Are we coming or going? Do we know?...

At sometimes I don't wheter I'm coming or going. Do I know? Sometimes I don't. But that when my God is strongest with me, when I'm defeated. Not the news the world wants to hear. We want to be victors and triumphant and that sounds right and desirable. Who wouldn't be triumphant and a victor? I just returned from a basketball game and the team I was secretly derising to see win lost by a few unfortunate points. They had the chance. I don't didn't feel to well. I didn't have my evening meal and that made me feel so more terrible. I wasn't so hungry anyways I thought. There was great havoc in my house. The seniors did not want to retire and let me concentrate on God and his word. I took the issue to God. Why? Dear God why do I have to pass through these times and situations? I was defeated at the game- my eyes had had an indulgence to much and a look to far. I was defeated on the outside and on the inside. I began to become bitter and greatly distressed and took myself to my room. That's all I had left and got on my knees to pray and wished I disappeared. I wished for the rapture. Wait on the rapture? I don't believe on the event rapture! What a test. But then everybody decided to retire for the evening, very content at I don't know what those in the world glory in but it seemed that when I'm troubled, the devil gloats. But then gradually I began to regain my composure and feel better. We turn to Luke 2:41-52 where it says, ["... 41Now his parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42And when he was twelve years old, they went up according to custom. 43And when the feast was ended, as they were returning, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. His parents did not know it, 44but supposing him to be in the group they went a day's journey, but then they began to search for him among their relatives and acquaintances, 45and when they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem, searching for him. 46After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48And when his parents saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress." 49And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?" 50And they did not understand the saying that he spoke to them. 51And he went down with them and came to Nazareth and was submissive to them. And his mother treasured up all these things in her heart...] Now Jesus did not have his first distress in the Garden of Gesatheme when he was in anguish and wished he were dead and the cup pass from him. Or when his mother asked him, or commanded him to turn the water into wine. Not a happy affair. He said to her, " Woman what does that has to do with me?" Yes our Lord was tempted on all points to become our perfect High Preist. Turn to Hebrews 9:11-14 where it says, ["... 11But when Christ appeared as a high priest(A) of the good things that have come,[a] then through(B) the greater and more perfect tent ((C) not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) 12he(D) entered(E) once for all into the holy places, not by means of(F) the blood of goats and calves but(G) by means of his own blood,(H) thus securing an eternal redemption. 13For if(I) the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with(J) the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, 14how much more will(K) the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit(L) offered himself without blemish to God,(M) purify our[c] conscience(N) from dead works(O) to serve the living God...] And like we've said a High Priest, Hebrews 2:18 (Whole Chapter) For because he himself has suffered [Hebrews 4:15; Luke 22:28] when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. And in him we have sympathy because he suffered the most vehement insults, so he can be perfect for us and for anyone and for any situation we call upon him, Hebrews 4:15 (Whole Chapter) For we do not have a high priest [Hebrews 5:2; Isa 53:3 ] who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been [ Hebrews 4:14 ] tempted as we are, [Hebrews 9:28; 1 Pet 2:22; 1 John 3:5; Hebrews 7:26; John 8:46; 14:30] yet without sin. So in the heat of the battle we someone who really understands what is infamy and to be treated with open contempt. So we have hope on his because he is no stranger to abuse and derision. And that makes us smile. And I feel better now. Jesus said you will know the truth and the Truth will set you free. Smile, Smile, Smile with open praise and rejoicing. May you be blessed. Amen. thbg
