The Practice Proves

A lot of believers suffer within sin issues, and I want to encourage you, that first and foremost if you love God and His Word you HATE sin and all wickedness.

“No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God,”   1 John 3:9 ESV.

“You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions,”    Psalm 45:7 ESV.

There are a lot of believers suffering within sin issues, and I want to encourage you today that first and foremost if you love God and His Word you HATE sin and all wickedness.

If you hate sin that proves you have been changed and belong to God.

Now ALL believers in Christ have had trials dealing with sin issues that arise as we grow in grace and in His knowledge in the Word of God.

For example, I had a very hard case in myself, being that I couldn’t forgive and held on to bitterness to someone who hurt me deeply.

I thought I would be stuck forever it seemed, but it was hard, but I did not give up.  I struggled a very long time, and I didn’t want them rooted in my heart! I was so serious and beloved it is going to take being very serious to be an overcomer in the days to come for it will cost believers in Christ our very life if need be.

I finally had an on the carpet moment! What I meant is, I got very serious and fasted and prayed and I desperately sought and asked God…. “God, I need your grace and favor to forgive and help me to dig and release all roots of bitterness within me, because I cannot do it myself!”

Each day I kept asking God, anytime I heard those words in my head that would prompt me into unforgiveness or bitterness, I would pray and ask God for his favor, HIS grace, and strength each day to overcome these sins! I got stronger and stronger as time went on but in all honesty of heart and mind, it wasn’t easy, and I struggled but I kept God in the struggle with me and I truly hated my sin.

Then one day I noticed that I had no more unforgiveness and bitterness about the person!

I was so relieved and surprised that they were gone, and I finally could forgive, and the root of bitterness had finally been dug out of my heart!

I think we need to be real with people, because nobody talks about the processes we go through to victory. People talk about how holy and good Paul was and I know he was.  But I can read between the lines, that man suffered for the gospel, and nobody can tell me different!

Sometimes our victories are moment by moment or some are demonstratively amazing, but no one truly knows the spiritual muscle you packed on when you conquered your sin moment by moment, or massive times of victory. In every case spiritual ground is won!

In closing, the bottom line is if we hate sin, we prove our love for God.  When we practice lawlessness or sin in whatever form, we prove we need correction and repentance, or we are a false believer. He who practices sin is not of God.

As a believer, you must not practice and live in wickedness and sin.  For example, if you say you love God and go to church but you believe God overlooks the fact that you go home and stay drunk, commit open fornication or homosexuality, and even expose your children to it?

Does this sound like reality to you?

“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God,”   1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ESV.

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people…”   Hebrews 10:26-31 ESV.

The Last Curtain Call for Many

God’s Wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness.  We each are accountable for what we allow ourselves to be led into and out of.

First, please prayerfully read Romans 1.

God’s Wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness.  We each are accountable for what we allow ourselves to be led into and out of.

It is important that you do not just take man at his word, or even when he prophecies, preaches, or teaches from a pulpit using a Bible!

These are very evil moments of time in the sands of the hourglass, and we do not have the time our predecessors had in making mistakes on timing! In many of our families we are the last one that will reach our family, and this is true for many.

How much more should we be taking time to pray daily and talk to our family members?  I have listened and heard with my own ears these very words for my family.

Imagine…. “God is saying you are the last that shall represent Me to your family and friends.”

If we would take these words seriously, we would do a lot of things differently!  (Yes, and many of you are considered the black sheep of your family, BUT GOD!)

Why?  Because of the men and women who “Who hold the truth in unrighteousness.”

All creation, and the whole world have clearly seen that HE is THE eternal power and Godhead, so they are ALL without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

When they knew God, they gave him no glory nor were they thankful and their wild imaginations and foolish heart became darkened.

They claimed to be wise, but their actions proved foolish.  They even tried to change the glory of the incorruptible God into an image like a corruptible man. (Romans 1:23)

These men and women who pretend to hold the truth of God in unrighteousness who take the Truth and twist it to mean what they want, and none are encouraged to seek out for themselves what The Bible says and means.

We have a responsibility to encourage the people to pray and study God’s Word for themselves.

And with full blown sin in motion as it is now in America and the World, the wrath of God is being revealed from heaven to those who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth.

There is no time in history that compares to this time, and I can guarantee one thing that it will get worse, and it will not get better.

Even Jesus said that! It is the time to fast and pray and seek The LORD for His direction and guidance.  It is time to pray for a family member until God releases you.

If you are sitting around waiting on things to get back to normal, I am sorry those days are gone forever!

This is the last curtain call for many and we are called to arms and to intercession!

Therefore, God gave them over to the lust of their own hearts.

We must remember that God is not tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone. But each is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. (James 1:14)

For God is my witness
In ALL the world it is written
His authority and divine plan of all time
Too many have given in to
The weight of lost hope and dreams
And filled with depression and silence it brings
For the hope deferred
Made the heart very fat and sick
Many shattered, scattered, silenced
On the eve of the greatest event of the millennia
Take it back believer again, take it back you soul to sing
Take it back and lift your head so you are not dead!
It is a new beginning a new horizon in view unlike anything
You could ever fathom or fictionally true
Beloved you are not forgotten although
You felt done, you even typed “DONE”
With script in hand, you silently gave in
To mediocrity but never could such a one
Be Done, for I AM the One for when the
Curtain call come and when it is time to close
“You will see Me beloved one, you will See Me,” says The LORD!

Come Out From Those of This World!

“Come out from among those of this world and this worlds system and be ye separate,” says The LORD! 

The Word of The LORD came unto me. 

“Come out from among those of this world and this worlds system and be ye separate,” says The LORD!  “And though iniquity is abounding, the love of many shall grow cold and calloused.”

We must not give in to what displeases God we must repent of all unbelief and doubt.

Be not disillusioned and do not cast away your confidence, for God will continue to show you the way but be not of an evil motive to not believe, and doubt His Words that are all holy and just and perfect.

“Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God,”   Hebrews 3:12 KJV.

“For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.  He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith The LORD. And again, The LORD shall judge his people.  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;  Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.  For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.  Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.  For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them th
