Every Idle Word We Speak, We Will Give An Answer For!
5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
Mt.12:36 But I say unto you: That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment!
37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned!
See Jn.12:46 I am come a Light into the world, that whosoever believeth on Me should not abide in darkness.
47 And if any man hear My words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
48 He that rejecteth Me, and receiveth not My words, hath One that judgeth him: the Word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the Last Day!
49 For I have not spoken of Myself; but the Father (Holy Spirit Mt.1:18, 20 & 23; Lk.1:35 and 37!) which sent Me, He gave Me a Commandment (a Decree, a Royal Sacred Word, Even Dogma!), what I should say, and what I should speak!
50 And I know that His Commandment is Life Everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto Me (His Body, His Vessel Rev.19:10, Jesus is the Grace & Truth, the Holy Word of God in the Flesh, Jn.1:1-18.), so I speak!
You see Jesus and the Father the Holy Spirit are One in the same, Jn.10:30 as seen in Jn.12:45, the I Am manifested in the Daylight of Humanity Jn.1:1-18 & 1 Tm.3:16 explains all of this very well, if we will just receive it in its simplicity!
The Lord will not be mocked, Gal.6:1 Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are Spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
2 Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the LAW OF CHRIST!
3 For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself.
4 But Let Every Man Prove His Own Work (Phil.2:12), and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.
5 For every man shall bear his own burden! We cannot have someone else stand before our God in judgment for us we must stand on our own merits of repentance, baptism, and infilling of the Holy Spirit as required in Jn.3:3-8, to be found justified in the minimum required of us to do, to make ourselves ready for Him to be able to live inside of us: So we can be His Holy Temples, 1 Cor.3:1-ff, 1 Cor.6:1-ff & 2 Cor.6:14-18 as well.
6 Let Him (Is.54:13; Jer.31:31-34; Heb.8:8-13, see Jn.14:18 & 26; Jn.15:20 & 26, Jn.16:13 etc. such as Is.28:9-12 or you will end up as all those being taught by men as seen in verse 13-ffs!), that is taught in the Word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. (Same as on verse 10).
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap!
8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (See Gal.5:1-ffs & Ro.8:1-ffs).
9 And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (This is talking about a reaping of a harvest of the Gospel that is to be sown by us, so we can reap some 30, some 60 and some 100 fold!). See this link: http://biblehub.com/interlinear/galatians/6.htm,
10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good, (Be perfect 18 agathós – inherently (intrinsically) good; as to the believer, 18(agathós) describes what originates from God and is empowered by Him in their life, through faith.) unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (not everyone is eligible in this class of people, just as this word was used for blood kin or of another classification these went through Ac.2:1-47! http://biblehub.com/greek/3609.htm).
Joel said in the Last Days that the Lord will pour out His Spirit (Jn.14:18 see all of Jn.17:1-27 so we all could be one of the same type, God Breathed, Jn.1:12-13 seen in Ac.2:1-47 having done all to stand before our Maker on that day 1 Pt.4:17-19!), upon all flesh, and then they too will have to decide whom they will serve, Ro.6:16 Know 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?
Your works do follow you (Rev.14:13 many verses are attached to this one verse in my Thomson Nelson Student Study Bible for studying, these concepts further on out!), clear unto death by which you will be judged by every idle word you have spoken Mt.12:36-37, for the very word of God will judge us all, Jn.12:48-50: How will your word match up to the Almighty’s Ro.3:-ffs? Or will you be found lacking and worse yet no better than a LIAR? Are you living in the will of God which is His words of Righteousness and our Holiness is the obedience to them all: (http://biblehub.com/interlinear/2_timothy/3.htm).
2 Tm.3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15 And 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.
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works! (http://biblehub.com/interlinear/2_timothy/3-17.htm).
We have all been called unto repentance (http://biblehub.net/searchstrongs.php?q=Repentance), first before anything, we are to have turned and gotten right with God, and gone a new and a better way, for we were once sinners, now we are called to be of a right mind, to be the Light of the world (Mt.5:14-16)! To have been turned a new direction, as Jesus Himself told the adulteress that was thrown down at His feet; He told her to go and sin no more; just as the cripple at the pool of Bethesda;
Jn.5:1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, He saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the Sabbath.
10 The Jews therefore said unto him that was cured: It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.
11 He answered them, He that made me whole, the same said unto me, Take up thy bed, and walk.
12 Then asked they him: What man is that which said unto thee, Take up thy bed, and walk?
13 And he that was healed wist not who it was: for Jesus had conveyed himself away, a multitude being in that place.
14 Afterward 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!
15 The man departed, and told the Jews that it was Jesus, which had made him whole.
16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the Sabbath day.
17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill Him, because He not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God! See Lk.1:35 God the power of the Highest is God and that is what Jesus is full of, without measure, manifested (Miraculously http://biblehub.net/searchstrongs.php?q=miraculous) in the flesh of Mary’s seed, under the Law, see Mt.5:17-20! That is what we have to work with just like Jesus did, His own words to us, Jn.14:6 now go and do all that I have said to do (See Mt.21:21-22; Mt.6:33 & 7:7-8 and believe.)!
Unless we know that it is possible, to go and sin no more by walking in God’s Truths; and follow after all that our God with us said to do, for it is by His words alone that cleanse us, only when we keep His promises to us (Jn.15:3; Mt.6:33 & 7:7-8), that are His individual words put into sentences, that make up His eternal will for us to go and be found PERFECT as He is perfect Mt.5:48; for they who have a pure Heart are they that live all these words given to them by His Holy Spirit Mt.5:8, who had them all written 2 Pt.1:19-21, all scripture is God breathed and written upon our hearts and always on our minds (1 Cor.2:1-16), that is how you have the Mind of Jesus, Jn.14:6, walking as he walked with us!
Jn.16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now!
13 Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth (See Jn.1:17, Jesus is the Spirit of Truth Jn.14:18 & 26; 15:26.), is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak Mt.10:20: and He will shew you things to come Rev.19:10 Jesus is that Spirit of Prophecy see Is.55:1-13 and Zech.12:10; 530 years before the actual fact the Spirit tells Zechariah that they will look upon Me whom they will pierce! Not Him but Me, whom they will pierce in the cross at Calvary (Jn.19:37)!
14 He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of Mine, and shall shew it unto you Is.54:13 Jer.31:31-34 and Heb.8:8-13!
15 All things that the Father hath are Mine (See Jn.14:7-9; Mt.28:18 etc.): therefore said I, that He shall take of Mine, and shall shew it unto you (Mt.28:18, Jn.10:30 & 12:45!). Because the Father is in Jesus (Lk.1:35), without measure, God is a Spirit Jn.4:24, we are all called to be Holy as He is Holy (Rev.4:8; 1 Pt.1:13-16; Ex.19:6 etc.), and Jesus has that very same Spirit in Him without measure Jn.3:34, for the words that come down from above are from Him who is from above (Jn.3:13, 31-34 & Jn.6:62 see Jn.5:39-44, that are of God alone!), which is Jesus Himself the I Am that was before Abraham Jn.8:58, and unless we know Jesus in this Truth by His Spirit, meaning Supernatural Spirit, that is all-powerful and in us, there is nothing He or The True Saints of God cannot do (See Lk.1:37 & Heb.6:1-12). Unless we know Jesus and His very own Spirit that is being poured out upon all flesh in these last days in this way as seen in Ac.2:1-4, we have not been converted, regenerated, transformed, or born again at all!
Without His Holy Spirit there is no justification 1 Cor.6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (Jn.3:3-8 mandatory see Ro.8:9, it is a MUST do, the same as Ac.4:12 and 2:38-40-ffs as well. It takes all scripture living in us to have His mind and His Spirit, which is His Word and Will for all of us to live in and by! Mt12:30-32 & 46-50).
Without the Holy Spirit who breathed all the Sacred Words of God (His Grace and Favour) to mankind helping us to know exactly what He wanted us to know, there cannot be perfect truth in us because first we have not the Spirit manifested in us to teach us the way, the truth, and the life we are to go, and without the Holy Spirit we cannot enter into Heavenly realms either, without the supernatural power of the Almighty God being in us (Eph.1:1-14).
See Ro.8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit (If you are truly a Saint of God Born Again! That is who all the Epistles are written too, those who have had the Ac.2:1-4 experience! See Ac.11:1-18 for the councils confirmation being given that God has truly given the gift of Salvation to the Gentiles who spoke in tongues, Ac.10:44-48 and were baptized in Jesus’ mighty name Ac.4:12, for it is required of us to do it that way by Jesus Himself Lk.24:47!), if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His!
Unless we worship the Lord first by knowing who Jesus is as the I Am, Jn.8:24, there is no salvation because there is still no truth in us, which is mandatory, it is required of us, to be found perfect without Spot or Wrinkle, to be Holy means to have done all to stand before our Lord with all being done that was required of us by Him and His words to us; so we too can be found perfect and without blemish, Eph.5:27, Phil.2:12 & 2 Tm.2:19-22-26 & Mk.8:34-38! This is no problem when the Almighty lives in you (Is.9:6-7) but impossible if He does not!
No one can fake it to heaven and into heavenly realms, read Jn.10:1-ffs, this is what Jesus was talking about those who try to climb into the sheepfold another way, very much like all those wanna be preachers and teachers who preach and teach to those itching ears; here is what they will be saying on that day when the Lord comes to give everyone a chance to give an account of themselves on judgment day (1 Pt.4:17-19), here is what all the televangelist will be saying on that day seen in Mt.7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Do they still look like all the word or have they made a change in their lives and come out of the unclean one, Jms.4:1-ffs! If we remain as the word where is the repentance and the proof of it, Ac.26:19-20 we are to prove all things, 1 Thes.5:1-28, we are to not even have an appearance of the world that is still in its wickedness 1 Jn.5:19, in us! See 1 Jn.5:18, we are to be without sin in our lives, when we live in the Spirit we are law setters, we establish the Law Ro.3:31 see Ro.7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin. We keep our flesh in subjection to the law of sin to make sure we do not sin, for the law is the bare minimum that the flesh must abide in but if we are being led by the Holy Spirit we will be above the law of the flesh and of the Spirit which is a higher standard of our God’s own Will for us to live as Holy beings made in his likeness! Remember we have been buried with Christ Jesus and are dead to sin of this world, but we are to mortify this flesh that wars against the Holy Spirit too, Gal.5:17 and 1 Cor.6:12, see Ro.8:13 & being an Overcomer in Revelation chapter 2 & 3: http://biblehub.com/1_corinthians/6-12.htm).
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. (See Jn.15:1-ffs).
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. (We have to have fruits and works that bear witness of our conversion and regeneration of repentance Ac.26:19-20 and further like verses if one wants to find them they are there to be found!)
21 Not everyone that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven! (See Jn.3:13 as well Jesus is Omnipresent as well as Jn.6:62)!
22 Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy Name? And in thy Name have cast out devils? And in thy Name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, ye that work iniquity!
They will be those who say those words seen in Ps.22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Those same words Jesus spoke on the cross were a prophetic warning to all those who would think to lead others astray for mere monetary gains in the world of Preaching and Teaching the Truth they know nothing about! (Prov.21:27 The sacrifice (Prayer Offerings) of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind?)! They have no true wisdom that cometh from above:
Prov.1:20 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
21 She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying,
22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:
29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:
30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.
31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. (Is.4:1).
32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
We either win this race of ours legally by the rules set forth by our LORD that are in His every word to us Mt.4:4 But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God!
We cannot win our race that Apostle Paul was talking about which is our life’s race to Heaven’s gate without playing by the rules set forth by our Great God! He is not a man first of all, He is Spirit, the Holy Spirit that became man, begotten, incarnated, or manifested 1 Tm.3:16, whatever; He the Holy Spirit robbed Himself in flesh came down to us because He so loved the entire world (Jn.3:16-ffs) that was at risk here from sin that had entered into His Universe, that God had to figure out a way to cleanse it, or destroy the whole thing and start over, with either water for cleansing or with fire, as in Baptism, washing away the filth of the flesh (1 Pt.3:21; Mt.3:11; Lk.3:16 and with Fire, Ac.2:1-4!), not the sin, for the blood of God covers all past sins, (Ro.3:25), God’s Grace or Favour is not for covering future sins; it is the power to live above sin, that is how you live in God’s Favour, we go and sin no more EVER!
We are to repent and go a new direction, not being led by the flesh! That was buried and died in the water of Baptism, the watery grave, in Jesus’ name, Ro.6:4, Col.2:12, that is how we put on Jesus (Gal.3:26-27, Lk.24:47), by dying to self and being born again of a new creature, born of a New Spirit of a new heart of God’s Eternal Love that is pure in us; (Ac.2:1-4, that is how we know a Saint, meaning Hagios, Holy, because they have been born again of the Holy One, Lk.1:35, in Spirit and in Truth, in a new fleshly body, a Holy One!), this is who all the Epistles were written to: 2 Cor.5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.
5 Now He that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
9 Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of Him!
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive the things done in His body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. We have been bought we are no longer our own, we are to be His Body! See 1 Cor.3:1-16-17 and 1 Cor.6:1-19-20 as well as 2 Cor.6:14-18; see 1 Pt.2:1-25. We are to be Holy and Priestly Nation of God’s chosen children, abiding in One Shepherd watching our Souls!
11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart! (They have an appearance of godliness but no power, dunamis power, Strong’s number 1411!). (http://biblehub.net/searchstrongs.php?q=dunamai)
13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.
14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead:
15 And that He died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again! (That right there is the difference of a True Saint of God or one who just calls himself a Christian because they know of Him and believe in Him but that is all they do! One has surrendered themselves over to His Will and His Word s to us that we actually live by!)
16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we Him no more.
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he (Holy being bought by God’s own blood, which paid for the price of our sins! He the Saint…) is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
21 For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (Jesus Christ our LORD and Saviour! Ac.2:36 & Ac.10:36, Jesus is LORD of ALL!).
Those who have run their course well and have listened to every word of the Lord, and have fulfilled it, with love for Him, as a faithful servant not grudgingly; for the commandments of God are not grievous to us. 1 Jn.5:3 for they keep us from all sin: 1 Jn.5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but He that is begotten of God keepeth Himself, and that wicked one toucheth Him not. (See Jn.14:6, that is who we are to follow in Word and in Deed Col.3:17! Or we fail most miserably, being still in our sins of being self-willed and reprobates of hardened hearts of stony flesh! Jn.8:47, We either hear the word of God and do it or we are of the other that are still in the world of the lusts of the flesh, that will not enter into His rest, 1 Jn.2:15-17! See is.28:9-12 & 13 who are the other ones, who will not hear the word of God in their ears and be healed of their wickedness! But we of the word are they who will return with Him to reign with Him in His Kingdom to come!). That’s because His Spirit is in us to keep us from all wrong, when we are led by the His Holy Spirit and not by the flesh that wars against the Spirit:
Gal.5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God!
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law!
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts!
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit!
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another!
We have the words of the Apostles, who follow after Christ Jesus, who told us to follow them as they follow Him, see Jn.15:3, 14, 20 & 26! We either keep all that is given to us or fall short being partially right, with sin in our lives, but know this that one sin is enough to keep anyone out of Heaven, for sin is death!
Ro.6:16 Know 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?
17 But 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.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death! (Sin is a death sentence and we will be cut off from our God due to any sin in our lives!).
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God (Lk.17:7-10), ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life! (We have our own jobs to do for the Lord, and we had better be found doing them when He returns for His Bride who has made herself ready for Him: That means we have to do something with our faith;
(See Jms.2:1 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which He hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11 For He that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13 For He shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone! (You can believe all day long but without works how is your beliefs substantiated, without fruits or works bearing an act of repentance, Ac.26:19-20!).
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble! (Can you name Him? If not there is still work to do here isn’t there?).
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made PERFECT?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also! It takes living by all scriptures in us to be found whole, and pure in the eyes of Him who sees all! Mt.5:48)
Ro.6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in tongues as given for evidence and confirmation of testing the spirits (1 Jn.4:1 & 1 Cor.14:39!), we have no rules to test with do we but the confirmation that was given to us in the Words of God for our testing Ac.17:10-11; Ac.2:1-4, 8:16-17, 10:44-48, 11:1-18, 19:1-7 and even in Ac.22:16 and again in Ac.26:19-20, that we too must have works worthy of repentance, it is a commandment Ac.17:10-11. You cannot be born again without it showing up on the outside as you grow closer to God He will draw closer to you, and you will learn what it is that our Great God expects from each of us! And it is not just to believe and you are saved either that is some kind of Lutheran Dogma of the Roman Catholic’s stuff trying to get rid of some more of the Holy Sacred Words of God, by cutting them out God’s own Words of life to us: Even from the life we are to live and to rely on without a priest for absolution but Jesus is the only mediator between God and man, Gal.3:20, but God is still One! See Zech.14:9, we have to have all scripture complement each other or we have the wrong Exegesis of it!
We must be doers of all the words of God, or we too will lose our place in heaven as Saul did in 1 Sam.15:1 Samuel also said unto Saul, The Lord sent me to anoint thee to be king over His people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord.
2 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.
5 And Saul came to a city of Amalek, and laid wait in the valley.
6 And Saul said unto the Kenites, Go, depart, get you down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them: for ye shewed kindness to all the children of Israel, when they came up out of Egypt. So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites.
7 And Saul smote the Amalekites from Havilah until thou comest to Shur that is over against Egypt.
8 And he took Agag the king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword.
9 But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but everything that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly! (The down fall of Saul, he spared Agag for one and then he kept back all that was perfect for breeding and for sacrificing, which they were not told to do!).
10 Then came the word of the Lord unto Samuel, saying,
11 It repenteth Me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following Me, and hath not performed My Commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the Lord all night.
12 And when Samuel rose early to meet Saul in the morning, it was told Samuel, saying, Saul came to Carmel, and, behold, he set him up a place, and is gone about, and passed on, and gone down to Gilgal.
13 And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him: Blessed be thou of the Lord: I have performed the commandment of the Lord.
14 And Samuel said: (One of my favorite verses in the whole Bible right here!): What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?
15 And Saul said: They have brought them from the Amalekites: For the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto the Lord thy God; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.
16 Then Samuel said unto Saul: Stay, and I will tell thee what the Lord hath said to me this night. And he said unto him, Say on.
17 And Samuel said: When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel, and the Lord anointed thee king over Israel?
18 And the Lord sent thee on a journey, and said: Go and utterly destroy the sinners the Amalekites, and fight against them until they be consumed.
19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the Lord, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the Lord?
20 And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the Lord, and have gone the way which the Lord sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek (Another failure and Saul doesn’t even see it, much like those in the churches of today is it not? They have blinded themselves with their own wants and desires of the flesh which is more important than the words of God to them! Just like Saul! They only do the part of the words of God that seem right unto them!), and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.
21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the Lord thy God in Gilgal.
22 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to OBEY IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE, and TO HEARKEN THAN THE FAT OF RAMS!
23 FOR REBELLION IS AS THE SIN OF WITCHCRAFT, AND STUBBORNNESS IS AS INIQUITY AND IDOLATRY. BECAUSE THOU HAST REJECTED THE WORD OF THE LORD, HE HATH ALSO REJECTED THEE FROM BEING KING!
24 And Saul said unto Samuel, I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice (Mt.10:16-42).
25 Now therefore, I pray thee, pardon my sin, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord.
26 And Samuel said unto Saul, I will not return with thee: for thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, and the Lord hath rejected thee from being king over Israel.
27 And as Samuel turned about to go away, he laid hold upon the skirt of his mantle, and it rent.
28 And Samuel said unto him, The Lord hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.
29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent: for He is not a man that He should repent! (Samuel was right here as well God is not a man, God is a Spirit who is Holy and Righteous in all His ways! Ex.33:19 & Ro.9:15 & 18.).
30 Then he said, I have sinned: yet honour me now, I pray thee, before the elders of my people, and before Israel, and turn again with me, that I may worship the Lord thy God.
31 So Samuel turned again after Saul; and Saul worshipped the Lord. (After all the Lord might have mercy on Saul if he repents with a pure heart. After all He changes not, and He would that all come to repentance, 2 Pt.3:9.).
32 Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said: Surely the bitterness of death is past.
33 And Samuel said: As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before the Lord in Gilgal.
34 Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.
35 And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and the Lord repented that He had made Saul king over Israel.
Saul lost it all because he was afraid of his men, so he said, but he was just looking for someone to blame other than his own foolishness and self-will, after all he was the King of Israel. His power went to his head and he became a respecter of persons, rather than to obey the word of God-given to him by the Lord’s own Prophet! That is a Dangerous mistake at any age to come, for God will always have at least one Prophet, which He can use, look at Elijah. He thought he was the only one left that worshipped God, but God had 7000 that had not bowed a knee to Baal. He will always have a remnant, Mt.7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it! (Mt.20:16 & Mt.22:14 as well!).
I have warned you repeatedly, this is what He is looking for in us, to repent, Rev.2:4-5, and do the first works, be baptized every one of you in the only name by which salvation comes, Ac.4:12, that is answering what Jesus said to do in Lk.24:47: Let’s read it; Lk.24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem!
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
We are all witnesses of these things for the word of God cannot lie and are all true! Therefore that is what the first church of God in Jesus Christ did, when about 3000 souls joined the church of the living God on the day of Pentecost, when Peter preached his first sermon! When they asked men and brethren what must we do to be saved? Here is the answer to all salvation: Ac.2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying: Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved! Not man with his programs in a assembly of believers but God our Lord Jesus searched their very hearts and found the pure of heart and anointed them with His Holy Spirit, and he added unto them daily that are drawn to the Father all find Jesus for that same reason He is the Father always has been and always will be, he is the First and the Last, the Aleph Tav, the Alpha and Omega, there is none other Zech.14:9, the One True God 1 Jn.5:20!
There is the answer, the simplicity of it! All others are just hocus pocus, rituals and traditions, we either keep to the Apostle’s doctrines or walk any old way we want, and you had better get all the enjoyment out of it as you can for eternity awaits just ahead; so are you going to live for the flesh of pleasure or walk in Spirit and in Truth, mortifying the flesh that wars against the Spirit? That is what the Holy Word of God says we must do: Jn.4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him (Jn.1:12-13).
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth (See Jn.1:17).
Jesus says that if we are His we will keep all His commandments as well Jn.14:15, Jesus even says only the children of God will hear His words to them, Jn.8:47!
All I know is that God cannot lie, Num.23:19, 1 Sam.15:29, we can preach no other gospel or we too will be accursed three or four times for adding to and taking away from the words of God, Deu.4:2, Deu.5:31-33, Josh.1:7 Heb.13:8-9 and Rev.22:18-19 but our God cannot lie in either the New Testament Heb.6:18, seen in Mal.3:6, because He changes not and is looking for this from us as well: Mal.3:16 Then 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.
17 And 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.
18 Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
He changes not therefore consider your ways:
Hag.1:5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways.
6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Consider your ways.
You are supposed to be the Living Temples for God’s Holy Spirit to be in us. That is why we are to come out from among the unclean generations because the world that is un-repented is still in its sin and is wicked and in an unclean state 1 Jn.5:19, and we are to be a Holy Nation set apart from the world Ex.19:6, we are to be Holy Priests of God, who are His children! From Old to New Testament God stays the same, He has called us to Holiness and Righteousness; His way or we have not overcome this flesh nature yet still and will die in our sins until we have cleansed ourselves by doing all that He has told us to do His way, in His words to us:
2 Tm.2:19 Nevertheless 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.
20 But 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.
21 If 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!
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart! (Please continue to the end of this chapter as well it is that important for every one of us to read this and understand it so we know what it is that we are to be doing when our Lord returns for those who are in His fields of labour!)
When we have done that; we are to go to work doing all that He wants us to go and do for Him, this is in answer to:
Jn.3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee: Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus 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?
5 Jesus 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!
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7 Marvel not that I said unto thee: Ye must be born again.
8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit (See Mk.8:34-38)!
When we get our heart right with God, we look to Him with the heart of a servant, which was formed by a Great God, we are the clay, He is the Potter, can the clay tell the Potter what and how to make itself? No God will have mercy on whom He will have mercy on, this too was started in Ex.33:19 with Moses, and is carried over to the New Testament as well in Ro.9:15 & 18, we either live by the word of God because He is our Sovereign God and love Him or we perish with a wrong heart and a rebellious spirit, the choice is all ours!
As for me and my house I choose the Lord our God to serve, for He is merciful and His loving kindness are from generation to generation to all them who love Him with a pure heart! If you need help with anything I have told you today or anytime every. Do not hesitate, get a hold of me and let’s talk about it, Hell’s fires are too hot, and are never quenched. To be getting one thing wrong in our walk with our Great God, whose NAME is above every name; Jesus our LORD and Christ Ac.2:36, who is LORD of all Ac.10:36 and that is all we have to remember, that there is but One God and His name is Jesus of Nazareth Rev.4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.
And only the Overcomers of the flesh will be found at His dinner table in Heaven: Rev.3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is Holy, He that is true, He that hath the key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patients, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth! (And few that there will be, Mt.20:16 and 22:14!).
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown!
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him My New Name!
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches!
You have only one chance to get this right in this lifetime or for eternity be left out wailing and crying, “My God my God why have you forsaken me?” Get a hold of me let us talk and reason together, for the Lord would that none be lost and all come to repentance, and to grow in Grace in the word of God, so you can follow Him in word and in deed (Col.3:17) so you too can find His favour, and mercy forevermore in the Knowledge of Jesus Christ 2 Pt.3:18!
