No Escape From Truth
The Lord demands obedience and that is Truth! Jonah tried to escape his assignment, but to no end. God’s commands must be adhered to or expect punishment. Just do it, was originally an idea from the Holy Writ, the psalmist asked the question “who will abide in Your Tabernacle and Your Holy Hill?” Who will be in Your Presence? The answer is only those who do His Will His Way, for more details read the Bible! There is no other way, His Way or the super highway to Hell.
Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.
Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord.
Jehovah Ori (The LORD My Light, Psalm 27:1); we thank You Lord for correction, reproof and Love, Agape Love. Where as we have praise upon our lips we cry Holy is Your Name for a You are the Lord of Righteousness and there are none righteous without You. We decree and declare blessings upon those who attend to Your Will, Your Way and Your Mercy that will go where You send them and say with confidence what You tell them to say, so that repentance will flow into the hearts of the hardened and joy fill the streets of the Kingdom. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
