I DELIGHT TO DO THY WILL, O MY GOD: YEA, THY LAW IS WITHIN MY HEART. Psalms 40:8. KJV.
I love Gods law, I love how it makes me feel closer to God. How it makes me realize God is many things, including a just God, but He is also a legal God.
BUT HIS DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD: AND IN HIS LAW DOTH HE MEDITATE DAY AND NIGHT. PSALMS 1:2. KJV.
I do meditate on Gods word day and night. To try and know His laws. So I can please Him, and it has been working. I have a sense lately, and I cannot explain it, but I know this pleases God, searching to understand His laws. As you know, I promote the King James for holiness, for the anointing, the full power of Gods promises, about who He is, and His law. I probably should have been a lawyer, but I will be a defender of His truth. My King James bible.
The Lord, has really been showing me a lot about the law lately, and I have been encountering those who in the body of Christ, as well, as in the world, who have no honor or respect for law.
And I am talking about Gods law, as well as every day laws, that are in place. In society, and in the United States. They don’t respect it, honor it, or even consider it. Which makes me sad. But I wonder how God feels?
It just has made me conclude, that if you don’t honor Gods laws, you won’t have an example or understanding to respect mans laws, or the laws of the land. I wonder if this is part of our problem?
And I don’t say that flippantly. I say, that, because I have actually talked to Christians, who really have no respect for law. And first because they do not respect Gods law.
And if you have no respect, for Gods law, you won’t have fear of God. I have written about the fear of God on a few occasions, but it has made me see, that if you fear God. You will fear the consequences of breaking His laws. It will keep you out of trouble.
I have made those mistakes, which are in His eyes sin. And many Christians, have a strange, and to me a perverted sense, when it comes to the law. They think they have a license to sin, because of grace. They really don’t help people, to be free, because they themselves are blind, and leading the blind, and have chains on themselves.
And when you think you don’t have to honor Gods laws, your in a strange place spiritually. I have talked to many who think that we are free from the law. And that is so wrong, because the only law we are free from is the law of sin, and death. Found in Romans 8:2. One could miss that, if they don’t look carefully, and I think many Christians have missed that. But Romans 8:2 says this:
FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
Do you notice it does not elaborate, that we are free from Gods commandments or laws?
Many Christians make this mistake. They think grace covers it. Wrong. If sin is evident, and it’s unrepented. God will not answer your prayers, (read Psalms 66:18 King James) And it will be marked against you in the book of life. And when you stand before God, those books will be opened. What will it say? That you disregarded Gods laws, and the law of the land?
I talked to a woman yesterday, who was very knowledgeable about word. She used it in the context, concerning the immigration problem we have. And I won’t share all the scripture she used, but she tried to use it in a way, where it was promoting illegal activity for immigrants.
We went rounds, me and this lady, in our communications. But she had this strange perverted sense, that if it is good, (in her eyes, which could be deceptive) then its o.k. to break laws. Wrong. She admitted to wanting to breaking the law of the land. And promoted that to me.
She tried to use examples, but because I do fear God, and I do try to keep Gods laws, and commandments, I saw through her reasoning. Basically, she was trying to find loop holes, to sin. And she wanted to bring me into that darkness, to agree, with her agenda, but I would not go for it.
What I finally concluded about this lady, is that, she had pride. She actually admitted, she was trying to turn the tables in the matter, and would use scripture to try and justify the breaking of laws. Gods law, and the law of the land, concerning immigration.
I am somewhat saddened to see, our country in the position it is in right now. Concerning immigration, as I add my two cents here. I feel for those people. But I truly believe if those in authority, from the beginning, had protected our borders, supported our President Trump, with funds, in these matters, that would have been a clear signal, Don’t come here illegally.
Many want to argue, that they are seeking asylum. But there are ports of entry, to do that, to do it legally. See “Violation 8, United States Code 1325.” And when they just come into the land, and get benefits from Americans that pay their taxes. I just think its wrong. We have a homeless problem and a problem where our own Veterans, need assistance, and help, and they should take priority to me.
This woman wanted to use scripture that supports the alien, that comes in the land. To love them to be kind to them. I don’t have a problem with that. If here legally. I don’t know the conditions to be honest at those detention centers. But I still believe we are a compassionate country, and treat people fairly. But they are definitely overfilled. So the resources are limited, because funds are not available. And whose fault is that?
What bothers me, is she disregarded our laws. As an American, and as a Christian. And….How that can hurt Americans. Yet she could not see how it hurts America. Or herself.
And this is where she and I disagreed. Her heart, was compassionate. I am compassionate as well, but there is a right way, and a wrong way. A legal way, and an illegal way, and if you do it illegally, you don’t honor God. Or the laws of the land.
I have seen other Christians who do not honor Gods law, I had another lady tell me she was “blameless.” As she dismissed Gods laws. And I thought how strange, because I know we all sin, we all come short of the glory of God. This is also scriptural. No one is blameless. Every one of us, put Christ on that cross. She even in some strange way, said, grace was better than her salvation, which to me insulted Christ, and what He did on that cross for us, but she tried to use language as her mistake, so I gave her grace. And I do not want to judge, because I know, I sin as well.
But still….When you break Gods laws….
Thats pride, that’s another way of trying to justify breaking laws, because of grace. We do not grow, if pride or sin is there. By breaking Gods laws.
All I know, and see is that if we do not honor Gods laws, we will break mans laws. And if I can get you to see that, and honor Gods laws, perhaps I will spare you some heartache.
I just think of how misguided I was in my youth. I broke laws, of God. And against myself. I paid severely in many ways because of that. It taught me to look and see why things sometimes did not go well with me, spiritually or in life.
Breaking laws, Gods laws first, hurts a person.
One of my favorite scriptures, I use in this, is the following: It is a secret to happiness. By keeping the law. I tried to share it with that lady, who disagreed with me concerning immigration. She dismissed it. She picked and chose another scripture that she believed tried to deflect from that truth. Which I will write here as well.
But to me, because she actually took a stance in trying to break the laws of the land, and tried to justify it was o.k. She actually failed in her attempts to help those people, because without the law, they will perish. They cannot find happiness. And isn’t that just one of the wonderful things we all seek? Happiness?
Many of these immigrants are suffering, because they are so misguided, when it comes to obeying the law, and if they see many in our country turning the other eye, disobeying the law, what do they expect? They will come.
PROVERBS 29:18 KJV. WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH: BUT HE THAT KEEPETH THE LAW, HAPPY IS HE.
She ignored this scripture. She gave me this one:
THIS IS THE FIRST AND GREAT COMMANDMENT. AND THE SECOND IS LIKE UNTO IT, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF. ON THESE TWO COMMANDMENTS HANG ALL THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS. MATTHEW 22:38-40 KJV.
Which she thought gave her permission to break all the other laws. And do you see this? I do, many will take one scripture like this, and disregard the rest of the Bible, and thats wrong.
I wish, I had shared this scripture with her, I may just put my post on that page, maybe she will see it, even though, I blocked her, I got tired of her nonsense.
THOU THAT MAKEST THY BOAST OF THE LAW, THROUGH BREAKING THE LAW DISHONOUREST THOU GOD? ROMANS 2:23 KJV.
We dishonor God, if we break mans laws, and Gods laws. And one may get away with it, but sooner or later, it will catch up with a person, and it is better to just see, the error of our ways, repent, and make it right with God, and with those you have broken laws with. Including the law of loving one another. You can love, legally, others. It would be better for them, and yourself if we all take this to heart.
GIVE ME UNDERSTANDING, AND I SHALL KEEP THY LAW: YEA, I SHALL OBSERVE IT WITH MY WHOLE HEART. PSALMS 119:34.
(Read all of Psalms 119, from a King James, it gives a beautiful understanding to doing the right thing by Gods laws.)
FOR I GIVE YOU GOOD DOCTRINE, FORSAKE YE NOT MY LAW. PROVERBS 4:2 KJV.
Blessings, in Christ,
