Where is My Foundation!?!

This is a very good question to ask yourself and do I even have a foundation in anything or anyone? A foundation, like the foundation of a house or a building is something which allows something to be built upon hard ground, something solid or very strong. Basically a foundation supports whatever is built upon it or established by it. Foundation: the lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level or an underlying basis or principle for something. These are the meanings for the word foundation, so what does the Bible (Book of Instruction Before Leaving Earth) have to say about a foundation?

As the Bible and the Lord Jesus explains: “a foolish man built his house upon the sand.” In this instance, the sand represents the foundation upon which this man built his house and the house represents his faith. “When the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” The house of this man or faith was built upon something which was not solid, firm or planted deep into anything. When the Storms of Life, Trials and Tribulations came upon him and his house, his faith crumbled because there was nothing firm or solid planted beneath his faith. Okay so this is the foolish or the Lukewarm believers, is this all the Bible says?

The Bible says this as well: “a wise man, which built his house upon the rock: when the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; it fell not: for it was founded upon the rock.” This house or faith was solid, firm and protected. Not only was this man’s faith in the right place, his foundation supported his faith. So when the Storms of Life, Trials and Tribulations came upon him and his house. He and his house or faith withstood the storms and so forth. Where Is Your Foundation?

When Times of Trouble Happen, What is Your Mindset?

As we have just learned, the Bible talks very plainly about having a foundation and of faith. Why is Faith So Important, because the Bible talks about it in more ways than one! This passage of the two men and their houses is just one example of having faith and dealing with trials, tribulations and the storms of life. If you stop and think about it, this passage almost sounds like many parts of our World right now; what people are doing and thinking as well. The Word of Father God is Awesome, this book the Bible is not a joke and we all can stand firm upon it!

The time is now to say This World, Let It Go!! As each new day passes, it is becoming clear this world has an end and it is very quickly approaching! If you can’t see this or haven’t noticed, maybe it is time Let Go of some things and Look Up, For Your Redemption Draws Nigh. All of these warning, signs, fires, floods, strange weather and storms, earthquakes, volcanic activity and animal die-off are meant to get your attention from off of this world! The time has come to pay attention, change your mindset and stand firm. If you will not, when disasters strikes, you will crumble and be swept away!! A house, a car, money, clothes, food, none of this stuff matters in a disaster, what matters is that you survived and made it through it. This is the point, you have been given another chance to realize; you need to put your trust in something firm.

Other people may not have made it through the storm, but you did and still have a purpose; this is why you are still here. If not, you would not have made it through the storm or disaster. This is when you have to ask yourself, the Lord Jesus spared me, what does He need or want of me? Don’t miss this opportunity; this is a God Send and a Very Precious Moment! When these moments come, What Are You Going to Do With Them? Curse Father God or Stand Firm in Him?

Make it Plain, Lean on Jesus!

Nothing Manmade Can Stand the Test of Time!!

When All Hope Is Lost, Does Your Foundation Crumble?

It really amazes me how so many people live; their trust is in things that don’t matter or in things which will fail them each and every time. Like having plenty of money, Let’s Talk About Money explain why this is a bad idea. Having houses or several homes, retirement funds, investments, famous people of the past and present, or anything else other than what counts and truly has the Power they need and are looking for!! People are readily willing to put their faith and trust into worldly things or things they can feel, see and touch physically. "We" Walk By Faith, Not By Sight explains why this is dangerous and leads down the path of destruction.

When you see people on the news or any disaster coverage program, they are so distraught over their stuff; they didn’t take time to mention how grateful they are to be alive!?! The things and stuff can be replaced; rebuilt or refashioned your life however, once it’s gone that’s it, there’s no coming back! Why are they so distraught, their stuff was their world, their foundation upon which they stood or their meaning for them in this life. Just as the Bible said: “when the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” They had nothing firm upon which they had both for their foundation and their faith.

Are you already asking yourself, where can I put my Trust, where can I stand upon something Firm and be planted upon Solid Ground? Who or What is the Rock the Wise man built his house Upon?

The World Is Crumbling, Are You Going With It?

Where Your Faith Is, So Is Your Foundation!!

Are we already beginning to establish a correlation here or is this just something else to read and pass some time? In either case, for those who dare say or believe (yes have faith) in there is “No God,” then when disaster strikes or a dilemma takes place. They have no protection to aid them in their faith, remember there is “No God” and things just happen. When in reality, there is a God, His name is Elohim, Jehovah, the I Am that I Am and all can stand firm upon Him. Even those who dare say there is “No God,” because there is. Just ask yourself, does the wind exist? Are you sure, you can’t see it or touch it, contain it or capture it in your hands, so are you certain? The Wind is Invisible, can fill any space, take up or move any form (solid, liquid or gas), move about easily or cause destruction and chaos, and we know it exists, is real and can be tangible one way or another, right?

So Father God Jehovah is a spirit, He is invisible and yet His works are visible. Could the wind actually prove He is real and does exist? How could two things which are not seen correlate? There are many examples which can be used to prove Father God exists; there is too much order to how this Universe functions to say there is “No God” just to do and life the way “I” want. Uh Oh, are back to the “I” Way again? The “I” Way where we are in control, do things our way and with our natural strength? Yup, that’s the “I” Way or the “My Way or the Highway,” however you say it, it’s the same road and leads to the path of destruction; just as the Bible talks about.

Now back to the order of the Universe, the sun rises and the sun sets each day, the moon reflects the sunlight; there are countless stars in the Universe, as the Bible says: “the Lord God has established the firmament and given each and every star a name.” To dare say there is “No God,” in times of trouble, there is nothing supporting you. The same goes for the worship of false gods, they have no power; they were created by the hands of man, so where would they get there power. From us, the one who created them? How, We Have No Power Ourselves!?! Do You Now See How Foolish This Is, To Say There Is “No God” and To Worship Manmade Created Idols!?! Fruitless, Just Fruitless, even with all of the craziness going on, no one seem to even notice Father God is clearly involved. Do You See the "Signs" of the Times? Will You Wake Up!!

Pass the Final Test, Keep Your Focus on Jesus Christ!!!

Is This World Your Hope, Faith and Trust?

The World is Crumbling, Are You Going to Go With It?!

This is why it is fast becoming time to Let This World Go! The Earthquakes, Disasters and Global Traumas are only going to increase!! If you are unwilling to let go as more of this world collapses and it’s so called stability crumbles, you will go with it because you refused to Let Go when you had the chance or heard someone mention this! The Signs are all around you, from the Earthquakes which flattened major cities in an instant. In the Words of the survivors, “It Looked Like a Scene From an End Times Movie but a Very Real Reality!” Do you want to face this reality for yourselves still holding on to the things of this World? Let Go of selfish Pride, Self-Ego and Self-Centeredness or the “I” Way of doing things.

The Lord Jesus is Merciful and Extremely Gracious; He is still sending warning, after warning, after warning. If it where me, I would already gave up on Humanity, returned for those who ready and said, “Let the End Times Games Begin!” I guess it’s a good thing I am not the Lord Jesus, I don’t have His kind of Patience, Love or Longsuffering. Don’t get me wrong, I do have great patience and love, this is why the Lord Jesus uses me to write for Him. Only He can handle the Responsibilities of Being the Lord Jesus because He is the Lord Jesus and He loves all of Creation, just not the Sin of Humanity, which is why He died for us!

This above all is Why We Need Jesus! If our faith, strength and our foundation is in Him, when disasters strike, we are able to stand up after them and help others! The Lord Jesus is a solid, firm, unbreakable foundation to stand upon! Having this foundation give us strength because we know He is there and we can count on Him! For those who do not have Him or know Him, when something happens, they crumble with it. They had so support, nothing firm to stand upon, when the world crumbles and falls to pieces, they will go with the world. Is this the Future you want to experience, is this the promise you really want or do you want something which will last and be Very Good for you for all Eternity?

"Thou Shall Have No Other gods Before Me!"

Stand Firm on the Rock, The Lord Jesus!

This World Will Let You Down and Take You With It!!!

Where Your Heart Is, So Is Your Treasure!

If you say in your heart there is “No God,” then you treasure this world and the things of it. If you worship, create or establish any idols or false gods, then you treasure this world and the things of it. If you put money, video games, people, pleasures, lusts, corruption, wars, killing, rape, or anything of this world before the Lord Jesus, your treasures are still of this World. This is probably as far as you came; you got to this point and stopped reading. “He Offended Me, I am Mad, He’s Talking About My Life and the Way I Choose to Live It!!” Okay, how do you think the Lord Jesus Feels, dealing with more than 7.4 Billion People if they all have the same attitude!?!

As we mentioned earlier, if you faith and trust is in this world, when more of it crumbles and it will, many will go with it when it does. The Question is Where is Your Heart? Do you Treasure this world and the things of it more than anything else? There is still time to make changes, to prepare your heart to meet the Lord Jesus when He comes, this must be done before He comes. Don’t miss this opportunity, the World is already crumbling and people’s lives are already being changed by it.

The Time is Now to Come to The Lord Jesus!

Don't Wait, The Lord is Ready to Receive You, Just As You Are! He Can Fix You and Repair all of the Damage the World Has Done!

Establish Your Foundation in the Lord Jesus!!

The time to come to the Lord Jesus is now, time is so short; the Israeli New Year is just weeks away now! It’s about to be the Fall Season of 2016 and this year coming up is going to be 5777!!! If you needed another sign, you just got it, notice the 3 sevens!!! The excitement is building, for Our Lord and Savior is Coming and Will Be Here Soon, the Year 5777, Jesus is Coming So Very Soon!! You need to realize, the Lord Jesus is coming for His Bride, people who have made their hearts ready, are looking and watching for His return and letting people know He is Coming! His Appearance in the Clouds is about to take place and it will not be like how the movies have depicted it, this will be very quick! How fast, read Behold, The Lord Jesus Comes Quickly!”

Do you want to have your heart ready before the Lord Jesus comes, to be able to meet Him in the Clouds when He shows up? To know what true Love is, to Have True Peace, to Experience Joy, then the time to come to the Lord Jesus is now. Let’s pray: Father, I know my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life towards you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You Lord Jesus and to do Your Will Lord, for the rest of my life. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Your name has been written into the Lamb’s Book of Life and you will make Heaven your Home! You will be ready to meet the Lord Jesus when He comes, Live for Him and bring others to Him while there is still time to do so! See You in the Air when He Comes!!

A Relationship With the Lord Jesus!?!

A Foundation in the Lord Jesus Will Not Crumble in the Times of Troubles?

Here is the entire passage from the Bible as the Lord Jesus has spoken it: “Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”

The rock in this passage represents the Lord Jesus, the sand represents the world and the storm represents “This Life.” We must have our foundation upon the Rock, the Lord Jesus; this is the whole point of this HubPage and This World, Let It Go!! The Time is Now or Do you want to be one of the Foolish as the Lord Jesus just talked about in this passage? The Time to Be On Fire for The Lord Jesus is Now! It is an amazing feeling when the Holy Spirit takes over and you are riding the waves with the Lord Jesus. Being on the Straight and Narrow path is more than worth it. Versus the broad and wide path, which leads to destruction, much like the destruction of the house on the sand, are you getting the point now?

There Are Christians in the Middle East, Even With the Movement to Stop Them!!

The World of the Tribulation Period?

No Matter What You Are Going Through, You Can Make It Through With the Lord Jesus!!

The time is now not to be like the Lukewarm, the Foolish or the Cold. It has been Time to Be On Fire for The Lord Jesus! For those who are Lukewarm, the Foolish or the Cold, Come Back to Your First Love and don’t wait! The Lord Jesus will leave you behind when He comes, so Be On Fire for Him Now or you will have no choice but to go through The Tribulation Period. Where there you will cry just as the Bible said the Foolish will say: “Lord, Lord Let Us In!!” Is this what you want to say, to see the horrors of The Tribulation Period with your own eyes, to see just how fast this world changed and all of the evil, vile and unnatural things walking the Earth?

This is why "We" Walk By Faith, Not By Sight. The Lord Jesus cares for you and all of His creation; even He will not wait forever before He moves. All evidence pointing to Father God is Clearly About to Make a Major, Mighty Move! It is best to be ready beforehand, so you will not miss the Rapture of the Bride and be with the Lord Jesus when He comes.

However, if you miss the Rapture and find yourself Left behind, the Lord Jesus will not utterly forsake you. This is when you will have to stand on your faith in Him in a very different world! A World which will kill you because you will not deny Him, a World which will be under the ruler-ship of the devil himself; where the antichrist will come onto the scene and dominate this new world. Order out of Chaos, this the New World Order of The Tribulation Period and this is about to unfold very soon. If you don’t have the Lord Jesus as your foundation, being Lukewarm, Foolish or Cold, you will crumble in your faith, take the mark of the beast and worship your adversary, the devil in the flesh. This soon reality doesn’t have to be your reality, you can escape this, just have your heart and life ready to meet the Lord Jesus when He comes. Wake Up and Be Bold as We Ought to Be for the Lord Jesus Now; this is Being On Fire Him and Doing His Will!! All the Lord Jesus Wants, is for Us to Be Ready and Watching for His Soon Appearance in the Clouds and to Go With Him When He comes! He doesn’t want anyone Called According to His Purpose, to Have to Go Through The Tribulation Period.

Trust in the Lord Jesus!!

Hello HubPages Community, I have some exciting News!! I should have Shared this Two Days Ago!!! Please Welcome Matthew to the Body of Christ, he gave His Life to Christ on Monday 10/16/2016 while we were on the Job! All Glory, Praise and Honor onto Father God El Shaddai, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit!!

The Meaning of Samuel in Hebrew means “Asked of God.” The meaning of Matthew in Hebrew means “Gift of God.” Matthew and I were just having a conversation about the goings on in the world and admitted he was concerned. This world has no hope; the signs and warning are very clear! Matthew knew the Bible so he was aware of the biblical significance.

It was at this moment when he heard the call and the beckoning of the Holy Spirit and we prayed together. This is what it is all about to the Glory, Praise and the Blessing of El Shaddai Father God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit! Only King Jesus can orchestrate the meeting of two people with names from the Bible and encounter the Lord Jesus Christ at the same time. Take a moment to Welcome Matthew into the Family of Believers, the Body of Christ and the Bride!!

Take Care and Be Blessed Beloved!!
