No throwing Dice Please!: Always Observe the Golden Rule 

No throwing Dice Please!: Always Observe the Golden Rule 

Friends, in our world today, we see and experience injustice on all fronts and we can be tempted to remain complacent, to give up and give in to the pressure and then short down God’s standard for life and living. God expects us to stand on the standard He set and sits on. That standard can be found all over scriptures but there is no place this standard is as clear as in

Psalm 89:14 – The seat of your kingdom is resting on righteousness and right judging: mercy and good faith come before your face.

That is the only time God calls us gods with small (g) is in relation to ensuring that righteousness and justice is served in our sphere and in our realm. Whatever that sphere or realm is in our individual context. Jesus confirmed that as second witness to the authenticity of those words.

God expects us not to join the scheme of throwing dice: No throwing dice please whether in our resolve, in external pressure or manipulation.

Read Psalm 82 which Jesus referenced when they told Him, Him, being man make Himself out to be God. (John 10:34).You will see the level of injustice and unrighteousness God expects His children to superintend over. These are areas where God expects us to be salt and light.

Story of king George

King George and the two servants

Once upon a time, in a small village named Harmonyville, there lived a wise and fair king named King Edmund. He was known for his righteousness and commitment to justice. The villagers loved and respected him because they knew he would always make fair decisions.

One day, a poor farmer named Jack came to the king with a troubling situation. He explained that his precious land, which he had been cultivating for years, was being forcefully taken away by his wealthy neighbor, Simon. Simon wanted to expand his own farm, and he believed he had the right to take Jack’s land.

King Edmund carefully listened to both sides of the story and conducted a thorough investigation. He realized that Simon’s claim was based on weak evidence and unjustified greed. Being a just and righteous ruler, King Edmund decided to pass a verdict in favor of Jack.

Not only did King Edmund order Simon to return Jack’s land, but he also punished Simon for his wrongful actions. Simon was made to serve community service, helping Jack maintain and cultivate his farmland for a certain period of time. This would ensure that Simon learned the value of fairness, hard work, and the consequences of his unjust acts.

The news of King Edmund’s fair judgment spread throughout the village, creating a wave of admiration and respect for their righteous king. The villagers saw this as a testament to the justice system that King Edmund had established in the kingdom. They were grateful for the peace and harmony it brought to their lives.

From that day forward, King Edmund’s commitment to righteousness and justice only grew stronger. He continued to make fair decisions, listening to all sides before passing judgments. The village of Harmonyville thrived under his wise rule, with everyone feeling safe and protected, knowing that justice would always prevail.

The story of King Edmund and the land dispute became a legendary tale that was passed down from generation to generation. It served as a reminder that a righteous ruler, who upholds justice above all else, can create a society where fairness and harmony reign supreme

True Story – Pharaoh, Moses and Africans

Four hundred and thirty years (430) the children of Israel were oppressed in Africa (Egypt) by Africans. After the passing of Joseph in Africa – Egypt

Note: The current occupants of modern day Egypt were not the occupants that oppressed Israel.  If you read Ezekiel 29 through four chapters, God was reeling out curses because of what was done to Israel in Africa and by Africans.  You will understand and identify the occupants when you relate that prophecy to what happened to Africans through the history books; Africans were taken as slaves to foreign lands – Naked.

The prophecy mentioned that we will lose our intelligence and be driven to the furthermost territories of Africa and we will be like Animal just as He did to Nebuchadnezzar for seven years because of pride.

God plays hard balls – Metallic balls to be precise when it comes to righteousness and justice

God plays metallic balls when it comes to implementing what He stands on in any sphere or realm. It may take long in coming but it does come.

Our positioning – Righteousness and Justice

What kind of people should we be when it concern matters of righteousness and justice especially when deliverance is on sight?

Let’s look at a very interesting story concerning the exchange and deals that went on between Pharaoh and Moses.

Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, “Go, serve the Lord. Only your flocks and your herds shall remain behind. Even your little ones may go with you.” But Moses said, “Not a hoof shall be left behind, for we must choose some of them to serve the Lord our God.” – Exodus 10:24-26

After the River Nile had been turned to blood, after frogs infested the land, after gnats and flies filled the air, livestock were felled by diseases, boils covered every body, thunder and hail rent the sky, and locusts ate every living thing, Pharaoh still refused to let God’s people go. But at the ninth plague, three days of utter darkness, he seemed to surrender.

Take your people and go, he told Moses. Do whatever you people do, but—here was the catch
—you must leave your livestock behind.

Some of us might have taken that deal. Some of us might have figured that was the best we were going to get, declared victory, and high-tailed it out of there.

Some of us will opt for war in a foreign land to implement democracy which we could not deploy in our sphere or realm. We should not settle for diversionary actions. We must stick to fairness, righteousness and justice in clime before we head to foreign territories.

But Moses knew better. He understood that true freedom comes from God, not desperate oppressors. As much as Moses desired his people’s liberation, he understood that some things are simply non-negotiable. Identity, for example. Religious and other rights, physical and emotional safety, agency, all the things that make us who we are.

So the people continued to wait, trusting that justice would come—eventually, by God—on their terms.

Sometimes it’s tempting to settle for apology without reparation, an end to the struggle, half a loaf. But God wants so much more for us than that, and God will make a way.

Jesus’famous statement in sermon on the mount and other follow-up scriptures for meditation and application:

Matthew 7:12

12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.

12 The word “therefore” probably refers to the entire body of the sermon (Matthew 5:17-7:12), for here there is a second reference to “the Law and the Prophets” (see comment on  Matthew 5:17); Jesus stresses that he has taught about the true direction in which the OT law points, i.e., the Golden Rule. This rule sums up the Law and the Prophets (Romans 13:9 – For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.)

In the context of fulfilling the Scriptures, it provides a handy summary of the righteousness to be displayed in the kingdom (Matthew 5:20).

The verb translated “sums up” (lit., “is”) might properly be translated “fulfills,” as in Acts 2:16. In the deepest sense, therefore, the rule is the Law and the Prophets in the same way as the kingdom is the fulfillment of all that the Law and the Prophets foretold.

John adds to this Golden Rule in

1 John 4:20

20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

20 The confidence we have in knowing that God loves us delivers us from fear but not from responsible action. In fact, God’s love for us and in us sets us free to love our brother and sister even as God loves them. To fail this test of love proves that one’s claim to love God is a lie—just as the previous claims to have fellowship with God while walking in darkness ( 1 John 1:6), to know him while disobeying his commands ( 1 John 2:4), or to possess the Father while denying his Son were lies (1 John 2:22-23). John has a double sense in “liar.” A liar does not speak the truth in that what he claims is false, and his actions show that he has divorced himself from the reality of God.

The second part of the scripture means that if one fails the test of loving a visible brother, such a one makes it certain that he or she does not love the invisible God; this proves that such a person has no true love at all.

Conclusion : We must not settle for throwing dice, we must stand for righteousness and Justice. We must treat others as we want them to treat us in all our affairs so that we can truly be sons and daughters of our heavenly Father.

Prayer

God who delivers, deliver us from the temptation to sell ourselves short. May we always hold out for your glory. Help us to not settle for throwing dice, help us stand for righteousness and Justice. Help us to treat others as we want them to treat us in all our affairs so that we can truly be sons and daughters of Yours, Heavenly Father, in Jesus name and all the people say?

Shalom to you and have a restful weekend in Him!
