Ezekiel 2:1-2 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.
Wow, I cannot stand without the Holy Spirit giving me power to do so. I am but dust and ash and as such have no power within myself to do anything.
To a worldly person that sounds ridiculous but to kingdom dwellers, we get it. In the spirit it is the spirit that is the generator. All power comes from above. Worldly people don’t get it. Worldly people take credit for everything except for those things that “aren’t my fault” which usually is the result of what they have done.
Worldly people don’t want to accept sin is sin so they redefine sin. It is no longer immoral to be immoral because society gets to define moral and if anyone wants to stand up against sin, then they call it immoral to be moral.
Psalm 35:12, 38:20, 52:3, 109:5 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul. They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is. Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
What was true three thousand years ago is still true today. They say things must change but since this was true back then, nothing has changed.
I stand for He who calls me. I stand for what He tells me. I stand only because He gives me power to do so. Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye soldiers of the Cross.
p.s. Isaiah 5:20
