Because they did exactly what you called them in order to get to the top....they cut a lot of throats. Their reward will be limited and they will have a long, hard fall for doing so. Don't ever be envious of that.
Styles, I was going to quote this particular scripture to you yesterday, but it seems you already a step ahead of me. This is so very true; keep on going into the sanctuary and keep on asking God to be your strength and refuge.
And don't ever forget......a break through is on the other side of a break down. Don't ever give up on God.
