WHEN THE POWER GRID GOES DOWN

In America, we take so much for granted.  With a flick of a switch, light comes on to fill the darkened room.  We have A/C in the summer to keep us cool and heat in the winter to keep us cozy. With a push of a button or turning of a knob, any of our appliances can be activated to serve us.   We can turn on our TV's and computers and learn instantly, what is going on all around the world.  It is all generated by a power source that we generally take for granted.


What happens is a power grid goes down?  Well, it has in the past!  If it happens today, it would be back to candles, flashlights, glowing fireplaces, and Coleman stoves!


I want to share with you a major power source that is always active and cannot fail. 


 "God hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion" (Jeremiah 10:12).  We see this evident, every day, in the beauty of creation.  Where did the internet come from?  Answer: God's wisdom to man. 


 ..."power belongs to God." (Psalms 62:11).


 " (He) God ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves"  (Psalms 66:7).


You might ask "Why doesn't God stop all the evil that is going on in the world?"  Remember, God gave man dominion over the earth (Genesis 1:28; Psalms 115:16).


It was God's divine purpose to give earth to man and He would fellowship with them  daily (yes, men and women).   What happened?  Almighty, powerful God also gave man a will but man willed to sin and to do his way!  If God took away our self-will, all of mankind would all be as puppets.  God cannot go against His laws He created.   It is man who has corrupted the earth, not God.  "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9).


WHERE IS OUR HOPE, JOY AND PEACE?  We have been  given the power of God's grace to become His children by way of the cross when we accept Jesus who died to save us from our sins.   "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16). 


 Dear friends, a time of judgment is coming up this earth. Jesus will call up His children  home first and judgment will come such as man, all to often, is not willing to comprehend.   Sinners will have to stand before God and give account of their life on this earth. That is an absolute! Heaven and Hell are certainties! 


If you don't know Jesus personally, please accept Him today! He loves you.


Christians?  Are you living in stress, defeat, depression, anxiety, sickness, and any other negative situation?  (And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:12). The same power that saved you, can deliver and give you all the abundant blessings God has for you.


There is an enemy, satan, who comes to kill, steal and destroy.  He is the one who hinders you.   


 Jesus and His Word and you WILL be set free. You have God's guarantee for He cannot lie (Numbers 23:19; Mark 11:23-26).  


 

POWER IS ONLY ACTIVATED IF WE CHOOSE TO USE IT!


 

Are you living in His promises? Are you ready for His coming today?


 

With blessings and love,


 

Jan
