MAT 10:29-30, Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore, do not fear; you are of more value than many sparrows.
So, through Prophecy, through the Bible, through Nature, through the Heavens…GOD has reached out to mankind. Throughout HIS Story.
GEN 1:14, Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;”
PSA 8:3-4, When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him?
All of that, the Lord just created, and it cost HIM nothing. Yet to save you and I from eternal damnation, it cost HIM HIS SON, a part of HIM.
At some point in our life we all wonder the same thing Saul was probably thinking: What is this ongoing story that we find ourselves in?
What sort of a story have we been swept into, born into? Whose the author? Why are we in it and what does it all mean?
You don’t get to know—you have to travel that road a block at a time, a mile at a time. But as a believer you do get to travel that road with the ONE who does know how it all turns out. Sometime HE actually carries you.
Yesterday is gone, Tomorrow is not yet here, so live Today as the gift it is intended to be.
Don’t let a day go by mad over silly things…because remember, you cannot get that day back.
If there is meaning to this life…to this story, then why do the days seem so random and so meaningless for so many?
The Hero knew what He had to do and He wasn’t afraid to do it, even if He had to die in doing it.
The Hero knew what He had to do and He wasn’t afraid to do it, even if He had to die in doing it. Why? Because he did what He did for love. For those He loved.
Every story, great and small, shares the same essential structure because every story we write or tell borrows at least a part of its script from a larger story, THE STORY…you see it is the story that is woven into our very being.
Christianity is the story of Salvation, the story of mans’ reconciliation with the creator and it is the only thing that can fill the void within man, for it was God Himself who created the void and thus…it is a Christ shaped void and only He can fill it.
True Christianity tells us that we were created by the creator of all, and we are here to live the story that HE has written for us. The story that we are to be a part of and as soldiers in Christ we are offered as big of a role in that story as we are willing to take through our free will.
From the moment the Lord Jesus Christ spoke and universe leapt into existence the stars have been telling the story of the Gospel, the good news of the Savior that is the story of the universe.
The background is the fall of Satan, his sentence to the Lake of Fire, and Satan’s appeal of the sentence. God granted him an appeal trial. Witnesses were needed for the trial, and man was created to resolve the pre-historic angelic conflict. When man fell, the Lord promised a Savior to pay for the sins of the world.
It comes as no surprise that Satan, from earliest times, has created lies and half-truths to obscure, hide and deny the witness of the Star Gospel, which has been known since the time of Adam.
The true signs of the stars are not evil, but Satan’s version of them is. Astrology is Satan’s counterfeit for life guidance.
