The clouds have descended on all. The time of despair is taking place. The Lord’s clearing of his church has begun. Make sure all is in place brothers and sisters.
The times ahead will be hazardous and dangerous for any outside of the Lord’s light and guidance time holds only despair and turmoil.
For believers Faith will be tested through our Lord’s actions, Satan has loosed many forms of temptations some we have never seen before.
There will be a falling away from the light and trust in the promises of our Lord.
Our patience is going to be stretched to its maximum. We must hold the same level of faith Peter demonstrated when he stepped out of the boat to walk on water.
Our eyes must be fixed on the Lord and our fervor must draw from the Holy Spirits teachings and ongoing guidance.
In these verses is an account of the sufferings of Christ; also of the design of his sufferings. It was for our sins, and in our stead, that our Lord Jesus suffered.
We have all sinned, and have come short of the glory of God. Sinners have their beloved sin, their own evil way, of which they are fond. Our sins deserve all griefs and sorrows, even the most severe.
We are saved from the ruin, to which by sin we become liable, by laying our sins on Christ. This atonement was to be made for our sins. And this is the only way of salvation. Our sins were the thorns in Christ’s head, the nails in his hands and feet, the spear in his side.
He was delivered to death for our offences. By his sufferings he purchased for us the Spirit and grace of God, to mortify our corruptions, which are the distempers of our souls.
We may well endure our lighter sufferings, if He has taught us to esteem all things but loss for him, and to love him who has first loved us.
Those who forsake, rebuke and stubbornly turn their backs on Yeshua, have no idea what they scoff at.
When I investigated the meaning of the word abide I discerned Yeshua’s real call to us.
Here is my interpretation of his message. When we abide the Lord looks for those who display the following commitments. We will tolerate incompetence, wait patiently for, will remain in a place, continue in existence (endure), to dwell or reside, and finally conform to; comply with.
These life qualities would be that which our Lord would see in those desiring to dwell in the secret place of the most High. To remain under the shadow of the Almighty for His ongoing protections being offered in verses 9 to 16 where the promise of Long life is given to those who abide with Yeshua.
Remember, these articles are given as warnings from a humble servant as God’s Watchman bringing His warnings to the flock of impending dangers. I pray for all to be covered with Yeshua’s blessings.
Be at peace and in faith as you journey forward doing God’s calling and work. As Yeshua said, be as wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove. Times are now, we must all be aware of our surroundings, and who it is we are dealing with. “And Yeshua through the Holy Spirit said unto me, “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”
