Looking in the Dark for Something That Is Not There!

Mankind is searching for a black cat, in a dark room, with black painted walls, with a broken flash light with out batteries and the black cat does not even exist. This expedition is the ultimate tragic quest of vanity and futility. Generation upon generation has come up empty - as history can attest to in this never ending search for answers and meaning (Eccl, Isa 59:8-9).

Apart from Almighty God, how will lost mankind ever find meaning and the answers to life's mysteries? My friend, when one rejects Almighty God’s Word of truth, honestly, what hope does one have in this savage world? How tragic will it be for those in the end when absolute reality must be honored by all those who absolutely despise and reject it for all eternity (Phil 2:10-11, 2 Thess. 2:9-12, Jude 1:8, Rev 21:27).

When humanity rejects Almighty God’s Holy Spirit, His witness of Creation’s glories, His infallible Word and the witness of man’s own conscious, the tragic result is a delusion vanity and absolute ruin (Romans 1:18-32, Matt 25:41, Rev 20:10-15).

Man is all that Almighty God will keep when all is said and done.

No one knows this more than King Solomon of old. King Solomon possessed it all: wisdom, brilliance, discernment, authority, prestige, riches/ wealth, property/ possessions, power, fame, women and glory. Amazingly, as he was reflecting on his life in his last days, he made this very sobering and tragic statement: “Vanity of vanities… all is vanity”

Man is all that Almighty God will keep when all is said and done. The vast glorious creation of the celestial heavens (sky and space) and the wonders here on planet earth and its nature laws of science will all be removed and destroyed ( 2 Peter 3:7,10) for a New Heavens and Earth that is without corruption and ruin (Isa 65:17, 1 Peter1:4, Rev 21:1 -27).

Almighty God offers reality (truth) and hope to all that call upon him.

Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else (Isa 45:22).

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (John 14:6).

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life (John 8:12).

The endless quest in vanity and its futile answers cease when one turns to Almighty God and His saving grace that is found only in the Person of His dear Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? He alone can set you free from the darkness of this godless world system (John 8:32, 36). He has all the answers and has all the solutions you will ever need. He offers you a life of purpose and a heavenly calling that will last for ever (2 Cor. 5:17-21, Thess. 1:9). Won’t you place your trust in Him today? You will never be the same!

The Kingdom of God is at Hand!
