Whatever happened to, "The meek shall inherit the earth?" And I'm thinking the earth is being ruled with a rod of iron right now. When are the meek, loving, gentle people going to rule? It's only the strong (mentally, physically) who survive down here, at the moment.

Not angry at all, just simply and clearly stating the facts...there you go "supposing" again Heartsong.

Nope...no inner lion here...that's why I responded initially the way I did...was to show that I felt that the lion is something we are commanded NOT to be like...we should always be like a lamb...like Jesus.

Yes...I should...absolutely!

If you know and understand Scripture, you'd know and understand that Jesus...Paul...Peter...Matthew...Mark...Luke...Joh n...Timothy...Silus...Titus...and a whole host of Sabbath keeping disciples taught on the Sabbath too...and they ate grains of corn from an ear of corn in the fields on the Sabbath...or eating the shewbread in the Temple was o.k. too if you were hungry...and that man is more important than a sheep...and if we would save our sheep...we should certainly not hesitate to save another human being!...be it an empty stomach...a wounded heart...a severed soul...or needing care...to show us all that it is good to eat when you hunger on the Sabbath....and Jesus taught us also that it is o.k. tend to the well being of another...and that includes teaching others the precious Word of God! AMEN!!!


God Bless you Heartsong.


In Christ's love...and prayerfully in His truth,
Verna

I am talking about when the powers of this world are gone, and Christ rules in the hearts of mankind, His Love, His Authority, His Kingship.

The Lion of the tribe of Judah.

Meek IS being humbled before the Authority and Kingship of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The meek are poor in spirit.
The meek are afflicted.
The meek are needy.

How do THEY inherit anything? This earth. This time. Not the 'new earth'. This earth. WHEN?

HOW??

When the lambs become lions BY the Lion Himself!


Mankind is too scared of death, especially Christians, when they ALREADY have life eternal. Why doesn't anyone understand this?

It is only because the Christian doesn't quite understand what exactly Jesus' Kingdom looks like, feels like, lives like. Why? Because they are ruled by TWO masters. Too scared. They are living from the corners of the room, looking to the skys for relief. "Help Jesus, I am praying for RAPTURE!", is what we hear these days! "Look here, look there" Well, it is about time to quit looking, and start living.

How about that heart? Let IT be 'raptured'. Transformed, by Him!

Stand up! Be strong! Pray for the courage that comes from the Holy Spirit!

The Lion of the tribe of Judah has given you a kingship. You ARE/WILL BE a lion yourself. The transforming from a week, soft, easily devoured lamb, to a lion who protects, teaches, and submits to no authority outside of our King.

Then, and only then,,,will we rise up,,and the lambs then become lions.

No gunshots from us.
No wars fought by us.
No killing done by us.

Just a simle, yet profound....NO!

They NEED us. We don't need them. Let us all wake up!

"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. "

Peace,

Tony
