There will come a day when we will be in the reality of His promise! You may doubt, but it is certain. "For I would not have you ignorant of this mystery, brethren, lest you should think yourselves wise, that a part of Israel is fallen into hardness, until the whole of the Gentiles be entered." (Romans 11:25) No one can miss. He is waiting for it to come to pass. He intercedes for you, that you may reach the goal.
Because we are on earth, then there is still hope. When you belong to Him, He puts in you the thing that allows you to stand in the face of adversity. There can be no mixture between the wicked and the righteous. From the beginning, God has separated the light from the darkness. We are the light of the world so the separation must take place. "What agreement is there between Christ and Belial? Or what part has the faithful with the unfaithful?" (2 Corinthians 6:15) Even when we falter, there is something in us that makes us rise again. We have hope that tomorrow will be a better day. We have joy because we know that God cares and that He will act.
1 Peter 1:1-5
We have an inheritance reserved for us. We do not waste our time, there will be a reward. Every thing you do (even a glass of water), you will always have the reward. God's goal is to bring you to obedience.
A man had 2 sons. The father sent the 2 sons to work in the fields. The first one did so eagerly but the second one had something else to do first. While going on the way, the first one did not go but the second one, on the way, changed his way and went to the field. Which of the two did the will of the father?
God shows us the future. The elders died in faith, God showed them what was to come and they longed for it. As Joseph was able to say, "I am going to die! But God will visit you, and he will bring you up from this land to the land that he swore to give to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (Genesis 50:24) When Joseph's sons came to Jacob, Jacob could not see well. To help him, Joseph placed his children but Jacob crossed his arms. God does not deal with the sons of the evil one, but only with the sons of God. "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." (Matthew 15: 24) It is well that He owned them before!
John 17:11-12 / John 17:6
One must be a son of God to bear the name of God. The son of perdition was a son of the evil one.
1 Peter 1:2
"For those whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be like his Son, so that his Son might be the firstborn among many brothers. (Romans 8:29) The sons of the evil one are not included in this. "For by one offering he has perfected forever those who are sanctified." (Hebrews 10:14) He sanctifies those who are His. "Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth. (John 17:17) As a son of God, God reveals His mind to you. We are sanctified because we must return to our condition. "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts! (Isaiah 6:3)
A son of God does not disturb others. When he passes somewhere, he leaves peace. If he brings trouble, it is because the evil one has inserted himself. "Grace and peace be multiplied to you! (1 Peter 1:2) We are ambassadors for Christ. Wherever we go, we must leave the fragrance and the perfume of Christ. God sanctifies body, soul and spirit. We have no record of remembering the evil of others. I forgive, I forget and I am at peace. "You shall be holy, for I am holy." (1 Peter 1:16) This is not a holiness that we manufacture because that is religion. I cannot sanctify myself; He who is holy must come into me to sanctify me. "That he may present the church glorious, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but holy and without blemish. (Ephesians 5:27)
The Bride is a part of Himself. You don't have to make any effort. Since you belong to Him, it is in you. How can we stand in His presence if we do not have the same nature? Jesus has never abandoned the one who clings to Him. Everything you do for the glory of God, He remembers. You are His, you can't resist. When you feel pressured, you don't belong to Him.
Son of rebellion is when you rebel against the Word. When you become your own interpreter, your own preacher. "For there will come a time when men will not endure sound doctrine, but, itching to hear pleasant things, will give themselves a multitude of teachers according to their own desires" (2 Timothy 4:3). We do not seek our desire but the will of God. How can you trust your thoughts? We are in the spiritual realm, I must trust God alone! "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord." (Isaiah 55:8) "But we have the mind of Christ." (1 Corinthians 2:16) God has taught you and instructed you, you are wiser than the wise of this world.
It is no longer about my life but about a new life in Christ. If what is within you is of God, then it is impossible for you to be disobedient to the Word of God because we are the Bride-Word. We were in Him before the foundation of the world and we must return to Him. When the Word of God rebukes you then you glorify the Lord.
1 Peter 1:2
When you are sanctified, it is the uprooting, the cleaning. It takes away everything that is not of God. You can't be eternal if you weren't in God. If we were in Him, then we are the Word. The attributes of God manifested on earth. The Word brings the Bride back to the faith of our fathers. We cannot argue with the Word. That is why we must be converted. When you are converted, there is no more problem with it. "As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need to be taught; but as his anointing teaches you all things, and is true and not a lie, remain in him according to the teachings he has given you. (1 John 2:27) "For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Christ to you Gentiles..." (Ephesians 3:1) Do you also want to become his prisoner? To be a prisoner of Christ to do only what pleases Him.
When God takes you out of these things (of the world), you cannot and will not go back in. God is able to change the skin of a leopard and give straw to the lions.
