"There All Along''
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." (John 1: 1-2,14)
The thing that makes Jesus important is that he is God. Scripture gives him dominion over everything. To a believer, that says it all. We have titles to property and that protects us from theft. We have lockboxes in banks; safes in our homes or businesses; insurance against loss and laws that guarantee all of it, but somehow that doesn't prevent the maker of all things from taking everything, anytime. There is no law we can pass that says otherwise. He can take it or leave it! I have said, "Heaven's my home, I'm just here on a visit" and that is true. Consequently, everything I have on this earth is "By Loan and On Loan" also. Just because one may not believe this does not amount to a hill of beans. Outside of Holy Scripture from the Holy Bible, we have been taught lies. Especially is we have been led to believe anything that is abominable to God. Over the past five decades, we have placed 'laws' on the books that are abominations and subject to judgement by Him. We decide killing babies is acceptable. We decide prayer and The Bible violate our Constitution. We think homosexuality is wonderful and precious. We allow same-sex marriage and 'transgender'. We demand anti-racial behavior and practice it at some time. We are ignorant of history and wish to destroy it. We allow illegal voting to determine who sits at the Oval Desk in Washington and we crucify the one man who has done what is right because he dares to do it. We re-elect the same empty promises and complain that nothing gets done. And, now, we are considering doing away with our Constitution, Flag and National Anthem because of ignorance brought about by poor teaching. We have believed lies, innuendo and downright false news for so long, we walk in total darkness and think we are something.
We are something. Something ELSE!
''In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." And the "Word'' is ''The Lord"!
And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
