Father uses calamities in our lives to teach us so that we will learn from them. Each and every one of us is on a different journey. This is your test and your challenge and what you do with it determines where your heart is. Sometimes it takes a lifetime before we switch destinations. Sometimes we are indoctrinated into the lifestyle only to turn away at a later time to venture off in the world..
Have you noticed all the things going on that you were not aware of before. Just ask an elder they will tell you this world is not what they grew up in. Persecution of every denomination, race, color and creed is going on bringing people against each other to divide and conquer is what the PTB want.
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:4-12
The media tempts us with things like fattening food, glamour and a lifestyle where we want more and more.. We are never satisfied with what we have.. so then we charge all those unnecessary things on a credit card and are unable to pay down the debt on it.. Are you trying to keep up with the Jones’s. Are we coveting what we see our neighbors have and we want it too? Can you take it with you when you die? What treasures have we stored up in Heaven? These are all good questions and food for thought..
Matthew 6:19-20 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Do you think it is time to really take a good look at yourself and what is in your heart..
And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Luke 12:16-31
Be satisfied with what you have and above all be thankful as many are less fortunate then you may be.. If you have extra … help some one out that is in need. Do not look down or cast them out… lest you be judged.
