Common Place

9 But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: 10 Which in time past [were] not a people, but [are] now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.”

1 Peter 2:9-10

Brothers and Sisters STOP BEING FRIENDS WITH THE WORLD!!! We are Washed and Sanctified By The Precious Blood Of Jesus, The Christ, The Son Of God The Father!!! The World is our Enemy, as it is the Lord Jesus enemy.

41 And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David’s son? 42 And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, 43 Till I make thine enemies thy footstool. 44 David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?”

Luke 20:41-44

Jesus, Our Lord, Our Christ, The Son Of The Father sits on the Right Hand of The Father. All Power, All Authority, All Life, All Death, All Judgement is His and NO ONE can go to The Father or Go To Heaven without going Through Jesus, having Your Name written in The Lambs Book Of Life! With that being said, we are not to Befriend those who are Not Blood Washed By Jesus! I know thousands of people, even some on a very personal basis but they are Not My Friends. They are Dead, they are Lost, They Are My Enemy, they will be cast into The Lake Of Fire if they do not Confess, Repent that Jesus Is Lord and choose to be Washed Clean by Jesus Holy Blood!

Too many of you are Friends with the Enemies of God, too many are Walking in the Council of Men and not the Council of Fellow Believers. You must draw a line that those who do not Know Jesus As Their Lord and Savior they are your enemy all because they are God’s Enemy and you must not cross that line for anything. You must always be mindful of this, that even though we are in the World, we are NOT to be part of the World!

We need each other, that is, Fellow Believers to Keep Us from going astray, from being captivated once again by the World, by Satan.

We need to be as Abraham was, that he was so close to God The Father, that The Father Called him a Friend. The only way that could have happened is that Abraham had to Separate himself from what was around him, set his affairs to be the affairs of The Father or to be as David being after God’s Heart.

“But thou, Israel, [art] my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.”

Isaiah 41:8

20 And after that he gave [unto them] judges about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until Samuel the prophet. 21 And afterward they desired a king: and God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years. 22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the [son] of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.”

Acts 13:20-22

My Friends are only those whom Jesus has Cleansed By His Blood all others are my Enemies, even some of my blood line. In order for me to Walk as Jesus would have me to Walk in this World then I must Understand and See through Jesus Eyes being Led by His Holy Spirit. We need to Understand that there has to be a Separation of those who Know Jesus as Lord, and, those who Do Not Know Jesus as Lord. it will not be easy as there are those who confess one thing but are truly not what they say.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”

Matthew 7:15

 “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”

Matthew 10:16

You, my Brothers and Sisters fall to the sword of the enemy having your minds filled with lies of the enemy not seeing the Truth, but are given unto Diverse Lusts, pleasing your flesh more so than pleasing Jesus as The Lord, The Son Of The Father! You think, you say and you do according to your Council that you hold dear more so than the Council Of God whom He has sent you!!!

Understand this one thing, Satan wants to Separate you from anything that deals with God, he wants to Kill You, Steal From You at any cost. I will not allow Satan to Kill or Steal from me those things that God Counts as Holy.

1 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 4 The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

Psalm 1:1-6

9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”

1 Corinthians 5:9-13

Have No Common Place in this World with those who are Not Blood Bought for they will lead you astray, clouding your minds with things that you should not be entangled with them. You have been Separated from them or I should say that you should be. There are things that are in Common but those things are only Common Needs such as Food, Water, Clothing and Housing. Yes we have things that are Common in Wants as well, but let those wants be according to The Will of Jesus. Jesus has said many times that if you Love Him then those things that He Desires will be in Your Life and with those things it will Separate you from His Enemy and should be Your Enemy.

15 Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof:

but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”

1 John 2:15-17

5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. 6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. 8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. 9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”

John 15:5-10

Now for the hard part dealing with Common Place. If someone is Born Again, that is, Blood Bought, They Are Your Family, They Are Your Brothers and Sisters and YOU are to hold them Close and do not allow any type of Separation to come between you. If you do, then you have allowed the enemy to take a foot hold into The Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth.

“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven.”

Matthew 6:10

11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and [that] your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. 15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

John 15:11-17

Many Blood Bought have been mislead about this Scripture. Jesus said that we were to Love Those Who Abide In Him, NOT those who are in the World here. So, what should that Love Be?  It means that you Abide Only with those who are Blood Bought, that you Hold Them Up above the World, that you Seek Fellowship with only Those Who Are Brothers and Sisters, that you Stand For Them even unto Death! This is Our Common Place or should be!!! If I know that someone is my Brother or Sister in Christ Jesus I first become a Fruit Inspector to see that what they confess is true, then if I know of anything that is coming against them, then I will Stand On Their Behalf if need be. I would lose things in this World for their sake, even my Life if it came to it.

Now comes an even harder part. The World is Dying and most are headed for The Lake Of Fire and there is nothing we can do to stop that. We need to understand that the affairs of the World, even though they may affect us, are not our concern. Jesus said “… let the Dead Bury the Dead…”.

21 And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. 22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.”

Matthew 8:21-22

This does not mean we are not to go and bury our loved ones, Jesus was making a Spiritual Point here that we are not to be concerned with those who are Dead in this World, but rather Let Them Take Care of their own affairs. This also does not mean that we are Not to show the Love Of God to the World in helping them do things, but it does mean we are not to Befriend them and become Entangled In Their Affairs. There are so many voices in the World wanting you to do this or wanting you to do that. They pull on the Heart Strings to sway you to go their direction leaving behind those things that Jesus has commanded us to do or to be like.

One example of this is what has happened recently in the news, showing a dad and child face down in the water because they were trying to sneak into the United States. The media is using the picture to show you a tragedy, but you must look and understand beyond what they are showing. The fact is they were Breaking The Law and the Consequence of that action was Death. Yes it is sad that this had to happen, but, this is an affair of a Lost Dying World. We are to be Representations of Jesus and His Kingdom, not Befriending The World!

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

2 Corinthians 6:14-18

Paul says we are NOT to be Unequally Yoked Together With Unbelievers. Yes this set of Scriptures is used mainly for Marriage but it goes beyond that. We are Not to have Common Place with those who are in this World, but are to Live Separately from them.

Why should I or even more so, why would I want to have a Non-Believer as a Friend, as a Spouse, as my Council? If I want to Live as God wants me to Live then only the Godly, Born Again, Blood Bought has to be my choice! We should Desire The Common Place of God and His Kingdom and Not the Desire to be a part of the Common Place of The World!!!

 

As always … YOUR CHOICE!!!

Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!

Amen and Amen!!!

The Body

“So we, [being] many, are one body in Christ, and

every one members one of another.”

Romans 12:5

 Brothers and Sisters when Jesus came and became the Sacrifice, The Lamb Of God, He Died for the Whole World, even though He was sent to the House Of Israel First, but was rejected.

23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast [it] to dogs. 27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.”

Matthew 15:23-27

“Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?”

Matthew 21:42

 “Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day.”

Luke 9:22

Because of this Rejection, the rest of the World was given the Opportunity to Receive Jesus As The Christ being saved from our sins. We have been Grafted Into Gods Divine Plan, being witnesses to the World.

16 For if the firstfruit [be] holy, the lump [is] also [holy]: and if the root [be] holy, so [are] the branches. 17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.”

Romans 11:16-18

Now I say all of this to bring understanding that WE Are To BE ONE BODY! In Jesus there is NO Baptist, NO Methodist, NO Catholic, NO Mormons, NO Seventh Day Adventist, NO Presbyterian, NO Full Gospel,  NO… NO… NO…, those of you who uphold such things walk not according to Gods Will, but walk according to the Flesh and to the Anti-Christ Spirit! Show me any of these in God’s Holy Word and I’ll Repent!

Because of these things The Body is Splintered, Fractured and Functions At Low Capacity.

The Root is made up of several sins. A small list of these are Pride, Un-Forgiveness, Arrogance, Self-Righteousness, Ungodliness, Self-Willed, the Worst of these is Pride! You Walk in these Sins and say you are The Body, liars all! You Pick and Choose what you will do or will not do and then Justify it by others in like standing.

“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”

2 Corinthians 10:12

The Scriptures tell us Not to Forsake The Assembly of Fellow Believers, there are reasons for this that deals with Your Faith, Your Walk and Your Relationship With Jesus. Many, many churches have Disassembled the Governing Head of the Church, which is, Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers. These five Offices were set by Jesus and Him Alone. They were to make sure that The Will Of Jesus was carried out here on earth. Between Satan and Man three of these Offices are all but gone and are Rejected by most, not accepted in today’s times, they say their season “has past and is no more”. They are three most important of all of the Offices, which is the Apostle, Prophet and Evangelist. In two of these, the very Foundation of our Faith rides upon, the Apostle and Prophet, while the third is the Out Reach Arm of The Church.

7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. 9 (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”

Ephesians 4:7-16

 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]; 21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: 22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

Ephesians 2:20-22

 Because of this we are Not The Body that Jesus intended, what He desired. But instead have become Salt that has lost its Savor.

“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.”

Matthew 5:13

 The Body is wounded and is not fighting against the enemy of our Faith. We are losing our Effectiveness to bring people to a Holy God, a Just God, and a Righteous God!

The Body is to be concerning one another. We are to Lift Up The Body above its circumstances, to be in One Accord.

7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. 9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”

Galatians 6:7-10

 We, The Body, are to Pray, Communicate, and Have Fellowship always. In doing this, we fight against the enemy, including, even our own Flesh and Satan. When we ignore to do these things we are opening doors for Satan to walk through and to control a Believers Life through circumstances. If you have something against a Brother or Sister, the Scriptures are clear that before we are to Honor Jesus, we must fix the issue at hand, we must be quick in doing so, if not it festers and becomes a wound that cannot be healed properly.

“Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.”

Matthew 5:24

 “Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.”

Matthew 5:25

 Brothers and Sisters we have a Responsibility to each other, to help each other walk through this world to Glorify Jesus. If we fail, ignoring to do this, then we bring No Glory To Jesus, but instead glorify Our Flesh and Satan. I have ministered thousands of messages to thousands of people that Jesus wanted me to, but very few do I ever hear from. Very few take the Time, the Effort to do what Scriptures tells us to do; instead you make up your excuses, praise Jesus and think you are Godly!

It is past time for us to be The Body that Jesus intended us to be. We need to stop our moaning and groaning, our likes and dislikes; people need to stop the excuses, needing to put emotions aside and Stand Up and be The Body! There should be No Walls, No differing Religious Beliefs, No Distance that should separate us. There is a Scripture that tells us that basically nothing can separate us from the Love Of God, but, as The Holy Spirit has taught, there is one thing… Mans Will can separate you from Gods Love.

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans 8:37-39

 There is absolutely nothing in this World that can Separate Us From Gods Love, but, YOU CAN. Now the icing on the cake you might say. If You Love God, then you Must Keep His Word, His Commandments Doing them without ceasing until the end.

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

John 14:15

 “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

Matthew 24:13

My Brothers and Sisters In Jesus we must put away our Wills, our Desires and do The Will of Jesus NO MATTER THE COST! The World is dying, and is looking for a Savior, and we are the Books that they are reading. There was a survey given to the younger generation asking them why they did not go to church. Their answer was that their encounters with the people of churches were hypocrites, liars, speaking a good talk but not walking the walk. James says that we must not only Speak the Truth, but must also Walk The Truth out in our lives.

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.”

James 1:22-25

 As always, Your Choice!

Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!

Amen and Amen!!!

Whom Do You Work For…

“With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:”

Ephesians 6:7

Brothers and Sisters whatever we Do or Say let it all be done with Jesus in the Forefront of Your Minds, Your Hearts and minds with Full Intent to Please Jesus before Men. If Jesus is not the First Thought in most of what you Do or Say then you have an issue and you may have many masters that dictate who you are!

When we Accept Jesus into Our Lives, there should be a Transformation that takes place. First it will be your Spirit Washed by The Blood of Jesus. The Second Transformation YOU must make and decide to do deals with your Soul and Flesh. The Scriptures tells us that when we Accept Jesus that All Things Become New. Most believe that all things are new and there is no old left, this is a lie from Satan. Now let me make something clear here, there can be some Instant Transformation in the Soul and Flesh and in many cases there are, but for the most part because of Our Free Will we decide what will change in Our Lives.

“Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

The keys in this Scripture are Three Fold. First we must Accept Jesus as Lord, second our Sins against God are Passed Away and because of that the third thing is All Things Are Become New! Become is an Action Word, it a word meaning ‘In Process’.

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Romans 12:1-2

We must make a Decision to be Transformed from the Life we once had to the New Life Jesus has given us. There is a difference in making Jesus Savior and making Jesus Lord, the two can be separated even though they should not ever be. There are those who Believe in Jesus and have Accepted Jesus into their lives as Savior, but they have Refused to make Him Lord of Their Lives. I cannot speak to their Salvation, which is up to the Lord Jesus to determine, but I can say according to Scripture it is in question.

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20

Being Crucified With Christ is that our Sins have been Washed Away, the “I Am” is a Choice to Live our Lives with Jesus Being The Head of Everything that touches Our Lives. Paul had to make a choice to Follow, to Follow The Life Style Jesus had Chosen For Him, he could have continued to live as he had before. Just as Paul, we must come to the Understanding that to be Christ Like, we must Change from one point of view to God’s Point of View, that we put Jesus First in All Things!

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with [his] hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

Ephesians 4:25-32

Some of you have Grieved The Holy Spirit by your Words, your Actions and you need to Repent. Do you not understand that The Holy Spirit is with you 24/7 until we get to Heaven and do not also understand that The Holy Spirit will Bear Witness to whom we are in Jesus!

Most of you make decisions based upon your Fleshly Desires and Not To The Will of Jesus! Most of you say you will do this or you will do that without any thought towards what Jesus Wants You To Do.

13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: 14 Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. 15 For that ye [ought] to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. 16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.”

James 4:13-16

 I will give you a couple of my own Life examples. The first is that when I seek employment is ask Jesus for His Direction and Guidance in getting a job, not to just give me a job to satisfy my flesh, but that in my job I will be doing Jesus Will, that is Doing and Saying what He Desires. The second is here recently I have come to the conclusion that there are too many things that I need to get done around my house, but, I took the time to Ask Jesus What Should I Do? The Lord Jesus gave me direction in what to do First… and that I will do.

My point, God’s Point is that if you Make Jesus Lord, then All of your Decisions will be according to His Will, not yours.

Jesus gave us the greatest example of this in the Garden of Gethsemane…

“Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”

Luke 22:42

Jesus Asked, did not receive His Request, and He then Submitted To The Fathers Will. For us it is the same, “Jesus, Can I?”, “Will You?” but if You Do Not, It Does Not Matter, “I Will Do Thy Will In My Life”. “I will BE the Example to others as You have been to me”. “I Work For You, Jesus” not others…

Jesus told us to Ask, Seek and Knock to Receive His Will, but so many Ask, Seek and Knock according to their own will and are led astray because of it.

“Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume [it] upon your lusts.”

James 4:3

We have been Bought and Paid for By The Blood Of Jesus, we Belong To Jesus to Do His Will, He Is Our Boss! I Chose to Work For Jesus, He is Above My Life, My Wife, My Children, My Friends, My Job, My Education, My Will, that means that Nothing Stands Between Me and Jesus!

Jesus said this profound thing, Your Actions Will Confuse Your Love For Me! Wow, that is a Hard thing, it is a Convicting Statement, that My Actions Show Who I Work For!

“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

John 14:15

Let’s make this clear. Some of you will say, “Jesus has not given me a Commandment…”, transfer the word Commandments to My Will, My Desire and  Anything that Jesus has said, is a Commandment to you, it Is His Will, it Is His Desire, that is, if He Is Lord!

22 Servants, obey in all things [your] masters according to the flesh; not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but in singleness of heart, fearing God: 23 And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; 24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. 25 But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.”

Colossians 3:22-25

If you Work for Jesus, He can Ask Of You Anything and your Response will be, “Yes Lord Jesus, Thy Will Be Done!” The Lord has brought to mind when He first was Directing my steps to my Calling that I was not aware of at the time. I just knew there was a draw on my life to Serve Jesus. I had confessed my desire to the Pastor at that time and his response was “You Have To Go To School….”. I was heart broken, because I was poor, living day to day. The Lord Jesus spoke and said that He would Teach me His Will and not the will of men, that even as He taught Moses it would be with me. So, I have been taught at The Masters Hand, only because I Made Jesus Lord!

Examine your Life, if you cannot put The Name Of Jesus before each item in your Life, then you have an issue. Where you are and what you are doing should be because Jesus is Lord of Your Life and that He has a Plan To Glorify His Name.

I Live where I am at because Jesus said to Live where I am and I have Glorified Jesus to my neighbors. I Work where I work because Jesus said to take this job and I have Glorified Jesus to my co-workers, I Drive the vehicle I have because Jesus said to take this vehicle and I have Glorified Jesus in my Vehicle, I Buy things for my Wife because Jesus says to buy this or that to Glorify Jesus being Obedient To His Direction, I go on a Trip because I Asked Jesus if I Can or Can Not. Jesus is First in All Things!!!

Does this mean that I am Perfect, NO I AM NOT! I fail in many, many things, but in my failures I Seek Jesus that with my failures He Will Be Glorified! On my job I know my fleshly limits, each day I Ask Jesus for His Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding that I can Do My Best to be A Witness For Him to others. I have found that I cannot Live Without Jesus being at the helm of My Life.

The question is this…, Whom Do You Work For? Is Jesus Really Lord of Your Life, or do you only run to Him when you cannot figure out what to do or you are in trouble.

7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so]; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.”

Matthew 25:7-13

The Wise Virgins prepared for the Coming of The Lord each and every day, while the foolish did their own thing until the last minute, when it was too late. Even though they called Jesus Lord, Jesus said “I Know You Not.”

Again, Whom Do You Work For? The choice is yours!

 

Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!

Amen and Amen!!!

Broken and Contrite

“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name [is] Holy; I dwell in the high and holy [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”
Isaiah 57:15
“The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”
Psalm 34:18
“The sacrifices of God [are] a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Psalm 51:17
“For all those [things] hath mine hand made, and all those [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to this [man] will I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.”
Isaiah 66:2

What is a Broken Heart, Contrite Heart a Humble Spirit? In order to Understand these elements we need to look at the Opposite of them. Below is the Dictionary Meaning of each:

A Contrite Heart: “feeling or expressing remorse or penitence; affected by guilt.”

A Broken Heart: “used in reference to a state of extreme grief or sorrow, typically caused by the death of a loved one or the ending of a romantic relationship.”

A Humble Spirit: “”modest; without an excess of pride.” A person who brags about being humble may have too much pride in being humble to actually be humble. Sometimes fictional characters try to earn favor by saying “I’m just a humble man in search of…” when it is obvious they are the opposite.”

A Prideful Spirit: “Prideful people don’t usually have many friends, since they think they’re superior to everyone else. Although the adjective prideful is occasionally used simply to mean “proud,” or pleased and happy because of some achievement or quality, it usually means something closer to “haughty.”

A person that does Not Have A Contrite Heart is one that has No Remorse in their Acton’s or Word’s that Offend God. They will Judge Themselves By Themselves and the World not taking God’s Commands to the Heart.

“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”

2 Corinthians 10:12

Not having any Guilt or Shame but Justifying Themselves according to Worldly Standards Of Men and Not God.

A person that has not had a Broken Heart Concerning God, is one that does not See Sin as Sin, but within their Sin having a feeling of Satisfaction For Their Accomplishments.

18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”

John 3:18-21

“Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.”

John 8:34

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”

James 1:13-15

Someone who Loves The Sin, more than God, who Refuses to Turn Away From Sin, Justifying Their Actions. Not Weighing Themselves To God’s Standards, but Indulges In Evil Pleasures.

A person that is Not Humble In Spirit is one that Exalts Their Accomplishments that they themselves have made the Path in which they walk on. A person that is not Humble In Spirit will feel they are More Deserving Than Others In Their Accomplishments.

2 Every way of a man [is] right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. … 5 The thoughts of the diligent [tend] only to plenteousness; but of every one [that is] hasty only to want.”

Proverbs 21:2, 5

“And the king of Israel answered and said, Tell [him], Let not him that girdeth on [his harness] boast himself as he that putteth it off.”

1 Kings 20:11

“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”

Proverbs 27:1

“Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.”

Romans 11:18

“Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

Ephesians 2:9

Someone who Looks At What They Have Accomplished, Above that which God Has Accomplished In Them and Through Them.

A person Having a Prideful Spirit is very similar to not having a Humble Spirit but it takes on a Characteristic of as Being God or Better Than God.

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.”

Isaiah 14:12-14

When we put ourselves into the Place Of God thinking we have Power and Authority Above God or even others then a Prideful Spirit is in control. There are some of you out there that do the following which is the Root Of Pride, you say within your heart… “I have a Masters Degree in…”, “I am…” usually, but not always, is a sign of Pride. It is when we Exalt Ourselves to be More Than what we really are.

Some examples: someone who says they are one of the Five Offices of Jesus to use that position more as an Overlord. That does not mean they cannot Walk in their Office with Confidence, but it means they Must Walk in their Office with Humility. Someone who claims a Job Title but is not worthy of that title and uses that Title to Lord Over Others. Even those who go and get some type of Degree whether it is Secular or steeped in Religion and uses that Degree to Better Themselves Above Others would be an Arrogant Way.

“For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

Romans 12:3

To have a Broken and Contrite Heart is not fun, but the rewards are Eternal. Jesus and The Father hold that person with the highest regards, becoming The Vessels Of God. Moses had to be Broken, Paul had to be Broken and many others in between have had to be Broken in order to be Used Of God.

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make [it]. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay [is] in the potter’s hand, so [are] ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. 7 [At what] instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy [it]; 8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. 9 And [at what] instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant [it]; 10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.”

Jeremiah 18:1-10

20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, [and] prepared unto every good work. 22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.”

2 Timothy 2:20-22

Let us all Seek God to be Vessels Of Honor and Not Vessels Of Dishonor. Let every one of us pray in like manner, “Lord Jesus Brake Me and Make Me Into A Vessel Of Honor that Will Glorify You With My Life…”. Let us all Seek Jesus to Have a Broken and Contrite Heart Before Him. It is not a fun task, but is one that is needed to purge us from sin, to make us into The Children Of God. As always we have a choice to live our lives the way we want to or to live our lives to Glorify Jesus in All that we may Do and Say.

As it has come to mind, as The Holy Spirit says, some of you have Broken Covenants with God and with Man are bringing Dishonor to Jesus, Repent, turn away from a Prideful Spirit, Humble yourselves before Jesus, doing His Will!

As always, your Choice.

Amen and Amen!!!

Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!

Amen and Amen!!!
