Dealing With Life
I'm sitting here, in the midst of finishing a leather project. I'm working on a lambskin hand bag for my daughter for Christmas, and I need to let the handles dry before stitching them on.
A thought came to mind...
Yesterday and the day before I wrote of a suspected world changing event coming our way, and frankly it has me befuddled.
I mean, here we are, a month after a huge political change was voted in. and it seems that every day the liberal left is looking for ways to invalidate the political change, instead of accepting it and moving on.
I do believe that if they could, they would go scorched earth, like Iraq did with the Kuwaiti oil fields in the face of advancing Coalition forces. Another example is the USSR burning everything before the Nazis invaded.
We shouldn't be surprised, as this is a picture of mankind without God in their lives.
When man first walked the earth, the same thing happened.
Then the Lord[b] saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
To recap so far, Adam and Eve did what God said not do and brought sin upon the entire human race, they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden. The first murder occurred soon after when Adams son Cain killed his brother Abel.
It went downhill from there, and has been headed steadily downhill ever since.
Verse 5 says that every intent of mans thoughts were evil...continually. It was so bad that God said He was sorry He even made man. Now, that's bad folks.
So God decided to destroy mankind...except one person, one...found favor in Gods eyes.
So God did destroy the world, by a flood and saved Noah and a handful of others and a vast amount of animals to repopulate the planet.
Fast forward a few thousand years...God's plan for mankind was to become a human and live among us...sinless and perfect, and paying the price for our sin with His blood, thereby purchasing man from the author of sin, Satan.
However, the deal is, you have to believe it and accept it.
So my thoughts go back to the stories of old. I'm thinking about the prophets of God. Here these guys were, they didn't choose to be prophets. God chose them Himself.
They had to carry in their heads, the images of impeding judgment from the Holy Father. Who could they talk to about it? Not many I would guess.
Do you think Isaiah could talk to his wife about what was on his heart? Maybe that's why a bunch of them were single.
I was thinking the other day about how we could have healing in our country. I can only think of only one way, and that is thru God. I don't see any human patching up the division, the way it needs to be patched up.
It's almost like we would need to start over. From the ground up...like the Phoenix, rising from the ashes. Like maybe something from space, that can set us back a few hundred years.
So, do you have any food stored up?
What about water or methods to protect yourself and your family?
What would you do if the entire world changed overnight?
Would you pin on a safety pin and cry over it, or go out and protest...or would you take a deep breath and deal with it?
