Government Mandates, Pt 1

So here we see three separate examples of government mandates and three separate responses to these mandates. The truth is that these four men did not consider their lives worth saving, but entrusted themselves to God for His will to be accomplished.

As in the Days of Jeremiah?

The book of Jeremiah is filled with remonstrance, anger and promises of judgment, but it is also filled with the promise of future reconciliation and perfect peace with God, the Creator of Israel. It is easy to forget this latter reality because so much of the book focuses on what no one likes to have to experience; God’s judgment. No authentic Christian will ever experience God’s wrath, just as Jeremiah did not.

Leaked Contract Tells Sad Story of Pfizer’s Dominance

I find it fascinating that decades ago, when news traveled very slowly, Orson Wells’ “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast was accepted as absolute truth at the time by many people. All they had was radio and their neighbors. People panicked and some even committed suicide from what I’ve read. Since news traveled so slowly, it took time for folks to realize the broadcast was simply theater. Behavior “scientists” studied the effects of that broadcast to determine how people react to fear-driven narratives.

Workers of Iniquity

The phrase “workers of iniquity” really gives the sense of those people who have abandoned all righteousness and dedicated themselves to all things evil. These are not the people who sin from time to time (or the average sinner), but people who have deliberately chosen sinful ways as a lifestyle and revel in it. The Psalmist is describing people who have literally given themselves over to evil, to partner with evil, to allow themselves to be a conduit for all manner of evil thoughts, words, and deeds.

God Will Strengthen You

Many portions of Scripture speak of how obedience to God looks. In verses leading up to Isaiah 58:11 we learn of several ways to obey God. Proverbs 1:7 says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Would you consider yourself a fool or wise? It is easy to determine. Do you fear the LORD God? Do you hold Him in absolute, profound and reverential awe? Do you strive to obey His commandments so that your relationship with Him grows and deepens and so that He can recreate within you the character of His Son, Jesus?

Fear Not

God wants us to “sit down” on the inside by empowering us to live as He would have us live. Interestingly enough, if we actually learn to biblically fear God, we will, I believe, at the same time, be learning to “fear not” or to “rest in Him” as He works in and through us for His good pleasure.

Are We There?

Over the past week or so, I’ve pretty much stopped going to social networks. It’s always the same repeatedly. I’d rather ignore what’s there and just concentrate on what God is doing. If I am learning to fear Him, then I must be willing to let go of those things of this world that keep me bound to frustration, worry and concern.

I honestly believe that as we separate from the Babylon system, we will be honoring Him and what we do in secret will be rewarded openly and that includes a greater awareness of Him and His work in and through us.

Will you join me in praying for each other that we will learn to offer Him our sacrifice of fear that leads to obedience?

He is Risen!

Happy Resurrection Sunday to everyone! In spite of the evil in the world, in spite of the growing darkness, Jesus is alive!

On the third day following His voluntary death, Jesus rose from the grave because death could not keep Him.

Jesus, GodMan was born of a virgin, lived a perfectly sinless life, died for our sin, and rose again.

Discerning Times: This Isn’t Happening, Right?

No one sees a problem with this? I recall the movie “Soylent Green” starring Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson as I’m sure you do as well. Turns out, the soylent green pill that everyone was eating to stay alive was “people.” When a person died either voluntarily through suicide or simply died, their bodies were trucked to plants where they were literally turned into food for society since the world was so grossly overpopulated in that movie. For the time of its filming and production, they did a really good job on that movie. But it was science fiction! However, what was science fiction is now becoming reality!

Manifold Blessings

Thinking back over this weekend, I recall how I felt so tremendously blessed while at the same time felt a sense of loss for all the missed opportunities over the past year. The Lord has graciously blessed us with one another. Human beings were not meant to live in isolation, separate from each other while living in proximity to one another. The fact that fear is the major building block to achieve this throughout global society should tell us a great deal.
