We want to be like Jesus and enter His presence. " But the hour is coming, and has already come, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for these are the worshippers whom the Father requires (John 4:23). " So we need to know what God wants from us to be true worshippers.
God has given us everything so that we can walk and be as He wants. The High Priest did not dress in any way to enter the Most Holy Place, but it was God who gave the instructions on how to dress, who gave the clothing. God does the same with us. He is our God and our Father. We are begotten of Him and therefore born of Him. If we approach Him as He wants us to, then we know that He is listening to us. "Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples. "(Luke 11:1) This was the desire of the disciples, they wanted to be accepted by God. We want God to do something, to approve us. How can I be sure that God is with me and hears me? Does what I am doing please the Lord because we want a relationship with God.
When a man stands in the pulpit to preach the Word of God, know that he will be judged by what he has said and preached. When you walk with God and have to serve God, beware of evil thoughts and having something against someone! "Why do you see the mote that is in your brother's eye, and do not see the beam that is in your eye? "(Matthew 7:3) We always think we are stronger, better. This is pride. In order for the demons to leave, you must recognize your condition. What made Lucifer fall was pride. For the Holy Spirit to enter a heart, you must first agree to receive Him. Before you are sealed with the Holy Spirit, you must go through sanctification. God reproves you and cleanses you. You cannot dispute the Word of God when you are reproved. This is the nature of Cain. See what seed you are of? The seed of the evil one is very religious. Jesus Himself called them "child of hell". But Abel was always gentle. Feelings can come, bad thoughts can come but then the Holy Spirit comes and then you have love for the person and you pray for the good of that person. God wants to remove hypocrisy. If we were true, the fragrance of Jesus Christ would be there. You know that you cannot have bad thoughts towards your brother but when they come, you let them pass. But you have the ability to reject, to refuse the thought. You think you have the thought of God but God does not give you a gift to break the person but to help that person. Always pure thoughts and heart. We can feel the presence of God, be well but your inside has not been touched. God wants your inside. When God enters a heart, that person becomes in love with everyone. But when the carnal part comes back, then the bad thoughts come back.
We all call Him Lord because we recognize His authority. We have to examine ourselves. We think God loves us for it but God does not feel the way we do. He does not need this. Not everyone will see God. Gifts are good. We are in an Age of confusion. "For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and they shall show great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if it were possible, even the elect. "(Matthew 24:24) These people do not even invoke the trinity but say "in your name". "But if any angel from heaven should preach any other gospel than that which we have preached to you, let him be accursed. "(Galatians 1:8) Paul knew where he stood. "They shall all be taught of God. "(John 6:45)
It is not possible to deceive the elect because God has placed something in you that is truth. Falsehoods cannot pass into a son of God. When God chose you, if you are God's chosen ones, He must have done something within you. Otherwise, how can you recognize the voice of the good shepherd? If you don't have it, how will you be led? You feel that Hand leading you, it is the Hand of God. "They will all be taught of God. " (John 6:45) Jesus is speaking here in the past tense "heard the Father," it is not about the present because before the world was, you were taught by God. Your interior is not empty. God has taken precautions so that we do not fail. You do not become but you have always been a son of God. If you become, you can still change but someone who has always been, you cannot change. We can't just leave any way. When the Word is preached, God watches how you receive it. We are not looking for a man but we want Jesus. "In him God chose us before the foundation of the world" (Ephesians 1:4). Don't come to make presence, but be true, participants. When someone comes to talk to you about God, test him. You can't receive just anything: a chosen one never discusses the Scriptures. It is like a sheep that is lost in the dark. But at some point, she hears the voice of her shepherd. She has not seen him yet, but she is already in joy because she knows that she will return to the sheepfold. She is reassured, it is an explosion of joy. The wolves around cannot rejoice at the voice of the Shepherd, but the sheep rejoices.
Every denomination has its Jesus, but which Jesus have you received? You must receive the True Jesus to be in the true one. It's all about the start! We do not preach a man but we preach Jesus Christ. When I know that what I am doing is the Will of God, then I can leave in peace. Let us not seek to please men but to please God. "When I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. I kept those whom you gave me, and not one of them was lost, except the son of perdition, so that the scripture might be fulfilled. "(John 17:12) Religion blinds you, and you think you are going to heaven like this? "I tell you, on that night, two people will be in bed together, one will be taken and the other left" (Luke 17:34). We must have discernment in the things of God. Gifts can work on someone in one way or another. "If a prophet or dreamer arises in your midst and tells you of a sign or wonder, and the sign or wonder he has spoken of is fulfilled, saying, 'Let us go after other gods, gods you do not know, and let us serve them. You shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer, for the Lord your God is testing you to see if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. "(Deuteronomy 13:1-3) God's people who have been instructed must know their God, they must not walk with emotions. "We will obey you completely, as we obeyed Moses. Only may the Lord your God be with you, as he was with Moses! "(Joshua 1:17) What do we do with the gifts we have? We always target the denominations, but this happens to those who say they have received the Light. It is not the miracles that save you but the Word of God. "When the Comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who comes from the Father, he will testify about me" (John 15:26). As long as the Holy Spirit is there, Satan can do nothing. "I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. "(Matthew 16:18) "He who is of God hears the words of God; you do not hear, because you are not of God. "(John 8:47) God is not in the trend but in the Word of God. If all those who say they have received the baptism in the Holy Spirit have received it, they would not be doing so. If you have the Holy Spirit, you will always return to the Word of God. God always fulfils the Scriptures. God comes for his Word so if you are sent from God, you must lead me in the Word of God. In the house of the Lord, the Holy Spirit must speak through his Word. The brochures, read them at home. Depth calls for depth. Only those who do the Will of the Father will go to heaven. But what is the Will of the Father?
Jesus was a man to be stoned because He was against Moses. On the mountain of transfiguration, there were Elijah and Moses, but after that there was only Jesus. "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; listen to him! "(Matthew 17:5) When Jesus spoke, He spoke with authority.
Jesus knew, He was sure and certain of what He was saying. The scribes were trying to please the crowd so they didn't know how to speak. But Jesus knew what He was saying. Moses was a servant of God but what did the Pharisees do with him? They made Moses like God. Likewise, the Branhamists make Branham God. In the rapture, only Christians will leave. No branhamists, mormons or others.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
It is the Body of Christ that will leave. If Christ is the Word then the Body is the Word. A Christian is like the teacher because they have the same spirit. "For we were all baptized into one Spirit, into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink into one Spirit. "(1 Corinthians 12:13) "...that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, so that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. "(John 17:21) The head of the Body is Christ Himself. We are not fighting against a brother or sister but against demons.
I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; now I leave the world and go to the Father" (John 16:28). In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. "(John 1:1) If He is the Son of God, He must have a Father. He was in His role as Son of God, that is, as Saviour. This is the same God who takes on a role to manifest His attributes. We come from a glorious place because we were in Christ i.e. in God. We are therefore pilgrims on this earth. With all that is going on today, what are you going to rely on? Money, children, ... "For dust you are, and to dust you shall return. (Genesis 3:19) "Vanity of vanities," says Ecclesiastes, "vanity of vanities, all is vanity. "(Ecclesiastes 1:2) Stop the useless things! We must fight to be ready to go to the rapture. You are fighting for secondary things. Fight to be in Christ. If I am in Christ, I have everything. Even if I leave, God will watch over my descendants. We must be in the Body of Christ. First Christ. When I have Christ then I can take care of the other things. "Seek first the kingdom and the righteousness of God, and all these things will be added to you. "(Matthew 6:33) "If God is for us, who will be against us?" (Romans 8:31) This is what Satan fears.
"For my flesh is indeed food, and my blood is indeed drink. He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. "(John 6:55-56) Jesus never explained this. It was forbidden to drink the blood of animals according to the law of Moses, let alone human blood. But Jesus was more than Moses. "The Lord your God will raise up a prophet like me from among you, from among your brothers, and you shall listen to him. "(Deuteronomy 18:15) They did not pay attention to this. They judged Jesus according to Moses but religion blinded them. They had more than Moses before them.
Some say this angel is W. Branham. Religion blinds. The branhamists see Branham everywhere. The Holy Spirit always continues to act to bring us back always in the Holy Scriptures.
No one can ever say that he has never heard. The Word is preached for all to hear. This is for your judgment. With the adulterous woman, the Pharisees wanted nothing to do with Jesus but why did they bring her to him? Death had to be there but by bringing her to Jesus, she got life. Barabbas could not die because Jesus was there. He came to free the captives. We need to know this Man from Galilee. We need his Spirit in us. God is special. The best life God has seen for you is a life of trial because trial is "more precious than perishable gold" (1 Peter 1:7) When God loves you, He puts you through trial. Trials bring us closer to God, make us grow in prayer. We look at things wrong. We are in this body but we need to focus on the spiritual realm. No matter how big the trial, God has given you faith. "For it is by grace you are saved, through faith. And that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God. "(Ephesians 2:8) In whatever circumstances you go through, nothing can discourage you. Faith makes you look at everything as possible.
The Will of God is that whoever sees the Son, that is, I must believe in the Son. "For I did not think to know anything among you except Jesus Christ, and Jesus Christ crucified. "(1 Corinthians 2:2) In Laodicea there may be many miracles but where is Christ? He is at the door. I can leave in peace, for I know that what I have preached is the truth because God has shown it to me and given it to me. Those who believed what I preached, will come in. Paul did not preach Moses but Jesus Christ. We must do the Will of God in order to have the assurance of seeing Him. God is positioning us, let's keep the position that God has given us. When David went to get the ark, they were overjoyed. But when the ark stumbled, Uzzah put his hand out and died. We must always examine ourselves against the Scriptures. The ark was to be carried by the Levites. Today too, not everyone can carry the ark. He gave Levites. "You are the heads of the families of the Levites; sanctify yourselves, you and your brothers, and bring up the ark of the Lord, the God of Israel, to the place which I have prepared for it. Because you were not there the first time, the LORD our God struck us; for we did not seek him according to the law. "(1 Chronicles 15:12-13) Preach what God has given you. If He has not given you anything, then shut up! God speaks to us so that branhamism comes out. They have the gifts but not the Spirit. You can have the fruits but not the tree. If we have the tree then we are sure that at the marked times the fruits will be. Your fruits are attached to what and to whom? God did not put the emphasis on the gifts but on the Word. Falsehood does not come from outside but from within. "I know that after my departure cruel wolves will come among you and will not spare the flock, and that men will arise from among you who will teach evil things, to draw away the disciples after them. "(Acts 20:29-30)
Flee from men, return to God. What are you building on?" For the Lord, the Lord is the rock of the ages. "(Isaiah 26:4) "For they drank from a spiritual rock that followed them, and that rock was Christ. "(1 Corinthians 10:4) When the temple was rebuilt, it was built on the old foundation. According to the grace of God which was given to me, I laid the foundation as a wise architect, and another builds on it" (1 Corinthians 3:1). " Jesus Christ is the cornerstone. Let's get back to the point. This building in which God is to tabernacle cannot have any other foundation than the Word of God. There is a tribe in Israel that was cut off because of idolatry. If God did this with them, how will He do it with you who are idolaters? "You were built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the cornerstone. "(Ephesians 2:20) When you receive and believe in Jesus Christ, you receive eternal life. "We do not preach ourselves; we preach Jesus Christ the Lord, and we call ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. "(2 Corinthians 4:5) You will be judged severely for hearing the truth and closing your hearts! And Jesus commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he was appointed by God to judge the living and the dead "(Acts 10:42)." Preach the word, insist on every occasion, whether favorable or not, rebuke, censure, exhort, with all gentleness and instruction. For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but, itching to hear pleasant things, will give themselves many teachers according to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will be turned to fables. "(2 Timothy 4:2-4) The Word is Jesus Christ. God wants Him to be your doctor. If God does not break your heart, then God can do nothing. The Word is a hammer. How can the Holy Spirit come when you have idols? What is the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is a seal of God. Only God can seal. When you are sealed, it means that you belong to Him. No demon can get to you. What belongs to God for God to put his seal? What belongs to God is His Word. God cannot seal anything but Himself.
There is a difference between the anointing in the Spirit and the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. When you receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, you always come back to the Scriptures. Demons can imitate many things but they cannot imitate love.
