The Great Fall Vacation into Eternity
Were they ready for the ultimate, permanent vacation into eternity ?
Watching the news I’ve noticed something happening more and more on a regular basis. People who set out for an enjoyable vacation of rest and relaxation, the last, worst thing imaginable, something not even on their mind encounters them, eternity. And it’s mostly the carefree, careless, clueless youth that this is happening to.
There is a spike in all sorts of vacation deaths which I’ve been reading over the past year, so much so, that I decided to share this message with you out there.
Living a life of ‘SELF’ without God is a death wish
I remember my Pastor back in the 90’s, Ken Garrison, preached on the most evil song every written or sung that has seduced and deceived so many souls into hell. Frank Sinatra’s,
“I did it MY way”
That is the devils, number one song.
Living life centered on our self will is the road to hell, beyond dangerous, we leave out the Only One who can protect us. Without submission to Jesus on a daily, hourly basis we will encounter the roaring lion who is out to steal, kill and destroy us.
Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
As Christian’s we should never take His guidance and protection for granted. We must always include Him in our decisions so that they are not our decisions but that of the LORD we claim to serve and follow.
No selfies in the Kingdom of God, we lift Him up, not our own wretched selves. Self, stuck on stupid without God, will get you killed.
Personally, I work hard to put the Lord first in all that I do and to seek His blessing in every decision that I make. In these seriously dark times I would never think to take a vacation without His direction. For myself I don’t see this is a time for “vacations” as we are in a 24/7 war and during war there is no time for play. It can often become the last thing we do here on this earth when the Lord is not our safety and protection from our own stupidity and the evil roaming lion who seeks to devour us.
“Behold, I am laying stumbling blocks before this people.
And they will stumble against them,
Fathers and sons together;
Neighbor and friend will perish.”
It was reported last year that more people died while taking selfies than by shark attacks.
A student who lay dying after falling into a Moroccan ravine may have been ignored for hours by onlookers worried about being liable for medical bills, an inquest has heard.
PERILOUS TIMES ARE UPON US!
