God wants us to build a strong faith in Him as well as the future that He holds out for us. this means as we walk in His paths our faith is to grow stronger and ever still stronger.
Isaiah declares to us that our God has told us what would come about before it happens, Isaiah46:9,10. Isaiah says that God does this in order that when it takes place we might have reason to plant our faith firmly in Him who knows all and can do all. This if anything should help our faith to grow.
All God’s inspiration that He has placed in the scriptures if we capture them and incorporate them into our lives will be enough to inspire us to hold fast our faith.
They will also be the inspiration we need to have our faith to grow and place our lives under His wings.
Scoffers have been around for a long time.
today the scoffers are going about much the same business. They would like to see nothing better than this.
If this were to happen then they would have the freedom that they want to live the way they see fit.
We as Christ’ followers need to be ever on our guard that we do not in any way fall into being a scoffer of any kind.
Scoffers turn themselves into fools. Being a scoffer long enough makes it so that it becomes impossible on our part to believe in a God that is able to rise from the dead and then return in judgment of anyone.

Have you ever stopped and taken a good look at children’s programming to determine if it is a child friendly as you think? When was the last time that sat down with your children to watch some of their favorite shows to make sure that they are appropriate?
Sadly the days of Mr. Rodgers and the land of Make Believe, where the worst thing a child would see is a carefully crafted skit about losing a pet or a loved one, is gone. Gone are the days of Mr. Wizard and Math Net, which sought to make science and Math look cool.
In this modern age where heterosexuality and boundary pushing are deemed cool, the age of innocence is no more. What would have once been considered adult only themes have made their way into children’s programming. As sadly the age of innocence is being eroded away, and few people even seem to realize it.
A Picture or two of what is is like under wicked ruler ship.
The other side of the coin is that when a righteous leader rules
In other wards there is rejoicing in the streets while God’s law is followed. There is also joy in the home and when Jesus returns the righteous will reign with him as kings.
Under which kind of rulership would you like to live under?
Which kind to you think that this world is living under now?
And its only getting worst.
Rejoice or not to rejoice is our only two choices.
As I looked at this beautiful picture I imagined what a pleasant day it would be hiking on that valley trail with the deep blue sky above me. Somehow I imagined that the weather was just right, cool enough to make the walk refreshing, yet warm enough not to have to be weighted down with a bundle of clothes.
As I thought of that winding path, I wondered where that path would take me. Would it lead me to the mountain carrying me higher and higher into its chilly heights? Or would it wind me around its thick base carrying me past little streams, into hidden pastures, and into quiet towns full of mysterious shops?
