Every person on the face of the Earth has some type of issue, rather in the Flesh or Mind or Spirit. But, Praise Jesus, He has come to Deliver us all, through Repentance, through Obedience, through a Relationship. Jesus has bore our Sins, our Infirmities to give us a more Abundant Life…so then, why does it seem that all of these things are of a time that has past?
Matthew 10:34-39 KJV
“34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household. 37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”
Do you Understand that to Pick Up Your Cross can mean the Separation of those whom you are acquainted with. This means, starting from the World first, your Boss, your Co-workers, your Friends, your Associations. How severe is this? If Jesus said that He came Not To Bring Peace, then why are we so Peaceful with Our Enemies? Even further are those of Our Own Homes that should be Our Enemies.
It is easy to disregard those who are in the World that we work around, but it becomes harder when it come to friends we have spent a Life Time with. Even more so, is it the Hardest to cast a Father, Mother, Son, Daughter, Stepson, Stepdaughter, Son In Law, Daughter In Law aside to Honor Jesus! For some their Cross that they bear is of great weight.
Jesus says, Jesus Demands that No One and Nothing, not even ourselves, are to Separate Us From Him and the Glorious Work He has done!
Romans 8:35-39 KJV
“35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 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.”
So many people have been taught incorrectly about the above Scriptures. They have been taught that there is Absolutely Nothing that can Separate You from Jesus and this is a Lie!!! There are those who say “Once Saved, Always Saved”, but where does that fit within the sets of Scriptures presented thus far? Jesus SAID, that if there is Not A Separation from those who do not know Him, who do not have a Relationship with Him, that WE are NOT WORTHY OF JESUS!!! So then, in the Scriptures in Romans, above, there is One Thing that is Not in the list… YOU!
Any of the things that are mentioned through Scripture this far can Separate You from Jesus Love. Just to make it clear, I’ll put them in a Readable List…
Son In Law
Daughter In Law
Things To Come
Not one of these things can Separate Us from Jesus, but yet everything mentioned CAN Separate You From Jesus…BY YOUR CHOICE!!! In which is why you are not mentioned within the list, because You have Control over these things through Jesus in Obedience to Him.
Isaiah 59:2 KJV
“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he will not hear.”
Many of you have been Separated from Jesus and do not even know it. You think that you are in Jesus Grace to Live however you want to, but you Do Not Understand His Grace. Jesus Grace is a Time given to you to Repent, to Change Your Ways, to Live as He Commands. The Hour is quickly coming when Our Lord Jesus will return.
Too many of you ignore Scripture to satisfy Your Flesh, saying we need to Re-Interpret The Scriptures to get them Modernized, Socially Acceptable! Does Jesus need to be Re-Classified, Re-Interpreted?
Hebrews 13:8 KJV
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Picking Up Our Cross is sometimes hard to bear, but through the Power and Authority given to us by Jesus and The Holy Spirit, we can be More Than Conquerors. The Knowledge of the Scriptures easy, the Understanding of the Scripture is more difficult and the Wisdom of the Scriptures are the most hardest, many of you stop at Knowledge. Out of the three Knowledge is the most dangerous, you can Read the Bible from cover to cover and even do some of what it says in the Name Of Jesus and still be condemned to The Lake Of Fire!
2 Timothy 3:7 KJV
“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
The “Knowledge Of THE Truth” is the Understanding and Wisdom in being in a Relationship with Jesus. We all have a Cross that we must bear, there is no way around it, but there are those who are Truly Saved By Grace that can and will help you and encourage you…but it is still Your Choice to Walk In Obedience To Jesus.
I have longed for a Relationship with my children, but we are separated through lies, and I will Not Compromise my Relationship with Jesus to have them in my Life. For it is Jesus that has Sacrificed His Life, Shed His Blood to Cleanse Me, given me Grace and Mercy to Live His Ways…not my children, nor anyone nor nothing else.
Jesus said that in Bearing Our Cross we must Endure Until The End Of Our Lives in order to Please Him…
Matthew 24:13 KJV
“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
The Cross I bear is heavier than most and not as heavy as others have had to bear, but in any case we are all equally required to Bear Our Cross in this Life unto Eternal Glory!
Stop allowing the Scriptures to be changed to an Acceptable Way Of Life. The same Word, the same Spirit, the same Jesus is Equal to all Unchangeable!!! No matter what anyone says, there is only One Living Word, One Living Holy Spirit and only One Jesus whom will be Our Judge.
Ephesians 4:4-6 KJV
“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.”
Anyone who has told you that Accepting Jesus would be an Easy Life has told you a Lie. Walking with Jesus, having a Relationship With Him is not easy by no means, it will be the Hardest Life you will Live…if you Walk In Obedience. Picking Up Our Cross is not easy, it takes Work, Dedication and Loss to fit into the Shoes Of Salvation that Jesus has given to us to wear.
Too many Pastors, church Leaders, have Not spoken of Obedience To Jesus, but have filled your ears with Comfort and Peace of your flesh, for many believe they have No Cross To Bear! To Bear One’s Cross, you will be at War, both in The Spirit and in The Flesh and if you are not, then there is something wrong that you have been taught. I am at War every day against things in The Flesh and in The Spirit that I must bear. To Bear Your Cross, is not a One Time Deal, it is a Life Time Journey that we must all Walk. There is No Retirement in The Walk With Jesus until it is Your Time to go home and in that you await Judgment.
I hear and read about wanting a Revival, but the only Revival there needs to be, is for us to Walk In Obedience To Jesus, Bearing Our Cross Daily. In doing so, Revival will happen In and Through Jesus to His Obedient Bride!
2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV
“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.”
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
