Four types of believers: theunfetteredpreacher

Four types of believers :
An older post, revisited:

December 15, 2014
There are 4 types of believers in the body of Christ :

The Church attenders
The Levites
The Priest’s
Those who walk with God :

☆ The Church attenders:

These are the people who desperately want a Savior, some attend church Christmas and Easter, most every Sunday, a chosen few two or more times a week. They may be involved with Sunday school, choir, Bible study.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

They have allowed Jesus to be Savior; As Lord, not so much.

They love the idea of being saved as long as it doesn’t interrupt or change their lives too much.

Like the Hebrews in the desert, they will gladly partake of the Lords provisions while complaining about the same.

Man: “I haven’t had a new pair of shoes in years.”
Other man: “Well, they still look brand new.”
Man: “Yeah, I want different ones.”

Dismissing the miracles the Lord is doing, daily.

☆ The Levites:

The Levites are the backbone of the Churches; they are the organizers, the workers, builders, movers and shakers.

In the desert they assembled and disassembled, carried and cared for the Lords house.

Protected it from stangers (those who knew not the Lord). They stood with the Priest’s when the Church attenders sinned.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

They have allowed Jesus to be Savior; and Lord in many areas of their lives.

Some things are just to dear to give up.

☆ The Priest’s :

These are the doers of the Word: They study to show themselves approved, workmen rightly dividing the Word of truth. They teach, preach, exhort, comfort, guide and direct. Wherever they go.

They know the apostles creed, they have believed and confessed Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Jesus is their Lord and Savior :

They live a life of holiness, sanctification and consecration.

They deny themselves and take up their cross daily.

They work out their Salvation with fear and trembling.

They have set their face like flint towards the Lord.

They may have many followers or none. They are concerned with being obedient to God. They will be misunderstood, maligned, persecuted and highly favored by God.

☆ Those who walk with God :

Psalm 65:4
King James Version (KJV)
“Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.”

This is who we all should aspire to be. The Lord has stood at the door of our hearts, we have accepted Him in. Now we need to let Him Cause us to approach, learn to enter into the Holy of Holies, to find the mercy and grace He so wants to share.

Psalm 22 tells us He inhabits the Praise of His people. If we desire to walk with Jesus, we must learn to praise and worship. Learn to live the Lords prayer, not just recite it.

If we want to experience joy unspeakable, the peace that passes understanding, the comforter, teacher, lover of our souls, we must Worship and adore Him. Believe Him…Take His Yoke…..it is the only way to Walk with Him.

If you just attend Church, and don’t allow Jesus to be Lord, when its time to enter the promise, you may find you have an evil heart of unbelief. Like the Hebrews you may just wonder and die in the desert.

Please Lord, create in us clean hearts and renew our Spirits, that we might Walk with You.

The key of knowledge: theunfetteredpreacher

The key of knowledge. Not the Tree of, or the Word of, but the Knowledge of Christ. ‘Be not conformed to this world, but Transformed by the Renewing of your mind.’

Sadly, many Denominations have the Truth that was revealed to their Founders. Now.,, They have it all. There is no more to learn from the Scriptures.

New Revelation is discarded, refused, irrelevant. They are just like the Jewish Leaders, in the time of Christ.

Luke 11: 52.

“Woe unto you, lawyers! (Religious leaders), for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”

Another translation:

Luke 11:52 Names of God Bible (NOG)

“How horrible it will be for you experts in Moses’ Teachings! You have taken away the key that unlocks knowledge. You haven’t gained entrance into knowledge yourselves, and you’ve kept out those who wanted to enter.”

The Churches today, that deny the Work of the Holy Spirit for today, are looking for a Malpractice suit.

Saints, they cannot teach the Truth of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, they have no True Spiritual Discernment.

They claim to have the Spirit, but do not, or will not, ask for the Gift of Tongues.

It scares them. They do not realize: 1 Corinthians 14:32
‘The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.’

When we first receive the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of Speaking in Tongues, it is easy to scare those without, our Joy, Peace and Love abounds.

We sing, Dance, Speak, Pray and Sing in the Spirit. It is hard to contain the Joy we receive, like David, we dance before the Lord.

Speaking not for man’s edification, but directly to God. (Spirit, ours, to God’s Spirit, perfect prayer), sadly some reject this as confusion.

We need to search the Scriptures, not to disprove, but to prove that they are true.

Church, you alone are responsible, for what you accept as Truth. The Word of Man, or of God.

I choose to believe and follow the Scriptures and the Lord, not the Bad Theology of some of our Churches.

Your choice, Your Walk with the Lord. I want a closer, more powerful life with Him. How about you?

‘You can have the relationship you want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.’

Do we know God’s voice? theunfetteredpreacher

Another older post revisited. Still the Truth

Do you think you know the Voice of God? Have you heard Him speak? Would you recognize His Voice, if He spoke to you?

Is it the sound of a Mighty Rushing Wind? Or a still small voice? Do you hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host?

“Let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself:” (What?)

Do you strain to hear Him? Do you understand what He is saying? Do you believe he speaks at all?

“They heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day:”

Adam and Eve recognized the voices of the Lord God, and because of their sin, hid.

Do we find ourselves, hiding from God, ashamed of ourselves? He desires we come boldly to His throne of Grace.

We certainly can do that, IF we are covered with the blood of the Lamb.

“If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”

Freedom from the plagues of Egypt? One of the many promises given to those who love Him.

John 5:25
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.”

Are you living, do you hear His voice?

Psalm 29:3
“The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters.”

Psalm 95:6-8 (KJV)

“O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.

For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:”

It may be a still small voice, we think of it, as our conscience. It might be a mighty rushing wind, we experience as we read His Word, and are blown away by His Revelation to us.

Or it could be in the midst of a storm.

The Lord wants to speak to us. To make His will and ways for our life clear. “Today, harden not your heart…”

He said:

“Take My Yoke, learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

Find rest, walk with Jesus, hear His voice.

Amen

‘You can have the relationship you want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.’

After him was none like him: 2: theunfetteredpreacher

Hezekiah, from the start of his reign, was blessed, as he turned Judah towards God.

2 Chronicles 31: 21.

“And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.”

Judah, was a prosperous Nation, because they had turned to God. Prosperity and Peace lasted for 14 years, then several things happened.

The King of Assyria had taken Isreal captive ten years before. He had been defeating all Nations and their Gods, that were in the area. Now, he turned to Judah.

2 Kings 18: 11-13

And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes:

Because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD their God, but transgressed his covenant, and all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded, and would not hear them, nor do them.

Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.”

Here we see Hezekiah falter in his faith. Judah, was under attack, some of it’s cities had fallen, and Hezekiah began to pay Tribute.

He removed Gold from the Temple doors, all the Silver from the Treasury… the Riches that the Lord had given, because they had turned to Him, and gave it to Sennacherib.

He found it was not enough.

Then Sennacherib, sent emissaries to the walls of Jerusalem, and told the people, he would soon conquer them and their God.

The people, by order of Hezekiah, were silent. Sennacherib, also sent letters to Hezekiah saying much the same.

This finaly opened Hezekiahs eyes.

2 Chronicles 32: 6-8

And he set captains of war over the people, and gathered them together to him in the street of the gate of the city, and spake comfortably to them, saying,

Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:

With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.”

He rent his clothes, went to the house of the Lord, and laid his concerns before God.

Isaiah 37: 14-17

And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.

And Hezekiah prayed unto the LORD, saying,

O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.

Incline thine ear, O LORD, and hear; open thine eyes, O LORD, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.”

Lord, open Your eyes and see, and Your ears to hear…

The Word of the Lord came to Isaiah the Prophet.

Isaiah 37: 35-37

For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David’s sake.

Then the angel of the LORD went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.”

Where Sennacherib, returned in shame to Assyria, and was killed, while he was Worshiping his god, by his own people.

Notice, the fight was not in the natural world, but was WON, in the Spiritual. The Lord sent His Angel to win the battle.

2 Chronicles 32: 23.

And many brought gifts unto the LORD to Jerusalem, and presents to Hezekiah king of Judah: so that he was magnified in the sight of all nations from thenceforth.”

The second prayer of Hezekiah, answered in a spectacular manner. Because Hezekiah:

2 Kings 18: 5.

He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.”

‘You can have the relationship you want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.’

After him, was none like him: 1: theunfetteredpreacher

Hezekiah, a man of God. At 24 he became King of the Tribe of Judah. The two Tribes, (Israel and Judah), had both fallen away from the Lord.

Hezekiah, in his first month, of his first year, as King, called the Levites and Priests to Sanctify themselves, and the House of the Lord. (Sanctify- To set apart for the Lord’s Service).

2 Chronicles 29: 10-11

“Now it is in mine heart to make a covenant with the LORD God of Israel, that his fierce wrath may turn away from us. My sons, be not now negligent: for the LORD hath chosen you to stand before him, to serve him, and that ye should minister unto him, and burn incense.”

He called all of Judah to Sanctify themselves, to come to the House of the Lord to Worship. Not enough Preists were Sanctified, so the Levites, stepped up to do the work.

(The Levites, were originally called to care for the Tabernacle, and all the contents. They were in charge of keeping the Holy Vessels and Lamp Stands and Alters ready for the Preists to Sacrifice and obtain Forgiveness for the people. The Levites led in Praise and Worship).

So Hezekiah, as his first order of business, was to bring the people back to God.

The King called all of Israel and Judah to come to Jerusalem, to celebrate the Passover, they were a month late, and had not kept the tradition for years. They returned to the Lord.

He pleaded that they not be stiffnecked as their fathers were, but to come and yield themselves to The Lord, in the Sanctuary.

2 Chronicles 30: 4.

And the thing pleased the king and all the congregation.

Many of those who came to Worship, had not Sanctified themselves, yet ate the Passover.

2 Chronicles 30:18-20

For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good LORD pardon every one ,That prepareth his heart to seek God, the LORD God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary.

And the LORD hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people.”

This was the first of Three recorded Prayers of Hezekiah, that the Lord answered.

Hezekiah spoke and comforted the people, assuring them that God’s wrath, would be turned away.

There had not been such great Joy in Jerusalem, since the days of Solomon, the son of David. The Preists and Levites Blessed the people, and their voice and prayer was heard in Heaven.

Hezekiah appointed the Preists and Levites to receive the Gifts of the People, and to build storehouses.

2 Chronicles 31: 21.

“And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.”

The story of Hezekiah is found in 2 Chronicles, 2 Kings, and in the Book of Isaiah. The other two prayers the Lord answered are up next. I will leave you with this verse.

2 Kings 18: 5.

“He trusted in the LORD God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.”
