LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED

“1 Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me.
 
2 In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
 
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.
 
4 And where I go you know, and the way you know.
 
5 Thomas said unto Him, Lord, we know not where You go; and how can we know the way?
 
6 Jesus said unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man comes unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14:1-6
 
Let not your heart be troubled for we know the Way, the Truth and the Life. We know His Voice and He knows our name. He will lead us into the path of righteousness for His Name sake.
 
For those who do not know the Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, they do not know His peace. Fear overtakes some, while hate reigns in the heart of others. As a Believer, we must know the Word of God for OURSELVES. We must pray for discernment in these last of the last days. There is a falling away in the church…not a revival. The Endtime Church shows Jesus on the outside knocking, not the inside.
 
He is calling His Children closer to Him, to come out from among the religious and be ye separate. To be a light in this dark world. The Cross of Christ alone is the solution for man’s problem, not Christian psychologist who point to vain philosophies for victory over sin.
 
Jesus Christ came to die on Calvary’s Cross to pay the penalty of sin for the believing sinner AND break the power of sin for the Believer. Remember the Way. We must turn back to our FIRST Love everyday. We must deny ourselves DAILY and fight the good fight of faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Our intellect, talent and abilities are a comfortable crutch…but still, they are a crutch.
 
The Spirit of God wants to breathe life into the Believer so that we may live and not die but we must look unto Jesus…He and He alone is the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to God except through HIS Finished Work on Calvary’s Cross. Look to Him and live!

SPIRIT OF CONVICTION

“19 When any one hears the Word of the Kingdom, and understands it not, then comes the wicked one, and catches away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
 
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that hears the Word, and anon (immediately) with joy receives it;
 
21 Yet has he not root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the Word, by and by he is offended.
 
22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that hears the Word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the Word, and he becomes unfruitful.” Matthew 13:19-22
 
Some have no desire to understand the Word of God. Others will allow Satan to come in and take that which the Lord has sewn in his or her heart and some will be offended by the tribulation which arises when they receive the Word of the Lord and to be sure…tribulation will arise..
 
Then there are those whose ground has been plowed by the Spirit of conviction. Their’s is good ground. They seek understanding and the Lord is faithful and true to give them more understanding.
 
The initiative lies within the person. Willful deafness, blindness and dullness is the result of a heart which has waxed gross. They have heard and heard the Truth of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for daily living for God. They have heard that Jesus is the Source and His Cross the means by which we receive from God, yet they are indeed perishing. The Lord will allow even the understanding of which they had to be lost because of their unbelief in the Cross of Christ for daily living. His Grace will not be sufficient as the troubles of this world mount in the heart because they no longer look unto Him. They have deemed the Cross of Christ foolishness and It has in fact become of no effect in their lives.
 
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the Gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the Cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
 
18 For the preaching of the Cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are Saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:17-18
 
Consider how you receive, your “reaction” to the preaching of Jesus Christ and Him crucified for daily living for God. Is it foolishness? If so, you’re perishing my friend. Is it the power of God? Understanding, you understand. Seeing, you indeed see. Hearing, you hear. However, you nor I have yet to comprehend. Jesus Christ is alive! Who He is and what He has done for whosoever will believe upon Him for daily living is inexhaustible! From glory to glory, we are growing in HIS image by faith in HIM!
 
It is never too late to turn back to the Cross of Christ this side of Heaven. No matter how religious, self righteous or proud we have become, the Lord will run to His Children who turn back to Him with a broken and contrite heart. He is faithful and true to pick them up out of that miry clay and place them on higher ground. He and He alone has the power expel the sin that so easily besets us. It’s a matter of the heart. It’s our decision to make. Do we grow in grace or do we have no desire for more of the Lord?
 
Fight the good fight of faith. Look unto Jesus Christ and Him crucified. Signs and wonders will follow those who believe. The world is watching. Choose Jesus.

SEARCH OUR HEARTS O’LORD

38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from You.
 
39 But He answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the Prophet Jonas:
 
40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
 
41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.” Matthew 12:38-41
 
There will be many religious who continue looking for signs as the wicked repent of their wicked ways and turn to the Cross of Christ Jesus for victory over death, hell and the grave. As the believing sinners come to Jesus as their Lord and Saviour; washed in the Blood of the Lamb, they will be more righteous than the religious who continue in their sanctimonious ceremonies and religious rites in order to receive God’s Grace.
 
“13 If I shut up Heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My People;
 
14 If My Pople, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:13-14
 
The pestilence has come, we have humbled ourselves and prayed…but have we turned from our wicked ways? Do we continue to seek signs? Do we want deliverance from sin and it’s effects or from the Roman Empire for temporal satisfaction?
 
At Calvary, Jesus Christ paid the penalty of sin for the believing sinner AND broke the power of sin for the believing Saint. The problem remains, just as it was in Israel, there are far too many Saints who do not believe the Blood of Christ is sufficient and instead, choose to rely on their religious rites. Seeing they see not. Hearing they hear not and neither do they understand their wicked ways before the Lord in order to turn from them. They are crying out before the Lord. They are praying for our land to be healed but they have not yet repented of their wicked ways because they know not their wicked ways.
 
21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate Thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against Thee?
 
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them my enemies.
 
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
 
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalms 139:21-24
 
Search our hearts O’Lord and show us our wicked ways…lead us in the way everlasting.
 
Pray this prayer and He is faithful and just to do just that. The Lord WANTS to sup with us and us with Him but we must come out from among the religious and be ye separate.

SPOILED

“28 But if I (JESUS) cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the Kingdom of God is come unto you.
 
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house.” Matthew 12:28-29
 
There are some of us who really need to get a hold of this. As a Believer, we live in this world; a fallen world whose god is satan.
 
However, we have One Who has gone before us; an Elder Brother, Jesus Christ, Who has spoiled the devil’s goods, bound his power and utterly spoiled his house for whosoever will believe upon Him.
 
“14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His Cross;
 
15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.” Colossians 2:14-15
 
Hear me today, at Calvary Jesus Christ spoiled every principality and power. The Believer’s victory remains in the Cross of Christ. The shed Blood of Jesus has not lost it’s value in this worldly system. The madness of this world is temporal. The storm rage to and fro but the Blood of Jesus is still enough to redeem the believing sinner from the deepest of pits when they call upon His Name.
 
In the worldly system a gallon of gasoline may go up or down in value. We pay a dollar today for a gallon of gas and tomorrow we may pay $2 for a gallon of gas. In our carnal minds, that’s how we operate but this is NOT how the Blood of Christ Jesus is valued in the Eyes of God. No, no! It is the price HE paid at Calvary that maintains it’s “value” in the Eyes of God for our Salvation, not our religious rites and ceremonies. Our abilities, intellect and vain philosophies have absolutely zero value in the Eyes of God for our Redemption OR our Sanctification. Our faith in these works is a currency that holds no value. It is akin to offering up 10 marbles for a gallon of gas.
 
Jesus Christ paid the price for our Redemption. HE blotted out the handwriting of ordinance which was against us and it is our faith in that, HIS Finished Work, which freely gives us all that we need according to His riches in Glory. This currency, faith in the Cross of Christ for both Salvation AND daily living for God, affords the Believer the Divine flow of God’s Grace that no devil in hell can hinder because his house (satan’s house) has been utterly spoiled by the Blood of Christ. The devil may bluster and blow but for those who are in Jesus Christ, there will remain a peace beyond understanding. We know in Whom we have believed and we know His Work is finished. His victory is our victory. Soon and very soon, our faith will become sight…until then, we must occupy until He comes. We must keep fighting that good fight of faith – the only currency that will spend in God’s economy.

TASTE AND SEE

“6 But I (JESUS) say unto you, That in this place is One greater than the Temple.
 
7 But if you had known what this means, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.” Matthew 12:6-7
 
The sacrements of todays church are many and are wrong. Some of their various methods of receiving God’s Divine Grace are through water baptism, church membership, the Lord’s Supper and many, many more. Their religious doctrine is nothing more than philosophies from the vanity of man’s mind.
 
If they only knew what their methods of receiving Grace are, their sacraments would be forsaken and they would not condemn the guiltless…those who have not taken part of their vanities.
 
There is but ONE method of receiving God’s Divine Grace and that is Jesus Christ, Who is the Source, and HIS Sacrifice made for whosoever will believe, as the means by which we receive from God. Our sacraments will not do. They are as dung in the eyes of the Lord. Dead works producing fruit unto death…spiritual death.
 
Let it be known, there is a river – a river of life. The Blood of Christ Jesus that flowed from Calvary gives life to the Believer. It is HIS Sacrifice that paid the penalty of our sin. HIS Sacrifice that broke the power of sin. He and He alone can calm the storms. Only Jesus Christ can save the soul of the believing sinner.
 
Be careful not to condemn those who have not believed in the religious sacraments as you do. If you only knew what it meant. If you only knew we are not trying to gain the Grace of God…we have it and by faith in the Cross of Christ ALONE, we are simply maintaining the flow of Grace in our lives. It is a battle fought daily…it is the fight of faith. We are without a doubt determined to know nothing else among you save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
 
“O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusts in Him.” Psalms 34:8

COME UNTO ME

28 Come unto Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
 
29 Take My Yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
 
30 For My Yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
 
The rest of the Believer is found only in Christ Jesus. He alone is our Sabbath and He bids us daily to come unto Him, take His Yoke and learn of Him.
 
The rest we find for our weary souls cannot be earned. We must:
 
🚫DENY OURSELVES – Deny our abilities, talents and intellect used to manipulate situations for our favor. Although these attributes are used with all sincerity and good intentions, they are in fact the heavy yoke we bear. This is the labor that produces death to the weary soul.
 
✝️ Picking up your cross – Our cross is His Yoke, not a burden we must bear. The Cross was a place of great suffering for Jesus Christ but for us who have believed upon Him for our Salvation, the Cross of Christ Jesus is a place of great blessing. It is this Yoke, HIS Yoke that we bear.
 
🚶‍♀️Follow Me (Jesus) – We cannot follow Jesus and learn of Him, learn of His Will and His Ways until we have denied ourselves and put on His Yoke. Then and only then can our weary souls find rest. Only then can we follow Jesus and learn of Him; learn of WHO He is and WHAT He has done for whosoever will believe. In His rest, we find the power of sin broken at Calvary.
 
“23 And Je said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
 
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it.” Luke 9:23-24
 
There is a rest for our weary soul; a peace beyond all understanding…even in this hour and it is found in the Saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. He is our Sabbath and He bids ALL Who will hear to come…come unto Him.

THE REVELATION

Salvation is a matter of revelation, not education. It is the rock of which the Church is built. WHO Jesus is and WHAT JESUS has done for WHOSOEVER wills (wants) to believe is given this revelation.
 
“15 He (JESUS) said unto them, But whom say you that I am?
 
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.
 
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed are You, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood has not revealed it unto you, but My Father which is in Heaven.
 
18 And I say also unto you, That you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:15-18
 
Baptized into Jesus’ Death and regenerated (NOT rehabilitated) into a new creature by the power of the Holy Spirit Who comes to dwell within our hearts is not something one learns how to do. No not at all. It is supernatural as those old things pass away and all things become new. The Holy Spirit cuts asunder to circumcise our hearts to remove those things which aren’t pleasing unto God and places in our hearts God’s desires. HIS Will and HIS Ways are not accomplished by self will and abilities but through the operation of the Holy Spirit working in us; superintending the work of God as we look solely and exclusively unto Jesus Christ and Him crucified. We are indeed determined to know nothing else among you. We have seen the Glory of the Lord and felt His presence in the midst of our storm.
 
This Revelation of Christ Jesus is for WHOSOEVER wills to believe and no devil in hell can prevail against it.

IN THE MIDST OF WOLVES

16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
 
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
 
18 And you shall be brought before governors and kings for My Sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.” Matthew 10:16-18
 
The religious world is greatly opposed to the Cross of Christ Jesus. To be sure, the world is religious. For many their religion is that of political correctness. The source is the vanities of their minds and the means are the philosophies set forth with corresponding rules to follow. This method applies to both the lost and far too often the Saved.
 
For the Believer, this method is cloaked Scripture to appear “righteous” but is nevertheless doctrines of man. The Believer equates the method with Christianity because of the Scripture applied and know not that the Scripture is taken out of context to fit the narrative of the writer.
 
The religious will deliver you up to the councils and you shall be brought before governors for the sake of Jesus Christ and Him crucified. You will be a testimony unto Him when this persecution is allowed. Vain philosophies will not do in this hour. You must know that you know that you know in Whom you have believed. You must understand the Rock on which you stand in His Word lest you bring reproach to Him Name. He wants to sup with you and you with Him but you must come out from among the religious and be ye separate.
 
There is a work to be done. The harvest is truly plenteous. The religious are poised to deliver up the sheep but the religious know not that we have been sent forth by our Shepard wise as serpents and harmless as doves. Little do the religious understand that like a flood, the Cross of Christ Jesus is being lifted up as the standard for whosoever will look and live.
 
There is a sound in the tops of the mulberry trees this morning! There is a stirring amongst God’s Children. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him crucified IS going out to the four corners of the world and soon and very soon we are going to be caught up in the air with our Lord. Today is the day that the harvest MUST be gathered. Pray for the Lord to send out His Laborers to your loved ones and mine. If you cross their path today, tell them Jesus loves them for me and I will do the same. That crack head, drunk, homosexual, etc. often has a Mother, a Daddy, a brother, a sister, a Grandmother or a Grandfather praying for them…praying for YOU to reach out a hand of mercy and point them to the Cross of Christ.
 
“And let it be, when you hear the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then you shall bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before you, to smite the host of the Philistines.” 2 Samuel 5:24

UNDER GRACE

The Fall of Adam is the original sin. All who are born of water (natural child birth) are born under this original sin. The corresponding result of Adam’s original sin is sickness, physical death and all manner of wickedness which can overtake mankind. This is the sin nature born in us because of Adam’s Fall. From Adam’s children to now, all who were born of man are born with a sin nature.
 
To be sure, Jesus Christ was not born of man but of the Spirit of God. He was and is God manifest in the flesh Who came to die to pay the penalty of sin for the believing sinner AND break the power of sin for the believing Saint. The problem today is that not too many Saints choose to believe upon Him for dominion over their sin nature which continues to dwell in all who are born of water and their sin nature continues to have dominion over their lives.
 
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the Law, but under Grace.” Romans 6:14
 
The vain philosophies of man taught as Biblical doctrine have left so many in the church spiritually defeated. Tired and desperate, they continue in the only thing they know to depend upon in this hour of darkness….their willpower, abilities, intellect, etc.. Living under law, any law for deliverance of the sin nature’s dominion, they continue fighting. Refusing to fight the good fight of faith in the Cross of Christ, they keep fighting to gain dominion over sin.
 
There is but one answer to sin and that is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. It is there that whosoever will believe is freely given freedom from the sin nature and it’s corresponding results (sickness, wickedness, etc.). We cannot earn this victory for the victory belongs to Jesus…not us. Looking unto Him to author and finish our faith, evil must flee under the power of God. The Righteousness of God expels wickedness while the self righteousness of man is the result of wickedness.
 
The dominion over our sin nature is witnessed by it’s corresponding results, the Fruit of the Spirit. One whose faith is in the vain philosophies of man cannot produce fruit unto God but only unto death. You will know them by their fruit…especially their out of season fruit. When it seems they should be shaken they are praising. When it seems they should be fearful they are rejoicing. When they should be mad they have peace. When they should be fighting, they have rest. Their out of season fruit sets them apart. They don’t have to fake it until they make it because they have made it. They are DETERMINED to know nothing else among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. They have witnessed the power of the Holy Ghost and cannot be dismayed.
 
This that “they” have is for ALL if we will simply choose this day in whom we are going to believe and recognize that His Work on Calvary’s Cross is sufficient for the day. His Grace which flows uninterrupted as we look unto Him chases us down and overtakes us when the storm clouds appear. We are indeed a peculiar people amongst the world but as scroll through my Facebook feed and look to my family and friends, I am indeed thankful that I am surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses unto Jesus Christ.
 
Sin shall NOT have dominion over me because I am under Grace. Today, His Grace will be sufficient just as it has every other day. He has not changed.
 
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
 
2 Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the Cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the Right Hand of the Throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2

WHY ARE YOU FEARFUL?

“23 And when He was entered into a ship, His Disciples followed Him.
 
24 And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but He was asleep.
 
25 And His Disciples came to Him, and awoke Him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.
 
26 And He said unto them, Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.” Matthew 8:23-26
 
The Disciples who followed Jesus into the ship had to first deny themselves. Some where fisherman, some were doctors and others accountants but they had to first deny their intellectual abilities; their knowledge of the worldly system in order to pick up their cross (the ability to be called His Disciple) and follow Jesus.
 
Once they had done all of this, the storms began to rage causing them to depend on their intellectual abilities to survive the storm. This is where many Believers are today. We have laid our cross down and have decided to depend on instead of deny our abilities, intellect and talents.
 
Jesus is still in the boat but we haven’t called upon His Name as we maneuver through the storm. He’s patiently waiting; He’s watching for our hearts to turn back to Him. He and He alone can calm the storms. At Calvary, He laid waste death, hell and the grave. The penalty of sin was paid and the power of sin broken when Jesus Christ uttered the words “It is Finished”. The Born Again Believer has the Savior of the world in our boat. Call on Him.
 
“23 And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.
 
24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My sake, the same shall save it.” Luke 9:23-24
