It has been said by the poet Charles Bowen and others since: “The rain raineth on the just and unjust fella; but chiefly upon the just because the unjust steals the just’s umbrella.
Humorous, yes, however the blessings of heaven descend so that perhaps the unjust (according to the God of Father Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob’s reckoning) may pause and consider the opportunity provided for repentance in order that they also may join the ranks of the redeemed of the Lord. Blessed even is the hypocrite who repents of, turns away from, his sins.
In these days and times multitudes of people are caught in the delusion that a mental self-denial of sin, as defined by the Holy Bible, will have the effect of cleansing the soul. They tend to appropriate unto themselves material wealth and deem themselves wiser than the children of the kingdom of God and arrogate unto themselves power to rule and exercise dominion over others. Some even seek to overthrow the institutions of heaven proclaiming knowledge of better paths. Still, there remains but one good path, the way of God, follow Him for all other paths lead to sorrow.
“I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father but by Me.” – Jesus the Messiah.
