God has no contender – Part 2
The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.”
Brethren, let this truth be established in your subconscious to guide your thoughts and actions. The earth is not man’s neither is man equals to God. Man is but a tenant on earth, and a leaseholder he is prone to ejectment at any time, even without notice. The Lord alone is the Landowner. He is the Landlord of the landlords and, the King of kings. He has no rivalry with anyone in this estate called the earth. He alone founded and established it and, therefore, has no contender.
He gave life to all living things and also gave them power to exist. He is the power of the sun, the moon, stars, the day and night, the air, the ocean and without Him nothing can exist on this earth.
The man boasting of his personal achievement is nothing but ignorant. The problem in your life is nothing but braggart. Only God is the Almighty. He alone determines what will be or not in this life. Nothing can contend with Him. Jesus Christ is the Lord of the heaven and the earth, and has no contender. He is the Lord of your soul, spirit and body and anybody or thing that contends with your soul, body and spirit contends with Him. And He will ruthlessly deal with it.
I implore you beloved to fear no man or woman who had turned himself to god, and had arrogated to himself the power to determine what will be or not without reference to God Almighty. That person is not your Lord and will soon be ejected by the real Landlord of the earth, the God Almighty.
Psalm 103: 15- 16 states, “As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.” Man lives like the grass, feeds on the grass and partakes of its nature. The grass lives, grows, bears flowers, falls, dries up and then is removed from the field. I want to let you know that God is from everlasting to everlasting. If man lives a thousand years, he will still be cut down and die, so he cannot contend with God.
Brethren, if God has no contender why are you not giving Him the glory He deserves; you have stopped the work of God because of what a mortal man boasted to do or what you think he can do. Are you afraid of that man and for that stopped preaching the gospel. But believe you me, that man can do nothing. God is the one sustaining you, therefore fear no man, but only God. He alone determines the beginning and end of all things.
Lk 12: 4-5 says, “And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
