“And the multitude sat about Him, and they said unto Him, Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren without seek for thee. And He answered them, saying, Who is My mother, or My brethren? And He looked round about on them which sat about Him, and said, Behold My mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the Will of God, the same is My brother, and My sister, and mother.” Mark 3:32-35.
A person’s love of God will manifest itself in their seeking of His Will and keeping of His Commandments. The Believer can keep the Commandments only when their faith is placed solely and exclusively in what Jesus did on Calvary’s Cross and we rest in Him. Jesus fulfilled the 4th Commandment, “Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Exodus 20:8. He is our Sabbath everyday, 24 hours a day. Jesus Christ is our rest.
Only when one’s faith is placed in Jesus, Who He is and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross to give us victory over our sin nature can the Holy Spirit come in and keep the Commandments through us. The Holy Spirit enables us to live the holy life we are called to live. “ For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2.
No matter our self efforts, we are unable to keep the moral law without a change of heart. The world blames our circumstances for the condition of our heart and negates one’s responsibility to uphold morality. The Word of God says there is none good but God (Luke 18:19). The world declares the sinner innocent due to circumstances and the Saint guilty. The world says we are all innately good.
A heart without love for God will not be able to keep His moral Commandments nor will it seek His Will. The Holy Spirit is not commissioned to enable, empower and endue a heart without true love for God with HIS holiness and righteousness. These are the reasons we preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified. These are the reasons we preach deliverance to the captives. There is a lost and dying world who needs to know Jesus Christ NOT 40 days of purpose, shemitahs and harbingers. These are another gospel preaching another Jesus who are accursed (Galatians 1:8) with the bondage of religion. If Jesus Christ is not preached to the lost and bound, Who He is and what He as done, a love of God is not planted but seed of self righteousness. The Saint who has been born again for 30 years or 30 minutes fights the fight of faith everyday, faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified…declare HIM and not presumptions.
“Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:12-13.
Seek Him, Jesus Christ, He has a lot invested in you….He will lead you out. Preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified, be determined to know nothing but Jesus Christ and Him crucified. God’s children our bound by religion, they are bound by those preaching another gospel…seek Him for His Truth and His will.
