“5 That in every thing you are enriched by Him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
7 So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9 God is faithful, by Whom you were called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.” 1 Cor. 1:5-9
Those of us who are called unto fellowship with God by our Lord Jesus Christ…those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, are promised to be enriched by God as we occupy and wait on the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Looking unto Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done for whosoever will believe, He confirms us; keeps us precept upon precept and line upon line drawing us unto holiness and righteousness. Old things pass away and all things become new as the Holy Spirit circumcises our heart superintends the work of God in our life.
Abstinence through will power by looking unto ourselves as the source does not confirm us unto the end. Good intentions through sincerity will not enrich us in all utterance and knowledge of God. The precious Promises of God found through out the Word of God are given on the condition of faith in the Cross of Christ.
The Cross of Christ is the Power of God unto us who are called into fellowship with God. Many do not understand they are no longer in fellowship with God because they have neglected the condition of God’s fellowship and have presented unto Him Cain’s sacrifice. Vain philosophies have been taught as biblical doctrine and they have been deceived. Sadly their pride is keeping them from repenting of their error and just as pharaoh’s heart was hardened, so too is their’s.
“20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My Voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.
21 To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with Me in My Throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His Throne.
22 He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches.” Revelation 3:20-22
