THE ALMIGHTY GOD
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*THE ALMIGHTY GOD*
Samuel 3:19 ► *And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Deut 32:4 ► *He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.*
Samuel was also one of the greatest voices similitude of God. He was also referred to as a man of God ref, 1 Sam 9:6. His word was God's word.
He along with Moses and the prophets had spiritual authorities over biological parents.
Though our parents have authority that must be honored, it still behoves that the word of a man after God's heart will forever overide, change, endorse and command a greater authority over our lives.
Jacob, cursed his sons, namely: Reuben, Simeon and Levi, ref Gen 49:2-7.
Moses came after to reverse the curse on Reuben saying in Deut 33: 6 ► *Let Reuben live, and not die; and let not his men be few.*
Moses reversed Jacob's curse that Levi be *"....scattered in Israel..."*, Gen 49:7.
Moses said In Deut 33:10-11 *"They shall teach Jacob thy judgments, and Israel thy law.... Bless, Lord, his substance, and accept the work of his hand.*
So it goes that if a biological parent curses, a spiritual parent could reverse it but if a spiritual parent curses, a biological parent cannot reverse.
Nonetheless, we must give due honor to our biological parents and must avoid provoking a curse from them.
God commands this obedience and it is with a promise of long life, ref Eph 6: 2-3.
Our biological relationship has not been annulled. God values it and He acknowledges children are born by the *"...will of man...*, John 1:13.
Likewise, but more of a greater honor is to those who are *"... born of God..*
Power is only given to those who received Christ because they are born of God, John 1:12.
Power is not given to those who are born by the will of man.
Honor to a chosen vessel is not just because it is right, ref Eph 6:1, it is righteous because it is declared and sanctioned by God's command.
For every vessel chosen by God, He gives them stature: that whosoever disobeys them, disobeys Him. Luke 10:16 ► *He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me;...."*
If it is right before God, then it a command. No wish of God for us is void of His promises and blessings,
Philippians 4:8 ► *Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.*(NLT)
Despise not spiritual authority, neither should you despise your father and mother.
Everything God permits as right to do, is God's way. Every way right before God, comes with promises and blessings as much as every other commandments of blessings. They are both old and new in the Lord and must be accorded as such, nothing wavering.
*Call to Word action.*
2 Chro 20:20 *"....Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
The authority of Samuel, Moses overrode the curses of Jacob.
Obedience to parents in the Lord is not by choice just as obedience to your father and mother is not. It is a command. It is more than being right but must also be done in righteousness.
The vessels of God as parents in the Lord are ordained by God to release blessings over parental authority.
James 2:10 ► *For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.*
Lord help me to keep your laws and commandments. Let me not offend in any of them, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
