Many Sorrows Today

Our Lives often contain moderate to significant degrees of disappointments and sorrows that are generally speaking, acquired during normal aspects of human growth. We are often  being modeled into moderately well-rounded adolescents, that is if we are given the necessary love and nurture that all human beings need in our formative years. If we are given half a chance to excel in this fast paced, pressure filled life, then we may have what it takes to be  success in whatever path that we choose. In this modern society with its modern-day role models, our children  struggle to compete for dominance among their peers  in a variety of areas including sports. Hopefully, they will aspire for greatness in a healthy way. All too often, these so-called role models are athletes that themselves did not have good examples of what a role model should be. These sports stars turn out to have feet of clay, and are eventually overwhelmed by their success and fall into sin. What then are our children to think when their so-called heroes get into trouble and get caught living immoral lives? Our society sells news stories that in some ways tend to glorify their actions and give our children a false example of what is “good”. We do not have real heroes today, those who actually set the good examples that our children need, therefore they end up getting into trouble themselves. Where then will  the true heroes come from? The only true source of the kind of examples that our children need must come from the Bible! The Bible is full of examples of Godly men and women who followed the examples that God provided in his word and succeeded and still are models for our children today like King David. But even David had feet of clay and took his eyes off of God and sinned greatly! His life was filled with sorrows after the incident with Bathsheba and Uriah the Hittite. Almost all the heroes from the Bible failed in some way in their lives but God forgave them when they recognized their sin and repented while humbling themselves before God therefore God forgave them and gave them another chance. We must also realize that there are lasting penalties that we must suffer even though God has forgiven you. They are called consequences and we must keep this in mind when we are tempted to sin! There are also in the Bible, examples of those who God chose for greatness, who also failed miserably like Samson. Samson’s family suffered many sorrows as well! If we will use the traditional examples of the Biblical heroes that the Bible provides for our children then they will learn that no man is perfect and that they too will be forgiven by God, if they will only humble themselves in prayer.  For God’s forgiveness is something that He promises that He will do under certain circumstances. First, we must receive His forgiveness by “Faith”, but not just any kind of faith. It must be based on Faith in the “Greatest Sacrifice in The World”, which is the great sacrifice that Christ Jesus made on that tree between two thieves.  A “blood sacrifice” had to be made to pay for our sins. We can not have the necessary means to do this in our own strength. It is by the “Power of God” alone, which was planned to take place before the world began.

If we allow our sorrows to take control of our lives then we will never be able to overcome the  hardships of life that happen to each and every one of us, sooner or later! Those of us who name the name of Christ and truly mean it, will receive the sorrows of Christ at some point in their lives because Jesus said that because He suffered, then we also will suffer! I believe that it means, according to my experience, that those who belong to Satan will provide the trials because they in some respect see Christ in us and because they hated Christ in His day, they will also in our day, cause us to be hated as well! It may seem to you that the wicked prosper, and they do for a while, but eventually they will have a lifetime of sin debt, that will have to be paid! Since they do not have their sins paid for by the blood of Christ then their suffering has only been delayed and their sorrows in hell will not even compare to the sorrows that we had here on Earth. So I say to you, do not wait for you may die tomorrow and then it will be too late for you!

The changes that took place in my life at the age of 30 sent me in a new direction or perhaps I should say that it gave me direction in areas where it was lacking. It was absolutely beyond comparison with any hopes or desires that I had contemplated previously. I had given up on planning anything meaningful for my life and I was strictly in a survival mode of living. I had absolutely no hope for the future. In other words, I was in the “rut” of a lifetime and with no way out apart from death.

It seems that God allows us to reach the absolute end of our selves before he finally steps-in. Prior to this, we are in control or we at least think so and until we let go of the reins, so to speak, He will not involve himself directly in a way that we can perceive. This is what it took for God to enter into my life and He did it in a way that was mind boggling to say the least.

Why don’t you, whoever you are, give God a chance to show Himself to you and He probably will. That is if you are really at the end of yourself and are tired of falling on your face, not really understanding why you keep making these same kinds of mistakes in your life. You need to finally admit that you are not in control of your life and just give it to Him and say “Take Over, I want to give my life to you”. This is when it is likely to happen for you  and your life will never be the same! There is just one more thing that you need to do: Call on the “Name” that is above all other names, “Jesus“, and He will answer and come into your life and make it “New”. He does not promise that your life will turn into a rose garden but he does make some very specific promises. If you want to know more, I AM WILLING TO HELP. Just ask me.

I intend to add more as I am able so come back later and have a look.

Well, I am back and have not planned what I will say but The Holy Spirit does!

I am living in a small town in the southern part of Arizona where there are many who hate God and because I am a possesion of God, they also hate me! I do not hate anybody, but that does not stop others from hating me and if you truly trust Jesus for your “Salvation” and are truly trusting god for your protection then you need to know that He will protect you but that does not necessarily extend to your property. Actually it really is not your’s. Everything belongs to God and if He wants to allow someone to steel or destroy it then who are we to question Him about it! I am in the midst of a “Spiritual battle” and have even been shot at on two separate occasions by hateful people that want to run me out of this area! But guess what, I am not leaving! I have a powerful God who loves and protects me from their harm, at least to my body. I have had hundreds and even thousands of dollars of property stolen or destroyed by those who hate. I hope that you do not allow hate to reside in you. It is like a cancer that eats away at you. It can cause all sorts of physical problems along with stress which is known to damage the body. I was even intentionally tortured by an ENT Dr. which stands for: ear, nose and throat. It happened last year in october, on the 8th day in 2010. It was absolutely intentional and he even laughed about it afterwards. I have compared him to Josef Mengele who was Adolf Hitler’s chief torturer because he used an electrical machine to burn me and Mengele used electricity as one of the means of torturing poor boys and girls as well as other people! Listen to me when I say that you become a target for Satan when You trust Jesus as your “Savior” so do not be surprised when it happens. Jesus said that because they hated me , they will also hate you because Jesus will take up residence within you through His “holy Spirit”. Just think of the proof that this will provide to you, that you have “Eternal Life” through “Faith” in Jesus who died a horroble death to pay a sin debt that could not be paid in any other way!
