Are we carrying CHRIST?
After reading Mathew 25:14-30. Does The LORD'S rebuking of the "wicked servant," cling continuously to your imagination? The "Wicked servant?" Yes, the one who buried his talent, and did absolutely nothing with it, because he claimed to be afraid."
Does that part of the story, Beloved, "stand out" as much to you, as it does to me? I pray that it would, because from what I've gathered, The LORD has called us to serve HIM with all our heart." Yes, and to take our calling to GLORIFY "HIS NAME," extremely to heart.
How can we know? Well, simply by taking heed according to GOD'S WORD, and to know that HE is speaking directly to every Believer." For we, Believer's, are each members of The BODY of CHRIST.
We are, our LORD'S modern day "Priests," who have been called to carry "The Ark." Yes, to carry CHRIST, and share what we carry inside." Right!" And not to follow after the example of the "wicked servant," and keep it buried inside.
Consider how it reads: "And now O priest's, this commandment is for you. If you will not hear,
And if you will not take it to heart,
To give GLORY to MY NAME,"
Says The LORD of hosts,
"I will send a curse upon you,
And I will curse your Blessings.
Yes, I have cursed them already, Because you do not take it to heart.
To everyone who refuses to take their calling to heart.
The LORD, our GOD, is calling them to forsake the evil way.
Yes, and to forsake any and all ways," that are not The Ways of The LORD. 🤔
For in Isaiah 55:8, The LORD makes it abundantly clear, by saying: "For MY Thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," says The LORD.
For as the Heavens are higher than the earth,
So are MY Ways higher than your ways,
And MY Thoughts than your thoughts.
For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven,
And do not return there,
But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud,
That it may give seed to the sower
And bread to the eater, So shall My WORD be that goes forth from MY MOUTH; It shall not return to ME void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Knowing that The LORD, our GOD, is sending each of us to share The GOOD NEWS of The RISEN CHRIST, The GOSPEL." Are we also abundantly confident, that GOD is able to make us prosper in the thing for which HE is sending us?" Isn't HE sending us to make for ourselves Treasure in HEAVEN," saying that every Soul is precious to GOD?" And doesn't HE make it abundantly clear, by saying in the book of Proverbs, that he who wins Soul's is wise?"
Wise?" Yes, for it's wise to serve The LORD Who never dies." And HE is offering the RIGHTEOUS Who Trust in HIM, Everlasting LIFE!"
Let me share the SCRIPTURE with you, and get your thoughts on it. Proverbs 11:30 reads like this: The fruit of the RIGHTEOUS is a Tree of LIFE, And he who wins Soul's is wise.
Philippians 1:21 assures us, that The WISE GOD, in HIS wisdom, has chosen through the foolishness of preaching, to SAVE those who Believe.
Believe?" Yes, Believe GOD'S WORD and report, that reveals the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, for the remission of sins.
For it's only those who Believe, will actually be about our FATHER'S business, and preach The GOSPEL of CHRIST, HIS Son.
Do you believe that GOD possesses the POWER, to help us get the job done? Do you Believe, Beloved Brethren? And if so, are we confident that if we ask, "we will recieve?"
Well then, please stay confident, and consider this WORD from Isaiah 55:7." Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to The LORD, And HE will have MERCY on him; And to our GOD,
For HE will abundantly pardon.
[The LORD is MERCIFUL, and HE will abundantly pardon, one who repents of wrongdoing, and embraceds through FAITH, the finished work of The Cross Of CHRIST."
For GOD is MERCIFUL, and HIS WORD reassures us, by saying:
“For MY Thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways MY Ways,” says The LORD.
[The LORD'S WAY, Beloved, is being aware of everything that goes on. Everything that happens, and not just on this planet. No!" But in the whole sphere of creation.
And yet," HE has kept silent regarding those who forget HIS WORD, and the calling that HE is calling everyone to respond to."
"The calling to Everlasting LIFE."
Consider how Psalm 50:21-23 reveals it: These things you have done, and I have kept silent; you thought that I was altogether like you;
But I will rebuke you,
And set them in order before your eyes.
Now consider this, you who forget GOD,
Lest I tear you in pieces,
And there be none to deliver:
Whoever offers praise GLORIFIES ME; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show The SALVATION of GOD.
[In other words, Brethren, to him who does the will of GOD,
GOD, will show HIS "YESHUA."
For to say The WORD, "YESHUA." Is to say, "SALVATION."
Yes, "SALVATION!" For in the Hebrew language, "YESHUA," means "SALVATION." And we all need "YESHUA, Beloved!" Yes, for YESHUA, translated to English."
Yes, "JESUS, Beloved Brethren, is our LORD, our GOD, and our SALVATION. "YESHUA!"
So the book of Isaiah reassures each of us, by saying these WORDS: “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are MY Ways higher than your ways, And MY Thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall MY WORD be that goes forth from MY MOUTH; It shall not return to ME void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. “For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with PEACE; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands."
[And we will be there to see it!" 👀]
But why will we be there?" Well, because it's all because of JESUS we're alive." All because The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST!" We're Alive!"
Yes, it's all because of The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, that took away our sins!" For Hebrews 9:22 assures us, that without the shedding of Blood, there is no remission of sins.
And because, of The BLOOD of JESUS, we are alive. We are to take our calling seriously, and walk in the ways of GOD.
For in Deuteronomy 30:15-20 we are each thoroughly admonished, to walk in the ways of The LORD."
Consider how it reads: "See, I have set before you today LIFE and GOOD, death and evil, in that I command you today to LOVE The LORD your GOD, to walk in HIS ways, and to keep HIS commandments, HIS statutes, and HIS judgments, that you may live and multiply; and The LORD your GOD will Bless you in the land which you go to possess. But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess. I call HEAVEN and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you LIFE and death, Blessing and cursing; therefore choose LIFE, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may LOVE The LORD your GOD, that you may obey HIS VOICE, and that you may cling to HIM, for HE is your LIFE and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which The LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.
"To give to us, Beloved Brethren."
