The World’s Limitations

limitations

“A man’s got to know his limitations.”
–Dirty Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood)

To all of those who focus HEAVILY on THIS world and the things of the world: the LIMITATIONS of the world will become more and more apparent.

To the FEW who KNOW that this world is headed for a climax (the return of Jesus Christ and the throwing out of all of those who imagined they controlled the world): the LIMITATIONS of the world have LONG been apparent and that is a BIG reason those few–who are followers of Jesus Christ–do NOT focus on this world, but on the one to come.

Of course this means the scorn of the world and all of those who believe this world is all that there is, is directed at the few.

As Jesus once put it:

“If ye were of the world, the world would love its own: but because ye are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
–John 15:19

But, there are LIMITATIONS to the world’s scorn, even as there are LIMITATIONS to the world and all that is contained in the world.

Those who are focused on the world–though they are often aware of the world’s MANY limitations–pretend that the world is king.

It is not.

The world is part of God’s creation–and that creation will bend its knee to its Creator.

“I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”
–Isaiah 45:23

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth”
–Philippians 2:10

And, the world’s unwillingness to obey God is a primary LIMITATION of the world–and ALL those who dwell in it.

IS the reader handicapped by his inability to recognize the limitations of the world?

HOW does the reader KNOW?

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
