In Part 1 we covered a world in which you can’t trust what you hear or see anymore. It seems without hope nor a future that is positive and that you can be excited about. However there is another system or what we call a spiritual kingdom.
I want to share my personal story of discovery that starts in 1984. I was basically an atheist up until I was 25. I had never been to church or even thought about there being a God. I had a good career and was doing well climbing up the corporate ladder. I enjoyed sport and was good at squash. However, I had an emptiness inside and could not see that life could only be about eating, sleeping having a family and moving up the career ladder and then dying at the age of about 70-80. Was that all that life was about? It seemed so pointless except for the family bit.
There had to be more. I started reading about the history of the world and other books including a book called “The Late Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsay. The book said that the Bible has much to tell about the imminent future and that it reveals all the signs, seen in today’s society, that foreshadow the return of Jesus Christ. This was in 1984. Isn’t there a book called that? I only realised this now. Anyway the book got my attention as it said that we lived after death and there was a God that I could know. It did not make sense at the time, but I knew there was truth in it. There is what I call a God space vacuum inside all of us that only He can fill. You can search and try drugs, sex, career, money and other religious practices but they will not satisfy your need for a real relationship with the God that made you.
I started to read more Christians related books and then someone at work I found out was a Christian. I asked her hundreds of questions and she answered all of them with in assured manner. She had something that I was missing. Peace and joy.
One night some few months later I heard about a Christian tent meeting being held at the Johannesburg showgrounds not far from where I lived in Yeoville, Johannesburg. There was a typical highveld thunderstorm that night but I still went as I had this longing to see and hear what was going on. I sat at the back of the huge tent which could seat over 3,000. I listened to the bible message which I cannot remember to this day. At the end of the teaching Pastor Ray McCauley who had organised the meetings gave what they called an “Altar call”. Meaning asking people to come down to the front all those that wanted to make Jesus their Lord and Saviour and be saved from our sin and separation from God.
I walked up all by myself to the front. We all said a prayer and then were led to a side area where some counsellors explained what had just happened in our lives. He said that I was now born again and that might spirit had been recreated and that I was now connected to God via Jesus Christ who died for my sins. I left that meeting full of joy and a peace that I could not explain. I was no longer afraid of death. I had not been coerced or pressurised into anything it was my free will based upon hearing what God and Jesus had done for me, because they loved me. John 3:16 I needed to know I was loved unconditionally, but I had not realised that until then.
From that point on I have had good and difficult times, but through them ALL I have known that God is with me and all I need to do is ask for His help in faith.
There are two spiritual kingdoms on this world. The Kingdom of Darkness and the Kingdom of Light. We are spiritual beings first that live in a body and we have a soul. When you die your spirit and soul live on. It is only your body that decays. It does not cease to exist. It is just now in its individual atoms/molecules which cannot see.
A kingdom needs a King and that is Jesus Christ the Son of God. He came to gives us life and life in abundance. It probably sounds like a fairy tale to you and it does initially to all non-Christians.
The human mind cannot understand the things of God, they have to be spiritually understood.
Jesus said that He is the Way, The Truth and The Life and that no one comes to the Father except through Him. That means that other religions cannot get you to God or to have a relationship with the living God.
You can stay connected to the Matrix that has been built by man and his rules that change and depend on control of the masses. Money is the currency of life. As explained above the red pill equals understanding/seeing the spiritual kingdom and the blue pill is staying part of the matrix which is controlled ultimately by Satan who is evil and wants to see all mankind killed and suffer. Rich men are controlled by the Devil without necessarily realising it and they are moving mankind away from Jesus and by creating false religions and worldviews. Where man becomes his own god and makes up his own subjective moral and ethical standards that can change whenever he wants.
It is now June 2020 and I see that what the bible says about the end of days coming true before my eyes. Wickedness growing more each month. Wars and rumours of wars. Strife, riots and the possibility of cash disappearing which the Apostle John wrote about in about AD95 in the book of Revelation, saying:- Revelation 13:16-17 NKJV He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Although it does not mention cash specifically we need to understand that in John’s day that they had bartering and coins/gold/silver and they were the legal tender. Here John is saying without a mark on people in the future we would not be able buy or sell. If you take cash out of the equation then you cant do transactions on the sly behind closed doors. You will have to use what we have currently which is either online via an app or using our debit/credit cards via a banking point which means the financial system can control if you can buy or when and what you buy. They always have a record. This means that have complete control.
There is much more in the bible about how the world will look in the future and they had no idea how we would progress in 2000 years. I am not saying that the end of days is next week or year, but it is coming if you look around you. The movement of the world towards more control and less liberty for the citizens is there for all to see. The does not seem to be getting better. Jesus predicted this very clearly.
So please think about how content and happy you are in your life right now. Are you happy with the direction of the society that you live in? Does what you see around you concern and worry you?
I have not come to believe what I do now quickly. I am now 63 years old and have seen many things happen and society change so much and not for the good. People act like victims to get attention and love. So many people are lonely, and families broken up. People in debt.
There is a solution to the way you see the world and thus it does not impact you so much and you have faith and joy because I know that God is ultimately in control even though I cant always see it. I have a peace and I am looking to seeing Jesus one day.
Take the red pill and start reading a bible and asking questions about Jesus by finding a Born-Again Spirit filled Christian who will be able answer all your questions.
You can always contact me first and I can help direct you to resources.
I have written this as I want everyone to experience the love of God in their lives and know that they were not an accident and there is a reason for all that is going on in the world.
PS :- What are you looking for and what do you know about the real God of the bible? Have you ever read the bible?
What you hear in churches today is not necessarily what the bible says. We have all come across hypocrites and men trying to make money out of religion, but that is not God’s doing. Men have free will and God never overrules it.
We have to come with a repentant heart saying that we have lived our way and it has not worked and we are not fulfilled.
In todays world it is difficult to make any sense of what is happening and who is in control. Once you know the God of the bible and His Son Jesus that all changes. God is in overall control and all men will be judged either in this life or afterward.
