“A Voice in the Wilderness of Time”

A Voice crying out

I must depart from my usual post arrangement as the Lord has been heavy on my heart for those who rebel against Him. I look at all that is taking place in the world today, all of the greed, immorality, drugs and degradation and my heart weeps for those who have taken the path that leads away from the Creator. They know not what they do, it is this loving God who wants all to come to Him for love, peace, joy, happiness, kindness and all the other fulfilling attributes that He will give them. Greed and lust and immorality will never satisfy since the God who formed us in the womb has ordained us to live in a Garden of His creation soon to come.

Today, I want to draw attention to that Democratic party in the USA that is going against everything Godly. I was reading in Isaiah 66 from the Voice translation and there it gives the end result of actions against this awesome God of Creation.

Isaiah 66:22-24 Because just as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making will go on by My enduring will, so your name and the people who come from you will go on as well. From one month to the next, on Sabbath after Sabbath, everyone, every living thing, will come to this holy place to honor Me as God of all. This is My word to you. They’ll visit the site where the people who rejected Me lie rotting on the ground, crawling with worms that never die on a fire that just keeps smoldering. All who see it will recoil at the horrible sight.

And, here is a bit of a note at the beginning of this chapter in Isaiah:

The creation the prophet sees—the new earth—is radically different from the one everyone knows. At some deep level, everyone recognizes that the everyday world is not the world as God intends it; things are not the way they are supposed to be. But God will make everything new again. In that day, the painful past will recede and vanish. Unbridled joy and celebration will eclipse grief and sorrow. Jerusalem, the holy city, will become the center of the world. Long lives will be the norm. Peace will be secure without exception. God’s blessing will settle over all creation. Creation itself, with all its complexities, will be made new. No predator. No prey. Just peace and harmony throughout. This is a world only God can create when He creates it anew.

This is what the Garden of Eden was all about, a place of absolute perfection but Satan, Lucifer coerced them to listen to him instead of their Father and we see the result. But now, we can live an eternity in Paradise but it takes a decision to want Him as our Father.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I’m calling on the heavens and the earth to be the witnesses against you. I gave you the choice today between life and death, between being blessed or being cursed. Choose life, so that you and your descendants may live!

“Valentine’s Day”

Be My Valentine             A Calla Lilly

John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

***********From Wikipedia**********

Martyrdom stories associated with various Valentines connected to February 14 are presented in martyrologies, including a written account of Saint Valentine of Rome imprisonment for performing weddings for soldiers, who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians persecuted under the Roman Empire. According to legend, during his imprisonment Saint Valentine restored sight to the blind daughter of his judge, and before his execution he wrote her a letter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell. From what I have read, Valentinus (Latin spelling) was a Roman Catholic Priest or Bishop.

With all that is written in these days, the days we live in, there is one undeniable truth that has endured the centuries and is still as valid as the day it was presented and that is in the life of Yeshua, the Messiah of not only Israel but of the entire world of human beings. In the Bible, it states in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” In a sense, the Creator of everything there is, is coming to you today (and every day) and asking you to be His valentine, He wants to give you all the love He has to offer if you will accept His request to come away with Him for eternity. He wants to give you a life that is far beyond anything you could ever dream of or comprehend. It is true and He is asking YOU.

“Wilderness Journey”

wilderness

Deuteronomy 8:2  You shall remember all the way which the Lord your God has led you in the wilderness these forty years, that He might humble you, testing you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments or not.

 “This wilderness is where it is only God who can cause us to survive for a lifetime, if we will listen.”

As I was doing my morning reading in the Word of God, I came across Deuteronomy 8 where the children of Israel were in the wilderness and The God of Heaven was talking with them about their situation and where they were. But, He was also speaking of where they were headed, the Promised Land.

It occurs to me that, in a sense, the Lord has brought us all out of the womb, a sort of entrapment, into a world of harshness and unforgivness. The earth life is to try us and test us to see what is in our hearts. He, God, intends to bring us all into the ‘Promised Land’ but first, He must, He must know what is in our heart, do we want what He has to offer or do we want to follow our own way? That Promised Land is His Kingdom of Heaven but, it is surrounded by high walls and gates of pearl to keep out those who are not of the right heart and mind to enjoy its rules of order and purity of spirit.

It is this wilderness journey where we find ourselves today, where, according to His Word in the scriptures that, if we listen to His voice, He has promised to give us everything we need to prosper and be in health. 3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. This life which is God given is a wilderness journey to get us to the Promised Land where He will give us the new bodies that will conform to His Kingdom Paradise.

I encourage you to read Deuteronomy 8. Actually, the whole Bible is your guide to Paradise.
