On a day known as “April Fool’s Day,” where people play jokes on one another, harmless, there is a “fool” that is not harmless and the worst type of fool! This “fool” tries to save his life by living for him or herself as the center of the universe as though they are “Creator and God,” having no responsibility to the Creator or Redeemer.

“The Fool has said in his heart,’ NO GOD!”-{Psalm 14:1.}.This sums up the heart of the fool. A refusal to submit. Rebellion to the Creator.  “ For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing to be wise, they became fools,  and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.”- {Rom 1:18-23}. The “Fool,” is an idolater, replacing God with worship of the creature, declaring they determine who is and is not worthy of worship! They know He exists because of the testimony of creation and within them. But profession to be wise, they become fools because they exchange God for a creature!

“They have disdain for the Word of God and reject it’s Author and authority’s claim on their lives. “And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”-{Matthew 7:26-27}. The foundation of their decision making is not built upon His Word, anything else is “foolish.”

The “Fool,” looked at what had accumulated and in his arrogance was making future plans, when God was holding his life and his future was in His hands! ” And I will say to my soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry. But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’- {Luke 12:19-20}.

The “Fool,”rejects the Creator, His Word, as Ultimate authority, lives and makes plans as though they are in control, and no concern for their eternal destination. With every breath they edge closer to eternity!

There is hope for the “fool,” It is to repent of self rule and submit to Christ’s reign for their lives and find in Him the purpose of their existence. They were made for Him. Does God consider you a “Fool?”

The “fool,” denies God, replaces God, plans a future without God, rejects the Word of God.

The Fool will meet God; “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you…”-{Luke 12:20}

They are to be pitied and prayed for and warned, to turn to God and submit to the LORD Jesus. “Today is the day of salvation, harden not your heart’s”

Stepping into eternity unprepared is the greatest and Saddest of all fools…
