There is, however, the dreaded expectation of the fiery judgment of hell, which awaits those who spurn God's free gift of deliverance from the torments of a sin-ridden flesh!
So, if you are wholly convinced that you are right about this liberal agenda, or conservative confusion – if you are certain that political correctness trumps the Word of God, and that these gender confused issues – along with the endless list of other fleshly addictions, rebellions and afflictions belonging to the human fallen condition are utterly valid – and if you are quite convinced that God's Word and all who represent it are wrong . . . Then you might want to go ahead and indulge yourself of whatever comfort might be wrought from that other kind of Pot - because a pot of gold waiting for you at the end, there is not!
Nor will there be any real peace of mind, or well-being of body or soul on the journey! We are built, designed, and constructed to resonate with, in and to, the heart-beat of our Creator God – which is set by the perfecting rhythm of His Word, and the various feasts and appointed times, etc. which He set up therein! Meaning that, we thrive best in obedience to His will – which was written, and then expressly demonstrated by Yeshua our deliverer!
And yet we strive more with His design everyday! We do this because it the insidious nature of sin - which lurks in our unredeemed DNA from birth - which causes our discomfort with (and consequent rebellion to) what and who God has made us to be! We strive with Him about everything from our looks, to our metabolism, to our mental make up, to our financial position – and NOW we are even striving with Him over our gender?!!! This is sheer madness!
But He knew it would come, and so this was taken into account in His writings, and He has put forth a clear answer for that dilemma!
You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, "You did not make me"? Can the pot say to the potter, "You know nothing"?
8"Drip down, O heavens, from above, And let the clouds pour down righteousness; Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, And righteousness spring up with it. I, the LORD, have created it. 9"Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker-- An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, 'What are you doing?' Or the thing you are making say, 'He has no hands '?'"…
But who are you, a human being, to talk back to God? Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, 'Why did you make me like this?'"
The point of those passages, from both “Covenants”, is this – He is the ONE who made us all! Then, how dare we quarrel with His choices for us – whether it be gender, economic status, physical looks, mental acumen, or family background? Especially when He has provided healing for every illness caused by sin, and wholeness for every thing that sin will break or twist or destroy in our lives - and - He has promised to meet every real need we would ever have – if we accept it by faith! He has sent a redeemer who, at great cost, bore our sin upon Himself so that we could be free of it! So what are we balling about?!! Stop the whine, and seek the divine, and all will be fine! But continue to mess, wallow in stress, and we'll fail the test and miss His best!
He expects us to come to Him for transformation – of body, soul and spirit - not run to surgeons oe gurus! He expects us to come to Him for healing – not run to doctors or psychologists! They all have their place, of course! And many are called into that specific field by HIS express leading! But they have no cures for us – they can only help us manage it until HE delivers us! But He stands ready, 24/7, to do just that! AND PLEASE NOTE - until we get that balance right, and rightfully acknowledge His place in our lives we will continue to be the disgruntled, confused, messes that we have become! Our individual messes are contributing to the collective disaster we now face as a society!
Again – there is no pot of gold at the end of this gender confused rainbow folks – and there is no rainbow that can keep us from the judgment which has been promised to, and is even now poised to crush, those who reject His solutions to our human condition!
His rainbow was sent to Noah, to assure him that the earth would not be utterly destroyed by water again. But we dare not get smug in our self-righteous idiocy, thinking that we can go on in our stubbornness because He won't ever destroy it! He will not abide sin when He has made every effort to deliver us from it – and its many ravages! The next time the destruction will be by fire instead of water! I do not want to stick around to experience that phenomena!
It is time to stop hi-jacking His symbolism to support our causes! It is time we stopped quarreling with our maker and accepted His excellent help! It is time we stop twisting His Word to suit ourselves, and slandering His character to support our misconceptions! It is time we got off this rainbow of confused gender, and political correctness, before we slide off into the fiery judgment which awaits at the end! God is being mocked to His face every day. It is only a matter of time until He puts an end to it!
That is most definitely NOT the GOOD NEWS! It is the bad news! Unfortunately, that is all that is left if one rejects the good news! The GOOD NEWS is that when the earth burns we need not burn with it, because He has made a way of escape! And this old girl plans to take that escape route in Yeshua the Messiah, and suggest that everyone else follow suit!!
A life lived in and for God will be a bumpy ride, because it goes against the tide of this world! But it also happens to be the ride which stops where I want to get off! We need to think about these things before it is too late!
Don't trust that leprechaun! We all know he lies!!!
Selah (pause and calmly think about that!)
