TO OBEY IS BETTER, THAN SACRIFICE

So Samuel said: “Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, As in obeying the voice of the Lord ? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord , He also has rejected you from being king.”
{I Samuel 15:22-23}
Have you ever wondered, what you are giving up or losing,because of disobedience. Could this be the reason why you feel like you are cursed,or why trials,tribulation,and troubles seems to always knock on your door,or why you can’t get ahead in life ? What would happen if you decided to just obey everything God says,instead of just hearing and not doing,let’s hear and do What God says, and see what would happen. Jesus was humble and obedient, and was exalted because of it. Read it for yourself, in Philippians 2:8-9,”And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name”.
Here’s some things He tells us to do.”Behold,I set before you this day a blessing and a curse : A blessing,if ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God,which I command you this day; and a curse,if ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God,but turn aside out of the way,which I command you this day,to go after other gods,which you have not known”{Deuteronomy 11:26-28}. However,in verses 16&17,it warns us,”Take heed to yourselves,that your heart be not deceived,and ye turn aside,and serve other gods,worship them; And then the Lord’s wrath be kindled against you,and He shut up the heaven,that there be no rain,and that the land yield not her fruit;and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you”. Did you kindle the wrath of God? He said,in 1John 1:5-10 “This,then,is the message which we have heard of him,and declare unto you,that God is light,and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him,and walk in darkness,we lie,and do not the truth; But if we walk in the light,as He is in the light,we have fellowship one with another,and the blood of Jesus Christ,His son,cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin,we deceive ourselves,and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins,He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned,we make Him a liar,and His word is not in us.

In 3 John 2 it says,”Beloved,I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health,even as thy soul prospereth”. Psalms34:10 says,”Many sorrows shall be to the wicked;but he that trusteth in the Lord,mercy shall compass him about”. King David,said in Psalms 37:25-28,”I have been young,and now am old;yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,nor his seed begging bread. He is merciful,and lendeth,and his seed is blessed. Depart from evil,and do good,and dwell for evermore. For the Lord loveth judgment,and forsaketh not His saints;they are preserved forever,but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off”. However,Psalms 34:17-19 says,”The righteous cry,and the Lord heareth,and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near unto those who are of a broken heart,and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous;but the Lord delivereth him out of them all”.

    Mk 10:28-30
    28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.

    29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,

    30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

    Mt 5:10-12
    10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

    12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
