“For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.” (Jer. 2:13)

(A cistern was a drinking water tank)

They went after a substitute for God.

This can be in the worldly or spiritual sense: money, fame and sex can be just as much an idol as a religious statue can.

And religious activity can also become an idol, a substitute for God.

How many things in modern life are substitutes for God?

The LORD said, “They have forsaken me”.

They replaced Him.

And in doing so they no longer could drink at the fountain of living water. They were trying to drink from a supply of their own making.

And if you don’t drink the living water then you have no life.

“Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” (John 4:10)

“…having condemnation because they have cast off their first faith.”

1 Timothy 5:12

“…What I believe isn’t what’s important—it’s what the Word of God says that matters.”

— Franklin Graham

“Deliver those who are drawn toward death, And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.”

Proverbs 24:11

……

Those who caused suffering in times past are now, themselves, suffering a measure of that suffering they inflicted on others, under God’s perfect justice.

……

“But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33)

We take it to mean, then, that if we don’t seek first His Kingdom and righteousness then these things we need won’t be added to us.

A promise like this takes on a whole new perspective in a time of famine or financial collapse.

“Seek first” means our top priority in life.

To “seek” the Kingdom means a perpetual position of the heart which desires to know Him more and do His will as an instrument of the King, as His servant or emissary, and as a “royal priesthood” making intercession for the people.

When people gaze at the wonderful pics of deep space some may wonder about whether there’s aliens out there, while others might be in wonder about the Person who created it all.

“The heavens declare His righteousness, And all the peoples see His glory.”

(Psalm 97:6)

Is there life on other planets?

Some general comments:

  • If God created life on other planets then one thing is certain, and that is they will be destroyed at the same time this earth is destroyed, and then remade.
  • UFOs and reported alien life forms are either angels or demons.
  • The present growing interest in UFOs and aliens is due to demonic influence.
  • Some scientists desperately want life to exist elsewhere, and it seems like their motivation, at least in part, is that they think this would prove the Bible wrong.

Yet, even if they found life elsewhere it wouldn’t prove anything concerning the Bible because the Bible does not mention such a thing.

“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.” (Revelation 21:1)

“Heaven” here means the universe.

So, if there is life on other planets they will go the same way as life on this planet goes, because the whole universe is going to be replaced.

Scripture is silent on whether life exists elsewhere.

But if it does, their days are numbered, as it is for those here on earth.

“If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.”

1 Peter 4:15

……

When Jesus returns everything changes, forever. The sinful aspects of this present world will be gone and totally forgotten in His eternal Kingdom. You will not be able to find it there. The stuff which hypnotizes and enslaves the masses has no future.

“…Building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit…” (Jude 1:20)

Many have assumed that “praying in the Holy Spirit” means only praying in an unknown language, but that’s ridiculous, because that would mean when you are praying in your own language you are not praying in the Holy Spirit, and then, if you’re not praying in the Holy Spirit you must be praying in the flesh: just with your own mind, with no guidance of the Holy Spirit?

So, obviously, when we pray in either a known or unknown language we are praying in the Holy Spirit if indeed it is the Holy Spirit inspiring and guiding our prayers into fulfilling the will of God.

So, the text tells us that prayer should be done in the Holy Spirit and not without Him, and that such prayer builds us up in our faith, strengthening our faith.

……

To glorify God is the ultimate, because for this reason He created us, and it’s only through this truth we can know Him and enjoy and be fulfilled in Him forever.

……

Live true to your faith. If you believe Jesus Christ rose from the dead, then you know what to do.

…..

“How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek the honor that comes from the only God?”

John 5:44

……

What score out of ten would we get for character?

…..

Everyone needs to get saved.

…..

The pain an unborn baby experiences as it is dismembered is the same as you would experience if someone tried to dismember you.

It’s utterly barbaric.

…..

It would be very foolish to underestimate anything Jesus said.

…..

The only certainty is the word of God.

…..

“But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

1 Corinthians 2:9

…..

Cultural Christians are not born again, do not have the Holy Spirit in them, and their Christianity is limited to an exercise in appeasing their conscience. A person can be quite outwardly religious or spiritual, yet it might be simply futile efforts to appease a guilty conscience and justify oneself, like a mouse on a treadmill.

Now… who really cares about cultural Christians?

Who really cares that they’re lost?

Who is interceding for them and bringing the truth to them?

……

The love of Christ is the greatest thing in the universe.

……

“…If anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.”

(1 Corinthians 8:3)

Glory!!! Hallelujah!!!!

…..

Why would you greet a person on their religious festival if you don’t believe in it?

Wouldn’t that make you a hypocrite, if you’re pretending that it is true just to please them?

If you want to express goodwill to someone it’s better to choose a non-hypocritical way to do it.

…..

Everyone has some degree of vanity, that is, everyone except Jesus.

…..

A mature Christian is a person in which the truth has shaped and influenced every aspect of who they are and how they live.

…..

A prayer life is not meant to be a substitute for working, but it is does make the difference between us doing the King’s work or doing our own work.

…..

If you’ve read what Jesus taught about Heaven and Hell, have you given any thought about how you personally will escape going to Hell?

……

The trick of modern entertainment and music is to make something meaningless appear to have meaning.

……

The ultimate delusion is if a person is happy without God.

……

True Shepherds:

  • Don’t want your honor, titles or praise.
  • Don’t want your money.
  • Don’t want to tell you what to do.
  • Don’t want to control your personal life or time.

They only want you to grow closer to the LORD every day.
