Part 4: God Moves The Righteous
Editors Note: Beloved the Prophet Jeremiah pleaded to God regarding the persecution he endured by the leaders of his time and the ungodly people. Find this at Jeremiah 15:15; also read and study the bracket of scriptures 15-18. We will conclude the insightful series of Epistles on "Notes On The Black Family Guilt, Hate and Control” with a look at Jeremiah and the parallels of his persecution and those that stand with God and write about Truth during the time in which we now live; 2009. What will be the fate of the persecutors of the FreedomJournal? What is the confirmed destiny of those that stand with God? We plea to the Lord just as Jeremiah did, to free us from the wicked and ungodly persecution of our enemies who are the enemies of God. In America there is a Free Market Place willed by Almighty God. Those that seek to exclude the small, the alleged weak, from an honest dollar are blind and are lost. We bear witness that as the Spirit of God descends upon the righteous, there is also an evil Spirit, remember Saul and also remember David.
In the name of Almighty God, Master of the universe Ruler of all the earth
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
Beloved as we continue to follow the Spirit we will review a subject that has a great bearing on this writer and the FreedomJournal. We will also see how the Spirit also impacts on the love of man and woman.
There are several scriptures in Judges that give us a scriptural base for the Spirit descending upon man. Therefore, we advise you to read and study the verses at Judges 3: 8-10; 6: 34 and 14: 6. We also note that God has often used the power of the Spirit among unbelievers to do a task thus see II Chronicles 36: 22-23. However, follow us to I Samuel where Samuel anoints Saul to be king. We suggest that you read the entire chapter (10) while our primary verses are 1, 6, 9-10.
I Samuel 10: 1: “Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it on this head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the Lord hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?”
Let the record show that olive oil was used in many ways (food etc. by the people of the Old Testament and New Testament times. Thus, a practice and custom came about regarding pouring oil on the head of a person that was recognized in a special position. We also note that this same oil was also poured over inanimate objects that were set apart for special purposes. (For further scriptural references see: Genesis 28: 18; Leviticus 2: 1; 8: 12; 10:7; 21: 10; and II King 9: 6)
Meanwhile, the use of oil in the Old Testament has given rise to the figurative use of oil today. (Hebrews 1: 9). However, olive oil is only symbolic and has no special power.
I Samuel 10: 6: “And the spirit of the Lord will come upon thee, and thou shall prophesy with them, and shall be turned into another man.”
Inspiration involved the Spirit of the Lord coming upon someone. Saul was thus turned into another man a change from an uninspired man to an inspired man. At this point we remind you to remember our primary character Samson and love. Samson as was Saul filled with the Spirit, but left God and committed ungodly acts. In some instances we see that the Spirit was not always permanent. But was this the case in the life and times of Samson and Saul? Now look with us at our final verses brought up for review.
I Samuel 10: 9-10: “And it was so, that when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, God gave him another heart: and all those signs came to pass that day.”
“And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him, and the spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them.”
The end had now come to the meeting of Samuel and Saul. The events predicted by Samuel began to happen. Also, Saul received another heart from the Lord. Prophets did not always speak toward the future. The primary job God has assigned them is to inspire the brethren toward faithfulness and repentance.
So as the Spirit of God came upon him he prophesied. He had become inspired. Samson had been inspired from the womb. What does this inspiration have to do with Love?
The Inspired Can See God And Love
I count my blessings as I see
Samson and Saul. I left only for
a little while, because the righteous
can only see God while embracing
a Godly woman.
I captured my pen in flight as my
conversion revealed that the Spirit
is upon it. Thus, it is not for a season
but as long as I stay with God. Will
the love of a Godly woman assist the will,
Of the Spirit? Has God sent Godly
mates to help those called to a High
Calling? The Spirit thus came over me
and I rejoiced in it. This same Spirit
allowed me to see love.
I prayed this morning not for riches
and gold, but for patience, faith and
things of repentance and forgiveness.
All the while thanking God for His son
our Savior Christ Jesus and for the Holy Spirit.
Help us O’ Lord as we are in the flesh.
So when the Delilah’s the Jezebel’s come
strengthen me to endure. As there are
many storms that are yet to rage, but by
inspiration of the Spirit we see God and Love.
