Once upon a time, I unconsciously related with inspired ministrations like a buffet, but now, I do so with fear and trembling, knowing that this is the only way I can unlock my destiny which has been hidden with Christ Jesus in God (Col. 3:3)
But now I realize that I don’t have the timing of eternity on my side and must fight the good fight of faith while the sun still rise and set. I find myself tarrying with that blessed blank question “WHAT MANNER OF MEN OUT WE TO BE IN ALL IN ALL HOLY CONVERSATION AND GODLINESS, LOOKING FOR AND HASTING UNTO THE COMING OF THE DAY OF GOD…” 2Pet. 3:11-12
Receiving His instructions (commandments) is the only access to partaking of His life (Prov. 4:13/6:23/10:17 & Jn. 12:50). His life remains an unearthly conversation (Phil. 3:20) which we only have a shallow knowledge of, but thanks be unto God who has been multiplying grace and peace unto us by speaking plainly of his exalted son Jesus.
Phil. 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven (i.e. by sighting their lives, one can clearly see heaven and understand God’s will); from whence also we look for the Savior…
Non-Negotiable Counsels of God's Kingdom - Part 10The Lord is at hand and the gospel that would redeem the souls of men is coming the way of nations. God is serious about sealing people with his name (nature) as we can also see the devil desperate about sealing people with his name (nature). There is an increase of the revelation of Christ (Gal. 1:16/Rom. 16:25) that is bringing about the sealing of men and women with His name. Who and what you end up being sealed with all depends on whose side you yield to.
God has not appointed us unto wrath but unto salvation (1 Thes. 5:9). The reason we got born again is so that we can be fully saved (1Pet. 1:5&9). We were appointed unto salvation; that is the ultimate of God’s plan for man. Some are children of wrath by nature (Eph. 2:3), but we are not children of wrath. Rather, we are vessels of mercy prepared unto glory (Romans 9:23).Salvation starts as an EVENT (new birth), should continue in us as a PROCESS (1Pet. 1:23) and culminate in PERFECTION (Heb. 6:1b/Matt. 5:48) so that we obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ
1Thes. 5:2 … “ for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”
The Lord is preparing us so that day will not come upon us as a thief, because those upon whom that day will come upon as a thief are believers who are in darkness. So much light is coming to us now and God is encouraging and enjoining us to walk in the light. If you are walking in the light, you will know about that day. The Lord is really at hand now.
This is how we show that we are of the day; by putting on the breastplate of faith and love which is the secret of being sober (1Thes. 5:6b). A sober person is someone who always walks in love and that is how to wait for the coming of the Lord. When you are not walking in the light (in the revelation of the name of the Lord), then you are asleep.
The End Time Move is about Salvation. It is about changing man (the soul) inside out. It is about redeeming you from the earth/humanity (Rev. 14:4) and adopting you into godhood (the Godhead). That is the salvation God has ordained for man which would guarantee that you be redeemed from man, kindred, tongues and tribes, and that redemption is in the Lord Jesus.
Rev. 14:4 …These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.Jesus is revealing the way He lives to us, which is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from our own lifestyle; He is completely different from the present man. We lives as a divine man and the only thing that can win us from the ways of man is the light of the Lord. If we know the extent to which we need salvation, we will weep.
The Lord needs to really show us who He is so we see the dire need for salvation. WE NEED SALVATION MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE! We need to be saved from the ways of man. We have been men all along, even though we have been speaking in tongues. We have been living like men and reacting like men with our conversation. THE ONLY THING THAT SAVES IS THAT LIFESTYLE AND THAT CONVERSATION THAT IS IN THE LORD JESUS.WE MUST COME WITH A LOT OF REPENTANCE SO THAT WE CAN BE SAVED, BECAUSE WHAT HAS BEEN TATTOOED IN US ARE THE WAYS OF MAN, WHICH WOULD ULTIMATELY CALL FOR GOD’S WRATH. After we got born again, we still carried earthly ways for years until the Lord unveils His ways to us. The Lord is bringing us to a place where we will look like fools (stupid people) just like Jesus once looked before men while on earth. People will take us for granted and despise us (1Cor. 1:28b). Anything short of the way the Lord lives falls short of salvation, is death and would ultimately incur wrath.
I recall when Jesus was in the garden was about to be arrested. Peter reacted the way natural man would by pulling out his sword and cutting one of the ears of the servant of the high priest. That is a natural man and such a man cannot stand where God is standing. Such a man cannot live with God. The philosophy of every man is to defend yourself like Peter did. Matt. 26:51–52
But the Lord is not like that. The Bible says, ‘The Lord is my Light and my Salvation’. In the midst of that opposition, war and threat to kill Him, Jesus was still able to pick the ear of one of His attackers and glue it back in place (Luke 22:51). JESUS REMEMBERED TO DO GOOD IN THE MIDST OF TROUBLE. He was so calm in the midst of opposition; He picked the ear, glued it and told Peter, ‘That is not how to live. Those who kill by the sword will die by the sword.’ (Matt. 26:52)The nature of the Lamb is Love; Love suffers long and is kind. Many of us cannot remember to be kind in the midst of trouble, when people are looking for our head. As long as we are like this (merciless), we cannot be admitted into the realm of God. The realm of God is a realm where, in the face of opposition, you can still be kind and good. This is not just a revelation; it is a commandment: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matt. 5:44). We are commanded to come unto the place where God is.
YOU CANNOT LIVE WITH HIM EXCEPT YOU ARE LIVING IN THE LIGHT HE IS LIVING IN – 1Jn. 1:7The Lord is calling us to something very high. I see God bringing us to a realm. He is not just giving us revelation; HE IS ACTUALLY COMMANDING US TO COME TO A REALM. The Lord is bringing us into a realm of love where there will be strong brotherly love. The Lord wants to make us children. He is calling us to the realm of children where we will be like children in malice. It is a beautiful realm. He wants us to relate with one another as though we never wronged each other. No matter what your brother or sister might have done to you, the offence must not be carried overnight because this realm of God does not permit that.
You can be angry but do not let the sun goes down on your anger (Eph. 4:26). That is how to be sober and that is how to live as children of the day. One thing about the knowledge of God is that it comes on the increase when you give a commensurate walk to previous ones brought to you. When light comes, you must take a step in the direction of that light.
PAUL WAS PRAYING FOR THE COLOSSIAN CHRISTIANS THAT THEY MAY BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL IN ALL WISDOM AND SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING SO THAT THEY MAY WALK WORTHY OF THE LORD (COL. 1:9–11). SO THE REASON FOR THE INFILLING OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD IS TO PRODUCE A WORTHY WALK THAT PLEASES HIM. YOU CANNOT FULLY PLEASE THE LORD EXCEPT LIGHT COMES. AS YOU PLEASE HIM, YOU INCREASE IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD. WHEN YOU WALK IN THE LIGHT THAT HAS BEEN BROUGHT YOUR WAY, MORE LIGHT WOULD BE GIVEN
Christianity is like a dunghill where people dump various rubbish and yet you keep quiet (because of that inward tranquility). It was said concerning Jesus ‘His voice would not be heard on the street.’ Matt. 12:19Henceforth, what we are going to be seeing in our midst is the manifestation of the love of God at its peak. IT IS A COMMANDMENT WHICH IS FOR OUR SALVATION AND GLORY. THE LORD IS NOT GOING TO TOLERATE SOME THINGS AGAIN. HE IS GOING TO REFUSE THEM VEHEMENTLY. You can never see children quarrel; it is the adults that teach children such malice. Children forget offences easily unlike adults and only learn how to keep malice from adults.
