But sanctify the Lord in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. Having a good conscience, that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. For it is better if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well-doing than for evil doing. 1Peter 3:15 – 17
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
It has been expressed my recent articles have included an opinion and I admit they have. However, I submit as a Watchman I must and do express what has been revealed, by the Holy Spirit of what is taking place in the Assembly and consequently the believers.
It is not nor has it ever been my intention to lead or teach, even though it may at times appear as such, these opinions are only offered as insights, and guidelines as such.
” This article for me is a declaration of my stand exposing how many in the world have stepped away from God’s Law’s. How many declared leaders and believers within Yeshua’s Assemblies have stood back silently and allowed their flocks to be infiltrated by false teachings, that our “Father in heaven is just a Loving God, who forgives all sins.”
This lack of action has allowed multiple numbers of sins to be incorporated into the modern-day teachings within God’s Assemblies. It has allowed the enemy to silence the multitudes and the acceptance that evil is good and good is evil. Please recognize the God I worship follow, love and serve does forgive sin but is as well a “Just” God and who as well will rebuke those who choose to live in sin and outside of His laws.
In answer to many heartfelt prayers and deep meditation over the past number of days, the Lord has brought information as support for my declaration of my position within His laws and the release of “HAVING AN ANSWER.” Genesis 6:5 – 7 “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air, for it repenteth me that I have made them.
The worst of those allowed is the sin of Lust which has brought same-sex marriage, and variously connected atrocities before the altars of these once Holy sanctuaries and places of worship. It has allowed the spirit of lust to spread throughout the world’s societies as an acceptable part of everyday life, including being a typical atmosphere of a family. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.” (Genesis 6:5) A preview of the world’s current direction before the eyes of God.
This message has taken me to the very core of my belief and walk with God and His Son Yeshua. The task [I know is deeply controversial], but I trust the Lord desires it to be addressed. Revealing, how those walking in the world and walking under this false declaration “God is Just Love, and forgives all sin”, leaving out God is a “Just“ Father, have turned God and His Laws within this movement to honoring these sins Lasciviousness, Lusts, an excess of Wine, Revelings, Banquetings, and Abominable Idolatries. as being in the eyes of those following this false teaching as forgivable and good.
I am asking prayer for support and the forwarding of the article “HAVING AN ANSWER” as far as possible. Please recognize I am taking a stand against this evil act against God and His laws; it is as a humble, dedicated servant “HAVING AN ANSWER”!
These warnings are sent to inform of what is occurring or about to occur within Yeshua’s following. It is recognized much of the material shared may have or may in the future offend some. As ongoing information may expose situations within various walks and basic beliefs as we move forward within our journey.
“I am alerting all who read this article, take note, it predictably contains information warning Yeshua’s believers, and will to some be convicting and to others seen as offensive.” But it is an answer to the question are you ready to state your position in God’s Law’s, “which I am”? I am tired of hearing how sin in God’s eyes is a good thing, especially knowing those involved do so through a reprobate mind. Defined as being foreordained to damnation. Remember God’s words enter into Eternity and have no end to them so when he places those who follow this sin into a “reprobate mind”, their future has been defined.
This article is a warning and a call for believers to stand up and share their position about the Laws of God and the worship of His Son. One point, I pray you will keep at the forefront of your mind, “there can be no enmity, in the presence of God, none.“
The following information is not a judgment of anyone’s character, it is a serious warning to all, to have an answer when faced with the question “do you follow God’s laws as part of your walk, or like Peter deny your position as a believer?” Is your attachment to Yeshua so based on personal conviction, is it so truly the growth of your own experience, and so little a mere echo of popular opinion, that you say in your heart, “Though all men should forsake Thee, yet will not I“?
Experience has shown, humans have three basics in their personal foundation, one
is money, the other is health, and finally the most influential, what opinion the world has of them. Unfortunately, in many cases, there is very little attention paid to their eternal well being. It seems society is so concentrated on the “Todays“, little thought is given to the consequences of the inevitable, about their future walk within “Eternal life”.
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
“ Heavenly Father I want to thank you for previewing the real depth of our faith. I petition you, Father, for wisdom to be upon all those reading this article
deepens their discernment and understanding. Bring unto them a spirit of calm, so any decision about to be made with respect to their spiritual walk with you, Lord, would be an informed one void of fleshly emotions and worldly desires and concerns. I ask Lord you would remove any cords causing confusion and binding their minds. So, they might receive all and any information the Holy Spirit, will render to be used as the foundation of their future spiritual decisions as they continue their journey. I pray this in your name in the name of Yeshua AMEN and AMEN.“
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
In an earlier article, it was revealed humans are strange, you can speak to them, reason with them, and teach them. But in most cases, unless it fits what they perceive as important and fits into their definition of Spirituality as a believer or non-believer, very little will be retained. However, when you demonstrate “a quantitative” you gain their attention.
I believe this article will be a demonstration of “a “quantitative” within God’s Laws” and hopefully gain your full attention. The “quantitative” is God giving sinners over to a “reprobate mind” [future damnation]. We find the position
within our hearts and walk described in Romans 1:28. “If we truly love Him and find that He has taken place in our life we cannot ever give to another, if we are conscious that our future lies His way, and that we must in heart abide with Him, then all our slowness to understand is patiently dealt with, all our underrating of His real dignity is forgiven us, and we are led in His company to perfect conformity, perfect union, and perfect knowledge.”
Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774).
In this article, it is hoped it will demonstrate where many are standing in their walk with Yeshua. In Matthew Henry’s (1662 – 1774) commentary, we hear him calling us to be honest, and up front and center about our position: “ To ourselves, then, I say, by the circumstances of our time this question comes. “Will ye also go away?” Will you be like the rest, or will exceptional fidelity be found in you? Is your attachment to
Yeshua so based on personal conviction, is it so truly the growth of your own experience, and so little a mere echo of popular opinion, that you say in your heart, “Though all men should forsake Thee, yet will not I“? It is difficult to resist the current of thought and opinion that prevails around us. Difficult to dispute or even question the opinion of men who have been our teachers, and who have first awakened our mind to see the majesty of truth and the beauty of the universe. It is difficult to choose our own way, and thus tacitly condemn the choice and the way of men we know to be purer in life, and in every essential respect better than ourselves. And yet, perhaps, it is well that we are thus compelled to make up our own mind, to examine the claims of Yeshua for ourselves, and so follow Him with the resolution that comes of personal conviction. If we truly love Him and find that He has taken a place in our life we cannot ever give to another, if we are conscious that our future lies His way, and that we must in heart abide with Him, then all our slowness to understand is patiently dealt with, all our underrating of His real dignity is forgiven us, and we are led on in His company to perfect conformity, perfect union, and perfect knowledge.”
We also find which was revealed before and again brings the truth forward: James 2:12, “Some give this explanation, that as they flattered themselves too much, they are summoned to the right tribunal. For men absolve themselves according to their own notions because they withdraw themselves from the judgment of the divine law.”
I cut this commentary short because it is important, we go further into the explanation of how we might end up in the above description as our walk. Why do many believe they can extract themselves from God’s laws without consequences? Do they actually think or believe they’re above being taken to task by God?
The influence at this time in many cases is found in the latter statement of how the world sees our position. When we look at 1Peter 3:17 through Matthew Henry’s eyes we find: “Surely it is better to suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing, whatever our natural impatience at times may suggest. The example of Yeshua is an argument for patience under suffering. In the case of our Lord’s suffering, he that knew no sin suffered instead of those who knew no righteousness. The blessed end and design of our Lord’s sufferings were, to reconcile us to God, and to bring us to eternal glory. He was put to death with respect to his human nature but was quickened and raised by the power of the Holy Spirit. If Christ could not be freed from sufferings, why should Believers think to be so? God takes exact notice of the means and advantages people in all ages have had.”
Here is an example of how we might back away from our position in Yeshua. Fear of persecution. Simply not being able in conversation to state our scriptural position as a believer and follower of Yeshua. Our Lord reveals in Romans 1: 21 Because that, when they knew God, neither were thankful but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. In other words, spiritually we can’t fit in with this crowd. Our walk is not with their “perceived god” as our “Lord Yeshua” reveals who they have turned to worship. Romans 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, (God is Love, and forgives all sins) and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things (Astrology).
Are so many, believers, in a delusion they do not realize the position, in the name of compassion and political correctness, they are lowering themselves to. The aforementioned beliefs are used to manipulate and control society and Yeshua’s followers.
The Apostle reveals in 1Peter 4:4 “Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you.” Which when we research Peter’s meaning of “excess of riot” is explained in 1Peter 4:3 of what they celebrate and what we would be returning to in the flesh: Lasciviousness, lusts, an excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries.
To combat the temptations to fall back into the flesh and the wiles of those in the world, Peter provides these thoughts “if we are walking with our Lord Yeshua we no longer should live the rest of our lives in the flesh but to the will of God.”
For those who might doubt Peter’s intent, this was his message “But the end of all things is at hand, be ye, therefore, sober, and watch unto prayer.” “And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins” 1Peter 4:7-8.” It is difficult to choose our own way, and thus tacitly condemn the choice and the way of men we know to be purer in life, and in every essential respect better than ourselves. And yet, perhaps, it is well that we are thus compelled to make up our own mind, to examine the claims of Yeshua for ourselves, and so follow Him with the resolution that comes of personal conviction.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
When we look at Lust it is found as part of the return to the flesh and identifies this
walk with the god of Love movement. Yeshua describes the results of this Lust in Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. There is an evil sweeping the world which God once destroyed, I speak about Sodom and Gomorrah. This evil plague is spreading around the world and has become so powerful it is giving the appearance in the eyes of society as being good and being normal.
Remember, what has been shown is the basis for us to have an answer about our walk with Yeshua. Know if you are walking in the world, a fretful, discontented spirit is open to many temptations and one which stands out as the doorway and catalyst to this abomination “Lust“.
For this cause, God gave them up unto vile affections. For even there women changed the natural use into that which is against nature. And likewise, also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another man with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.
For, in all respects, the little which is allotted to the righteous, is more comfortable and more profitable than the ill-gotten and abused riches of ungodly men. It comes from a hand of special love. God provides plentifully and well, not only for his working servants but for his waiting servants.
They have that which is better than wealth, peace of mind, peace with God, and then peace in God; that peace which the world cannot give, and which the world cannot have. God knows the believer’s days. Not one day’s work shall go unrewarded.
Their time on earth is reckoned by days, which will soon be numbered; but heavenly happiness shall be forever. This will be a real support to believers in evil times. Those that rest on the Rock of ages have no reason to envy the wicked the support of their broken reeds.
I desired these to be my words but are Matthew Henry’s commentary on Psalms 37.
I find it difficult to think anyone knowing what is waiting, and having the knowledge of what is promised would fear to state their position in Yeshua. Always be prepared to declare your position knowing you will be persecuted.
To finish James’ commentary “then reminds all deeds and words are there to be accounted for because God will judge the world according to God’s laws.“
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father thank you for your Laws. Thank you for the strength to live by them, Lord. Thank you for your protection, thank you for discernment to light our way. Thank you, Father, for filling our hearts with courage and understanding so we may use our will to choose the direction of our walk as one of the few who has found your narrow path and strength to continue. Thank you, Father, for healing our spiritual wounds as we continue our battles against sin and those within it. This we pray in the name of Yeshua, Amen, and Amen.
This picture represents the storm our stand and walks we see on our horizons, but we know as God’s Watchman sounding the “Trumpet”, Yeshua is right next to us as a comforter but as well the light which defeats darkness. Hebrews 13:6 “So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.” Blessings to all and may you be filled with Yeshua’s peace.
