Distractions from worshipping the Lord;
IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH!
In these end times, I see an overwhelming hurdle for the living church of Jesus Christ; we have become complaisant in serving our Lord! Are we not as the Laodiceans; lukewarm in our outreach in bring this gospel to all nations as well as our own neighborhoods?
We find it so convenient to fill our time with all of life’s cares and necessities that we end up being the seed that is getting choked out by the cares of the world! You see in that parable Jesus told about the seed there were four seed sown and only one grew up to bring forth fruit; that is only 25% that was sown, that will make it to harvest time!
The dragon in Revelations brought a third of the stars with him; so if God made heaven and earth perfect as He always does, before sin enters the scene, and as Jesus said in scripture that when we go to be in heaven we will be as the angels (Mt.22:29-30); this shows us how many angels fell from grace and their first love; as well as how many angels our Lord needs to complete heaven and make it perfect for the future just as it was at the beginning; the New Heavens and the New Earth and the New Jerusalem coming down from the Father of lights! So it stands to reason that the whole gentile nation who is grafted into the vine will equal 25% of these new angels but we still need to make up roughly 8% more to equal 1/3 or 33.33% which would be the 144,000 from the tribes of Israel the remnant!
The Lord has been laying heavily on my heart lately these verses, and all of them none of the preachers want to talk about: Because if they do they will offend half of their congregations and we all know they don’t want to do that, being in these last days we have congregations who have twitching ears! They like their Sunday sermons where everything is up lifting as a Joel Osteen so called sermon and I use that loosely. Seems all they want any more is a motivational speaker, some good music, a few praise the Lord’s and pat them on the back and have this stay, pray, and obey mentality forevermore and send you straight to Hell policy, while they take your money to pay for their mansions! The Children of our Lord know how to spend their tithing, as Jesus who said when we do this to the least of these you do it unto me; which James knew all too well, Jms.1:27Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. Is that not what we are to have is a pure heart? 2 Tm.2:19Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let everyone that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work. 22Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Mt.5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. The very last commandment Jesus gave us out of the Beatitudes, we had better know, how to get this done, in His eyes not man’s, Ro.3:4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. You see it does’ matter if we preach well, and speak all that is holy and truthful, which is gospel according to the very last syllable of each and every word of God and walk as they do in the world, we will be found a liar, for our unrighteousness will be accounted against us and we will be proves a liar and a hypocrite! Just as Jesus said in Mt.23 the hypocrite chapter in verse three:3All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. Just as Paul was talking about earlier in Romans chapter three: 4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 5But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) 6God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world? 7For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? You see here is the secret which is not so much a secret but a missed opportunity; we can have the perfect philosophical, moral, ethical, and the best theological understandings: But if we do not know how to engage our faith in practice we will fail most miserably! We can believe all day long as James said, Jm.2:19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. You see no one even trembles about God anymore but they will when it will be too late; after He shuts the door on the five virgins: Which will be two thirds of the world that will be lost at His coming! You see we can believe all we want, just as the devils and even Satan himself knows his time is about up; but it takes more than knowing and believing: Jesus said *If* you love Me keep My Commandments! This means we need to take action and a definite decision must be made at the word If, it commands a choice in what we must do! Are we going to do as our Lord said or are we going to continue with our own will and continue on down that road of sin? The “If” means in this case, prove it! Not my word His; I refer you to scripture not my words but His: Rv.22:10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
We must be bold in the Lord’s Truths,
Simple humble servants in obedience to His every word!
All true Christians are first called to be Christ like and deny the flesh, pick up our crosses and follow after our Lord and Saviour; as seen in Jn.15:1-16Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17These things I command you, that ye love one another. 18If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 19If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 21But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 22If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 23He that hateth me hateth my Father also. 24If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 25But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause. 26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth (Jn.1:17), which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: 27And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.
Just as St. John wrote later in his Epistles to the church 1 Jn.5:19And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness: Because the world does not know the true God which is seen in the very next verse! 20And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true (Jn.1:17 see also Jn.4:24), and we are in him that is true (Jn.14:14-18), even in his Son Jesus Christ: This is the true God, and eternal life!
Jesus warned us in a parable; about the servants who knew what their master wanted them to do when they went into the wedding feast; they were to put on robes, which are the wedding garments! Many people do not know how to put on their wedding garments! Many preach that when Jesus comes we will be changed in a twinkling of an eye into His likeness! This is true but it is all about timing, if we read 1 Jn.2:1My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
Here lays a big secret staring us in the face; we need to be Christ like before He comes and we will be as He is, walking in His truths or in His Commandments, this is being in the will of God! Jn.14:6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Jesus showed us the way, He showed us the truth, and He showed us His life in which He walked! This must be done by us If we are to be as He is (see Lk.6:46)! This is exactly what St. John said in the first verse, we must not sin; this is exactly what Jesus said in Mt.5:48 when He sealed up the beatitudes and again in the last chapter in our Holy Bibles, as I read Rv.22:11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. 12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14Blessed are they that do his commandments; that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
You see it takes every word of God to come to Him and be in spirit and in truth; not just the ones we care to do or those we like to do; it takes all scripture to come to God His way, not man’s way by vain tradition or rituals! It takes all scripture in compliance to His written word in complete obedience! Jesus said if I had not come and spoke unto them they would not have had sin; and also in the following verses He said if I had not come and done what no man had ever done before; they would not have sinned! But being He spoke His word and He worked His miracles and lived His parables and prophetic discourses out in front of all to see and hear, man, you and I are without excuse! We have been given fare warning! He’s coming for His church who are His elect who have made themselves perfect, without spot, and without wrinkle just like the scriptures warned us to be; Blameless! Eph.5:27That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Perfecting of the Saints
This is what I’m now going to try and do; we have been taught by so many so called preachers that no one can be perfect. Am I right? Sure I am; I have heard this since I was a child, so many people keep saying no man can be perfect! True they are; because they have no faith, Lk.18: 7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
He will if He finds us working in His fields of labor and keeping His words of Truth alive in our hearts and before our minds, but this can only be done if we have been truly born-again of the truth of His word as His Apostles gave to us; for they indeed were given the keys to heaven and a more sure prophecy as spoken by Peter in 2 Pt.1:19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. And there is only one interpreter of His word and that is the Spirit who had it written: 1 Pt.1:10Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: 11Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Which is the Holy Spirit as seen in 2 Pt.1:21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. And unless we know that Jesus is the Holy Spirit who is God manifested in the flesh; which is the mystery of Godliness as shown in 1 Tm.3:16And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. This is in fact our God with us as taught to us in scripture, Mt.1:23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
If we do not get to the point where we put Him and His word first in our life or we shall have no hope for being with Him in the future! God’s grace is for His children who have made themselves ready for His coming, and have in fact overcome this world of manmade doctrines! The only ones who had any right at all to set doctrine are those to who it was given and that was to the Apostles and St. John sealed that up the Holy Bible in, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ to John!”Let us look now to, 2 Tm.3:12Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. A lot of preachers preach we are saved by faith and grace alone, which is not true! We are saved by one thing only and that is in obedience to every word out of the mouth of God, Mt.4:4; Jesus said to us that He is the bread that came down to us from heaven, but we are not to have eternal life by bread alone: Jn.6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. If we have not the One Lord and the One Faith and the One Baptism that is of the Lord, for His repentance for us, we have not salvation; I refer you to Ac.11:18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying,* Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life*. We must have His repentance given to us by His indwelling Holy Spirit in us, just as Cornelius who in fact was the first gentile convert, who was saved by preaching the word of God by Peter, which we are saved, (see 1 Cor.6:11); Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. You see here that if we have been born-again of water and of the Holy Spirit this is that One Baptism Paul was referring to in Ephesus chapter 4! We are saved by God’s grace His favour that He has shown us the operations in which we must be saved; this is that threefold cord which is not easily broken; 1st. Repentance, and then, 2nd. be ye everyone of you baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin; 3rd. and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor.6:11 which is justification! The Lord’s Repentance & Remission for you!)! We must seek the gift of the Holy Spirit for so many preachers preach it is automatic at baptism in the water and it is not always! Sometimes yes but not always! Look to scripture not me, the word of God will show us all, that just because you got baptized in Jesus’ name does not mean you will get the baptism of the Holy Spirit immediately or at the same time! Sometimes you do and sometimes you don’t! Ac.8:14Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John: 15Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost: 16(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) 17Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost. The Lord knows who are His and when their hearts are right He will pour out His Spirit when He gives them His repentance or forgiveness, if they seek they shall find (Mt.7:7-8): but it has got to be in His Righteousness; Mt.6:33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. With a broken and contrite spirit, one born of grief, of past sins, in remorse to what we did in the sight of His Holy presence! We must have a willing heart to go and sin no more; just as our Lord showed us in scripture: Jn.8:11She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. If not you will be like this man: Mt.12:43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. Which Jesus warned even this man: Jn.5:14Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee. These are those who receive the word right off and have no depth because they did not continue to grow in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ as Peter warned us in 2 Pt.3:17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. Now for the last example; Is.28:9Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 12To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. These are they that have received the word and have not put it to practice and grown to full maturity by the knowledge of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues as shown even in the Old Testament; was to be the sign of His Holy Spirit in us; This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear it: sounds like preachers today saying we don’t need to speak in other tongues to be saved (1 Cor.14:39)! Ac.2:1-4 All that were in the upper room, all 120 of them, were all filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost and it sat on each of them and they all spoke as the Spirit gave them the utterance! This is the evidence shown at the council of elders in Jerusalem in Ac.11:16Then remembered I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost. 17Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God? 18When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. If we do not receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit; just like the Apostles, we don’t have it yet still! If any preacher says we don’t need to speak in tongues, well, he is not your friend but maybe a fiend a friend with a piece of God’s nature in them missing, is a fiend; just like a missing R in friend! Jn.3:3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Looks to me that one missing R could quit well stand for remission of sin or regeneration being born-again or remission which means the power to go and sin no more, when something goes into remission it stops what it was doing doesn’t it; this is true Repentance? And last but well not least maybe just maybe the R stands for Resurrection and without that R your feet are not leaving the ground at the catching away is it?
You see right here that the Samaritans did not receive the Holy Spirit at baptism; the Lord waited to have the Apostle Peter and the Apostle John to come up to lay hands on them to receive His Spirit in them in order for them to join the one true church of Jesus Christ; because it was to take an action from an Apostle who had the keys to heaven; to bring in the Samaritans due to the hatred of the Jews against the Samaritans and Gentiles and because of Jesus’ prayer to the Father; Jn.17:20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. Because Jesus is One with the Father and the Father is One with Jesus, Jn.10:30! When you have seen Jesus you have seen the One who sent Him, Jn.12:45! God said He would not give His glory to another as we see in Is.42:8I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images (Who do the Catholics worship: Graven images!?). Is.48:11For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? And I will not give my glory unto another (Who do the Catholics say to pray to? Mary, Peter, or one of the martyrs or one of the other many saints that have gone on to be with their Lord: The Bible says not to seek the dead for the living; does it not? Who are you going to, listen to the Word of God or man?). The Apostle Paul knew exactly who was The Christ, who was both Lord and Christ as seen in Acts2:36 and 10:36 who is Lord of All because He is the Glory of God seen in the face of Jesus, and if the rulers of old had not been blinded so that all prophecy could be fulfilled they would not have crucified the Lord of all Glory! 1 Cor.2:8Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. You know we are to test the people who say they are of God; we are to test them against what? Nothing will work but the Word of God! This is the infallible Word of God and if a prophets words to not come true he is what? A false prophet! Now if a preacher preaches the word of God correctly it will never contradict another scripture! Just as God cannot lie, as told to us in His scriptures and I will only use a couple to prove this statement: Tit.1:2In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; and Heb.6:17Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 18That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: And we all know from scripture that God changes not, Num.23:19; Mal.3:6 and that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever more, Heb.13:8! So when Jesus told us to never call anyone Father, for we have One Father which is in Heaven, Mt.23:8But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. The pope is Latin for papa or Father so who is a false preacher who tells the general population to call them father and to worship them as though they are the vicar of God on earth? This is that which the Lord Jesus hates, the Nicolaitans; which was suggested to us by Paul in Ephesus in Ac.20:28Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. 29For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. 32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. These Nicolaitans are they which built the wall of separation that our Lord Jesus destroyed when He had the vail torn in two pieces from the top down representing the priesthood of the apostate Israelites priests who disgraced the covenant of God and man with their own putrid actions of a cruel heart and lust for the wealth of the nation as seen here in Lk.16:14Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. I mean how many indulgences you have to sell before you are the richest church in the world? I guess we know who to go and ask! Niko means to conquer, to overthrow, and Laos means the people or laity! Jesus tore that vail that separated the holy of holies from being seen or in front of the ark of the covenant, meaning He ripped all priestly orders out of the way for all people to receive mercy, which is provided for us by God’s grace which is His words of truth for all to believe and worship Him in Spirit of Truth or in Truth of His given Word: Ac.20:32And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. 33I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. We are to bring this word of God which He gave us to bring to you freely, without charge! Just as Apostle Paul did! We are to abide in Jesus’ word and that of His Ordained Apostles as seen in scripture, Jn.15:20Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. We see in the first Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ; that the Apostles told the laity or the congregation to pick among them, which would serve them their food and distribute the rations to the widows! The people are to have the rule over themselves, not the clergy, bishops, or cardinals! They established a priesthood more vile than that of the Hebrews! If Jesus took it away from His own people; He meant it to be that way forever! He alone is to rule over His house, not man! This is not only a violation of the doctrine of God’s grace but the Spirit of His grace as well! I will bring an article that will show the difference between the two later! God’s grace is favour to His who are in His will, not for them of disobedience! For even their prayer which is supposed to go up to heaven to be built up for an alter of remembrance for them who are sanctified unto our Lord, just as Cornelius did in Ac.10:1-48
If we are ashamed of Him or His word; we will be none of His!
Lk.9:26For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels. Now will I begin to show you the way to Heaven according to His word and unless we have the mind of Christ, which is His Holy Spirit teaching us all truths, as He said; we don’t have access to all His scriptures when we need them; as seen here! Jer.31:31Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. These are those who will be taught of God; Jn.6:45It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. This is what was meant in Is.28:9-13 11For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people. He will give us a little here and a little there and He will place them in the correct order for us to realize what exactly it is that is His will for us and how it is that He wants us to do our jobs for Him! He is our Lord and Saviour the Holy One of Jacob, Is.49:26 which is our salvation by which we all shall either be redeemed or forsaken; would not that be a shame? Well some think a shame is not that big a deal because they do not know our Lord the way they should; as we see in this next verse: Dan.12:1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book. 2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Now look out I’m about to step on a lot of toes, especially if you’re a woman; 1 Cor.11:4Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head (For this reason we take off our hates for Church and for a man’s court of law and if you don’t the judge will remind you!). 5But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. (The woman’s hair is her covering which the angels look into; which is submission to their God!) 7For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. This hair thing is a Holiness issue and if man has long hair on him who is being effeminate; the Lord says that is a shame to him also! Just as women wearing men’s clothing with a crouch in them for this is confusion, which is an abomination, which is just as bad as a sin, and all sin is death to the sinner! All because we did not submit to His Word not mine but His word which is His will for us who are to be His ELECT, why? Because we put His will and His happiness which will in turn be our rewards in heaven and by His grace which is His favour to His children who submit not to me and what I say but to His every word by which we will be judged, all 66 Books of the Bible! He has a book of life with all His words (Our instructions) of life in it, which are for us to use, here and now; not to be confused with “The Book of Life” that will be used in Heaven! Let us look to the book with our instructions in it, which we are to use now in this age we live in, that will protect us as we live in the world that lies in wickedness, called the Holy Bible; Jn.6:63It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. Ecc.12:12And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Just as we see in 2 Tm.2:15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth: These are our book of instructions by which we will be either found in accordance to His given truths, or we will be found guilty by reason of presumptuous will; just as the man who picked up sticks on the Sabbath, after hearing the word of God out of His prophets mouth; read it for yourself: Num.15:15One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance forever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD. 16One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you. Are we not grafted into that same vine? : 30But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 31Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him. 32And while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. 33And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto Moses and Aaron, and unto all the congregation. 34And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him. 35And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones without the camp. 36And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses. The only sin that was forgivable was the sin of ignorance! I must remind you yet again; God gave these scriptures for our edification as seen in 2 Tm.3:16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. Jesus said scripture cannot be broken, Jn.10:35!
Now I’m only on page number 9 and I know most of you are already for this thing of mine to be over! Well it’s not mine and every word has been straight out of His Word, and only those who keep His words ever before them and meditate on them at all times, just like Paul said to be in prayer continuously; 1 Thes.5:17Pray without ceasing. It’s a commandment an Apostle told us to do it, and how did he tell us to pray? Eph.6:18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit: How? In the Spirit as in the Holy Spirit another commandment! So being baptized in the Holy Spirit is a commandment, just as Jesus said to do or we would not enter into the Kingdom of God! So you see it will be impossible to go to heaven unless you are Born-again by His operations; not man’s, not mine, not yours or anyone else’s; it has got to be His way! God has made it impossible for man but with God all things are possible, Mt.19:26But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. We can only get to heaven His way according to His scripture, which the Apostles gave us, as well as, other Holy men who wrote as they were carried along in the Holy Spirit, speaking through their pens, of a ready scribe!
Without Holiness and Righteousness we will never enter into His Rest!
Without Holiness and Righteousness which then equals Godliness no man or women or child who is of the age of accountability, and the age of accountability for the Israelites was twenty years of age and over, in the wilderness; all the rest died for disobedience of being self willed (Num.14:29)! (This was the age of accountability for this dispensation! That number is much lower for us today after His Spirit has been poured out on all flesh! Plus we have history for our reference to trials and errors which have been done in that past for our instructions of what to do and what not to do!) They did not want to follow the man of God, and listen to what thus sayeth the Lord so they died! You, Me, and whosoever that is self willed and put God’s word behind them as of no importance will face His wrath, no one is saved until we hear those faithful words well done My good and faithful servant, you have done well with a few things and now I will make you ruler over many! See Rv.2:25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: 27And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star. 29He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. What did Jesus say? 25But that which ye have already hold fast till I come: 26And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: We will rule with Him over the nations in His millennium reign; but only those who know His words of truth and who keep them, this is the righteousness Jesus was talking about when He had John the Baptist baptize Him in the Jordan! John didn’t want to do it, he wanted Jesus to baptize him: Jesus told John to let it be so that all righteousness could be fulfilled: Jesus had to tie the Old Testament directly to the New Covenant, what we call the New Testament: Jesus had no sin, 2 Cor.5:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Even though Jesus had no sin, He had a reason to be baptized; not only was it to show us a sign of His ways in which we are to follow after Him (Jn.14:6) to get to His Kingdom; but it was to show us submission to His divine will and to bring all righteousness of not only His word from the Old to the New but it was the operation to show an outwardly sign of repentance, the cleansing of a conscience to one who has given their lives over to their Lord and Saviour in submission to His will and His operations! This is the first steps to being sanctified by obedience to His will for your life! This is the way to become one of His ELECT! Why do they call any of the men who join the ranks of the well trained in warfare elect? It is because first of all they were chosen out of many, just a hand few become some of this nations elect Special Forces! The same thing with God, it is impossible for a sinner to make it to heaven! Just that simple, even a child can get this theology! The word of God is His Righteousness for us to live by, without being more righteous than the scribes and the Pharisees we aren’t getting in; and they knew every word of that Old Testament by heart, they learned it from a child, when they got up for breakfast they were taught the word of God which Moses brought to them: when they laid down to sleep to take a nap they were taught the Psalms; when they got up to go out and play they were taught Proverbs: when they got home from school or playing before they laid down for the night they were taught scripture; till they had it memorized by the time they could apply to be a scribe! This takes dedication to the word of God, because you are supposed to be one of the ELECT! God’s Chosen generation, a royal priestly nation, which is Holy because He is Holy as we see in 1 Pt.1:13Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; 14As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. This is a life long journey my friends, even Paul told us we have to run this race according to the rules! No one is going to be a winner unless he follows the rules of the race! If God told us to be Holy, we ought to know what that involves don’t you think? We need to know, not what we think it takes to be Holy but what our Lord knows is Holy! Which thank God He gave us a set of scriptures that will show us what is Holy to God! That is to be set apart from the world, for His use only; just as Peter said in Ac.2:40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. This means to come out from among the unclean, the unsanctified (2 Cor.6:14-18)! But just as important was the beginning of that verse; And with many other words did Peter testify and exhort; means Peter was preaching for awhile what all the Lord expected of them! Without righteousness that is greater than the scribes and the Pharisees no man will enter into the Kingdom of God! Mt.5:17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. 19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20For I say unto you: That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees; ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. And now for the Holiness clause: Heb.12:14Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: 15Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; 16Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. These are commandments of the Apostles and are found in our Book of life! Unless we are found in Holiness and Righteousness when He returns we will not enter into His rest! If you think you are one of those special few who are once saved always saved; well I have scripture for you too! Matter of fact I have a whole chapter that just cries out of something entirely different than main stream theologies! Let us look now to Matthew 25:1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. 7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. 14For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 16Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. 19After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 20And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 21His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 22He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 23His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. 34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Unless we are found doing these very things when He comes back, it is as if we are ashamed of His words and He will be ashamed of us for eternity, Dan.12:2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And those who know the word of God and do it not are the unwise servants who will be beaten with many stripes as in for eternity: because you did not heed the warning of the Lord’s Prophets, Scribes, Preachers and Teachers of the truth! Jn.4:24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. If anyone knew who God was it was Jesus because God was in Him, Mt.3:17 God said In Him I Am, well pleased! You need to realize there is no punctuation in the Greek language! Jesus said if you do not believe that “I Am He” you will die in your sins! Jn.8:24 Just because you did not know who you were worshipping! Mt.17:5While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, “IN WHOM I AM”: well pleased, hear ye him! God the Holy Spirit who is Jesus supernatural Father as we see in Mt.1:18 & 20 that which is in Mary is conceived by the Holy Spirit, which is the fulness of the Godhead in Jesus Christ: Col.2:6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: 7Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. 8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. This is the New Testament covenant baptism being buried with Jesus Christ to our sin nature and of our wicked flesh; to live according to the Holy Spirit so that we can fulfill all the law; as Paul has said, because it is written upon our hearts by the Holy Spirit! They will be taught of God! Jesus told the adulteress that He did not condemn her but to go and sin no more! Jesus told the man at the pool to stand up and take his bed home: and later He found Him in the court yard of the Temple and He told Him to go and sin no more unless a worse thing come upon Him! This was all done before the baptism of the Holy Spirit was pour out on all flesh as told by Joel2:28 and Is.28:11 by which we will learn to go past baptisms, and the raising of the dead, if the Lord wills and onto more weightier matters as discussed in Hebrews, which in chapter 12 talks about presumptuous sin, which is the unforgivable sin because you are not in the will of God’s word; His word is His will, see Mt.12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. And the following verses in the same chapter;46While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him. 47Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. 48But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? 49And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! 50For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother. Most people can’t even make it out of the beatitudes before they have gone astray, just because of this, 30He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad: Let alone get to chapter 12 of Matthew’s Holy Book that God has given to us, to show His will for us! You cannot serve mammon and the Lord; you cannot drink of the cup of this world and the cup of our Lord! If you are going to be sanctified, consecrated for our Lord’s use you must have a pure heart, 2 Tm.19:22 and you must be about our Lord’s work; as seen here: Mk.8:34And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it. 36For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 37Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 38Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. As well as here: Mt.10:24The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord. 25It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? 26Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. 27What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. 32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. 33But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. 34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. 37He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. 40He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. 41He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
This is the exact reason many are called (Actually all are called, because the Lord is not willing that any should be lost, but He knows the ending from the beginning! So He gave us these verses as a warning to all!), but few will be chosen (The ELECT)! Those who have put on a royal wedding garment so they can attend the wedding of the bride to her husband which is Jesus receiving His bride the Holy Spirit filled gospel Church of God, who was purchased with the blood of God; Ac.20:28! If Jesus was not God in the flesh, He would have straightened out Thomas for his misunderstanding of what he was seeing when Jesus told him to reach his hand inside of Him and to put his fingers in the holes in his hands and feet; what did Thomas say? Jn.20:28And Thomas answered and said unto him, My LORD and my God. Beings God cannot lie: If Jesus was not God He would have to bring out what was the truth if Jesus was not God: Just as it was proclaimed in the Old Testament in Is.40:3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Is that not what John the Baptist did in Mt.3:3? I believe so because scripture cannot lie! Jesus is the Son of God according to the flesh which was used of King David’s lineage; this is the “sure mercies” given to King David; that His sons would sit on the throne of Israel forever; how could that ever be done unless God became David’s son? Ps.110:1The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 5The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head. Which is about to be fulfilled before our very eyes very soon now! This generation will not pass before all these things be fulfilled! Just as it was said in Mt.24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away! If we are not found with our wedding garment on when He returns we will not be caught up into the heavens; what happened to that man who had not a garment on? Mt.22:1And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. 9Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests. 11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: 12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. 13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14For many are called, but few are chosen.
If we can’t even make it out of the book of Matthew; how are going to make it in all the rest of the 65 others? With man this is impossible; but with God in you all thing are then possible by the power of His Spirit living in you! 1 Jn.4:4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Just as I said at the beginning we have become preoccupied by things going on in our lives around us to the point of distraction to what are God given talents we are supposed to be used for! If we are truly born-again Christians, then we must be doing what our Lord told us to do to the least of these in the world; and when we have, we have done it unto Him! We must be found in the harvest fields, witnessing of God’s coming and the wrath to come! Ro.12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Look we were all born with a fatal disease so it is easy to die daily for the Lord, as seen in scripture, but unless we pick up our crosses and take on the work the Lord has given us to do, when He baptized us with His Holy Spirit, we are not fulfilling our ministry that He gave us to do and we will not be found worthy of Him! He did not give us the Holy Spirit to sit around and talk about what is going on in the world, but we should be talking about on all of our web-sights about the souls we have won to Christ Jesus, who have been baptized in that glorious name by which salvation comes, in the most powerful name in the universe and that name is Yashuah God our Saviour, Jesus Christ the Holy One (Is.49:26)! Being baptized in Jesus name after repenting turning around and going in a new direction! Being taught as Jesus said to know the cost of discipleship! This is what the parable about the man that had to know what it would cost him to build a tower or everyone would laugh at him when he could not finish the tower; after going broke putting in the foundation! Many people have good intentions, bless their little hearts! But that’s the problem they never got their hearts fixed by that supernatural regeneration process of being born-again correctly as the Apostles prescribed! Sometimes you have to go to different doctors to get a second opinion or even different treatments by different specialists: But glory to God; He gave us His instructions on How to come to Him His way; If we would only use them; just as Jesus said: Jn.5:39Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41I receive not honour from men. 42But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? 45Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. 47But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words? Jn.8:31Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. If we do not belief Jesus is the I Am that was before Abraham, verse 58; we will never make it to this verse here:51Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
Be not distracted about what is going on around us, let us focus in these remaining days; we have not many days left to bring in the sheaves! One watereth another spreads the seed, and another harvests, but we all must be about our Father’s business when He returns or we will face His wrath to come at the end of the millennium! Dan.12:2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Let none of us be found in the Book of Mark in the wrong light of these scriptures; Mk.9:34But they held their peace: for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest (1 Jn.2:15-17). 35And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all. 36And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them, 37Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me. 38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us (The problem in our churches today, pastors worried about their jobs being taken away from them by the laity! It’s doing what or Lord told us to do; go out and make disciples of all nations, did He not? Jn.8;51: who we going to listen to man or God? Ac.4:19-20). 39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 40For he that is not against us is on our part. 41For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward. 42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 49For every one shall be salted with fire (Jn.16:33), and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
By praying and fasting we can and will pull down all the strong holds that are against us; because greater is He that is in us then he that is in the world! And with many more words did the Apostles exhort Jesus’ disciples, the servants of our Lord Jesus Christ who has purchased each and every one of us who are truly called by His name and have been ordained of Him not of man but of Jesus Christ’s own Spirit in us as shown in Jn.14:18 where He said I will come to you! He fulfilled that when He gave us the Spirit that the world cannot receive because it sees Him not! Only those who are of God have and will see Him, Jn.6:46Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Jesus told His disciples in John 14 who He was:7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus 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, Show us the Father? Well at least Phillip found out who the Father was: I hope everyone was paying attention because if anyone is expecting to get to heaven and ask Jesus to take Him to go see God when they get there, guess what, they aint going in the first place, except to be judged by Him, (Phil.2:10 see verse12) because they don’t know who Jesus is: Jn.8:24I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins. When you study the Hebrew scripture out in Exo.3:14 you will find that the wording and the phraseology where God tells Moses His name; He says to tell them (Israel) that the “I Am” sent you which means I Am that I Am or I will be whatever I need to be, it is the same as saying “I will be whatever I will be” He will be our Salvation, or Redeemer our Jesus Christ who bought and purchased us with the Blood of God, Ac.20:28! We are not our own, we are His servants and we had better learn how to please our master so that His blessing will fall on us and not His wrath (Lk.20:18)! How can we have God’s grace which is His favour unless we have His words living in our heart (Jer.31:31-34)?
We cannot have Righteousness and Holiness which is Godliness; without our Heart being in proper order; that is our God’s honor being represented in our hearts; this is that robe or garment we all must wear to enter into His feast that He has prepared for His bride!Just as Paul said we can and should seek after the best gifts (1 Cor.1:1-8; 12:21); but we can obtain, all the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding which is the doing of these things taught to us by His word: But if we have not love we are just as Paul said: 1 Cor.13:1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity (Love), I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. 2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity (Love), I am nothing: 3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. 13And now abideth faith, hope, charity Love), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (agapē ἀγάπη love).
You see all of our faith must be shown in action, just believing is not enough, I refer you to James chapter 2:1- ffs! Belief does not become faith until we put it in motion! Just as my earthly father always told me, put your brain in gear before you engage your mouth! We too can have all the head knowledge in the word of this glorious book called the Holy Bible but unless we use it in our everyday life and keep our minds off the distractions of everyday life and the confusions Satan is trying to use to distract us from God’s objective of winning souls and keep focused on the work at hand He has given to us, in each of our ministries; we might fail yet still! We have the hope of salvation but if we lose our saltiness we have failed! If we have life’s distractions interfering with our number one priority of doing God’s will or we bring into our lives some other covetness, children, father, mother, brother, sister, food, entertainment which is escapism, or anything else comes between us and our God Jesus Christ; Satan wins! We are engaged in a spiritual battle and our eternal souls are up for grabs; who are we going to serve? Ro.6:11Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. 15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. Hopefully this will be you and I: If we keep focused on God’s plan for our lives; which is His will for us! I finish with this: Mt.22:36-40! Love thy God and thy neighbor as thy self and you have fulfilled all the Law; referenced to Pr.10:12Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins. Jms.5:19Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. 1 Pt.4:17For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begins at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.
Judgment will start with the church; first will come the calling, snatching away or as Paul says, 1 Thes.4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. And if we can’t live for the Lord now we surely won’t be able to get it done during the pouring out of the great tribulations!We had better be edifying and exhorting the brethren to be keep the word of God fresh; Mal.3:16Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. 17And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. 18Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
We will give an account of every idle word we have spoken and it had better line up with what our lord has given us to preach and teach! Mt.12:36But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. I pray that whenever I open my mouth to say anything, it is not some meaningless idle talk; but that I bring Glory to my God in Jesus Christ to win the lost with every breath I take because it was given to us by Him! 1 Pt.4:1Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; 2That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. 3For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: 4Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you: 5Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead. 6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit. 7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8And above all things have fervent charity (Love) among yourselves: for charity (Love) shall cover the multitude of sins. 9Use hospitality one to another without grudging. 10As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Johnny Cash has a song that is entitled “Going’ by the Book,” Which goes to the heart of the matter and the truth of the thing! We have been in the end times for awhile now and it is going to get worse and worse, faster and faster; like an avalanche coming off Mt. Everest; it will be taking everything in its path straight to Hell!
1 Pt.4:12Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. 15But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 2 Pt.3:1This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour: 3Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. 11Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation (Col.3:17) and godliness, 12Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.The winnowing fire that the Lord Jesus wanted to kindle: Lk.12:49I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled? 50But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished! 51Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 54And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. 55And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. 56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? 57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right? 58When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison. 59I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite!
We are just about to the time where we are going to find out just exactly what every man will give for his soul! There is a Fire coming and the clouds in heaven are just waiting for the order to rain down hell on earth! This earth is about to shake, rock, and roll just as a drunk man walking down a pot holed dirt road, filled with rocks sticking up every foot just to catch his toes on! Man’s getting ready to fall flat on his face and cry and scream but it will fall on deaf ears (Lk.6:46; Mt.7:19-23!) for our Lord will not hear Him! Last year I was sitting on the corner of my bed and my wife and I were getting ready to go to church; when I felt pain in my left ear like, it feels when someone slams the door on a brand new car with the windows up! It was a distinct pressurization feeling in my left ear very distinct and noticeable! I ask my wife, “Did you feel that?” She said, “Did I feel what?” I told her I felt like I was sitting in a brand new car or truck with the windows up; and someone slammed the door shut with great force; which hurt my ear! She didn’t know what I was talking about! So I said “Ok Lord what’s going on?” Before I even got the words off my mind, He was speaking to me saying; “That which you felt, will be as the day I shut the door to heaven; and all they that are left on the earth will feel it with great force as I have shown you; Tell them I’m about to shut the door; I stand at the door and I am ready to shut it; and I am calling come; come to me whosoever will come; for I am about to shut the door forevermore!”
If anyone wants conformation of what I heard and what He is about to do they need to get Brother Anthony Mangun’s DVD on the sermon they held last Sunday on the 27th of Oct, 2013 at the (POA) Pentecostals of Alexandria LA.! He preached just about the same message I have preached in this Sermon here! Plus they had tongues and interpretations during it, which brought the alter call; which states along the same lines as I have prophesied to you here! God confirms His word to us by others of His Church all over the world; we will preach the same messages at the same time constantly confirming His word to us! Heed the word of God brothers and sisters; we are about to go home! And some to everlasting torment, where the worm dieth not and you are the fuel for the fire as spoken by Eze.21: 31And I will pour out mine indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men, and skilful to destroy. (This was what Satan was allowed to do what he did, God will fulfill Satan’s wish and allow him to be ruler and king over his kingdom in Hell! 2 Tm.2:20But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.) 32Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the LORD have spoken it. See also verses in Eze.22:30-31! Heg.1:7Thus saith the LORD of hosts: Consider your ways.
