Are we in CHRIST?
Updated: Oct 1, 2022
After reading Mathew 25:14-30. Does The LORD'S rebuke, of the "wicked servant," cling continuously to your imagination? The "Wicked servant?" Yes, the one who buried his talent, and did nothing, with it, because he claimed to be afraid."
Afraid?"😨 Yes, and do you recall what The book of Revalation has to say, about the fearful and unbelieving?
Let me share it with you: But the cowardly, ["fearful"] unbelieving, Abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."
After reading GOD'S report; "Does that last part of the story, from Mathew 25:14-30 "stand out," as much to you, as it does, to me? I pray that it does, because The LORD has called us," to serve HIM, with all our heart." Yes, and to take our calling seriously," to GLORIFY "HIS NAME."
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," which represents CHRIST - The WORD of The LIVING GOD." Yes, we've been called to carry CHRIST, because we Believe in HIM, we've been approved by GOD to be entrusted with The GOSPEL to speak, not as pleasing men, but GOD Who tests our hearts.
Knowing that in Romans 10:15, The LORD has beautiful, and encouraging WORDS, to say about everyone, who obediently Preaches The GOSPEL of PEACE, being CHRIST HIMSELF.
For without, CHRIST, there is no Peace, for anyone!"
Do you believe, that HE might have equally strong WORDS, for everyone who chooses not to bring GLORY to HIS NAME?"
Let's consider this question, while reading this passage, in Malachi 2:1-2 "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, "to forsake, any, and all ways," that are not Ways, that bring GLORY to The LORD." 🤔
I am certain of this,, because in Isaiah 55:8," The LORD, says: "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 confident, that GOD is able, to make us prosper, in the thing for which HE is sending us?" Make us prosper, in the purpose, for which HE formed us in our mothers womb, and gave to each of us, LIFE?"
Doesn't JESUS, instruct us, to make for ourselves Treasure in HEAVEN?" Saying, that every Soul, is precious to GOD?" Isn't HE?" And doesn't HE make it abundantly clear, by saying, in Proverbs 11:30, that the fruit of the RIGHTEOUS is a Tree of LIFE; and he who wins Soul's is wise?" [Well, doesn't HE say that, about the wise?"
Wise?" Yes, for it is "wise" to serve The LORD, Who prepared The WAY for us, to never die!"
To enjoy LIFE, with HIM, forever!"
Thus, HE, is offering," the "RIGHTEOUS," Who Trust, in The TRUTH of HIS WORD."
Let me share the SCRIPTURE with you, and get your thoughts on it: In 1st Corrinthians 1:21 The WORD of The LIVING GOD, assures us, that, GOD, in HIS wisdom, has chosen through the foolishness of the message preached, to SAVE those who Believe. And that message, Beloved; "is the message of the death of The Cross, the burial, and RESURRECTION on the third day, of CHRIST, The LORD." Who paid for our sins on The Cross, and took our sins away!"
Consider how it reads: For since, in the WISDOM of GOD, the world through wisdom did not know GOD, it pleased GOD through the foolishness of the message preached to SAVE those who Believe.
[Believe?" Yes, Believe," GOD'S WORD and report, that reveals the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST JESUS," for the remission of sins.
For The SCRIPTURES clearly declare, that without the shedding of "Blood," there is no remission of sins.
For it's only one, "who Believes" The WORD, of The LIVING GOD, that will actually be about our FATHER'S business, and preach The GOSPEL of CHRIST,
One who Believes, after hearing The WORD of The LIVING GOD, say; "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will fiind; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks recieves, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Do you believe, that if we ask, "we will recieve, Beloved?"
Well then," with that same confidence, consider well, 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, everyone who repents, of wrongdoing, and embraces, 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 the needs of one who "LOVES" HIM. For The SCRIPTURES clearly depict such a one, by saying, in 1st Corrinthians 8:3 But if anyone LOVES GOD, this one is known by HIM.
Everything that happens, in the whole sphere of creation. GOD, is aware of!"
And yet," HE has kept silent regarding those who forget HIS "WORD," and the calling, that HE is calling them to."
"The calling unto Everlasting LIFE."
Consider Psalm 50:21-23: 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 - SALVATION."
For to say, The WORD, "YESHUA." Is to say, "SALVATION."
Yes, "SALVATION! - JESUS."
Thus, the book of Isaiah, says 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."
Because of "The BLOOD" of JESUS CHRIST, we are each Alive!"
Yes, it's all because of The BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, that took away our sins, that we live!" Yes, Hebrews 9:22 assures us, that without the shedding of Blood, there is no remission of sins.
And because of The BLOOD of JESUS, now we live!" Yes, live for The GLORY of GOD, and called to take our calling seriously, and walk worthy of our calling.
For in Deuteronomy 30:15-20 we are each thoroughly admonished, to walk worthy of The LORD."
"Yes, Beloved Brethren, walk humbly, and pleasing, to GOD!"
