When and Who

When and Who

A thought which, more than once, popped into the head of a then-heathen.

“I am one lucky guy!  I could have been born ANYWHERE at ANY TIME in history, but I was born in the second half of the 20th century in the United States of America.  I could have been born into poverty, but I was born into the richest country that ever was.  I could have been born into a time when mankind was in poverty and didn’t know much about anything, but I was born in the second half of the 20th century in the United States of America.  All of the world’s latest discoveries are at my beck and call.  I am one lucky guy!”

As stated, this was the thought which once upon a time popped into the head of a heathen, who was focused on the world and the things of the world.

“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.”
–James 4:4

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

These days, another thought has popped into that same head (though it is now the head of a believer) more than once.

“I am one lucky guy! I could have been born ANYWHERE at ANY TIME in history, but I was born in the second half of the 20th century in the United States of America. I was born at ground zero for deception; in a land of deception; into the end times, a time of great deception.  By the mercy of God, I have been granted eternal life. Why?  What am I to do? By the grace of God, I have been admitted into the kingdom of heaven.  I am one lucky guy!”

The difference between the two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THOUGHTS (formed within eight years of each other)?

FIRST: after much pondering, it’s been decided that timing is a matter of GREAT importance when such thoughts are formed.

After much pondering, it’s been decided that the circumstance greatly dictate, not only the person having the thoughts, but the thoughts themselves.

FINALLY, after much pondering, it’s been decided that it’s all a matter of WHO has those thoughts and WHEN such thoughts occur.

ONE body, TWO different times, TWO completely different outlooks/people.

WHEN and WHO.

HAS the reader ever had similar thoughts?

DOES the reader focus on the present world?

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.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

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
