Count The Cost of being the Lord’s

posted by PrayerWarrior

When I came to the Lord, I said Father here am I send me! He told me to count the cost, then put before my face many scriptures that showed me to really consider what it is to be used of the Lord to be called by the Lord. I will share as many as I can here with you and how it worked in my heart and mind to prepare me for a walk that was worthy of the Lord and His will and ways. He showed me one of the first things was to really consider what happens if you turn away from God and showed me 2 Peter 2:20-22

20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. They are filthy again with the cares of the world and the pursuits of this life. This life is not about us! This life is about God and how much we love Him.

If we want to spend eternity in the presence of God, then we must live only for Him, here in this time now. Think about it, why would God want anyone who does not live in Him, for Him, and their life all about seeking to know Him better? Why would He want anyone who is not barely in love with Him? Those who pursue their own pleasures in this life are not a giving lover. This is a most intimate deep relationship we are to be pursuing with God the Father, through Christ Jesus! Not just oh when I have time God, I’ll give you one day a week take it or leave it okay! That does not work.

God is looking for sold out bought up servant’s who are willing vessels for His grace. Overflowing out of our lives into others lives. He wants to pour so much into you that you have no choice but to pour out onto others, from the abundance in your heart. So He tells us to count the cost. It is up to us to do that very thing. Because as Peter showed us it is worse for those who walked with God and had a bit of knowledge of Him who did not continue in their first love of Him, and keep on pursuing Him.

He wants us to forever keep seeking after Him, through His word, through many prayers, through tons of conversation with Him. He wants a close personal relationship with each of us, that suits perfectly to who we are! That’s right God tailors your relationship by how much you give to this relationship between you and He. We set the pace of our relationship with Him, not the other way around. But Isn’t this all about searching and seeking to know the object of your desire better, the most important thing in our whole life?

We have a whole entire eternity to look forward to if we love God with every ounce of our being, but if we turn away {and do not let anyone fool you with vain lies that say you cannot be removed from the book of Life you most certainly can, and will be cast into hell for it} He will turn away from you, and Jesus will not confess your name before God the Father. God demands commands even that we love Him so that He may reward us lavishly forever. No two days the same everything new and amazing every moment for eternity. Peace and joy so overwhelming if we were in our mortal flesh we would disintegrate with the power of it.

But if we refuse and reject then an eternity of burning and suffering forever. Where worms eat you and never die, and you never die. When every opportunity you ever had of coming to the Lord and the knowledge of the truth, rides before your memory with palpable regret, forever and ever. Hating yourself knowing this is where you made yourself have to go. Knowing this is what you deserve for not wanting to be the Lord’s in this life. All for a short life that really amounted to no meaning at all in it, because you were so unhappy unsatisfied unfulfilled throughout this life and all you had to do was listen to those who tried so ardently to tell you you were in danger.

Yeah what an eternity that is!

Anyway back to the scriptures. Luke 14:25-35 25 And there went great multitudes with him: and he turned, and said unto them, 26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife,and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.
27 And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? 29 Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish it, all that behold it begin to mock him, 30 Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand?

32 Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace. 33 So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.34 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? 35 It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

When the Lord says he who has ears to hear let him hear, we really want to pay close attention. This is a cue for us to give our ears over to the Holy Spirit so He can fill us in. The Lord cue’s us in when we are supposed to pay extra special attention to something He has said with either, I tell you the truth, or repeating something 2 or 3 times. Verily Verily I say unto you is another cue to pay close attention to His words.

Throughout the word we can find these things in Jesus words. But what you can clearly see is in the word the Lord used very few words to get the message out. I honestly personally believe He did this so as to confuse and confound those who are not filled with the Holy Spirit. The bible is foolishness to the perishing, those who do not have the power of the Holy Spirit cannot get the rest of the meaning, because it is Holy Spirit discerned. The rest of the story get’s filled in (for me personally) as I study intensely the word for myself. Having no human being filling me in on the word and it’s meaning, is the only way I can do the word.

When I have heard others views, ideas and understanding, I always come to the conclusion that they do not understand the word. I cannot sit idly by and accept other’s teaching and must go study whatever topic half to death. Using tools for great in depth bible study is important no man’s ideas but verses that pertain to the same subject matter, works wonderfully. A great cross reference study bible is always a great tool. There is also sites I use that have wonderful cross reference bible verses on the side called, bible hub, and then one of my favorites is info.bible.com.

Looking back at those bible verses in Luke let’s go through them by threes? Jesus was sharing with a great amount of people before He went to the cross even, that we must pick up our cross and drop everything else and follow Him. If we cannot do that because of loyalties to our family and or friends then He tells us simply, you are not worthy of me. We should love Him so much that our love of others looks like hatred, when compared. Verses 25-27.

Verses 28-30 speak on the fact that before we would begin to build anything we would need to make sure we have enough to finish the project, or risk looking like a fool. The risks of looking like a fool are small when you think of the fact that starting in the Lord and not going on with Him forever till you either die or come to the end of this world, is a very poor idea. It shows that you were not really thinking of the possibility of being unable to complete your mission, for lack of trusting the Lord to do it all. We would not look bad to people, but to the Lord, and looking like a failure to the Lord is the worst thing that could happen to us.

He expects us to trust Him and obey Him, at all times. He expects us to come to Him who is capable beyond our human understanding, to handle everything for us by living in us and through us. He is not looking for part time children and or shared custody of us. He wants us to deliver ourselves over to His hands fully and completely, without reservation and without pulling ourselves in and out of that very capable hand, whenever we feel it is too much or whatever else would pull us away from Him. To be fully immersed in Him and building daily our relationship with Him.

We must dedicate time to Him and pursuing Him. Of course He knows we must work for a living and to do all things that pertain to life, but in Him is where strength courage and stamina is really realized. So that we walk through this life in the way He wants us to. Not allowing depression any quarter, not allowing our own weaknesses and or illnesses to slow us stop us, or bring us to a halt in our walk with Him. Which brings me to another point. Satan throws everything at us but the kitchen sink, we cannot allow him and his antics to derail our walk. We cannot allow feelings of hurt and anger to stop us from moving always forward in the Lord.

Death should not even slow us down, the death of our loved ones I mean. We do not mourn as the world mourns, 1 Thess 4:13-14. We sorrow of course when we lose one we love, but just pick up in the Lord trusting Him that your loved one is in His capable hands, and move forward, being built up and strengthened in Him. He takes our cares upon Himself if and when we allow Him to. Picking our own thoughts and feelings back up on a constant basis, we must repent of that, and drop it all at His feet again and again. We are human beings who make mistakes, and this is one of those huge mistakes that causes us grief and sorrow. Picking our problems back up and worrying them in our minds and hearts, is a great way to lose our joy and peace in the Lord.

Verses 31-33. Speaks about going to war and counting out how it will all go down. Basically when one is planning to go to war against another kingdom or government, or country, one would do intense study of one’s foe, and how many men he will come to meet you at war with. It is telling us plan in advance for every contingency, so as not to fall away and lose. In this case it is losing your eternal rewards and spiritual death occurs, when one leaves off the Lord and His will and ways, before the race (so to speak) is over, being called disqualified by the Lord, is a very scary thing.

We must put aside every desire we have every thought that is self-contained, and everything that we think in order to put Him inside us. If we walk away He will pull back, if we stay in Him, then He will remain in us and with us. We cannot afford to be cut off from the Lord, or our condemnation will be swift. In a vision I had a couple years ago now, I saw the children of God walking in His shadow and the forces of evil just on the outskirts of God’s shadow, waiting ever watching for those to step out of line, and then devouring them once they did step out from His shadow covering. It was horrifying to watch as the fear and horror and invasion of themselves occurred unto death.

These people, the look on their faces was unimaginable as they were consumed by evil, lest evil lose a new disciple back to the Lord, so they were destroyed immediately. I do not want to see that happen. Hell is chock full of good people, people who even read their bible thinking they were saved not knowing truth for themselves. Many people, not all but most people who claim Christ, do not know the first thing about being saved or about being born again and about living for the Lord, and not themselves.

Gay people molesters whatever you want to cook up in your mind as sin, none of these is more sin than any other thing. Sin is sin before the Father and he cannot look upon sin in any form. From the mildest in your mind to the most deplorable sin they are all sin and equal in the eyes of God. I love my gay friends and family, but am under no delusion they live to please their sinful flesh, they will go to hell. The same with liars and thieves and whore mongers murderers, sin is sin, and living without God means going to hell. Even those who are gay and claim Christ is theirs, they don’t know how wrong they are. Living for ourselves is not picking up your cross daily.

Living for God is self sacrificing. It is dropping your hopes dreams and mostly your fleshly desires at the door. Every morning when we awaken we renew our dedication to the Lord. A new day another day to get closer to God not living to fulfill your most base desires, but living to please Him, which is to love Him with all our heart soul and mind, and love our neighbors as ourselves. Truly I must confess the second one is so hard in this day and age, but we cannot afford to lose the love or we are worth nothing at all.

The Lord showed me many verses that show what happens if you walk away from Him.
Hebrews 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.
7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; 8 but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

John 15:1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;[a] and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. Read that carefully. Read it a few times taste it sound it out as you read it think on it and understand He will throw you in the fire if you walk away from Him.

He wants that we all repent confess our sins and ask forgiveness for them. When He sent Jesus, Jesus did not die so you could be a sinner forever more, He died so you can be set free from sin live a Holy life and be alive with Him forever more in the Kingdom in New Jerusalem. He died so you can be purified in and through Him. That you no longer live your life, but hand it back to Him as payment for His life.

God is not looking for anyone who is not interested in walking out their every moment of life in Him. He is looking for the most devoted bride He can find, no other will do for His son. He is not coming back right now because we are a big bunch of filthy people with our most amazing righteous works being as filthy as dirty rags. People think they are so good and don’t even know the Lord at all and or what is His will and ways, but they believe they will be removed any moment, how foolish to ignore the word of God.

Those people who claim Christ and show they are not His, are so blatantly not anywhere near the child of God they call themselves. The cannot imagine how very clear it is to see that they do not know the truth for themselves that they indeed have demons doctrines and false teachers mentalities. We must know the Lord for ourselves this is how He teaches us to walk in Him every step we take in this life.

We must be sold out to Him entirely body soul and heart. This is the only thing God accepts, is those whose whole life is not dedicated to pursuing joy and happiness on earth, but they who pursue God and seek more and more knowledge of Him daily. Their only mission in this life is to know Him more, to be moved closer to Him in spirit and heart. To walk in the very power that raised Christ from the dead. Not a powerless useless life all done in our own strength.

When we are sick that is satan working against us to slow us down. Ill health does not come from the Lord, it comes from the enemy, we are to rebuke it and cast it off of us, commanding it to leave us and then walk in the knowledge that in Christ is no illness, no infirmity! He is whole and complete and is not sick or feeble, so if He lives in us and through us, then we are His vessel. There is no holes so to speak in His pitcher. He overflows us with grace and knowledge and wisdom and we from that abundance pour out on others lives, deliberate pouring out so we do not miss our targeted empty glass, that just waits to be filled.

So in closing, Do not come to the Father thinking to use Him when you need Him, and then the rest of the time relegate Him to the back of your heart life and mind. He will allow you your free will, it is up to you to make sure you find out from the Father how not to falter. It is up to us to maintain our life in Him and grow our connection with Him. We control our relationship with the Father, He does not. We choose how close and how deep we go into this relationship with Him. But oh friends brothers sisters in Him, the rewards of being called His friend and Confidante are priceless and plentiful.

The Law Is Death, We Are Not Under The Law

posted by PrayerWarrior

As I was hearing from the Lord about doing this article I cannot tell you how many people came after me about this very subject I knew for sure the Lord wanted this done and now! I have not written for my blog for a long time but have found I just must do this now, as it was insane how inundated I have been by attacks for my not doing the law.

We are not under the law, we cannot be saved nor sanctified by the law. As a matter of fact those who have put themselves under the law again, have fallen from grace!! Gal 5:4 Here are some great scriptures to explain this understanding!

Acts 15:10, Now therefore why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?
Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
We only ever knew that we were sinning because of the law, which no one ever was able to live up to the standards of the law. Never was there anyone who could do it wholly and or perfectly thus the animal sacrifices and the times the Lord had set for the people to atone for their sins by the shedding of blood.

Jesus being the pure, sinless, flawless, unblemished, perfect lamb of God, was the one time only needed sacrifice, to free us from the letter of the law which was itself flawed. The law was just a foreshadowing of Our need for the Savior. Jesus work on the cross has set those who have accepted His sacrifice, and have repented of their sin and continually walk in contrition and repentance, free!

Romans 4:14-15 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: 15 because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. See here? If we continue to act out the law and hold ourselves up to the standard of the law, then grace is worthless and Jesus work was not according to you, enough to atone for your sins.
Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. How do people really fool themselves into thinking that this does not mean what it says? Unless the Lord says this is a parable it is meant to be taken literally.

Romans 7:1-12, Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? 2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

{I just have to add here, to those who were divorced before they became a Christian, When you repented and were baptized in the water, you died with Christ to your old life, and were born anew into the life of Christ, that life before your true repentant conversion, does not exist further. You are no longer alive to self, but now alive in Christ, as Gal 2:20 says no longer I who lives but Christ who lives in me. So the old you with it’s past sins died as surely as if your body were put in the grave!}

4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. 6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. 8 But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead. 9 For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died. 10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. 11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. 12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

It goes on to say that even though men had the law they kept sinning anyway, the law is to show that we need the savior because we cannot live up to the law. Paul was showing us in verses 13 through to the end, that in himself he could not do the law even though he wanted to do the law he could not for the things he did not want to do (not sin) he did anyway, and the things he did want to do he did not do in his own strength. But thank God for Christ who can do it all without sinning.

Romans 8:2-3 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

Romans 10:1-4 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. 2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God. 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

See the above? Christ put an end to the law. His finished work on the cross fulfilled the requirements of the law. It is finished is what He said! Meaning I have done all that needed to be done in order to save my people to bring them back into a close personal relationship with myself, that i may save them. He wrote now the laws on our hearts and without having to outwardly do them, we automatically know without being told how to live up to God’s standards by surrendering our lives to the Lord to be Lord over our lives to reign in every part of our lives.

Paul was hoping and pleading for Israel to become saved, not by doing the law which no man could do but by accepting Christ, that they might be saved not to go back and do the law but to move forward in Christ’s body. Okay the Lord just said to me this very simple thing, if Christ is the head of the body and you are a part of the body why are you contrarily not allowing Christ the head, to lead the body? Why is Christ the head on the body with the brain, not then allowed to control all members of that body?

He is sinless He is righteous, He is perfect and it is no longer you who lives, {an island separate from the rest of the body, which belongs to Christ} but we are all to walk as one in Him. He does not do the Law, He is the law, He is the word. So our freedom from the law comes by walking in Him. He is the Sabbath rest, walking in Him makes us keeping the Sabbath without outwardly observing one day. Besides which, I personally feel every single day that I am worshiping Him and loving Him, no one day is holier than any other!

1 Corinthians 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
2 Corinthians 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraved in stone, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away: 8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather more glorious?

2 Corinthians 3:9-11, 14,15, For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed in glory.10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excelleth. 11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.
14 but their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ. 15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart.
Do you supposed Christian who is under the law by your own choosing, have that veil upon your heart? You do! You are blinding yourself to truth! Repent of your not believing Christ was and is enough!

Galatians 2:16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified., 19 For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God! Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
Galatians 3:1-4,10-13 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4 Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.

10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Gal 3:16-19, 16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. 18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise. 19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. This shows us and means Abraham was promised all of the land He was promised the earth as His inheritance, not because of the law, but because he believed the Lord when He spoke to him.

Gal 3:21-29 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. 23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. 24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. 26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Galatians 5:1-4 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Ephesians 2:15 having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;

Philippians 3:4-8, 4 Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. 7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

1 Timothy 1:8-11 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; 9 knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Hebrews 7:16-19 who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. 17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest forever after the order of Melchisedec. 18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof. 19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.

Hebrews 8:7-8 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. 8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: He was talking about His death and resurrection!
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. Heb 10:1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

To try and keep the laws is foolishness of the highest order. We are shown repeatedly through Paul the apostle to the gentiles, that the law is not good. James Tells us if you transgress one part of the law, lie steal cheat do the Sabbath wrong, then you are guilty of transgressing the whole of the law, and are then guilty of it all. Look the word tells us over and over again that the law is for those who are not in the Lord they will be held to the standards of the law but not those who are in Christ. Jesus justifies us not the law. Jesus stands before the Father and says can’t hold one sin against this one he/she is mine! I paid the price for them.

All this said friends, that does not however give us the right to go and sin for if we willfully sin that is considered walking all over the son of God and you will be repaid! It remains that those who walk all over the son will burn for eternity. Is eternity worth it to you to be wrong? You might instead of seeking men’s thoughts and ideas about the Lord and all of His teaching in the word, seek the lord in prayer. Always asking for forgiveness of your sins that your prayers may be heard!

Blessings in the Lord

Tasted, And Partook

posted by PrayerWarrior

What do these words mean? To taste, is to sample, to put some in your mouth. I like this one too, to perceive in any way. So that to me says tried! Partake, to take or have a part in; share. So to taste the Lord and to partake pretty much says you were a part of the Holy Spirit. To have been enlightened is, to give intellectual or spiritual light to; instruct; impart knowledge to:

In the Word we are told in Hebrews 6: 4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

Let’s really break this down, because I want everyone to understand that this is no joke here, this is a very serious, and very important thing to understand.

You cannot partake of the Holy Spirit, unless you were under Him, in Him, or immersed in Him. You cannot have tasted God and the gifts of the Holy Spirit, if you are not truly His. These are not given to those who are not truly saved.

You cannot be apostate unless you were truly in Him! Look also at John 15:1-8 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

So if we do not stay attached to the vine which is Jesus Christ we wither and die and are only good for the fire. That speaks of walking away. One cannot sin willfully after having received forgiveness of sins and then expect to go to heaven.

2 peter 2:20-22 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. For it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from the holy commandment delivered to them. What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”

The word is showing us over and over again our conditional salvation. Romans 5:9-10 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. Or if we die in Him and go to heaven.

look also at Matt 7:21-23, 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

How can someone who is not a partaker of the Holy Spirit cast out demons and or prophecy? Jesus Himself said satan cannot or will not cast out a demon as that would be fighting against himself. Only those who have the Holy Spirit can prophesy or cast out demons so they had to have known Him and truly been in the Spirit for them to do those things!

Also notice Jesus did not deny that they did such, He told them they practice lawlessness. it is now worse for them than had they not known Him at all.

What no one seems to understand is the churches get judged first it is not exactly churches, it is the spirit of that particular sect of the Ekklesia, the body the chosen elect ones, (us the body of the Lord), that gets judged first, and if you are of the body you are a Christian! But they are going to be kicked out of the body, because they will not repent.
I don’t know why many people choose to overlook this, the judgement of the body comes before the judgement’s against the world, the ones who do not serve the Lord, those who have chosen against Jesus! Then those who were and have been in the body of believers, but for some reason lost their way, and they refuse to repent of their sins.

Study the first 3 chapters of Revelation seriously deeply, and see what Jesus is saying to those churches? These are not past tense churches, they did exist in a physical location before. They now do not have a physical location or area of the globe, now these churches exist in the spirit. Revelation has not begun just yet. I mean who knows I do believe the body is being judged right now.

The body is going to lose some members. How can we think one can not walk away from the promise when it has been done before? And God is never changing?
God has not changed one thing about Himself and who and what He is and is about.
The whole of everything was designed by Him He knows everything and shows us and tells us over and over again He does not change.

He knows when time would begin and time would end. He saw and knew our every moment, from before the foundations of the earth. He knows our death date and how we are going to die. He knows and knew long before He even made the world everything that would transpire.

He knows who chose Him, and He loved them unconditionally and they walked away from it, just like the devils or demons did, and just like the Israelites who were killed by the Lord our God, before reaching the promised land! People are still free to leave Him. He says He would not be the one to leave us! Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

He will never leave nor forsake us, but that does not mean people wont and haven’t forsaken Him. How can anyone think that God has changed in this aspect, even though we are under grace, people just like angels and in the OT, still choose to walk away from Him.

I cannot fathom that myself, even if one backslides a bit they are always forgiven upon repentance, and taken back into the fold. A name does not get blotted out just like that, it takes a lot to not be given another chance. God knows who is going to, and who will not stay His.

I could easily speak on the book of Revelation but no I am talking about judgment and no such thing as once saved always saved. The promises of God are conditional, all of them, they have always been. The condition is you stay in Him no matter what. Even if it means death.

Once saved always saved is not a fact unless one walks non stop in Him. But those who walk away, have at one time, walked with Him in Him and had the gifts they were true Christians. Anyone at any time can choose to walk away it is still free will. I cannot myself fathom a moment in life without Him, but that’s me and obviously you but to say people can never lose their salvation is just wrong. God does not stop loving no matter what, but just because He loves us no end, does not mean He will hold us, against our will, to Him.

Why would we be told to work out our OWN salvation with fear and trembling? Because we could easily walk away from Him. We could get carried away by the cares of the world! We must remain humble and contrite. There are many who served the Lord with everything they have, at one time, but many of them walked away.

The Lord, He told me a while back, 1 Cor 5:6, Gal 5:9 a little leaven, leavens the whole lump. What man teaches wrong and believes wrong, colors their thinking as to the truth of the Lord.

We are going to go through insane hell for one purpose! To show us rather we are devoted to the Lord or not! God knows who is and who is not His, but we do not even know that ourselves! When it comes down to insane testing, even painful testing, He knows, who will and who will not remain in Him. But He wants that each of us would in fact know for ourselves, truly if we are 100% in Him. He does not want slackers.

Fiery trials are for our good to make us even stronger in our trust of God, we better expect to go through the mill and then back through it. As Paul says in Acts 14:22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

What are we heading for after the tribulation? the millennial Kingdom!! So through MUCH tribulation we must enter it, and still stay in Him. For these temporary afflictions, reap for us an amazing reward we cannot even fathom in the end. Many will find the cost entirely too much to bear, and fall away. True Christians, no less!

It is only the church of the day that says stop being militant! We are soldiers in the Lord’s army we must be diligently about the fathers works. As we see in James, faith without works is dead!! It is not just crowns that will be taken away from us, it is the promises of the Father if we do not keep on doing our part until we die! We are to be about speaking truth no matter the cost to us and it is (the cost) heavy at all times

Our own families turn against us but we are not concerned by that, for the one reason that Jesus said, it would happen and we would be hated by the world for speaking and being in the truth. We are soldiers in the Lord’s army and are going to be crusading throughout the world, those who are mentally emotionally spiritually and physically able to withstand and persevere, in the worst times the world has ever seen. Evil walking among us, with us.

They tell us we are haters, no we are not, we love and so we do not want to see anyone go to hell, not anyone, so we keep speaking truth and exposing liars. People have got to know the truth. Lies and following them blindly, or knowingly even, gets one hell. Jesus is truth and we have to know Him and all of the truth, that is knowing Him.
I am passionate about the truth. It is my life and the Life in the Lord, is knowing who and what is not of God at all times, and making others aware of it with truth.

So people who promote pre tribulation rapture and people who tell people no no you cannot lose your salvation are liars. That is heretical, and it is something that must be exposed. And then most people just say you are judgmental, that is not judging that is showing them with the bible, the scriptures that prove we must be busy working occupying until He comes. Not with the next church social crap or gimmick of the church. But with real repentant revivals.

This country this whole world is a complete wreck and we can know all the truth of the word of God, Because the Holy Spirit does not lie so we study the word diligently and do not for one moment allow someone to speak lies to us when the Holy Spirit has spoken the truth to us through the word of God. That is why if i do not agree with someone i do not go to their church.

The Lord gave me Ezekiel 34 not long ago! read it and understand. Then look at other countries Christianity, and see most of their Christianity is real and deep God is all they have, and still they cling to the cross. They are being beheaded for their faith, right now.

2 Pet 2:4-11 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; 5 and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the ungodly; 6 and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly;

7 and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct of the wicked 8 (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 9 then the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, 10 and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority. They are presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries, 11 whereas angels, who are greater in power and might, do not bring a reviling accusation against them before the Lord.

The Lord is so good but He is not going to look the other way when one sins. I submit to you the truth that God is never changing. No I have heard so many many Christians claim they know this truth, then explain how we are no longer under the Lord of the Old testament just because Jesus came.

We can see without question this is not true. God has not changed how He deals with anyone since the angels chose satan over Him He has always dealt the same way. People are lower than the angels, He did not put up with angels departing and disobedience, He will not put up with people doing so either. Let’s look at Ezekiel 18:24 “But when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty and the sin which he has committed, because of them he shall die.

25 “Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel, is it not My way which is fair, and your ways which are not fair? 26 When a righteous man turns away from his righteousness, commits iniquity, and dies in it, it is because of the iniquity which he has done that he dies. 27 Again, when a wicked man turns away from the wickedness which he committed, and does what is lawful and right, he preserves himself alive.

28 Because he considers and turns away from all the transgressions which he committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 29 Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, is it not My ways which are fair, and your ways which are not fair?

30 “Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways,” says the Lord God. “Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!”

Now i want you all to think about this as well. We who come to the Lord through Christ are now joint heirs with Abraham! Understand one who accepts Christ is truly a chosen elect one. No ones comes to the Lord our God Lest the Lord calls them! Galatians 3:29

Then let’s look at Ezekiel 33, and see what it says in there. I want to lay a little ground work here first to make sure people understand. We who work in the Lord and do His will and warn people, are doing what the Lord tells us to do. That is to be watchmen to watch and in Ezekiel 33 the Lord explains concisely to Ezekiel that if he does not warn of danger, anyone who is lost, and not warned by the watchmen first, their blood is on their heads.

I dearly love the two chapters of Ezekiel 33 and 34. 34 is all about shepherds who do not lead the Lord’s sheep but instead take advantage of and harm in all their greed. And that the Lord Himself will care for His own and be their shepherd the only one they need.

Back to EZ 33. 12 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the children of your people: ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression; as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall because of it in the day that he turns from his wickedness; nor shall the righteous be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’ 13 When I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, but he trusts in his own righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous works shall be remembered; but because of the iniquity that he has committed, he shall die.

14 Again, when I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, 15 if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 16 None of his sins which he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

17 “Yet the children of your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ But it is their way which is not fair! 18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall die because of it. 19 But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he shall live because of it. 20 Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, I will judge every one of you according to his own ways.”

Now keeping in mind at all times that God is never changing, not ever, not in who He is, and not in how He deals with the people of the world. Those who are His, and those who are not, how can anyone then convince themselves, that the Lord has changed one drip drop of Himself? I tell you He has not changed, and it is people tickling itching ears. Better yet it is satan saying that same old tired line, that got Eve at the start of time. Surely you won’t die!

Damnable Heresies Of Our Day 2 Jesus Is God

posted by PrayerWarrior

The second part of this study I want to show is Proofs that God Himself claimed He would come as a man, and that man was and is Jesus. This particular study the Lord has shown me over and over again Himself as God. I am excited for this one. I have many verses Old and New Testaments. I prayed and asked the Lord for His wisdom in doing these, that I may say something that will clear this up in people’s minds. I honestly do not understand why people have such a hard time accepting God at His word. He says He is Jesus, He says as Jesus He is God. What more proof do we need? I hope you all pray before reading these articles for understanding.

Think about first of all how God said if man were to see Him in all of who He is, we would die! Exodus 33:20 But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” 21 And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. 22 So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. 23 Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.” We cannot look upon the face of God.

Then in 1 Timothy 6:15-16 here also it speaks of Him not being seen, as well as being Jesus. We know clearly Jesus has been seen, but look how Paul explains Him here. 15 which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power Amen. Now look Paul thinks of Jesus as God. It is very clear and right in our face. The only way to look past this is without thinking about it, which is no way to study the word. We must meditate on the word, which means take it deep down in and ponder it in your heart.

When the Lord showed me this next part I was blown away, how very awesome is our God? Awesomeness has no other name than the Lord our God. 2 Peter 3:3-9, 1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you 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 Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. 8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Then the Lord showed me this in Exodus 32. This is what happened when Moses left the Israelites too long. They built themselves a calf and some, many actually began worshiping it. It is just like in Peter how people think that they have been forgotten about, and began doing those things which are called idolatry. They actually said this is the god that brought us out of Egypt. Read the whole of it, it is very interesting. It is as though the Lord was saying this is what is happening these days. Men are listening to men, creating their own sort of god to worship. But the Lord told me this is not me they are worshiping. They are worshiping a god of their own making, a god who does not exist!

People God is God and He does not change. Men creating strange doctrines and strange gods are still idolaters and false teachers. It is when men tell me or even women, here let me explain to you so you understand, that I am thinking no thanks I am outta here. Like I said in the first part of this article, if you have to have people explain to you what the bible says, and you have to do mental gymnastics, then you’re no longer getting the truth. The Holy Spirit will teach you everything you need to know, and it is only the absolute truth. Discernment comes with the Holy Spirit being poured out on you or in you. There is no other sense than God sense dear brothers and sisters. Men are men and that is all there is to that. If they cannot worship I truth then let them deal with the consequences you keep yourself holy and pure.

Now back to the many verses the Lord led me to. They will be all over the place in no special order this is how the Lord showed me them. 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” This one clearly Jesus is telling us he is Alpha and Omega. This needs no explanation. Phil 2:5-8 5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Clearly says he was in heaven and became a man!

Deut 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. He is one! Isaiah 48:16-17 16 “Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, I was there.
And now the Lord God and His Spirit Have sent Me.” 17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go. Hmmm picture becoming clearer? John 15:26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. So He Jesus can send the Holy Spirit, why because He is God!

Matt 28:19, this verse shows us we must call upon the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit when baptizing. If they are not one, why then do we need to call on the three? John 10:30-33 30 I and My Father are one.” 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him. 32 Jesus answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?” 33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself God.” Jesus made out to be God, and they wanted to stone Him. He did not correct them!

John 8:58. With this verse I hear the bells going off, ding ding ding. 58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” Moses was told to tell the Israelites I Am has sent you. Jesus is not a liar He spoke nothing but truth at all times. To claim He is God would either be a horrible lie or it is the truth. Jesus is named the way the truth and the life. John 4:26, 8:24, 8:28. Read those as well. Col 1:15-17 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. This deserves the verse in Isaiah where the Lord tells he shares His glory with no one. Isaiah 48:11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it;
For how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another. Hmmm Yet we know Jesus was glorified! John 13:31.

Acts 20 speaks of false teachers and savage wolves coming in from among our own. People please do not allow yourselves to be led astray with strange doctrines. Just because we cannot understand our infinite God with our finite minds, is no excuse. You had better get busy praying for understanding in the Holy Spirit. God if He came down as Himself, would have killed us all, so He worked around that, and made himself a man, to purchase us back from sin. He does not conform to your ideas of who He should be. No He has a purpose for everything He does and we cannot see that because we are not infinite yet.

1 Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. Immanuel God with us is how Isaiah was shown Jesus long before He came. Isaiah 7:14 Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Look at that, Mighty God! Can it get any more plain? The Lord said keep going. So we keep going.

Matt 1:23 23 “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Luke 7:16 Then fear came upon all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us”; and, “God has visited His people.” This was when Jesus raised the dead boy and gave him back to his mother. Jesus did not correct the people. Do not think within yourself He was being polite, Jesus being God is no respecter of persons. He spoke truth at all times and allowed no one any misconceptions.

John 13:13. You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. Again Jesus did not correct them and also added I Am! Mark 14:62 Jesus said, “I am. And you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” John 14:7,9-10 7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

Again with the bells I almost hear them ringing. John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was. John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” 2 Cor 4:4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. Col 2:8-10 8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Heb 1:2-3. 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. Heb 1:8-9 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”

Titus 2:13-14 read this carefully and ponder it you who also believe that you cannot lose your salvation. 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Purifying us for zealous good works, that is seriously important to realize and believe. That he came to purify us but we can sully all that beautiful work He did for us at the cross. By being like dogs who go back to their vomit. Just like pigs who go back to wallow in the mud. They become filthy again, and the dogs eating their vomit, are only making themselves ill again.

Malachi 4:2 But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves. Isaiah 8:8 He will pass through Judah,
He will overflow and pass over, He will reach up to the neck; And the stretching out of his wings
Will fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanuel. This is speaking of God and Jesus as God. Jeremiah 23:5-6 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness; A King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.6 In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell safely; Now this is His name by which He will be called: THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Luke 5:20-24 20 When He saw their faith, He said to him, “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, “Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” 22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, He answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Rise up and walk’? 24 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” Again Jesus said He is God. Now a mere man cannot hear peoples thoughts Jesus could and did and we see that a few times throughout the NT.

Col 1:15-26 15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, 20 and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has reconciled 22 in the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above reproach in His sight— 23 if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.

24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, 26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. Straight up easy to understand, He is God!

We are almost done with this one. Yay!! I love it this gives me such warmth head to toe to be made to understand the simplicity of the Word. Which is foolishness to those who are perishing. Guess those who say Jesus is not God are perishing. Daniel 7:13-14 “I was watching in the night visions,
And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. 14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.

Luke 8:38-39 38 Now the man from whom the demons had departed begged Him that he might be with Him. But Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 “Return to your own house, and tell what great things God has done for you.” And he went his way and proclaimed throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him. Luke 17:17-19 17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.” Again Jesus claims to be God. All these claims of Jesus and the apostles that He is God how can we not believe in truth and believe He who is truth God the Father God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. If they both have control of the Holy Spirit it means they are one.

God does not mess around I know that people for some reason seem to have no fear of the Lord dear family in Him you must have fear of the Lord for that is the way in which we will learn to be Holy as he is Holy. We will learn wisdom and knowledge and strength by being in Him and he in us. If we let go of that which we hold fast to, we will lose our place in His kingdom and He will blot your name out of the book. You must if you do not understand have the Holy Spirit be immersed in Him. It is not what comes with salvation. Salvation marks you as His but if you do not believe Him in truth and in Spirit then you have believed for nothing. Simply believing in Him is not enough the devils believe and tremble James 2:19.

Do not listen to mere men they are fallible and not responsible for how and what you believe. You will be held accountable to God for your right and wrong beliefs. Believe in truth only truth. Believe in the word of God and believe and pray for the Holy Spirit to show you this and to rid you of your taught and or preconceived notions. He is faithful to remove those from you. I know this from firsthand experience. I prayed Lord show me the truth about the tribulation that I may never fall away walk away or choose to disown you. Take away all I have been taught and all that I am holding onto as gospel and show me clearly. He is Faithful and did that for me.

Love in Christ, Tammy
