IN THE LIGHT OF GOD'S UNDERSTANDING PERFECT WISDOM MAY BE KNOWN! SPECIAL SUMMER -2015- EDTION




WHO CAN EXPLAIN THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD IN THE FACE OF ABJECT DEPRAVITY AND LOSS? WHEN, OFTEN THE WILL OF GOD BRINGS US GREAT LOSS, SORROW, AND SEEMINGLY ENDLESS TEARS!


By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015



"In these days we reflect on one of the previous century's terrible genocide of a people who because of their lifestyle, their language, their solemn faith, and racial makeup. Became the victims, the fuel, and Hellish reason of a Satanic Movement which tried to erase them from the face of Earth. As it had tried to do so dating back throughout the history of mankind itself, but always falling short of its dark and twisted intentions. In these days men, women, and children will mourn and carry a most heavy yoke in their hearts. One in which at times may ask why, and at others, solemnly in silence often offer up prayers to the God that has never forgotten nor forsaken them.

Genocide is not always an easy subject to begin any sermon, especially when we speak of a people whose history has been one of sorrow, great loss, and persecution. If you haven't heard of the Pogroms of the late 1800's where Jewish people were the center of a frenzy of hatred and seemingly often uncontrollable oppressive attacks. And this was a way of life for hundreds of years where Jews were relegated to living apart and segregated into their own cities. Which thankfully, often brought them some refuge. Because, the powers that be allowed them to make their own decisions and live amongst themselves in semi-calm conditions.

But, never without a price.  And even yet, when we look at the horrible genocides on the African Continent, where millions have been slaughtered. Because, of religious strife and social and cultural indifference. Not unlike those that have taken place in the European Continent. Historically, throughout the world  genocides, holocausts, mass murders, all have shown humanity how frail and weak we can be. When it seems the gates are thrown open and the  power of Hell itself is unleashed against us without, it seems, blemish in its perfect storm nightmarish rendition.

Yet, in the eyes of Almighty God. We all are his children despite our shortcomings, despite  our failings, despite our imputed racial and ethnic makeup. In the eyes of God we belong. He does  not turn us away, His Son gave his life so that all may have real Life and that abundantly. God's Son Jesus/ Yeshua Ha-Mashiach told us, 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Narrow is the way that leads to Eternal Life but, broad is the way that leads to perdition. There are countless roads, yet, one single narrow way which is always open, filled with blessings, and leads us to that One and only Gate.

Restless, free wheeling rebels don't have the time to articulate having to circumvent one seemingly drab single road. After a while, to them it gets boring and they have to take a detour. Repose themselves, sit down and relax a while, enjoy the native beauty of the country side.  Have you ever met someone who at first glance seems calm, down to earth, often even wise? Then as time progresses they seem to lose focus, they get restless, indifferent, and then they go off half cocked. Leaving you to you to wonder, what brought that on? These are the two dichotomies, on the one hand there is that spirit of confusion, restlessness, and seemingly unworkable pain.

But, there is one sliver of hope, one ray of light, where the inability to understand tragedies, catastrophes, and monumental culture shocks. Completely turns us around, gives us the strength to take that breath of life we've been longing for, take that next step powerlessly, yet trustingly, outside of our broken will. Jesus said I came not to judge the world but, to bring life and that abundantly. He came that the blind may see beyond the pain, the loss, the oppression of this world. He came so that the lame may walk in the light of His guiding Spirit, and that the hungry may have the miracle of His Word and Body.

In them each and every day, as a solid foundation for life.  Today, when we look back, maybe, we can all share in one underlying miracle. From all of those horrible Genocides, Holocausts, and mass killings of innocent people.  For no other reason than that, somewhere in the dark and depraved hearts of those who masterminded and led others to carry out those heinous, seemingly inconceivable, and on the other hand incomprehensible acts of uncontrollable demonic bloodlust. God's -perfect- will  may be felt, known, and perhaps understood. Even when, under that dark cloud of Calvary, a voice could still be heard crying out, 'It is finished'!" JRH-2015 NDMH
