Apr.22nd “Messages Not Heard”
“Clock Tower Cottage By Thomas Kinkade”
"A few weeks back I mentioned Thomas Kinkade. His brother came out after his death and said that separation from his wife and four children had taken a toil, loss of sales, and other allegations had led to an increase and dependence on the artist’s alcoholism. Others mentioned he felt like he had sold his talent for commercialism and money. The article finished by saying, “He’ll likely become an example of a talented man making the wrong choices.”
I couldn’t help but think of how often I’ve spoken out on this to especially warn people of this danger, a danger I know only too well. But here it is in the way that God speaks about it and its consequences. Twice in Proverbs, 14:12 and 16:25, we are told, “There is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Here’s what “The Berean Call” says about that, “In other words, if a man goes by what he thinks or feels, independently of and in opposition to what God has declared, the consequences for him (or her) will only generate destruction. “If they speak not according to the word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
You go contrary to scripture, you show your children how to live wrongly, you pervert what God has said in His Word and you will suffer the consequences.
I don’t write this as a guilt trip! I write this as a wake-up call! I write this because God is not mocked and His Word is truth and if you speak and act as if there is no light in you “Death is separation, the spirit and the soul from the body and moreover the separation from God and the light of His truth.” (The Berean Call)
“Too often we don’t see what’s before our eyes
Too often the messages we believe are only lies
We frequently have time to beg and ask forgiveness
We so need a heart cleansed and full of Willingness
It’s not too late; don’t take that road you travel far
Your life, what you think you have, will only be a mar!”
“Painters need to give themselves to their gift and they need the right, positive, supportive people around them, not those who would put selfishness, prominence, and money first. Have a great week!!”
