MORNINGTIME 3642by Benjamin Munsell on December 14, 2020
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the Disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, (this new upstart church) whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a Light from Heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do. And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink. Acts 9:1-6, 9. Saul, the no-nonsense religious leader was determined to keep the Church of his day as Holy and Pure as he could. He was determined to crush all Atheists and keep the Radicals out of the Church. And he was coming hard after this new bunch of radical Atheists who would not follow and conform to the proper church teaching of the day, a teaching that had been around for thousands of years. There was no room in his church for people running around preaching about drinking blood and eating some dead guys flesh, to get into Heaven. The Scribes, Pharisees and Sadducees had the Church religious doctrine of the day locked up and no one was going to change it. Think about it, the Bible of their day, as they understood it, WAS THE STANDARD BY WHICH ALL OF LIFE'S JUDGMENTS WAS MADE, and anyone preaching anything outside of Biblical Doctrine was severely dealt with. WHERE ARE THE RELIGIOUS LEADERS, PREACHERS AND TEACHERS TODAY WHO WILL JUDGE DOCTRINE AND "ACCEPTABLE" CHURCH TEACHINGS, AGAINST THE GOD BREATHED HOLY SPIRIT DISCERNMENT OF THE BIBLE TODAY? Come to Christ, and, Be Blessed.
