“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.”
Brothers and Sisters, if we are Like Books, how do the World and other Brothers and Sisters Read You? Do they see a Separation of an Ungodly Life Style or do they see that you are One With the Heathen? Does your Language speak forth Godliness or do you Curse, having No Thought to that in which you Curse? Are you Men and Women of Honor, is Your Words as good as Gold?
“[But] thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.”
We, Brothers and Sisters need to Understand that we are to be a Just Weight before All Of Mankind. The Scripture above dealt with the Buying and Selling of Goods. That Israel was to be Honest in All Of Their Dealings, they were not to Short-Change anyone. In the case of this Scripture, they would use a Scale, that would have weight of a certain ounce to pounds (they did not deal in Ounces and Pounds, but shekels and bushels) then they would take from the seller the item and weight it against their Weights in Buying and Selling. There is a more to this, but, a Man or Woman is measured by The Lord Jesus and He is Our Just Weight against Our Lives.
“13 Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small. 14 Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small. … 16 For all that do such things, [and] all that do unrighteously, [are] an abomination unto the LORD thy God.”
In other words, you cannot be One Way in Private and be something else In Public, the Measure should be equal! But yet I know that among God’s House, His People, The Blood Bought, that you do this Abomination. You put on a Cloak to Appear to others that you are a “Christian”, but within you filled with Deceit, Lying, Unjust Manipulations! Jesus DEMANDS for us to of a Just Weight in the Life He has given us. That we bear witness of His Glory in us and through us!!
“15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: 16 As free, and not using [your] liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. 17 Honour all [men]. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.”
1 Peter 2:15-17
Our Accountability before Jesus is Great and He expects us to Show The World through Our Works, Our Speech and Our Mannerism that Jesus Is Lord Over Our Lives!!! There are many of you that Honor The World before you Honor The Lord or even Your Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus. If the Honor that we show is not further proof that Jesus Is Lord, then whom do you Honor?
“34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
We are Commanded to Love One Another, this is a Two-Fold Commandment. We are to Show the World God’s Love by Our Speech, and Our Actions. In this, we are to Love The Brothers and Sisters Honorably, which means, that we are to bear witness of one another that Jesus Is Lord!
This one Commandment is broken among God’s People, The Blood Bought. You have filled your Hearts, your Homes, Your Lives with Hatred, Deceit and Manipulation against each other, saying, “We Believe…” yet it is No Where to be found in Scripture. This Abomination of the House Of God being split and having different doctrine to Their Own Just Weight is a Sin against Jesus, less these Scriptures be a lie…
“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.”
The Book that the World Reads is that we, Brothers and Sisters, The Blood Bought, are a Dysfunctional Family, being filled with Lies, Deceit, Manipulations, and Dishonorable, serving a God with a bad reputation! There have been many, many people that as soon as I said I was a Christian would turn a deaf ear to me because of the Reputation that The House of God has presented. The younger generations have cried out at one time for Mentors that are Honorable, Accountable, Honest and God Fearing, but were left with Teachers of False Doctrine!
You, Church, have shed your Accountability To God, To Jesus and have Grafted In Worldly Standards, having not a Just Weight, but excuses. This is from Husbands to Wives, Wives to Husbands, Parents to Children and Children to Parents. This is from our Neighbors we know and see, that we tell them Loud and Clear whom our god is!!! We, Brothers and Sisters are Living Epistles to each other and to The World!
“1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, as some [others], epistles of commendation to you, or [letters] of commendation from you? 2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men: 3 [Forasmuch as ye are] manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.”
2 Corinthians 3:1-3
For, those who are truly Godly, rather men or women are to Teach through Example and by Word the younger in the ways they should Live before Jesus. Jesus is a Just Weight, measuring Precept upon Precept, Line upon Line Our Words and Our Actions is He a Just Judge, who has laid before us a Foundation that cannot move.
“9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? [them that are] weaned from the milk, [and] drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept [must be] upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, [and] there a little:”
“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.”
In order to be a Good Book To Read we must change from that we have known to that which we have not known, leaving behind the Flesh and Walking in The Spirit, Justified By Faith, Showing The World Godliness, by Words and Actions. If there is No Change, if there is No Re-Write Of Our Mannerism, then we Condemn Ourselves and the World Around Us.
“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
“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.”
Brothers and Sisters, All Things Need To BECOME NEW; the way we Think, the way we Talk, and Our Actions need to Change. We used to do things one way, but now, we must Learn to do things in a Godly Way. This can only be accomplished by the Renewing Of Our Minds, that WE, Brothers and Sisters present to The World a Book Worthy to be Read, that when the World Reads Us, they See and Hear Jesus!!!
The Scriptures above say, “…that ye may prove…”, it is not God whom we must Prove to, because it is God who is already Just In Weight, but it is the World and each other that must Prove those things that are Good, Acceptable and Perfect in God’s Will!
God The Father, The Son and Holy Spirit have given you a Free Will to Choose how you will Live Your Life, whether you Choose Right By God, or Sin Unto Death, God will Allow You to make that Choice. We, Brothers and Sisters, have No Excuses for Not Living a Godly Life, Jesus has Paid Our Price to be Acceptable to The Father and has given us The Power and Authority to be more than Conquers in this World.
“37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
There is only one thing that makes the Scriptures above False and that is The Choices You Make and by Your Choices do you cause a Separation between you and Jesus. Jesus said that IF, IF, IF WE LOVE HIM, then WE WILL KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS!
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
So, what Book is everyone reading? Does it Present a Holy God? Is it Presenting a Life Giving Lord? As always, the Choice remains yours, God is The Publisher, You are The Writer…
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
