SUBMISSION & COMMANDMENTS: “WORTH CONSIDERING” 1/7/21 Ken<><
The Lord Jesus Christ spoke much about keeping “HIS COMMANDMENTS”….Yesterday one of my subscribers wrote as to exactly what they were. And actually we all know in our heart of hearts exactly what Jesus would do. But if you need a refresher to read from the heart Matt. 5 would be a great start. Now these are real commandments from or King, Lord, Master. These are not mental church games. Jesus said this about HIS Commandments: After all has been considered; the end of the matter is: “Fear God [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man [ the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man. Ecclesiastes 12:13 As here we see that the original purposed of our creation is to learn obedience. So what grade in God’s School of obedience are you in now? So out of the 153 scriptures in the Amplified to consider. Now we fully realize the our SALVATION in not of works but of faith in Jesus as LORD… But then faith without works is dead. And the concept of LORD (Master) is to be one of obedience to HIS commandments.
36 Teacher, which [a] kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? [Some commandments are light—which are heavy?] 37 And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). 38 This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. 40 These two commandments [b] sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets. Matt.22:36-38 (That would mean that God comes first in everything and including loving your neighbor.)
Here is a commandment that gets lost much of the time, Proverbs 6:16-20 and notice the last one, “ 16 These six things the Lord hates, indeed, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look [the spirit that makes one overestimate himself and underestimate others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who breathes out lies [even under oath], and he who sows discord among his brethren.20 My son, keep your father’s [God-given] commandment and forsake not the law of [God] your mother [taught you]. Often called the 7 deadly sins. Hard to believe the amount of false witness in our U.S. last election.
James write it this way in James 4:1 concerning the Disobedience of Discord: “What leads to strife (discord and feuds) and how do conflicts (quarrels and fighting’s ) originate among you? Do they not arise from your sensual desires that are ever warring in your bodily members? You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your desires go unfulfilled; [so] you become murderers. [To hate is to murder as far as your hearts are concerned.] You burn with envy and anger and are not able to obtain [the gratification, the contentment, and the happiness that you seek], so you fight and war. You do not have, because you do not ask. [Or] you do ask [God for them] and yet fail to receive, because you ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is [when you get what you desire] to spend it in sensual pleasures. …
So now, it would seem that the election is over we will need to mend fences and find Unity. In Christ Jesus this may not be hard to do as this world is not our real home anyway. Hate to see the pain that our world is in but not much can be done about it but to pray and win souls. So you might want to see if you are in disobedience anywhere and start running a tight ship in the Promises of God in order to overcome this world, Rom.8. Want to be an overcomer, try obedience and submission with Jesus really as THE LORD. (Master, King) No Voting in Heaven.

Worthy Brief <email@example.com> Having just announced it plans to enrich uranium at a level far above that allowed by the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the Iranian regime said Tuesday that it is installing 1,000 additional centrifuges and increasing its supply of yellowcake, a uranium concentrate powder used for enrichment. A Jewish-Israeli businessman is helping Palestinians in the Gaza Strip to access clean water, the Times of Israel reports. Through his Israel-based company Watergen, Mikhail Mirilashvili has provided atmospheric water generators to Gaza in an effort to relieve the chronic drinking-water crisis there. Facial recognition experts and backers of American President Donald J. Trump said members of the hardline leftist Antifa movement infiltrated protestors who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. U.S. Senate resumed debating a Republican challenge against Democrat Joe Biden’s presidential election victory, hours after mobs claiming to be “pro-Trump” stormed the Capitol complex. In a Jan. 5 executive order, President Donald J. Trump directed the State Department and the Justice Department to assess whether the left-wing Antifa organization should be classified as a “terrorist organization,” and to consider listing Antifa as “aliens who are members of an identifi ed criminal organization.” CCP virus vaccine issues: https://www.charismanews.com/politics/opinion/83929-pastor-sam-rohrer-advises-should-you-take-the-covid-19-vaccine?utm_source=Charisma%20News%20Daily& utm_medium=email&utm_content=subscriber_id:1158391&utm_campaign=CNO%20daily%20-%202021-01-07
In liberal minds this event may put an end to the investigations into election fraud, the Biden family, the Steele Dossier, the China collusion, the Russia collusion, the Clinton emails, Hunter Biden’s laptop, and the Epstein investigation. They can go back to doing DC deals with mega-corporations and foreign governments. It will be Swamp business as usual. The ruling party will feel they have the moral high ground. Look out for packing the Supreme Court. Perhaps Biden nominates Obama, statehood for DC and Puerto Rico ? socialized medicine, confiscation of firearms, 2021 Depression, the list goes on and on. Uncharted Waters…. Be in Prayer.
BUT!!! Jesus taught us to love our enemies and to do good to those who despitefully use us Matt.5:44 and Paul wrote to submit to those to whom God has aloud to have authority, Romans 13. And much easier if we see ourselves as pilgrims in a foreign land and this world is not our real home so we should not get all bent out of shape by politics as we head into Matt.24, Mark13 & Luke 21 as sin, like a big boil, is brought to a head and is removed by our LORD at Armageddon. My paper attached if interested.
