“Who Rules?” Now Think On This by Steve Martin

June 5, 2020 Love For His People ministry in Charlotte, North Carolina USA

“Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.” Revelation 14:14-16, NKJV

Powerful forces of evil continue to wage war against the One who alone is seated on the throne, the One who alone judges in righteousness, the One who alone can and will establish His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

Pandemics, murders, riots, abortions, upheavals arising in the nations continue. Evil abounds as those opposed to the plans and purposes of the Almighty One seek to destroy the lives of His creation, believing that they are in full control of the economies, governments, and educational systems of the world.

While some would call out the message to love all, accept all, believe all…He calls it defiled love, which is not love at all, but rather perverted, misplaced, self-love, seeking its own lustful fulfillment.

Satan had long ago begun his intent to replace the Lord Jesus as the lord of all. Hatred within his heart for the manifest presence of the Lord in His people, the Jews, and Christians, has long been his plan of action. Destroy them and he rules. Not.

The definition of “defile” and “defiled” reads as follows:

verb (used with object), de·filed, de·fil·ing.

to make foul, dirty, or unclean; pollute; taint; debase.

to violate the chastity of.

to make impure for ceremonial use; desecrate.

to sully, as a person’s reputation.

The evil plan of man opposed to the eternal plans of the Lord, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as One, will always defile the love of God, the mercy of God, the righteousness of God. They will seek to replace His character with the opposite, all the while cloaked in darkness so that the generations are blinded to the One who alone can save, redeem, and give life that so many seek.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” Galatians 5:22-24, NASU

The verses before that are exactly what is being displayed today as the result of each seeking his own, thinking he is in control of his life.

“For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:17-22, NASU

Those who resort to the deeds of the flesh will be eternally condemned. Their actions and words reveal that which is in their hearts, as they vainly seek to rule the world.

But our God only laughs. For He knows the beginning to the end.

“Why the big noise, nations? Why the mean plots, peoples? Earth-leaders push for position,

Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks, the God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers: “Let’s get free of God! Cast loose from Messiah!”

Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing. At first he’s amused at their presumption; then he gets good and angry. Furiously, he shuts them up: “Don’t you know there’s a King in Zion? A coronation banquet is spread for him on the holy summit.” Psalm 2:1-6, THE MESSAGE

And as the same passage in the Complete Jewish Bible reads, “Why are the nations in an uproar, the peoples grumbling in vain? The earth’s kings are taking positions, leaders conspiring together, against Adonai and his anointed.

They cry, “Let’s break their fetters! Let’s throw off their chains!”

He who sits in heaven laughs; Adonai looks at them in derision. Then in his anger he rebukes them, terrifies them in his fury. “I myself have installed my king on Tziyon, my holy mountain.”

Our God reigns. Don’t ever forget that. In the midst of complete chaos, even as it was in the very beginning, in Genesis before He spoke the Word and His beautiful creation occurred from out of chaos, so He will again show forth His glory and might. What we will see then, when He is finished with His glorious work, in beauty and power, will make us forget all this that now seems to engulf everything around us.

Revelation 15:3-4 “Great and wonderful are the things you have done, Adonai, God of heaven’s armies! Just and true are your ways, king of the nations!  Adonai, who will not fear and glorify your name? because you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous deeds have been revealed.” Complete Jewish Bible

Look up! Our redemption draweth nigh! The Lord Jesus, the Messiah will return soon! He is the One who sits on the throne! He is the One Who rules!

Now think on this.

Ahava and shalom,
