Kind Of Like The Matrix

As I sit drinking coffee and looking out the window I think about how cool it's getting in the early mornings. Summer is over and soon it will be Winter, and because of my handicap I'll be spending more time indoors at the computer reaching out to people all over the world with the good news of Jesus Christ, and this is a privilege that I don't deserve, but is given to me by God's grace. I wonder to myself what approach I should use and realize that many will be turned off by what I say, and will think I'm just another "religious nut." But then I remember the good news of Jesus is the word of God, and not just my ravings. As God says in Isaiah 55:10-11 "For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, 11-so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it." The whole world needs forgiveness regardless of social standing, church membership, behavior or other beliefs, and God only accepts faith in his son Jesus for our salvation, and it is a free gift to us. To me it's kind of like the movie "The Matrix" with millions of us walking around without a clue of what reality is. As is said in John 14:6  Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."  Christ promises us that he will never turn anyone away. And as he says in John 20:29  "Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." We all need to come to Christ because he is our savior.

True that -the whole world is deceived -and when God calls us -each in the time he chooses -it is somewhat like (but so much better then) when Neo is freed from the false reality -even in the fact that it is not over at that point -we have to endure to the end.

It is wonderful that you want to share what you have been honored to know.. but realize that God is in control -and is not calling all men in this time -so don't be discouraged if some are not friendly or do not believe. He is only calling the firstfruits now -and some will receive understanding and eternal life later....

Many are saddened to think that some are now "in hell" -but this is not the case -or that those who do not believe before Christ returns are doomed -also not the case -the truth makes sense and is quite wonderful.....

Rev 20:4-6, Rev 5:10, 1 Th 4:16-17, 1 Cor 15:22-26, 1 Cor 3:13-15, Rev 14:4, Rom 8:29, Php 3:21, Isa 45:18
