MORNINGTIME 2084

 

And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. AND HE DIVIDED UNTO THEM, (the 2 brothers), his living (their inheritance).  And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance, (his inheritance), with riotous living. Luke 15:12-13. This is the story of the Prodigal Son, adjusted to, "the church of America" today. Most TV preachers today subscribe to the "prosperity gospel" and its claims of “get your best life now" and don't worry about later, theology. They really do want "god" to give them everything they want, NOW. The difference is, these people want "their inheritance" now, and never do come back to God, BECAUSE GENERALLY, THEY NEVER CAME FROM GOD. They've been handed a few scattered promises, told to "say the prayer", and whatever they ask for, if they have faith, God will give to them whatever they ask for. AMERICA IS THE PRODIGAL SON AND WE'RE NOT GOING BACK TO FATHER because our Pride and Arrogance are way more powerful than our interest in, or need of and for, Forgiveness. As a country, we have not hit the bottom of the barrel, and never will. Our collective conscience is so seared, only the True Believers understand the Love of the Father and His Mercy and Grace. Only the Believers are running to Christ as fast as they can go, stumbles, trips, and all. Whatever it takes to run to Daddy. This life now is preparing us for our Best Life Later, on the other side. The prodigal, and Adam, lived with Father. The prodigal and Adam thought they could do better elsewhere. The Holy Spirit is calling us sinners, (prodigals) back to Father through Salvation in Christ. Only those who see their life as pig slop will run to Father in Humble Contrition asking for Forgiveness, receive it, and KNOW that they have been, and will continue to, Be Blessed.
