God is light: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

I used to live by a body of water that ran east to west.   It was the boat launch,  in Morehead City,  NC.  I would go there to pray,   I was there many early mornings or at dusk.

I began to recognize the line of light or darkness move across the water.   Gradually lighter or darker but progrssive lines of demarcation.  As I looked up you could see it in the clouds also.

I mention this because the light or darkness within us is just as visible.   People can see whether we walk in the light. For example,  the world without Christ.

Isaiah 59:8-10
King James Version (KJV)
The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.  Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.  We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.”

Most of the world is in that condition. There is no Judgement for their sin,  they do not travel on a straight path, there is no truth in them. They know no peace,  they don’t believe there is any. 

Their ways are desolate,  they are DEAD MEN WALKING. . .

This is not The Lords plan.  He would have all come to the light,  He sent His Son,  not to condemn the world,  but that through Him the world  might be saved.  Those who have paid attention and opened their hearts have recognized and excepted the light.

Isaiah 9:2
King James Version (KJV)
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Isaiah 2:5
O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

Those who find the light,  are blessed beyond measure.  We all walked in darkness but now in the light.   Let your light so shine,  that God is Glorified,  Exalted,  Lifted Up,  Praised.

Our lives should draw others to the Lord.  If we walk in the light,  we will.

Psalm 89:15
Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.

Jesus,  the LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Ephesians 5:8
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Thank You Lord,   may Your light shine through me.

a step between me and death. – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

“a step between me and death.”

The words of David to Jonathan,, Sauls son. 

King Saul wanted to kill David but his son Jonathan, loved him.   David was now officially on the run.

We are all just a step away from death.  I  wonder often why am I still alive.  I am vile, unclean, sinful.

Forgiven.

Two Bills and a Mel: The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

WARNING: A STRONG POSSIBILITY SOME WILL BE OFFENDED.  DO NOT READ IF YOUR POLITICS COMES BEFORE THE LORD.

A few years ago Mel Gibson was the rage.  Most handsome,  most desirable. Great story, great actor/director, top of his field.

Then the Spirit of God got ahold of him, he made “The Passion of Christ ” movie.  He was warned not to, “it’ll loose money, alienate fans, ruin  your career. ”

It made him bigger and more loved then ever.  Then his life fell apart.  (He fell from grace)  Everyone turned on him.

How about Bill Cosby,  well respected comedian, actor /director, entertainer.  I  loved him as a child, “Noah” and so many other  great sketches on his albums.

As an adult I enjoyed the Cosby Show, loved the whole family.   What happened?

He stood up and said: “Black youngsters needed to pull up their pants, learn to speak English and work hard.”

He received criticism, that was not enough punishment, stuff hidden for  thirty years, now comes out.  Everyone turned on him.  If he did it, he is a sleeze; but why now?  It’s kind of late, isn’t it?

The other Bill, Bill Clinton.  The titular head of a political party.  Lied to the American people,  accused of several rapes, impeached, disgraced.

He Keeps on keeping on,  Nothing hurts him for long.  Why?  He doesn’t  pretend to be a Godly person, abortion is OK, gay marriage is great, socialism is the plan.

The moral of the stories :

If you try to do the right thing, the good thing, the Godly thing.  The Devil and his minions will push and pull to find your weakness,  (secret sin),   untill they ultimately  destroy your usefulness  for good.

You have to be strong in the Lords love to survive.

How sad when the Righteous have fallen.  There is no mercy from the world for them.

If you believe up is down, wrong is right, black is white.

The world is your oyster. “It’s only sex.” “Everyone lies about sex.”  “His intentions were good.”  “He stands for womens rights.”

Sorry if that offends some. 

That is how it appears to me. 

Lord, save us from the judgment of the world. May we judge righteously, carefully and Godly judgment.   Help us to walk in the light.

Forgive us and turn us toward You.
