Yes our father God loves you dearly.
What are you doing to show your love for our father God?
Are you living a victorious life that only a true child of God can experience?
As one looks at the events happening around the world one thing is obvious.
Time is short.
Yes there is not much time left before Christ returns.
Oh some could say.
What if Christ does not return for another hundred years?
Thatís not that long.
Think about it for a minute.
And to see how much is happening in such a short amount of time is just plain exciting yet there are things taking place that disturbs me greatly.
There are some who once followed God who now live the way the world wants them to.
There are those of us who refuse to give into the ways of the world.
And to look at this naturally it may even seem as if we are out numbered.
We are not outnumbered.
We need not worry of course.
Oh thatís easy.
Because our Father God is our source.
As children of our Father God we know that we are always victorious in Jesus Name.
Yes there are days when it may not look as if we are, but we are.
Now something to keep in mind.
As the time grows shorter the enemyís persistence multiplies.
The devil is not only upset, the devil is scared.
And when you get something upset by lets say trapping it (a wild animal for example.)
This animal is upset and then scared and that can be dangerous unless you are properly equipped and trained to deal with that situation.
We have all the resources needed to be properly equipped and trained for battle against the enemy.
The Word Of God.
And with the knowing of that so many continue to refuse or just plain ignore this.
You can see and do notice the ones who do stand on Godís mighty word and faithfully train daily through prayer and study.
See playtime is over or should I dare say dress up and pretend time is over.
Oh yes I wrote that.
Yes many play dress up each week and yes they pretend to be faithful children of God.
Now dressing up nice for Church or any day of the week is fine.
But be real not generic.
God really created everything.
God really sent His only begotten Son.
Jesus was really born of a virgin.
Jesus really walked the earth.
Jesus was really beaten and denied, rejected and spit upon on.
Jesus really died for us on the Cross.
Jesus really rose three days later and walked the earth sharing our Father Godís love.
With that there should be no excuse for not doing what we have been called to do.
Some say they are waiting for a sign.
Ok what exactly are they waiting to see?
Would seeing the true and faithful children of God take off to fly Home when Jesus returns be enough?
Oh but that would mean.
So whatís it going to be?
