1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time
I was reminded today of just how awesome and mighty our God is. When I look down the road to the future of this country, and this world, I simply don’t see much hope. When I look down the road to the future of my own life however, I see great hope, because of the birth, the life, the death and the resurrection, of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I realized today, that everything that has happened throughout human history, from Adam and Eve, throughout the Old Testament, the New Testament and up to the present day, was preplanned and orchestrated by the will and by the hand of God. I also realized that all future events of human history, will also be controlled and orchestrated by God himself. God has left nothing to chance and he is in complete and total control. The birth, the life, the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ, had always been a part of God’s great plan to reconcile mankind to himself since before the foundation of the earth. In Old Testament times God put a stop to the building of the Tower of Babble, which was an attempt by the elite at that time to influence, manipulate, exploit, and control the masses. Today, we see satellites, computers, and cell phone towers, being used by the elite for the same purpose. It occurred to me that what we see happening today, shows that human nature is much like electricity. Electricity will always take the path of least resistance. Human nature also has a tendency to take the path of less resistance. Like a mouse that always heads for the free cheese in a trap. This is why we see so many people heading down the wide path that leads to destruction, rather than the narrow path that leads to eternal life. What we see happening today is that people, more and more, are placing their faith and trust in governments than in God. They are trusting governments to provide for their needs instead of God. The world is headed towards, what George Bush senior, referred to as, a New World order. Or in other words, a one world government. This of course, could set the stage for the antichrist, and everything that is described in the book of Revelations. It is not my intent to be a doomsday forecaster, for just like God did not allow the building of the Tower of Babble, he may not allow the advent of the information age, brought on by advances in technology which is being used by the elite to influence and control people, to succeed. In either case there is a remedy to all this however, and that is to turn off your electronic devices, and turn your attention to the Holy Bible, and place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ to provide for all your needs. So if you don’t see much hope for this vile and corrupt world, because of what we see going on today, then accepting Christ into your heart will not only fill you with hope and happiness today and the remainder of your days, but it will also guarantee peace, happiness, joy and contentment in the life to come. Praise the holy name of Jesus!
From where I sit I see hope,
Hope for a more abundant life.
Hope that spurs my spirit on,
Hope because He paid the price.
May I share His hope with you,
His hope that heals the hurt and pain.
His hope that lifts my spirits high,
Like flowers rejoicing in the rain.
Hope is a precious gift from God,
Sent to us as truth and light.
Jesus is the reason for my hope,
He leads me through the darkest night.
When life is hard and I’m afraid,
And question my ability to even cope.
I bow my head and thank the Lord,
For this precious gift called hope.
