“Entropy – 101”…Blog.
Recently I took a… week off from writing blogs. I haven’t been on the internet very much either. I needed a break from all the… ‘Press of life’. So too, I did watch myself so that I did not …slip into a state of Entropy. It would be too easy to just give up on life. Perhaps I would even become as the person on whose care the bumper sticker read… “Since I have given up all hope… I feel much better!”
I will not bore you… with an extensive description of Entropy, but will allow you to look at your life and see “IF”, it is taking over…? Our country of America used to be full of ‘Hope & Promise’ for the future. Since the fallout of “9-11”… there has been a malaise that has taken over. Many, because of the recent… “Financial Fallout of the Economy”… and the massive Government Bailout… ‘Have lost’… most of their Hope for the future. Rightly so, as many can see what we, as a nation are slowly becoming a… Socialistic European Nation Model.
This week I went… shopping at “Wal-Mart” where I do most of my shopping. Table Napkins, the 500-count package, have gone up… ‘65-cents’… in the last three months. Pitted Black Olives which I use, on my ‘home made burritos’ have risen… ‘45-cents’ in the last two months. All the prices that have risen when the… ‘Gasoline’ prices skyrocketed… have “NOT”, come back down soon! Many prices on foodstuffs continue to climb with no end in sight. Even the store employees are complaining.
Is it worth the… effort to complain? Can the consumer change the price structure by using a formal complaint to the Head Office? I have contacted my Senator and voiced my opinion… “Against the Health Care - 1,600 page proposal”… to receive ‘only’… a letter of acknowledgement. It seems that all have their agenda… and nothing will stop the steamroller of Entropy that has taken over.
I did not… vote for ‘Change’… as most of “You” did! Knowing that Politics is the ‘largest religion’ here in America… I could for see the calamity… looming on the horizon. Most have lost their Jobs and their Houses. Notice I did ‘not’ say Homes? A home is a house with people. You cannot even believe the advertizing… “Home for Sale!” You do not get the people… when you buy the House, called a Home. The 14th Amendment of our Constitution prohibits the sale of humans.
Have you ever heard… the ‘Saying’… “Too late = to close the barn door = when, the Horse is Gone [escaped]?” So too… the massive shift of the Wealth of America… is moving overseas. We are no longer, the World’s ‘Greatest Manufacturing’ Nation. The dollar is worth less and less each month on the worlds… ‘Financial Currency Exchanges’. I purchased “BPS” [British Pounds Sterling] for my next trip to the UK this year and was sorely disappointed by the declining dollar.
Surely “God” has… is removing… ‘His Blessings upon America!’ Say it isn’t so? How about the promise of jobs for everyone? How about the promised economy boost that comes from Change? How about the false promise of… Health Care for Everyone? Did you know that Americans purchase more… ‘Pet Food’… than they do… “Baby Food?” America will never recover its former glory and world status. We have sinned by the Murder of Millions of Innocent Babies by Abortion. God will not allow us to go on, without reaping the consequences.
How about the… “CO2 levels?” This false claim of CO2 causing Global Warming is just what it is… Another Lie! How about AMERICANS… Stop Drinking… Carbonated [CO2] Drinks, Sodas and Beers…? What would that do… to remove the CO2 from the Atmosphere? Did you know that there are… One Hundred Thirty One BILLION cans of carbonated drinks annually.
Simply put… “Entropy”… is the decay of living and non-living things. As you get older, some of your parts may not work like they used to. Do you find when you exercise it takes you longer to recover that it did when you were younger? Do you have aches and pains in places… you never knew you had? Does the finish on your Vehicle… no longer look new? Do you women need to wear more or less makeup? Yes even the “Silliness of Evolution”… that MORE Complex life forms come from LESS Complex life forms is simply… “Ludicrous!”
Do you find it harder… to remember facts or easier? Most of us have a dedicated place for our Keys. Why? To free our memories from the mundane and keep it free to fill with meaningless entertainment. Yesterday I received a message from someone. They asked me, “Why are your blogs so Long?” My response, “How is it you can sit through a Two Hour Movie or a Three Hour sports show or concert… and complain about 5-minutes of reading?” That is simply Entropy. The Less we challenge our ‘mental cognitive’ abilities… the More we lose those abilities.
(Isaiah 28:13) But = the Word of Jehovah = was to them = precept on precept, = precept on precept; = line on line, = line on line; = here a little, = there a little; = that they might go, = and = fall backward, = and = be broken = and = snared = and = taken.
IF you will take the time… and read through the Old Testament of the Bible, you will see how that Israel, God’s chosen people… went from good to bad, simply by disobeying the Instructions that God had given them… in His Word. I can remember, that Church was mostly… the Sermon about the Word of God. Now it has declined from the teaching of the Word of God… to sermons about political, social and economic things. Entertainment has taken the place of the Word of God. Sadly to say… it is part and parcel of the Entropy that affects all areas of life.
How about you… in your personal life? Have you gotten too busy to spend time with God in His Word. Do you remember when you were… “NEW In Christ Jesus”… and had a zeal for Him and loved to read His Word to know more about Him? Where did that zeal for Him… Go? Has Entropy so affected your spiritual life that you have put away your Bible and settled for Christian Music or Christian Videos, on You Tube? God Forbid… that His Bride, The Church of Christ Jesus… should Leave their First Love?
(Revelation 2:4-5) But I have against you that you left your first love.
(Rev 2:5) Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent, and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and will remove your lamp stand out of its place unless you repent.
Many times on many sites… I see Christians posting sayings by Christian authors. No matter how truthful and wise those saying are… “Nothing matches the Word of God!” That is like, “Substituting” a picture of your loved one… rather than them personally. … ‘Ouch!’ All those writings… “Cannot be a substitution for the Word of God!” Doing so is simply Entropy. You have taken the Real… and substituted it with the figurative. Is that leaving your First Love? Simply put… “What can ever substitute for the Word of God?” … “Absolutely… Nothing!”
(Psalms 119:11) I have hidden = Your Word = in my heart, = so that I = might not sin = against You [Lord].
(John 17:17) Sanctify them = through = Your truth. = Your Word = is Truth.
Entropy can be overcome…! Simply start out, over again and again and if necessary, again! I used to write down on my computer monitor face… those Bible verses, that I use often, somewhere about 100. When my monitor died, I choose ‘not’ to write those references there on my next one. You too can ‘force yourself’ to remember and remember. Make you mind your “Slave” and force it to learn. Foreign languages are often good for that cognitive process. Some keep a sharp mind by doing cross word puzzles. Some even read books, instead of watching those mindless TV and Videos! …LOL!
(1Corinthians 9:27) No, = I keep on = beating my body = and = making it = my slave = so that, = after = I have preached to others, = I myself = will not somehow = be disqualified.
(2Timothy 2:15) Study earnestly = to present yourself = approved to God, = a workman = that does not need = to be ashamed, = rightly dividing = the Word of Truth.
(2Tim 2:16) But shun = profane, vain babblings, = for they will increase = to more ungodliness.
Surely you have heard the saying… “Use It or Lose It?” That is to counteract… Entropy! It will work with you body and your mind. The mind is simply the gateway to your Soul. What you allow into your mind will… “Affect or Afflict”… your soul. How many times have you said, IF I could only lose 10-pounds? Obviously ‘wishing’ it away does not work, believe me, I tried! …LOL! It takes… “Simple Discipline to overcome Entropy!” I cannot do it for you, it has to be your choice.
(2Corinthians 4:16) For this cause = we do not faint; = but though = our outward man perishes, = yet = the inward man = is being renewed = day by day.
(Psalms 19:14) Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Jehovah, my Rock and my Redeemer.
How do you replenish… your inward man? Simply by feeding on… the Word of God! If the words of your mouth are not His, and the Meditation of your Heart is not on Him and His Word …then you are starving yourself. Many immerse themselves in Christian Writers. They replace the Word of God, with ‘Human Opinions’. Yes some are even good opinions, but they are NOT… the Word of God. You must allow the Holy Spirit of God… to teach your heart, mind and soul… from the Word Alone! One question…? Will those opinions of those Christian authors, last forever? The answer is in, the next line…!
(Matthew 24:35) The heaven and the earth = shall pass away, = but = My Words = shall ‘not’ = pass away.
(John 16:13-14) However, = when He, = the [Holy] Spirit of Truth, = has come, = He will = guide you = into ‘all’ Truth. = For He = shall ‘not’ speak = of Himself, = but whatever = He hears, = He shall speak. = And = He will announce = to you things to come.
(John 16:14) He = will glorify Me [Jesus], = for He will = receive of Mine = and will announce it to you.
The Only Way… to overcome Spiritual Leanness… and the Entropy, from not disciplining yourself… is to start again. Spend the first part of your day, in the Word of God. Make… “Mark 1:35”… your priority just as Christ Jesus did. Give back to God, the Glory due His Name! Start again and tell Him in ‘prayer’ of your desire to do so. He always welcomes His children back…!
(Mark 12:29-30) And = Jesus answered him, = The first = of all the commandments is, = "Hear, O Israel, = the Lord our God = is one Lord;
(Mark 12:30) and = you = shall love = the Lord your God = with = all your heart, = and = with = all your soul, = and = with = all your mind, = and = with = all your strength." = This is the first commandment.
Will GOD… ever give you a command… without giving you His Grace, Ability and Strength… To Do So…? Absolutely NOT! But you do have a ‘Free Will’ and you must Choose to use it. God never forces His children to obey. You simply choose… to obey – or – not to obey. Which will you… Choose?
(Psalms 119:18) Open my eyes, = so that I = may behold = wonderful things = out of = Your Law [Word].
