Mat 10:32 Whosoever
confess me before men, him will I confess also before my
Father which is in heaven.
Most people think to deny the Lord is to do as Peter did, deny you know Him. The Lord stirred this Scripture
up in my Spirit and showed me that it's much more. If I confess Him with my mouth, but deny Him the right to be Lord-i.e.,
director, instructor, and controller of my life, which He alone holds in His hand, then I deny Him. If I refuse His Lordship,
and refuse to deny my flesh it's carnal ways and wants in favor of the rightful and reasonable demands of the Lord Jesus Christ
through the power of His Holy Spirit, then I deny Him. I am not to deny Him at any time. I am not to deny Him quality time.
I am not to deny Him the use of my vessel. I am not to deny Him when He stirs me up to pray. I am not to deny Him when He
deals with me about something. I am not to deny Him anything. I am not to contradict Him or His Word by the way I live my
life. It is to be HIM that lives in me in control, not me, myself and I.
He deals with us about, we need to be willing to deny ourselves but never Him. He has requirements of the vessel He dwells
in, and uses. We must yield to the Holy Spirit and let Him make us what the Lord wants us to be. We must be willing to lay
our lives down a living sacrifice for the use of the Master. IF we refuse, we deny Him.
Mat 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me
before men, him will I
also deny before my Father
which is in heaven.
Eph 5:14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead,
and Christ shall give thee light.
Eph 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
Eph 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Eph 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord
Eph 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled
with the Spirit;
I can not play church and expect to stand when the
shaking gets so bad everything that can be shaken will be. The Bible says God is angry with sin and the wicked every day.
God loves His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. But you only have to look as far as Calvary to see a public display that reveals
the depth of God's hatred for sin. Christ was the only One who could bear such wrath. How can people look at the cross and
see the suffering of our Savior there and willfully continue in sin? We have no excuse. He showed us his hatred for sin in
what His Son bore. Do not believe the doctrine of devils that you cannot live above sin. You do not have to sin everyday.
The Bible says Sin shall NOT have dominion over you (Rom 6:14). Why? Because He destroyed the works of the devil at the cross
(1 John 3:8). The only way a devil can work in your life if is if you choose not to believe and accept the Lord and His Truth.
He said you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32) Jesus Christ is the Truth, the Way and the
Life. I pray you will be blessed, but more I pray you will be convicted and provoked to draw closer to Jesus Christ,
Who Alone is our Hope of Glory. I ask you, those who are the church and I ask myself: when the Lord turns His fiery eyes toward
me, and you, does He see compassion and mercy in our heart for the lost He died for ? Does He see us on our face asking for
that which we lack so we can better serve Him? Or does He see us wasting time, with idle chit chat, in front of
the TV, or on the phone, or computer, doing meaningless things to pass the time? Has He heard the words "I'm bored" out of our
mouth or heart, when there is so much to be done in His kingdom? Has He heard that come out of our mouths and then looked
around at the suffering of this world, and the lost and hurting who need to know about Him and looked with a grieved heart
at the selfishness of one who thinks they belong to Him but don't? All all around us are lost and dying world who
desperately need to see a manifestation of HIM in those who say we belong to Him. When He comes, and I must stand before the
most powerful presence and the most pure holiness in existence, past or present, and give account, what can I possibly say?
Did I not show reverence in His house and cause others, by my example not to fear Him? Did I go my own way and try to do it
my own way at the expense of the cross and its demands? Church, what say you? I would rather face this now than then, while
there is still time to change things, wouldn't you?
