I Belong to ????? I find that many people think they have a right to live their life the way they so desire. At the same time, they feel that don’t have to answer to anyone. I want to investigate the scriptures and see what God has said about this subject in His Word. Understand that IF HE is the Creator, and the sole source of authority in the UNIVERSE, that His comments are the final word on the subject. For he is the ruler of ALL THINGS!!

Joh 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 ¶ And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. Mt. 19: 3-9*

Ac 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; Ac 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
Judgment is Coming Eccl. 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. 13 ¶ Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. 2Pe 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Job 14:5 Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; Job 7:1 Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling? Pr 8:29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Conclusion God is our Eternal Creator, and thus all things are His. He has set the order of all things, their bounds and their activities. Thus, God has ordered our lives to be established by His will. All Creation act according to His purpose, His design, and act accordingly. We are to be judged according to our actions, and how we followed His Will. No one will escape His determinations. His Word is final. Men of old understand this fact.
