BY THE SPIRIT HE HATH GIVEN!
Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst, shall never be totally destitute thereof; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life John 4:14. ,
COMMENTARY by Robert
As I read Job 31:15 KJVS . Did not he that made me in the womb make him? Did not one fashion us in the womb? As I continue researching, I continue discovering more and more proof that God has not stopped shaping and moulding us into the men and women He desires .
Our journey begins in a struggle as we enter and move through the birth canal. Many believe or feel once we enter the world as a newborn, we are on our own.
Far from it, God’s love for His children is there with us, to be accepted, felt and nurtured on our part. It is here, we begin to feel that love through those who have been assigned as our worldly guardians during our infancy and child period of growth as a Newborn.
The same applies to those who come out of the darkness into the light as newborn spirits reconnected to God. There must be a period of preparation, as Yeshua declared in John 6:65, “ Therefore said I unto you that no man can come unto me, except it was given unto him of my Father .” So, like the infant who travels through the birth canal, those who are coming to Salvation spiritually come out of the darkness, not without prior turmoil.
This is expressed again by Yeshua in John 15:16-17 “ Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it to you, These things I command you, that ye love one another.”
Here is an indication of the work begun in the womb, being
carried forward as preparation in us to become born-again spirits, then being nurtured by the Holy Spirit in preparation as we grow and establish our relationship with the Son Yeshua . We are being prepared in our growth and grooming by the Lord in stages of accepting discernment grow into using our understanding and knowledge of the many gifts our heavenly Father is bestowing on us.
This choosing is not because of our wisdom and goodness in choosing him for our master, but to his favour and grace in choosing us for His modern-day disciples, through and by his providence and Spirit.
We understand , not all are called to discipleship, but must keep in mind Yeshua’s continued working within us in shaping and moulding us as his choice before we choose salvation and directs and determines it.
Keeping in mind, all that are chosen to grace and glory, it may be said, they have not chosen Yeshua , but he had chosen them. Deut. 7:7,8.
We have no reason to distrust the goodness of God, and surely , we have no reason to question his power (2 Corinthians 9:8). He can make all grace abound towards us and abound in us; to give a significant increase of spiritual and temporal good things , as part of His continued work.
He can cause a sufficiency in all things, to be content with what we have, to make up what we give, to be able to give yet more: as it is written (Psalms 112:9) concerning the charitable man, He hath dispersed abroad.
The perfection of the saints in every good work is the great thing desired by them and for them, so they may have the perfection of integrity, a clear mind, a clean heart, lively affections, regular and resolved wills, and suitable strength for every decent work to which they are called, and at length a perfection of degrees to fit them for the employment and joy of heaven.
CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert
The prominent evils encountered in the Den of Wolves are appropriately described in James 3:16 For where envying and strife are, there are confusion and every evil work.
Political Correctness and Delusional Paranoia have brought forward the true condition of those currently , walking as the worldly , described in 2Timothy 3: For men shall be lovers of themselves, covetous , boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful. Unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded , lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof (the God is Love without being Chaste movement); from such turn away.
There is scarcely any sin against which our Lord Yeshua more warns his disciples than disquieting , distracting, distrustful cares about the things of this life. The current condition of paranoic fear over a pandemic is front and center.
This condition often ensnares the poor as much as the love of wealth does the rich. We are brought to this truth, “ take no thought for your life .” It is not about its length but refers it to God to lengthen or shorten it as he pleases; our times are in his hands, and they are well cared for.
They set Watchmen to guard and to warn of an enemies’ approach, and where the everlasting happiness or misery of the soul is at stake. Some are offended if a Watchman obeys the master’s command and gives a faithful warning; they would rather perish, listening to things which tickle the ears and strokes the ego.
Those who despaired finding mercy with God are answered with a solemn declaration of God’s readiness to show mercy.
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing HIs bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger or shortfalls within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength . (Isaiah 26:3-4)
