If we see a huge accumulation of treasure, say a room full of treasure, we may think it is awesome. But when God sees that, it is nothing but a bunch of worms and full of crap. But when he turns a little far from it, he finds so little things that nobody saw it before. Nobody can even know it is there. Something for him it is more than gold and silver that he calls it his treasure.
Then he will make it the decorator of his kingdom with his delight. He will make it greater than of all things on earth since he has found faithful in it. But as for that mountain of wickedness, that evil in God's sight that looks like a huge treasure in the eyes of men, as for that he couldn't wait till he washed it away with flood gnashing from the ocean.
As for that rubbish thing in his eye, he couldn't wait as fire comes from the heavens and swallow it alive. As for that he couldn't wait till his anger consumes it with rage. God said, "Where can I find such valuable things? Where can I hide them till I come again and take them with me?"
He said, "I know where to keep them. I will hide them from the madness of this earth. I will lead them out of the valley of darkness."
The idea of LOVE between a man and woman is faithfulness. It is not LOVE if there is no faithfulness between them. It is all to represent the LOVE of Christ to us. But yet how can the evil deceived Eve and then Adam?
I think pleasure as in sex has come to play for Adam listening to Eve and not God. I think the idea of power has come to play for Evil to deceive Eve since she wants to know something more powerful than her, something beyond her God given imagination.
Something only God thinks and decides. Even the punishment goes with it makes her a little less than she was originally. That she will be always under the control and supervision of the man. And the man cursed by God that he will eat his lunch with pain and dinner in agony because of too much labor and hard work.
Faithfulness is not to be smart and do what you think is right. Faithfulness is to wait for the Lord and to listen what God said all the time. Does she want the power that is taken from her back? I believe so. As man want to live in a non-troublesome and non-tiresome world where he wants to get relief from a world in which he toils and toils and doesn't get as much as he should get.
But yet there is still hope even in this world. Jesus has been sent to us to free us from our bondage. He is sent to bring a blessing instead of the curse that is already on us. But we must be all obedient children of God. Not one driven with passion without wisdom. But yet how can the abused live a life of freedom. Abuse is one thing that has got to do with power. It is an act of selfishness and not LOVE.
Revenge is something inevitable for the abused by God, even if it is a lifetime task - To meet power with power, punishment for the wicked. But it is not by the hand of man, but with God. Now the evil presented a false power before the real true power comes.
That is the trick he used all the time to steal us the real blessings that comes from the Lord. The evil present its own things when three things are on the way to come. The evil presented false blessings when true blessings are about to come. The evil brought yo
, and there is a time for everything.
So watch out for the time and wait faithfully the true visitation of the Lord. Just know the truth and the truth shall set you free. What a short but powerful statement of the word of God. May is probably the most important.
Why we need to be faithful? How we can be faithful? How we shall seek life and not death? Why, we shall know the truth? Why, we shall forsake our own foolish ways and gain some wisdom? How to break the kingdom of darkness? All these are revealed to us by the Holy Spirit if we ask for the truth and nothing but the truth.
Passion with no wisdom in it, it will bring a great destruction. I saw passion and wisdom and power, but there was not the fear of God in it. So there it was a great destruction of those people who want to build a great building for their name.
I saw evil getting the opportunity to use the passion of someone else and change it into great destruction. That was again because there was no love in it and it was all about selfishness. I saw LOVE in all its fullness and there was no the fear of God in it and it brings a lot of grief to the person. I saw passion to live a meaningful life by serving others for the benefit of others and thereby serving God and bring personal satisfaction by doing purpose. But that was also being considered foolish because there was no the fear of the Lord in it.
But then I saw a someone grown with everything the Lord wants him to do: LOVE, faith, hope, but also grow with him a long bush that is waiting to hide him not to be seen when the right time comes for him to be seen and to bring glory to God.
This bush was there from the beginning, even though the man has not noticed it. It was something that must be eradicated long time ago. But the man has not removed it and it grows with him. It was the bush that the man always used to express anger, disappointment, hopelessness, disbelief, distress, discomfort and anxiety.
Everything the boy goes into trouble, it will go into this bush and do whatever necessary and express his feelings. May be that is all it is: a platform for expression of feelings.
The boy liked it until one day, one day that he became a man. That is until he had to leave a grown up life. He had to get rid of all childish things and move on as a grown-up do to make very difficult decisions and follow them. This is until he missed some of the opportunities that come as a package for a grown man.
As he was lifting his hand, expecting to receive it, it was given out someone else who is old enough to take huge responsibility and since the boy was not in that category at all. Believe me the package that he missed was not just an ordinary package. It was one of those real blessings from the Lord and how intoxicating it is for him. Don't go to such kind of bush again, please!
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit give us strength to be faithful, in Jesus Name, AMEN!
