"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
When one truly loves God with all of their heart and mind they become part of God’s little flock in Luke 12:32 along with many verses all through the words we are to live by which separate the few [chosen] from the many being of this world. And those are very strong words which only a strong mind led by the Spirit of God can understand [1 Corinthians 2:13] because Christ has chosen them to be out of this world as written in John 15:18-19.
The only way to become close to God requires a continual self-examination which just automatically becomes your non-stop
way of life because. . .
"You have been raised to life with Christ, so set your hearts on the things that are in heaven, where Christ sits on his throne at the right side of God. Keep your minds fixed on things there, not on things here on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Your real life is Christ and when he appears, then you too will appear with him and share his glory! Colossians 3:1-4
. . .therefore darkness is seen everywhere through all human ways within a world ruled by a god none know in truth with his ways in all people. . .and our freedom as created humans give us the freedom of choice between right or wrong, truth or lies; and only true believers in God the Father and Jesus Christ are supplied truth in the Holy Bible; yet because they have not the faith to believe every word from their creator, they are all walking in unknown darkness because of what the father of lies feeds their minds through false teachers, brethren or incomplete thought they do believe. . .
"You’ve forgotten the law of your God: you’ve rejected My judgments.
I’ll reject you because of your lack of knowledge—reject you as My priests;
I’ll even forget your children! Hosea 4:6
. . .and without our own self examination that keeps our minds set on things above always, and not things on the earth, we could very easily fall back into this world that we can’t be apart of if we want to reign with Christ.
Christ came down from heaven not to do His
own will, but the will of the Father. . .
"I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. John 5:30
Christ tells this world of believers the only way to make their salvation eternal. . .
"And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him; Hebrews 5:9
Christ also left us all with an example
that we are to follow through suffering, and always looking to the Father to direct our paths while knowing we can do nothing ourselves. Proverbs 3:5-6, John 8:28b-29
For you were called to this kind of life, as Isaiah said,
"He did no wrong deed,
and no evil word came from His mouth.
Many believers face intense persecution, but western Christians tend not to experience anything beyond social pressure. Are we merely pursuing comfort, or are we willing to swim against culture?
The Anointed One suffered for us and left us His example so that we could follow in His steps. 1 Peter 2:21
Because God is love, Christ is also love, and we are to have the mind of our Lord Jesus Christ. . .
"Get beyond yourselves and protecting your own interests; be sincere, and secure your neighbors’ interests first.
In other words, adopt the mind-set of Jesus the Anointed. Live with His attitude in your hearts. Remember:
Though He was in the form of God,
He chose not to cling to equality with God;
But He poured Himself out to fill a vessel brand new;
a servant in form
and a man indeed.
The very likeness of humanity,
He humbled Himself,
obedient to death— Philippians 2:4-8
"And to know the love of Christ, which passeth
knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:19
If only all who use the words of how much they love our Lord Jesus Christ and Father God Almighty could just understand and apply those few words of scripture in their lives, this world would not be the world that it is full of evils and darkness.
And it is those actions of following Christ which are the determining factor for God by what He sees within the hearts of every individual that He has created. Hebrews 4:12-13 tell you clearly God sees all things, and just those words alone regarding God’s all seeing knowledge with nothing hid ought to tell all that no matter what their lips may say - the whole truth and nothing but the truth is in all human hearts which cannot lie nor hide anything only God can see, and what’s within us all determines how our Father is going to judge us. . .
The choices and consequences are clear. Rely on people alone, and life will be tough and brutish. Rely on the one True God, and life will become [spiritually] rich and productive.
heart is most devious and incurably sick.
Who can understand it?
It is I, the Eternal One, who probes the innermost heart
and examines the innermost thoughts.
I will compensate each person justly,
according to his ways and by what his actions deserve. (Jeremiah 17:9-10)
Love is the key to gaining wisdom and knowledge with understanding; because without the love of Christ we are as nothing. . .
"I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell. I may have the gift of inspired preaching; I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have all the faith needed to move mountains—but if I have no love, I am nothing. 1 Corinthians 13:1-2
"I am the vine, and you
are the branches. If you abide in Me and I in you, you will bear great
fruit. Without Me, you will accomplish nothing. John 15:5
"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4
To overcome this world is to overcome the god of this world and his spirit that works in the church people of disobedience, and remember, even our faith no matter how great it may be is as nothing without love; therefore all believers lacking God's commanded love towards others. . .
" . . . is like a branch that is tossed out and shrivels up and is later gathered to be tossed into the fire to burn. John 15:6
"To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. To him that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before His angels. He that hath an ear, let him what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 2:7, 3:5
Because God is so much love, His glory goes so far beyond comprehension of the human minds of His created creatures that only His Spirit of Truth can be you’re guide, and to receive His Spirit that overcomes the wicked one can only be received by those whom are filled with the love of Christ that passes knowledge so that over time your body and mind will be filled with the fullness of God working within you for all of eternity;
So what exactly does all this about love
mean and what’s the point? Love is
Satan’s worst enemy!! Satan does not want you to have the love of Christ,
because if you do, you have overcome him. So what does the master father of
lies, murderer and deceiver do for his pleasure? He blinds through placing his
lies in all minds psychologically. He misleads the meaning of scriptures in the mind of believers. He
changes truth into deception. He steals love from the heart and replaces that love
with his spirit which has misled and deceived the whole world through their human pride.
"In the past you were spiritually dead because of your disobedience and sins. At that time you followed the world's evil way; you obeyed the ruler of the spiritual powers in space, the spirit who now controls the people who disobey God. Ephesians 2:1-2
What you just read from Ephesians are two of the most misunderstood verses in the entire Bible, and the reason why is because when this world of church goers gather together in the buildings of man to sing hymns, lift their arms to glorify God, shout words of praise, honor Christs birth being Christmas, His resurrection being Easter along with all other religious activities including tithes; what none, no, not one realize is what Satan has done to their minds making them to unknowingly worship him rather than the only true God they know not because of their disobedience with the first reason being they have no love for others as commanded while taking part in pagan holidays with sickening and grotesque being a Truth So Sad that None Will Believe. . . http://godsunknownmessengerr.webs.com/truth-on-christmas-and-santa . . .therefore can never know God in His Spirit of Truth according to His own words in the Bible which believers refuse to believe - and my calling is teaching what God's love truly is according to scripture rather than the ways of man in a world where God cannot be found and is very displeased. . .
"The Lord looks down from heaven at us humans
to see if there are any who are wise,
any who worship him.
But they have all gone wrong;
they are all equally bad.
Not one of them does what is right,
not a single one. Psalms 14:2-3
Are you not human and of this world? Is not every word of God pure? The question that you must ask yourself now
is this; how honest am I being with myself?
Have I proven all things that I do or am associated with via scripture? We can all tell ourselves that we love our Lord so everything is fine
even though God is trying to warn us that what we think and what we feel is not
from God our Father, but from the god of this world who is the father of lies
full of hate with ill feelings towards all that he calmly places a false
security into the minds of that he has so well deceived because he is a
professional going back many millions or perhaps billions of years, therefore very good at what he does which is to deceive.
Now what is most natural for the human mind is to plead innocence. Or say not me or my church; or to say I am saved and forgiven so whatever you say does not include me or just any of uncountable reasons the mind can come up with as the prince and power of the air fills it with his own thoughts and ways which have deceived all earthly minds with human pride being one of believers greatest downfalls. Proverbs 16:18
Would you like some words from God that will clarify and make his truth easy to see? All that you need to do is read His own words directly with your heart opened to only God Almighty.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thy own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
God just gave instruction that we all must follow because only Him can we trust being thy word is truth.
Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he
also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. Also when I cry and shout He
shutteth out my prayer. Thou hast covered with anger, and persecuted us: thou
hast slain, thou hast not pitied. Thou hast covered thyself with a cloud, that
our prayer should not pass through. Proverbs 21:13 and Lamentations 3:8, 43-44.
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honor. Proverbs 21:21
He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. Proverbs 28:27
Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them
that put their trust in Him. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord
is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For the word of the
Eternal is perfect and true;
His actions are always faithful and right. Psalms 12:6, 18:30, 33:4
Because God is love and because Christ showed us all so much love by even saying;
“. . .Father forgive them for they know not what they do”. Luke 23:34
And those were spoken out of love for the men that had just tortured Him prior to His crucifixion; and that is the love our Father is looking for in each one of us as His created beings. Do you have that love of Christ for others deep within your heart that God knows better than you? Because without you are not keeping His commandments so there shall be no entrance through the gates into the tree of life John 13:34, Revelation 22:14-15. KJV
The blindness of people truly saddens me because God tells everything exactly as it is, yet man has chosen man or his own mind for his gods before our Father God who created all things. God even tells us all through His love to examine ourselves, but the teachings of man or people led by their spirit in man have given all a false security blanket that shall only burn in the coming 31/2 years of affliction [beginning of sorrows] followed by tribulation. Matthew 24:4-8, Revelation 6:1-8
Paul boils it all down for the believers in Corinth. Religious people often spend their time practicing rituals, projecting dogma, and going through routines that might look like Christianity on the outside but that lack the essential ingredient that brings all of it together—love! It is a loving God who birthed creation and now pursues a broken people in the most spectacular way. That same love must guide believers, so faith doesn’t appear to be meaningless noise.
“Love is patient; love is kind. Love isn’t envious, doesn’t boast, brag, or strut about. There’s no arrogance in love; it’s never rude, crude, or indecent—it’s not self-absorbed. Love isn’t easily upset. Love doesn’t tally wrongs. 2 Corinthians 13:4-5- Voice
There is no end to words of conversation between people that seek only to please our Father God - So we simply hand our lives over to Him to do with whatsoever pleases only Him because we no longer belong unto our selves.
