i don't know why i keep coming here and doing this, i just know it's something i have to do. it's in these moments that our Lord tells me what i need to know. in a perfect world everyone would read this and say DAh, now i know? but this ain't no perfect world and i ain't no perfect anything. all i know is that when my thoughts are focused on what's written in the Bible and when these thoughts escape me, my peace is given and my rest is in Him. i was shocked when i read other christians are preaching that acceptance of Christ is not needed to receive salvation. i'm sorry, but in a world that can believe that my momma may have ancestors that fishtailed their way out of the ocean, can"t believe their God, the one who created their everything, doesn't love them enough to make the sacrifice of receiving the death that evil has planned for them, then they don't know Him. now don't get me wrong i understand clearly how evil has taught us to hate those who see things different from us. i'm clear the Holy Spirit walks His walk inside our hearts and love covers a whole multitude of sin, but if you can't recognize the sacrifice that He made for you than i'm sorry you won't receive it. it's my guess that this one world government is gonna want to have it's one world religion, but the only way that is ever going to happen is when Jesus reigns! you can sit here until hell freezes over or until the moon disappears from the sky but if you fail to read the Words that God laid out for you, then how you gonna blame Him when it's time for you to die? i mean He created you and then fought the devil for you. He came down on earth in your image to destroy the bond that wicked holds over you. He left His Words of life so you could understand Him. He gives you the instinct to scream out for Him when the storms come and shakes your house and rips your wasteful toys away from you. what else do you need Him to do so you will recognize and reach out to Him? well don't be surprised of the list of things He's willing to try! Praise God, be a blessing, bubba
