Have you forgotten the sins of your ancestors, sins of kings and queens of Judah,
and the sins you and your wives committed in Judah and Jerusalem?
To this very hour you have shown no remorse or reverence.
No one has chosen to follow my law and the decrees
I gave to you and your ancestors before you.
JEREMIAH 44:9-10 NLT
Have you learned the lesson of My Book? Only truth endures.
Other books need updating, but the Book from Heaven is ahead of date.
Other writings need revising, but Scripture never requires editing.
My Word stood with Elijah against the false prophets of Baal,
against Korah and his rebel band opposed to My select leaders,
against Ananias and Sapphira and their flagrant lies,
and it will stand against the Devil at Armageddon.
When Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn accepted the Nobel Prize for Literature,
he quoted a Russian proverb that reflects the power of Truth:
“One word of truth outweighs the world.”
Have you learned the lesson of blessing? Only obedience brings joy.
Disobedience causes sadness and tragedy—it is good for nobody.
Following My instructions is the path to celebration—it is good for all.
“There’s no other way to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey”
(John Sammis, “Trust and Obey”).
Have you learned the lesson of the boomerang? Causes have effects.
Every thought, word, and deed invariably affects you.
Ignoring Me is moral suicide—to go your own way is to self-destruct.
The old saying is right—"what goes around comes around."
Have you learned the lesson of a broken heart? Repentance is My desire.
Confession and contrition are required for admittance to My Presence.
Before you see My face, you must cry your eyes out because of sin.
The Bible is right—the proud are My foes, the humble are My favorites.
Learn your lessons well—be an honor student in Life University.
