A Standard is only as meaningful as its longevity. If a standard is always being altered and changed how then is it a standard at all? If everyone has a different standard, again there is No standard. For what is right to each individual is a mere image of ones own perspective. Therefore we MUST turn towards an “Eternal” everlasting Standard. One that does not sway by popular consent, or for an individuals ideals. No we must be willing to submit to the notion and the concept, and as for me the Truth, that a Higher Authority and that Higher Authority’s Standard is what we as humanity needs. Not only for the individuals own betterment but also for that as a moral compass as a society at large. A society or nation built upon Freedom and Liberty can only function and flourish for as a morally guided people.
Once the “Standard” becomes skewed how easy it then becomes to utterly do away with that “Old” Standard and impose a “new” lesser weakened standard. Case in point, America built upon the Judean/Christian Standard is now become a nation whose compass and moral direction is tossed about by every wind of doctrine and feel good mantra.
A Standard is being raised, the Righteous shall run to it, Stand for It, and promote It. (Zechariah 4:9-10)
Isaiah the Prophet declares this prophetic Word of The Lord in Is. 28:14-19 (16-17)NIV.
14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers
who rule this people in Jerusalem.
15 You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death,
with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
and falsehood our hiding place.”
16 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
will never be stricken with panic.
17 I will make justice the measuring line
and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
and water will overflow your hiding place.
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;
your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
you will be beaten down by it.
19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
morning after morning, by day and by night,
it will sweep through.”
The understanding of this message
will bring sheer terror.
A tested and True cornerstone has been laid in Zion; Christ Jesus The Lord, and that those who Trust in Him will never be dismayed. Justice must be the measuring line with which we must administer to all, and Righteousness the Plumb line to which we are established and built upon. He promises to sweep away the “lie” and the darkness of “hidden secret” false doctrines. Attached to a Plumb line is a device called a bob, a plumb bob, this bob gives a pin point accuracy.
Jesus Christ is The Standard He is The “Kingdom Bob” and we that follow after Him must be held to and live in right alignment with the “Kingdom Standard“.
