Ditch . . . The Same Ol' Thing!

I don't really know if this is a difficult thing to track with or not out there . . . but I am convicted that this is the way to be looking at things right now.  The horrors of the secular-progressive God-hating culture now in full deconstruct/self-destruct mode are highly disturbing and agitating to watch unfold.  The obvious propaganda relentless vying to wrest away the last of our civil freedoms, including the right to free speech and self defense . . . .

The blatant and malicious blasphemies against God's Word in popular music, television and film . . . .

The wolves in the pulpits devouring would-be sheep and the churches conforming to the world accepting with open arms those who have no real interest in truth while shunning and ostracizing the real sheep of God . . . .

The infiltration of government by anti-Christ religion, while it persecutes Christians at increasingly rapid pace worldwide . . . .

All of these present evils . . . are NOTHING--are a speck of inconvenience . . . compared to the final judgment that awaits those who deny the sacrifice of the Lamb of God--who crucify Jesus afresh by their refusal to accept His gift, His grace . . . .

This world will come and go; trying to "fix it" . . . "make it a better place" . . . is only making it worse.  And then it will be destroyed.  But the SOULS of those living in it RIGHT NOW . . . will not just come and go.  They are eternal and will receive either glory or damnation.  THIS is the main thing to be looking at and worrying over! 

The Bible says that the saved have a mansion waiting for them--reserved for them in Heaven.  Likewise, on the other hand, those who reject Christ RIGHT NOW have a place reserved specifically for them in Hell.  Their conviction has already happened--those not saved.  Judgment will just be a time of executing the decision.  How terrifying!  A place reserved ALREADY in Hell for those that reject, refuse, deny . . . the Lord and what He suffered on their behalf.  Such brazen selfishness and rebellion . . . will not go unrewarded.  Justice must be perfectly met, otherwise there is not just and holy God and Judge.

This world has always been a den of iniquity, confusion, madness and violent revolt, since the fall.  It has always been tempting to stare at it, opine, weight-in, try to "fix", engage, to be imbued in . . . . Nothing new under the sun--same old issues.  Greed, lust, covetousness, adultery, power-seeking, vanity, cold-heartedness, idolatry and on and on.  Same old thing . . . . The only way to brake free from its clutches and experience something--the ONE THING new and ever fresh--the pure, renewing waters that flow from the eternal divine . . . is to surrender, submit, die on the cross with Jesus, all the way.  THEN, and only then, does real life begin!  Until then, only death masquerading as life--zombies, walking dead, living dead . . . muttering corpses stumbling about shouting vain insults and calumnies to and empty, gray sky . . . .

Indeed, this life . . . is a vapor, gone in a flash . . . all the nonsense and madness.  But the SOUL--it goes on . . . . In one place or the other.  THAT is the news of the day!  That is the issue to be watched and addressed.  THAT is the amendment to take place, to establish!  The rest of this mayhem is dust in the wind--a lot of sound and fury signifying . . . not much more than tinkling vanity . . . .

Oh that I could shake awake the sleeping fools (such as I have once been, admittedly!) to alert them to their dire condition . . . and point them to that hour glass where the sand is quickly running out!

Depart, I would say, the same old thing!  Get to the only one and true NEW thing, which is a Person, which is SALVATION and life eternal . . . in glory . . . with Almighty God!
