I warn you now, this is not a feel good, sunshine and daisies kind of message. I’m no longer in the business of stroking egos and silencing the hard stuff so we can go blindly down our destructive paths. Time isn’t short friends, time is at hand! We are out of time so the truth no matter how painfully ugly, needs to be addressed now, not later, ready or not. The choice to hear it or not and the choice to accept it or not, well, that choice is yours. Trust me friends, I to am in dire need of the truth before it’s too late. I to have chose rose colored glasses pushing the cold hard truth aside into the I’ll get to it later pile. Later has arrived and just in the nick of time too.
People! Get right with God! There are no more reasons, no more excuses and no more pretense of ignorance. Jesus is coming for his bride, His church. There’s no time left. Listen! Stop and listen! You know the truth, at this very moment you hear it, or feel it. If we allow ourselves to hesitate, we open ourselves up for the devil’s lies to take root in our mind and heart. He is on the warpath, he has accelerated his speed and disguised himself as an angel of light. If we are not grounded in the word and equipped with the full body armor of Christ we will be deceived.
Ignorant humans! That’s what they; the devil, demons and fallen angels call us you know! Ignorant humans, so easily manipulated, so eager to believe anything that seems to justify their human nature and rebellion against God Almighty. They’ll believe anything. They’d rather be blind and powerless against us than to get scared by warnings about us. And just a simple stroke to their ego and they practically pave their own road to hell. This is one of the ways in which they, the devil, demons and fallen angels think of us. They hate us with a hate we can’t even comprehend. Even the tiniest shred of compassion or love, any kind of empathy towards mankind, they are completely void of. They want to see extreme suffering and pain in us at their hands. That is their form of “happy,” to inflict the worst imaginable pain upon us slowly, to get the full benefit of watching us suffer. They are real and they will stop at nothing to take us down. Revelation 12:12 For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.
Listen! The devil knows his fate is sealed. His goal is to spite God and sneak in attempting to take us, beloved of God, with him to share his fate. His plan is to cause as many of us as he can to harden our hearts and minds against God. He is the master of deception and lies, he manipulates our minds twisting and confusing right and wrong. He will give us all kinds of false evidence of our goodness and our righteousness apart from God. He will manipulate our emotions with signs of peace, equality and fairness for the entire world. He will turn us all against one another with his mind games, tricks and lies. All the signs and wonders he will perform will cause millions, maybe even billions of people to believe themselves as good. It won’t last because it is all lies and deceit from the master of deception, who has absolutely no authority to make such promises. He did not create this world or anything in it. He has no right or authority, still sadly most will believe his lies and follow him, assuredly sealing their fate as equal to his.
Please hear the truth! None of us are good not even one human being in the whole world. Mark 10:18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. We all sin against God and choose to ignore His commandments. We chose to have control, to be gods, of our own lives even after seeing the destruction and devastation we leave in the wake of our arrogant, self-righteous, and, egotistical, prideful, boasting and self-centered ways of ruling our own little worlds. We cause pain, shame and destruction yet instead of feeling remorse, we pass the blame onto someone else. Sometimes we even blame God for our foolishness. The truth is we seemingly like to go around with our false sense of authority, never really taking the time to get to know God, then we pass on our misguided assumptions of His truth about right and wrong. We have grown thick, deep, roots of lies within our hearts. Roots so deep we fully believe them to be truth. So strong is our belief, that we violently and ruthlessly battle against anyone or anything that may try to prove an error in our way of thinking or that try to breakdown our walls of illusion we so blindly and recklessly grew comfortably accustomed to.
Revelation 3:19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent.
I tell you the truth, if you are not over your head in struggle, hurt, pain and persecution then you’re not growing character and fruit. Pluck out the deceptive root of self righteousness and pride, understand true wisdom is in the one who is eagerly inviting self discipline and reproach. The one who knows those are the tools that bring forth enlightenment and change into our minds and hearts. Proverbs 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, But he who hates reproof is stupid. God is not in the business of self made martyrdom brought on mostly by the need to be accepted and a lack of faith in God. Also brought on by the spiritually lazy. Those who turn away from discipline and reproach. Those who believe themselves to be good or good enough. Those whose hearts are more about the respect and admiration of mankind than of accepting and understanding their true carnal nature. They become well versed in the ways of manipulation, praying on the empathy and hearts of those who are genuine and caring. It works so well for them at first, then once God enlightens their victims of the truth, they don’t understand why they are left behind. Why no one falls for their trickery. The same deception they themselves have decided to believe and even manifest into their own minds and hearts. They believe themselves to be martyrs and so they rebel against authority, against discipline, self control and against the truth. Their prayers are muddled with lies thinking to deceive God Himself by going on and on about their sorrows just trying to convince God of how bad it really is for them and why they deserve special attention from Him.
They see themselves as righteous as they’re taking on an attribute they have not suffered to obtain rightfully. Instead deciding they are what they are not. It is clear and evident to those who put their trust and faith in God because he reveals their true natures to those who walk in His righteousness through the accepting of Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior.
The righteousness of Christ does not need to proclaim itself for it cannot be denied. The actions of those operating in the righteousness of Christ speak for themselves.
The self righteous however, will endlessly talk of their good works and their importance. They talk of their self proclaimed selflessness, yet make their demands in the same breath. The question is always, what’s in it for them. They will go out of their way so long as they get something in return. They are always talking of fairness and equality, yet they live as though, they themselves, are above such. They mistake someone unwilling to dance on the devil’s playground by continuing to argue, as proof that they win or that they are right. They lack true wisdom and understanding obtained from the Holy Spirit for they grieve the Holy Spirit.
We need to search our hearts and hold every thought captive to the knowledge of Christ. We are out of time! Just as it is written, “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalms 139:23-24 we too must wholeheartedly cry out to Father God, repentant and truly seeking His right way to be manifest within us.
Then we should anticipate the troubles, hardships, burdens and flesh starving meant to give us opportunity to practice Christ-like behavior. By practice of Christ-like behavior while confronted with hardships and struggles, we gain character, wisdom and fruit (aka attributes) of His Spirit. His promise to us is peace through the struggle.
John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”
Philippians 4:6-7 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
Romans 5:3-4 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.
Friends expect trials struggles and troubles to come against you regularly. Refuse becoming victim of an anxious, worried, emotional response. Surrender every situation over to Jesus. In return He will bless you with the peace that passes understanding in every circumstance and situation and through every trial.
Put on the full armor of God, read your Bible in an effort to get to know God personally, pray for Him to renew your mind and heart to fit his purpose and plans and follow through as He guides the way.
