Contained in the following paragraphs and pages from the Holy Bible (KJV) are many references. I do believe that these references are God's Word and without error.
There are also contained throughout the following pages personal thoughts of interpretation. These are opinion and I in no way wish to convey the thought that these personal comments are as Holy writ but that they are in fact truth within the writers conscience.
In Thy Lifetime. These words were spoken to a rich man from Father Abraham in Luke's gospel.
Much ado seems to revolve in some arenas as to whether or not this man actually existed or was strictly parabolic. I propose to draw attention only to the relevency of the Word and us alive today.
Jesus told his disciples in Luke 16 of a certain rich man and a certain beggar. Emphasis from Jesus point of view with this or any other recorded words from Him is far removed from only one point being made. That is everybody's eternal destiny is determined solely by their 'In thy Lifetime' choices. Just as these two examples are forever with or without God so it is with us all.
Back to Luke's writing. This man is in a unspeakably horrible place for eternity due to his 'in thy lifetime' choices. Friend, you too are as I am also temporarily in a lifetime that will determine our eternity with joy unspeakable and full of glory or a place of unspeakable torment without end. It is our prayer that Jesus is Lord of our choices.
Twice in the Gospels, Matthew and Luke 4:4 in the same chapter and verse Jesus tells Satan (and us) Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word of God.
How simple and all important are those words. How many Christians today live with over burdened issues, void of real joy and happiness simply due to a 'been there done that' or 'I'll read later' mindset. What part of 'shall not live' is there not being realized.
No judging here. If I'm pointing to anyone I have three fingers pointing back at myself. I've been guilty myself of procrastinating but with the Holy Spirits help, never again. It is so easy to ingest some select or random Word each and every day. Is there even such a thing as 'random Word'? Reading daily or choosing not to is our individual choice.
One cannot repent too soon whereas one does not know how soon will be too late....
Our adversary the Devil would have us believe it's a difficult thing to come to Jesus when actually it's no different than a little child running to a loved one....
