MOMENTARY MONARCHS AND OTHER DISAPPEARING TERRORS
In my youth, we sang a song in the church called "Turn your eyes upon Jesus."
"Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full, and his wonderful face and the things of the world will grow strangely dim in the light of his glory and grace."
That song captures the theme of my video tonight concerning the current situation of our nation and our society and how it's affecting Christians.
I have often taught the principle that you will go toward or be influenced by what you look at. This is why media outlets and even our Internet are so controlling and damning to the soul of this nation.
We are being manipulated in so many ways. This younger generation is being ripped apart by what they look at and take into their souls. The evidence of that is the high rate of suicide that is happening among them.
They have been sold a lie about the future, and even themselves, convinced they are worthless.
Psalms 73 speaks of the same condition on the day this Psalm was written. Asaph, the author of this Pslam and one of Israel's spiritual leaders, found himself discouraged and weak because of what he had his eyes on around him.
He looked at those who were wealthy, pompous, egotistical, and manipulating those who were less than them. It made him fearful of the future.
The principles of God are the same in every age that we live. It was just as accurate in Asaph Day as it is today. We look around and see the prosperity of the wicked, and the spirit of fear tells us that they will take over the world and we will be no more.
Faith becomes weakened, and we start to stumble until we turn into the sanctuary of our God and get our eyes back on his unfailing word.
What does it mean to go into the sanctuary of God?
We know that God is everywhere and is in us of a truth. So, do I go into a building, or do I find a group of people that I need to join?
Yes, and yes, but that's not enough. You can go into the most beautiful churches in your city and join a group of spiritual people, but that's not enough.
Put it this way: God himself is the sanctuary that you go into. It's simply obeying Jesus when he laid out the two commandments for us?.
Love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart and the neighbor as they self.
Keep your eyes on Jesus, and your heart will never fail you because He will draw you to Himself.
