As the end is to come... to the present system of things.
« on: Sat Nov 19, 2016 - 15:58:57 »
Having left the life of the world to accepting Christ to rule and Govern my life, roads on His path have become more and more difficult as the end is to come to the present system of things.  Instead of becoming more 'sure' in Christ, it seems as if I have become more 'unsure' of everything.  And so this is my mistake since noone has led me into wrong paths.  Although I have done nothing wrong 'in my own estimation' and although I have prayed often times for this to go away, the road keeps getting dimmer and dimmer. 

It is either the end of my life as I know it or it is of something I don't know about.   And yet, the pains and deaths which occur within me each day tells me that I am either on the right path or on the wrong. 

Call me crazy...   Call me delusional... Call me schizophrenic.. 

It really doesn't matter too much since there are more important things going on in this world.  I know I am of worth to God and so I keep in there.   I'm not saying I need sympathy or pity.  I may not need anything at all since the road already seems to have been given to me.  All I have to do is remain on it. 

And point and fact is, I am not strong enough on my own to even remain a Christian. 

Maybe the next 'phase' in Christ is to let go and let the wind take me whichever way IT desires...

God is about the ETERNAL, not about the temporary.  God is about the Good, not about the 'eek' of things.  God is about the things which are Good, not about the things which are damaging.  God is about The things of The Light, not about the things of the dark.  With God in control, noone should have any reason to fear or be discouraged.  For the one whom The Lord loves, HE chastens.  And without God's chastening, we are illegitimate children.   

So with God, it is all about the Good things in life and in The New Life.

I don't know if you are still around and using this account, but I understand completely how you feel. I am usually a pretty upbeat person but since the election, I have become more and more worried and depressed and sometimes just not wanting to go out of the house. I feel disconnected sometimes from people I love and that is the worst part. I can see bad things coming and am worried if I am strong enough to endure it. I worry if I am in the right place spiritually.  Thank you for saying what you've said and for being honest about how you feel.

Luke 19:10  For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
Luke 19:11  And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
Luke 19:12  He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
Luke 19:13  And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

Jesus wants us to not live like those whom He is addressing here.   And, He does not want us to be like the church at Thessalonica (Millerites of their day).   

The Jews expected Jesus to set up His political kingdom during His first advent.  That was not His purpose. He has told us to occupy until He comes again.  Like the servants we have all been equipped to do His work and to rest in Him (faith) until His second advent.    Don't let others, including Christians who are busybodies who want to focus on everything but Him, take your eyes from Him.

Many have believed the lies of the false prophets who speak a false Christ since they started stealing the words from God's servants who started testifying to the knowledge of Christ 2,000 years ago. Now the earth is filled with false prophets who have never heard the voice of the Lord. They use false gospels to try fill their churches and collect tithes and offerings so they can make a good living for doing nothing but lie to their congregations.
