Be Aware!!!

Hmmm…… satan has seriously increased his stakes knowing fully well that his time is very limited; “Killings everywhere” (whites killing blacks which might end up in war should the blacks start to retaliate), “signs, lying wonders, deceivableness of unrighteousness….”(of sayings that Jesus is a story created by some to rule some…., scientific discoveries and nudity being the fashion of the day), “terrorism”, “the porn, club, and hotel industries not forgetting “illegal drugs hub” thrive more…”, “homosexual-ism is on the rampant”, etc

2 Thessalonians 2
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

Matthew 24
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Be watchful, be vigilant!
Shalom!

Fear.

Luke 12:5
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

When a brethren preaches to you and at that time the SPIRIT of GOD ministers to your soul, a kind of fear will grip you and you’ll instantly start to recollect all your evil deeds…… the agony of it all will make you hate sin so bad you’ll cry out for deliverance, never wanting to do such AGAIN. (though you may still fall time and time again but you will always get up and run to Christ, genuinely asking Him to help you overcome that weakness), THAT “kind of fear” IS THE FEAR OF GOD (the kind Joseph had which made him flee from the appearance of sin (in the form of Potiphar’s wife) – Gen 39:7-9). Don’t mix it up!

Shalom!

Open letter to the called and gifted.

Thank You Holy Spirit.

Matthew 7
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

I was reading through Matt 7 and when I got to verse 15 down to 23,something struck me. Everyone listed in vs 22 had either the gift or were called and then I remembered the parable of the talents (Matt 25:24-30). Hmm…. to whom much is given, much is sure expected (James 3:1)

Remember the life of Moses(called and gifted) as narrated in the scriptures, who received a greater judgement than the Israelite (who were always erring and rebelling), missing the promised land due to an error he made.

All the “called and gifted” should please look into the lives of people like Samson, Moses, Eli, Saul, Judas, etc, and learn great lessons from them because most of these ones erred but still continued using the gifts given them by GOD (NOT knowing they’ve gone out of The Way), also working in their “calling” because the gifts and calling are without repentance (Rom 11:29).

Those Christ talked about in Matt 7:22 still thought they were on the right path because they could still access the DIVINE not knowing they’ve missed it along the way.
Little wonder Jesus Christ always warns us to always “take heed” → BE AWARE (Luke 11:35, 1 Corinth 10:12, Luke 21:34, Matt 13:33)

Be SOBER, be VIGILANT (1Peter 5:8), that’s the WORD for these last days, brethren. If satan could enter into Peter (and even Judas) then, while being a disciple under Jesus (Matt 16:23) <and even after all Peter’s boasting that he won’t deny Christ> Luke 22:31-34, 59-60, he’ll definitely use some too now who aren’t watchful and vigilant enough (just like he did Judas) because he’s very cunning at disguising evil for good and good for evil which is why the scripture warns us to “try every spirit….” (1 John 4:1)

1 Corinthians 3:5-15
5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour.
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
13 Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
14 If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
15 If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Did you also note what Paul said in verse 5?? “…..but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?” which simply means that ALL BELIEVERS ought to function as “ministers”! EVERY ONE OF THE BELIEVING FOLD IS “CALLED AND GIFTED” (1 Peter 2:6-9) and those still not functioning as such will account just like the “one talent” man in Matt 25:24-30.

A word is enough for the wise!

Shalom!
