The Temple

How the relentless wind blows; chilling the bones and securing the approaching season’s home.

Plowing the earth for snow’s foundation. The blinding white temple will be built, regardless man’s desire for Spring.

The Gospel blows upon the earth, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful in all its Holy intent; chilling all souls and preparing for the approaching season of eternity.

The plow rips the ground. The foundation of Lovely is established. The blinding white temple will be built, regardless Man’s desire for Spring.

The reason for turmoil is exposed. Who is wise? Who prepares for Winter?

Man’s Futile Judgments

There are many who do not know. They have not been able to consider: That the wrath of God is not at all like the wrath of a man.

Man’s wrath, in my mind, is like the senseless blood thirst of a pack of dogs against a helpless prey. Man perceives some offense, in varying degrees of severity. He lashes out with some makeshift judgment. As if he can rid eternity of this perceived offense. “I will destroy you until even God agrees you never lived.”

Sad upon sad, that Man attributes this vile sense of equity to the wrath of God.

I mean no harm to anyone by bringing this up. But I mean to bring glory to The Righteous Living God in Christ. I mean to open the eyes of my brothers of flesh.

Man is born in futility. All man’s doings are nothing more than futility. His judgments are shortsighted, his desire for peace – mired in a tar pit. If he kills a man, he presumes to have simply ended and irritating matter. Perceived righteous judgment turned violent.

But consider the wisdom of God’s wrath, vengeance, “striking out” (if you will). If He does away with a man’s life here on earth where does the soul of that man go? Doesn’t it go to the One who just struck him with death. Doesn’t it go to He who is Love? Man is only striving to still the waters. God is forever trying to impart Life.

There so much more to say about this. But what value are my words to anyone? Wouldn’t it be vastly better for you to go to the One from whom I have received this understanding? He can explain in the blink of an eye what it would take me four years to unravel in the words of Man.

But understand this, nothing God does finds its beginning in futility. It is all for the purpose of Love and Life.

It used to be that if men found someone ranting insanely in panic, they would slap them in the face to wake them up. (today, that’s not PC.). That’s what is happening as the world crashes in on man’s version of prosperity and peace. It’s a wake up call with endless, boundless, intent for love.

There is eternal destruction, yes. But the offer on the table before you is Life. His name is Jesus.

Sober minded

Fires, pestilence, disease, floods, earthquakes, storms, Financial uncertainty, and all those bad things. They leave us quite unsettled don’t they.

In the midst of our unsettled minds, do we realize that it is our sin that has unsettled The peace of eternity?

Even so, many people still blame God for all their trouble. Truth is what it is.

A Letter to My Brothers of Flesh

Dear Man:

You sigh with deep concern about what you see around you.  Your nerves are constantly tense because of what you perceive coming upon the entire world.  I am one of you, and I have seen it coming for quite a while.  I have a message for you that you might not have allowed yourself to realize.

Listen to the noise in the world now.  Watch as men frantically strive to right the ship of humanity.  It lists precariously to port.  Yet, instead of removing the excess cargo men keep adding to it.  In their lazy approach they have not evened the load within the ship.  And the lazy have drawn up their chairs on the port side of the deck to watch the commotion.

We are about to undergo a very deep trouble.  Finances will collapse around our ears.  Poverty will strike the richest among us.  Drought, disease, war, earthquakes, storms, and intemperate climates will embrace our waking from sweat laden beds.  Violence will become the norm.  And death will become desired by millions.

From centuries past man has thought he can create his own world.  And we are reaping the result of their foolish and greedy ambitions.  While we should be turning from the very building blocks of sin that has caused the present problems, we are doubling down on their ambitious greedy ways.

I am one of you.  I have no right nor need to accuse you of anything.  I will suffer along side my brothers of flesh.  But this is the message:  “There is no remedy for what is about to happen.”

I desire you peace.  But not the peace of man.  I desire you that certain peace of Jesus that soothes the nerves, heart, mind, and soul, despite the conditions around you.  This is what I desire for all men.  Just as my Father in Heaven has desired it for all men through out every age.  But now we must endure the results of godless ambition.

Come share with God’s people in the eternal life after this place of testing.  Enter in.  Allow God to prune your greedy heart until greed is just an unwelcome nightmare in your past.  Get clean now, despite the circumstances that are unfolding before our very eyes.  Only those whom God teaches to become like His Son will enter into eternity free of condemnation.  Beware!  It is not religion God is looking for.  It is a transformed life He rightfully demands.

By His Grace.
