Nr.91 ended with: I continued, “I agree wholeheartedly with you, what we need is a total turn around and the overthrow of the present government and the setting up of a new one. There is only one thing on which we differ…….!” (See richardandmarina.net).
I saw many curious looks as they wondered what was coming. I repeated, “I agree with you, we need a total turn around and the overthrow of the present government and the setting up of a new one. The only thing we differ on is where this should take place; you say in the capital, Brussels, while I say right here, pointing at my chest, in our hearts. We need a total turn around here and the overthrow of the present “I” government and the setting up of the government of Jesus Christ. This is what will change us and the world. When man was originally created under God’s government, he rebelled and resisted God’s government, setting up his own. “Self” became and still is the ruler. And there are so many “Self’s” or “I’s” in the world, all wanting to be number one. That’s what’s wrong with this world and the only way to really change it is, to turn back to God and allow Him to be King. Man’s rebellion has separated him from God, from the source of all good.
Thank God, He didn’t give up on us, but continued to love us and sent His Son to pay for our sins and remove the wall of separation. As I was speaking I quoted John 3:16, which none of them had ever heard, “The Bible says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” I explained a little more, not knowing, that Marianne hearing these words, accepted Jesus right there and then. And a miracle happened in her heart and life. “He gave me a new heart and a new mind”, she told me. I thought of what had happened in Cornelius’ house in Acts 10, when Peter preached and the ones who were listening received Jesus. How wonderful to see this repeated! How is it with you, has there been a revolution in your heart? (Go to Musings).
