Matthew 24:44-51 (King James Version)

44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

As God's people we are to live each day rejoicing for the Lord has made it and we are to be glad in it. The Lord provides the blessings to do just so by the fruit of the Spirit; Galatians 5:22-23 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.,along with a sound mind; 2 Timothy 1:7 7For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

In Matthew's verse 45 we are told that 'meat will be given in due season.' I believe the 'meat' is sustenance, as well as truth.

We are well equipped by our Lord and Savior with everything we need each and every single day. We are to always be prepared for His (unexpected) return; within our hearts and minds - our thoughts focused on spiritual things. One of my favorite spiritual things is believing tonight, this very night, could be the night when the whole world is awakened. Suddenly and unexpectedly, and while my mind has no accurate concept of what this great and awful day will really be like, my heart jumps for joy thinking about the 'twinkling of an eye' which will change everything in a mere instant. The New Jerusalem; Heaven on the earth that the meek ones are heirs to. The ones who are focusing on their meekness, as well as the other fruits of the Spirit, for we know our enemy is already defeated and the demise of that enemy is as imminent and swift as His return. Rejoice and make a joyful noise unto the Lord for He is the only One that is worthy of all our praise; the only One who is able to wage war with the beast; the only One worthy to open the Book of Life - Jesus Christ. The One who has equipped us to not only to endure the battle but to be the victors.

All our hope and trust in Him because all His words are true as are the promises to His people which are far better than anything this world has to offer. Be always willing to follow Him with knowing that there is nothing to look back for, not even for a second because the land of milk and honey is what lies ahead...and it's streets are paved in gold.

Time, Relativism & God

Time is a wonderful teacher but unfortunately, it kills all of its students ??

Well, that statement is not as compelling as one might expect it to be. Because first of all its connotation is negative. At least for those of us who believe we have not been descended from monkeys and our societies’ driving forces shouldn’t be based on Natural Selection Theory of Darwin, this projection of time and future at the same time is brutal. I mean, accept that statement and inevitably become the victim of a brutal slayer, time!

"So what?" Dick Cheney said after reading the first paragraph! Here is a point:

According to experiments of quantum physics in science, an observer of a reality and the reality of being observed, are not accounted as separate. The observer simultaneously plays a part in creating the reality he or she is observing. Put simply is this; human mind creates and controls the reality and therefore it is always confined in his/her cage of point of view.

"My fellow citizens, as had been said before there is no God" Said a friend of Mr. Cheney, abruptly after reading the second paragraph!

Now having quantum physics saying this, It is crystal clear that as one challenges the intelligent account of life, he or she automatically becomes trapped into his personal version of reality simply because he is concluding based on only one of the facets of reality which is being observed by him or her. It is simple; because Our mind is not ubiquitous, challenge God and become known as a dumbest person who is trapped into his ever-limited world of point of views!

Therefore, if anyone cares to pursuit happiness, quantum physics also proves the necessity of referring to an ultimate, comprehensive, beyond humanity’s and supreme point of view of life rather than the humanistic or evolutionary account of being. Why? Because, the only standpoint that encompasses all the creations’ point of views is God’s one.

Now talking about the time here is an "objective" account of time from our creator and cited in Holy Quran.

In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

I swear by the time,

Most surely man is in loss,

Except those who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to endurance.

Chapter 103. Al-Asr (Eventide, The epoch) - Holy Quran

And this is to show how I was inspired by this citation to make a film about our times. Needless to say at the end of the day, it is 'my' ever-limited story of our times and nothing more.

Keep the faith.

1 Thessalonians 5:2-4

2For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. 3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. 4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

These words, as all the Lord’s words, are very compelling and thought provoking. When you think about a thief coming in the middle of the night, when you are most unaware and unprepared, it can be a rather frightening prospect. Not just for property stolen or damaged, but also for the possibility of personal harm.

He comes like a thief in the night because the vast majority of people are unaware and most definitely unprepared. They are asleep; going through the motion of their life with paying God very little heed, if any. The Lord tells us that if we knew when the thief was to arrive, we would have remained watchful and vigilant. But alas, there is no way to know when or even if the thief might arrive. It is even reasoned that since he has not yet arrived, who knows, maybe the thief will never come. This is what most people desire, for the thief to never come so they can remain safe and comfortable in their slumber.

Jesus is not an ordinary thief by any means just as He is not an ordinary man. By that I mean Jesus is 100% man and 100% God. Most thieves take goods which do not belong to them, but everything belongs to the Lord because He has created it. Isaiah 45:7 (King James Version) 7I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. And He is in control of it. All of it. From beginning to end because He is the Alpha and the Omega. A righteous man will find comfort in this while a wicked man should be greatly troubled.

The wicked do not want the Lord to come because He brings their destruction with Him, and there will be no place for which to hide themselves. They know He is coming but would rather deceive themselves and others that He is not because otherwise some would conduct their lives differently and possibly be saved. The Lord comes as a thief in the night because most people are not looking for Him to come. Actually, truth be known, they are not just not looking for His return, but more don’t want Him to come. Most people get pretty aggravated when their slumber is disturbed and for those who now sleep they will be very startled to say the least.
One reason most do not want Jesus to return is people love their lives. They are comfortable in their lives, even with all the strife taking place all around the world, they want to carry on as they are and always have, because that is the way it has been since the beginning of time. Peaks and valleys throughout history to be sure, but the world has and always will maintain because it always has, hasn’t it. We are supposed to love our God above everything and anybody else, even our parents. This includes ourselves as well as our own lives. John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. And Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

This is not to say the Lord does not want us to be happy, quite the opposite and He is the joy and peace in our hearts because He is the giver and taker of all things. Jesus gives life more abundantly and makes this life bearable through the fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.)

Jesus is not an ordinary thief because He does not come just to take away, He comes to give so much more than this life could ever offer under the current fallen condition. For those written in the Book of Life, He brings eternal life.

How one views the return of the Lord may well reveal the condition of the heart. The wicked ones do not ever want Him to return and deny that He will; the lost souls are comfortable in their slumber and do not want their eyes opened any sooner than they are ready to have them opened and are not ready for His return; and His people whom desire nothing else more than for His will to be done on earth, wait patiently and longingly trusting in all His ways.

As always, until the great and awful day of the Lord arrives, and arrive it will, He is our strength. Praise His holy name today and forever and ever.
