Message From The Chaplain
Time To Pray
mixed up world of ours. But how do you know God
is real, and cares about you? Great question.
Suppose I pose it to you like this: if God is
Omniscient (i.e., All-Knowing), Omnipotent (i.e., All
Powerful), and Omnipresent (i.e., Ever-present),
then serve Him without fear or hesitation, as noted
in Psalm 29:4, Psalm 144:3, and Genesis 3:8. If He is
not as so described, then do not serve Him. But you
know as well that failure to love and serve the Lord
means you’re serving Satan (e.g., Devil, Lucifer,
Beelzebub, Prince of the Power of the Air),
according to His Word, the Bible. You cannot serve
There’s going to be a time when it’ll come down to one thing: who are you really????
By that I mean: where do you stand—or fall—when it comes to your walk of faith with Jesus? Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t know Him enough to get that cozy with Him, huh? Well, why don’t I acquaint you with someone who truly knows who and what you are, God Himself.
If you are a disciple of Christ, a Christian, or respond to any number of epithets related to your belief in the Lord, you’ll be just fine, as the Lord revealed in John 16:33. I’m really trying to squeeze a Word (i.e., the Bible) in edgewise to those Lincoln Post 3 Nebraska Legionnaires who find themselves on the back end of a front-end loader, so-to-speak, with no apparent way to get back in the driver’s seat. But you say you like being dragged around the world because you’ve been told…unfortunately…that it’s the way to go to be…successful..?!?! Ya got’ta take yo knocks they told ja, huh?
So what’s next?
If God IS who and what His Word, the Bible, say He is, then you’ve got all you need to make it in this
two masters (Matthew 6:24).
Ssssssoooooo….What’s it gon’na be? Continue to stumble in the dark while the world trips you at every corner, feeding you lies and false hopes, and no deliverance from your anxieties..except with alcohol, illicit drugs, and sex. You’ve tried those avenues, but found them wonting, huh? Then return to the Lord Jesus as your ONLY hope of long life, prosperity, and inner joy. Become counted among those who WILL meet the Lord during the Parousia (Greek for the Rapture), while others shake their fists at God and face eternal damnation (1 Thessalonians 4:15).
Do the better thing. Walk with the Lord. Yes, He is bringing condemnation upon the world, and particularly to America, for our denying our first love—Jesus—who helped this once great nation rise to prominence and send missionaries with the Gospel around the world (Matthew 28:19). How much longer are you going to allow others to destroy us? Love the Lord, so He may show you how to be angry, yet not sin (i.e., combating evil your way). When you walk as a disciple of the Lord, no one can stop you from telling others what they need to hear.
