Brothers and Sisters the Characteristics of Your Life speaks Volumes to those who are around you, especially to those whom you do not think even care, who seem not to be watching. We, Brothers and Sisters will be held Accountable for our Character, for our Actions, for our Thoughts and for our Brotherly Love towards the House Of God!
You have been Stained with the Dye of the World, looking at they are, being as they are, finding no Discernment between God and the World. God did not say … Be Ye Holy As I Am Holy… just to hear Himself or … Be Ye Perfect As I Am Perfect… to waste His Time. We are To Be Like God, In ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE!!!
“Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I [am] the LORD your God.”
“15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:15-16
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
Many of you would rather wallow with swine then to be as God says you are to be, not understanding that you have been Called Into Holiness, that You are Called to be a Witness before the World that God is God, that Jesus is Lord and Died to Cover All Sins, no matter how Great or Small. We, Brothers and Sisters are to be a Peculiar People, a People that the World would call Odd.
“Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
“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:”
1 Peter 2:9
“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;”
1 Corinthians 1:27
We are a Chosen People, a People of God, For God to bring forth Praises to Him! You, Brothers and Sisters have been Drawn By The Father to be Saved. It was no happenchance or by coincidence that you have been Washed By The Blood Of Jesus, The Father Wanted YOU to be Washed, to be Saved From Sin and to Live a Holy Life!!!
“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.”
There is an Order that The Father has Ordained since the beginning of time and in that Order will All Things Submit To, whether if is by Choice or not. Jesus said that He only did and said those things that He Knew of His Father. Jesus Submitted to The Fathers Will above His own Will, above the Pressures and Pains of this World. Jesus Chose to Be As His Father Is, by His Own Free Will!
“19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.”
“49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.”
“Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”
In the next few pages I will present Negative and Positive Characteristics in our Actions and Speech In Our Households. I will start with the Positive vs. the Negative.
“2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered [them] to you. 3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God.”
1 Corinthians 11:2-3
“8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”
1 Corinthians 11: 8-9
“22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so [let] the wives [be] to their own husbands in every thing.”
“But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”
1 Timothy 2:12
According to God, NOT MAN, that God is the Head of Man, the Man is the Head of the Woman and the Children are subject to both. But because You, My Brothers and Sisters, have allowed Satan to enter into your House and have given Authority to both the Woman and to your Children, there has been a Great Fall in the World, even within God’s House!!! Because you, Men, Women and Children have Obeyed the Voice of the World, you have fallen!
Men, you should have Stood Up and to Have Stood Upon the Word Of God in Keeping your House, but you have become Lazy, Tired of doing Right before God and would rather give in to Sacrifice then in Obedience! Just as Adam did, Sin entered into the World, so because of you God’s House has fallen to the World. Men, you I Rebuke in all Authority that Jesus has given me! Because you have Fallen you have also caused your Wives to Fall and your Children are Rebellious!!!
Because the World cried out for Equality of Men and Women you have Beckoned to the Cry and have Submitted to the Wiles of Satan!!! Get me not wrong, if a Woman is doing the same job as a Man then there should be Equality in all aspects, but understand this, she should not be in an Authoritative Position over the Man, this is God’s Ordinance not Man’s!
Women, for you do I Rebuke, because you Heeded to the World above God! For it is God who has Ordained Man as the Head, not you! Because of your Rebellion you have Taught your Children to Rebel against both you and your husband allowing them to Have Authority over you!!! For you are to have the Same Submission to the Man, to your Husband as to Jesus!!! You may not Agree always with him, but, you need to understand that by you Submitting Authority to your Husband you fulfill the Ordnance of God and Allow God to be Head Of You!!!
Children, does the Scripture not tell you to Obey your Mother and you Father in All Things that you may have a Long Life? Why is it that you Rise up against them who have been Ordained By God to take care of you, to Raise you Up in the Statues of God, that when you enter into society that you also will be a Witness to Who God is in you!!!
Men, again, I Rebuke you with all Authority given to me by Jesus, whom is to Come and have you Account for your Lives! Why is it that the Children Cry out for someone to Teach Them, to Lead Them, to be Men of Integrity, filled with Tenacity, that are Walking in the things of God, Unmovable!!!
Rise up, show forth the Glory of God in Your Lives!!! Jesus said that the Days would be filled with Evil in the Households, but, Jesus did not want this for His House, but knew it would happen!
“34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.”
“12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against [their] parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. 13 And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
“3 But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition? 4 For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to [his] father or [his] mother, [It is] a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me; 6 And honour not his father or his mother, [he shall be free]. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. 7 [Ye] hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.”
The Lord Jesus has had me spend a lot of time on this one subject. You, My Brothers and Sisters need to heed this message, for it has so much weight to it. By how You Perceive the Order Of God is How you will Conduct The Order Of God. There have been so many lies that have infiltrated God’s House, and so many things that have gone to the wayside, because of what you have been taught of those who walk in Disobedience to God.
“And Samuel said, Hath the LORD [as great] delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to hearken than the fat of rams.”
1 Samuel 15:22
“22 For I spake not unto your fathers, nor commanded them in the day that I brought them out of the land of Egypt, concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices: 23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. 24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels [and] in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. 25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending [them]: 26 Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.”
Let not what Jeremiah spoke be said of this Generation. Rise Up, Obey God in All Things! Yes, it is going to Cost you, it will cost you Your Life to Live as God has said to. I would rather die being Obedient than to Face God in Anger for my Disobedience!
Think about it. Weigh your House, your Wife, your Children and let the Fear of The Lord Reign and let it be known Wherever you go and in Whatever you may do, that, Jesus Is Lord!!!
Next week I will continue this Message, “The Characteristics Of Heaven And Earth”.
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
