PRE-AMBLE by Robert
In 1989, the Lord touched me through the Holy Spirit to serve as a Watchman to hear His warnings and disperse them among His flock. My acceptance of this responsibility was not taken without a great amount of prayer and meditation. I recognized that along with this request was attached the mantle of a teacher, if I acknowledged the one I was also taking the responsibilities of guiding those who would hear or read my offerings and warnings as given. I did not take this request lightly as it meant not only was I responsible for my walk with Yeshua now I was taking on the responsibility of correctly guiding those who would heed those warnings and make the changes to draw closer to Yeshua in preparation for Eternity. I researched the Scriptures prayed and meditated for well over a year before I made my final decision.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
As an example of how the Lord works I was under His thumb to stop procrastinating, I realized The Lord was not forcing me His action was for me to understand that with the Holy Spirit I would overcome my anxiety and appreciate the guidance and discernment being offered to move forward. The Holy Spirit showed the warnings would not be a cause of the Lord’s flock making a mistake or potentially causing them to stumble. The Holy Spirit revealed I needed to let my faith guide me in recognizing and understanding it will be the Holy Spirit communicating directly and teaching me how to discern. My sole responsibility would be to disseminate the messages as received and let the Lord’s children determine what their actions would be from there.
The writings are warnings given to me through the Holy Spirit for evaluation of your position in your life’s journey by gathering as much information and detail about your personal walk with Yeshua in preparation for Eternity as possible. I pray you will then make the corrections necessary to draw closer to Yeshua in this preparation for your time in Eternity.
The title of this article “WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE”, I believe came about through a message revealed several weeks ago: “a multitude of God’s children remain within a rebellious house and know not what they are doing or why.” The Holy Spirit revealed that multitudes believed they are walking with him but showed they are in a delusion and have given over to a false spirit and have set aside the warnings, musings, and most importantly discernment.“
Strangely, “WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE” is I believe how the Holy Spirit is defining his presence and workings with us so we can achieve our final goal of being prepared and understanding what our time in Eternity could or will hold for us.
I firmly believe the latter part of my earlier statement is the real purpose of our being here. Preparing for Eternity and storing up gifts in heaven, which will be with us in and for Eternity. The Lord instructed us in Matt: 6:20 “But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.”
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
In a conversation, with my youngest son, Blair the subject about the afterlife came up. Like many Blair is a hard-working young man (44) who sees his life and achievements as most by what he possesses Luke 12:15 Our Lord said: “ Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”
I wanted to let Blair know how he was missing the essence of what our true calling in life is and asked him if he understood what Eternity was and what he would possibly miss out on if he continued on his current path. I pointed out that he was like so many who become busy and caught up in the worldly cycle of our existence, as well as the importance of our appearance to our peers.
I wanted to demonstrate how this causes many ultimately to turn off the guidance of the Holy Spirit and set aside his promptings and urgings. I described how we become spellbound of what the world will and does provide if we are willing to work for it and the eventual consequences. Luke 12:19-21 v19: And will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast many goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. v20: But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those be, which thou hast provided? v:21: So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.
I wanted to show Blair how humanity has lost sight of being created in the image of God (Spirit) Gen. 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created him; male and female created He them. And as that spirit, we inherited an immortal life but not as a god. To those who believe they have evolved and choose not to believe in their endless existence as a spirit, this publication I pray will challenge your soul (Mind, Will, and Emotions).
Our conversation swung as Blair asked what would the treasures be? How do I distinguish them? Where would I find them? It was here that I explained as humans were made up of three parts the Spirit, Soul, and Body each having a distinct function. The Spirit gives us eternal life the Soul provides us purpose and reason to live because it operates through the mind, will, and emotions, the Body houses the Spirit and Soul which is why many believe they are one and the same, they are not. When we look at Genesis 1:27 we recognize that the immortality of the human spirit is revealed. Whereas in Genesis 2:7 we see the Lord breathed into Adams’ nostrils the breath of life which identified him as a living physical being having a soul or in other words the ability to reason, feel, and respond to his surroundings. Thus, we have the separation of the two, Spirit and Soul. I explained to Blair the action of God separating the Spirit and Soul eliminates or denies the possibility of theistic evolution (the soul being breathed into a living animal form).
Now to emphasize my point about immortality I asked Blair to picture what he saw as Eternity and with a stunned look, he declared it never ends. I then asked if he could relate being a spirit which like Eternity never ends and on passing from this life as a spirit was he ready for Eternity. Blair’s reply was “Dad,” “please don’t try to convert me I have my way of believing and have since I was young.” I assured him I was not attempting to convert him into any religious belief; I was merely informing him about Eternity and about being an immortal spirit within it. Matt;7:13-14 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: v: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Wanting to illustrate a point I asked Blair to compare this life to what he saw as Eternity he said it was a drop in the ocean. I pointed out as a spirit housed in a body destined to perish, and as such we only have that amount of time to prepare for our time in Eternity James 4:14: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
If you relate to my earlier statement, our purpose is to draw closer to Yeshua in preparation for our time in Eternity with Him. So now knowing the meaning behind our walk, it’s time for me to answer Blair’s questions. It’s the Soul which allows us to make our connection with the Holy Spirit where we find the treasures through the teachings he brings. It is through our Mind; we recognize his messages as gifts and treasures from God. We must use our Will to learn how to discern and interpret them and finally our Emotions to understand they are a part of our present and future walk with Yeshua and what we need to do with them to draw us closer to Yeshua now and finally as permanent treasures in Eternity.
It is here we can distinguish the importance of having the Holy Spirit in our lives as a teacher showing us how to interpret God’s messages. But more importantly, knowing that each word is directly from God brought to us through the Holy Spirit, who will guide us to the treasures within those messages. Which once recognized to be utilized and practiced in this lifetime but ultimately stored in heaven for our use in Eternity. Matt. 6:21 for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
If you recall, I stated earlier what I believe our purpose in this lifetime is about preparing for Eternity by “gathering as much information and detail about your personal walk with Yeshua.” I brought this conversation to a point by asking Blair if he was prepared for Eternity and stated that if not then think about what lay ahead for him. Now that he was provided with information which didn’t judge or evangelize him, perhaps he should analyze his position. I asked him to picture being without treasures for an Eternity and how he felt about that. His reply now knows his spirit was going to live forever and not being prepared would seem like Hell. Knowing and understanding that unless Blair took the time to learn discern and interpret and failed to store the treasures for Eternity would be an everlasting punishment.
Blair’s final question was so what is my next step? I reminded him that I was a messenger and servant of Yeshua, who was warning but would help him to become acquainted with the Holy Spirit, who would teach him how to draw closer to the Father and prepare for Eternity.
My thoughts and prayers are with all those who can identify and relate to Blair’s position with Eternity. I just hope and pray you will find something in this warning which will tweak your Soul to investigate further into preparing for Eternity.
For those who don’t understand how to hear the Holy Spirit, it begins with your conscience speaking to you about right and wrong. For those following the Evolution teachings, please understand there are choices, what if your choice is wrong. My position is such even if I’m wrong I still have my knowledge with me. I will leave you all with this final thought “We are told that we come into this World with nothing and will leave it the same way. If you are speaking about material your right.” “But I’m going to go out with my Soul filled with every gift God has seen fit to send me through the Holy Spirit, who gives me power and knowledge.“ As for Blair, he is real, and his situation is as described in this article, now searching for more treasure to place in Heaven.
