No New Resolution, Just carrying on regardless.

 



This year I'm hoping to write more blog posts than I did last year, only 22. That's an average "time space" between posts of about 16 days, or more than two weeks. Not very good at all. 

Since I've dedicated this blog to talking about God's love, His kindness, His faithfulness and everything He's done for me, I'm going to try to write a post a day in honour of my God this year. We'll see how it goes.

Who is this God I call "My God?" you may ask. That would be the Lord God almighty, the Father of Jeshua otherwise known as the Son of God. He has many names, Jahweh, Elohim and a number of others.

His son Jeshua, who came to reveal the truth to all who seek Him also has many names, I Am, Messiah, Lord and so on. The Son of God and the son of man was raised from the dead after living His whole life according to God's law and being judged worthy of ruling over God's creation. In Him I put my trust. Trusted by the Creator, trusted by Geoff.

I'm an old man now. I also have Asperger's syndrome so my social abilities are rather useless so you can imagine what kind of abuse I've endured over those many many years. 

I was reading last night in the book of Matthew 24 verse 9-14.

9) "You will then be handed over for punish-

ment and execution; and men of all nations

will hate you for your allegiance to me. 10) Many

will fall from their faith; they will betray

one another and hate one another. 11) Many

false prophets will arise, and will mislead

many; 12)  and as lawlessness spreads, men's love

for one another will grow cold. 13) But the man

who holds out to the end will be saved. 14) And

this gospel of the Kingdom will be pro-

claimed throughout the earth as a testimony

to all nations; and then the end will come.

When I read that it made me think about how difficult my time in this world has been, how many times I've been belittled for my belief in Jesus, how many times I've been beaten up, how many times I've had to endure unspeakable abuse, well despite all of that I've remained loyal and have endured. I've held out. Strangely people seem to respect and admire my faithfulness for some reason.

Today the onslaught on people of faith has become not only obvious but it seems to have escalated to an insane degree. Clinging to the word of God written in the Bible, praying to someone you really believe in and trust is essential. 

You have a choice; Do you choose life or do you choose death? Choose life. 

This life we are experiencing isn't for ever, only a time and then it will come to and end. After that there are only two destinations and I know where I want to land up. The other place isn't at all pleasant.

Our souls do live for ever, one way or another.

The Bible is the truth, where else do you think you are going to find truth if you dismiss the Author of truth, where are you going to go if you "Give Up?" What do you think will happen if you turn your back on God and forget about Him? Do you think God will care about you when all hell breaks loose? or do you think it would probably be best to be faithful and loyal so He can care about you?

Men have turned their backs on God and forgotten Him, not a good idea. Don't be one of those, hang in there and don't ever forget that God the father and His Son both love you like no one else ever could.

It's been worth it. Where else can I go to find what this world has no interest in revealing. If I wrote about the innumerable times Jesus has stepped in and changed a very difficult situation I've landed up in to my favour, I would be writing for ever.



So today is the third of January and I've started moving boxes and the small stuff over to my new home, it's quite cool if you think about it, a new year, a new home and a new start for Geoff, lets see what the Lord has in store for the rest of the year. It's going to be interesting, of that much I'm sure

Bless you Lord, may You have a fantastic year.

Blessings to all. Geoff.

  1. Hi Geoff,
    this place is certainly not the end when we are in the Lord. The place I was taken to in my near death experience was absolutely beautiful and indescribable.

  2. Hi Brenda.
    ???? I'm afraid you are going to have to enlighten me before I can reply to your comment. What in Heaven are you talking about?
    Love, Geoff.
