Salvation to be Revealed in the Last Days! #5
You have made it this far wow! Hopefully none of this has bored you. and I certainly hope you have gotten something out of it. May the Lord bless you all the days of your life!
Turn to Matthew 5:8- Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God. Who sees God? Only the pure in heart will see God. You say well man I do not know if my heart is really pure? That is where you have got to get to. God wants to purify your heart. You say well is that a necessity or is that optional? I want to know what my options are? Option 1,2,3 or 4! Please tell me what my options are! I am about to prove to you this is not optional. Turn to Hebrews 12:14- Pursue peace with all men, and the sanctification without which no one will see the Lord. Does that say you will not see the Lord unless you have sanctification. You can see the Lord unless you have a pure heart. Sanctification and a pure heart are the same thing. That is what a pure heart is. So what does God want to do? He wants to purify your heart. That is called sanctification because you are suppose to love the Lord with how much of your heart? All your heart, you can not love the Lord with all your heart until your heart is purified through the sanctification process. Sanctification is a process and that is how you get to see the Lord. This makes it a little more to it than to just say the prayer. There is nothing wrong with saying the prayer but there is a little more to it. This is why you need to eat all of the word and not just the parts that fit into your religious doctrine. You say well I have never herd anybody teach this. Listen you are seeing this in the word. I am really just reading the word to you and letting the word say what it says. I am not giving my opinion. Turn to 2 Thessalonians 2:13. Now brothers and sisters you need to listen to this.13- But we should always give thanks to God for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God has chosen you from the beginning for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and faith in the truth. Well I thought it just took faith? It is not what that says. Do you see what I am saying? You have to put it all together guys before you get the whole message. This is why people are in trouble today. He chose you for salvation how? Through sanctification by the Spirit, not by the law, not by rules, but by the Spirit. Have you ever done something or where about to do something and heard don’t do that; do this? Do you know what I am talking about? Guess who that is? The Spirit of God, and when you ignore Him you grieve the Holy Spirit. That grieves the Holy Spirit. It is like parents when they tell their child not to do something because they know it is bad for them. Then your child goes and does it anyway and it grieves you. When the Spirit of God tells you to do something because He knows it is good for you and you do not listen it then grieves the Holy Spirit. That is why people go around often in sadness and depression because they grieve the Holy Spirit. When Spirit of God gets grieved it often will leave you saddened and depressed. Sadness in the heart breaks the spirit. Grieving the Holy Spirit is a very bad deal guys and gals. Now blaspheming the Holy Spirit is a different deal and I have a whole teaching on that I may do sometime later but it is closely related to grieving the Holy Spirit. Remember when God says do not be drunk with wine but be filled with the spirit.
Well you may have been taught that we are righteous because we believe. Okay lets look at it in the Bible. Turn to 1 John 2:29. Now you have to remember that Satan is very deceptive, and he takes the word and twist it just enough to get you off track. He did it to Eve in the garden. He tried to do it to Jesus in the wilderness. What do you think he is going to try and do with you? If he did it with Jesus and he was that arrogant to try and do that to Jesus then what do you think he is going to do with little old you and little old me. Brother he is going to come at you with everything he has got to deceive you. That is the way he works. Now 1 John 2:29- If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practice righteousness is born of Him. Who is born of God? The one who practices righteousness. Now look at 1 John 3:7-12- Little children, let no one deceive you. Make sure no one, not even one person deceives you . Now he is telling you the truth about how you can be deceived in this area. Right here 7- The one who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. Not the on who hears or believes but the one who practices righteousness is righteous. Well you say I did not know I was suppose to do all of that. You mean I have to do this stuff? Jesus wrote this so I have to do it? I thought I just had to believe it? Let someone else do it. The one who practices righteousness is righteous 8- The one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning; the Son of God appeared for this purpose, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9- No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he can not sin, because he is born of God. Does God expect us to deal with the sin and junk in our lives? You better deal with it! We have been taught that we do not have to deal with it. I am telling you that you have to deal with it.
Okay guys I am apologizing ahead of time, but I am going to go off for a moment and address the mother of all harlots for a moment, which I believe with all my heart is the American Corporate Church. When you met Jesus for the first time you where carrying around the powers of darkness that owned you because of the curse of sin in your life. The powers of darkness don’t cower away and jump off you when you enter a religious institution. They go right into that church with you because it is like a great big family reunion for them. They get to see all of their demonic friends that are tormenting and enslaving everyone else in the building, because almost all of the churches are teaching a worthless salvation message that is a total lie and does not address the demonic stronghold operating in peoples lives to begin with. As a matter of fact if you want to find the largest concentration of demons in the world just go to your local church. It is one of their favorite hang outs. Why did Jesus call the Pharisees a brood of vipers? Think about it guys. 2000 years ago the teachers of the law often times could quote the first five books of the Bible and still most of them went to hell. Most Pastors, preachers, and teachers God’s word today could not even quote five chapters out of the bible. Think about that guys! For the most part guys; the pastors, prophets, teachers, and evangelist of today are in much more pitiful spiritual condition than the religious leaders 2000 years ago. So if most of the spiritual or religious leaders of Jesus day went to hell where do you think most of the spiritual and religious leaders of today are going to go when they die? Think about it! The Bible warns us that things are going to get so bad spiritually in the last days that even the elect could be deceived. It is already happening all over the world, but in America for the most part the churches are total abomination to God. The people hanging out at the bars and the houses of prostitution have a better chance of hearing the truth than those hanging out in the churches that have traded their Glory for the image of a beast that says you can serve Jesus and you can serve your fleshly desires to. They are basically telling believers that it is okay to be a whore and a prostitute; God understands. Turn to Revelation 17:3- And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, (I am thinking about a golden calf the Jews worshiped in wilderness on their way to the promise land), full of blasphemous names, (I am thinking of demon nations, oops! I met denominations) having seven heads and tens horns. 4- And the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality. I wonder if that gold cup signifies and represents the religious creeds and doctrines of the denominations, that all basically tell their sheep that they can drink from the cup of the lord and the cup of fleshly lust (demons) and not suffer eternal death. 5- and upon her forehead a name (possibly the mark of the beast) was written, a mystery, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Now watch this guys! 6- And I saw the woman drunk on the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. And when I saw her, I wondered greatly. Is the blood, this woman is drunk on, talking about believers she has martyred or deceived? I say deceived. This is why. When we come to Christ, we are suppose to become a new creation where old things are passed away and all things become new. What then becomes our food as a new creation becoming part of the kingdom of God. Our bread or food is Jesus and we know in John 1 that Jesus is the word and the word became flesh, so our bread is the word of God because that is Jesus. The blood signifies the Holy Spirit whom Jesus leaves with us as our helper to teach us Jesus ways as well as how to put to death the deeds of the flesh. If we eat Jesus and drink Jesus then we become Jesus because you are what you eat. Now if there is a broad path salvation message that leads to destruction and this harlot is trying to trick saints or believers into taking this path to heaven. Then we are not going to overcome and put to death the deeds of the flesh which means we are still enslaved by sin. We are not conformed to the image and likeness of Jesus but become foolish virgins instead. Instead of loving the Lord with all our heart we love ourselves more. Instead of laying down our lives for our neighbor we put our neighbor down to lift ourselves up. That means your are not loving your neighbor as yourself, and when you love yourself more than you love your neighbor; that means you hate your neighbor. Jesus said when you are angry at or hate your neighbor that is the same as murder. We know that when we murder someone with our thoughts, tongue or by deed of anger we are shedding innocent blood. Then we know that God’s law says blood for blood therefore by deception the harlot is drunk on the blood of the saints because she now has a right to your blood because you have become defiled and have gotten into agreement with the harlot or spirit of harlotry.
Now guys turn to James 2:14. This where you are going to see the scripture that whoever believes in Him is righteous. Now watch this. Now I am going to explain to you how this works. Now remember Abraham is the father of faith? Did he do everything right? No. He was a liar. He did not believe God on some things, but he was the father of faith. It was not how Abraham started out, but you have to look at how he ended up. You can not look at how he began but you have to look at the end. It is a process. Those that endure to the end will be saved. 14- what use is it my brethren, if a man says he has faith, but he has no works? I got faith brother I believe. The devil can not harm me because I am a believer. Can that faith save him? 15- If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily, 16- And one says to them, Go in peace, be warmed and be filled, and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that? He said man if you just pray and you just say these things, believe these things, and you have faith but you don’t do anything, what’s it worth? It’s worthless! If someone comes to you and they have a need and you don’t do anything, but you say I will pray for you brother. I know you need a burger. I pray that works out for you. You get tested everyday. You can have faith and you can have love, but if you do not take care of the needs as they arise with your brothers then what good is your faith and what good is your love. I love you brother; I have to go now, but I will pray for you. You know how many times that happens to each and everyone of us, and we miss it. We have to quit looking out after ourselves so much and get our eyes and ears open to the needs of others. 17- Even so faith, if it has no works, is dead, being by itself. 18 But someone may say to you, you have faith, and I have works; show me your faith and I will show you my faith by my works.19- You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe and shudder. You believe in God, you believe He is one, you believe He is real, big deal! That is not salvation. The devil’s believe that. They know that! Now watch this; 21- Was not Abraham our father justified by works. Now we are not talking about doing all these good things so God will accept you. That is not what I am talking about guys. You need to get the picture and see the difference. The works here that Abraham did look at verse 20- But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is useless? 21- Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? How did Abraham get justified? He was justified when he put Isaac on the altar, not before. Go read the story when God came down and said now I know you fear me Abraham. So Abraham was justified by his works. The works was based on his faith, not on some legalistic approach. You got to know something when you willingly offer up you son on the altar. That was the proof of his faith. Your faith without proof means nothing. What is going to happen if the day comes and they come and say we are going to take your child unless you bow down. You say well Lord I believe, but I am not going to do this. I am going to take your husband or I am going to take your wife if you do not bow down and take the mark or something like that. You see faith with out works is dead. You see faith was working with his works and as a result; his faith was perfected. Remember Jesus says if you love me you will keep my commandments. 23- And the scripture was fulfilled which says, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness, and he was called a friend of God. So he believed God and it was reckoned to him as righteousness when he chose to obey what God had commanded him. Now did it say Abraham was righteous? No, but he was treated as if he was righteous by God. So as we really begin to believe God and start walking in it; there are things that are not right with all of us, but God will treat you like everything is good as long as you are walking in obedience. It was reckoned to him as righteousness, but it did not get fulfilled until he put his son on the altar, because he who practices righteousness is righteous. So god is expecting us to walk in this obedience. 24- You see that a man is justified by works, and not faith alone. Now how many of you, reading this right now, have been taught that you are justified by faith alone? What did these scriptures just say. Now somebody is lying if you have been taught you are justified by faith alone. Now everything we have read has proved you are justified by your works and your faith, but not your faith alone. Your faith is proven by your works. Otherwise you do not have it, and the faith you do have will not save you, and that is what God is trying to tell us right now. Look guys if you really believe God then you are going to do what He says. Does that mean you are not going to mess up? No! Everybody messes up. I like to use the analogy of Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning is recognized by many people of being a very good and potential hall of fame quarterback. He practices for hours and hours throwing completed passes and touchdowns. When he gets in a real game situation, all his practice, helps him perform at his very best in a actual game. Does Peyton Manning ever throw a interception. Absolutely! He just does not practice throwing interceptions. Everyone will sin and mess up. If you say you have no sin then you lie an the truth is not in you, but what you do is repent. You keep going until you get it right. Do you hear what I am saying? We are not there yet. You are suppose to work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Okay people, I hope this helping somebody. Some of you may be learning things you did not want to know.
Here is a fundamental Biblical truth about salvation. Obedience is not optional. I hope with all the scriptures I have covered this should become very clear to you. But my doctrine teaches me that obedience is optional and all my friends believe the same way I do. You might want to get away from your doctrine as fast as possible and unfortunately you may have to separate from some of or possibly all of your friends, because obedience is not optional. If you want to see eternal life you have to walk in obedience to God’s word. All of it! Now then I want to show you how this works. We have to die to the desires of the flesh in order to do the will of God. Remember when it said that Jesus learned obedience through suffering? You know how you are going to learn obedience? Let me tell you what. When you obey God it hurts. When you have to go somebody and say please forgive me even though I am wrong or even though you are wrong. You ever had to do that? Does it cause you to suffer a little bit? Did Jesus suffer when He did not do wrong? He did didn’t he? He did know wrong and suffered like he was a criminal. He was mocked and ridiculed long before He ever went to the cross. He was treated like the scum of the earth. Turn to 1 Peter 4:1 Therefore since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose. You have to put on he armor of God so you can suffer in the flesh. because he who has suffered in the flesh, has ceased from sin. You can not quit the sin until you die to the flesh. You will never do it. I have had to do things, when God first started to teach me what it meant to eat His flesh and drink His blood, that made me look really bad to a lot of people I had to go and repent to. I had to repent to my wife, my kids, my parents, my mother n law, my sisters, my brother n law. It hurt guys. It hurt really bad. It still hurts. The Holy Spirit will bring to mind something from time to time that I had done and that I need to go ask forgiveness and it really hurts. That is called humbling yourself. I was like Lord please don’t make me go do that. Please don’t make me say that. I am going to look really stupid. They are going to think I am a idiot or a nut. But I had to get to the point where it was not what my flesh wanted, but what the Spirit was leading me to do. I had to suffer in the flesh. Now here is the way it works. Turn to Romans 8:12. Look people if you will hear this it will change your life. 12- So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. In other words you have to suffer in the flesh. You can not obey the flesh. Guys you have to quit living according to the flesh. Some of you are watching things and hearing, and seeing things that are killing you. It will kill you and destroy you. Some of you need to repent. You have to stop doing it. That is dying to the flesh right there. 13- For if you live according to the flesh then you are going to die. That is talking about eternal or spiritual death right here. But if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body you will live. In other words, the Spirit of God leads each one of us, to put to death all those things that we should not be doing. Anger, bitterness, critical spirit, judging others, strife, jealousy, and I could go on and on. The Spirit will lead you to die to your fleshly wants and desires so you will live. That is eternal life! 14- For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the son’s of God. Who is a son of God? A son of God is someone being led by His Spirit. What does His Spirit lead you to do? If by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body you will live. What does being led by the Spirit mean? It does not mean you speak in tongues. I speak in tongues but that is not being led by the Spirit. Being led by the Spirit means you put to death the deeds of the flesh. That is what being led by the Spirit is. That is what leads to eternal life. These are the sons of God. Why are you a son of God? Because you are putting to death the deeds of the flesh. That was 1 Peter 4:1-2. Do you see what I am saying. This is the way this works.
Now then Galatians 5:16. This might make you want to go throw up or something. 15- But I say walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. That is being led by the Spirit. You will kill the flesh when you are led by the Spirit. If you are not led by the Spirit you will not de to the flesh. 17- For the flesh sets it’s desire against the Spirit. Has your flesh ever not wanted to do something the Spirit is leading you to do. The flesh has a desire of its own. And the Spirit is against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another. In other words you can not serve two masters can you? We have already covered that haven’t we. You can not serve the flesh and the Spirit. For these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things you please. 18- But if you are led by the Spirit you are not under the law. Here is the way you get out from underneath the judgment of the law. When you disobey the law you are under judgment. Then judgment comes on you. It opens he door for the demonic and boom, boom, boom. Romans 8 says if you are led by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the flesh. That is how you keep from being under the law. The only way you keep from being under the judgment of the law is to be led by the Spirit to put to death the flesh then you are from under the law. The law has no jurisdiction over you because you are doing the right thing. So you are not under it. Brother if you are not led by the Spirit you will be under the law, and you will be boom, boom, boom. Judgment comes because you are under the judgment of the law. This is how you get out from underneath it by being led by the Spirit. You put to death the flesh then no more judgment. Judgment comes off of you. Now lets look at some of the deeds of the flesh and see if any of these might be evident in your life.19- Now then the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20- idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outburst of anger, outburst of anger, outburst of, sorry I already said that, outburst of anger, Has anybody reading this ever had a outburst of anger. Have you ever had anger just jump up out of nowhere and you go where did that devil come from? Just maybe it might have set up residence in your heart. Outburst of anger, disputes, dissentions, factions (which means division), 21- envying, drunkenness, , carousing, and things like these, of which I for warn you just as I have for warned you that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Those who practice, practice, practice will not go to heaven! If you practice those things you don’t get the kingdom of God. But he who practices righteousness is righteous. Righteousness is part of the kingdom of God. You practice these things then you are not walking in righteousness then you do not inherit the kingdom of God. What does that mean? You are going to hell! You are going to hell! And you are going to hell!. You do not get to pass go; you do not get to collect $200; you go straight to jail and hell. That is exactly what that means.
Guys I have done all of this stuff I have been talking about. I did not always preach the word of God. I have done all the bad stuff and got thrown into jail both physically and spiritually. Look I was a worthless sorry individual before Jesus got a hold of me. I can not throw any stones ,but I do have to warn you brothers and sisters; if you are practicing any of those things I just read out of Galatians you need to repent and quit it guys. Remember the rich young ruler who came to Jesus and asked what he needed to do to be saved. The rich young ruler told Jesus he had kept all of the commandments. All of them! Jesus said speak correctly but there is one more thing you have not done. You see he had a little coveting issue. As a matter of fact it was so bad Jesus told him to go sell everything he had and then go give the money to the poor and then come and follow Jesus. It says the rich young ruler went away very sad because he was not willing to do this one thing. How many out there reading this have a coveting issue, or anger issue, or bitterness or whatever. You have to deal with it! You have to put that to death. Otherwise you are trying to serve two masters, and you are a foolish virgin.
Galatians 5:22- But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23- gentleness, self control; against such things there is no law. In other words. When you do this there is no law because this gets you out from under the law. That is how you get out from under it. Now verse 24 is probably one of the hardest scriptures for me. 24- Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with it’s passions and desires. Are we all there yet? That is where we have got to get. We have to die. That is what God wants; then He will raise you from the dead. Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac because He had a promise that all of his descendants would come through Isaac meaning that if he put Isaac on the altar and he died. Then God would have to raise Isaac from the dead. That is salvation. When you die you have got to believe God is going to raise you from the dead. Then He becomes your savior. Otherwise you will try and save your own life, and you will lose it. Is anybody learning anything? Does anybody want to get saved?
Well now that I have finished with this one we will see if Michael revokes my blog privileges. If not we will see how much evryone can take on double minded.
God bless you all
