Whoever says to the guilty, “You are innocent,” will be cursed by peoples and denounced by nations. But it will go well with those who convict the guilty, and rich blessing will come on them. Proverbs 24:24-25
Jehu the seer, the son of Hanani, went out to meet him and said to the king, “Should you help the wicked and love those who hate the LORD? Because of this, the wrath of the LORD is on you. 2 Chronicles 19:1-3
Not too long ago, a powerful leader after years of pandering back and forth and literally dangling of the fence made a historical statement and acknowledgment. His statement went ahead to condone a certain lifestyle (that the bible warned against) and serve as a catalyst to the defiant promotion of anti-biblical values. In the typical ‘politically correct’ influenced way of living and speaking in these parts of the world, he gave his pallid reasons for his choice. The reasons for his choice were even sadder than the choice itself. Yet the bunch of us sat and swallowed the putrid pill as it were.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness,since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. Romans 1:17-19
My cries of frustration however, did not fall on deaf ears. Some sympathetic folks consoled me, by assuring me that based on his needs and position, he did what he had to do. There goes that refrain once again. The only thing any human has to do is acknowledge the sovereignty of God Almighty. Out of that ‘do’ flows wisdom, peace, favor and anything else we need to live a productive, fruitful and peaceful life. It does not mean trials won’t come, it just means you won’t sink when they do. And just for restorative measures, you might emerge better of than when you went into the trial or when the trial came into you whichever way it occurred.
I bet if you asked that poor deceived leader mentioned above if it was okay that any of ‘his’ went the way that he condoned, there is some percentage of a chance that he might knock you out. How do I know? His speech and expectations when the cameras are not rolling might betray him. But enough of this subject leader, we can only pray for him now. But here is the real reason of this blog. When he made that acceptance and agreement publicly, he released the spirit behind the lifestyle to legally operate on him and on anything concerning him.
Each one went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, without turning as they went. Ezekiel 1:11-13
Yes, the real world is the ‘spirit world’. Our tangible world, merely reacts to what has been released in the spirit. That is why demonic spirits possess people to carry out their wishes just like the Holy Spirit leads people to usher in and propel forward: God’s will. When one sees a lie and knowingly calls it truth, or tampers with justice as they jubilantly reward the wicked whilst they persecute (or so they think) the righteous. They are merely signing a legal and spiritual contract inviting whatever evil and wickedness they are in cahoots with to inundate their lives and expectations.
Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful… Revelation 21:26-27
Why do you think God went to such extent to purchase salvation and redemption for us? He could have easily just said “enter in with all your garbage I have the authority to forgive as a merciful God.” But He did not, because the ‘wages of sin is death’ and we had sinned ourselves into impending death sentences. Only a blood sacrifice of a spotless and blemish lacking lamb would suffice. Since killing a billion lambs on a daily basis was not plausible, he made the one time, all-time, all atoning sacrifice. Legally we were ‘toast’ considering what hell-fire would have done to our stubborn flesh. But God did the ‘Easter Parade’ all by Himself and today we have hope.
So to those that would “Cut their noses to spite their face”, go ahead and stone Jesus as you request Barabbas be released. Remember that Barnabas never repented of his theft. He will be coming after his/her ardent supporters and their goodies. Don’t just take my word for it, ask The Authority…
He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Proverbs 28:12-14
It is not good to be partial to the wicked and so deprive the innocent of justice. Proverbs 18:4-6
