Where we Walk, What We Do, What We Say Manifest into Light or Darkness at every moment of Time. We Live in a World where Light and Dark must dwell together, that we, being Blood Bought By Jesus have little choice or do we?
Science says that if you take a Cat at birth and give it to a Dog that just had a litter, that the Cat while growing up will start to carry traits of the Dog, being that is all that it knows to do…other than genetics.
So, like wise are we in the midst of the heathen that we must dwell with, in Sustaining Life. In other words, we must, for the most part, Work and Dwell among the Heathen.
“28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
The Blood Bought are the Wheat, the Heathen being Unsaved, are the Tares, so in this, the Last Days Of The Gentiles, we Must Dwell Together until the Great Harvest, that is, Jesus Return.
We go to the Market and both reside, we go to work and both reside, we go to buy clothes and both reside, we live in neighborhoods and both reside, we go to church and both reside. No matter where you go or what you do both The Blood Bought and Heathen are together.
So then we come to this set of Scriptures that cover Us, The Blood Bought by Jesus, The Christ.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18
“14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
These set of Scriptures Demands us to be Separated From The Heathen, in All Ways. Now, this seems to be a Contradiction of what Our Lord Jesus wants, but, it is not. You can be Separated and still be together, except in one area, that is, marriage. Marriage must be, without question, a Born Again Believer to another Born Again Believer. The only exception to this rule is if two heathen get married and one become a Born Again Believer and the other does not, then there is another Spiritual Law for this, that we will not write of now. Now back to the main topic.
What this means is, that Who You Are is Not Who They Are, for we both Serve Masters, but Not The Same Master. The Blood Bought, The Saved, The Churches Master, King, Lord, Savior is Jesus, The Son Of God The Father, for the Heathen it is The World and all that is in it, Their Flesh and Satan The Prince of The World.
One of the things that The Blood Of Jesus did for us, was to make a Separation between God and Satan, to give us Redemption from the Sin that Satan Orchestrated with Eve in the garden. The Blood of Jesus also gave us the Ability to Become, Become, Become the Son and Daughters Of God…Freely Of Our Own Free Will!
So then, Where is The Separation? Jesus said that we all Bear Fruit and it is by that Fruit that we will know Their Root Whom They Serve.
“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.:
“10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet [water] and bitter? 12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so [can] no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.”
Our Separation starts from Within and is Manifested Outwardly. Jesus says there is No Choice in His Acceptance Of You, that it is Not by mere works, nor is it by merely asking Jesus to Save You, but it is the Combination of the two.
“9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
“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.”
The two should NOT be Separated, but many have made them so, Not Understanding that doing so, Salvation Is Lost! Jesus said that we cannot be Yoked to The World and be in His Grace, but that Grace is found in Our Will to Separate ourselves from The World that we live in.
In other words, you can be Friendly to a Neighbor, but not be Friends. You can be Respectful to All People, but not let them Persuade. I can go to the Market, to Work, to School, on Vacation and be In Jesus Will as long as I Separate Myself From The Heathen.
So again, what does this mean? When I go into a Restaurant I bow my head giving Thanks to Jesus for the Food I am receiving, among the heathen. When I Drive my car that I do not get into a Rage as ours do. That when I Speak, Jesus is always at The Center of my conversation. To give Help either to a Heathen or Believer with equality, without comprise.
For we are to Walk, Talk and Be in The Spirit of God at all times, both in Season and Out Of Season. That Our Love is to the Household Of Faith before the Heathen. In this that The Blood Bought comes before the Heathen in All Areas Of Life, that Our Lord Jesus said that by This Love the World would know WE are His Disciples.
“By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
Yes, this Scripture is Two Fold. We are to Love the Household Of Faith, preferring them over the heathen, yet at the same time showing The Love Of Jesus towards the Heathen.
It is like this, I can hire a person based on Whom They Are In Jesus. If there are Two People both having the same Qualifications, but one is Born Again and the other is a Heathen, we should Hire the Born Again first, unless The Holy Spirit leads us otherwise. The Preference is to Like Minded People and Same Spirits Governing.
You can do this in All Areas Of Life, but understanding this, we Must Be Separated from the Heathen in All Things if possible, abiding by The Word and Holy Spirit.
In order for True Separation to happen, we MUST start with ourselves, that there MUST be a Transformation from The Flesh to The Spirit. In Corinthians it tells us Two Parts, One, we are a New Creature because of The Blood Of Jesus, Two, that the Way We Where BECOMES NEW BY TRANSFORMATION from The Flesh to The Spirit.
2 Corinthians 5:17
“Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
The other thing that goes with the above Scripture is that Our Thinking, Our Minds, MUST change from how we used to see things to seeing things From God’s Point Of View and having an Outwardly Manifestation Of God’s View IN OUR LIVES, IN WORD and DEED!
“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.”
“Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”
By these Scriptures we Become Separated from The World, but it is Our Choice. There are some who would go to church, sing in a choir, go to Christian gatherings, have positions of authority, but yet are a Heathen, Lost, having No Redemption Of Sin, their Root still belongs to The World and outside the Realm of Believers they act as the Heathen do. This is Unacceptable to Jesus!
Read the Seed Sower (Matthew 13:3 – 9 & Matthew 13:18 – 23), there is ONLY one that Bared Fruit and they were Rooted In Jesus in Word and Deed.
So Yokes are for Control of Whom they are place on. They Guide and Direct the Path they must walk on. I myself bear two yokes, one being a Blood Bought Of Jesus, The Christ, two being made an Apostle to bear the True Foundation, Jesus being The Chief Corner Stone, but all must have at the very least the One Yoke, that Separates Us From The World!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
