"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever."(Isaiah 40:8)
"The Mayans". 11:11 pm, December 21, 2012 has come and gone and we are still here. If you study the Mayan People, they were a very brilliant group of people, pretty amazing actually. Even though they were a very brilliant group of people, we may have assumed more than they intended. The Word of God is the only word, past, present or future that you can have absolute trust in. It's human nature to over-react to dramatic non-essential things and not react to matters of utmost importance. It's really amazing how many people spent their life savings on doom's day survival kits, special food, special generators, etc... I'm sure the "peddlers of fear" still have plenty survival kits for sale at half-price by now for those of you that wish to stock up for the next "fear scam"! The people that sell the doom's day supplies get richer each time we have a doom's day prediction. (Remember Y2K) If you would simply read the Bible and believe it, just think of the money you could save by not having to buy all this special stuff from the peddlers of FEAR. The saying that "death and taxes are the only two things that are for certain", well lets add a third one to the list. Human nature will for certain do something dramatic in response to fear unless you deliberately tell it not to, every time!! Fear does not come from God!! "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."(2 Timothy 1:7) Power, Love and a Sound Mind are all you need to make a calm, wise decision when faced with fear. The spirt of fear is consuming the minds of people so we must put on the armour of God and stand against it in the evil day. Jesus warned us in the Gospels about this type of doom's day philosophy, where people would say anything to control you by fear. "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."(Matthew 24:11) The next time you hear something that scares you to the point of frantically preparing for some doom's day event, just read your Bible. The Bible clearly outlines the future of the nations, of the world and the followers of Jesus Christ. The real question is, Are you a follower of Jesus Christ? If you do not know Jesus, I urge you to call on Jesus today because He is the Savior of the World. Jesus has taken care of your future so don't get caught up in the spirit of fear, just put your trust in Him!!
