A 2000 Year Old Picture 4-Today: R.E.S.T

A Picture of Avoidance
Scroll To Bottom of Page To See God’s Wisdom Word Picture

It’s my heart’s desire to help all who read Rock-Solid Living In A Quicksand World-Rewind to experience Rock-Solid Eternal Spirituality Today. (R.E.S.T.) I feel the same way about those who read this blog; therefore, it is important for me to share there are those times we need to practice healthy/holy avoidance. I am talking about avoiding certain types of people during these challenging kind of years in which we live.  In other words there really are actually a certain kind of people God would have His people avoid. And He would want His people to do so for their own well being.   I know this may sound kind of counterintuitive to how Jesus lived, but I do not think so.

Topsy Turvy Tables

“How Dare You Defile God’s House!”

Jesus, for example, actually went on offense when people simply decided they could live independent of God: Check out the infamous day  he created a whip, swung it around, and turned over tables that belonged to some “holy Joes and Janes” who were nothing of the kind.

People Who Were So Use To Being Enslaved

“We Are Not Slaves!”

Or review John 8:32, and the following verses, where Jesus was hoping to help some, who reportedly “believed,” become truly free from the chains of their sins that bound them. They refused to admit they were slaves to anything or anyone, including the sin that ensnared them. He was really clear in separating what they decided to do (that would enslave them) from the the truth that set them free. Sadly, it seems he had to leave them to their own sin and death. He wanted to set them free indeed, John 8:36,  but they would not admit they were in bondage to sin. Much like  people today, they wanted the civil right to keep on in their bondage to sin and death. This kinds of reminds me of how Paul described the people whom God gave up on in Romans 1. It’s not that God doesn’t care, but God will not force love, mercy, grace — nor even salvation– on anyone who rejects it, and He will leave them to themselves. He will also protect His children to help each one R.E.S.T.

The Rock-Solid Faith Walk

As you have received Christ Jesus The Lord, so walk you in Him,
having been firmly built up in him and established in your faith.
Colossians 2:6-7

Rock-Solid Faith Walk

     A faith walk is only as complicated as you make it: It simply means that you function, each day, based on what you believe.  When you live by what you believe, think, feel, have opinions about, make assumptions, and even dream, if these are based on Christ and His teachings, you are walking by Faith in Christ and empowered by His grace to be an overcomer. In time you will be made stronger in every aspect of your journey.

Now practice what is preached here and be blessed.  R.E.S.T.

Chaplain McGowen

Nothing Is More Powerful Than God

As we struggle with all that is going on in the world, we know this to absolutely true: There is NO ONE and NO-Thing more powerful than God… PERIOD.   R.E.S.T in this absolute truth.

Yes, this is the President of The United States saying this, “From The Bully Pulpit.” (President Theodore Roosevelt) And whether or not you like him, please give this prayerful consideration. For what he is saying is true, and if we live this truth, God will bless America Again.
