Lately, I have not been writing because I have been immersed in studying. However, I have often wanted to come on here and share things that the Lord has been teaching me. There is so much going on ... it amazes me how we (in general) live in this physical world and can become so wrapped up in the day-to-day living with all its activities (mostly problems needing solutions) & forget that there are greater things beyond our little individual, self-absorbed existences. There is so much happening in the spiritual realm. So much evil has been loosed into this flesh-hungry world system. I woke up last week to see splattered across the news that gay marriage was approved in Canada and Spain. Jews were being removed from the Gaza strip by military troops as it was declared a military zone. I was like, "What the heck just happened? Did I wake up five years later?" I mean, it really could have been any amount of years...but my point is, these were events I did not expect to occur in "my day". As in "overnight". As in "right now". Which simply proves to me that things are happening really fast. We are being pushed forward to the sovereign plan of God: Jesus Christ is coming back to judge this world of ungodliness...and those who are not found written in the Lamb's book of life have nothing much to look forward to other than to cease existing. Oh - and some unbearable pain & heartache without comfort.
Yeah. Like...that sucks & stuff for them.
Last night, this thought totally crossed my mind & I spoke it out loud: Whether you like it or not, God's word will prevail. It will come to pass. You can hate me, you can disown me, you can stop talking to me, you can yell at me, you can get very angry at me... but the fact is that I will speak the truth. And if that truth cuts and hurts, then perhaps you should take a deep look into yourself as to why it does. I can only speak the truth. How another reacts to that truth is not in my control. I am required to speak truth. The rest is your choice. You are given a choice: receive it or reject it. My part is finished once that truth is disseminated. It is left into your hands to do with as you please. There is One who judges you. The Word judges and that is why it can hurt when it pierces our hearts. But when you reject the Word - regardless of the messenger - you ultimately reject God's love. And He it is whom you will face in the end.
I am just the messenger. Do I fear man? No. I fear God. For greater He is and sovereign is He over man & the flesh. He gives authority & He takes it away. My life is in the hand of no man. My life is in the hand of my Abba. So it is written, so it shall be.
So it is written. None can contend. None.
