In pefecting the multi-message blog, we speak of many things!!! But the message became clear to me!!! I did not go to Church this Sunday!!! I couldn't find the right spirit for it!!! And let's open a subject before we become vain in our thoughts!!! 1Corinthinan 7:1-7, ["...1Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. 6But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. 7For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that..."] Now I would think this is just for married people and it is message about marriage for everyone because each is eithier male or female and God has created us biological creatures capable of reproduction. And this is more for prevention, before you fall away and think you can get away with adultery or fornication, and a life after divorce. You will not get away!!! And this is about the facts about being human and being responsible and responsible for our actions. If you marry you are there to stay!!! So avoid it!!! If you can!!! And if you must know how to be responsible and know what happens in marriage!!! And everything God has created is wonderful and marriage is no exception!!! But be sure the freind you entertain is someone you can endure for life, a particular long spell!!! If you are self-centered, don't marry!!! Married people for ever servants to themselves and then to the children who come along and then take care of your aging parents!!! What a spell isn't it???!!! But God loves married people but hates adulterers and their adulterated reasoning for doing what they do!!! Do do it!!! Treat your mate shameful!!! I will not be well for you!!! And God hates divorce!!! So that about sums it up!!! One message!!! I can talk what I was going to write about in an another time and opportunity!!! Be blessed. Amen. thbg
In looking at the 'tulips' in the picture, I just got to think that things can become anew and fresh again!!! And if we come with a clean slate before God, then new prosperiy will overtake us without a hitch!!!
But if we go and harbor lasciviousness and plain immorality and pretend we are clean, we decieve ourselves and we really don't really know God at all!!!
["...1The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2Stand in the gate of the LORD's house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of the LORD, all ye of Judah, that enter in at these gates to worship the LORD.
3Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
4Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these.
5For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;
6If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt:
7Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.
8Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit.
9Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not;
10And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations?
11Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD..."]
And the Lord does not pretend the doesn't see, he sees everything we pretend and do!!! And if we say, "This is Christian...!" And "This is Christian...!" And we don't abide in God words we deceive ourselves!!! Free speech??? Fine!!! But don't stumble others with you!!! Keep the error to yourself!!!
And the sum of the matter is that we want to go places!!! But we can't take this ball and chain of sin with us!!! Hebrews...
May you be blessed. Amen.
Going back to the 'tulips' and why couldn't they be Easter Lilys??? Let's look at something that he told Mary his earthly mother, that he came to make all things anew!!! And the old way has passed away and the new has come!!! And Jesus renews his tender mercy for us everyday for those who have repented of their vanity and accepted him what the Cross means!!!...
But nevertheless we have to repent of our sins and not try to explain and condoned them away!!!...
May you be blessed. Amen.
And mulling over this, Isaiah 43:19 and 48:6,
["...19Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert..."]
["... 6Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them..."]
And there something very wonderful hidden here and great opposition getting here!!! And the Lord says I will do a new thing!!! Thing will begin to sprout like in Spring and what wonderful coincidence that it is now Spring and Easter!!! And here the Lord back in Isaiah proclaimed his wonderful work on the Cross in Spring, that is Easter, namely Passover season!!!
And the hidden things will become clear!!! And we did not know them that God would come to earth and redeem us!!! God becoming a Servant!!! And that is a new thing!!!
Concluding with Habbakkuk 1:4-5,
["...4Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
5Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you..."]
And the Lord made it impossible to believe that he would be a Servant!!! Now a terrible God a Servant???!!! And then a Servant to ascend to Glory and save his elect and the scoffers the Servant would cast into the flaming hell fire!!! Now who could believe that??? That someone born of a Virgin would ascend to Heaven from a mislea town Galilee???...
Now that is not fair!!! But God prophesyed that we would not believe it!!! And we still don't believe it that the Lord reins to send a whole bunch into hell!!!
May you be blessed. Amen.
