Short Little Rebel
In the beginning was God. That’s it. We are here because He was, is and always will be. He created Time, matter and space and thus, is not created himself. All human events are divinely inspired in order to accomplish the dearest wishes of our God. And what is this wish? To create heavenly children. WE are the point of this existence. And all that happens upon this earth is geared toward the development of mankind to be with God forever. Note Romans 8:
19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that[a] the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
Once God is satisfied, he plans on rolling everything we now see into a big ball and throwing it into his celestial garbage can. There will be a new beginning- and it will be wondrous to behold. Christ will be our ruling king forever and we will serve him with joy and happiness. Sin and satan will have served their purpose and they will be no more. We will stand gloriously with God. Who knows what our jobs will be then? Jesus told us that we will be trusted with much at that time. In any case, I write this blog in order to give convincing evidence that we are nearing the end of God’s plan. There are several ways I intend to do that:
1) By showing a change in myself over the years. If God is real and I obey him with my full heart, mind and soul, then it should logically follow that I become a better person. If I become a worse person or stay the same, I would argue that God doesn’t exist- or that Christianity is not worth pursuing. For that reason alone, I vow to pursue this blog with honesty. I will not delete my articles or comments that make me look ‘bad’. I leave them up to hopefully show my growth over time.
2) By showing, through the news and current events, that biblical prophecy is indicating the end times are near. To me, it is all falling into place. Technology, politics and huge geo/socio/political movements are all groaning toward the inevitable destruction that can only come from the sin inherent in men. And God is in full control of that explosion.
I do hope you enjoy what I write- but most especially, I hope you leave feeling the terrible urgency that Apostle Paul felt- there are so many that don’t know Jesus and who will perish. Don’t let that be your loved ones. Each of us must stand up and SPEAK with our mouths. Every one of us has been commissioned by Christ to go out into the world and tell them about Christ and his commandments. We are to instruct them to obey him. Silence just won’t cut the mustard anymore.
13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. 15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.- 1 Timothy 4
