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!

Lot Was A Righteous Man!

posted by PrayerWarrior

You know it vexes me no end that people think Lot was saved only to please Abraham. Lot was a righteous man we are told in Peter. Lot did not partake of the immorality of Sodom and Gomorrah. He was vexed by their sins and their disgusting way of life. So He lived among the heathen and the depraved, we do too! Look here is the meaning of vex = [veks] verb 1.to irritate; annoy; provoke: His noisy neighbors often vexed him. 2.to torment; trouble; distress; plague; worry: Lack of money vexes many. 3.to discuss or debate (a subject, question, etc.) with vigor or at great length: to vex a question endlessly without agreeing. 4.to disturb by motion; stir up; toss about. 5.to afflict with physical pain.

I imagine Lot standing in the door way of his house looking at all going on in and around the town he lived in, shaking his head in consternation, much like we ourselves do at all that is going on around us.. Look he was a business man he was wealthy and prosperous. And what does anyone care where their money comes from? Being a business owner, I do not care if the people who patronize my business are sinners or saved, I will take all their money for services rendered. Of course I enjoy those people who are the Lords and who come and visit, but they are treated no differently than anyone else. Besides which, I never know whose mind might be changed from sinner to saint, by my loving them.

Let’s just reason together and study the life of Lot, in Genesis it does not say too much, but let’s see what the Lord would show us, and have us know. Gen 12:4-5 4 So Abram departed as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran. 5 Then Abram took Sarai his wife and Lot his brother’s son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people whom they had acquired in Haran, and they departed to go to the land of Canaan. So they came to the land of Canaan. (So let’s then look at this, the Lord told Abram to leave his fathers land and go to the land the Lord would show him. He took lot with him. Does not say anything as of yet about righteous or not.)

Abram at this time was coming upon the land of Egypt and knowing his wife Sarai was stunningly beautiful he was sure that the king or the men of Egypt, would have him killed to take his wife as their own. Abram lied, Yet Abram was righteous! Think of David and his adultery, as well as then having the man killed to hide his perfidy, yet the Lord called him (David) a man after the Lords own heart. You sin I sin we all sin, but the difference is we ask forgiveness. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone, you can’t and neither can I.

Gen 13:1-4 Then Abram went up from Egypt, he and his wife and all that he had, and Lot with him, to the South.2 Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. 3 And he went on his journey from the South as far as Bethel, to the place where his tent had been at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4 to the place of the altar which he had made there at first. And there Abram called on the name of the Lord. 5-7 Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. 6 Now the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. 7 And there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s livestock and the herdsmen of Lot’s livestock. The Canaanites and the Perizzites then dwelt in the land. So there was strife between abrams men and Lot’s but none between Abram and Lot, they reasoned together to work this out no anger no hard feelings.

Gen 13:8 So Abram said to Lot, “Please let there be no strife between you and me, and between my herdsmen and your herdsmen; for we are brethren. 9 Is not the whole land before you? Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left.” 10 And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. 11 Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. 12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. (Still though it mentions that the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked, still no mention of Lot being a sinner or anything of the sort.)

Gen 14 speaks of Lot being kidnapped and held prisoner, and Abram goes and rescues Lot. Still no mention at all of Lot being bad, as a matter of fact the kings that won this war against Sodom and Gomorrah took all of Lot’s goods live stock and everything he owned.11 Then they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their provisions, and went their way.12 They also took Lot, Abram’s brother’s son who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed. 14:14 Now when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his three hundred and eighteen trained servants who were born in his own house, and went in pursuit as far as Dan. 15 He divided his forces against them by night, and he and his servants attacked them and pursued them as far as Hobah, which is north of Damascus. 16 So he brought back all the goods, and also brought back his brother Lot and his goods, as well as the women and the people.

Look at that huh? Abram had 318 trained servants, not soldiers and they defeated the 5 kingsand all their men, who had just won out against four kings. NICE! Nothing more is mentioned of Lot for a little while till chapter 19. In chapter 18 the Lord who had just visited with Abraham was thinking within Himself that He would and should share with Abraham that He was there on a mission to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. For the wickedness of it was so great, that the cries coming from within it, reached heaven. I do honestly believe it was the Holy Spirit visiting with Abraham for we know men cannot live upon seeing the Lord our God. Chapter 19 is where we see Lot mentioned again.let’s then read the story and see if you can see where Lot might have shown himself to be a wicked and or sin filled man.

Gen 19:1-4 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them,he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. 2 And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.” 3 But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate. 4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.” Lot then offers his two daughters up instead of the Lord’s host.

This was not a sin it makes no mention of Lot being a sinner or doing anything wrong he was making a major and bold offer. Though I am sure he did hope in his heart, these disgusting vile men would not accept this offer. Would we not do something similar in order to protect these which we knew were glowing glorious beings from the Lord? Let’s go on. 6 So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.” (Not to mention there was no law as of yet. Morals were inbred in people and if they acted against that then it was sin. The Lord built us with morals from the beginning.)

9 And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” (They called Lot a judgmental jerk in essence in these verses.They then wanted to do some serious damage to Lot, but the angels who were there struck those men blind after ripping Lot into the house with them. Lot was sure he was doing right by the Lord and the Lord certainly did more than right in His dealings with Lot.) So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.

12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking. 15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. I can only guess that Lot was thinking of all he owned as well as his other daughters and everything going to be utterly and completely lost to him, which is why the angels had to actually grab his hand and pull him into action.

17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” 18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.” 21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.” (Here now is where it get’s interesting. The Lord would not ever save an unrighteous man. He never has before.)

23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. 26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. She must have looked back with longing for her life that she was leaving behind, not to mention her children who were going to be destroyed due to their lack of trusting their father and or father in-law. The fact that Lot’s wife was disobedient to what she was told straight up, do not look back, cannot be missed in this as well. Disobedience is death brothers and sisters. To fool yourselves into believing that God does not expect perfect obedience is pure folly on anyone’s part. Jesus mentions something to this effect in Luke 14:33, So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.

27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt. (Now here is where people get all self righteous and hypocritical is in the rest of Lot’s story. In chapter 19 we see what became of Lot and his two daughters.) 30 Then Lot went up out of Zoar and dwelt in the mountains, and his two daughters were with him; for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar. And he and his two daughters dwelt in a cave. 31 Now the firstborn said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man on the earth to come in to us as is the custom of all the earth. So they devised a plan. This was not Lot’s plan, and nowhere does it say that He sinned or did anything against the Lord.

32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.” 33 So they made their father drink wine that night. (Now think on this for a moment, the man had lost all he had everything he owned he was now poor and destitute, his wife became a pillar of salt.He lost his other children, this is how his daughters would have been able to have him drink wine. I can only imagine they were cajoling, come father no more crying just drink some wine to make you forget for a little while that you may rest.) And the firstborn went in and lay with her father, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.34 It happened on the next day that the firstborn said to the younger, “Indeed I lay with my father last night; let us make him drink wine tonight also, and you go in and lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.”35 Then they made their father drink wine that night also. And the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know when she lay down or when she arose.He had no clue what happened. And though I do not want to sound like a broken record there were no laws at that time. How could Lot be breaking laws if there wre none?

Another fact I want to bring up is this, Abraham married his half sister. Same father different mother.19:36 Thus both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father. 37 The firstborn bore a son and called his name Moab; he is the father of the Moabites to this day. 38 And the younger, she also bore a son and called his name Ben-Ammi; he is the father of the people of Ammon to this day. If anyone sinned in this it was the two daughters. They produced sons both of them who became rulers and their ancestors still to this day rule the lands they had taken as their own. (Ammon is the capitol city of Jordan in our modern day, and Moab is also in Jordan. Now think on these verses by Peter whom the Holy Spirit filled with knowledge and wisdom, as well as remembrance for all that Jesus told the Apostles.)

2 Peter 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. Let’s see God did not spare anyone who was immoral and unrighteous. No God will not ever save anyone for anyone else’s sake.

This clearly spells out if you are not living for the Lord, working your best for Him, and trying with all you have not to sin, you are doomed! The angels who are so much higher than we are I mean they are in the very presence of God Himself were not spared for their siding with satan, what makes you lowly human think he will spare you? Grace sets us free from bondage of sin but if you go back to it you have re-enslaved yourself. Your name will be blotted out of the book. Lot was a righteous man to say he was not and the Lord saved him anyway is pure garbage and has no part of it in the truth. God will not ever esteem any man above Himself. God knows us better than we know ourselves, and knows humans only see what He has found it good to show them. Now you will not lose your salvation if you repent of your sins, but repentance is an ongoing thing through out our lives. The Holy Spirit will clearly show us what we are doing wrong, he will sear your conscience, to bring you to the realization that this is not acceptable. It is when you just keep sinning and vex the Holy Spirit that you will once for all time lose your salvation.

God knows us as I said, better than we know ourselves, you cannot fool the Lord. When I am having a hard time with something then I cry out to the Lord, help me see Lord the error that is causing me to put doors in between us, and He does. We must continually as long as we sin ask forgiveness. Nothing with the Lord is taken for granted though He knows your thoughts and will most times answer before you ask, He still expects you to ask. It is the same with forgiveness, you must always ask for it no matter how much you have sinned, or how little it is always best as Jesus said, to ask forgiveness when He told the disciples of the perfect prayer that was one of the things He said was good to pray. In Fact He quantifies that part in the verse right after the perfect prayer, Look here at Matthew 6 verses 9-15.

9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. 14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Then you can also look at the parable of the servant who was forgiven his debts and then went out and gave hell to one who owed him. Then all he had was taken from him and he was thrown into prison, never to be forgiven again, Matthew 18:21-35. Look people when thinking to yourself is this sin or not well all you have to do is compare it to love, does love think this, does love look at this, does love feel this, does love do this? If the answer is no then if you do it that is sin. Love is now what we measure sin against. Let’s not forget love covers a multitude of sin. 1 Peter 4:8.

If you love you will not cheat, steal, lie, be jealous of, you will not kill, nor blaspheme, you will not spread around rumors or gossip. As the time get’s closer and closer for the tribulation we are going to find loving so much the harder, we will be vexed like Lot was on all sides. We are all vexed as it is, and it is just going to get worse and worse, if we lose the Love we have lost the salvation, given it up, passed it out of our grasp or understanding. We must measure our every thought word and deed by the measure of love. If love would not do it then you had better not do it either. Lot would have been persecuted to death had the angels not grabbed him out of that angry mob. They were horribly angry with Lot because he judged them all the time, they said it not me! Lot was a righteous man, He loved the Lord so much that he was willing to sacrifice his two daughters to the men of S&G, in order to save the messengers of God. He recognized their perfection and bowed low to them as did Abraham. Sinners do not recognize that, and would not bow humbly down before the workers of the Lord. We are now in what can be called the pre tribulation period. Do not be surprised at the painful ordeals we are going to go through, and even expect and praise the Lord for the trials He will bring on you before the tribulation, to build you into a fruitful child of God.

Do not look to your brother sister friend, mother father, nor your spouse to help you understand what comes upon us all. The relationship between you and the Lord is a very personal one. In fact you can call it a customized relationship, because the Lord knows how to speak to you, to help you understand in the very best way. He has preparation in mind for you. It is all in His word and then there is the outside of the bible knowledge that He pours upon your heart that let’s you know what is coming. He is so faithful and so worthy of praise and honor. When you trust Him in anything, He will show you over and over again why it is good to trust in Him. To believe that Lot was not righteous and the Lord saved Him anyway, I have to ask what God is it you believe in? Because the God of the bible has never and will never save someone who is not righteous. Let me help ingrain this thought in your mind. He sent a piece of Himself to this earth to live as a man, He humbled Himself in the form of a man and came to this earth to save us and bring us back to Himself.

He sent Jesus to die and when Jesus was in process of dying for our sins, taking our place, paying the price of it, God the Father, turned away from His own son, His own self, that is how much He can not look upon sin. He sent Himself the piece of His human self, to hell to pay the price for becoming sin, but Jesus was victorious and was raised from the dead, taking the keys of hell with Him to have dominion over it forever more. If He did not spare Jesus in becoming our sin, why would He spare you?

Levitical Prophecies And The End Of The Age

posted by PrayerWarrior

The book of Leviticus is loaded with laws that had to be adhered to, to keep the Israelite’s in the constant presence of God. There were so many laws and offerings and sacrifices that had to be made on a daily basis,that the people had a hard time to follow them all. That was the Priests job. The Levite’s were the priests,who had to make sure that the daily sacrifices,weekly sacrifices,and monthly,and yearly sacrifices were adhered to. That’s why they are called the Levitical laws, because the Levite’s had to make sure it was all carried out, the way Moses had informed them they must be carried out.

Here are a few of the different types of sacrifices that had to be made. There were, burnt-offerings,drink-offerings, meat-offerings, and thank-offerings , sin-offerings and trespass-offerings. In the first 7 chapters of Leviticus the drink offering is not mentioned. The reason I am sharing this particular information is I want to show that since Jesus came we are no longer required to do these types of sacrifices to honor the Lord and to atone for sins. Jesus was and is the one time only, needed sacrifice. I will explain this all further later on.

Leviticus is also an explanation for the sacrifices we will be required to make in the millennial kingdom that is to come. I cannot personally as of this time, figure out why we will once again be required to make sacrifices in the millennial kingdom. Since Jesus paid all the price for us already. But I am planning to do, an in depth study on this particular thing, so as to get a better understanding. Once I have an understanding of it, I will happily share my findings with you all.

The reasons I have for assuming the sacrifices will resume in the Millennial kingdom, is Ezekiel chapter 40:39-41 states there are burnt offerings and such in the third temple. I know that these are millennial sacrifices due to the fact that God is ordering them. When in other scriptures the Lord said he will laugh at their worthless sacrifices in the end times. In the book of Malachi it speaks of this. That is because Jesus is the one time only sacrifice needed. There is no other name in which we can be cleansed. He was the drink offering,the blood sacrifice and atonement. The Jews do not recognize Jesus as the messiah. So they will resume their sacrificing once the 7 year treaty is made with Israel,by the beast system or the antichrist. We know in the middle of the treaty that the antichrist will stop the sacrifices from being made.

We do not however know what kind of temple, this temple that these sacrifices take place in, is going to be. We cannot for one minute assume that the temple that will be built in Jerusalem in the end times will be a very big one or even a God sanctioned one. The temple in Ezekiel chapter 40 and 43 is going to be a wonderful temple in the millennial kingdom. Any temple made in our times, would not be a sanctioned one of the Lord. Why would it be? When the Jews did not recognize the time of their visitation by their Messiah! That is why Israeli’s were dispersed through out the world after Jesus death and the destruction of the second temple. Because they did not accept their Messiah sent by God.

Leviticus chapter 26:18 tells us, then I will act with wrathful hostility against you, and I, even I, will punish you seven times for your sins. then in verse, 41 which made me hostile toward them so that I sent them into the land of their enemies–then when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they have paid for their sin, I will remember my covenant with Jacob. So basically due to their disobedience and their even killing His son the one time sacrifice,they were once again dispersed through out the world. Their sacrifices were no more.

We know that Israel was reborn as a country, as of 1948. We know or have been told in the word that the Lord was going to bring them back to Israel from all over the world. The Jewish people would inhabit their lands once again. They are doing that now. We still have to see a huge exodus of Jews heading back home to their homeland,though there are many there already, it is estimated that a mere 42% of the worlds Jews live in Israel. So another 58% must head back to Israel. I do believe we will see that as more and more of the world turn against Israel in the not too distant future.

So many people do not realize that Israel is at the center of all the end time prophecies. It amazes me how many people, who call themselves Christians, do not understand that we must stand with Israel. God said I will bless those who bless you oh Israel,and curse those who curse you. America is now turning their back on Israel, and I am waiting for calamities to befall us soon. We cannot hope to get away with tearing apart Israeli’s, verbally and get away with it. Now we are apparently according to our president,(and I use that term loosely , President) trying to put sanctions on Israel,and blaming them for the troubles that are befalling them,and trying to make them pay for the troubles that have fallen upon them. It disgusts me no end to watch this. Our president is standing with the muslims who wish nothing more than to see Israel be destroyed.

We need to be praying for Israel,and for our leaders to stop this nonsense of treating Jews like they are a pariah and the cause of all earthly problems. God said them “And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it” Zech12:3 We see the middle east in absolute chaos right now, and it is only going to be getting worse and worse until the end of the age. Here is a small article concerning the dividing of Jerusalem. http://signsofthelastdays.com/archives/the-burdensome-stone-the-entire-world-is-pressuring-israel-to-give-up-east-jerusalem-but-netanyahu-says-that-israel-will-never-surrender-it .

Getting back to Jesus as the one time only needed sacrifice. Why did the physical sacrifices cease? Because we can’t be made perfect by animal sacrifices. “For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4). Christ’s sacrifice removes our sins, if we repent. Only the blood of Christ can do that—never the blood of bulls and goats. . Christ came to take away the first, the Old Covenant and the physical sacrifices, and establish the second—the New Covenant revolving around Christ and His first coming to Earth. God took the sacrificial system away. “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all” (verse 10). When Christ was sacrificed, the physical sacrifices became obsolete. The sacrificial system was replaced by Christ’s sacrifice Hebrews 8:13.

Christ gave His precious blood for us! And He won’t accept a lukewarm response to such a majestic, total sacrifice. He sweat blood for His Church and the world before He gave His blood! (Luke 22:44).

Now it is time for us to do some sweating in gratitude for what He did for all of us. “Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin” (Hebrews 10:18). There is “no more offering for sin”—either physical or spiritual sacrifices! “No more” means no more. “By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God” (verses 20-21). We have a new way to live and a High Priest over God’s house.

God in His word tells us in so many many places that we as His own,those who have accepted Christ,them and their household (i.e. Those who live in their home with them) will be protected. Psalm 91 is a wonderful chapter in the word that describes a holy protection over His own. But in order for us, any of us, to receive this Holy protection, we must first accept Christs sacrifice of His blood and life, and understand He is alive to give us the hope and understanding of our own eternal life through him. Repent,come to the Lord and understand you are not deserving of this free gift.

That it is by God’s grace and His willingness to have His own son put to death for our sins. That we could never pay a price to receive this,we could never work or be deserving of this gift. It is not by anything we do, or have done, or could do. This is a gift, and all we can do is accept it. Then your protection and that of your children will be given without reservation by the Lord. He promises us protection if we only believe, that He will do as He says He will do. if you are a Christian in name only, then you will not be afforded this protection. You must accept with all your heart, mind, and body, and be a living witness of being crucified daily. The world must be able to tell, you have been set apart from it.

Going to church does not make you a Christian. Living every moment of your life as though the Lord is walking besides you, is showing the world that you are His own. Fearing the Lord not being afraid of Him but revering Him is another way to show you are His own. It fills me with overflowing Joy, to know that God calls me His own, and that He can say that with pride, and I can say I am His with pride, knowing I mean it and am living it. This is a pure and wondrous joy for anyone who truly is His own. Do not get me wrong, we are not any of us perfect,but we are striving for perfection. Daily learning to be more like our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

In the end times,the Jews will be sacrificing once again,but it is for nothing in the sight of God,because He covered the price, the fee for us to be atoned for. Jesus Christ His son was the one time sacrifice needed. There is now no need to sacrifice for atonement. Our sins have been paid for with a hefty price,the life of the Perfect Lamb of God. Jesus lived a sinless perfect life here on earth, so that He would when the time came, be the lamb with no blemish or spot on Him.

That perfect sinless man, became our sin. He did not just take on our sin,He became it. He paid in every way possible for our sins. Physically,mentally,and spiritually did he experience death. He went down to the bowels of the earth, into hell or Hades, because spiritual death in hell is the price for sins. But He is alive, He has set us free and come back to life, and now resides in the place of honor, on the right hand of the Father. Praise Him all you people. But more than that give Him your life in return for His paying the price. This is the ONLY way to eternal life,through the one who died for you,the only son of God. He gave up his kingdom to come walk among us. To feel what we feel,to be tempted as we are tempted. Through it all, He maintained his perfection. What other God has done such a thing? None,there is no other God than the one true God.

Do not be guilty of being a Christian in name only. There is no in between with God, He wants your all or He wants none of you. There is no half way with the Lord. You are all of His, or you are none of His. When you think of standing before Him can you imagine you holding your head up high, knowing you gave everything you had to be more like Him? Or are you one who will hang your head in shame for not trying to be more holy? We can never be perfect on our own, but we are being perfected in Him, (Christ) more and more as we learn about Him. Then one day He is coming back and we will in a moment in a twinkling of an eye, be changed into perfect immortal spirits. We will be perfect in every way,never having to worry about sinning again. I cannot wait for that day!!!

I could, if I died right now, stand before the Lord knowing I gave Him every thing I had to give Him. Knowing that I could not love Him more if I tried. Knowing that I did my very best to be loving, kind, gentle, patient,giving. That I lived with the Holy Spirit guiding me. That I accepted and utilized the gifts the Lord has chosen for me. In short, being one of the church of Philadelphia. The churches are still alive and well and I am definitely considering myself one of the church of Philadelphia,one who will have the protection of the Lord through the end times. Are you? I will when the time comes explain better the churches that are in the book of Revelation.

The end times are going to be crazy,but we who are His own, truly His own, who live every day as though it were their last, who live with God on their mind always, with His pleasure, His will in their heart daily, will be protected and God never breaks a promise. Do you want His protection? Or are you one who says I could never love a God who could and would punish people? God is perfect Holiness and cannot look upon sin. And we are all born filthy sinners. Our littlest tiniest blemish or spot or wrinkle, would look so disgusting and filthy compared to God’s glory,and Holiness. It would be glaringly obvious to us, and we would hang our heads in shame. Do not be guilty of trying to make a god of your own choosing. God does not change for anyone or anything, and I personally would not want Him to. I love Him for all His ways, they are perfect.

Leviticus and the end times have one thing in common, sacrifices. One of those is God sanctioned, God approved atonement. The other is not. It is not wanted or appreciated by God. I feel sorry for those who do not know, that the Lord does not want or ask for it. They are going to be wasting their time for nothing. The end times will be noticeable for a few reasons,but one of those reasons will be that the Jews will have some sort of temple some sort of holy place, (according to them) to make sacrifices and hold temple meetings and such.

Then the antichrist will stop them from sacrificing and even desecrate the temple. The end of, the end times has not as of yet begun. The last seven years is not here yet. Soon it will be how soon no one knows. But when we see the temple being built in Jerusalem, and the 7 year treaty being signed by Israel, and some sort of leader of the world, we will know it is the beginning of those last years. We still have much to see. A one world government, and a one world currency. That has got to take some time, I know we Americans do not want to give up our sovereignty, I imagine other countries will buck this as well, for as long as they can.

God Bless us all, and don’t worry or be afraid, for our hope and promise is coming one day, and not too long from now. If it takes time, that is only because God is allowing for those who will come to Him, to come. He holds off for as long as He can, to get as many as will come to Him to come.

Love in Christ Jesus,Tammy
