“While it is called today” (Psalm 95: 7, 8)
“Harden not your hearts as in the provocation” (Hebrews 3:15).

Today—natural man can copulate, make babies, and not do as is done by instinct in all nature except with man. Neglected children, is a common by-product. The problems in our schools, we hear, are because of the homes where these kids are reared. The philosopher was correct in saying that man “is a bent reed.” Have we ever tried to suck soda through a broken straw?

We are nearly completely forbidden “today,” from publicly saying that Jesus is the only way; that is, that nowhere else is a Savior from sin’s deadly grip found. Jesus’ disciples were thrown in Jail for saying – preaching on the streets – just that.

The New Testament preacher has no other message than; “Harden not your hearts;“ Heed the word of the Lord; thankfully turn form you sin while you can; don’t miss the opportunity of God’s mercy; receive Christ Jesus as Lord – and Savior; and walk in the light for it does indeed shine into welcoming hearts. “Harden not your (own) heart!” Do not provoke God.

“Let us therefore fear . . . for unto us the Gospel was preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
(Hebrews 4:1, 2)


God has said, “I will not always strive with man.”
“Today,” is what Jesus called: “The acceptable year of the Lord.”

Our Christian values and “conscience” has been taught away. Taught instead is an unbelief of the scriptures.

“Harden not your heart as in the Provocation (when they provoked Him),” the Bible says. We realize that God over and again has reached for us— to save us. We learn that He is provoked because we choose darkness rather than His light— that we refuse honesty and the confession that we knew we were choosing sin— and not Him.

Humans have a bad habit of not appreciating the wonderfully good things – until they have lost them. Deprivation – having good taken away or simply held from us – actually creates appreciation. Wisdom can too. God’s word is wisdom literature: Jesus said it is “Truth.”

“How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?”
(Hebrews 2:3)

Turn to Him. . . “While it is called today” (Psalm 95: 7, 8)
