Blessed Is The Man Who Walks In The Council Of God, Part 2

Blessed Is The Man Who Walks In The Council Of God, Part 2

In part one of this series I mentioned a quote by the poet Robert Frost in which he said, “There were many roads emerging from the wood, but we took the one less traveled; and it has made all the difference.”

Choices Have Consequences

Frost’s quote presents an immutable principle which is, “All choices result in consequences.” This is something that needs to be instilled in every child from birth to protect it from itself, and also the world.

This is something I learned about in bits and pieces through experience over a period of forty, or maybe fifty years; not completely coming to the realization that this is an immutable principle that holds when choices are made and followed up with action, then the consequences are deliberate. They’re going to happen – no way to avoid them.

This applies to both negative choices and positive ones. When we make a positive choice in life, and commit to a definite follow-up then the odds are that a positive result will follow. However, if we make wrong choices and follow-up with action to bring them to success, then it is a given that the results will be in consequences relating to the choices.

In Romans 1, the apostle Paul presents to us some revelations concerning those that make wrong choices, either of not submitting to God and his ways, or of choosing to become completely anti-God and being at war with him as well as all those who accept him and his principles.

There are those who might contend that the reason for this is because the people Paul is speaking of simply don’t know anything about God and his ways, or if he even exists, but let’s look at Romans 1:18 – 20.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteous of men, who hold the truth in unrighteous. (Hold back the truth)

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things; of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Continuing in verse 21.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 – Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 – And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

Now we come to the part where the consequences begin to kick in; the next verse states,

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.

and in verse 25,

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator.

In view of what Paul has stated, it becomes clear that we can entirely dismiss the idea that the people Paul was speaking about were completely ignorant of God and his existence.

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them…so that they are without excuse.

It is impossible to be against something which in one’s mind doesn’t exist and many of those who reject God are in complete rejection of God’s very existence. Yet they continue to actively oppose Him in everything.

Manmade Laws

Let’s take the abortion issue, the proponents of which continue to contend that the unborn child is nothing more than a glob of flesh, and therefore, it is not a person so it is not murder to dispose of it. But what does God say about that?

Exodus 21 – 22 has this to say on the subject:

If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.

And verse 23 continues with,

And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life.

God’s Words make it completely clear that this is an unborn child and this is true to anyone with a sane mind. However, we have to remember that we are dealing with people who have been turned over by God to a reprobate mind, otherwise they would not be seeing things as they do. So, they do not have a sane mind to think with. Not only that, but they do not even have reference point to start with in trying to discern right from wrong.  Thus, the reprobate mind is incapable and completely out of character for logical thinking regarding right and wrong.

Back to verse 21

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

So, as we see here, after knowing God, and refusing to glorify him for whom he was, for the simple reason that they had become conceited in their imaginations, possibly perceiving themselves to be equal with, if not superior to God, then their foolish heart was darkened. And, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Romans 1:24 states

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.

Romans 1:26 says

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use (of their bodies) into that which is against nature.  (Italics mine)

Lev. 18:22

Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind.

Continuing into verse 27:

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence (reward) of their error which was meet.  (Italics mine)

And additionally, Eph. 5:12

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

And here I can’t help thinking of some of our Supreme Court Justices, and what they contend with and support as law, regardless of the scriptural evidence to the contrary. All rights come from God and nowhere else; and certainly not from an anti-God government. So, if all rights come from God, and they do, then it necessarily follows that all authority comes from the same source. Therefore, all law, or what is said to be law, in order to be what it is said to be must necessarily be backed by Gods authority, or otherwise it is not law, but only force.

It is fully evident to me that to only glance through and note the high spots of Romans 1, without mentioning many other biblical references for those making laws which give rights, i.e., license, to a segment of the population and abrogating that which is according to God’s word, is an abomination to Him and is completely unthinkable to anyone with a sane mind.

Again, we have to remember that these are people who have been turned over by God to a reprobate mind. Therefore, they are incapable of thinking sanely about things relating to God and his ways.

As a prime example of this, let’s review the decision by the Supreme Court on the gay marriage issue.

According to an article in News with Views Justice Kennedy, writing the majority decision said, “Under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. The fundamental liberties protected by this Clause include most of the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights.”

It appears that this was the authority upon which the Court found that “gay people” have a fundamental right to marriage; this is what Justice Kennedy stated in the writing of the majority opinion. Did he not know that by calling it a fundamental right is a veiled assertion that this right comes from God?

How could anyone with a sane mind perceive that the right for “gay people” to marry is authorized and enumerated in the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment? At the time when the Fourteenth Amendment became a part of the Constitution there had been no thoughts concerning the possibility of “gay people” having the right to marry. So how could it have been enumerated in the Bill of Rights? It couldn’t have.

This is what those of the satanic agenda for world government do. It is an integral part of their method of operation, (modus operandi) which they are committed to. They will state something which is, or equates with a supposition, i.e., thought to be some part of the Constitution and use this as authority for whatever they are trying to establish as being a legitimate part of the law.

And here again, we find that Justice Kennedy has implicitly asserted that something exists which doesn’t, the fundamental right of “gay people” to marry. But there’s nothing new about this, it’s what they do.

There is much more to be said on this subject of how the influence of people like those discussed by Paul in Romans 1 plays out into society in ways that result in millions of people, especially children through the foster care program being consigned to hell.
