If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do? Psalms 11:3
The new creation has taken refuge in the name of the Lord Most High! He is found in Christ; He lives under the banner of the kingdom and Lordship of Jesus Christ. It is against this backdrop that we ought to explore the framework of this rhetorical question:
Can the foundations of the righteous be destroyed?
The righteous man is the man founded in Christ. He is placed on no other foundation but that already laid- Jesus Christ! This foundation cannot be assailed; it cannot be removed….it is the ground in which the new creation is firmly rooted and planted….immovable and unshakable! Selah.
Can this foundation be destroyed?
Not for the man in Christ! Perhaps for the righteous man like David, under the mosaic covenant, the threat of the foundation being destroyed was a real possibility. But today, let us thank God for the dispensation of Grace in Christ that has deluged our world. Glory to God!
Can the foundation upon which the new creation stands be destroyed?
Can Christ be destroyed?
I believe the question only bears the marks of a rhetorical inquiry.
The righteous man in Christ has his feet planted and rooted deep upon the certainty who is Jesus Christ. Glory to God!
For He has said “I will never leave you or forsake you”…..He has said “I will be with you always even unto the end of the ages”…Herein is revealed the certainty and pledge of the King of Kings to those who are His. For no matter the storms that are conjured up, no matter the bleakness of the darkness attacking, no matter the inappropriateness of the sin stumbled into….there is the guarantee that remains…I will never leave you nor forsake you!
