Memories of Things to Come - By Pete Garcia -
Remember the former things of old,
For I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like Me,
Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things that are not yet done,
Saying, 'My counsel shall stand,
And I will do all My pleasure Isaiah 46:9-10
There used to be a time when you could leave your front door unlocked at night. There used to be a time when folk generally aimed to be nice to each other. When a dollar was worth a dollar. When schools not only taught the three "R's", but the civic duties that afforded us the privilege of being American. When schools allowed prayers and the Ten Commandments hung ever mindful on the walls. There was actually a time, when politicians could generally be trusted to do what was in the best interest of our nation. We used to be like that, not many decades ago, but now, those days seem like some mythical, innocent age in a faraway land.
I pray you will afford me the opportunity to lament a moment on the current state of affairs for our nation. The USS America struck an iceberg a few decades ago, and has been in an incremental state of sinking. Unfortunately, it was happening at such a slow pace that most people either have forgotten, or were willingly ignorant that it was happening at all. However, as time progressed, the ship has started to list more noticeably to one side, albeit, due to our size, most American's ignored the lean in their drinks and simply attributed it to the tossing of the ocean.
Within the realm of American Christendom, overwhelmingly, the idea that Christ will soon return has been all but ignored. The reality of Christ's soon return has not been preached. The message of Christ's soon return has been labeled "sensational" and thus dismissed. The popular rebuttal of "every generation has thought that" is repeated often, usually by well-meaning, soft-spoken, seminary-trained, clergy.
And yet, the furniture is now starting to slide across the deck.
The question then is whether there is any prophetic significance to our national demise.
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continuefor forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Revelation 13:1-8
In the context of Revelation 13, we know that there is coming a system and a leader, who will wield his total authority over the entire earth.
The entire earth also includes, the United States. Or what's left of it.
This system (personal speculation here), will come in the form of an Artificial Intelligence system that is created in Europe, through CERN or perhaps some other European entity, which cracks the code on bringing this system online, and quickly gains control over all the other information, military, and economic digital systems connected to the grid. All other electronic systems will become controlled by it, and since we live in a day and age, in which the World Wide Web wires the world (and the US in particular) together, the prospect of the power of this Artificial Intelligent system, is frightening.
We also know this power cannot be American in nature, because Daniel 9:26-27 states that the same man who heads the Beast system as mentioned above, is someone who comes from within the boundaries of the old Roman Empire. Although America could claim some familial linkage back to Rome via European colonialism (Spain, France, and England), I think many nations could equally make that claim...at which point, makes the claim moot.
In regards to our nationalistic decline and its prophetic implications, there are too many factors that I do not have the space to go into, but will summarize my understanding into a few bullet points; the bottom line is we as a nation, have turned our back on God, and are now, reaping the consequences of these decisions. (See Romans 1:18-32)
In reaping the consequences of our actions, we are electing men and women to rule over us, who do not have our, or their, best interests of the United States in mind. These people, both Democrat and Republican, are being influenced either knowingly or unknowingly, by demonic principalities and powers to abandon our constitution and nationalism, for globalism. They are being influenced to believe that the only solution to all the world's problems is to set aside our laws and borders, and come together on a global scale. This is why our leaders today, are doing things that seem so antithetical to the well-being of the preservation of the US as a singular, sovereign nation.
At present, we have another 15 months to go until the next US president can take over, and between now and then, conservatives bemoan the prospect at the acceleration in which our current administration is feverishly working to undermine America's greatness. Even if we make it to the next election, the damage being done now by those currently in power will make our recovery virtually impossible.
Many still have hopes that a national recovery is in our immediate future, and that a return to our former greatness comes by way of electing another Ronald Reagan-type leader. It would be nice to have a leader who cared for the well-being of this nation, but economically and mathematically speaking, the game is up. At $18 trillion dollars in debt, and upwards of $100T in unfunded liabilities, we do not have enough taxpayers paying into the system, to ever pay back the money we have borrowed. Aside from the debt's we've accrued from other nations, the most devastating one is the debt to ourselves, because we've borrowed against our children and grandchildren's future, so we can live comfortably today.
Moreover, because the world uses our currency as its Global Reserve currency, our economic demise will absolutely force a restructuring of all the world's economic and currency markets. I believe it is in this vacuum, that this final "beast" system will rise to fill the void that the American experiment left vacant.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world-the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life-is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. 1 John 2:15-17
The average American Christian does not know why their nation is falling apart and increasingly becoming hostile to their faith. On the other hand, the watchful Christian, may be dismayed, but at least is not surprised by this, because they know God's word has already told us that the in the last days, the world would wax worse and worse. Watching the 'hand of God' being removed from your nation, and living through its incremental and impending collapse, is not a pleasant experience. Were it not for the promise of our Lord's return, many would have given up hope long ago and regressed back to their former lives. That is why holding on to the "Blessed Hope" is so crucial in these dark days. And because most of the American churches today are not teaching the Lord's soon return, we are in fact seeing many depart from the faith in record numbers.
For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame-who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself. Philippians 3:18-21
While this appears all 'doom and gloom' as we so often we are accused of being, we know that there is an eternal, golden age coming. There is coming a Kingdom who will have no end and there will be an end to all corruption, greed, murder, perversion, violence, and every other deviant form of sin Satan ever devised.
At the head of this Eternal Kingdom, is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who will rule and reign forever, and we as His Bride, with Him. So even though we are witnesses to the increasing signs that this world is in its death throes (1 John 2:17), we should live each day with the understanding that we are simply pilgrims passing through. One day soon, Christ, our Ark of Safety, will return to take us to be where He is, before the world enters the time in which Christ stated would be the worst period in all of human history. (Matt. 24:21, John 14:1-3, Rev. 3:10) At the end of those seven years...
And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold-the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure." Daniel 2:44-45
Deals, Covenants and Elections - A.V. Rauf -
From a Biblically prophetic vantage point, we are entering some very exciting times as the Spring of 2019 has arrived. There is much to say so I will get right in to some exciting prophetic developments right away:
The United States officially recognized the Nation of Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights. U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States will recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is internationally recognized as Syrian territory. And it is happening on the very day of Purim, the last Jewish festival of the year.
The festival of Purim is celebrated every year on the 14th of the Hebrew month of Adar (late winter/early spring). Purim 2019 began on Wednesday night, March 20, and continues through Thursday, March 21 (March 22 in Jerusalem). It commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman's plot "to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day," as recorded in the Book Esther.
Trump's statement marked a dramatic shift in US policy over the status of a disputed area that Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Middle East conflict and annexed in 1981. The very next day the Syrian government vowed to take back the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights as its allies in the Middle East condemned US President Donald Trump on Friday for moving to recognize Israeli sovereignty over the territory seized in war.
Regardless of one's political viewpoint, our mandate is to always pray and intercede for all leaders:
1 Timothy 2:1-3-I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
If you recall, last year, U. S. President Donald Trump publicly acknowledged Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. Furthermore, it was also is important to recognize that the American embassy in Tel Aviv would moved to the city as well. Again, whether or not one supports or dislikes the current president of the United States, it must be noted that he is the first US president since President Harry Truman to honor God by recognizing Jerusalem. And now the United States officially recognized the Nation of Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
This is very interesting. Already in the eye of many Jewish Rabbis President Trump is viewed as a type of King Cyrus. According to the Bible, Cyrus the Great, king of Persia, was the monarch under whom the Babylonian captivity ended. During the first year of his reign he was prompted by God to decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt and that such Jews as cared to might return to their land for this purpose.
It was very possible now that the prophesied destruction of Damascus, and the Psalm 83 War 83 war could very well happen soon especially since Donald Trump has declared that the Golan Heights is under Israeli sovereignty. Could this be a step towards the Ezekiel 38 war with Russia wanting the spoils i.e. Golan Heights!
Furthermore, Russia, Iran & Turkey are now literally setting camp near the Golan Heights. We already know that Turkish troops have entered Syria to fight Kurdish military forces and are advancing southward towards the Israeli border. The Bible mentions a coming war in the Book of Ezekiel Chapters 38-39 that clearly identifies these nations forming a coalition to attack Israel. Please see the post below for further insight.
Read: Coming Soon To a Theater Near You
Israeli elections are scheduled to take place in early April of 2019. It is after the elections that the Trump/Kushner Middle East Deal will be released. Although details are sketchy and unconfirmed as of now, we do know for a fact that the deal will include a wider Middle East peace plan between the Arab nations, the Palestinians and Israel. We also know that it would include some form of land for peace arrangement. The timing of this is all no mere coincidence.
What we need to be observing when the deal is released, and if accepted by the parties, is the response to it by all parties, especially those that oppose Israel. Will it lead to the Daniel 9 covenant that is confirmed by the antichrist or will it lead to the war of Ezekiel 38-39 or the destruction of Damascus as mentioned previously? Remember God has established a covenant with Israel:
Ezekiel 37:26-28 26 Moreover I will [a]make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27 My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 28 The nations also will know that I, the Lord, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore."
On that note, yet another significant elections that takes place this year is the elections for the European Parliament. Many Bible Prophecy scholars agree that the coming world leader, otherwise known in the Bible as antichrist will come to power from the European Union, which is the Revived Roman Empire. In May and June there are the elections for the European Parliament. Is it possible the antichrist will be chosen as a strong leader during and after these elections? Will he then ultimately "confirm," the Mid-East Peace Deal that Trump and Kushner are about to announce after the Israeli elections????
Now to see if we are truly close, what is inside Donald Trump's peace plan? Since Donald Trump is compared to Cyrus, is it a possibility that what is included in this peace plan is the go ahead for the Jewish people to build their third temple? Can it be possible it will divide Israel? Or to be more specific, will it divide Jerusalem??
I am under the impression the peace plan may fail and more then likely cause a war between Israel and her surrounding neighbors. The antichrist will come later on the scene to make the failed peace plan even stronger and then... The 7 year tribulation period will begin. We shall see how all of this ties together prophetically.
Stay tuned because its about to get very interesting.........
Ready or Not - By Daymond Duck -
First, it was AOC. Then, it was Bernie Sanders. Now, it is Beto O'Rourke.
On Mar. 13, 2019, former Texas Rep. and candidate for the U.S. Senate, Beto O'Rourke, launched his campaign to become president of the U.S.
He used the event to say, "We have 12 years to fix the planet or we suffer the extinction of the human race."
It is too early to know who the globalists will endorse, but we can be sure that they will put big money behind their candidate, get their candidate favorable coverage in the media, have illegals voting where they can, etc.
On another subject, it was recently reported that the president of the Mormon Church, Russell M. Nelson, and Pope Francis held a relationship-building meeting at the Vatican in Rome.
The Bible doesn't reveal the identity of the False Prophet, but I have to admit that the theology, words and actions of Pope Francis sets off alarm bells.
On another subject, it was recently reported that all international passengers will undergo a face scan at the 20 largest airports in the U.S. by the end of next year.
The above three stories have implications for world government, world religion and tracking everyone (things that will happen after the Rapture of the Church).
On another subject, Jason Greenblatt, Pres. Trump's special assistant that is working with Jared Kushner on Mr. Trump's peace plan, held a 4-hour meeting at the White House on Mar. 7, 2019, to brief Mr. Trump's faith advisers and other well-known guests (John Hagee, Joel Rosenberg, etc.) on the issue.
Mr. Rosenberg recently blogged that after the meeting broke up, he had lunch with VP Mike Pence, and then they met with Pres. Trump, Sec. of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Adviser John Bolton in the Oval Office where they discussed Israel, Jerusalem, Iran and No. Korea.
I don't know if anything good will come out of the meeting, but I am pleased to know that these issues were discussed with a reliable expert on Bible prophecy at such a time as this.
Our leaders need to know what the Bible says, and we need to pray that God will guide them and use them to accomplish His will.
Concerning Pres. Trump's peace plan, I have the impression that Joel Rosenberg believes that the plan will be released; it will be loaded with good things for the PA; the PA will probably reject it; at least a few Arab nations will decide that the stalemate has gone on long enough; some will establish diplomatic relations with Israel; and ultimately there will be a peace treaty.
No light was shed on what was said about Jerusalem, Iran, etc., other than the fact that the Iranian threat is causing some Arab nations to rethink their position on Israel.
Concerning Arab-Israeli relations, on Mar. 13, 2019, Prime Min. Netanyahu revealed that Israel is holding secret meetings with about half a dozen Arab and Islamic nations to expedite the process of normalization.
The motivation behind these meetings is the Iranian nuclear threat, and one of the most significant points is the need to speed up the recognition of Israel.
These nations know that Iran's immediate goal is the destruction of Israel, but Iran's ultimate goal is the establishment of a Shiite world religion and government.
Their continued existence of Sunni Islam depends on stopping Iran, and it must be soon.
Concerning Bible prophecy, many church members have their fingers in their ears and their heads in a hole in the sand, but it is being discussed in the White House, significant events are taking place on a daily basis, and Jesus is coming soon - ready or not.

News from Hal Lindsey Media Ministries - Hal Lindsey -
Because the relationship between Israel and the United States has become so secure during the first two years of President Donald Trump's administration, it's sometimes easy to overlook the fact that much of the world still opposes the tiny Middle Eastern democracy. Because of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's steady, strong, and conservative leadership of Israel, we take for granted that everything is stable within our closest ally's borders.
For the first time in years, rockets were fired last week from inside Gaza toward Israel's largest city, Tel Aviv. Sirens sounded throughout the area and the entire country went on alert.
Both Hamas and Islamic Jihad denied responsibility, but since Hamas rules Gaza, Israel holds that terrorist organization responsible for all attacks originating there. Egypt does, too.
Israel struck back at several Hamas terror centers. So far, the incident has failed to escalate appreciably, but it just reminds us that Israelis live under the constant, day-to-day threat of violent attack.
As another reminder of the hostile intentions of Hamas, a Palestinian "court" in Gaza "found Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas guilty of high treason and sentenced him to life in prison." (The Jerusalem Post).
Of course, Abbas was not present at the mock trial, but it was "aimed at showing what awaits any Palestinian who dares to work with Israel.... Verdict: Any Palestinian who accepts a peace plan with Israel will also be found guilty -- and signing his own death warrant." (Khaled Abu Toameh, The Gatestone Institute)
Hamas is slowly gaining control of all Palestinian politics. Mahmoud Abbas is being propped up from the outside. When there is an election, or when Abbas dies, Hamas will seize all power. And it won't be pretty for any Palestinian who ever cooperated with Israel.
On April 9, 2019, Israel will hold a general election. The focus, especially of the Left (Israel has a "deep state," too!) is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
In modern Israel's history, only David Ben-Gurion served longer as Prime Minister. Like Ben-Gurion, I believe Netanyahu was raised up by God at exactly the right moment in Israel's history.
Before Netanyahu, Israel was in real trouble. For several years, its leaders had been trying to appease the unappeasable Palestinians. Mr. Netanyahu led the nation out of that dark time and brought it to an amazing level of prosperity, military strength, and stability.
But now, he's in real trouble.
In late February, Israel's Attorney General announced that he would indict the Prime Minister on charges of bribery, fraud, and breach of trust. Many observers feel these charges are, at best, trivial and inconsequential, and, at worst, contrived and deceptively and maliciously disingenuous. (Once again, Israel has a "deep state," too!)
The AG also announced that he would delay the legally required hearing until after the election. That means that Mr. Netanyahu must run for re-election with a fraud indictment hanging over his head. One which the Leftist media reminds Israelis about daily. (Remember, Israel has a "deep state," too!)
Meanwhile, retired IDF general Benny Gantz is currently Netanyahu's main rival. Gantz is the former Chief of General Staff of the IDF. He was promoted to that position by Mr. Netanyahu.
It always amazes me how so many of Israel's military leaders veer left when they assume political office. Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak is Israel's most decorated military figure. When he was PM, he caved to almost every demand made by Yasser Arafat. He tried to give away Israel's sovereignty and security at Camp David with Bill Clinton's encouragement. Israel was saved because Arafat really didn't want an agreement and turned Barak down.
PM Ariel Sharon was, perhaps, Israel's most famous and admired military leader. He was fearless and unconventional. He was considered the hero of the Yom Kippur War.
Yet, as Prime Minister, Sharon made a bold, but dangerous decision. He forced all Jews to vacate the Gaza Strip and ceded its control to the Palestinians. No matter his strategic goals, Gaza has been a thorn in Israel's side ever since. Hamas quickly seized control of the Strip from the Palestinian Authority and it has been a hotbed of terrorism and a threat to Israel's national security since then.
The Israeli media calls Benny Gantz a "centrist." His campaign strategy seems to be, "Say as little as possible." He has yet to endorse either a two-state or one-state solution to the Palestinian conflict.
However, several years ago, Gantz helped write a plan to unilaterally give significant portions of the West Bank to the Palestinians. If Israel's mainstream media succeeds in unseating Mr. Netanyahu, Israel may once again be fighting for its national sovereignty and security.
The Bible speaks of strange and extreme weather events in the times leading up to the end of this Age. The worst of it will come after the Church has been raptured. But we may be getting a foretaste of it now.
Experts tell us that the United States was recently struck by a "bomb cyclone." It hit hardest in the Midwest and Plains states, but its effects were felt from Wyoming to the East Coast, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. It brought rain, ice, snow, tornadoes, thunderstorms, massive flooding, and hurricane-force winds.
A "bomb cyclone" occurs when the barometric pressure drops more than 24 millibars in a 24-hour period. A sudden drop in pressure can mean strong winds and intense storms.
Something like that is happening in our culture, too. We have seen a sudden and severe shift in our attitudes toward right and wrong.
A time traveler from only ten years ago would be stunned at how the world has changed. The overall moral climate has taken a staggering fall.
With a meteorological "bomb cyclone," barometric pressure plummets, then comes the wind and hail, tornadoes and blizzards. But unless you are aware of the pressure change, the storms seem to be coming out of nowhere.
The decline in basic decency and morality is like that. Morals have fallen dramatically and dangerously. Now a massive storm is brewing. We must realize that our society's blatant turn toward unrighteousness will not be without consequences.
The "sudden" lurch by several states toward extremely late-term abortions -- actually infanticide -- is just one example. The Bible says that in the last days, "...men will be... brutal." (2 Timothy 3:1-3 NASB)
Killing babies is brutal!
It's as if western civilization has lost its collective mind!
Last week's brutal and brazen murdering of 50 people in two mosques in New Zealand forces us to ask some hard questions. If society treats SOME human beings like garbage, will that change how it treats ALL human beings? I think the answer is increasingly clear. Yes!
It is having a devastating effect. In America, suicide is now the tenth leading cause of death. Among people between the ages of 10 and 34, suicide is the second leading cause of death.
We are learning the hard lesson that there are consequences when we turn our backs to God's principles.
Also on this week's program, I am going to share some thoughts about how we reached this point in our culture.
In my book, Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth, I wrote about a concept I described as "Thought Bombs." I listed several of them, showing the evolution of thought in western civilization.
On this program, I will discuss two of them: Immanuel Kant and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.
I will show you how the ideas of these two men have reverberated through the recent centuries, bringing us to the crises we face today.
But I promise not to leave you without hope. For in Jesus Christ, we have eternal hope!

Daily Jot: No peace despite Mueller report - Bill Wilson -
After 22 months and over $25 million, the Special Counsel investigation into whether Donald Trump or his campaign conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential campaign is over. The report, according to a four-page summary issued by Attorney General William Barr, stated:"[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities." Further, Barr's statement said, "the Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign."
Unfortunately, Special Counsel Robert Mueller left the door open for this ongoing coup attempt to continue. Yes, continue. Mueller said "he employed 19 lawyers who were assisted by a team of approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and other professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, executed nearly 500 search warrants, obtained more than 230 orders for communication records, issued almost 50 orders authorizing use of pen registers, made 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence, and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses." Yet Mueller reported that after making a "thorough factual investigation" into obstruction of justice by Trump or his team, the Special Counsel did not draw a conclusion.
Barr reported that "the report sets out evidence on both sides of the question and leaves unresolved what the Special Counsel views as "difficult issues" of law and fact concerning whether the President's actions and intent could be viewed as obstruction. The Special Counsel states that "while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him."" This leaves the door wide open for the coup-makers to continue their obstruction of government and communist-style investigations at taxpayer expense for as long as they would like. In the same breath, Mueller also gave the people a platform on which to demand an end to these investigations.
The report "identifies no actions that, in our judgment, constitute obstructive conduct, had a nexus to a pending or contemplated proceeding, and were done with corrupt intent, each of which, under the Department's principles of federal prosecution guiding charging decisions, would need to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt to establish an obstruction-of justice offense." So the coup will continue with one side wanting further investigations and the other side wanting the coup to stop. Isn't it time We the People should demand an end to this nonsensical cover up to the dastardly doings with Russia by the Clintons, the immediate past president and the Democratic National Committee. But then again, as Jeremiah 6:14 states, "They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people lightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace."
Daily Devotion: The Source of Happiness - by Greg Laurie -
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. - Revelation 3:20
C.S. Lewis wrote, "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."
Are you content? Are you a happy person? Or, are you thinking, "If I just had this, I would be happy"? You won't find happiness in the things this world offers. It won't be found in possessions. It won't be found in accomplishments. It won't be found in fame. It won't be found in any external thing. Happiness does not come from seeking it but from seeking God. Happiness will be found in a relationship with God.
Happiness is not about what I have; it's about who has me. It's the relationship I have with God that brings the ultimate contentment. As David wrote in Psalm 23, "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want" (verse 1 NKJV). When the Lord is your shepherd, you can find perfect contentment.
Tell me what you think you need, and I will tell you what you really want. What you're looking for in life is a relationship with God. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me" (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your life to be your Savior and your Lord? Jesus is ready to forgive you, but you must ask Him to come into your life. The day you do that, your questions will be answered. The day you do that, you will find the contentment you've been seeking in life. The day you do that is the day you literally will change your eternal address from Hell to Heaven.

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
