Knowing that we've each been called to be patient," kind," and LOVING" toward one another."
"Do you believe that we each need to pray for a heart that is willing to embrace the LOVE of a Brother?" Yes, the LOVE of a Brother, as 1st Peter 3:8 instructs us, saying: Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another, LOVE as Brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.
Knowing that GOD, is LOVE."
who is it, then, that is, hate?"
Or at least, promotes hate?
Who would have us hate one another?" Who is it, Beloved," that wanted Cain to hate his brother?" Yes, and promoted the idea, that he kill his brother?
Wasn't it the devil?
A great number of people who know that it is, prefer to embrace anger, hate, and resentment, and doing the will of the powers of darkness.
They know that they are among those who are sent to do good, but find themselves wishing they could?"
Yes, for James 4:17 says to each of us": Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.
Is that clear enough to understand? Yes? Are we wise enough to know, and understand?" I pray that anyone who lacks wisdom, would consider this WORD from Proverbs 4:7.
Consider it: Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
And then, consider this WORD from James 1:5-7 that reads: If anyone of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of GOD, Who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in FAITH, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
For let not that man suppose that he will recieve anything from The LORD.
So are we wise enough, Beloved, to do as our LORD is sending us to?
For Proverbs 10:23 assures us, that: To do evil is like sport to a fool,
But a man of understanding has wisdom.
Are we wise enough to know, that every Soul is precious to GOD? And are we wise enough to know that he who wins Soul's is wise?"
Are we, Beloved?"
And are we wise enough to know that The WORD of The LIVING GOD has sent us to speak, and to proclaim The GOSPEL to this lost and dying world? 🤔
Yes, for 1st Corrinthians 13:13
assures us, saying: And now abide FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE.
"So are we wise enough to know that GOD has called us to LOVE one another, and to embrace our calling, to care about our Brother? Yes?"
To embrace our calling to LOVE others," and not to be found among those who say, “I don’t get mad; I just get even!”
Right!" Not to be counted among them." For 1st Corrinthians 15:33 assures us that bad company corrupts good character.
We are not to do evil to others, even if they've done evil to us. Why? Well, because our LORD instructs us, saying in Romans 12:17-21:
Repay no evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.
If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, "Vengeance is MINE, I will repay," Says The LORD.
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head." Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Is that instruction, something we follow?" I pray that we do," because our LORD emphatically assures each of us, that "Vengeance, is HIS."
Yes, and that any repayment for evil, will be given by HIM."
And I pray that not one of us, would be so "unwise," that we would try to take what belongs to GOD!"
"Vengeance" belongs to GOD, Beloved Brethren!"
And GOD'S Vengeance is near!" But how can we know?"
Well, because the signs of the times are evident, and they assure each of us, that our LORD is soon to call us up into the clouds!"
Consider how 1st Thessalonians 5:1-3 reveals it, saying: But concerning the times and seasons, Brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the Day of The LORD so comes as a thief in the night.
For when they say, "Peace and Safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
With that said, Beloved,
"have you read the book of Revelation?" Yes, that "eye-opening" book that speaks of Judgments, Thrones, and Dominions."
After reading that book, I saw how many might easily assume, that GOD will get “even” with us sinners, for our phenomenal offenses throughout the history of mankind. And I can see it clearly, with the book of Proverbs revealing these six, and even seven characteristics, that GOD simply hates." Consider how Proverbs 6:16-19 reveals them: These six things The LORD hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to HIM: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, [Now doesn't that clearly describe, the "abortion" industry?] A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among Brethren.
The TRUTH is, "GOD’S final JUDGMENT is a "necessary expression" of HIS CHARACTER."
A "CHARACTER of JUSTICE, MERCY, and TRUTH!"
A "CHARACTER that is most RIGHTEOUS," though one might think it uncouth!"
And we are in The TRUTH, and of The TRUTH, because we Trust that GOD’S WORD, is TRUTH!"
And so we daily seek HIM, Who affirms, saying in John 10:27-28
MY sheep hear MY VOICE, and I know them, and they follow ME. And I give them Eternal LIFE, and they shall never perish, neither shall anyone snatch them out of MY HAND.
No one is able to snatch us out of The HAND of GOD!"
And Exodus 34:6-7 makes it abundantly clear, by saying:
The LORD, The LORD GOD MERCIFUL and GRACIOUS, LONGSUFFERING, and abounding in GOODNESS and TRUTH, keeping MERCY for thousands, [Thousands? aren't there billions of people on the earth today?
Billions, who have yet to embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD?] forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the childrens children to the third and fourth generation.
The LORD assures each of us,
that HE will have HIS Day of reckoning with everyone who has transgressed HIS Law and Commandments."
Because GOD is JUST,
HE will not turn a blind eye to sin." And to HIS THRONE of JUDGMENT, every last member of the unbelieving world, will be brought in."
For The WORD of The LIVING GOD assures us, that HE will have HIS Day of reckoning."
And that we all need a REDEEMER!" We all need A SAVIOR!'
For GOD has appointed a day on which HE will judge the world in RIGHTEOUSNESS.
In fact, if HE doesn’t carry out "JUSTICE" as described in the book of Revelation, it would be a denial of HIS "CHARACTER."
A "CHARACTER" of "HOLINESS," "RIGHTEOUSNESS", JUSTICE, and TRUTH."
That’s why in the midst of HIS JUDGMENTS, we saints will sing HIS "praise in TRUTH!"
Yes, we will sing of HIS MERCY, and GRACE, rejoicing that on The Cross, HE took our place!"
And having overcome The Cross, and simply, all things!" Our LORD speaks to us, these WORDS from Luke 14:27-33, saying:
"And whoever does not bear his cross and come after ME cannot be MY disciple.
For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it- lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, 'This man began to build, and was not able to finish'?
Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether with ten thousand he is able to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of PEACE. So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be MY disciple.
Knowing that we are our LORD'S disciples, and that we will soon be singing in the courts of HEAVEN."
Let me share "Revalation" 15:2-9 with you, and get your thoughts on what we will see, and what we will hear."
It reads like this: And I saw something like a sea of glass, having harps of GOD.
They sing the song of Moses, the servant of GOD, and the song of the LAMB, saying: Great and Marvelous are YOUR works,
LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!
JUST and TRUE are YOUR ways,
O KING of the Saints.
“Who shall not fear YOU, O LORD, and GLORIFY YOUR NAME?
For YOU ALONE are HOLY".
For all nations shall come and worship before YOU.
For YOUR judgments have been manifested.” After these things I looked, and behold, the Temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in HEAVEN was opened. And out of the Temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands. Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of GOD Who lives FOREVER and EVER.
The Temple was filled with smoke from The GLORY Of GOD and from HIS POWER, and no one was able to enter the Temple till the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed.
Knowing that GOD will have HIS Day of reckoning,
Can we each agree, that those who know GOD best, are those who know that GOD has not dealt with us according to our sins?"
Yes, that HE has been MERCIFUL towards us?
Knowing that lying lips are an abomination to GOD.
If we've suffered even a little because of it. Is the harvest we've reaped, totally something odd?
I hope that we all know, that GOD has been MERCIFUL towards us, Beloved? Yes!"
That we all know, and are absolutely convinced, that it's because we embrace The TRUTH that GOD’S WORD revealed to us.
That in HIS GREAT LOVE for us, HE has revealed The GOSPEL, by which we are SAVED, unless we Believed in vain.
Consider how The WORD of The LIVING GOD reveals The GOSPEL. 🤔
1st Corrinthians 15:1-4 reveals it like this: Moreover, Brethren, I declare to you The GOSPEL which I preached to you, which also you recieved and in which you stand, by which also you are SAVED, if you hold fast that WORD which I preached to you- unless you Believed in vain.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also recieved, that CHRIST died for our sins, according to the SCRIPTURES, and that HE was buried and rose again the third day according to the SCRIPTURES.
Our LORD was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that HE was seen by over five hundred Brethren at once. And The WORD of The LIVING GOD assures us, that we are SAVED. "Unless you Believed in vain."
That our sins were thoroughly judged on The Cross of CHRIST. And that they've been "taken away!" And taken away, as far as the east is from the west!" And though we don't see it now, we can anticipate entering GOD'S REST."
Yes, GOD'S REST which is revealed in Hebrews 3:14-19
Consider how it reads: For we have become partakers of CHRIST if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, while it is said: "Today, if you will hear HIS VOICE,
Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."
For who, having heard, rebelled?
Indeed, was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness? And to whom did HE swear that they would not enter HIS REST, but to those who did not obey?
So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief!"
[So how many failed to Believe?"
The WORD of The LIVING GOD, JESUS CHRIST, is our SALVATION!"
And because we Believe that HE is our LIFE, and our SALVATION.
HE reveals HIS affection to us, saying in John 15:13-15: GREATER LOVE has no one than this, than to lay down one's LIFE for HIS friends.
You are MY friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his MASTER is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from MY FATHER I have made known to you.
Because GOD has determined, that The WEDDING SUPPER of HIS Son, be "full to capacity."
We are each sent into the highways and hedges, to compel people to come in to The WEDDING.
Consider how Luke 14:21-24 reveals this, by opening our eye's to the reality of how many excuses were given, by invitees," that really didn't want attend The WEDDING SUPPER of The Master's Son.🤔
Consider how it reads: So the servant came and reported these things to his MASTER.
Then The MASTER of the house, being angry, said to HIS servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.'
And the servant said, 'MASTER, it is done as YOU commanded, and still there is room.' Then The MASTER said to the servant, 'Go out into the highway and hedges, and compel them to come in, that MY House may be filled. For I say to you, that none of those men who were invited shall taste MY Supper.' "
How many of us wish to attend The WEDDING SUPPER of The LAMB?"
I ask this, because we'veve each been given the freedom to choose!" And to know that we are as "Ten virgins," who await The Coming of The BRIDEGROOM.
But among which five," do we each wish to be counted?"
We are each sent to redeem the time, and to preach The GOSPEL all the time!" In season, and out of season, I Believe our instruction, is."
So knowing that we've each been bought at a price. And that the "Bride price," is The "BLOOD of CHRIST."
I pray that our time be spent on GLORIFYING JESUS, Who gives each of us this instruction, from Romans 10:14-15, saying: How then shall they call on HIM in Whom they have not Believed? And how shall they believe in HIM of Whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach The GOSPEL Of PEACE, who bring Good News of Good things!"
I know that many people like to sit on the judgement seat, and pass judgment," even on GOD.
But I pray to never be found among those who judge GOD for HIS judgments."
After reading the book of Revelation, we should each be greatly "surprised!"😮
But our surprise should not be becauseof the massive scale of GOD’S "judgments."
No!" But we should be greatly surprised that HE is waiting so long to "execute them!"
Truly, GOD is LONGSUFFERING and MERCIFUL, just as 2nd Peter 3:9 assures us."
Truly, GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
And so, even now, GOD is restraining HIS JUDGMENT from being unleashed on a world who hates GOD.
But to us who LOVE HIM.
Romans 8:29 Assures us, saying: And we know that all things work together for GOOD to those who LOVE GOD, to those who are the called according to HIS purpose.
Our LORD LOVES us, and wants us to know that HE LOVED us, before we LOVED HIM. And that now that we know we LOVE HIM, HE has sent us to tell this lost and dying world, that now is the Day of SALVATION.
For 2nd Corrinthians 6:2 assures us of this, by saying:
"In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the Day of SALVATION I have helped you."
Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the Day of SALVATION.
The LORD has made it abundantly clear that now is the time that The LORD is calling the world 🌎 to repentance."
Yes, now is the time that GOD is calling the world to embrace HIS "LOVE", MERCY," and "GRACE."
Yes, to embrace HIM by Trusting in the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, Who on The Cross, took our place!"
Suffering on The Cross, HE took our place." The Son of The LIVING GOD,
"LOVINGLY took our place!"
And now is the time to worship HIM, by telling others how on The Cross, HE, took our place!"
Now is the time to bow down!"
Now is the time to say, LORD JESUS, YOU'RE my GOD!"
HE didn't deserve to die that way!" But proving how much HE LOVES us," will you join me, saints," in praising the "GREAT LOVE" Who spoke and said: "Greater LOVE" has no one than this, than to lay down one's LIFE for HIS friends?" Imagine that?" "We who were once enemies." are today," friends of GOD!"
How "Amazing," to know
that GOD LOVES us like that!"
That HE calls us friends."
