Word for the Week...1--- 7 / 5 /2006

"Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates,to be ready to every good work.(v.2) To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men".

The overthrow of the wicked is one thing...(2Thess.2:12).The overthrow of Government is another !!! Contrary to the opinions of some, we do not serve a God of anarchy( ! ),but a God of decency and order...(1Cor 14:40).Obviously, the root of all rebellion is pride..as was the case with Lucifer...(Isaiah 14:12-15,Ezekiel 28:15ff). A walk of humility is a wise walk, which will ultimately be rewarded by The Lord Himself...(James 4:6,10). Injustices will abound until the end of time, but we are not to react 'naturally'..rather, 'supernaturally', by blessing our enemies and doing good to those who despise and injure us ! This is the 'Way of The Cross' and our reward cannot be stolen by man or devil ! because it is given from The One Who Is Faithful...What was HE like?...'I AM meek and lowly in heart'...(Matt.11:29ff). The way of humility is also the way of Peace, Joy, Love,etc....the fruit of The Holy Spirit...the hallmark of the true Christian.                                                        May The Lord Bless you.
