DECLARATION by Robert
Let me be clear, if you are here, looking to have your ears tickled, you’re in the wrong place. Unless of course, you are tired of living an empty existence, being placated, and seen as merchandise. But are looking to learn how to have a personal relationship with Yeshua, then I pray, you will find what you’re seeking, through the messages offered here.
Question: Have you ever compared your love and commitment for your spouse, family or friends, to the love and commitment you declare to Yeshua?
The next question would you find a difference in any? What does your vow to Yeshua mean to you? When I researched a vow, this is what was revealed; A Vow: a solemn promise or assertion. Specifically: one by which a person is bound to an act, service, or condition.
I was taught, God takes Vows deeply serious and this definition defines why! What I recognize through this definition, we should understand the why: it’s a solemn promise, it means to bind or consecrate by the vow.
1 Peter 1:8-9
Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
These words ascribe salvation to the electing love of the Father, the redemption of the Son, and the sanctification of the Holy Ghost; and so to give glory to one God in three Persons, into whose name they had been baptized.
Hope, in the world’s vision, refers only to an uncertain good, for all worldly hopes are unstable, being built upon sand, and the worldly’s hopes of heaven are blind and groundless conjectures.
But the hope of the sons of the living God is a living hope; not only as to its object, but as to its effect also. It enlivens and comforts in all distresses, enables to meet and get over all difficulties. Mercy is the spring of all this; yea, great mercy and manifold mercy. And this well-grounded hope of salvation, is an active and living principle of obedience in the soul of the believer.
The matter of a Christian’s joy, is the remembrance of the happiness laid up for him. It is incorruptible, it cannot come to nothing, it is an estate that cannot be spent. Also undefiled; this signifies its purity and perfection. And it fadeth not; is not sometimes more or less pleasant, but ever the same, still like itself.
All possessions here are stained with defects and failings; still something is wanting: fair houses have sad cares flying about the gilded and ceiled roofs; soft beds and full tables, are often with sick bodies and uneasy stomachs. All possessions are stained with sin, either in getting or in using them. How ready we are to turn the things we possess into occasions and instruments of sin, and to think there is no liberty or delight in their use, without abusing them!
Worldly possessions are uncertain and soon pass away, like the flowers and plants of the field.
That must be of the greatest worth, which is laid up in the highest and best place, in heaven. Happy are those whose hearts the Holy Spirit sets on this inheritance.
God not only gives his people grace, but preserves them unto glory. Every believer has always something wherein he may greatly rejoice; it should show itself in the countenance and conduct.
The Lord does not willingly afflict, yet his wise love often appoints sharp trials, to show his people their hearts, and to do them good at the latter end.
Gold does not increase by trial in the fire, it becomes less; but faith is made firm, and multiplied, by troubles and afflictions. Gold must perish at last, and can only purchase perishing things, while the trial of faith will be found to praise, and honour, and glory.
Let this reconcile us to present afflictions. Seek then to believe Christ’s excellence in himself, and his love to us; this will kindle such a fire in the heart as will make it rise up in a sacrifice of love to him.
And the glory of God and our own happiness are so united, that if we sincerely seek the one now, we shall attain the other when the soul shall no more be subject to evil. The certainty of this hope is as if believers had already received it.
The love of God in Christ, in the hearts of Christians from the Spirit of adoption, is the great proof of conversion. This must be tried by its effects on their temper, and their conduct to their brethren. If a man professes to love God, and yet indulges anger or revenge, or shows a selfish disposition, his profession is a lie.
But if it is plain that our natural enmity is changed into affection and gratitude, let us bless the name of our God for this seal and earnest of eternal happiness.
Then we differ from the false professors, who pretend to love God, whom they have not seen, yet hate their brethren, whom they have seen.
My prayers go out to all who hear the Trumpeters Call I ask the Lord to bring discernment through the Holy Spirit, I pray that Yeshua will fill all with the spirit of courage knowledge and submission unto Him. This I pray in the name of Yeshua. Amen & Amen.
