Law & Disorder

Good Day to each of you reading this column and grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Turbulence, uncertainty, violence, disorder, murderers, race against race, neighbor against neighbor and a country divided. Sounds familiar?

What country am I talking about? Covid 19, the pandemic, grocery stores out of food, pestilences, pests from over countries destroying our good insects, massive layoffs, bankruptcies, lootings and now the police.

Murder caught on a camera by a policeman—yes, a white policeman who killed a black man. I know you have read the accounts that led to the stopping and arrest of this man and the account of his black man that died.

Fellow Christian, we are seeing what is happening in the United States of America today and I hear people asking where is God in these times?

Let me ask you fellow Christian—No matter the race or the color, why are those protesting on national television not asking for God’s help? Nowhere, but nowhere have I seen one report of protesters asking for God to intervene?

Do you not remember who created you? Do you not remember 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV) 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 forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Fellow Christians, I am talking to you—We kicked God out of public schools, prayer out of public schools and the Ten Commandments out of public properties.

Are we any different then the Israelite people who wandered in the desert for forty years? Stiff neck, grumbling men and women who believed their laws were better than the four great bodies of law given in the Bible.

Has your minister reminded you what those four bodies of law are? They are laws contained in commandments, laws set forth in statutes, laws governing judgments and laws contained in ordinances. The ordinances, which were confined to the laws of the sacrifice for sin and atonement were all fulfilled in the sacrificial death on Calvary’s cross of Jesus Christ, who carried out their requirement in full. Nevertheless, no man or nation is set free from keeping the commandments, statutes and judgments of the Lord.

As you have read from my previous columns on the Ten Commandments, murder is murder and the fourth commandment says Thou shalt not Murder. This is a command from God and man, in his defiance to God, has done all that he could to show God that his laws are better.

What a mess! I recently read the Destiny Letter #196 and I wish to quote some thoughts by Howard Rand. The anarchist declares governments are necessary for he regards the restraints imposed upon him by the administration of law tyrannical. But opposition to the administration of law is not confined to the anarchists for there are too many Christians who are in rebellion to Divine Law. While they admit the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount embody the ultimate ideal for Christian conduct, in actual practice they deny the need of strict obedience to the Law of the Lord which God enjoyed His Kingdom people to administer.

When fellow Christians adhere and practice the Laws of the Lord, we receive the blessings from the Lord and when we don’t, we receive the curses. It is just that simple. Look at 1 John 3:4 (NIV) Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. Those who advocate the abolition of the law forget that if there is no law sin cannot exist.

As you ponder on the above thought, turn to Matthew 5:19 for Jesus said, “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

The problems we are facing is not new—turn to 1 Timothy, chapter one and you will see what Paul and Timothy were facing as they were doing the work of Jesus Christ. Verses 3-11 will go you a vivid idea of what they faced with those wishing to be teachers of the law and not understanding either what they say or of what they are asserting.

As Paul says, the Law is excellent—provided it is legitimately used, with the understanding that law is not intended for upright men but for the lawless and disorderly, the godless and irreligious, the irreverent and profane, men who kill their fathers or mothers, murderers, immoral people, men sexually perverted, kidnappers, liars, perjurers, or whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, as set forth in the glorious good news of the blessed God with which I have been intrusted. I Timothy 1:8:11 (Smith & Goodspeed)

To you, the pastor over your flock, what are our national transgressions and sins? Are they not our departure as a people from the observance of all of God’s laws?

The same above question is asked to you, fellow church member? We are ALL accountable and one day we must answer and be accountable for all that has transpired in our lifetime.

No, we don’t want to hear this—Wake up and get your head out of the sand—Look, we have chaos in the physical, spiritual and economic life and why? We have failed to observe and keep the orderly laws of peace. Look back at the past records and the present records of human history and you will conclude that history reveals chaotic conditions, with mankind afflicted with crime, violence and war along with famine, pestilence and disease.

The law of the Lord was made known to man from the very beginning of human history. If not, there would be no guide to prosperity and peace. The result in each of our lives of keeping God’s perfect laws is a happy and enduring existence.

If God’s commandments were 100% in effect today, men and women would give much thought before they stole, cheated on their spouse, lied, covet, or murdered. The circumstances would be SWIFT & SEVERE.

Please read the Bible to see both the swiftness of the outcome and severity of the outcome. If you say this isn’t fair or right, argue with God.

Our present system is BROKE and men and women who put their laws into effect have made a mockery of God’s laws.

I await to hear from those that say this column is racist, mean, not what God intended, laws are outdated, that’s your interpretation of the Bible, capital punishment is wrong, abortion is right, it’s my body and I can do whatever I wish to do with it, I have the right.

All I can say is, As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. You have a choice, may you choose wisely for one day all must answer.

May God Bless you and may you bless God for all things great and small.

Jeff

About Us

Understanding

I think you will agree that if we were under God’s laws and not those of man that our world would be ideal. God has addressed every issue in his laws with a solution that makes sense and could and should be used by all. I have been studying numerous books on his laws with the KJV Bible being the center for knowledge and understanding for many years and wish to share my thoughts and welcome your thoughts…
