“But God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, of love, and of a sound mind ! . . . for there is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out all fear . . . !” II Timothy 1:6-7 & I John 4:18
The enemy of all righteousness is working diligently to blind mankind to the great love of God, and he is using the most deceptive means to ensnare even many Christians who profess faith in Jesus Christ.
For the Bible assures us that, “By beholding, we are verily changed into the same image . . . .” II Corinthians 3:18
The Lord Jesus Christ Himself, admonishes us to “Be not conformed to this present evil world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that ye may prove (demonstrate) what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God !” Romans 12:1-2 & Galatians 1:4
He tells us through His prophet, “But My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge !” Hosea 4:6 The LORD weeps as He sees millions being taken captive by the forces of darkness. Those spirits once fallen from heaven, and now working to blind those we see above, from the glorious Light and power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Yehushua ha Moshiac) !
The LORD (Jahovah, Yehuwah) says, “Because thou hast rejected knowledge . . . . rejected the Light of My Word, rejected My instructions in the path of Life, and turned away your ear from hearing My Voice . . . . I will also reject thee !” Hosea 4:6
Jesus says to you and I today, “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of Me, and of My Words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when He cometh in the glory of His Father with the holy angels . . . !” Mark 8:38
The LORD gives us His Words of instruction in the Bible, not to grieve us, but in order that we might be made free, and remain forever in Christ !
“Thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of these nations (gentile, unbelievers). There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination (to foretell the future), or an observer of times (astrology), or an enchanter, or a witch . . . !”
white magic or black magic . . . . it is still witchcraft !
Or a charmer (hypnotist), or a consulter with familiar spirits (yoga, guru, energy healer, qigong practictitioner ect.), or a wizard, or a necromancer (one who apparently speaks with the “dead”). For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD . . . !” Deuteronomy 18:9-12
“Be not ye therefore partakers with them . . . . And have no fellowship with the unfruitful (vain, useless, wasted time) works of darkness, but rather reprove (admonish, convince, convict) them !” Ephesians 5:7-11
Show from your life committed unto the LORD God Almighty, from a Life of holiness and righteousness; show from your Life hidden with Christ in GOD . . . . the power of Light overt darkness !
“For ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation (people), a peculiar (special treasured) people . . . . That ye should shew forth the Praises of Him Who hath called you out of darkness, and into His marvelous Light !” I Peter 2:9
“For ye were sometimes datrkness, but now (even Today, if ye will hear His Voice), are ye Light in the Lord (Sovereign King): Walk then as children of Light . . . !” Ephesians 5:8
“I Am Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End (the Author and the Finisher of your faith). And I will give to him and her that is athirst of the Fountain of the Water of Life ! ref: Isaiah 12:1-6 & ref: Hebrews 12:1-3
And he that overcometh (through faith that is in Me – The Living Word which works in you both to will and to do of My good pleasure), shall inherit all things; and I will be his God (Elohim – Mighty One), and he and she shall be My son (My child begotten anew) ! . . . .
But the fearful (those full of fear), and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers (ref: Matthew 5:21-22), and whoremongers (ref: Matthew 5:27-32) and sorcerers* (spell caster, potion, druggist, poisoner, magician, pharmakia), and idolaters, and all liers . . . . shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone . . . which is the second death !” Revelation 21:6-8
“Blessed and holy is he and she that hath part in the first resurrection (ref: Romans 6:1-6,Galatians 2:20, Ephesians 1:18-21 & Colossians 2:10-13 & 3:1-4) . . . . on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him for a thousand years !” Revelation 20:6
“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober (minded), and hope to the end for the grace* (Divine Influence) that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ ! . . . . As obedient children , not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts (carnal desires), in your ignorance . . . .
“For the times of this ignorance, God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent !”
And as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of your conversation (lives); Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I Am holy . . . !” I Peter 1:13-16 & Acts 17:30
May the LORD bless you and your family this evening and tonight. And may His angels guard and preserve you from all evil !
And may you know the love of Christ, and the power of His resurrection in your own lives, as never before !
your brother and sister in Him,
