Personal Relationship Is Key-Meditation for Today

relationship

It is time my Beloved to draw nearer unto Me. I am drawing you unto Myself, will you respond in Faith and quiet trust?

No longer will you focus on all the false voices of this world. It is time to develop such a keen awareness of MY Voice, that the recognition of instruction will be automatic for you. I long to spend time with you and show you things that you know not. Come unto Me…Abide in Me…Remain in Me.

1 John 2:27 But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.

Tidbit of Truth

Dont talk

If you can find someone that is submitted to God, then you will find a person that knows what LOVE really is, because God IS love. Love is totally selfless and it is expressed through action.

Tidbit of Truth

You cannot overcome what you tolerate!

Jesus said it best in Revelation chapter 2! The church in Thyatira was tolerating a Jezebel spirit and Jesus warned them that if they didn’t deal with Jezebel … They would share in her destruction.

Galatians 5:1

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

Rebuke and Condemn Evil!

open rebuke is better than secret love

There is a strong difference between judging and rebuking.  The distinction is that rebuking seeks to CORRECT the offender rather than condemning them. Unfortunately, many offenders take issue at being corrected and prefer to turn it around and accuse the rebuker (or victim) of wrongdoing rather than admit they were wrong and change their own behavior.  Although the Bible does tell us not to judge one another, it also instructs us very clearly to rebuke those who do evil, as well as those who hurt us.

Another way of looking at rebuking vs. judging is that rebuking involves facts, while judging involves assumptions. Here is an example:  when you disapprove of/protest/confront an abuser for behaving in ways that hurt other people (fact), and he responds by accusing you of not being a good Christian (assumption) (because you are confronting him, not honoring him, or for whatever reason), then you are rebuking him, but he is judging you.

Jesus and the Apostles were very bold and rebuked and condemned evil. They even openly rebuked people in the church for doing evil, in order to strengthen the church… a few examples…

1 Timothy 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him. 2 Timothy 4:2 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. Titus 1:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Titus 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”
If we don’t warn someone in error to turn from evil, we are partly responsible. “Ezekiel 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.”
Jesus was VERY bold openly!…
“Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.; O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?; Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?; Thou hypocrite, ye have made it a den of thieves; Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.; Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified.”

It is a grave injustice to see a brother or sister entangled in sin and not address it in Love. Being politically correct or neutral when it comes to sin is not what God has called us to do.We must not be afraid of people or the backlash that comes from speaking the truth, when GOD is the one we must answer to.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father I thank you for helping us to understand that rebuking and condemning evil is a Kingdom command to strengthen your Bride. Help us to come into Unity of the faith Lord and stand firm against the onslaught of the enemy. Thank you for giving us the strength to humble ourselves to receive correction and instruction when it is necessary in our own lives. In Jesus name…Amen

Out of the Wilderness A Word from the Lord

Wilderness

I will indeed lead you out of the wilderness. The wilderness experience of these past years have been hard for you. Many of My people have been wounded and lost hope, and some have even lost faith. But, I say that in this season you shall regain all. You shall recover all that you have lost, and you shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. This I declare that I will bring blessings to you to demonstrate not only My goodness, but it shall be a sign that what I have spoken to you is true and shall come to pass. Encourage yourself. Encourage yourself! Forget those things that are behind you. Get ready for the great crossing-over, for you about to cross over into a new level of anointing, power and glory. There will be a greater demonstration of My kingdom, says the Lord. All that is required of you is to rise up and say, “I’m going! I’m going with the Lord. I’m going to cross over into the goodness of the Lord.”

Echoing The Kingdom

echo-wave

I’m tired of satan trying to control the body of Christ with scripture that is taken out of context…
Many Pastors and leaders try and use 1 Cor 14:40 to get their congregations to go along with “whatever” is being dished out, just so that they may be comfy with operating in a controlling spirit…

“Let all things be done decently and in order.”

But let’s look at exactly what those words meant when they were written according to Strong’s Greek Dictionary. The result is really quite interesting.
The word “decently” actually means that something is to be done honestly[1],to be well done[2], that the fashion[3] in which it is done is actually to echo[4]:to hold in contiguity or to hold in contact with along one side.

Pretty much sounds like our definition of echo, doesn’t it? What are our church services to echo?

Jesus told us this in Matthew 6:10:

Thy kingdom come. (Which means)Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.


The Bible tells us exactly how everything on earth is to be done: As led by the Holy Spirit of God.

There are some things that the Bible gives us explicit directions on how to do, such as 1 Timothy 5:20

Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

Luke 17:3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

2 Timothy 4:2 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

Titus 1:13 This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;

Titus 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”

But a Sword!

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I have come to turn a man against his father,a daughter against her mother,a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law,a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’

“Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. Whoever does not take up their cross and follow me is not worthy of me.Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.

“Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”

All I can say is amen!
