Hello Brothers and Sisters...
Psalms 118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
This verse is the very center of our Bible and "the LORD" is the very center of this verse. He is the very center of ALL THINGS. The very power of our GOD ALMIGHTY. You see no matter what is happening in this very small world of ours called earth, there is only ONE who orchestrates it all.
There is a reason for everything that happens. No man can save anyone. We may have gotten a small reprieve for now, but without repentance and a turning away from sin in truth... turning to the LORD and His Righteousness it will be short lived.
When we give our trust to/in man it is total rejection in/of our very Creator. The ONE who rules and reigns from above.
1 Samuel 8:7 And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
1 Samuel 8:11-18 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants.
And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
Has not this been the case thru out the history of man? As man chooses to put their faith and trust in man there will never be any different result. We have never had any King but GOD ALMIGHTY.
Man may have thought he had a different king, man may have idolized and worshipped and adored another king but We have never had any King but GOD ALMIGHTY.
GOD has been very patient because of His love for man. Waiting for His chosen to get it.
There is most assuredly a purpose and a path. Unfortunately few will find it. Will you find it??
There is GOD's Truth and then there is man's truth, there is GOD's righteousness and then there is man's righteousness. Which one will YOU trust and have faith in? Your very life depends on this choice.
GOD has called many to Him.....will you answer His call? Will you say to Him... Here I am LORD,
I am not good or perfect but I see and understand your Righteousness and Truth. I am willing and wanting to walk in your ways. I am willing to lay down my self and let your Glory and Love work.
Genesis 22:11 And the angel of the LORD called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
Genesis 46:2 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
Exodus 3:4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I.
1 Samuel 3:4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.
Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
There are many great men in history that have heard the call of GOD ALMIGHTY and answered
"Here am I" The course of history was changed by these answers of men to JEHOVAH.
There is only ONE who orchestrates it all. There is only ONE KING...............JEHOVAH
I love my brothers and sisters.........enough to put before you life and death in TRUTH
Deuteronomy 30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days:
Be Well my Friends...
