Men's Hearts Will Fail them of Fear- Be Secure In Christ & Stand
With everything that is coming as we draw closer to the tribulation times warned of in the Bible their will be a since of despair.
The fear that is coming that we are told that "A great fear" will overtake the people. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. John 14:1
A spiritual fear too "Believe in God and Also believe in Jesus" as Jesus spoke in John 14:1 We must reach out to God and choose to believe and let God deliver us.Whosoever calls on Jesus will be saved.
In the end times men's hearts will fail them. This is so strong this fear that it will stop one's heart.
We as Christians have to an answer to this. What God tells us to do to remain in his safety, walking the narrow path. We must heed to God's leading and also watch,pray,warn and stand in Jesus Christ. God's people perish because they do not take the time and study God's word. His instructions for living in this world, overcoming darkness,sickness,trials,devils,-from absolutely being destroyed by satan because we belong to Christ and that's the only reason needed to be attacked.
We are going to be affected to a certain degree when all this coming darkness manifests in the world.The atmosphere will weigh with darkness and the pressure will be felt. We won't be in the fear though because we cling to the promises of God and remain in his peace period no matter what we are tempted to feel.
Be aware that Christians persecution has increased worldwide also including America. An intolerance for anything Christian and also strait out slaughters have increased and soon this will become a worldwide frenzy and it will be as if they are killing Christians like animals at a slaughter. Revelation tells us about those that will be murdered and how there blood cries out for God to restore justice and revenge for they killed them for no reason. God hates the killing of the innocent and he will make things right one day. Repent and come out from among them and I will deliver you and forgive you in the name of Jesus God has declared to us. If we stand condemned it is our own fault- God delivers,forgives the guilty and restores them by giving them life and His very spirit. Love, and more love so we can overcome!!
A lot of preachers this day are not letting there sheep know what is happening or even that it is coming and will manifest. They are not preparing the people. They are not praying and watching for the word of God is unfolding before this world as an open book for anyone that will call out to Jesus!
They have forsaken God and starved there sheep and the sheep/people's blood will be on those disobedient Pastor,Ministers and Leaders. They are just sitting there with no walls of prayer built up and sin, and demons galore running rampant through there churches. Allow the people to sleep undisturbed until they are pulverized by satan. We pray for God to wake the people up in Jesus name. They are dead and we speak life to those dead churches. We prophecy and speak life to them in Jesus name- declaring that the dry bones of the people that have been spiritually malnourished to stand and hear, receive the word of God!
We must not allow ourselves to get stuck or even caught up/ Distracted by the coming darkness & events. This is going to really rock and crumble a lot of people. We do not have to go through the same devastation as those that do not trust God, the one's that turned there backs on God.This why now is the time to draw near,stay close- don't take the bait being held out to you. See through all the many traps to pull us away from God. We have been called out of darkness and we can be prepared for what is coming.
We have to stay ready and if we are not ready get ready and call out to God to help you. He is the only one that can lead you and keep you in Jesus name.If not than you have made your choice to be defeated because without God no man will be able to stand and remain in Christ. There must be a relationship going on in between you and Jesus in order for you to hear his voice, to follow His Spirit. We can not allow rebellion to block God's spirit. Do or die people.
We must watch and pay attention to what is going on in this world but be not a part of it's sin against God. Like Jesus said in this world but not part of. Not even conformed to it's way of thinking but transformed by God's word, God renews are minds and our bodies.
The mind is a key part because if we let Jesus come in, he shines light on our understanding. So than we can understand and grasp God's promises, we are able to believe them. This world can't bully us out of God's will because we know the truth and see the truth and live it- walking it out and seeing the hand of God work.
This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
But ye have not so learned Christ;Ephesians 4:17-20
We have a covenant with God- God is faithful to his promises. Those that are in darkness/ with there minds darkened will become in a state of panic. We must not allow this in us.Stay alert and watch so we are not taken by surprise- it is so easy to slip away if not girded and pressing forward on purpose.
Going against the current has no claims of how easy it will feel but with God we shall not be overcome by anything not even the waters of adversity!
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus personality is all the fruit of the spirit in Galatians 5- love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,Meekness,& temperance.This is the character of Jesus and we should walk like this.
How did Jesus handle things?He didn't start screaming and flarring his arms when they threatened to throw him off a cliff! Make sure we understand how to act. Jesus wasn't pressed by any situation.Learn of Jesus/ Learn from Jesus.
Back to Matthew 11, come unto me All that are heavy laden, that are weary- Labor fatigue, weary from work, to toil. This is the meaning of tired from labor too- to toil. in Mark 6:48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them. Giving the fishermen the sense of going to the bottom. They thought that they were just going to sink and die!
There is also weariness and fatigue that isn't from labor/toiling. So this isn't just about working.Do all like it is for Jesus.
- A good manager is not known by how well there employees act in there presence but they are known by how well there employees act when they are not there!
Toil is a sense of work but also there's no way out. No answer in sight. What are we to do to the point of being consumed. Galatians 5:15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
- They are relying on there own strength and work performed and not relying/trusting God.
Let God lead us and speak to our heart.
what's gong to happen when the people see what they have lost- when it comes upon them?
They are heavy laden- they are carrying a heavy load.Also means they are over burden with ceremony. This speaks of the Mosaic Law- it was burdensome as it was the Pharisees that added & added to the laws, making it impossible for anyone to abide by them.There was no way to do it!
Jesus 1st invitation- Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and youshall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
"I will give you rest" Rest for you in the natural & spiritual rest.
So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.Hebrews 3:11-12 They could not enter because of unbelief.
Luke 19:42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
Study peace- how it keeps us,our hearts,the deliverance,freedom and how we have no reason to fear if we know how awesome God is and what to expect him to do for those who love, honor and stand faithful to God!We have to know how to get peace and walk in it.
We overcome the accuser by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and our testimony reminding us of what God has done for us!!
Get in line- line up to this- God's instructions for overcoming this world!
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?Matthew 6:25 God tell us this so we will trust him/depend on God to meet our needs and know this God is faithful!
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
*(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.Matthew 6:30-33
Don't pick this burden up! You have faith & trust in God!Your peace and righteousness is in God through Christ Jesus!God knows what we need and will supply all of it!Our job is to finish the job that Jesus sent us to do- let the world know what was done at the cross and walk in his resurrection power!! Raise the dead (physical & spiritually),feed the hungry, visit the sick and pray for them, pray for the lost, pray about everything in Jesus name.All of this in Jesus name! The hands,feet, and body of Christ all having the same spirit of God and following Jesus!
Toiling doesn't mean that you won't feel like your sinking. Jesus said "Come to ME".
If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.Mark 4:23-24 Not everything we hear will be correct.
Now if we back up in Mark- It is the parable of the sower.
And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.-Mark 4:7
These thorns represent people shown in Numbers 33:55- But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell.
SO there are thorns growing up with us/ People trying to choke the word of God to stop the word of God.
And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.Mark 4:19
- cares of this world
- deceitfulness of riches
- lusts of other things
Jesus told us to take heed to what we hear.Our attention must be on Jesus.
Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.Luke 8:18
We are to pay attention to/Take heed to:
- What we hear
- how we are hearing it (how are you perceiving it/to protect ourself too)
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.Matthew 24:4-5
Take heed to what you hear and how you hear so you are not deceived because the deception will be great.
We can not let people/thorns turn our eyes or let our understanding become darkened- or have a shadow cast about it.
Jesus said "COME TO ME, I WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU AND PROTECT YOU.
Your Great Name
