Our Bible Study lessons have been on the 10 Commandments and our teacher was addressing number eight about stealing.
Godly Universities through the years have changed from their original intent. They began with a hunger and thirst after Righteousness, Salvation from sin and the power of sin. They were empowered by Christ with Biblical wisdom, training men to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and how to live moral and Godly lives.
Time has stolen their focus, and many of these higher schools of learning would not be recognized today by their founders.
Commandment number eight is: Thou Shalt Not Steal.
We are reminded of Jacob who stole his brothers blessing and also his birthright.
In the beginning of time the enemy lied with sweet words and convinced Eve to partake of the forbidden fruit. She gave to her husband and they both did eat. Their innocence was stolen from them in the Garden of Eden. They became ashamed and guilt filled their spirits, and their eyes were opened to know the difference between good and evil. Satan became the authority over their lives as they yielded to his words.
Jesus did not come to do away with the law, but he came to fulfill it.
Lifestyle decisions can steal your health, wealth and soul.
There is a difference between conviction and condemnation.
Conviction is from the Holy Spirit as He gently draws you to Jesus.
Condemnation is the enemy telling you that you are bad, no good, and have no hope.
The enemy wants to steal your PEACE with the thoughts he plants into your mind.
Recognize where those thoughts are coming from and resist the devil lest he steal your confidence and assurance that Jesus brings.
Don’t let Satan steal your JOY !!
Mark 8:36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
Don’t let Satan steal your SOUL !!
John 10: 27-29 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand.
The Scriptures tell us that we are chosen and qualified by the Blood of Jesus and have been placed into the family of God and into His blood line. All God has now belongs to you.
No one can steal your inheritance.
