All of us seek to look for life fulfillment where it will never be found. But that temptation haunts us every day of our lives. We major on horizontal focus rather than on vertical most of the time and we even ask creation to be our Savior and through it find fulfillment. But that is another illusion.
I think Paul David Tripp has it down very clearly the way we do such things. Notice his list, which of course is not exhaustive, but illustrates my point:
- We attach our identity to the respect of another.
- We draw too much of our sense of well-being from our physical appearance.
- We think material possessions have the power to make us happy.
- We attach our meaning and purpose to our achievements.
- We ask our jobs to make us content.
- We try to base our identity on our children.
- We attach our sense of spiritual well-being to the “perfect” church.
- We base our identity on our education.
- We ask our spouses to make us happy.
- We look to food and drink to satisfy and calm us.
- We continually say, “If only I had _________, then my life would be ______.
- We attach our identity to the luxury of our cars, or the affluence of our neighborhoods.
All of those things are not evil or wrong, but rather God has designed them to POINT us toward Him rather than to the creation itself. He is the ONLY ONE who can provide us with Life and that more abundantly. Signs are to point you to something else besides the sign.
So, all good things such as situations, locations, possessions, relationships, achievements, and creation which is beautiful, are blesings given by God alone, for those things can never give you what you need. Note John 14:6:
“I AM the way, the truth and the life”, Jesus said. So, we need to stop searching when the needs is already here and we need to look for it no where else for it isn’t there. Read also Psalm 115.
As we live today especially considering those of us in the United States of America, we are finding that there are many of our foundational values in our culture are falling apart. We are at a crossroad which if certain things do not happen today (January 6, 2021), our nation will become another Marxist Socialist nation politically speaking, and that means, all of the values, morals and ethics we previously held will disappear.
As a Christ follower and ones who know Him as Savior and Lord, we also know that no political system or person in politics is our Savior. Government of any type will not suffice and supply to our hearts that which we long for at all. They are powerless in that field for they are products of this world system.
Having stated that, God does use people and help them develop systems in the Governmental affairs which are Godly and moral. Not being perfect, our nations policies and Constitutional Government based upon a Republic rather than a Democracy is a better form of Government for the people than any that exists on planet earth today. Yet, the enemies of morality and God and Christ, have been working hard over the last 100 years in the USA to tear down this Republic. Marxist educators had infiltrated the schools and taught their dogma slowly but surely to students for several generations.
I contend that the results of the voting that takes place this very day reflects that they have made great advancements in brainwashing the people of America to accept and go along with Marxism to a great degree. However, the majority of people living here still uphold a lot of the principles that are taught in our Constitution and Bill of Rights, but the controlling people in places of Government are the children of the Marxist Educators and their influence is now beginning to flesh out more strongly as we see full blown Marxist elected to offices.
Georgia for instance elected a Marxist black licensed minister of a so called Baptist? church to be in the Senate of the USA! That speaks real bad on two fronts: 1. A Baptist and Christian would NEVER endorse what this man endorses. 2. The Constitution and Bill of Rights which he will swear to uphold stand totally against what this man believes. We are now more in danger as a people in losing our precious freedoms and move closer to being under a dictatorial slave type leadership in our Government. More on the order of Russia, China, Iran or other type non freedom governments.
I argue that what is taking place is ordained by God Himself, and is NO accident, and NO chance happening. It is orchestrated totally by God alone! If God allows the evil spirit of Satan and his demons to control the spirits of those in the USA to vote wrongly and against good sound judgment etc., then God has some strong High purposes He is putting into place which can be found spoken about in the scriptures regarding the Last Days.
Some points God has shared with us concerning the last days are: 1. The world will seek to unite as one and be under the control of people who preach and establish a one world type government which is led by anti-Christ type people, and eventually One special Anti-Christ person and a False Religious leader Anti-Christ individual. Note the black so called Baptist Christian in Georgia who is a Marxist and could in now way Biblically be considered a Christian is a case in point! He is a type of what God speaks of as the False Prophet in the last day when Christ comes back and brings judgment upon this world.
The USA was one of the last nations on earth to have such a Republic which endorses Christian ethics and morals and freedoms as we have them. So the ONE world Religion and One world Political system is growing stronger as I write this article.
I sense that the Judge (God our Christ Jesus) is at the door! He perhaps is standing up from His seat at the Throne of the Father and preparing to come back and execute Divine judgment upon the people of this earth and its leaders. He will cown down and literally burn up and crush all of the wicked people and Satan and his demons for sure, casting them into hell and then makes a totally new earth and heaven where dwells only good and righteousness, being our King and Lord over all of His people who will be with Him.
These proud, arrogant, lying, self promoted leaders who think they are something, should be trembling in their shoes rather than being delighted they won a political race. Our God is a consuming fire and their sinful souls and unbelief will send them right into the pit of hell fire and damnation.
It is sad, but I pray, for God to grant mercy and grace to all and bring about a great spiritual revival and bring many of these to repentance and faith in Christ Jesus who is the only ONE who can save, the Only one who can provide peace, security, joy, satisfaction, stability and complete contentment to any living soul! Cry out to Him for mercy and pray for His saving grace in Christ Jesus escaping the wrath of God to come!!
