"God isn't fixing this!" Well, why should He?

I recently saw a newspaper headline that read:  “God isn’t fixing this!”  Well, the question is:  Why should He?  WE (the whole world) got ourselves into this mess because we have been ignoring HIM for many millennia!  Pretending there is no God, or dabbling around in “religion” and “religiosity” has only served to separate us from Him.

There is a great chasm between us and YHWH!  “Grace” never replaced obedience; and the fact that “God knows my heart” never absolved anyone from their responsibilities to “get themselves right” with YHWH.  The ONLY way to do that is to KNOW Scripture – all of it, from Genesis to Revelation!  Scripture is clear on Who YHWH is and what He expects of us – yet, like Aaron’s sons who were killed for “adding to” their sacrifice (Leviticus 10), we all have strayed (Isaiah 53:6); and, as a result, we must all face the consequences…

We have come up with religions and denominations, each one insisting they and only they have the Truth.  But the reality is, the Bible teaches YHWH/Y’shua/Torah!  Nothing in Scripture says “Jesus brought religion” or that we are allowed to start “religions” or make up our own “holy days” supposedly designed to honor Him (Matthew 7:23), or to pick and choose what we want from the Bible.   But this is exactly what mankind as a whole has done!  

And when we are not busy “cherry picking” Scripture, we are at each other’s throats about the Sabbath, the mo’edim (Biblical Feasts) vs. man-made “holy days, arguments about whether the earth is flat or round, trying to outdo each other with the scariest “conspiracy theories” and myriad other issues - all accomplishing NOTHING and merely designed to prove “I’m right and you’re wrong!”  Honestly, WHO is truly looking to YHWH/Y’shua/Torah (Matthew 7:13-14)?  Who is doing HIS will, obeying HIS Divine Instructions, doing their best to be a light in this dark world (Matthew 5:14-16)?

Brothers and sisters, we are living in a broken and dangerous world that will ONLY be “fixed” upon Y’shua’s return.  As many unfortunate innocents have already discovered, nothing guarantees us a tomorrow.   The ONLY thing we are guaranteed is eternal life IF we have accepted YHWH as our ELOHIM and His Divine Son who martyred Himself on our behalf…which unconditionally includes obedience to Torah (Divine Instructions in Righteousness)!  No more “cherry picking”; no more “lukewarm religiosity” – Scripture (not our personal opinions) is ALL that matters! 

We don’t have time to play around anymore because the world IS headed for gehenna!   Please read Revelation 5 through 8 for just a glimpse of what is not only about to happen, but what is ALREADY happening.  Scripture amply reveals that WE cannot stop this!  That proverbial snowball is in motion.  All we can really do is to quit squabbling and mouthing off and fiddling around, and stop pretending we’re holy and get into Scripture to truly discover HOW TO BE holy so we can TRULY be a LIGHT in this dark world while things unfold exactly as we see in the Books of Daniel and Revelation.  Y'shua's return is closer than we know...and only THEN will mankind be restored....

  1. Shali, as stated before, based on recent events, I've question the interpretation many scholars (Lahaye, Jenkins, Jeffrey, Lindsey, Robertson) promoted regarding the End Times and Last Days. That's not saying I question Scripture, for I believe the events (Yeshayahu 17, Ezekiel 38 &39, Revelation 16) will happen.
