Will This Truly Be A “New” Year Or the Same Old?

Each year, at this specific point and time, we celebrate a “New” year coming in, but truthfully nothing becomes new except the numerical date. Wow! Nothing “Really” ever changes except the numerical number of the year. I was born in 1940 and since that time “Racism” has “Always” been in existence throughout this world. Man’s inhumanity towards their fellowman has “Always” been in existence since this world began. Many express their belief in God but they do not except His “Commandment” that He gave to “Love” one another. Humans needs to stop playing “Make Believe” ballroom and start displaying the “Reality” of what they are “Claiming” to be. Those that are “Professing” to be Christians should be in the forefront of, speaking loudly and clearly against the “Racism” going on throughout our country and has been going on since this country was created. How can a country which largely claims to be a “Christian” country be filled with so much “Hatred?

Where is the “Love” that was “Commanded” by God to be forthcoming from “All” that are professing to be “Christians” throughout the land. Where is it? Where is it? Was it ever in existence? I do not think so, for if it was truly in existence throughout this country how could “Slavery” have ever been in existence throughout this country? How could a song with such words as “My country tis of thee, sweet land of ‘Liberty’” ever been sung throughout this land where “liberty & justice” was not a reality for so many of those in this country? Maybe it was because my forefather’s were not looked upon as being human beings. But even that could not have been the reason for they treated their animals better than they treated my forefathers. Wow!

Truthfully, man’s inhumanity towards his fellowman has been going on since this world began, therefore in my heart I do not believe that it will ever end. “Racial Injustice” will “always” be in existence throughout the land until the world ends unless a “serious” heart transplant occurs throughout it. Truthfully, due to what we see going on throughout the world, I do believe in my heart that time is winding down. We are seeing the end winding down before our very eyes. Wow! Man’s inhumanity towards his fellowman is not going to get better, it’s going to become much worse. I do believe in my heart that the signs of the ending of the world are falling all around us. 2022 is most definitely going to be a “wake up” year for things are going to get much worse, making many to understand more clearly what’s really going on. Throughout Scripture we find three admonitions given to us about the “Lord’s Return” which are 1.Watch faithfully, 2.Work diligently, 3.Wait peacefully. 1.We are to watch. The Lord said repeatedly that we are to watch for His coming because we do not know the day or hour of His return.(Matt.24:42; 25:13). In Luke 21:36 Jesus gave this specific instruction: “Watch, therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

Truthfully, I do believe in my heart that this “Corona Virus” that is going on throughout the world, is a sign that should most definitely not be ignored. “Wake Up!” “Wake Up!” Wake Up!” Do you feel that it’s going to get worse in 2022? Fasten your seat belts for I do believe that things are going to get worse in this world. I hope and pray that I’m wrong but I do feel that things are going to continue to spiral downhill on this earth. Race relations are going to get worse and that is most definitely strange in a country that has so many churches existing within it. Wow! Man’s inhumanity towards his fellowman is going to grow worse. To that I must ask “where is the love” that was commanded from GOD for us to give to each other? Where is it? Was it ever in existence throughout our land? If so, what caused it to disappear? Where did the “love” go?

Anyway, I just want to say that I wish “all” of you “Happy New Year!” May God please be patient with us and hopefully His patience will give us time to start being more loving towards one another. Let us “never” forget that apart from Jesus, there is no peace-not within a human heart, and not among human beings or nations. Being that the signs of Jesus’ return are falling all around us we had better fasten our seat belts as to what 2022 is going to be like. Here are some questions that we should be most concerned about which are: 1)When the Lord comes will He find you among those who love Him? 2) When the Lord comes will He find you eager to see Him? Give some “real” serious thoughts to those two questions.

I do believe within my heart that time as we know it is winding down. Last, but most definitely not least, I want to congratulate my youngest son William Howard for the 24 years that he spent serving us on the city of Newburgh’s Fire Department. He now has retired and I thank God for keeping him safe throughout those 24 years. “Happy New Year” to you all. Peace!

This is “Lillie’s Point of View” and I’m just having my say!
