WHY THE BIBLE
Since the inception of this blog it has been my desire and goal to give quality information that will benefit the Christian and those seeking answers in their lives. It has been tempting for me to point fingers at the elected officials and corporate big wigs that either don’t have a clue as to what is going on or don’t care as long as they can fleece another dollar out of the good people of the U.S.A.. But that doesn’t help people
WHY THE BIBLE
Since the inception of this blog it has been my desire and goal to give quality information that will benefit the Christian and those seeking answers in their lives. It has been tempting for me to point fingers at the elected officials and corporate big wigs that either don’t have a clue as to what is going on or don’t care as long as they can fleece another dollar out of the good people of the U.S.A.. But that doesn’t help people. As a matter of fact you can get multiple opinions from talk show hosts and television commentators as to how bad things are and how bad they are going to get and who is to blame but that doesn’t put food on the table or comfort a weary soul. There are other carnival criers with snake oil potions and amulets that will tell you that by buying their stories and products everything will be alright. These sharletons are the ones that dole out witchcraft stories or stand in the pulpit and proclaim their greatness rather than the greatness of God and the truth of His Word, the Bible.
So, rather than join the forces of finger pointers or sharletons I have instead chosen to proclaim God’s love for people and how to return to God, how to pray to God, how to be found of God, and how to get the deliverance that you need in your life.
The idols that we, as a nation, have set up in our hearts have blinded us from the reality of what life is all about. Our culture and the information that it oozes says that we don’t need God because we have plenty of goods and food and electronic devices and other distractions that we don’t need God. We as a collective are starting to see the cracks in that kind of thinking. The reason that is is that we have spent all of the inheritance that our fathers and forefathers had left us and spent all of our children’s and grandchildren’s inheritance and future. We have spent it to continue on a drunken orgy of excess and arrogance. It reminds me of the words from Jeremiah “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” We aren’t saved and for many of us we do not know how we will find work or eat. Life as we knew it is over. What we need to do know is to forget what is past and start building a future that will last and there is only one way to do that; by building it on the truth of God’s Word. I leave you with the story that many call the parable of the prodigal son. In the story you will see that both sons were prodigal and the story is about a loving and forgiving father, one who watched continuously for a son to return so that he might bless him once again.
America is much like that son and the circumstances that we find ourselves in are much like those of that son. BUT, as we turn to God He see us afar off much like that father and He will greet us and cloth us and feed us.
Luke 15: 11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.
26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28 And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and entreated him.
29 And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30 But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
God is always watching and waiting for His sons and daughters to turn to Him to feed them to protect them and to show Himself strong on their behalf.
II Chronicles 16: 9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
There is nothing that will comfort the heart of a man or woman, there is nothing that will bring peace, there is nothing that will bring deliverance like an understanding of God’s wonderful matchless Word.
