Not At Ease In This World

Not At Ease In This World

Amos 6:1 (KJV) Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!

These verses speak of living at ease in this world.  Contextually it points to the ancient cities of Jerusalem and Samaria.  Neither then nor today should any regenerated soul live at ease in any location in this wicked world.  Indeed, folks who know Jesus Christ should find their comfort from Jesus Christ and not in “things,” their circumstances, or in people in this world.

Today this verse points to ancient times and for the inhabitants now alive on this earth.  Some of the world’s population are indeed citizens in this world, while others are simply sojourning here and are future residents of Heaven, just waiting for Jesus Christ to usher them into the promised eternal land, either through death or the return of Jesus Christ.

Did you know that there is a difference in the spiritual state in which one lives as he bides his time on this earth?  Sincere children of God are merely waiting for their eternal rest with God and living for Him while alive in this corrupt world.  Those souls who do not know God may be at home in the wickedness taking place on this earth; however, their eternity will be filled with demise…

 Trust in God and live forever as citizens of Heaven, disobey Him, and death is inevitable now and in eternity.  Please do not live at ease among the sin at work in this world.  Look to God and live forever.
