Some of you don’t know anything about having to be on probation. While perhaps the majority of my readers might have gone through a type of probation with regards to work, the minority will know what I mean from a legal aspect. From an employment point of view, you have finished satisfactorily by reporting to work on time. You followed all task requirements and completed them satisfactorily. You are now considered a “full-time, permanent” employee and qualified for all benefits the company has to offer. This is also called “employment security”.
Then, there is the legal type of probation.
In my beginning of several skirmishes with the law, I saw a sign in the probation office waiting room which read, “Probation is another form of confinement.” I did not like confinement and I surely never wanted to be on any “form” of it, too! There’s a book called, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”. You see, that bird is happy. He’s getting is food and water, plus he’s secure from attacks from bigger birds and other animals, and even his caged cleaned regularly, so he’s happy. That was me. I refused to accept probation, rather stay in the cage and I’m happy because I’m being provided for instead of the so-called, make believe form of liberty, having the proverbial rope tied around my foot so they can drag me back at will! Nope, I’ll stay inside until the door opens and I walk out a free man.
However, there is another type of probation and it is from a religious point of view. Do you realize, dear reader, you, too, are under probation? Are you aware when your probation closes, it can either mean one of two things: (1) eternal life or (2) eternal damnation? Do you know what is required of you in order to successfully complete your probation? There are two ways in which your probation is finished: (1) Death, (2) When the Probation/Parole officer says it is finished because the Judge stated at sentence when your whole matter has been resolved.
There are conditions which must be met while on our religious, or Christian probation, you must adhere to otherwise you will be in violation of your probation and the sentence must continue as if you never had done anything right. Oh yes, with all forms of probation there are rules and to break these rules will put us back into bondage and this is never pleasant. God has rules, too, which we are to follow and there is no changing them, getting around them or avoiding them except under penalty of death. They’re called the “Ten Commandments”.
Friends, let’s get to the gist: God will soon declare, through His Son, “It is finished”. Revelation 22 tells us, well, let’s read it:
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” Rev 22:11-12 (KJV)
Which is followed by:
“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” Rev 22:14 (KJV)
There is no freedom, no gaining of eternal life, no going into the heavenly city, nor eating from the Tree of Life, UNLESS YOU KEEP GOD’S TEN COMMANDMENTS! This is how to satisfactorily complete your probation, and to do otherwise is continually breaking the Law of God, throwing away the grace offered for when you are in disobedience to this Law and repentance is truly displayed and accepted. There is no other way. Grace is given when you break this Law, not from any other way, and THIS is God’s love and we show we love Him by keeping His Commandments, all Ten of them.
Soon, whether on CNN, or New York Times, or from some other source we, you and I, will hear these words, a directive, a “new” law given by our judicial system, or presidents and other state leaders to mandate the “keeping Sunday holy” for church attendance, for family bonding and for the issue of climate change. This rule will totally be against God’s rule regarding the keeping of the “seventh” (Saturday) day of the week, and not the first (Sunday). Those who choose to side with man’s rule, will also choose to receive eternal punishment!
Thankfully, and again, I say, “THANKFULLY”, I know this truth and keep the Sabbath day and it is my duty to pass on to my homies, cell-mates and fellow probationers, to give you this understanding regarding end-times in which we live. Mark my word, you will be hearing this order from the government soon, very soon, and if you do not listen, you will receive another “mark” and it won’t be pleasant!
