A Short Time With Larry 12-8-2020 Caesar Serves
Even the most wicked rulers end up having accomplished the will of God, though they insist no such Deity exists.
Caesar Augustus, "The Emperor" The human god of all he surveyed, issue a draconian order that all the world should be taxed, forcing those where thousands of miles from their birthplace to return.
From this ridiculous mandate, a carpenter and his very young wife with the child were forced to head for a tiny spot called Bethlehem. The wife rode a donkey while with a babe near birth.
The arrogant "Emperor" had no idea that he was being used by the true ruler of creation to accomplish his will concerning the redemption of a fallen race.
Luke 2:1-7 tells the story.
Self-styled "Emperors" in 2020 believe themselves to be the all in all. But the king's heart is in God's Hand!!
The Nativity account bears this out!
