must first BELIEVE its free! Belief is a requirment.  Salvation is free but you must believe its free because God wants you to TRUST him. Trust him... but isn't that just more more requirment? Imagine a wedding ceremony with out words or feelings expressed. When we engage in something it involves some level of emotional and intelectual commitment. Its the same with salvation. To be saved you must BELIEVE what Jesus said about himself and TRUST him with your eternal security. Its a bit like putting on a parachute shortly before you jump out of a aeroplane. As the Scripture says, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame" Romans 10:11. It doesn't matter how bad your past record has been you CAN receive approval from the Son of God today. Put you trust in him, believe he came to save you and your future security is garanteed. Will you take a step of faith toward the only Saviour today?
