Only In Heaven



As much as we all would love to complain, fuss, gossip or talk about it, agree or disagree, the world we live in will never be perfect. There will always be demons, devils, criminals,cheaters, liars, thieves and people that try to get over. Yes there will always be people that enjoy doing the wrong thing and it doesn't matter if they are rich or poor. Many of us may want to ask ourselves or others why do people keep on doing the wrong thing, its just a fact of life and those who aren't aware of this fact has or were sheltered by their family or are being unrealistic. That's why it always amuses me when people complain or talk about the latest news, crime, ask questions about a persons behavior and talk about how that person may have misbehaved. But if some of us, picked up our Bibles, then we will realize that what's happening today's time, is already written. God has given us an advance warning that very soon, that his son Jesus Christ will return. What's happening in the world today shouldn't surprise any of us and if any of us seek a world without crime or disaster all one has to do is glance into the sky.Why? Because my friend that type of world ,happens to be only in Heaven.

I know some of you may ask, well Charles what am I suppose to do when I see or hear of all this awful news? Am I suppose to be scared or worried? Should I be concerned or surprised when something bad happens in the world or when some people do the unthinkable? My answer to that is simple no, just trust in the Lord and get your house in order. Which means don't be concerned about others because when the son of God comes back only you will be judged for your actions or sins. Don't fall in love with the things of this world and don't allow it to steal your joy, instead live your life according to Gods will. Yes even those who live their life according to Gods word will be tested and some may be judged or talked about because of it. (John 15:18 "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.) Remember this if they lied or talked about Jesus, then they shall do the same to the believer, so don't be discouraged. (John 17:14 I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world.) God our Father in Heaven takes care of his own and if one seeks a world where there is no crime, stress , pain or one without imperfections', well my brother or sister that world only exist, only in Heaven.
Have a blessed day,
Charles
1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.
James 4:4 You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

  1. 2 Tim. 3:1-8 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. I would say these scriptures covers all that you talked about Charles which results in evil actions. In these days and times, I'm not surprised at the things I hear but I ask the Lord to prepare me for what's to come and that I will be able to deal with them through his word and direction of his spirit. --Lynette
