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!

Hebrews Chapter 6 Explained By Messianic Jews.

posted by PrayerWarrior

Chapter Six

1. What is the first “elementary” doctrine mentioned?

Repentance from dead works and faith toward God.

2. The second doctrine?

The doctrine of baptisms.

3. The third doctrine?

Laying on of hands.

4. The fourth doctrine?

The resurrection of the dead.

5. The fifth doctrine?

Eternal judgment.

6. What does the writer of Hebrews term these five doctrines?

The first principles, the beginning, of the doctrine of Christ.

7. What does the writer of Hebrews exhort us to do, with reference to the five elementary doctrines?

To leave them and go on to perfection, to maturity.

The writer means that we are to leave them and proceed further with our discussion of the Christian salvation. However, in the light of the statements in Chapter Two through Five, it also is true that we should press past them in actual practice and seek to enter the rest of God.

8. Beginning at verse four, what aspects of salvation had the Hebrew saints experienced already?

They had been enlightened.

They had tasted the heavenly gift.

They had been made partakers of the Holy Spirit.

They had tasted the good Word of God; they had tasted the works of power of the world age to come.

9. What is impossible if people of such spiritual experience should fall away?

To renew them again to repentance.

10. What two things do such backsliders do to Christ?

They crucify Him again and they expose Him to public shame.

Numerous Christian teachers have attempted to prove that once a person has made a genuine of belief in Jesus he can never be removed from the grace of God. Their position is based on a concept of grace as a sovereign action of God unrelated to man’s response.

The premise that redemption is an abstract Divine act that does not depend on human response is one of the deadliest, most subtle of all the errors that have corrupted Christian thinking. The Divine redemption, from beginning to completion, is an opportunity. The believer can choose to pursue the continuing revelation of God’s grace or can, after having begun, ignore and neglect the further challenges and demands.

The Christian walk is a way of faith, a way of righteousness. Whenever a believer ceases to press forward in faith he stands in danger of falling back into spiritual death. Satan never ceases his attempts to deceive the Christian away from the path of light.

The believer who, after repeated admonitions of the Lord, does not begin to bear the fruit of righteousness, will be cut out of the Vine, out of Christ.

Thesis of the Book of Hebrews is that we will be made a partaker of Christ on the condition that we press forward to the land of promise, to the rest of God, to the fullness of our inheritance in Christ. Hebrews was written to experienced disciples who now were losing their fervency.

The expression “If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance” must be interpreted in the light of the whole Book of Hebrews. It appears that these seasoned Christians were beginning to neglect their salvation and were not pressing into the rest of God, the perfection of salvation that is the mark of maturity.

The spiritual forces that govern the earth are so powerful, the currents so strong and swift, that is not press forward is to be swept backward. The experienced saint who loses the white heat of fervency slowly but surely loses ground. Satan works slowly and unremittingly. Before many years have past the believer who once had been a prophet of God is now living in the flesh. His spiritual life is dying.

Whether he would be able in this condition to rekindle his love for Jesus is questionable. We have known of a man in this condition. What at one time had been a vibrant Christian was now a shell of a man, sick, terrified that he had sinned away his day of grace. Our counsel to him was to sit in church every time the doors opened and hope that God would have mercy on him and give him the grace to repent and pray.

Our relationship to the Lamb of God is that of Bride to Bridegroom. We may stumble a few times, in which instances the Lord will pick us up so we may continue our journey toward His palace. But if we fall away, spurning His love, there may come a day when He loses interest in us.

We know of the parable of the prodigal son and the blessing this has been to countless sinners who have come to themselves and returned to Father’s house.

We know also of a faithless Israel who sinned until there no longer was a remedy and they lost the Glory that had been theirs. Twenty-five hundred years later they still are trying to retain control of their land and their holy city.

If we neglect our salvation we will not escape punishment and severe loss of inheritance–if not something worse!

11. What kind of ground does God bless?

That which drinks the rain that comes on it and brings forth crops fit for those for whom it has been tilled.

12. What is true of ground that brings forth thorns and thistles?

It is rejected. It is near a curse. It will be burned in the end.

13. What are some of the things that “accompany salvation”?

Love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, and a pressing forward in the Spirit each day toward the fullness of the inheritance that is in Christ.

If these “things” are not accompanying our Christian experience, then salvation is not occurring. Faith apart from such works of righteousness is dead.

14. What was God remembering concerning the Hebrew Christians?

Their work and labor of love in serving the saints.

Evidently these Jewish saints were hospitable toward the traveling ministries, and were doing all that they could to assist Christians who were in need.

15. How can we make ourselves sure of our hope of salvation?

By being diligent in the work of the Kingdom of God, by following and imitating the believers who through faith and patience are becoming heirs of the promises of God that are in Christ.

Notice that our hope must be made sure. We inherit the rest of God, the land of promise, only as we respond to God’s salvation with faith and patience. Salvation is not an arbitrary Divine action; rather, it is an opportunity to regain what was lost in Eden. God has given Jesus to us to help us drive Satan from our inheritance. Jesus helps us and guides us in every detail. But we must obey Him at each moment or the process ceases.

Prayer is not merely asking God to give us what we desire. Prayer is the way in which we enter the program of redemption, seeking the Lord’s will, and receiving strength and guidance so His will may be done in our life.

16. By whom did God swear, when He made His promise to Abraham concerning Abraham’s descendants?

By Himself because there is no one greater to swear by.

17. What trait of character was Abraham required to exercise in order to inherit the promises that God had made to him?

Patience.

18. Why did God confirm His promise with an oath?

So the heirs of the promise would be convinced of the unchanging nature of God’s intention.

19. What two “immutable” (unchangeable) things give us strong “consolation” (encouragement)?

God’s promise plus the oath that confirms the promise.

20. What is the “hope ” of the Christian pilgrim?

That his soul will be saved (Hebrews 10:39) and that he will inherit the fullness of the blessing promised to the descendants of Abraham.

21. Where is our soul anchored?

In the Most Holy place behind the veil, being fastened there by our hope.

22. Who made a place for us behind the holy veil?

The Lord Jesus, our eternal High Priest of the order of Melchizedek.
Hebrews through out, assures us that since the Jews who were rescued from Egypt and still complained and moaned and railed against God and even after seeing the miracles the Lord performed over the forty year wilderness experience,lost their inheritance,that we surely can too. Also I want to point out something that is often over looked.
The angels who fell with satan can never be returned to the Lord,or gain eternity in heaven ever again. If the angels who are above us, we being just a bit lower than they are in our being, can never regain their standing with God,then how does one expect that it would be any different for us? If we turn away from God after tasting being in and walking in the Holy Spirit,how and why would He give us another chance?

I have to say I do not care about being right for myself,no I care about you all getting this right so that when the multitude of tribulation comes to you,you will not turn away thinking you are forever safe. What a terrible thing it would be for you who has been running the race thus far to give up just before the finish line,and lose all the gain you made. To stand before Christ and have Him say depart from me you who are iniquity I never knew you.

I will finish with this from Hebrews 10:26-31, 26 If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay, and again, “The Lord will judge his people”. 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Hebrews in it’s entirety explains as well that the old covenant laws of Moses have been done away with that the new covenant with Christ as that covenant obliterates the law from having to be observed outside of ourselves. Meaning He wrote those laws on our heart and the Holy Spirit as long as we keep in fellowship and growing,helps us in every way to not transgress.There is no more need for sacrificing for sins just repentance. If you sin and you do it one willingly and two without feeling the need for forgiveness then you are in danger of hell fire.
To this writer and reader,these verses these chapters in Hebrews explains thoroughly we can give up our salvation.

The Christians, Ache

posted by PrayerWarrior

I am a Christian, and no I am not surprised by the fact that more and more people are saying that we Christians are hate filled, angry, intolerant, and the worst people on earth. Why am I not surprised by this? Because in the bible in Isaiah The Lord informed us that one day there would be people calling evil good and good evil. This causes us Christians great pain in our hearts. Sometimes that ache feels like our heart is literally breaking apart.

It is not our intention to force our views on anyone. Nor is it our goal to make anyone believe as we do. Our hope is to help people to see our point of view. Our goal is to help people to come to the absolute joy it is to know the Lord personally. To grow in Knowledge and wisdom daily in the Lord. He is our strength, he is our Jehovah Jirah (God our provider). He not only provides all daily needs to those who believe and trust Him to do so. He also fills us to overflowing with blessings, some carnal blessings, most spiritual blessings. He fills us with understanding of Him. He opens our eyes to knowledge of good and evil, that we may know what is good and righteous. We are not any of us perfect,but we are being perfected daily to receive eternity.
We ache to know people are lost. We ache to see people we love going down the winding crooked path, that leads to death. We want for everyone everywhere all peoples of the earth to understand God is LOVE!!! Yes he rebukes and chastens those he loves. Yes he will punish those who do not see what he puts in front of them daily. And that is that He is so wonderfully faithful to those who just believe in Him and trust Him. He says in the bible all things are possible to those who believe. So many people sadly do not see what that means. It is so simple as to be juveniley simple. Just trust Him and believe in Him to do all He said He would do and it all comes to pass.

Our Pastor ,Pastor Jeff Knight is so great at visuals. I always think of his preaching on the Lord telling us just trust and obey me, all the while holding his new baby girl in front of the church. Saying first before we begin, just look on me as God (now no hate mail please I am not God nor do I think I am God this is for visuals sake people). This baby in my arms is you, all of you in the service. He looks in her eyes, to which she opened her eyes and looked into her daddies eyes and he said, I promise you I love you now and always. I promise to always guide and protect you. I promise to Love and cherish you.  All I ask of you is that you trust and obey me, trust and obey me.  He said it many times over and every one in that house of God was enthralled, and I am sure as was I, so was everyone in that house putting themselves in the place of that baby. Putting God in place of that man, and understanding like we have never understood before.God wants to Love and protect you, cherish you, guide you, and lead you down the path of righteousness. Just trust Him and obey Him.
This is why we Christians ache, because we know all too many of our family members and friends, and coworkers, do not understand that God is there for all of you. We ache because rather than being hate filled and intolerant, we are on the contrary, loving and so tolerant it is unreal. We do not tell anyone it is wrong to sin, to hurt them. We point out sins we have ourselves at one time been guilty of. The road to salvation is paved with sinners. Knowing that if people can but see their sin, they can then turn from it. Finally maybe going into the light, turning over a new leaf. Growing in knowledge and wisdom of the Lord, and being fulfilled beyond your wildest imaginings.

Even so many Christians today think their pain is unimaginable to be talked of in such a horrible way. They think this is the persecution Jesus speaks of. I know there is much more to come, much worse than mere words. There will be much more physical pain to come. I pray always that my brothers and sisters in Christ, who believe we are to suffer none of the real persecutions of the body, rather than just of the mind, will stay steady and strong in their first love, which is the Lord. I ache personally to know that so many who think they suffer unbearably now in the USA, have seen nothing yet. That they will indeed turn away from God, thus making it possible for the antichrist to be revealed.

I know so many people who walk a half way walk with the Lord and call themselves true Christians, but the Lord said all of you or none of you. Meaning, he wants all of your life, your every thought, your every moment on how to further His kingdom, and how to walk more righteously with Him. Those halfway Christians will be the first to turn away from Christ in the not so distant future. If you are half way into the Lord then you are none of his. This planet we live on is temporary we all must die. The difference is, we Christians know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are going to live forever more in perfection, and in glory. My daily thanks to the Lord is Lord thank you for being you and showing me yourself. Lord I praise you for all that you have done in me, on me and my life. Lord I thank you for all that you will do in the future, for me with me, and in me.

Today in this state the great lovely state of Washington, our governor apparently put some kind of sign out on one of the city buildings renouncing God, Heaven, hell, and anything to do with religion as a whole. My heart skipped a few beats at that. If we take God out of our state we have nothing. It is so sad to see God being taken out of everything these days. Not so surprising is how much the United states is falling apart. Why because God has been removed from everything. Teachers are fired, kids expelled from schools for saying Jesus, or praying. Coaches of every sport being ridiculed for praying with their teams,as well as fired. People being arrested for praying on sidewalks and in parks. Little do they know we are praying for them to realize since they decided to remove our Lord from all things, how much we have all suffered for it. Never realizing that if they just repented, the things gone wrong would turn around so fast, it would make their heads spin.

Our world is falling apart due to removing God from everything. The earth is rebelling at the sins going on in it. The earth was made by God therefore it was good and that also means Holy. Like God the earth was not made to take sin it hates sin, as much as God does. The earthquakes the waters raging, the signs in the stars and heavens, our very atmosphere is crying out and rebelling or repelling the sin that is in it on it, and surrounding it. The devil has not even come down yet in anger, but he has certainly been busy for centuries anyway. In all that time satan has been planning his take over bid . Just like any corporate raider he has been scheming, planning, devising, his destruction of man kind. Every month it seems there are more and more things science cannot explain going on with our planet, our sun, our entire solar system. This is another reason we Christians ache. Man is destroying themselves allowing evil in all over and do not even come close, to accepting their responsibility for it. Oh yes we ache for the lost who are so blinded by their own understandings.

If people would just give the Lord our God, just three hours of their time, and truly believe in Him, for just three hours, they would be astounded at how much of Himself He would reveal to them. The Joy that is simply unexplainable but must be experienced for ones self. Would make so many cry with it. Not a sad cry, but a joyful, I cannot believe it, better than winning the lottery, kind of joy. Because as cool as winning the lottery would be (even if chances are one in 700 million or so) that is temporary too. We will not need anything in Heaven God is the entire provision. We are Jesus portion and He is our Prize. Oh what Joy that is to know. What God has prepared for us no mind has imagined, no eye has seen, no ear has heard. I know that has got to be something beyond the realm of spectacular. Besides the fact that for eternity there will be no boredom God said behold I make all things new. He did not quantify that. So from my point of view there will be no end to Him making all things new.

God has given this woman a heart to love endlessly. I always ask Him, Lord give me your heart for the other people of this earth, boy does he ever. I no longer look at those people who call us haters, as mean and evil . Now I see them as lost, and so in need of salvation. I am going to hate one day seeing anyone even the worst human being going to hell. I know I am going to seriously need God to wipe away the sorrows, mourning, and tears from my eyes forever more. Because I can almost feel that heartache now. Imagine being surrounded by 100% Love and seeing those we love and care for, or anyone for that matter going to hell? I know we will be understanding that it is just rewards, but that does not mean it is going to hurt us any less.

But there is GOOD NEWS!!!  For every time we are thrown down verbally or physically. For every time we are persecuted for Christs sake, there is a jewel added to our crowns. We must be thankful for our persecution as this grows us and leads to perseverance. We must praise God even in the midst of our worst hardest trials. He blesses us even more for our praise in the midst of our storms. How we react to those storms proves our trust of Him. By trials and tests we are being refined. Do not ever blame God for your trials, rejoice that he thinks us worthy of going through them. God says for he who endures till the end, great is his rewards in Heaven.

Thank you for reading this and sharing in my ache. The fact that I have had readers from all over the world, just makes me want to write more. When someone comments on my articles it just makes my head flood with more articles and thoughts to share. So Thanks everyone for your reading my lessons in this life, and for allowing me to share my thoughts with you.
God Bless and keep you all safe, happy, and healthy in his hands.
Love in Christ Jesus, Tammy
