The Night Is Far Spent (Article Three)

The Night Is Far Spent “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” Romans 13:12. MEANING OF CARNAL adjective pertaining to or characterized by the flesh or the body, its passions and appetites; sensual: carnal pleasures. not spiritual; merely human; temporal; worldly: a man of secular, rather carnal, leanings. Reference Source: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/carnal CHAPTER THREE Christian Carnality & A Tidbit Of Thought Christian Carnality: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Romans 8:6. True believers in the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ should naturally want to work for the Lord. True believers should naturally want to live a holy lifestyle that is pleasing to the Almighty God. Sadly some Christians enter a stage of carnality. Backsliding is indeed deadly to a genuine believer spiritually. For one, I can attest to the fact that I had lived in a phase of carnality for a very long time. This doctrine, although biblical, is not how a genuine Christian man or woman should live. A backsliding Christian should, eventually, repent and turn from their sins. The Holy Scriptures teach us that a true believer in Jesus Christ should bear fruit. This fruit indicates one’s conversion. However, a truly converted Christian can backslide and show virtually no fruits for periods that can last a long time. WARNING TO FAULS BELIEVERS This “carnality doctrine” is NOT speaking to those who haven’t sincerely been SAVED by God’s merciful grace. I would dare say that many individuals claiming to be Christians but living in carnality...

The Night Is Far Spent (Article Two)

The Night Is Far Spent “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” Romans 13:12. CHAPTER TWO Depravity of Man, Righteousness Of God, & A Tidbit Of Thought  Depravity of Man: The depravity of humanity shows us that a Divine God exists. Shortly after humankind was “created” by God’s existence, our fallen nature has been waging war against the Creator due to Adam and Eve’s sin against the Almighty. The Book of Genesis backs up the teaching that humanity has ever since been waging war against our beloved Creator. “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Genesis 2:16-17. During man’s first recorded history of our existence, God put Adam and Eve in a perfect utopia. The environment designed in Eden would be in continuous harmony with nature, and all living species, small and large, weak and strong, lived in absolute peace. Jehovah only had one established rule. This rule was simple. “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (17). Before the rebellion started by Adam and Eve, all life served the Lord in absolute harmony, as all life could see God’s love by His willingness to create life on Earth....

The Night Is Far Spent (Article One)

TITLE: THE NIGHT IS FAR SPENT ARTICLE: VOLUME ONE “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” Romans 13:12. INTRODUCTION: If an individual truly loves someone, they will desire not to want to hurt them. This love can only be sincere by individuals willing to speak the truth to build a lasting friendship. If such individuals are eager, to tell the truth, it is possible to desire a genuine friendship with such a company. Therefore, let’s talk about truth and not deceit, as this article seeks friendship with those who desperately need truth. I pray that whoever is reading this article (Article One) is willing to consider the contexts herein. This article will inform readers of one purpose. That purpose is to provide ABSOLUTE TRUTH. The truth one needs is to be given is the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ. The day is at hand; many will perish, simply because “THEY” who refused to listen with open ears will spend an eternity in God’s judgment for refusing to submit to God’s teachings, which He gave to humanity generations ago. The Holy Scriptures, the Bible, is indeed the ABSOLUTE TRUTH provided to humanity to understand how the beginning started (Genesis) and how humankind’s ending will play out in the final days (Revelation). CHAPTER ONE Earth, Space, Reproductive Systems, Man’s Increased Knowledge, & A Tidbit Of Thought Many so-called modern-day skeptics of Christianity claim to have a so-called vast knowledge of how life’s origins started. These same skeptics refuse even to...

A Day’s Wages

“And when He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, Come and see. So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.”  Revelation 6:5-6   “And when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.”  Matthew 20:2   There are many places in the world where men will work for daily food and the most basic housing.  Oftentimes there simply is not enough money to provide adequate nutrition, education, clothing and suitable housing.  Yet in many countries the opposite is true.    While there are many who complain about the unfairness of the world economic system, in many countries adequate food can be obtained, as well as a better quality of the necessities that each individual desires.  Then there are countries like the United States, large portions of Europe, portions of Asia, Australia and Canada where food only becomes a lack of choice, due to finances, not a lack of availability.    As an American, understanding the system well, the focus will be with the United States in mind regarding this prophecy that will be fulfilled during the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), which will begin after the Rapture (1 Thes. 4:16-17).    Reflecting about the global pandemic, as well as now a rumor...

Intolerance Towards God

“For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is clearly recognized by them, for God has revealed it to them.  For ever since the creation of the world the unseen things of Him are clearly perceived, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they know God, they do not glorify Him as God, nor are thankful, but become vain in their reasonings, and their stupid hearts are darkened.  Professing to be wise, they become foolish, and change the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.  Therefore God also gives them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who change the truth of God into the lie, and fear and serve the created things more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.  For this reason God gives them up to vile passions. For even their women change the natural use for what is contrary to nature.  Likewise also the men, abandoning the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another, men with men performing what is shameful, and receiving the retribution within themselves, the penalty which is fitting for their error.  And even as they do not like to have God in their full true knowledge, God gives them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things...

We All Die

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, and after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, without sin, unto salvation.”  Hebrews 9:27-28   “And many of those sleeping in the earth’s dust shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to reproach and everlasting abhorrence.”  Daniel 12:2   “And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away. And there was found no place for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books.  And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one, according to their works.  And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.”  Revelation 20:11-15   One can make many observations, especially as one gets older in regards to the consequences of sin.  Many reflections can an individual have on his or her life, let alone see the scars of sin on our society in general.    The other day I stopped at a roadside park with a nice...
