Beloved of God, those of us who have made Christ our only hope and life will be critically appraised for standing on the Truth contained in God’s Word, the whole Holy Bible.
Our Faith, Character with the good fruits of The Spirit of God are lived with desire to seek Him, in a Faith-filled heart — as in fellowship — in our relationship with our creator and LORD.
Being saved isn’t deciding to follow God, then like a marriage, you go to the altar and receive Salvation as the betrothed of God, then run back to other lovers with no evidence of a changed life.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways
God has many created beings, but he wanted something very different for you. He saw your heart and wanted someone who would choose to Love and have a deep abiding Relationship and fellowship with HIM.
He longs for a heart that’s purely motivated by Love and simply by His touch in intimacy.
God’s desire for his creation is that we learn to serve him out of pure heart of Love, and not because you have to.
The heart of God is pure love, and He doesn’t share His Secrets with those who have no fellowship with HIM.
We are to be hiding The Word of God in our hearts, so that we might not sin against Him.
As The Bride of Christ, we are to experience the most intimate relationship with our Groom.
Salvation isn’t a one-time decision, it’s a daily lifestyle that is eternally sealed with the heart that is totally His.
It’s not like looking into a mirror, and promptly walking away forgetting what he saw.
The beloved of God are already living eternally with an address in heaven. His kingdom come HIS will be done on earth as it is in heaven. God desires that all might be saved but not all will.
His wooing is His longing and desire for us is to seek and find HIM in our daily walk as our relational choice. We have as much of HIM as we want. He longs for our fellowship in our relationship to grow.
His Spirit is easily quenched when we have no reverence.
God doesn’t want people who don’t want Him. Why would He?
Not all choose God, and many come and make halfhearted decisions at an Altar, and go promptly back to the ways of this world, thinking they are saved. This is heresy, and not aligned with God’s Word.
Being a true believer carries weight, and there is a price, as it costs us everything to carry our cross.
Salvation isn’t Fire Insurance; you can’t buy your way to heaven.
We believers in Jesus Christ have been called and chosen to become God’s man or woman created in God’s Image; and as a Triune being, having total Free Will and choice to become a true seeker and finder of God. For He is not far from them who diligently seek Him.
God did not take our free will choice away. We must choose each day, whom we serve. The same way we received Jesus — now walk in it. There will be outward and inward evidence of true conversion experience.
Faith without works is dead. And it isn’t about Laws; it’s about having the fulfillment of The Law abiding within us — as we die daily.
It grieves my heart that I know people who have decided not to follow The LORD by sincerity. And in lack of purity, they adhere to strong delusion’s thinking they can live anyway they want, with all manner of sin and depravity, and God in His Mercy, keeps warning and keeps warning.
Repentance and right Relationship with our savior Jesus Christ cost. He purchased our freedom, but it cost Him everything, and it will cost us everything to follow Him.
Preachers and believers, it is time to stop lying to people by not addressing sin, repentance, and what it means in turning away from sin and walking in newness of life. It is not an option. It’s the life of the true beloved child of God.
Prayer and Fellowship
In My prayer and fellowship with The LORD today, I saw a religious type of Church, and suddenly I was at the door and the mat said “WELCOME.”
I asked The LORD what it meant; He said, “I AM visiting Churches to see if I AM made welcome.”
Beloved, the time is at hand when persecution shall increase and we are not to fear it, but to face it with confidence for we are The Temple of The Holy Spirit, and we are equipped, and He is with us.
We chose Jesus as Lord and Savior, and He saved us and keeps us, as we continue in pursuit of that love relationship in prayer and through seeking Him, in The Holy Bible.
When you love somebody, you yearn for them; you desire them and want to be with them to hear what they say.
The LORD wants us to realize that we are hearing Him, and He is preparing the way. However, there are many adversaries and pretenders — those of the religious sort will be your greatest adversary.
Do not fear or worry about what to say or do, for the Spirit of God will give it to you in that very hour.
“If the world hates you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If 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. Remember 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. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them; they had not had sin: but now they have no Cloak for their sin.” John 15:18-22
The LORD came to those who said they had God, and their Law poke of Him, but they could not see Him.
I remember the grief of our Lord and His rejection, as He looked at the city and Temple… and said,
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; and [k]assuredly, I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of The LORD!” Luke 13:34-35 NKJV
In HIS Grace and Mercy,
