Do you feel like a candle in the wind? Even worse, do you feel like a candle that is in the storm, and the flame is being extinguished? Do you wonder why you don’t have hope, hope for the future?
The world can whip you up pretty good. It can toss you around like a piece of straw being spun out of control in a vicious storm, only to be violently forced into a tree trunk! Have you heard of such a thing? I’ve seen it, it is possible! A tornado had hit my small home town, and the wind topped 80+ mph. It literally ripped the house next door off the concrete slab it was built on! The wedding of my best friend was taking place, and my mother happened to be coming in the door when the tornado was about to hit, it slammed the screen door so hard that it chopped my mother’s thumb off! She had to have it sewn back on. We walked the streets the next day to see the damages the tornado had done and that’s when we saw it!!! The straw was stuck in the tree! I couldn’t believe my eyes!
The force of nature can do crazy things! Of course, we’re witnessing that take place right now, aren’t we? The world is full of horrendous events happening every day. Super storms, franken-storms! Sinkholes, the size of football fields, earthquakes, volcanoes erupting, and the list gets longer each day.
We’re just a speck in the wind. We feel helpless, and scared what’s going to happen next. Do you feel like that candle about to have the flame extinguished? Wondering what happens when we die? Is this all there is?
Well, I can assure you, although we are in the middle of an invisible warlike storm, there is a reason for everything.
There’s that still small voice inside you calling out….
I had someone recently ask me if there was a hell, then why is GOD sending people, the children HE created there? Why are innocent people suffering? Why is the world in such a state of emergency?
A world out of control. That’s what it feels like until you learn the truth.
People can not take what GOD has made wild and tame it.
The non-believer’s in this world have no hope so they find other replacements. Sexual promiscuity is a big one. Homosexual activities is top of the chart…bisexual, lesbian, and now we have the transgenders…although it’s an act. They should win an award because it’s nothing more than what the others do—fulfilling the lusts of the passions of the flesh. But, soon they begin to find there’s still that empty space that none of it seems to fill.
No amount of violence, cruelty, occult activity, or sexual obsessions can fill the void…you are adrift in an ocean full of darkness. Loneliness, hopelessness, and grasping as straws going 80mph!
You sense it all around us, that abject despair that grips the hearts of people everywhere in the world today.
You can take money and bring all the beautiful architectural achievements and place them all around you, you can gaze in awe at the remarkable sunsets on an island, far away from it all, but your heart is still in the grip of fear, based in hostility, hatred, and superstition.
The world is quickly filling itself with witchcraft, with utter darkness such as we’ve never seen here on this Earth. Its origins are based on death, led by Satan…his children of wrath, separated from Jesus Christ, without hope and without GOD.
This world without GOD:
Desires of the flesh/mind
With hope & faith:
The return of Jesus Christ
The faith of GOD
The hope of GOD
The love of GOD
You must understand that without the hope of Jesus Christ, you will never feel the exceedingly amazing wonder of the grace of GOD. Building up the absolutely incredible hope that you’ve been missing, a hope that is developed by the fantastic truth that Jesus Christ gave up His life so that you could have salvation, all by the grace and glory and the love and the power of GOD.
There’s Only One
There’s only One Path to GOD. But, He can’t come until you ask. Jesus Christ is standing at the door of your torn heart. Asking Him to enter will fill the void, take away the hate and loneliness…filling it with love and hope. Faith is a fickle thing. It’s based on something we can’t see but we must believe. Just like the air that briskly passes over your face, just as the love you feel for a family member, or even your own children…it’s there…awaiting the chance to come out. Trusting Jesus Christ….there’s nothing that’s parallel to this, not in this whole world.
Regardless of how much pain you’ve experienced; regardless of how much sorrow you have…it can be mended.
Your past doesn’t have to define your future.
“Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of GOD. I believe you died on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask You into my life and heart to be my Savior. I want to serve You. Please show me the way. I seek Your Presence. I seek your forgiveness. Please come into my heart and soul. Forgive me of all my sins. Thank You, Jesus for believing in me.”
