Nathan, one of my three year old grandsons, loves food. He is a foot taller than most boys his age. Still hungry at the end of a recent family meal, he announced, “I need a bowl of meat!”
Unless you have Vegan convictions you may confer that animal protein is beneficial for physical growth and strength. Spiritual “meat” is also necessary. Easy times make few demands…but when life gets hard… only the strong survive.
When Terrible comes, like the Newtown shootings, we all need meat! Here’s some for today…the twenty murdered children are not dead…they were immediately ushered into the presence of Jesus…safe and at peace! They also have not been transformed into angels.
Angels are not redeemable…those that rebelled with Lucifer are not able to be “saved.” They were not created, “in the image of God,” as mankind is. Angels cannot sing with personal gratitude for the sacrifice of Jesus at the cross. Humans do not become angels!
Be encouraged that children who die are with Jesus…if you submit to Him there will be a heavenly reunion someday soon!
“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” (I Corinthians 10:13/NIV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
