Cease Ye From Man! Part 15: “Trust Ye Not In A Friend!”

“Trust ye not in a friend,

put ye not confidence in a guide:

keep the doors of thy mouth

from her that lieth in thy bosom.

For the son dishonoureth the father,

the daughter riseth up against her mother,

the daughter in law against her mother in law;

a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. 

Therefore I will look unto the LORD;

I will wait for the God of my salvation:

my God will hear me.”

Micah 7:5   

.

It has been reported that Julius Caesar’s last words were “Et tu Brute?” as he saw his young protege, Markus Brutus, numbered among his assassins. In other words, he was startled that his supposed beloved and trusted friend would actually betray him.

.

And most people are familiar with the historical account of Jesus being betrayed with a kiss by His Disciple, Judas Iscariot.

.

.

.

.

.

There is a old adage in the political world which says, “If You want a friend in Washington (D.C.), get a dog!”

.

Yes, Washington DC probably sees more high-profile backstabbings than any other American city.

.

But Washington is not the only place in which one must be on guard against being betrayed by supposed friends.

.

Listen to Scripture… “Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me. ” Micah 7:5-7

.

So here is a warning from God to Christians, that we cannot place our trust in a friend.

.

But there is one friend we can depend upon.

.

Listen…”…Therefore I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.” Micah 7:5-7

.

Now, is God telling us to not have any friends? Is He warning us to not take a spouse?

.

Not necessarily. He is only warning us to not be surprised if we are betrayed by those we love.

.

There is only one Being in the universe who will never betray us. That, of course, is God.

.

God can bring us a friend. And God can remove a friend.

.

.

.

.

Jer_9:4  Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE MILKY WAY RUNS THROUGH

.

THIS HOLY-GHOST-RIDER

winter Constellations in the east

.

 

Now one thing that is noticeable and makes this constellation even more dramatic, is the fact that the Milky Way runs right through it. And the question that must be asked is, “What biblical implications does this constellation/Milky Way connection have?” Well, very simply put, if stars represent Believers, then this rider works in the world through His True-Worshippers, to a great extent.

.

WHY IS THIS CONSTELLATION SO INCOMPLETE IN APPEARANCE

.

So why is this constellation merely an outline? Well it does show his back, rear end and leg…and arm. But unlike, say, Orion, this constellation is very vague, even mysterious in appearance. Almost vacant in appearance. Yes this horseman represents Christ. But even more than this, it represents the Holy Spirit of Christ. And as we all know, the Holy Spirit is very, very, un-intrusive, almost impossible to detect His presence.
