For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works (Psalms 73:27 & 28).
The LORD has established the earth and it abideth; shall this God not have his glory? The heavens have not fallen. Neither do the stars ceased to shine and disobey the LORD. They follow the ordinance of God. The moon and the sun are not disobedient: they glorify God. The hand of God prosper. Shall it not prosper against the brutish? Even to the depths of the ocean, to the heights of many mountains, the glory of God avails much. Like a high tower, the rising of the sun, and the dewdrops in the morning, the glory of God shall prevail. Even in the midst of the heathen God shall be glorified. Make no mistake about that. War shall rage against the LORD but God shall find glory. Yet shall I declare the name of the LORD. And all his works shall I bring forth with righteousness. Many have not stood up for God, yet they say they love God. The cowards will not stand up for truth. But for death they will. Vanity they embrace with such comfort. And how many lies shall be enough to fill their bosom? They defend the lies of men who have called this God a liar. But the day of judgment will come when every man will give an answer for his deeds. And although I am being opposed, I will not cease from being a servant of God. As a matter of fact I glory in it and I find strength in the LORD to do his will.
And although I am being opposed by those who are deceived, I will not cease from being a servant of God. The devil, the liar, come to destroy. But the good shepherd come to save his flock from destruction. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for his sheep (John 10:10 & 11). My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand (John 10:27 & 28). And yet some want me to preach a new doctrine, a doctrine that pleases man, and angers God. Some would rather me not tell the truth, but perpetuate a lie. But I am a deciple of Christ, who shall stand firm on the Rock, unto righteousness and the glory of God. I am from the good shepherd. The LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him (Psalm 92:15). Every word that cometh out of the mouth of God I shall declare. The LORD shall be exalted. Men would rather live under the lies of other men than depart from under the ways of destruction. Shall I stand against God and yet shall I glory? The ways of God bringeth forth light that who should follow the light shall not dine in darkness. Is men infallible, yet shall you put your confidence in them? Are you willing to follow these men unto death? Or are you willing to follow Christ, who is our Savior, unto everlasting glory? When we take a stand we must be mindful of these things. O Father, who will withhold thy truth or distort it, and deny thy people the liberty of thy word? Only the wicked will do such a thing. Only the brutish will stand up against God. And who will not see the deception of the evil one, lest they have been made blind to the truth? O Father, open their eyes so that they may see. Soften their hearts, O God: give them a heart of flesh that they may adhere to the word of God. Let them discern what is truth and what is lie, that the glory of God may beseech them. The day is growing old and the new day will soon come. Let the way of the LORD be the epitome of their souls. Let truth rise up in their midst and let them behold of it. Who shall desire the word of the LORD desires a good thing. By the hearing of the word they shall come to thee. Let thy glory be magnified in their midst. Remove the blinders and let them rejoice. Let them rejoice in the liberty of Christ. Let them rejoice in the goodness of God. For how far will the blind go and where will their destiny be? The pit awaits the corruption of men. And who shall deceive the people shall not find glory with God. The billows shall cover them and the rocks shall fall upon them. The joy of the LORD shall depart from their midst. And sorrows shall encrouch them like a thousand men. The mountains shall rise up against them and the valleys shall not jump for joy. O LORD, for the elect sake, bring clarity, O God. The light of the living God shall shine forever. Let it shine in their midst. Remove the darkness from their minds. And let the joy of the LORD be exceedingly great in their hearts. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God (John 1:1). So let thy truth prevail among men. Let no one deny thy elect thy glory. For the hand of God is a precious hand, a hand of victory, and rejoicing. As it was in the beginning so shall it be. The glory of God shall rise up. Yea, I tell you the truth. The glory of God shall rise up. It shall rise up and never fall. This God of mine is faithful in all his ways. And in his righteousness shall men prevail. In his holiness shall men see the light and the glory of God. Who shall behold the depths and heights of God? Shall the wicked trample on God and yet shall they prevail? Who have deceived them into destruction? Who shall fool God, lest he be a fool? Who shall do wickedness and hide it from God, lest he go down in the pit? Vanity will be vanity. And every false prophet shall face the destruction of God, lest they repent of their sins before God. No one will call God a liar and yet stand before God, lest he repent of his sins. Repent of your sins, those who have departed from the truth. Repent of your sins, those who have feast in the corruption of men. Those who have considered the word of men truth and the word of God a lie, repent. Repent, repent, repent, saith the LORD.
The fallacies of men have led other men to destruction. The scribes and the Pharisees, are they not the epitome of fallacies? Are they not saturated in sin, yet they know it not? The self – righteousness of wicked men shall find death before God. If a man would come to his true knowledge of his imperfections, his sinful nature, and repent of his sins before God, God is merciful, and the goodness of God shall yet prevail. Christ came to save sinners from destruction. But if any man is without sin, who can save him? Who can save the prideful that would die in errors rather than seek the truth? This God is faithful in all his ways. And who shall come to God in Spirit and in truth shall live. Who shall detest the wicked before men shall see the glory of God. But who shall stand up for corruption shall not see the glory of God. I tell you the truth. Be not religious in wickedness. But be righteous in Christ. In Christ all shall live. And without Christ, no man shall see the face of God. All must come to this knowledge of truth. All must eat of it if they desire life. Let us all stand with God that we may feast in the glory of God. Let us behold the goodness and mercy of God and honor him in Spirit and in truth. The LORD is our God. Blessed be the name of God. Blessed be his soul, forever and ever. Amen.
