Ethics K l Independence of a Christian

Independence of the Christian

“I want to remind you that Abraham did not know exactly where he was going when God told him to move away from his family and home. (Genesis 12:1 )  He just knew the amount of information God had given him.  As Abraham obeyed and journeyed, he received more and more of the picture.  We read that because of his faith and obedience, Abraham is called the friend of God today. (James 2:23)” Pastor Paine. www.cfcmi.org It Is Important to note that this is is a time in our nation when people need to see hope in Christ Jesus more than ever. Debt has skyrocketed. Nuclear War seem nearly at hand. Ethics in the population are by Gods Standards in Jeapordy of being tossed out the window. God will gently guide those that are with young if they listen to him closely. And He will often interfer if those that believe in him are in mortal danger. David proved this when he slew his Giants. And his men slew theirs.

If someone asks you- “Prove God wants to help his people.” or if any of us are asked- “Is there a God?” Respond: “That next beat of your heart. Make it happen.” (Pastor Paine. Victory cd. www.cfcmi.org) What was happenning in the world back in the 1700’s is happening today. “Those principles, dishonorable to those who adopted them, and destructive to those to whom they were applied, were nevertheless carried into execution by the foes of liberty and of mankind… The power, however, and the cunning of our adversaries, were alike unsuccessful. We refused to their parliaments an obedience, which our judgments disapproved of: We refused to their armies a submission, which spirits unaccustomed to slavery, could not brook.”” {Source: Journals of the Continental Congress 1774-1779 Edited from the original records in the Library of Congress by Worthington Chauncey Ford; Chief, Division of Manuscripts.

Mat 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: Mat 7:8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

See? Gods bigger than any thing we could possibly imagine. Do not doubt his power. Do not doubt he will help preserve souls. Take your Whippings like Job did. Recognize you don’t know Gods whole plan. (Job 1:20 ¶ Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, Job 1:21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. Job 1:22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly. Job 42:1 ¶ Then Job answered the LORD, and said, Job 42:2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. Job 42:3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Job 42:4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. Job 42:5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Job 42:6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes. Job 42:7 ¶ And it was so, that after the LORD had spoken these words unto Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath. Job 42:8 Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams, and go to my servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering; and my servant Job shall pray for you: for him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye have not spoken of me the thing which is right, like my servant Job.

Jesus’ll take it from here. Stand Back and Stand fast. Hold onto your integrity.

Job 2:9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. Job 27:5 God forbid that I should justify you: till I die I will not remove mine integrity from me.

Job 2:10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

First off some might say: “If God loves us so much why would he allow this type or any type of pain?”

Ro 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? Ro 9:22 What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: Ro 9:23 And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Ro 9:24 Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? Ro 9:25 ¶ As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

also vizualize: Joh 15:1 ¶ I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Joh 15:2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Joh 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Joh 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

Mr 10:29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, Mr 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. Mr 10:31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

These three Precepts allow the concept to form. Paul describes Christs Precept to the educated:

2Co 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 2Co 12:8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 2Co 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2Co 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 2Co 12:11 ¶ I am become a fool in glorying; ye have compelled me: for I ought to have been commended of you: for in nothing am I behind the very chiefest apostles, though I be nothing. 2Co 12:12 Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds. 2Co 12:13 For what is it wherein ye were inferior to other churches, except it be that I myself was not burdensome to you? forgive me this wrong. 2Co 12:14 Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. 2Co 12:15 And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved.

Satans Empire Behind the Iron Curtain has Vanished. He is Fighting mad. His cover is blown. He is moving every last chess peice has has all at once. But he doesn’t have the Trump of God. God does. He might decide to call Gods “Bluff” today. Jesus Doesn’t Bluff. Ask yourself, have each of us done all we can do while it is yet today? is there a lacking in our life? If there is then fix it before you go to bed: make that phone call; do that one good worke all of us are ordained to. Whatever it is. For most Its just getting Baptized calling on the name of Jesusby someone who has has done likewise. Viz:

Ac 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Ac 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

Ro 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Ro 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Ps 103:17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;

Gods Love is an everlasting Love. It will never Fade from the Souls that obtain it and hold it through to the end of their life on Earth.
