If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. v2. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3: 1-2.
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
Here, is a question that was posed several years ago, what is our purpose and I responded with the following statement, “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.“
The following scripture relates why we need to take our walk and relationship with Yeshua seriously. The importance of how we spend our time in this world and what we focus that time on. James 4:14: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father hear this short petition which I lay before your throne and plead for your attention. Father as you called to have your children come out of the darkness and false teachings, audit their walk and return to your laws. My petition is to provide through the Holy Spirit guidance protection and a clear mind to see the snares in place and those laying in wait. Bring them Father knowledge of how to recognize your will through the Holy Spirits tutoring. Provide food for their soul to nurture their free will and strengthen its knowledge of how to exercise it and make it more efficient in their pursuit of Salvation Life and Eternity. This I pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
Too all, the way in our journey is winding and twisting, because the Lord desires we learn from each horizon within the curves encountered, as they reveal new challenges.
As I learn, it becomes my desire to share as it is revealed, in doing so, I will receive in return, a 10 fold blessing within the teachings at the next curve in my journey. To some individuals, what is being revealed in the teachings, seem difficult to discern and harsh to follow. I say to them, it is only [so] if you are not sincere in your declaration and commitment to Yeshua.
The bends and curves, identify those areas, within our journey, not committed, and the lessons are the honing of your sword, so it can be resharpened to a keener edge.
If you are feeling stalled not moving forward from the particular curve you have entered. Time to step back, take a look at what’s in your mind as a part of the teaching that is offending or exposing shortcomings within your walk. You will not progress until it is resolved spiritually in your heart, not your mind. Remember we are to daily work out our salvation, meaning constantly moving forward with the teachings from the Holy Spirit, always drawing closer to Yeshua. The path is narrow and it took faith, discernment and perseverance on your part to find it, as Yeshua, related few will find it. Do not let complacency settle into your journey, always be active in our Lord’s name.
My question, why would you not realize it is going to take that same mindset of faith and perseverance to continue travelling on it?
I share what I have learned, how to accept the Lord is preparing me to gain entry into the promised land, as He did those who travelled 40 years in the desert being purged and prepared to enter their promised land.
They were taken into the desert to be rid of their pagan ways, worshipping and false ideologies. We are taken through our lives (time determined by God) as one of those few willing to sacrifice, persevere and locate that narrow path, to go through the curves of life being prepared to enter the promised glory of a new eternal life in the presence of Yeshua and God.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
We must walk even closer with God in all the instances of our evangelical obedience. The apostle Paul begins with exhorting the Colossians to set their hearts on heaven, and off from this world: If you then have risen with Yeshua. It is our privilege that we have risen with Yeshua that is, have benefited by the resurrection of Yeshua, and by virtue of our union and communion with him are justified and sanctified, and shall be glorified. Hence he infers that we must seek those things which are above.
We must make heaven our scope and aim, seek the favour of God above, keep up our communion with the upper world by faith, and hope, and holy love, and make it our constant care and business to secure our title to and qualifications for the heavenly bliss. And the reason is that Yeshua sits at the right hand of God.
He who is our best friend and our head is advanced to the highest dignity and honour in heaven, and has gone before to secure to us the heavenly happiness and therefore we should seek and secure what he has purchased at so vast an expense, and is taking so much care about. We must live such a life as Yeshua lived here on earth and lives now in heaven, according to our capacities.
Remember I am only the messenger doing as my Father (Yahewa) has called me to do as a” Watchman” share His warnings to His children so they will know of His presence. You now must decide your position in this walk with our Father and His Son Yeshua. Blessings and Peace be before you as you journey. “The one who listens to you listens to Me, and the one who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects the One who sent Me” (Luke 10:16).
