“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
Brothers and Sisters we are Sanctified through The Word, by Our Acceptance Of The Word. The Bible is the Written Word Of God, but to those who are the True Blood Bought, it is The Living Word Of God. Now, with that being said, the Word is only Living if you Allow The Acceptance There Of.
Too many Divide, Dice, Microscope, Dig, Seek to make The Word Fit Them, instead of Them Fitting The Word. Those who should be Teaching, are Not Teaching The Truth, but are teaching those things that will Comfort The Flesh.
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;”
How can this be? Is Jesus the one at fault or is Satan the one or is it Man’s Fault? First thing, Jesus is Not To Blame!!! We need to dig a little deeper to find The Fault and Who Is The Blame. Yes, we could stop on the Scripture above, but it does not give the Details In The Truth.
We first must Understand that Satan is a Real Living Being that has Power and Authority on this earth. We need to also Understand that Satan goes by Many Many Different Names and uses Many, Many Different Tactics.
“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.”
“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!”
“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.”
“But when the Pharisees heard [it], they said, This [fellow] doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils.”
“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”
There are many more names that have been given to Satan, but we will not dwell on them. But we do need to Understand that he goes by many, many different names in The Word, and has many, many names given to him in this world that we will not mention at this time.
We must also Understand what Purpose does Satan have… he has been given Power and Authority to a point over the Earth and its Inhabitants to Destroy God, that is, The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. Satan will use Whatever he can and Whenever he can to get to You, The Blood Bought, to fall into Sin. He wants to Destroy The Work Of Jesus by any means.
One of the most notorious moves of Satan is Division. He Divides Bibles, Churches, Families, Society as a whole. If he can get you to stray just a little, making the Truth into a Half-Truth then he wins that battle.
Let’s see some examples…Scriptures tells us that there is One God, One Lord, One Baptism, One Faith …
“4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.”
But here we are, The Blood Bought, with approximately over 70 Different Bibles, this is not counting Language Translations. This in itself creates a Big Problem, does the Scripture above not say One Lord, One God? If that is the case then the only reason to have 70 Different Bibles is because of Division, that is, Not Agreeing In The Flesh or In Spirit.
Now, we do not only have 70 Different Bibles, but we have approximately 60 Different Denominations including Non-Denomination Churches!
So, let’s do the math here real quick… that is approximately 4200 Divided Differences that the Blood Bought’s have!!! This does not include Differences among the Body based on Fleshly Desires. But again, The Word, The Scriptures, say there is One Lord, One Faith, One God, One Body.
The Word tells us that Satan is out to Kill, Steal and Destroy anything to deal with God The Father.
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.”
Now if Satan is out to do these things how does he do so? In Ephesians, we are told that Satan Throws Fiery Darts…
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.”
If Satan is using Fiery Darts what is his aim at? Satan does not care about the World and those who do not Know Jesus, they belong to him, but it is at the Blood Bought that these Fiery Darts are aimed for and to those around us that can be influenced but his craftiness. All Satan has to do is Throw A Dart of Misleading Words and then it is up to us what to do with what he has thrown. The Scripture above tells the Answer, it is Our Faith that we Must Use to Combat The Enemy and not Our Flesh.
So, how does this work? Let us say that someone says, “I Love You…”, but the other person heard “I Loathe You…” that would start a fight. I have literally seen and have experienced this in my own Life. Words can be Mis-Heard or they can be taken in the Wrong Context of its original intent, all because Satan Throw’s A Dart To Divide in some fashion. This can happen in a Family, Church, Work or Society, Satan Does Not Care!
We, The Blood Bought, need to be Vigilant, meaning, we need to be aware of the Adversaries Tricks and Stand Against them IMMEDIATELY!!! Why must I be Vigilant, Why must I do something Immediately? Jesus gave us the answer…
“When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth [it] not, then cometh the wicked [one], and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.”
Yes, this is dealing with the Kingdom Of God, but the principle is the same, “…then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown…”. Satan does the same Work over and over again trying to cause Division.
Now, some of this does deal with Our Faith not only in Jesus, but also in each other. If we, The Blood Bought, are truly Bought By Jesus, then, among the Brothers and Sisters there should be No Ill Heart Towards Each Other On Anything! Again How does this happen? In some cases, in most cases actually, is when we take our Eyes Off Jesus and Believe The Lie Of Satan or The World. It is the same even as when Peter took his Eyes Off Jesus on the waters did he begin to sink into Unbelief. Peter Allowed, again, Peter Allowed himself to Believe The Storm Over Jesus, and in doing so fell into Sin.
“27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth [his] hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.”
Jesus is the Living Word Of The Father and He dwells In Us, The Blood Bought! If The Word dwells in us, then, there can be No Division Except That Which WE ALLOW! This means that I must be Vigilant 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make sure that Satan does not lead me astray.
“8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”
We must be One Together, Standing Together in All Battles keeping in Mind Always that there is Only One Lord, One God and One Word!!! Satan cannot win if we do so, but it is only when We Allow the Fiery Darts to Burn Within Us that we Fall, that of Our Own Choices. We must take every Word weighing it always, knowing the Spirit Behind it, whether it is of God or of Satan, and then take Appropriate Action.
“There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them [is] without signification.”
“We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.”
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
