Rule over Sin
When we were in darkness the conscience was defiled and we laboured with the things of the world to find our peace and security.
We were instructed to pursue knowledge that would benefit our goals and to find our place in the social pecking order.
We did this with zeal patterning ourselves after those we admired whether family or otherwise. As the animal kingdom flows with its signature we thought we were acceptable by confirming that same aspiration.
Now we know who the author of the flesh is. We were wicked in our ignorance and boasted with unclean lips.
We mocked God!
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
In our faithless ignorance we were constructing our own prison as we consented to the Principle. Who is the Principle of our thoughts? Satan the king of the proud.
We were slaves and didn’t know it.
The House you Built becomes your Prison
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
We sowed to the imagination to be a god and to dominate the weaker. We used our Will to exalt ourselves. God labelled us the children of Cain.
“He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.”
The bitterness of our soul we let flow from our heart to poison those under the same spell. We were evil in knowledge and wicked in choices but we professed our self righteous in our cause. But we were of unclean lips and a corrupt heart.
“Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God:for I am the Lord your God.”
We thought we were keeping the 10 commandments and view our aspirations and principle with favour but were as filthy rags in the presence of God.
We were teaching our own principle how we wish to be treated. Oh how foolish we were. We were again giving Satan rule over our will by agreeing with our own passions.
“Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege?”
By faith in the covenant we remove the face of the wicked one before our eyes. The Spirit begins to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Those things which we thought were valuable to identify our self worth are now being removed. The memorials of death unto death as our Jericho are diminished by the power of God through cycles of our growth following the priesthood of our faith.
“ I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.”
We begin to burn the unsanctified burdens we agreed to under that spell of Satan’s perception.
Years unto the Cruel one
“Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.”
Consider this example
When you play basketball you ruled the ball deciding its path.
But in the lake of fire that same slave of your will which served your aspiration shall be your master. Now the slave of your pleasure is your harsh judge and its appetites must be fed and your will becomes as that ball.
“Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:”
The God-code of the power is driving the Principle into madness. Like a starving beast it stalks you imposing its desires upon you as you did to others while you lived upon the earth.
Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you.
Luke 6:31 “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”
The Lord teaches us longsuffering to prepare us as rulers of the eternal inhertiance. Shall we imitate Satan’s character or Christ’s?
“An evil man seeketh only rebellion: therefore a cruel messenger shall be sent against him.”
The protesters of righteousness learned how to riot against God by the murmuring of Satan. Why should the cruel one show you mercy when you despised the mercy of God. You loved cursing, so now cursing rules without any resolve for peace.
“All thy lovers have forgotten thee; they seek thee not; for I have wounded thee with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of thine iniquity; because thy sins were increased.
The Principle (power) will find no rest nor will it consent to you having rest. The will of sinners casts up its iniquities as mud. The righteous drink of the river of Life now by faith in Jesus Christ, but the wicked dine on the bread of deceitfulness now and forever.
“But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.”
Because the sinners delighted in oppression they thought they were gods. The ungodly set standards to measure the works of others on the scale of lies (falsehoods).
But Christ grants us gifts to serve Him in truth. The wicked have no rest!
“Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.”
Sinners labour with iniquity and spoil with their vanity and then the world accuses God of this inequity when they themselves are at fault for the choices they make. That is proof of the wickedness of their heart. This they learn since their youth following the madness of the former generation, (Genesis 8:21) learning the ways of the Gentiles.
Concupiscence and Pleasure
“Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.”
The Building Blocks for the Rod of His Anger
Sinners put the rod of their own sufferings into the malicious hands of the principle and then they wonder why things sour on them to their own hurt.
“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”
The way of faith is strange to the sinner (grace resister). They have always viewed life from the principles of others and now faith says that perception is incorrect. It was always incorrect, but the sudden reality takes the sinner by surprise forcing them to throw down that rod. Now the imagination suffers loss and they feel naked.
Starve the Beast
As Christ rules the conscience we have peace. We put-on Christ as we labour with the tokens of the priesthood of the covenant. By faith we put to death the old man, that power that ruled our habits of pride and self-worth. God is breaking the staff of bread and giving us manna.
Things must change for you now if you are to rule in righteousness.
“For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water.”
Believers put their confidence in the rhythm of nature. They feel in control if they can predict the outcome to be favourable for their efforts. This is why God had to bring Israel into the wilderness. To re-educated them in faith and to remove their false confidence which Egypt taught them. Many believers will murmur the change.
We must learn of Christ.
“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:”
The dry places of the soul are where the scorpions and the serpents dwell. The soul without virtue is thorny and full of troubles. The proud live there. The Principle rules the unclean heart. People feel they have the control but the night comes when they creep out.
If you wish to crush the serpents head you must remove the rod of the principle and humbly submit to grace. The voice of grace is as a whisper to instruct you and waits patiently for your consent.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
But the way of the wicked is hard, and that hardness of heart consents to the principle that the instruction is good.
“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out.”
Come into the priesthood of the covenant and cast away the unclean thing and return to the Lord of Peace that you may be children of peace and reign with Christ in peace, amen.
