"On being alone"


   

Hi John if this word is wrong or in some way contrary please do not publish , for I wish not to stub the toe of a believer.

Hi Doves , we are all in a sense alone ,( separated ) , however the world, this world is the place of our presence (physical reality , the now) , our continued hope and promise is that we who have accepted Jesus' irrefutable sacrifice & irrefutable resurrection , wait for Jesus soon return.

What am I trying to say , we are all born into this world & are not necessarily of it ,however we still must operate within it ( we have no options on this one ), with all it's absolute beauty , with all its absolute misery.

The salt of the earth we can be to our counterparts i.e.: friends, family & work colleagues, being patient , kind hearted but above all patient , I keep asking for more of it, I have much need of it, working in the industry that I do.

 

We who acknowledge the majesty of Jesus are not alone, does it not say that the Lord himself has numbered all who call his name ,

 1 Kings 19 V18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.This from one who counted himself alone !

Does he not know when a sparrow falls from the sky, has he not counted the hairs upon your head(s), does he not also know all the stars by name, Psalm 147:4
He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
how great is our God .  You are not entirely alone there is community here a sense of oneness, keep a hold unto the last hour.

The God of Abraham Jacob & Isaac knows you personally & that of your loved ones , keep heart for he will not let one of those he loves to escape . How do I know this, I have to believe, believe in his promises ,  a mental act of will , I have hope , hope unending.

For me & my household we will follow the Lord ,( pray for your household(s) )

I feel this verse is most appropriate in more ways than one !

Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Yeshua bless you all
