Hold fast to faith
We are living in some troublesome times and no matter what side of the isle you are on if you don't think this is troublesome then look around. When we are as divided as we are right now then it is troublesome. As God's children, we are to unite in Him. We are to stand apart from the world. And no matter what I trust Jesus and know that no matter HE will give me peace and joy through it all. Now let's take a look at Hebrews 3:1-15. When I go on Facebook live, when I write on this website, I am truly getting into God's Word and truly seeking to find God and live for Him and Him alone. And yes, I know that following Christ will cost. I don't do all the good things because while there are good things, no great things, living for Christ, in an evil world there are bad things that will come against me. I know this and I fully accept that responsibility. I don't take teaching with a light heart. It is with heavy prayer and listening to the Holy Spirit that I write and speak. I just want to see each and everyone of you in heaven and take out the lies that has been taught since time began. We need to remember Satan has been in this world a lot longer than any of us and He knows God. 1- Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession, Jesus Christ, 2- who was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was faithful in all His house. Now look at verse one and look at what we are called. We are called holy, partakers of HEAVENLY CALLING, we are to look to Jesus and imitate Him. Yes, He was kind but He didn't waver even in the face of death, from what God sent Him to do. Rise Up Children of God. 3- For this One has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, in as much as He who built the house has more honor than the house. 4- For every house is built by someone but He who built all things is God. 5- And Moses indeed was faithful in all His house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which would be spoken afterward. We are still to look at what Moses taught the Israelites, that is our foundation for living and Jesus takes it a bit further and adds to the house. But Jesus did not tear down the house, He built it up. Rise Up Children of God. 6-But Christ as a Son, over His own house, whose house IF we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm to the end. Christ is over the house. He is who we turn to. And there is an IF. We have to stand on The Rock and have confidence in knowing and applying God's Word to our lives until the very end. Rise Up Children of God. 7- Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today IF you will hear His voice: 8- Do not harden your hearts in the rebellion. In the day of trial in the wilderness. The Holy Spirit is talking to you and to me. Will you hear Jesus' voice? It also says do not harden your heart. You better listen closely because He has spoken and He will whisper to you and you have to be seeking and listening to hear. 9- Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, And saw My works forty years. 10- Therefore I was angry with that generation. And said, 'They always go astray in their heart. And they have not known My ways. 11- So I swore in My wrath. They shall not enter MY rest. We have failed to listen to God for generations. We have let our hearts be strayed from God. We do not know the ways of God. We think we know but do we truly? And God said I send MY wrath and we shall not enter HIS rest. Guys these are clear warnings for all that do and do not follow Jesus Christ. Rise up Children of God. 12- BEWARE, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13- but exhort one another daily, while it is called TODAY, lets any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. Here it is clear that we can stand on The Rock, Jesus Christ and not have evil in our hearts. We must be listening or we will be deceived. We must build each other up, TODAY!!! Rise up Children of God. 14- For we have become partakers of Christ IF we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15- while it is said, 'TODAY IF you will hear His voice. Do NOT harden your hearts as in the rebellion. Look up child. Hear His voice today. Put on your Armor of God and Rise UP Children of God. If we do not stand now, will Jesus stand for us in the presence of God?
