MORNINGTIME 3756by Benjamin Munsell on May 21, 2021
After the (sinful) doings of the (people of the) land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, SHALL YE NOT DO: and after the (sinful lifestyle) doings of the (people of the) land of Canaan, whither I bring you, SHALL YE NOT DO: NEITHER SHALL YE WALK IN THEIR (UNLAWFUL) ORDINANCES. Ye shall do My Judgments, and keep Mine Ordinances, to Walk therein: I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD. Ye shall therefore KEEP MY STATUTES, AND MY JUDGMENTS: which if a man do, (AND) HE SHALL LIVE in them: I am the Lord. Leviticus 18:3-5. (Do not follow and do the sinful practices and laws of the land that oppose Me and My Laws). Sanctify yourselves therefore, AND BE YE HOLY: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall KEEP MY STATUTES, AND DO THEM: I am the Lord which Sanctify (to set apart as sacred, consecrate, dedicate) you. Leviticus 20:7-8. A New Heart also will I give you, and a New Spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put My (Holy) Spirit within you, and cause you to Walk in My Statutes, AND YE SHALL KEEP MY JUDGMENTS, AND DO THEM. Ezekiel 36:26-27. Verily, verily, I (Jesus) say unto you, If a man keep My Saying, (doctrine, teaching), he shall never see (Spiritual) death. John 8:51. But THE LORD IS FAITHFUL, who shall (es)stablish you, AND (TO) KEEP YOU FROM EVIL. 2 Thessalonians 3:3. The Lord is Calling all people to Follow and Obey His Laws, Rules and Regulations. He will even give us a New Heart to DESIRE to Obey Him. And if we do these things, He will keep us from falling for, or into, Sin. We have His Word on it. When man's word contradicts God's Word, ALWAYS go with God's Word, and Joyfully, Peacefully, suffer the consequences. A little "pain" for now is much better than great pain for ALL of Eternity. It actually is easier to Obey the Lord the first time, than to fight to disobey Him every time. Simply Follow Christ in Joyful Obedience unto Life Eternal, and your Eternal Life will, Be Blessed.
