The Laws of Life
The laws of life are like light-houses, which are consistent, permanent, and immovable. Irrespective of dispensation or civilization or era their foundations stand sure. Being indifferent to color, social status or country, or religion, the laws of life apply to all nevertheless.
Technology has not reduced the gestation period of an expectant mother, the last time I checked.
No man can violate or break a true law. When you go against a law, the law hurts you; you don’t hurt the law. For example, when you jump from a pinnacle, you don’t violate gravity, gravity violates you; pulls you down. And the consequences can be calamitous. The law is not destroyed, you destroy yourself.
The knowledge of the laws of life and their right application is the beginning of life. Since the time that God created the world and rested, God has not created anything new. He set in motion, the cause of nature and its laws, and how every created thing must be sustained and has since that time not interfered or changed how anything should function.
The product called human being still comes in two models; the male and the female model. The sun still continues to be the ruler by day and the moon by night. There are still twenty-four hours in a day and seven days in a week. We just need to understand that certain things never change.
Laws have inherent principles that regulate the nature of life. They also regulate the nature of relationships. Most of the things people attribute to God or the devil are neither here nor there and it is a result of their lack of understanding of the laws of life.
God does not punish anyone for wrongdoing, punishments and rewards are already inherent in the laws of nature. For example, if the fish becomes tired of water and decides to no longer live in it, the consequence is death. God does not need to kill it. This is because the law for the fish is, it needs water to live. The fish does not have the luxury of an option if it wants to live to choose whether or not to have a relationship with water. It is a must! For survival.
When the plant is disconnected from the dust of the earth, death begins immediately, because the law of the plant is the dust of the earth. Everything God created has its source. He called out the creature from its source.
When God wanted to create the fish and all creatures that will live in the ocean, He spoke to the waters.
When He wanted to create plants and animals that will be on the land, He spoke to the earth.
Guess what He spoke to when He wanted to create mankind? Himself!
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (Genesis 1: 26 – 27)
As the law of the fish is water, and the law of the plant and the mammals is earth, the law of mankind is God. The soul begins to die when it disconnects from God. Man’s connection to God is non-negotiable and mandatory. We disengage at our own peril. We don’t hurt God when we ignore him and break His laws, we rather hurt ourselves.
The absence of law is the beginning of destruction. God’s laws are not burdensome or restrictive as some people may have us to believe. He gives us laws out of love, only to save, not from just physical death but also eternal destruction.
Unless thy law had been my delights,
I should then have perished in mine affliction.
I will never forget thy precepts:
for with them thou hast quickened me.
(Psalm 119: 92 – 93)
