What was your intent? Was it for material gain to defraud another and to play a hand of deception?
Was it to pull a rug out at an opportune moment; to rise in power for your own glory? Was it to extend an olive branch at a time that would only benefit your cause and your plot. No peace was really extended and no peace would reside.
There is an expected end to all diabolical plots. It is called justice. It is called mercy for the innocent and oppressed. Just as you showed your hand, so will I, says the Lord. Just as you stepped in that place of deceit; so will I step into my place of Liberty and justice for all. So, too will I make crooked the path of all perpetrators of ill intent but the captive’s path will be made straight. You think I do not see. You think time has been on your side. I can orchestrate my will at a moments notice. I can and I will and it will be swift and effectual … making wise the simple. My sword is two-edged. Do not question My intent; only know it is just.
Remember I will always make a way of escape. I will open a door but many will be in too deep and will not attempt the way of repentance. My forgiveness is swift, as well, and swift to bring peace, reconciliation and justice. Because your intent was so devious you cannot even imagine how I could extend forgiveness for such. You say it is not possible but I say, Yes it is possible. Just ask, seek and knock. I will hear, be found and open the door. My intent of showing you your sin as Davids’, “You are the man”, is to offer my hand of forgiveness.
Fall in humility before a loving God. Call out before one who hears your anguish. One who will extend the scepter designed to give life, freedom and eternal and complete forgiveness. To remember no more your sin.
HE WHO SINS AND REPENTS IS SAVED.
If the fiddler was brought in to play to deceive, who set up the bandstand and who drew the crowd. Only a few will understand this riddle of My Kingdom. But you will soon know My Intent, says the Lord.
“Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
“The Lord searches all hearts and understands all the intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will cast you off forever.”
I Chronicless 28:9b
“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
“A good man obtains favor from the Lord, But a man of wicked intentions He will condemn.”
