MORNINGTIME 3860by Benjamin Munsell on October 14, 2021
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two Commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22:37-40. The Lord's Ways are very simple and easy to follow, if we would just Trust and Obey. He allows Chastening and Chastisement along with great Mercy and Grace as we follow His Ways, AND as we step out of His Ways. He is well able to keep us in line with His Heart's Desire for us to Follow Him and to Be Blessed by Him. The trouble starts when we decide to not follow His Ways. And if it's not the Lord's Ways, we default down to man's ways, and that's where the trouble really starts. Man's sinful nature loves to control others for their own personal benefit. Just look around at all the laws, rules and mandates man is making for personal gain. Satan is out to deceive, divide, distract and destroy all and whomever he can. Keep in mind, Satan can ONLY deceive those who WANT to be deceived, those who will accept any lie as long as they don't have to hear The Truth. They PURPOSELY avoid God's Way, so they can continue to do things, their way. Their way leads straight to Hell. And without the Lord, it will continue to get worse. HAVE NO FEAR, CHRIST IS STILL ON THE THROWN, and He will continue to keep ALL His Spiritually Safe in Him. Physically, we'll, that may be another story. He WILL get us across the Finish Line and into Heaven. This body may be a wreck and fall away, as always happens with things made of dirt. Do your best to Follow His two Commands, keep your Eyes on Him, your Faith in Full, and Rejoice when you hear those most wonderful Words, Well done thou Blessed of the Lord, enter into My Presence, the whole Family of Christ is waiting to greet you. You've Fought the Good Fight, it's time to receive your Crown of Life Eternal. Enter in, and, Be Blessed.
