HUMBLE YOURSELF IN THE SIGHT OF THE LORD
AND HE WILL LIFT YOU UP ......JAMES 4:10.....SELAH.
IN 'JESUS' SIGHT!
(not men, women, Religions or other Gods)
There are not a lot of words in this verse but it certainly
covers a lot of ground and means a lot not only to us daily but to Almighty
God, Jesus the Christ.....Revelation 1:8......click.
Pride makes for the curse of many and most spiritual diseases. But humility
is a wonderfilled place to live, yes, humble is the shelter under His/Jesus
wings, doctrine, truth....click.
Texas/U.S.A. recently has it's fair share of humbling with hurricane
'Ike' passing through town, a day on the calendar that very few could
quickly forget, rather quickly remember. A recent tally reveals a $18
However there is always a guarantee of a 'lift up' by the hand of the creator
after being knocked down (whether that be by humans or mother
nature) if we humble ourselves. But as the scripture above states, we
must humble ourselves before him Jesus the Christ and he will not accept a
false humility paraded before mere men and women. Esau didn't really humble
himself before the lord God/Yahweh did he but he sure shed those tears and
everyone (bible student) in the world then and now has heard about it too......Hosea 6:1,2,
Hebrews 12:16, 17.......click.
We are told forever that if men and women don't humble themselves before God
he will have to humble them and this may prove to be a little painful for
the pride, the wallet and the flesh, by no means will it be a 'good look'.
As we all can clearly see as we 'view our televisions daily' it's not
a 'good look' across the globe, it may even be timely to cross off
the 'super' in the word Superannuation. And what about Lehman
Brothers and AIG/U.S.A? The multi-billion dollar Bush (baal) bail-out is
also another interesting, humbling episode. O, how the mighty are
falling, with trillions of dollars debt waiting for them at ground zero.......Proverbs 8:10-14.
Luke a disciple of Jesus the Christ said this...."Whoever falls on the
rock Jesus the Christ will be broken and saved from eternal hell-fire but if
the rock Jesus the Christ falls on that woman or man they will be ground to
It is a humbling thing to see and do things the 'Christ's Way' and if we
don't what hope have we got, I say naught....click.
Honesty, truth and humility are commanded, it is actually a command
for all to take the Christ as their leader, lord and first love. For the
ultimate in honesty, truth and humility is from him, his ways and even Him,
He/Jesus gives grace to the humble, he gives power to those who listen and
do what he says but for those men and women who say and think they know
better he has no alternative than to humble them. And Jesus is an expert at
humbling all creatures for he is omniscient, he is the omni-knowledgeable
one. Daniel 4:30-33...selah.
● Jesus as Preeminent is heaven/domestic
bliss in a sin cursed earth.....Amen!
