Materialism Fades

Things are Temporary

James 4:14 ESV

Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.

Old House – images from pixabay.com

Christmas Trees drop their needles, toys break, cars wear out and our buildings eventually crumble. Our bodies age and need more attention with each passing year. So, what can we do about the process of entropy that we are immersed in? First we focus on what is eternal: GOD.

Jeremiah 29:11-12 ESV

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.

This is wise because while statistically we all may not reach old age there is our progeny we may wish to provide for; a spouse; a non-profit organization. Responsible stewardship is a positive endeavor.

But making material gain a priority is flawed

Greed – images from pixabay.com

As I pointed out above the things of this world fade and crumble; our descendants may benefit but must make their own way eventually. The old adage, “We can’t take it with us.” rings true.

1 Timothy 6:10 ESV

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

Thanks, Pass the Food

This is the month that here in the USA we celebrate our Thanksgiving Holiday; a tradition we trace back to the early colonial period. There are folk tales about its origin but the official holiday was formalized by President Abraham Lincoln:

On this day in 1863, expressing gratitude for a pivotal Union Army victory at Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln announces that the nation will celebrate an official Thanksgiving holiday on November 26, 1863.*

Ephesians 5:20 ESV

Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Ornamental-corn – images from pixabay.com

We Thank God and Share our Good Fortune

From the beginning GOD has instructed us to  help those who lack food and shelter the widows, the orphans, the strangers the infirm.

Deuteronomy 24:19-22 ESV

“When you reap your harvest in your field and forget a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it. It shall be for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow, that the Lord your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. When you beat your olive trees, you shall not go over them again. It shall be for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow. When you gather the grapes of your vineyard, you shall not strip it afterward. It shall be for the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow. You shall remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt; therefore I command you to do this.

SHARE FOOD DO NOT WASTE IT

We Christians Give Thanks Every Day

Thanks while Kneeling – images from pixabay.com

Our daily bread is a symbol of much more than food we thank GOD for what Jesus has done for us and even now lives in heaven has our advocate defending us from Satan’s assaults and sowing GOD our righteousness granted by The GRACE of GOD.

Matthew 6:9-13 ESV

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

A Frightening Experience

 

Vapor – images from pixabay.com

When I was a teenager a friend and I (who had been exposed to Church teachings) were rebellious; we did some questionable things many teens do; the most fear evoking thing was an exploratory dabbling in the occult.  We played with the Ouija Board, self-induced hypnotic trances and played with automatic writing. Several events scared the wits out of us. Satanic or Demonic experiences I am not sure but we did know about Jesus and perhaps our families were praying for us because we did survive and break free from the influence.

The Spiritual World is a Battle Field

 

Battle – Public Domain

Fighting – Public Domain

Do not take the spiritual world for granted: The Good from GOD and the Evil from demons and Satan. As Christians we have Jesus to thank for helping us ward off the attacks of Satan and Satan’s cohorts. Sadly people possessed or  directed by evil entities may yet do harm as a consequence of sin or unbelief. We (we Christians) can call on Jesus for the strength to be strong and respond to the challenge. The evil ones fear GOD and know Who Jesus is. Ultimately (sooner or later) Jesus with all the power of GOD will judge and mead out  what is to happen to Satan and the Fallen Angels.

Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, …

The Apostles and Disciples called out demons the way Jesus had; can we do the same? In some circles this is debated so, I will leave the subject for further study,  advanced counseling from mentors, and local Church leaders.

Will he or she lead you to good, evil, life or death? Do they appeal to this temporal life: pleasure, riches and luxury. Or, do they lead you to eternal life with GOD?

Why not avoid some of life’s painful lessons by giving your parents,  teachers, elders and religious mentors a listening to.  Why not closely pay attention to the wisdom of the Bible – GOD’s Word. Stories, parables, allegorical example and literal truth from thousands of years of experience but, more important, from GOD.

 

My first extensive reading of the Bible was Proverbs and followed by Ecclesiastes.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.

No, at first I did not understand it well nor did I get the messages however, when calamity overwhelmed me and GOD got my attention I accepted Jesus.  From that moment The Holy Spirit helped me to understand and change.  Christians seemed to appear from nowhere and they helped me is so many ways.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-22 ESV

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; …

Christians are not immune to calamity, injury, loss, illness and death, why? How do Christians claim to be at peace in the most trying circumstances? How is it that some Christians are able to even face death without loosing their faith? (all Christians are saved even if they falter in their last hours.)

First: They (Christians) have eternity guaranteed by Jesus.

John 5:24 ESV

Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

Second: God uses worldly challenges in order to demonstrate grace and faith to the unsaved; the power of Christians when tempted to yield has a limit.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV 

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me

Last: All people are tempted to sin in the same way – this includes Christians denying Christ under threat – this is why everyone needs GOD and can see GOD in eternity when trusting in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

GOD is Good – images from pixabay.com

Having Christ sets you on a path to recovery now and for eternity. Life will not be perfect but it will be better.

Romans 8:28 ESV

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Holiness

(click title to enable comment space at the bottom) 

The Holy City of Jerusalem – images from pixabay.com

What is Holiness and who can be Holy?

Even the best humans have the seeds of corruption within them so can any human claim to be holy? Well, it is a relative process; we Christians do not but into many things that are described as relative.

Moses – images from pixabay.com

For instance, while all killing is not murder, murder is murder period. We do kill animals, fish and birds for food. We do not attempt to qualify murder by saying, “The slaying was murder-like.” for example.  Yes in a war things get all messed up, because all people Christians included, seek ways to justify what goes on by claiming they are right and justified.  Defending one’s family in a war or criminal situation seems clear to many but, not even that is accepted by all – war or self defense is a last resort. So how can people ever agree who is holy and how to become holy?

Leviticus 11:45 ESV

For I am the Lord who brought you up out of the land of Egypt to be your God. You shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.”

God is Holy – images from pixabay.com

Acts 2:38 ESV 

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

GOD is Holy. Jesus is Holy. The Holy Spirit also.

We can become an improved version of ourselves by becoming more Christ-Like every day thus moving  from the starting place as “sinner” toward a saved person – saved by GOD’s Grace – eliminating sins as we are convicted of them. So, after all, since even as a “Saved Christian” we are not sin free here on Earth but we are set apart (more holy less sinful) and by accepting Jesus as Lord, GOD does not see our sin because of Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection; we are counted as “HOLY” even now.

The explanation is contained in the Bible.

The Holy Bible – images from pixabay.com

1 Peter 1:13-25 ESV

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one’s deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, …

An important distinctions between holy, sacred, sanctified and saint may arise when discussing holiness: see the following website on usage in the English Language:

Difficult Questions

(^^^ Click on Title to go to actual Article ^^^)

Should I use Violence to Defend

Use Martial-arts? – images from pixabay.com

One of the most difficult dilemmas you may be faced with is whether to use violence for defense.

Carry A Gun? – images from pixabay.com

Some of you may mumble, “that’s a no brainer; of course I would”. There may be a small minority who would choose death before causing harm to anyone for any reason.  Scanning my morning digests of articles in academic journals I spotted one that read: Modern civilization doesn’t diminish violence

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/10/171027104843.htm

Another article read: Does population size affect rates of violence? The bottom line read:  . . . Ultimately, Falk and Hildebolt found that people living in small-scale societies are not inherently more violent that those living in “civilized” states, and that war deaths scale similarly with population sizes across all levels of human society.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/10/171026164552.htm

Use Weapons? – images from pixabay.com

As a Christian these suggested findings point to the nature of humans truthfully described in the Bible.

Matthew 15:19 ESV

For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.

Protect a Loved One? – images from pixabay.com

Ignoring GOD’s explanation does not change things; scientific studies can attribute this part of our nature as evolving from our more precarious primitive state. There was, and there may still be, people who believe that given the right opportunity humans will allow their peaceful traits to prevail: where is the evidence for that? In affluent societies where there is ample supplies and opportunities to be successful even the privileged can fail to manifest the “good” we humans supposedly have at our core: The recent perpetrator who was wealthy, seemingly lacking for nothing committed the Las Vegas mass murder. See: Brother says Las Vegas gunman was a wealthy real-estate investor

http://www.denverpost.com/2017/10/03/gunman-who-killed-50-at-las-vegas-concert-was-retired/

The NIV Bible expresses our nature in a more stark way:

Isaiah 64:6-7 New International Version (NIV)

All of us have become like one who is unclean,
    and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
we all shrivel up like a leaf,
    and like the wind our sins sweep us away.
No one calls on your name
    or strives to lay hold of you;
for you have hidden your face from us
    and have given us over to[a] our sins.

Isaiah is describing human attitude toward GOD.

Universal Human Rights

(^^^ Click on Title to go to actual Article ^^^)

Jesus – images from pixabay.com

GOD desires that all people should be                   saved from eternal damnation.

John 3:16-17 ESV

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

Jesus fulfilled the penalty of death for all sin and all who, sinned, sin now and will sin; by accepting this work you receive eternal salvation and will dwell with GOD in Heaven.  Humans fall short and even in the name of religion perpetrate evil upon one another. You can still be forgiven; even  begin again as a new creation in the eyes of GOD.

2 Corinthians 5:17 ESV

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

GOD’s Love for us is the basis for Universal Human Rights.

Human rights for all – images from pixabay.com

If you need clues concerning the value of all humans in the eyes of GOD read these:

Proverbs 31:8-9 ESV

Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

and,

Psalm 82:3 ESV

Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute.

and,

Isaiah 1:17 ESV 

Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

Unexplained Behavior

Evidence of Evil – images from pixabay.com

Do you wonder how some people can seem to do awful things? …

. . . and seemingly do them without affecting their conscience? Do you think perhaps they do not have a conscience?

Complex Mind – images from pixabay.com

Common wisdom indicates that initiating a pattern of ignoring pangs of conscience leads to ever greater tolerance to what is offensive. For example: doing nothing when someone is observed to be abusive toward another gradually leads to a more tolerant view of the nature of abuse.

Leviticus 5:1 ESV

“If anyone sins in that he hears a public adjuration to testify, and though he is a witness, whether he has seen or come to know the matter, yet does not speak, he shall bear his iniquity;

The Moral Compass within us is vital

Inner War – images from pixabay.com

Knowing good and evil may have begun with Adam and Eve partaking in the forbidden fruit long ago that, enabled us to recognize the standards of good and evil of GOD but, it is very much still a part of the human experience – in our nature.  This ability provides us with discernment and with discernment coupled to free will we have a great responsibility to do right. As Christians we have an even greater responsibility to do right, promote good and, oppose evil than those ” who are perishing”.

Ephesians 6:12 ESV

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Remain vigilant, ready to  good and oppose evil at all times.
