Tell The Truth!

Your Choices

I have seen all the works
That are done under the sun;
and behold,
All is vanity and vexation of spirit,
That which is crooked cannot
Be made straight;
and that which is
Wanting cannot be numbered.”
Ecclesiastes 1:14-15.

There is an attribute of the Lord that people do not remember. It is God that lets each of us to decide which path we will take. What worries most of us is that when a choice is made then consequences always follow that decision.

People are reluctant to come to grips with this fact. The result of what we do is constantly before each one of us. Like it or not! Everyone of us will seek to evade the truth.

Let me give you an example how people will lie. The next time you know someone who goes and comes back from Las Vegas, Nevada ask the person if they won. The answer generally is “I broke even” it is impossible to break even. Here are the ways money is spent there:

  • Food,
  • Lodging,
  • Taxi to and from airport,
  • Tips,
  • At home baby sitter, and
  • Recuperating from trip

Tell The Truth!Yes, some portions of the trip may be paid by a third person. Remember Las Vegas, Nevada is a city built by losers. That place was never constructed to allow you to rest and to relax. Time slips away from the visitors. This does not give to each greater health and a mind at peace, fools are the only people who would ever say, ‘I broke even”.


HE  HAD  MUCH

It is only natural that we should want to laugh and enjoy our surroundings. The pleasure that comes from relaxing unleashes great power for us.  Yet it was Solomon who was the author of the words in,  Ecclesiastes 2:2.

 “I said of laughter, it is mad: and
Of mirth, what doeth it?”

After a time, words and certain thoughts are disturbing to each of us. Look around you and see what certain comedians consider what is humorous. Tell me what is funny when a woman, holds us the likeness of the severed head of Donald Trump. Or, some sadistic liberal comic went to kill a person.

Is this supposed to be funny? Only Hollywood crack-heads, whore- mongers, & queers would even EVER think this would resemble humor.

The vulgar language in the print and spoken media never was laughable it is even less so now on T.V.  The only thing you hear are the laugh track in the background.

Solomon was right when he wrote such is vain.


ALCOHOL

This has been a curse on the human race. As soon as it is put into your mouth it goes directly to the brain. Donald Trump has said he does not drink because of his brother Freddie who was an alcoholic. President Trump states he might be one also. So, he doesn’t use it. It was in Ecclesiastes 2:3 in said the choice to drink was there. He found it a void also.

“I sought in mine heart to give
Myself unto wine, yet acquainting
Mine heart with wisdom; and to lay
Hold on folly, till I might see what
Was that good for the sons of men,
Which they should do under the
Haven all the days of their life.”

In tomorrow’s paper, look and see the number of auto collisions that have alcohol as a contributing factor in the number of deaths on the road.

The community I live in is largely Hispanic. These men think they need to drink beer to have a good time and relax. It’s a macho thing. As a practicing lawyer, I see the following when alcohol is used:

  • Murder,
  • Rape,
  • Molesting of minors,
  • Wife beatings, and
  • Theft

Solomon wrote this cannot be a valid choice. Leave it alone.

 

BUILDING HOUSES

One great house was only a place where the nobility or very rich lived. The middle class and the poor lived in small places. This has all changed since about 1945. There has been such a large increase in wealth that now great houses are constructed. Ecclesiastes 2:4, indicates he thought this was the answer to living and happiness.

Absurd! That is crazy! That is like expecting a building made out of clay bricks where chemistry is taught that the bricks can bring back chemistry. Solomon saw the foolishness of building ground edifices. Who do you think built Solomon’s Temple?

“I made me great works; I builded
Me houses: I planted me vineyards.”

In the western part of Texas there is a place there that is called the Permian Basin which has one of  the largest oil and gas fields in the world. Men have become enormously wealthy. Big houses are money places. You can only be in one room at a time.


MISCELLANEOUS

Solomon said he has built gardens and orchards. There were huge pools of water. Then he bred pedigree animals. Bread so that his cattle was the finest.

There were huge collection of silver and gold that could buy all of the delight for a King. This is told in Ecclesiastes 2:8-9, discusses this.

I gathered me also silver and
Gold, and the peculiar treasure of
Kings and of the provinces: I gat me
 Men singers and women singers, and
The delights of the sons of men, as
Musical instruments, and that of all sorts.

So, I was great, and increased
More than all that were before me in
Jerusalem: also my wisdom remained
With me.”

In each of us there is the desire to accumulate wealth. Actually, what we do is hoard the valuables. However, what we are actually doing is preparing it for the next owners so at death what you own will not be going with you into eternity.

The piling up earthly valuables by choice is a sign of a lack of maturity.


POLITICS

In the election of 2016 the person who was supposed to win failed. There were so many reasons for her political demise that one cannot name all of them. Those who supported her – still have trouble accepting the fact she went down in flames of defeat. Some of the worst people gravitate to politics. You wonder if these creeps have any morals or righteousness in their souls.

  • Obama – a liar,
  • Bush 43 – lied to us about weapons
  • Clinton – whore monger
  • Bush 41 – liar- “read my lips”
  • Reagan – children a problem
  • Carter – confused economically

When a person chooses a politician to support then trouble and disappointment will come. Anyone who follows a man or a political party will always be disappointed.

All one has to do is look at the terms of those men when the riots and upheaval happened. It seems these men have never been taught the ability to govern. This notion has been able to survive these incompetent men. The worst that I have ever known is the liberal muslim-leaning hater of Christianity liar Obama. One issue that perplexes me is what was his real name

Never allow politicians to lie to you. It has the earmarks of Satan. Men who give their adult lives to politics are fools.


WHAT TO DESIRE

We must analyze the surroundings we find ourselves. We must not be converted to the physical things of this world.  We should reason together.

First, we are humans,
Second, we are born to die,
Third, we can do nothing about a physical death, it happens,
Fourth, we must conclude we are not a glob of cells without any real meaning,
Fifth, we should examine the claims of Jesus Christ. He makes sure what he did for each one of us, and
Sixth, we know the promises us forgiveness of sin and then the gift of eternal life. No one no other religion can make this clam.

There are some who want to pressure us that their way is the way. In I Peter 3:12, it instructs us that God almighty listens to our remarks and prayers.

 “For the eyes of the Lord are
Over the righteous, and his ears are
Open unto the prayers: but the face
Of the Lord is against them that do
Evil.”

The God who we serve wants to help us at all times.

Your author has never sought to be any of the following:

  • Disciples of Christ,
  • Roman Catholic,
  • Baptist,
  • Presbyterian,
  • Methodist,
  • Greek Orthodox, and
  • Or any other group.

Your choice should be a Christian decision. One should not feel imposed to accept the philosophy of men as each group creates a series of regulations and rules for their interpretation.

The New Testament is our only rule for faith and practice.

It was Solomon who gave us these words through the inspirations of the Holy Spirit in, Ecclesiastes 2:18-19.

“Yea, I hated all my labour
which I had taken under the sun:
because I should leave it unto the man
that shall be after me.
And who knoweth whether he
Shall be a wise man or a fool? Yet
Shall he have rule over all my labour.
Wherein I have labored, and
Wherein I have shewed myself wide
Under the sun. this is also vanity.”

In II Timothy 4:3-4,  Paul knew for certain what was about to happen.

“For the time will come when
They will not endure sound doctrine;
But after their own lusts shall they
Heap to themselves teachers, having
Itching ears;
And they shall turn away their
Ears from the truth, and shall be
Turned into fables.”


When men decide to leave God out of their choices, then – chaos will come just as sure as the sun arose in the east this morning.

You can have your needs, and your wants met when serving God and His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. When a person decides his choice is other than Christ Jesus he or she is a stupid ignorant selfish mentally deprived human being. The young of this age are named the millennials’. Using their language these people have been described in the previous sentence. These young people are without solid characters.


There is a Latin phrase that means it has past and no future it is read-“Sine die”.


CONCLUSION

  1. Weigh your choices,
  2. Decide what is eternal,
  3. Let the New Testament be your guide, and
  4. Look to the future.

KEEP THE FAITH!

In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb
Are your garments spotless, are they white as snow

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb

Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There`s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

[Refrain]
