MORNINGTIME 2416
 
For ye shall pass over Jordan to go in to possess the land WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVETH YOU, and ye shall possess it, and dwell therein. And ye shall observe to do all the statutes and judgments which I set before you this day. Deuteronomy 11:31-32. No matter where we go and what we do, there will always be rules to follow. If you're alive, you're following rules put in place by someone. There is a system of government around us that makes new rules just about every day as we are always hopeful that these rules are good rules for our benefit. Whether these rules are good rules for our benefit, our bad rules meant for our destruction, we will always have rules around us and there is no escaping that fact. We know we have rules and we are hopeful they will be for our benefit. RULES ARE EVERYWHERE! Here's where the trouble starts. God comes on the scene and He puts up His Hand and says, "Guys, I have a few rules of My Own I want you to live by, but it's OK, they are all for your good and meant to be a benefit to you in good ways, come gather around and I'll tell them to you". (Right here is where you'll see people's true heart attitudes towards God, and it generally isn't very petty). WORLDLINESS will show itself as Rebellion against God. CHRISTLIKENESS will show itself as Absolute Love and Obedience towards God and His Christ. EVERYTHING, and this means every thing, can be judged by this rule to show you your real Heart Attitude towards The Lord, period. Everything the Lord says, is for our good. And everything "The World" says is for our destruction, to pull us away from the Lord. This is what EVERYTHING in life comes down to, God Based Rules to Bless man Eternally, or man's rules to get man away from God, eternally. Man's rules have to be "sugar coated" just to get man to follow them. Our inborn sense of right and wrong won't let us enjoy wrong, unless we sugar coat them. Why not just give up fighting God, do things His Way, and, Be Blessed???
