STRANDED IN THE DESERT OF THIS LIFE…

In case you don’t know this, don’t believe this, or haven’t even thought about it… which is highly likely, because our modern culture is so ‘Social Media, spur-of-the-moment, sound byte / video oriented’… that you might not of considered this & missed it… you’re life in this body is temporary… Originally human life was not made to be temporary, but things happened, changing God’s plan… Each of us was born, and whether we acknowlege it or not… we are born into a world of systems… systems of law and order… and systems of chaos, either can prevail in our world…without the needed law and order, we deteriorate in chaos… These are the two choices, whether we like it or not…

Wow, there is so much to say, where do I begin?…. I guess in a lot of ways it doesn’t matter, because ‘you’ are either going to be behind where I begin, or right where I begin, or way ahead of where I begin… Or  you’re not gonna be able to understand anything that I say at all, because you are of a natural mind, and I need you to be of a ‘spiritual revelation mind’ which can only come from knowing God… Otherwise you might as well be banging your head up against a stone wall… So knowing this, I will take the chance and try to elaborate anyway… And please understand that I’m not trying to make something special of myself, because I’m very humble, but I do realize the difference between a natural and spiritual mind… And there is a barrier that exists because of this difference..

NOW, Where was I?…. Sense what happened in the ‘Garden of Eden’ ‘happened‘… God has been pleading with humanity… He wants us to understand that it was He who gave us life…’No one else could have made / given this miracle’… Though we find ourselves looking to aliens and other kinds of explanations for our existence…. such as Evolution…. Blah blah blah… and the like…God is the giver of life… Funny thing about human beings, whether we want to admit it or not,  & I think most of us know deep down in our hearts ‘what the real deal is’… But for reasons, some known and some unknown, we can’t bring ourselves to admit it, because there are spiritual forces all around us, ( good & bad ) and if you’re not aware of them, the bad ones will deceive you and get the best of you…. and possibly cause you to deny things that are truly in your heart..

So let’s get around to it…. God gave us life, He gave us a home, it’s called Earth, we were originally made to live forever, but we got duped by Satan, and unfortunately got caught up in the ancient and continuing struggle between God and the devil, good and evil, life-and-death itself…

NOTE: In God’s Word, history shows that God is number one, and Satan is number 2… Funny how number two always thinks he should be number one… Such is the case between God and Satan… Satan being created after the ‘perfect pattern’ according  to God… After all and  in case we overlook it, Satan is a ‘created being’… But… ‘pride’ was found in him, and he tried to overthrow God… [Revelation 12]… God would have none of it, and exiled Satan to this earth… Where he ( Satan) continues to challenge God and His creation, see, a main part of his tactics is to destroy God’s creation & ‘the human race’… Which is Satan’s worse nightmare, because he knows ( Satan knows scripture) that through the human race, the Christ child would be born and rise to defeat him…”He will crush your head & you shall bruise His heel”…

Through Satan’s deception, and our partaking of the ‘Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil… Our eyes were opened…( Satan claiming that God was withholding something from us… And he, Satan had opened our eyes…( This is a deep study in itself)… Making us like God knowing good and evil…

So getting down to what Jesus has actually done for us…( Being aware  that He spoke the whole world into existence, came into his creation, was rejected by his people and his creation…  He willingly gave his life, as a sacrifice, once and for all, so that we could be right with the Father, and qualify for eternity)…

Metaphorically speaking… Jesus jumped in the water to save us… Jesus didn’t drive by and leave you stranded in the ‘desert that is this life’… He stopped and picked you and me up, He took us to the 7 -11 for a cold drink & something to eat ( this is comically over simplified)… Then if you choose Him, He  will give you an eternal drink of Himself, so that where He is, you will be also..

If you’re wondering what God the Father is like, and what perfect love is, look no farther than Jesus… Though there be many things that you don’t understand in this life… you will in the next…littleraventhepoet.blog………….Frank Payton…

My Prayer… Thank you Father for making me, and knowing  / developing my heart… Thank you for giving me gifts at my salvation… Thank you, though I knew very little, only 2 weeks after my salvation, you appeared at a prayer meeting, and it felt as if oil was poured on top of my head, or a cloth was dropped over top of me… And I learned shortly thereafter, that there was your presence, and your acknowledging my acceptance of You, and the imparting of my gifts of evangelism & witnessing… Thank you for teaching me that my words are of little import, and Yours are of great / eternal importance… Continue to mold me into the man you want me to be… Thank you for loving me ‘warts n all’…as I am one ugly toad… and have failed you in so many ways… Yet your long suffering and tender mercy’s towards me, are astounding…
