The Christmas Season is Upon Us

CHRISTMAS

Even though Christmas is an event celebrated EVERY YEAR, there are still a few points which bear the ‘friendly reminders’ tag.

1- Even though Christmas time was NOT the time of birth for Jesus Christ, it is STILL the time when the whole world–whether it is serious, or (more likely) whether it is pretending–chooses to mark the occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ.

2- Even though the holiday season has degenerated largely into “What am I getting?”, there is still much joy to be found in the selecting a gift which brightens the time and the eyes of the receiver.

Selecting, obtaining, preparing a gift which the giver is sure to be needed and/or desired by the receiver is STILL an activity which marks the Christmas season in some households.

3- For some reason–perhaps because it is an occasion which occurs EVERY year?–Christmas is a time when many folks take a few moments (or longer) and unlock the memories they have stored away for safekeeping.

Once unlocked, these memories are examined (like a collection of old photographs).  The examination many times yields a warm feeling reminiscent of the original time the memory occurred.

Which seems to be the whole point in taking a few moments annually to examine such memories.

4- Almost EVERYTHING used to remind folks of Christmas–supposedly the birthday of Jesus–is of pagan origin.

Christmas trees, Christmas carols, Christmas gift-giving: all have their roots in once-pagan traditions.

It is hard to name one ‘Christmas’ tradition which is based on Jesus.

5- How many times has the reader heard the phrase, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” LATELY?

It seems that even the MOST COMMITTED have taken to using that phrase less as the year have gone by.

Perhaps they look around and SEE that that phrase is LARGELY only words and the actions necessary to back up those words are no longer performed?

FIVE friendly reminders…

Because the Christmas season is upon us.

HAS the reader been wrapped up in plans for the Christmas season?

AS deeply as in years past?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

“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. ”

“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.”

Of Great Import

“Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.”
–Hebrews 2:1

Some thoughts from God’s Word are so clear as to have NO disagreement surrounding them.

Others, not so much.

This piece is written in the hopes that, AFTER reading and digesting it,  there will be one LESS point which can be argued.

Recently, someone wondered about ‘what was important during the end times?’

BUT–upon reflection–it seemed that the person was making the remark MORE to himself than to others present.  So, that person seemed to be trying to make sense of the information he ALREADY HAD, rather than seek new information.

Instead of offering any new information, perhaps a distillation of what is already known would be more helpful?

What is important during the end times?

As with almost EVERYTHING ELSE, it depends upon whether a person is a believer (in God, in God’s Word, in Jesus Christ) or not.

IF one is a believer, then what is important are the THINGS OF GOD, the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN and ETERNAL LIFE.

ALL things which further these ends are important to the believer–because the THINGS OF GOD are important to the believer.

IF the person is an UNbeliever, then the THINGS OF GOD are not so important to him.

What IS important to him are the things of this present world (the things he can see, hear, touch: the things he can experience through his senses).

“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

Loving the things of the world and loving God: these two points are irreconcilable.

The believer KNOWS this from the word of God.

“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

Men of the world (who often masquerade as men of God) MANY TIMES try and bridge the gulf between the two points by arguing that “understanding” and “differences of opinion” prevent the two sides from agreeing on that which is NOT agreeable.

EITHER the things of the world OR the things of God are very important to a person.

NOT BOTH.

One or the other.

Let this piece serve as a CLARIFICATION of that IMPORTANT end times truth.

DOES the reader have a ‘soft spot’ for a thing of the world?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

Man Entertains Thoughts Which Are NOT From God

THOUGHTS

During the course of a normal, usual day, a man may entertain THOUSANDS of thoughts.

Some are organized into distinct sections.

Some are not.

Some are pondered because they might lead to material gain or some other advantage.

Others are considered “stray thoughts” which ‘pop up’ into our heads and we begin thinking on them BEFORE we really become aware of what we are doing.

IF one carries on a fairly constant, internal conversation with God, then one can easily ascertain that SOME of these thoughts come from the LORD Himself for our edification.

By the same token, IF one carries on a fairly constant, internal conversation with God, then one can ALSO easily ascertain that SOME of those thought do NOT come from the LORD.

Who puts those thoughts there?

Perhaps Satan himself.

Perhaps some who labor in league with Satan for NO good end.

Why does God allow His creation to struggle with such stray thoughts?

Perhaps God wants to see how man will react to such thoughts?

Man might turn away from such tempting fruit OR man might latch onto such fruit as a way to ‘outwit’ the God who created him.

Because God inhabits EVERY point in time–past, present and future–He KNOWS how each man will react to ‘stray thoughts.’

BUT maybe He wants to see what He already knows to be true, confirmed?

During the course of a normal, usual day, a man may entertain THOUSANDS of thoughts.

IF one carries on a fairly constant, internal conversation with God, then one can ALSO easily ascertain that SOME of those thought do NOT come from the LORD.

The reader may let this piece serve as a gentle reminder:

Beware of stray thoughts which suddenly appear!

HAS the reader ever had a stray thought from who-knows-where?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

Do NOT Wait Until the Last Minute to Put Your Trust In the LORD

LAST MINUTE

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
–Proverbs 3:5

Trusting in the LORD brings a person ALL KINDS of benefits: some in this present life; some, in the eternal life to come.

HOWEVER, for a number of different reasons, a great number of folks put off putting their trust in the LORD.

Perhaps it is because they are “too busy” and tell themselves that they will get around to doing it “later“?

Perhaps it is because they tell themselves that it REALLY isn’t as important as some make it out to be?

Perhaps it is because they feel they have MORE IMPORTANT things to do?

There are those who will NEVER–for whatever reasons they may have–put their trust in the LORD.  Most of these folks feel that there is NO other who will look after their needs like they would.

BUT these are deceived and will reap the wages of deception.

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
–Proverbs 14:12

Some folks really do have the best of intentions concerning this circumstance, but one thing leads to another and, before you know it, they are smack-dab in the middle of the end times.  They see chaos and confusion unfolding on every side of their existence WITHOUT a reliable guide.

On this very important matter:

Do NOT wait.

Do NOT delay.

Do NOT procrastinate.

Depending on the LORD is a way of life and some practice will make things go more smoothly.

Do NOT wait until things are falling apart and God’s judgment is falling upon the earth and those who dwell upon it.

Turn to God NOW and be experienced at putting your trust in the LORD.

Oh, and do NOT fear man and the schemes of man.

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.”
–Proverbs 29:25

MORE:  End Times Faith: Trusting in God Instead of Man is Frightening Prospect IF One Has Never Done It Before

Do NOT wait until the last minute to put your trust in the LORD.

What are you waiting for?

Start NOW!

Has it crossed the mind of the reader to make amends and start living his life in a NEW WAY?

What has stopped the reader from fulfilling this thought?

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.

Determining One’s Heavenly Status

CHECKING ONE'S STATUS

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
–John 5:24

Recently, a SHORT discussion on how to determine one’s heavenly status was entertained.

The discussion was not very long because one of the participants in the discussion gave an answer which allowed VERY LITTLE argument.

The discussion went a little like the following.

“I’ve heard you say that believers are to treat other believers differently from non-believers.  How can you tell FOR SURE a believer from a non-believer?”

“How can you tell?  Oh, it’s fairly easy–particularly the ones who congregate in the Sunday social clubs we call the churches.  Just listen to them talk for a few moments.  That will tell you all you need to know.”

“How?”

“Well, believers focus on the things of the NEXT life.  UNbelievers focus on the things of this world.”

“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

“UNbelievers talk about their jobs, what they are planning to buy, where they are going on vacation, how their kids are doing in school, what the church is serving to eat next: the things of this present world. Believers focus on the NEXT life, KNOWING that this life is so short; that this life is only a test of where you spend the NEXT one.  That’s how you can tell.”

“Sounds easy.”

“It is–IF you do it.  Most do NOT do it, preferring to get sucked into the conversations rather than determining what those conversations indicate.”

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
–Matthew 7:21-23

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
–Ecclesiastes 12:13

ABOUT WHICH is the reader more concerned: this present life or the one to come?

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.

The Return of Jesus Christ Does NOT Have To Be the End of the World

END OF THE WORLD MOVIES: 5 End of the World Apocalyptic movies

A FRIENDLY END TIMES REMINDER

The world babbles on and on and on and on about how the return of Jesus Christ and the climax of human history is the ‘end of the world.’

It is NOT.

Though it has been pointed out BEFORE in these pages, it is something which bears repeating.

The return of Jesus Christ is ONLY the ‘end of the world’ for the WICKED and FOOLISH.

For the people of God?

Not so much.

“And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
–Luke 1:31-33

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
–Daniel 2:44

“And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.”
–Micah 4:7

The closest that God’s Word comes to calling the last days “the end of the world” is Matthew 24:14.

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

When God’s judgment becomes reality, the WICKED, FOOLISH and EVIL men will see their world–governed these many years by the prince of this world–come to an end and the kingdom of Jesus Christ (an everlasting kingdom) begin.

Those few who are members of the kingdom of heaven will then see that kingdom start and NEVER end.

ONLY IF the reader is part of the world will the return of Jesus Christ be the ‘end of the world.’

For the righteous, the return of Jesus Christ is only the beginning.

To which group would the reader rather belong?

This has been a friendly end times reminder.

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.

There Are NO Safe Havens During the Last Days

safe haven

A FRIENDLY END TIMES REMINDER

During the last days, when ALL of God’s Creation is in turmoil and chaos brought on by God’s JUDGMENT, it would do well IF the reader kept in mind that there are NO safe havens.

Actually, there are a FEW safe havens, CREATED BY GOD.  But those are few and far between.

The reader MAY need this reminder as a great many men–especially the rich and celebrated–believe that there ARE safe havens.

These men not only believe this, they have plunked their money down in order to own (what they believe to be) a place of safety in times of uncertainty.

For some reason, men believe the SAFEST places are underground: protected on all sides by tons of rock and dirt.

The prophet Isaiah described a FEW of those men, their mistaken beliefs and what happens to them during the last days in the second chapter of Isaiah.

“The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 

“Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots: Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made: And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not. Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

“And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
–Isaiah 2:1-4, 7-10, 11-12,14-15,17-22

The second chapter of Isaiah is NOT the only place in God’s Word which paints this picture.

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
–Revelation 6:15-17

“But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.  For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.”
–Luke 21:28-30

SO, unless God provides the reader with a place of safety and protection–which is unlikely to happen (and impossible for the WICKED to enjoy)–there will be NONE.

This has been a friendly end times reminder.

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.

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
