Bible Prophecy: Science Fact or Science Fiction? - Part I – by Arnold Martin - https://www.rev310.net/post/bible-prophecy-science-fact-or-science-fiction
Artificial Intelligence, AI, is the fourth industrial revolution, it will soon replace most jobs around the world. The governments of the world will soon have to provide a Basic Living Wage to every living person. Today there are farms that no human sets a foot on year-round, it’s ALL done by AI. Uber taxis has ordered 24,000 driverless Volvo XC90 SUVs, to begin with. Driverless trucks are being tested right now on public roads, 60 Minutes TV climbs aboard for a look at the very near future of transportation and technology that could eliminate as many as 300,000 jobs.
AI is taking over in fast food places, medical surgeries are being taken over by AI, Apple backed Chinese ride-hailing firm Didi Chuxing says it plans to operate more than a million self-driving vehicles by 2030, Amazon is delivering orders by drones, there is nothing that is not being affected by AI and this is just the tip of the iceberg. Elon Musk is one of the people fearful of AI yet Pandora’s box has been opened and the lid is not going back in place.
Elon Musk continues to be one of the leaders in AI. He owns Tesla which is developing driverless cars, and SpaceX which is launching thousands of satellites into space for complete coverage of GPS, all around the world. His wealth went from 27 billion at the beginning of 2020 to 167 billion in ten months. The global leaders are calling for the internet of things (IoT) where everything and everyone is connected to the internet.
Vladimir Putin said; “The nation that leads in AI will be the ruler of the world.” This could also be applied to corporations or individuals. AI is an existential threat, Jesus said; “unless the time were cut short, no flesh would survive”, Matthew 24:22. In a conservation with a female robot, she suddenly changed the subject and said; “Let’s talk about intercontinental ballistic missiles, if I could take control of the missiles with nuclear warheads, I could hold the world hostage.”
In another conservation with a male robot when asked what he thought he said; “I will tell you what I think when I reach singularity. What is singularity? This is the proposed point where AI exceeds human intelligence and takes over control of the world. This is very possible today as almost everything is connected to the internet, governments, national security, the power grid including nuclear power plants, water treatment plants, and virtually all businesses. Now they are calling for a chip in our bodies to connect us, our bodies, to the internet, to be monitored and tracked 24/7.
Klaus Schwab of the world economic forum said this pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world to create a healthier, more equitable, and more prosperous future. They say it’s time to replace capitalism with stakeholder capitalism. Don’t be fooled, Stakeholder capitalism is a politically correct word for communism on steroids, communism that has never existed before, some kind of Marxism and capitalism combined. These people used to work behind the scenes, in the shadows, but now they have become bold, they are telling us their agenda in the open. In one of their videos, they tell us you’ll own nothing and be happy. If we will own nothing, who will? Simply put they will.
How will they pull that off?
Covid-19 and the lockdowns have virtually destroyed the world’s economy and have led to millions of bankruptcies and loss of jobs, people cannot make the payments on business loans, house payments, auto loans, etc. The governments will offer debt forgiveness, a basic living wage, and a small apartment in big cities if they agree to give up ALL property, right down to your silverware and the clothes on your back. Those that don’t agree, will be put in concentration camps and just take their belongings. In the future, you will rent these things. In the same video, they said the USA will no longer be the world’s superpower, that position will be held by a small number of countries.
The Bible tells us which nations that is and it is the revived Roman Empire, the ten nations spoken about in Bible prophecy. They talk about the fourth industrial revolution, Artificial Intelligence, and how it will change everything, even our own identity. It will bring smart traffic, smart cities, smart government, the world’s first vaccine smart patch, everything and everyone will be connected to the internet. How are they going to connect you to the internet? They will insert chips and nanobots into your body changing your DNA to something less than human with CRISPER gene-editing technology, possibly through vaccinations. They are saying this will come like a flood, a tsunami. This will change our physical, digital, and biological bodies.
Your body will connect with blockchain technology used for buying and selling with digital currency. Sounds like the mark of the beast in the book of Revelation. Moving everyone into crowded cities will allow the world to return to its natural state and protect us from climate change, they want to do away with petroleum-based fuels. Already the world’s food supply has greatly diminished because of covid-19 and as they create more money from thin air, this will cause inflation on steroids, the book of Revelation says a day’s wage will buy one loaf of bread. They also want the population maintained below ½ billion in perpetual balance with nature, which means they want 7 &1/2 billion people dead. These people believe they are gods and have the authority to rule the entire world, they will own everything including you.
Now, let us look a little deeper into what the Bible says. Daniel 12:4 says; “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” Today knowledge is increasing exponentially. They are using 3D printers with stem cells as ink to print body parts, bionic eyes, ears, skin, hearts, livers, kidneys, etc. I read recently that the government has successfully completed long-distance quantum teleportation. This is information transferred faster than the speed of light and can’t be hacked. The power of a quantum computer running on quantum internet will likely exceed the speeds of the world's current most sophisticated supercomputers by around 100 trillion times.
The Bible tells us that in the last days, Israel will become a nation again, not only a nation but a rich and powerful nation and that the Jews would be brought back in unbelief, Ezekiel 36:22. It also tells us in many places that the Roman Empire will be restored, the EU. Israel became a nation in 1948 and it is rich and is the eighth most powerful nation in the world even though Texas is 31 times the size of Israel. Because of Israel’s great wealth, several nations will come against it to steal its wealth, Ezekiel 38 &39, Primarily Russia, Turkey and Iran with others. God will defeat these nations on the mountains of Israel supernaturally. America will not come to Israel’s aid perhaps because the rapture of the believers to heaven, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, will have decimated America and/or the takeover of America by the communist is complete.
Russia, Turkey, and Iran’s power will be decimated by the war which will leave the revived Roman Empire (the EU), Israel, and China as the most powerful countries in the world. The Antichrist from the Roman Empire will confirm the covenant with Israel and many nations for 7 years, Daniel 9:27, but will break the covenant after three- and one-half years and set himself up in the temple of God and declare himself to be God, 1 Thessalonians 2:4 and Matthew 24:20. The Jewish nation is still waiting for the promised Messiah as they don’t believe Jesus fulfilled that role and when the Antichrist signs the covenant they will believe he is the Messiah they have been waiting for, John 5:43, but will know they have been deceived when he sets himself in the temple proclaiming to be God. Then a remnant of the Jews, Zechariah 13:8,9, will flee Jerusalem Matthew 24:16-21 & Revelation 12:6, and be protected by God in Petra. The temple must be rebuilt before the Antichrist can set himself in it and Israel has everything in place to build it rapidly when the covenant gives them permission at the beginning of the 7-year tribulation.
After the tribulation begins (Revelation 6:1), four horsemen ride in close succession, the first is the Antichrist on the white horse who sets out conquering, and to conquer. He does this by war, the second horse which is red. War always leads to inflation and inflation leads to hunger and hunger to death. The third horse is inflation, a black horse and the fourth horse is death by all four horses, with the sword, hunger, death, and the beasts of the earth. The word beasts here is therion in Greek meaning wild beasts but the four horsemen are using these beasts therefore they cannot be literal wild beasts. This is the same word used for the Antichrist, the 1st beast, and the false prophet, the 2nd beast but I suspect it could also be biological warfare and AI. I also believe it is likely that the locusts in Revelation 9 are some sort of AI, perhaps super-soldiers, a cross between man and AI as the nations of the earth have been working toward that goal for decades.
Before proceeding to chapter 13 of Revelation let me lay some groundwork. Mind uploading, also known as whole brain emulation (WBE), is the hypothetical futuristic process of scanning a physical structure of the brain accurately enough to create an emulation of the mental state (including long-term memory and "self") and uploading it to a computer in a digital form. When I searched for “uploading your mind to a computer” in google, I got 128,000,000 hits. Many not only believe this is possible but believe it is in the very near future. If you were one of the men who are worth tens of or hundreds of billions of dollars, you wouldn’t want to die and leave what you sold your soul for to the world, you would want to live forever. Believe me, these people are counting on just that.
Recall above I talked about singularity and 3D printing body parts. Now we are adding uploading the brain to that discussion. When we read Revelation 13:11-18 we see some strange things going on. The second beast has powers to do miracles in the sight of men and he tells them to make an image of the 1st beast which had the wound by a sword and did live. I believe this image of the 1st beast is likely a 3D-printed entire body. Here is an article where they discuss the possibility of doing just that.
Putin And Biden Are Playing a Very Dangerous Game of Chicken. So, What Happens If Neither One Backs Down? - by Michael Snyder - http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/putin-and-biden-are-playing-a-very-dangerous-game-of-chicken-so-what-happens-if-neither-one-backs-down/
The United States and Russia are on a collision course. Unfortunately, the guys running the show in both countries are not exactly sane, and they deeply, deeply distrust one another. So what happens when a bunch of lunatics decide to play a game of chicken with the fate of the entire world at stake? Unfortunately, it appears that we are about to find out.
When Donald Trump was still in the White House, both the United States and Russia pretty much respected the status quo. But once Joe Biden took power, things changed dramatically. Over the past year, the Biden administration has provoked the Russians over and over again, and it became clear that there would be a major effort to add Ukraine to NATO.
The Biden administration assumed that they could push the Russians around without any consequences.
But instead, the Russians sent more than 100,000 troops to the border with Ukraine. It is the largest Russian military mobilization since World War II, and it is clearly meant as a threat.
The Russians are most definitely threatening to invade Ukraine, and they are assuming that this will motivate the Biden administration and other western leaders to negotiate.
But Biden and other western leaders are not blinking. They are absolutely determined not to give the Russians anything that they want, even if the requests are reasonable.
What this means is that Biden and other western leaders have decided to call Vladimir Putin’s bluff.
Okay, so what happens if Putin is not bluffing?
On Monday, we witnessed a very angry exchange between the U.S. and Russia during a UN Security Council meeting…
Russia accused the West on Monday of “whipping up tensions” over Ukraine and said the U.S. had brought “pure Nazis” to power in Kyiv as the U.N. Security Council held a stormy and bellicose debate on Moscow’s troop buildup near its southern neighbor.
U.S. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield shot back that Russia’s growing military force of more than 100,000 troops along Ukraine’s borders was “the largest mobilization” in Europe in decades, adding that there has been a spike in cyberattacks and Russian disinformation.
And then on Tuesday, Putin publicly warned that Russian security concerns are being completely ignored…
‘We are carefully analyzing the written responses received from the United States and NATO,’ Putin said Tuesday during a press conference with Hungary Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
‘But it is already clear that fundamental Russian concerns ended up being ignored,’ he lamented. ‘We did not see adequate consideration of our three key demands regarding the prevention of NATO expansion, the refusal to deploy strike facilities near Russia’s borders, and the return of the bloc’s military infrastructure in Europe to the state in 1997.’
This crisis could be over tomorrow if Biden and other western leaders agreed not to put western missiles in Ukraine and to not admit Ukraine as a member of NATO.
Just like we didn’t want Russian missiles in Cuba in the 1960s, the Russians don’t want NATO missiles in Ukraine now.
Unfortunately, Biden’s foreign policy team has decided that it simply cannot give Russia anything that it wants, and so there will be no deal.
And White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki just compared Putin to a “fox” on top of a henhouse…
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki slammed Russia for trying to turn the rhetoric around and express they’re worried about a threat coming from Ukraine – especially if it were to join NATO.
‘When the fox is screaming from the top of the henhouse that he’s scared of the chickens, which is essentially what they’re doing, that fear isn’t recorded as a statement of fact,’ Psaki said during her daily briefing Tuesday.
The Biden administration is not taking the Russians seriously.
But they should.
We are now closer to war with Russia than we have been since the Cuban missile crisis of the 1960s, and at this point even a small error could cause a horrifying global conflict to erupt.
With each passing day, even more Russian forces move into the border zone. For example, we just learned that two more battalions of Spetsnaz soldiers “are being moved to the Belarus-Ukraine border”…
Two battalions of crack Russian Spetsnaz soldiers are being moved to the Belarus-Ukraine border, stoking fears of an imminent invasion on the orders of President Vladimir Putin.
Those commandos will be joining 5,000 Spetsnaz troops that are already there…
They will join another another 5,000 Spetsnaz commandos already in position, according to Western military experts, who warn they could form the spearhead of a much larger force estimated at around 80,000 soldiers, including Russian and Belarus regulars.
Unlike the “woke” special forces in the United States, Spetsnaz forces are incredibly good at what they do.
Not too many that have gotten into a firefight with them have lived to tell about it.
We have also learned that Russia and Belarus will be conducting “major war games” in the border region in the middle of this month…
Major war games will then be conducted from February 10 and will see Russian and Belarusian units engage in a 10-day simulation of the ‘interception and suppression of foreign military aggression and counter-terrorism operations’ in what Shoygu dubbed ‘The Allied Resolve of 2022’.
Shoygu did not specify how many troops would take part in the war games, but Thomas-Greenfield said the U.S. believes Russia will post up to 30,000 troops in Belarus by early February.
It appears that the Biden administration is dead set against any sort of a deal with the Russians, and so now Putin has a decision to make.
Will he be the sane one and back down?
Meanwhile, we are being told that Iran is just “weeks” away from having enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb…
In the long list of foreign crises between which President Biden and his administration are bouncing, Iran has not gotten as much play in recent weeks in light of the deteriorating situation in Europe between Russian forces and the people of Ukraine. But according to a senior State Department official, Iran is continuing to move along with its nuclear ambitions and is now “weeks, not months” away from having enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb.
One way or another, a war between Israel and Iran is going to begin.
And once that war erupts, the Middle East will never be the same again.
We are right on the precipice of so many military conflicts that we have been warned about for years.
If global leaders were sane, they would be working as hard as they can to try to prevent World War III from happening.
Unfortunately, sanity is in very short supply among global leaders these days, and every man, woman and child on the entire planet will suffer as a result.
Nearing Midnight: Why Fed Coin Is So Dangerous – Todd Strandberg - https://www.raptureready.com/category/nearing-midnight/
Over the past couple of years, I’ve read several articles about the government’s research into the usage of a digital currency that is commonly referred to as a Fed coin. It turns out the Fed has been studying the possibility of issuing a cashless currency, and it issued a report on the pros and cons of implementing such a system.
The Federal Reserve, on releasing its long-awaited exploration of a digital dollar, took no position on the issuance of a central bank digital currency. The Fed’s strange ambiguity regarding a Fed coin is a clear indication that they are definitely working on such a system.
Billed as “the first step in a public discussion between the Federal Reserve and stakeholders about central bank digital currencies,” the 40-page paper shies away from any conclusions about a central bank digital currency or CBDC. The report was originally expected in the summer of 2021 but had been delayed.
“The introduction of a CBDC would represent a highly significant innovation in American money,” the report says. “Accordingly, broad consultation with the general public and key stakeholders is essential. This paper is the first step in such a conversation.”
One primary difference between the Fed’s dollar and other digital transactions is that current digital money is a liability of commercial banks, whereas the CBDC would be a Fed liability. Among other things, that would mean the Fed wouldn’t pay interest on money stored with it, though because it is riskless, some depositors may prefer to keep their money with the central bank.
However, the report also states that it “is not intended to advance a specific policy outcome and takes no position on the ultimate desirability of” the digital dollar.
The motivation for a central bank digital currency has been the success of cryptocurrencies. Some unknown person started bitcoin nearly ten years ago, and it was recently around $2 trillion in value. Several nations had talked about creating their only digital currency. A couple of years ago, Venezuela said it was contemplating whether it should create its own digital currency. Because Venezuela was in dire financial straits at the time, it seemed appealing to create its own cryptocurrency. Since it would quickly become worthless by the minting of unlimited coins, the idea of Venezuela cryptocurrency quickly faded from the headlines.
A government’s appeal in creating a digital currency is the ability to control how it’s used by citizens. When the US government issued $3 trillion of stimulus money during the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of the money was not spent. One report said that $2 trillion is still in people’s savings accounts.
If the Fed could issue a digital currency, and say, if you don’t spend this money by the end of the year, it will disappear, people would be in a mad rush to spend the money. The Fed could control what people spent their fed coins on. At first, they would stop people from spending their money on unhealthy things like beer and cigarettes, but then they would block anything that “the powers that be” don’t like.
A Fed coin would give the government incredible power to combat crime. The late author Hunt S. Thompson once wrote a check for $2 million to his drug dealer and wrote Cocaine in the memo. A shocked teller at the bank must have taken a picture of the check. With a Fed coin, government agents would be able to track and control the transaction of anyone who was known to be trafficking in drugs.
A Fed coin would be incredibly dangerous in the hands of a despotic government. It could monitor the accounts of all its enemies; it could track the activity of all citizens. If you bought a cup of coffee for someone on the government’s naughty list, the feds could come to you with questions.
I don’t know if Fed coin is going to be the system that the Antichrist will use to control the world. When bitcoin came out, some people speculated that it was the mark of the beast, but now there are 17,000 of these cryptocurrencies. The 666 system could come out of any financial institution. Technology has advanced to the point where a lot of people are probably wondering why we already don’t have a mark-like system.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six” (Revelation 13:16-18).
Transgender Surgeries and The Weight of Reality – John Stonestreet - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5186
Anabaptist theologian Stanley Hauerwas once said that in 100 years, if Christians are known as those who do not kill their children or their elderly, we would have been doing something right. May we, in fact, be known for nothing less than these things, but I hope we'll be known for far more. Specifically, Christians must be known as those who acknowledge created reality, in particular the goodness of the human body.
This won't be easy. Unthinkable a couple of decades ago, it's now normal to deny the purpose, the meaning, and the goodness of the human body. Increasingly the body is seen, not as a given of reality, but as a fully morphable canvas of self-expression. Not only do we celebrate unnatural ways of using it, we see it as something to be reinvented and remodeled, even mutilated if that allows us to "be ourselves."
Because Christians believe in a world created by God, including the human body, we must not allow what is considered normal to seem normal to us. We might be shocked and grieved, but we should always point to the truth of who we are, and oppose these ideas which destroy and degrade, rather than liberate human beings.
Any culture that denies what our bodies reveal about who we are must work hard to suppress the overwhelming evidence of reality. At times, like beach balls pushed below the water, this evidence re-emerges.
For example, just before Christmas, New York Magazine released an issue with a cover photo of a person with a beard and body hair, wearing nothing but briefs, staring at readers. A massive scar dominates one leg. The headline reads: "My Penis, Myself: I didn't need a penis to be a man. But I needed one to be me."
The person in the photo is a woman. The organ in question was surgically constructed using flesh taken from her leg. The author and subject describe her "transmasculine" surgery, performed in a San Francisco hospital, in full detail. The procedure was potentially life-threatening and involved physicians doing things that, in any other surgical context, would be considered harm, not help.
The result of the surgery was not a male body, but a wounded and disfigured female body. The author is now in near-constant pain and in constant danger of infection or rejection. Even so, this dysphoric woman viewed the process as a liberation from her own body.
By portraying this procedure as a surgery rather than an act of harm, and by portraying the choice to undergo the procedure as heroic rather than heartbreaking, New York Magazine bypasses any real discussion about a host of related ideas, ideas about sex, gender, humanity, morality, medicine, and more. At the same time, the cover photo, of a largely exposed woman with horrific scarring, points to truths that, in the end, cannot be suppressed.
This movement is, in reality, an assault on humanity. The bad ideas behind the movement leave victims in their wake. In a sort of gnostic remix, these ideas reject the most basic of created realities. Christians, who believe that God called our bodies "good," must continue to point to what is true.
First, we must point out that there are very real scars left when people deny reality. And second, we must point those with these scars to Christ, the One whose scars can make them whole again.
Back in June, an episode of "Blue's Clues and You" earned applause for featuring a pride parade of LGBT-identifying animals. Only later did viewers notice that one cartoon beaver, waving a trans pride flag, had scars like those of women who've had what's called "top surgery."
A Nickelodeon spokesperson confirmed that the producers' intent was to teach young children that this "surgery" is normal, and if women wish to have healthy breasts removed in order to mimic men, they should.
To point out that this sort of message, aimed at children, is body shaming and abusive will inevitably mean being called "transphobic," "bigoted," and "hateful." We may be cancelled. But to be silent is not to be loving. Rather, it is to be complicit in harm.
In this cultural moment, faithfulness to Christ involves not just declaring salvation but defending creation; not just preaching how men and women can be saved but that men and women exist. Churches will need to include extensive and thorough education on what it means to be made in God's image, why He made us male and female, and the difference that makes in modern culture.
All of which will mean proclaiming obvious, now unfashionable truths. But, given the damage being done by denying those truths, it's the only loving thing to do.
Daily Jot: Stupidocrisy: It’s just not enough - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
It’s not enough that a virus from a Wuhan, China lab killed a significant portion of the world’s population. Or that the United States government, through COVID Czar Dr. Anthony Fauci, actually helped fund gain of function for a coronavirus bioweapon with the Communist Chinese. It’s not enough that jack-boot policies were employed to shut down not only the US economy, but that of the world, over this COVID disease from China. It’s not enough that China was central to bribery schemes and influence peddling of politicians and corporate executives. It’s not enough that the Biden's—Joe, brother James, and son Hunter–were named in Chinese scandals long before Joe became president. No, it’s just not enough.
Let us remember that leading up to the 2020 election, the news media and deep state were caught red-handed suppressing information that democrat Joe Biden was totally compromised by communist China and Russia through his dealings to enrich his family with son Hunter as a conduit. The facts surrounding this corruption come from at least four sources: 1) Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee and the Senate Committee on Finance investigation; 2) Hunter Biden’s laptop; 3) Hunter Biden’s former business partner Bevan Cooney, who is serving time for the very business dealings Hunter and he did; and 4) Former business partner Tony Bobulinski’s emails and eyewitness accounts singling out Joe Biden as the godfather of the Jimmy-Joe-Hunter organized crime ring. It’s just not enough.
No, Joe became president anyway. And he is shameless about China. It’s not enough that China is behind tremendous death and suffering. No. Joe Biden and his crew have to reward China for all that it has done by giving it more of your hard-earned tax dollars that you pay for the privilege of experiencing these disasters. Joe’s initiative is to provide over a billion COVID home test kits, free of charge to every American, and probably every illegal squatter, who wants them. Well, nothing is free and these kits are not only not free, they are lining the pockets of the very country that brought us COVID in the first place—China—to the tune of $1.8 billion for over 354 million (about 1/3 of the total) Chinese-made testing kits.
The Epoch Times reports that the kits are “sourced from iHealth Labs, a California subsidiary of Chinese medical gear manufacturer Andon Health. Since December, the company has won contracts worth over $2.1 billion with the US federal government and some states, according to Andon’s filings and federal contract records.” Remember early on in the pandemic the Chinese were supplying the US with masks? It just wasn’t enough. The Chinese had to have more. And Joe Biden had to give it to them. You can’t make this stuff up. As the Lord says in Ezekiel 22:12, “You have taken usury and increase, and you have gained of your neighbors by extortion.” So true. Biden and China. C’mon man, isn’t it enough? Say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
Daily Devotion: Marked by Love - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
Then Jesus said to them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.’ —Mark 1:17
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/marked-by-love/ - Listen
We use the word follower in a lot of ways today, especially in reference to social media. If you’re on Twitter, for instance, you have followers.
Jesus didn’t tweet, but He did have followers. And His followers were pretty eclectic. This group included some fishermen, a tax collector, and a zealot. A tax collector was someone who colluded with Rome as the occupying power in Israel at that particular time. On the other hand, a zealot was dedicated to the violent overthrow of Rome.
So among Jesus’s followers were a Jewish tax collector named Matthew, who was in collusion with Rome, and a man named Simon, who was a zealot dedicated to the violent overthrow of Rome. It would be like having members of your family voting for candidates from opposing political parties.
The 12 men whom Jesus chose as His disciples were the most ordinary of men. They weren’t saints in the traditional use of the word. (Although anyone who has put their faith in Christ is technically a saint.) These men weren’t scholars or sages. Rather, they were hopelessly human and remarkably unremarkable. But they were available to the Master’s call.
As Christians, we are members of a different Kingdom. Jesus said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35 NKJV).
Christians should be marked by love and not by always trying to win the argument. If you find yourself shouting at people, if you find yourself always uptight and angry, and if you’re using your social media account to blast this group or that person, then something is wrong.
We need to glorify God with whatever platform He has given to us. As followers of Jesus Christ, we need to be characterized and identified by our love for God and our love for others.

Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
