“Impressions”

Impressions

Isaiah 5:20-21 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! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Jeremiah 6:16 Thus says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. 

It seems to me that the world is still eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and in fact desires the fruit of evil more than it does the fruit of good. The trouble is we have eaten from the wrong tree, end of story. If it had not been so, we would still be in that Garden of God. This God of Creation is still admonishing that we should come to Him and find rest.

There is yet another tree in the Garden of God, and there are Cherubim with flaming swords guarding the way and those who have been allowed to eat of that other tree, these days are finding another sword coming against them. The problem we find is that this other fruit causes those who partake to become light in a very dark world and the darkness hates the light as it shows up the evil for what it is and at all costs must be destroyed. Thus, if you have eaten from that other tree, the tree of life, you will be sought out to be destroyed. Evil hates Righteousness. Lies hate Truth. Darkness hates Light. Those who have eaten from the tree of Life, can see where they are going unlike the evil generation who cannot see the abyss that they are about to fall into because it is so very dark. We must pray for the eyes to be opened and turn on enough light for at least some to see.

This God of Creation has called me to be a scribe with a camera to say what He shows me and I have been attempting to do that for the past 54 years. I pray blessings on your day and life.

Seedtime and Harvest”

Grain field

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

It does not take a lot of understanding to look around and see what kind of condition the world has and is becoming. There are riots and anarchy in the streets all over the world. There are vicious murders taking place everywhere and senseless acts of violence that was unheard of fifty years ago. It seems to be coming down to a world that does not want the God of creation in their lives because of all the evil in their hearts. There is lying and cheating and lust and pornography and greed in nearly every area one might see. And the Christian and Jewish heritage is hated with a passion because it shows up the truth of the lives that go against Gods eternal word. I am absolutely stunned by the violence that took place and is taking place because of the inauguration of Mr. Trump as president of the United States. I am so very blessed to be living where people take God seriously. So, I say to those who take God at His word , “Look up for your redemption draws near.”

Truth

19941005-00

Psalm 117:2 For His merciful kindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord endures forever.

It is extremely important that the Lords truth endures; otherwise everything would be in chaos. There would be no firm foundation to build anything upon. Life would be like a house of cards in every way. Even the smallest things that we know would not be stable. Can you imagine planting a few carrot seeds and at the harvest we would have some potatoes or onions and maybe a carrot or two. Nothing would be reliable. Expectations without truth would be fruitless about anything as guidelines of stability would be unreliable.

This Creator God is so infinite in all that He has created, including us. When truth is active, we can expect a result that is exactly in line with what is planted or stated. If someone tells you a truth, it can be counted on to be as declared in the end result, but if you are told a lie, the end result will not necessarily be as stated. It is still quite amazing that this God has put His words in the hearts of men to write them down so that we can have a firm foundation to rely on. The Bible is the only truly firm foundation upon which to build a life upon. It has been proven to be reliable over and over again throughout the ages.
