Among many human failings the saint of God must overcome is knowiing what is, and what is not, his concern.
It is easy for a man to want to know what God requires of others or, worse yet, to believe he knows and to the point that he believes he should regulate the behavior of his fellow saints.
The truth is somewhat different. While God establishes men as examples for others, no man truly has charge of another. All answer to God...and the questions he answers to the Almighty are rarely anyone else's business.
HAPPY NEW YEAR people of GOD!!! God Said I Can Radio makes 3 Godly wholsesome years on the air!! The season of not fainting is still in the air!!! Galations 6:9 nd let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. This new year we are going to address the issues on settling, whether it be a mate, a job, a career, an apt, whatever the case may be.. Many ppl are in desperate search of LOVE, but will it be a Good man or a God Man? We'll tackle the vice ver
There are many times when people have problems with God's choices, including God's people. Knowing not the end from the beginning, and having neither aappreciation nor preference for the suffering God prescribes for those belonging to Him, it is easy for mmen to choose ways to accomplish what comforts them....but does not please God. The height of faith and submission is to let God choose His way, no matter what it may do to your way, or even to you.
One things that is widely promoted in the church is the idea of "we". "We need each other", "No man is an island", "You are your brother's keeper", and other phrases are popular sayings crossing the pulpit as pastors do their regular "cat herding" of God's people.
However, the Bible is not so "communal", at all, when it comes to should matter most in the life of any man, which is salvation. I'll discuss why.
One thing that I find frustrating is hearing or reading of people saying "Jesus fix it", or some variation of that, when becoming aware of a challenging situation. While God can "repair" anything He chooses, He is neither an attack dog that you can sic on an enemy, nor a contractor that you can hire to redo your life's kitchen. Understand that God "works" more on people who have problems then He works on people's problems, and you will understand where I
There is nothing new about children conceived outside of wedlock; it can be found in scripture, as far back as Genesis, even in the house of Judah, who unwittingly impregnated his daugher-in-law, believing her a harlot when he had intercourse with her. Let's just say, of that situation, it was complicated.
Interestingly, the Lord Jesus is a direct descendant of one of the twin boys born of that physical union (see Matthew 1:3 and Luke 3:33). Depending upon how one reads, Boaz, who married Ruth the Moabitess, and was the great-grandfather of King David, may himself been conceived out of wedlock.
Finally, the Lord Himself was not conceived in the usual way, and his mother was thought a fornicator (see John 8:41), and his earthly father Joseph was presumed a cuckold.
It would seem God regards illegitimacy differently than do we, and this is not a new phenomenon. Upon seeing a 13-year-old Ishmael, Abraham's son by her handmaid Hagar) mocking the newborn Isaac, whom she bore to Abraham, Sarah declared that Ishmael would not be an heir alongside Isaac, and petitioned her husband to cast out Hagar and Ishmael.
Perhaps Sarah could not separate the child's conception from how she blieved his life should be, and what it should contain. That thinking remains common even to this day...but it has never been God's thinking.
How we view people, if based upon anything they could not control, says much more about us than it says regarding the person at whom we are looking. The same is true regarding our view of people that overlooks how they handled those things that are in their control.
The Lord, unsurprisingly, has much to say about the raising of children...and most of it falls on either deaf or confused ears.
That many still regard the children given them as reflections of themselves lies at the root of many problems. It is easy and customary to say that a child "looks like" a parent or other family member and somehow conclude that might be an indication of the person that they are. How foolish.
If Adam and Eve were once the same body, yet they had different minds, different souls, and indeed were not the same person, how is it that someone that God fashioned in a womb for some 40 weeks must be like...anyone else?
We do children a disservice, we risk messing up their lives, when we choose to what we want for children and, effectively, blame God's word, rather than do as God says with children, properly raising them...and ourselves.
The most effective way to address most problems is to stop them at their source....when that is possible. So, how does one address a problem whose source is unassailable?
Human lust has been with man since Eden. While its results are experienced and, sometimes countered, its presence continues. Even when it appears eradicated in one area, that usually means it simply shifts to another.
Interestingly, I cannot recall God calling for lust to be eradicated, or indicating that all lust is bad. Perhaps, instead of trying to remove lust, it is better to simply put it to good use.
