“Humanity’s Disease and God’s Cure” Note by me.

“Humanity’s Disease and God’s Cure” Note by me.

Humanity’s millenia of killings and murders are symptoms of a sickness that afflicts us all – sin.
Religious or not, afflicted by sin they’ll be and the further from God they are, the more selfish and less restrained they’ll be in their thinking and behavior, and when self is god then misery is left in the wake of all these little phony gods who are not gods at all but are slaves to sin, diseased lost souls who need the remedy, the cure for their terrible illness, and the remedy, the cure, the only solution is Jesus Christ.

The longer people live in denial of this truth and reject this sole solution, the more miserable they’ll be and their attempts at utopia will be pathetic failures, a hell on earth instead of the paradise they thought they could have without God.

That’s reality. No God means no peace; no Christ means no salvation. Pretending sin’s not our worst disease will not make it go away, it’ll just worsen its effects on us, if not in the short run then surely in the long run. Embracing God’s solution, accepting and applying His cure of salvation through faith in Christ is the beginning of spiritual life, true life, the beginning of a better reality and a wonderful destiny that God Himself promises and assures us will be ours in Christ.

That we are all ill with sin, that we don’t have the cure, that we can’t save ourselves, that we can’t enter God’s presence by own efforts, that’s reality, that’s the point of God Incarnate coming into the world, to do what we can never do, to accomplish what we can’t, for Him to be just and yet be able to justify the sinners, that’s the good news, the Gospel.

Christ died for us while we were yet sinners, not because we’re decent people who’ve made mistakes but because we’re sinners deserving death, the wages of our sins, we’re deserving of God’s wrath but by His grace and in His love He made a way of release, escape from wrath, a way to be reconciled to God the Father, a way to be made spiritually alive and accepted in Christ, on Christ’s merit, on His righteousness, not anything good in us but all the good that’s in Him.
We’d be the worst fools to reject God’s offer of salvation and new life in Christ.

“Don’t be ignorant of the enemy, and don’t be ignorant of God’s power” written by me.

“Don’t be ignorant of the enemy, and don’t be ignorant of God’s power” written by me.

–Note: This note was actually originally a comment I made on someone’s post in a group I’m part of in Facebook but I think it’s worth sharing here, for your benefit, possible commenting upon or correcting of, but most importantly may these words bring glory to God and speak truth.–

While we can’t and shouldn’t say that we only sin because the devil makes us do it, we must realize that the devil does tempt and trick and corrupt people and preys on their weaknesses to achieve his vile purposes but the fact that we fall for these tricks and sin as a result of being deceived by the devil does not make us innocent, we are still culpable, accountable for our actions, responsible for keeping our mental, physical and spiritual defenses up and be on guard against the enemy’s many evil tools and methods and attack tactics and tricks.

We must ever be awake and aware of the enemy and his strategies and methods and be on guard lest we become easy prey for his attacks and lies.

We must ever rely on God to guard us, help us, lead us, guide us, always, in all things, for we cannot stand against the enemy and hope to win alone, without God being our victory we shall have no victory.

We must depend upon God and trust Him and surrender to Him and know that without Him we can do nothing, we can’t win a battle much less a war against the enemy of our souls, against temptations, against sins, against all forms and servants of evil.

Let us not be naive, ignorant of the enemy and his ways and strength, nor take lightly the enemy as if he is no threat or problem to us, for he surely is and to underestimate him and his power is foolish; that’s why we must ever lean upon the Lord and His power and strength and not our own understanding of this or that.

Wisdom doesn’t begin with us, and the victory doesn’t come by us nor belong to us, and the glory does not go or belong to us. Wisdom begins with the fear of the Lord; victory comes by and from and belongs to the Lord; and the glory must all go and belong to God, always.

Know your enemy, soldiers of Christ, and before that know and love and trust the Lord who alone can save you and bring you victory in this life, in the battles you’ll face, in the struggles small and great. Ever trust the Lord, ever love Him, ever obey Him, ever glorify Him!

“False Gods Do Not Save”

“False Gods Do Not Save”

In this world, much evil plagues and lies float like clouds above,
Indifference infects, fear paralyzes, ours becomes a cold love.
Where is freedom found? Is liberation possible? Someone answer,
Living God help now us in this world of confusion and sin the cancer.

I spit upon all the filthy and worthless gods in this world,
Come bring your best to stand against the eternal Lord
None of them shall escape, none shall beat any odds,
The divine conflagration will consume all false gods.

Answer, who’s going to bring freedom to the enslaved?
In the darkness of unbelief and idolatry, a path paved
With a deceived mind and sincerity not equaling truth
The loss will be bitter, the end is sure, face the proof.

Mutter another prayer to your deaf gods in the dark,
The realization of your folly shall soon be your mark,
Like a blind man groping in darkness for some food,
You the idolater wasted time instead of doing good.

You are spitting hatred and intolerance again, I see,
Another deceived tool of the devil thinking self free
But know that your end shall be a most unhappy one,
You will lose your life, lose it all, nothing will be won.

Gods will not win against the living and true God,
They’ll all fall like nothing, those worthless idols,
And with them all the opposition foolish enough
To reject God and make themselves Him enemy.
