September 17  HAPPY 40TH ERIC!
Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.  Ephesians 5:1 ESV
2 Kings 24-25

The most innocent of blood is shed right here in the USA.  If you have had an abortion please talk to us or go to the Pregnancy Center as they have a counseling program for this very thing (women and men!), but know that God can forgive you and will if just allow Him to do so!  
“… as the Lord had foretold.”  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome…This is why I detest revisionist history because the evils that have been done must be a reminder so hopefully, we don’t repeat that history.  The schoolbooks and laws have become complete lies in this arena.  The confederate flag should hang as a reminder, as one example so the sin of slavery is never repeated yet it is being repeated with sex trafficking right here in our own small community!  God gives us reminders continuously in the Word so we learn to see evil as despicable.  Look what has happened since the Bible and prayer were pulled from our schools in the early 60’s.  Just saying!
Drought is indicative of sin.  The poorest of the land were not left because of any kindness of the king’s part but because the Lord said He would leave a remnant of the people and He did.  
Ezekiel 13
There is a man running for office that calls himself a believer that says it is okay to kill a baby in utero even right before it would be born.  He has completely taken Scripture out of context.  Our Lord Yeshua told us to stay alert and be aware of false prophets.  He will eventually deal with them but in the meantime,  we must refrain from their lies.  God will always deliver His righteous no matter what is going on around them.  Thank You Lord that You said You would never leave or forsake us and You have never left me!
Romans 2
I cannot judge lest I want to be judged.  It is because of God’s kindness (mercy) through others that I was led to redemption and I am ever so grateful.  God shows no partiality and each of us will be judged according to our own fruit, whether it be fruit that glorifies God or fruit that does not glorify Him.  God, in His kindness has written right and wrong on our hearts but if one continues in wrong the heart gets hardened against God.  The one who does right by God with a soft heart loving Him and others receives His blessing.  It is true hypocrisy that turns people away from God.  Lord, deal with me if I am a hypocrite in any area of my life because I want none turned away but all to come to You!  God is interested in the spirit of the law and not the letter of the law!  This is how I am to live!
Meditate & Apply: Truth and not lies are what is needed.  If I am not truly honest with myself, how can I be with anyone else?  I am so grateful that my God is with me.  I cannot just except the Word of anyone but must test all things by the Word of God.  I have no right to.  Live righteously after my God is what I must do for He has forgiven me so very much! Living by the spirit of the law helps keep me from judging others and thus myself being judged.  Live one life and encourage others to live for the Lord.
