More here to mete the eye or from whence turns our focus…
boundaries ‘ere set to purposely grant us out our limit,
know none and be as ‘a cut flower’ in this life without the
means to sustain it, it is God’s will not ours… must submit,
to do as we desire may not meet God’s desire for us or from
our own actions comes our own punishment, severed vine…
cut off from our very source of life to begrudge the Creator
His will… when pure and true are His thoughts so divine,
none shall escape the mete of His hands when His fill of
us has come to the end of the ages, beginning to the end,
and those found without His blood, love or fruit so grown…
need not ask,”What did I not do?,” your will tries to defend.
So fickle are the ways of man and mankind… to presume one’s moral compass is intact but it merely points the direction to what they might find pleasing to themselves. So too will be the coming alignment… the lines being drawn in the sands of time will mark the passing of the age of man to the boundaries of the next. It is the travails of the birthing process to ’the change coming’ which we are currently experiencing, and the presumed grating some would say they feel (through the course of interaction with others… if different views exist) is but a sensation of this truth. Just how moral are we becoming if one can do and say as they feel but another is denigrated for doing the same thing?
Many are the varied sayings that have come out to point the way to fulfill man’s desires, like ”It’s all good” or ”Do your own thing” or “Do as thou wilt” or “Do as ye will” and “I did it my (own) way.” These sayings, and some have been around longer than most would think probable, have been around a long time… and, sadly, the philosophy of “Do as thou wilt” comes from the notion of disobedience, disregard and dissonance- a lack of harmony. This is not a modern aberration or thing being stated and contained to current times but the times we are in will, and do, reflect more on this as being the prevalent sign of the age we are in… the time I’d call,”Novis Ordo Seclorem (New Order of the Ages).”
This simply begs the question,”Which do you choose… God’s side or man’s? To choose the victor or… God reigns supreme in all the affairs of man. To doubt this is to doubt the veracity of God Himself!
[The abstract below is from here on ‘opinion’]
In Ecclesiasticus 3:24, we have, “For many are deceived by their own vain opinion” (hupolepsis, “a taking up,” “a hasty judgment”), the Revised Version (British and American) The conceit of many hath led them astray.
A contest of wills between God’s or man’s is best seen with the Prophet Elijah and at Mount Carmel. If you can find it in your heart for your mind to change… clarity to your thinking is refreshed and renewed again? Good Friday is quickly upon us… so to is the close of the Age of Man. A ‘free will choice’ of whom we shall serve is the choice we (all) have for this Passover, 2017.
Mount Carmel is a time of dispelling: opinion, myth or notion to who God is vs. what we think God is! It is called El-Mohrakah, “the Burning,” or “the Burnt Place.” The impression on the minds of the people was that of admiration mingled with awe; and with one voice they acknowledged the supremacy of Jehovah as the true God. God directed and overruled the issue… as He still does in the affairs of mankind.
Elijah on Mount Carmel
1 Kings 18:36-39 36 And it came to pass, at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near and said, “Lord God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that You are God in Israel and I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. 37 Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that You are the Lord God, and that You have turned their hearts back to You again.” 38 Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. 39 Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God!”
