We Have Killed The People
Mistrust; Guilty As Charged
Numbers 16:39-42 to be a memorial unto the children of Israel, that no stranger, which is not of the seed of Aaron, come near to offer incense before the Lord; that he be not as Korah, and as his company: as the Lord said to him by the hand of Moses. But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, ye have killed the people of the Lord. And it came to pass, when the congregation was gathered against Moses and against Aaron that they looked toward the tabernacle of the congregation: and behold, the cloud covered it, and the glory of the Lord appeared.
Psalm 24:1-6 the earth is the Lordís and the fullness thereof; the world and all that dwell therein. For He hath founded it upon the seas and established it upon the floods, who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His holy place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessings from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation them that seek him that seek thy face O Jacob, Selah.
And We Wonder Why Our World Is So Messed Up;
Look at the allegations of the children that have been abused in the world. Look at the fact that what they really need is to be protected. In the beginning God made man after creating them separate and apart; man and woman. Man represented mankind; the human race. We are made in the image of God and we are capable of knowing God and returning His love. Godís love is not sexual or physical, but spiritual. If someone says they love you it must first be spiritual; the love of God which cannot be abused physically. If it is physically induced then itís not love. There exist in the world abuse that is hidden in the closet in every sense of the word. I am not talking about physical or sexual abuse either. I am talking about the spirit of abuse that comes to rob man of all that God has given that we may survive in this world. There is a spirit out in the entire world that Satan has instituted that we must be rich; the rich get richer and the poor poorer. It is a spirit that will take even the wealthiest man to hell; for they cannot buy their way in.
From one end of the world to the other end we find the same issues going on. The United States, the United Kingdom and all the rest of the nations across the world is plagued by this get rich spirit that steals, kills, and destroys man and the human race collectively. If we lie, we will steal and if we steal we will kill. It is out of desperation that one wants to stay rich that they will keep the poor being subjective to them rather than God. Riches gets one so wrapped up in pride of having it that it brings one a lust to himself to have it no matter whom else doesnít. In government races all over the world they face the same issues. The heart of God is not a consideration when it comes to politics. This is a worldwide problem and it has killed the structure God has set forth for man in the earth. The love of money has caused men to kill one another or keep one so bound by not having it whereas to look upon those that has it as gods. Money answers all things in the earth but not in heaven. Money will cause one to lose their soul.
We donít know where we came from;
Genesis 1:26 and God said let us make man in our image, after our likeness. What is God like? God is a Spirit being that cannot be classified with other like objects. It seems futile to attempt a logical definition of God. What Scripture reveals about God serves to give us a description of Him adequate to our present powers of conception and to our present needs. We know that God depends on no one for his existence and has everything else dependent on Him for its existence. He is the most exalted Being, than whom no better being can possibly exist, or be imagined.
God is a Spirit and he created man a Spirit Being first like unto himself. John 4:24 says God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. In Numbers 16:22 God stood up to the people and they fell upon their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? God created and made man so He knows how and when to move the covering from man and reveal his iniquity. God gives to every man a time of repentance. He gives us a time to come and trust Him and know that He is the first and last, the beginning and end, and the alpha and omega and he will have the last word concerning his created being. After that last word man would have spoken the flesh dies and goes back to the dust and the Spirit God put in man that made him become a living soul will return to the one that gave it. Because we donít know where we came from we are selling our soul short to the Devil. Seek for God, Know your maker, and Love yourself.
What God has done for us is hard to believe
John 3:16 for God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever would believe on Him shall be saved. We have an assuredness that the Lord will look down from Heaven and He will again come and see about us. Is there any that will believe? Is there any that will trust God rather than man? The Lord is our light and our salvation. He gave us sight not only to see but to discern also. He gave us salvation because we were created saved. We were made man and woman that didnít know we were male or female until we failed to know who we really were. We give up a lot when we fail to obey God, His Word, and His Spirit.
Because God loved us so much and man failed to keep their integrity before him we encounter things that we were never intended to deal with. God preparing a body of flesh for His Word to come in to redeem us from our own self destruction was Him showing grace and mercy toward his created and made beings. This was restoration of the once lost relationship between God and man. Man is dominated by the appetites of the flesh and because of this they fail to obey Godís Word daily. God put in man an appetite for Him and man was only to know God, man knew not that the woman with him was flesh but spirit.
Itís time to stop running and be restored to right relationship with God spiritually. We are who we are spiritually not naturally. We can obtain status in the world, but this world is not our eternal home. The earth is a resting place for the dead, but heaven an eternal resting place for those that die in Christ. We by human nature mistakenly deny that God exists but we donít have to remain guilty as charged. Itís time we come to know who God is and love Him as He has loved us. We deprive ourselves of what really matter in life and thatís Christ because we donít understand our make-up. Man naturally desire to be understood because they donít understand themselves.
Redemption is here for us. We live in a world where all of our actions affect someone especially those that we love and care about. The redemptive process brings us to realize how we will hurt the next person, our loved one, our neighbor or one far away if we follow our own way. We must realize that we need help in the process of restoration in this life. I am responsible for my own actions. If I cause pain or hurt to someone else; itís not their fault for I have choices. Jesus had a choice to not go to the Cross, he had a choice to come down off the Cross, and he had the choice to deny the Father and us redemption for man. I have a responsibility to respect my fellowman; to have love and tolerance toward one another. Salvation is an inside job that works its way to the outside. We have it backwards, we want to look saved on the outside but inside the heart is filled with dead man bones. We love to be seen and heard and this keeps Godís best from us for we become an idol which is an enemy to God.
We cannot trust each other anymore. Motives stand out more than works. God says to trust me, draw near to me. If we can believe that Christ was crucified and raised on the third day, we shall be saved. If we endure all the way to the end of our days in Christ then we will be saved. Endurance is called for; not in today and out of Christ tomorrow. Endurance means we continue to sustain, prevail, stay, persist, and how we bear up through the suffering. We have to have some fortitude, tolerance, perseverance and stamina. We withstand the temptations of the Devil, maintain our salvation no matter what comes or goes in our life. We maintain our faith in God by upholding the Word and sustaining a lifestyle that pleases God. We support God by affirming and defending His Word. We say what the Word says and declare that God is God. We keep Godís Word, His Commandments and reach out to save as many as will accept Christ. This is in keeping in step with God all the way to Heaven.
Deliverance however is a process and it is a must have for the Christian. We must stay with God not just come to him. We are now in a fight for our soul so why donít we understand that the flesh is the material body as distinct from the soul or spirit. All beings possessed with flesh; mankind is frequently in contrast with God who is Spirit. Because of our setting we are never satisfied. The flesh, soul, and spirit of man all must be submitted to God as its Creator. This is our satisfaction; pleasing God rather than pleasing man. In our struggles the desire to please God enables us to learn to say no to sin. Manís steps are ordered by God and we must strive every day to make the steps required to bring us to stand in front of Godís Throne one day pure and Holy. We must continue to confess that we are sinners saved by grace and we are not better than our neighbor. That mindset is demonic; which is an evil spirit that the heathen of this great society set forth in the world.
Manís own deficiencies cause them to not realize their bad habits so we donít face them and deal with accordingly that we maintain our salvation. Guess what this demon doesnít plan on going anywhere. But when we repent although we are not perfect we strive to perfection in Christ Jesus. We must be quick to repent; itís a part of our Christian make-up. What is it that controls our every step? This is a personal question; in all of our steps we are to live peaceably with all men and holiness without which no man shall see God. We must bring the ďMEĒ factor in subjection. Sure we face life changing struggles but how do we handle the changes? Do we allow things to hinder or control us? Well if so itís time to allow God to control our next move. Be it known that the good have to suffer for the bad.
Do you want to walk in the image of God? Do you want to stop killing your soul and the souls of other people? We donít have to be mistrusted and found guilty as charged of killing people and he work of God. Share the wonder about God. Know today that you are justified and set free!
