4 types of believers :

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.

How big is your God?

We all know that Jesus told Nicodemus that you must be born again. He also said do not marvel that I say you must be born again.

To be born again, we must believe in our hearts and confess with our  mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.

This means we believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, died on the cross, and rose again and is sitting at the right hand of the Father to intercede  for us.

Peter says:
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

If you believe these simple statements then I can have fellowship with you as a Christian, as a child of God.

It is the Word of God, (Jesus is the Word), that saves us and lives and abides forever within us.

Now I have a “billism” for you:   A billism is something  in the word that may not be taught as written.

As a Christian I believe we must be born again.

We also find Paul answering the jailers question of  what must I do to be saved in this way:

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

Here we have an added wrinkle. ..and thy house.  Where did this come from.  It is not new, Noahs family was saved and we have no knowledge of their faith.

In 1 Corinthians 7 it states:
“The unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.

For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?”

What happened to you must be born again?

When we look in Deuteronomy we find the Hebrews ordered not to destroy certain peoples:

“Ye are to pass through the coast of your brethren the children of Esau, which dwell in Seir; and they shall be afraid of you: take ye good heed unto yourselves therefore:   Meddle not with them; for I will not give you of their land, no, not so much as a foot breadth; because I have given mount Seir unto Esau for a possession.

Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession.

” Thou art to pass over through Ar, the coast of Moab, this day:   And when thou comest nigh over against the children of Ammon, distress them not, nor meddle with them: for I will not give thee of the land of the children of Ammon any possession; because I have given it unto the children of Lot for a possession.”

We see instances of the Lord saving peoples because of the love of someone else.

So take heart if you have unsaved loved ones.  Take a page from Abrahams book.  Intercede on their behalf untill you have the peace that the Lord has heard you.

We have biblical evidence of that Gods love is bigger than our beliefs….it is as big as His Word.

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

” According to your faith be it unto you.”

Enough, go, possess the land:


The people had spent two years in the desert.  They had crossed the red sea, built the Tabernacle of the Lord.  Heard the Law, been given the Ten Commandments.   Understood the promise of the Lord.   When the Lord spoke to them:

“Ye have dwelt long enough in this mount:   Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the Amorites,  Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.”

The promise is for you, right now, you’ve waited long enough, go and possess the land.  So what did they do?  Go possess the land?

Of course not,  they sent in spies first, you know, to search out the way to go.   If they had only believed and obeyed the Lord,  they would have saved themselves 38 more years of getting nowhere fast.

He could be speaking to us today.  The promise is ours, right now, today, for whosoever will.  

We have been long enough in this world.  Go, separate yourselves from the masses,  possess the promise.

Begin eternity today, study the Word,  Pray, Praise learn to submit yourself to God, Worship.  Discover the Peace that passes understanding,  the Joy unspeakable and full of Glory,  find your refuge, your fortress, your God.  In Him can you trust.

The answers we need are found in the Creator (Elohim, Jesus),  not the creation.  Quit looking to people to save, help, provide or comfort you.

If Noah found grace (Salvation ) in the eyes of the Lord, (Jehovah, the Father),  if he was just and perfect in his generation,  it was because he walked with God.  (Elohim,  Jesus ).

We need to Walk with Jesus.  This is why we were Saved from sin and death.  It is what the Lord desires, a people who recognize and understand that He is.  

He is everything I desire. He is everything I need.  All I want is to know Him. To know He is and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.

We must seek the Lord while He may be found.   

Set our face like flint towards the Lord.

Call upon Him while He is near.

He will answer and show us great and mighty things.

I am ready for some great and mighty things to happen.  If I could only conquer that evil heart of unbelief that kept the Hebrews from entering the promise.  That has kept me from praying and seeing the Power of God in my life and Church.

If we only believed,  Jesus said we could and would do mighty things.  That signs would follow.  There is something wrong with the way we believe.

The church,  Gods people are not victorious, conquerors,  the masters of our faith.   We don’t really believe the promise because we don’t have the relationship.

Know this:  He will keep us in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.   I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

The Lord had them 40 years in the wilderness: so thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

He is looking for the same things in us today:  Are we humble?  Has He proved us, do we know what is in our hearts?   Will we keep His commandments,  are we obedient children?

Lord help me to be the man you have called me to be.  I believe Lord,  help my unbelief.
