Cars, houses, money, marriage, job... all these characteristics of this world, consuming our mind day-in day-out. It's like you just keep going round and round and round. It's all just a rat-race. You go to pre-school, then to grade-school, then suddenly you are done with high-school. You go to university or college, then what next?, you are either starting a business or looking for a job, then comes marriage and the kids, and the race continues.
If you really just sit and think about all these, it's really consuming. The Bible says, vanity of vanities, all is vanity (Eccl 1:2). Not saying here that you shouldn't have all these, it would be mere ignorance to live a suffering life while on earth when our Almighty Father has provided us with so much (3Jn 1:2).
But the thing is, most of us have taken things too far. You chase all these things until your 'Final Destination' is totally robbed off your mind. It's just like in a video game... you are totally in another world for the period of the game, once it is over, you go back to reality. We are all in a virtual world of the 'Real Thing'. In video games, there are always the 'bad guys' and the 'good guys'... same as we have in this world.
The Bible says, but seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matt 6:33).... It's not saying that it is bad to have wealth or other material things, it's simply saying that while in that, God and His Kingdom should be your ultimate focus. You shouldn't allow anything to come between you and God (Rom 8:38-39). Your real possessions are in heaven. All you 'have' here are just virtual, just like in a video game too!
Constantly we should always ask ourselves, 'if rapture should occur in the next one minute, were would I go'? Not to live in fear but to live in consciousness of the World beyond - Heaven or Hell? That's the big question that most of us try to avoid. We find ourselves giving unnecessary descriptions to our actions, 'trying' to justify them with the Word.
Whether we'd admit it or not, we are in the end-time. Or are you waiting for God to come down Himself before you accept that there is more to these 'enjoyments'? You check the signs for yourself (Matt 24:5)..., what more?
Let us all live our lives with a consciousness of where we want to end-up after this 'game' is over. I for one, I would like to end up in Heaven, what about you?
