“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
“If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.”
“25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 [Thou] blind Pharisee, cleanse first that [which is] within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.”
Brothers and Sisters there is a Consequences for Walking In Disobedience. When Jesus came and revealed that He Is The Living Word Of God The Father it changed everything. Those things that were done in Secret now has no Covering, no Cloak to hide behind, only Repentance is available and the Covering Of Sin is only by the Blood Of Jesus, The Christ!
When Jesus sends a Man or Woman to go and to Present Jesus As Lord, it will make people uncomfortable, mad, want to go and hide. It will make people walk in Rebellion if they do not choose to follow The Word Of The Lord! Those who choose to do such things will pay a price for Walking In Disobedience. God does not send His Word to be Void of Truth, but He sends His Word to Deliver people out of Sin and Darkness giving them the Opportunity to Walk In The Light Of God!
“For so was it charged me by the word of the LORD, saying, Eat no bread, nor drink water, nor turn again by the same way that thou camest.”
1 Kings 13:9
Here, a young Prophet Of The God was Sent to deliver a message. He had Orders From God, to Do God’s Will, but, he Walked in Disobedience and paid for it with his Life.
“11 Now there dwelt an old prophet in Bethel; and his sons came and told him all the works that the man of God had done that day in Bethel: the words which he had spoken unto the king, them they told also to their father. 12 And their father said unto them, What way went he? For his sons had seen what way the man of God went, which came from Judah. 13 And he said unto his sons, Saddle me the ass. So they saddled him the ass: and he rode thereon, 14 And went after the man of God, and found him sitting under an oak: and he said unto him, [Art] thou the man of God that camest from Judah? And he said, I [am]. 15 Then he said unto him, Come home with me, and eat bread. 16 And he said, I may not return with thee, nor go in with thee: neither will I eat bread nor drink water with thee in this place: 17 For it was said to me by the word of the LORD, Thou shalt eat no bread nor drink water there, nor turn again to go by the way that thou camest. 18 He said unto him, I [am] a prophet also as thou [art]; and an angel spake unto me by the word of the LORD, saying, Bring him back with thee into thine house, that he may eat bread and drink water. [But] he lied unto him. 19 So he went back with him, and did eat bread in his house, and drank water. 20 And it came to pass, as they sat at the table, that the word of the LORD came unto the prophet that brought him back: 21 And he cried unto the man of God that came from Judah, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Forasmuch as thou hast disobeyed the mouth of the LORD, and hast not kept the commandment which the LORD thy God commanded thee, 22 But camest back, and hast eaten bread and drunk water in the place, of the which [the LORD] did say to thee, Eat no bread, and drink no water; thy carcase shall not come unto the sepulchre of thy fathers. 23 And it came to pass, after he had eaten bread, and after he had drunk, that he saddled for him the ass, [to wit], for the prophet whom he had brought back. 24 And when he was gone, a lion met him by the way, and slew him: and his carcase was cast in the way, and the ass stood by it, the lion also stood by the carcase. 25 And, behold, men passed by, and saw the carcase cast in the way, and the lion standing by the carcase: and they came and told [it] in the city where the old prophet dwelt.”
1 Kings 13:11-25
Now the point of this is, that we Must Walk In Obedience or face The Living God for Walking In Disobedience! People of our time do not think that God still Requires that we Walk In Obedience, thinking they can Do or Say whatever they want to and get away with it. But I tell you this, God, that is The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit Demand and Require that we Walk In Obedience!
This message is Two Fold. Jesus wants His People, His Bride, to understand that we are to Walk In Obedience regardless to Any One or Any Thing and that goes for those whom Jesus Sends and to those the Message was for. The Fractured Church does not walk in Obedience, but walks in whatever Direction That Suits Them.
I was saved, covered by the Blood Of Jesus at thirteen, but I did not start Walking With God until I was twenty-one. I did not receive my Calling until I was twenty-nine and when I was Called this is The Word Of The Lord that I received: I am to Keep my Eyes on Him and not Look to the Left nor to the Right. I was not to be afraid of those whom I would be sent to, but that I must Follow The Word Of The Lord, even as He Says To Do So. I have kept this Word for thirty years. There was another part of this Word, that The Lord said that if I Walked In Disobedience I would be Cut Asunder, in other words, it would cost me my Life.
The problem with todays society, with God’s House, is that there is No Fear Of God! I do not mean the Fear that “…Oh Gods going to kill me if ….”, but a Holy Fear, a Godly Fear that God…Is God! Yes, I was given a mandate but, for me and what I must go and do it is a matter of Life or Death to whom I am sent to, it could be their Physical Life, or their Spiritual Life, or their Life In Their Surroundings. For me, it does not matter, but what does matter is that I Walk In Obedience regardless the outcome.
There are many who speak lies about Judgement, that because you Accept Jesus as Savior there is no more Consequences For Sin! This is a Lie straight from Satan!
“Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
“4 For [it is] impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put [him] to an open shame.”
“10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat [is] an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps [is] under their lips: 14 Whose mouth [is] full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet [are] swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery [are] in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
In The House Of God, THERE IS NO FEAR OF GOD!!! They do not Seek after God to be as God Commands, but seek after a god to comfort there itching ears, to satisfy the Flesh, who put on the Form Of Godliness but deny Whom God Is! Many who claim they belong to God, walk not to Please Him, but to Please themselves or others like them.
“1 I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.”
2 Timothy 4:1-5
“1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all [men], as theirs also was.”
2 Timothy 3:1-9
There are many who use these Scriptures against the Homosexual which is true, but, it is also dealing with All People, especially those In The House Of God! People go to church, entering in one way when entering into the building, but as soon as they leave the building they act another way! People put on a cloak of Godliness when within the walls of the church, yet they are just as those within the world. Going to church should change us for the good!
Where is The Fear Of God!!! If it is not in us who claim to be Saved, claim to be Washed by the Blood Of Jesus, how is the World ever going to know the Truth about God! For I Walk in Fear Of A Holy God, a Just God and a Loving God. I Fear God not just because He can destroy me, but because He Loves me. There is None Like Our God!!!
“27 What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops. 28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.”
Understand this. Either you Walk in Obedience or you Walk in Disobedience, both will affect Your Life, whether it be now or when you see Jesus face to face, there will be Justification Of Payment! We must Choose to Walk In Obedience regardless of all that is going on around us, God will not force you, but will give you every chance to Choose Him and His Ways.
For those who have fallen, to those who have gone astray, to those who have Walked In Disobedience there is still Hope. But you Must Repent and turn away from Walking Your Own Way. We have a Loving God who cares for you above all things on this earth, so much so that He gave us a way to please Him, and that is through Jesus, who is The Truth and Life!
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
As always … Your Choice!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
