The Kingdom of Broken Crosses

14 Sep

The Kingdom of Broken Crosses…

Hitler promised to usher in a thousand year kingdom of glory for the Aryan people. Stalin promised a worker’s paradise on earth. Mao, likewise, promised China a people’s paradise. Around 6 million Jews perished under Hitler; 9 million of other nationalities are similarly murdered by the Nazis.

Soviet Communism has taken 35 to 45 million lives. And Chinese Communism is responsible for the death of 35 to 64 million people. Why is it that instead of producing paradise, they produced hell?

The answer is simple. What links them all together is that they each made the leader, the party, and the state, their god. When you glorify yourself and deny God… the end of godlessness is death.

If God is not the center of what you’re doing, then what you’re doing is empty. Jesus, on the other hand, never promises His people a paradise without a cross.

Jesus said, “‘If anyone would follow me, let him deny himself, pick up his cross, and follow Me.'” It doesn’t appear glorious, but do it His way. Turn down the way of the world. We have Yeshua.

Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:23-24

All the more put God in the center of everything you do and ponder today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
