No Gray Areas With God

Gray area

There are no gray areas when it comes to God. He makes it very plain, curses or blessings it is your choice. Read Deuteronomy Chapter 28. God does not force us to choose Him. You are free to choose who you will serve. The Pharisees and Sadducees manipulated and misinterpret the laws of God to fit their lifestyle and made the wrong decision to crucify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on the cross – by the way should this have been considered an obstruction of justice as we know it today and by definition: (the crime or act of willfully interfering with the process of justice and law especially by influencing, threatening, harming, or impeding a witness), because either they didn’t believe or could comprehend who he was or the truth that he came to do the will of his Father: In Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. God’s word will always come to pass and is true through the ages. And it goes on to say in Luke 19:10, For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which is lost. It was all in God’s plan. John the Baptist was sent from God to bear witness that Jesus was the true Light. Read John 1: 6-29. Jesus was a witness of the truth, John 18:37, Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

I believe the answer is yes, many tried to obstruct justice and no they didn’t succeed. John the Baptist told of his coming. Jesus came, he died for you and me, and rose with all power. God is in control. John1:1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. God is the only one who can say when it is finished. There are no gray areas with God. Either you believe or you don’t. People choose to sin or not to sin. Be obedient and receive the blessings of God or sin and live with the consequences and curses that can plague you and your family.  

God does not sugar coat his word. He is not a sometime God he is faithful and an on-time God and his word will not come back void. Society may have gray areas…we have laws then we make ungodly exceptions that are against everything God says in his word. Live for God at all times. Do not accept the gray areas. There is no meeting in the middle therefore no middle ground. God’s judgement is not gray. It will happen when and how he says it will. We should be thankful that God makes it clear for us. He doesn’t want us to stumble. He doesn’t want us to succumb to the snares of the enemy. God doesn’t want us in a world of confusion because the word says God is not the author of confusion.

God’s word is transparent with no gray areas to be found anywhere in his word. God is our strength; he is all powerful and keeps his promises. The God who created the sun, moon, stars, and made man from the dust of the earth is the I AM. In society there are shades of gray and things are not clear and leaving you with some doubt in your mind. Laws of the land may not be clear with revisions being made every time we turn around to suit this group of people or that group of people. The wording is unclear and you don’t know what is right and what is wrong. You don’t know what the truth is or what to believe because it’s about furthering their own agenda. God had the master plan from the beginning and that he came in the volume of a book and it is written of Him…. the truth.

Lord thank you for your word which is the blueprint for our life. Thank you for equipping us with everything we need to get through. God thank you for making your word plain, there are no do overs or revisions, it stands and it is truth. With your word there are no misunderstandings or gray areas about the blessings or curses that can come from our actions. We adore you and we honor you and believe in your word this day and every day. God, we thank you for we know you do everything decent and in order. No gray areas, no doubt, but everything will come to pass for you are mighty in all your ways in Jesus name Amen.

Take a contract for example, you read it over and you know you better read the fine print because things may look good but as you continue to read you realize that the terms are not in your best interest. With the Bible nothing is hidden just pick up the word, read it, study it and meditate on it. God loved us enough to write it all out. Take the Bible with you, better yet know the word so tough that it is written on your heart. Not one gray area to be found. It’s  all laid out from Genesis to Revelations in black and white. It’s all very clear.

Be Blessed

Prophetess Huldah A Spokeswoman For God

Kingdoms brown color

Over a period of time Israel, the Northern kingdom had 19 evil kings and Judah the Southern kingdom had kings when compared to Israel were somewhat better. Josiah began to reigned when he was 8 yrs old and his reign lasted 31 years. And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in all the way of David his father, and turned not aside to the right hand or to the left. (2Kings 22:2)

The temple in Jerusalem was destroyed and in the course of getting the temple back in order, Hilkiah the high priest found the book of the law which he turned over to the scribe Shaphan who read it to the king. When the king heard the words, he rent his clothes. (2Kings 22:11)

The king then instructed him to go and inquire of the Lord. There wasn’t a discussion about who to see, they knew exactly who would tell them the truth of God’s word. Prophetess Huldah a spokeswoman for God.

Prophetess Huldah

(2Kings 22:14-20)14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.

15 And she said unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you to me,

16 Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the words of the book which the king of Judah hath read:

17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

18 But to the king of Judah which sent you to enquire of the Lord, thus shall ye say to him, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, As touching the words which thou hast heard;

19 Because thine heart was tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the Lord, when thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I also have heard thee, saith the Lord.

20 Behold therefore, I will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the king word again.

Then the king brought all the people together and publicly made a covenant before the Lord to walk after the Lord and keep his commandments. King Josiah took action to clean out the temple and rid the nation of its sinful ways. Read more in 2Kings 23:4-15, 24.

25 And like unto him was there no king before him, that turned to the Lord with all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might, according to all the law of Moses; neither after him arose there any like him. (2Kings 23:25)

Huldah was very clear with her message that the nation was headed for destruction. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear (Matthew 11:15). Also, take action for the word says, But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves James 1:22. King Josiah was a doer and he had someone like Huldah, a prophetess, a spokeswoman for God, who he could count on to tell him the truth of God’s word.

God’s Law Still in Question

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Isaiah 55:11 KJV

Moses is dead and Joshua is to lead the Israelites into the Promise Land and God lays down the ground rules for the law. Joshua 1:8 KJV This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

God is telling the people of Israel get my law in you, be obedient to my law and blessings will come.

Now before you go shaking your head and motioning your hand for me to stop right there because you say we are not under the law, let me explain. Then feel free to use my comment section because I would love to hear from you and I’m always willing to learn. Just remember everything we do or say we should do it in love.

Okay back to the law.

Are you thinking about Romans 6:14 KJV?  When Paul says, For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. We can’t leave out Roman 6:15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. What Paul is telling you is that you are not under the law, but under grace with respect to your salvation. That does not mean you can sin. And since sinners are saved by God’s grace through faith in Christ many believe they are free from sin or free to sin. That is not true. The law is used for instructions to help us live in obedience to God’s word. While Christ was on earth, he was obedient at all times, showing love through his actions.

Read Psalm 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. His spirit dwells in us, to help us and if we believe in Christ and who he is, the son of God, who died for us then we will and should have the desire to please him. Be obedient to the law.

Jesus states in Matthew 5:17 -18 KJV Think not that I come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

There are three types of laws:

  • Civil Law– dealt with Israel’s worship but the principles behind these laws are to guide our conduct. These laws were more for the nation of Israel.
  • Ceremonial Law– these laws covered cleanliness, priestly laws, feasts, and festivals and how to love and worship God. The last part of that to love and worship God we should still do today.
  • Moral Law – this includes the 10 Commandments and they are timeless, this is the nature and will of God.

And one of the greatest benefits of the Bible is to know that it holds our guidelines for living in obedience to what is required of us to please God. God’s word is truth. John 17:17 KJV Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 14:15 KJV If you love me, keep my commandments.

Matthew: 22:36-40 KJV Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Galatians 5:14 KJV For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

1John 5:3 KJV For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. Let’s go to the Life Application Study Bible for this one, Loving God means keeping his commandments and really, that isn’t difficult. It breaks it down further than that (you really should get this study Bible) Jesus never promised that obeying him would be easy. But the hard work and self-discipline of serving Christ is no burden to those who love him. And if our load starts to feel heavy, we can always trust Christ to help us bear it.

We don’t have to question if God’s law is relevant in today’s society. Like I said before, moral laws are timeless. Know that it is and abide by it.  And we do this by Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

God’s word is law. Live in obedience and love one another, so you may receive the blessings and promises of God.
