To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
(From: Ecclesiastes 3:1-12 King James Version, KJV)
1 O give thanks unto the Lord; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the Lord.
4 Seek the Lord, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
7 He is the Lord our God: his judgments are in all the earth.
8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
From: Psalm 105:1-8 King James Version (KJV)
Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not.
But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me.
Then they sought to take him: but no man laid hands on him, because his hour was not yet come.
And many of the people believed on him, and said, When Christ cometh, will he do more miracles than these which this man hath done?
The Pharisees heard that the people murmured such things concerning him; and the Pharisees and the chief priests sent officers to take him.
Then said Jesus unto them, Yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto him that sent me.
Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come.
Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles, and teach the Gentiles?
What manner of saying is this that he said, Ye shall seek me, and shall not find me: and where I am, thither ye cannot come?
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
From: John 7:28-39 King James Version (KJV)
This week Monday the United States celebrated another Martin Luther King Day in memory and honor of that great African American Leader.
I like what this person said about King Jr. “What I Love Most About Martin Luther King Is That He Taught African American People How To Fight Racism With Their Head & Faith In God” Zachary Wright on Twitter. I agree because the Bible tells us that “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12 KJV.
King Jr was not fighting against the flesh of evil men and women that were not of his race. He was fighting against a System that allowed “…principalities…powers…rulers of the darkness of this world…” to do great evil against others. And that System included some from all races, even his own, though not many. There are good and bad “white folks” as much as there are good and bad “black folks” and Asian, and so on. Those of us who know and understand the Bible know that we are talking about sin from all races, and not just one. It’s true that King Jr greatest struggles came from many “white folks” who were (and some still are today) against equality and justice for others – especially the African American or black/colored population in American. But the bottom line is, it was sin he was fighting against and sin caused the “physical’ death of his flesh. Because his brilliant ideas and biblical philosophy will live on (I believe) long after many of us have died and left this Earth in the future as he did.
So we honor not only a great man this week and his leadership struggles for a minority of people. But we also thank God for the Word of God and Jesus Salvation so we can know that it’s sin that we are still fighting against, not just a System of evil coming from some people. The battle is the Lord’s but he gave us his Spirit and Word so we know what to do (Ephesians 6:17 KJV).
