Very few ever find it.

Isaiah 66:2
Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.

Parents not shown but
Taking pics of their kids and saying -my kid is starving -what are you going to do about it ?

He picks her up and swings her around.*
This remains the scenario for years..now it's time for graduation presents...who do ya
think gets the red convertible?

The dad loves 'em all, tho.


* That's how I identify myself with my Heavenly Father, btw.
He picks me up and throws me in the air.
The false gospel of grace, known as being in God's favor, was propagated by the shepherd who was called "Favor" per Zechariah 11:10. He was one of two shepherds/staffs taken to shepherd the flock "doomed to slaughter" (Zech 11:7). They would be the two horns of beast, with two horns like a lamb, Constantine, the institutor of the Roman Church, who built his Roman church on the foundation of Peter and Paul. To have Constantine's mark, is to drink from the cup of God's wrath during the period of the "awesome day of the LORD" (Revelation 14:10). At that time, there would probably be no gas for your red convertible, and the electronics would probably be fried. If kept in underground storage, it might be nice to look at, but you will probably have to push it where ever you wanted to take it. God's house is built using justice and righteousness. Paul's gospel of grace, is a house built around the "big lie", whereas you "surely shall not die", just believe in what I say.

Is that the "favor" you expect?

Neither did Job--but it happened to him anyway. God set Job straight in the end, but He put Job's "church" family to shame because they expected God to act in a certain way for particular reasons. Yet Job is God's witness to us that being in His "favor" doesn't always work out like we think it should.

Yet He expects us to trust Him regardless of our circumstances and in spite of what WE think is right.


Should I pray for you that God will see you in the same light as He did Job, His good and faithful servant?
