“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! Deuteronomy 6:4 (NKJV)
Would a loving God do this? Did God’s harsh dealings with those who worshiped false gods in ancient times contradict His being a loving God?
Who is He a loving God to but His own? Where do we find mercy, grace and enduring love directed generously to but to His own?
In destroying the enemies of His own is this not an extension of the destruction seen in Noah’s day? Who were those He destroyed from the earth? Is He not going to do the same again? Luke 17:26
Does the Father not have a goal to achieve? Will He not achieve it?
Look around you. What is worshiped, what is revered, where are men’s hearts? WE, His own, wrestle with carnality when carnality should have died in us.
Like the thrashings of a dying man our carnality is in its death knell. The rattle of last breaths, of anger, bitterness and harsh reactions is dying in those who are His. It is a terminal condition filled with hope for any who wish to live like new. For “all things become new..”
Is it not a process? Let us pursue the process of dying unto living and that living be a reflection of life in the kingdom and eternity. Let us live now like Him, having received through Christ, knowledge, by grace and peace, and all things pertaining to life and godliness. 2 Peter 1: 2-4
Both needs must be met. Not just one. Life and godliness.
Do not say, “It is not possible!”
Let your eyes and heart be lifted up to your potential and your calling in Him!
Amen and amen.
“If we remain in His grip, how far from His heart can we be!”
In the guardianship of Christ,
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
