1-5-2013-IF MAN STEAL TO EAT-HES NOT DESPISED


PROVERBS 6: 30-31 = 

(30) MEN DO NOT DESPISE A THIEF, IF HE STAEL TO SATISFY HIS SOUL WHEN HE IS HUNGRY. 

(31) BUT, IF HE BE FOUND, HE SHALL RESTORE SEVEN FOLD; HE SHALL GIVE ALL THE SUBSTANCE OF HIS HOUSE.


"REMARKS"

WHAT ELSE IS THERE IN LIFE, THAT KEEPS A MAN ALIVE, BESIDES FOOD AND CLOTHES? HIS FAITH?

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS THOUGH, CAN LEAVE A COLD AND HUNGRY MAN, WITHOUT CLOTHES AND FOOD.


JAMES 2: 14 17 = 

(14) WHAT DOES IT PROFIT MY BRETHREN, THOUGH A MAN SAYS HE HAS FAITH AND HAVE NOT WORKS? CAN FAITH SAVE HIM?

(15) IF A BROTHER OR SISTER BE NAKED AND DESTITUTE OF DAILY FOOD.

(16) AND ONE OF YOU SAY TO THEM, DEPART IN PEACE AND BE YOU WARMED AND FILLED; NOT WITHSTANDING YOU GIVE THEM NOT THOSE THINGS WHICH BE NEEDFUL TO THE BODY; WHAT DOES IT PROFIT?

(17) EVEN SO, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD, BEING ALONE.


HE MUST STEAL TO SURVIVE AND HE MUST DO WHAT HE MUST, THOUGH HE IS CONSIDERED AS ONE WHO SHOULD NOT BE SCORNED, FOR DOING IT.

THIS IS A SIN WE CAN OVERLOOK AS MEN BUT, TO GOD, YAH'WEH, A BROKEN COMMANDMENT MUST BE PAID FOR, THROUGH PUNISHMENT.

IN THIS CASE, IT IS PAYING 7 TIMES WHAT HE HAD STOLEN AND WHATEVER ELSE IN HIS HOUSE TO SETTLE THIS SIN DEBT.

YET, AS IN A LOT OF LIFE ISSUES, WE STRIVE TO STEAL THINGS, WHETHER SEEN OR UNSEEN.

FOR INSTANCE, HOW MANY MEN HAVE STOLEN THE INNOCENCE OF A VIRGIN, NOT READY FOR WOMANHOOD, AND, OR, MARRIAGE.

OR, SOMEONE WHO STOLEN THE HEART OF SOMEONE DURING THEIR STRUGGLES IN LIFE AND WARRANTED THEIR FRIENDSHIP.

WHEN WE STEAL, WE INVADE THE HEARTS OF MEN, MORE THAN THEIR POSSESSIONS AND THEIR TRUST IN MAN DIMINISHES.

STOLEN THOUGHTS OF A BETTER DAY IN THE PAST OR, IN THE FUTURE, OF THE DAY OF OUR RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD, THESE STOLEN THOUGHTS ARE WORTH BEING STOLEN AND HOLD NO SIN.

SO, DREAM ON BROTHER AND SISTER, IN THE HOPE OF OUR GOD AND SAVIOR, JESUS, YAH'SHAU.
