MORNINGTIME 2715
 
Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that THE LORD he IS GOD in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: THERE IS NONE ELSE. THOU SHALT KEEP therefore HIS STATUTES, AND his COMMANDMENTS, which I command thee this day, THAT IT MAY GO WELL WITH THEE, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever. Deuteronomy 4:39-40. This all comes down to, "He made this place, and He gets to make the Rules". For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and HIS COMMANDMENTS ARE NOT GRIEVOUS. 1 John 5:3. This same warning, with sternness, is the same as a Loving Father telling his little boy no to go play in the street. The command not to play in the street, alone, should be reason enough NOT to play in the street. But today, in this generation, we have to know WHY He doesn't want us to play in the street, and THEN we'll consider His Request and WE will decide if it's worth listening to, OR NOT. We ARE a stiff-necked and hard hearted people. Of everything the Lord Commands, we get to decide if it's a good request or not. Yes, we actually have given ourselves the Right to listen, or not, to obey, or not, because some of those rules DON'T APPLY TO US TODAY. Remember, things were different "back then" and probably don't apply to us today. This is a worldly attitude and is a result of us, MAKING US GODS UNTO OURSELVES. When, "God Says", and we say, "I'll think about it, I'll get back to you on that", IF you consider yourself a "Christian", you're running on very thin ice if you actually try to run your life with this line of thinking. Isn't your life in a good enough mess right now, that just maybe you should take a step back AND EXAMINE EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND WHO REALLY IS IN CHARGE? Is it you? Or is it God? If it's you, YOU'RE PLAYING PIN THE TAIL ON THE DONKEY IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BUSY INTERSTATE. Repent of YOUR ways, and do things His Way, and, Be Blessed.
