Gooooooood Morninnnnnnnnnnng

What choice will you make?

I’m recalling a conversation I had with someone a few years ago whom I cared very much for. A song came on, it was an oldie.  I had heard it before but never quite knew the full meaning of the lyrical words; it was before my time but none the less,  it was a really popular song which is still heard occasionally til this day. It was by Donna Summer and it was called “McArthur Park”; it was during this conversation that it was explained to me in great detail, the meaning and the words.

To sum it up, “It’s clearly about a love affair ending, and the person singing it is using the cake and the rain as a metaphor for that”, so said the man who wrote the song in an interview with a magazine. A friend of an associate who worked with the writer later told others; “Jim was in love with a girl who left him. Months later, he heard she was getting married – in the park. Broken-hearted, he went to the wedding and, not wanting to be seen, hid in a gardener’s shed. As the open-air ceremony was taking place it started to pour with rain and the rain running down the shed window made the cake look as if it was melting.”

It’s all quite interesting and touchingly sad. As the memory of this conversation comes to me I must admit I seldom listen to secular music anymore and this is by choice. For one thing,  99.9% of it doesn’t sound good and carries demonic influences. Second to that, I choose instead to honor the Lord by listening to and admiring good music with content that the Lord would approve of, Christian God glorifying music.

The main point that I wish to share in analogy and comparison… is that Christ is the estranged Lover, in the shed; watching His precious Beloved given over to another! The celebratory cake melting in the rain represents the fleeting opportunity He has provided for us to seek Him out in truthfulness, in repentance and in humility. The sadness that Christ suffers is for those whom He seeks to save, that He perished for (*Colossians 2:13-14)  and for those Who will become Eternally Betrothed to Death unless they reunite to Him. Satan is eager to gather his spoils and as sure as a hand has five fingers, a face has two eyes and body has one brain…Satan is real, his demons are at work in everything that isn’t of God and all of it is being used against you! Unless of course you are with Jesus, then those things are not held against you…(*2 Cor. 5:17-19)

Don’t let your recipe fade into oblivion, your cake make you sick or let the sun go down on your lack of decision. To hear of Christ’s Salvation and not choose to follow is playing Russian roulette with eternal death. You may not get another chance to make it right! So for heavens sake…get Jesus in the Bake!…Need More ingredients???

The bread of Life, Good fruit, the Living Water, Salt of the Earth!

1 Cross  –  2 Sinners – 3 Nails – 4 Given

Heavenly Father, I choose you this day and treat every day as a new opportunity to stay right in your sight. Father, I ask and seek you in all areas, please remove from me anything that would hinder your will and truth from being evident in my life. Replace all of my ingredients with yours; add what you will, remove what you will and help me to rise to the level of acceptability that you see fit. When I share of myself with others, let that which they walk away with be food for thought, health to their bones and truth served with love. I pray that you advance me beyond that which you already have with strength, discernment, humility and courage to face every opportunity to serve you faithfully! Keep my garment spotless that I might stand in your presence and sit at the table that you have prepared for me! I ask this in the name of my Lord and Savior, Yeshua Jesus AMEN!

  • Jesus DESCRIBES hell as an awful place of fiery torment.
  • Jesus DESCRIBES hell as a place from which no one can escape.
  • Jesus DESCRIBES hell as a place where longings can never be satisfied
  • Jesus DESCRIBES the rich man in hell as more serious about evangelism than he ever was on earth.
* Colossians 2:13-14
 13And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 14Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
* 2 Corinthians 5:17-19
 17Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

Hell was created for Satan becuase of his abominations
(Ez 28.14–19)
14 “You were the anointed cherub who covers; 
I established you; 
You were on the holy mountain of God; 
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones. 
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, 
Till iniquity was found in you. 
16 “By the abundance of your trading 
You became filled with violence within, 
And you sinned; 
Therefore I cast you as a profane thing 
Out of the mountain of God; 
And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, 
From the midst of the fiery stones. 
17 “Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; 
You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; 
I cast you to the ground, 
I laid you before kings, 
That they might gaze at you. 
18 “You defiled your sanctuaries 
By the multitude of your iniquities, 
By the iniquity of your trading; 
Therefore I brought fire from your midst; 
It devoured you, 
And I turned you to ashes upon the earth 
In the sight of all who saw you. 
19 All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you; 
You have become a horror, 
And shall be no more forever.” 

Rev. 20: Describes the judgment of the unsaved. They’ll be judged according to the record of their life.  NOTE:  There’s no hint of another opportunity to accept the Lord there.

Rev. 20:11-15 King James Version (KJV)
 11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
 12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
 13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
 14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
 15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

2 Corinthians 5:10
 10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

 Hebrews 9:27. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement…” –

John 7:24.“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.”

Romans 12
1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
 3For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
 4For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
 5So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
 6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
 7Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
 8Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
 9Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
 10Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
 11Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
 12Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
 13Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
 14Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
 15Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
 16Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
 17Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
 18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
