ADORNMENT BEFORE GOD

  Home

MATTHEW 6:24-34**NO MAN CAN SERVE 2 MASTERS: FOR EITHER HE WILL HATE THE ONE, AND LOVE THE OTHER………..YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON (MONEY)……..AND WHY TAKE YE THOUGHT FOR RAIMENT (CLOTHES) CONSIDER THE LILIES OF THE FIELD, HOW THEY GROW; THEY TOIL NOT, NEITHER DO THEY SPIN; AND YET I SAY UNTO YOU. THAT EVEN SOLOMON IN ALL HIS GLORY WAS NOT ARRAYED LIKE ONE OF THESE.

OUR MESSIAH CHRIST JESUS SPOKE THESE WORDS TO WARD OFF THE SERVING OF MAMMON (IDOLATRY & SATAN). OUR HEAVENLY FATHER WISHES US TO SERVE HIM SOLELY WITH PURITY AND NOT TO SERVE OTHER GODS SUCH AS MAMMON.

LUKE 12:24**CONSIDER THE RAVENS: FOR THEY NEITHER SOW NOR REAP; WHICH NEITHER HAVE STOREHOUSE NOR BARN: AND GOD FEEDS THEM: HOW MUCH MORE ARE YE BETTER THAN THE FOWLS?

SO GOD RICHLY FEEDS THEM WITHOUT WORRY OR EFFORT AND DISPLAYS BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS OF THE FIELD.

CHILDREN GENERALLY HAVE NO CONCERNS FOR FOOD UNLESS IT’S BAD FOR THEIR HEALTH, BUT A CHILD SHOULD LEARN THAT NO MATTER WHAT LOWLY STATION HE IS, HE CAN PERFORM THE BEAUTIFUL WORK OF SERVING GOD. TENDING THE HOUSE AND FOLLOWING INSTRUCTION OF PARENTS AND TEACHERS IS SERVING GOD. HOWEVER, DISOBEDIENCE IS SERVING ANOTHER MASTER (SATAN).

ABOVE ALL THINGS, A GOOD SERVANT OF GOD LISTENS TO THE WORD (BIBLE) AND TAKES ACTION BY GLADLY DOING IT. THIS IS A WELL PLEASING SERVICE RENDERED TO GOD. PERHAPS ONE DAY GOD WILL SAY TO YOU, "THIS IS MY BELOVED SON OR DAUGHTER WHO I AM WELL PLEASED." (FROM LUKE 3:22)

GOD COMMANDS CHILDREN TO HONOR THEIR FATHER AND MOTHER. WHEN CHILDREN HONOR INSTRUCTION FROM THEIR PARENTS, THEY ALSO HONOR GOD WHO HAS INSTRUCTED IT. WHEN PARENTS ARE FAITHFUL TO EACH OTHER AND HONEST AND TRUTHFUL WITH THEIR CHILDREN WITH ACCEPTABLE CONDUCT AND SPEECH, THIS IS ALSO ACCEPTABLE AND PLEASING TO GOD IN HEAVEN. GOD’S SON CHRIST JESUS GUIDES US WITH THE WORD OF LIFE (BIBLE).

WE MUST LEARN WHAT IT MEANS TO SERVE GOD. IF WE FOLLOW THE WORDS OF LIFE (BIBLE) YOUR HEART CAN REST SECURELY BEFORE GOD. YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING WITH JOY, AND YOUR WORK OR SERVICE WILL NOT BE BURDENSOME AND DIFFICULT FOR YOU. INSTEAD YOU HEART WILL BE FILLED WITH JOY, FOR YOUR HEART KNOWS IT IS TRUE SERVICE TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.

PSALM 45:2-9**THOU (CHRIST) ART FAIRER THAN THE CHILDREN OF MEN: GRACE (LOVE) IS POURED INTO THY LIPS: THEREFORE GOD HATH BLESSED THEE FOREVER (CHRIST FOREVER). GIRD THY SWORD UPON THY THIGH, O MOST MIGHTY, WITH THY GLORY AND THY MAJESTY. AND IN THY MAJESTY RIDE PROSPEROUSLY (VICTORIOUS) BECAUSE OF TRUTH AND MEEKNESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND THY RIGHT HAND SHALL TEACH THEE TERRIBLE (AWESOME) THINGS. YOUR ARROWS ARE SHARP IN THE HEART OF THE KING’S ENEMIES; WHEREBY THE PEOPLE (WICKED) FALL UNDER THEE. THY THRONE, O GOD IS FOR EVER AND EVER; THE SCEPTER OF THY KINGDOM IS A RIGHT SCEPTER (SCEPTER OF JUSTICE). YOU LOVE RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND HATE WICKEDNESS; THEREFORE GOD, THY GOD, HATH ANOINTED THEE WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS (JOY) ABOVE THY FELLOWS. ALL THY GARMENTS SMELL OF MYRRH, AND ALOES AND CASSIA (CINNAMON). OUT OF THE IVORY PALACES, WHEREBY THY HAVE MADE THEE GLAD. KINGS DAUGHTERS WERE AMONG THY HONORABLE WOMEN: UPON THY RIGHT DID STAND THE QUEEN IN GOLD OF OPHIR (PUREST GOLD).

EVERYTHING, EXCEPT MANKIND, THAT WAS CREATED BY GOD OBEYS AND GLORIFIES HIM BY FOLLOWING HIS COMMANDMENTS. THE SUN FAITHFULLY COMES UP EVERY DAY TO PROVIDE LIGHT BY DAY AS THE MOON IS OBEDIENT TO PRESIDE OVER THE NIGHT. ALL CREATURES DO AS COMMANDED, DRESSED IN BEAUTIFUL GARMENTS OF FUR OR EVEN SCALES. UNLIKE MANKIND, THEY DO EXACTLY AS COMMANDED BY GRACEFULLY LEAPING, SOARING, SINGING, HUMMING, SWIMMING, FEEDING AND CARING FOR THE YOUNG.

IF GOD SO HIGHLY PRAISES A FLOWER WHAT AWESOME ADORNMENT IS OBTAINED WHEN A RIGHTEOUS MAN OR WOMAN WALKS IN GOD’S WORD AND KEEPS HIS COMMANDMENTS: HE/SHE THEN BECOMES MORE BEAUTIFULLY ADORNED THAN A FIELD OF LILIES IN BLOOM. THERE IS NO GREATER GLORY ON EARTH THAN WHEN A PERSON READS, LISTENS AND FOLLOWS THE WORD OF LIFE. NOT EVEN THE GLORY OF THE RISING OR SETTING SUN CAN COMPARE TO THE ADORNMENT OF GOD AND HIS HOLY WORD. MAN IS THEN ADORNED WITH GOD HIMSELF.

OF COURSE THIS ADORNMENT DOES NOT GLITTER HERE ON EARTH WHERE SATAN CONSTANTLY DIRECTS US TO WORSHIP MAMMON, GOLD, DIAMONDS AND RUBIES, SHINY CARS, BOATS, LUXURIES AND EVEN OURSELVES. HOWEVER, IN THE NEW HEAVEN AND EARTH, GOD WILL BRING LIGHT FOR US TO SEE THE REWARD THAT IS MORE RESPLENDENT THAN ALL THE ADORNMENT THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER.

*****WE MUST SERVE GOD IN HEAVEN AND NOT MAMMON!

*****WE MUST KEEP GOD’S COMMANDMENTS!

*****IN WHATEVER CALLING WE HAVE IN LIFE WE WILL BE BLESSED

AND ADORNED BY GOD HIMSELF!

 

MAY OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HELP US WIN THE BATTLE FOR ETERNAL LIFE WITH HIS STRONG RIGHT ARM, THE MESSIAH CHRIST JESUS!.
