Truth is Narrow

Narrow Path

Truth is quite narrow. It is true that 1+1=2. All other answers are false. There can be millions of wrong answers and there is only one right answer.

Similarly, Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus is the only way to life. He’s the only right answer.

Enter ye in by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many are they that enter in thereby. For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it.

While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us

2000 years ago, we had the most precious thing to ever come into this earth in our reach. What did we do with it? We killed him. Jesus came down to earth, healed the sick, made the lame able to walk again, gave sight to the blind, freed men from the hold of demons. Jesus who “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

Darker Times are Coming

While this coronavirus/world power grab have been terrible, it does not compare with the dark times that are coming. God said that there would be a time there would be worldwide judgement again, not by flood this time, but by fire. The Book of Revelation spells out what will be happening. This time will be so bad, that the Bible says that men's hearts will fail them for fear of what is coming.

No Fear

World is looking pretty dark. Iran. Earthquakes. Everyone dying of cancer. Volcanoes. Pedophiles everywhere making no child safe.

For me, I have hope. I read the book and Jesus wins in the end. Jesus is my strength and my stong tower. He hides me under the wings like eagles’ wings. He is my protection with each step I take, each day. He is my hope and my salvation.

When God is for you, what is there to fear? If I die, I am with Him. If I face troubles, He is with me.

God is Good

I was driving a truck kinda like the one in the picture, with temporary mudflaps strapped on the back. I'd had a lot of problems and was rather late delivering the truck, and the people really wanted it that day, so I was trying to hurry. Along the way I looked in my mirrors and saw that one of the mudflaps was starting to come off, and was blowing around in the wind a lot. I didn't want to get pulled over for a missing mudflap, and said a prayer in passing, "Oh please, Lord, don't let that mudflap fall off until I get to my delivery." I still had about 200 miles to go.

Children in Cages

I listened to the testimony of a woman who had been sex trafficked as a child, and had been subjected to torture/mind control. She spoke of how she was raped when 6 years old by people like Richard Nixon. She was taken to Bohemian Grove and raped by Billy Graham. Her life was an unimaginable horror before Jesus saved her out of it.

Hating God

I used to hate God. It's hard to say why I was so mad at Him. He hadn't done anything to me. It's like I blamed all the bad things that happen in this world on Him. So I hated Him. I denied his existence, which didn't make any sense why I should hate this person that didn't exist.

While I was in this state, someone prayed for me. Someone shared the news that I was headed for hell. They also shared the news that though I was a sinner, Jesus the Christ died in my place, rose from the dead on the third day, and now I can have everlasting life when I put my trust in Him.

I love the Utah Jazz

I love the Utah Jazz. It's great watching Ricky Rubio drive to the hoop, or those lobs to Rudy. I love seeing Joe Ingles get under the other team's skin. I loved how they shut down that Hardin guy. It's all a lot of fun, and very exciting to watch.

But reflecting on the end of the year,, these guys put in so much effort to win. Even if they won everything, won the championship, what does it mean? You can achieve fame and fortune, but what have you really accomplished of lasting significance?

On Christian Reincarnation

A man I met said that he was a Christian and he also believed in reincarnation.  Hopefully I can state his case for this faithfully.  He said that he liked reincarnation as an explanation of why bad things happen to good people.   The main example from the Bible he used were the verses that "you reap what you sow."  He also gave the example of Elijah being reborn as John the Baptist.  He said that Jesus was a reincarnation of Adam, and was paying for the sins of Adam.    He thought that people got  ~10 lives, and then that was it.
