The Holy Bible: All Flesh Is Grass

The Holy Bible is the testimony of men who have sought to serve God throughout history.

The Old Testament records the founding of Judaism and the trials of the original Children of Israel. The New Testament contains the Gospels of Jesus Christ, along with some of the writings of His followers, the first Christians and now the Spiritual Children of Israel.

The Bible is a complex and wonderful tapestry of history and prophecy, and records most of what we know about what God Himself calls 'The Controversy of Zion'.

    "Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel." (Micah 6:2 KJV)

    "For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion." (Isaiah 34:8 KJV)

This controversy was, and always has been, about God's Law. In the Holy Bible, the only words written directly by the hand of God were written on two tables of stone: The Ten Commandments.

The Holy Bible is the history of man's rebellion against God's Law.

In the Old Testament God's Law was implemented by people like Moses as a stern school master. People were told to follow the Law in order that they might live in peace and security. If they didn't follow the Law, they would receive dire punishments. Many people did follow the Law, but others who wished to be exalted over other people rebelled against the Law.

In the New Testament Jesus came and sacrificed His own life in order that people could follow their hearts, without being burdened by guilt, and without being punished by other men if they did not follow the Law.

In this way, a point would quickly be reached by people at which the consequences of their rebellion again God's Law would become obvious to them. A point at which they will see for themselves that God's Law is essential for all to have in order that man does not destroy himself and the earth.

    "For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming." (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 KJV)

Today, that wicked way of ours is revealed. The Controversy of Zion is technically over - however people have not recognized it yet. As Jesus said Himself: People need eyesalve in order see.

Below are some samples of the prophecies in the Bible that are meant for us today. I read them with awe as I wonder how His Mysterious Omnipotence could, through His Love for us, inspire His prophets to describe scenes of today that we are so familiar with - but describe them over 2,500 years ago!

Please read them in His Love:

From Isaiah:

Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins. The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain: And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry?

All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!

Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. (Isaiah 40:1-11)

...Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?

It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in: That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. (Isaiah 40:21-23)

...They that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

"As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father:
and I lay down my life for the sheep.
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold:
them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice;
and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd."
(John 10:15-16 KJV)
