Let us muse again today from Matt 14:5 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our study today we are taught on the subject of fleshly restraint. Herod is restrained from dealing with John because the majority of the people believe him to be a prophet of God. Let me assure us today spiritual restraint brought on by fleshly feelings of what others think and not the power of God will not restrain long. Let the peace of God which is the Holy Ghost, rule, word for umpire, in our hearts today.
