ANSWERS TO LIFE’S ULTIMATE QUESTION:

The Grand Journey of Life Moves on Relentlessly

Time to Go?

OLD CARS CAN BE RESTORED:

BUT WHAT HAPPENS TO PEOPLE?

No, we are not left to guess, our Maker and Designer has spoken plainly.

Romans 2:4-6   do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?  But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honour, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek; but glory, honour, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

HOW CAN ANYONE PREPARE FOR THAT DAY?

That’s the purpose of the Bible and all that other literature on the table – it’s time to ‘HELP YOUR SELF’.

Take up and Read!

I was weeping in the most bitter contritition of my heart, when I heard the voice of children from a neighbouring house chanting, “take up and read; take up and read.” I could not remember ever having heard the like, so checking the torrent of my tears, I arose, interpreting it to be no other than a command from God to open the book and read the first chapter I should find. Eagerly then I returned to the place where I had laid the volume of the apostle. I seized, opened, and in silence read that section on which my eyes first fell: “Not in revelry and drunkenness, not in licentiousness and lewdness, not is strife and envy; but put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.” No further would I read, nor did I need to. For instantly at the end of this sentence, it seemed as if a light of serenity infused into my heart and all the darkness of doubt vanished away. – Augustine

Romans 13:14 (NKJV) But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts. God.

Read about the amazing God who made us, His Holiness and Righteousness, His Love and Mercy. How He acted in time to bring about the permanent restoration of the human heart and mind so that men might live in His presence – Forever!

Romans 5:10 (NKJV) For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Romans 3:26 (NKJV) to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Mary had a little pig and it was white as snow,
That is when it had had a bath, as you of course might know.
But Mary had an awful time to keep the piggy clean,
For it was just the dirtiest pig that one has ever seen.

She’d wash him and she’d scrub him, till he would squirm and squeal,
As if he wanted her to know it was an unfair deal.
And then inside his green backyard he’d plan from morn to night,
Unless he happened to sneak out and lose himself from sight.

And then when Mary found him he’d be blacker than ere before, 
So Mary’d get the soap again and scrub the pig some more.
Poor Mary thought and wondered much what she could ever do
Until she figured out a plan, and this she carried through.

She took him to a doctor who put the pig to sleep, and then he 
Took his heart right out, but not of course to keep.
And then he took a little lamb and took his heart out too
And put it in the little pig before the piggy knew.

When little piggy did awake he had no more desire
To wallow in the mud again or ever in the mire.
And try as hard as ere he could he never understood,
How such a pig as once he was could ever be so good.

And so you see, dear friends of mine, you need a new heart too,
Just like the little piggy did, the old will never do.
If you’ll receive a brand new heart, well, here is how you may.
Accept God’s son as Saviour now and let him in today.

But Life Continues, Each According to it’s own Timetable:

128 Bus and Tractor

Local Transport?

Though Buses Are Rare, They Trundle Through Town Each Hour.

Whether full or not they’ve a timetable to keep, making travel possible back and forth along the A170.

The car owning public usually ignore them, unless stuck behind one on our winding country roads!

Other people may need to use them, but not me, I’m independent, going where and when I choose! Perhaps I’ll even use a tractor!!

You never need to dig too deep to uncover this spirit, whether it be applied to the mighty omnibus or omnipotent God.

All is well until you find you can no longer drive, and if, for whatever reason, there is no suitable transport to hand, you are stuck!

Young or Old

Life’s Journey is Relentless, onward, forward, to where?

A friend was 90 years old this weekend, he comments frequently on the brevity of life by using these words:

Job 7:6 “My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle, and are spent without hope.

To which we could add:

Job 9:25 “Now my days are swifter than a runner; they flee away, they see no good.

Job 16:22 For when a few years are finished, I shall go the way of no return.

Psalm 103:15,16 As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.

Life, Happiness in: Charlie Brown, pondering his plight in life, thought, “Yesterday, for one brief moment I was happy. But just when I thought I was winning in the game of life, there was a flag thrown on the play and life dealt me a blow.”

Life’s Journey has one direction, every step bring us closer to meeting our Maker!

Our mortal remains usually make one last journey in a procession traveling slowly,

Life here will have ended but you’ve been summoned to give account for your life by your Maker.

Genesis 50:12–14 So his sons did for him just as he had commanded them. For his sons carried him to the land of Canaan, and buried him in the cave of the field of Machpelah, before Mamre, which Abraham bought with the field from Ephron the Hittite as property for a burial place.  And after he had buried his father, Joseph returned to Egypt, he and his brothers and all who went up with him to bury his father.

If this were all, then life is about enjoying what you have while you wait for extinction.

Living for the present gives only fleeting comfort.

There is One Who can and does Transform Human Existence

Confronted by Life’s Futility, He Displayed His Power over It’s Claim On Us.

Luke 7:12–15 And when He came near the gate of the city, behold, a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow. And a large crowd from the city was with her. When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” Then He came and touched the open coffin, and those who carried him stood still. And He said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” So he who was dead sat up and began to speak. And He presented him to his mother.

By Surrendering To Its Claims on All Mankind, He Broke its Cold Clammy Grip, And Triumphed Over it for All To See.

 

Acts 13:28–31 And though they found no cause for death in Him, they asked Pilate that He should be put to death. Now when they had fulfilled all that was written concerning Him, they took Him down from the tree and laid Him in a tomb. But God raised Him from the dead.  He was seen for many days by those who came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses to the people. 

His People Delight To Tell All And Sundry, that Though Life Might Seem Futile, IT ISN’T!

1 Corinthians 15:55–57  “O Death, where is your sting?  O Hades, where is your victory?” The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

One recent summer, a bee was drawn into the open window of a car traveling down the road. The bee was upset, and so was a boy in the car, who had previously suffered a severe reaction from a bee sting. But before things got out of hand, the boy’s father caught the bee in his hand and tossed it back out the window. Then he pulled the car over to comfort his son. The boy, however, was now desperately worried that his father would die from the bee sting. “Oh, no,” said the father, showing him that his hand was only slightly swollen. “The sting won’t hurt me like it would you, so I took the sting for you.” And that is just what Jesus did for us: He took the sting of death for us, and now that sting is gone.

Answers to the Ultimate Question

 

HAPPY DAY?


HAPPY DAY? Depends on What’s Happening!

The Happy Couple.

Beginning A New Life Together.

Its Enough To Turn Your Head.

BUT JUST A FEW MINUTES LATER!

 HAPPINESS DEPENDS ON WHAT’S HAPPENING.

The Same Day Can Be Full Of Delight for Some and a Disaster for Others.

God’s Word Describes The Last Day Like This:

Revelation 20:12 (NKJV)

And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.

Revelation 20:15 (NKJV)

And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:27 (NKJV)

But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

 FOR SOME A DISASTER, FOR OTHERS A DELIGHT!

Too many have embraced the lie of religion that their works will be enough to give access into the land without tears.

There is but one way in, through Him who describes himself as the door:

John 10:9 (NKJV)

I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.

The ‘Lamb’s book of Life, belongs to Him, and records the names of those for whom He died.

Those included are revealed in their complete surrender to Jesus Christ, which means confessing you are caught out and condemned by the law, and that you are relying on Christ’s good work, not your own works.

John 1:29b (NKJV)

 “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

It’s Time You Faced The Awesome Truth:

Matthew 19:24 (NKJV)

And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

Matthew 18:3 (NKJV)

Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.

Those who have their names in the Lamb’s book of life, and who alone will enjoy the future happiness reserved for them, have abandoned the notion that you can write yourself in His book by their own efforts, and humbly come as a child to receive eternal life as a free gift from Jesus Christ.

John 5:24 (NKJV)

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.

You’ve probably heard the  story of the man whose name was printed in the obituary column of a daily paper by mistake. Greatly disturbed, he went to the newspaper office and exclaimed, “This is terrible! Your error will cause me no end of embarrassment and may even mean a loss of business. How could you do such a thing?” The editor expressed regrets, but the man remained angry and unreasonable. Finally the editor said in disgust, “Cheer up, I’ll put your name in the birth column tomorrow and give you a fresh start!”
Are you registered in Adam’s obituary column, or is your name in the Lamb’s Book of Life? There are only two books, and you are in one or the other!

ULTIMATE QUESTIONS NEED SATISFACTORY ANSWERS

A Number of People Stopped To Talk, One Lady Even Before The Table Was Setup!

A Methodist Lay Preacher, A Christian Family From Leeds, A Little Old Lady who was frightened off by the mention of being ‘born again’.

Then finally a man who wanted to be friendly with everyone. So concerned that he should not be coerced to conform to anyone’s criteria, he’d invented a whole new set of boxes to tick!

HE RAISES THE QUESTION AS TO WHETHER EVERYONE CAN BE RIGHT AT THE SAME TIME.

Can you be BOTH black and white at one and the same time, I fear not, you are simple left as a shade of gray.

Jesus clearly says, there is only one way to God, you must come through Him:

John 14:6 (NKJV)

 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

That’s What Peter Understood Him To Have Said: 

Acts 4:12 (NKJV)

 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

My friend agreed, as of course you might expect!

Then proceeded to explain that he believed each person would be judged by the light he had received.

This is often thought to be the meaning of:

Romans 2:11–16 (NKJV)

There is no partiality with God. For as many as have sinned without law will also perish without law, and as many as have sinned in the law will be judged by the law (for not the hearers of the law are just in the sight of God, but the doers of the law will be justified; for when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do the things in the law, these, although not having the law, are a law to themselves, who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them) in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

Tragically it describes the fate of ‘sinners’, whether they’ve had the privilege of the revelation of God’s Law or simply the Light of God’s Creation.

Either way they are lost and without hope, it may sound generous to talk about being ‘judged by the light you have’, but in fact its the terrible truth that:

Romans 3:10–12 (NKJV)

 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one; there is none who understands; there is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; they have together become unprofitable; there is none who does good, no, not one.”

Romans 3:19–20 (NKJV)

Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Those who’ve never heard of the Living God, The God of the Bible, fair no better, the light of creation defines them as sinners too:

Romans 1:20–25 (NKJV)

For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Romans 3:23 (NKJV)

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God!

IT’S ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL THAT WE ARE HONEST WITH PEOPLE.

Jesus Christ came to save sinners, and all who recognize their name, and only they, will find themselves ‘safe’ in the salvation provided in and by Jesus Christ.

John 3:16 (NKJV)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

NO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST – THEN YOU HAVE NO HOPE!

TRUSTING ON, BELIEVING IN JESUS CHRIST, YOU HAVE PEACE WITH GOD.

PEACE LIKE A RIVER TRANSCENDS THE BELIEVING SOUL.


CHARITY CASE


A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF GOOD WORK IS DONE IN COLLECTING FOR CHARITY.

Charity Collector

 It was fascinating to watch how people respond to the solitary figures with their money boxes and giving away sticker badges.

Some completely ignored them, others immediately approached, dropped their coin in the bucket and went away wearing their badge of honour .

The intriguing people were those who felt the need to explain that they’d already given but lost the badges.

Charities are well respected, and rightly so, for the opportunity they provide for donors to be generous and all the good work they do. 

The Free Dictionary defines ‘charity thus: [ http://www.thefreedictionary.com/%5D

1. Provision of help or relief to the poor; almsgiving.
2. Something given to help the needy; alms.
3. An institution, organization, or fund established to help the needy.
4. Benevolence or generosity toward others or toward humanity.

5. Indulgence or forbearance in judging others.

It goes on to describe a 6th meaning of ‘charity’:

 The theological virtue defined as love directed first toward God but also toward oneself and one’s neighbours as objects of God’s love.

In this 6th sense (???) the work of sharing the Goodnews of God's love for sinners, His provision of His Son as a substitute for sinners, His calling of people to believe and be saved is 'charitable' work  of the highest importance.

Charity Display

The Distinctive of This Charitable Work is that it’s about Giving Instead of Collecting.

The greatest gift anyone can give, the greatest good anyone can do is to provide you with all you need to understand the love of God for lost people.

As long as people are around there will be a need to give to those who help cancer sufferers, provide lifeboats, air ambulances and provide for human and animal welfare.

But only the gospel of God’s kindness to undeserving sinners meets mankind’s great need of a Saviour. The cancer of sin, the danger of drowning in it and just plain compassion for mankind is the primary Christian Charitable Cause.

Martin Luther wrote: “The believing man has the Holy Ghost; and where the Holy Ghost dwells, He will not suffer a man to be idle, but stirs him up to all exercises of piety and godliness, and of true religion, to the love of God, to the patient suffering of afflictions, to prayer, to thanksgiving, and the exercise of charity towards all men.” 

Because of this the Church in Pickering makes the Good News available to tourist and local people alike.

Mark 16:15 (NKJV)

 “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.

Romans 1:15 (NKJV)

So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in [Pickering] Rome also.

1 Corinthians 9:16 (NKJV)

For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!

As A Charitable Act We Would TELL YOU About God’s Great Love and Call You to Receive His Free Gift of ETERNAL Life.

You must either be a ‘Charity Case’ or  suffer the ravages of your own sin forever.

A.B. Simpson is reported to have said that the gospel “Tells rebellious men that God is reconciled, that justice is satisfied, that sin has been atoned for, that the judgment of the guilty may be revoked, the condemnation of the sinner canceled, the curse of the Law blotted out, the gates of hell closed, the portals of heaven opened wide, the power of sin subdued, the guilty conscience healed, the broken heart comforted, the sorrow and misery of the Fall undone.”

More than half a dozen people stopped to talk, I’m always grateful to those Christians who want to encourage me  in my efforts to bear witness for the Lord.

The one who has left me thinking though, is the lady who cheerfully described herself as a ‘Pagan’!

She told me she believed in the ‘spiritual’ and that Jesus was the source of her morals, and left!

.

WHAT IS A PAGAN?

Wikipedia [where else would you look?] defines ‘pagan’ as:

Contemporary Paganism, or Neopaganism, includes reconstructed religions such as Hellenic polytheism, Celtic or Germanic reconstructionism as well as modern eclectic traditions such as Discordianism, or Wicca and its many offshoots.Many of the “revivals”, Wicca and Neo-druidism in particular, have their roots in 19th century Romanticism and retain noticeable elements of occultism or theosophy that were current then, setting them apart from historical rural (paganus) folk religion.
 

One ‘Pagan’ web site advertises itself as:

Your one stop spot for information relating to God and/or Goddess Worship in all its many forms…  Celtic, Druid, Egyptian, Greek, Magical Traditions, Eastern, Native American, Norse Heathen, Roman, Santeria, Wicca, WitchCraft {Craft of the Wise} and other Earth Centered and Nature Based Religious Faiths.  

The Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary describes them as:

Those who worship a god or gods other than the living God to whom the Bible witnesses.   
 

PAGANISM

MIGHT BE 

SUMMARISED AS

Those religions which Christianity replaced, having demonstrated itself to be the only true revelation of the Supreme Being to mankind.

 The delusions Satan uses to keep people trapped in sin and condemned to hell!

When the Pagan world of the New Testament was challenged by the Good News Of Jesus Christ’s Life, death and resurrection, Paganism crumbled before it.

Acts 19:19a (NKJV)

Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. 

Paganism Flourishes Today Because The Gospel has Been Distorted,  Misrepresented, and Ignored.

The ‘light’ has gone out and darkness rules the land.

THE GOSPEL LIGHT SHINES TO GIVE HOPE TO THOSE EMBROILED IN PAGAN DARKNESS.

John 8:12 (NKJV)

 Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

John 12:46 (NKJV)

 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

 Jesus’ Sacrifice Established Forever That There Is Only One God, and Only One Way To Be One With God –

Ancient paganism thought of each god as bound to his worshippers by self-interest because he depended on their service and gifts for his welfare. Modern paganism has at the back of its mind a similar feeling that God is somehow obligated to love and help us, even though we don’t deserve it. This was the feeling voiced by the French freethinker who died muttering, “God will forgive—that’s his job.” But this feeling is not well founded. The God of the Bible does not depend on his human creatures for his well-being (see Ps. 50:8–13; Acts 17:25), nor, now that we have sinned, is he bound to show us favor. We can only claim from his justice—and justice, for us, means certain condemnation.
God does not owe it to anyone to stop justice from taking its course. He is not obligated to pity and pardon; if he does so it is an act done, as we say, “of his own free will,” and nobody forces his hand. “It depends not upon man’s will or exertion, but upon God’s mercy” (Rom. 9:16). Grace is free because it is self-originated and proceeds from the One who was free not to be gracious. Only when one realizes that what decides each man’s destiny is whether or not God resolves to save him from his sins, and that this is a decision which God need not make in any single case, can one begin to grasp the biblical view of grace.

KINDNESS


People out again after the rain.

Matthew 5:45 (NKJV)  He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

“I Think

,

the Most Important

,

Characteristic of God

,

is His Kindness”

 That’s What ‘Jim’ Thinks Anyway! We’ve spoken now for 4 weeks or more, and he approached me to raise the matter. I’ve been thinking since last we spoke, and that’s the conclusion to which I have come.

He’d gone away the previous week to consider the searching question: ‘Am I good enough to be allowed to enter heaven?’ We’d spoken about the fact that everyone sins, and that there are no perfect people in the world.

Romans 3:23 (NKJV)  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God .

We’d considered further that God is Perfect, and looks for Perfection in those who would enter His heaven.

Matthew 5:48 (NKJV) Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Concluding therefore that no living person is ‘good enough’ to dwell with God forever.

Romans 3:10 (NKJV) As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one.

What Is Sin?
Sin is anything that is contrary to the law or will of God. For example: if you lie, you have sinned. Why? Because God has said not to lie (Ex. 20:16). If you do what God has forbidden, then you have sinned. In addition, if you do not do what God has commanded, you sin (James 4:17). Either way, the result is eternal separation from God (Is. 59:2). Sin is lawlessness (1 John 1:3) and unrighteousness (1 John 5:17). Sin leads to blindness (John 9:41) and death (Rom. 6:23).

 Serious Stuff – Jim had gone home to consider where he stood before God, and came back speaking about God’s kindness!

Like so many of his generation he was hoping in that kindness which simply overlooks imperfections and rewards ‘best efforts’, ‘good intentions’, etc..

I was able to explain a little of the revealed nature of God as holy, righteous  and committed to justice, therefore committed to consistently deal fairly with sin of every degree.

A Policeman or Judge might be able to ‘turn a blind eye’, but the living God will not, can not!

Deuteronomy 18:13 (NKJV) You shall be blameless before the Lord your God.

1 Peter 1:15–16 (NKJV)  but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

Thankfully, God Is Also KIND, His KINDNESS is Shown in His Amazing Gift of His Only Son to Deliver Sinners from Judgement – That’s KINDNESS!

Titus 3:4–5 (NKJV) But when the kindness and the love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit.

In a world changing act of mercy He has shown mercy to millions who deserve punishment – THAT’s KINDNESS! – Love in action, according to Charles Allen.

1 Corinthians 13:4 (NKJV)  Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up

Everyone knows the story of the ‘Good Samaritan’, that’s Kindness, a lesson in God’s kindness to those beaten up and left for dead by sin. Jesus [God] is the Good Samaritan who stoops down to tend our wounds, lift us out of danger and provided for all we need to bring us safe to heaven.

How?

Colossians 1:28 (NKJV) Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.

Those who understand the KINDNESS of God don’t want Him to turn a ‘blind eye’, they are rejoicing and resting in the work of God’s Son on the Cross to make them perfect, and thereby fit and ready for eternal life in the presence of the Perfect One.
