The LORD wanting for each of us to be set free of the lies and deception of the devil has this to say to each of us.
John 8:32 reveals it like this, “And you will know The TRUTH, and The TRUTH will set you free."
If asked, Would you say that you know The TRUTH? 🤔 That you know The LORD JESUS CHRIST?
Well, since we do, do you recall reading this SCRIPTURE from Mathew 11:27?
It reads like this, “All things have been delivered to ME by MY FATHER, and no one know The Son except The FATHER. Nor does anyone know The FATHER except The Son, and the one to whom The Son wills to reveal HIM.”
With that said, when was it that HE revealed HIMSELF to you? Was it when HE made this declaration from John 14:7-10?
Consider how it reads, "If you had known ME, you would have known MY FATHER also and from now on, you know HIM and have seen HIM. Philip said to HIM, "LORD, show us The Father and it is sufficient for us." Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long and yet you have not known ME, Philip? He who has seen ME, has seen The FATHER; so how can you say, show us The Father? Do you not Believe that I AM in The Father, and The FATHER in ME? The WORDS that I speak to you I do not speak on my own authority, but The FATHER Who dwells in me does the works.”
Do you remember if that was when HE revealed HIMSELF to you?
Well, consider 2 Corrinthians 5:18-19 and how it makes this firm declaration, “Now all things are of GOD who has reconciled us to HIMSELF through JESUS CHRIST, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that GOD was in CHRIST reconciling the world to HIMSELF, not imputng their trespasses against them and has committed to us The WORD of reconciliation.”
Brethren, Knowing that GOD has committed to us this ministry, and The WORD of reconciliation, do we now know that JESUS CHRIST can only be our LORD by our willingness to obey HIM?
Yes? Well, knowing that we are each walking with The GOD of all creation to an ultimate destination have you ever felt the need to ask The Lord, Are we there yet? I ask this because whenever I read the five books of Moses, I wonder how many times he heard that same question from the Israelites. Before rescuing them from slavery and leading them out of Egypt, Exodus 3:8 tells us that Moses told the people that The Lord would lead them to a land flowing with milk and honey. And HE most certainly did, but not before they first spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness. However, this was no ordinary wandering. You see, they were not lost, but they were wandering because of a purpose that in time The Lord would reveal to each one of them.
After 400 years of slavery, the children of Israel needed to have their hearts, souls, and minds readjusted toward GOD. Deuteronomy 8:15-18 tells us that this was accomplished in the wilderness but not before an entire generation died because of their disobedience that was simply a product of their unbelief.
Consider how Hebrews 3:17-19 reveals this truth saying, “Now with whom was HE angry forty years? 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, those who did not obey? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
Brethren, In life it sometimes seems as if we are wandering in circles.
We feel lost.
We might even want to ask The LORD, Are we there yet?
How much longer?
At times like this, it helps to remember that our obedience through the journey, not just the destination itself, is important to GOD.
HE uses it to humble us and test us in order to show us what is in our hearts.
You see, GOD wants us to know that if JESUS CHRIST is in our heart from obedience to HIM we will never depart
Can we each see that, Beloved Brethren?
GOD wants US to know that WE LOVE HIM. For each of us will know that if we LOVE HIM, we will delight in keeping HIS commandments.
Yes, we will delight ourselves in our obedience to
