We know who is unsaved!

Matthew 19:16 Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?”
17 So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
18 He said to Him, “Which ones?” Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 
19 ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”
20 The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”
21 Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.”

Clearly, it’s the commandments that make all of the difference, and the keeping of them draws a line between those who are saved, and those who because they are lawless are unsaved.

Many of us know how to identify the unsaved, but are not going to say anything to them, to help them find their way. Why?

I can only guess! Fear of rejection, or perhaps they’re just satisfied with the notion that they themselves are saved, and feel that’s sufficient for the need.

But perhaps they don’t know what it means to be a watchman.

Ezekiel 3: 17“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore, hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me: 
18When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 
19Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.”

Therefore, if we have in our possession, the truth of God’s word, perhaps then we should consider helping those who have been deceived. For they will most assuredly die the eternal death.

Opening the eyes of a blind man is a wonderful experience.

But the main thing is to deliver the Word of God to those who are living in darkness.

Whole churches will die unless we do this.

Didn’t Y’shua say, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 
22Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 
23And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
(Matthew 7:21-23)

Obviously, Y’shua is speaking of people who worship Him, calling Him Lord, a church! But they don’t keep God’s Torah / Commandments.

So, we know who that is! It’s our traditional Christian churches. These are those who preach grace without obedience. According to Christ Y’shua they will hear Him say, “depart from me, I never knew you.” At the time of judgment. Because of their Lawless disobedience.

But perhaps our sin is even worse, because we will stand by and watch as they are cast into the furnace. Having kept the truth to ourselves, we have remained silent while they die.

Perhaps while we examine ourselves, to see if we are truly in the faith, we should consider this one thing. Our refusal to share the light of God’s Word.

2nd Corinthians 13:5Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Y’shua / Jesus Christ is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified.

Perhaps it’s time to rise up, and be the witnesses we are all called to be.

My burden is Light!

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The farther we move toward our future in this world, the more we will be persecuted for our faith in Yahshua Christ, because we bear His holy name, and walk in His ways.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Vs 6)

Ever since Christ was born 2000 years ago, there has been a resistance, but for a time we had a government that pretended to be Christian. They acted in a way that demonstrated a corresponding belief because of most people were committed to Christ, but that did not stop them from doing evil.

Now they have brought thousands, even millions of people into this country that are staunchly Against Christianity. And they have since announced that evangelical Christians are a hotbed of potential terrorism.

So now they will come against those who are leaning on a Constitution written by Christians, for a nation that was intended to be a refuge for persecuted Christians.

On the base of the statue, we find this excerpt from a poem penned by Emma Lazarus in 1883.   

“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.”

Obviously, this nation was intended for those whose fervent desire was freedom. All of the things our constitution stands for, made us a light to the entire world. And persecuted Christians, Catholics, and Jews, would find a home here and live free!

Because the nations have come against Christ now, we will bear the burden of that persecution intended for His shoulders to bear. But then, isn’t that the way that Christians have lived for centuries, because Christ brought the truth, and confronted the lies.

John 15:18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 
19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 
20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.

He knew this would happen, and the reason he knew, is because the world and it’s governments will never tolerate the Kingdom of Heaven. They cannot build a house on lies and then accept the truth.

Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. (Vs 7)

If America will remain the domain of Christ, then Christians are going to have to make it what it was intended to be by those who took it away from our previous tyrant, King George. For they created this nation and dedicated it to Christ our God.

“On April 30th, 1789, America had a Constitution and a newly formed government. On that day, the government, the House, and the Senate gathered for the Inauguration of our first president, George Washington. In his Inauguration Address, Washington gave a prophetic warning: “We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and the right which heaven itself has ordained.” Washington’s warning was, if we would begin to depart from God, He would remove His blessings, His prosperity and His protection from our nation.”

This is our Country! God’s gift to His people, it’s not intended for those who despise Christ or His church. And because of this we are going to have to decide if we will surrender the light, to the forces of darkness.

Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 
15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Yes! We, you and I, are the light of the World, either we have taken on that Yoke or we have not. Which is it?

Can we imagine a world without that light, a world without America?

Our founders made it so that we could fight to keep it, just as they did to found this nation. Take up your cross and become a modern-day Maccabee.

The ultimate survivor.

Isaiah 13:11 “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.
12 I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.

Consider for a moment what YHVH Is about to do to the world, and its people. Most of us have no idea what the Creator is able to do. And because of our rebellion and our evil ways we will experience His anger and His wrath.

He says, “I will punish the world for its evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; I will halt the arrogance of the proud, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” (Verse 11)

He is going to humble those who have expressed their pride before Him, and turned from Him to serve Satan. Yes, there is something very humbling about the earth moving under our feet. Entire seas, will relocate, mountains will come tumbling down, and no man can stand on His feet.

Everyone, even the most vile and evil person, will be crying out to Him, as these things come to pass. And all of these things we used to love and tout before Him will fade away in seconds. Money, sex, and power, are not going to be a concern any longer, but life is going to be the total summation of our cry.

Nevertheless, we will die! By the thousands, and by the millions, YHVH God will put us in the proper place for our kind. And the gates of hell will overflow with the souls of those who shunned the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

He tells us, “I will make a mortal more rare than fine gold, a man more than the golden wedge of Ophir.” (Vs 12)

It will be difficult to even find a living human being after this, but those who survive are more precious to Him than we can imagine. For there has never been a time when YHVH God had no remnant at all. A few will survive, and these few will worship Him according to His will, and will know and understand His Word. For they have walked in close relationship with Christ the Messiah, and practiced keeping his Commandments. Some will live, but not all, and it will be as if they were hand-picked.

“Therefore, I will shake the heavens, and the earth will move out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts and in the day of His fierce anger.” (Vs 13)

Think about it. The earth will move out of her orbit, or the poles will shift. Perhaps all of the above, it will visit upon human kind something they have never imagined.

YHVH is angry, so angry that he has even sacrificed His Son for us, and still we paid no heed. We made excuses for not coming to Him in obedience, because we loved our sin more that Christ Yahshua. We twist His Words, and even add to His Word things that were never spoken of by YHVH. We ignored the Word as it was given, and made it as if it was what we wanted to hear rather than the truth.

God entrusted Mankind with His instructions, and we would not abide in it. I can certainly understand His wrath. But then, He is my Father, He created me, and I know it from the depths of my soul.

Isaiah 14:1 For the Lord will have mercy on Jacob, and will still choose Israel, and settle them in their own land. The strangers will be joined with them, and they will cling to the house of Jacob. 

Here is where we will find the survivors.

Shalom my friends,
