Who knows if this will catch on, but here’s a bit of meditation for you:
Lets get this off to a fire blown start:
- PSALM 2:12. “Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him”
- Luke 12:5 “But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
“Without the danger the gospel has no meaning.” — forgotten commentor
Let’s try to get a little context on this:
Psalm 2 King James Version (KJV)
2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
You heard that right
Fear that bastard because if you piss him off, even just a little, he’ll throw you into hell and let you die forever and ever. Serve the Jesus with fear! (slave, be afraid of your master for he WILL kill you)
Just for fun. While you’re fearing the bastard child, remember that he has power over all things in this world and the ‘next’.
Colossians 1:15-17… He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together!
Notice that Jesus is in authority over ALL creation – that would include satan and every other spiritual power. Paul specifically makes that point when he refers to “visible and invisible.”
Guess that means that when Satan does his evil it is because god wants it that way. So the idea is to be a fearful slave who needs a master to protect themselves from an evil beast that the master has set loose on the world.
Now THAT makes perfect sense
