This Far and No Farther

My Musings – “He changes times and seasons; He sets up kings and deposes them.” And the list goes on and on.  God is sovereign (possessing supreme or ultimate power). Kingdoms rise and fall at His bidding. He tells the seas this far you may go and no further.  I suspect He has also set limits on how far man may go.  We may think that the world is out of control, or that global warming has doomed us, but God is still sovereign – this far you may go and no farther.

In the days of Noah, the inclination of man was only evil all the time.  Talk about out of control.  Yet God finally said, you’ve gone far enough and “cleansed” the world with the flood, leaving only Noah (the last righteous man) and his family.  God’s remnant.  Perhaps we are reaching God’s limit once again.  This time the judgement will be final, purified by fire, and only the elect (saved), His remnant will survive to enjoy eternal life.

My Advice – Make sure you are part of the remnant.  Accept Christ.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
