True Perspective 1

"You need the right perspective at times like these.  A right perspective will keep you from losing your footing when things go awry.

A false perspective or a warped perspective will alter the truth and the realty you live in.  God wants you to believe that things are the way He say’s they are, not the way a media personality say’s they are.

A pro-active perspective will help you see more clearly when troubles come, and they will come.

I want to lay out what I believe is our present day reality according to God, but along with that I am also going to lay out what the adversary is trying to make you think.

Let’s see what God says first.  Turn with me to Jeremiah 5:22-24.  The book of Jeremiah was written 600 years before the birth of Christ, but the message is just as pertinent as the day it was written.  The Word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, not some new message, but the same message that was spoken from the beginning, just as the message today is not some new message, but the same message as from the beginning.

Jer 5:22  Fear ye not me? saith the LORD: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it? 
Jer 5:23  But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. 
Jer 5:24  Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest. 

This is the proper perspective.  God wants you to recognize Him.  “Fear ye not me? Saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence…?”
God is an all consuming fire – Hebrews 12:29
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge…” Proverbs 1:7

God is Holy and just – Righteous – Sovereign – Perfect – Omnipresent – Omnipotent – Immutable, unchangeable – all Powerful and in total and unquestionable control. What is it about that that you don't like?"
