Frankenstein And Our Culture

7 Jan

Frankenstein And Our Culture…

Most people who know the story of Frankenstein miss the point of the story. “Frankenstein” was not primarily a horror or monster story, but a morality tale. Dr. Frankenstein attempts to play God and create life from death.

The result is the creation of a monster that ends up destroying everything he loves and cares about, and ultimately the doctor himself. The message of the tale is biblical. When man attempts to play God, or to “become as God,” the end is always destruction and death.

We are now witnessing the phenomenon on a global scale – as man, through science, tampers with the fabric of life, or when he takes it upon himself to redefine right and wrong, or to disregard the ways of God – man is, in effect, playing God.

And the end of that road is always destruction. We live in a Frankenstein civilization. All the more, as believers, we must lift up the name of God, in everything we do. For in an end-time civilization – there are only those who play God – and those who worship Him.

For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 1 Timothy 2:5

Lift up the name of Jesus in everything you do and make Him Lord of everything.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,


Your Problems – His Eyes

6 Jan

Your Problems – His Eyes…

Do you have problems you’re focused on in your life right now? Ten years ago or even five years ago, you probably had problems, challenges, crises, concerns, and worries you were dwelling on that seemed so big.

But if I asked you what those things were that you were so concerned about ten years ago, or even five years ago – most likely you wouldn’t be able to recall them. The problems have long since passed. The challenges have long ago ceased. The crises have long ago disappeared. And what you were so worried about, now, you can’t even remember what it was.

What does that reveal? There are things in your life which cause you to worry, problems which seem to overshadow everything else. However, five or ten years from now, you most likely won’t even remember what it is. And even if you do, it won’t be as big as it seems now.

But the love of God will be just as important then as it is now. So stop worrying about what you won’t even remember years from now and focus, instead, on what you will.

Keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. Jude 1:21

Today, whatever you’re dealing with, concerned about, worried over, whatever the problem or issue – look at it in the big picture, it will pass away, but your blessings in Jesus will remain.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,


Heavenly Eyes

Heavenly Eyes…

The story is told of a man who was taken up to heaven and allowed to stay on the condition that he could not indulge in his habit of criticizing whatever he saw. He saw a cart stuck in the mud, with one pair of horses yoked to its front, with another pair yoked to its rear – the angel was urging both pairs of horses to move forward. It was more than the man could bear.

He started criticizing and was immediately seized by two angels and shown to the door. Before the door closed behind him, he looked back and saw that the horses were winged and were all pulling the cart up from the mud and into the air.

So for all the things in your life which don’t make sense, or seem to happen for no reason or purpose – all the loss, betrayal, crises, heartbreak, broken dreams… remember it’s not the final story. The final story you’ll see in heaven.

Until then, know that God has promised that He will work all things in your life for good – and remember the cart and the winged horses.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Roman’s 8:28

Bring your disappointments, frustrations, heartbreaks or broken dreams to the Lord and give thanks that He works them out for your good.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

On Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the high priest of Israel enters the holy of holies with the blood of the sacrifice. He then sprinkles the blood on the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant, as he makes atonement for the people.

Isaiah 52 and 53 prophesy of the coming Messiah. In those chapters, it’s revealed that Messiah will suffer for the sins of His people, and will bear their punishment, their sorrows, their guilt, and their judgment.

But it also says this, “He shall sprinkle many nations.” What does that mean? The Hebrew word for sprinkle in Isaiah 52 is nazah. It’s the same word used for what the high priest does on the Day of Atonement inside the Holy of Holies.

What does that mean? It means that if you’re born again, Jesus has not only saved you – He’s sprinkled you – just as the high priest sprinkled the mercy seat – so that your life, too, would become a most holy vessel.

Ponder that. And start treating your life accordingly – as a most holy vessel.

…and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 3:21

Live in a manner worthy of the fact that you are made to be God’s holy vessel – act accordingly.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
