HE Became BOTH so You Could Become ONE of HIS.
DO YOU have a Restored Soul, reclaimed from the darkness that surrounds you?
Is it possible to serve God without knowing and understanding who He is as revealed in His word contained in His Bible? Have you come to the understanding of what it means to be His disciple?
Have you spent time with Him so you can be of value in this war between Light and Darkness that continues all around you? A war of Truth verses lies, a war that only the understanding of sound doctrine can prepare you to fight in. A war where the line between the Truth and the Lie requires biblical discernment taught by true men of God who know how to divide the Word of God rightly.
Listen to the inspired words of the Apostle Paul to the Church, from Hebrews 5 verses 7 to 11:
“There is much more we would like to say about this. But you don’t seem to listen. So it is hard to make you understand. You have been Christians a long time; and you ought to be teaching others. Instead you need to re-learn the basics.”
Do those words apply to you?
The Apostle Paul is addressing a problem within the newborn church in Christ. The same problem exists today. It translates into the development of weak believers, who have no foundation, who have no discernment, who are tossed by every change in the wind of doctrine. It continues to create weak pulpits, it continues to produce shallow preaching and worst of all it changes the Gospel that saves to another Gospel that is hollow and condemns people to an eternity in Hell.
Christ charged Paul to be the Apostle to the Gentiles. Paul spent his life on earth building the newborn Church. He nursed it, he fed it, and he took its hand as a child and taught it doctrine so the cornerstone and the foundation of the Church would be built on Christ ALONE.
Later near the end of Paul’s life when in jail, tired and alone knowing that death was coming. He questioned if his work for Christ was going to stand, had he labored his whole life for Christ in vain? Paul lamented about the church. The church that was newborn was already dying. The Church had let in heresies; and very quickly was on the road to apostasy.
The early church of 2,000 years ago is a far cry from the church we know today. With the exception of the fact that it still is filled with heresies and apostasy. The churches today in the United States of America, not all but most, are no different than in the days of Paul.
Three Statements continue to Echo throughout the Universe. The first two come from the mouth of JESUS. “IT IS FINISHED !” And “WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM ?”
The third Statement comes from the mouth of the Apostle Paul directed to the Church. “HOW CAN YOU ABANDON CHRIST ?”
There is no greater time in history than the time you now live in. All the signs are converging together quickly; JESUS, The LORD is coming soon. The last chapter of the book of the story of physical mankind will soon quickly come to a conclusion.
It can be said of Isaiah as it can be said of each of us…everyone was born for such a time as this! Each of us was called from beyond the mist of time in eternity past to come forth from the mind of God to live and to make a difference in the lives of people that surround us. The people within the sound of our voice, within the touch of our hand, within the sight of our eyes; this is our purpose.
That IS our ONLY PURPOSE !
