God’s Servant

So many times I have wanted to be more of His than I am and it is difficult to consider what it would take to be that close to God. The fifty-third chapter of Isaiah tells of the Servant of the Lord who went through agony and pain for Him and even though it is in the “Old Testament” it is speaking clearly of Jesus Christ. God loves each of us because He put each molecule of our being together before we were born. Lovingly crafting His children, even though some would not accept Him, because their gifts and abilities would be useful in this world. Some would not be useful to Him but they would be useful in the world that they lived in. Discovering cures or treatments or ways of doing things that others might not think of, would be their gift.

Being a servant of God is a calling. It is not something that you choose to do on your own. Just as accepting the call of God in your life to be a preacher, being a servant of God is something that is serious. Although, many people don’t seem to look at becoming a Christian as a calling that is exactly what it is. You wouldn’t be looking for Jesus if He had not called you by touching your heart and letting you know that the part of you that feels empty needs Him to fill it.

All Christians are called by God to become followers of Jesus, so it truly is a calling. Living your life by that calling every day is not an easy task but with His Holy Spirit touching your heart and strengthening you it can be done. Though it may not be perfect, since we are human, you can live it every day because of His strength and His grace in your life. I pray that everyone who reads this will seek Jesus to become their Savior soon because the time for the church age is coming to a close. We don’t know the day or the hour so be sure you are ready when that Trumpet sounds.


In the days that we are living through, what gives you hope? Religion? A good job? Financial security? Hope is a commodity that is rare and hard to find today. We all say that we have it but what is our “hope” based on? What or who is your hope placed in or on?

The only true hope that any of us have is in Jesus Christ. Many of us place our hope in things or in our jobs but those are only temporary. Whether you believe in God or the Bible, there is an eternity waiting for each of us. We don’t just go “poof” when we die! Our soul goes somewhere and it lives on. Not believing in it doesn’t change it at all. Just like “not believing in gravity” won’t stop it from killing you if you fall from a great height.

Eternity is our reward for living our lives according to God’s will for our lives. Even if we don’t live according to His will, eternity is still ahead of us whether we experience it in heaven or hell. The world around us is ignoring everything that has been spoken of and foretold in the Bible and going on as if nothing will change. But one day soon that will change in the blink of an eye. Of course, they will come up with some “explanation” for the disappearance of everyone who believes in Jesus as their Savior but it won’t be one that has anything to do with Him.

Jesus is the only person in history that has had as much influence on the entire world and yet three-quarters of the population on Earth refuses to believe in Him. Why? Because of the influence of the false religions that are all over the Earth and the one who has had the most influence on religion…the devil himself. Conveniently, most people in the world also choose not to believe in his existence as well.

One day soon, all of this “non-belief” will be moot and the proof will be very visible to everyone. Whether they believe their own eyes at that point or not won’t make much difference. I pray that most will put two and two together before it is too late.

Life as we know it…

Life is coming to an end. Not in general, like all over the Earth, but we will die one day. So how can we get past that? Truthfully, nobody gets past it. If you don’t believe the Bible, then you will find out precisely what happens and where you will go on that day. Most people don’t like to talk about “end-of-life” issues. They would rather talk about anything else but what may happen at the end. The problem with that is that we don’t know when the end of our life will be. It could be tonight or tomorrow or this weekend or next year. But…it will come.

Granted, the end of the world will happen as well but each of us has an expiration date and we don’t know what day that may be. For some, it is when they are young. For others, they could live to be almost a century old. The time that we are living in, which is the prelude to the Tribulation, will not last very much longer.

Prophecy from the Bible says that what we are experiencing with these wars and conflicts everywhere and the weather events around the world is just the beginning of the “birth pains” leading up to the Tribulation. We don’t know the exact date that it will happen except that the church will be taken up to be with Jesus before the Anti-Christ shows up. God knows the hour and the day, we will find out when the trumpet sounds and we are taken up. Then…the whole world will realize that the Bible and its prophecies are true.

Our trip will not be visual like this representation. It will be more like being transported except it will be instantaneous. The dead in Christ will be taken first and then those of us who are alive will simply disappear from wherever they are. In a car or a plane or at home, everyone who belongs to Jesus will be taken from wherever they are. I pray that whoever reads this will be part of that group.
