Wisdom of God, Wrath of God, Wrath of the Titan: Consequences of defying God

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Titans, in Greek Mythology, were powerful Beings that even gods could barely contend with.  The ship, Titanic, was named for these Beings that were equal with gods.  Everyone thought that the Titanic was indestructible.  Who knows but that the Titanic was cursed by the name.  God does not like to be mocked, he does not like anyone to be over him.  I am not saying that he caused all those people to die, but we have to be careful not to put any gods before our God.

If men were angels, no government would be necessary.  If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls in government would be necessary.  In framing government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the government; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.  Fed. 51 Madison

Proverbs 4:1 – 27 (NIV): Wisdom is Supreme

1 Listen, my sons, to a father’s instruction; pay attention and gain understanding.  2 I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching.  3 When I was a boy in my father’s house, still tender, and only child of my mother, 4 he taught me and said, ” Lay hold of my words with all your heart; keep my commands and you will live.  5 Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.  6 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over.  7 Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.  Though it cost all you have, get understanding.  8 Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.  9 She will set a garland of grace on your head and present you with a crown of splendor.  10 Listen my son accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many.  11 I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.  12 When you walk your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble.  13 Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life.  14 Do not set foot on path of the wicked or walk in the way of evil men.  15 Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way.  16 For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall.  17 They eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.  18 The path of righteous is like the first gleam dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of the day, 19 But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;  they do not know what makes them stumble.  20 My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words.  21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.  23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.  24 Put away perversity from your mouth; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.  25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.  26 Make level paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm.  27 Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.

Petra wrote song Judas’ kiss, the song talks about how people disobey and ignore God.
