Keep them all guessing. Feed the imagination with lies. See how they call it entertainment. Fantasy supersedes reality.
Keep them busy with “nothing“, whilst they ignore the truth of God.
Let them believe in aliens and watch men challenge restraints while they throw away the only truth there is.
Let them ignore the only truth there is. For they have chosen the way of death.
Let them believe in good works. Let them believe that man has the ultimate command upon himself, “save the world“. With that they pay no attention to the grace of God.
Is there a price to pay? It’s already being extracted. And there is no gain left for them to receive.

The process of becoming the Christian you want to be is to stop being the Christian you presently are.
Think and choose. Remember and apply. Stop simply reacting to emotion. Stop staring at circumstances.
The Spirit of Christ does not live in the flesh. He is in heaven and from heaven.
Think Eternity. Look at Him. Listen to what you see. Don’t bother to look at your failings. Since when have they delivered you any profit?
Set your mind and your soul on Christ. You will only prosper as much as you make that your life.

They called a change in wind direction “a quirk of nature”. How many times have the enemies of Israel said the same thing? Those who despise Israel’s birthright never seem to learn.
Your “quirk of nature” is the Living God.
The direction of the wind not only thwarted the kites, but also blew copious amounts of Israeli tear gas and smoke from the burning tires toward the protesters, chasing many away.

The wicked creatures crawl around in the darkness. They are not searching for release from their agony. There is none to attain. Resigned to what they do, they have no regard for what is Good.
The objects in their path are familiar enough to avoid. They move from one to another like monkeys playing in a cage. Caged in a place that has been theirs for thousands of years.
They seek only one thing, implant their perverted pleasure into the minds of Man. The essence of their work is simple, “Teach the Man to avoid God”.
Are they adept at what they do? Take a good look around.

They gave themselves to the reading of the word and to prayer. The result?
Thousands were saved in Christ. The power of God moved among the people with unprecedented strength. A Legacy was built for billions.
We have one life to live. What will be said of us when we are ushered into his holy kingdom?
“One good deed is more worth than a thousand brilliant theories. Let us not wait for large opportunities, or for a different kind of work, but do just the things we ‘find to do’ day by day. We have no other time in which to live. The past is gone; the future has not arrived; we never shall have any time but time present. Then do not wait until your experience has ripened into maturity before you attempt to serve God. Endeavour now to bring forth fruit.” (Charles Spurgeon)
Dare not just dream. Become. The thief does not steal your life. He steals your seconds.

It’s a really weird title, isn’t it. It draws a mental picture that probably shouldn’t be in our head. But think about the following.
Don’t we get kind of miffed if when we talk to someone they absolutely ignore us? And what if someone came to you like this: looking at the ground they mutter your name numerous times, appeal to you to listen to them, then repeat those two actions 20 times. At some point you just give up listening, turn away, and leave them as they are. It’s not that you despise them, you despise what they’re doing.
Do you think the Lord Jesus is different then we are about this? Effective prayer is real conversation. Ritualistic words are pretty much useless. Either he is our friend or he is just God.
