Luke Chapter 11

49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets
and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
50 That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which
perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It
shall be required of this generation.

The last few days i have been wondering what this Scripture means, as in Luke Chapter 11 verse 50. I have been wondering about it and today i woke up and i suddenly realized that it is not just some random thing that happened, that we ended up with God’s Word. No, it is by no accident that we have received the Word of God. It did not get here by itself, but it came to us over the centuries, brought to us by all the prophets, and all the people who brought us the Scriptures. Everything that has ever been done to bring us the Scripture comes down to this generation.

So we can see that receiving the Word of God is no small thing. It is not to be taken lightly. No, it is very very important and that is also why we need to heed God’s Word. God did not go to all the trouble to send us HIs Word and His commandments, just for us to ignore. Of course not. Of course, people can choose to ignore God and God’s Word, if they wish to. But i propose that reasonable men won’t.

The more i get to know God, the more i understand that God is very logical. God is not willy nilly, going about changing His mind and this and that. No, God even tells us His word will never pass away. When God says something, He means it. A good example i find of this is in Genesis when God commands Adam to eat herbs. God said this is your food. And after God created Adam and Adam’s food, God looked down and saw that it was “very good.” God made the perfect world, he made the perfect man, he gave the man the perfect food to eat, and even the animals had the same food. And God saw what He had made, and He saw that it was “very good”. It was perfect.

So now that God created the perfect system and He saw that it was very good, why would God then later go and change it? Because some people said that God changed His Word later in the Bible and told people they could eat meat and a bunch of other things that God did NOT tell Adam he could eat. Why would God go and make changes to His Perfect system? WEll, i don’t believe He did. I believe that people tried to make changes to God’s word in an attempt to try and change things that we could eat. But God’s word will never pass away.

Some people will say Oh but it’s in Scripture that tells us that. But i say God is logical, and He isn’t going to go and change His Perfect Order, later. Not only that, but God also gives us the commandment “Thou shalt not kill” and we cannot eat living creatures Unless we kill them! So even though people tried to change God’s word, God also gave us His commandment, so that we would know beyond a reasonable doubt what God wants us to eat.

This also shows us the danger of people trying to change God’s word! Because first they try to change what you can eat, then they also have to change the commandment not to kill, so that they can change what they want to eat! Next thing you know they are trying to change or do away with, all God’s commandments, instead of following them! Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees. The leaven of the Pharisees is hypocrisy.

I wonder why people would continue to kill things to eat, even after they realize it’s unnecessary and they can live better on fruits and vegetables. Is it because people enjoy killing things? Maybe they just don’t care. They would rather kill some animals because they enjoy the taste better than a watermelon?

I do believe that God grades on a curve, but i believe that Scripture is our standard.

I also thought about lying to kids about santa and elves and all that. If we lie to our kids, we are liars. And all liars get cast into the lake of fire. So we should all know by now NOT to be liars. People might say lying is bad, but you can call lying good, or bad, or indifferent. It makes no difference what you call it. What matters is what happens to you when you DO lie. That’s why we don’t lie. Not because people said it is good or bad, but because of what will happen to us if we keep doing it!

As for me, i try not to show any favoritism. I don’t want people to say Oh, he’s nice to that guy, or he shows favoritism to that church, because i try not to show favoritism to anybody. I try to find fault with everyone EQUALLY. That way everyone knows i love them equally. And if God rebukes you, then you should be happy, not sad. BEcause that means God loves you, if God rebukes you and corrects your ways, God is trying to save you!

Proverbs Chapter 13

A WISE son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner heareth
not rebuke.

Hebrews Chapter 12

5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as
unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord,
nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son
whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for
what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then
are ye bastards, and not sons.
9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us,
and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in
subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?
10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own
pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his
holiness.
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but
grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of
righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble
knees;
13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be
turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man
shall see the Lord:
15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any
root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be
defiled;
16 Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for
one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
17 For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited
the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with tears.
18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and
that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice
they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them
any more:
20 (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so
much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust
through with a dart:
21 And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear
and quake:)
22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living
God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of
angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are
written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of
just men made perfect,
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood
of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
25 See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not
who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we
escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven:
26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised,
saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.
27 And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those
things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things
which cannot be shaken may remain.
28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us
have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence
and godly fear:
29 For our God is a consuming fire.

PSALM 119

ALEPH.

BLESSED are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the
LORD.
2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with
the whole heart.
3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
4 Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently.
5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy
commandments.
7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have
learned thy righteous judgments.
8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.

BETH.

9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed
thereto according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander
from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against
thee.
12 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all
riches.
15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.

GIMEL.

17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy
word.
18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of
thy law.
19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments
at all times.
21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from
thy commandments.
22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy
testimonies.
23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did
meditate in thy statutes.
24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellers.
