I am glad when they say to me, "Let us go to the house of the Lord" (Psalm 122:1)." It is a consolation that God has a people, brothers and sisters, God gives gifts. We thank the Lord for these days and times that He gives us because all things are drawing to an end.
We want to redeem the time, that is, to seek to do what pleases the Lord. The world has been sucked into an uproar. We are in the world, so we are drawn to it, but God sets us apart. He allows that we can't be drawn into it. Satan does things in a flashy way so that it catches the eye and draws people to him. But we find God where the world does not want to go. Jesus was born in a manger, it didn't smell good. The priests would not have wanted to be in that place. In the temple, there was the Holy Place and then the Most Holy Place, no one could enter except the high priest. But He was born in a manger.
"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the damsel shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call His name Immanuel. "(Isaiah 7:14) The Jews cannot be trinitarian because they know that there is the God of Abraham. "Therefore the holy child that will be born to you will be called the Son of God. "(Luke 1:35) God had already announced all things in advance. He had prepared so that we could be certain. "Where is the King of the Jews who has just been born? For we have seen his star in the east, and have come to worship him. "(Matthew 2:2) Only God can be worshipped.
"I can do nothing of myself: as I hear, I judge; and my judgment is righteous, because I do not seek my own will, but the will of him who sent me. "(John 5:30) "For I came down from heaven not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. "(John 6:36) In the Garden of Gethsemane, He stopped Peter from acting, for how else could the Scriptures have been fulfilled? He came to fulfil the Scriptures. "But not what I want, but what you want. "(Matthew 26:39) He who belongs to Him listens to God.
1 John 4:1-4
You belong to God. The others are worldly-minded. "Therefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord" (2 Corinthians 6:17) These people belong to Him. Do you have to identify yourself, make it clear which side you belong to?
It is impossible that you, who have recognized and received this Jesus not in your head but in your interior, should be lost. When God redeems you, it is an eternal redemption. He does not redeem you today to lose you tomorrow. He did it once and for all. The devil can fight all he wants, if God has placed this in you, the thing must manifest itself. The son of perdition showed his nature, he was never happy. He listens to the Word to always find fault. One always tries to ask a lot of questions to find a loophole and spread the fire. But a son of God is not like that. There is a purpose for which God has chosen you. He did not choose you for your perdition but so that His glory might appear. You are temples in which God must tabernacle. If we are the temple of the Living God, we must know how to keep it. I want God to baptize His temple. David wanted to build a temple for God but God did not want to because David had shed blood. God chose his son, Solomon. God had already prepared him because when he became king, he did not ask for glory, wealth but for wisdom to lead God's people. He was only interested in what pleased God. Because he asked for wisdom, he received all other things in addition. Gifts and ministries are given for the people of God. You have value in the eyes of God. When Saul was pursuing God's people, he heard "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? "(Acts 9:4) We don't waste our time. Everything we do has an impact. God is speaking today because He wants to show us what He wants from us. Solomon did not want to build the temple where he wanted to but where God wanted him to. God showed him the plans. Everything was done according to the Will of God. "But what! Does God really live on earth? Behold, the heavens and the heavens of the heavens cannot contain you; how much less this house which I have built for you! Nevertheless, O LORD my God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his supplication; hear the cry and the prayer of your servant to you this day." (1 Kings 8:27-28) "When your people go out to fight their enemy, following the way you have prescribed for them; if they pray to the LORD, looking to the city you have chosen and to the house I have built for your name, answer their prayers and their supplications from heaven, and do them right! "(1 Kings 8:44-45) "And the Lord said to him, 'I will answer your prayer and your supplication to me, and I will sanctify this house which you have built, to put my name in it forever, and my eyes and my heart will be there forever. "(1 Kings 9:3) This is what Daniel did. We must grasp the mind of God, what God wants from us.
There is no relationship with the world. "Do not love the world, nor the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him;" (1 John 2:15) We must examine ourselves. When you cooperate with the world, hell awaits you.
1 John 4:6 / John 8:47
There is a difference between the one who belongs to God and the one who belongs to the world. Your language is different. It is necessary that when people hear you, they find grace in your mouth. "Let your speech always be accompanied by grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how each one should be answered. "(Colossians 4:6) You are holy; there is no filth that can come out of your mouth. We possess all things. Money does not make us happy, it is the Word that makes us happy. The world is jealousy but we are happy. When my brother is blessed, I am blessed. God has given us brothers and sisters. The Shunamite saw this man of God passing all the time. The man of God did not ask for anything but she had the desire.
We must know God because He is your Father. When Adam hid himself, God sought him out. The Father seeks His son. When He knows you and you know Him, you know your nature. We thought we were chicks but when mother eagle came to get us, we recognized Him. God has left His throne of glory for you. Those who serve God are called servants of God. A king sends his servants for his children. They serve the king's children. What is the value of servants compared to the king's children? What good would a ministry be if there were no church? Gifts are given for the children, not for the man who has the gift or ministry. "And he gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastors and teachers, for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:11-12) "But I do not lay hold of my life for myself, as though it were precious to me, so long as I fulfil my course with joy, and the ministry which I have received from the Lord Jesus, to preach the good news of the grace of God. "(Acts 20:24) Grace is only grace to the one who accepts it. Let us have the humility to recognize the love of God. Let us have obedience. God sends ministries to speak to you, and you are hardened. "Sanctify them with your truth: your word is truth. "(John 17:17) When the inside is sanctified, the rest follows. The world must completely leave us.
Listening is paying attention to the Word of God, that is, your mind is willing to receive what is being said. Paying attention is when your whole being is put on alert like on the day of Pentecost. Their whole being was shaken and when Peter spoke, they were absorbed. "Brothers, what shall we do? (Acts 2:37) Their insides received. You are not listening in the right way because the evil spirit is still there and it does not leave.
Matthew 13:2-11 / Luke 8:9-12
We have the strength and power so that the world can no longer have power over us. This is your power: When you pay attention to the Word of God, Satan has no more power over you. When God speaks to you, it is to deliver you but you do not pay attention. Don't waste your time because hell is waiting.
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. "(Psalm 119:105) When you do this, demons cannot stay because light drives out darkness.
1 John 4:4-6
If God is in me, the world can have no place. He sanctifies everything in me.
John 8:47 / John 8:42-44
Listening is paying attention, believing in the Lord and obeying. When you listen to the Word of God, God reveals His kingdom to you. You always come out defeated because you don't listen. The demons remain attached. "(John 8:47) God speaks to keep us in obedience to His Word. This is the time when we must really pay attention to the Word of God. There is no fellowship between us and the world. It is a total separation.
