Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

John 18:37-38

American Standard Version (ASV)

37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end have I been born, and to this end am I come into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find no crime in him.

It’s very late here, and I really need to go to bed. But I just can’t sleep before I post this because, just before I was going to head off to bed, I noticed that the last few posts Utah and I put up are all interconnected. They support and build off each other. This was not planned: we did this simultaneously and without coordinating our efforts.

I have come to understand that there is no such thing as a coincidence in life: if it happens, it happens for a reason. What’s more, it may just be me, but I’ve been seeing a lot more of this sort of thing happening than I’ve ever noticed before in my life – and I tend to be naturally attuned to this sort of stuff, so I would have noticed had it been there. But I don’t think it’s just me because many of my friends have been volunteering their own comments and observations regarding this same thing. The only thing I can find to describe it is that there is some sort of spiritual convergence taking place. Personally, I happen to believe it’s because those of us who are in and of the truth are hearing His voice, and He is telling us that this is the season.

But, no matter what I’m sensing, one thing is for certain: our society is about to be tested. So I thought I would share a picture that – for me – ties many of the our recent posts together and offer a few thoughts on what we should all take away from it:

First, ethics do not equal morality. Morality is a universal constant authored by the Creator: it is the same for all people, everywhere and for all time. Ethics are man-made and – quite often – they stand in direct opposition to the Creator’s moral law. Finally, you must obey one or the other, and how you chose will decide your ultimate fate. So chose: will you serve God, or will you serve man? As for me?

Joshua 24:15

American Standard Version (ASV)

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve Jehovah, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah.

  2. “but as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah.”

    That makes a lot more sense. After those 6,125 new regulations, I don’t think I could follow the Amorites rules if I tried.

    • Justin,

      Birth pains refers to something Christ told us about how we can know the season of His return. He said that there would not only be wars and rumors of wars, and men would make the truth into falsehoods and falsehoods into the truth, but that there would be more natural disasters as well, such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes. He also said these things would not necessarily be worst than in the past, but that they would start coming faster and faster, closer together — like birth pains.

      • Good to know.

        Rumors of wars: rumors? Check.
        Men make truth into falsehoods: Are you kidding me? Check.
        Natural disasters: Check.

        Just pray for me that the birth canal is not Yellowstone, okay?

        • Justin,

          LOL, no, you’re safe. EVERYTHING in the Bible is centered around Jerusalem, so I don’t think we’re in any danger in this respect — other than the danger that the world faces in general.

  3. Ummm- no. Ethics is the philosophy of morality. Morals are nothing more then one of the tenets of ethics, defined by the particualr religious or social construct used.

    Worldwide- christianity comprises roughly one third of the population. And that is in itself splintered into countless supgroups with different “morals” based on their particular brand of belief.

    So no. Morality does not gome from “God”. For some it does- whether it’s Jesus, Yahweh, Buddha, Allah, Lucifer, Gaia, or any of other numerous gods. For many it is based on something cobbled together from two or more of those. And for many others- the 14%+ who are non-religious, it may have nothing to do with any of them.

    • drugsandotherthings — put the crack pipe down man. It’s not legal, yet. And you don’t want to end up like John McAfee.

      And what the hell is a “gome” please?

  4. but as for me and my house we will serve Jehovah.
    That is not my threat but my promise to god. I think that I need to verbally communicate this because I too am convinced that Christ is on his way……soon
