Christians..Out Numbered?? Me and GOD equals the Majority
Genesis Chapter 34 verse 30. Speaks of Jacob's fear of all the appearance of evil that was surrounding him as he journeyed house, out of GOD'S Will for his life and like many of us get consumed with all manner of evil that is happening all around us on every corner. Death and destruction seemingly prevails. It doesn't take very long to see that fact coming alive on TV, Radio, Internet, Newspapers, etc. Jacob stated in verse 30 toward the latter part of the verse "I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me;and I shall be destroyed, I and my house." Don't we feel the same exact way from time to time along our journeys. We get caught up in the things of this world and we come to our on feeble senses and become afraid once the storm clouds get dark. As we go into Genesis Chapter 35 GOD again spoke to Jacob and told him to arise and go up to Bethel, make an altar unto GOD. Jacob did as GOD had instructed him to do. Jacob told his houshold and all that was with him, he told them to put away your strange gods, be clean and change your garments. Verse 5 shows GOD'S Power, it speaks of as they journeyed to where GOD had them to go and it says that the terror of GOD was upon the cities that were round about them and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob. Its really a blessing how GOD turns our circumstances completely around for HIS Glory and what was frightful as we stumble around trying to make it on our own,,But GOD seeks us out and has given the child of GOD a Promise..I will be with you always..Just stay close to ME (HOLY GOD), don't look around at the devils follies, just stay busy proclaiming GOD'S goodness. Finally we see in verses 9-15 of Genesis Chapter 35, we see GOD speaking to Jacob again and reminding him of all the blessing that would happen, of how fruitful his seed will be, having nations and company of nations shall be with thee and kings come out of his loins. Jacob built stone pillars unto GOD and it says he poured a drink offering there on the pillar and also poured oil there on. I study to believe that the pouring out is typical of the type of CHRIST that was to be poured out for our sins. I beleive Jacob poured himself out so he can be used of GOD. If we will pour ourself (self) out before a HOLY GOD, and let HIM fill us from the wells that never run dry, then we can be used by HIM...No CHristian we are not outnumbered..When GOD is with you...You (Me)we are the majority!!! Praise GOD, HE will see us safely through the evil storms of this life..Trust HIM today..Look to HIM...HE promises that HE will keep us safe until the storm passes by!! By the way folks GOD is still in control!!!!
