A Faithless And Perverse Generation
Are we or are we not living in a faithless and perverse generation? What sayest thou? Where does this phrase comes from?
Is it any surprise if I say it came straight out of the heart of a person who became the greatest man ever lived and walked on this planet Earth? This man needs no introduction. That’s simply because he was such a man of mighty words and works that, had the world acknowledged his magnificent passion for humanity, it would be a perfect world. Have you? Although living just as an ordinary man, but when he started speaking, there were no-holds-barred. People would be astonished and marveled at him because he never held back any truths. It was not uncommon that people asked the same everywhere he went, “From whence hath this man these things? And what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses and of Juda, and Simon”? (Mark 6:2-3).
When he started healing, even unclean spirits recognized him and ran helter-skelter saying, “Let us alone; what have we to do with thee? Art thou come to destroy us? I know thee thou art, the Holy One of God.” (Mark 1:24). When he rebuked the hypocrisy of the Pharisees Jews, his wisdom was beyond reproach so much so that, “And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions” (Matthew 22:46).
There was never a prima-facie case to prosecute against him because no one had ever found any fault in him even until the day his own disciple betrayed him. They took him away without spelling out any charges, and he was ruthlessly scourged, labeled as a criminal for committing no crimes and finally crucified without mercy by his own people. He was so perfect that not even a prominent governor of the day could start a lawful trial on him saying, “Why, what evil hath he done”? (Matthew 27:23). This man was the only “human being” ever lived on earth who had the divine power to defy death by being resurrected. Who else can?
Now, who do you say this man was? Is he still living? Are ye having eyes, see ye not? And are ye having ears, hear ye not? Do ye not remember? If you don’t, that means only one thing. It’s a sign that you are now living in a faithless and perverse generation. “Why are ye so fearful?” “How is it that ye have no faith?” These are the words spoken by a fearless man more than two thousand years ago. And his words still have the reign of power until today because his words can change your life forever…if you BELIEVE! Do you?
O Ye Of Little Faith?
You probably don’t, right? Can’t blame you because in this faithless and perverse generation, people are only interested to see proofs. But then again, this still might not work even when you see them, because the evil forces still have power over humankind than the other way around. People have evidently been “blinded” because they know not him that God sent. That’s why, the Holy One always said, “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?” So there’s a big question mark hanging over your head…to believe or not to believe this incredible man who rattled the world with his love and compassion and his holy sacrifice on the cross that ultimately is the only hope to save humanity. If you can try to figure what difference the world would make without him compared to the world in having him, you will understand better why, having the Love of Jesus in everyone, is such an important criteria to change the world that you may have problem sleeping every night for not believing it so. Do you ‘see’ what I’m talking?
He Showed Undying Passion For Humanity: Can You?
“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye-for-an-eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:38-48)
Do you likewise have the same passion like the disciples to follow and practice exactly what Jesus taught above? What you see happening in this world today is exactly the opposite of what he taught the multitudes that followed him. Why? The answer is simple. As long as you do not have the same Passion and the Love of Jesus in you, you are much the same as living in a faithless and perverse generation.
He Showed No One Fear Or Favor: Can You?
1. Not even to the Devil:
“And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward a hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:2-4)
2. Not even to the High Priests:
“Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? And if I by Beelzebub cast out the devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast the devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.” (Matthew 12: 22-28)
3. Not even to his Apostle:
“From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. The Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” (Matthew 16: 21-25)
4. Let alone you or me?
So, what’s the final verdict? He had made it plain, simple and easy to understand. Anyone who does not take seriously the second chance of redemption, the person concerned had better not die for a long time to come because if the person dies, the taste of death would be something quite unimaginable. “Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.”
He Showed The Greatest Example: Can You?
“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep”
If we look at ourselves and the way things are happening around us everyday, do you not see the similarity that is still rearing its ugly head today? There were so much of radicalism the Holy One had to deal with that eventually it led to his death on the cross. “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias (Isaiah) the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:17). All the radicalism existing today are exactly what’s contradicting the teachings of the Holy One as it seemed God’s will to love becomes hate and God’s will to save becomes kill.
There is nothing wrong being an extremist. It is only wrong when it is badly misguided and blinded by the Devil. To be an extremist is not about going on a revenge and kill to bring about justice. Whether justice served for humanity or for God, it’s all so irrational. If it’s justice served for people by revenge, then what’s the point of having lawyers and courts? If it’s justice served in God’s name by killing, then what’s the point of believing in God and the Judgment Day? So how can all such despicable acts be construed as fulfilling the will of God or bringing about any justice at all? God had shown us himself as an example of what an “extremist” is and as what we should have been like, if one really wants to become an extremist (Refer to Extremist vs Moderation). It is about giving of one’s live to save others. It’s never about killing whether it’s right or wrong. Likewise, how can killing those who kill can save those who were killed? Are we God?
In case you still keep wondering if the worst of what’s coming is happening now. My advice is, you had better wake up. You had better come to a compromise that you are actually standing face to face with all these dark realities that you would find it hard to swallow. And yet still have to swallow somehow…like it or not! You would be better off knowing that you have been trapped inside the world of a faithless and perverse generation than to pretend you are not. You had better accept the gospel truth that you are in the shadow of a nightmare you want to get out of and there’s no way out. So how? Cry it all out like a child? Hope for a miracle to happen? Who can and would come to your rescue? Who would have thought anyone would end up in such a predicament and needed rescue too? Everyone is born this way and trapped. Is that not what everyone thought? Is there no solution? Is there no answer? Is there no hope?
Yes, in fact, there will be no solution, no answer and no hope if it’s not for this man, Jesus of Nazareth who, even the unclean spirits ‘see’ as the Holy One, who came to our rescue. There was an incident where a man’s son went amok and even the disciples of the Holy One couldn’t subdue him. So this man came in a panic begging the Holy One for help. In Matthew 17: 17-18: “Then the Holy One answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither. And the Holy One rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and child was cured from that very hour” Was that not a sign that the kingdom had come?
Every evidence or signs were there for people to ‘see’ and to believe even as he was manifesting it. He is the answer, the solution, the only hope of salvation for humanity. Yet people today are still so blind and not able to ‘see’ it. He is not in person today to show us how he miraculously saved people. There are no more signs and miracles that could be wrought. That is no longer a necessary or important criteria because the Word of God – the Bible is already the greatest testimony for people to believe and be saved.
“He is not here: he is risen.” Does that mean you can stop believing? Little did you know. He’s now living in the hearts of modern men and women who addressed each other as brothers and sisters because they believed the most wonderful ‘miracle’ ever in the history of civilization had already happened and it keeps happening. Your salvation that culminated from your faith in accepting Jesus would be endorsed by the Holy One with only a simple acknowledgement. And that is…repent, confess your sins and be baptized in his name. Then, by the virtue of your FAITH, you will ‘see’ an enormous transformation of yourself from the darkness of evil into the light. The brothers and sisters who have found such a new lease of life through him are ‘seeing’ the world differently. They are also endlessly and faithfully changing the world because they have developed a passion in their hearts called, “The Love of Jesus.” That’s the ‘miracle’ and it only happens to anyone who believe in having the Love of Jesus in them! That’s the only ‘miracle’ that will transform the world to become a perfect world. Nothing else on earth will. Are you ready for the ‘miracle?’
Do You Have The Love of Jesus?
You don’t? Then we have a problem and so is the world. That is why the world is in chaos for failing to ‘see’ the power of the Holy One’s sermon to the multitudes. All chaos are so sadly seen by many as a “norm” on the outside as if it’s the case of everybody is born this way. But little did they know. Chaos actually only start brewing from the inside. And it’s only quickly exploding on the outside because people do not have the ‘spiritual strength’ to control such evil from spilling out. People can’t ‘see’ that it is all about a “spiritual problem” that will be here to stay as long as the Love of Jesus is not found inside them. People will easily become lost in a faithless and perverse generation without the spiritual guidance and protection of the Holy Spirit of Christ. There’s no way that we humans can fight the evils that are within us without the help of another powerful ‘spiritual entity’ that so many people failed to embrace. And that’s the Love of Jesus! So people are actually living in “darkness” everyday with the way they conduct themselves whether it’s kill or be killed, an eye-for-an eye, or a tooth for a tooth etc. And they don’t even know what’s causing such kind of havoc in the first place, let alone know why.
People always preferred to have this bad habit of ignoring the seriousness of their problems and suffered the consequences of it which is not a good sign. Is it all because of pride? Is having pride so important? Is pride worth dying for? Or, is it because of the faithless and perverse generation we’re living now in the present time that had blinded us to ‘see’ a miracle that is waiting to happen? So, is there no answer, no solution and no hope?
Now, what am I driving at? Haven’t I made my point? Yes I did, but I’m only working on making make sure everyone really got the point. It’s a plain and simple one. When there’s answer, hope and solution to the worse nightmare of humanity which is Sin, the Devil and Death, people still play ignorant and dead to it. That’s the biggest issue here for crying out loud. That’s why this remark, “O ye faithless and perverse generation” came into the picture. Did you not know it was the same person who said it, yet was the only one who is the answer, hope and solution to the curse? Is Sin, the Devil and Death not a problem? Don’t you need an answer, a hope and a solution in such a faithless and perverse generation?
Even the disciples of the Holy One needed answer. After the Holy One cast out the devil from the man’s lunatic son who went berserk, his disciples were in anguish and needed to know why they failed to cure the man’s lunatic son. They came after the Holy One asking this question, “Why could not we cast him out? And the Holy One said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of a mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”
This episode of a faithless and perverse generation has been around for centuries. It is no different now. It looks like nothing, but instead, a sore-thumb sticking out everywhere. That’s why, the Holy One did not utter about this faithless and perverse generation for no reason. It’s not for keeping everyone amused or entertained and then back to business as usual and forget about it. It’s real. It is a curse. No one shall be exempted from this curse. Everyone has to do something about it like it or not. It’s a matter of life and death, not just here on earth but after this… takes effect as well. It’s being recorded in a sacred book that holds the key to eternal life to all those who believe. Whether or not it’s sacred to you now lies with the question, who you think and believe is your answer, hope and solution to your worse nightmare living in a faithless and perverse generation. The reason you are still trapped is because you are a victim of the blind leading the blind. Even those teachers of religious laws who were the Pharisee Jews and scribes during the time of the Holy One were ignorantly caught in this trap, let alone you who are much less of a religious fanatics.
The Blind Leading The Blind.
Heard of this before? Do you know who said this? Can you understand what that means?
Without a doubt, most people would have no problem knowing where this unimpeachable quote comes from. However, if you don’t know, then don’t be surprised that it’s still an eye-opener to you and to this day and time. At the height of his ministry in fulfilling God’s will on earth, the Holy One was having a tough time all the time dealing with his “adversaries” and they were the Pharisees and scribes…the so-called religious teachers at that time. When the Holy One was trying to teach about the kingdom of God that is to come and to save themselves, those self-righteous priests were more concerned about observing laws instead. So they always tried to find fault with the Holy One by testing him with their Pharisaic laws passed down to them from the elders. It started when they questioned the Holy One why his disciples failed to wash their hands before they eat bread which to them was committing transgression against their tradition. But little did they know. The kingdom of God is not about how good one is in observing the laws or rituals that the laws required. It is about how far one’s Faith in God goes, as much as, how long one’s Faith in God will last that please God and His graciousness.
In Matthew 15:1-20 is the account of the war of words between the Holy One and his “adversaries” whom the Holy One declared as hypocrites. The Holy One answered back and asked why they defiled the tradition for not honoring their father and mother just because they believed they were doing their father and mother a favor; that it’s a gift for their parents for giving birth to them. And it’s free of them to choose whether they want to honor their father and mother for that matter. And that itself was already transgressing against their tradition.
If you do not have a Bible in hand, here’s the full account of the dialogue that transpired at that point. I’m using the King James Version which some may find the old language a bit difficult to grasp especially the meaning because of the way it’s being presented. It would be easier to use the New International Version Bible that would help you to understand clearly and better.
“Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying, Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or his mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias (Isaiah) prophesy of you saying, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man. Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying? But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable. And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.”
The reason for quoting this famous line spoken by a simple down-to-earth human being is not something so unimaginable and neither is it forthcoming that it is so incomprehensible to anyone. Everything that is happening everyday right before our eyes even to this day, had actually been seen through the eyes of ‘a prophet’ some two thousand years ago.
This is not something new. Yet it is still the only good news that is forever available for all human beings on planet Earth. This story of a man from Galilee that is now being told all over the world is still simply the greatest story ever told in the history of civilization. No one on earth can ever stop this story from being told over and over again…even in the midst of whatever dangerous circumstances. Not then! Not now! Not ever! Because this is a story about a real human being who was born meek and who also like anyone of us, could feel pain when inflicted. Yet he was the greatest example of what a real human being is and supposed to be. He was a man so fearless in facing pain and death that no one since Man whom God created, had ever the divine power to conquer…Sin, the Devil and Death which are the curse of humanity. Was he or was he not God? You will not know, understand or believe until you become a Christian. Will you?
This person implicated here has so much passion for humanity that what he did had not only changed my destiny. He is still changing the destiny of anyone who would be touched by his love and compassion. Is he changing yours? He was someone who existed in flesh and blood even before our forefathers’ fathers were around smelling the foul sweat of their own fears with death for not knowing where their destiny would bring them. And it’s all because they failed to wake up to the simple truth that they unknowingly became the unfortunate victims of the blind leading the blind. And eventually all have fallen into the ditch of darkness where it’s the point of no return. Would you be seeing yourself ending up this way too? Isn’t it a pity that everyone knows there’s this greatest privilege of walking in the light that is shining on the right path to God, that was handed over to us by this man from Galilee, yet people still found themselves falling into obscurity instead? Who is to blame? Your forefathers’ fathers?
Even until today, the same thing keeps happening again and again. Will it ever end? Guess you can say that again…and that is if ever you would be reincarnated again. Do you believe you’ll be reincarnated anyway? To go through all the sufferings again…sin, death and the Devil? People are still ignorantly walking into obscurity before and now as in the blind leading the blind. Why? Is it not because the love of Jesus is not found in them? Is the answer not obvious enough? Is it not right before our “bright” eyes? Why then, many have eyes yet not see? So is it any wonder what Jesus said then is consistently showing the same results with the present times? In fact, it is! And that’s also why Paul the apostle wrote to the Hebrews Christians reminding them that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever.
Who’s The Blind?
Can a person who have eyes to see, yet still be blind? That’s a good question. Generally, everyone knows those who are blind are the unfortunate ones who are born without visual. Right? Or there are cases of people gone blind later in their life because of accidents or other circumstances that may stem from health diseases like diabetes. Right? So there are people born blind literally and can’t see all their lives. While however, there are those born without a normal eye-sight and can see everything crystal clear. Right?
Wrong! On the contrary, there are many people who “supposedly” can see, can turn out as blind as those who can’t see. And do not be surprised that those who are born physically blind “supposedly” can’t see, may turn out as the ones able to ‘see’ with better eyes than those who are physically blessed with sight to see. Why is that? It’s simple. If one still can’t ‘see’ the reason why by now, then there’s a big problem here from now till eternity that couldn’t be solved. That person will need a direct “miracle” from God to heal the sight and that is impossible, frankly. How to heal a person sight when the person is not blind in the first place? Anyway, the days of healing the blinds are gone and so are raising the dead. Now there’s a different version. It’s called, we walk by FAITH and not by sight! It is only made possible by studying the Word of God. That is why, those who walk by “sight” will tell you that God is not here today. And those who walk by FAITH will tell you they’re experiencing the presence of God in their lives everyday!
What does it mean? How to walk by FAITH? By giving a simple illustration hopefully it will bring home the message loud and clear. The best example would be a blind person using a pedestrian crossing. It is so incredible that a blind person who by nature can’t see what is green, red or amber can figure out when would it turn green to cross the road. It is as if “an angel” is taking them by their hands to move them. It is even more “incredible” that a normal person blessed with sight by nature and can see crystal clear what is green, red or amber, yet cannot figure out which color means stop and hit on the brakes. It is as if an “evil force” is forcing them to hit on the accelerator to run the red lights instead. So who is the blind here? Is it the blind person or the person with 2 bright eyes or perhaps even 4? So why do people have perfect eyes yet not see perfectly? Is it not because they have been perfectly blinded by the Devil? Is it not the perfect case of the blind leading the blind? Perfectly as simple as that is, is it not because the love of Jesus is not found in them? Only you will know, understand and believe…when you become a Christian. Will you?
The Parable of A Sower
If you study the ministry of Jesus, you will discover that he always liked to teach by telling parables to the multitude of people who followed him. There is this particular parable that I would like to highlight here. It would quickly decide what class a person will fall into. There are altogether only 4 categories. It’s very likely you or anyone will fall into one of these categories. Each group is identified with an event that is taking place. Then of course, you come into the picture. You will decide for yourself which group is the closest event that describes you as such. Once you know which group represents your true character, you would be able to tell where you stand. It is your sole responsibility to decide where your destiny would bring you. So it’s up to you to make any changes necessary that would be in line with the spiritual calling to breathe the Love of Jesus into your life. Of course, any inaction or ignorance is something that is only between you and the Almighty to sort out with. This parable will serve as a perfect opportunity that will open your eyes to see for yourself whether the Love of Jesus is found in you…if indeed at all.
Category 1: Some Fell By The Way Side.
Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.
The Meaning: And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
Category 2: Some Fell On Stony Ground.
And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang, because it had no depth of earth. But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
The Meaning: And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, immediately receive it with gladness; and have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.
Category 3: Some Fell Among Thorns.
And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
The Meaning: And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.
Category 4: Other Fell On Good Ground.
And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
The Meaning: And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty and some an hundred.
So, which group do you think you fall under? If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. The word is the kingdom of God. Jesus is the one who sow, and who is sowing the seed of love. When you received the word, how far your faith it will go and how long it will last shall depend on which group you are in. Whether you are in for a rude shock or not is only for you and you alone to find out. Nobody knows. But God only knows. This is not a test. It shall decide your destiny from this day onwards.
Is it or is it not possible to live not so honestly and truthfully in our hearts and conscience as in moderation and still be a human being? If you asked me, I’d say maybe yes and maybe no. Why? It depends. If metaphorically speaking, it’s yes. It is possible because people can still “live” without having a heart and a conscience and they are plenty of such kind roaming around the earth even now. Only they can’t tell anymore if they’re real or fake human beings themselves. And if consciously speaking, it’s no. Because it depends whether a person would “like” to have a heart and a conscience or “not like” to. So, isn’t it a matter of personal preference like in choosing a partner in life, business or politics. Some may like their partners moderately honest and not to become somewhat extremely truthful, as this may bring about confrontation in the end that could lead to something not moderately ugly like perhaps public swearing and such nonsense that would do more harm than good.
Little did you know. Swearing is an abomination according to Jesus as he warned in Matthew 5: 33-37. “Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thous shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne: Nor by earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.”
Life is not just about learning the balancing act on a tight-rope. It is also about preparing ourselves for any eventuality that may happen any seconds especially death when one can so easily fall off the tight-rope. That’s why people are buying life insurance but that’s not something that can really save a person. Insurance can only cover for what’s in this world but not the world hereafter. Can it? Have you then got yourself “spiritually” covered? It’s sort of “immortality insurance” that money can’t buy but it’s FREE! Whatever its worth and value, it cannot be calculated or measured because it cost the life of a person to make this most precious gift possible for everyone on earth. And it is the gift of eternal life. Everyone is walking precariously on a tight-rope in this life. The chances of falling off is not moderately low. It’s extremely high. It’s a matter of time anyone will fall. It’s a fall that will happen to everybody regardless of who the person is. The only question is, when. But if you’ve got yourself “spiritually” covered, you know then you’ll be saved even when you fall. The person who provided you with the “spiritual cover” will be there to catch you from falling into the pitch of eternal darkness and sufferings. So you had better run and get yourself this “eternal coverage” because you never know when the fall will take place. Can you afford to fall and regret hereafter? You had better not take the risk because there’s such an awful thing known as, “it’s too late”!
