“Who hath saved us, and called [us] with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,”
2 Timothy 1:9
Brothers, Sisters we are Called With An Holy Calling that The Father set in Jesus before the world was known. It is The Holiness of Jesus that is presented to you this day, to Walk In The Spirit and Not To Fulfill The Lust Of Your Flesh. Jesus Is Holy and it is Required of us To Be Holy even as Jesus has given each of us the Ability to do so.
Now what does this mean? Our Excuse is… I Will Never Be Perfect… God Knows My Heart… We Are Saved By Grace, Not Works! Because of what you have been taught, these are True Statements, but are not The Whole Truth. First the Godhead (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) say, Be Holy, Be Perfect as I Am.
“Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I [am] the LORD your God.”
“15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”
1 Peter 1:15-16
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”
Since the Days Of Old we have been Called, Required To Walk In Holiness before the Heathen, the Lost. We are to SET AN EXAMPLE to them that We Serve A Holy God, that does Require a Blood Sacrifice, whose name is Jesus to Save Us From Our Sin’s, to Set Us Into A Perfect State before The Father, Cleansed, Washed Clean By The Holy Blood Of Jesus, Our Lord, Our Savior!!!
“9 The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it? 10 I the LORD search the heart, [I] try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, [and] according to the fruit of his doings.”
“21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.”
The Fruit that we Bare, tells others our Hearts, Our Walk speaks Volumes to the Heathen. I have seen them shut their mouths at the Presence Of Jesus within me. I have seen the Lost give Honor because of My Walk In Jesus. I have seen and have participated In The Moving Of Mountains, In Healings, In Storms Made Peaceful, All because of The Holiness that I Walk, because My Heart and My Mind have been Transformed Into The Ways Of God… MY CHOICE!!!
“33 Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by [his] fruit. 34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
For it is by Grace that we are Saved and there is NO WORK that I could do that would ever make me Presentable to The Father, BUT, I will not use that for an Excuse To Sin! We are Saved By Grace because The Father Loves Us so much that the one thing that was His Most Precious thing and nothing else can even come close, that is, His Son, Jesus did The Father Give to be Our Eternal Sacrifice! We Owe a Debt that can never be repaid, even if you were to live a thousand lifetimes!
“15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.”
Brothers and Sisters understand this Scripture! We have the Choice… it is within us to Choose Whom We Will Serve, it is Not our Flesh, it is Not Satan, it is Not The World… IT IS OUR CHOICE!!! Yes, our Flesh is Weak and Yes we Fall and Sin, but let us Not Use these things as an Excuse to Continue in that Weakness, our Fall, our Sin!!! Jesus, whom dwells In Us through The Holy Spirit whom has Sealed Us unto the Day Of Redemption has OVERCOME, HAS OVERCOME ALL THINGS WHICH ARE NOT HOLY BEFORE THE FATHER and HAS GIVEN US THE POWER AND AUTHORITY TO DO SO AS WELL!!!
When Brothers and Sisters have you Judged Your Selves according to The Word Of God. To many of you are fed the Milk of the Word and not the Depth that God intended. Too many of you have made an Excuse for every Unholy Sin that you commit and you have said that lie so many times that now you believe it is The Truth! You are held Captive Once Again and have Hardened Your Hearts because you are Tired of Hearing!
I, We, Serve A Holy God, do you really think that The Father is going to accept the way you are right now, that because of Jesus Blood that you can do all the sin you want, but it is The Blood Of Jesus is all that matters! If so, You Are Ignorant!!! We will All Face Jesus In Judgement! The First Judgement is Whether your Name is written in the Lambs Book Of Life, which Can be Removed!
“18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.”
“2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. 4 Nevertheless I have [somewhat] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. 5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
“30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the [world] to come.”
God’s Calling is not to be taken lightly, we need to take it serious, for our very Eternal Life Depends On It! The Word says WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS! That is, we should and can Overcome All Things that would Rise Up against the Knowledge Of Jesus!
“31 What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? [It is] God that justifieth. 34 Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Understand this Scripture, there is NOTHING on Earth that can Separate us from the Love Of God… except two things, 1. YOUR Own Free Will and 2. Sin. These Scriptures have been watered down by modern man, changed us into thinking that it does not matter what goes on, nothing can separate us from God, but this is a Half Truth. It is a Fact that The Love Of God will never be Separated from us, which means, even those whom The Father sent His Son to Save and Who Rejected Jesus will be cast into the Lake Of Fire The Father Still Loves. The Father never intended for Man to go into the Lake Of Fire, but it is because Man Choose Sin Over God.
Get it into your Hearts, your Minds, that Yes we are Saved By Grace, but that Grace is not a Get Out Jail Free Card, there are Requirements that have to be met, that is, we must turn our lives over to Jesus Fully, Jesus is Not a Part Time Lord and Savior, but as we draw close to Jesus, He draws close to us. Jesus Wants a Relationship, that is, He wants to be part of Every Instant of Your Life so that You Can BE HOLY before Him, and before The Father.
As the End Of The Gentiles comes closer, we will need to Draw Closer to Jesus than we ever have. Sin is run like water in every area of Life, we are bombarded at every turn of Life! We need to first Examine our Lives, to make sure that Jesus is not only our Savior, but is Lord. Second we need to lean on each other as Holy Believers, lifting each other up in Prayer and in Giving and in Helping when needed, without question we need to do these things.
Do not take your Salvation for granted, it cost Jesus, it will cost You!
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”
2 Corinthians 13:5
“37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. 39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.”
Jesus does not want to send anyone to The Lake Of Fire, He would much rather have a Loving Relationship with you, but, understand this… Jesus is Prepared to Pass Judgement and His Judgement is sure and Ever Lasting!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
