Ricochet

Admittedly this post is intended as ricochet ministry. Described by a beloved Pastor (my paraphrase) as bouncing the message off my regular Readers (who highly likely have already embraced it and will) hopefully rebound it to others who might benefit. 

The picture is copied from a public domain and is pictured here as the springboard for this essay. This picture does not tell the whole story though. Does it?

It does tell me the targeted man is only valued, and the wife deems herself only loved, when the husband conforms to all the wishes and dictates of the wife. It tells me the wife sees herself predominately as One to be served rather than a partner in service. This is heartbreaking for both of them.
The pictured message is the opposite of the Spirit of Scripture. It is a 180 in the wrong direction from the principles that make for a healthy, happy marriage.  Biblical Principles when applied and treasured by BOTH will bring Life to life. 

Marriages are BUILT, not by one, not by two but by Three – GOD and the two. This building happens when the two individually love GOD FIRST and Secondly, love their mate more than they love their own needs, ways and comforts.  

Scripture does not give the option – I will if he will – someone has to start and the one who starts and does not give up reaps a harvest of plenty. 

Such is rare in our world because marriages today are contracts made to be broken instead of covenants entered for keeping in JESUS name. 

I know whereof I speak  – I’ve had both! The contract for breaking and the Covenant for keeping and that means SOMETHING!

So let us not grow weary of doing what is good; for if we don’t give up, we will in due time reap the harvest.  source

Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. 
Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit. source

Hidden For Now

I’ve heard a few say that all that is hidden will be revealed. 
Sounds good, doesn’t it? Especially when we are referring to political corruption.
I would love it!!

It’s a Bible quote. 1 Corinthians 4:5
I don’t think it is the promise they hope.
Let’s read it. 

See those words: Before the Lord returns? 
This text sounds to me like we are only promised full disclosure when all is said and done and we have vacated the planet – perhaps at the time of the Judgment Seat of Christ and the Great White Throne Judgment. 
I think some evils and their doers just might be hidden a little longer than we think. Or not. Time will tell. 

After all, it’s been 57 years since the assassination of JFK and we still don’t know for CERTAIN who killed him.  BUT GOD does and He keeps perfect records. 
We can rest easy, all will be revealed in His time.
