This ⭐🗝️meme reminds me that our curses stretch back to the days before our current generations; before the days when my parents and grandparents fled Cuba in the 60s; before, even, the days of Moses and the Ten Commandments.
The curses spoken of in Deuteronomy are Old Testament days, back to when the Hebrews crossed the Jordan to the land prepared for them by God, back to when Moses came down the mountain after meeting with God and getting God’s Directions to The Promised Land.
Moses returned to a camp celebrating Baal, because they got a bit distracted in his absence. (🤔football, baseball, ballet, ballots…?)
Angered, he destroyed the tablets God had given him, then left to write the Ten Commandments again.
“I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.”
The First Commandment tells us not to have other gods, other idols. Which makes me think of this generation’s “American Idol” phenomenon where we literally idolize people just like us 🤦 and dream of being just like them, or like that famous writer or that quarterback we follow.
In my studies, I’ve found that Jesus is the only role model we need, and the Bible is The Manuel for Emmanuel (the Son of God), or How to Claim the Gift of Eternal Life. Jesus opened the door to His Father’s Kingdom. He showed us how we are to live. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, (John 14:6). Unfortunately, when following His Way, some of us find His is the Narrow Way, at which point we rebel and claim there are many ways to God.
Truly, truly, ALL paths do lead to God, …. first through The Judgement, then, hopefully, to Heaven, our Eternal Paradise; but really, only one path leads there, start to finish.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
Jesus came to show us the Way. His life and teachings were meant to teach us how to navigate through our own lives in order that “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do,” said Jesus in John 14:12.
How should we be if we are to follow Him? I’m learning, just as all of you, but I believe we’re supposed to live with the constant thought:
What Would Jesus Do?
WWJD points us toward the True Path in our own lives. As we go through life, that thought should guide us.
One day I realized the life I was living wouldn’t lead me anywhere near His Narrow Path. Even a life of going to church once a week still left me all of the other days serving everything other than God!
Realizing this and identifying my True Goal, I put up a big stop 🛑 and rewrote my story. I got baptized again, and changed my life’s Path.
Since then, I’ve been doing my own Shadow Work, breaking and destroying those parts of me still living under Adam’s Generational Curse of disobeying, then trying to hide from, God.
I’ve been rebuilding myself into my goal to become my own version of The Christ within all of us, because, when it all comes down to it, I want to be deemed worthy enough to play my harp in God’s Heavenly Kingdom.☺️
I wish you great success on your own road map, my friends. … Walk with Jesus! 👣👣👍🙏🎉
