THE SEVEN THINGS ONE MUST DO TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR SALVATION AND RELATIONSHIP WITH YESHUA!
Many will state I know all of this I have been walking for years. This tidbit is to encourage those so sure they are walking without error, to go through the seven steps as an assessment of their relationship with Yeshua and know who it is you are following Yeshua or Baal.
1). Be willing to follow Christ Luke 9:23
2). Deny self Luke 9:23; Mark 8:34
3). Take up cross daily, not periodically, or when it is convenient and profitable Luke 9:23; Mark 8:34
4). Follow daily to the end, not for a while Luke 9:23, 8:13;Heb. 3: 6-14
5). Lose life, not gain it Luke 9:24; Mark 8:35
6). Live free from the love of the world Luke 9:25; 1John 2:15-17; James 4:4; John 15:18-19; John 17:14-16; Rom 12:1-2
7). Live unashamed of Christ and His words Luke9:26; Mark 8:38
In order to walk under God’s protection we must know that every effort is being made to assure the one condition stipulated in Psalms 91:1-2
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
With the darkening of the world and more and more persecution of Christianity, I have been asking believers to abide with the Lord using Psalm 91:1-2; 9-16 for protection.
He that by faith chooses God for his protector, shall find all in him that he needs or can desire. And those who have found the comfort of making the Lord their refuge, cannot but desire that others may do so.
The spiritual life is protected by Divine grace from the temptations of Satan, which are as the snares of the fowler, and from the contagion of sin, which is a noisome pestilence. Great security is promised to believers in the midst of danger.
Wisdom shall keep them from being afraid without cause, and faith shall keep them from being unduly afraid. Whatever is done, our heavenly Father’s will is done; and we have no reason to fear. God’s people shall see, not only God’s promises fulfilled, but his threatening’s. Then let sinners come unto the Lord upon his mercy-seat, through the Redeemer’s name; and encourage others to trust in him also.
A small reminder of number 6, we must choose who we are going to follow God, or the modern day version of Baal, the wisdom of the world, Science, doctors, and pharmaceuticals’.
