The Pursuit of Pleasure

Volume 43

May 2020

Number 5

Beloved:

The PURSUIT OF PLEASURE in all its varied forms is America’s current OBSESSION. The old adage, “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die,” is contemporary enough to be written tomorrow morning. If we can BELIEVE our PEERS, Marriage is for pleasure, work is for pleasure, food and drink is for pleasure, and time is for pleasure, as are health, strength, opportunity and wealth. 

The god of pleasure preaches a gospel which in essence says: "WHATEVER IS NOT PLEASURABLE IS TO BE RUTHLESSLY ELIMINATED AND WHATEVER IS PLEASURABLE IS TO BE GRASPED AT ANY COST." By this SATANIC view of life, the ONLY laws that must be ultimately YIELDED TO are the laws of SELF-GRATIFICATION and SELF- PRESERVATION. Any OTHER laws are made TO BEND before the SUPREME LAW OF PERSONAL PLEASURE. 

Oh Beloved, any PURSUIT OF PLEASURE apart from GOD who made us is a VIOLATION of God’s purpose in the creation of man and a TRAVESTY against man’s own best interest. ONLY SPIRITUAL AWAKENING (TRUE REVIVAL) can bring this generation to its senses and to realize: “Man’s chief end is to GLORIFY GOD and to enjoy Him forever.”

THANK YOU for allowing our Lord to use YOUR gifts and prayers in this REVIVAL MINISTRY. I love YOU dearly in our Lord Jesus! 

Now a word from GOD’S WORD: “Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore”--Psalm 16:11, KJV
