Hi friends! It seems there are two groups of people in the world: those looking anxiously for the return of our Lord, and those pursuing utopia on a hopelessly sinful planet. We see evil all around us, yet politicians and others promise a better world. It will never happen!
Consider two principles of Scripture:
…every man did what was right in his own eyes.~Deuteronomy 12:8, Judges 17:6, Judges 21:25,
Yet, Proverbs tells us that is foolishness! (Proverbs 12:15, Proverbs 21:2) Doing what’s right in our own eyes is pursuit of utopia! Somehow, we think we can create a better place if we ignore God’s ways and depend upon our own!
As Bible believers, we know that’s not true, and here are only two examples of the evidence:
The heart is more deceitful than all else~Jeremiah 17:9
And is desperately sick;
Who can understand it?
In fact, here is God’s point of view:
The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men~Psalm 14:2-3
To see if there are any who understand,
Who seek after God.
3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt;
There is no one who does good, not even one.
So, to which group do you belong? If you’re looking for this world to become a better place, you will be continually disappointed. But if you stand with those eagerly awaiting the return of Jesus to redeem us from this sin-sick world, you have hope!
We (believers) will soon be snatched out of this world (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18, 1 Corinthians 15:51-57). (That is the rapture!) Glorious days lie ahead for us, dear believers! Do not grow weary because, as verse 57 tells us, God will give us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
