MORNINGTIME 3887by Benjamin Munsell on November 23, 2021
By Humility and the Fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life. He that hath a Bountiful Eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor. Proverbs 22:4,9. He that hath pity upon the poor Lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will He pay him again. The Fear of the Lord tendeth to Life: and he that hath It shall abide Satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. Proverbs 19:17,23. Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads. As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: FEAR THEM NOT, NEITHER BE DISMAYED at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. Ezekiel 3:8-9. Ezekiel is talking about the forehead of the Believer being tough enough to stand against the unbelief and insults (of the lost) being thrown at the Believer. Even as Believers are generous and share their time, money and talent with the unbelievers, the Lord makes the Believers tough enough, and strong enough, to keep Loving the lost no matter how "bad" it gets against the Believers. Christ and His Love through us to a lost and dying world doesn't stop because of a few insults, or even the threat of death itself. BELIEVERS WON'T QUIT, but the phonies will, and they're the ones who give real Believers a bad name. But then, that's Satan's tactic, trying to make Believers look bad. Again, Christians will reflect Christ no matter how hard "Sharing Christ" may get. Believers, hang in there, it's all about Christ and what HE has done for us. And whatever DOES get done to us HAS TO GO THROUGH THE THRONE ROOM FIRST, or else it isn't happening. "Daddy" Himself will call us Home IN HIS TIME, not hateful man's time. Share Christ with all you can and leave the rest up to the Lord, He's got the Perfect Plan for all Things. Do your part, and go Home a Happy Camper, to Joyfully hear those Words, "Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the Joy of thy Lord". What a Way to forever, Be Blessed.
