Hello Journal, I just got away from a comment on Children and Mother or vise-versa? The Lord loves Mothers and Children, we are to honor our Mother and Father, boy the devil has decked himself against me in that department. How I treasure the sacrifice of my Lord when I think about myself and my short-coming. If only there was not devil to stumble our hearts, perhaps we would have a better score in heaven!...
But no good score can earn us salvation, we need Christ, my mother needs Christ, my father needs Christ, my everyone needs Christ. Now parents should not magnify themselves as spotless, denying the cross for everyone. And it's a mistake where the Lord of the house is not Lord but a human lord, a parent who does not recognize divine authority! And it is stressful when the flesh rules a house...
The Lord says that in vain they, I build a house unless he build it! Let turn to the light of God's word for tonigh here and today over there, Galatians 4:24-31,
["...24Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
25For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
26But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
27For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
28Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
29But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
30Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
31So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free...]
Now there a house that the Lord did not build and he tells us,
["...25For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
26But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all...]
The free people are with the Lord, those who trust in the law or anything else are not in house of the Lord, because he tells us. That simple! And the slave woman will be cast out! She will have no part in the inheritance of the saints- the free people of God...
