Are You Happy, Here?
Every year, at housing re-certification time, the question is asked: “Are you happy living here?”
I’m thankful to God for housing. Wouldn’t want to be homeless.
God’s Word in The Holy Scriptures tells us who believe in Him that the whole world lies in wickedness and the days are evil. [1 John 5:19; Ephesians 5:16 ESV Study Bible.].
Here’s An Epiphany for US – the United States of America
Now, about some other things . . . things like
The Belief in Unbelief;
The belief that we can do whatever the hell we want . . . apart from True God and His Word
And then, in the desperation of their hearts disconnected from The Living God
They run to the theory of evolution for something to fill the void of not knowing their Maker.
The theory of evolution is beyond the pale of credulity in its excruciating explicity trying in vain to explain how dead and dumb matter created life and soul and spirit and mind and insects and animals and birds and human beings and the earth and all the planets and the sun and the solar system and all the galaxies of all the other stars and solar systems in the Infinite and Eternal Universe and Time and Eternity and the Holy Spirit and the Holy Scriptures and the Son of God the Savior of all men – particularly believers in the gospel of Christ and His resurrection and the power of His Indestructible Life and the great tribulation and the Second Coming and the regeneration of Heaven and Earth – and of eternal damnation for the unbelievers.
Hey, wait a minute!
Evolution doesn’t explain anything about those Bible things.
Oh . . . so evolution falls short of believing in the power of The Living God to provide eternal life to God’s children?
Yes, evolution does fall short.
And evolution cannot even explain where matter originally came from – the fundamental basis of their theory?
Yes, they cannot even explain matter’s source.
Well then, there is something seriously the matter with that godless theory of evolution.
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” -Hebrews 11:1-3 ESV Study Bible.
As I was reading the definition of the word epiphany in Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary -Eleventh Edition, I saw that January 6th is “observed as a church festival in commemoration of the coming of the Magi as the first manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles or in the Eastern Church in commemoration of the baptism of Christ . . .” and then recalled that the events in Washington DC of this year –2021 — happened on January 6th, also. And I wondered if they chose that particular date on purpose – or, did God choose that date to remind The United States of America of His wrath to come. And the numerical date of 9/11 when the United States was attacked on September 11, 2001.
“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, ‘You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” -Matthew 3:7 ESV Study Bible.
Does legalizing abortion also raise the wrath of God upon a nation?
Does writing laws empowering the rich to pollute and to destroy the earth also invite the wrath of Almighty God?
The true God instituted government; but unbelieving man and his politics works against government to the detriment of all living things on God’s Earth.
Is it God’s will for government workers to serve the corporate state in its devotion to Money rather than the government; to allow the government’s treasury to be in deep debt while the corporations are in humongous and obscene wealth? Is it right for lawmakers to write corporate laws allowing some of the very rich corporations to pay little or no taxes? How does enriching the corporations help the poor? How does hoarding the wealth of God’s Earth by a very few do righteousness and equity and justice for all? Are the rulers of the world system engendering peace on earth by the laws they write?
We were warned long ago that the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil; and yet we disregarded His Word and went ahead and loved money and power and the world that lies in wickedness; and now all kinds of evil are breaking out all over the earth because of our unbelief and disobedience and disregard of True God.
“Teach and urge these things. If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain. Now there is great gain in godliness with contentment, for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of it. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wondered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
“But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, which he will display at the proper time – he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
“As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
“O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called “knowledge,” for by professing it some have swerved from the faith.
“Grace be with you.” -1 Timothy 6:2b-21. ESV Study Bible.
“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch. But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the LORD of hosts.” -Malachi 4:1-3. ESV Study Bible.
“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.” -Proverbs 18:10. ESV Study Bible.
Did you ever notice that James Cagney’s initials are the same as The Son of God,
Jesus Christ the Lord? I’m not saying that James Cagney is Jesus Christ – only that their initials are the same.

“His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.” -2 Peter 1:3, 4. ESV Study Bible.
