One Day… I will ‘Wake Up’
and Ask this Question:

Will what I do today
“Really Matter”?

 

Will Anything I Do Today ‘Really Matter?’ 

Will I seriously matter to Anyone Today? My Best Friend? My Family? My neighbor? My World? If I don’t seriously believe my life matters today, chances are—it probably won’t.

As such, I probably won’t act in any way that will make it matter either!

My own belief will become a self-fulfilling prophecy—that I don’t matter. If I get self-absorbed today, like I did yesterday, I know I won’t make a difference that will benefit a single soul out there. Can you relate to what I am saying?

Have you ever done something that brought a powerful positive permanent change that you know will benefit others for eternity?

Have you seen the hand of God deliver, heal, restore, or set free (yourself OR others) from lies, bondage, addiction, suicide, psychosis, mental phobia, or some serious evil behavior? (Have you ever experienced the Gift of Repentance, OR successfully shared the gift of repentance with another?)

If you have you will never forget the experience.

 

Will an evil deed last Forever?

Every time you or I do evil, we affect countless others. Every time we resist evil, we affect countless others–both seen and unseen.

Just one lie, one small piece of gossip, one word of innuendo, one act of slander, can travel farther, spread deeper, and do more damage, 100 years of being truthful. (If you doubt this see: Genesis 3:1-4.)

Once a lie, a mocking word, a slight of the tongue, a word of ridicule about God, His Word, His Kingdom, his Chosen One, His perfection, is permitted to pass over your lips, there is no telling the damage that it can do, and the ripple effect through which you may impact someone, or many people for eternity.

 

Do Good Deeds Last Forever?

When you have God’s treasure in your soul, you will experience an inner Life no one can ever steal from you, ever. And the very fact that you have known this Life, makes you want to reach out and experience it more and more, as well as, over and over again. When you do, your Life takes on a meaning that goes far beyond your self-absorbed vain ambitions. Can you relate to what I am saying?

Yes, you may have traveled far and wide. Experienced many pleasures, accomplished many goals, have letters behind your name, received many trophies and awards. You may have been showered with the accolades of men’s praise. You may have had articles written about you, but what do they matter? Especially when we begin to contemplate ETERNITY?

The Power of Choice

Though we all have our own lives, our own bodies, our own mind, we would do well to remind ourselves of these precious Gems and Jewels that bring us Light, Life, Strength, and Hope on a daily basis:

  1. I AM NOT AN ACCIDENT. (Genesis 1 & 2)
  2. I AM fearfully and wonderfully DESIGNED. (I know that full well!) (Psalm 139)
  3. God Himself made me and gave me my LIFE so the I could KNOW HIM and SHARE HIM with others.  (John 17:3, Jeremiah 1:5, Isaiah 44)
  4. I AM a walking, talking, living, breathing MIRACLE OF GOD.
  5. I AM here for a short time for a DIVINELY INSPIRED PURPOSE!

 

Psalms 139:13-16 (HCSB) 13 For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You because I have been remarkably
[a.k.a. fearfully] and wonderfully made.
Your works are wonderful,
and I know this very well.
15 My bones were not hidden from You
when I was made in secret,
when I was formed in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless;
all my days were written in Your book and planned
before a single one of them began …

 

Isaiah 44:2-3 (KJV) Thus saith the LORD that made thee,
and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee;
Fear not, O Jacob, my servant;
and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.
3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty,
and floods upon the dry ground:
I will pour my spirit upon thy seed,
and my blessing upon thine offspring …

 

 

What is your Mission?

Personally, I want to complete and fulfill my heavenly orchestrated mission before I leave this planet, but how can I do so, if I don’t even know why I was Created?

Before I can accomplish my mission: I must know what that mission is. I must hold God’s Truths near and dear to my heart, and grasp them with all my soul. I must never let them go. They are Gems and Jewels that will shine out loudly for eternity, if I let them. But if I bury them in the sand, what good will they do me, or anyone else for that matter.

 

 

Are Your Gems and Jewels worth Keeping?

What’s the Difference between letting God’s Glorious Gems fall through your fingers, and Securing Them as Your Heavenly Sacred Treasure?

What will happen if you have a boat load of treasure, but you don’t know you have it? Or you don’t think it is of any value? What will happen if someone lies to you, in order to steal your treasure and you believe them? 

Do you not believe there are many liars that would love to steal your treasure?

Do you not know that there is an entire network of liars and thieves, hooligans and knaves, scoundrels and brutes, that are like internationally organized criminals, trying to steal your identity. They are invisibly connected working behind the scenes day and night to rob you of your glorious heavenly treasure and your spiritual wealth and inheritance?

They are all working overtime: to distract your eyes from the glorious eternal, and focus your eyes on the glittering temporal. They flirt with you daily, and molest you nightly. Have you not felt them? Have you not fought them?

They have one goal: to rob you of all the that is valuable and ever lasting, to rip you off of everything you have that is of infinite worth, and to sell you cheap crap to take its place. Cheap crap that will rust, rot, and burn and turn to ashes and dust on the One Day that Truly Matters.

 

Have You Prepared for
Your Glorious Graduation?

Do you not know? Have you not heard? You have a day of graduation prepared for you. A day of celebration like no other day in the history of the Universe. A Day of infinite Value, and Permanent Placement, either for Glory, or for Horror. 

This is the Day where everything of a permanent and infinite nature will be decided.

  • There is one who would rob you of you inheritance on that day.
  • There is One who would grant your eternal choice on that day.

Everything depends on your own mind: What you decide for yourself will become your eternal and permanent infinite decision, BUT, your decision will be made long before that day comes. In fact, your decision will be made right here, and right now.

Every choice you make, every word you speak, every deed you do, will determine your infinite future, everything is being recorded and written down in the eternal books, nothing will be missing from your record.

What will be recorded in your record? What eternal fruits? What heavenly values? What eternal exploits will be recorded? Will your crimes against Heaven’s Laws be erased? Will your acts of violence to the kingdom of God be forgiven? Will your new Life and New Nature be recorded? OR, will the works of darkness of the old man be recorded? Will the values and laws of the old life (the worldly conniving), the works and words of darkness, sin, and rebellion to God be front and center on your record?

According to God, “Today is the Day of Salvation.” Today is the time to make your decision. Today is the only chance of promise you have. Tomorrow is not promised. If you do make no decision now, then the chance of making it in the future diminishes ten-fold. Every day you wait, is like a new millstone being hung around your neck, sapping your strength, stealing your mind, robbing your heart, pillaging your soul, draining you of the power to choose. Every delayed decision is a weakened decision.

If you know the right thing to do NOW, and do it not, then you betray yourself, and your future, and your life–you betray your friends and your family and rob them of the real you, and the real World of Eternal Living. Delaying any wise choice is not advisable. Delaying the most important decision in your life, is not only not wise, in fact, it is foolish, dangerous, and perilous. 

On the day that everything is revealed, it will be recorded, everything you have done was motivated by Following the One from Above, or the one from below. And where your choices lie, that is where you eternal future will lie as well, permanently.

 

 

The choice is yours and your alone:

  1. Cheap glittering crap, that will rust, rot, and be ruined in an instant, burned into ashes and swept into a pit of death. OR…
  2. Heavenly Gems and Jewels, Vessels of Gold and Silver, infinite Treasures, refined in the Fire, coming forth as pure and clean, (undefiled by the World of Darkness, selfishness, lies, and perverse motives) a lasting treasure to be enjoyed forever.

That is the decision on the Table. That is the decision that is recorded in the Books of Heaven–everyday reflecting what you believe and choose to follow right this minute. That is the eternal turning point that will make or break your future eternal inheritance.

 

So we must ask:

What am I doing today
To store up Treasure in Heaven?

What are you doing right now to make an eternal difference not only in your own life, but int he Life of your best friend, your school mates, your work mates, your family and relatives, your parents and children, your nieces and nephews, your neighbors and even the stranger on the street? 

Do you have treasure? Do you have Gems and Jewels fit for eternity to share with those around you? Are you liberal with your treasure, or do you hoard it, or bury it in the sand?

Will the master return on the Day of Accounting and speaking boldly on your behalf:

    “Well done, my good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

Will He endorse your work and your faith and your Life of Blessing and Praise unto His Name? OR … Will He have another opinion, another bold, yet not so comforting, nor encouraging, nor redeeming Word to speak with you?

    “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. 28 “‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. 29 For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”    Matthew 25:26-30 (NIV)

 

The Choice to embrace your treasure or to let it fly away is a simple one.

Chances are you don’t may know about this, and the truth has been obscured and hidden from you.

This is a tragedy, but it doesn’t need to remain so. You can redeem the treasure. You can still redeem the short time your have left to put your treasure to good use.

To actually bring your treasure out of the darkness into the Light, so that everyone you know can see it and benefit from it. The bolder, the brighter you let it shine the more good you can allow it to do.

OR

You can, as has been mentioned, let your treasure be taken from you, allow it to slip through you fingers, allow it to become garbage on the ground, just something else to trample on.

 

  1. Your Treasure can be: Stolen before you even know you have it.                                               OR
  2. Your Treasure can be: A) Kept Safe, B) Build You Up, C) Supply You with every needed RESOURCE: Strength, Hope, Faith, Vision, Power, Grace and Truth (and Forgiveness) to overcome any obstacle that would hinder you on your way. 

What will make the difference between the above 2 Options?

 

The Difference is Simple:

Do You Know Him?

When you know him: the One who cleansed the lepers; the One who relieved the suffering of the demon possessed with a word; who made the lame walk, the blind see, and the deaf hear, and the mute speak; who made the foolish wise, and the wise foolish; who humbled the proud, and exalted the humble; who made the rich poor, and the poor rich. He confounded the high and lofty exposing their folly–he turned their light into darkness. He made the the lowly and simple his noble true governors, revealing their light, their truth, their virtue (in Him), and their enormous generosity–turning Darkness into LIGHT–everywhere they went, in every way their could, becoming exactly like their Master, LORD, Saviour, Redeemer, Healer, and King.

Every way and every where He went, He turned the world upside down, and it has never been the same since He came.

Want to see what the World was like before He came: See the Woman who Stopped Evil.

 

The question remains, has He Turned Your World Upside Down?

 

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have The Light of Life.                   ~ John 8:12 (KJV) 

 

If you don’t know him, you won’t know his Path, his Resources, his Light, or his Life. In essence, as far as the kingdom of God is concerned, you will be without HIS LIGHT, and lost in your way.

 

Is Your Life “Good Enough” as it is?

Please Note: This present Life (right now) is Good’ in Many Ways (but it is not nearly as nearly as Good as God designed it to be).

  • Why? Because God designed our world to be “Good” from “the Beginning,” but still there is so much evil, so much darkness, and so much destruction.
  • Why? Because man, and the rulers of men, have turned their backs on the Ways of the God of Light & Life, and have turned over their hearts and minds to embrace the ways of Death and Darkness. Men pursue greed, selfishness, power, fame, fortune, and sinful wicked pleasure. Men are addicted to violence, vanity, idolatry, and every kind of pride and selfish ambition.
  • Why? Because the (current/temporary ruler of this world) Satan  offers men pleasures and addictions, that bring men into bondage and into slavery to sin, and finally, the ultimate death—the Lake of Fire.
  • Why? Because Satan hates all mankind and wants God to destroy them. So Satan tempts men to sin, as he himself has sinned, in order to set others up for the same judgment Satan will receive on the Day God Judges the World and everyone in it on the Day of Wrath–when every man and woman will receive what he or she has earned.

Note: The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Now the Question remains: Do you Know Him? Does He Know You? Do You BEAR His FRUIT? Do you example His LIFE? Do you share His Treasure? Do you possess His Gems and Jewels?

 

 

Have you found the Pearl of Great Price?

As such men have filled the World with Evil. If you doubt this even for a second–just read the news for a minute. The evidence is beyond deniability.

If you choose not to believe the obvious, then you literally choose to sit in the hot seat, possibly for eternity—something I would highly recommend you do not do.

And it all goes back to what you believe. Which is also based on who you are choosing to believe. If you believe on the One who came for one purpose, and that purpose was to love you forever. Then you will enjoy that relationship forever. 

If you choose to believe the one who came to rob you of your eternal inheritance, and make you a slave to your selfish nature then you will have to live with that relationship forever. God has not made it difficult for you to decide. In fact, I believe He has made it as pure and simple as He possibly could. 

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be [exposed and] reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.    ~John 3:18-21

 

Have you Sold Everything to buy that Pearl?

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Matthew 13:45-46 (KJV) 

Selling everything is a sign that you are ALL IN! Once that decision is made a whole chain of events will predictably begin to unravel, both pleasant and also unpleasant. You will be loved by One, and hated by many. 

 

Dear Friend,

Is this road easy? No. Is it narrow? Yes. Is it full of trials and tribulations? Yes. (But so is the wide road that leads to destruction!) There is no guarantee that you will be happy and enthusiastic every day of your journey, but if you know the One who is the Source of all Happiness—you are be off to a good start.

The truth is, you are going to face “pain and suffering”  no matter which road you choose. The big difference is this: Will that pain and suffering be temporary or will it be permanent and infinite in the end?

When you hold His Heavenly Gems in your heart, you set yourself up to walk in a  POWERFUL LIFE full of Grace and Truth–receiving heavenly resources to meet your every need. This allows you to walk in the Light, where he resides. Know this: His Life and His Light know no limits.

“This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”                  ~ 1 John 1:5-7 (KJV) 

But …

When you let these gems fall through your fingers you become a victim of robbery, theft, lies, harm, fear, doubt, anxiety, confusion, depression, disillusion, and abuse. This allows the enemy to abuse you, and harm you, and rob you, and ultimately to Destroy YOU, stealing your eternal inheritance provided for you through the Blood Covenant of God.

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”         ~ John 10:10 (KJV) 

When you hold on to your gems even through all your trials, testings, temptations, and persecutions, you shall receive a reward that no man can offer you, and no man can take from you. Again, the difference between holding on and letting go is knowing HIM!

“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?”      ~ John 11:25-26 (KJV) 

 

If you don’t know about Him, you won’t know about:

  1. Your eternal inheritance provided freely to you (forgiveness included)
  2. Your incredible rich heritage in God
  3. Your position of Honor & Glory the Enemy wants to Steal from you.
  4. Your destruction, the Enemy has deceitfully prepared for you

Before you completely let go of you Heavenly Gems–Please consider this: 1) The Time is Short! 2) Your days are numbered, 3) You have a short window of time to make a radical change, 4) The Darkness is coming when no man can work. 5) You can defeat your demons. 6) The Angels will help you. 7) It will be all worth the effort, when you see the eternal difference you have made in countless lives that were influenced by your word and your ways, not to mention your own salvation.

In other words, God has provided every tool you need to defeat your enemy, all you need to do is accept the tools, the gifts, the callings, the wisdom, the laws, the freedom, the faith and the power that He will provide to anyone willing to learn from Him.

Remember: No man knows the exact day or hour that his life will end, nor when he will stand before God and give an accounting of every deed he has done, every word he has spoken, every lie he has proclaimed. Today is the day of Mercy. Tomorrow is the Day of Judgement. 

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.            ~ Hebrews 9:27-28 (KJV) 

 

Are you looking for Him? 

Do You See Him?

If you do, you will be in a good place!

 

One Final question:

Why are so many people so at odds with God?

I suppose that is because we live in two different worlds, God’s place of residence is eternal, never ending, and infinite. It is also pure and holy, without sin, evil, death, or any kind of iniquity.

The World God designed, created and maintains at the moment for us to live in, is a temporal place.  It is a short lived, finite world. It is going to end soon, and then it will melt in a fervent heat. (See below for details.)

Between now–this very minute, and the last day on Earth, God is waiting to see if we will respond to His Call. If we will consider His invitation. Will we accept our place and position in His Kingdom? If we will embrace our treasure, and discover His True Value and His True Worth, even as we will discover our own true value and the worth and price He has paid for us and all of our family–The Highest Price paid for anything in the Universe. 

Everything God does and says, has a specific purpose and design, and a concrete objective. He wants us to understand:  He has prepared a far better place, far more beautiful, far more incredible, far beyond our current imagination or capacity to even see or believe, we can only grasp it by faith.

It is His Kingdom where He Dwells. There, no more lies will be told, no more murders will be committed, no more: rape, theft, adultery, executions. No more: mental, emotional, verbal, physical or spiritual abuse. No more: witchcraft, wars, threats, violence, child abuse, incest, pedophilia. No more: demon possessions, sexual impurity, drug addictions, alcoholism, drunk driving killings. No more: sickness, disease depression, epidemics, STD’s, abortions, natural disasters, extortion, fraud, market manipulation, greed, selfishness, vanity, idolatry, perversions, miscommunications, no more slavery, nor sex trafficking. No more hunger, thirst, heat or cold, no more lack. No more fear, doubt, envy, insecurity, pride, worry, anxiety, depression, confusion, disillusion. This will all end with this age, and the World in this age. It will soon be no more.

Those who are ready, those who have prepared themselves (not like the foolish virgins {Matthew 25}, or the man who hid his golden talent in the sand), they will enter into a whole new reality—just has God has promised. Soon His reality will be our reality, and everything will begin to make perfect sense. Until that day, we can only look into a mirror darkly, but soon the mirror will be removed and we shall see God face to face.

2 Peter 3:10-12 (KJV) 10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

On that day, may you and I be found faithful and grateful, praising Him for the grace to be forgiven, and the love that makes us acceptable, and draws us deep into his heart, and makes us beautiful in Him.

 

May we walk along with King David the writer of Psalm 24, that we may ascend the Mountain of God together …

Psalms 24 (KJV) 
The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof;
the world, and they that dwell therein.
2 For he hath founded it upon the seas,
and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD?
or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;
who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity,
nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD,
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him,
that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors;
and the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
the LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates;
even lift them up, ye everlasting doors;
and the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
