“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Abide means: to remain stable or fixed in a state a love that abided with him all his days; to continue in a place; sojourn will abide in the house of the Lord; to conform to abide by the rules; to accept without objection; to acquiesce in will abide by your decision;
Brothers and Sisters are you Abiding In Jesus? Are you Trusting Jesus to be Lord over Your Life? Do You Accept or Reject The Will Of God, His Rules, His Guidance? Many of you say that Jesus is Lord, but is He?
We find in James that Faith Without Works Is Dead, even as the Body without the Spirit Is Dead…
“20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? … 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”
Jas 2:20, 26
Now, we know that it is not Works that Saves us, but, it is Works that Prove Us. There is nothing that we can do in works to become saved. It does not matter what your Works Are, but it is Our Works that Prove that We Are The Children Of God.
To Abide In The Almighty we must Walk According to His Will, Not Our Own and Not According To The World. To Abide In God means that I MUST TRUST God to Provide for My Needs, NOT My Greed’s.
In Matthew we find that The Father will Provide Food, Clothing…if it seems that He is Not, then where lies The Problem?
“31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.”
So, as we have read the Scripture above, we find that Faith, Seeking, (Dis)Obedience and Worry are the Root Causes of our needs not being provided. Jesus said that we are not to Seek after those things that are of necessity, but to Have Faith that, The Father knowing you have these needs to Live, He will Provide. If you Are NOT WALKING IN FAITH then you become Obsessed with Worry, bringing forth Anxiety, Stress, Panic and Anger, bringing forth Disobedience To The Will Of God.
“But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
One of the issues among Brothers and Sisters is What They Are Seeking. Instead of Seeking those things that pertain to The Father and His Will, you Seek after those things to Comfort Your Flesh.
“1 From whence [come] wars and fightings among you? [come they] not hence, [even] of your lusts that war in your members? 2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume [it] upon your lusts. 4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?”
To Abide In The Almighty God means you have to Walk In Faith, Walking In Obedience showing the Good Works of The Father In You through Jesus, who Has Saved Us For The Fathers Glory! God says that many of you are giving God Lip Service, saying one thing and doing the opposite. If you are doing this, expect nothing for you have Your Reward and yet another coming, The Lake Of Fire!
“13 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: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?”
“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.”
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
To Abide In The Almighty God means that both in Good Times or Bad Times…YOU REMAIN FAITHFUL, not being Moveable according to what is going on around you, but Keeping Your Focus ON JESUS!!! This means that it does not matter if I have a job or not, or if a pandemic is raging, or society says we must change, we, The Blood Bought, Will Remain, WE WILL ABIDE IN THE ALMIGHTY GOD!!! For We Live By Faith not by Sight else all that we do and say is in vain!
“1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.”
Brothers and Sisters, we need to get back to The Roots Of Our Faith, back to The Will Of The Father Standing together in One Accord, One Word, One Spirit stopping the Division in which we are at. We need to Abide In The Almighty God With Fear, With Faith, With Obedience should WE be in showing the World God’s Love.
Can you just imagine what would happen if All Of God’s Children would Walk As He Is. Jericho would be a baby step!
“By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.”
In order for the Walls Of Jericho to have fallen…they All Had To Be In…ONE ACCORD…ONE WORD…WALKING IN OBEDIENCE…BEING IN ONE FAITH!!! Just imagine what the World would be like!
To Abide In The Almighty God we must Desire a Relationship, we must Turn Away from Sin, we must Have Faith, without doing so we actually Bind God’s Hands, forcing things to happen that should not.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
God is waiting on us, not the other way around. In the Flesh, do you Reward your child for doing Wrong Against You? Our Faith, Our Walk, To Abide we must Die To Self, Die To Our Desires and above all things Live A Repentant Life, meaning, that Our ways Are NOT GOD’S WAYS! We Must Choose to Walk As God wants us to, He Will Not Force us to.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”
“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”
We Choose Where We Desire To Abide…
Let Us Choose To Abide In
The Almighty God!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
