Greetings to you reader, and may the grace of God be upon you. I haven’t taken time to post lately, mostly because I had been neglecting my bible reading, but prayerfully I will not enter that space again. Today the subject of the post is rather diverse but the essence of it begs you to ask yourself one question; Am I doing as my creator commanded? Now don’t get me wrong here, we all sin and fall short of His glory. What I hope is that you will take a second look at everything you are and everything you know, so you can get a clear picture our reality, and not the veil that Satan has pulled over the world to hide God. Yesterday I was saying to my wife after having had a thought while meditating on the bible reading, “Heaven isn’t easy, nothing worth eternity is or could be.” We know that God is the same yesterday, today and forever, but our generation seems determined to believe that God has changed His ways, or maybe we just choose to because it makes things easier in this world. I beg to differ and so does the bible.
I want to put this scenario to you; We know from the book of revelations that there is a coming judgement on the Earth and it’s inhabitants, so please consider this pattern of God’s consistency.
In the days of Noah, (which by the way our Lord Yahshua(Jesus) Ha-Mashiach compares to the days of His second coming Matt 24:37) There came a judgement for everyone Gen 6:7 and how many people were spared? Eight souls, Noah and his family, everybody else died!
In the days of Lot, (which again is likened to the days before the Lord’s second coming). Judgement came on the sinful people of Sodom and Gomorrah and how many people were spared? Only four souls, Lot, his wife and daughters. Everybody else in the cities died including Lot’s sons in law, who turned out to be scoffers when Lot warned them about the coming judgement.
In Moses’ time during the exodus of Israel, God passed judgement on his generation. The nation of Israel was in the wilderness for 40 years, and God caused this because they had transgressed His law and worshiped other gods (Deut 1:34-39). Out of Moses’ generation only two souls made it to the promised land that was Caleb and Joshua, the rest including Moses didn’t, they all died in the wilderness, only their children made it. It is also important to note while in Deuteronomy that God tests His people, to see if they will keep His commandments or not (Deut 8:2).
So I think you are getting the picture that I am painting here, we don’t have the statistics for the death toll that will come with the fulfillment of God’s judgements in revelation, but it’s a lot of souls that will die. This time it is very different, this is the end of days we are talking about here. We have an escape through the blood of our Lord Jesus, but that is a gift that requires us to live up to what we confess to be “God fearing”.
There is an adversary out there and we know that he seeks to destroy, and believe me he has plenty of ammunition at his disposal. We have played into his hand and bought into his deception and distraction tactics, he has had since before Adam and Eve, a lot of time to plot and plan. Satan has a plan to make you sin and know this that sin is transgression of God’s commandments, take a look at the times that we are living in, we are busy transgressing without giving it a second thought. We worship money instead of God (Matt 6:24), the family structure breakdown and divorce have wrecked havoc on parental respect and responsibilities, covetousness is all over our tv screens, idolatry and murder, we are definitely lawless. The reason for this stronghold of Satan is deception, I was watching a sermon video last night and the message was this; “If you have faith in God and believe that His Son died for our sins and rose on the third day, confess your sins and then you are saved” Wow! It’s that easy? NO NO NO, Satan also believes these things but he is not getting saved ever but he wants you to believe that you will. There are a lot of people out there preaching the under grace sermons, you can carry on sinning as long as you believe, that is a lot of hogwash, they are not preaching repentance, denying ourselves, taking up our cross (the instrument of the death of our flesh) and following Jesus. I just don’t hear it, to repent means to turn away from…
So if you repent of sin, which is the transgression of God’s law, it means you start to keep the law of our God, he that has ears let him hear the bible says. Today’s church has twisted the writings of Paul and this has proved to be the stumbling block that God has allowed (subject for future blog). 2Peter 3:15-18 tell us that the writings of Paul are hard to understand and untaught and unstable people will twist them to their own destruction. That sounds like a lot of the worship of today, the ravenous wolves of Acts 20:29 have long being inside among us believers, YES in the church. So we ought to be very careful who we listen to, pray and always go back to the word of God, he is not the author of confusion remember that.
What is gravely important in our time is the keeping of God’s commandments, remembering what Jesus taught and observed Matt 28:20 reads “teaching them to observe all the things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”, Amen. And this is coming from He that has been given all authority in heaven and on earth (Matt 28:18). Today I believe that we have twisted scripture and made void what that verse teaches. So my question is who are you going to listen to? Because we know that if you are a friend to the world, you are in enmity with God. We are blessed because it’s not all doom and gloom, we need to learn to pray in the spirit and truly keep seeking God, He is faithful and His promises are eternal. Remember narrow is the road and few find it, and finding that road starts with seeking for God and when He draws near to you, the path will be there for you to walk. Staying on that path is important, because many are called to it but a few are chosen (Matt 7:14, 22:14). God put the nation of Israel on a test to see if they would remain faithful and chose Him every day, they failed and wandered the desert for 40 years and died before seeing the promised land. Adam and Eve had a test to see if they would obey what God commanded concerning the two trees in the Garden of Eden , they failed and introduced sin and death into this world and gave Satan dominion on Earth.
We each have our own tests, and each day I pray we always choose God and not Satan, resist the devil and he will flee from you. That is one profound statement, we have a gift from God that Satan will run away from; His Holy Spirit is given out to us and with it the power to trample over the disgusting things of Satan. We must not remain prisoners of this world, and not look to what is seen, giving the devil power over you that he doesn’t have. I think I have written enough for today, so I will sign off here, but please feel free to comment and or correct me if I have written something erroneously. Love and Blessing of The Most High God Almighty and that of His Son our Lord and Savior Yahshua Ha Mashiach( Jesus Christ).
