For the entire fullness of God’s nature dwells bodily in Christ, and you have been filled by him, who is the head over every ruler and authority. Colossians 2:9-10 CSB
1 Samuel 31
Though we knew Saul et al were going to lose their lives, it is still sad as to how all of this came about. What an example of what happens to the mind of people who don’t have the right mind of Messiah. Unfortunately though Jonathan was a great and faithful man of God, because of his father’s sin he had to pass also so that the Word of the Lord would be fulfilled and no person from Saul’s descendants would ever be able to take the thrown. Sin affects even the innocent including family and this must be thought of thoroughly before any Believer transgresses the Word of our Lord. I am sure that Jonathan and David were more than joyful when David entered heaven and could eternally be with his BFF!
The consequence to sin is horrific. Though the earth suffers because of it, I am so very grateful, beyond any words could express to my God and my Savior for what He did for me at Calvary! I know there is tribulation upon this earth but think how it would be if Messiah never gave His life for all of our sin! Disaster comes because of disobedience and it affects so many! Our offerings and sacrifices have no mean if we give them unworthily. Tithing does not negate sin, repentance does. The Lord HATES dishonest gain! Jeremiah had a difficult position yet God’s grace is sufficient for each of us with our God-given Call.
