he insulted the king…

Moroccan schoolboy, aged 18, has been jailed for insulting the king after replacing the monarch’s name with that of his favourite football club.(this happened a while back tho…) He altered the phrase: “God, The Nation, The King” on the school blackboard to read: “God, The Nation, Barcelona.” FC Bercelona says it has appointed a lawyer to look into whether they can help the boy, within the framework of Moroccan law. The family of the boy, Yassine Belassal, is appealing against the ruling ! Earlier in 2008, one man received a three year sentence for creating a mock facebook profile of the King’s brother, before receiving a royal pardon.

Now, as men are punished for “embarrassing” earthly kings,…. what would happen to the earth if the King of kings decides to punish men for daily embarrassment of His glory?. ..

The Holy Spirit wants you to celebrate the mercy of God today while dedicating your life to a greater walk in the beauty of His holiness. ‘cos If God was to mark iniquity, who will stand? We would have all been in prison houses….No wonder Psalm 25:10 says

The Lord leads with unfailing love and faithfulness all who keep his covenant and obey his demands.…

and Ps 59:16-17

And me? I'm singing your prowess,
shouting at cockcrow your largesse,
For you've been a safe place for me,
a good place to hide.
Strong God, I'm watching you do it,
I can always count on you
God, my dependable love.

this is point blank.. Ps 66:20 is the appreciation that must not depart from your lips daily…..:.

Blessed be God, Who has not rejected my prayer nor removed His mercy and loving-kindness from being [as it always is] with me.

Very well then did Jeremiah declare in Lam 3:22 “It is of the Lords mercies that we are not consumed”…..

That’s why no matter what you are passing through, always celebrate the fact of His mercies that is given to you ! As long as God’s mercy is available to you, there is nothing good that will not come your way..Don’t also continue in sin..cos He is also a consuming fire..

most words from our daily manner, thot i'd share..

The poets voice ~~~ said...

Our God who is both The Lion of Judah and the Lamb of God, gentle yet fierce!

He loves us unconditionally and yes Grace is abundant for us but dishonouring HIM has a price... a very costly one!

it's been a while, how are you?

Kafo said...

dooes this mean u are back or u are only teasing us

i hope all is well

Debbie said...

It's God's mercies we are not consumed. But shall we contiune in sin that grace may abound? God forbide. Let holness be our watch word

dbthinks said...

That translation of Psalm 59 is so on point.......Thx for sharing..

jhazmyn said...

If God was human....hmmm, i hate to think of what life'll be like...what'll our lives be without His mercy, grace and unconditional love....even in those moment when we're so overwhelmed and we question Him (like David and job) he lovingly corrects and comforts us

Remi, United Kingdom said...

hmmm quite funny, I was reading Psalm 58 and 59 yesterday and today in the wake of all the madness going on in British Politics.. the stealing, lying and all that... Should God punish or should he have mercy...

ditto @ Debbie.. it is because of God's mercies that we are not consumed. I know for one that I fail to meet the mark daily, no matter how much I try, so I am ever thankful for Almighty Baba's mercies and His, which are new every morning...

Thanks for this timely piece... much luv x

LUMIDEE said...

Very inspiring post.You couldnt have been more right.I imagine the fury of God's face each time we fall into sin and like Remi said,no matter how hard i try,i realize i still fall way short but im always mindful of his grace which is strong support for me in times of troubles and tribulations.

Thanks for sharing this insightful piece.God help us all to fulfill the desires of the kingdom...

LG said...

father forgive us ............

Telekinesys said...

How often we forget that our Father defines royalty.But for His grace......His mercies, we would be back to being dust.

Thanks for the reminder

Beulah! said...

Welcome back!....It's good to know God is not man & that his mercies endures forever...it makes me stand in awe of him more & more knowing that he loves me. His faithfulness has got nothing to do with how faithful i've been to him, He just so loving, kind & forgiving.

Thanks for blessing my heart with this post Simeone, meanwhyl, im totally roking this Fred Hammond's song.....lalalaa..!

Afrobabe said...

WORD!!!

aloted said...

infact afrobabe u have summed it up- "WORD"

Jaycee said...

If God decided to punish anyone mocking His name, a lot of us would be behind bars now...we consciously or unconsciously play around with His Name daily. Just the mere fact that sometimes we have doubts concerning His power is sufficient to cause us to mock His name.

But I thank God that He is a merciful Father...my lips shall not depart from His DAILY praise...Amen

justdoyin said...

how touching...especially this; "If God was to mark iniquity, who will stand?"...I dare say no one will...God help us all...

naijagirl said...

If God did punish us for every time that we fell short of his glory....I wonder if there would be anyone still on earth. It goes to show you the awesomeness of God. His love every morning is new, his mercies and grace is sufficient for us. I thank God for the mercy seat. I thank God for mercy.
thanks for this, nice post
