Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

We Must Either Leap Over Them, Or Tread Upon Them!

A man's enemies will be the members of his own household.

Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me;

And anyone who does not take his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me. 

Mat 10:36  And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Mat 10:37  He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Mat 10:38  And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

Take heed of the snare in your family!

It is one of the Devil's great hinder us from piety by our nearest relations...and to shoot us with our own rib!

He tempted Adam by his wife.

Who would have suspected the Devil there?

He tempted Job by his wife, "Are you still holding on to your integrity? Curse God and die!"

Job 2:9  Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.

Thus would the Devil have cooled Job's love for God; but the shield of his faith quenched this fiery dart! 

Take heed of such tempters!

It is better to go to Heaven with their hatred-than to Hell with their love!

If our dearest friends and family lie in our way to Heaven...we must either leap over them, or tread upon them!
