“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4).
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
Yahweh has been calling His children back to His word and teachings, calling us out of the Worldly religious systems and their mediocre lessons. Movements are permeating the worldly assemblies, and our society is sliding into evil through many delusions and precepts. I am sorrowed and troubled that so many our Father has and is now calling out to as Matthew Henry put it are “Enemies of the Gospel” in his commentary of Apostle Paul in Romans 9:1. As did Paul state to the Gentiles, “I state the truth in Christ,” So am I relating to all who will read this warning which was given to me by the “Holy Spirit.”
I now understand why my complete apprehension, great sorrow, and heaviness which has been filling me spiritually and emotionally. At the same time, I pray and meditate on the content of this message and how to deliver it.
This message has come over the past months in parts to be discerned and shared with all. Some may not be prepared to hear the “Trumpet’s Warning.” Who are God’s children? How do we receive the “blessing of Abraham”? Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us: Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree Gal.3:13 so we might receive the promise of the Spirit through Faith.
For after Faith comes, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by Faith in Yeshua. Gal.3:25-26. Please, I see as the Apostle did in Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Yeshua as the image of His Father an eternal spirit.
Knowing there are unbelievers among those who have received the Spirit of Christ through Faith recognized the blessings of Abraham and now know of God’s covenants and His Laws by a “repentant heart.” Greetings to all, and to all, I offer this prayer before we embark on our journey into the darkness encompassing the world.
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father Hear my petition as I place it before your throne, asking to bring upon those now fully armoured, instructed and fully dedicated to your service. Through the Holy Spirit reveal unto to them, Father your gifts reserved for the elect. So they are received willingly and share them, Father, with those they will attract with your light as Beacons out of the darkness as Fisher’s of Men. Bring unto them Father your promises through service, Lord. Place upon them Father discernment, understanding and especially your covering of protection. I pray this in the name of Yeshua (Jesus Christ). Amen and Amen.
DISCERNMENT: The quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure: skill in discerning: an act of perceiving or discerning something.
The following description falls into the definition, as mentioned above. Saul was a man of the Pharisees, bred to learning, a scholar. Let it not be said that all of Christ’s followers are unlearned and ignorant men. The principles of the Pharisees, and the peculiarities of their sect, were directly contrary to the Spirit of Christianity. Yet, there were some in whom even those high thoughts were cast down and brought into obedience to Christ. The grace of Christ can subdue the greatest opposition.
Paul preached a crucified Yeshua (Jesus) in plain language. He told the people that Yeshua (Jesus,) who was crucified at Jerusalem, was the Son of God and Saviour of men and that all who would be saved must repent of their sins and believe in him and submit to his governing and laws.
This truth needed no artificial dress; it shone out with the most excellent majesty in its own light and prevailed in the world by its divine authority, and the demonstration of the Spirit, without any human, helps. The plain preaching of a crucified Yeshua (Jesus) was more potent than all the oratory and philosophy of the Gentile world.
Paul preached the gospel, and the cross of Christ: Not with the wisdom of words (1Co 1:17}), the enticing words of “man’s wisdom” (1Co 2:4}), the flourish of oratory, or the accuracies of philosophical language, upon which the Greeks so much prided themselves, and which seem to have been the peculiar recommendations of some of the heads of the faction in this church that most opposed Paul.
He did not preach the gospel in this manner, lest the cross of Christ should be of no effect, lest the success should be ascribed to the force of art, (Obedient Heart) and not of truth. Not to the plain doctrine of a crucified Yeshua (Jesus), but to the powerful oratory of those who spread it, and hereby the honour of the cross be diminished or eclipsed. Paul had been bred up himself in Jewish learning at the feet of Gamaliel, but in preaching the cross of Christ, he laid his knowledge aside with a “Repentant heart.”
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
Paul points out there were those being Jews who expected their Messiah to be a great temporal prince, and therefore would never own one who made so mean an appearance in life and died so accursed a death for their deliverer and king. They despised him and looked upon him as execrable, because he was hanged on a tree, and because he did not gratify them with a sign to their mind, though his divine power shone out in innumerable miracles.
He was to the Greeks foolishness. They laughed at the story of a crucified Saviour and despised the apostles’ way of telling it. They sought for wisdom. They were men of wit and reading, men that had cultivated arts and sciences, and had, for some ages, been in a manner the very mint of knowledge and learning.
There was nothing in the plain doctrine of the cross to suit their taste, nor humour their vanity, nor gratify a curious and wrangling temper. They entertained it, therefore with scorn and contempt. What, hope to be saved by one that could not save himself!
And trust in one who was condemned and crucified as a malefactor, a man of low birth and poor condition in life, and cut off by so vile and unrespectable a death!
This was what the pride of human reason, and learning could not relish. The Greeks thought it little better than stupidity to receive such a doctrine, and pay this high regard to such a person: and thus were they justly left to perish in their pride and obstinacy.
I ask all to liken back to the definition of Discernment, The quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure: skill in discerning: an act of perceiving or discerning something.
By teaching, in the manner, Paul did and using the gift of discernment, we who have the Spirit of God with us. Are now able to recognize those in the darkness today who walk under the same delusions as the Jews and Greeks of his time did. Satan uses pride and obstinacy to ensnare and destroy, through worldly wisdom I call “Brain Candy!”
Now using our understanding and knowledge of what we are competing with to bring God’s truth forward reveals using the same approach as Paul did is the most effective. Discernment is a powerful tool allowing us to step forward with a “repentant heart.” To demonstrate with sincerity to dispel the myths surrounding those walking in a cloud worldly pride and obstinacy.
With understanding, all we have been commissioned by Yeshua (Jesus) to do for those walking in this cloud of delusions, is by a sound demonstration of God’s love, compassion and forgiveness plant the seeds of discernment to dispel the “Brain Candy” seen as contempt and foolishness.
Knowing they, desire wisdom our demonstration of how Yeshua (Jesus) through the Holy Spirit fills our lives with Spiritual wisdom. Is far superior to their worldly wisdom. Along with the ultimate benefit of eternal life could be an answer for them if they use Faith to gain Discernment to recognize what they are rejecting is God’s Love and Compassion, which will free them into a pearl of greater wisdom, freedom.
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father, as we bow before your throne and lay our petitions before you, we ask you to hear our prayers. As our days become more treacherous and dangerous, we pray Lord for your guidance. We recognize Father those who desire to harm or prevent us from doing your work, they do not accept you or your compassion, forgiveness, or love. We give praise Lord for the protection you place us under and acknowledge You alone are our helper and uphold our souls. We know Father, you will reward evil unto our enemies, cutting them off in your truth. We know Father it is You who will deliver us from all sin. This we give thanks for in the name of your Son, Yeshua (Jesus Christ), Amen, and Amen.
This picture represents the storm our stand and walk will be on our horizon, but we know as God’s children, Yeshua is right next to us as a comforter. But as well the light which defeats darkness. Hebrews 13:6 “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Blessings to all, and may you be filled with Yeshua’s peace, love, compassion, and strength.
