“Just Because God Said So”


Zechariah 4:6


When my brothers and I were coming up and we would want to do something or go somewhere we would, unlike kids today, ask our parents could we do this or could we go there. My father, like most fathers, would say what did your mother say. My mother, if she didn’t want us to do that would say no. Like most children when they have received the no answer would always ask the question why not. My mother’s answer would always be “Just because I said so.” Today I would like to talk to you, taken from that story and this passage of scripture on the subject “Just because God said so”.

We find that we are living in what the Bible calls perilous times. Every diabolical thing that can happen is being done in society today. We have every diabolical and corruptible piece of filth imaginable coming across our televisions, cartoons aren’t even clean anymore. Marriages are not lasting 6 months. We have 10 and 12 year old little girls dying on the abortion doctors table, because their young and immature bodies have suddenly experienced a level of shock that arrested their innocence, their purity, and their childhood and forced them to live far beyond their years, which ended up resulting in their untimely death. Husbands are killing wives, wives are killing husbands. Mother’s are against daughters and fathers are against sons, wrong is being called right and right is being called wrong. We have states passing laws saying that it is o.k. for a man to marry a man or a woman to marry a woman. Homosexuality is being embraced and referred to as a normal way of life.

It’s sad to say but we now even have churches, not the CHURCH, but churches embracing this abomination and allowing this homosexual life-style to occupy the cathedra, which is the seat of authority, trying to hide behind the philosophy that you never know who you are going to fall in love with, preaching a message that all you need is love. They are saying it’s alright to live any type of corrupted life-style you desire just as long as you come and play for the service, just as long as you sing in the choir, just as long as you pay me your tithes. They are sugar coating the Word of God trying to say that it really doesn’t matter, just as long as your intentions are right, but your intentions don’t mean a thing if your soul is on its way to Hell. I think about the song the Marvin Gaye sang when he asked the question “What’s going on”. There are far to many of us dying spiritually, what’s going on.

The Bible says in Luke 11:34-37 “The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”
