Without Law and Order; there will be Disorder
The Earth was Created with Order
Before God created the earth with all the contents, and placed man into it, “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep…” (Genesis 1:2). It was never in the plan of God for the earth to be empty, or with only two people (Adam and Eve). God is orderly, wise and thoughtful; and knows exactly what we need! Isaiah 45:11 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
God’s plan was for mankind to multiply and produce children, and this began with a foundation, through the only possible way for creation of family, which is between a man and woman. If mankind distort or corrupt God’s laws to suit their own desires and plans, then the outcome is disorder of all kinds. Why are we surprised? Furthermore, the Word already said in II Timothy 3:1ff: This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
What you see happening is prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes.
Furthermore, although God in His wisdom created a perfect man in His own image, mankind rebelled against Him. The following is man’s response to God’s Commandments for order and discipline: Job 21:14-15 Therefore they say unto God, Depart from us; for we desire not the knowledge of thy ways. What [is] the Almighty, that we should serve him? And what profit should we have, if we pray unto him?
No comment here; the obvious is clear for all to see!!!
Despite mankind’s actions, God’s main intention was for order, peace, harmony, love and all the good things we all desire in life. Recognizing the need for interaction and and life, God encouraged the couple [Adam and Eve] to multiply to fill the earth with people who would obey and fear Him. Genesis 1:27-28, 31a So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, [it was] very good.
Unfortunately, mankind has rebelled against God’s Commandments, resulting in systemic hatred of one another [among all the hues found upon the face of the earth], lack of trust, anarchy, violence, injustices, prejudices, destruction of self and properties, disappointments, fightings, and all kinds of social disarray as people continue to attack one another regardless of the consequences.
When you burn down and destroy your communities leaving people with loss of properties, loss of lives, support and jobs; the rich and famous who are financing your behaviours, sit comfortably in their gated communities with private protection, [yes, they believe in law order; for me but not for thee]. They have well-manicured lawns, trimmed hedges, neatly dressed chauffeurs who open their car doors for them. While you are out there causing havoc, they are quietly enjoying their families as they plan how to make the next billion. Guess what, at the end of it all; you are still poor, without a job, your own home, and some without an education?
Think about it! You are only hurting yourself.
Do not believe the lies being told to you that somebody owes you. Not true! Your future and success is in your hands if you trust Almighty God to guide and direct your path (Proverbs 3:5-6). The real truth is that “somebody, the people who influence your behaviour” own you! The fact that you respond to hateful instructions from people who are rich and godless; without thought for consequences from your activities, only speaks of the level and quality of your mentality, lack of godliness, weakness, being easily led, and poor self expression when you allow others to think for you.
The Importance of a Stable & Orderly Family Organization
God made man in His own image. This was not all. God gave man intellect, knowledge, understanding, perceptual abilities, and wisdom to make decisions and to solve problems so that he can make the right choices. We have thoughts, and emotions, and from those domains actions take place.
Moreover, the family is the first and most effective and sustainable institution known upon the face of the earth. It is unshakeable, and cannot be made extinct because from this formation, all other groups are formed: organizations, corporations, armies, governments; communities, towns, cities, states, countries; nations, regions and territories. From family we create cultures, norms, order, and rules. The main purpose is for stabilization and to raise children who are controlled with rules and training, honest, obedient, disciplined, well cultured, respectful of themselves, and others. To have a stable community and nation, we need God in all of our lives. To exclude Him in any aspect, we will reap a harvest of disorder and destruction of all kinds.
Therefore, to have order, this begins with a foundation, which is based in the home; no other place. If there is disorder in the home; there will be disorder outside of the home.
This is what God said to children, parents, employees, employers, husbands and wives (man and woman).
Clearly, disorder begins from the home!
God’s Instructions for Order To Children: Ephesians 6:1ff Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and you may live long on the earth. Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
To Parents And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
To Employees Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
To Employers And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
To Husbands and Wives (These rules refer to God’s plan of one man and one woman) Whoso finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favour of the LORD. (Proverbs 18:22). Ephesians 5:21-25 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but the sexually immoral, and adulterers God will judge.
If mankind obey God’s instructions, then we will have reasonable peace and order in our families, and nation. Stable families result in emotionally healthy children who will grow up to be healthy and well-adjusted adults. There are too many broken families; and homes with only one parent from the result of divorce; or in some situations, ungodly family formations. These will certainly result in disorderly children who grow up as disorderly adults unable to be controlled by rules or order.
Indeed, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). Right living begins in the home, which only emphasizes the importance for godliness, ethics, and order to be taught and expressed as examples before children, especially in the formative years. Sin destroys morals, values, and upright beliefs, and turns people away from God.
Clearly, without firm and stable family rules, there will be disorder. Therefore, we need law and order in all of our lives; individually, as a family unit, or in all other human formations. The family that is without order, will produce children/adults who are unruly, rebellious, uncontrollable, with lack of discipline which is negligible or absent in most homes. It is from those persons we have adults who are disorderly and ungodly, with uncontrolled behaviours.
When rules are broken; there will be no law and order.
If there is no law and order; the outcome is destruction and anarchy. Think about it the next time you decide to go out and cause destruction.
You hurt yourself, your family, your children, and even the people you claim to love!
More clearly, you hurt your future and the next generation.
You either build or break down. Your actions will create either order or disorder; hatred or love; social interaction or disharmony.
Without Order there will be Disorder!
