Hell Is At The Brink

Save me from this prison
Lord, help me get away
‘Cause only you can save me now
from this misery

I’ve been lost in my own place
and I’m getting’ weary
How far is heaven?
And I know that I need to change
my ways of livin’
How far is heaven?
Lord, can you tell me?

I’ve been locked up way too long
in this crazy world.
How far is heaven?
And I just keep on prayin’, Lord
And just keep on livin’.
How far is heaven?

Lord, can you tell me?
How far is heaven?
‘Cause I just got to know how far, yeah?
How far is heaven?
Lord, can you tell me?

Henry Garza pleads, “I know there’s a better place/Than this place I’m livin’/How far is heaven?” He wrote the song as a prayer. When he was 18, his son died of sudden infant death syndrome (S.I.D.S). It’s about the pain he felt and wanting to escape this world and see his son.  When the band members were living in Nashville, crammed with their families into a tiny house, not making enough money to get by, feeling like the whole world was crashing down on them, “I got on my knees and started crying and started praying,” Henry says. “And the good Lord told me to start writing it down.”

The world we live in today could be said to have two parts…Black and WhiteGood and EvilRight and WrongLight or Darkness…which could lead us to Heaven or Hell.

As I see it right now, most of the world is going south bound.  With the shifting sands of our culture – Are we drawn to it all without accountability? God is being kicked to the curb.  As Christians we must not allow this to happen.  We are all sinners…lets not beat around the bush.  Romans 3:23, “…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”  Adam and Eve were the first and from that day, till today, that is what we are.

But with God removed from everything we have chaos!

Back in the old testament times, violence and corruption ran rampant.  Ceasars and kings were corrupt.  It seems that today isn’t much better, with politicians and world leaders and their corruption and lies and the violence in the streets, that nobody seems to be able to curb.  Then there is ISIS and their ideology spreading hate and killing at will for over-all control.

We’re Standing on the Edge…Are You Worried or Are You Confident?…

But that’s not the worst of it.  There is much more of the same in store for this earth we live in.  The Book of Revelation isn’t a sci-fi novel although it might read like one.  The symbols of God’s message to John reveals the fire and brimstone that will rain on this earth during the tribulation times.  The world is heading straight for the tribulation.  I’ve mentioned this before in my tract on “The End Of Days is Nothing to Fret About…..IF”.  The world is heading down those paths now.  Many governments around the world are trying to program people into thinking that by controlling the types of homes we can have, controlling us with food stamps or in some places as to what we should or should not eat, controlling the types of morals we should have and that God should be removed from everything, even the Christians should be removed for hate speech. 

The world is gearing up for a “one-world government” or “new world order”…the Bible tells us this and look around it’s starting to come to pass…however it’s not as bad yet, as it will be during the tribulation.  New World Order is a term used to describe the uniting of the world’s superpowers to secure and maintain global peace, safety, and security.  You are NOW being prepared (groomed) for the New World Order.

A New World Order has been a long time in the making, its pieces fitting into place from divergent realms and with many different players.  The agenda is a diabolical program which, through patience, is slowly draining the spiritual, moral, economic and political life blood from the worlds population.

No Peace, No Safety, No Security  “For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman.  And they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5:3  They lead you to a false sense of security, then “BAM!”, when you least expect it they destroy you and take everything.  The New World Order will demand that nations go into debt, in order to finance their agenda, you must spend and spend and spend more than you have coming in. In the name of war, in the name of security, people will accept changes to their liberties and to their freedoms, that they would never accept in a time of peace.

 

Regardless of what happens in this life — no matter how depressing the world news or how difficult or dark the season we might be enduring — life in Christ has a happy ending…and nothing on earth or hell can ever take that away.  When the heartache of this present world weighs heavily on us, we have only to look up and look ahead at the wonderful end of one story and the glorious beginning of a new story that will never end.  An eternal story with one central theme: Jesus is King of Kings “…and every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  Philippians 2:11

Are you ready for an illustrious life with Jesus?  He could come at any moment.  Think you have copious amounts of time?  “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Matthew 24:36   “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming…Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24:42, 44  

Is it going to be Heaven or Hell you’re headed for?

Be ready…Be watching…Be waiting…I am!
