HSMS-211S2A2.27



There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  Pro 14:12.

The knowledge of good and evil, and why most choose the evil, a sin I too have been guilty of in times past.  I believe the soul that truly loves and belongs to God understands this conflict better than those who have decided that they are going to live for themselves and the pleasures of the flesh.

How do you reach them, the ones who have allowed themselves to be taken captive by the things they think they know, and have convinced themselves that they are right?  Why does God choose to become intimate with some and provide and overwhelming desire for them to preserve their integrity against the evil that is being committed against them, while they suffer in this world?

Uriah was one such man, for when he was tried, he held to his integrity and duty.  He chose not to please the flesh; and those walking in the flesh (for pleasures of the flesh), chose to rob and kill him for his virtue.

The manuscript in the first video above is from 2 Samuel 11:2-27, with some other verses from the Bible as well.  I also made an additional video that has no manuscript which is included below.

My motivation for the videos comes from the sympathy I feel for Uriah.  Not only was he married to a woman that had no morals (proven by her temptation of David and her adultery), but they also killed him so she and her paramour could enjoy a temporal life in the flesh.

In our society, the divorced remarried adulterers (and those who are divorced and living in common law marriages while having a living spouse) have placed that relationship above a relationship with God.  Everyone I have encountered has an excuse that they cling to that soothes their conscience in sin when it comes to divorce remarried adultery, and they think they are right.  In David’s case, he eventually repented, and after the episode with Absalom (when David put away his concubines) and the death of Michal (David’s legitimate wife), Bathsheba became his lawful wife.

Although what happened to Uriah was a tragedy, at least he did not have to suffer through the humiliation of being joined to a wicked woman any longer because his death followed on the heels of her adultery.  So, I ask again, why does God allow some to see the truth of the sin of adultery, but allows those who think they are right to continue headlong into the ways of death?

The answer must be simple; it is because they think God is like them, and what feels so right to their flesh (and the selfish thoughts of their minds), must be approved of by God.  And because they lack that overwhelming spiritual intimacy with God to know the difference, they live in a delusory religious state that measures everything in accordance with their imaginations and errant thoughts:

These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.  Psa 50:21.

And those who are walking in the Spirit and have that intimacy?  Well they are going to continue to suffer at the hands of those who love themselves and this world more than God.  However, be of good cheer and find joy in the fact that their temporal pleasures of this life are fleeting, and your walk of integrity is not in vain as eternity is everlasting.  Your testimony and walk will be part of the order God will set before them when they are reproved.

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.  Luk 16:24-25.

There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  Pro 16:25.
