Jesus maker of Heaven and Earth came first for the Jewish people. The people of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He told Peter three times to love his flock. He insisted that anyone breaking the least of the commandments should be considered to be least in the Kingdom.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Why then have they become so important to so many? Why do so many not insist they fall in line with the true teachings of Christ? Who is winning whom? If you are calling it, grace should you not first be saved to be in grace? Saved repentant sinners do not place obstacles in a blind man’s path, in fact, to do so would make the person doing it just as blind. Are the blind and unsaved under grace?
Why do we try to reach out to the lost who are further from Christ and not correct and save those that are closer to Christ? Speaking in tounges and flopping on the floor does not prove one is saved, the HOLY SPIRIT groans within us and is not those groanings to win the lost? Does not the spirit rejoice in the word and the law? Win those closer to Christ and have an army to save the others. All they need to do is repent and be “Born Again” and filled with the HOLY SPIRIT who leads us into all truth.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.
We that are bought and under the blood should consider whom it is we are trying to win to the kingdom. Kingdom people seek to win others to the kingdom. For the Kingdom came first for the Jew and then because they would not receive the Son he offered him to the Gentiles. There are more of us than there are of them, so why haven’t we won them and have done as Christ asked?
Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying, You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing? Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all? Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it? Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets. The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
Darkness has us always looking in the wrong place when the answer is so simple and clear.
When Jesus say’s it will be like the days of Noah marrying and giving in marriage until they entered the ark. The question I ask is, so what’s wrong with marrying and giving in marriage? Especially today when we need to have men and women showing those who are wrong what marriage is supposed to be. Jesus loves weddings HE performed his first Miracle at a wedding. (Think the first shall be last.) What percentage of water are we?
Darkness has many looking at Genesis 6 and standing on that while those of us in the light see it altogether different.
For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The G-d of the whole earth shall he be called. For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy G-d. For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer. For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
We were asked to make Israel Jealous to have them want what we have regarding a relationship with G-d. Mine is not unique for all can hear from G-d equally the same as I when one chooses the right path and diverts not to the left or the right but stays the course.
Do not let anyone bend your will away from the will of G-d if it is evident he or they do not know G-d’s will. What if the first covering had not allowed others to manipulate him and make them their leader? Instead, he did just as G-d required and led them back to worship in Spirit and in Truth? What if Adam said nothing to Eve about the tree? It was a word only given to him by G-d; HE never gave it to Eve. HE could have restored Eve under Adams reign on the earth, but because Adam failed we all fell under the curse.
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
The number one goal is to win the world to Jesus, that none perish that all come to repentance?
I say then, Hath G-d cast away his people? G-d forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. G-d hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to G-d against Israel, saying, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of G-d unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded (According as it is written, G-d hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them: Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway. I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? G-d forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness? For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office: If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead? For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.
If we are called to make the Jews jealous, then the least in the kingdom failed!
Those who sided with her, second to least in the kingdom. Not hard to figure out who the headless saints are in the tribulation.
Laban was an idolater, and they have a tendency to make everyone work harder for what G-d freely desires to give us Love and Romance.
