Just  Sharing  ...

The love of Jesus Christ compels us.

As we walk in His grace under the direction of His precious
Holy Spirit, we care about folks to the degree we avoid  false-
hope  flattery.  Will we  endure  in loving people to the extent
of being willing to offer both biblical exhortation and corrective
warning?  YES, we will, for we wish to be  better than  simply
nice

As a caring parent shows  love  through counsel - sometimes in
the form of  you should (s)  and/or  you shouldn't (s)  (for example,
"Don't play with fire, you may get burned") - so too does our heavenly
Father offer Counsel which includes prohibitions.  "Don't follow after
false gods."  "Don't be deceived by all the false ways of these  end
of days."  Indeed, His  you should nots  are love driven.  God is good.  
Thank You holy Father!

He also offers  you should  Counsel.  "Love the LORD your God with 
all your heart, mind, soul and strength."  "[You should] see to it that no
one deceives you."  (repetition for the sake of emphasis)  "Love in
action, not simply in word."

As God graciously bestows caring Counsel, so too do  we  offer this
loving Counsel - not  our  counsel, mind you, but  His  Counsel.

But you know what?  It's up to each one of us to accept it  ... or
reject it (and let's not fail to discern:  ignoring it  is rejecting it!).

Here's a worthy  reality check  ...

God's Word will be fulfilled, including the reality that all will one day
give account to Him.  Remember, God is not mocked - Galatians 6.

So we offer this (His!)  we should  conclusion:

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:  Fear God and
keep His commandments, for this is man's all.  For God will bring
every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether
good or evil."  Ecc. 12:13, 14  (NKJV)

"If someone says, 'I love God,' and hates his brother, he is a liar;
for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how 
can he love God whom he has not seen?  And this commandment
we have from Him:  that he who loves God  must  love his brother
also.  Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, 
and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is
begotton of Him.  By this we know that we love the children of
God, when we love God and keep His commandments.  For this
is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.  And His 
commandments are not burdensome.  For whatever is born of
God overcomes the world.  And this is the victory that has over-
come the world - our faith.  Who is he who overcomes the world,
but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?"
I John 4:20 - 5:5  (NKJV)

On One Pressing  Thing  To Ponder

Things  are good  ...  at least  some  of them!

Philippians 4:8 encourages God's people in Jesus Christ to
meditate on certain things.  One Bible topic which includes
all  the  things  (true, noble, just, pure, lovely and of good 
report)  is  the love of God.

Recently, upon contemplating more personally on this thing - the
love of God for ME - I had a (positive) melt down.  His love for me
(as I took the time to be quiet before Him and consider His active,
I Cor. 13:4-8a love)  brought tears to my eyes, to say the least. 
His loving presence floored me.

Perhaps  YOU  need a  like  blessing.

If you're willing, make time to sit at Christ Jesus' feet and ponder
His love  ...  for  YOU.

Consider including in your meditations the following Truths/truths:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotton Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting
life."  John 3:16 - NKJV  Reread this verse substituting "the world"
with the first person, singular pronoun:  "For God so loved   ME 
that He gave ..."

"How deep the Father's love for us [me], how vast beyond all measure;
that He should give His only Son, to make a wretch His treasure."
Stuart Townend

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were
still sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans 5:8 - NKJV  Personalize this
precious passage:  "But God demonstrates His own love toward  ME ..."

"O the deep, deep, love of Jesus, vast, unmeasured, boundless free!
Rolling as a mighty ocean, in its fullness over me."  Samuel Francis

"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we
should be called the children of God!  Therefore the world does not
know us, because it did not know Him."  I John 3:1 - NKJV


Father, I praise You once again for the recent  sacred  experience You
graciously extended, one during which Your  love lifted me.  May others
be deeply touched as they spend sweet time with You too.  In Jesus
Christ I pray, amen.

DON'T  Just Leave It To Imagination!

America, IT'S TIME to step up to the plate and further do our part!

You've most likely heard the lyrics,  I can only imagine.  

Imagine  the past three years  without  the opposition we've
suffered - and I do mean suffer! - from the political enemies of
our great nation.  How much more  good  would we have seen,
both nationally and internationally as we continue helping both
ourselves  and  other countries?

But it's time to  ACT  on what we know to be the case:  Let's
value our  VOTE  to the extent of actually voting, voting to help
UN-Americans  out of office so as to to get back to the beauties
of  one nation under God  ...  a country that is true to its name:
UNITED  states.  Let's see these who are hurting  US  quieted
by  not  extending to them the privilege of further representation
due to their failure to live out the oath they took upon entering 
their assignment.

Let's see (by doing our part) all three governmental arms of our
nation back to health.  Begin, even now, actively encouraging a
perspective toward cleaning up the darkness presently manifesting
itself.  Be a part of allowing LIGHT to overwhelm darkness.  Do so
simply by action ... YOUR action.  May  we the people  retain the
form of republic we have so enjoyed since its inception.  

Father YHVH God, thank You for outlining, in Your Word, glorious
and sound principles for a society of justice, mercy and grace.
May we do our part to live out  Your  principles in our setting of 
government here in the USA.  In Jesus Christ's name, amen.

On One Other Pressing  Thing  To Ponder

The  present, end-of-days  landscape,  in part,
looks something like this:
The 2nd Wave

Another way of describing and discerning
current global culture, in the context of
pertinent  thematic  Bible data, is this:
End Time Bible Themes

Yet another way of highlighting our
present state, one which includes crucial
chonological  Bible data, is this:
End Time Bible Chronology

In conclusion, because there truly are major
problems within many  eschatological (end-
time)  views today  -  Example 1,  Example 2,
Example 3  -  we offer the following end time
proposal for your prayerful and exegetical
consideration:
