Today’s message will be a breakdown of one particular Scripture. The Examination of One’s Life is a never ending process, we are to weigh all attributes no matter how Small or Large they may be.
“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
Brothers and Sisters, For Whom Is Lord? There are many of you that Live Your Lives in the Shadow Of Others that are Not Godly. There are many of you that make Decisions based on Your Experience Of Life in Your Self or Others. There are many of you that Justify Your Selves By Your Own Reasoning!
“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.”
Let me go through some scenarios of this…
You are a Baby in Jesus, there are many questions that flood your mind and you’re seeking answers, but the answers that you seek are only to satisfy your conscious. So, Whom you Seek are those of Common Situations, those who you feel will understand you in your situation. You talk among yourselves coming to Your Own Conclusion and Walking There In…
You have been in the Church awhile, reading the Bible, Praying somewhat but You are Not Growing, You are Not Maturing in God as He Desires you to… So, Jesus tells a Faithful Servant, an Obedient Child, go Tell them This or Tell them That, instead of you being Obedient to the One that Jesus Sent, You Reason within yourself what you are told to do, and you, along with Satan, come up with Excuses Of Why You Cannot Do As Requested Of Jesus. You Justify Your Disobedience With Excuses!
You seem to be Faithful, trying to Mature, trying to be Obedient, but You Base this off of those Within The Church who are Not being as such and who are Leading You Astray. An example: let say that on a Sunday there is a Football, Baseball or Soccer Game on and it starts at 11:30 AM. It involves your favorite team or maybe it is the Play Offs. The Congregation, the Pastor wants to have a Short Message so that you or they can Attend To The Desire, leaving Jesus, alone.
You attend a Church that Believes a certain way. They base their Existence only on a Few Key Scriptures to Justify themselves to be a Church. They only give Messages that Solidify Who They Are and What They Believe in. An example of this: The Catholic Church Prays to Mary, Prays to Saints, Prays to The Father, but Jesus said, it is Only Through Me and No One Else or a Church that Believes that Once Saved Always Saved, that you cannot lose your Salvation, even though there are Scriptures that say different and is called Blasphemy Of The Holy Spirit or a Church that Believes in Spiritual Gifts and Flaunt them above Jesus by “Allowing The Spirit To Move” or a Church that thinks they are the Only True Church and that they have All Of The Answers. There are many more that could be mentioned.
“Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Brothers and Sisters do You Not Understand that Jesus is Judge and Jury, carrying out the Sentence? That it is Only Through Jesus are we Justified and Only By His Word are we Justified!
There are many of you that Jesus wants to Direct Your Path, but you Refuse Wise Council that He Has Sent. In the Old Testament The Father sent many Prophets, many Massagers and they were killed by those whom The Father was trying to Direct, to give them Guidance On How To Change To His Ways. Today, you Kill those whom Jesus Sends by Your Disobedience, by The Hardening Of Your Heart, by Ignoring and by Doing Your Own Hearts Desire.
The Father has put things in His Order, for His Glory and this is Carried Out Through Jesus whom All Power and All Authority has been given. The Fathers Word, Jesus, WILL NOT CHANGE; it is the Same Today, as it Was Yesterday and as it Will Be In The Future!
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
The Scales should always be that Jesus is on the one side and Your Life is on the other side, which side weighs the most, Is Lord Of Your Life!
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”
If you or I think or compare things to what We Believe Is Right, then we have become as The World, but let us in all things Weigh what we Do, what we Say, to Whom We Have Council, let All Be Compared To Jesus Word Only! In the Church there are those who are Godly and there are those who are Ungodly, but All Can Be Weighed By The Word Of God!!! For if there is one who Lifts themselves up, turn and RUN! If there are those who do not Live Their Lives according to The Word…RUN!! If you find yourself Justifying Your Actions and Your Actions Turn In To Disobedience…REPENT!!!
There is always a Scale that is set before me and I Weigh Everything against The Word, against The Holy Spirit. I am Directed All The Day Long By Scales that Balance My Life. My Thoughts are towards Jesus that Dictates My Direction. But I must Yield Myself, again, I MUST YIELD MYSELF to Jesus as Lord Of MY LIFE. This means that, my Language must be Acceptable To Jesus, that my Actions must be Acceptable To Jesus, that means that my Job must be Acceptable To Jesus, that means that my Spouse must be Acceptable To Jesus, that means that my Friends must be Acceptable To Jesus, in All Of This… I BECOME ACCEPTABLE TO JESUS!!! But this only works for those who Desire To Be Obedient, to those Who Love Jesus, to those Who Accepts Jesus AS LORD!!!
I dare NOT to Compare Myself with Myself, for my Flesh is weak, I dare NOT to Compare Myself with those who are Not Godly, for I would fall into sin, I DO Dare To Compare Myself With The Word Of God that I will be Judged Righteously!
Again, let me show you how this Scripture Works. If Jesus sends to me a servant of his and that servant tells me that I need to do this or that I need to do that and I Decide Not To Obey, then have I Compared Myself With Myself in making a Decision, making me Disobedient falling into Sin. If a servant again tells me… and I go and seek Council Of Those of Like Mind With Me, then have I Compared Myself With Those Who Commend Themselves, making me Disobedient falling into Sin. If The Word says for me to be This Way or to be That Way and I Decide Not to do such a thing, then again, I Compare Myself With Myself…
The Five Fold Offices were setup by Jesus for a Reason. That is, The Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher were set to Bring Us Into Maturity. These are to Keep Us in check, but what has happened is that Satan and Man have done away with most and now Compare Themselves Among Themselves, Justifying Their Sin and Your Sin!!!
Seek after Jesus above all things, Seek after The Godly Council that Jesus Gives, turn from your wicked ways, Repent and Jesus who is Full Of Grace and Mercy will help you to change. If you Desire Jesus to be Lord, then Change Must take place, and the First Change is to Stop Comparing Yourself By Yourself and to Stop Comparing Yourself with those who Do Not Seek After Jesus To Change!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
