If ever there is ever a time in the history of people, especially here in the United States, to move away or flee evil, today is that time.

Overview

If ever there is ever a time in the history of people, especially here in the United States, to move away or flee evil, today is that time. We see around us such corruption, generally, but also in the lives and decisions of our leaders. Back in the pre-election period when our President was seeking office, I can remember his wife, Michelle Obama making the statement that for the first time she was able to not be embarrassed to be a citizen of this great country. At the time, my wife and I discussed that comment and we were not sure whether we had ever felt embarrassed to be an American citizen.

As the past two years have unfolded under this President and his regime, for the first time in my 86 years of living in this fine Country, both Lynne and I can say, we are definitely concerned as citizens of these United States. I feel sure many of you may feel the same, but others will think that is a very unusual thought. I suspect the Founding Fathers would sound an alarm.

If we were to look at any person in whom we may admire, we almost always will find that person surrounded by others of like mind. Decent, honorable, upright people who none of us would be afraid to bring home with us, or to introduce them to our spouse, our parents, our children or other friends or relatives. People almost always surround themselves with others of like mind. Today, as we look at our present President, it is almost impossible for the average citizen to imagine bringing into their own home, many of this President’s closest confidents, and yet these people are inhabiting the People’s House or are counsel for the President of United States of America.

I don’t want this to be a book about politics, but one in which we all can review and understand some of the teachings of our Lord, taken from his word in the Holy Bible. There is so much misinformation being pushed into the faces of God’s people that it becomes even more important to study and meditate on the word of God.

In David’s life before God, he, like us, had made many mistakes, but his heart was desirous of pleasing God. David has realized that he won’t be building God’s temple but that his son, Solomon, has been chosen for that task. In 1Chron. 29:1 he says, “Solomon my son, whom God has chosen, is yet very young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the Lord God.”

In verse 19 he states, “Give unto Solomon, my son, a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to prove all these things, and to build the palace, for which I have made provision.” As we look at this chapter in Chronicles, we see the heart of David for the work that God had given him to do. Yes, you are correct, that God didn’t give him the job of actually building the Temple, but lets’ look at David’s heart for the for the work to be done and his contribution.
