Well put; and far too many are willing to surrender to the crooked ways of the world, with many as I see it being bought with money and favor as Judas Iscariot was, when he put this world and its trinkets above our Lord and Savior!
We either truly Love Jesus Christ with all of our heart putting Him above all other considerations or we do not, and we are all being put to the test in this life to determine that!
I see the US government and all others as caldrons of corruption, deception and rejection of the Almighty; sitting atop their thrones of lust for power and the world’s rich’s! Gluttons they are and shall they die!
Romans 11:12 “and if the fall of them is the riches of a world, and the diminution of them the riches of nations, how much more the fullness of them?”
People are selling out in multitudes today, some would and do sell their own mother or children!
Matthew 16:23-28 Amplified Bible (AMP)
But Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on things of God, but on things of man.” Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake will find it [that is, life with Me for all eternity]. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world [wealth, fame, success], but forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory and majesty of His Father with His angels, and THEN HE WILL REPAY EACH ONE IN ACCORDANCE WITH WHAT HE HAS DONE. “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, there are some of those standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Many have already decided they prefer to gain the whole world or to receive all the world has to offer—money, fame, pleasure, power, prestige, etc. But they ignore God’s Truth that to lose one’s soul is to die without a right relationship with Christ and then to spend an eternity in the lake of fire.
Now to me, that is the dumbest and stupidest thing I could do with “my life opportunity that God has bestowed upon me,” not the DAMNED world; and it’s so simple and plain to see this truth! We’re all being put to the test and many will fail, while some will pass this test and move on into God’s presence and glory; in bliss forever! Can the richest and most powerful among us lead me to that eternal life? Never; and all of them put together mean nothing to me, I’m never impressed by fools! Amen.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
