OH! LORD, MY GOD

“O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me: Lest he tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver. O Lord my God, If I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands; If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:)
Let the enemy persecute my soul, and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.
Arise, O Lord, in thine anger, lift up thyself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that thou hast commanded. So shall the congregation of the people compass thee about: for their sakes therefore return thou on high.
The Lord shall judge the people: judge me, O Lord, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me. Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.
My defence is of God, which saveth the upright in heart. God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.
Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made. His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate. I will praise the Lord according to his righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.” (Psalm 7: 1-17, King James Version [KJV])
Greetings In The Holy Name Of Jesus Yahshuah,
My sisters and brothers, we consider the thought of having power and authority over you, as a thought of subjugation-modern day slavery, denying Christ Jesus. For whom Jesus freed, is free indeed [“John 8: 36, KJV, If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”].Bearing all grief in mind, we find the evil ones gravitate to jobs where such power and authority is freely given to them. The priesthood, considerably needy for those who want to tenter in the vocation of faith for the numbers of folks who believe in Christ Jesus are big—-the harvest is big, pray to God more laborers are needed [“Luke 10: 2, KJV, Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.”].
Well, you think the vow of poverty and chastity binds such dark thoughts of infidelity in good times but it does not—- what about times of a pandemic and worldwide plagues? Yet, the power and authority used to subdue mankind by forcing you to surrender all, threatens to take your soul, oftentimes is coupled with lust and greed, lying to gain your faith in what is evil, not in what is good. The law and order workers, peace officers, also considerably needy for power and authority over you, even the power to take your life, deny the Office of Christ, as their leadership, accepting the behavior patterns of looking to and fro for those that are out there, to steal, kill and destroy [“John 10: 10, KJV, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”]. The teachers, considerably needy for power and authority find themselves in wanton lust lorded over the vulnerable children and adults to have their way taking confidence and countenance, stealing the joy God sends each morning, for relief and satisfaction [“Psalms 30: 5, KJV,
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”].
Doctors, who play God in decision making snatching bodies when death is the enemy and the challenge is to live in a world that God so loved [“John 3: 16 KJV,
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”], despite the sufficient wickedness of the day that tempts man to enter into evil [“Matthew 6: 34, KJV, Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”].
