Many are saying: “Don’t live in fear! And, “We don’t live in fear!” Are you so sure of that?
But then they go out in public, waving around flags. Flags of America. Flags of the Confederacy. Even Swastikas.
Then, when interviewed as to why they aren’t wearing a mask, why they are grouped together by the hundreds, why they are demanding the economy to be opened up, they begin to yell and scream.
ANGER is a mask for FEAR my friends.
They are ALL afraid.
So just WHO is “living in fear?”
Staying home and being cautious is Proverbs 14:16 in action:
“The wise are CAUTIOUS and avoid danger;
fools plunge ahead with RECKLESS confidence..”
JESUS himself showed us the response we should have when Satan told him to jump off the cliff and QUOTED Psalm 91 to Jesus. He took scripture, and dared to quote it back to its author! Really?!
JESUS answered this fool: “DO NOT TEMPT THE LORD YOUR GOD!”
It is ONE thing to trust the Lord with your well being, but it’s another thing to try and take advantage of him.
We CAN and DO stand on HIS word to be safe but we are NEVER to treat him like our magic genie in a lamp who will allow us to run headlong into danger.
If we go into a region where they kill Christians for example, we know we are risking our lives, but we will do that for HIS sake. We trust God in that, but still know we may or may not be martyred.
But we don’t willfully expose ourselves to the elements, we don’t jump into shark infested waters just because, we don’t drink poison, we don’t stop eating food or drinking water. We don’t run wild in the streets late at night where gang land killings are going on. Do we? No! WHY?
Because these things can kill us. We use our COMMON SENSE, and “are CAUTIOUS and avoid danger;
( because) fools plunge ahead with RECKLESS confidence..”
What FRIGHTENS me is that it is very APPARENT you are NOT STUDYING THE BIBLE!
Whatever happened to following what GOD’S OWN WORD says to do and HOW TO ACT in this world!
COME ON! Pick up a bible and read ALL of it! Especially what JESUS said and did! If we say we follow HIM then start with HIS WORDS and ACTIONS. Because, getting in the street, screaming and yelling, and disregarding the LIVES of others is NOT FOLLOWING him but it’s following FEAR.
You can still protest by using social media. Without putting others in danger.
We don’t DARE God! It’s CHILDISH and RECKLESS.
This is a sense of entitlement this needs to be reined in.
The Bible says YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN!
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? YOU ARE NOT YOUR OWN; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
And, the Bible says you are NOT to be a stumbling block. But since you are not apparently reading the Bible maybe that’s the problem?!
“But take heed lest by any means this liberty of yours become a stumblingblock to them that are weak.”
Never place your RIGHTS above human life. THIS IS NOT LIKE CHRIST. 😞
Trust God with your rights. The leaders are trying to save lives – God will keep you. We don’t have to ‘demand’ our ‘rights’. This virus is real. I’ve seen it first hand. GBU Don’t let ‘fear’ of losing your ‘rights’ guide you!
