MORNINGTIME 2624
 
LOVE NOT THE WORLD, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father IS NOT IN HIM.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.  And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: BUT HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF GOD ABIDETH FOR EVER. 1 John 2:15-17. Think of the world as the Titanic, and the Will of God as the Lifeboat. The Titanic was a very large luxury cruise ship that hit an iceberg and sunk in the year 1912, and hundreds died. It was the maiden voyage and the captain said, "God Himself can't sink this ship". God didn't have to, the captain's own foolishness did that. The captain didn't listen to "Godly Wisdom" and they ran into The Iceberg. Because of his choice, every man, woman, and child was affected by his choice not to listen. Adam and Eve didn't listen to Godly Wisdom and they ran into Sin. Every man, woman, and child have also been affected by Adam's disobedience, and will die. Christ is the Lifeboat and ONLY those who will listen to, AND OBEY His Terms, can get onboard. You must Love Christ and turn your back on ALL your worldly stuff. When your name is called to get in the Lifeboat, you must do so immediately. If you hesitate, or try to go back for your worldly stuff, you'll miss out and die. There isn't time to try to enjoy one more worldly pleasure, and then run to the Lifeboat, you'll find "it left 10 minutes ago". The captain of the ship makes the rules because IT'S HIS SHIP. Christ has spelled out exactly how you can Be Saved from this world of Sin, but ONLY by His Rules. When The Captain says you must leave that thing behind, and you start arguing with Him, you'll miss out and die. His Word is the ONLY Way. Is the Captain mean to say "No", or does He know something you don't, and He's actually looking out for your Safety? Only His Word, The Bible, can show you The Way to Safety. Study It, and, Be Blessed.
