There may be humor in the guy who forgets his anniversary and his cute wife hits him over the head with a paper towel or thumps him on the forehead. There may be a chuckle when someone forgets to check themselves before leaving the bathroom and toilet paper is hanging from their pants as they walk down the work hallway. We are prone to forget things and sometimes often, but there are some things that are too dangerous to forget.
Those who choose not to retain the knowledge of God will lose their soul. “But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it–not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it–they will be blessed in what they do” (James 1:25).
Blessings flow to those who remember the Lord and when this life is over they will enjoy eternal life.
“Be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them” (Deuteronomy 4:9).
“For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only he who now restrains will do so, until he be taken out of the way” (2 Thessalonians 2:7). You may have read my post titled “THE BIBLE on the History Channel”, if not, you should read the post and the comments. I believe the information is rewarding and compliments Deuteronomy 4:9, above, particularly the part on teaching your children.
May you not forget the word of God as it is written and may you seek to retain his knowledge for the world is working hard to deceive. Rightly dividing the word of truth will be required, because the world is using the Bible to deceive. This concept is not foreign, but old. Satan tried the same with Jesus in the wilderness.
Just because someone holds the Bible and teaches from the Bible does not mean this person is saved and knows the Lord. Remember the Pharisees?
It’s dangerous to forget that belief in Jesus will incur persecution. Think it not strange. They persecuted Jesus and they will persecute you.

The informed have known for years that the original family is under attack. The informed have also known that before homosexuality became a huge item in America the enemy was often found in ones own home. Cain murders Abel, Ham mocks his father, Noah, by looking at his nakedness, Jacob deceives his brother Esau and Absalom tries to take his father’s throne and many more stories like these are found in scripture.
In fact, chaos began with God. The Tower of Babel was one demonstration of unity that God interrupted. Why? The people were not unified in giving God glory, but rather to make a name for themselves, which contradicts God’s reason for our creation. This contradiction in-turn creates chaos.
If the family is to unify, it must be under the umbrella of giving God all the glory. By contradicting your purpose, you create chaos in your life. Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked (Ecclesiastes 7:13)?
There are churches picketing and putting up signs against homosexual marriage. Some are even bold enough to disrupt funerals and cause all sorts of drama, but is this wise? When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them (Proverbs 16:7).
What should the church do? Unify under the umbrella of giving God ALL the glory. Not actors or actresses. Not Prada or Brahmin. Not houses or hummers. God will straighten the chaos created by our contradiction. Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to keep your eyes and your affection on things above where Christ sits upon the throne. The measure of chaos in your home will diminish and when the world sees your good works they will glorify God.
God interrupted the people at the Tower of Babel to bring confusion because of their agenda. I can only imagine what he would bring to the people who are unified in giving him glory. God always brings something, but you choose what it will be. Peace or chaos?

Someone told me about a Christian defeated. I wondered who this man could be. I searched the scriptures ravenously and could not find where a Christian was not set free. I thought to myself if indeed this exist it must be outside the scriptures you see.
This man said, I saw churches destroyed and church homes demolished. I saw Christians placed in jail and even fired. Christians removed from the military and the Senate. I saw Christians mocked in the media and even losing ground on the moral issue of abortion and gay marriage.
I asked myself this man must be right. Christian’s have been defeated look at their plight. Really! Look at their plight. But out of the dark stood a man on the cross his name that continues to shake the nation. The name above all names. The King of kings and Lord of lords. He is the Wonderful Counselor and the Prince of Peace. Jesus is his name.
This man has accomplished what no other could do. He rose from the dead and set the captives free. See this man who said, Christians are defeated has forgotten that he has been made free.
Are you defeated? No! This can’t be. For into the grave shall all men proceed and those who know Jesus will wake up with everlasting life indeed.
