I felt compelled to write this today, 21st November 2017:
It is good to remember and uphold the Jewish/Hebrew Israelite roots of the Christian faith but caution! The fact that you choose to call Jesus “Yeshua”, observe the Sabbath on the 6th Day (Saturday) celebrate the feasts in the light of your Christian faith (which I like to do – I also used to have a bi-monthly newsletter for a year using the name Yeshua and Yahweh in relation to Jesus and God respectively) does not mean that you a…re a better Christian or pleaser of God than those who do not. Key questions that God wants us to answer which are more important to God than our outwards acts of Christianity are
-What is our relationship with the Holy Spirit and our attitude toward’s the works of the Holy Spirit in the world and within the believer in Jesus?
-What is our heart condition before God?
-In all honesty do we do what we feel is true Christianity but our heart condition in relation to God and man grieves the Godhead (God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit)?
God is not as much focused on church movements and denominations as He is on individuals within them, after all it is people who make up a church or denomination. He is interested in, concerned about people and their individual relationships with Him and so false shepherds, teachers and prophets beware! Those who use a little bit of scripture with eloquent speech and showmanship to draw Jesus’ disciples to themselves, making themselves gods before men…beware!
When Jesus comes he will not ask: What church did you belong to! Saints is the level of your loyalty to people, churches and their leadership far greater than your loyalty to God and Christ? Such loyalty unto men to the point that whatever you are fed with you do not even check whether it aligns to scripture, and even if it does not you choose to take a mighty spoon full!! If so why is that? Who has bewitched you?
Beware and be aware all! Let’s wake up and shape up! The King of Kings is Coming Soon!
Child of God, your God given image is who you are and it is not negotiable – unalterable internally or externally in order to please or fit into the status quo – quite frankly say to those who want to redesign or re-define you “accept me as a unique masterpiece of the creator or let’s wave each other goodbye; “accept me as I am & respect me as I do you or dump me, your choice”!
This month of October until December begins the winding down of 2017 as it were the shutting of the door to 2017 and an entry into the door of 2018.
Be reminded that It is The Lord God who closes doors and sets an open door before you that no man can shut, so this entry in 2018 is His open door or new season through which if only you will seek & trust Him will lead you into His divine purposes.
These next three months are therefore a time to take stock of this year and be sensitive to what He is saying you must do in these final months which if heeded to will affect events positively in 2018, for while The Lord can do it without you, He chooses for you to partner with Him as a God of relationship. God is always calling us higher, to places of greater intimacy and depth in Him (Rev 4:1) and has told us to call on Him (Jer 33:3). Our being called by Him and being asked to call on Him is so that God, a God of communication and love will show us mysteries/things we do not know for He wants us to know the signs of the times and things that He plans to do.
God called Abraham His friend and so decided to tell Him in advance when He was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. It is just as well because Abraham could intercede for Lot. This shows the importance of those who are friends of God hearing from him for someone’s life including their own could be saved because He trusts them enough to share what is on His heart with them.
Christ Yeshua said to his disciples then and is saying to those who are now:
“Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” (John 15:15 KJV). Thus those who qualify to be friends of The Lord are the obedient ones as Abraham was and are rewarded with the gift of revelation or knowing his secrets/mysteries.
It is therefore not too early for you, a “friend” of The Lord to start thanking Him for what He has done and is about to do nor seek The Lord in prayer for revelation and His wisdom concerning 2018 in relation to your plans whether they are in alignment with His for you or what He wants to share with you I.e world, family or individual issues ahead as well as insight into the enemies strategies.
Those who delight in The Lord will have the desires of their heart. May He grant you all your desires according to His perfect will. Have a blessed week ahead
Ask God for “eye salve”(supernatural means to overcome spiritual blindness) so you can “see” (discern) the wolves in sheeps’ clothing or the beast’s prime agents in the high places…unless of course you can see, but prefer to pretend all is well, or you prefer to stay in the “land of oblivion”.
Choose to see things as they truly are and indeed as a disciple of Christ, you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
God will open your spiritual eyes, give you revelation; (wisdom, knowledge and understanding) so as to pray according to God’s will and be always alert and attentive to His warning.
May the LORD gift us with greater insight and the gift of discerning of spirits in this generation of escalating wickedness and evil.
