1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
(Psalm 53:1, King James Version)
Psalm 53 could come right out of the pages of todays' newspapers. Has there ever been a time when man was more prone to disbelief that there even is a God? Man does not want God, because he does not want to answer to anyone but himself; He does not want a God to rule over him!
Nevertheless, what a person does or does not want will not change the reality of what is true. Sadly, in their foolishness, lack of belief in God leaves people without support when everything around them begins to cave in. And, cave in, it will!
Because of the fallen world in which we live, no person ever has the privilege of living their entire life without sadness, grief, despair, illness, and untold miseries that come their way at the most inopportune times. How does the world cope at such times? There are plenty of ways, especially in our "advanced" societies to escape from the troubles of life, but how sad when escaping is the only answer people have to their difficulties.
Such is the life of the fool!
However, it does not need to be that way. In His Word God reveals Himself to us, including His purpose in creating this world. In spite of Satan's attempt to abolish mankind from the face of the earth, God did not allow His creation to suffer defeat, but provided a way to overcome the horrors of eternal death.
It is true, that God's children still suffer the agonies of this world, but rather than seeking to escape from the horrors of life, they find peace and consolation in the Lord Jesus Christ. Death is not eternal separation, but rather, the death of believers is an advent into God's greater Kingdom. Christian loved ones who have gone before will be waiting with outstretched arms to receive us and introduce us to God's Kingdom of Light.
But, even before that, when ushered into Heaven, we will come face to face with our Lord Jesus Christ. The love that compelled Him to come to this earth, suffer the pain and rejection of His own people, and then suffer a horrible death at their hands, just to win a people for Himself, is more than we can ever hope to comprehend. Imagine the joy of feeling His hand in ours as we enter the gates of Heaven! May the Lord hasten the day.
Yes, indeed, the fool hath said in his heart, There is no God! I pray that you are not numbered among the fools of this world!
God Bless You,
