John 12:30-36 Who will you put your trust in Child of God? Man or God?

Who has never failed you?
All human beings are subjected to being failures at some point in their leadership.
David was a man after’s God’s own heart, but he failed – see
  • 2 Samuel 11:1-4 Bathsheeba HE commits adultery
  • 2 Samuel 11: 12-27 He commits murder – to cover up his sin.
  • 2 Sam. 24:10-17 Power goes to his head, and he takes a census in violation of God’s command. In human beings, ultimate power corrupts ultimately. Unless God steps in.
Friends do not become discouraged when human rulers fail you. There are basic things that they should do to keep their people safe, but without the direction and guidance of the Almighty God, they will lead people down the garden path right into the compost piles of life. Remain in prayer and keep looking upward toward your ultimate king for deliverance. Obey the guidance of the human authorities in your local areas, as long as it does not ask you to violate God’s law.  Reason through the lens of love rather than the lens of politics, and you will begin to love like Jesus.

There is and will always be only one ultimate ruler.

LIKE THE PHARISEES of old, some of us are still looking for a human being to redeem us, to deliver us, to make us safe and secure. Just read what the Pharisees said to Jesus.
Prayer: Lord, keep my mind open to the truth of your word and to focus on the one, the only one who can genuinely deliver me. The history of the Nation of Israel, the Books of the Old Testament shows us that human government is a fleeting thing and that NO human being can deliver us from this body of sin. Only Jesus.
Lord, thank you for your Holy Word that You have sealed for your people to read, feed, on, and live out.
Thank you for the freedom to worship you in spirit and in truth and the recognition that no rituals can ever forgive our sins, or deliver us from this body of sin. In the same way, NO HUMAN BEING can do that!
31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. 32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. 33 This he said, signifying what death he should die. 34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man? 35 Then Jesus said unto them, “Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness comes upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.”
