The number ten, by human standards, must represent perfection.  Why do I say that you ask?  Here are a few examples.

Have you ever heard or used the phrase, "On a scale of 1 to 10...." and then proceed to rate the something at the end of said statement?  Sure we all have.
Video games are rated on a one out of ten basis.  Our likes and dislikes are can be put to the same test.  Scoring in Olympic competitions are scored with 10 being the highest.  Here is something we are all guilty of.  Rating on a scale of one to ten (person of opposite sex).  Right now on Spotify i am listening to "Center of It All" by Desperation Band and I give it a perfect 10.  So, there is basis for the number ten being used to represent perfection.  Point is everyone has a different idea of what is or could be considered perfect, it shows our diversity of thought and in some cases (a severe lack of brain power). 
To that end let us look at another set of 'ten'.  This 'ten' reveals humanity as individuals and as a people. That ten is the "Ten Commandments". 
Mankind as a whole, before the giving of the ten commandments, was seriously lacking in moral value.  Their code of conduct was this, whatever was right in their own eyes was good enough for them.  No one else opinion mattered.  Man (men and women) treated each other with little to no regard and this was the first attempt at establishing a moral code within the human race.  Up until the giving of the law to Moses by God, there was no established set of laws, other than what people decided for themselves.  So you can imagine to some extent the chaos on this earth.
These laws were given as a light to be shined on the hearts of everyone.  No one was exempt from them. 

Fast forward several thousands years and we can see the regression mankind has taken in the department of morality.  Every charter, document and legality  in which this nation was initially founded was based upon the bible and the ten commandments.  Look it up!  However, at some point within the last 40+ years (or more) human government has taken a backseat self-government. How can we be advocates of free speech (the first amendment) and yet stifle those who want to pray in schools or public places or dare I say read the bible in view of other people.  How have we become so third world-ish?
The United States of America used to be that land of hope, opportunity and promise.  But now...?  Just like the nation of Israel, when she lost her identity as a nation by incorporating things from the nations that surrounded her into their lifestyles, they were swallowed up by the falseness of a godless life.  America has adopted some of the practices of many countries and is close to leading a godless existence.
Genesis 6:5 " And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."                
Hence, the reason for the ten commandments. It was to be their guide for a God-led existence and it is to be our guide for a God-led existence.  No one knew what sin was or how to be a morally upright people.  Sin took that away.
What was once considered wrong in society today is now said to be the 'new right'.  How sad!  There is so much compromise in the world today and truly the only thing that can fix it is a return to the God inspired ways in which this nation was founded upon. Without the "origingal ten", no matter what "ten" man institutes as its own sign of perfection, God's ten shows us our inperfections and only He can fix us.

History Makers--Part Two

It is never about us.  God will not share His glory with anyone.
In 2013 let us take a stand for God and what we believe in.
Let us become History Makers

History Makers-- Part One

It's a beautiful day, the world has changed. It is now time for us to change the world.

2012 is behind us and so is yesterday.  We cannot do anything to change what has already occurred, however we can affect change for today and the lives of everyone near and dear to us. 

A few days ago I got the news that my Uncle Calvin had passed away and went home to be with the Lord.  This came as a shock to me because I had talked to him a few weeks before.  More sadly, I found out after Sunday morning service at my church.  Over the past couple of years we have had several conversations and I was greatly encouraged by him.  Let me explain.  Uncle Calvin sounded different when we first talked, and in my spirit I could sense 'something'.  Then he dropped the bomb on me, "Jesus was now his Lord and Saviour."  Wow!!  God is great.  Many, many years my mother (who passed many years ago) would be up at night praying for her brothers and sisters and all that she shared the gospel with.  She would pray for their salvation and tell them of God's love for them and that they should accept Jesus as Lord of their lives.  I cannot even begin to say how many lives have been touched by my mother and my Uncle who faithfully carried the torch that was passed onto them by believers before them.

Just two days before hearing about my uncle I read a verse in the bible from Psalm 116:15 and it says, "Precious in the sight of the LORD Is the death of His saints."   For a while I was confused by this verse and then the Holy Spirit showed me my error.  "Read it from God's perspective."
Titus 2:13 reads, "looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ." 
We look to the eastern sky and daily anticipate His return to call us home via the rapture.  If we are waiting and looking for Him, surely Jehovah is watching and waiting for us to return to Him.  Then and only then can the once perfect union between God and His creation(s) be wholly restored.  There is no more separation.  We are in His presence and we shall see Him as He is, the veil that limited our finite minds (humanity) has been removed.  Now, when I speak about the old and new testament saints and how they were makers of history because they dared to believe and were counted worthy because of their beliefs, I can add my uncle Calvin.  I am sure you can add to the list of history makers who went forth in the name of Jesus and shared the gospel of salvation.  History makers are remembered for giving of themselves.  Let us remember all the missionaries and aid workers and other believers who are being persecuted and more so faithful to the calling placed on each and everyone of them.  History makers change lives and in the name of Jesus Christ, we too have that power.
