T-Minus 11-Years and Counting!
God has a plan for your life.
More significantly, God has a plan for the entire Body of Christ and world as a whole. Sometimes unpleasant circumstances take place before God’s purposes reach fruition.
During these divine campaigns the saints can sometimes endure great struggles and persecutions; even our deaths can be for the greater good. For example, as groups of Christians were tortured and bravely faced death for their faith in the various Gladiatorial games of the Roman Empire, so thousands of Roman citizens and slaves experienced a profound calling towards Christ and salvation. Thus, for the loss of a few, thousands received eternal-life. And of course, those thousands led tens of thousands and hundreds, millions, billions right on, until and up to today.
God moves in mysterious and even strange ways. Humans seldom fully comprehend God’s true purposes or methods, after all, how can we see His ways clearly when He thinks eternally and we think temporally?
Think about it… could anyone actually guaranteed you a pleasant physical existence here on this fallen world? NO.
Rather, we humans are guaranteed a glorious eternal-life devoid of shame or suffering should we trust our Creator and follow The Way of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior (no other name given…). Remember, life is a journey. We must walk this world to learn and grow and understand the world around us.
So, we must climb the proverbial mountain of life because we are called by God to climb.
It is an act of faith each day for every one of us as we are called to live uniquely for Christ regardless of our circumstances.
Should we slip, fall or even bust our enormous butts falling down in the muck and mire of this life’s journey, we must get back up again and simply continue our climb.
It’s okay if we take a few moments to recover, shed a tear or two or even wipe off the muck, just as long as we eventually get back up again and continue to climb. After all, he who overcomes to the End will be saved, right?
As long as we keep climbing we’re doing good. As they say, never give up, never surrender. The only way we truly fail is if we cease to trust in Jesus’ sacrifice for our lives and sin.
Jesus did not come into the world to condemn to the world, but that through Him we might be saved.
To keep climbing (truly trying) is an exercise in great faith. Telling everyone you will climb may encourage you, but it is not an act of great faith.
Remember, God has a plan for your life. Trust Him!
Whether happy with your current place in life or not, keep climbing, keep the faith and never give up.
You know the Mark of the Beast is coming; in fact, it is already here.
We all need to be ready for what is coming.
If you are not aware of that fact you are not paying very close attention to the world around you.
What will you say to family and friends when one of them actually receives the Mark of the Beast? Do you think it might be too late at that time?
Will there be anything you or they can do once The Mark is in place under the skin?
Want to know?
Then you need a copy of “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse.”
There are answers within the book that every Christian needs in these Latter Days.
The clock is ticking and we are at T-Minus “What?”
Only the Lord knows the actual date, BUT we do know the season and the clock is running out of time.
Trust the Lord guys. Trust Him in all ways and at all times!
Because a truly monumental mountain is right in front of us and we’d better get some good climbing gear.
I’m signing off now.
You know, I could be George Mallory or Tenzing Norgay, or Edmund Hillary but I’m not, I’m just Steven R. Harrel and like you I’m doing the best I know how.
Trusting in the Lord and the power of His might.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus And the crowd roars… Aaaaaahhhh!
