The BIGGER picture


1 Corinthians 2:10

King James Version

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: 

for the Spirit searcheth all things, 

yea, the deep things of God.

It was a very dangerous world I used to live in.

Only because I had been ignorant for a long time.

When you don't know GOD's laws, you are ignorant.

And that puts you in great danger -- subject to the ways of the world.

Once GOD makes you born again, ah, then, you become aware.

GOD gives us His SPIRIT to guide us.

Teaching us the ways of JESUS.

It's the only way we can survive in this world.

Don't expect the world to speak truth.

It doesn't have the capability to do so.

It has a different agenda.

It's wired differently.

Serving its own purpose.

JESUS spoke of it:

Luke 16:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.

The apostles spoke of it:

2 Corinthians 4:4

King James Version

4 In whom the god of this world 

hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, 

lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, 

who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

James 4:4

King James Version

4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, 

know ye not that the friendship of the world

 is enmity with God? 

whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world 

is the enemy of God.

The Bible gives us enough warning.

But how many listen?

How many care to know?

All my blogs, and posts, warn us all the time.

I have Scripture to back up my findings.

Scripture is the only book I live by.

I trust is completely.

For it is the WORD of GOD.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, 

and is profitable for doctrine, 

for reproof, 

for correction, 

for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, 

thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

There is no other reference to live by.

Scripture contains GOD's TRUTH.

Which happen to be the teachings of JESUS.

Who only lived to obey GOD's WILL.

If there's one tough lesson, that's really it.

To know GOD's WILL, and to FOLLOW it.

Only because people would rather do their thing.

When, all along, GOD's WILL is there to guide us.

In every aspect of JESUS' life, He showed us what it was.

And how we may obey, with joy, gladness, and focus.

Obedience to GOD is the only thing to do.

The world will teach you the opposite.

To defy GOD's WILL.

And that's where problems begin.

In direct defiance of GOD's commands.

The world will keep doing what it does:

Matthew 24:37-38

King James Version

37 But as the days of Noah were, 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood 

they were eating and drinking, 

marrying and giving in marriage, 

until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

Until such time GOD decides, "ENOUGH, is ENOUGH!"

And sends His Son for the Rapture.

Matthew 24:39-42

King James Version

39 And knew not until the flood came, 

and took them all away; 

so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then shall two be in the field; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; 

the one shall be taken, and the other left.

42 Watch therefore: for ye know not 

what hour your Lord doth come.

Every day we're alive, is a chance to get right with GOD.

Every day we're alive, is a chance to be born again.

Every day we're alive, is a chance to know GOD's laws.

Every day we're alive, is a chance to be saved.

Every day we're alive, is a chance to repent.

Each day is PURE grace.

Ephesians 2:8-9

King James Version

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; 

and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

But for the LOVE of the LORD, we'd all perish.

2 Peter 3:8-10

King James Version

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, 

that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, 

and a thousand years as one day.

9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, 

as some men count slackness; 

but is longsuffering to us-ward, 

not willing that any should perish, 

but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord 

will come as a thief in the night; 

in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, 

and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, 

the earth also and the works that are therein 

shall be burned up.

Let us not be complacent.

Let us not be proud.

Let us not be foolish.

Let us seek GOD.

While we still can.
