The Vanity of Ruth Bader Ginsburg - A Biblical Perspective

 


Beloved, it is never a joyful occasion in the death and passing on of anyone, especially when ETERNITY is in the equation for a son or daughter of Adam (Eccl. 12:13-14, John 3:16-17;36, Rom. 5:11-21, Eph. 2:8-9, Heb. 9:27). Almighty God has testified throughout the years of time since the beginning of His creation to this ETERNAL unchangeable truth and sent His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Son to be its RIGHTEOUS PROPITIATION and ETERNAL Savior (Gen. 3, Ezek. 18:23; 33:11, John 3:16-17, R
om. 5:12-21, 1 John 4:10, Rev. 13:8)! For before the foundation of the world, Almighty God has ALWAYS had an ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Savior and an ETERNAL plan of  redemption for ALL who sought an existence apart from Him (Gen. 3, Acts 4:12; 17:24-34, Rev. 13:8). 

From Cain to the Anti-Christ and to the rebellious at the end of the thousand-year reign of Jesus; Almighty God, with ALL His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person, desires none to be ETERNALLY lost but for ALL be delivered from their unregenerate and fallen sin nature estate!

From Cain to the Anti-Christ and to the rebellious at the end of the thousand-year reign of Jesus; Almighty God, with ALL His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person, desires none to be ETERNALLY lost but for ALL to be delivered from their unregenerate and fallen estate (John 3:16-17; 36). Jesus shed His RIGHTEOUS blood for ALL of Adam's fallen race that all would have an ETERNAL RIGHTEOUPROPITIATION for ETERNITY (1 John 4:10)! Tragically, this fallen world - which follows and is addicted to the lawless and unrighteous rebellious bent and course of the greatest destroying tyrant, murderer, and thug of the universe (Matt, 25:41,46; John 8:44, Rom. 1:18-32, Eph. 2:1-2, 2 Thess. 2:10-12, Rev. 20:10-15) - willingly choose an ETERNITY of ruin apart from their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator. They are tragically more than willing to receive the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS consequences of RIGHTEOUS torment over one in RIGHTEOUSNESS harmony and order with their ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator; who loved them and gave Himself for their fallen UNRIGHTEOUS humanity (John 3:16-17)!

Our lives and existence here in time and on planet earth are an ETERNAL testimony to all with what we did with all that we have known about our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator!

Our lives and existence here in time and on planet earth are an ETERNAL testimony to all to what we did with all that we have known about our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator (Rom. 1:18-32, Heb. 9:27). Jesus stated that you will know all men by their fruit and by what they do (Matt. 7:15-20; Rom. 18-32, Gal. 5:19-22, Rev. 22:11). We as fallen humanity are more than knowing when it comes to knowing exactly who our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator is and what He ETERNALLY requires; so in the end, every knee will bow and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS LORD of all time and ETERNITY (Psalm 19, Isa. 45:23, Eccl. 12:13-14, Rom. 1:18-32, 14:11, Phil. 2:5-11, 2 Peter 3:4-5, Rev. 20:10-15)!

We as fallen humanity are more than knowing when it comes to knowing exactly who our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator is and what He ETERNALLY requires; so in the end, every knee will bow and EVERY tongue confess that Jesus Christ is the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS LORD of all time and ETERNITY!

Now dear friends, in light of Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing into ETERNITY to give a FULL account to her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and to her SUPREME ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Judge; nothing is needed to be said about her unrighteous war against her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator for it has been very public for years. Her godless mind, her lawless actions, and her vile passions have testified to all that she absolutely disdained her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and did all she could to get Him removed from our national public square (Rom. 1:18-32)! Ruth's deeds and works are abundantly known by all and look now at the violent and godless reaction from her lawless and demonic faithful in the American Left (Rom. 1:32, Jude 1:10)! Indeed, all her efforts in her vain war on Judeo/Christian America, against her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator, and against His moral absolutes and laws have all been ETERNALLY vain and are indeed vanity of vanities! Her little rebellion in time has now come to an ETERNAL end and have been ETERNALLY crushed by the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Person of Almighty God! The very God who ETERNALLY loved her and died for her ETERNAL wellbeing; her PERFECT Lamb in whom she wared against, is now her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Judge (John 3:16-17, 1 John 4:10)! May RBG's existence here in time be an ETERNAL warning and lesson to all that whatever drum one beats in this life every beat will be brought before Almighty God to give a FULL account in RIGHTEOUSNESS (Eccl. 12:13-14, John 3:16-17, Rev. 20:11-15)!

Now dear friends, in light of Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg passing into ETERNITY to give a FULL account to her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and to her SUPREME ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Judge; nothing is even needed to be said about her unrighteous war against her ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator!

The Old Testament Book of Ecclesiastes is the tragic biography of Adam’s fallen race (i.e., humanity) told by the wisest of all men, King Solomon. King Solomon possessed it all: wisdom, brilliance, discernment, authority, prestige, riches/ wealth, property/ possessions, power, fame, women, and glory. Amazingly, as he was reflecting on his life in his last days, he made this very sobering and tragic statement: “Vanity of vanities…all is vanity” (Eccl. 1:1-15, 12:7-8).


In possessing all of this stature and achievement, it never satisfied the  ETERNAL void of his heart. All of it did not - and could not - yield peace and contentment. In the end, all of Solomon's great achievements and pomp could never deliver him in the hour of his death. To Solomon, all indeed was truly dust in the wind...

Dust in the Wind, the title of a song released by the group Kansas in the late 1970s, is a melancholy piece regarding the terrible uncertainties and brevity of earthly existence. There is no certainty, no hope, no expectation, no solution, and no deliverance. The song is painted with pessimistic colors and presents a bleak and tragic picture with absolute abandonment and no salvation to be found. All we are is dust in the wind….

,
"All we are is dust in the wind..."

What the majority of humanity (and the song) greatly misses is that without Almighty God, our Creator and Sustainer and His righteousness, all is indeed an absolute tragedy, vanity and dust in the wind (Psalm 39:5). My friend, that was never God’s plan and purpose for His creation (Rom. 5:12-21). It is Almighty God’s sincerest desire that all would come to the saving knowledge of His Son Jesus Christ and have ETERNAL LIFE. The Bible states:

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17)

"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die…?" (Ezekiel 33:11)

"For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost" (Matt 18:11)

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Matt 11:28-30)

Jesus said, "The thief (Satan) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (John 10:10)

Your existence here in time does not have to end in vanity. Almighty God has a great future plan and purpose for your life.


But as it is written, "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him"(1 Cor. 2:9)

"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live" (John 11:25)

"And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever" (Rev. 22:5)

.
Without Almighty God’s remedy for our sinful condition which is found only in the Person of His Son Jesus Christ, indeed all is truly vanity and dust in the wind.
.
"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? " (Matt 16:26)

"Behold, thou hast made my days as a handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah" (Psalm 39:5).

.
"And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" (Rev 20:11-15)

In the end, Solomon fully comprehended that Almighty God was absolutely essential for the existence of man. To know Him is life  ETERNAL with great expectation and purpose!

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil" (Eccl. 12:13,14)

Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? To know Him is to have  ETERNAL LIFE and possess  ETERNAL HOPE. May it be your sincere desire to know the One that made it all possible for you to have all of God’s highest and best for your life - both here in time and also for ETERNITY.

The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

A true and sobering assessment.

This woman reached the pinnacle of her profession with all the accolades, money,praise and adoration that her position could bring. And in the end, without the Lord Jesus Christ and his wondrous salvation, her life was for naught if she did not know him.

She has stepped into eternity and her future lies in the hands of the Eternal Righteous Judge of All.

Thanks for all your hard work and service to our Lord.

YBIC,
