“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?”
Brothers and Sisters there are some who Walk Among You, who Walk In Deceit who are Not Born Again that need to be dealt with and there are some who Walk Among You who Are Born Again who need to Repent, for their Heart belongs Not To Jesus!
There are many who come for a Social Gathering, Self Esteemed in Hidden Works they think. They Seek Not Jesus as Lord, but Praise Him as Savior having No Fear of Him Who Sits Upon The Throne!
2 Corinthians 2:17
“For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:12
“For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.”
Those of you who are in Leadership, How do you lead? Do you Lead in Obedience or that Grace Is Abound In Freedom? Salvation has a Price and it is Obedience To Jesus in All Things, All Areas Of Life! Are you Walking as the Scribes and Pharisees who gave to the people what would Satisfy Them, to Soothe Their Itching Ears! Jesus, Rebuked the Scribes and Pharisees for such things that brought Disobedience!
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.”
There are too many of you who sit in the Council of the Ungodly, who do Works Of Darkness, believing that Grace Abounds and Mercy has No End! Jesus said that we NEED to Fear Him, because He is able to cast you into the Lake Of Fire For Eternity, but Fear is Not Taught Among You!!
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
“1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
Too many are Singing Songs, Speaking Words that seem Wise, Justifying Your Actions as Godly, Leading many in to Hypocrisy! Jesus made a Statement that NEEDS to be HEEDED, that Not All who call Him Lord will be saved, yet, too many of you have made Him a Liar by your Words and Actions that Speak In Contradiction!!
“21 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. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Understand this… I can Sing all the songs of Praise to Jesus…, I can Speak with Great Words…, I can Do Works that seem Godly, but if I Do Not Walk In Obedience to Jesus, which Requires Us to Make Him Lord Over All Things In Our Lives, Submitting to His Will, which is The Will Of The Father, then Jesus will cast those Who He Does Not Know, into The Lake Of Fire for Eternity. Understand This!!! Salvation, Obedience and Grace Walk as One In Jesus!!!
We Must Walk according to The Word, giving No Place to those who do not, meaning this, that we Must All Walk with a Scale at hand always weighing what we Do and Say and it cannot be just going through the Motions, it Must be a Heart To Live according to The Will Of The Father, a Desire to be All That God Wants.
Understand THIS… I can give a Godly Song to any singer who is not saved and they can seem as though they are. I can give Godly Wisdom to a sinner and they can seem as though they are wise. I can show people that they need to go to church and they can, being Unsaved, I can tell someone to read the Bible and they will SEEM GODLY. They can do all these things and Jesus can still cast them in to The Lake Of Fire!!! It is All About Having A Relationship That Is TRUE With Jesus being Savior and Lord!!!
You want to see Lip Service in Gross Darkness? The church of today is Divided because of Lip Service of Ungodly Proportions, calling Evil Good and Good Evil, following all forms of doctrine!
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Some of you will say that the church is not doing this, but I tell you they are. If we, who claim Jesus as Savior, say we Agree With Him, yet by one subject alone is Evil Counted As Good, that is abortion. How can two people who say they are Born Again, Blood Bought, Disagree on this subject? Yet there are hundreds of other subjects that we Disagree with each other on, yet we call ourselves the church?
But Praise be to Jesus who said that the Gates Of Hell will Not Prevail! There is the church, then there is THE CHURCH!!!
“15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed [it] unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. 18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
The Difference between the church and THE CHURCH is Obedience To The Will Of The Father, not man. Man and Satan argues over the Righteousness Of The church having Lip Service weighing more than The Corner Stone.
We, who are The Church, Must Agree, but in order for us to do so, All Lip Service Must Stop! It comes down to this, if The Word, The Bible says, then we who are Born Again, Blood Bought, must Stand and Be The Word regardless what the World would say. If The Word says that Jesus appointed the Offices of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, Teacher and that The Foundation is Built Upon The Apostles and Prophets, Jesus being The Chief Corner Stone, then who am I to say different? But it is Man and Satan through Lip Service that has all but destroyed what Jesus had set. If you think not, then where have The Apostles, Prophets, (true) Evangelist and (true) Teachers gone? All that remains is the Pastor and most are Shepherds Of Lies! The church is Governed by a Board Of Elected people that will do the Bidding Of those who have set them and not The Will Of The Father, else we would All Agree!
Lip Service goes to the very Marrow Of The Bone, but, Praise Jesus His Word is sharper than any two edge sword and those who Stand With It can cut to the Root Of Evil that has overcome The Church
“For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
“Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
“For many are called, but few [are] chosen.”
1 Corinthians 10:17
“For we [being] many are one bread, [and] one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.”
“[There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;”
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
