Prison of Love

2 Chronicles 7:14-15 NKJV: If my people who are called by MY name will humble themselves, and pray and seek MY face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now MY eyes will open and MY ear attentive to prayer made in this place. 

Our Lord God lived in a box of wood with HIS ten commandments of stone (Ark of the Covenant) for more than 1,000 years since Sinai. Our humble Creator of the heavens and earth never asked for a castle, a cathedral or temple. Our Lord God was pleased to be in a prison of love for HE was with HIS people; even while living in a box. King David offered to build HIM a house. ** I Chronicles 22:7-8: And David said to Solomon: My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build a house to the name of the Lord my God. But the word of the Lord came to me, saying: You have shed much blood and have made great wars; you shall not build a house for MY name, because you have shed much blood on the earth in MY sight. ** An undertaking of this magnitude  required the cooperation of the entire nation of Israel. King David needed to bring the nation under one God with one mind by issuing a royal edit to help Solomon in verse 18-19: Is not the Lord your God with you? And has HE not given you rest on every side? For HE has given the inhabitants of the land into my hand, and the land is subdued before the Lord and before HIS people. Now set your heart and your soul to seek the Lord your God. Therefore arise and build the sanctuary of the Lord God, to bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the holy articles of God into the house that is to be build for the name of the Lord?

In the game of baseball, the world knows 'three strikes is out' . The batter cannot go home or even move to first base. Perhaps the game is lost.  So it is with the game of life. Just as in this age, mankind  then quickly turned back to their sinful nature inherited from Adam in the Garden.  The anger of our Lord God caused the first and second temples to be destroyed because mankind continued to desire the wicked ways of the world and not the humble way of God.  Mankind continues toying with the game of life seeking the third temple/church strike of anger from our Lord God. This strike is fatal and everlasting for most of mankind by not keeping all ten of HIS commandments and the seven commanded feasts of Leviticus 23. The  humble Messiah came to earth to warn mankind the game of life can be Amen (so it is * Hebrew/Greek) or the game is lost in death; so it is, Amen. Your choice, your decision.  Why not choose life?  So it is. Amen.

John 11:23-27: Jesus said to her: Your brother will rise again. Martha said to HIM: I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in ME, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in ME shall never die. Do you believe this?  She said to HIM: Yes, Lord, I believe that YOU are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world.  ** Verse 43-44: And when HE said these things. HE cried with a loud voice:  Lazarus come forth!  And he  who had died come out bound hand and foot with grave clothes and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them. Loose him, and let him go. **    With shout of authority, seen by many witnesses,  the Messiah brought Lazarus back to life after 4 days in the tomb. Our God  is resurrection personified eternally and offers life for those that believe by keeping all HIS commandments of love. Those souls willing to humble themselves as the Lord humbled himself by living in a box for more than a thousand years and further humbled by giving HIS only begotten (earthborn) son (John 3:16). Since only a holy sacrifice, as God is holy, could redeem the sorry state of sinful man. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

Just as our Lord God is displeased with the defiled people in this age, the returning people form Babylon consecrated themselves by building beautiful homes and forgot about building a house of God (Haggai (1:2-4).  Verse 9:....Because of MY house which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with his own house. ** Hosea 8:13: For the sacrifices of MY offerings they sacrifice flesh and eat it, but the Lord does not accept them. Now HE will remember their iniquity and punish their sins...Haggai 2:14:Then Haggai answered and said: So is this people and so is this nation before ME, says the Lord, and so is every work of their hands and what they offer there is unclean (defiled). **    Just as our Lord God is displeased with the defiled people then and more now; the house of the Lord remains a ruin to this day since few please our Lord God by keeping all HIS commandments. The devil continues to poison the minds of mankind into worshipping his regime by ignoring our Lord God. Our Lord God's greatest desire is to give life to obedient children.  In the town of Bethany, near Mount Olives, God gave life to a dear friend called Lazarus. Later, at Passover Feast, the Messiah, Jesus said in John 14:19: ....Because I live, you will live also.  ** The next day, HE laid down HIS life for you and for me. This was a prison of love for you and for me. Oh, what love!      As prophesied, in three days, HE removed all doubt by coming alive!   So it is. Amen!                                                           

Be blessed until we meet again!
