The Rights of God come first.

THE RIGHTS OF GOD

The Rights of God come first.

Man is God's creature. The world is God's creation. God has first Rights; His Rights must come
first. Eternal Truth never changes; Divine Law is always the same.

Mankind has gone very astray in placing his own rights above the Rights of God. A serious mistake
which confuses two concepts of “rights;” the right to live freely in accordance with God's revelation;
that which He has revealed to us of Himself. And the rights to live in freedom according to man's
own views.

God's Revelation has Rights.

In the garden of Eden, God gave a command to Adam:

"And the Lord God commanded the man thus,"
"From every tree of the garden you may eat;
but from the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil you must not eat; for the day you eat
of it, you must die."[Gen 2: 16-17]

Eve, and Adam, having partaken of the Forbidden fruit (from the tree of knowledge of good and
evil) their destination, and the whole of mankind with them, was descent into hell upon death. But
by an act of His great Mercy, God gave a decree, addressed to the serpent; the fallen angel;
Lucifer. The Words are found in Genesis III:XV. God said:

"I will put enmity between you and the
woman, between your seed and her
seed; He shall crush your head, and
you shall lie in wait for his heel "[Gen 3:15.]

The battle is being fought all around us in every moment of our lives. This is the one battle, it is the
great battle; it is the battle for our souls!

God, in His great Mercy and Love for mankind, and in the way of a good Father caring for His children, set
in place a plan of salvation; the way for mankind. This meant meeting mankind in our contemptible fallen
state, choosing a people to reveal Himself through; making things understandable to them, and for them
to write it down. And to nurture and cajole, to forgive, to chastise, and to sanctify; never casting them of,
always preparing them; always bringing them back along the course of His loving plan, and all culminating
“in the fullness of time” with the birth of our Saviour. And all of which was good of Him, who has no need
of us whatsoever.

Indeed, the greatest act in this battle; that greatest part; thee greatest help for mankind, being the Christ
coming amongst us, to teach us, to suffer and die for us, restoring to us the life of Grace and to rise again
in His glorious resurrection from the dead, and His glorious resurrection we must be joined with.

Our Lord God, who dwells in glory, humbled Himself to partake of our human nature; making Himself
"the Son of Man" the Son of "the woman" for our sakes. This is how serious it is! Only God Himself
could save mankind from our sins; only the perfect Sacrifice; His great Sacrifice, could suffice for
God's Justice.

The Hypostatic union is the theological term used to explain Our Lord God and Saviour taking on
human flesh; to become man, without losing a single feature of the God Head; true God and true
man.

This is all a great part of God's revelation; what He has made known to us, and with the Saviour
foretold in Scripture. The Saviour came amongst us and this is an historical fact. It was witnessed
by numerous; Our Lord God and Saviour gave ample proof of His divinity, and of His purpose in
coming amongst us; wondrous miracles; from curing the blind, the lepers, the deaf and mute
[Matt9:1-12,Lk 17;11-19,Mk 7:31-37] to feeding the five thousand [Matt 14:13-21] all witnessed. Thousands
followed Him daily; all that He did took place in time and is factual. His life and works on earth an
historical fact and reality. His raising Lazarus from the dead [Jn 11:38-48] witnessed by numerous. His
own resurrection from the dead there for all to see. [Matt 28, Mark 16, Luke 24,John 20&21] The Saviour
gave one Church; the Catholic Church, for all to be within.

And humans should never forget how serious all of this is! Our Lord God, Jesus Christ, who dwells in glory,
humbled Himself to partake of our humanity; making Himself "the Son of Man" for our sakes. He warned
us about hell on numerous occasions, for example:[Lk12.5] [Lk16:19] [Mt5:22] [Mt5:29-30] [Mt7:13]
[Mt13:41-42] [Mt25:41] [Mt25:46] [Mt13:50] [Mk9:42-48.] It is a place where, at all and every cost,
humans Must Not Go! For there, human souls (soul and body) are abased, and in horrifying ways.

All Our Lord God did for us fits with that foretold in scripture; and all of which fits with man's fallen
predicament that Our Lord came to free us from; preventing a man or woman's automatic descent
into hell upon death.

The first commandment is:

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with
thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment."[Mt 22:37]&[Deut. 6:4-5]
The prayer our Saviour taught us, addressed to God the Father is: “Thy will be done on earth as
it is in heaven......”[Mt 6:9-13]

All glory and honour is due to God, upon Whom all depends. And rightly do the words of the preface
of the Feast of the Epiphany say:

It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God; for when Thine only – begotten Son was manifested in the substance of our mortal flesh, with the new light of His own immortality He restored us.... Preface for the Feast Of The Epiphany.

And salvation must be the goal in our lives;

But the reality now is that we find the Church clamouring to even be given proper recognition in
society. And, throughout what was once Christendom, and beyond, the humble Christian
conscience is fast being made illegal.

And all of this now, in these years that directly precede Our
Lord's glorious Second Coming in Judgement.

And mankind is now vastly out - numbered amidst the apostate angels; the devastating last
chastisement that is upon mankind!
