It’s A Wrong-Way Corrigan World!

.

.

.

.

.

During the late 1930’s, came a charming rascal named Douglas Corrigan, who loved aviation,https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpg preparing his plane to make a trans-Atlantic crossing. And then he flew that plane from Long Beach California to New York, but was refused permission to make that trans-Atlantic flight to Ireland, his ancestral heritage.

.

Well, this gifted mechanic and aviator “accidentally” got mixed up during his flight back home to Long Beach and miraculously ended up in, of all places, Ireland, the very place he desired, but was not permitted to go!

.

Well, in spite of all the world-wide attention he received and his denial of any wrong-doing, he was tagged with the name, “Wrong-way Corrigan”. He wrote a one-chapter book, called, “That’s My Story!”, and also made quite a bit of money over the next few years, from promotions.

A “WRONG-WAY CORRIGAN” WORLD?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svg

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_Groce_Corrigan_%28afdotmil%29.jpgSo just how does this little story connect with the Gospel of our Salvation? Well, maybe a better question would be, “Just how does this story of “Wrong-way Corrigan” apply to this world of sin?”

.

Wouldn’t you agree, that it could be said, we live in a, “Wrong-way Corrigan World”? Could this backward planet be appropriately named after that lovable rogue, Wrong-way Corrigan?

THE WAY OF TRUTH

After all, God has given this world its marching orders.

.

The Bible was graciously placed in the hands of Mankind. We have our flight plan, so-to-speak… “Keep My commandments, and live; and My law as the apple of thine eye.” Proverbs 7:2

WE’RE NOT GETTING AWAY WITH IT!

.

But in spite of this, the world has fully turned away from God’s Law, and has decided to do things their own way!

.

But unlike Douglas Corrigan, the world is not getting away with our stubborn self-willed ways! No, as a matter of fact, we are paying a heavy price for our insistence on doing it, “my way”!

.

Well just look around! We don’t have to look very far to see the results of our “Wrong-way Corrigan flight plan!”

THE RESULTS OF OUR REBELLION

.

We only need to look at the daily newspapers to see all the horrible results of our self-willed ways!

.

Murders, divorce, rape, sickness, suffering, thefts, wars, anger, violence, greed, sexual perversions, and a host of other horrible tragedies are the result of our stubborn and rebellious ways!

.

Yes, it is truly a, “Wrong-way Corrigan World”.

.

Our backward ways have brought about all the suffering now going on in this very tragic and sad world!

“TURN YE, TURN YE!”

Ezekiel 33:11

But God is still calling the world to return to His right ways!

.

Listen… “For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye…For He doth not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men. Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.” Ezekiel 18:32 & Lamentations 3:33, 40, 41

.

Here we have a plea by God. Yes, this and many other similar passages call for each and every human to return to the ways of Heaven!

 EVERLASTING LIFE!

And those who begin to submit themselves to the will of God might just find that life begins to uncomplicate itself.

.

And of course, the ultimate gift that God wishes to bestow upon us is everlasting life in a very happy world in which we no longer go the wrong way!

THE THIRD MOUNTAIN…CHOICE ‘C’…

.

“Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.” Jeremiah 51:25   

.

These three mountains are called “The Valley of Decision Constellation Group”. The first two mountains on the left in this sketch are known are the Mounts of Blessing and Cursing, as found in Deuteronomy 27:11-26 & Chapter 28.

.

The valley between these two mountains is called the Valley of Decision, as is written… “Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the Valley of Decision.” Joel 3:14.

.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

 

.

 

The Valley of Decision is not a physical place, but a spiritual valley in which each person of the world will make up his or her mind, as to just whom they will serve: God or Satan; God’s kingdom or this world (Satan’s kingdom). 

.

From the Mount of Blessing are heard all the blessings which result from serving God. From the Mount of Cursing are heard all the curses which result from disobedience to God’s will. And those in the valley will listen to both sides, and make up their minds, just who will they serve. A very simple choice, right? Wrong!
