In Psalms 115:16 David reminds us that “The highest heavens belong to the Lord but the earth, He has given to man.”
This verse is confirmed and supported in Gen_1:26 when God said,” Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
If God gave earth to man, isn’t it strange that man blames God when evil occurs. God said obey me (act like me) then you will have days like heaven on earth (Deuteronomy 11:21). The ten commandments remind us to love God, love our neighbors and love ourselves. We are told not to kill, not to steal, and not to lie because these are things that harm others. Yet, some would have us believe obeying God is a bad thing!
They want us to think praying to God is a bad thing. Is praying for protection from our enemies bad? As Atheists seek to suppress the voice of God in the country, we should be very concerned. As God’s Holy Spirit is the only power capable of restraining Satan aka the god of death and destruction. If we continue to allow Satan to gain territory we will have many dark days as a nation.
Someone noted the number of Satanic statues, monuments and temples being erected in certain cities, as God is being censured. It appears that worship of God is being replaced by worship of Satan. To worship means to serve. You are the servant of the one you obey. Atheism is a religion, they actually have church services! If we obey Satan we worship him. If we obey God we worship God. If you worship the god of death there will be death.Satan knows if we turn away from God he can have his will on earth instead of God's will. That's why we pray let thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10).There is no evil going on in heaven!
Can you believe there was a time when there were no school shootings? Can you believe there was a time when there were no mass shootings? Yes, there was such a time.
Is it possible to return to such a time? If we begin to obey the God of life and light, we can live in peace and safety again. If we restore righteous in the land, peace and safety will return. Unnecessary death and destruction will not reign.
Let’s worship the God who created us and gave us dominion over the earth. Let us exercise dominion as He desires, loving and taking care of each other. Let us worship Him because He deserves our worship, for his love and mercy endures forever! Let's all pray that God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven!
Here is the Lord's Prayer, Let's Pray:
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
