There are all sorts of things in the world today that make you sad. One thing today is family dysfunction. There is global disaster where ever you look. We are protected here in Australia but in many places there is constant conflict and difficulty. There are many social disappointments even in the church. When we have looked for something to satisfy our selfish desires, we become disappointed with our desires of relationships that don’t work out as hoped. The wars in the world destroy natural and social events. There is a great amount of social insecurity. Where do these things come from? What is the source of these disasters and disappointments? The curse causeless does not come.

We are living in the last moments of this world’s history in which we need to prepare ourselves to enter heaven. The relationships of heaven need to be learned here on earth before we get there. We concentrated in the last message in reference to a living connection with God. We need to have a relationship with God continually so we can have meaningful and peaceful relationships in the home, church and in society. The word of God says we need more than a theoretical knowledge. Many Christians are mere moralists. When it comes to relationships people love to moralize. They love to exchange the theory.

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
From eternal ages it was Gods purpose that every created being from the bright and holy seraph to man should be a temple for the indwelling of the creator. HP 191.
God’s relationship, the warm relationship that existed between Father, Son and Holy Spirit, was God’s purpose by creating seraphs and other inhabitants of other planets and finally this planet. It is my purpose to focus on that living connection with the living God whose purpose for us is to be a temple for the indwelling of the creator. The Godhead wanted to share that and Satan came and wrecked it. He was the highest of all the angels. The very heart throb of God in desiring to impart the precious relationship beauty that existed in the Godhead, that heart throb having being ruined by Lucifer, God wanted to restore.

Take the world, but give me Jesus.
The world, all its joys and comforts are of no real support when we see around us things falling down and all that people have planned and worked towards being lost; delays and discomforts. There is comfort in the Lord, and that can never be removed from us. With the considerations that we have in the fact that Jesus is very soon to return, and that all the things of this earth are to be destroyed, and we can see how it’s all crumbling around us, there is a preparation that is to be entered into with an intensity not yet seen. We need to occupy ourselves with something much higher than merely enjoying this planet; especially with regards to our social pastimes and our social interactivity with others around us.

What is written in reference to affection in the last days?
2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
What is the peril? It is relationships.
