“No Satisfaction – 101”…Blog.
“No Satisfaction – 101”…Blog.
This morning… while reading through the book of ‘Numbers’ in the Bible it struck me about how I am, much like those ‘Children of Israel’; that Moses led out of Egypt and through the wilderness. It seems the ‘mundane of life’ often leaves us in with an ‘Un-Thankful’ attitude about Life! All that “God”… had done for ‘Israel’, was soon ‘Forgotten!’ The miracles, the deliverance from slavery, the Divine protection from Pharaoh’s army… and supplying them with “Manna” = ‘Angels Food’… and they still “Complained!” As I read the Word… I find that I must sometimes confess my ‘like attitude’… to God, as Sin!
*** (Numbers 10:35-36) And it happened when the ark pulled up, Moses said, Rise up, Jehovah, and let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You.
(Num 10:36) And when it rested, he said, Return, O Jehovah, to the many thousands of Israel.
*** (1Timothy 6:6-7-8) But godliness with contentment is great gain.
(1Tim 6:7) For we brought nothing into the world, and it is clear that we can carry nothing out.
(1Tim 6:8) But having food and clothing, we will be content.
In this present… economic, employment and ‘national crisis’… ‘many’ do not know where to turn. For a very long time, our country has had economic prosperity to excess. Many now thinking about retirement have seen investments and securities… evaporate into nothingness. The Great Depression of the 20’s… has come full circle, only to return again. It is impossible to… borrow our way out of debt… as our government has been “Wrongly”… trying to do! This too caused dissatisfaction.
*** (1Timothy 5:24) Some men's sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment. And some they also follow after.
*** (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness lifts up a nation, but sin is a shame to any people.
*** (Proverbs 29:18) Where there is no vision, the people perish; but he who keeps the law, he is blessed.
Recently in ‘Advertizing’… there has been a big push to make one… even more ‘dissatisfied’… in order to sell more of their “Products & Services”. I even went and bought some of that “Anti-Aging Cream”… but it did me… “No Good!” [Joke] …I am still ‘aging’ and it will not stop it! Which of us drives only ‘Highway Miles’; yet car advertizing is bragging about ‘30-plus’ highway miles! Does a new vehicle… really make you more important than your neighbor? Will that ‘Flat Screen TV’… really make you enjoy life more? Or is it only a ‘caveat’ of that electronic drug called… “Entertainment?”

*** (Proverbs 15:14-15-16) The heart of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouth of fools feeds on foolishness.
(Pro 15:15) All the days of the afflicted are evil, but gladness of heart is a continual feast.
(Pro 15:16) Better is a little with the fear of Jehovah than great treasure and tumult with it.
Are you ‘Satisfied’… or are You = “Thankful”… for what you have, ‘either’ little or more? They are simply… “Opposites!” Remember what you ‘Own’… “Owns You!” Those that have purchased houses… they could not afford with ‘Large Mortgages’… are now realizing that. Those credit cards which were supposed to be used for ‘convenience’… have been used in excess to increase one’s debt status. What seemed so good at first… has come back to ‘haunt many’. Perhaps now is the time to make some Immediate Decisions. Simply… “Stop ‘Spending’ – for Nothings!”
*** (James 4:13-to-17) Come now, those saying, Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city and spend a year there, and we will trade and will make a profit,
(Jas 4:14) who do not know of the morrow. For what is your life? For it is a vapor, which appears for a little time, and then disappears.
(Jas 4:15) Instead of you saying, If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.
(Jas 4:16) But now you boast in your presumptions. All such boasting is evil.
(Jas 4:17) Therefore to him who knows to do good, and does not do it, to him it is sin.
“TV” & “Videos”… bring into our ‘hearts & minds’… ideas and concepts that we should ‘not’ have! Those “Chic Flicks” give women… unrealistic expectations about ‘men’ and ‘how’ they should be. “Pornography” does the same to men and gives them… unrealistic expectations about ‘women’ and ‘how’ they should be. This attitude of “Casual Sex” and “Sex before Marriage”… has led our society and culture ‘to accept’… “Anything ‘But’ = God’s Standard!” The “Perversions of Homosexuality”, has been renamed… ‘Gay’… to ‘force it’… to be acceptable to our society and culture.
*** (Romans 1:22-to-28) Professing to be wise, they became fools
(Rom 1:23) and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and birds, and four-footed animals, and creeping things.
(Rom 1:24) Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.
(Rom 1:25) For they changed the truth of God into a lie, and they worshiped and served the created thing more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
(Rom 1:26) For this cause, God gave them up to dishonorable affections. For even their women changed the natural use into that which is against nature.
(Rom 1:27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust toward one another; males with males working out shamefulness, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error.
(Rom 1:28) And even as they did not think fit to have God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do the things not right,
One of the ‘Cesars’ of Rome… had a “Horse as a ‘domestic partner!’ When our society degrades even ‘more’ than it has… will universal health care… pay ‘Veterinarian’ bills for their “Animals?” Will the continued… “Murder of Innocent Babies”… killed by Abortion in their Mother’s wombs… “Continue?” Surely God; the God of the Bible did not change His Commands into Suggestions? When you do not take a stand against the Evil… or even speak Out about IT… you become part of the Problem… instead of the Solution.
*** (Genesis 4:10) And He said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries to Me from the ground.
*** (Exodus 20:13) You shall Not Murder Innocent Life!
When will YOU… become more “Dissatisfied with Sin”… than with ‘Things?’ Only then… when we come to the end of ourselves… will we perhaps as a People… and a Nation… Turn to God and cry out to Him… to forgive us our Sin… and Heal Our Nation…?
*** (2Chronicles 7:13-14) If I shut up the heavens, and there is no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send a plague among My people;
(2Ch 7:14) if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
*** (Psalms 138:2) I will worship = toward Your holy temple, = and = praise Your Name = for Your loving-kindness = and = for “Your Truth's” sake; = for You [God] = have magnified = = = “Your Word” = = = ‘Above All’ = Your Name. = [Psalms 119:18 & 1Samuel 3:21 & Deuteronomy 29:29]
"NO”… Real Christian... ‘Fears’, = The Truth = of the Word of God... “Unless”… ‘they are’… Out of … “Obedience & Fellowship” …with ‘GOD’… and with “His Word”...!"
(Micah 2:7) House of Jacob, it is said, The Spirit of Jehovah is limited, if these are His doings. = Do not = My Words = do good to him = who walks uprightly?
