“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
Upon discovering the LORD God, one ALSO discovers that there are NO heroes among men.
There are only those who follow and obey God and enjoy his protection and mercy.
And there is everyone else.
Truth be told, one comes to the realization that any who WERE thought of as ‘heroes’ were only men of the world who mouthed the words of their script which made one mistakenly believe, “Hey, this guy think like I think! This guy is just like me!”
A saying popular in these parts went something like this, “Don’t have any heroes. Because if you become a Christian, you will soon realize there are no heroes among men.”
The more one KNOWS about the world in which man lives, the more one understands that there are NO heroes.
At least as one previously had understood the term “hero.”
The political arena?
The scientific community?
The world of entertainment and other cultural pursuits?
In short, EVERY place one previously had looked for those men who ‘stood above the crowd,’ one discovers that NO MAN ‘stands above the crowd.’
Particularly during the end times.
There are those who lean on God and SURVIVE what is to come.
And then, there is everyone else who dwells upon the earth.
One of the realizations one has, has to do with understanding the way the world REALLY works.
NOT the world according to the many stories which man hears and then repeats.
NOT the world according to the many stories one learns in school.
NOT the world which is promoted by Satan’s Mouthpiece (the Corporate Media) on an almost DAILY basis.
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
The real world.
IF one has discovered the REAL world which surrounds him–NOT the fake world which has been carefully constructed of various stories over the years–then one has surely discovered that there are NO heroes among men during the last days.
There are only MEN: fallible, easily-deceived men who will do almost ANYTHING because they value their own comfort more than they value almost anything else in this world.
There’s a very good reason the word “hero” does NOT appear in God’s Word even one time.
Man is a creature who values his COMFORT above all other things.
This is true whether that man imagines he controls the world, OR if that man is a member of the milling millions who generally populate the earth.
And, as it is SOON discovered: Attending to one’s COMFORT does NOT leave much time to be heroic.
DOES the reader believe that there are ANY heroes today?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT 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.”
