Three Paradoxes From A Life Like a Shadow

shadow

” For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding. “
–1CHRONICLES 29:15

paradox

4. A thing involving contradictory yet interrelated elements that exist simultaneously and persist over time.

6. An unanswerable question or difficult puzzle, particularly one which leads to a deeper truth.

ONE

It is certainly a paradox: even deceived end times man KNOWS his time in this life is short and limited.

AND YET…

The vast majority of humanity conduct their lives as if they will endure forever.

TWO

Modern man is well acquainted with times of sudden chaos which intrude upon his life without warning.

  1. The sudden outbreak of destructive modern warfare
  2. A sudden financial crash
  3. Any other sudden occurrence which changes many aspects of the way life is lived

AND YET…

The vast majority of humanity conduct their lives as if tomorrow will be like yesterday and today.

THREE

For centuries, God’s Word has warned man of the deceptions–both in general and specifically–which take place in the end times.

AND YET…

End times man has not only allowed himself to drift into those deceptions, he has run to embrace new ones with which his ancestors were unfamiliar.

The preceding three paradoxes all point to a fourth paradox.

FOUR

End times man has nothing of value to lose by repenting (changing his direction/mind), throwing himself on God’s mercy and coming into the kingdom of heaven.

AND YET…

He not only resists the urge to obtain salvation for himself and his family, he is hostile to any who attempt to assist him in this endeavor.

Man’s life is like a shadow.

And in man’s relatively short time in this world–in which he finds time for 1001 trivial pursuits–he does not seem able to find the time to ensure his eternal happiness.

“Man is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.”
–Psalm 144:4

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:3-8

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
