A THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

October 13, 2016

I want to bring out a word of caution about this subject. I am seeing such an uptick in the amount of Christians that are turning on other Christians. Let it not be so among us! Be alert to this trick of Satan and do not partake!

Mark 13:12-13  “Now brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 13 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.”

Ephesians 4:31  “Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.”

Now I am not saying to ignore gross errors in doctrine or lawlessness and ungodly living. I’m not talking about that. But I am talking about picking on your brothers and sisters in Christ that believe a little different than you. Maybe you don’t eat meat…..others do. Is that a reason to break fellowship? NO!

One of the other things I see coming on the scene is a dangerous return to the law. Just because people have abused the grace of God, we must not be tempted to go back to the jewish laws. I have even heard some saying that if you call Jesus anything but Yeshua (His name in Hebrew) that He won’t listen. They also come with a spirit of superiority by flashing words in Hebrew to sound “knowledgable”. Knowledge is great, but without humility, it can turn into something ugly.

1 Corinthians 1-3 “….Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.  And if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know.  But if anyone loves God, this one is known by Him.”

Now I study Hebrew too and know quite a few words, I’ve also been to Israel and was blessed by it …..but that does not make me any better or elevate me above my brethren. NO! Ephesians 4:32 tells us how we should treat our brothers and sisters in Christ:

“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

Kind, tenderhearted and forgiving! Which is a far cry from what is out there. I understand there is a HUGE course correction needed in the body of Christ. There is a great number of lukewarm christians that will be spewed out of Jesus mouth. Revelation 3:16
“So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”

So there is correction needed. But remember Paul said to speak the truth in love.

Ephesians 4:15 “…..but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

We, as true believers in Jesus Christ, are a Body! We must look with the others best interest at heart. With lots of love!! Everyone of us who are believers are going through hard times now. We need a lot more love!

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 “ Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
LOVE NEVER FAILS.

I pray you have an awesome day and know that you are deeply loved by your Creator and you Savior Jesus Christ!
