Seeking Goodly Pearls

Lily Among Thorns Song of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3,

Memories, Chapter 1, Page 6

I was desperately seeking for a word of encouragement, and thereby I prayed at the time what seemed like a simple enough prayer and asked my Father God, in Jesus’s name, to always show me the truth. But what I thought to be an uncomplicated request would change my life forever. As it is written in John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’ I was comforted by God’s blessed assurance as it is written in Hebrews 6:11, “And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end.”

Author’s Commentary

The title of this Chapter is Memories. The character Lily in this chapter often times finds herself trying to reconcile the burdensome memories of the past conflicting with the  “Perilous Times” of the present. The consequences thereof as history inevitably always manages to repeat itself,  Lily concludes as it is written in Ecclesiastes 1:9,  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

The Wicked ideology of the “Son of Perdition” is on the march in the first decades of the Twenty-First Century,  and with the fulfillment of the Scriptures steadily drawing nearer to being fulfilled by the day.

Lily knows in conclusion by remaining faithful to her beliefs, she is under the constant threat via invasive technology intruding a person’s biological physicality in order to buy or sell, which the Bible refers to as the “Mark of the Beast” is soon to become the new norm, and as compared to the times of tribulation in the previous known history, this day and time around in history will be unparalleled in its treachery, and there will be no place to hide as it is written in Matthew 24:21, For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And although Lily knows living in the “End of Days”, in her future there is a good possibility of a direct confrontation  with the “Wicked Regime’s” futile rebellion against God.

Lily is certain in mind of  the established validity of Bible Prophecy, and the coming Kingdom of God. And as is her custom Lily seeks out the wisdom of the Scriptures as it is written Proverbs 8:17, I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Seeking

Matthew 13:45, Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls.

Luke 13:5-9, I tell you: Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. He spake also this parable:  A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on his fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?  And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it. And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.

Acts 13:7-12, Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God. But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith. Then Saul, ( who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him. And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.

1st Corinthians 10:33, Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

1st Peter 5:8-11, Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; Whom resist stedfast in faith, knowing that the same afflections are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace, who has called us unto his eternal glory by Jesus Christ, after that ye have suffered a while. make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion  for ever and ever. Amen.
