Ephesians 2

It’s a chapter to be read with keen awareness and devoted appreciation. 
Oh, how I would love to read it aloud to you with all the passion and thankfulness that washes over me. 

I paraphrased the first two verses. 
Would you like to see them?
Good.

Ephesians 1: 1 I used to be dead because of my sins and acts of disobedience. 2  I walked in the ways of the world and obeyed the Ruler of the Powers of the Air, who is still at work among the disobedient.  original source 

The chapter goes on to say we all used to live this way; this natural, old nature with which we were born BUT GOD in His mercy and grace came and offered us more than just this natural sin-cursed life. He offered us through The Messiah Yeshua deliverance from sin, death, hell, and the grave. 

Not many in comparison have said yes. 
Have you? 

It’s been a quiet Sunday here at our lovely abode; these PJs sure are comfy.

Ephesians 2

Just Can’t Shake It.

I saw a Facebook post a number of days ago that I have yet to shake.
It screamed at me reminding me sharply not only of the lostness of people but the utter darkness of mind that compels, even hurls them into puffed-up confidence that they are truly enlightened.

What’s the jest of the post?
Casual sex.
Partner after partner with no remorse.
No stigma, no judgment allowed.
Generations of people are enslaved, without repentance, and are bound for eternal hell. 
People who are deluding themselves, refusing to know they are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. Revelation 3:17

Naked without The Righteousness of The Christ and because of utter depravity are facing the WRATH of GOD.
Yes, people, GOD is love but His love demands His wrath on the unrepentant.
Don’t like that?
Don’t believe that?
That is to your detriment and GOD will so allow if you insist.

As I said, I have yet to shake it.
How can we get them to listen?
How can we rescue people who do not want to be rescued?
How can we get them to turn off the road to hell when they refuse to believe hell is, or even sin is?
How can we get them to see GOD HATES SIN and no sinner ever enters His Heaven?
How do we get them to hear?

I don’t know.
But I do know I want them to hear.
I want them delivered from deception, from sin, death, and hell.

Perhaps this post is just a feeble attempt to get someone, anyone, to listen — but I just couldn’t shake it — I had to write it.
