…for “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.” And this word is the good news that was preached to you. 1 Peter 1:24-25 ESV
2 Chronicles 25
“not with a whole heart”…We don’t get to pick and choose what we like and don’t like from the Scriptures. Either the entire Word is truth or none of it is.
Things have not changed as the laws that are being made are ones that find fault with the Word of God. I truly like how king Darius prayed and fasted for Daniel, knowing Daniel was a man that had the Spirit of God abiding in him. Prayer for those facing persecution is so important. Lord, today I lift of all of the Iranians who must hide their faith so they are not killed. Protect them and may Bibles get to them and may these people be cared for with every need met.
2 Thessalonians 2
Deception has always been around but it seems so much stronger now than it has during my lifetime. The problem with it of course is that when deceived it is not known to the person by the very nature of deception. This is why the Bible is my primary source because it has proven its truth to me again and again. I am so grateful for truth that is preached and pray for those that are watering down the gospel just to have numbers in their sanctuaries that they return to the Truth or leave the pulpits so the sheep don’t get taken out. I surely would not want to stand before the Lord on the Day of Judgment if I changed the meaning of His Word!
Apply Today: I have chosen God (rather He has chosen me and I say "yes". Lord Yeshua is not just my savior but my LORD and therefore I choose to live by His Word as He has proved over and over again that it is ALL true. Tearing out the pages we don’t like does change anything. Prayer is so much more important than we realize! Also, I truly hate, yes strong word, but hate, manipulation! Not the person, just the action! Stand firm in the Truth (God, Himself) today (and every day). What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his own soul? (Matthew 6:26)
What you said about not being able to pick what scriptures to believe reminded me of where it said not to add to nor take away from the word, and how dangerous it is for those who have modified bibles to do just that for their cult. Scary. Yes, stand firm in the truth today!
Very scary! Especially for those misleading the people!
