Another Place - Romans 12:2

Another Place

“So, teach us to number our days,
That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
Psalms 90:12.

It is common expression when filling out an application of some sort to be asked, where do you live? Sometimes, the application will only ask about your residence. This is a question that is answered in a casual remark such as “I live at such and such, street, city, and state.


The truth is stated in a way which is truthful. You and I live in our bodies which God has stated is our dwelling. A person cannot escape out of this glob of protoplasm which some would term the torso. You are in the cage and the only way to flee this body is at death.  There is then, a release of our spirit to another realm of existence.


It seems many people do not want to face the reality that you and I are in a cell – until death takes us over. It is at that moment when freedom is at last given to us.


Worldings have a tendency to dismiss this from their minds. The reason is always the same. The word judgment comes into play.


Eventually the older we become, the less likely that we’ll accept that death plays a powerful force in our lives. The cut off date is 40 years old. The young seemingly will accept how we live before 40 rather then someone 40 years old. How many people do you know or have seen that confess to Christ after 40?


In the United States, people have accumulated wealth. There is a false belief that if you are good and give to various works that is enough to control our destiny. This is an outcome of believing that civil rights is sufficient to have control of where we go after death. As far as I can determine this is a falsehood. All around us there is that concept.


People give dollars, and this is sufficient to meet any demand for eternity. This belief is a part of our culture. Yes, people in the United States respond quickly to a disaster of nature. This nation does this quickly and it is a sign of generosity, but the Bible tells us we are to preach the word of salvation when this is done also.


The most important thing is your soul. It must have a relationship with God and His son, Jesus Christ and His spirit.




 There is a fact which intelligent persons quickly admit. It is so true many individuals do not want to talk about it. The Holy Scripture does not evade the remark in fact it upholds it many times.  Job 7:1, confirms this. 

“And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comet thou?
Then Satan answered the Lord, and said,
From going to and fro in the earth,
And from walking up and down in it.”


Psalm 37;1-2, speak to these issues.

“Fret not thyself because of evil doers,
Neither be thou against the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.”


Evil will be dealt with the same as with righteous people.  Our short time here is our destiny on this earth. Psalm 90:12, tells us the time here is brief.

“So, teach us to number our days,
That we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”


Proverbs 10:2, tells us we can prolong our days.

“Treasures of wickedness profit:
But righteousness delieveth from death.”


Proverbs 12:5-8, tells us our final hour.

“The thoughts of the righteous are right:
But the counsels of the wicked are deceit.
The words of the wicked are to lie in wait
For blood but the mouth of the upright
Shall deliver them.
The wicked are overthrown,
And are not but the house of the righteous shall stand.
A man shall be commended according to his wisdom:
But that he is of a perverse heart shall be despised.”


Ecclesiastes 3:1-3,

“To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under the heaven.
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
And a time to pluck up that which planted.
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up.”


It can quickly be seen from these events, as told to us in the Old Testament that it is obvious the writers not once hesitated to approach the subject of death. In the history of the Jewish people only, to men did not die. Abraham encountered a man who was the king of Jerusalem that did not die. Hebrews 7:10, recounts who he was.

“For who he was in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.”


Melchisedec was his name. The other man was Elijah, who was taken up in a fiery chariot.

Another Place - Romans 12:2


The fact is that we all are going to die unless His second coming arrives. There is no death for those remaining.


The fact is this is not our home we are just passing though. Our stay is short timed. It seems about eighty years is our allotted time however more and more people are reaching one hundred. This is due to health standards and medical treatments as well as homes for the aged to live with special case.


American society has made funerals, funny events. Jokes! Stories! Family activities! There is always the visiting with the family the night before the funeral. Flowers are sent! Another way is to ask gifts to be sent to the charity of choice. The casket is open so one can view the corpse one last time. You may have seen someone lean over and touch the corpse one last time. It seems the best way to bury the dead is quickly. The most stupid act is put the body in a metal vault or cement around the metal. In less than 20 years the body turns to dust and decay.



Then, there is a party who accepts death as a way of living under their control. If any millennial is known by the reader – it is my desire that you show this blog to them.  Most especially show them the following section, because it tells the truth about the philosophy of this group. The mechanism of this evil group is well known and can be shown by certain facts.


The Democratic Party now has taken up the harrow of death. All of the candidates as far as I know, adapt and embrace the new concept that the Marxist view is how a government should be run. It is false and above all, it is the attempt to control our lives.


The Progressives have openly solicited socialism in the United States. The issue is why should they not embrace Marxist ideas. This is taught from the first grade up to the university level. The soft degrees are blatant with this idea. Their rule is simple from the very beginning: take by force from those who have. It is an act of theft.


Several nations have tried to put socialism into this form of ruling and government. It always ends into a disaster for its citizens. Here are some glaring examples of the foolishness of the attempt to bring Marxism into the way of life for the government.


There are two examples which can be seen. The first is in Cuba where food is being rationed from what the various sources tell us. Such things such as chicken and eggs are in short supply. According to the media reposts in Venezuela, they are in the same position.  Protein is scarce. This happened in the Soviet Union, when the United States was selling grain during the Cold War.


The second example is how the practice of Medicare will be carried out. You must wait for a procedure to be performed. The rich people in Canada come to the United States so that they can get proper medical care and operations. Canada has flirted with socialism, as Great Britain has also.

After socialism, progressivism and communism has been adopted, it finally is set aside. The following are countries is where this has happened:

  • China
  • Soviet Union
  • East Germany
  • Cambodia
  • Vietnam
  • Argentina
  • Chile
  • Poland

It finally will happen in Cuba and Venezuela. Time is on the side of a dramatic change.


In the United States we have been flirting with socialism since 1936, when social security started. It has grown every year until now the following are untouchables:

  • Social security- socialism
  • Medicare – socialism
  • Medicaid- socialism
  • Military budget- contributed.



Personally, my thought is we should oppose such creeps, ignorant, and evil people such as the Democratic Party that is putting forth such candidates for President.


Socialism, progressivism, and communism will destroy the Constitution of the United States.



There is no place that can be pointed out where Jesus said turn your life over to the government. Jesus was constantly telling people to control their own wellbeing and personal affairs. He always was discussing personal responsibility. The place you should read to see what he said is read the 5, 6, and 7 chapters of Matthew.


Never forget it was a committee that saw to it that the Son of God was murdered.


They were the local government that consisted of judges, lawyers, and money changers. They were respected people in that society. Committees are always dangerous. Generally, this government among themselves is a democracy. This is a tyranny of one. Again, Christ never accepted this!





  1. Death comes to all.
  2. Prepare yourself for death.
  3. Socialism is a failure, and
  4. Christ said, “It is the person.”

God Bless Our Republic.




“Jesus comes with pow’r to gladden,
When love shines in,
Every life that woe can sadden,
When love shines in.

Love will teach us how to pray,
Love will drive the gloom away,
Turn our darkness into day–
When love shines in.


When love shines in,
When love shines in,
How the heart is tuned to singing,
When love shines in,
When love shines in,
Joy and peace to others bringing–
When love shines in!


How the world will grow with beauty,
When love shines in,
And the heart rejoice in duty,
When love shines in.

Trials may be sanctified,
And the soul in peace abide,
Life will all be glorified–
When love shines in.



Darkest sorrow will grow brighter,
When love shines in,
And the heaviest burden lighter,
When love shines in.


’Tis the glory that will throw
Light to show us where to go;
O the heart shall blessing know–
When love shines in.


We may have unfading splendor,
When love shines in,
And a friendship true and tender,
When love shines in.

When earth’s vict’ries shall be won,
And our life in heav’n begun,
There will be no need of sun–
When love shines in.
