Fear Not For I Am With You.

“Jesus is the One” whose death and resurrection brings “eternal life to all who believe”

Fear Not For I Am With You.

As back in the time of our Lord today in 2021 the wicked ways of the world and that serpent the Devil have shuttered and put a damper or fear into the people with the global falsehood Covid catastrophe, to turn people away from Jesus Christ and the faith and to bow to the earthly power of the government or the many elite (emperors)and swear allegiance to this earthly system, with even talk of vaccine passports with the wearing of masks to cover the face and thus the visual identity of a person; to make one insignificant and to show trust only in the great world system with its power and supposed experts!  Of course as back in the time of Jesus Christ just like those earthly powers then sought to mislead; this is all a lie to deceive and control God’s children with fear.

Secularism or materialism coupled with a culture of death is a dark scourge upon our Nations and we have to pray we can free ourselves and indeed our societies from the powerful grip it has on it; distracting so many people from seeing the plain simple truth right in their faces!  Instead many are attracted to corruptions, sin, decadence, falsehoods and outright immorality; an antichrist movement, which is the road to perdition!

God is there to help us with our earthly living and who knows better than God what all of this is about. He directs us to do the best thing if we are truly receptive to Him, and also trying our best to do the right thing.

Look and see plainly where our society is now, a place in which an entitled group of bigoted lying criminals that are untouchables and in return spawned new criminal acts using those previous examples as templates to get away with doing wrong! All those former transgressions should have been nipped in the bud and been prosecuted to the full extent of the law to conviction; Rule of Law must apply for all equally just like Due Process is a given or should be. We want innocent people not being victimized but equally we want the guilty to pay for their crimes. This is what makes a society good and worth its salt.

But now more often than not we’re in a place where the unjust or most crooked among us can be elevated to positions of great earthly authority, even a President; as has happened here in America.

Many people perhaps feeling helpless or confused and scared want to be led to a place of assurance and comfort, and they love to invest themselves into some person who comes across as sure and strong with that article of great need by so many, wisdom; insight and knowledge of the Truth!  What is the Truth and can we be sure of it when we think we have found it!  In some things we can with practical knowledge and scientific logic break things down into the component parts and get the whole picture of what makes a thing what it is or tick.

Matthew 25:21 NIV says, “His master replied, ‘Well done my good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20).

Something Billy Graham said once rings with Truth very clearly to me.  “Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today. If evil were not made to appear good, there would be no such thing as temptation. It is in their close similarity that the danger lies.

Modern social righteousness often differs from the righteousness of the Bible. Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! Divorce was once frowned upon by society, and laws against fornication and adultery were strictly enforced. But now divorce is accepted by society, and fornication is glorified in our literature and films.” https://billygraham.org/decision-magazine/june-2012/confusing-evil-with-good/

I think genuine humility is a great thing; I think of Dismas on the cross next to Jesus and his humility was powerful to the Lord because as we know he told Dismas, “Truly I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise.” Luke 23:43

Another man considered a Saint now, who has to this day a profound effect on me and so many other’s is former Pope John Paul II who was a very good man with a “humble heart” and disposition, so to me he was offering these same kind of insights and basic truths to anyone; telling us to give our hearts to Jesus Christ.

I don’t think God intended on giving enough morsels of information and truth to leave us still so hampered and blind to what we must understand to some substantial level in order to now in these most troubled times to make the mistake of giving up, or maybe never satisfied. I like you too am observing the near outright chaos happening in our country and around the planet lately seeing the shaky flimsy balance of societies, while there are those agents within that promote the same, making matters exponentially worse; how it seems likely that perhaps anarchy is right around the next corner as we travel down this road of life on earth these days. We as Christians agree that God has it all covered, but, He gives us so many blessings or opportunities to shape up and take the initiative that we should, to be “devoutly faithful” and in prayer often, so that we maintain our own path to salvation, but just as important inspire others to do the same by setting a good example as we do it; especially in this topsy-turvy time of conflict and confusion where it’s so sorely lacking.

Here is an excerpt of something I was saying in one of my recent blogs regarding Big Pharma that I believe says something fitting here.

“An antichrist entity out to subdue, control, ruin and destroy countless lives and ultimately souls.”  With this type of culture at work around the planet with absolutely secularism running rampant, promoting and being facilitated by Big Tech now every second of every day on a massive scale not promoting God or anything to do with Him, but rather, “faith in technology” as God, and “Government coupled with High Tech” being our true savior, a narrative that’s saying the ways of the world and man himself are the only thing this side of heaven that can help us and do us any good!” This imposter savior which is like the Totalitarianism we see in China and other countries!

“Humility and Trust” in the Lord, are the essential factors to weather any storm or hardship we as mere children of God may face. As He has told us, we need to keep growing in our faith; and to remember this that our Lord and Savior said.

“Be not afraid, for with thee I am, Look not around, for I am thy God, I have strengthened thee, Yea, I have helped thee, yea, I upheld thee, With the right hand of My righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Yea, He is with us always, as now to support, strengthen and guide us to everlasting victory!  We can rest assured of that, and know this world has no claim upon us, his faithful; His victory made certain of it!  And all that is unholy and not of the Father He will cast into the lake of fire when the final judgment comes; so there is truly nothing to fear, our victory has been assured and we rise up to the father with Him, our ever-loving glorious Savior Jesus Christ!  Amen.

This is what it all comes down to; “Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you to Myself; that where I am, {there} you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going. 5 Thomas said to Him, Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way? 6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John14:1-6).

The death of our Lord is God’s way to heaven; it’s the only means by which we can live forever with Christ. Death, once our enemy, is defeated. Death cannot keep us from God; Christ’s death draws us to Him! Apostle Paul said, “For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better.” Philippians 1:21-23.

“Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord–for we walk by faith, not by sight–we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 5:6-8.

Jesus encouraged His disciples and all the faithful as He assured them that His death was going to be the means by which they would be with Him forever in Paradise. His death was not the problem, it was the only solution. So the Truth is our Lord’s death did not create any problem, it actually solved the greatest problem we all face being fallen and having the stain of sin; which can only provide death.  If Jesus had not been separated from the Apostles and all of us this way, by His death for all sins, they and we would die in our sins and thusly be separated from Him forever; which is too horrible to contemplate!  Jesus’ going, His death, paid the price or ransom for men’s sins, so that we can live forever in His presence. Amen.

The disciples did not understand Jesus at the time just prior to His crucifixion, but they did after His resurrection from the dead. They then went on and preached to all who would listen that “Jesus is the One” whose death and resurrection brings “eternal life to all who believe.” They no longer feared His death, as they had previously; just as we should not fear anything now in our uncertain world; even our own death, if we have faith in Him; we know we will gain life by losing this one.  The Apostles then as we now; have received the greatest Truth!

Where, O Death, your sting? Where, O Death [[or Hades]], your victory?” 1 Corinthians 15:55

God bless you.
