The Word

Revelation 2. 8 – 10

“And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”

Stop Now

The devil has not made one (1) pretty sunset,

not one (1) beautiful baby,

(nor anything truly attractive.)

and you’re allowing him to “remake” your life? ! ?   THINK again!

Tic, tic, tic, tic,

The clock chipped away at the night.

As if ashamed, with its hands spread,

To hide that chubby face;

Rimmed in dark figures

As hair and beard.

Night time.

Why Hell?

Why Hell?   You’ve known (perhaps been 😦 ) the strong-willed teen

who weighted known punishment against the desired forbidden action. Dad/mom said, “No, you may not do such-n-such. If you do I’ll give you X.” The brat (not too strong a word) thinks “I really want to do this and though X will hurt (or be embarrassing, or temporarily uncomfortable) I think it’s worth the punishment.” So they go/do/act/dress in such a way as displeases dad/mom, get caught, suffer the consequences and are happy with their decision. They got by. They “had their cake and ate it too.” The brat who gets by grows to be a malicious adult who continue weighing “crime” against “punishment.” “Is the chance worth the ‘time’ or ‘fine’ if I get caught?”

Said criminal/outrageous sinner finds there’s a religion which “offers” a deal. He can do his wickedness and after death go to a “holding tank” where he’ll suffer but eventually (damnable theory – really a lie), then he’ll get to go to heaven. He will have again, even after death, been able weigh his desire to do wrong with the punishment (slimy purgatory) and gotten by. One who believes (so sadly) this lie thinks, “Hey, I’m tough, I can put up with even fire for a thousand because after that I’m free – I beat the “system.”
