With the tragedy in Texas, our hearts are broken at the senseless violence. And our prayers go out to all of the families and faculty and law enforcement and first responders. What a horrible and sad sad thing! And it's even more obvious that there is only one hope.
Global leaders want global control of all people, and will, of course, call for more control, as their "hope". But the only real hope comes from knowing the truth, and the truth starts with a loving God who Himself came to save us!
With leaders calling for rage, and with deception all around us, calling for surgeries for confused children and selling it as progress, with medical issues turned into political issues, with the lack of truth being reported due to global agendas, with global problems suddenly arising all around, it is no wonder we also have a global mental health crisis. But the solution remains the same – come to the living loving Lord Jesus and live and love others, or remain in the sin which entangles and twists the intended life into confusion and mistakes and ultimately death in all areas of life.
We have the answer to every “cancer”, and His name is Jesus. The cross confirms His love for all people, as is, and His resurrection after death confirms His power. And His written Word, the Bible, confirms the world would unfold, just as it is unfolding. Let me repeat that most important phrase – His love for ALL people, AS IS. He loves you as you are – troubled, sinning (all have sinned), and without hope. And He says He leaves the 99 to come to save you, and to give you an unending hope. If you call to Him, He will answer.
Call to Him. Ask the hard questions and find the unending hope – Is there hope? Is there a God? Who is this God? How do we know for sure? Did Jesus come back to life after being dead? Why is there such a push against talking about Jesus? Why is the truth so hidden and so smeared? Why is Isaiah chapter 53 the forbidden chapter in many synagogues for the chosen people of Israel? Why don’t many global leaders want you to find Jesus? How does Jesus equal freedom and life to the full? Is the Bible really the written Word of God? Is it really the most historically validated book? Does it really have hundreds of things written in advance that came true – proving its authenticity in yet another way?
Read the book of John in the Bible, and start to find and spread hope and love. It begins with these 18 powerful sentences:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.
14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
Call to Jesus and He will answer. And He is the answer, to every "cancer".
