GOD SPEAKS TO THE JUDGES OF OUR LAND

Psalm 82 is a word from God directed to judges. These are powerful words and timeless (since God is timeless) and could very well be applied to those  judges that sit on the bench in America. There are some very anti God rulings and over turnings that are happening now, that God speaks to here in this chapter that was written some three thousand years ago, but reads like a present day editorial….only the writer of this editorial is God!

 

Be it the Supreme Court, an appellate court, county or local, this is God’s word for you.  From abortion to marijuana, you have Someone you must answer to; so you must be careful in what you decide. The majority opinion poll cannot be the only guiding force in decision making; and neither can your conscience.  The constant we make judgements by is truth.  And all truth is God’s truth as Augustine pronounced many centuries ago.  

 

You may not think you are accountable.

You may think you personally can decide what is right.

God has already declared in His inerrant Word what is right and what is true.

Remember, since God is timeless, His words are truth and His truth has no expiration date.

 

Your accountability is  not just to voters and constituents…..BUT YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE PRIMARILY TO GOD

And Psalm 82 is your reminder….God is sending a message to the court system of America.

THE AMAZING NOW BECOMES MORE AMAZING

I love the verse in Matthew 19:26 “with man this is impossible BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.”

 
What is exciting is what this verse is connected to.
This is a response to a question.
The question makes this amazing verse more amazing.
 
Here is the question from verse 25:  “Then who in the world can be saved?”
 
The disciples were asking this after the Rich Young Ruler walked away from Jesus.
They, probably thinking of others that needed to follow Jesus, asked this question that we also ask at times.
Our question will be more like this:  “Will my mother, my father, my family ever get saved?”
And the answer to that question is….
 
WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

“ARE YOU SERIOUS?”: MAKING PROMISES AT THE MOST UNPROMISING TIME

There is a little verse in Psalm 105 where the Holy Spirit goes back a few thousand years to tell us about “when” God promised something at an unpromising time.

 

11 Saying, “ To you I will give the land of Canaan

As the portion of your inheritance,”

12 When they were only a few men in number,

Very few, and strangers in it

(Psalms 105:11-12)

 

This little portion of Scripture is pretty amazing and pretty typical of God.  He promises stuff when it seems impossible

 

GOD SAID (to Abraham)….I WILL GIVE YOU THE LAND OF CANAAN

 

HIS POSITION….only a few people….in fact ,very few it says….and to add insult to injury, they are strangers in the land.  Very unpromising resources to make this kind of promise.  

I will give you the land is insane.
