I don't know about you, but I love the old Star Trek Series that came out during my younger days. It was the "Buck Rogers" of our time. I think I've watched every episode and I can even tell within a few seconds of the start of a show, which episode is going to play. I still enjoy Star Trek today and I think we will agree that it was one of the most popular Sci-Fi programs ever created.
There were many episodes where the Enterprise would run into a space Warning Buoy that would warn of an impending doom if they didn't heed it's warnings seriously. As fate would have it our heroes would always succumb to the fate of the warning, but have no fear, they would always escape the ordeal with only a few scratches. Don't you wish life was like this?
Just like in Star Trek, God has sent us a Warning Buoy to warn us of a possible disastrous future in our lives. This warning buoy is the Bible. God is trying to warn the inhabitants of this planet that we need to realize that there is coming a point where time will close, eternity continues, and a judgment or reward will be administered to everyone who has ever lived on this planet.
The notion that God will render judgment on Mankind, is to some, fairy tales, or foolishness. Others will say they do not see the Bible as something they need to hearken to or feel God is not relevant in their lives. They simply do not see the need for a savior or see the truths of the Bible.
Even though God sends out His Holy Spirit to reach His lost creation, they do not hearken to His call. Without listening to the Holy Spirit, one will not be convicted of their sins and will not see the need for a savior. The Holy Spirit is needed in the life of a believer in Christ, and will help guide one into all truth and knowledge of what God is doing in these last days. The rejection of the Holy Spirit's convictions will lead to destruction of those who reject His calling to repentance.
Again, the "Buoy" I refer to here is the Bible, the spreading of the Gospel, and the teaching of the soon return of Jesus. To those who do not believe in God, to them, this is foolishness.
|1 Corinthians 1:18) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."
(1 Corinthians 2:13) Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
(1 Corinthians 2:14) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
So, what is this buoy asking of Mankind? The gist of this book is simply that God is asking you to step in faith and trust Jesus as your Lord and savior. For many, this seems impractical and to others their attempt in the past to understand God and His word has been met with disappointment or confusion. Without the Holy Spirit, it will not make sense.
All that God is asking of any of us, is that we open our hearts to Jesus and to take that step of faith towards Him. For some this will mean that you need to step out again in child like faith to take the hand of God and he will give you His Holy Spirit. God will not let you down if you make a true acceptance of Jesus.
If you are one who has not been heeding this Warning Buoy that God has placed on this planet then please reconsider where you are now. Time will one day close and the decisions you make now will determine the future you will have.
On a final Note: God also has a Final Warning that He is giving Mankind just before the Return of Jesus. It is found in God's Warning Buoy, the Bible, in Revelation 14:6-11. It's called The Three Angels Messages... Be sure to read this topic... It is an important message for you and your loved ones!
If you do not know or have drifted away from God, please consider making a change in your life and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
Understand that Satan does not want you to believe in Christ and will continue to deceive and misdirect you from a decision to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. He will try to hide this Warning Beacon, God's truth, from you in order to destroy your future and God's plans for your life.
