Don't Waste Your Time On Shallow Things
By David J. Stewart | July 2017
90:9b and 12, "...we spend our years as a tale that is told. ... So teach
us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
We live in an information generation. I heard a good statement by a preacher years ago that I never forgot. He said, when entertainment becomes god, God has to become entertaining to be worshipped. I think there's a lot of truth to that statement. Many people today are on data overload! If we are not careful, our mind and heart can become consumed by daily news, trifle stories, media gossip, idle jabbering and petty information. Proverb 18:1, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.”
I promote Mark Dice's YouTube channel, but hardly watch it anymore myself, because it's just a big waste of my time. Mark's videos are nothing more than a cheap form of entertainment. Please don't misunderstand, I think Mark's a good guy. I recommend his many educational books (I've bought quite a few myself), which are very insightful. Mark is a gifted public speaker, but I have better things to do with my time than learn of all the goofy things that the media does, Hollywood's hypocrisy or watch Americans make fools of themselves. Of course, Mark makes money from his YouTube channel, so he's just giving small minds what they want, to increase his revenues. I'm not criticizing Mark, I just have better things to do with my time! Small minds are preoccupied with small things. Mark is smart, from a worldly perspective, making money off of lame-brain YouTube viewers. If he weren't making money, Mark would never waste his time making the videos that he does. It's really pathetic, and a sign of the times, what people's minds are attracted to. The most ridiculous, repulsive and petty of things receive the public's utmost attention. It is a shame!!!
May I say, you won't become in 5 years what you decide to be, you'll become what you decide to be around. Proverb 13:20, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” Jeremiah 5:5, “I will get me unto the great men, and will speak unto them; for they have known the way of the LORD, and the judgment of their God: but these have altogether broken the yoke, and burst the bonds.” If you spend all your time listening to shallow people and lame things on the internet, you will become a lame and shallow person! If you search the Scriptures, you'll become wiser! If you listen to hard Bible-preaching, you will become a better Christian! If you read you'll become more knowledgeable. Listening to music may inspire you, but it won't change you. Preaching will change you, by getting you to think differently. We all need Bible-preaching!
How To Please God
I listened to a wonderful MP3 sermon today by one of my favorite preachers, Pastor Jeff Owens. The sermon is titled, “HOW TO PLEASE GOD.” Dr. Owens says this is how Enoch pleased God, and how we can also please God...
- WALK WITH GOD
- HAVE FAITH IN GOD
- TALK ABOUT GOD
That is beautiful. My friend, be transparent about your faith. Don't ever be ashamed to let the whole world know that you are a Christian. I boldly tell people... I AM A CHRISTIAN!!! I have nothing to be reluctant or ashamed of. I want everyone to know that I belong to Jesus, and He belongs to me, and I am saved. I wear this John 3:16 cap everywhere I go. It also has the precious name of Jesus embroidered onto the back. I wear the black hat, but there is also pink for you ladies. (I always like wearing my hat backwards, or maybe my head is backwards...lol) The John 3:16 hat serves a three-fold purpose—It lets other's know that I am a Christian, and it also constantly reminds me that I am one, and it covers my bald head...lol.
I believe one of the ways that we please God is by honoring Him with our time. Most people sit around watching TV, playing with their electronic gizmos, reading magazines, stuffing their face, idolizing sports, video games, hobbies, et cetera; but they hardly spend any time walking with God. God deserves our best!!! Yet, we give Him so little of what He justly deserves. Every blessing that we have came from God above. There are 86,400 seconds in each day, have we thanked God with just one of those seconds?
Our Time Belongs to God, So We Ought to Use it Wisely
Psalms 90:9b and 12, “...we spend our years as a tale that is told. ... So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
My friend, the very moment that you become a born-again believer, you became God's property. When you go to work, God is your Boss. If you are an employee, God is your employer. If you are the company owner, God is your Master. If you are a slave, God is your Master. If you are a master (slave owner), God is your Master. If you are a Christian, you belong to God, you have been bought with a price (and that price is the precious blood of Jesus). 1st Corinthians 6:20, “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” When you give to God, you are merely letting go of what is already His. When you give your time to God, you are merely giving the Lord back what already belongs to Him. With this great truth in mind, it ought to be abundantly clear why we should redeem the time and apply our hearts unto wisdom. Life is so short! Today could be the last day of our time here on earth. As Psalms 90:9 teaches, the years of our life is as a tale that is told. Literally, in eternity our past life will be displayed before the judgment throne of God, and we will all behold a living episode of “THIS WAS YOUR LIFE!!!” Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
Jesus foretold in Matthew 12:36, “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” God is keeping records, books (Revelation 20:12-15), from which all men will be judged one day. God will reward every Christian for even giving a cup of water in His name or a disciple's name (Matthew 10:42). God doesn't miss anything! The Lord sees our every thought. He knows our motives. The Lord cannot be deceived.
I could write a large book on the subject, but I don't need to. I strongly advise anyone reading this article to use your time wisely. I'm not against listening to music, but the average person spends 13 years of their life listening to music. The average person has been listening to the same secular music thousands of times decade after decade. I'm not against music, but just think of how much better off you'd be if you listened to a few Bible-based sermons each week. There's hardly a day that goes by when I don't listen to at least one sermon. I usually hear a couple sermons a day. The Word of God teaches that a wise man LAYS UP KNOWLEDGE. Proverb 10:14, “Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction.” Proverb 7:1, “My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.” I heard a wonderful Bible verse a couple weeks ago and have thought about it much ever since. Proverbs 27:1, “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” I love that... THE LORD IS MY LIGHT AND MY SALVATION! THE LORD IS THE STRENGTH OF MY LIFE!
If you've been visiting my website for the past few years, then you know that I've moved away from more shallow subjects and toward more spiritual things. I am glad I made that decision a couple years ago. You can verify this in my Recent section archives. I realized one day, while looking at someone else's YouTube channel, that all the guy does is help the Devil promote how bad the world is. It's like lifting the sewer and telling everybody what you found. I try to avoid that kind of wasteful reporting. Hey folks, look, surprise, I found sleaze in Hollywood! What's the point? So I got wise and decided to promote things that virtually no one else promotes... THE THINGS OF GOD!!! I've spent the bulk of my time over the past couple years listening to sermons, instead of wasting my time listening to Alex Jones brag on Donald Trump. The answer's not in The White House folks, it's in our heavenly Father's house! I go tired of watching Mark Dice's videos show how retarded the mainstream newsmedia is. What a waste of time!
Folks, I really encourage you to start listening to lots of Bible preaching. Just today, I've already heard three sermons by Pastor Jeff Owens, who is one of my favorite preachers (and was one of my Bible teachers at Hyles-Anderson College, in the good old days when they still believed that the King James Bible is inspired). We all need Bible-preaching to help us think straight! A wise person lays up knowledge before they need it. I listen to lots of preaching to lay up answers for myself and for others. People often ask for my advice, and I have to give account to God for what I tell them, so I want to give them Christian advice. I don't make decisions for people. I try to guide them with Biblical principles to help them make their own decisions. The Holy Bible truly does have all the answers to man's problems. 1st Corinthians 2:16, “For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.” Most believers don't realize how much the heathen world influences their thinking.
Let the Dead Bury Their Dead
When the Lord asked a man to follow Him, he made the excuse that he needed to go bury his own father. The Lord told him to let the dead bury their dead. That is an amazing truth. Luke 9:59-60, “And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.” The Lord is prioritizing the Lord's work. There is nothing in this world more important than serving the Lord!!!
In the parable of the parable and the seeds (“The seed is the Word of God,” Luke 8:11), Jesus in Luke 8:14, “And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.” The number one hindrance to soul-winning is getting choked by the cares and riches of this temporal life. People have all sorts of excuses why they cannot serve God, and they “BRING NO FRUIT TO PERFECTION”!!! That is, they don't get anyone saved. That's what I believe Jesus was telling the man in Luke 9:60. Let someone else be the nurses! Let someone else be the veterinarians! Let someone else be the computer programmers! GOD NEEDS SOUL-WINNERS!!! Matthew 9:38, “Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.” The great need of the hour is PREACHING PREACHERS!!! And the greatest threat today are the counterfeit Bible versions, which all teach a false Gospel message or wrong repentance and Lordship Salvation.
Kindly, Alex Jones is Part of the Problem in America
I hardly watch Alex Jones anymore. He's so tapped into the world that it's just not spiritually edifying. I only promote Infowars.com because of Alex's previous impeccable work over decades past. Alex Jones's videos are a vital source of information. Unfortunately, Alex has sold out to the establishment over the past few years and he's lost his fire for truth. Alex has aligned himself more closely with Fox News and the mainstream newsmedia, than with the truth where he once stood when he began. Alex used to oppose the left/right paradigm. That is, he exposed the massive Masonic fraud of the never-ending Democrat/Republican platform. Now Alex is pro-Republican and has become so murky and ambiguous that he's lost his distinctiveness as a truther. Alex hobnobs and has aligned himself with homosexuals (e.g. Matt Drudge), heavy-metal rockers (e.g., Led Zeppelin), and other rebels against the Lord, which shows (to some degree) that he is pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Anarchy is a sin! Only repentance will save America!!!
I just prayed for Alex, as he's in a legal battle for his children right now. It was in the Washington Post recently that the courts are threatening to take Alex's children away on the basis that he is unfit to be a parent, because of his numerous conspiracy theories. What wickedness! The news specifically mentioned that Alex believes the Sandy Hook massacre was a massive fraud (AND IT SURE WAS A HOAX!!!). So the courts are trying to determine if Alex is unfit to be a parent because he believes THE TRUTH! That's how our ungodly society works today. If you think the 9/11 attacks were an Inside Job (WHICH IS THE TRUTH!!!), the courts allege that you're unfit to be a parent. Woe unto the wicked!!! We're supposed to accept whatever the lying newsmedia tells us, no matter how much evidence there is to the contrary. Hell will be hot enough!!!
I am not saying not to listen to Alex Jones, but I am saying not to spent too much time doing so. Folks, get into the King James Bible. Unplug yourself from the world. I won't listen to Alex or anybody else as a source of humor or entertainment, I have too much better things to do with my time. Infowars.com has deteriorated so much that much of the news stories are lame and ridiculous. In a nation of 350 million people, there's always going to be an abundance of crime, injustice and horror stories. You could easily spend all your time filling your mind with worthless garbage. I refuse to allow my mind to be a garbage pail. Honestly, I really don't care about the petty crimes happening across the nation. You can listen to the news from any one of the tens-of-thousands of cities across America, and you'll hear all the same junk. I don't need to look in the garbage to see what's in there!
Do you grasp what I am saying friend? Alex Jones isn't going to teach you the Word of God. Alex doesn't promote Bible-believing preachers! Mark Dice isn't going to edify you with spiritual things. Michael Savage isn't going to make you a better Christian believer. Rush Limbaugh isn't going to enrich your life with the things of God. You can listen to these lame shows all day, and be none the wiser for it. Listening to the world's secular music for the zillionth time isn't going to keep your marriage together. None of the influences that I just mentioned are going to inspire you to go preach the Gospel and win souls to Christ. We all need to turn off the naysayers, critics and millionaire talk show celebrities, and get into the King James Bible! We need to stop listening to Professor Know-It-All and Dr. Fat Bottom, and start listening to Bible-believing, fundamentalist, godly preachers! We're plugged into the wrong things, so our minds think wrong.
Kindly, Alex Jones has inspired millions of heathens, who want the blessings of liberty and freedom; but without the necessity of the new birth by faith in Jesus Christ, and the virtues of morality and decency. America was only great when we were good, and we were good when we had great churches!!! We absolutely must return to having great churches, or we are doomed. Alex always bashes churches, but there are still a handful of fighting good churches left. In fairness to Alex, I have heard him call for national repentance at times, but it is rare. Alex says that he is a Christian, but I have my serious doubts, because Alex professes his own goodness instead of God's righteousness. You decide! Americans want their liberty and freedom to sin, and that isn't possible. A homosexual nation will crumble!!! A feminist nation will crumble!!! An abortion-loving nation will crumble!!! A porno-loving nation will crumble!!! A booze-loving nation will crumble!!! AMERICA IS DOOMED!!!!!!!
America's second U.S. President, John Adams, stated that the U.S. Constitution was only intended for a society restrained by morality and religious beliefs...
“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —U.S. President John Adams
America's days of spitting in God's face are numbered. With the legalization of abortion (murder), same-sex marriage (perversion) and tolerance for all manner of evil, God's wrath is imminent...
“I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” —Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President 1801-1809
“If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.” —Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President, 1861-1865
There is nothing new under the sun. Mankind has always been inherently evil, from the beginning when Adam opened the floodgate of sin upon the human race. Read what the Word of God says about the northern kingdom of Israel, before her fall to Assyria in 722 BC, because of habitual idolatry and sin...
Isaiah 59:1-4, “Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.”
We see the same evils today in the United States. Everywhere we turn we see injustice. Much of the injustice takes place in the very court system that is supposed to provide justice. The only justice is often “JUST-US!” None calleth for justice! None pleadeth for truth! They are all gone out of the way! There is none that doeth good, no not one (Romans 3:10-19). And sadly, the biggest liars today are church pastors, who promote corruptible seed in the modern Bible revisions, which all teach a counterfeit Gospel message.
You need to understand that Michael Savage, Alex Jones, Mark Dice, Matt Drudge, Rush Limbaugh and other loud-mouths are ALL making money! So their message is going to be shaped to some extent by this. I'm not criticizing these men, that's not my intent here, I'm simply saying don't let them waste your time! I guarantee you that if they weren't getting paid to do what they do, they'd QUIT!!! I've never taken a penny for my online labor for Christ, and never will! So I have nothing to gain here on earth! I speak from my heart. What you see is what you get!!! Like Moses, I'm looking for heavenly rewards. Hebrews 11:26, “Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.” My rewards are waiting for me in Heaven (Matthew 6:19-20).
Satan Controls the Evil World
Satan is the god of this world, and he controls this world. I was listening to Pastor Danny Castle preach yesterday, in which he shows how perverted the television DANCE MOMS instructor is, telling young girls that the audience ought to think them as being nude! Folks, if a pastor taught a group of young girls that the church congregation should think of them as nude, the authorities would arrest that pastor. The ungodly newsmedia would have a heyday! So who is protecting that pervert from DANCE MOMS? Satan, and the Luciferian elite who worship Satan, who else? We are living in the “PERILOUS TIMES” as foretold in 2nd Timothy 3:1-7!!! The judgment of God is coming. I don't know about you, but I'm running toward the Lord in all of this mess. I'm abiding in the Holy Scriptures! I'm walking with God each day! Friend, you can have this sicko world and all that is in it, I just want Jesus!
It is very important for Christian believers to set their affections on things above, and not the temporal things of this world. This is not just some good advice, it's a survival plan!!! You won't make it spiritually without the Word of God. It's not an option, for there is NO OTHER WAY!!! The world is falling apart around us. People are confused, walking in darkness, knowing not at what they worship. The average person knows just enough Bible to go to Hell. The ONLY way a believer can have a clear mind and a stable life in this confused and unstable world is to obey Colossians 3:1-3, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”
Sadly, the average church pastor today is mindful of earthly things—more interested in earning a salary than honoring the Savior, more concerning about pleasing friends than contending for the faith!!! I tell you, it would be a wonderful thing if 95% of the churches in America were permanently closed. We're living in a time when the perverted is being taught as normal. This includes the perversion of the Word of God and the perversion of the Gospel. There is no pervert like the Gospel pervert!!!
“Insanity because we're in sin!”
—Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982), from the sermon “Steps In The Degeneration Of Our Nation.”
Again, I didn't write this article to criticize Mark Dice, Alex Jones or anyone else. I wrote this article to encourage you to break away from spending too much time filling your mind and heart with empty things. We all need to UNPLUG from this sin-cursed, shallow, lame, Christ-rejecting, CRAZY WORLD!!!
God is Looking for a Few Good Friends
My recipe for having a great day is to wake up listening to God's Word first thing. (I mean listening only to the King James Bible.) My recipe for having a great day includes listening to a some Bible-preaching by a fundamental Bible preacher. I love listening to Pastor Ralph Yankee Arnold weekly. I like to listen and keep up with the preaching and ministry of Pastor Steven Anderson (although I don't agree with his PreWrath rapture nor reprobate doctrine). Albeit, Brother Anderson is a zealous soul-winner, responsible for inspiring a Gospel-preaching movement worldwide. Thousands of souls are being saved!!! Of course I support such a fervent man of God, despite his flaws (as we all have).
Brother Lester Roloff is one of my favorite preachers, who by the grace of the Gospel went from being a worthless drunkard to a precious redeemed and serving saint! Brother Roloff (1914-1982) has been a Godsend to America, whom the Lord used to rescue countless youth from the jaws of death and despair because of sin. God is still faithful folks!!! We need the power of God in our lives, in our churches and upon our labors for Him. The Authority of the saint is the Word of God. All these corrupt modern Bible versions are impotent, powerless to save a soul. They are corruptible seed!!! Only the incorruptible seed of the King James Bible can save a man!!!
As I'm writing this article I'm listening to a precious MP3 sermon by Brother Roloff called, “Running Short On Authority.” In the sermon Brother Roloff teaches a wonderful truth from Colossians 2:6-7, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Isn't that beautiful? We live the Christian life the same way that we get saved... BY FAITH IN JESUS!!!
The Bible says... SO WALK YE IN HIM: ROOTED AND BUILT UP IN HIM!!! I love that truth!
Here it is again, in case you missed it (and this is a great passage to commit to memory)... Colossians 2:6-7, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
We are supposed to live by faith. This old world is no friend of grace! My friend, learn to stay alone with the Lord. If you'll spend the bulk of your time trying to win lost sinners with the Gospel, instead of hobnobbing with stuck-up saints in the church, you'll bear much fruit to the Lord. You don't need to hobnob with people, you need to get alone with the Lord!!!
My hero of the faith is Pastor Jack Hyles. Dr. Hyles once said that if people would just listen to his sermons and read his books, out of 127 counseling session, 122 of them could have been avoided. I am not elevating Dr. Hyles, I am elevating Bible-preaching!!! You need Bible preaching you sorry rascal, and so does a sinful worm like me! Psalms 106:6, “We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.” Turn off the box! Turn off the radio! Go take a long walk and see some nature, walking with your God. Our omnipotent God promises that if we draw near unto Him, HE WILL draw near unto us. We need to get right, and humble our self in His sight, and resist the Devil, submitting to God, with a pure heart, mourning over sin and lost souls. These are the things that are dear to God's great heart. The world knows nothing of grace. God is looking for some friends today. He wants it to be you dear one, if you'll have Him...
James 4:7-10, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”
I wrote this article to help you make much better use of your time. I realized the other day that it would be easy for my web visitors to errantly assume, that I spend most of my time listening to shallow things, because I promote so much secular information. Please don't misunderstand, I think Infowars.com is far better than listening to FoxNews or CNN (contains no news...lol). But compared to spending time listening to Bible-preaching and the inspired Word of God, Infowars.com and Mark Dice are a big waste of time!!! Let the dead bury their dead! Let the heathen world fall all over each other. Let the heathens ponder the consequences of their own mess they've created, by kicking God's Holy Word out of America's classrooms!
I'm not going to spend all my time listening to the same petty injustices being repented a million times each year across our country. Think about it! It doesn't surprise me that another car-jacking happened somewhere. It doesn't surprise me that another mother freaked out, murdering all her children. It doesn't surprise me that another church pastor stole from his congregation or committed adultery. It doesn't surprise me that another public school teacher had sex with her students. It doesn't surprise me to hear about another corrupt judge. It doesn't surprise me anymore to learn that another cop abused or unjustly murdered a citizen. It doesn't shock me anymore to find out that a politician lied. Folks, you could easily spend all your time filling your mind with trash news!
What I am saying in this article is to REDEEM THE TIME. Our life is as a story being written. Therefore, we ought to learn to value the precious time that we have remaining here on earth. What are we doing to get souls saved? What are we doing to make an eternal difference? What are we doing to turn many to righteousness? What are we doing to lay up treasures in Heaven? ...
Psalms 90:9b and 12, “...we spend our years as a tale that is told. ... So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
My friend, the average American is really DUMB! The average U.S. citizen is woefully IGNORANT! The reason why is that they sit in front of their damned television and allow the ungodly newsmedia to spoon-feed them. The man who reads nothing is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers. Thomas Jefferson said that, and he is so right! People don't think for themselves anymore, they let the newsmedia think for them, and consequently people are idiots! I say that kindly, but truthfully. Likewise, the average churchgoer is unsaved, conned by corrupt preachers, who teach from corrupted Bible versions! Every generation must rediscover THE TRUTH for themselves!!! I am the best friend that you have, because I am telling you THE TRUTH, and I don't want anything from you. I spend most of my time listening to the King James Bible and fundamental Bible-preaching.
Please don't let people who make money at your expense, fill your mind with shallow things which arouse people's interest, but there is nothing edifying in the end. They're using you!!! Will you be a better person at the end of the day? Does listening to Infowars.com enrich your life? I think the answer is yes, to a limited degree, otherwise I wouldn't bother promoting Alex Jones and David Knight. Albeit, there are BETTER ways to spend your time, and abiding in the Scriptures is one of them. Listening to Bible-preaching is MUCH BETTER than listening to Infowars. That's all I'm saying, choose wisely what you put into your mind. Too much secular news will depress anyone! Too much information about the Illuminati would fry anyone's brain! I choose to spend the bulk of my listening time, listening to positive things that will bring me closer to God, not make me hate the government. Please don't misunderstand what I say, we need to know what's going on in the world. We don't want to become like ostriches with our head stuck in the sand, God forbid. But at the same time, you're going to become an educated fool if you don't “SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES” (John 5:39)!!! 2nd Timothy 3:7, “Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
I guess what I am saying, in summary, is that I am so sick and tired of this wicked world!!! I just want to set my mind and heart on the things of God, living ABOVE THE CLOUDS with the Lord! I don't want to live UNDER THE CLOUDS, seeing all the rains of horrible news, the hail of slander and gossip of others, and the winds of misery because of sin. Colossians 3:1-3, “If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.” That's all I am saying. END

Rooted and Built Up in Him
You live the Christian life the same way that you got saved... BY FAITH IN HIM!!!
Here's a precious MP3 sermon by Brother Roloff called, “Running Short On Authority.” In the sermon Brother Roloff teaches a wonderful truth from Colossians 2:6-7, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Isn't that beautiful? We live the Christian life the same way that we get saved... BY FAITH IN JESUS!!!
The Bible says... SO WALK YE IN HIM: ROOTED AND BUILT UP IN HIM!!! I love that truth!
Here it is again, in case you missed it (and this is a great passage to commit to memory)...
Colossians 2:6-7, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.”
And here also in this passage, we see “the simplicity that is in Christ” (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). We are saved simply by BELIEVING (TRUSTING) “THE GOSPEL” when we hear it preached!!!
Isaiah 26:3, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
DO GOOD and it will BE GOOD!!!
