We Only Have Now


Life is fleeting even if we live to be a hundred years old. Job knew of just how fast life passes us by. What is the purpose of man who’s time is as a vapour never to be seen again of family and friends who love them? “My days are swifter than a weavers shuttle, and are spent without hope. O remember that my life wind: mine eye shall no more see good. The eye of him that hath seen me shall see me no more: thine eyes are upon me, and I am not. As the cloud is consumed and vanisheth away: so he that goeth down to the grave shall come up no more. He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him any more”. (Job 7:6-10).

 

The purpose we read of in scripture is to live a life that reflects the love Christ brought to the earth and this time we spend upon earth gives our soul purpose and meaning! We claim our life as a thing we control, yet many make plans that they will do this or that and not include God’s will in their actions. “Go to now, ye that say, Today or to-morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that”.(James 4:13-15).

 

We are not promised tomorrow and the breath we have within us this very moment may be removed by sunset.. How many people have this thought only after a doctor will say you have so much time to live and you should get your affairs in order that a flood of things that seemed not too important is at the top of a list of things to do immediately. Does the teenager on the way to a party and crashes to their death think of how short life is? Does a child of five with cancer know the length of life that could have been? Do we go through our day telling people we love them or live as though we have forever to let them know? Even a thousand years to God are as no time at all in his place of eternity. “For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom”.(Psalm 90:4,9,12). Attend to what is most important in life  If not now then when?

  2. IT IS ONLY TOO BAD, THAT WE HAVE TO SURROUND OUR HEART BEATS WITH THE EVIL AND CORRUPTION OF WORLD GOVERNMENTS, AND PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THOSE ACTS. LIFE IS SHORT AND SHORTER FOR SOME, BUT WHO WANTS TO LIVE LONG LIFE BEING SURROUNDED BY BEINGS WHO WANT NOTHING BUT HARM. IT IS GOOD THAT BIBLE PROPHECY IS BEING FULFILLED AND JESUS CHRIST IS ON HIS WAY.
