Don’t worry – it’ll get worse!

Don’t worry – it’ll get worse!

I know, you’re like, “huh, what?” I thought you were going to encourage me, not tell me things are going to get worse!

Stay with me, here.

Yes, things will get worse – but also better!

When it comes to our society, it’s a hope that lies within me that things will be getting better. There is a small spark of hope that the next election will bring with it a president who will support and openly and publicly proclaim truth, godly values and real freedom.

There’s a glimmer in my eye that God’s people will finally get off their fluffy couches and duffs, and actually be vocally, publicly loud about morality and values.

But….. unfortunately, I really don’t think either of those are going to happen.

“So, what then?” you may ask. As someone who has been used for years in God’s ministry, helped many souls get on or stay on the right path – someone who’s been healed, anointed to preach, teach and minister – I can safely say… “I dunno!” \o/

But don’t get discouraged. That’s where God comes in. (Hint: that’s where He usually likes to make His entrance.) While we see things bleak, and full of plight, God in His infinite knowledge sees the ending from the beginning. He knows that in the end – we as God’s people will actually win. But before we do – the battle must be waged. Lives lost, sacrifices made, and casualties climb in numbers.

But don’t worry – it’ll get worse. But the caveat is this – as it gets worse, for us, God’s people it will actually get BETTER! Closer to heaven! Closer to home! Closer to complete victory over death, hell and the grave!

As David said, “Let God arise, and His enemies be scattered!”

Did you know that The Trek, being an Apostolic church and a Delaware church, realizes that being Apostolic does not necessarily mean you have to be, well, “mean?”

We at The Trek think that down to earth is the way to go. We don’t compromise the truth of the Apostolic message but we do use a toned down methodology that doesn’t force bursts of air coming from an always-fiery yelling stomping preacher.

It’s interesting to note, that the only time Jesus really “yelled” is at religious leaders. Hmnm, something to think about.

There’s only One God

There’s only One God

 

All throughout the bible, it’s very, very clear… “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is ONE Lord…” (Duet. 6:4)

Unfortunately, many have inserted their own unfounded theology into scriptures, this in particular. I’ve heard preachers and saints alike say that this word “one” means “one in closeness” or “one in purpose” or one like a husband and wife are “one.”

As tremendously close as my wife and I are to each other, as my wife says, you simply cannot look at her and say “I see your husband” or vice versa. We just don’t “look alike”, regardless of similar thoughts, visions, goals, etc.

That word “one” absolutely and positively does not mean one in purpose – its the simplest form of the word – meaning it’s a numerical number – ONE! (Duh!)

A common misinterpretation is that it does not mean one as in number one. This is twisting theology with absolute biblical truth.

As a quick, brief and small example, it’s fundamental and basic to correlate scripture with scripture in any interpretation methodology.

Deuteronomy 6:4 says “the Lord our God is ONE Lord…”

In concurrent biblical phraseology, the following even a child could read and understand…

“Before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no savior.” (Isaiah 43:10,11)

“I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.” (Isaiah 44:6)

“Is there a God beside me? yea, there is not God, I know not any.” (Isaiah 44:8)

“There is non beside me. I am the LORD and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:6)

And so on – and so on. Too many to name here. Use your brain, God does not require a historian, nor a cemetery, er uh, seminary student to delve into infrastructure development to read and understand – THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. And His name is Jesus. 🙂
