I think heaven weeps and all hell rejoices when we mortal temporary creations debate and focus our energy of proving our view of The Divine Alpha and Omega over someone else’s. When we or “the god of MORE” tells us that we are right and our mission is to get others to see things our way instead of love them with His Eternal, Perfect and Unconditional Love.
“Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” – Matthew 24:12-14
What made Jesus different?
What made Jesus stand out from all the many mini-messiahs that had come before and since?
Why do people still follow Him, seek Him and why are they still drawn to Him?
Jesus for the first and only time in history taught, lived and breathed a Very Different God and a Very Different Messiah! Jesus came to show The God Who would go to Any extremes to Love you!
Religion says “come to me and do what I tell you” but Jesus said, “come to me and I will give you rest” All the work to make you All you are supposed to be was “Finished” on the cross because His blood “Finished” it! Now Rest in this FaithFull fact!
So what is wickedness? Wickedness is us focused on our own wants, our own desires, our own rights and “rightness and our own pain Instead of “loving one another” and being focused on our neighbors needs.
The world since the beginning has been on a collision course with its own destruction and as we argue, bicker and focus on converting instead of Loving like He did, we will get ever closer to the end.
Solution: Focus on “love one another“, Rest in His Love for us and know that His Grace IS Sufficient for us!
