There’s chaos without Christ

I appreciate all the phone calls, emails, and snail mail cards concerning my health and my recent surgeries. I did spend a couple of hours on the table last Tuesday having two surgeries performed. Neither one of them bothered me a bit; I slept right through the whole thing.

Myself, my wife, and a friend for a chauffeur started the day at 3 in the morning to be on the other side of the big city by 5 a.m. Surgery was promised for 7:30 and the last thing I remember was sailing down a cool hallway headed for the theatre at 7:40. I guess I can call it a good day when I can check out of the hospital and find myself traveling down the highway, halfway home, and it’s only noon. I just love it when a plan comes together.

And at this point I will step out and give God all the glory for a well-planned, well-executed, successful day, which I spent the rest of kicked back in my easy chair, nodding off, while thanking God for preserving my voice and granting me more time to teach the Gospel, and maybe save some souls. I bow in awe of answered prayer, especially when I recognize and see God working in my life, matching me up with the right people as the need arises. God is good, all the time!

A German soldier was wounded in battle, as many were, during World War II. He was ordered to go to the military hospital for treatment. When he arrived at the large and imposing building he saw two doors, one marked “For the Slightly Wounded” and the other marked “For the Seriously

Wounded.” He entered through the first door and found himself walking down a long hallway. At the end of it were two more doors, one marked “For Officers” and the other “For Non-Officers.” He entered through the latter and found himself walking down another long hall. At the end of it were two more doors, one marked “For Party Members” and the other “For non-Party Members.” He took the second door, and when he opened it he found himself out on the street. When the soldier returned to his squad the commanding officer asked him, “How did you get along at the hospital?” “Well, sir,” he replied, “to tell you the truth, the people there didn’t do a thing for me, but you ought to see the tremendous organization they have!”

[Revelation 3:1-6] “... I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.

Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. ... He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says ...” This scripture is directed to the church in Sardis and I feel it’s time to share it with not only the church of today, but, the home, our public school systems, our governments, and especially the president, Congress, and the Justices of the United States of America. An article, titled “God Isn’t Fixing This,” appeared Dec. 3, 2015, on the front page of the New York Daily News, inferring that God has no power over the evils of the world randomly attacking innocent men, women, and children. Moreover, that all the prayers in the world will do no good to bring this chaos to an end.

There is chaos because our country and our leaders are without Christ (Colossians 1:16-17), “... He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” Only the laws of God can harness and regulate peaceful living. This election year needs to reap God-fearing representatives praying for guidance, daily.
