The World Is In a Mess

We are living in a time when the world seems to be falling apart. Mankind has tried so many different things, among them education, League of Nations, United Nations to try to bring understanding to man.

There is nothing more important than our spiritual life, no matter how much we gain in this world, or how great we become, we always reach the end of the road. Remember that we must keep the truth and avoid a lie. A lie is the truth perverted; all sin is righteousness perverted.

There is only one Creator and that is God. The only way we can ever have eternal life is to live as God commands us.

You can’t take creeds and isms and hammer them into you. You can’t take some other dogma and mix it with the word of God and expect God to honour the mixture. God won’t mix with anything perverted.

Something took place in Sodom when immorality was on the increase. They built cities, but they refused God’s word, were extremely sexually immoral, and the city fell apart. It is the same today, “As it was in the days of Sodom and Noah, so shall it be in the coming of the Son of man”, said Jesus. When the Son of man came to the Jews, the world was in a mess, politics and corruption in religion was at its peak. The Jews were following the law and making their traditions above it. When Jesus came as a representative, God accepted the reconciliation that he made by his life and his death 0n the cross.

When you ask a brother, ‘Are you a Christian?’ the answer is, Yes. ‘Why?’ – ‘I break bread every Sunday.’ Are we playing a system? A life is what is important for human beings: the life of Christ. How can you hold on to Christ and yet hold to worldly forms? God will not save the world by reorganising its organizations. He will dissolve them and replace them with a Divine theocracy. God has promised to supply our needs not our wants. People always want things and we want them in their own way. That is what brings about the mess.

I believe Jesus will be coming again to save his true church. “The time will come when men will be heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures, more than lovers of God, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, despisers of those that are good, traitors, high-minded” (2 Timothy 3). Do not rely on any system or anybody else. Do not rely on any general supports, welfare funds. Get on with God and God alone, until your life is changed and you become truly a new creature in Christ. God will take care provided we do our part in our own lives.

We must get back to the full truth of the word. God is set apart from the world and He wants His people to live apart with Him. He wants children obedient to His word. He can place His word in us: Jesus said, “If you abide in me, and my words in you, then ask what you will and I will grant it”. So when you want to know where the secret lies, it is in the word of God. And through the word of God, the world was reconciled to God. But if we involve our lives in worldly pleasures, then we shouldn’t expect anything good from God. Brothers and Sisters, let us wake up and shake our consciences about the hour we are living in, for it is a serious hour.

Just remember this: we are in the end time. Education, materialism and worldly pleasures have taken the place of salvation.

There is a true church. There is a church that is waiting for the coming of the Lord. It is just for those who are foreordained. The world to come depends on where we put your treasure. Be an example of the true man, the true woman, the true Christian. Live the life that is right.

Lord Jesus, help me to be true until you come. Let me take my stand and stay there, Lord. We are looking for your Kingdom, that cannot be moved.
