Wig’s Word of God Today 4-19-2012
Obedience to God comes before obedience to men! Acts 5:29b
Anyone who does accept His testimony is attesting that God is True. John 3:33
Acts 5:27-33, Psalm 34 & John 3:31-36
There seems to be a lot of confusion in the world when it comes to when we are supposed to be obedient to God’s Word, God’s Decrees and God’s Own Son. Many seem to think they can compromise God’s Word for someone else’s desires or decisions. Let’s look at the example of someone who I met last week who gave a response to a question about someone in Congress who doesn’t follow the Letter of God’s Law when it comes to God’s Own Design of marriage between and man and a woman.
I asked the person if his support followed true Biblical Teachings. His response was selfish and self-serving; “sometimes we have to make compromises.” The amazing thing in this was a 16-year-old Christian girl asked, “But doesn’t God tell us to strive for perfection in everything we do? Without compromise? Without concession? That response doesn’t align with God’s Own Word.” The man walked away embarrassed that a 16-year-old girl could see the Truth without compromise. I pray we all live our lives this way. God’s Own Way! Amen.
A new friend and Brother in Christ described it to me this way: “It is my belief that if we, as Christians, compromise God’s Word for the sake of safety, comfort, expediency or political gain then we are not truly Christians. The life of a soldier is the United States armed forces are to follow orders. Should there be a different set of rules for soldier’s that kill and destroy than a soldier of love and compassion? As a soldier in God’s army we have to follow orders too – the Bible. Following God’s Commandments in politics will not make you be liked or popular but the rewards in God’s eyes are immense. As I said on Saturday, there is only one Truth.” Do you make selfish compromises? Do you believe there is only One Truth?
Dear God, we pray to never make compromises when it comes to following Your Word. We seek Your guidance LORD in practice, prayer and deed. We continue our prayers for Jemma’s recovery. Praying for a friend’s son, Brandel Bryant, who is in prison. Praying for anyone called to write him to contact me for his address. We pray LORD all petitions are gathered to make the ballot. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

As the Crucified One did Prove- John 3:31-36
If you speak on earthly terms
Life of God abates you
If you speak as an Angel
You attest God is True
He sent His Son to testify
In God’s Own Words
In the Spirit of Truth
In the Spirit without reserve
All has been given to Him
The Son of Man so True
All who believe in Him
Has Eternal Life anew
Those who disbelieve
God’s vengeance is Truth
Will have His justice readily
As the Crucified One did Prove
