Tuesday, July 2, 2013 Nineteen die in fire, shelters offer no protection. Luke 12:13-40
On Sunday June 30th, in the year of our Lord 2,013, in addition to the loss of 200 homes in one town, there was also the loss of 19 young firemen, most in their early to mid twenties. 19 young men in the prime of fitness, young men in excellent health and physical attributes, yet they died, died fighting a fire, a fire that may have been preventable, but that's for another day.
The town's fire chief has promised that he will not rest till they learn from that fire. Well, I would say no one need look any further than Luke Chapter twelve to learn two most important lessons from these 19 deaths.
13 And one of the company said unto Him (Jesus), "Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me." 14 And Jesus said unto him, Man, who made Me a judge or a divider over you? 15 And He (Jesus) said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, 'What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?' 18 And he said, 'This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.' 19 And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.' 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
22 And He (Jesus) said unto His disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?
27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is today in the field, and tomorrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?
29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Luke 12 13-34 ACP/KJV
There are two very important lessons we can learn from the deaths of the nineteen and the verses of Luke 12. First we learn that you do not know when God is going to call you to judgement. And second there is nothing that you have here on earth that you can take with you.
Nineteen young men died. Were any Saved? I don't know, God knows. But this I do know, They took nothing with them as they entered into eternity. And this I know also. If their name is not in the Lamb's Book of Life, then the fire they went thru here on earth is nothing compared to the one they will spend eternity in. But if they were prepared to face Christ, if they had established a relationship with Him while they were here on earth, they have no singes, no memory of that fire and nothing but joy, love and contentment in the hearts right now.
What about you? Are you ready right this very micro second to meet the Lord God of Creation? Are you, this very instant. prepared to stand before Him? If you were one of the nineteen, would you now have a smile on your face or the dread of eternal damnation?
Sometime in the not too distant future I want to talk to you men in the Militias, about Luke 20:25 and Matthew 24:24.
Lord, make my faith as that which I perceive the Samaritans to have had. Amen.
As you ponder today's Scripture, ponder also your own relationship with Christ. Are you a Samaritan or are you a Galilean?
Lord give us eyes to see, ears to hear and a heart attuned to Your word.
Men, let us strive to be men who follow Christ, and pray our wives will, as Peter's and Abraham's wives did, simply follow.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
