Salvation to Be revealed in the Last days part #3
3 Continuing where I left off last time this is continuing on the Salvation to be revealed in the last days. 1 John 3:13- Do not be surprised brethren if the world hates you. So we should not be surprised if the world hates you. The problem today is the world loves most of the Christian community because we are a lot like the world, but the world should hate us. So if the world loves you then maybe you have got a problem. So the world should hate us. John tells us not to be surprised if it does. You should be surprised if it loves you. 14- We know that we have passed out of death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. So the first thing here is, if you do not walk in love you abide in death. It does not matter if you speak in tongues, taught a Sunday school class for the last 20 years, pastured a church for the passed 10 years, or led a hundred thousand people to the Lord. It does not mean anything if you don’t have the love of God. 15- Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer. Now that is a very large statement right there. So many people out there may be thinking I do not hate my brother; I just do not like him too much. I don’t like the way he talks ; I don’t like the way he looks; I don’t like the way he combs his hair. I don’t like this and I don’t like that. I don’t hate him; I just don’t like him. Okay then we are going to define the biblical definition of hate in the bible. 15- and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Isn’t that amazing! If you hate your brother you are a murderer. It does not matter whether you shot him, stabbed him, or anything you are a murderer. You may say, man! I don’t like that! Well this is the Bible or gospel according to 1 John. John spent a lot of time one on one with Jesus. You think he might have a real good idea what the gospel was. I would think John would have a real good grasp on what the true message of the gospel was. So if we listened to John we could understand a lot. His source was Jesus in the flesh. His message of salvation was taught to him directly by Jesus. So John says no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. Well you say I said the prayer; I walked the aisle; I got baptized; I tithe, I teach children’s choir, but I hate this brother. I hate my ex-wife; I hate my ex-husband. The Bible says you are a murderer then. You say I don’t want to hear that. Guys I am sorry this is the gospel. 16- We know love by this, that He laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. The way you love is it cost you to love somebody. The devil tries to get you to hate everybody. Anybody who does you wrong he wants you to get angry and in hatred to your brother. It will cost you not to hate. It will cost you to love. It cost you something. It cost Jesus to love us. It is going to cost you to love your neighbor. It is going to cost you to love your brother, because people are going to do things to you that you do not like. The question is how are you going to respond back. It is heaven or hell depending on how you respond. Well you say I have never heard salvation taught this way. Well guys this is the salvation of the Bible. 17- But whoever has the worlds goods, and beholds his brother’s need, and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him. In other words you can say I love you man, I love you man, but if you do not do it. It is not love. It is easy to say the words, but if you close your heart against someone who has need then you are not walking in love. How many times do we see someone who is in need and we close our heart against them. Have you ever had that person you saw was in need, but you thought oh I don’t know, and you shut your heart against them, and you close your heart off. I guarantee you guys out there reading this know what I am talking about. 18- Little children let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.
So now then he says if you hate your brother, you’re a murderer. Well what does it mean to hate? You say well I don’t hate my brother; I am just not really fond of him and I don’t like him, but I don’t hate him. Okay then let us look at the Biblical definition of hate is. Do you know what the Biblical definition of hate is? Many of you guys have never been taught this. As a matter of fact you can go back to the Webster’s 1813 dictionary you will find the Biblical definition of hate is. This is what I am about to show you out of your Bible. Now we think of hatred as like man I want to hurt somebody; I want to hit them in the face; ;I want to divorce them, or I want to do something bad to them. Okay I am going to use the Bible like we have been doing all along to define the terms. Turn to Luke 14:25- Now large crowds were going along with Him, now hat’s Jesus, and He turned to them and said. Now one thing you will notice all about Jesus when you read the four gospels is hat Jesus had a pretty good way of thinning out the crowd when it started to get to big, but today everybody wants to make the crowds as big as possible. It is exactly opposite as to how Jesus did things, and as soon as Jesus would get a big crowd following Him; He would say something that would thin the crowd out. His idea of church and our idea of church was completely different. He did not do it our way. He always did it differently. As soon as the crowd got big: he would say we have got too many people, let us find out who is really serious, and that is exactly what God is going to do in the last days again. He is going to find out how serious you are about going on with Jesus. You are about to see the seriousness of God like you have never seen before. Things are getting ready to happen. The world is going to be a stage to reveal the seriousness of God about dealing with disobedience and the powers of darkness. So this message is a very important message for the last days. 26- If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he can not be my disciple. Now has anyone of you ever read this verse and wondered what on earth was Jesus talking about right here? He is saying you have got to hate your father and mother. Well I thought you where suppose to honor your father and mother? I thought you where suppose to love your wife and children? Isn’t that what it says? So is Jesus a liar here? Obviously we do not know what hate means then do we. We have not been taught the Biblical definition of hate. This is the problem. This is why we do not understand the Bible sometimes when we are reading it. It makes it sound confusing and contradictory. So Jesus is making a statement right here if you don’t hate your own life, your mother, your father, your wife, your children, your brothers, and your sisters then you can not be my disciple. You can not be a disciple of Jesus and you say man, I do not like that kind of gospel. Well guys that is in the red. So you go what on earth does that mean. Do you want to know what that means? Let’s go on! 27- Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me can not be my disciple. So here are two things to become a disciple. You have to hate everybody else and you have to carry your cross. What does the cross represent? It represents death! Turn to Matthew 10:34. This is why you have to read the whole body to understand what He is saying. So is that last verse confusing to you right now? It could be very confusing if you did not know the word right now. So lets look at the word of God because remember how I have said the Bible will interpret itself. That is why you have to study the whole word. 34- Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. I thought Jesus was the prince of peace? Jesus said I came to bring a sword. 35- I came to set a man against His father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. Have you ever heard of any daughter-in-laws being against their mother-in-laws? How about daughters against their mothers? You guys no what I am talking about don’t you? 36- A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household. Hey I know what he is talking about right here! I know for the passed 12 years I have experienced a lot of this first hand. 37- He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. He is saying things a little bit different here than He said back in Luke. Back in Luke He said you had to hate your father and mother or brother and sister, but here he says if you love your father or mother more than me then you are not worthy of me. If you love son or daughter more than you love God. Look guys I am going to tell you this. Many people are going to miss God because they love their children or their parents more than they God. It is going to be a real sad deal when a lot of people spend an eternity in hell because they love their family more than they love God, or they love their husband or their wife more than they love God.38- He who does not take up his cross and follow after Me is not worthy Me. So what is he saying here? Here is the biblical definition of Hate. To hate means you love less than. That is what it means. In other words, you have to love your father or mother less than you love Me. That is what hate means. That is why you have to hate your father and mother. That is why He says here if you love them more then you hate God. Do you see what I am saying? Has any one ever taught this to you before. This is the Biblical definition of hate which is to love less than. If you love somebody more than you love somebody else then you hate the other person. In other words that is why Jess tells us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves because if you do not then you hate them! You go O my goodness I do not like this gospel. This is the only gospel that will get you to heaven! I am sorry guys, but I do not know how else to put it. This why the church is powerless today. That is why you lay hands on people and they die and do not get healed. That why you lay hands on people to cast out the devil and the devil runs right over you because you are not walking this way. When you obey this truth right here then the power of God comes on you and you begin to pray and see things happen. You begin to see people get delivered and see people healed, but until you start walking this way you won’t see it. This the gospel. So one more time before we move on, the definition of hate is to love less than.
Turn to Psalms 81:15 Those who hate the Lord pretend obedience to Him; and their time of punishment is forever. Here is the deal about hating the Lord. When you pretend to obey the Lord. When you come to church and you say I am a Christian and I do this or I do that, and then you go home and do other things. You are pretending obedience to the Lord. You are a pretender, and it says you hate the Lord. Pretenders hate the Lord and they go to hell. If you are a employer or boss have you ever had a employee pretend to do what you say and then you find out later that they don’t. The Bible says they hate you. I have been in operations management most of my adult life and I have seen this from time to time with employees. A lot of times because they do not respect authority and prefer to be their own boss. They do not want to be told what to do. It is the same thing here. People says oh God love’s me and he won’t care if I go over here and do this little thing. He still loves me. That is a pretender and they hate the Lord and they do not realize it is going to send them to hell. You say man that is serious. The modern day church has no idea what seriousness is and God is about to bring a seriousness against the church that will cause you to turn whole heartedly to the Lord, or it will turn you completely away from the Lord. Revelation 18 is addressing the church of harlotry which is a church of pretenders. They are going to be destroyed prior to the final judgment of the world and they will be destroyed because of lack of knowledge. God is about to bring a seriousness to the body of Christ like we have never seen before. That is why judgment starts with the house hold of God. I do not have time to show you tonight, but eventually I want to take you step by step and show the spirit of harlotry that has invaded the church of God and has masqueraded itself as the Holy Spirit and is going to take the majority of professing Christians to hell and they think they are serving the Holy Spirit. It is in pastors, preachers, teachers, prophets, and evangelist and my father and I see it every where we go. Most church pastors won’t even allow us onto heir property because of the golden calf they have built. They don’t want anybody to mess with their precious religious system that is sending member after member on a collision course with hell and they all think they are going to be welcomed right through the pearly gates. The churches that have welcomed us have seen revival come and the power of God fall as people begin to weep, repent, and cry out to God in forgiveness. It breaks my heart because the sheep will become like their teacher. There are so many people who are not getting the chance to hear the real gospel because they are being held in bondage to a religious system or tradition of men that is no more Godly than the Pharisees or teachers of the Law where in Jesus day. There is no difference. If anything it has only become worse over 2000 years. Back in Jesus day they at least knew, for the most part, God’s law, and tried to keep it, but because of their religious pride they thought they knew enough to escape the judgment of the unbeliever. Today for the most part. The churches of today do not even have a clue about God’s perfect law of love, and again because of religious pride, spirit of harlotry, they do not feel the need to learn God’s law, and that they like the Pharisees know enough to escape the judgment and it is a total lie and it comes straight from the pits of hell. If you are not ready to go down this road ahead then you guys are going to have a lot of trouble. Guys I am just warning you, but the end time harvest is about to take place and God is looking for purity in His church and if you do not qualify in that category you are going to be gathered up with the tares and burned with fire. Wheat, tares, sheep, and goats are all adjectives used to describe God’s church. So are you a sheep or a goat? Are you wheat or a tare?
Mathew 6:24- You can’t serve two masters. Here is the problem with the church. Let me ask you this. Have you ever worked for a company and you had two bosses giving you direction and there where times they contradicted one another and so they where in opposition with one another? One boss would tell you one thing then another boss would tell you something different and then other boss would come along and wonder why you where not listening to his instruction. Did you ever want to hurt one of them or both of them? Have you ever had two people trying to tell you what to do at the same time, and they are telling you two different things? Do you know what I am talking about? Is it confusing when that happens to you? Does it get you upset? 24- No one can serve two masters. That means no one! Not anybody in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Australia, China, or Russia. Well, I know one person out there is thinking, I can. I can do it!. No you can’t! Otherwise you are calling Jesus a liar. You can not have two masters. You can not be your own boss and have Jesus as your boss. It is completely impossible. No way! You may be thinking man I don’t like this I am ready to read about something else like someone’s testimony of how God has set them free and blessed their socks off of them to boot! Listen guys if you will just hear what I am saying here, because some of you need to hear this. Some of you have never heard this, and some of you wonder why my life is miserable and why I do not feel like God loves me and why like nobody cares. It is because you have two masters. You can not serve two masters, there is no way. 24- because you will either hate the one and love the other. You can not love them the same. That is why I showed you that hate Biblically means to love less than, and that is what is going to happen. That is why it says you will either hate the one and love the other or despise the one and hold fast to the other. You can not love two masters the same because two masters are going to tell you two different things. So who do you love? 24- he will hate the one and love the other, or he will hold to one and despise the other. You can not serve God and money. You may say wow I love money. Well you can not serve God and money. America love’s money. Peoples God or security in money is coming down. It may not be much longer and the dollar in America may be devalued. God is about to tear down peoples gods. God said have no other gods before me and He is serious. America and American churches serve a god of money. You can not serve both. We have made the gospel in this country of no effect because we have watered it down to serve our fleshly desires and God is looking for a voice today to speak the truth and challenge the harlotry and the preachers of harlotry. A voce that will speak what God says, and is unaffected by what other people think. This is a decision I had to make many years ago and others are going to have to make this same decision in order to survive the days that are coming. Look guys! Most of you that have read my blogs know that I honestly do not care what anybody else thinks of me. I had to get to that place before God could use me and start giving me the gospel. Otherwise, I would have bowed down to other peoples wants or desires instead of God’s desires. God is desiring a pure and spotless bride. Are you going to be that bride? You better start taking a stand! Because this is the truth of the gospel and this is Salvation. If you are not pursuing sanctification by the Spirit with everything you have got; then guys I am telling you, are on dangerous ground. You absolutely can not serve God and wealth. That statement alone probably condemns most professing Christian’s in America alone to a sentence of hell. We have bought into the American dream and the mind set that God does not want you to have to suffer in this lifetime and wants you to be at ease in Zion.
Turn to Luke 16:13 – No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to one, and despise the other, you can serve God and wealth. That is two times now Jesus has addressed this. Here is what happens when you try to serve two masters. You will hate the Lord, because you will pretend obedience to Him. Remember in Psalms 81:15- Those that hate the Lord pretend obedience to Him. You can not go around and say I love the Lord but I am going to serve alcohol. I am going to serve adultery, fornication, or anger. You can not do it and serve the Lord also. It is impossible. People do not want to hear this message and a lot of preachers will not preach this message because they will lose all of their people. You know what Jesus said when the crowds came? You can not be my disciple if you are going to walk in disobedience to my words. Don’t even try to call me Lord if you are going to try and walk both ways and if you do then your time of punishment will be forever. Jesus was serious. He would have rather had two disciples that loved Him then two million that did not really love Him. Would you rather be married to someone who loves you or someone who hates your guts. Who do you think Jesus wants to marry? Do you want to marry somebody who loves someone else? Do you want to marry someone who loves something else more than they love you? Who wants that? Do you think Jesus wants it? We are going to be His bride aren’t we? Do you think He is going to come back for a harlot? When you are trying to serve two masters you are double minded and you can not serve God and something else. This is why the gospel will not work in most peoples lives. This is why you will pray and your prayers will not get answered. This is why you don’t feel the presence of God and know the presence of God, because you are serving two masters an God says you hate Me. You can not love two masters or two wives at the same time. You will always love one more than the other. As a matter of fact, Moses led approximately two million Jews out of bondage and slavery to Egypt to the land that God had promised them. Do you know how many of the original group actually made it to the promise land? There was a grand total of two, Joshua and Caleb. He killed everyone else because of their hard hearts and rebellion in the wilderness. Then Jesus tells us the last days are going to be exactly like the days of Noah and how many Did God spare when He destroyed the earth in the days of Noah? Eight people made it!
Brothers and sisters I want to define the law and the prophets, because people tell me all the time well God made a new covenant and made a completely different set of Rules when He sent His Son to die on the cross for us. He is more tolerable of sinners now and because of the death of Christ His blood cleanses us now. I just want to shake them back to reality. Where on earth is that in the Bible? It’s not there! So lets define the law and the prophets. Turn to Matthew 7:12. When you start to put all of these scriptures together then pretty soon you will see what the gospel really is. Watch this! 12- In everything therefore, however you want people to treat you, so treat them, for this is the law and the prophets. The law of God has not been done away with guys. So the way you want to be treated you are suppose to treat every body else. Turn to Matthew 22:34. Now this is the religious people trying to come to Jesus and catch Him. 34- When the Pharisees heard that He had put the Sadducees to silence, they gathered themselves together. 35- And one of them a lawyer (meaning he was skilled in the law of Moses) asked Him a question testing Him, 36- Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? These religious spirits where always trying to test Jesus. 37- And He said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. 38- This is the great and foremost commandment. 39- The second is just like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40- On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets. Okay so the whole law of the Old Testament and the Prophets is two love God with all your heart and your neighbor a yourself. That is what the entire Bible is all about. The entire Law and the Prophets is summed up in these two commandments. Everything you see in this Bible is going to lead you to love the Lord with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself. So are you suppose to keep the law then? Are you? Yes you are, because this will lead you to love the Lord with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself. Now then here is the problem. If you hate yourself then this is what is going to happen. You will hate everyone else and you will hate God. I deal with so many Christians who are struggling with self hatred, and however you love yourself is how you are going to love everyone else. If you hate yourself and have, rejection, self hatred, bitterness, and suicide and all that then you will hate everyone else because you will love your neighbor the way you love yourself. So you know what the devil does? He starts out when your young, as a child, and he makes you feel rejected, abused, and the next thing you know you feel worthless and you hate yourself. This is the problem in the marriages today. Then you will not love anyone else, and the Bible says how can you love God whom you have not seen and hate your brother whom you have seen. So once the devil can get you to hate yourself then you are separated on all three levels of law. You can not love yourself, you can not love your neighbor, and you can not love God. You will love God the way you love your neighbor. I have heard people say well I love God, but I hate my neighbor. No you don’t. That is impossible. Your relationship with God can not be right if your relationships on earth are messed up. God wants us to deal with this issue. For those of you who do not know I deal in deliverance. I deal with spirits of anger, molestation, bitterness, suicide, and all types of demonic spirits. Most all of this deals with self hatred and unloving spirits. The majority of all issues I deal with are rooted in this, self hatred or unloving spirits. When people deal with these issues then you will see Jesus step in and begin to deliver and set these people free, but never until they address and deal with these issues in their life.
Turn to Mark 12:28. Isn’t it amazing how we skip over all these verses I have been reading from. It is so easy for us to dismiss or skip over these verses. 28- One of the scribes came and heard them arguing and recognizing that he had answered them well, asked Him, What commandment is the greatest of all? 29- Jesus answered, The foremost is, Hear O Israel! The Lord our God is one Lord; 30- And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. 31- The second is this, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these. Well you say I do all these things, I do this; I do that; I tithe; I give; I go to church; I witness; but Jesus says this s it right here! If you are not doing this right here then you have missed it. So here is what the devil wants to do. If he can get you to break this commandment right here then you break all of them. 32- And the scribe answered and said right teacher, you have truly stated that He is One; and there is no else besides Him; 33- And to love Him with all your heart and with all your understanding and with all your strength, and to love one’s neighbor as himself, is much more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices. Now watch this! 34- And when Jesus saw that he had answered intelligently He said to Him, You are not far from the kingdom of God. He said you are not far. He did not say you where in it did he? You know how far he was from the kingdom of God? He was about 18 inches. He knew the right answer, but was he doing it and did he have it in his heart. Jesus told him he was real close but he was not there. He knew it in his head, but it still needed to travel 18 inches to his heart. Isn’t that amazing? This is the salvation that has not been taught. This is the salvation that will change your life once you understand this. It will totally transform your life. Self hatred is one root that will keep people from loving other people. If you have self hatred operating in your life you better get rid of it. You need to seek the Lord with all your heart, and you need to deal with that thing or you will never fulfill the law of God if you have self hatred. It is a big deal.
Well Guys I am going to stop here hopefully everyone still loves me, but regardless I love you all.
