Food For Thought
When Ahab met the Prophet Elijah, he accused him of being an instigator and troublemaker. He seemed to always be prophesying some calamity.
"And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?" (1 Kings 18:17)
Elijah told Ahab that he was the real troublemaker because he refused to obey God's commandments.
You see, our world, our reality was created by the Almighty God. That is the honest truth. We did not evolve from monkeys, fish, or an ameba.
We were created by an all-wise God. I know, to believe that a person spoke biological matter into existence is both beyond amazing and mind-blowing. But, It is what it is.
Along with that understanding comes purpose and responsibility. We are indeed not alone.
We are watched! And, actions weighed!
We can't live without purpose or believe there are no consequences for our behaviour. When Ahab met Elijah, there was a famine in the land because of bad behavior.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever...and our bad and outrageous behavior today is affecting the environment. Even people who don't understand or know the Lord, understand "Karma".
Life experience teaches us, even if we don't believe the Bible, that there are consequences for our actions.
Nobody....nobody gets away!
"If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:13-14)
