This article is called “THE KNOWN AND THE UNKNOWN.” I think the first thing any person would ask will be this one. “OK, so, what is it that is unknown?” I could easily say, “Life.” It could be the lack of understanding, or many other topics. Let’s face it, everything in life is unknown at some point in your life. From the very instant that we are born, there will always be the unknowns in many areas. Let’s start with a proper definition of unknown.
Dictionary. com says,” not known; not within the range of one’s knowledge, experience, or understanding; strange; unfamiliar. not discovered, explored, identified, or ascertained: the unknown parts of Antarctica. a thing, influence, area, factor, or person that is unknown: the many unknowns in modern medicine; The director cast an unknown in the leading role.”
Websters Dictionary gives us more variables. “Not known or not well-known also: Having an unknown value. something that requires discovery, identification, or clarification: such as: A symbol (such as x, y, or z) in a mathematical equation representing an unknown quantity: A specimen (as of bacteria or mixed chemicals) required to be identified as an exercise in appropriate laboratory techniques.” I think we have enough definitions and examples of the word unknown.
TEN PEOPLE YOU NEVER HEARD OF THAT CHANGED THE WORLD-REALLY?
I will post a link herefor you to see who they really are and why. We live our lives and have family and friends. There are many acquaintances that we may know but have never been close to them. Our knowledge of them is limited. You may even know them or work with them and have limited knowledge of them. They are more of strangers then friends. as people often say, “They are not in my circle of friends.” There is a big difference in knowing about someone, but not knowing them personally. The world is full of people who are unknown to us.
I could tell you about my dad and give you facts and data but, you will never know him personally. He died in 1984. This is no different than studying history. You may know all about the latest movie stars or politicians but never know them personally. Then you may also have those whom you have been very close too but over time, your relationship drifted apart. This happens in families also.
It always amazes me when I find people who have this great need to feel important because of who they know. I guess status and position makes you part of the elite. I have worked for 3 different millionaires in my life, and they were all the same. Overbearing, egotistical, self-important people. Just like one Congressman asked me, “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?” I can only say, “The world did not panic and go into chaos, when he died.” Him being a congressman, the state named a 4-lane highway in his honor. That did not last long, they re-named it 3 years later.
I guess we have history to remind us of important people and events. Then you create “memory hooks” in our minds to remember them. For each person, some are worth remembering and some are not. EXAMPLES: Where were you and what were you doing the day JFK was assassinated? Or the day Elvis or Michael Jackson died. Here is another one. What were you doing when 9-11 happened? Now we have a new generation who has no clue of these events and does not care. It has no meaning or relevance to their life. Some know and remember those people, while to others they are unknown.
You have family and so-called friends.I mentioned my dad earlier. Before he died of cancer, here is what he told me. He said, “Son, throughout your life you will meet people and have a lot of acquaintances, but at the end of your life, you will be able to count all of your true friends on just one hand.” My dad was right. Most people are simply temporary friends. THINK ABOUT THAT.
Now I want to talk about the most important person who has ever been born. Yet he and his father are hated by so many people on earth. He is well known, but so many do not want to know him. His name is “JESUS CHRIST.” If he were some Hollywood Actor or billionaire people would love him. Understand that He wants an “UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH EVERYONE.” He is not like the “fair weather friends” who just walk off and leave you. He said, Hebrews 13:5″Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” There is a man who sticks closer than a brother Proverbs 18::24 Do you have a brother and friend like this, or do you want HIM?
His father is named God and He created the Universe an everything including you. He gave you life. He is richer than anyone could ever hope to be. He has given you eternal life and will give you salvation and treasures where He lives (Heaven). God and his Son (Jesus) knew you before you were ever born and they love you to death. As a matter of fact, Jesus already died for you. (John 3:16-18).
The blue link above shows the 10 people who they say changed the world. REALLY? I have earth shaking news for you. Jesus is the one who shook the earth when he died and resurrected from the dead “FOR YOU.”
THE PARTY ANIMAL NAMED SATAN
You can have a best new friend named Satan. This dirt-bag wants to own you. He is no friend and never will be to you. He has already chosen you and never intends on letting go of you. He is the very epitome of evil and he really wants to destroy you forever. He is the world’s greatest liar, deceiver, thief and crook. He is a player. (John 10:10 ““The thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy I (Jesus) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Satan hates you and has since the day you were born.
He wants to drag you down to hell with him. He is the original sinner. He is the one who led all mankind with his lies, he is A Fake god and the world’s greatest liar and scammer. He has no love in him at all and hates you, because you are God’s creation. He is totally devoid of any good. Since you do not know much about the one who wants to be your new best buddyclick the blue link to find out more about him. Do you really want to understand how much he is your enemy, then also click this blue link for details.
I wrote this article differently than I normally do. I wanted to try and use common sense language that people will understand and relate to. I do not know if I have succeeded or failed, SO YOU WILL HAVE TO BE THE JUDGE ABOUT IT. Humans should be smart enough to know the difference between a good guy and a bad evil guy. Hopefully they still understand right and wrong, and good from Evil. I do believe if people can truly see who Satan is and what he offers (HELL AND ETERNAL TORMENT), then hopefully they will turn to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
If people recognize they will burn in hell for eternity with Satan, then maybe their eyes will be opened to the goodness of God and how loving, gracious, and merciful God truly is to mankind. For too many people on earth, God remains “UNKNOWN” to them, or they have been blinded by SATAN or some “RELIGION.”
Salvation is not any Religion, salvation is a “PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.” God gave every person a wonderful gift called “FREE WILL” and that is your ability to choose. You truly have a choice to make. You will either choose Jesus or refuse Him. Refusing Jesus and the salvation he offers, throws you right into the hands of Satan. What has Satan ever done for you except help you SIN? He is the Deceiver. God wants to save you from SIN-SELF-AND-SATAN.
According to Gods Holy Word, we right now are living in the last days. Things on this planet are very wicked and evil. We are very close to the Rapture of the Church. That means all Saved Christians are going home to heaven to be with the lord. Then, Satan does Take over this world as its “god” and the antichrist will help him rule this world for the 7-year TRIBULATION. This will be a time of hell on earth, and Satan will place his mark of “OWNERSHIP” on you.
All the way back to humans beginning, our “original parents” were created and placed in the garden of Eden. Then the “original sinner” (SATAN) entered the garden and tempted (set a trap) for Adam and Eve. He told them that they could be like God. Genesis 3:5 “For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Sin entered the world right there. WE humans have “inherited sin” all the way back from Adam and Eve. We all have a sinful human nature (born with it). And our body of flesh is sinful. God being who He is cannot and will not ever ACCEPT SIN. BUT HE WILL FORGIVE IT.
Sin must be punished, because all sin is against God. God sent his only begotten son Jesus to pay for our sins. Jesus was beaten, battered and nailed to the cross for our sins, he had no sin of his own. He suffered and died as our substitute to pay for our sins. He was buried GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD 3 DAYS LATER. FORGIVENESS WAS PAID FOR. Because of what Jesus did for us, God will now receive and accept us, forgive us and make us his Child through a Spiritual birth.
Here are the WORST words you never want to hear on judgement day. MATTHEW 7:21-23 “Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I NEVER KNEW YOU: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (INTO HELL).
Are you willing to receive and accept God’s forgiveness? He will forgive you and save your very soul and spirit. Are you willing to turn to God for forgiveness. Romans 10:13 says. “FOR WHO SO EVER SHALL (ASK) CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD Shall be saved.” I beg you to bow your heart and do it now. ASK AND RECIEVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR OWN PERSONAL SAVIOR. YOU WILL NO LONGER BE UNKNOWN BUT KNOWN.
If you have just prayed and received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, Please let me know so that I can rejoice with you. Your thoughts, opinions and comments are welcome so leave them below in the left, bottom, REPLY comment section. Also enjoy the song below. RAY
