Are You Satisfied? ... I hope not!

Based on a writing by Horatius Bonar in his book "God's Way of Peace"

One might say; "I'm not satisfied with my faith". Of course you aren't! And you never will be... at least I hope not! The Bible doesn't say, "Therefore being satisfied with our faith we have peace with God;" it says, "being justified by faith, we have peace with God."

One might say; "I'm not satisfied with my repentance." That's wonderful! What would you do with your repentance if you were satisfied with it? Would you find peace in your repentance? Would you bring your repentance to God as the payment for your sin instead of the blood of His only acceptable sacrifice,... His Son, Jesus? Oh, what a prideful, self-righteousness person you are if you're satisfied with your repentance and faith! You can never find true peace in your own lousy attempts at repentance or faith. You're only lying to yourself and you're destined to fail if you put any trust in your own abilities to "repent and believe" to God's standards of perfection.

"I'm not satisfied with my ability to love." What do you expect? You can never expect to be satisfied with any grace found in yourself as long as you live! Ask yourself this question; Was it your love for Christ or His love for you that gave you peace when you were saved?

Now then, the only thing that satisfies Almighty God is the Person and work of His Son, Jesus Christ! And He satisfies all of God's demands and requirements entirely!! So it is only with Christ that we should be satisfied... never with ourselves or anything about us! Only when we cease from ALL our labors, and ALL our righteousness, and ENTER INTO HIS REST, will pardon and peace come... and it will come without delay!

A Fool's Experiments

Today is Charles Darwin's Birthday.

Charles Darwin once said...
"I love fools’ experiments. I am always making them."

The Bible says "The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." (Psalm14:1)

Mr. Darwin also said...
"As for a future life, every man must judge for himself between conflicting vague probabilities."

A true statement... but one must also judge the wisdom of neglecting any possible "vague probability" that he will stand guilty before the God who created him and who will judge every liar guilty. Revelation 21:8 puts your "smallest" little white lies in the same category as murder... "all liars will have their part in the lake of fire". It's a death sentence and you are guilty as charged.

Jesus said...

"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

I'm begging you,... Ignore Mr. Darwin's promotion of using a fool's reasoning. There is NO scientific proof for the foolish therory of evolution. There is simple, insurmountable evidence AGAINST it, yet untold millions accept the theory as fact... a giant error that shakes a fist in God's face. In fact, claiming He is not the Creator is calling Him a liar!

The greatest "fool's experiment" is to ignore the claims of the Bible. It claims that God is the Creator, and that there are no "good" people. Do you consider yourself a "good person"? Have you ever told a lie? Then you are guilty of breaking the 4th Commandment of the Law of a loving, perfect, righteous, just God.

Turn to Him today before you have to face Him. Regardless of what your school books claim, He created you and He wants to give you a pardon... He will revoke your death sentence if you will only lay down you arrogant, prideful "reason" and turn around, in simple faith, bowing to His son Jesus Christ as your only hope of salvation.

Charles Darwin's "fools experiments" were actually his rejection of God's promise of Eternal Life for law breakers who bow to Him... and God's promise of Eternal Suffering for law breakers who don't bow to Him. It's too late for Charles Darwin to take back all he said... but I guarantee you he wishes he could.
