After him was none like him: 3 Hezekiah: theunfetteredpreacher

The third recorded prayer of Hezekiah, that the Lord answered,is a more personal prayer.

The first prayer was for the people who had not yet consecrated hemselved to the Lord, that He would bless and accept their offerings, as Judahreturned to the Lord.

2 Chronicles 31: 20-21

“And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the LORD his God.

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 second prayer, was for victoryover the Assyrians, who had spoken against God and Hezekiah. That they would be defeated.

2 Chronicles 32: 21-23

And the LORD sent an angel, which cut off all the mighty men of valour, and the leaders and captains in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned with shame of face to his own land. And when he was come into the house of his god, they that came forth of his own bowels slew him there with the sw19d.

Thus the LORD saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all other, and guided them on every side.

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.”

It was verse 23, that really caused Hezekiahs third prayer. He became prideful. When the leaders of Babylon came to pay him homage, he showedthem all the riches tha Lord had supplied.

Isaiah 38: 1.

In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came unto him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order: for thou shalt die, and not live.

Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed unto the LORD,

And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah, saying,

Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

And this shall be a sign unto thee from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that he hath spoken;

Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.”

The Lord gave him a sign and fifteen more years of life and peace. He was happy with his, even though Jusdah would go back into captivity at that time.

2 Kings 20: 19

Then said Hezekiah unto Isaiah, Good is the word of the LORD which thou hast spoken. And he said, Is it not good, if peace and truth be in my days?”

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

The Holy Spirit and Salvation: theunfetteredpreacher

Believers, all together.

Acts 2: 1-8

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?”

Acts 2:38-39

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.”

Acts 2:41-43

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.”

After healing the man at the gate beautiful, they were forbidden to preach Jesus. Acts 3 & 4

Acts 4: 29-33

And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.”

Phillip, Peter and John, praying for believers. Simon saw the effects of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. (Tongues, Joy, Power). And wanted the Power to give the Holy Spirit.

Acts 8: 14-19

Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John:

Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost.

And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,

Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.”

Paul, serving God with Zeal, but persecuting Christians. It took a touch from God to set him straight.

Acts 9: 9-10

And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord.”

Acts 9: 15-18

But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel:

For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.

And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.

And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.”

Peter and Paul both saw the Holy Spirit fall on believers.

Acts 10: 37-38

That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

Acts 10:44-48

“While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.”

Some say you cannot be saved unless you have the Holy Spirit. The Bible asks, ‘Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?’

Acts 19:1-7
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,

He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.

Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

And all the men were about twelve.”

There are many who are Saved and believe, who have not received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. John the Baptist, Baptized with the Baptism of Repentance.

As Christians, we should be Baptized in the Baptism of, obedience, to show the death of our old man, and the acceptance of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

Pauls writings on the Gifts of the Spirit:

1 Corinthians 12: 1.

“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.”

Apparently, seeking answers, some go to man, when we should search the Word. The giving of the Gifts of the Spirit. Notice: On the Day of Penticost, Tongues and Interpretation ere the first Gifts given. Why, they are the easiest or us to receive, and we use the Gift of Tongues as our Prayer Language.

1 Corinthians 12:8-11

“For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.”

1 Corinthians 12:27-31

Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.

And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?

Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?

But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.”

The Gift of Tongues should not be used in public Worship unless all recognize and are believers.

That is why the Love chapter is next. We must always be aware of who is around us, and be ready to explain, His Word.

1 Corinthians 14

1 Corinthians 14: 1-2

Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.”

1 Corinthians 4:4-6

He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.

I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.

Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?”

1 Corinthians 14:12-24

“Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.

For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?

For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified.

I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all:

Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

In the law it is written, With men of other tongues and other lips will I speak unto this people; and yet for all that will they not hear me, saith the Lord.

Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not: but prophesying serveth not for them that believe not, but for them which believe.

If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?

But if all prophesy, and there come in one that believeth not, or one unlearned, he is convinced of all, he is judged of all:”

1 Corinthians 14:27-29

If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret.

But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.

Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.”

1 Corinthians 14:32-33

And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

1 Corinthians 14:37-

“If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.

Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

Let all things be done decently and in order.”

Are Tongues for today? theunfetteredpreacher

Jesus asked them: “Where is your faith?” He could certainly ask us all, the same question today.

Faith, we are all given a measure, the measure that allows us to see and accept, Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Unfortunately, many refuse to act on this Faith. They prefer to trust in themselves, someone else or the government.

They do not realize they are rejecting the good and perfect gift of God.

“God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights,”

Since we are only given a measure of Faith, (the Faith to believe), it is up to us to nurture and grow our Faith,

How? By the renewing of our mind, (reading, meditating, praying and knowing His Word), that we could prove, what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

That we would come into:
“the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God,”

That we:
“might perfect that which is lacking in our faith?”
“For by grace are we saved through faith;”

“that which is lacking in our faith?” What?

Paul was so concerned, for what the Thessalonians lacked, that He spent:
“Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?”
1 Thessalonians 3:10

Which brings us to today:

Although my Faith, sometimes wavers, (lacks), I believe I was brought by God, to this little UMC, to teach them, and lead them, into all that God has to offer.

The Pastor, always listens, says he is glad for me, BUT “God didn’t give him that gift. He doesn’t need that gift. That gift only brings confusion.”

He refuses to accept that the gift of Tongues could be his own; and in so doing, tells his congragation, they don’t need it.

~ He is maybe afraid that he would not be able to control the gift of tongues if he had it.
~ He cannot seem to seperate the prayer language from public tongues and interpretation.
~ He believes God would have forced it upon him if he needed it. (He had to ask for Salvation, but thinks the Baptism of the Spirit is not a separate Spiritual Blessing).

I have told him the scriptures, but he refuses to allow Gods truth, to bless him.

I will list some scripture here, in the hopes the Lord would open eyes.

~ First Question: Who should receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirt? (The Gift of Tongues, included).

Mark 16:17
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;”

Some will argue, that verse is not in the original text it was added later. (OK, then:)

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16

Alright, you reject that scripture, how about these other witnesses?

Acts 2:4
“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

The one hundred and twenty believers, in one accord, in one place. “all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues,”

We have other witnesses:

Acts 19:6
“And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.”

Have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed? No? Here, by gosh, they spoke in tongues. (This is evidence, you can see and hear).

Acts 10:45-47
“And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God.”

“they heard them speak with tongues” Those who believe, is that you?

For the Lords sake, ask him to give the gift to you. Like with pSalvation, you know not the Spiritual Blessings until you allow the Lord to work His will in your life. (check out Deuteronomy 29:29), this is for us all to do His work).

~ Prayer language (No Interpretation) Confusion:
Do we understand what we pray, when we pray in Tongues? Are we hampered in our Faith or helped?

Selected verses from Romans 8:
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:”

“ For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”

“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

“And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

We love that “all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”

Why are we afraid to allow the Spirit to pray the will of God in our lives, we claim that is what we desire.

Selected verses from 1 Corintians 12, 14:
“Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.”

“covet earnestly the best gifts:”

“he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.”

“He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; “

I would that ye all spake with tongues but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.” (Notice switch from private prayer to public, keep the difference in mind while reading this chapter).

“Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.” (Public tongues uplifts the church, only with interpretation).

“Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret.
For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful.

What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.” (In public must have interpretation, in speech and song to bless the church).

“Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?”

“For thou verily givest thanks well, but the other is not edified. I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all: Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.”

We speak to God well, but others do not understand, so in public we need to interpret.

“Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.”

Please recognize the difference between a private prayer language and public tongues and interpretation.

“If any man speak in an unknown tongue, let it be by two, or at the most by three, and that by course; and let one interpret. But if there be no interpreter, let him keep silence in the church; and let him speak to himself, and to God.”

If no Interpretation then: “keep silence in the church and let him speak to himself, and to God.” Private prayer.

“And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.”

You do not have to speak in tongues, like salvation it is a gift, we must receive it and take it off the shelf and exercise it.

“But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. Let all things be done decently and in order.”

To my mind too many want to remain ignorant.

My question to you is: Do you long to be strong in the Lord, to have the wisdom, power and grace to do his will?

Then accept, open and experience all the gifts He has given. They are the Talents the Master has left His servants, He did not leave us a talent of speaking, playing an instument or singing.

NO, He left us His Holy Spirit, to teach, guide and comfort. Yet we refuse His Gifts. We apparently truly think He is the author of confussion. “If any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”

Do you accept the Word of God, or the Doctrine of your church?

Matthew 7:26
“And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:”

Ask the Lord for His truth. Amen.

Thanks for visiting.

‘You can have the relationship you desire with God. I desire an intimate one.’

If any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. theunfetteredpreacher

1 Corinthians 14: 38.

But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”

I heard the most ignorant Pentecost Sunday Sermon, yesterday. According to this ‘Man of God’.and he is, (a Man that loves God).

He loves the Lord and was only speaking what he understood. Unfortunately you cannot understand the Spiritual, without the Spirit.

The one hundred and twenty. Did Not Speak in Tongues, the people just heard their own language.

God didn’t need us to speak in Tongues, He already knows all languages.

1 Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Many are saved, yet do not understand the Spiritual, because they have not received the Spirit.

I was prepared to list once again all the Scriptures that prove we should be enjoying the Gifts and the Power, of the Spirit.

Unfortunately, as the Scriptures point out, even if I send my son, they will not believe. It is sadthey deny others that belief also.

Luke 11:52

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

Those who reject the blessings and knowledge of the living God, are just sad.

“If any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”

I pray for their enlightenment. Amen

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

I believed not the words: theunfetteredpreacher

I believed not the words: An older post revisited:

~ Curiosity:

The queen of Sheba heard of Solomons fame, because he was blessed of the Lord, and she came to see for herself, if it be true.
(1 Kings: 10:1)

She heard and came to see. So many of us today, hear of the great things of the Lord, but never, ever, venture close enough to see.

There is revival down the road. A church in town is growing like mad.

The Outpouring of the Spirit of God, has multitudes gathering, seeking a touch from the Lord.

Our answer:

I wish revival would happen at our church, why isn’t the Lord adding to our church? How come, Lord?

We don’t go to see… It isn’t happening in a UMC, or Baptist Church, it’s happening in that non-denominational church.

I’ll tell you what it is.

It’s all show, they cannot be preaching the true gospel, (like we are), after all we have the truth.

It’s just the excitment of the music, skits, signs and wonders… people just want to be entertained.

Really, have you gone to see why?

No, of coarse not, those people are strange, they believe the Word of God was written for today.

Do we go and question their theology to see if it’s true?

No, of coarse not, those people aren’t of our denomination. How could their doctrine be truth?

Pastors afraid of losing their flock, they talk down the growing churches…

SHAME ON YOU!

Pastor, have someone preach for you Sunday, go visit this growing church, hear the Word preached, study the Word see if it be true.

Get to know who they are Question them. Study to show thyself approved. Are they preaching the TRUE GOSPEL?

Learn from them and teach it to your flock. Ask the Lord for His direction, walk in it. Then you will see growth.

~ Curiosity Satisfied:

1 Kings: 10. 7.
“Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.”

Pastor, the Lord is working through those, who allow Him to work through them.

Are you a WHOSOEVER, do you allow Him to lead, direct and guide His people to a closer walk with Him?

Is that you?

There is a reason the Lord is working elsewhere and not in your church.

YOU WON’T LET THE LORD LEAD.

1 Kings: 10. 24.
“And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear his wisdom, which God had put in his heart.”

Multitudes flock to the Lords presence. To hear and learn of His Wisdom, not ours. It only comes to us as we walk in obedience to Him.

I know you are preaching the truth you know. If your church is not growing, maybe you need to learn more truth.

Lord, help us to let your presence flow through us. Amen

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.”

“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?

Thanks for visiting, come back soon.
Know, you are loved.
