I find as I grow older that there's no sense in worrying over trivial stuff. I am a child of God. I'm saved and going to Heaven when I die. I'm no better than anyone else, but I know things now that I hadn't a clue about even a year ago, let alone than when I was saved at age 14.
For example, you ripen as you age, much like fruit. A green banana has no flavor and is hard and stiff, but let it sit and it will turn yellow and grow soft and sweet on the inside. It also possesses more nutrients and is a good source of quick energy as it ripens. Even bananas get "age spots"-- but the more there are, the better and sweeter the fruit inside will taste. (By the way, God doesn't make mistakes, and God made the banana tree, so those of you who look at the lowly banana with disdain may as well try one and see how good they are. It's not like you're eating a candy bar, you fool.) 😉
As the days grow later I have a stronger sense of these end times and I must be about the Lord's business. Even though few hear, I need to "sound out" the Gospel as often and as loudly as I can. My stats on my videos have plummeted, and it can be discouraging, but I know that Satan hates what I am doing here and he often drives people away to some other new thing or fad instead of allowing them to receive the Gospel and be saved. However, my God blesses my efforts and He will reward me in the life to come when I see Him face to face.
I am not about the numbers or the view count; I must do the work that God has given me to do, no matter what the response may be. Some days I get a flood of lost folks who, like a pack of hungry wolves, attack my message and try to tear down my ministry here. That's what happened at my Wordpress blog. I gave up on it, because Satan got the better of me. I regret that to this day, but I must give it to God and allow Him to use me here as well. Starting over is better than giving up on the sidelines.
This is a battle that we're in. God is so powerful that He can use and manipulate even the enemy of our souls, who is the Devil. The Devil is the second highest power in the universe, the first of course being God Almighty. Sometimes God uses the Devil like a powerful electric taser, because Satan is in electricity, which is the reason there are so many technologies involving circuits, wires, signals through the air, so-called "cloud" storage, etc., and Satan is behind all the negative side of the internet: spam emails, bogus sites, porn sites, chat rooms, YouTube, Facebook, etc.. Don't you realize that you are allowing the Devil himself into your living room the moment your finger presses the remote control? He is in the POWER OF THE AIR, which is electrical activity and communications.
Other times God uses him as a more lethal weapon to control the weather, natural disasters, floods, etc. (by the way there is no such thing as "global warming", that is a hoax contrived by the evil principalities in our government to get us acclimated to the New World Order and the arrival of the Antichrist). The Lord Jesus Christ said the Devil is the prince of the power of the air, and as such he also controls the weather under God's commands. Satan is the god of this world, but Almighty God is King of the universe. It's hard to think of that, but God is the One above all principalities and powers and He will have the final word in all matters.
Just speaking of my God, Who is my Heavenly Father because I believed on His only begotten Son, stirs my heart and makes me want to praise Him for all His wonderful works. God doesn't make mistakes, nor does He fail in any one of His promises, one of which is that without Christ, lost people who die in their sins WILL go to Hell where the Devil will go in his appointed time.
Do you want to spend eternity with Satan, who hates you, despises your life, and wants nothing more than to drag your eternal soul to Hell with him? Or do you want to spend eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, and be with Him in Heaven forever? The choice is yours alone to make.
- Admit that you are a sinner in danger of everlasting Hell fire.
- Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ Who bled and died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and was raised again the third day.
- Receive God's forgiveness and eternal life from the Lord Jesus Christ.
It's that simple. See this page for more info: HOW TO GO TO HEAVEN
