Sons And Daughters Of God
Dr. Gale A. Ragan-Reid
“And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” (II Corinthians 6:18, King James Version)
Greetings in the Holy Name of GOD,
My brothers and sisters, clearly understand me, you are not only the proverbial daughters who remain under the care of human fathers for their entire life and the proverbial sons who become wise when they listen to their father tell them the right way. Phonetically speaking, you are not dawgs (dogs), in the Truth because you belong to the living GOD Yahweh. Why do you want to take on the behavior patterns of dogs, when the Word of GOD calls you sheep and called Jesus Yahshuah, the lamb of GOD? What makes you so rebellious that you prefer to be like a dog, such as they say, Dog gone it? Is it right for the natural man, made in the image of GOD ALMIGHTY to live his life, doggie style?
Most importantly, you are a friend! You are brothers and sisters, of Jesus in the supremely supernatural family of God! Why do you fearfully live life as an animal that GOD gave you to name and take care of instead of living life in Truth as sons and daughters of GOD? Nowadays, the animals behave more human in grace than humans behave in grace. God did not intend for you to compete with wild or feral dogs, running the streets, stealing, killing, and destroying, roaring like a lion.
Moreover, you see you do not know what you are or to whom you belong. The Holy Word of God called you lost sheep, not lost dogs!
“That’s my dog!”, frequently spoken out of the mouths of the children of GOD, place you every time at the cross, demanding change! We plead the blood of the lamb for the saving of your souls! In the last 16 years, I witnessed more killings of dogs than ever before in my life because man competing against dog wants to act like a dog! This is not normal to slaughter dogs!
Henceforth, you find humanity outclassed by the dog because the dog knows that humankind is Master but humankind does not know that GOD, is the Heavenly Father. Our Great GOD hears the cries of His children led to the slaughter! Our Great GOD Almighty hears the cries of the slaughtered animals! How harshly man judged animals? In turn, how man cried out for mercy, for righteousness sake?
In closing, I do not want you to call me your “dog”, because it sounds too much like slavery, yes, the same slavery, you prayed for righteous judgement from, demanding freedom for mankind. Furthermore, I do not want to live my life, doggie styled bridging my life with animal behavior instead of bridging the gap, for redemption, salvation and the gift of eternal life. Understandably, mistreatment of animals as your threshold to show you exert power and authority over any animal just for the sake of vain-glory, is misdirected wantonness
[ The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and WANTONNESS, not in strife and envying. ( Romans 13:12-13 )]! Just remember, we all are under the power and authority of Jesus, Yahshuah, for righteousness sake. That change happened as Yahshuah walked up Calvary, too weak, from judgement beatings to even carry the cross for his own hanging, yet the crown of thorns wet with his blood I am sure spilled along the way to show the way of redemption; who paid the price.
Whatever happened to the saying, A dog is man’s best friend. I guess that saying lost truth when man took over the dog’s role, so we say, Every dog has its day. That saying alone, gives you some insight into a dog’s behavior and man’s behavior when he acts like a dog. Who let the dogs out?
Of course, you cannot teach an old dog new tricks. Are we now talking about old men, putting them in their place when they try to compete with young men? Three dog night, comes to mind. Let us not forget the roll call of sayings; hot doggin’, slept like a dog, double dog dare, run with the big dogs, pretty as a speckled pup (I remember some man cut off the head of my beautifully endowed speckled pup because the man, obviously an idiot competed with the beauty and grace of the dog).
What about sayings such as: working like a dog, you cannot keep a good dog down and his bark is worse than his bite? God knows your hearts and minds. You cannot punish dogs for slavery! Let us pray for the healing of oppressed hearts and minds, still chained and bound, those of mankind who practice hate on animals, for as long as they can get away with it, forgetting GOD sits up high, in Heaven and looks down low, upon the Earth.
This is Truth! In Jesus Yahshuah’s Name, we pray. Christ be with you! Amen.
