Difficult times are ahead.
More so than now…much more so.
2 Ti 3:1
But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
A sad element of this is that many professing believers will be the source of difficulty.
They do not know the Word of the Lord.
They do not have the Mind of the Lord.
They simply live in the mind of man.
Many are not true believers.
They are religious…many very faithful to their religion.
Yet, they are not saved.
Many will speak the mind of the adversary and not know it.
Peter did so…
But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said,
“Get behind Me, Satan;
for you are not setting your mind on God’s purposes, but on man’s.”
Peter thought he was saying the correct thing.
Peter thought he was defending the Lord.
He was not.
He was speaking the word of the enemy.
His mind was not set on God’s purposes.
His mind was set on man’s purposes.
Do not succumb to the lies, strategies and ignorance of others.
Have the Mind of the Lord.
Set your mind on God’s purposes.
Seek Him for wisdom and understanding, not the lying voices of the world.
Find those with Truth.
Stand strong in the Truth, even as lies come our way from friend, family and foe.
Too many true believers believe the lies of the enemy through the world.
Where is discerning/distinguishing of spirits?
and to another the effecting of miracles,
and to another prophecy,
and to another the distinguishing of spirits,
to another various kinds of tongues,
and to another the interpretation of tongues.
Where is seeking of the Lord?
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be provided to you.
Where is illumination and enlightenment of the Spirit?
We are entering into another time of heightened lie and deception.
It is by design
Lies for an agenda.
Lies to cover agenda.
Lies to kill, steal and destroy.
Lies to hide the truth.
Come on folk!
Walk in the Spirit.
Have some sense in the Spirit.
Do not just automatically believe something because some “official” or flip-flopping letter agency states it.
My default position is “if the world is saying it, it is likely deception, lie, etc.”.
Seek the Mind of the Lord.
Not the mind of man.
Otherwise, you will be deceived and rendered powerless for the Kingdom.
Quit rejecting the empowerment of the Lord…all of it.
Walk in His Power.
Teach me good discernment and knowledge,
For I believe in Your commandments.
And this I pray,
that your love may overflow still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment,
“Now Is the Time”
Now is the time!
Now is the time to live in Power.
Now is the time to awaken from our sleep…
Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; for now salvation is nearer to us than when we first believed.
Now is the time to be the voice of God…
“Truly, truly, I say to you, a time is coming and even now has arrived,
when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.
Now is the time to worship Father in Spirit.
Now is the time to worship Father in Truth.
“But a time is coming, and even now has arrived, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.
Now is the time to set aside “religion”.
Now is the time to toss the “cutesy-ness” found in so many religious gatherings.
Now is the time to depend totally and unequivocally upon the Lord.
Worship in Spirit and Truth.
Live in the Power of the Lord.
Watch what God does.
“Truly, truly I say to you, the one who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also;
and greater works than these he will do; because I am going to the Father.
“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’
“Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those with leprosy, cast out demons.
Freely you received, freely give.
Preach the Kingdom.
Heal the sick.
Raise the dead.
Cleanse the leprous.
Cast out demons
(Note the Lord did not say “pray about it”…He said “do it”. Hummm&hellip
Lies are on the increase.
Fear is increasing.
The Body of Christ must walk in wisdom and revelation from the Lord lest we be deceived.
Many are already deceived.
They place more trust in man and his devices than they do in the Most High God.
Many will pay dearly for this.
They will gain an early entry into eternity.
I can not emphasize this enough.
We must take everything before the Lord.
Do not walk in fear.
Do not walk in anxiety.
Do not believe the world.
Seek the wisdom of the Lord.
Seek the revelation of the Lord.
Seek the illumination of the Lord.
Seek the enlightenment of the Lord.
Your corporeal existence depends upon such.
For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints,
do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers;
that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,
and what is the boundless greatness of His power toward us who believe.
God will give a spirit of wisdom.
God will give revelation in the knowledge of Him.
God will give enlightenment.
God will give hope.
God will give a rich inheritance.
God will give His boundless power to us who believe.
Do you believe?
If not, then get it right before God…today!
