Why is this life so messed up?

-A +A

The origin of the mess

As you go through this life and look at what is happening around you, you will notice that some things in life seem to be in such a bad state that you would think that there must be a reason why things are this way. The problems all began in the garden of Eden when Adam messed up and we know that this is the case because in Genesis 3:6,7 it says "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons." and we see that this is where nakedness came from and along with it the curse of pornography and all other related activities. Anyone with a bit of sense knows that it is the only place that nakedness could have originated from and when we read Genesis 3:16-19 where it says "Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return." we can see why life is so hard for the majority of the people in the world. If you live in a country where life is good, you might make the mistake of thinking that God's judgement does not apply anymore, but this is only the case because there is someone somewhere in the world who is getting less than they need to live on each day so that you can live in relative luxury, so people that live in the poor countries still feel the full force of what God has decreed.

The mess of languages

Another thing that has messed up the world is the fact that different countries speak different languages and this has made it a lot easier for countries to fight with each other because we know that it is a lot easier to go to war over a tiny dispute rather than to go to the trouble of learning the other countries language so that negotiations can happen. We can read in the Bible where this originated from in Genesis 11:1-9 where it says "And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth." and there have always been conflicts between the countries of the world since that day.

The church in a mess

Another thing that has become messed up in this world is the Church that was started by Jesus. In a lot of the churches that you might go into you will find people singing, dancing and even sometimes screaming and they will be convinced that this is how people are supposed to worship, but you will find that the people in the Bible are a lot more clued up on how it should be done. In Joshua 5:14 it says "And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?", in II Chronicles 7:3 it says "And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.", in II Chronicles 20:18 it says "And Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the LORD, worshipping the LORD.", in Nehemiah 8:6 it says "And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God. And all the people answered, Amen, Amen, with lifting up their hands: and they bowed their heads, and worshipped the LORD with their faces to the ground.", in I Corinthians 14:25 it says "And thus are the secrets of his heart made manifest; and so falling down on his face he will worship God, and report that God is in you of a truth." and in Revelation of John 7:11,12 it says "And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen." and you will notice that even the angels agree that falling on ones face is the most respectful way of worshipping God, but a lot of the Christian churches have decided to go with a way of worshipping that seems to have been invented by the pagans. To rub it in even more it looks as if the Muslims have decided to do things the correct way, by bowing down to the ground, and yet it is the Christians who will say that they are closer to God, because they say that they follow Jesus, but they have decided to use the least respectful way that they can to worship Him. If someone decided to read the Bible, then stumbled upon a church where the people were singing, dancing and screaming, I would not be surprised if they thought they had mistakenly entered a night club that operates during the day. If they then decided to leave in a hurry and have a quick look in a mosque they could easily then think that they have found the true church because the people there are worshipping in the correct way as it was performed in the Bible. The reason I say it is the correct way is because it was how the children of Israel, Paul and the angels in heaven worshipped and I will always take their word over the word of the people of this modern world, since I know that God has not changed. Some people even try to use David dancing before the Lord as an excuse for why they can dance, but if you read II Samuel 6:14 where it says "And David danced before the LORD with all his might; and David was girded with a linen ephod." and then read Zechariah 4:6 where it says "Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts." we see that David was dancing with "all his might" while God prefers things to be done by His spirit. If you then read II Samuel 6:21,22 "And David said unto Michal, It was before the LORD, which chose me before thy father, and before all his house, to appoint me ruler over the people of the LORD, over Israel: therefore will I play before the LORD. And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight: and of the maidservants which thou hast spoken of, of them shall I be had in honour." you will notice that David even admits that he was being vile and that he was playing which would explain why he only did it while he was outside, yet the people who now dance think that it is ok to play and be vile while they are in the church. You should also take a note of the fact that David was dancing without any loud music playing so if they are trying to be like him they should dance without music as well.

Messed up by greed

The Bible gives another cause for the troubles in this world, in Revelation of John 17:1-6,18 it says "And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth." and you should take note of the fact that she reigns over the kings of the earth and that the inhabitants of the earth (that includes you) have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication which goes a long way towards explaining why people prefer to horde their money and feel that it is more important than saving their soul from eternal destruction. A lot of people will tell you that she is the Roman Catholic church, but you can get a clue to who she really is by comparing 2 verses of scripture in the Bible. In I Timothy 6:9,10 it says "But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." and in Revelation of John 18:23,24 it says "And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth." and if you make a note of the fact that Paul says that "the love of money is the root of all evil" and that when the whore is destroyed she has the blood of "all that were slain upon the earth" then it should not be too difficult for you to join the dots and have a reasonable idea of who or what the whore of Babylon is.

Can we escape this mess?

So with everything so messed up what can be done? Some people have said that the tone in some of my writings is a bit harsh, but there is a reason for this. Imagine that you have lived your life and have tried to enjoy it as much as you can, then there you are standing before God at the judgement continually saying to yourself "why didn't I listen to those crazy people because some of what they were saying did actually make sense but there seemed to be something in my mind that was stopping their words from cutting into my heart like they should have done" and how gutted you will feel to know that you did actually have a chance but decided to throw it away for a few years of fake happiness. The reason for the harsh tone is that when you are in front of God you will not get another chance and when you hear your final judgement from God, my harsh tone will seem extremely tame by comparison. Also if you think you will escape God's judgement, because you think he doesn't exist, then think again because He is the only source of the DNA that is sitting inside each of the cells in your body controlling how they work and keeping you alive. The scientists can only pretend that they know where it originated from and you can have a laugh at some of the theories that they have come up with to try to explain how it was formed.
When all is said and done, my mission is to teach anyone, who is willing to learn what it takes, how to make it to God's kingdom. I am not going to do it with my words, but with the words of Jesus because he is the foremost expert when it comes to getting there because that is where he came from. My job is to lead you to the Holy Spirit so that you can be taught about God's word directly and I am not talking about the fake holy spirit that seems to make you go crazy like with some of the people in the church buildings that you might come across (more information is available in my article entitled "Will the real Holy Spirit step forward please?"). You don't have to even worry about going to church because the Church is actually a group of people and not a building and Jesus did not expect his future disciples to sit around in a building singing songs all day because this does nothing to help the primary mission which you can read of in Luke 4:18 where it says "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised" and you can see here that hiding in a church building is not mentioned.
