THE GLADNESS OF HIS TIDINGS - NEWS; INFORMATION

(Acts 21:32) “And now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” “The apostle Paul had no distinctions between men and women, Jew or Gentile, for his claim in (Galatians 3:28) tells us, “So there is no difference between Jews or Gentiles, between slaves and free people, between men and women; you are all one in union with Christ Jesus.” This then is our right to conduct ourselves in the calling He alone Jesus Christ, has called us to be His witnesses in a world of loss of one’s identity through criticism or antagonistic attacks on their credibility of their beliefs and faith in the Lord Jesus and His provisions for their life, amongst the unbelievers who continue to ridicule and make fun of their tactics of faith living by God’s standards and not worrying for anything, but by living a life of “Gladness of His Tidings,” always content and serene, and not wavering to and throw in a sea of uncertainty and fearfullness of demise in one’s living standards or hopes and dreams shattered by “disappointments prevailing curses,” to steal, cheat out of, and rob one of their hopes and dreams fulfilled by God’s promises to them of future events coming to pass in due time, dismissed by a failure of the evidence before them as such in the time they expected for them to come about evidently so.

Jesus never said that it would be easy following Him, but told us in (Matthew 15:10-11) “Listen and understand! It is not what goes into your mouth that makes you ritually unclean; rather comes out of it makes you unclean.” We all presume that just because one person has given their life over to Christ they are saved for life, no! Whenever we doubt God’s Word being the truth, or whenever we criticise or make fun of people who do not do things as we would do them, this is actually the unclean that Jesus spoke about. (Matthew 10:10) gives us a clear instruction of how our conduct should be always trusting Him with gladness for our every need, but never as beggars or impoverished, showing always our “Gladness of His tidings” in all our needs met, as He told us, “Do not carry a beggar’s bag for the journey or a spare shirt or shoes or a walking-stick. Workers should be given what they need.” Here is our conduct plan, to never be anxious for anything, and “Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking Him with a thankful heart. And God’s peace which is far beyond human understanding, will keep your hearts and minds safe in union with Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7).

This then is how we should pray for “Gladness of His Tidings”:

*”Dear Lord Jesus, I have lost my faith at times to unclean thoughts and words I have spoken contrary to what I believe you have told me of future events coming to pass in my life, and those of my family members.Lord Jesus, you warned us of the unclean from our mouths, as words spoken and not the food we eat. I am at fault of having an unclean spirit, and not having a gladness and a joy of
expectation of your tidings daily for me. Lord Jesus, disappointment and doubt have weighed me down at times, with doubt and unbelief for those awaited tidings eventuating ever, at all.

Lord Jesus, I have lost my joy when I have not seen the fruit of my hopes and desires, and prayer petitions to you not yet at hand and evident in my life, or those of my family. Please Lord Jesus, have mercy upon me for I have sinned against you with doubt and unbelief, and a disappointed heart, where from arrogant words of pridefulness have been spoken against you in the times when I have been disappointed and spoken out in my defence of my faithfulness and justification rights to you.
Lord Jesus, I now acknowledge how unclean I am, and ask for your cleansing of all my uncleanness with your precious blood to wash over me inside out, spirit, mind, will, and emotions, that I might always have gladness of heart in the waiting on you to bring all my prayer requests to fruition, and the evidence to be seen by all, with my giving you always the glory, and not for myself in anything I have done to receive the expected and the awaited.

Lord Jesus, I thank you to change my heart, thought and words to line up with yours, in (Matthew 5:16) “Your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven.” So I choose to do likewise Jesus, and may your light shine through me out to others, that they may be drawn to you and receive your blessings too, Amen! To the glory of the Father in Jesus’ name I pray with Gladness of His tidings always, and may the Holy Spirit build me up with holy boldness to withstand, Amen, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lot, Amen. So be it Lord Jesus to do it!”

FATAL ATTRACTIONS LIFESTYLES

(1 Timothy 4:1-6) “The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; they will obey lying spirits and follow the teachings of demons. Such teachings are spread by deceitful liars, whose consciences are dead, as if burnt with a hot iron. Such people teach that it is wrong to marry and to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten, after a prayer of thanks, by those who are believers and have come to know the truth. Everything that God has created is good; nothing is to be rejected, but everything is to be received with a prayer of thanks because the word of God and the prayer make it acceptable to God.”

“God never ordained us to have a life of misery, joyless, and unenterprising, no, He told us to be thankful in all things. We are told in, (Malachi 2:6) tells us how to live in a meaningful and industrious life when we were able to follow His instructions for living in obedience, and then, “They taught what was right, not what was wrong. They lived in harmony with Me; they not only did what was right themselves, but they also helped many others to stop doing evil.” This signifies to us the meaning of God’s principles for living a lifestyle which honours Him and brings His favour into it and into our descendants as well.

We are all compelled by the sixth Commandment, “Do not commit murder.” (Deuteronomy 5:17), and in (Matthew 5:6) we learn from Jesus how we are to be, “Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires; God will satisfy them fully!” These are the words of Jesus speaking against those who do not choose to obey His Commandments, for when someone murders another from having the life that God chose for them, then they have become a part of the evil one’s plans instead, to cheat, steal and destroy, from having harmony one with another under God’s blessings for them.

An example of this is the “fatal attractions lifestyle” which can murder a person’s true identity of being happy, into a life of hatred one for the other. Jesus talked about hatred and anger in (Matthew 5:21-22) “You have heard that people were told in the past, ‘Do not commit murder; anyone who does will be brought to trial.’ But now I tell you; if you are angry with your brother you will be brought to trial, if you call your brother ‘You good-for-nothing!’ you will be brought before the Council, and if you call your brother a worthless fool you will be in danger of going to the fire of hell.”

This depicts the sort of lifestyle one who has been lured into believing the lies told them of flattery and deceit to obtain their attention and favour, will become part of the “fatal attractions lifestyle” of the evil one’s plan to steal, and cheat from having the lifestyle plan of God their Creator, for that which was not intended for their good. We are told as believers to treat others as we would have others treat us, well if one person allows the “fatal attractions lifestyle” to become part of their life, then most certainly all will be forgotten of the lifestyle which brings harmony and a peaceful existence with thanksgiving to God for the good in their lives, but turns around to be a very hard and callous lifestyle of anger orientated lifestyle of regrets and broken promises. This “fatal attractions lifestyle” can happen within any friendship or romantic relationship, becoming a betrayal and one
of murdering the beliefs and expectations of the person who reveals themselves to be the “fatal attractions lifestyle” being connected to them brings. Many people have fallen for such friendships and relationships which sooner or later are exposed and become difficult to separate from, especially if one is married. If it is only a friendship, then excommunicate that person from having your continual friendship to regain your favour, only to give you another disappointment of seeing that they have not changed or mended their ways of deceit. So this I tell you, do not harbour any un-forgiveness towards anyone, but remember you have a choice not to remain with those who lured you into their “fatal attractions lifestyles” to harm and destroy the purpose God created us for His destiny.

This is a simple prayer to release anyone from being trapped already in a “fatal attractions lifestyle,” or anybody who has been betrayed by a friend who has been revealed to have been a deceiver and a liar, to see clearly once again, to regain God’s plan and purpose for their well-being and harmonious life with the true intended friendships and romantic relationships God has intended from the start, before we were inclined to the “fatal attractions lifestyles” –

*”Dear Lord Jesus, you know more about betrayal than any living person, for you hung on that cross, betrayed by the very people to whom you were sent for their salvation by God the Father. I now realize that I also have been betrayed and deceived into believing lies told to me to gain access into my life to receive what I have received through your favours to me. I recognize now that I have fallen for the flattering words told me which have all been proven as lies told me to receive my favour and their approval to gain access into my life to steal, cheat and destroy all that I have from you, to bring misery and hopelessness into my life as a result of the anger and hatred shown to me once their plots and plans were revealed to me by my calling out for your justice in my life.

Lord Jesus, I am truly sorry for the “fatal attractions lifestyle” I have allowed in my life. So I now cast it onto you, with my repentance of it in changing my adherence to not be angry or hateful as a result of my betrayal by those whom I cherished as true and loyal friendships and relationships.I thankyou Lord Jesus for disclosing all the hidden agendas in my life to hurt and dispel me from the life you have already destined for me for my good and thanksgiving to you. I have shown bitterness and rejection to those who have harmed me, so I now repent of anger, resentment, bitterness, and unforgiveness, curses self-imposed and from others as a result of the “fatal attractions lifestyle,” which has been harbouring within me for some time now and not allowing me to move forward in a trusting way. I am sorry for any displays of my anger and disappointments of frustration at the wasted time spent in those erroneous friendships and relationships, by having an outward disregard of trusting my family and loved ones who have always been there for me from long ago with caring hearts and forgiveness always of my mood swings towards them, whenever I recall the past or any present broken friendships and relationships due to betrayal and deceit. I am sorry for taking it out on those who do truly care for me, especially you Lord Jesus, whom I have also blamed for allowing this to happen to me. I am truly sorry for all my sins on this account. I thankyou Lord Jesus to forgive and cleanse me of all my unrighteousness with your precious blood, and I now ask you Father God to now send your Holy Spirit to fill all those areas of my life and body with the perfection of your Kingdom to regain your momentum back into my life for your destiny.

I now ask for your guidance Jesus, for you are the way, the truth, and the life I choose, to direct my steps to those who are sincere and true and loyal, but to be able to discern from the onset of danger, any who are not genuine, that I can set apart from them without delay, and warn others, and they will heed as well.

Lord Jesus, make me the kind of person you created me for your purposes fulfilled and not man’s desires against your will. I dedicate all that I am, and all that I have to you Lord Jesus, Amen!

In Jesus’ name I forgive and forget everything from myself and others for the past and present. I thankyou Lord Jesus to draw your precious bloodline over the whole lots, Amen! So be it Lord Jesus to do it!”

OPPOSITION TO THE CHURCHES


(Mendacity – a spirit of deceit)
 
“Too many folk believe that they are correct and give criticism to all churches for their cult-like manner displayed in various churches around the world, and then base their judgement invariably upon their succession of experiences.
 
God did not say to man to rule over man – but to fellowship together – and to greet one another with a kiss of brotherly love, (Romans 16:16) “Greet one another with the kiss of peace” as for Christ who is the head, and the church- who are the people – to fellowship.
 
Any community of churches governing the people to do as they control over their mindsets, is not of God – (Romans 16:17-18) “I urge you my friends; watch out for those who cause divisions and upset people’s faith and go against the teaching which you have received.  Keep away from them!  For those who do such things are not serving Christ our Lord, but their own appetites.  By their fine words and flattering speech they deceive innocent people.”  Displays this attitude by giving flattering words of acceptance, and pretence just to fill their popularity needs – to show their church is popular by the people’s attendances.  God is not in the number game, for He looks at the heart, and knows the truth – a person who has a genuine servitude to Him, will be sincere, and doing all He can to serve God – no matter how many people are in attendance.
 
The loyalty factor here remains for the pastor, preacher, or priest, to direct all his sermons of the Good News to be directed to all who would hear, and then God through His Holy Spirit will convict each Christian as He ordains.  For we all have need, different it may seem, but all the same.  When a pastor, preacher, or priest give a sermon – only God knows the needs of the people, and He will designate His will to the pastor, preacher, or priest – the exact sermon appropriate for the people in attendance – to hear the Word of the Lord, specifically for them.
 
This means judgement has no place.
 
*Prayer:  “We all believe that God is love and love has no ill-feelings towards others, only a genuine nature to treat others as they would want for themselves.  So let’s all put our different denominations aside, and know that we serve a great God, who is Sovereign above all, and may we receive the grace of the Lord Jesus within us all, and give praise to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all in One, who promotes all the gifts of the Spirit unilaterally within the body of Christ – us His church – for the glory of God the Father, Amen!
 
And may we be forgiven for all our sins with regard to “opposition to the churches by the churches” within my life, to be freed of all accountability to others, but to serve the One True God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Amen!  And we now draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots of differences between us bringing division amongst us on account of “opposition to the churches by the churches,” Amen!  So be it Lord Jesus to do it!”

HOLINESS

"HOLINESS" As it is written in the book of Isaiah 53:11, "After a life of suffering, He will again Have joy, He will know that He did not suffer in vain. My devoted servant, with whom I am pleased will bear the punishment of many and for His sake I will forgive them."

*"Lord Jesus you are my rock of strength and my foundation stone. I give you all that I am, all that you want of me as your obedient servant. I will choose to obey and learn all you have to teach me today and every day of my life for you. I give you praise and I worship your holy name Jesus to make me the person you want me to be, and in Jesus' name I am free indeed of all past and present oppressions by the Evil One's desires for my harm, Amen! In Jesus' name be done to the glory and honour of your name Father God, and may the Holy Spirit guide me in your ways always, to know your way, your truth, and your life for me out of bondages into your Kingdom come living here on earth as it is in heaven give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who have trespassed against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil Amen that we may enjoy the fruits of our labour, to God be the glory in Jesus' name Amen! So be it Lord Jesus do it and I let go and I let God!"

Thank the Lord for these precious words here today.

THE LORD IS GOOD AND HIS MERCIES ARE NEW EVERY MORNING


(Lamentations 3:22-23) 

“This is what is written: The Messiah Jesus Christ was born of a virgin’s womb.  He suffered for our sake that we might have the salvation from eternal death from His presence within us and for us to be kept from His will for us. 

Jesus came that we might have all of His promises to us fulfilled and carried out throughout our lives here on this earth for the Father’s glory, and through Him we can enter into the rest He suffered on the cross at Calvary for our sins to be forgiven, as He was always an example of the Father’s love for us, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have life eternal with Him.”(John 3:16).  This is what we believe as Christians, and so we give our lives in His service, to love and obey the promptings Jesus gives us when He calls us to serve Him, for we are His hands and His feet in our lives for His glory and not ours, ever.  We are the instruments of His love which He gave to us throughout His whole time on this earth as a human being, He experienced everything that we experience and more, so that He could redeem us and save us from the perdition that sin brings when we give up and lash out in a rebellious manner when things don’t appear to be happening as we see it should be.  God has made provision through Jesus Christ who was tempted beyond anything we could ever imagine, so that through Him we can exercise our faith in knowing the truth that, “If Christ be for us who can be against us.  For the Lord is my helper I will not fear, what can anyone do to me?  I will not fear, I will only believe.” (Hebrews 13:5-8).

This is how we stand the testings through life’s circumstances to bring us down to the pits of despair, but Christ Jesus lifts us up from out of many a circumstance which Satan prepares for us to be downcast and in desperation to feel left out and forgotten by Jesus in those trials God allows for us to go through, by standing by faith in what Christ Jesus proclaimed on the cross at Calvary for us, and that is that Jesus became the sacrificial lamb for our sins in our place He suffered death on the cross at Calvary, He conquered death through His body for us and we can obtain forgiveness for everything we have ever done that separates us from having the peace in knowing His salvation for us.  That peace Jesus proclaimed for us when He was resurrected on the third day when He rose from death into the glorified body He has bought with a price for us as well when we finish this life’s race here on this earth obeying His commandments because He told us to, and to give Him our victories through faith in Him, and to trust Him for the moments when people do not accept who we are because of following His instructions to keep ourselves holy, for Him because He loved us before the creation of the  world, and He knows “the plans He has for us, for our good and not to harm us” (Jeremiah 29:11).  He knows us better than anybody, for He was the reason for everything being created by God the Father (John 1:1-4).

The Lord is good and His mercies are new every morning.  Jesus is “The Lord-and the Lord alone-is our God” (Deuteronomy 6:4).  He knows your thoughts and everything you are going to do, even before you do and say them.  Actions are louder than words, so why don’t we admit that with God all things are possible, for Christ came that we might have the freedom to choose, and not to be driven by desires to be what God did not create us to be, anything other than, “good” as He created everything good originally, but because of Adam and Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden, to know what God had forbidden them which is the knowledge of good and evil, from disobeying what God in His love protected them from in His pre-warning them to keep His request to them, in not eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, knowing fully well that there would be a price to pay for disobedience to Him.

God knew that man’s curiosity to know more than what they needed would cause a separation from Him, that’s why when we disobey the Laws He gave to us through Moses, we could not live in peace anymore so He made provision for this outcome whenever we need His forgiveness by Jesus Christ shedding His blood for us on the cross at Calvary, and bringing us the peace of forgiveness for all of our sins, no matter what it is that’s been bothering us to keep us from His gift of peace which is Jesus Christ of Nazareth, for He alone is the peace which surpasses all our understanding.  We must remember Him at the times when we are down, and feel lost from all gladness.

His message to the world is, “Go out and teach the forgiveness of sins through repentance and I will wash away their sins with my blood for all times, when they turn to me in their own time, wherever that is, they choose it and say, *”Lord Jesus I come to you now and ask for your forgiveness of my sins of perdition.  I am truly sorry for losing my hope and faith in you.  Help me by your grace through the Holy Spirit to know you more each day, that I am forgiven through your shed blood for me at Calvary.  I give my life to you, and I ask you to rule and reign in my life that I can endure suffering and self-denial, because you love me, and you want me to live for you and not for my own desires, but for what you created me, and that is your good.  I cannot do it without you Jesus, so I ask you to breathe on me and fill me with (John 20:21-23) the Holy Spirit’s baptism of life for you in keeping myself for good, and not in submitting to the opposite of good which is evil and contrary to your will for me.  Lord I trust you and want you to be my guide through the Holy Spirit’s guidance to keep myself morally good, and free from any compulsions to sin against all you have done for me Lord Jesus, Amen.  So be it Lord Jesus to do it for me now and forever to delight in you all the days of my life for you, Amen.

PIRATING “THOU SHALT NOT STEAL” (Deuteronomy 5:19 NKJV)


“Pirating means: to commit or practice Piracy upon; rob or plunder as a pirate does, to take by piracy.  Someone, who appropriates and produces without authorisation as for his or her own profit.

The law does not permit pirating by no means, yet we are all at risk of doing it.  For example, when we choose to – copy a card and give it away to someone, to copy something off the internet with copyright protection and it comes out in very small print as a result for protection purposes.

When a person does the above it’s called stealing.  When a copywriter takes information for advertisements or publicity releases, he or she will obtain a permit through the right channels of the law, giving them permission to obtain (the exclusive right, granted by law for a certain term of years, to make and dispose of copies of and otherwise to control, a literary, musical, dramatic, or artistic work) according to the Macquarie Concise Dictionary.

We as Christians have been plundering and pillaging without our knowledge of the repercussions to this heinous sin which indicates why many of us have been plundered of our rights.

Pillaging is taking the spoils or the booty of another’s property, in other words – it’s all stealing.  When looking up the word to spoil, the dictionary explains its meaning as (pillage; booty; plunder.  To plunder, to impair; to ruin.  To grow useless; to decay).

When we as Christians become informed of sin in our lives, we have a responsibility to turn it over to Christ Jesus who forgave our sins on the cross at Calvary when Jesus declared, “Forgive them, Father!  They don’t know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 GNT)

This is the only time when we are not stealing, and it’s when we don’t know what we are doing is wrong.  But once the truth of the matter is revealed to us, we must repent and acknowledge our wrongdoing and inform others of the sin, as Jesus instructed in (Luke 17:1-5 GNT) which describes how, “Things that make people fall into sin are bound to happen, but how terrible for the one who makes them happen!  It would be better for him if a large millstone were tied around his neck and he were thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.  So watch what you do!  If your brother sins, rebuke (to reprimand, reproof) him and if he repents, forgive him.  If he sins against you seven times in one day, and each time he comes to you saying, “I repent,” you must forgive him.”  These are our instructions always to have compassion on others as Jesus has upon us when we do not know we have sinned.

So now let go and let God on this heinous sin against God in all our lives and that of our family’s bloodlines:
 
*”Lord Jesus we have all gone astray from your will for us at various times during our lives when we have taken what is not rightfully ours, and committed the offences of pirating which is stealing without knowing.

Lord Jesus I am accountable for my own sins in this regard and I am truly sorry for them, and I also repent of not informing others of this sin.  But I now repent of this sin of pirating for myself and my family, which I now cast onto you Lord Jesus in the acceptance of your forgiveness for this and other sins which have been accounted us as with regard to stealing through pirating.

Jesus your shed blood at Calvary has paid the price for our sins, so I now ask you Jesus to wash and cleanse me, and (names of your family members) with your precious blood, and to sanctify us from sinning in this way ever again through sending us all, the Holy Spirit to give us the insight and wisdom to discern what is right from wrong in our lives.

Lord Jesus we turn away from our sins of pirating, to your provisions instead, and we will rely on your promises to look after every need we have as you declare to us in your Word the Bible, in (Matthew 6:8-15 GNT) “Your Father already knows what you need before you ask Him.  This then is how you should pray:  “Our Father in heaven; may your holy name be honoured; may your Kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today the food we need.  Forgive us the wrongs we have done, as we forgive the wrongs that others have done to us.  Do not bring us to hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One.”  “If you forgive others the wrongs they have done to you, your Father in heaven will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.  Which is the truth that sets us free.

Jesus you alone are ”The Lord, and the Lord alone is our God.” (Deuteronomy 6:4 GNT).  Thank you for dying on the cross for our sins.  I now invite you to be the Lord of my life, and (names of our family members).  Please keep us in your will always, and “May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with everyone.  Amen!

So be it Lord Jesus to do it, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!”

DISCOUNTED


Means: to- fail, omit, take, abuse, decry, deduct, forget, ignore, lessen, rebate
 
*”Lord Jesus the enemy would have us discount you, that you ever existed, or that what you did on the cross at Calvary was insufficient to win the battle over sin and death.
 
Lord Jesus you conquered the grave and all its holdings to keep us from the life of joy you purchased for us on the cross at Calvary and paid for the debt of sin in our life. We repent Jesus, of discounting you in all our ways, whereby sin and all its entrapments have overtaken our lives to be discounted from your best for us.
 
Lord Jesus me, and (your family members names), have been redeemed from the law of sin and death, and we now recognize our sins against you.  And in penitence and true sorrow for our discounting you, ask for your forgiveness.  Help us Jesus never to discount you, so that we can be discounted from having what you died to give us, but we renounce sin and all its effects in our lives to keep us from having what you have counted to us.
 
Lord Jesus please forgive and re-establish our rights once more to be free to receive all that is accounted from you to us as your children, born again to live in your righteousness and truth, Amen.  So be it Lord Jesus to do it, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over all my perditions apart from your will to now be confident in your provisions for me once more, Amen!  To be obedient and loyal to you Jesus, Amen!  
 
(Matthew 6:15) “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.”

IN COMPLIANCE TO DO HIS WILL

(1 Peter 5:1-11) (GNT)  “I who am an elder myself, appeal to the church elders among you.  I am a witness of Christ’s sufferings, and I will share in the glory that will be revealed.  I appeal to you to be shepherds of the flock that God gave you and to take care of it willingly, as God wants you to, and not unwillingly.

Do your work, not for mere pay, but for a real desire to serve.  Do not try to rule over those who have been put in your care, but be examples to the flock.  And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the glorious crown which will never lose its brightness.

In the same way you younger people must submit yourselves to your elders. And all of you must put on the apron of humility, to serve one another; for the Scripture says, “God resists the proud, but shows favour to the humble. 

Humble yourselves then, under God’s mighty hand, so that He will lift you up in His own good time.  Leave all your worries with Him, because He cares for you.

Be alert, watch out!  Your enemy, the Devil, roams around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.  Be firm in your faith and resist him, because you know that other believers in all the world are going through the same kind of sufferings.”

*Thankyou Holy Spirit for me, and (any of your family members names),  to be in compliance to do His will, according to (1 Peter 5:10-11) “But after you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who calls you to share His eternal glory in union with Christ, will Himself perfect you and give you firmness, strength and a sure foundation.  To Him be the power for ever, Amen!”

PRIDE & PARANOID & OBLIGATION TO AN IDOL OF LUSTFULNESS FOR WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE & A TROPHY IMAGE


(Proverbs 8:10) “Choose My instruction instead of silver; choose knowledge rather than the finest gold.”  This means that we are to instruct others in the way of the Lord only upon their invitation, for “Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.” (Hebrews 12:2-3).
 
*”Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth I have wanted what is not mine, through claiming what is not mine to do.  I have stepped in ahead of you in wanting what is not mine to give and that is your salvation for others.  Lord I have wanted to be a witness to achieve their salvation as a trophy of my good works for you, for all to see.  Lord Jesus I am culpable of having a demonic presence of “pride and obligation to an idol of lustfulness for what I do not have and a trophy image” of myself which is totally against all your teachings about salvation.  For we are saved by your grace Jesus with our unmerited favour, but your will be done on earth as it is in heaven alone.  For you alone are the Lord and the Lord alone is our God, Amen!  (1 Corinthians 2:12) “We have not received this world’s spirit; instead we have received the Spirit by God, so that we may know all that God has given us.” This is true and valuable insight for those who are steadfast in Christ’s salvation, but I have transgressed against you Lord Jesus wanting what only you can give which the world finds foolish, and that is your saviour image to set free those whom I have judged with my pride and arrogance of not being saved in my eyes.
 
Lord Jesus I know that I have committed a heinous act contrary to your will for me and those whom I entertain and have a life with, to feel that I am responsible for their salvation, and according to (Matthew 19:20) “I have obeyed all these Commandments” the young man replied.  “What else do I need to do?”  Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; then come and follow me.”  Lord Jesus I am a sinner in this regard, help me Jesus to let go of all those people in my life for whom I do not have any obligations to save them, onto you Lord Jesus, I let go of them and I let God on them all, please Lord Jesus forgive me of all my sins on this account, and bring me your Holy Spirit of truth, Amen!
 
So be it Lord Jesus to do it.  And I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!  And as the young man in (Matthew 19:22) that “When the young man heard (what Jesus had said to him) he went away sad,” Lord Jesus I draw the bloodline of your precious blood over this whole matter in my life now and forevermore Jesus my Lord and my Saviour, Amen!
 
Your example of not being attached to that young man Jesus, tells us to let go and let God on any who would not be saved by us, Amen!”
