Insatiable

Insatiable

Proverbs 27:20

“Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.”

Imagine Hell for a moment, as awful as that is. The Scriptures say that “Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your coming” (Isaiah 14:9); it will take all that come to it and even today it is swallowing people by the thousands. 150, 000 people die every 24 hours and most of them are not right with God. That should break your heart.

Therefore, Hell is never full, never satisfied, always seeking more victims, more souls to torment forever. Destruction never rests. Just look around you, watch the news, listen to the radio and you will see that destruction is rampant. Remember all the school shootings, the over populated prisons, the 157 million babies that have been destroyed in the womb, world war 1, 2 and every other war, the destruction of marriages through divorce, the mass drug and alcohol use that destroys the mind, the terrorists who cut off heads and run planes into towers, the huge pornography industry that destroys relationships and perverts the mind, the destructive words people speak to each other, tearing them down with their tongues, and the deadly behavior of the billions of hearts that refuse to submit to their Maker. There is no end to destructions apatite, it is insatiable.

This unquenchable thirst also abides in the heart of man. He looks at what he does not have and longs for it with passion. This greed compels him to do all he can get what he wants, and once he has it he longs for more. Although pleased for a moment, he is never satisfied, never content, always needing more. He gets the perfect woman, until another woman walks by. He leaves the one for the other, but still is not content. His cravings take him deeper into sin, driving his life into further depravity. He gets money but needs more, must have more. He gambles, he steps on people at work to get their position, even dirtying their name so he can grasp what they have, but still his lust is not full. He gets the newest fad, but a newer one quickly takes its place and once again he is driven for more. His life is a chasing of the wind, a grasping of oil. He will never have enough and his ravenous greed will lead him to the pit of hell. Beneath the earth, hell is moved with excitement for his arrival. Is this you my friend? Do you still lust for the world, or have you been born again?

John 3:3 “most assuredly I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Great is His Name!

Great is His Name!

Isaiah 45:5-7

“I am the LORD, and there is no other; there is no God besides Me. I will gird you, though you have not known Me, that they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other; I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.”

If you don’t get anything else out of this message, get the fact that the God of all creation is absolutely amazing, and there is none that compares to HIM! We sing songs that glorify Him, we speak of His greatness but we have no idea how magnificent He truly is. The mighty angels of heaven adore Him, they worship Him continually and do His bidding, waiting to obey His commands (Hebrews 1:6, Psalms 103:19- 22). Kings cast their crowns at His feet in adoration, all of their splendor is laid down before Him (Revelations 4:8- 11). If we will not praise Him the rocks will cry out; the trees clap their hands, and all of creation rejoices at His wonders (Isaiah 55:12).

There is no God but Him; He spoke and the worlds were formed, He is sovereign over all. He formed light and created darkness, He makes peace and creates calamity; therefore we should fear Him! He gives life and He takes it away, He raises up kings and humbles them (Daniel 2:20- 22). Great is His name!

Heaven and earth rejoice at the sound of His voice, the mountains tremble at His power (Nahum 1:5). We who have been born again should live a life of exalting His name on the earth, declaring with boldness His great power. Like the Apostle Peter said, “you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light! (1 Peter 2:9)” So if God has saved you, proclaim His praises; do not be ashamed! One day every knee will bow at the name of Jesus, and every tongue will confess that He is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:10, 11)! Therefore choose to bow today without shame, for He is God and there is no other!

Perspective

Perspective

2 Corinthians 4:18

“While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things that are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

Things dramatically change when your perspective is different. Here is an example: someone offers you $100 million cash, the Mona Lisa painting, or a gallon of water; of course you would pick the money or the painting, valued at $780 million today. But, if you were in the middle of the Sahara desert, hundreds of miles from anything and thirsting to death, you would chose the life giving water. The other items would be worthless to you due to your circumstance.

As we look at the world around us, we see many lights, bells and whistles, temptations of every kind calling out our names. Most of the world is running after such things, building bank accounts, building dream homes and stacking up toys galore, believing that life is in the abundance of the things they possess (Luke 12:22, 23, 30). They are ignorant of the life of God, and therefore run after the only hope they see. It is all vanity, a chasing after the wind (Ecclesiastes 4:4).

We need a whole new perspective: a heavenly perspective. If all we have is this world, then let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. But when the light of God shines in our hearts, and He gives us new eyes to see, giving us an eternal perspective, then everything changes. The pleasures of this world become dim in comparison, no longer are you chasing worldly pursuits which fade away, but now you live for the will of God (1 John 2:15- 17).

Once you see that this life is like a vapor, and all its glory is like a flower that fades away, then your life’s agenda changes. As Paul said, we do not look at what is seen but what is unseen, for the seen is temporary, but the unseen is eternal. Dear reader, is this you? Has the light from heaven given you a new look on life, or do you still live for this world?

I encourage you today, while you have breath in your lungs: pursue heaven! Use your short life for the thing that counts. Use this worlds goods for the glory of God, holding possessions with a loose hand, for they will soon decay anyway. Provide yourselves a heavenly treasure that will never fade away. Do you see it? Do you see the unseen?
