Deal of All Deals, Part 2: “No Man Is An Island!”

“No Man is an island, No man stands alone!

Each man’s joy is joy to me, each man’s grief is my own!

…No man is an island, way out in the blue!

We all look to the One above,

for our strength to renew!”

Song sung by Joan Baez

.

Here is an old song from the sixties, which presents the biblical concept, that no man is an island, no man stands alone.

And this concept can be seen in such Bible passages as this…“Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in His ways. For thou shalt eat the labo
ur of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD.” Psalm 128:1-4

.

Here we see that my own personal Salvation will have ramifications far beyond just my own Salvation! It will also influence my family’s eternal destiny, as this above passage suggests! I am not an island! I do not stand (or fall) alone! I take others with me!

.

And so, if ever there was a cudgel to push me forward up the Heavenward pathway, this precious promise regarding my family is it!

SMALL PEBBLE MAKES BIG RIPPLES

And it goes even further than just my family! No doubt you have heard the proverb about a very little pebble when tossed into a pond makes very wide ripples which reach far beyond!

.

Well, so it is with my Salvation! Yes, by allowing God to purify my heart and mold my life into the likeness of Jesus, will have a ripple effect that will reach far into the world!

WORKS ALSO IN THE NEGATIVE

Now this concept of, ‘No man is an island’, also works in the negative sense…

.

Listen to the ripple effect which our sins have on others… “Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;” Hebrews 12:15

.

Yes, when one member of the body of Christ suffers, that suffering affects the other body parts!

DON’T LOSE HEART!

.

And so, the Bible tells us that our Salvation is much more than just some personal decision. No, it also has a great impact on the eternal destiny of those around us!

And so, dear Stranger & Pilgrim, we must not faint or lose heart, as we ascend that upward Pathway to the Celestial City! There are others depending on our success!

.

Listen…“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:5, 6

.

And so, perhaps the sheaves that we bring with us will be those for whom our own personal Salvation has affected!

TODAY’S PRAYER…

.

“Dear Lord, Help me to really see what a great trade that God is offering. And let me not be deceived into thinking that I can have both worlds! But like the apostle, Paul, let me lose all things, that I might win Christ…

VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP

.

.

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

Joel 3:14

.

.

AT THE CROSSROADS OF LIFE…

As we all know, life is made up of one decision after another. Some are of little consequence. Others are more important. And then there are those times which require life-changing decisions.

.

The Bible speaks of the Valley of Decision…”Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.” Joel 3:14. Of course, this valley is a spiritual concept and not a literal place.

.

But God has inscribed this very truth in the heavens. It is called “The Valley of Decision” Constellation. It speaks of that valley that each person must walk through.

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

staples

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid. Then find the next pyramid to its right (south). Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation. These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the Word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2
