“[[To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.]] Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men.”
Brothers and Sisters, whom are Set As Godly Through The Blood Of Jesus Our Lord and Savior, who should be Sober Minded in All Things…Who ARE NOT!!! We are to Walk in Holiness Of God throughout Our Lives, always showing the Presence of Jesus, whom is part of the Godhead, Father, Son and Holy Spirit AS ONE, so should we be One In Them! In our Society today, the Church, has become a joke, a House Filled of Blasphemers!!!
The average at best for a congregation to be in a church setting is Two Hours. 20 Minutes of Preaching, 20 Minutes of Singing, 1 Hour of Bible Study, 20 Minutes of Social Interaction, these are approximate, these are Mandated By A Board…Not God!!! This is more for the “Civilized Society”, but in “Third World Countries”, they spend a Day In Church! When Jesus was here, when He Spoke, He could be there for Hours Teaching The Word Of God…the People…Hungered For God!!!
Today, many pat the “Pastor” on the back, saying “…that was a good message…”, but taking nothing with them to Apply In Their Own Lives. The Pastor, whom is one of the Five Fold (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher), is supposed to Preach Messages Pertaining to How We Should Live and then Follow Through to see that the Congregation is doing so. For, is he not a “Shepherd” and what Shepherd does not make his sheep follow his lead?
The Scriptures tell us that we are to be Sober Minded, that is, someone who is serious, sensible and logical in Their Lives Mandated By Jesus!!!
“But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.”
1 Thessalonians 5:8
“1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. 3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. 7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine [shewing] uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.”
WHERE is this being done!!! Do you not understand that Godliness becomes The Holiness Of God for man! Most do not take God Seriously for their own lives, but they will take the “Pastors Reflection”, who is not living a Godly Life and be as he is! In our Society, the “Aged Men” and “Aged Women” are not Teaching the Children…, but they themselves need to be Re-taught the things concerning God!!!
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
“12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk [is] unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
When Godly Men and Women become Un-sober, Disobedient, then they Teach The Children likewise… then, when the Children Grow Up they become Our Leaders, being Un-sober and Disobedient!!! You need to have this Understanding, if you do not, the “Aged Men and Women” in the above Scriptures are the ones that have Lived By, In and Through God’s Holy Word, and indeed Jesus Is Their Lord. The Children being both a New Believer who is a Babe in Christ, but it also means those who are Unskilled, Tossed To and Fro In Doctrine and Society losing the Salty Flavor of Jesus…
“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.”
We, Brothers and Sisters need to be Sober Minded In All Things, presenting our Lives as Living Sacrifices before the World, showing them How to Live Godly, Holy Lives. We are The Book that the World Reads every day…so, What Are They Reading?
We must be Transformed into Godliness becoming Holy that the World may know that We Are The Children Of God, that WE Are Royal Ambassadors Representing Jesus On Earth! For now, I see Babes, instructing Babes having the Holiness Of God Diluted and Replaced With Sin!!!
“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.”
“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
In The People Of God there are too many Cloaks that are hidden, too many Secrets that the People Of God having become Unholy in Word and Deed, presenting to the World that God Is Dead!!!
“3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as [they were] from the beginning of the creation.”
2 Peter 3:3-4
“1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, [and commanding] to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”
1 Timothy 4:1-5
We, Brothers and Sisters, should be Walking In The Holiness Of God in our Lives, for too many are being led by Seducing Spirits that are Contrary to The Word Of God and to The Holy Spirit, speaking things that we should not, doing things that we should not and Teaching Others to do likewise!
“19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed [the righteousness] of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
“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.”
Where are The Holy Men and Women of God? Why do they Sleep, keeping Silent? Do you not understand that we will stand in Judgement, being held Accountable to the Holiness Of God in which we should Live, being Sober Minded in All Things, Teaching Others to be likewise!!! But, if those who Know, those who are The Godly, Holy Men and Women Of God keep Silent then do you Teach Others that God Is NOT HOLY, that His Word Is NOT HOLY, that SIN Is AN ACCEPTABLE TRAIT!
When The Lord Jesus sends me someone to council, I will Say & I will Do whatever The Holy Spirit leads me to Say or Do, and many times it is harsh. There are time that those whom I speak to get Mad, Angry at what is being told them that they must do, but I … must continue to Stand In The Holiness Of God Speaking The Truth, NO MATTER WHAT!!!! For In The Holiness Of God I Do Fear God, for He Is A JUST and HOLY GOD whom I Love, Cherish and do my best to be Obedient In All Of MY LIFE to Serve Him as My Friend, My Savior…My God!!! Too many of you Fear Man more than you do God, serving them Above 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.”
In The Holiness Of God we Must Walk, for The Father said, Be Ye Holy Even AS I Am HOLY!
“Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I [am] the LORD your God.”
“Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:16
In The Holiness Of God we Must lay down our Lives, putting God, Above All Things, no matter what. It is Not Easy at times, it is Not Fun at times, it is Not Acceptable In Society, but We Must Strive each moment of the day to do our best to be In The Holiness Of God, it is…A Choice that You Have To Make and Keep!!! There is nothing that should stand in our way in doing so, for We have been given The Power and Authority from Jesus to be Overcomers Against Sin, fighting Against The Anti-Christ Spirit that is Destroying God’s House. But as always It Is YOUR CHOICE!!!!
In The Holiness Of God?
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
