James exclaimed, “I know my left and my right!” We watched as he properly pointed left and pointed right. Gabriel was adamant that his brother was wrong as he had pointed right for left and left for right. From his perspective, he was right, and his brother was wrong. Trying to explain the “perspective factor” is tough for little and big minds alike! The perspective factor is involved with life’s every interaction. Ironically, perspectives today are represented by the left and the right. What is conservative and what is liberal? Opinions are plentiful; there- fore, being offended is commonplace. The question remains: What is right and what is wrong? Is there absolute truth? Is there truth regardless of perspective? This concept has leaked into the church. I have often heard in discussion, “That’s the way you read it. This is the way I read it.” Try using this same reasoning when you are pulled over by a police offi- cer who asks, “Did you read the “speed limit” sign? Explain why you were speeding.” “Well officer, I read that it said, ‘speed.’ So, I did.” You may just get hauled off to jail for contempt, as they will throw the book at you. Unfortunately, the book seems to be constantly revised because the Good Book has been thrown out of our schools, courtrooms, and many of our homes. Does this flawed reasoning apply to the Bible? Can it be rewritten or altered to fit with the present “standard” of today? The Hebrews writer explains that the word of God is unchanging and therefore, unchangeable. “Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings (Hebrews 13:7-9a). The reason the word of God is unchanging is because the words that are found within its 66 books did not come from the perspective of man. God’s word is supernatural: “And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay atten- tion as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:19-21). There are no “speed” signs that line our roads, even if we fail to read the bottom word “limit”. The police officer would consider that ignorance of the law. The word of God is the same. You will get the wrong message every time if you fail to approach God’s word with a desire to fully understand. Pay atten- tion to the context of every verse (the full thought before and after a passage in question). So many con- sider the context to be their own viewpoint, rather than the way God intended His word to be understood. Solomon said, “Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil” (Proverbs 4:26,27). Do your very best to approach God’s word without swerving and strive not to allow the interference of your perspective factor. A Note From the Harp

In the previous two articles we noticed from Joshua 11 that Jabin and the Anakim had their trust in the wrong thing. Jabin was trusting in a league of na- tions with an army said by Josephus to consist of 300,000 foot soldiers, 10,000 cavalry and 20,000 chariots. However that league could not save him! The Anakim were trusting in their physical strength. They were giants that so many were afraid to fight. However they were driven out of the land by Joshua. The only one who had his trust in the right place was Joshua for Joshua placed his trust in the Lord. God had told Joshua, “Do not be afraid be- cause of them, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel. You shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire.” (Joshua 11:6 - NKJV) Forty years earlier the fear inspiring giants caused the Israelites to feel like “grasshoppers” but now Joshua trod them underfoot like so much grass in a field. So much for the giants. Joshua’s accomplish- ments are note worthy against such odds, it was pos- sible because he trusted God. When Israel finally en- tered the promised land, Caleb was an elderly man of 85 years. Caleb told the people on that day, “So Moses swore on that day, saying, 'Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheri- tance and your children's forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.' 10 "And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty -five years old. 11 "As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in. 12 "Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said” (Joshua 14:9-12). “When the situation is hopeless …That’s the time for faith, for trusting in God! Actually there is no such thing as a hopeless situation for one who trusts in God… But the fact is that most of us turn to God only when we think the situation is hopeless. As long as we can find something in our circumstances on which to pin our hope we trust that possibility rather than God. Until we have used up all our options, and we can see no shred of hope in our circumstances ….Then, as a last resort, we may turn to God. Someone put it this way: ‘As long as we can think up possible answers – we depend upon human ingenuity – or luck – or coincidence – etc. Then, when alterna- tives are exhausted and there is nowhere else to turn…We give God His chance.’ How much better to trust God no matter what! CIA Due to the holiday week there will be no CIA meeting this Tuesday November 20th.
