Romans 12:2 states; 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.
Greetings and Salutations my brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to those of us who are His remnant in these last days. We are to pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:15-17 states; vs.15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. vs.16 Rejoice evermore. vs.17 Pray without ceasing. We are to love the Lord our God with our whole heart, soul, and strength. Deuteronomy 6:4-5 states; Hear , O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord: vs.5 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. We are to seek the face of the Lord in fervent prayer and supplication with our whole heart and with all of our soul. Deuteronomy 4:29 states; But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. Brethren, we are not called to conform to this world, but we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, through prayer, reading, and meditating upon the holy word of God. Ephesians 4:23-24 states; vs.23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; vs.24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Brethren, are you seeking the Lord’s perfect will for your life? Are you being transformed by the renewing of your mind in Christ Jesus our Lord? Seek His face my brethren, for in these last days, we must be girded in Him, for these are the times that try men’s souls, and we must not be found wanting.
Brethren, Deuteronomy 6:5 states; And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and all thy soul, and with all thy might. Are you following this commandment, or are you following after the lusts of the flesh which will lead to sin and eventually death? We must walk in the Spirit, and pray without ceasing my brethren, so that we do not fall into the temptation to fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Galatians 5:16 states; This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Brethren, it is time that we who are of the household of faith examine our hearts. We must look deep within our hearts and see if we are indeed living for our most holy Lord and Savior, or if we are living for this world, and fulfilling the lusts thereof. 2 Corinthians 13:5 states; Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? We must live surrendered lives unto the Lord and be separate from the world. We must walk in the Spirit, pray without ceasing, and read and meditate upon God’s holy word daily. If we would but do these things, we put on the whole armor of God which enables us to quench the fiery darts of the wicked one, and be an effective witness of the Lord’s love to this lost and dying world. Ephesians 6:10-13 states; vs.10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. vs.11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. vs.12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. vs.13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
James 1:12 states; Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Brethren, are you enduring the many temptations that beset you, or are you compromising with sin, and falling prey to the many temptations, and giving in to them. Brethren, there is a precious promise for those who love the Lord Jesus and endure divers temptation. This promise is for those who love the Lord, and not their own lives, even unto the death. For we will be given a crown of life if we hold steadfast in Him, and trust in Him to deliver us from all evil. Brethren, will you trust in the Lord Jesus to deliver you from all temptation, or will you give in to temptation and fall away from the Lord? The choice is up to you. Brethren, there is a promise given to those who give in to temptation and the lusts of the flesh. James 1:14 states; But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived it bringeth forth sin: and sin when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Beware my precious brethren, for your sin will surely find you out.
What will your choice be? Will you love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and might, or will you choose to fall into divers temptations and follow after the lusts of the flesh? The choice is ultimately up to you. Choose ye this day whom you will serve! Will you serve the Lord Jesus Christ, which in the end, you will receive a crown of life? Or will you choose to fall into temptation, and the lusts of the flesh, which in the end will bring only sin, destruction, and death? The choice is up to you. Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand! Amen.
