Testing and trying the hearts and minds of men:
What God is this?
Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Deut 6:14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you;
Psalm 81:9 You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not bow down to an alien god.
Jeremiah 7:9 "'Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known,
Exodus 15:11 "Who among the gods is like you, O LORD? Who is like you--majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?
God does not tolerate rivals. The LORD takes revenge. The LORD takes revenge and is full of anger. The LORD takes revenge against his enemies and holds a grudge against his foes. [Nahum 1:2]
Deuteronomy 32:41 when I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand grasps it in judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries and repay those who hate me.
Jeremiah 28:8 From early times the prophets who preceded you and me have prophesied war, disaster and plague against many countries and great kingdoms.
I don’t know who you found to worship?
I pray it’s the true living God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel ... the God that gave His only begotten Son; Jesus* Christ to die on the cross for whosoever will come into Salvation ... through His precious Holy Shed Blood; is welcome ... so says John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ has provided:
Luke 2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD”
and let the dead bury their dead.
Matthew 8 19And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. 20And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. 21And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.
22But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. 23And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him.
Who are the dead?
The dead to Christ will always be... They are those that He knows not.
Luke 13:27 But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
How can a dead man bury a dead man?
Dead to Christ = Unsaved = `the living walking dead men. the walking dead. . dead man walking .
as we walk the earth.... Unsaved we are all walking dead men.... yet God knows who will turn and come to Him .... Jesus calls to us as He called to His disciples. Jesus calls to all of us so none will say unfair...we know not all come and Jesus knows who will come and who will never come to walk in the saving grace of Jesus Christ.
Hence let the walking dead men bury the dead. Their both dead. ... going to a dead place called hell.
Hell is the dead place of the dead to Christ.
Saved: through Soul Salvation we are grafted in to the olive tree. The olive tree is a symbol of Israel .... we through soul salvation are branches grafted into the tree. Jesus is the root of the tree.
Revelation 22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
Jeremiah 11:16 The LORD called you a thriving olive tree with fruit beautiful in form. But with the roar of a mighty storm he will set it on fire, and its branches will be broken.
John 15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.
JESUS PRUNES OUR BRANCHES
John 15:2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
Romans 11:24 After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!
Jesus* said go make disciples of all men.... filled with Holy Spirit led by the Spirit of God you do become your own tree in the Lord [yes you are grafted into the body to the all of Gods elect but ... you are in a sense your own tree that bears good fruit or bad]
BORN AGAIN INTO A NEW FAMILY.
WE ARE OF A NEW FAMILY....
HALLELUJAH WE SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE...
WE ARE OF THE SAME SPIRIT OF THE TRUE LIVING GOD...
Grafted into the olive tree. Soul salvation was offered [first] to the Jews. Jesus was born of the Jewish descent... he walked amongst the Jews in the synagogues and taught the Jews first. The Jews are a symbol of the olive tree. They rejected Jesus hence the Gentiles offered salvation [secondly] ... are grafted into the olive tree of the Jews via soul salvation. Yet we the gentiles saved do not become Jews.... because ... There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. We are not even male and female. we then have no race. we are all Gods children... He calls us His Bride, His Church.... and the Jews are not forsaken for the word of God tells us all of Israel will be saved.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
------Please be urged to look into the olive tree teaching for yourself... to better understand it... I m striving as you are in the study of the Lords word to us. Amen -------
Jesus* is the Son of the
True Living God.
Our God is a three in one God.
God in Three persons
This in yellow from J.V.I. research: The Bible teaches:
1). YAHWEH THE FATHER ALWAYS EXISTED.
Deuteronomy 33:27 The Eternal God is thy refuge,
and underneath are the Everlasting arms: and he shall
thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them....
2 .LORD JESUS CHRIST second member of the Trinity… ALWAYS EXISTED.
HE’S from OLD from EVERLASTING. The one that was to be born in Bethlehem.
Micah 5:2 2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the
thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in
Israel; whose goings forth have been From of Old, from Everlasting.
3) THE HOLY SPIRIT
ALWAYS EXISTED FROM ALL ETERNITY
Hebrews 9:14 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ,
who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,
purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
1) GOD THE FATHER
2) JESUS THE SON
3) AND THE HOLY SPIRIT – Always Existed.
Through Soul Salvation ...
The Holy Spirit third member of the Holy Trinity moves in... enters into your body your vessel and its then the Temple of the Holy Spirit .... of the True Living God....
1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Corinthians 3:16 Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you?
Romans 14:7 For none of us lives to himself alone
and none of us dies to himself alone.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live,
but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body,
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
-But the temple Jesus* had spoken of was His body.
John 2: 19 Jesus answered and said unto them,
Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building,and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of the temple of his body.
22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
Just as Jesus body was the Temple of the Holy Spirit
likewise so are we when we follow Him having claimed Him as Lord of all .... - we are born again - He is our Savior ... We are transformed from darkness that was void of the Holy Spirit into light- filled with the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah for that and thank you Jesus* for you are the Pearl of Great Price... at Great Cost do we enter into Salvation... Thank You Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Our body is then the Temple of the Holy Spirit.
This is the interesting part...
You can be saved anywhere anytime...God providing your not out of time? All you need is a sincere willing heart and Jesus will hear you He will respond and enter in ... Hence you will be saved... Hallelujah! Thank You Jesus*
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
We need a sincere heart to truly be saved. .... less we imagine we are saved = the mental ascent. Then its all memorization, acting lessons and hide the wolf suit in the closet... We need a sincere heart to be truly saved.
Hebrews 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Ezekiel 36:25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols.
Titus 3:5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth
Hebrews 9:14 How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God! and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
We live on this side of the cross but we look back to before the cross ... to the Old Testament to find our roots... to come to know our God .... and to understand Abraham was to be the father of many nations, you the gentile saved fulfills that promise to Abraham hence you are grafted in to the olive tree.
Malachi 2:10 “Have we not all one Father? Did not one God create us? Why do we profane the covenant of our fathers by breaking faith with one another?”
Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
..... Saved we claim the same Heavenly Father...
John 14: 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
. 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.
29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
I don’t know about you... but for me in the body of Jesus Christ my SaviorI enjoy knowing my roots in God Almighty the True living God in three persons.
Grafted into ... so are the blessings of the Jews upon me... im one of Gods elect.. I too am the apple of His eye. Through Jesus Saving Grace we are adopted....
Romans 8:23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies
.Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Psalm 17:8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, Apple of Gods eye... I believe this to mean God keeps watch on His elect... His own
His blood bought children. He is a Father to us... a parent He is raising us up and watching over us.
He chastens after His own...
Hebrews 12:8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Romans 9:30 What then shall we say? That the Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have obtained it, a righteousness that is by faith;
GENTILES HAVE OBTAINED RIGHTEOUSNESS NOT BY THE LAW BUT THROUGH JESUS...THE SON OF THE TRUE LIVING GOD.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. We are not even male and female. we then have no race. we are all Gods children... He calls us His Bride, His Church.... and the Jews are not forsaken for the word of God tells us all of Israel will be saved.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written,
SAVED WE CAN SAY WE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN THE FAMILY OF GOD.
Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile--the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him,
Colossians 3:11 Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
1 Corinthians 12:13 For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free--and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
....and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Hebrews 3:6 But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.
Jesus tells us He and the Father are one but that the Father is greater than He [Jesus ] is.Jesus follows the commandments of the Father. Even still Jesus makes the claim to be equal with the Father.... saying if you saw me you saw the Father and I am in the Father, and the Father in me?
Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
We have access to both Jesus the Son and the Heavenly Father through the Holy Spirit. The Father sends the Holy Spirit in Jesus name to us. [John 14: 26]
-through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit [Ephesians 2:18 ] -but Christ lives in me
The Spirit of truth; will dwell in us... Jesus is the truth... God is the Truth ... God cannot lie.
The Holy Spirit is His own entity yet is a part of the Father and a part of the SonIn the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. ......And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. . And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And each time God said.... it was the power of the Holy Spirit that made it happen.
2 Peter 1:21 For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
The HOLY SPIRIT IS THE POWER OF GOD.... its Him that makes it happen when God speaks... for example
Recall Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane... Judas brought a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them,...... I am he.............And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. 6 As soon then as he had said unto them,...... I am he........,
they went backward, and fell to the ground.
- I love that part... What power in His word... He simply said...
I am he
Hallelujah with a word men fell backward to the ground.... that is the power of the Holy Spirit. We can know in Rev 19 the sword in the mouth of Jesus that will cut down men is His word... He will speak and men will go to their graves.
Rev 19: 15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
The Third member of the Holy Trinity is the breath of God the power of God the He is the Spirit of the Lord Jesus and the Spirit of God He is the Holy Spirit a being all His own and yet He is entwined to the Father and the Son .... further supporting the God head is three separate entities yet one God.
THE POWERFUL HOLY SPIRIT THAT RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD WILL ALSO QUICKEN OUR BODIES AND RAISE US UP ON THAT DAY TO EVER BE WITH OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST...
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
Saved we have all of the fullness of the Godhead in us...we were all given the one Spirit to drink. Its why greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.
Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit
We know the Spirit at times is referred to as Christ in us. Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.
SAVED WE ARE THE BUILDING OF CHRIST ... WE BUILD ALONG WITH HIM
Mark 13:1 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! [A FUTURE VISION OF RAPTURE OF THE BRIDE]
OUR TEMPLES SHOULD BE RADIANT AND SHINE OF MANY MANNER OF PRECIOUS STONES TO ONE DAY BRING GLORY AND HONOR TO GOD... FROM THE MOMENT OF OUR BETROTHAL TO JESUS VIA SALVATION WE COMMITTED OURSELVES TO HIM... ITS FROM THAT MOMENT ONWARD THAT OUR GOOD WORKS COUNT FOR RIGHTEOUSNESSES IN JESUS *
and are composed in our spiritual buildings.... of our Holy Temple... its another reason Jesus said store not your treasures on earth where thieves can rob or moth and rust can destroy.
IICOR. 5:10 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. WORKS GOOD OR BAD.
I COR :315 15 If any man's *Work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. LOSS OF REWARDS... but fire saved..8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 3 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
We build along with Christ the master builder... He lays the foundation of Salvation that we are to build upon .... we must take heed not to build our temple out of wood hay and stubble those are burnable works with no good merit to Jesus... but if we build our temple using gold, silver, and all manner of precious stones then he shall have good merit to Jesus and bring Him great joy at the sight of you on judgment day... Because it will show ...you fought the good fight and ran the race for Him.
Our hope in Christ is to one Day hear Him say to us.... WELL DONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT... as appose to ...you slothful servant or I never knew you...
A death bed salvation or like the thief on the cross at deaths door just then . at the last moment... coming into the fold of Jesus one has not much to offer the Lord but that person made it into the kingdom of Heaven .... Hallelujah .... this is a picture of much wood hay and stubble to be burned as appose to those that may have had years of service in the Lord Jesus ... those indeed will be expected to have built upon their foundation with better materials.
Out of the gate we need to Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. [2 Timothy 2:15]
Recall knowledge doesn’t save anybody.... but saved the word is vital to our spiritual growth in Jesus* ...
A note here for those that think as I once did .....that blasphemy of the Holy Spirit
was using the Spirits name in vain as we are accustomed to hearing our Lord Jesus name in vain..
That’s not it.
What it does mean
is that if one neglects the call of the Holy Spirit
because its Him... the Holy Spirit that does the tap- tap
on our hearts door
offering Jesus* Soul Salvation to us.
Its that we rejected Him... from ourselves... we rejected Him when
we turned our back, when we said no I don’t want to know the Bible
and its teachings, no I don’t want to believe in Jesus* ,,, no I don’t want
any part of Jesus saving grace....
We only get so many calls to come to Jesus*
then one day the spirit gives up....
and there are no more calls to come.
The word tells us God gives men over
to the false delusion their hearts desire.
we did not get saved...
we did not get filled with the Holy Spirit.
Finally Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit
we are unsaved...
void of the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 3:22 But the Scripture declares that the whole world is a prisoner of sin, so that what was promised, being given through faith in Jesus Christ, might be given to those who believe.
As sinners we need a Savior
Thank You Jesus for your great sacrifice for us.
If you want what is freely being offered to you... by the Lord Jesus then take it.
There are many gods of this world
1 Corinthians 8:5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,
It is written satan is the god of this world:
2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
In part due to the fallen angels which are now demons there are many gods of this world. ... men will worship anything and everything including themselves.... there is no way of actually counting and knowing in full the gods of this world for even men declare they are a god... who can count all the gods and idols of man that are worshipped as a god. Over all the gods satan is given the position of the god of this world.
If you want the True Living God forsaking all other gods of this world
then come to Jesus .... confess... repent of your sins. ask Him [Jesus*] to come into your heart as your Lord and Savior.
When your heart is sincere you will be saved. .... but you must of your own freewill and sincere heart take a step towards God asking ... admit .. repent ...ask.
If you think you were born saved STOP.... THOSE THAT IMAGINE THIS TO BE TRUE...
If you think you were born saved ..and need not take these measures towards your soul salvation ... you carry on in your life as if you were born saved never having confessed of your sins ..never having repented never having asked of Jesus to forgive you and to come into your heart as Lord and Savior...
Then you are walking around in THAT DANGEROUS PLACE OF PRIDE... Its pride that makes a man think he was born saved and it’s a done deal dude... good to go.. like jeronamoe.
If you think you were born saved
You do not know Jesus ..
if you imagine you don’t need to come to Jesus
After all He did for us...something is wrong.
Say you do not come to Jesus
with tongue and voice...you do not come to Jesus
with the mouth, mind and the heart
that He gave ....you
You don’t need.to confess and to ask of Jesus ????
... if you cant humble yourself to come to Jesus* ....
then your all book knowledge and Christian flare and wolves
in sheep clothing leading others into the pit of hell.
Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:Whats the word of God tell us to do?
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
---- see Jesus does not ask for much--- but if a man cant even give Him that much humility of heart to confess sincerely wanting and asking Jesus in as Savior.... after Jesus whom was Holy ....took the lashes and the beatings and the sufferings of shame and humiliation and the death on the cross for us... and we cant find our tongue or heart ... to confess and ask... that’s not humility or sincerity on our part.
It lacks heart.
Its pride and God hates pride ....you know that is why Lucifer was ousted from his high position in heaven to the reward of a low place in hell... pride is ugly to God...
If you have that particular pride of ... to prideful to repent because your so special amongst men on earth you were born saved.... Oh please see it in yourself and repent... come to Jesus for real and get saved...
Wake up its more like a special place in hell is waiting for you.
Repent and get saved... then all that knowledge you have will suddenly be a stepping stone in your faith walk in Jesus .. it will be a use to your spiritual journey in Jesus*... but until you know Jesus as Savior ... you’re an actor... what does Hollywood give a good actor... so sad for you.
Wake up and turn it around today... do it... the right way.. you know hell is before you... I don’t think your that off track are you? You must know you’re a wolf... regardless... you need to rethink your course. How many souls will you be responsible for .... FOR SLIPPING INTO HELL BECAUSE OF YOU! How sad.... none of us wants to be responsible for others going into the pit of hell... Your punishment will be greater if you know what your doing....leading men to the pit on a lie.
I pray this is a wake up call to you.
One more time..... say you saw a choice piece of property and wanted to buy it and call it your own. Now some men approach you and say that piece of property is yours .. it was yours from the moment you were born.... go build upon that land.
the day you try to build on it ... you will have a rude awakening
....You cant just imagine its yours.... no matter what some wolf tells you to be true.. you should investigate the matter and this time bring your heart .
Likewise you just can't imagine the Kingdom of Heaven is yours.
....you need a heart to buy that land.
Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
If salvation is free to us why did Jesus say buy of me? you and I need to ((((ASK)))).... of a sincere heart!
Jesus reads hearts He knows whats in our hearts.... He knows lip service
Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Men can use their mouth to talk to people all the day long and talk and talk and talk and talk some more but when it comes to Jesus* they seem to have lost: their gumption, their tongue and their voice... nothing for Jesus... Do we suppose Jesus is to simply read our minds?.... while we will put our best foot forward and our best thoughts articulated to men that men on earth might think well of us and even more highly of us... While Jesus is left to be a mind reader.
While Jesus is left???
That is selfish and prideful.
Jesus is the door.
and you will receive
you will enter in.
We are not to think too highly of ourselves inside the body of Christ....
Romans 12: 3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Likewise we need to know whos we are.... and what we are in the body of Christ.
Lets strive to pull one another up in the body and not down.... that the true living God in three persons be Glorified through our Salvation in Jesus* Lets strive to pull one another up in the body of Christ....growing in our walk of faith striving, pressing in for more of Jesus through faith believing in the power of the word of God and power of prayer...
Prayer is what the devil does not want us to do... we grow faster through it and do more damage to the enemy in it. HALLELUJAH OUR VICTORY IS IN JESUS*!!!!! PRAISE AND THANK YOU JESUS!
1 Thessalonians 4 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words. Jesus is coming sooner than we think.... be prepared, look up expecting.
Rejoice and be counted worthy ... to escape all these things that are to come upon the
The majority of us only get one chance at this life before death takes us into eternity... all the truth of the True Living God is presented to the world regardless if its welcome or received. Still it is... one day a time for each man to decide will have come and gone.
If you are walking with Jesus in a lie... that you appease men on earth and not the True Living God..then its time to repent for real ...bring your heart to the Lord filled with sincerity...
Do you want to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior?
Start fresh... get Saved.... be born again... cleansed by the washing of the water of the word... of the true living God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob the God of Israel who gave His only begotten Son Jesus Christ whom was born of a virgin and died on the cross for the sins of the world that whosoever [thats you]..... might believe in Him will be saved... [see John 3:16].
Jesus Blessings to you...
The men on earth that your striving to live up to their expectations ... to do their will, to please them... those men whose honor you desire, whose praise you relish in, those men that flatter you and pat your back and blow your horn... those men that do not know Jesus* as Lord and Savior.... Those dead men are what you are hungering for and chasing after..... let the dead burry the dead.
Let those who hunger for life without end turn now and come to the Living God... now... Jesus* Saves
Jesus* is very much ALIVE... He is calling you out from amongst them... wont you choose life ?..your own.
You need to consider and care for your poor souls eternity?
No man can save you.
Only Jesus* cares enough for you ...so much so ... that He
died for you.
