    2 SAMUEL 12:5 AND DAVIDS ANGER WAS GREATLY KINDLED AGAINST THE MAN AND HE SAID TO NATHAN AS THE LORD LIVETH THE MAN THAT HATH DONE THIS THING SHALL SURELY DIE--12:6-- AND SHALL RESTORE THE LAMB FOURFOLD BECAUSE HE DID THIS THING AND BECAUSE HE HAD NO PITY --12:7-- AND NATHAN SAID TO DAVID --- THOU ART THE MAN --- THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL I ANOINTED THEE KING OVER ISRAEL AND I DELIVERED...

    "The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect." The world is full of voices, all kinds of voices longing to be heard, all pushing each other out of the way so they can have the microphone! All who are of the truth hear Jesus' voice, and follow Him. The spirit that makes men heathen strives for a world with everything INSTEAD OF CHRIST!
