Teach us to number our days or ‘The days of our lives’!
Sitting here on January 1, 2014, reflecting, doing what might be menial things on this day of the Gregorian calendar, (I think). Or am I living on the Julian calendar? Ever wonder what time it is? No I ‘m not talking about the music hit of the band Chicago, in their debut album from 1969, ‘The Chicago Transit Authority’, although the lyrics are a tad interesting now, 44 years down the road called the Interstate of Life! (How ya doin?) Better yet, how we doing? ‘IF’ = ‘WE’ = The Body of THE Messiah, to some of you, the ‘Christ’.? Aren’t we admonished by ‘Jesus’ to discern what time it is? (Matt 16:4)
What a perfect time to reflect and investigate for yourself, what time is it!? According to The Creator, the One who Created it! Not the ‘other one’ who taught us that it ‘all evolved’ over time! Sheesh, talk about folks trying to frame Truth into conspiracy! Don’t we still teach ‘the science’ that ‘evolution’ is still a theory? Folks, wake up! That’s a conspiracy! Truth is NOT a conspiracy! Read Psalm 1, 74, 31, 64…. You need more? E mail me, Scriptures had PLENTY more!!! Knowing what time it is for those who truly want to help others is part of getting off that ‘conspiracy-theory cycle’ the enemy seduced us with! (Daniel 7:25 go look it up for yourself, don’t take my word for it!)
So here we/I sit on the 1st day of the proverbial ‘new year’ (hmmm whose new year?). So my inspiration for this months article as you can see is from Psalm 90 verse 12. ‘So teach is to number our days, so that we may present to YOU a heart of wisdom’. (please take time to read the entire Psalm when you are by yourself. Read it slow, read it out loud…slowly.) Guess who wrote that psalm? A-ha! You read right over it! Man! Have we been taught wrong! Here’s an axiom you might want to repeat to yourself in this upcoming year, ‘If one is taught wrong, they teach wrong!’ Now go back to Psalm 90 and what do you see before verse 1? Yes! That’s right! It’s part of the Psalm! Book 4 A Prayer of Moses, the man of God. Ever see that before? Didn’t think so, neither did I! Please! Verify me on this, how many psalms did Moses write? ONLY THIS ONE!!!! Might be worthy to read it for yourself sometime, its only 17 verses. Then go and read where Moses was coming from,! Looks like it was from Deuteronomy and Genesis and Exodus, those ‘old ancient books’ that our modern church told us was ‘done away with’ and no longer applicable!
Remember, when one is taught wrong, they teach wrong!
You and I just may have been taught wrong! Is ‘Moses’ important to you? If not, why not? Moses was VERY important to ‘Jesus’! (John 5:46-47) ‘For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?”
May I ask you, why do you default to ‘Paul’ before Moses? When ‘Jesus’ clearly says, that Moses pointed to Him! ‘Jesus’ never quoted ‘Paul’, did you know that? Then why do you? Matter of fact AFTER, the Resurrection, ‘Jesus’ specifically quoted from ‘Moses and ALL the Prophets’ concerning Him! (Luke 24:27) (go read it for yourself. Then ask yourself, why He, NEVER quoted ‘Paul’ and never said, Hey guys look for ‘Paul’ and follow the ‘Romans Road’!)
What time is it?
Is it time to follow the ‘Romans Road’ or the ‘Ancient Paths’? We may have been taught to follow the Romans road by those who have been taught wrong, when His Word says to stand @ the Crossroads and look/observe and there ask for the old/reliable paths! And there! WALK in them!!!! (Implying, not this modern religious crap of ‘reaching out and connecting to’ others to bring them to a building to be tithe/tax paying consumers). Go read it for yourself! Correct me PLEASE! If I am wrong, Jeremiah 6:16, and while you are there, read the whole chapter, read it very slowly and read it out loud!
Question? Why aren’t we walking in those ‘Ancient/Old/Reliable paths to find rest for our souls? Come on man, who isn’t looking for rest these days? How’s the family life? All good @ ‘church’? Hmm….Could it be we in violation of His Word? (notice I asked are WE not THEM!) Remember: ‘IF MY PEOPLE’ who are called by MY name WILL turn from THEIR WICKED ways…. Not the homos/Lesbos, not the liberals, not the ignorant! IT’s you and me Brother and Sister!!! Leave ‘THEM’ alone!
Now is the time to do a ‘time check’, or as we say in Louisiana, Where Y’at?
Some will remember the old soap opera TV show, ‘Days of Our Lives’, in 1965, whoa, way back then! It began with an hourglass (does anyone know what that is? Let alone what time it is.) Anyway, the introduction to the show began with the TV announcer said, ‘Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives’. “Soap Opera’? Nonetheless: Truth, according to Scripture! If your or my foundations are not solid?
(Psalms 11:3) If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?’
We seem to understand when Forest Gump’s Momma taught him, ‘Stupis is as stupid does’, we’ll ‘Righteous is as Righteous DOES’. I’ll tell what the righteous can do? Rebuild the foundations, as per The Creators instructions! Go back the Ancient Paths and there walk in them!
Abraham just didn’t believe and it was counted to him as righteous, Abraham DID what The Creator said!
Deuteronomy 6:25, ‘and it will be righteousness for us, IF we are careful TO DO ALL these commandments before YHVH (THE LORD) our God, as He instructed us!’
Psalm 106:3, “Blessed are they who observe justice and who DO righteousness at all times.” Implying, don’t tell me you are blessed and highly favored if you are not doing righteousness!
Proverbs 21:3, “TO DO righteousness and justice is more acceptable to YHWH than sacrifice”
Jeremiah 22:15, “Do you think you are a king because you closet in cedar? Did not your father eat and drink and DO Righteousness and justice? Then is was well with him.
Revelation 19:8, “it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure’—for the fine linen is the righteous DEEDS of the saints’. Still think you’re The Bride? You may be, I know she does righteous deeds!
So as sands through the hourglass, like the sands of a sandy foundation; Strong winds are blowing, hard rain is gonna fall and violent creeks are rising! (Matt 7 21-29)
“Every man who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like. He is like a man who built a house, and dug deep, and laid its foundations upon the rock; and when the flood came, the flood beat upon that house, and could not shake it; for its foundation was laid upon a rock. And he who hears and does not do them, is like a man who built his house on the earth without a foundation; and when the river beat against it, it fell immediately, and the fall of that house was great. (Luke 6 46-49)
Let’s not be lazy, our days are numbered, Teach yourself how to do what to do, to present Him with a heart of wisdom.
Now is not the time for stupid.
