The too common, vain, absurd approach

(Eph 6:12 KJV) For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
(Heb 2:14 KJV) Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he ( Jesus Christ) also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
(1 John 2:16 KJV) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father ( God, Jesus, Holy Spirit) , but is of the world.
Prov 16:25 There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
There is nothing good in any man and cursed be he or she that puts their trust in any man over God.
(Rom 3:10 KJV) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
(Rom 3:11 KJV) There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God ( God, Jesus, Holy Spirit)
(Rom 3:12 KJV) They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
(Luke 22:31 KJV) And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
For me some of the greatest absurdities in life is that so called wise and the unwise persons in their false self pride, self centeredness they do try to live their own life, they do often regularly try to live continually a human life on earth disregarding their own creator and disregarding the owner original instruction, guidance manual, the Bible. They try to get rich in their own strength, try to live in their own or others wisdom, in their own understandings, and they even try to get healthy relying on self, mere man, they do put a false significant trust in others .It is no wonder that Jesus had said that in real life without me you can not succeed, get ahead, prosper for the blessing of the lord gives one health and riches, true prosperity as too many of the pretend Christians find out the hard way too doing their own thing. We all, each and everyone do need to see all of life, each event, occurrences from God’s perspectives now as well and not our own.
Too many persons they still do now trust in doctors helping them over God ( God, Jesus, Holy Spirit) . Ironically as many persons have found out some of the so called advanced, recommended medicines available have had dangerous poisons, negative side effects that even cause one to have heart attacks, or liver failure etc..
(Luke 13:16 KJV) And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
For me King Hezekiah in the old testament now typifies that vain human oriented approach.Here was a vain, rich, prosperous person who faced certain death in spite of who he now was , and was healed but he next had not fully learned the error of his ways.
2 Ki 20:1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live. 2 Then he turned his face to the wall, and prayed unto the LORD, saying, 3 I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
2 Chr 32:24 In those days Hezekiah was sick to the death, and prayed unto the LORD: and he spake unto him, and he gave him a sign. 25 But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem. :26 Notwithstanding Hezekiah humbled himself for the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the LORD came not upon them in the days of Hezekiah. 27 And Hezekiah had exceeding much riches and honour: and he made himself treasuries for silver, and for gold, and for precious stones, and for spices, and for shields, and for all manner of pleasant jewels;
Imagine that here was another person who walked, ate, lived with Jesus and yet certainly he too was a great failure until he too had learned not to trust in self, but rather to reply on God always. .. the apostle Peter
