Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Are your ready for my kingdom? Walking in the light and love with your neighbor and with Me?
Suffering with Me, brings about humility, knowing My love strengthens your faith.
My kingdom is full of light, not man made light but My eternal light, it is so bright that only those who are full of My light and love will be able to bear it.
Did I not remind you to keep your lamps full with more to spare, so that you would be full of light.
So much of My word has been picked over, chosen as to what will makes certain teachers comfortable rather then what is needful.
There is a great misunderstanding that I came just to save from hell and then one can go about living their life as they please on earth and then go to heaven when one dies and may enjoy this life to the fullest while spiritual perfection is not even given a thought. My truth is picked over and taught what will benefit them in the physical rather then the Spiritual many today do not even know what My word says, because it is not studied. It is an incorrect interpretation of my word to teach that you can pick and choose what you want in the word and then go to heaven saved.
Yes I came to save you from hell because sin had separated you from Myself and I cannot even look upon sin, sin is darkness and I am all light. How can you think one could live in My Presence while they live in darkness, and not being filled with light before heaven.
By humbling myself and shedding my blood in a perfect sacrifice I opened the door for you to be redeemed, but that did not mean a return to the sinful lifestyle was an option.
I laid my life down for you, and gave you an example to live by. I said sell what you have and follow Me, many just left possessions behind, but they followed me.
I said no to the devils plan to give me all the worlds goods if I would worship him as I fasted 40 days and nights in the wilderness.
Yet he has offered the same thing to many who are called by My name and by taking it, they worship their enemy that hates them, and they do not know what they are doing. The world and all its pleasures is in the devils territory, so he uses it to draw My people away to himself.
The early church did not accumulate possessions, and enjoy a worldly lifestyle as the pagans did.
They were learning how to share in community, they were learning to walk by the spirit, sometimes, even being transported from one place to another, they were learning love and humility, walking in peace praying and caring and helping one another in love.
And sharing the word everywhere they went.
They were able to endure and trust me for the persecution that came upon them, their eyes were not focused on what the government was doing or those around them but they were looking to Me to deliver them.
You will not be able to endure unless you turn from the world and be separate.
This world is passing away.
You will still be in the world, you must work to care for your family but you do not need to be involved in what is going on, you are a holy people, that is what you are being perfected to walk in, holiness. Be ye separate.
I tell you to come out of her and do not partake of her ways, the time is short, and you must be prepared spiritually, do not participate in the worlds games and distractions.
Do not despise suffering it brings about humility and faith, I know those of mine and they are preparing while there is even a little time, but I say do not be involved with the distractions of the world or you will be deceived even as many are now who call themselves mine.
If you seek Me you shall find me, I am not far from you. I love those who love me, and I will give you strength to go through what ever trial I send your way. But your time and focus must be on Me.
Yes beloved My love endures forever, I bring blessing into the lives of those of mine who want to change into My image, you must take the first step by giving Me all of your will, thoughts and emotions, and then I will test you to see where you have grown and will show you and you will be able to see your weaknesses, and grow a little more in each area.
Find a solitary place and seek Me, learn if me for I am meek and lowly of heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Desire to hear from me in My word, you will not be deceived by the false prophets that have entered into the church if you know Me and My word.
The more you know me, the more you can know I will keep you under the shadow of My wings. I am your husband.
