God's Sword of Truth - The Word
IS ANYONE LISTENING, CAN NO ONE HEAR HIS WORD, FOLLOW HIS SPIRIT, DO HIS WILL AND BE SAVED?
The mind and flesh always want to control. Satan also knows this and he has an ally, - - our flesh. It has been said that we are our own worst enemy.
The truth is simple, plain and honest, it is right with the heart and is for all who will hear. The only hope in a lost world is the hope and promise of Christ for all who hear, believe and follow Him - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16.There is no hope in man or in his science. The world is doomed, lost, and it shall be destroyed, in God's time and way. The wrath of God is coming. It is written, "The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptation, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished."2nd Peter 2:9. This is called the great day of the Lord, the last judgment, of which we shall all give an account.
While there is still time, I will renounce the world, its' religions and their sin. I will bring the hidden things of darkness, (lies, dishonesty and deceitfulness) into the light by using only the Word of God as I've been taught by the Holy Spirit. If this gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. If they are blinded, it is because they believe not. For them there is no hope, they will be judged and punished forever and ever. Are you one of these? To overcome and survive this world, its' evilness and Satan, read on. You cannot make it on your own. You cannot make it with man's religion. The light must come from the Holy Spirit, and His glorious gospel of Jesus Christ, Who is the image of God, and Whose light shines in me.
For I teach and preach, not of myself, but of Christ Jesus, my Lord Whom I love. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined on me and my heart, and I have a burden to share it with all who will hear and receive it in their heart. Here is wisdom and knowledge, fear of the Lord will bring you into the light. My treasure is not of this world, my power is not of myself but of the Lord and His Word, and He will give it to all who ask.
You can have what I have. It is a spiritual gift of power and with it you can over-come the world. When I'm "...troubled on every-side, yet not distressed; ...perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh". - 2 Cor.8:11. Keep this in mind, "...death worketh in us, but life [in the spirit] inyou..." goes on forever.
We all have a measure of faith, given by God - "...according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. - Rom.12:3. We all have the Holy Spirit, sent by Jesus when He left - "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; - John 14:16. We all have the written Word as a record. It is still here and there is only one written Word (KJV 1611) in English. Believe as I do, speak out as I do, rebuke and warn as I do, be Salt as I am. For this cause I faint not, I fear not, no man can touch me, I fear them not. My flesh, in which there is no good thing, shall perish, but the inward man, the spirit, is renewed each day and will live forever. When the Lord shall call, I am ready to give an account. Each day that I have I must diminish in the flesh and increase in the spirit in Christ. This is the hard part, this is where the battle is - - our flesh, nature of the world, life as it is now, it's the here and now that's against us, and we are in Satan's world and he is the prince of it and rules it well. There is a price to pay, you must die to flesh in order to live in the spirit. It is written, every seed must die to bring forth life. You ( in the old flesh) must die to be BORN AGAIN, IN CHRIST.
Do you look at the things which are seen or the things which are not seen by the eye? That which is seen is temporal (of the world), but the things which are not seen are eternal. Our spirit must be in Christ, and His in us, we are the Lords house, our heart must be his home with-in us, and it is not built with man's hands. If anyone says to you "there is a building and it's the house of God" don't believe it as it is nothing more than a religious house, with many having an obelisk on top, which they call a bell tower, and yet most do not know what that really represents.
We are not naked, but clothed in righteousness through Christ, these are garments of heaven. Therefore, we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord; "For we walk by faith, not sight, we are confident, I say, and willing, rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord." II COR.7-8. When we are absent from body then we are with the Lord, do you understand this? If you want to stay on this earth with its creation - the flesh, then you are not of the Lord, and you are not ready to go and be with Him for you are lost forever. You are judged already.
If you are Christ's, you are a new creation, old things have passed away, all things become new - not of yourself, but of the Lord. Through His ministry of reconciliation, He hath made him to be sin for us who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. We are saved by grace, (God's gift to us out of His love). No creation or human (Mary) had a hand in it, or a part of it.
It is written, "And what concord hath Christ with Belial? (Religion) or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?, "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? (Catholic statues, relics, pictures, crosses with a body on it, etc., etc.) for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them and walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people." II COR.5:15-16. Can't you see it? Christ must live in you and you must live Christ everyday, not after the flesh, but after the spirit. He will teach you all things, even if He has to use me, a nobody, saved by His grace. If you know Him then you will know me.
We are told, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" IICOR.6:17, also "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" II COR.6:14, or the lost souls of this earth? If they are not of the Lord, they are of the devil. Warn them and rebuke them, I write this not to please men but to warn them all. What gospel do you preach? Do you warn, exhort, rebuke sin, are you salt or sugar? Are you truly led by the Spirit? You will know when the world hates you without a cause. Do not go along with the crowd, do not compromise the Word for religious sake or the flesh, do not try and survive among them. Which life are you living for? Is it the flesh?...and if so, you will lose in the end and are already dead.
Do not listen to false brethren who work the law of the flesh, do the things of the world, keep the law, tithe, go to church, resist evil, march, etc., and try to make the world a better place to live. They want to keep the world alive, they want to make it good by their own righteousness, they want heaven on earth with or without Christ. They have hope in men, they think man can save the earth. They want to save everything but themselves. They do the devil's work and think it is for the Lord, and even believe it is for the Lord and that His hand is in it, when in fact, it is not. If you love anything of the world it is written that you are an enemy of God. "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." - I Jn.2:15. Do you know why? Peace on earth will never come until Christ returns,and they do not know the Word of God on it. They do not believe in the Word of God and its warnings. Who has bewitched them? Guess Who! They do not want to know the truth, it may hurt too much. Well, it's true! It will hurt, but not as much as the wrath of God when He comes. Which do you want, man's or God's wrath? Don't live in a fantasy, a daydream, where imaginations run wild. There are those who live in customs, traditions, history, the past, always looking for answers of life, creation, future, worldly hope, outer-space and other life of different beings and without the knowledge of truth and God's Word. They live for their own wisdom and knowledge. In all their ways they have nothing, and if they were honest, they have found only how little they do know.
Everything one needs to know or should want to know is written in the Word of God. The Holy Spirit can show it to you if you ask. You won't find it in man's religions which will only confuse you more. It must be spiritually discerned. Only His Word can set you free - give you peace, salvation, by the Spirit of Christ. You must be BORN-AGAIN, not of the flesh, and water, but of the Spirit and Christ's water.
When faith comes, in Christ, you are then under a new creation, a new schoolmaster - the Holy Spirit, who was left to guide us to Christ. If you are in Him so then walk in Him, live in Him, love Him. Look for His coming, His return, keep your lamp lit, have much oil on hand to over-come. Don't let Him find you sleeping, be alert, be awake in the Spirit always! Where are the Martyrs of Christ? Have they all gone? I say NO! There will be more! I'm not a writer, nor author, nor good in English, but I do know the WORD OF GOD. So I do the best I can, the Holy Spirit will do the rest. I can plant, He does the sowing, the watering. There will be a harvest by the Angels. SO BE IT!
