THE CONFIRMED DESTINY OF ALL THE EARTH
Part 14: Who Do You Choose? Man Or God
Peace be unto you. Noah came crying and pleading that the world and its people were consumed with sin. However none sought repentance and looked upon Noah a man of righteousness as crazy. The Righteousness of Noah Page
In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth
Editors Note: My beloved Brethren. Our prayer always is for peace and love upon all the land and the salvation of all of humankind. Thus we remind you that the time of the final destiny of all the earth is near not far. We also remind you that as Noah the Great Prophets and John The Baptist walked, talked and wrote by inspiration and were called Fool’s so has the FreedomJournaPress been taunted and labeled as full of Folly and Foolish. However the Bible bears out that Noah and his partners in service to the Lord were not Foolish. Just what will History record concerning the FreedomJournalPress?
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere and those that believe in the Bible as the Supreme authority of God’s Laws. For the record and the sign post many people that confess to be Christians are now during these trying times looking to man, materialism and God knows what as additional authorities on how to get to Heaven. Glory be to God our Father and to His Son our Savior Christ Jesus blessed by the Holy Spirit.
As we continue our discussion from the previous Epistle we now see another theme, the clear choice between God or man.
Many during these days know
nothing of honor nor of the
honor among the saints of
God that will suffer sweet
death before bowing down
Now the song birds are silent
as they only see sad songs
of the lost that bow and
crawl prostrate before money
barons and find temporary joy
The song writer chose a beautiful woman. Bobby Womack a left handed guitar player and vocalist cried out “I choose you baby.” The believer who knew and appreciated his history from the slave cotton field songs to the Spirituals that paved the way for the Blues and that music called Jazz also made his choice. He had Jesus on his mind and Jesus he chose as his winner and not man. So did Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego the three Hebrew boys. In so doing they defeated death. Womack only had a good woman; we hope she was like Lightnin Hopkins who said “Rosa Mae is a good girl she didn’t run around at night.” But the saints who chose Jesus will have life everlasting.
Daniel 3: 16-18: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.”
“If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O, King.”
“But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.”
As we look at the word careful in verse 16 we see that it did not mean anything sarcastic. However as believers in God they did not believe their fate was dependant on any speech or defense they would make.
They did not know the Lord’s will. Remember when we discussed Paul (II Corinthians 1: 9-10) who confronted a similar circumstance. Paul nor did the Hebrew boys know if it was God’s will to take them home at the time they confronted death. But if they would be delivered it would not be based on any plea from them.
So at verse 18 they gave the king their ultimatum. Regardless as to the will of God regarding a miracle they would not serve the gods of king Nebuchadnezzar nor would they worship the golden image. Are you strong enough to withstand the temptation to just follow the crowd at a mega-church that is filled with false teaching? How do you know that most church goers are lost? What is a church goer? Are they the same people that play church?
