A Finished Foundation

January 1

“In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD.”  John 1:1

 

“At the critical moment, they will fail under the stress of HIS weighty judgment.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is nothing either before or after the WORD, for the WORD is GOD!  “I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the beginning and the ending, saith the LORD, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the ALMIGHTY.”  The great push in our world to diversify your deity portfolio is akin to building a trestle across the Atlantic with ill cooperative design enjoined of every nation.  “… ye are even MY witnesses. Is there a GOD beside ME?  Yea, there is no GOD; I know not any.”  EL SHADDAI, however, WHO alone spoke the Atlantic (and all else) into existence, defies the cooperation of all competing bids.

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is JESUS CHRIST.”  In any endeavor, the foundation is critical if success is to be achieved.  Thus the GOD of all beginning is by virtue of that, foundational to all that is … and to the wise builder, all that he does.  “And, THOU, LORD, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of THINE hands:” In spite of this knowledge, men today are busily bridging their eternity across genealogical fault lines with absolute zero regard for the engineering study of the Scripture.  “And every one that heareth these sayings of MINE, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:” In the end, the high tide of HIS presence will come in to take out to judgment all the vain structures dreamt of men, which are not founded upon the WORD.  “Nevertheless the foundation of GOD standeth sure, having this seal, The LORD knoweth them that are HIS. And, Let every one that nameth the name of CHRIST depart from iniquity.”  Dear friend, make sure of your foundation; and be not deceived by clever imitation, and the cheap building materials manufactured any place other than Heaven.  At the critical moment, they will fail under the stress of HIS weighty judgment.  

"According to the grace of GOD which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the FOUNDATION, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.” 


For Love of Country
John William Jones (1836-1909)
(Chaplain to the Army of Northern Virginia)
"It is believed that no army in the world's history ever had in it so much of genuine, devout piety, so much of active work for CHRIST, as the army of Northern Virginia, under the command of our noble Christian leader."
