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)
I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever.
Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.
And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness.
They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.
The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.
The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
All thy works shall praise thee, O Lord; and thy saints shall bless thee.
They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;
To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom.
Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.
The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season.
Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.
The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.
He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.
The Lord preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
(Psalm 145 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).
