One step to knowing where evil is at is by stopping it in its tracks before it begins. Research. Ask God/Jesus. Do not just blindly do things because society says that it is ok.
(This is what I just put on Facebook and I wanted to share it with my readers)
Halloween is a bad day. Anyone who is claiming Christianity, do some research before participating. Don’t just take part because the churches have “safe trick or treating.” There is a bigger meaning to it than just costumes and candy. Ask God/Jesus, do whatever you need to do, but do not blindly take part in seasonal customs because society tells you that it doesn’t mean anything. Think twice. It is how evil has so ingrained itself in our world because we have been led like dumb little sheep to accept things slowly. We have conformed. And what are we called to do? Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
People act like the rapture will never happen or that Jesus coming back is something in the far future ahead of our life time. What if Jesus came back tomorrow? Would you be ready? Have you repented of your sins? No one knows the day or hour, but we are supposed to live like Jesus could come back at any moment! Are you living that way? Are you taking part in activities that would make Him happy if He appeared right now? Pay attention to the time. Look at what is happening in the world and then open up your Bibles!
Here is a really good summary of what Salvation is. I have not screened the whole site, but the Home page pretty much sums up what I was working on this morning.
Matthew 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only…” We don’t know when Jesus will return, so lets live like it is going to be tomorrow every single day of our life. He could return tonight or tomorrow, are you prepared for His return?
I just heard a really amazing quote from a Watchman that belongs to Jesus. “Jesus died for you in Public, so do not live for Him in private.”
(Just because the world says something is right does not mean it is. A lot of people calling a “wrong” as “right” does not make that wrong-right.)
Romans 12: 1-2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
