“WHO IS THE LIGHT OF YOUR LIFE?”


And this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil.” (John 3:19)

PRE-AMBLE by Robert.   

The deeper we get into the Den of Wolves, the more we can identify who the false teachers and prophets are, and how they are spreading their poison within the Ecclesia. 

The Holy Spirit lead me to two books in Scripture “John” and “1John” within these two I was shown what to provide as a witness to Yeshua’s modern-day disciples, in preparation, for their advancement into their battles ahead. Like the ancients who requested John to write his gospels in opposition to the heresy of Corinthus and Ebionites. [I] am using these Gospels to bring forward his responses as lessons for those modern-day disciples to use as our offense against our modern day heretics within the Ekklesia. 

OPENING PRAYER by Robert 

Heavenly Father I pray for those taking up this mantle and challenge. I ask Father for a constant hedge of protection to be built around them their homes and families. Place with them as your continuous protection four Cherubim angels at the four corners of their lives, homes, families, properties, and personal possessions. Fill them with your heavenly secrets, wisdom, discernment along with understanding. Provide them with patience, determination, and endurance to maintain Your battle. In all of this, I pray in your name Yeshua. Amen and Amen. 

OPENING COMMENTS by Robert

The Gospel of 1John brings forward witness of broad moral topics. And the goal is to guide Yeshua’s Disciples, to John’s instructions and directives within those topics for those who are about to face many new challenges to their faith and walk.  

In the book of John, we are going to find the account of Yeshua’s life which is much different from the Synoptic Gospels of (Matthew, Mark, and Luke). We are going to be provided at the end of this Gospel (John 20:30,31) signs and wonders Yeshua performed giving us the ability to prove Yeshua is indeed the Son of God. Also, we will find several miracles mentioned only in this book Yeshua turning water into wine (John 2:1-12) as an example. 

The Gospel of John is divided into chronological portions: the pre-existence of Yeshua (John 1:1-18). His first year of ministry (John 1:19 – 4:54); His popularity during the second year (chapter 5), the opposition against him in His third year of ministry (John 12:12 -19:42); and the forty days following his resurrection (Chapters 20,21). These four portions hold many tools we will need to round out our instructions and directions as we enter battle as “God’s modern-day Disciples.” 

When it comes down to it, the Book of John has laid out the whole story of what our battle is indeed about and why it occurred. The Apostle has given us the basis of why we are entering this war, the bottom line reconnecting our spirit directly to God through the Salvation and grace His Son Yeshua makes available. The Apostle John is gifting us with information pertinent to the returning of those lost sheep God is calling to return to the flock.  He is providing information and proof that who we speak of as our Lord is indeed the Word, Son of God. Thus, there are no grounds on behalf of anyone within the Den of Wolves trying to argue that the deity of Yeshua does not exist or isn’t sufficient. 

His existence, in the beginning, was the Word. This bespeaks his presence, not only before his incarnation but before all time. The beginning of time, in which all creatures were produced and brought into being, found this eternal Word in being. The world was from the beginning, but the Word was in the beginning. Eternity is usually expressed by being before the foundation of the world. The eternity of God is so described (Psalms 90:2). Before the mountains were brought forth. So Proverbs 8:23. The Word had a being before the world had a beginning. He that was in the beginning never began, and therefore was ever, (achronos) without beginning of time. So Nonnus.

The scope of John 1 is to confirm our faith in Yeshua as the eternal Son of God, and the real Messiah and Saviour of the World. That we may be brought to receive him, rely on him, as our Prophet, Priest, and King. And to give up ourselves to be ruled, and taught, and saved by him. This is the foundation of our walk as modern-day disciples entering into the “Den of Wolves” as “God” has called His disciples to do. Bring home those sheep which have strayed find them rescue them and return them to the flock. 

So Here we must assess what, when, where, who, and how, we are going to meet with our fallen brothers and sisters who were deluded believe they know God and His Son Yeshua. Remember we are in the Den of Wolves and will be dealing with those who follow a doctrine which has false teachings and prophecies. Those within the Den will need particular attention and skilled, knowledgeable handling to be drawn back to the flock. In our last article “Yea though I Walk Through The Valley of Death” I displayed a video showing the type of individual you will be meeting, confronting, and dealing with. Further Jesse Penn-Lewis gave us a Description of what we would encounter through dealing with these individuals. If you missed the article here is a link to it to see or refresh your memory.

The apostles declared what they had seen and heard, that believers might share their comforts and everlasting advantages. They had free access to God the Father. They had a blissful experience of the truth in their souls and showed its excellence in their lives.

This communion of believers with the Father and the Son is begun and kept up by the influences of the Holy Spirit. The benefits Yeshua bestows, are not like the meager possessions of the world, causing jealousies in others. But the joy and happiness of communion with God are all-sufficient, so that any number may partake of it; and all who are warranted to say, that indeed their fellowship is with the Father, will desire to lead others to partake of the same blessedness.

John shows us how to have the same communion with Yeshua through his testimony of the evidence given concerning Yeshua’s person and excellence. (1 John 1:1,1 John 1:2). John states the knowledge thereof gives us communion with God and Yeshua, (1John 1:3), and joy (1John 1:4). A description of God (1 John 1:5). How we are to walk (1 John 1:6). The benefit of such walking (1 John1:7). The way, to forgiveness (1 John 1:9). And last the evil of denying our sin (1 John 1:8 – 10). Here is where we make a choice here is what John reveals as the choice. There is a difference between committing a sin and continuing to sin. Even the most faithful believers sometimes commit sins, but they do not cherish a particular sin or continually choose to commit it. 

KNIGHT 14
While the necessity of a holy walk is insisted upon, as the effect and evidence of the knowledge of God in Yeshua, the opposite error of self-righteous pride is guarded against with equal care. All who walk near to God, in holiness and righteousness, are sensible that their best days and duties are mixed with sin. God has given testimony to the sinfulness of the world, by providing a sufficient, effectual Sacrifice for sin, needed in all ages; and the sinfulness of believers themselves is shown, by requiring them continually to confess their sins, and to apply by faith to the blood of that Sacrifice. Let us plead guilty before God, be humble, and willing to know the worst of our case. Let us honestly confess all our sins in their full extent, relying wholly on his mercy and truth through the righteousness of Yeshua, for a free and complete forgiveness, and our deliverance from the power and practice of sin. 
 
These are the instructions John has brought to us to demonstrate as part of our tools, speech, an example of revealing the truth through actions rather than words. We are warriors of truth armored, trained, educated, and supported by Yeshua. And as such must act accordingly as the battle-ready soldiers of truth, we are. 
The disciples had shut the doors for fear of the Jews; and when they had no such expectation, Yeshua himself came and stood in the midst of them, having miraculously, though silently, opened the doors. It is a comfort to Yeshua’s disciples when their assemblies can only be held in private that no doors can shut out Yeshua’s presence. (Matthew 18:20) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. 
When He manifests his love to believers by the comforts of his Spirit, he assures them that because he lives, they shall live also. A sight of Yeshua will gladden the heart of a disciple at any time; and the more we see of Yeshua, the more we shall rejoice. He said, Receive ye the Holy Ghost, thus showing that their spiritual life, as well as all their ability for their work, would be derived from him, and depended upon him. Every word of Yeshua which is received in the heart by faith comes accompanied by this Divine breathing; and without this, there is neither light nor life. Nothing is seen, known, discerned, or felt of God, but through this. After this, Yeshua directed the apostles to declare the only method by which sin would be forgiven. This power did not exist at all in the apostles as a power to give judgment, but only as a power to declare the character of those whom God would accept or reject in the day of judgment. They have clearly laid down the marks whereby a child of God may be discerned and be distinguished from a false professor, and according to what they have declared shall every case be decided in the day of judgment. When we assemble in Christ’s name, especially on his holy day, he will meet with us, and speak peace to us.

Some will recognize the Word and have accepted Him. John the Baptist came to bear witness concerning Yeshua. Nothing more fully shows the darkness of men’s minds, than that when the Light had appeared, there needed a witness to call attention to it. Yeshua was the true Light; that great Light which deserves to be called so.

By his Spirit and grace he enlightens all that are enlightened to salvation; and those that are not illuminated by him, perish in darkness. Christ was in the world when he took our nature upon him and dwelt among us. The Son of the Highest was here in this lower world. He was in the world, but not of it. He came to save a lost world because it was a world of his own making. Yet the world knew him not. 

When having an Advocate with the Father; one who has undertaken, and is fully able, to plead in behalf of everyone who applies for pardon and salvation in his name, depending on his pleading for them. He is  “Yeshua,” the Saviour, and “Christ,” the Messiah, the Anointed. He alone is “the Righteous One,” who received his nature pure from sin, and as our Surety perfectly obeyed the law of God, and so fulfilled all righteousness. All men, in every land, and through successive generations, are invited to come to God through this all-sufficient atonement, and by this new and living way. The gospel, when rightly understood and received, sets the heart against all sin, and stops the allowed practice of it; at the same time, it gives blessed relief to the wounded consciences of those who have sinned.
 
The following is a warning of what we must continuously be aware of and fight against. John shows what can be used as tools but what must never enter into our lives as sought after possessions to be held admiringly. Matthew Henry (1662 -1774) describes them in this commentary perfectly. The things of the world may be desired and possessed for the uses and purposes which God intended, and they are to be used by his grace, and to his glory, but believers must not seek or value them for those purposes to which sin abuses them. The world draws the heart from God; and the more the love of the world prevails, the more the love of God decays. The things of the world are classed according to the three ruling inclinations of depraved nature. 1. The lust of the flesh, of the body: sinful desires of the heart, the appetite of indulging all things that excite and inflame sensual pleasures. 2. The lust of the eyes: the eyes are delighted with riches and rich possessions; this is the lust of covetousness. 3. The pride of life: a vain man craves the grandeur and pomp of a vain-glorious life; this includes thirst after honor and applause. The things of the world quickly fade and die away; desire itself will ere long fail and cease, but holy affection is not like the lust that passes away. The love of God shall never fail. Many vain efforts have been made to evade the force of this passage by limitations, distinctions, or exceptions. Many have tried to show how far we may be carnally-minded, and love the world, but the plain meaning of these verses cannot easily be mistaken. Unless this victory over the world is begun in the heart, a man has no root in himself but will fall away, or at most remain an unfruitful professor. Yet these vanities are so alluring to the corruption in our hearts, that without constant watching and prayer, we cannot escape the world, or obtain victory over the god and prince of it.
 
 
 
 
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father accept our humble presence before your throne. Recognize the weaknesses of our nature and fill us with your strength so we may continue receiving your wisdom to move forward as discerning disciples. Bring us closer to your bosom that we know and recognize your Spiritual presence as we gather in your name. Demonstrate your patience that we may witness it understand it and share it with those we minister to. We plead for you to use our commitment to its fullest and most productive purpose as a testimony of your Love and Compassion. This we pray in your name Yeshua. Amen and Amen. 
 
 
 
 
CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert
General Patton World War ll most revered General stated and I paraphrase “A soldier who is well trained and equipped will be victorious in all battles he may engage in.” The Apostle John has given us the most detailed weaponry available. The Lord has given us the greatest weapon ever conceived described in Hebrews 4:12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.  
 
Our task then is to go forward within the “Den of Wolves” being as wise as Serpents and Gentle as Doves using the information provided by John as the Word of God wisely knowing it’s power. Our goal as modern day disciples like Yeshua, “who sought to save that one soul”, by waiting for the Samaritan woman, seek out those one soul’s God is calling to return to the flock. 
 
Is this a deep calling “Yes”? Is it worth our effort “Yes” Are we answering our Father’s call to return to following His Laws “Yes”? It all started here where we were given a choice who to follow as we see in this link and in so doing have been lead and taught by the Holy Spirit in preparation for these battles.

Remember I am just the messenger and the choices to be made are yours. Keep in mind what the Watchman is obligated to in Ezekiel 33 I believe applies to all who have received the knowledge of the warning and messages applies to you as well. It boils down to choices of the individual. May our Lord continue blessing you as you go forward walking in His light and peace.
Robert

ARE WE PROFICIENT “FISHERS OF MEN”?


OPENING PRAYER by Robert.

Heavenly Father I come before thee as your humble servant placing before you Father All who are reflecting your light into the world and walking as your “FISHER’S OF MEN.” I pray Lord you will remove from us any spirits of pride, self-importance, thinking we are special. Yehwah I pray for the spirits of humility, meekness, and submission be upon us Lord through the leading of the Holy Spirit. I ask Lord for you to draw us closer Father to deepen your personal relationship with us, Lord.  I pray you will loose upon us a deeper knowledge of the mysteries required within our walk for the spiritual battles we will face as your humble servants. I plead Father you will deepen our spirit of discernment and wisdom to enhance our understanding of the courage you have placed in our hearts so we may move forward  This I pray for in the name of Yeshua. Amen and Amen.

OPENING STATEMENT by Robert

“WAR ON THE SAINTS” what an ominous statement when first heard! It might even make one ponder “what have I gotten into”? “Who is this man” professing to be a servant of Yehwah and Yeshua providing truth and drawing me into areas I am not familiar with. Revealing those truths I know my spirit has longingly pined for, and now that I have them before me, I wonder and ponder “what is this war?”  

I say “Good” that means I have your attention both mentally and spiritually and know you are willing to hear truths brought as spiritual weapons to work out your Salvation and remain on the “PATH of HOLINESS.” However as well, like our LORD having the heart to fight for one soul needing rescue from death. Realizing you are in a War for your soul and comprehending the previously unrecognized enemy is now your assimilated enemy. What an awakening moment being stirred from a devilish slumber to an active role in survival and journey to “Life Eternal,” “WOW.” 

“Philosophical,” yes, it must be to completely understand what is in your heart not your mind to continue moving forward. When you came to the LORD through Salvation, and Faith Yeshua gifted you a fleshly heart and removed your Stoney one.  He gave us a new spirit to walk with and told us not to sin anymore and forgave all our past sins, wiped the slate clean, we were “BORN AGAIN SPIRITUALLY” into a new walk and an ongoing spiritual battle, “Let us put on the armor of light.” (Rom 13:12)

Do you recall I stated Satan didn’t know you when he had you in darkness, well recognize your soul having been rescued and stolen from him, his deceptions, temptations, and taken from his domain of death? Do you honestly believe he’s going to just walk away without a fight to get you back under his control? I also stated he was going to create a plan to get you back because you now represent a direct threat to him and his plans. 

He knows you have discovered the light you came into this world with and are going to attract others with it. Satan also realizes you are new to this War and its battles; but unfamiliar at what depth you truly walk or what weapons are available or how to use them effectively.

To put a carnal view on the importance of knowing your enemy here is a quote from Major Gen. George S Patton (Nov. 11, 1885 – Dec. 21, 1945) militarily today still considered the most successful Gen of WWII. Soldiers are not good on the battlefield without training hard beforehand. Whether it’s a soldier, a civilian wanting to run a marathon, or a CEO running a company, being successful at what you do requires focus, effort, and learning. For soldiers especially, working extra hard in training can save their lives later.” 

It doesn’t matter at what level you are walking at Satan will try using all of your former fleshly weaknesses and some very unfamiliar ones as well, to cause you to stumble, hesitate, doubt and or question. Know this he is patient and places his temptations before us knowing they will continue to work against us if we don’t have the right tools or knowledge to deal with them. This is what the Apostle Paul was speaking of by putting our body into submission from our former fleshly lusts and pleasures. As well James advising to connect our new-found wisdom to our Faith and using both wisely to move forward in preparing for upcoming battles. 

Satan is going to go through your thought process and attempt to draw you back into your memories of the former life and lusts to create a false conviction in your mind making you believe you’re unworthy, don’t fall for it! Remember, God, has if you have, “Sincerely Repented,” wiped your slate clean of all past sins (forgiven all) and given you a new Spiritual life to work out your Salvation. While learning how to proceed on your journey to Life and Eternity without “willingly or plotting to sin.” Your reply to this deception should be “Get behind me Satan“! 

Matthew Henry (Oct 18, 1662 – June 22, 1774) explains our threats and why we need to be cautious in Ephesians 4;17 – 32: v.17. This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind. v18. Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart. Here is another deception you will face, Satan placing doubt mentally the Lord has given you a new heart and removed the Stoney one! In this deception, he is attempting to draw you back to your former self to again walk in death. Know the truth Yeshua has provided us a weapon in Matthew 4;4 “it is written man shall not live by breadL

 alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

We are provided “wisdom” as food for our spirit through the Holy Spirits guidance and teachings for discerning temptations and knowledge of how to deal with them through God’s word, not our fleshly desires or former thinking.

Matthew Henry continues in v19. Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. v20. But ye have not so learned Yeshua v21. If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Yeshua: v22. That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts.  Yeshua in Matthew 4:10 provides the weapon we need to overcome greed and lusts of the flesh, v10: “Then saith Yeshua unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the LORD thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 

Matthew Henry continues in v23. And be renewed in the spirit of your mind v24. And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. v25.Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. v26. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. v27. Neither gives place to the Devil v28. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. v29. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.v30. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. v31. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice: v32. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Yeshua’s sake hath forgiven you.  

I have stated Yeshua “The Word the Son of God” who I follow and worship are in heaven and “do not need to be born every year or crucified every year. There are a few reasons I state this fact the most important being the word of God is very clear check out Heb.1:3, 2:9,4:14 – 16, and finally 9:24. Please recognize while Yeshua walked here on earth he was as we are, “created below thLewisels,” once crucified he ascended to his rightful place and position as the Son of God sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven to appear before the Father for us. 

The following is taken from the book “War on the Saints” written by Jesse Penn Lewis, (1861- 1927) Welsh Evangelical Speaker & Author who supported Evan Roberts in the Welsh Revival of 1904 – 1905 the largest Christian revival in history. She published several books concerning The War On The Saints, providing many with tools/weapons to work out their Salvation as well importantly assist them with spiritual information which aided in freeing and rescuing many souls.  

God is in heaven. Yeshua, the Glorified Man, is in Heaven. The location of the God we worship is of supreme importance. If we think of our God as in us, and around us, for our worship, and for our “enjoyment.”  We unwittingly open the door to the evil spirits in the atmosphere which surround us. Instead of our penetrating in spirit through the lower heavens (see Heb 4:14) to the throne of God. Which is in the highest heaven, “above principality and power, and every name that is named, not only in this world but in that which is to come” (Eph. 1:21). The God we worship, The Christ we love, is in Heaven; and it is as we approach him there, and by FAITH apprehend our union with Him in spirit there, we too, are raised with Him and seated with Him.” (Eph.1:20-23; 2:6).

Jesse Penn Lewis (1861- 1927) in her previous statement has identified how subtle our enemies approach will be. He wants us to remain in the lower heavens  (Worldly), “where his powers of darkness reign” to fall under his influence instead of approaching Yeshua in heaven. And by faith apprehend our union with Him in Spirit there, so we too, are raised and seated with Him.  

 Jesse Penn Lewis, (1861- 1927) goes on to identify how Yeshua lives within us, Yeshua abides in us by Spirit and through His words.  But He, as a person, is in heaven, and it is only as we abide in Him there, that His Spirit, and His life, through His Word, can be manifested in us here. It’s here we obtain the power of the word through Him as He did His Fathers powers while walking in the flesh. The Lord said “if ye abide in Me (i.e., in the glory), and My words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will…” (John 15:7). “Here is where the depth of our faith is measured, here is where the Holy Spirit begins deepening our walk in Faith!”

Matthew Henry (Oct 18, 1662 – June 22, 1774) relates what we have been taken from and how we remained there: It was not because God did not make himself known to them by his works, but because they would not admit the instructive rays of the divine light. They were ignorant because they would be so. Their ignorance proceeded from their obstinacy and the hardness of their hearts, their resisting the light and rejecting all the means of illumination and knowledge. Their consciences were debauched and seared: Who being past feeling, (Ephesians 4:19). They had no sense of sin, nor of the misery and danger of these, they became slaves and drudges of sin and the devil,  working all uncleanness, with greediness. Observe, When men’s consciences are once seared, there are no bounds to their sins.

 Matthew Henry’s commentary identifies the character of some our lights (Nets) are going to attract and bring forward, are described. This information gives an idea where we were and where those invited individuals are at at the moment they are presented into our personal domain.

I believe John Gill (23 Nov. 1697 – 14 Oct. 1771) gives a description of the life example we should walk by, which when demonstrated to these individuals set before us, could visually minister directly to them as a testimony of God’s love. “Regenerate persons are not as other men. They do not walk in the vanity of their minds as others. Their minds are not empty and vain. But are filled with God, with a saving knowledge of him, with faith in him and love to him, and with Spirit. With his graces and fruits of righteousness, and though there is a significant amount of vanity, instability, treachery, and sinfulness in them, yet their walk and the conversation is not according to this. Nor are their understandings darkened as others; they are enlightened to see their lost state and condition by nature, the plague of their own hearts, the insufficiency of their own righteousness. The way of life and salvation by Yeshua and that salvation from first to last is all grace.”  

Now here is where the enemy hopes to plant seeds into the minds of unsuspecting believers by having the vanity of the mind take hold. Our defense of this is obtaining the knowledge that God is in heaven physically and abides in us by Spirit and through His words, but He, as a person, is in heaven.

We are given a description by  Jesse Penn Lewis, (1861- 1927) of how the enemy counterfeits the presence of God. The powers of darkness counterfeit the presence of God to those ignorant of Satans devices may be somewhat as follows. At some moment when the believer is yearning for the sense of God’s presence, either alone, or in a meeting. And certain conditions are filled, the subtle foe approaches, and wrapping the senses round with a soothing, lulling feeling. Sometimes filling the room with light, or causing what is apparently a “breath of God” by a movement of the air — either whispers “This is the presence you have longed for,” or leads the believer to infer that it is what he desired.

 We can see how important having knowledge of how Satan will subtly work in your life is brought to light in this commentary by Matthew Henry (Oct 18, 1662 – June 22, 1774) from Ephesians 4:28 Notice the particulars wherewith we should adorn our Christian profession. Take heed of everything contrary to truth. No longer flatter or deceive others. God’s people are children who will not lie, who dare not lie, who hate and abhor lying. Take heed of anger and ungoverned passions. If there is just occasion to express displeasure at what is wrong and to reprove, see that it be without sin.We give place to the devil when the first motions of sin are not grievous to our souls; when we consent to them; and when we repeat an evil deed. This teaches that as sin, if yielded unto, lets in the devil upon us, we are to resist it, keeping from all appearance of evil.

Idleness makes thieves. Those who will not work, expose themselves to temptations to steal. Men ought to be industrious, that they may do some good and that they may be kept from temptation. They must labor, not only that they may live honestly, but that they may have to give to others. What then must we think of those called Christians, who grow rich by fraud, oppression, and deceitful practices! Alms, to be accepted of God, must not be gained by unrighteousness and robbery, but by honesty and industry. God hates robbery for burnt offerings.  

Sinful inclinations and desires are deceitful lusts; they promise men happiness, but render them more miserable, and if not subdued and mortified betray them into destruction.

The new man must be put on. It is not enough to shake off corrupt principles, but we must be actuated by gracious ones. We must embrace them, espouse them, and get them written on our hearts. It is not enough to cease to do evil, but we must learn to do well. “ Be renewed in the spirit of your mind (Ephesians 4:23) that is, use the proper and prescribed means to have the mind, which is a spirit, renewed more and more.”   

It is here where the new regenerated soul becomes most vulnerable to the subtle suggestions of the enemy, Jesse Penn Lewis, (1861- 1927) reveals the following Some of the suggestions made to the believer by deceiving spirits at this time, may be:     1).You are a unique instrument for God,” working to feed self-love. 2).You are more advanced than others” working to blind the soul to sober knowledge of itself. 3).You are different from others” working to make him think he needs exclusive dealing by God. 4). You must take a separate path, a suggestion made to feed the independent spirit. 5).You must give up your occupation, live by faith,aiming at causing the believer to launch out on false guidance, which may result in the ruin of his home, and sometimes the work of God in which he is engaged.  

All these suggestions are made to give the man a false conception of his spiritual state; for he is made to believe he is more advanced than actually is, so that he may act beyond his measure of faith and knowledge (Rom. 12;3)

CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert 

What is before us here are convictions, no matter how long you have been walking I believe you are going to find an area in your journey which needs to be put in subjection and brought into submission. When we started this venture, the call came to do an audit and bring our walk into line, not knowing why God called us to walk in His laws again.

I like most thought it was to bring my walk into line then realized it was to become a servant working on my own Salvation to eternity. Then reality struck while I was being obedient my light was getting brighter shining further into the darkness as I gathered and accepted more information and learned how to discern the Holy Spirits teachings. I now understood the feelings Yeshua had for the Samaritan women and why he did what he did. 

Clearly, there is evidence the stony heart I had has been replaced with a fleshly one filled with God’s love and compassion for His children who are snared, trapped deluded and not realizing their fate. 

Now I recognize the joy His Apostles must have felt being physically there while Yeshua walked, taught, ministered, healed, and fulfilled His destiny for us all. As I now walk under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit, I sense the same love and compassion is with us as we receive The Words Son of God’s guidance and protection as the Apostles must have felt as they ventured throughout the lands sharing their light as Beacons. 

I have never felt so much at peace in my life as I am now feeling so comforted knowing that Yeshua is with me as I reflect His light into this darkening world waiting for that one soul looking to connect their light as I once did. 

My joy is being able to share God’s Love to those seeking freedom from the oppression and dangers of this world and once they have found their light become further Beacons for that one soul they may attract.   

Brothers and Sisters, they will know you by your fruits, I pray you will share your light as far as you can. There are too many Spiritual warriors standing on the side lines being wounded and in some cases becoming fatalities because they don’t have the right information about the enemy they are fighting. Too many walking the Broad road to destruction waving their swords in the air believing they’re in the real fight. 

I want to include this statement from Jesse Penn Lewis which wrote in “THE WAR ON THE SAINTS” first published in 1912 some 105 years ago and fittingly describes our churches and spiritual leaders or lack of today. “There needs to be a choice between good and evil perpetually by every man, and the priests of old were specially called to discern and teach the people the difference between ” the holy and the common,” the “unclean and the clean” (Ezek. 44:23). Yet is the Church of Christ today able thus to discern what is good, and what is evil? Does she not continually fall into the snare of calling good evil and evil good? Because the thoughts of God’s people are governed by ignorance, and limited knowledge, they call the works of God. And they are not taught the need of learning to discern the difference between the “unclean and the clean.” Nor how to decide for themselves what is of God, or what is of the devil. Although they are unknowingly compelled to make a choice every moment of the day.”   

Thus, in conclusion, we can see our enemy was just as busy back then as he is today, only I believe he has made some deep in roads. This is why I think the Holy Spirit brought me this Scripture to share as part of the closing Matthew 18: v19. “Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. v20. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.  

CLOSING PRAYER  

 Heavenly Father I kneel before your throne Lord as a humble servant placing before you the many thanks, appreciations, and love from those warriors who have partaken in these teachings through the Holy Spirit. We thank you, Father, for your compassion and patience with us Lord as we clean up our walks. We are grateful to you for the courage you have bestowed upon us to go forward as warriors in your name. We thank you, Lord, for the new heart filled with your Love and compassion for others. We especially thank you, Lord, for being present in our lives as we go forward in your name. We pray this Lord in your name YESHUA Amen and Amen. 

Remember I am a humble servant doing our LORD’s bidding to sound the Trumpet of impending danger to all of His children saved or unsaved. Let your Beacon’s shine bright and profound as though you were casting your nets into the deepest part of the Sea. May you as “Fisher’s of Men” have full nets when they return. 

God bless and God’s Speed. 

Robert

In Him Do I Trust!


A QUESTION

For those about to read this scripture from David in Psalms 16: 1-10. Is your trust as deep as David’s when he flew to God’s protection from the evils of the world? Does your trust in Yeshua a confident one like David’s was (Psalms 16:1 Preserve me, O God!?

Can you pray this in the same confidence that God will keep you from the deaths and especially the sin, to which you are continually being exposed? Can you say like David for in thee, and only in thee, do I put my trust. 

How many understand it is the duty and interest of all to subject our selves to Yeshua who as Adonai signifies My stayer, the strength of my heart. This has to be done with our souls? In this Psalm, we find David showing our Covenanting with God must be a heart-work, that is, all within us must be employed and engaged.

What this means, those who have avowed themselves to the Lord should often put themselves in mind of what they have done. Knowing you have said unto Yeshua, “Thou art my Lord.” Say it again, stand on it, abide by it, and never unsay it.  You have said it? Take comfort in it and always live up to it. And keep your eyes fixed on him then you can know in your heart when you say you trust in him it is really from the heart, not just lip service.

What becomes aware is we are not honouring ourselves, but are in the service for the saints (Psalms 16:2-3). The depth of our devotion to Yeshua, like his devotion to the Father, we like Yeshua must be good and do good and do not expect happiness without goodness.

Whatever goodness is in us or is done by us, we must humbly acknowledge that it extends not to God so we cannot pretend to merit anything by it. The reality to all of this, God has no need for our services he is not benefited by them, nor can they add anything to his infinite perfection and blessedness.

God is infinitely above us, and happy without us, and whatever good we do it is all from him so that we are indebted to him, not he to us. So if God is ours, we must, for his sake, extend our goodness to the saints in the world for what is done to them he is pleased to take us as done to himself, having constituted them his receivers.

It is not enough for us to delight in the saints, but, as there is occasion. our goodness must extend to them we must be ready to show them the kindness they need, distribute to their necessities, and abound in the labour of love to them. 

God disclaims the worship of all false gods and all communion with their worshippers, Psalms (16:4). He reads the doom of idolaters, who hasten after another God, being mad upon their idols, and pursuing them as eagerly as if they were afraid they would escape from them.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied, both by the judgments they bring upon themselves from the true God whom they forsake and by the disappointment, they will meet within the false gods they embrace.

Like David who repeats the solemn choice he made of God for his portion and happiness (Psalms 16:5), take ourselves the comfort of our choice (Psalms 16:6), and give God the glory of it (Psalms 16:7). In its gracious exercises, this is the language of a devout and pious soul.

Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient to our Lord 0103db0c899cd0b8b69538e2367c4fddYeshua as a “Watchman.” I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua.“ “Blessings to All.”  As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength. In the name of Yeshua, we pray Amen and Amen.

Robert
