“Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Many Brothers and Sisters cry out for an Answer finding Silence, finding No Comfort in their Lives. They go to church, they read their Bibles, they are Involved in many Activities, but yet they are empty. They Seek, but cannot Find, they Ask and Receive Not, they Knock but yet the Door Remains Closed…
“Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near [me] with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:”
Brothers and Sisters what good are all of these things, if we do not Know Our God? You can go through all of the actions, you can say all the right stuff and yet be no closer to God, no closer to Jesus then the heathen is… are you Seeking Jesus As Lord? In order for Jesus to be Lord Over Your Life, then you must Study, you Must Walk, You Must Be As God Is, in Your Daily Lives.
There are Earthly things that we do that prove a Process Of Mastery. I cannot wake up one day and decide to be an electrician and go out and start working on power lines, I must first go through the Process Of Mastery, and that is, I must Study To Show My Self Approved Worthy To Do The Job Of Electrician. If I was to attempt to go and do without first studying, I could die, I could burn down a building, I could bring harm to someone else without Proper Training.
Too many do not Understand what it means to have Jesus As Lord, you have been taught Love, to Do Good and You Are Fine…but does not the Heathen Do Likewise?
In order for Jesus to Be Lord, then you Must Be A Disciple, it cannot happen any other way. But most do not even understand what being a Disciple even means, you think you can Pick and Choose what you Will or Will Not Do, that is, wherever you’re Comfort Zone Is. But that is Not The Meaning of being a Disciple. The word Disciple means: a follower or student of a teacher, leader, or philosopher. You cannot be a Disciple…if you do not Desire To Know Whom Jesus Is, Whom The Father Is and Whom The Holy Spirit Is. You can Know Of Them, you can See Their Works, but you would not Know Them.
I have been Studying Whom I Serve for over forty years and I still am learning Whom God Is, but, I Desire To Draw Close To Jesus, to Know Jesus As Lord.
“Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [ye] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [ye] double minded.”
Too many of you are Taught by the Cunningness Of The Enemy, not Understanding what is The Truth or what is a Lie. You Walk according to The Flesh and not according to The Spirit. You Listen, but do not Hear, you See but have No Understanding because those Who Are Teaching You are not Called By Jesus, but called by Man. We are told in Scripture Not to Walk In The Counsel Of The Ungodly…can you even discern Whom Is Ungodly?
“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.”
Too many of you will Run when Your Flesh becomes Uncomfortable to The Working Of The Spirit. Jesus sets before you Wise Council, those Whom He Has Called to guide your path, and because you do not Understand, you Reject those things because of what you have been Taught, not by The Holy Spirit, but by Man and Satan.
“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”
You need to be like the Bereans who Studied The Word Daily to make sure that what is being Spoken, what is being Taught is Truly From God, they just do not Accept without doing so.
“10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming [thither] went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
So, Brothers and Sisters, what or how do we Combat the Flesh against the Spirit. You must first understand that it does not happen overnight, but it is a Life Time Event. You can Study all of your Life and still find that there are yet so many things still you do not know about God, but, if you Desire To Know God, He will Draw close to you and will show you things that only He can.
You also must understand that what You Thought to be Right, may not be Right at all. You must also understand that You Must Let God Be God accepting that His Ways are Not Mans Ways.
“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
So many of you have been Taught this Scripture incorrectly, you think that BAM everything is Brand New when you Accept Jesus as Savior, but that is not what this Scripture is saying. It says “…All Things Are Become New.”, saying, that I used to look at things my way, now I must Learn to See Things Gods Way. Jesus took care of Our Spirit, but Our Soul needs to be Transformed Into Godliness.
“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.”
We Must Change Our Way Of Thinking, it is Unnatural for us to be as God Is, our Flesh wants to Rule. So, we Must Study every day weighing Our Lives against The Word and Accepting That We Must Change in order to Know God, in order to be Acceptable Unto God.
When we Study, we are Becoming Tempered Against The Enemy to be able to Stand. Scripture tells us that we Must Study in order Not To Be Ashamed, Not To Be Over Come By Evil.
“14 Of these things put [them] in remembrance, charging [them] before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, [but] to the subverting of the hearers. 15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane [and] vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”
2 Timothy 2:14-16
Also, when we Study, when we Desire To Know God, then, the Holy Spirit can Help Us to Remember Those Things that Are Godly, to Walk as Jesus would have us to do so. But if, we do not Study, then Holy Spirit looks at us as though we do not Care, do not Desire to Know God and in doing so cannot help us in our infirmities.
“But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”
When you Study The Bible, you are Studying The Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit Who They Are. You Must also do the one most important thing of all…be Obedient To The Word, to The Spirit. You can Study all that you want, but, if you do not Walk In Obedience, then it Profits You Nothing, but that Judgement is sure according to The Word.
Now, there are many ways that God can teach us, but there are a few ways that are Absolute. The First thing that we must do is get a Bible that is as close to the Original Translation as we can get, I use the King James Version, as it is one of the closet Translations. Another is within a Bible Believing Church, that is, one that does not water down the Word, but Is The Word. You can Recognize a True Church by Its Order In The House. If they are Lacking in Order, then they will be Lacking In The Word. Jesus, when He Left Earth, set one of the Offices as Teacher. These Men are Anointed By Jesus to carry out His Understanding To The Body, not anyone can be a Teacher, they Must Be Called.
Another way that Jesus Teaches us is that He will Set People In Our Lives to helps us, guide us and to teach us God’s Ways, not anyone can do this task, but they Must be Set By Jesus in doing so. These People are Anointed to Teach You God’s Ways using many different Avenues, different Tasks, Parables to bring Understanding About God.
But in All Of These, YOU NEED TO STUDY to Verify THE TRUTH! If you are Told to do something, Question the Reason, but unless it is Ungodly, DO IT, FOR THEY WATCH OVER YOUR SOUL, for Jesus has Spoken to them in Understanding that You Do Not Have!! Ask Jesus for Confirmation, His Word and The Holy Spirit MUST AGREE, THEY CANNOT DISAGREE!!!
If you have Any Questions, Any Concerns please contact me at the below email. I am a Servant Of Jesus, Called An Apostle in These Last Days Of The Gentiles, you can Weigh What I Say or Write against the Bible and according to The Holy Spirit and will find No Variance.
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
