The family and I are going on vacation this weekend. Not anything noteworthy to most, but we have not went on one since our son was born, which was 14 years ago. Overdue, I believe. We will be visiting the Creation Museum in St. Petersburg Ky, and the Cinncinnati Zoo, hopefully. Sorry if it offends anyone, but I believe God created exactly as He told us He did. Others have their right to believe that all the language God told Moses to use was symbolic, but such theories can never be proven using the language of scripture, so I personally dismiss their theories.
Language the world over, as inspired of God, and written within the text of the Holy Bible, is being discarded now. Even called hate speech. The title is taken from Luke 16:15, and is a quote from the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. He was addressing some Pharisees, who were deriding Him about His teachings. The reason given is that they were covetous. He says "that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God". He then immediately refers to God's word, and adultery. Adultery is shown in society everywhere now, and honored in the entertainment industry. And the world-at-large.
The followers of Islam are trying hard to make any speech against their prophet or the Quran against the law. Hate speech. And of course we have all the 'other books', and their prophets. We are told in the scripture that these would all come, claiming their own anointing. The Lord Jesus, is the Christ, the 'anointed One'. I believe the scriptures in Matt. 8:29, 14:33, 17:5, 27:54. Mark 1:1, 1:11, 3:11, 9:7, 14:61,62, 15:39. And, the fulfillment of the OT, in that He was "Immanuel" Isa. 7:14, Matt. 1:22,23. We see a definite pattern in the Holy Text of the Bible, and that is that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God. This is blaspemy, and hate speech, according to many now. The Bible is being called all of these, and dismissed as a corrupted text.
I am not one of those who will condemn or say what it contains is corrupt. It is the inspired word of God. The words it contains can easily be defined, there are tools galore that a person can use to do that. Men change those words. And will account for it. That is really all the warning we can give anyone. Even within christendom, people claim to know more than God, all in the name of God. Prophets who teach things scripture does not. Approving lifestyles, that scripture does not. In fact, scripture calls those 'lifestyles', "abomination". Which is considered hate speech.
It started a long time ago. This 'supposed' eye-opening. Being as gods. It continues today. The world can defend itself intelligently, they use very good arguments, in condemning God, and His word. In their minds they can successfully prove God's words wrong. Or, they always can use the symbolic theory, even if the language gives them no reason at all, to do. This makes them right, in their own eyes, and God's word wrong, if one takes it as written. The reason is to defend the theories of men, just plain and simple. They can then claim as fact, what is nothing more than a theory, cause no one was there to record any data. The conditions are what they present, though their observations are only a few centuries of the recent past.
God's word tells us all we need to know. But with mankind, that is unacceptable. In these last days, God has spoken to us through His Son. Heb. 1:1,2. The last book in the Holy Bible is 'The Revelation of Jesus Christ'. It contains many prophecies that were shown in the Old Testament, and the epistles. It will all be fulfilled, just as given. Mankind will continue on the course they are on, and do the fulfilling of all that is prophesied in the word of God. Because they have dismissed God's word, as He gave it. In their blindness, they know more than God, and His word. So, they believe a lie. Just that simple.
Salvation, peace, truth, holiness, everything of God, is through the Lord Jesus Christ. Repent, and believe the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the only way to be reconciled to God. God is longsuffering, but His wrath is soon going to shake the earth, and also heaven. The only sure foundation that will hold, is JESUS CHRIST. Believe in Him. Abide in Him, remain in Him, and trust Him. Maranatha.
