2 Corinthians 6:17-18; Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a mighty Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Greetings and Salutations my brethren! The Lord Jesus has placed a message upon my heart that speaks to those of us who are the called and chosen one’s of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The enemy of our soul wants us to fall back into the sin that once separated us from the Lord our God. He wants us to believe the lie that since we are saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus, we can dabble in sin, and still make heaven our home. Brethren, this doctrine of devils is being preached by the many wolves in sheep’s clothing that are in the majority of the mainstream churches today. Beware of this false teaching, and be holy as the Lord our God is holy! Do not touch the unclean thing my brethren, for we are to be separate from the world as we are a peculiar people, set apart unto the Lord. Psalm 4:3 states; But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: the Lord will hear when I call unto him.
Brethren, we must be aware of the wiles of the devil. We must understand and know his strategies that rage against our very souls. We must live our lives in direct opposition to these strategies, by not touching the unclean thing that would present itself in our lives. Brethren, do not let the enemy of your soul take control of your lives through vain deceit and lies. Do not let the cares of this world overcome the peace and joy that the Lord has freely given to you. 1 Peter 5:8 states; Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. Remember this my brethren; the devil seeks to destroy you. He seeks whom he may devour, and his strategy is to do so at any cost. The enemy will not stop his attacks upon our lives for even a second my brethren. Be sober and vigilant for we are called us to be good soldiers of Christ in these last days. 2 Timothy 2:3-4 states; vs.3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. vs.4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
Brethren, do not let your victory in the Lord Jesus be taken away by the enemy. For the cares of this world are such that they will choke out the word in our very lives if we let them. Luke 4:19 states; And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becommeth unfruitful. Brethren, we must not become unfruitful in our lives by allowing the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches to lead us to fall. For the Lord is calling those of us who are His holy remnant to be aware of the strategy of the enemy, and fight against it, through prayer and fasting before the Lord. We must not touch the unclean things of this life, which will cause us to fall again into sin and separation from our most holy Lord.
Brethren, as followers of Jesus we are to lead victorious lives in Him. We are to fight against the sins that so easily beset us, and trust in the Lord always. We must do our first works, and not lose our first love. The Lord is calling us to fast and pray fervently. He is calling us to read and study His holy word daily. If we would but do these things, our souls will be restored each day as we follow our most holy Lord. For the Lord Jesus commands us to pray. Matthew 26:41 states; Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. We are also commanded to read and study God’s holy word. 2 Timothy 2:15 states; Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. Be encouraged my brethren for if the Lord be for us, then who can be against us!
Brethren, it is time for us to repent of the sin of touching the unclean things of this world. We must seek the face of the Lord, and return to our first love, and do our first works, as we are commanded to do. Revelation 2:4-5 states; vs.4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou has left thy first love. vs.5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick from out of his place, except thou repent. The lusts of the flesh may look pleasing to the eyes, but they are indeed destructive and are the cause of many who once walked with the Lord Jesus to fall again into sin, which eventually leads to destruction and death. The devil is a thief my brethren. He comes to deceive and destroy your very soul. Be ever vigilant my brethren, be ever vigilant. John 10:10 states; For the thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. Know and understand the strategy of the enemy against your very lives my brethren. Understand, that by touching the unclean things of this life, there is a price to pay. The enemy of our soul wants us to fall back into sin, and therefore, once again, be separated from our most holy Lord and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Brethren, trust in the Lord, for He loves you! 2 Peter 3:9 states; The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. The Lord is calling us to repent of our sin and compromise with the unclean things of this world. We must turn away from the unclean things that would entice us to sin. For if we do not turn away, we will be again separated from the Lord, and we will be in danger of hell fire. We who are true followers of our Lord and Savior the Lord Jesus Christ must put aside all the workings of the flesh. We must not touch the unclean things of this world. If we are doing so, we must repent, return to our first love, and do our first works. For the Lord will not be mocked, nor will He strive with man. For He is a just God, and His mercy endures forever. Be encouraged my brethren. For if you are again ensnared by the wiles and strategies of the enemy, there is hope for you. Fall on your face in repentance now. Ask the Lord Jesus to forgive you, and cleanse you from all of your sin and compromise with the unclean things of this world. He is faithful and just to forgive you of your sins, and He will restore you. 1 John 1:9 states; If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Be encouraged my brethren, for there is hope for us in our Lord Jesus. For He is strong to save, and He will finish that good and perfect work which He has started in our lives. Take heart my brethren and be vigilant! Be vigilant! Amen.
