Read :-Matthew chapters 5, 6, & 7: ( these are the Sayings of Jesus).
Matthew 7:24-27. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock(the Word of God )
And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. There is an ever increasing flood of spiritual deception by every wind of doctrine raining down on earth from Satan since the days of Martin Luther. It is becoming a whirlwind of destruction on the lives of those engaged in a multitude of spiritual activity which is removing them from the one and only true God who does not want religion. Read Ezekiel 28:12-19 carefully. Satan is the author of ALL religion, and most of the music industry, secular and religious. Remember…God’s people are few in number, not many.
Matthew 7:13-14. Enter ye in at the strait gate(that means restrictive): for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way(restricted by the Word), which leadeth unto life(John 6:63), and few there be that find it(John 6:66 – the origin of the mark of the beast ..From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Simply put, they could not live by every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God(Matt.4:4), nor could they drink the cup of suffering , even unto the death(Matt.16:24-25; Matt.26:42), as Jesus had done for us.
1Peter 4:1-2. Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin; That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
2Timothy 2:11-13. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer we shall also reign with him: if we deny him(no suffering), he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful(to his word), he cannot deny himself(he is the word). And the word saith :-
2Timothy 3:12. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
It is necessary to spend quality time in your own closet with your Father which is in heaven(Matt.6:5-14). Bring your King James bible with you(it is the Word of God), and study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth(2Tim.2:15). Then you will learn how to be a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. For I say, through the grace that is given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.(Romans 12:1-3).
2Corinthians 4:15-18. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day (through the hearing of the Word in your closet). For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Hebrew 11:1. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. AND….
Romans 10:17. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Psalm 138:2. I will worship toward thy holy temple(toward Heaven- Ps.48:1-3), and praise thy name for thy loving kindness, and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Luke 21:34-36. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting (partying, dinners, etc.), and drunkenness(religious activities – spiritual drunkenness,
Isaiah 28:7-8), and cares of this life(earthly concerns), and so that day come upon you unawares(when Jesus returns to judge the world and take up his people- only one second coming). For as a snare shall it come upon all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth( and they shall be caught in their worldly preoccupations- Job 35:9-14).
Watch ye therefore, and pray always that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass (while we are still on this planet), and to stand before the Son of man. Since Pentecost there have been many coming in the name of Jesus, claiming Jesus is Lord but deceiving people by religious doctrines and ceremonies which were nailed to the cross. Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of the law. Jesus Christ is the end of the Law.
He taught us how to live in Matthew 5, 6, & 7. That is also what he taught us to teach and do (see Matt.5:17-20). Jesus alone is the Sabbath- He is our rest (Matt. 11:28-30.)
If we rest in him then we must rest in the word. He is the Word. The word of God and Jesus is inseparable. If one is not a word man one has no Jesus. Simple. He alone teaches us by his Holy Spirit (1John 2:27).
Since Pentecost (the spiritual second three and a half years of the tribulation period), there has been the greatest time of tribulation never before seen on earth since time began… the wholesale destruction/killing of God’s people who dare testify for Jesus Christ the living God, and it still goes on today – by the religious extremists of Christianity as well as other religions.
This was warned of by Jesus(John 16:1-2,33). During the first three and a half years there was peace, a literal time through Jesus Christ who was the peace offered to the world by God. When Jesus went to the cross he put an end to the law of sacrifice and oblation(religious service – Daniel 9:27) and gave us a new covenant through through him, the true and only biblically correct reformation (Heb.9:10), and that is only for those who are by called God that they may receive the promise of eternal inheritance (Heb.9:15).
Please note Matthew 22:10-14 – Many are called – not all – and few are chosen. Life is too short to waste time arguing about these kinds of doctrine. There is no such position whereby we can agree to disagree as though we are still all one. Aif we have the wrong doctrine then we have missed the ‘gospel train’. Humble ourselves and read the king james bible and see for yourselves how God can teach you if you ask him.
Job.35:12-13. There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it (Read from 9-14 and James 4:4,5-8). Christians need to fellowship together for their edification, exhortation, and comfort (1Corin.14:3) and avoid the deceitfulness of sin.
Hebrew 3:12-14. Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily while it is called Today: lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin (religion is blasphemy against the finished work of Jesus at the cross.) For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence (in Christ) stedfast to the end;
We are all builded together into a spiritual habitation to God by Jesus Christ the word of God, the chief cornerstone (1Peter 2:5-9; Eph.2:19-22) and Jesus alone is the builder of this tabernacle/temple/habitation of God (Matt.16:18; Heb.8:1-2; John 2:19-21; Zech.3:8-10; Zech.4:6(not by man’s hands but by God’s power through hearing the word); Zech.6:12-13; Haggai 2:9 Jesus is the latter and greater glory, all these scripture are fulfilled in Jesus. He is the Word, He is the Light. He is the way. He is the truth.
Only one truth – not many variations. He is the master builder. He is the cornerstone, the foundation stone, NOT CAPSTONE as other translations say.. That is Masonic, the work of satan. We , the elect of God, are the called, chosen, and faithful. The antichrist one world government is already here and warring against God’s people and the Lamb (Rev.17:14). They have taken the bible out of the Whitehouse, out of the Senate, out of the Congress, out of the Supreme Court and all the courts, they have taken the bible out of the schools.
They have no hope for there is no hope without the word of God. Even public preaching is outlawed by the I.C.C.P.R. because we say there is absolutely only one way to heaven. Religious denominations exist because they compromise or they could not get registration with the antichrist governments. Our fellowships is in our homes or other places where we may be able to meet, eg ,coffee shops, food centers, in a park, or suchlike place. We meet in groups where fellowship is personal and we talk with one another, not sit there and keep quiet because of the man in front. The true church is a real family, held together by the blood of Jesus. In Jesus name. AMEN. Praise the Lord. If you truly are born again YOU ARE THE CHURCH. God bless you. Amen.
