How Cute! 

Q: Why does cuteness exist?

While going to University, the professors told us that an infant’s appeal (cuteness) allows parents to feel an emotional attraction to the infant there by, caring for it. All this is due to evolution guaranteeing the survival of our species.

I can understand that cuteness helps an individual make it in this hostile world, however, is evolution responsible? Evolution – this mix of accidents that all spontaneously occurred at just the right time under just the right circumstances? Or does cuteness come from God the creator who designed it with a purpose?

Is cuteness something that transcends survival? Does God like cuteness? Did God create cuteness because He likes it and we need all the help we can get surviving a world of selfish humans? Is cuteness from God?

A:

Genesis 1:27 God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them.

I’m just asking.

Deuteronomy 4:32 Ask questions. Find out what has been going on all these years before you were born. From the day God created man and woman on this Earth, and from the horizon in the east to the horizon in the west-as far back as you can imagine and as far away as you can imagine-has as great a thing as this ever happened? Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? MSG.

 

 

Hyper Vigilance For People

Something positive came from a kidnapping!  A teen who was kidnaped in Guatemala City now has a “hyper vigilance for people” concerning their safety.  Read more about Bethani Thomas on the International Mission Board website.

Genesis 50:20 As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.

Matthew 7:17 So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit.  18 A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit.

They Hate Us

Q: Why do the fallen angels deceive humans? 

SATAN SAYS

A: Simple, they hate us. They hate our guts!  The fallen angels (fallen sons of God) hate every human (Adamite; son of Adam; Adam means “a man”) who has ever lived.
Q: Why, what did we ever do to them?A: We humans never did anything to hurt their feelings. The fallen angels hate us because we can be forgiven but they are not. Their first evil thoughts condemned them to eternity in hell before the LORD created the first human.

Isaiah 14:13 You said to yourself, “I’ll climb to heaven. I’ll set my throne over the stars of God.  I’ll run the assembly of angels that meets on sacred Mount Zaphon (MSG).

They were created first and we were last yet we are first on God’s mind and heart.  “the first will be last and the last will be first” (Luke 13:30; Mark 10:31; Mat 19:30; Mat 20:16).

Satan wanted to be worshiped as God.  Since God is omniscient He knew about this evil thought and violently evicted Satan from his heavenly realm.  The other angels saw this and about one-third (less than half) thought God had judged Satan unfairly and sided with him.  All of the angels knew God intimately from the beginning.  They watched and marveled as the Lord created everything.

Job 38:4-7 Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, who set its measurements, since you know? Or who stretched the line on it? On what were its bases sunk? or who laid its cornerstone, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?

Not one of them are deceived.  The fallen angels can never be forgiven and they know it.  GOD made humans the epitome of creation.

 Genesis 1:26  Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

Q: How come we get special treatment?

A: God is spirit, angles (sons of God) are spirits but we humans are body and spirit.  To God that means something extra special.  I admit that I don’t grasp the importance other than we are unique and were made with both natural and supernatural elements.

Illustrations from The Life of Michael Angelo ...

Satan and his gang were on earth when God created Adam and Eve and he knew that we are  special and that makes him fume!  He wants to be special (and above God) and he deeply desires for us to worship him and his gang banger fallen angels.

God never abandoned Adam and Eve after the fall and He knew that the rest of us would be born disconnected from God, lied to and miss led by these evil ones.  Therefore, he gave us the opportunity to be forgiven through Jesus.  These evil ones will never have a sliver of a chance at forgiveness and will never again be accepted by God nor allowed into the majestic Heavens that they once knew yet the LORD gives us ample opportunity to be forgiven and spend forever in paradise.  Well, this tends to infuriate the evil ones.

Q: Too bad for them. Why don’t they just leave us alone?

A: They are EVIL and the hatred they feel for every human is intense!  Remember, the fallen angels (sons of God) were first and privileged to watch God create the universe but they hate God for judging Satan and putting us ahead of them.

Kind of like in grade school, “I was first in line and he cutted. That’s not fair, I was first!  I hate that kid!  I’m going to make him eat his own boogers.”  It’s like that but we didn’t cut in line, God gave us our position.

Satan and his gang are ANGRY at God and hostile to all creation, especially us Adamites.  We humans have a long history of hatred and cruelty toward our fellow-man to the point of sadistically killing whomever we’ve hated.  Anti-Semites hate the Jews, white supremacists hate black people and the Hutus hate the Tutsis.  The fallen sons of God hate us and we hate us too!

Leviticus 19:17 You must not hate your brother in your heart. You must surely reprove your fellow citizen so that you do not incur sin on account of him.

Therefore, our own hatred is no different from the hatred of the fallen angels who hate us and God.  This hatred has no end and leads to hell.  (I bet those demons hate each other too.)

Q: Since Satan and the fallen angels hate us so much why do Satanists worship them?

A: Humans who worship Satan are 100% deceived.  They have the wool pulled over their eyes and they can’t see.  They actually believe that Satan is the true god of light and YHWH is the evil one. Their way of thinking is completely upside down and backward.

Isaiah 5:20 Those who call evil good and good evil are as good as dead, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter.

Satanists think that worshiping Satan will make them rich and powerful on earth and in hell. Some even believe that Satan will make them “gods”.  It doesn’t occur to them that it’s all a trick. Satan is wearing a mask and he actually hates every human and wants us in hell so we can be tortured and burn in the lake of fire right along with him.

Remember, Satan and his demons hate us.  They hate you and me.  They hate God and everything He created but we humans get a second chance if we take it.

John 3:16 For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

Daily Bread Update 6

Luke 11:3,Give us each day our daily bread.”

I continue to ask God for my daily bread and He continues to give me what I need each day!  Because money is not yet coming in I took out money from retirement funds.  Before I paid any bills, I made a sacrifice by giving God his first 10% (tithe).  That first ten percent belongs to Him not me.  By early afternoon, I received many good things; some items I can sell to make money, a lasagna and more cookies!

Thank you Jesus for doing what you say you’ll do!

Genesis 14:20 And blessed be The High God, who handed your enemies over to you. Abram gave him a tenth of all the recovered plunder (MSG).

Exodus 3:9 Honor GOD with everything you own; give him the first and the best (MSG).

Exodus 34:22 “You must celebrate the Festival of Harvester with the first crop of the wheat harvest, and celebrate the Festival of the Final Harvest at the end of the harvest season (NLT).

Leviticus 3:8 “Begin by being honest. Do honest people rob God? But you rob me day after day. “You ask, ‘How have we robbed you?’ “The tithe and the offering–that’s how (MSG)!

Leviticus 23:10 “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. When you enter the land I am giving you and you harvest its first crops, bring the priest a bundle of grain from the first cutting of your grain harvest (NLT).

Leviticus 27:30 “A tenth of the land’s produce, whether grain from the ground or fruit from the trees, is GOD’s. It is holy to GOD (MSG).
