“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Brothers and Sisters where is Your Heart? Do You Burn for the things of God? Have You Truly Laid All Things IN YOUR Life at the Foot of Jesus? The Actions of the Faithful will be Manifested and The Actions of the Unfaithful will be Manifested.
If Jesus is Truly Lord Of YOUR Life, then All that YOU Do and Say will be a Manifestation of His Spirit within you.
“But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep [it], and bring forth fruit with patience.”
“16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
If you have Truly Given Your Life to Jesus, then those things that are Corruptible, those things that are Ungodly, those things that are in Disobedience MUST be Changed into Godliness. Your Life will Reflect who you Truly Are, it cannot do otherwise.
“11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up [their] voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw [them], he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on [his] face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where [are] the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.”
One out of Ten Recognized The Power Of God in His Life, Recognized The Mercy Of God, Recognized that Grace had Been Given and Separated Himself from the Crowd…Bringing Glory To Jesus By His Words and Deeds! This man’s Heart was On Jesus, he Could Not Help Himself, but to Go To The Master Of His Life. The One who Changed His Life from Diseased to being Healed
Now, what does that say about the Nine who did not Glorify Jesus? Some would say they were just following what Jesus had told them to do. Some would say they did not realize that they were healed until they were down the road. But, we need to really see what Jesus said… “…Were there not ten cleansed? But Where are the Nine?…” Jesus already knew the answer, but what He was doing was showing Where Their Hearts Were At. The Nine took for granted, and did not Humble themselves enough to be In God’s Presence. We could even go as far as to say they were Prideful and Arrogant.
To be able to Recognize Jesus in Your Life, you Must Change from Darkness to Light, you Must Have A Desire To Be What Jesus Wants YOU To Be…that is, He Is FIRST ABOVE ALL THINGS!
Brothers and Sisters this Speaks of Your Faith, WHERE IS IT? The Treasure of Your Heart Reveals WHO you are in Jesus. If Every Decision is not made with The Counsel Of Jesus FIRST then, YOU ARE IN CONTROL!!! Now there are those who would be ignorant, that would say… “…well I do not ask to Eat… I do not ask to go to the Bathroom… I do not ask to go to Work… I do not ask What to Wear in Clothes… I do not ask about having Sex…” and the list goes on… IN YOUR CONTROL!
These things are Evidence of Where Your Heart Truly Is!
Do I Stop and Ask Jesus about Everything? NO I do not, but, I am Always Listening To The Holy Spirit To Direct My Life…IN ALL THINGS. From the time I arise until the time I fall to sleep My Mind, My Heart, My Desire is Fixed On Jesus AS LORD OVER MY LIFE!!!
“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.”
Now there are Two Problems here. First, you may not be Listening to What Jesus Has Said, second you by choice, are walking in Disobedience and Your Heart Proves it. Jesus said that we cannot be Two Different Things At THE SAME TIME it is Impossible! But if Your Heart is Truly Seeking Jesus In YOUR LIFE, then Everything that You Do and Say will be to Jesus First before You Proceed.
I will give you one example in my Life. I had been Unemployed since October 2020, so since then I had been Seeking Jesus everyday, as I always do before doing anything, to find a job. Going to different websites applying for jobs that I could do, but always Listening To The Holy Spirit For Guidance. In January 2021 The Lord Jesus said to Stop Looking for work, that He had one for me. But see, I had No Calls, No Emails stating that Fact. I had No Other Person Prophecy to me, but Only Jesus Who Is Lord Of My ENTIRE LIFE! About three weeks after The Lord Jesus said stop looking for work, I got a Phone Call from a company for my First Interview and since then have had another Interview. After a few days I was told that they wanted to hire me as long as I could pass a Background Check and Reference Check. I have had to pass the Background Check, and I had to have Three References…now I am proceeding with filling out paperwork. I told that my start date would not be until April 2021.
The point of this is My Treasure, My Heart is for Wanting to Do Jesus Will IN ALL OF MY LIFE, if it had not been so, then I would not have been Obedient in Not Looking for work anymore, I would have kept looking because I did not have one.
When Caleb and Joshua went into the Land Of Canaan they said that the Land was flowing with Milk and Honey, that there were also Giants In The Land, but they said, BY Faith and Actions, that they were more than able to go forth into the land that God The Father was giving them.
“And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.”
“25 And they returned from searching of the land after forty days. 26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land. 27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this [is] the fruit of it. 28 Nevertheless the people [be] strong that dwell in the land, and the cities [are] walled, [and] very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. 30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it. 31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they [are] stronger than we. 32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, [is] a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it [are] men of a great stature. 33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [which come] of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
You must understand Caleb and Joshua Trusted The Father with All Their Hearts, they Trusted that if The Father Said, then IT MUST BE. But the only Evidence that they had was Fruit that they had brought back with them. They had Not Possessed the land yet. In Mans Eyes, the Odds were against them, In Mans Eyes they Could Not do what The Father Said, to them Slavery In The Flesh was better than Obedience To The Father, than Having Faith and Trusting Him!
We Must Walk by The Word and by The Spirit in our Lives every moment of the day, no matter what we are doing or saying. When you do not Walk In Obedience then you Grieve The Holy Spirit by Not Following His Guidance, His Lead in Doings or Saying.
“And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”
Brothers and Sisters Examine your Lives, True Faith is Walking In Obedience rather you have Proof or Not in the thing that Proceeds You. If The Word Says, then Trust, Have Faith that In Jesus it will come to pass according to His Will, His Time…NOT YOURS. Everything that Jesus has me write, I must First Examine Myself to see where I Stand before it ever reaches you or anyone else. Walking In Faith can be scary if you have not experienced the Love that Jesus has for you. It can be Frustrating to The Flesh at times because the Flesh and The Spirit do not agree, but always fighting for Control.
“Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.”
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”
What Is The Heart
Of Your Matter?
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
