The Gateway by Joyce Mizell

The Great Smoky Mountains has been the gateway to millions of visitors through out the years. Those majestic mountains seem to say to everyone; we’re so peaceful and tranquil come visit. The foliage on the trees in fall turn dozens of blazing brilliant colors splashed on by God. The scene makes for a “Kodak Moment.” This happens to be one of my most enjoyable vacation spots.

A sign at the entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains deserves our attention. It reads-The Great Smoky Mountains International Biosphere Reserve. The G S M was dedicated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in1940. Seeing the sign

I have wondered why the United Nations is involved with our land here in the US . Study shows the park was designated an International Biosphere Reserve in 1976 and is now a World Heritage Site since 1983. I understand the claims as to why this was done. If we give some serious sober thinking we may come to the conclusion that some of our USA Rights are falling off the mountain of the principals it was founded upon. This brings me to this thought, when the winds of change blow don’t bend like a reed, stand firm and strong
A study in the Bible tells us God divided the nations. Deuteronomy 32:8-When the Most High divided the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel . All nations are important to God. God is in control of all things and all people.
After reading the history of the Great Smoky Mountains the thought came to mind, is some of the sovereignty of the USA slipping away? I love America where I can worship the One and only True God. A One World Religion, A One World Government and A One World Money is not my American dream!!!!

Each day of our life we must ask the Lord let us never forget our Divine Blessings that only he can give. He will give us strength to hold on when the winds of change tries to blow us off the mountain cliff. Jesus said I and My Father are One. Never neglect to thank God for his Son Jesus incarnate. Through Jesus we see God!

John 12:44-Jesus cried and said, he that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. 45-And he that seeith me seeth him that sent me. Jesus the Son of God was Deity!

The Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains is just an entrance to an earthly vacation spot. The Gateway to Heaven is Jesus Christ. He is the Door! The entrance into heaven through Jesus Christ is Eternal!

John 10:9-I am the door; by me is any man enter in he shall be saved and shall go in and out and find pasture. Jesus is our good Shepherd who gave his life for his sheep.
