Duty of Man


Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14 ** Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments. For this is man’s all.  For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.  **From whatever position we have in this brief and difficult life we must work to live. When we open our hearts, minds and body to serve and please our Creator, we live. Without the obligation of during out earthly duty in tasks, conduct and service we cannot have the beautiful treasures of royalty that await those in the hereafter with true love. Showing our true love begins with keeping the holy commandments of our Heavenly Father with the fear of being disobedient and the dread of punishment by displeasing HIM. With obedience in faithful love by keeping HIS holy commandments our treasures beyond imagination await.

Hebrews 11:24-26 ** By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasure in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.  

True faithful love to enjoy the passing pleasure of sin to love God and His people of all nations. To have the faith of the patriarch is not the belief our God will do what we desire but the belief that our God of unfailing love will do what is right. Mankind has inherited the love of sin since being cast out of the Garden for disobedience. The greatest of these sins is the opposite of what our Creator desires which is to keep HIS Commandments of love instead of the inherited desire for greed and hate. When we develop true faith instead of just saying it, we become involved in loving action.

We develop a loving action in response to our unseen God to do what HE has promised. We develop a vision of our God working miracles in ordinary people which cannot be explained. We do the will of our Father God with trembling and fear which is to show our love by keeping HIS commandments as repeatedly directed in Genesis 26:5, Exodus 20:6, Numbers 15:40, Deuteronomy 7:11, Matthew 19:17, John 14:15, 15:10, Revelation 14:12 and many other passages which are the only key to fit the door for entrance into the soon coming Kingdom.

While Revelation 14:12 is not the last directive in keeping the commandments of our unseen God, it includes true faith, saying, “Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.”  ** The three preceding verses should put the fear of the Lord into mankind since Satan; the beast continues to be worshipped. Just as our unseen Creator cannot be seen but searches the heart for those that truly love HIM. The mark of the beast is seen in breaking the laws of our Creator God, as we continue worshipping Satan, the beast.  Our Creator places an invisible tattoo within the inward parts of HIS faithful servants for the soon coming harvest.  Surely, most of this evil world that continues to worship Satan will have his mark of the beast which he desperately desires all mankind to worship him. Likewise, the worshipper of Satan, the beast, is seen by our Lord God in the breaking of HIS commandments of life, love and peace. It appears Satan is winning the battle, but nothing is impossible for God. (Luke 1:37. Mark 10:27). ** Hebrews 11:6 assures us that without faith it is impossible to please God and that true faithful believers who seek him diligently will be a rewarded family member. Hebrews 10:10 gives assurance saying, “By that will we have been sanctified (made holy) through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.     

Satan, the beast and temporary God of mankind (2 Thessalonians 2:4) since the fall of man in the Garden has come down to us with great wrath since his time now grows very short. (Revelation 12:12).  The rapid approach of the end times as prophesied in Revelation was also prophesied by Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Jeremiah. However, a little known prophet called Amos prophesied first to Judah then to the ten tribes of northern Israel. Both divided countries were prosperous but had violated the commandments and spiritual unfaithfulness of God who stands opposed to those that oppress the poor and needy. (Proverbs 22:22). In verse 23, saying, “For the Lord will take up their case and will plunder those who plunder them. The exile of the ten tribes occurred within 30 years after Amos prophesied and exile occurred in 722 BC. The fall of Jerusalem and Judah occurred 136 years later in 586 BC.

In modern times the single tribe of Judah comprises what is now Israel. The rest of the house of Jacob has been mingled throughout the world, predominately Europe, the United States and throughout the former British Empire.  In the soon coming kingdom Christ will bring peace to the entire Kingdom of Israel with not just the Jews, but all of Jacob’s descendants disseminated throughout the world. (Ezekiel 34:11-14). Verse 16 proclaims: “I will seek what was lost and bring back what was driven away, bind up the broken and strengthen what was sick; but I will destroy the fat and the strong, and feed them in judgment.” ** Verse 23: “I will establish one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them…. My servant David… He shall feed them and be their shepherd.”   ** Turn to the Lord now and let HIM bind up your broken heart, take away your sickness and be protected and cared for by David; a Prince of the coming Kingdom.
