MORNINGTIME 3869by Benjamin Munsell on October 27, 2021
All we (humans) like sheep have gone astray (living in sin); we have turned every one to his own way (of the world for answers); and the Lord hath laid on (Christ) the iniquity of us all (mankind). (Christ) was oppressed, and He was afflicted (tortured and beat to a bloody pulp), yet He opened not His mouth, (He didn't complain or resist their beating): He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, SO HE OPENETH NOT HIS MOUTH. Isaiah 53:6-7. This is an "examine yourself" question that only you can answer. In the possibly near future, at what point, or to what degree, if any, do you "defend" yourself against those who would do you harm and hurt? Some christians have a house full of guns and ammo and will die defending their "Rights" as American Citizens. Others will offer no resistance whatsoever. If Christ truly is our Perfect Example, and He offered NO resistance when they came to kill Him, should we do, our not do, the same? Again, this is totally between you and the Lord. Is our Job to go out unto all nations AND PREACH THE GOSPEL, in spite of "their" intentions to stop us? As sheep dumb before the slaughter, does it really matter if we Preach The word to a lost friend, or to those deceived and lost under the hand of the Great Whore? Let's ask this, if you go to Preach The Word, in Obedience to the Leading of the Holy Spirit, does it really make ANY difference what they do to Be Saved, or to kill those bringing the Good News? Here's a thought to Encourage you, NO ONE can touch even a hair or your head, except the Lord allows it. You WILL NOT DIE, until the Father calls you Home. If the Lord is in charge of your Life, is He also in charge of your Death? And if so, WHY RESIST? This is all about YOUR Faith with the Lord, this is as personal as it gets, and only you and the Lord know your answer to these questions. Although, when and how you die may be seen by many, and your Faith will Testify of how you will, Be Blessed.
