Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up. Romans 15:2 ESV
 
Joshua 9 

Once again, the counsel of the Lord was not sought.  Hello!  If this message is speaking loud and clear to me, I don’t know what is!  I always think about John Bevere’s book, Good or God and the multiple times I have reviewed the subject matter in facilitating the Champion Class.  What seems good to man is not necessarily God!  Discerning good from evil is a sign of spiritual maturity.  If I don’t know, just ask my God and He will tell me every time!  Our God is very serious about covenants and this is not so in our society in this day.  People don’t pay bills and take the easier way out with bankruptcy (a contract is a covenant), there is much divorce, etc.  The Gibeonites were a shrewd people and understood that being servants of Israel was much better than being wiped out completely.  They heard the ways of God and used their shrewdness to fool Joshua.  If only the unsaved would be shrewd enough to hear the ways of God and fear Him!  
 
Revelation 15:4 (ESV)
4 Who will not fear, O Lord,
and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
and worship you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.

 

Isaiah 13 
We should mourn greatly for the Day of the Lord when His wrath is loosed upon the earth.  So many need You Lord.  As much as I desire Your return, I more desire the salvation of the many!  
 
…22b its time is close at hand
and its days will not be prolonged.

 
Hebrews 7

The Lord is to get a tenth part of all He has given me.  You Lord are King of Righteousness and of Peace, oh hallelujah!  God cannot lie and tithing brings blessing!  Who is foolish enough not to tithe?  No, I won’t take it back for it is the Truth of the Word of God!  Lord Yeshua, You are our High Priest because of the power of Your indestructible life!  Thank You for being and giving us a better covenant, Lord Yeshua Messiah!  You are our High Priest forever because of Your immortality!  No one can or will every replace You!  Your days are not numbered!  They are forever!  And I get to have a relationship with You!  
 
26 For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens. 27 He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself. 28 For the law appoints men in their weakness as high priests, but the word of the oath, which came later than the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever.
 
Meditate & Apply: Today, I want to meditate on two things.  Being shrewd when it comes to the things of God so I get what I need and the power of Covenant.
 
 Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves; so be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.  Matthew 10:16 (NASB)

Thank You Lord, you help us discern good from evil, and it is clear to us each and every time. Thank You Lord we have a relationship with you that is everlasting.
