I’ve seen it all over “WWJD.” Its on arm bands, book covers and coffee mugs. But what does it mean? What WOULD Jesus do? I assume that means in any given situation we are to think about what Jesus Christ did while here on Earth and then we are supposed to do the same. That would be good, except people don’t know what Jesus would do because 1) They don’t know enough of the Bible to know what Jesus would do and 2) Even if they did read the Bible they would not understand why Jesus did what He did when He did it. So I will show you what Jesus would do so that you, too, can do what Jesus did.
How many many Christians miss the importance of Pentecost. This is because the organized churches don’t teach the people. Could it be that they don’t know the importance of Pentecost? Could it be they don’t understand the importance of the day of Pentecost. Or is it that the leadership has not wanted to teach it because of fear, fear of what others might say or fear that the people would really believe it. Whatever the reason, it is a travesty that the people are so lost.
In today’s world of immediate gratification, TV, Ipods, etc. we individually and collectively have forgotten a very important truth. That truth is that of -The Pleasure of Your Company. Fortunately, it is a truth that once you understand it you can take immediate advantage of it because it has been there all along.
Over the years I have seen many people that not only wanted wealth they forsook many other things to obtain financial wealth. In their pursuit of these riches they have forsaken other parts of their lives such as health, family, friends, God. Yet, when they get the financial wealth that they have sought they find themselves unhappy, unfulfilled and lonely. To understand what true wealth is then you must first define it. People mistakenly think that wealth is money. If you think that then you are wrong. Money is only a part of wealth. True wealth is being fulfilled and living a long and healthy life.
In a large and expensive looking compound in Texas hundreds of people were arrested for POLYGAMY. Mothers are separated from their children and families are torn apart.
I could understand this IF…
The anchor of Christianity is the return of Jesus Christ for His Church. It is our hope. Don’t let anyone dissuade you from that hope.
Hebrews 4: 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
I guess it is time that I should write an article responding to current events. But I don’t want to. I don’t like to. I’ll force myself to but I really don’t want to. Let me see, I could comment on the transgender guy that thinks he/she/it is pregnant or the absolute insanity of our government leaders by spending $2 Billion (yes I still capitalize it out of respect) dollars in amounts mostly around $600 dollars to individuals to jump start the economy. How about Obama’s spiritual leadership that hates white people? I could comment on the insanity of the Federal Reserve and how the world is playing cat and mouse with an economic collapse that will make 1929 look like kids stuff. Red China is back in the news. They are trying to tidy up before the Olympics by killing Buddhist monks and nuns so that the government and their “new free society” looks better than the rest of the world. I didn’t want to I would rather teach about Christ and the goodness of God. I started writing this not wanting to comment wanting to just “turn my eyes upon Jesus” but now that I started I am so P*##ed off that you are going to have to put up with me since I have a lot of computer ink and computer paper!
The United States has been haled as the policeman of the world. We have thought ourselves to be saviors to the world. We are the ones to bring democracy to all nations. We have been the bastion for freedom and free expression. We have been expanding this ideal around the world over the past fifty years. But now we are on the verge of collapse. So, who is going to step in and save us? NO one! There is no one left. They have all gone after their own way AND we have become despised in the eyes of the world.
Our daughter came home from college this semester to stay. She has changed her major and will start at a local college in the fall. That is OK with me but what made her change her mind and leave the University that she was at I don’t know. She hasn’t told me and to date I haven’t asked. I figured she would tell me in due time. However, one of things that I have heard is that she didn’t want to be around the party scene anymore. She did tell me that she realized this when a friend from high school showed up for a weekend visit with two BIG bottles of vodka and wanted to know where the parties were at. You see, she just wasn’t raised that way. You may think that is prudish or weird or so not with it. But I know something that you don’t know or you don’t want to admit. We are not our own!
