Just A Thought I'm Pondering

I went to the zoo with my family and a very
 interesting thing happened.
 A little tiny four or five year old girl that I have never met
looked up at me and said "whoremonger."
I'm guessing she was repeating her parents.
  It wasn't hello or something friendly, just "whoremonger".
It's a shame that little children are being taught to be
mean to people.  She probably didn't even know
what she was saying but it was shocking and left an
imprint in my mind and heart.  The bible does say
whoremongers but I'm not sure that should be a
word that should be taught to little
children to say directly to someone.
Besides if for some reason the child thought I was a
whoremonger, why would she?

The New Things God Created

The New Things God Created 

The bible doesn't  say that there will be any new animals or plants created by God.  We do know however, if He wanted to he could.  There are a couple instances in scripture that God promises new things under unusual circumstances.   They were miracles that involved temporary atmospheric  change not known to man.   Most of the time it was where circumstances and prayer meet, but sometimes it is the circumstance of sin.
   Before the curse of sin entered the world it was perfect , but after the fall of man the earth brought forth poisonous plants, and thorns.  Earth brought forth biting bugs and destructive larvae.  What once was harmless in the perfect world became harmful in a sinful world.  Death was daily in some form. 
   One of the first atmospheric changes was the first time it rained upon the earth.  God's heart was grieved because the whole earth turned away from Him and chose even the vilest of sins to rule their hearts.  People's imaginations were evil continually.  God knows the heart of each person and He knew their hearts.  God took note of one person and His family, Noah and His family.  Noah was a man of faith and pleased God with his life.  God told Noah to build an ark, and to warn every person of a coming disaster that would befall the known world.   They didn't believe Noah, but laughed at Him and mocked him.  One hundred years He preached to a rebellious people, that hated God in their actions.  They had never seen rain before.  God destroyed all of the world with a flood that killed every living person upon the earth except eight people.  All creatures died except  two  of each kind of creature and animals for sacrifices.
  God created a new thing, a rainbow , the rainbow is a symbol of His promise  never  to destroy the world again with a flood.  The rainbow belongs to God and He gets full credit for it.  The name rainbow originated from God,  it is a proven fact that it belongs to God.   All the rights belong to Him.  God, meaning our great creator, who created the heaven and the earth. created the rainbow.  The rainbow was introduced to Noah and his family while they were praying and giving thanks with sacrifices for their sins unto God. 

  God always keeps His promises, He never lies, He cannot lie because He is perfect.  He doesn't want us to lie either.  Even a little white lie, as some call it, is a sin to God.  It only takes one sin to need a Saviour.  Our Saviour is Christ Jesus who gave His life for our sins.  Forgiveness is available to all who believe and trust Christ for salvation.
God promises if we turn to Him, trust Him for salvation and give our lives to Him.  He will give us a new heart.  
 Ezekiel  36:26
 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

The heart that God is talking about here is not our beating heart physically, but the center of everything we are and how we think.  It will be changed and we will become a new person in Christ.   God opens our hearts to the truth of His Word.  God desires that all people be saved from the punishment of eternal hell.  He offers the gift of eternal life to all who will accept Christ by faith. Christ then comes into our heart and abides with us day to day. We can pray directly to God through Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 

For years and years the Christian faith has used the butterfly as a symbol of becoming a new creature in Christ.  God is the author and maker of the butterfly.  It was one of the creatures on Noah's Ark.  The butterfly is the most beautiful insect of God's creation.   God gets full credit for the butterfly and owns all the rights.  He is the original author. 
God causes a change within us when we believe, we become children of God.  We are adopted into the family of God. 

 Romans 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

In the old testament God makes a new thing as a judgment to those who provoke him.  There's a few times the Bible speaks of the earth swallowing up people who provoke Him. 

Numbers 16:30
But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD.

The bible teaches us to fear the Lord.   Wisdom will lead us to fear Him and love Him.  God speaks of hell more than He does about heaven. We all have a soul that lives forever and after we die we will go one of two places heaven or hell.  Our soul will leave our body and we will wake up in one of those places.  If we are truly children of God through Christ.  We will wake up in the presence of our God.  If we have rejected Christ and His way of salvation we will wake up in eternal fire and suffering.

Psalms  111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

Young People,
God's desire for you is to know Him and trust Him.  We are all sinners, we have all fallen short.  It is by God's love and mercy that we may find forgiveness for our souls.  God doesn't want anyone to go to hell, He's not willing that any perish into eternal damnation.  People have a choice to accept or reject Christ.  God leaves that up to you.  Choose you this day whom ye shall serve.   God has chosen to give you His Word. Faith cometh by hearing the Word of God.  Pray today to God and ask Him to help you understand His Word and He will help you to understand.  He knows if you really want to know.

Father God,  I pray that you will open the eyes of those listening today, that they will understand your
Word.  I pray that they would grow in wisdom today by realizing that there are circumstances for the choices we make in life.  Thank -you Lord for your mercy upon us.  Keep us from evil and direct our paths.

In Christ Name I Pray This, Amen

Genesis 9:11-15

And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
