"We know, moreover, that all things work together for the good of those who love God, those who are called according to his purpose. "(Romans 8:28) We have not been asked to understand but to believe and trust God. One day we will understand. "Man will not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. "(Matthew 4:4)
Our physical body needs to eat, but our spiritual body needs to eat even more. We must always pay attention to the Word. God did not give His Word for nothing. He knew that confusion was coming, but He does not want man to be ignorant. In spite of this layer of darkness in the world, God has provided that there is always Light. "In the beginning God created..." (Genesis 1:1)
God created all things, and every thing has its importance. We are trying to make you believe that man is descended from the ape according to DARWIN's theory of evolution. If there really is evolution, the ape has straightened himself up to become upright to come to man. But if there is evolution, this evolution must continue, it cannot stop at man. Jesus teaches us with such wisdom and humility. Just believe that the Lord is capable. "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. "(1 Corinthians 3:19) "Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap, nor gather into barns; and your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they are? "(Matthew 6:26) You who have faith! The natural man can look at nature, nature teaches us. Before winter comes, the sap goes down to the roots. Winter is death. If nature teaches us to prepare ourselves before these events, how should we act? Everything you eat or drink has an effect on your body. It is not God who destroys the world but what man has chosen. God did not create sodas but water. Water is good for the body but not soda. We want good spiritual food that provides good spiritual health. We cannot eat just anything! "Be careful that no one seduces you. "(Matthew 24:4) When the good seed was sown in the field, it was not left alone. "Beloved, I wish you to prosper in all things and be healthy, as the state of your soul prospers. "(3 John 1:2) But the enemy does not want you to prosper. "Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he will devour. "(1 Peter 5:8) So we must be demanding with what we receive.
God's thought is not to will but to make it so. So it is not "Willing" but "Watching". That is the exact thought of God.
Here is the same thing. What is written does not conform to the Holy Scriptures. A son of God cannot act like this, but he always has hope. The Louis Second version is totally different from the Darby version. We need to receive spiritual nourishment according to the Scriptures.
What is the time that is near? We need to grasp the things of God in a spiritual way. "It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. "(John 6:63) At Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down, the hearts of those who were there were deeply touched. All who speak of God do not speak of God. To speak of God, you must be a witness of God, that you are a part of it.
Acts 1:9-11 and 21-22
We needed real witnesses. The Lord wants to take care of those who belong to him. He is jealous, He takes care of His sheep. "When he has brought out all his own sheep, he walks before them; and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. They will not follow a stranger; but they will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers. "(John 10:4-5) "... I will build my church ...". (Matthew 16:18) "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 building up of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:11-12) He is the one who chooses.
"Preach the word, insist on every occasion, favorable or unfavorable, rebuke, censure, exhort, with all gentleness and instruction. For there will come a time when men will not endure sound doctrine" (2 Timothy 4:2-3). "I have given them your word, and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. "(John 17:14) "Sanctify them with your truth: your word is the truth. "(John 17:17) The devil always fights the Truth. God Himself takes care of His sheep. When God created Adam, He placed him in the Garden of Eden. He gave him everything he needed. Adam simply had to follow the Word of God. As long as he was in obedience to the Word of God, there was no worries. He had not even thought about the woman, but it was God who saw that it was good for Adam to have a wife. God took care of everything for Adam. Adam was really happy. Before the thought came, God had already provided. God is always the same. If we can simply take care of his Word, God takes care of us. When God chooses, let Him do His work. "Here is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. "(John 1:29) If He takes away, Satan can do all his work, it is null and void. God has found the ransom. If a possessed person does not recognize that he has demons, you can fast, pray for him, the demons will not go away. You have to desire. When you get baptized, you need repentance, that is, the desire to give up all these things to follow Christ. You always seek to justify sin, you collaborate with demons. You have to recognize that this is not good. "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. "(Acts 2:38) When you are baptized, it means you are dead. A woman is bound to a man as long as the man is alive. Satan was your husband, but when you die to yourselves! When you enter the waters, you will die to yourself, but you do not stay in the water? You go out again to enter into Christ. You have a new husband. You are baptized in Him and therefore married to Him. Do you think you're going to go to heaven in this state? Sanctify them with your truth: your word is the truth. "(John 17:17) We must have fellowship. Not with everyone, otherwise God would never have said, "Come out from among them, and separate" (2 Corinthians 6:17). It is God who chooses the men He sends. What God does, man cannot understand. When God came in the flesh to the earth, He was called Beelzebub. As long as you have something in you that belongs to the world, the day you leave, the world will come with you. Satan cannot act without a body. He injects thoughts and then acts in you. He can do his work of destruction.
What can the world do to us? If you have received salvation then you have freedom in your heart. We are waiting for the city of which God is the architect. We suffer here on earth, but we have a home. This is the time of the coming of the Lord.
You cannot have the world and Jesus.
Even if the situation becomes more difficult, He is a help that is never lacking. When you hold on to God, you stay at peace. When you look away from Him, then trouble comes. Satan wants to put thoughts in your head so that you can have hatred, but God tells us to love each other fervently. If you do not receive and listen to the Word of God, how can you be sanctified?
We are far from the gospel of prosperity. Satan is cunning. "Seek peace with all, and sanctification, without which no one will see the Lord. "(Hebrews 12:14) Aaron was able to enter the Most Holy Place because he was dressed as God had commanded. He was not dressed as he wanted, but as God had asked. The Word of God must be preached for the people to be sanctified. People are brought to an artificial sanctification. Do this or do that, don't do this or do that, but it is useless. The Word of God can never put a brother or sister into slavery, for He has come to free the captives.
You apply yourself to tithes, offerings, ... but God cares about souls. You always cling to "Women, be submissive" so you practice that, you apply yourself to that. But God doesn't only speak of the wife, He also speaks of the husband. You too, husbands, submit to the Word of God, to your pastor too. Preachers bring a man, a prophet, Moses or Brother Branham, but you only need Jesus Christ. He has the power to change your lives. "I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you" (Ezekiel 36:26). This is the work of God's Word in you. When you receive it, it produces an action in you. The New Spirit is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ, the seed of life, the One who gives meaning to the Word. Sanctification does not come from me but comes through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Sanctification comes by accepting the offering, the blood of Jesus Christ.
We cannot sanctify ourselves. There is only one way, one direction: "I am the way, the truth, and the life. "(John 14:6) It is God who seeks His sheep and places them where He wants them.
When the cup is cleansed and the Holy Spirit is in it, how can you act outside the Word of God? For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. "(Romans 8:14) We don't need the outside, but we need the inside first. A woman who wants to put on pants and who comes to the church in a skirt because one forced her, she is hypocritical. It is the interior which must initially change. Once the heart is changed, then the outside will change. The Pharisees of yesterday are the branhamists of today.
