‘If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. I will give peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and none will make you afraid; I will rid the land of evil beasts, and the sword will not go through your land. You will chase your enemies, and they shall fall by the sword before you. Five of you shall chase a hundred, and a hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight; your enemies shall fall by the sword before you. ‘For I will look on you favorably and make you fruitful, multiply you and confirm My covenant with you. You shall eat the old harvest, and clear out the old because of the new. I will set My tabernacle among you, and My soul shall not abhor you. I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be My people. Leviticus 26:5-12
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
How can you walk in the victories and blessings of God if you don’t walk in His statues and keep His commandments and perform them by the Spirit of the Lord? You cannot, especially if you are possessed or influenced by doctrine of demons or men! God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that His people ask, pray or think. If He is not doing it for them it is not His fault but theirs. It’s they who have to change since God doesn’t change as with Him there is no variation or shadow of turning. His word is unchanging:
“But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: “Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. “Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. “Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. “Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. “The LORD will send on you cursing, confusion, and rebuke in all that you set your hand to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, because of the wickedness of your doings in which you have forsaken Me. Deuteronomy 28:15-20
Men don’t consider the fact that if their thinking doesn’t line of with God’s thinking, then He is not responsible for what they think or whatever they will reap as a result of faulty thinking. God’s honors His word to them only if they obey His word and walk in it. His word is unchanging:
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. “As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. John 15:1-9
Yes, if anyone does not abide in Christ, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. But if anyone abides in Him, and His words abide in them, they will ask what they desire, and it shall be done for them. By this the Father is glorified, when they bear much fruit and prove to be Jesus’ disciples. God’s word is unchanging:
“For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” Matthew 12:50
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. John 4:34
“I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me. John 5:30
“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. “For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. John 6:37-38
Being a religionist and not doing the will of the Father is a complete waste of time, effort and live. To be a Christian is to be like Jesus. And to be like Jesus is to seek and do the will of the Father above all things. God’s word is unchanging:
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:21-23
I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves; I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk upright. ‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. I will set My face against you, and you shall be defeated by your enemies. Those who hate you shall reign over you, and you shall flee when no one pursues you. ‘And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. I will break the pride of your power; I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze. And your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its produce, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit. Deuteronomy 26:13-20
Jesus Christ, not Apostle Paul, the Pope, Pastor, Preacher or others, is the Lamb of God who took away the sin of the world and the Baptizer with the Holy Spirit. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. He became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the message while others are only messengers. While other bear witness of Light which gives light to every man coming into the world, He is Life Himself and is the One who gives water to the thirsty ones! His word is unchanging:
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. John 7:37-39
And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. Mark 2:27
God never intended for men to elevate the words of men including Apostle Paul’s, the Pope, Pastor or Preacher above the words and teachings of Jesus or to be cultishly followed and obeyed. God had intended and does intend only the Holy Spirit to be the Chief Guide, Spirit of Truth, Counselor, Teacher and everything that any person needs and not others whoever they might be! God intended for man to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God or is made real by Him, the Rhema word, and not the Logos word.
The Logos word is yesterday’s manna and cannot be applicable for a specific need or situation while the Rhema word can because it’s given and made real by the Holy Spirit who is the other Christ, the Helper, the Guide, the Spirit of Truth, and all that Christ was to His disciples. Men are saved not based on the words of mortal men but on the word of Jesus who told all:
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” Matthew 7:21-27
It is those who do the will of the Father in heaven are the saved one and not the presumptuous ones who are hearers only. Those who hear the sayings of Jesus and do them are wise men who build their house on the rock and it doesn’t fall in the storms of life because it was founded on the Rock, Christ. All others are foolish ones who build their house on the sand of nothing and the storms of life will cause it to fall and great will be its fall!
The Holy Spirit who inspired and wrote the bible is still alive today and He can and does inspire anybody with His truths, His knowledge and His ways. We don’t need men but we do need the Holy Spirit and God the Father and God the Son. Christians should stop being carnal and talking and thinking about mere mortal men, even dead men, but should talk and think about and have the fellowship of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Men come and go but God is alive and well and His word is unchanging:
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:1-11
The bible doesn’t say Let this mind be in you which was also in Apostle James? No, it says “this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. At the name of Jesus, not others, every knee should bow, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Jesus Christ alone is to be worship and no others. We are to have no other gods be it Apostle Paul, the Pope, the Pastor or the Preacher. God’s word is unchanging:
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. “He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21:6-8
“He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.” “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. Revelation 22:11-17
