Fear Or Faith  -  Lies And Power  -  Who Will Win?

Hello and Good day - do we have any reason for hope?

And if so a hope in what - and in whom?

Well may I suggest a hope in Christ and his atonement, resurrection and life eternal etc.

This battle between good and evil between truth and lies, between light and darkness -

It has no beginning and it has no end - it is as eternal as God is -

But there is hope - it has been foretold - Jesus Christ - will be the Lord of Lords - the King of Kings etc.

He came as a God among men, died on a cross and was resurrected!

It looked like - the world had won, but they had not - the powers of darkness had failed again!

Light and truth when we obey it, will always win over lies and deceit - for they are easy to do but the power to be true and faithful - in times of trouble and sorrow - this is not easy - but it is the ONLY way to eternal life and eternal glory... it is the way to Godliness - holiness and Perfection ---

It is the hard way - it is the best way and it is the only way to eternal greatness -

To sin, to lie, to cheat, to steal, to do evil - this is easy - that is quick but that is death - in an eternal way - for in it there is no real glory, power or dominion - just suffering and gloom - lower light and lower happiness. No one going down this path of sin - can reach the heights of perfection and glory - nor can they over come all things, nor can they be one in Glory - with God -

To many - we see only here and now - they sell them selves short, they give in to lessor things, and in the end they end up with lessor things - for we can only be rewarded according to our faith and diligence in higher righteousness -

When all is said and done - we will only reap - what we have sown!

How profound and how just -

The way is laid out for us in truth, in light and in righteousness, but only we can choose what we will do in times of trouble and strife - in the day or the night - in pleasure or in pain - how will we react? How will we help and serve when we are hurting? - when we are suffering?

Godliness, does not come in a day or in one choice or one action but in progress, and submission to a higher light and laws - only by submission, to a greater truth and light - will bring about a more glorified being etc.!

The only begotten said "Thy will be done - oh Father and not mine" also "forgive them - they know not what they do" he also said "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you"

Yes - how well do we understand his will and submit ourselves to it?

For the kingdom of God is with in us - each of us - but, it has to be drawn out - and perfected over time!

So why do we choose to follow the Son of God?

What good will become of it?

Well - that all depends on our faith and repentance etc. Doesn't it?

Do the things ye have seen me do etc.

There is a much deeper meaning for the celebration of the Birth of Jesus - the Christ -

More than the Gifts, more then they buying and selling of things - that is just the foolishness and greed of the world - it has so little to do with - why we are here, and what will become of us - because of what Christ did for us - he freed us from sin, and the fall - by shedding of his own blood, and because of his own righteousness - for he never sinned - and was the first fruits of them that slept! etc.

Now what are we going to do with that most wonderful - of all gifts?

Waste it, or increase its blessings? Well - that all depends upon our choices and our life.

For we are free to choose this day - eternal life or eternal damnation etc.

Why does his birth and life mean so much or so little to us?

Again there is a reason for this season - do you know what it is?

Merry "Christ" - mas - and a Happy New Year!
