It’s A Rosie-The-Riveter World, Part 2: “Without Me, Ye Can Do Nothing!”

To read Part 1, go here…November 5th (A Rosie the Riveter World)

Is it a fair and accurate statement to make the following assessment, “We live in a very proud world filled with self-reliant people?”

.

Well, don’t we?

.

It’s an “I Can Do It!” world.

.

Well isn’t it?

EVE, THE ORIGINAL ROSIE

.Eve Tizian wikipedia-pub-dom

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpgYes, it’s a Rosie the Riveter world. And it’s been that way for a very long time! Even in the Garden, when the Tempter tempted the woman, it was over the issue of her wanting to be like God. She didn’t want to trust in God. She wanted to do things under her own strength and intellect.

.

And in a very real sense, Eve was the very first Rosie the Riveter!

OUR HEAVENLY FATHER ALLOWED US TO “DO IT OURSELVES”

And all God originally wanted was for mankind to enjoy peace and rest and happiness.

.

But when mankind left God’s Rest and wanted to have a, “We Can Do It!” world, God in His infinite wisdom decided to allow us to become that kind of a world!

.

And so, we became a “We Can Do It!” world.

WITHOUT GOD, WE CAN DO NOTHING!

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpg

The fact is, Jesus teaches us the following truth…“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing.” John 15:5

.

.

Here is revealed a great truth, not only for the Church, but for the entire world! God is the great Provider of all things. We little humans just do not understand that apart from God, we would be as helpless as little babies! Without God’s intervention, the human race would come to a complete stand-still!

GOD DOES HIS OWN WILL

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpg

Listen to this next statement…“And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and He doeth according to His will in the army of Heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou?” Daniel 4:35

.

From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible makes clear that our great God is intimately involved in the affairs of life, both small and great.

SATAN ALSO WORKING HARD

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpg

Oh yes, the Enemy of Souls, the Devil, is also busily working in the hearts of the unsaved!

.

.

 

Listen…“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” Ephesians 2:2

.

And Satan is a very hard workin’ Devil! And he and his fellow angels work around the clock to accomplish his own deceptive purposes! And as this above verse reveals, the spirit of Antichrist works in the heart of all those who are considered, “the children of disobedience”.

.

But ultimately, God is in control. Satan can only do the things that God allows him to do…

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER

FOR GOD’S OWN PURPOSEShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17.jpg

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpg

Listen…“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

.

So here we see that all that happens in this world has been orchestrated by God to accomplish His own divine will.

So, just what can a human do apart from God? And what can a human do apart from the principalities and powers which rule this world?

PLANET EARTH & FOURTH COMMANDMENT…

“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shall you labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it you shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Exodus 20:8-11

FOURTH SOLAR SYSTEM MEMBER

.

.

 

Counting the Sun as the 1st heavenly sphere, the Earth is the 4th heavenly sphere. If we extend our theory (and it’s just a theory) that God created our solar system to correspond to the commandments, then planet Earth would correspond to the 4th Commandment.

.

And so, on the very planet that corresponds to the commandment that exalts the idea of “rest” and “peace”, there exists very little peace. And very little rest. Ironic, isn’t it?
