The Great Hall of Fame
Sh'ma ( Hebrew) Of Great Fame and Repute, those that Heard and Obeyed are listed in the Great Hall of Fame. read on.....
The very fundamental foundation and framework of the Bible is to seek God first, to seek God is to submit or to turn away from the things that are not of him and place God at your centre of focus and understand your identity in him.We see that in Genesis, the first book of Moses describes Adam and Eve and the tree of Knowledge that there is a definate contrast in both Knowledge and Wisdom.
The First is the Natural type Flesh wisdom , where all decisions will be based on Mans own best interest placing him at the centre of all things.
The Second is the Divine Wisdom where God is central to all of our wisdom and Knowlege of all things.
Listen !!! Obedience is better than Sacrifice (Samuel 15-22)
The first book of Moses describes this fundamental knowledge and understanding right from the beginning, God has a Mandate to bring us back to a Utopian Society, but to be able to carry his Mantle we not only need leaders who listen to God , we need Leaders who Obey what God says. It is important to understand that through Christ a portal was opened, through Jesus Christ as our intercessor we are also able to Hear God and we are given the Holy Spirit as a Tutor to help us understand.
"Sh'ma is the very frame work of the the characters in the Old Testament " those like Noah and Abraham who listened and obeyed and in contrast was the Divinely appointed King Saul who was in communication with God. King Saul was a perfect example of a Divinely appointed leader who did indeed hear God but was not Obedient,God removed him from his Throne.
Each and every phase of Gods mandate of getting his people to the promised land could not be completed whithout characters much like Moses who stood in the presence of the God Almighty and "Listened and Obeyed" , Joshua and other Old Testament characters who made way for Jesus the Christ who was to come like the Samuel, King David, King Solomon, Daniel, just to name a few.
This principle remained through out the characters in the New Testament and this is the very fabric if we are to be the overcomers, in fact in the New Testament those who Listened & Obeyed ,Sh'ma are listed in the "GREAT HALL OF FAME " Hebrews 11 those who were faithful.
If we are to be truly servants of God and carry Gods Mantle of Truth in his Word and Gods Love to the World so that Gods Mandate can be completed as in John's Revelation.
(Rev 3 :20-22) Behold, I stand at the door and knock : if any man HEARS my VOICE and open the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.21 To him that Overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my Throne ,even as I also Overcame and am set down with my father in his Throne. 22 He that has an ear let him HEAR what the Spirit saith unto the Churches.
As a Church , the body of Christ , we are called to Hear and Obey in the last and final days . Sh'ma.
The Word is a Lamp unto my Feet
And a Light unto my Path.
