4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[a]
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen—
Even the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
‘Modern’ man is plagued by countless problems and egoistic tendencies, one of which is gross alcohol/drug and substance abuse... no-one seems to be able to function at anything anymore without using a BOOSTER!
An energizer is gulped in liters per second to survive the day.
Countless medication is dispensed to numerous people to 'help' them get better or simply be able to go about their daily affairs.
Many are just 'zombies' moving on the streets between work and home, time-bombs waiting to explode, self destruct and harm MANY in their path!
In their private worlds,the belief in various categories of HOW GOD SHOULD BE; this is the confusion of the AGE a part of a WHOLE load of brouhaha…
The mindset of mental calculations in the classification of peoples (within and outside BORDERS!!!); This Schism amongst peoples create huge gulfs of ‘racial’ divide “… and I always thought there was just one human RACE!”
A soggy mass of intellectualism soaked in ignorance, while
Generations pass down a mind-set and the use of myriads of misnomer purposely or ignorantly used to hurt and degrade the next person.
This becomes an instinctive inclination in many; a mindset of assumptions and learned behaviour to simply act out in social environment and relations!
A jaundiced eye of prejudice is used in SEEING like a BLIND person.
Mankind is entrenched in a muddy marsh of addictions, beliefs and extreme wicked ideas, helplessly entrapped in the valley of eternal death; snares set a long time ago by that evil-ONE, to lure, seduce and DRAG everyone(some screaming) with him to the LAKE OF FIRE!
New developments daily reveal this to us all as pandemonium is set loose around the globe and KEY players just simply WORK the work of their FATHER(which?) (knowingly or unknowingly), CIVILISATION, technological awareness and increase in ‘knowledge’ all appear like vanity… 1 the words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2 “Vanity of vanities,” says the Preacher;
“Vanity of vanities, all is vanity.” -Ecclesiastes 1-12
A tirade of harsh and hurtful words has no effect on the most High if you try and blame Him for what has been caused by our collective ego and intectual 'grandiosity'.
The I AM had forewarned about making the right CHOICE … And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. - Joshua 24:15
22 Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him.
23 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
24 And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.”
25 Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly…. Mark 8 (New King James Version)... HE IS THE ANSWER TO SEE MORE CLEARLY!
Ecclesiastes 12 (NKJV)
13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man’s all.
14 For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil.
The preacher in Ecclesiastis learnt WISDOM and realized that which is most benefitial to God's creation, on the long run.
Perhaps you need a second touch by the great healer and deliverer or you simply need him to rescue you from the pangs of death, the jaws of addictions in various forms.
Consumption of what we EAT, drink , smoke, inhale or inject is not the only type, some are deep rooted in ALL forms of addictions of BELIEF… discovered by us personally in a quest to achieve GREAT success or passed down and initiated into by family ties; unquestionable philosophy that you have been told that you should simply believe, adhere to and FOLLOW.
Lately, you are beginning to feel that IT JUST DOESN’T FEEL RIGHT! Try the WORD of truth (The BIBLE) that reveals the purpose of humanity and the eternal bliss that is available with the GOD of PEACE and LOVE but only when YOU make a choice that would draw you close to Him can you be free of DRUGS AND VAIN PHILOSOPHY.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
