THE EVERWIDENING CHASM

A thought to ponder

CHASM                              In 2018 the chasm between the Kingdom of LIGHT – God’s Realm

And the Kingdom of Darkness seems to be becoming ever wider.   If you compare the ABSOLUTE HOLINESS of God with the secular, ever rising carnality of this world the chasm seems un-crossable.   Once the Church stood as a gleaming, golden hope filled beacon to draw the secular into the Holy.    This is why I believe there is such a ‘shakeup’ so that only holiness must be seen in the lives of all who would Shepherd God’s People and point them to ‘eternity’.     Thank God that the Way is still clear…….it is now becoming more defined.   Jesus Christ came and died so that His sacrificial death (like a bridge between one Kingdom and another) is the sure pathway to Home.    Now, the TRUTH becomes clearer..    Only those who are ‘born-again’ can enter the Kingdom of Heaven (Jesus’s Words to Nicodemus)”Unless a man is born-again he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.’

Only the ones who come to the Cross in repentance and utter commitment…… loving the Lord with their whole heart, mind and body.   Those who are, ‘covered by the blood of the Covenantal Sacrificial Lamb at Calvary’.  No jumping over with time consuming programs and how to handbooks. These are often helpful but lead not where really.  It seems that we must choose to walk over via the Cross.    Jesus said. “I am the Way’.     (It explains to me why scriptural references….  Luke 18:8 Jesus said ‘When I return will I find much faith upon the Earth?’ suddenly ring true.       The Bride to meet the Bridegroom must be……….ABSOLUTELY HOLY WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE………..

I don’t know about you but I would never make it.        That’s why Only the Cross and His Sacrifice can make the transition possible.

Utter surrender to Him and His finished Work at the Cross and ongoing repentance and close communication. Our God is a RELATIONAL GOD.

All other endeavours will be of no benefit.   It’s not by our ‘works’ though we will do these out of love but only by our FAITH and what Christ has done for us.

What think you?

                                              For this coming week be the Blazing LIGHT…not just a glimmer.

Blessings to each one.

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
