I am surely positive that if the people of the bible we read about had it all over to do again they would had listened to the prophets! In getting to know my Father, who is God, better it all makes so much more sense on why people have no clue on what is about to happen. People have turned their hearts from God just like we were told they would in the end days and they seek to have their ears tickled so that they feel better about their petty lives! Of course the living God wants to bless us and prosper us but does that mean it fits our wants or the will of the Father?
2 Timothy 4:1-4
1 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom:
2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,
4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.
So many people think that we have to have some big ministry and write self-help books on one little revelation people have claimed to have received from God in order to do anything for the Kingdom of Yahweh and this is so far from the truth! The ones who walked with Jesus were told not to worry about what they would eat or drink and to not take their money belts!
5 These twelve Jesus sent out after instructing them: “Do not go in the way of the Gentiles, and do not enter any city of the Samaritans;
6 but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
8 “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
9 “Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts,
10 or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support.
It is as simple as telling the man standing on the corner that Jesus loves him and Jesus died for him! The Kingdom of Heaven for most people seems to be light years away when in fact Jesus told us it is at hand and has been ever since Jesus’s ministry began! Jesus’s ministry is still going strong through the hearts of those who know the truth and through the ones who seek to tell others of Jesus. The evil has set out to distort the truth in many ways and people look to the world for the answers instead of the word of God and Lord Jesus! When the truth is spoken or written it makes those who are hiding from it deflect all things that challenge the truth in them! Most people just think that they can go back to their comfort zones of religion and that all things will be okay. Of course for those who have no idea about Jesus or what the world is really doing to them they are just as blind as the deer caught in the headlights! We all know what happens to deer that are caught in the headlights of a vehicle and it isn’t pretty. I have written so many blogs the past 15 months that have been set forth to help people and warn them of the evil that is coming! Of course what good does it do to tell people when they continue to just negotiate the very same evil in their lives daily! I will be the first to tell you that I am broken and I don’t deserve these warnings from God! The beauty of it all though is that I am allowing my faults to be laid out daily for my Lord Jesus so that He can take them to the Father and it builds a connection that no amount of evil can ever break. I love how Paul tells us who he is!
7 But if through my lie the truth of God abounded to His glory, why am I also still being judged as a sinner?
1 Timothy 1:15
15 It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all.
2 Corinthians 11:5
5 For I consider myself not in the least inferior to the most eminent apostles.
8 To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ,
So many people have been taught to conform to the teachings and doctrines of mankind all the while this has deceived them into separating themselves in their heart as if they are no longer a sinner. The closer Paul got to Jesus, the Son of God, the more Paul realizes that he was as sinner! This then allowed Jesus to lay this out before God and give Paul further Revelation for the benefit of the Kingdom of Yahweh! Why did Jesus constantly tell us it was not by His power He did things but rather it was the Father’s power doing it through Him?
1 Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion,
2 make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.
3 Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves;
4 do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
5 Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.
8 Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
9 For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,
10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
12 So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling;
13 for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.
I see so many people who allow the world to tell them who Jesus is instead of Jesus and His Apostles telling them who Jesus is! Look at verse 6 again! Then take the time to go truly study the words of my Lord Jesus and see that He constantly told us who He was and clearly stated who God is! This so important when seeking the heavenly order that Yahweh has set forth!
1 Corinthians 11:3
3 But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.
15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ,
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.
See the evil set its foot inside of the true church long ago and caused division so that the masses would be misinformed of the truth. Why do you think the Catholic Church kept the bible secret for so many years? The bishops would only tell people what it was that they wanted people to hear and they held the truth in unrighteousness which is still being done till this day! Jesus died so that we could believe in Him and tell the world this!
1 John 4:15
15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1 John 5:5
5 Who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
1 John 5:9
9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony ofGod is greater; for the testimony of God is this, that He has testified concerning His Son.
1 John 5:10
10 The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed in the testimony that God has given concerning His Son.
Not once does it say we confess that Jesus is God, we confess that Jesus is the true Christ, the Son of God! Jesus constantly taught His disciples the truth and He continues to teach any who will give Him their full heart and attention! Jesus is the one to follow not some religious sect, or the latest cool preacher of the day. I am constantly witnessing people put Jesus before the Father and Jesus never taught this!
44 “How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and you do not seek the glory that is from the one and only God?
Words of my Lord Jesus! Are you truly ready to die for the Son of God to prove yourself worthy to the one and only living God? Jesus had to go to the cross alone and it was His Faith in the Father that brought Him through it all! Time is short and the only thing that will save you is your Faith! Not one person you know can save you when this test reaches full capacity. It will only be the depth of your Faith in the Father through His Christ Jesus that will truly save you! I recommend that you quit ignoring the warnings! Quit going past the word of God to rush through it as if you are doing God some favor for glancing at His word! Jesus is coming for His bride and so many will be left because they care more for the world than they do the truth! So many are scared to even open their hearts to the truth because that means they still have to face the skeletons in their closets as well and that is the last thing people want to do. My prayer is that the body of Christ truly wakes up now, but then again I guess the test will reveal who is truly part of the body of Christ! May Yahweh Bless you and His Christ guide your steps in the days ahead!
