The pawns

God has an ultimate plan. Those within humanity have no idea what this plan is. How long it is meant to take or what will be the overall result.
God, however, does provide humanity with a road-map of what will transpire within the populous that not only once lived, but those that are alive and those that will be alive. This is borne out by facts of prophecy fulfilled.
The book of Daniel is a prime example. It is evidence that God has a plan and that it can tell in advance how humanity will respond and act. Antiochus Epiphanes and the Maccabean revolt are covered within the book of Daniel and since it was prophesied before the events took place, however it is not history, people do not see it has prophecy fulfilled. The mere fact that they are fulfilled tells us that what is within the Bible when in a prophetic format has, is, or will transpire.
Yet people still go about living their lives as they see fit and how they wish. Thus being pawns. This is why we should read the Bible and come to understand what is taught within the teachings of Jesus Christ. For it is made clear that those that seek after the “freedom” to sin are in actuality slaves unto that sin. Never free ever again.
2 Peter 2:19 – They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.
People complain that to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ limits you and causes those that follow it to live a restrictive life. However, this is what most do not understand nor care to come to understand. This life we now live is not the blessed life we are promised as our reward. Yet millions go about treating this life as that very thing. They seek to live wealthy and luxurious lives here within this temporal existence. This is not what is promised within the Bible.
Any that teach and encourage wealth and success within this temporal plain are not slaves to God, but slaves to he who is master of this temporal realm at this time. They are false prophets. Yet millions listen to them and flock to them. They are the slaves, they are the pawns and it is their desire to cause those that truly seek the freedom of salvation to listen and follow them. For they do not wish to live in the pit of fire alone for all eternity.
2 Peter 2:20 – And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. 21 It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life. 22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”
For the vomit and the mud is sin, slavery and they too become pawns of damnation.
Read the Bible. Follow all the teachings within it. For we are to live in the light of God through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ by following what is taught within it. For it is both faith, which is belief and love in and for Jesus, and works which are the commandments written within the Bible.
