The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: Everything to Gain, Nothing to Lose (Pages 83-84)
As we walk through life we are to pay attention to the little things. In most cases the details are where people miss the truth. Remember that hidden within the details is the true nature and heart of each person.
Halloween is a time for us to remember the details of the world that we live in…Every costume and outfit is a definition of one’s true colors. The more we strive to project positivity and symbolism the more enjoyable this holiday will be and we are able to gain a better understanding of the world that we live in…And what remains in the world… The truth is that Halloween is meant to be one of celebration and commemoration of both the past and the present.
By seeing each person’s choice as to what they represent we are able to get a better grasp on what type of world we live in. This also applies to faith…False gods and the one True God, who is the ONLY way out…Do we live in a world full of abomination or do we live in a world filled with peace. Peace goes hand in hand with joy. Joy is granted by God.
It is important to remember Christ on this Halloween and to recognize His absolute authority. It is important to remember his crucifixion on this day...Witnessing this time of turmoil and chaos for some ought to be a wake up call. God gives much forewarning of His power and His demands. What do we truly represent? What does this nation as a whole promote and teach? How much of a priority is Christ to our country? Is it beginning to make sense, as we draw near the conclusion?
The more we discover of what has taken place behind the scenes the more we understand why terrible events have occurred. God is waiting and watching to see how people conduct their lives and what they do with the blessings which He has given.
Nahum 1:2 “A jealous and avenging God is the Lord; The Lord is avenging and wrathful. The Lord takes vengeance on His adversaries.”
Luke 2:9-11 “And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Revelation 19:12 “And His eyes are a flame of fire and upon His head are many diadems; and He has a name written upon Him which no one knows except Himself.”
To a country and a world lost, what is the answer? How do you make the changes necessary to please God?
The simple answer is to build a world with Jesus Christ as the Chief Cornerstone…No other god compares to His ability and discernment of all things. No other God will save you…Eternity is the key to understanding…There are two directions that one may choose to take… By seeking Christ you have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
Be mindful of God’s supreme authority. Do not disregard His nature……..
