James 4:13-15
(13) Go to now, Ye that say, today or to morrow we will go imto such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
(14) Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow, FOR WHAT IS YOUR LIFE? It is even as a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, AND THEN VANISHETH AWAW.
(15) For that ye ought to say, IF THE LORD WILL...

This would be the verse that that famous saying would come from:

"Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise...."

...for that ye ought to say, IF THE LORD WILL...

Other people will say, "Tomorrow I'm going to go hunting" or "Next week I'm going on vacation" or "Next year I'm retiring"

(15) For that ye ought to say, IF THE LORD WILL, we shall live, and do this, or that.

It may be the Lord's WILL you do a certaihn thing whether the "CREEK" rises or doesn't RISE.

On the other hand,

It may NOT be the Lord's WILL for you to do a certain thing even if the "CREEK" is dry as a bone.

But I want to look at verse 14, and in particular, the question James asks.

James 4:14
...FOR WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?

James 4:14
...FOR WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?

Some people's answer to this question=

Life is too short!
Life is a journey!
Life is a PARTY!

If LIFE is a PARTY, then your PARTY will soon be CRASHED BY GOD!

Life is a JOKE!
If life is a JOKE, then it is a JOKE you have played on your self!
Someone else said-

"Life is like a box of chocolates"

Spoken by a Hollywood RETARD. Of course I'm referring to Tom Hanks, not Forest Gump. Most people can't tell or don't know the difference. They can't seperate fantasy from reality. They think that "The DaVinci Code" (another Tom Hanks masterpiece) is reality and that the King James Bible is fantasy.

The book (The DaVinci Code) would be embraced by the world (It sold some 80 million copies and the movie would gross some 1 Billion $$$ world wide).
The book (and movie) would blaspheme the name of Jesus Christ. The world will embrace ANY attack or alternative to God (Enter the ANTICHRIST), The Bible, or Jesus Christ. Which explains the popularity of another Fairy Tale.
Charlie Darwins "Origen of Species".

Some one else said-

"Life is a mountain railroad"

And some other FOOL said-

Life is a ROCK
but the radio rolled me
at the end of the rainbow
lies a Golden Oldie

The TRUTH is,

AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW (If your not SAVED)

Lies Death, Hell, Destruction and Torment in the Lake of Fire!

What is your life?

Some people's LIFE is:

A Cigarette
Camels, Winstons, Salems, Marlboros, Chesterfield, Dorals, GPC, Kents, Kool, Lucky Strikes, Newport, Pallmall and USA.

The FIRST thing alot of people do when they get up in the morning and the last thing they do before going to bed at night is PRAY! NO! They BURN ONE!

Some people are going to DRINK AND SMOKE for eternity in THE LAKE OF FIRE!

Revelation 14:10-11
(10) The same shall DRINK OF THE WINE of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with FIRE AND BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
(11)
And the SMOKE of their TORMENT ascendeth up FOR EVBER AND EVER: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Other people's LIFE is a JOINT. Their dream is for POT to be Legalized so they won't end up IN THE JOINT!

Some people's LIFE is a BOTTLE!
Their whole LIFE revolves around another SHOT another DRINK, another BOTTLE!!!

I gave up on God a number of years back, and threw up my hands in defeat and embraced the BOTTLE until God came by my house and KNOCKED MY LIGHTS OUT, and I threw the BOTTLE away in one hour. Don't tell me it takes a 12 step program to overcome the BOTTLE. It just takes 1 STEP of FAITH!

It's funny,

After we're born we're given a BOTTLE (AS BABIES)
Some people leave this world 40,50 or 60 years later HOLDING ON TO A BOTTLE. They're BORN holding a BOTTLE and the DIE HOLDING A BOTTLE!

Some people's LIFE is FOOD!

The average person will eat 50 to 60 TONS (YES that's TONS) OF FOOD IN THEIR LIFETIME! That is equivalent to 6 grown Elephants, or 9 Hummers.

For some people, THEIR WHOLE LIFE revolves around EATING. They can't go 24 hours without FOOD!

Here's a thought, skip a meal and read the Bible instead.

Luke 4:4 Jesus Christ to Satan
And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, that man SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE, but by EVERY WORD OF GOD.

Satan tempted Eve with FOOD.
Genesis 3:1
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he saith unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, ye shall not EAT of every tree of the GARDEN?

Eve was TEMPTED with the NATURAL DESIRE to EAT something. The problem is, that God had already warned against EATING IT.

Someone said, "You are what you EAT". If that is true, then America is FULL of a bunch of BURRITO'S. People who are all just WRAPPED UP IN THEMSELVES!

The average LIFE!
From the Creator of LIFE and the Book of LIFE!
Psalm 90:10
The days of our years are threescore years and ten..

That's 70 years

...and if be reason of srength they be fourscore years...

That's 80 years

...yet is their strength LABOUR AND SORROW; for it is SOON cut off, and we fly away.

Is your LIFE about to be CUT OFF?

The average LIFE SPAN is 70 years. Some LIVE to be 90, and a few to 100, while some DIE in their 40's, and some in their 20's.

The question arises, What are you doing with the TIME you have on this side of the Grave?

Moses, who wrote Psalm 90, would say that the average length of LIFE is 70 years.


Psalm 90 verse 12
So teach us to NUMBER OUR DAYS, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

According to that verse, a WISE man will seek out the TIME of his LIFE. Or at least the average LIFE!

The ANATOMY OF LIFE!!!

If you live 70 years, that's 25,550 Days. If you subtract the first 18 years which is primarily made up of School, Play, learning or the preface to LIFE. You can call the first 18 years the Preamble to your LIFE.

From 18 years old to 70, which is 52 years. Most people, at least try to, Retire at 65 years of age. That would be 47 years working.

Psalm 90:12
So teach us to NUMBER OUR DAYS, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

The problem is, there are alot of ignorant people who think that DEATH will never find them out! They just don't realize just how short their life actually is!

The breakdown of your LIFE- Continued

If you live 70 years,

Psalm 90:10
The DAYS of our years are threescore years and ten...

You'll live:

613,200 Hours or 25,550 Days.
If you work for 47 years (from 18 to 65), you'll work 97,760 Hours (that's contingent upon working 40 hours a week)
I'm worn out just thinking about it.

613,200 Hours = 70 years
-97,760 Hours working
=515,440 Hours
-157,680 Hours from Birth to 18 years old
(School, Playing, Learning, education)
=357,440 Hours left
-145,087 Hours sleeping (Average 7.5 hours a night)
=212,353 Hours
- 19,345 Hours eating (That's 806 days of your LIFE EATING)
=193,008 Hours left

-58,035 Hours average 3 hours a day watching TV, Texting, and talking on the telephone(Smart or cell)
=134,973 Hours left
-29,017 Hours @ 1.5 Hours a day Cleaning the house, washing the dishes, mowing the lawn, taking a bath (shower), washing clothes, cooking and paying the bills.

=105,956 Hours left
which is 4,415 days left.Which is 12 years of your LIFE to either serve yourself (the FLESH) THE WORLD, the Devil or God.

BTW, A few weeks back, 203 Million Americans used the "WEB". Of these, some 116 Million were on Facebook. The average person spends 55 Minutes a day on FACEBOOK. That's about 2 years of your LIFE on FACEBOOK!

Only one LIFE, twill soon be passed
Only what's done FOR CHRIST will last.

James 4:14
...FOR WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?

Psalm 90:9 Moses would write this Psalm
For ALL our days are PASSED AWAY in the wrath: we spend our years AS A TALE TOLD.

The Bible says that our LIFE is as A TALE that is TOLD.

What kind of TALE does your LIFE tell?

Is it a Fictional TALE? Just a BIG FAT LIE!

I don't understand how people can actually spend time reading Fictional TALES (Books). What a waste of TIME! At the same time, PEOPLE WIL SPEND THEIR LIFE in front of an Idiot Box (Television) watching Fictional (LIES) Stories. When they say "Based on a true story", they're about to tell you a TALL TALE.

A Hypocrite is a person who's LIFE is a FICTIONAL TALE!

Job 8:13-14
(13) So are the paths of all that forget God; and the HYPOCRITES hope shall perish.
(14) Who's HOPE shall be CUT OFF, and who's trust shall be in a SPIDERS WEB.

Hollywood is FULL of Hypocrites. Most people will literally spend 8 years of their LIFE in front of the TELEVISION!

If yor LIFE is a TALE that is told,

Is it a Horror Story? Would it be Shocking to anybody that's heard it?

Is it a Comedy?
The Bible says in
Psalm 14:1
The FOOL hath said in his heart, there is no God...

God said in
Proverbs 1:24-26
(24) Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
(25) But ye have set at nought ALL MY COUNSEL, and would NONE OF MY REPROOF:
(26) I also will LAUGH AT YOUR CALAMITY; I WILL MOCK WHEN YOUR FEAR COMETH.

God says when these people GET INTO TROUBLE and when they sure enough GET IN A MESS, because they didn't listen to GOD when he called them, HE WILL LAUGH AT THEM WHEN THEY CALL ON HIM.

Psalm 90:9
...we spend our years as a TALE THAT IS TOLD.

Is your LIFE a TALL TALE?

Proverbs 16:18-19
(16) PRIDE goeth before destruction, and a haughty spirit BEFORE A FALL.
(19) Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to devide the spoil with the PROUD.

1 Peter 5:5-6
(5)...For God RESISTETH THE PROUD, and giveth grace unto the humble.
(6) HUMBLE YOURSELF therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.

Proverbs 16:5

Every one that is PROUD in heart is an abomination to the Lord: Though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

What is your LIFE?

Psalm 90:9
For all our days are passed away in the wrath: we spend our years as a TALE that is told.

What kind of TALE (STORY) is your LIFE?

Is it a Horror TALE?

Psalm 40:1-3
(1) I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
(2) He brought me up also out of an HORRIBLE PIT,...

People will NOT get saved or RIGHT WITH GOD UNTIL they realize they're in a HORRIBLE PIT.

...out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
(3) And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and FEAR and shall trust in the LORD.

Or would your LIFE be an X-RATED TALE?

Some people will spend their LIFE engulfed in FILTH!

2 Peter 2:6-8,14
(6) And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

As in a great multitude across America.

(7) And delivered just Lot, vexed with the FILTHY conversation of the WICKED:
(8)(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day WITH THEIR UNLAWFUL DEEDS).

(14) Having eyes FULL OF ADULTERY, and that cannot cease from SIN; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with COVETOUS PRACTICES; cursed children:

Jude 7-8
(7) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, GIVING THEMSELVES OVER TO FORNICATION, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, SUFFERING THE VENGEANCE OF ETERNAL FIRE.
(8) Likewise also these FILTHY DREAMERS defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

I was born to serve the Lord. The bible tells me if I put God first in my life and love my neighbor as myself, I will find peace and contentment in my life. God will supply all my needs according to His riches in glory. Then he promises me eternal life through Christ Jesus. What more could I ask for? This is my life...He's given me more than I could have ever asked for.

Job 14:1-2
(1) Man that is BORN of a woman is of FEW DAYS, and full of TROUBLE.
(2) He cometh forth like a flower, AND IS CUT DOWN: He fleeth also as a shadow, AND CONTINUETH NOT.

If you LIVED 70 years, you'll LIVE 25,550 days. If you had a dollar $$$ for every day that you lived (If you lived for 70 years,many don't) You might have enough to buy a good used pickup truck.

FEW DAYS, AND FULL OF TROUBLE is the testimony of the man that is NOT SAVED!

Verse(1) Man that is BORN OF A WOMAN is of FEW days, and FULL of TROUBLE.

Notice that it doesn't say MAN THAT IS BORN OF GOD or MAN THAT IS BORN AGAIN, but MAN THAT IS BORN OF A WOMAN.

Man that is BORN OF GOD may have TROUBLES in this LIFE but he has EVERLASTING (ETERNAL) LIFE!

John 3:36
He that believeth on the Son hath EVERLASTING LIFE: and he that believeth not the Son SHALL NOT SEE LIFE; but the wrath of God ABIDETH ON HIM.

Psalm 16:11
Thou wilt shew me THE PATH OF LIFE: in thy presence is FULLNESS OF JOY; at thy right hand is PLEASURES FOR EVERMORE.

We may suffer in THIS LIFE, but just wait until we get on the OTHER SIDE.

Contrast
Ephesians 2:12-13
(12) That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, HAVING NO HOPE, AND WITHOUT GOD IN THE WORLD.
(13) BUT NOW...

Thank God!!!

Wherefore ye know not what shall be on the morrow, FOR WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?

THE 4 SEASONS OF LIFE

Your LIFE is as the 4 SEASONS

SPRING
New Life

The Sringtime of LIFE would cover the ages from Birth to around 15 years old. The time when you don't know the awful cruel truth about SIN. LIFE is fresh and new. You spend your time just learning new and wonderful things.

Late Spring, early Summer (Ages 15-20)
You begin to hear a new word, "WORK".And another word, "JOB", and still yet another word "BILLS".

Summer
From 20 years old to 60 years old.

Summer is the time for hard work. It's HOT, the days are long, and it's the time of hard work and toil. It's the time for sweat and labor.

Genesis 3:17-19 The Curse upon Man
(17) And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: CURSED IS THE GROUND for thuy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;

That is, we belong to Adams LABOR UNION.

(18) Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field.
(19) IN THE SWEAT OF THY FACE SHALT THOU EAT BREAD, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

2 things that God told Adam that Man rejects and has done his best to do away with..

The CURSE on Man
(1) You'll work to survive in this LIFE!

Modern Man
Not if I live off the Government.

(2) You'll make your living by THE SWEAT OF YOUR FACE.

Modern Man
Not if I have AC

Consequently, Modern Man has an enormous HEALTH CARE CRISES, Doctor Bills, Hospital Bills and Pills Bills.

God said that you'll make a living by the SWEAT of your face. If your NOT SWEATING (working out, Gym, Aerobics, Running, Jogging etc.) Then your Health will suffer.

The 4 Seasons of Life
Continued

SUMMER

From the ages of 20 to 60

The end of Summer
Jeremiah 8:20
The harvest is past THE SUMMER IS ENDED...

For a Man or a Woman, that would be about 65 years of age.

...the SUMMER is ended, and WE ARE NOT SAVED.

It's very terrifying when a person get's to be in their 60's and 70's and they HAVE NOT BEEN SAVED. Why? Because they (often times) think "Why do I need God?" or "Why do I need to be saved, I've done alright without God all these years" or as one FOOL has said, "I did it MY WAY".
God has dealt with them and dealt with them and they have hardened their hearts against Him.
A person that talks like that is a First Rate FOOL. If it wasn't for the mercies and the protection of God, these people wouldn't have made it past 10 days old.

Lamentations 3:22
It is of the LORD'S MERCIES that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.
