Good morning sorry for the de lay in my post, was sick & a hard time breathing went to urgent care and antibiotics am feeling much better. Do you know who invented the first battery? Was it Thomas Edison; Alessandro Volta; Leonardo Da Vinci; or Nikola Tesla? Well it was Allesandro Volta by stacking piles of copper and zinc separated but cardboard or cloth. These group of scientists did not fully understand how this worked, they hadn't yet come to understand the positive & negative ions yet. The term voltage was given the measurement of electrical charge produced by these batteries.
Prov. 28:8 "Whoever keeps the law is a discerning son, But a companion of gluttons shames his father."
When this verse speaks of "keeping the law", it isn't talking about keeping the legal law, but rather the religious law. For the Hebrew nation was many times ruled by godless nations. Therefore, they were to be guided by their religious laws. For they were consistent throughout their days. Imagine when Israel was under the Egyptian rule, their laws were totally godless. Drunkenness was the norm of their day, while in Egypt, The only consistency they had was the religious order give to them in Leviticus, as long as they followed these guides they were a strong nation.
Of course God's laws are to be obeyed regardless of the laws of the land. The struggle of the nation of Israel was to be consistent before God, regardless of the laws of the land they were living in. As believers were are foreigners in this earthly kingdom, therefore we must remain loyal to Gods laws, rather than just the laws of our earthly nation.
So my fellow believer our focus must be directed towards God & His words rather than the law of our age. We are heavenly creatures in Christ Jesus, Eph. 2:10 "For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus..."
So Go With God and His guidelines will create a faithful message to the godless world that is all around us. For they must hear the saving message in order to enter into eternal life. This moves us from looking at our lives as just lives unlike any other physical being. Into lives dedicated to declaring the Gospel message to all who will hear its eternal truth.
