Jesus, word and work, a stark reality or fantasy...?

In the stark war on the lies and the dissimulation of the world, we fight to keep the truth real and not a figment of the imagination of some men or man. We turn to Acts 12:6-10,

["... 6 And when Herod was about to bring him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and guards before the door kept the prison.

7 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shined in the cell: and he smote Peter on the side, and awoke him, saying, Rise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

8 And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And he did so. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me.

9 And he went out, and followed; and he knew not that it was true which was done by the angel, but thought he saw a vision.

10 And when they were past the first and the second guard, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth into the city; which opened to them of its own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and straightway the angel departed from him...]

And Peter when the angel appeared to him in jail and delivered him out of jail and he thought he was perhaps seeing a vision. And we can be tempted just the same to perhaps fall into a trance and be like we said tempted that perhaps it is not all real. That the work of Jesus is not complete. That there is really no devil and his emmissaries at work. And that perhaps that the word of God is revalent to mean what is convernient at the time or time in history. And we forget that our sins are real offenses to God. And that there is no hell or damnation, just a scare tactic of some moralist men of some sort...

And we begin to believe that man is not all evil and that if we work on our wrongs long enought that it will all be fine somewhere in oblivioun death world. And the work of the Devil is to put us to sleep on the reality of what is really at stake. A couple of drinks and we can laugh it off for the night with this Jesus business. And we even believe there is indeed no real Devil or power at work in the world. In this matter we may fall into a denial of everything we ever learned to be true about our nature, and the work of God on our behalf...

And it can happen to anyone. The gospel of denial is already at work with concepts that deny the truth and replace it with fables of men who contrive on what is plaucible to the fallen flesh...

May you have a good day...

Beautifully put!

We must each carefully cherish and guard the truth as revealed in Scripture.

I just launched Fire Breathing Christian on 8/31/09 as a Christian perspective blog site. It can be found at, not surprisingly, http://firebreathingchristian.com.

Please feel free to swing on by and check it out.

Thanks again for sharing and have a great day!

Soli Deo Gloria!

Thank you 'one' for your open minded comment and response. And I think that it is a valid conjecture to ask ' where's the beef...!?" The evidence! When I want to talk to my mother on the phone. I call her to talk it out with her!

Do you have what it takes to make the call to heaven and talk it out with the Creator? It's scientific. We send probes into space sending signal to see if anyone answers! Make the call. Say this, "You who ever you call yourself, I really need to talk to you. There are many claiming you sent them and saying things without proof. I don't like it. I want evidence and proof! Send me sign that is with question only a super being would be able to do! I will pick the test! So be expecting another call outlining what I want you to do for me! Good? Ok? Chow!"

So prove it to yourself and if it doen't happen call me...a liar! I cannot prove God anyother way tangible, other than the marvel of all creation and the wonderful things he does for us all the time...Good luck!

May God help you heed...

Love

JLOTW
