It may appear that I go overboard with this but I can't help it. I get started with this stuff and can't stop. I love the parallels in Scripture. Math and mathematical principles abound in the Word of God. God is very precise in everything that He does, and we govern our lives according to that precision.
Well, did I leave you scratching your head last week? Let’s see if we can do some more head scratching this week as we look at more mathematical arrangements in the Word of God. A lot of people don’t realize just how precise God is! Think about the layout of the Universe. There is nothing random about it. When God spoke those fateful words, “Light be!” (“Let there be light, KJV”) Creation began unfolding instantly. He never told it to stop, and as a matter of fact, the Universe is still expanding as we speak. It has never stopped. In any case, let’s continue where we left off last week.
We’ve been dealing with some pretty weighty topics over the last months. Let’s take a break for the next few weeks and take a look at some unusual mathematical features that appear repetitiously in the Word. I’ve always been a math hound and numbers played a great part in my early education (hence, a substantial part of my business career being based in math).
Well, I’m hoping I can wrap up this part of the series today in our look at the life of David and what he had to overcome between the time he was anointed by Samuel and took the throne of Judah and Benjamin some 13 years later prior to taking the throne of the entire nation of Israel.
We left off last week talking about Thomas Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptist Church. That letter has become so distorted and mis-used since the FDR Supreme Court ruled that “Freedom of Religion” and “Separation of Church and State” meant that no state-run agency of facility could promote the name of Jesus Christ under the guise that it infringed on the rights of other religions. What a farce! What a fraud! Let’s dig down deeper into this discussion today as we pick up where we left off last week. Understand that, as we do so, we are now discussing issues that became part of the foundational understanding that eventually formed our Constitution.
Guess I need to finish my story regarding my congressional campaign in 2003-2004. My story is really nothing but a microcosm of what has taken place nationally in our abandonment of responsibility for the nation, and accepting the instruction that Paul gave to Timothy when he wrote, I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (I Timothy 2:1-4)
Last week's sharing spent a bit more time than planned on William Penn. Meant to hold down the length a little more, but I really wanted to finish up in one day with William Penn and his establishing of the Pennsylvania Colony. Still, the history and details of Penn's faith, and the lengths to which he went to incorporate a firm understanding of God's governance in our society are nothing less than amazing!
As we get into today’s sharing, let me ask you this question. Are you beginning to see just how much the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ was incorporated into the foundations of the United States of America? Are you seeing the covenant commitment that our founding fathers had with the Lord, and why they were so driven to establish a nation in which Jesus Christ was Lord?
Let’s see if we can wrap this up today. I know that some of what I’ve shared may have stepped on some folks’ religious understanding and/or doctrines, but this revelation is critical for this particular time. Jesus is coming for an overcoming Bride – and folks, we have a lot of overcoming in front of us. Never have we had such a nation divided! Never have we had such full-blown demonic activity on display. Never have we in America seen such efforts of the Enemy to destroy every vestige of our relationship with Jesus Christ. It is time for us to overcome all of this and to take our places of responsibility in this hour!
We ran a bit long last week, and we may run a bit long again this week, but I want to share as much of this revelation with you as I can in the shortest amount of time. We wrapped up last week by saying that Jesus does make requirements for healing, for health, for life, for receiving from Him. The first and most basic is, faith.
