Deuteronomy 8: 7
“For the LORD thy God bringeth thee into a good land;”
The Hebrews were ready to enter the Promised Land, after 40 years in the desert.
They had wondered, never reaching their goal, because of what the writer of Hebrews called, ‘An Evil Heart of UNBELIEF.’
That being so, their clothing wasn’t worn out, they were fed daily, their feet didn’t swell. Their needs were met.
They were brought to total reliance on God. They were the Children of God.
This is where we find the Church today.
We are at the border of the Promised Land, and, ‘An Evil Heart of Unbelief,’ is keeping us from entering in.
Yes, we are Saved, we are the New Children of God, but our UNBELIEF, has kept us from the Promise.
The good land, Deuteronomy 8: 9.
“A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it;“
We are here, yet some hunger, some are lacking, some never enter into the Promise.
Why? ‘Evil hearts of unbelief.’
Our Carnal Minds, do not accept the Truth Jesus spoke. We have a Believers Baptism, rather then the Baptism of Repentance and the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. As Jesus did.
We want to believe God can do anything! But, He doesn’t do that anymore. We are not taught to believe, we are taught to accept a Powerless, Uncaring, Vengeful Father God.
When God would have all be saved, healed, forgiven, and to prosper as we grow closer to Him.
I am not talking money, although it is certainly a segment of the blessings of God.
No, I mean, Peace, Joy, the Comfort of the Holy Ghost. Words of Wisdom and Knowledge, given to us only by God.
The Gifts of Healing, Working of Miracles, the Gift of Faith, to believe.
He wants us to enter into His Promise. Sadly, we are not taught how or what that is.
Search the Scriptures, see if this is True. The enimies of the Lord have made our Religions, an empty shell, devoid of the Truth.
We must, as individuals, Study to show ourselves approved, workmen, not ashamed, rightly deviding the Word of Truth.
Our Pastors should guide us, not confuse us with bad Doctrine. The Book overrules all else.
The Lord wants us in a place that lacks nothing. This is only found in His Arms.
