Beacon of Truth
What CAUSES PITFALLS!!
A man is walking with the Lord, following His commands,
(as far as he knows) when WHAM, the devil jumps up and
kicks him right where it HURTS! How can such a thing
happen? Does not the word say..."there shall NO EVIL HAPPEN
TO THE JUST" yes it DOES! So do you blame God when this
happens? Heaven forbid! It is ALWAYS, the man's fault!
This happens when you unknowingly "give the Devil a place"!
The MEANINGS, of Gods words, must be UNDERSTOOD, for a
man of Gods to learn! Gods teaching tool is His word!
Where proverbs says " A just man shall fall seven times,
but he shall get back up!" What CAUSES, these pitfalls
are the seven abominations, that GOD SAYS, are still in a
man's heart, even AFTER HE RECIEVES! (the Holy Spirit).
"When a man first begins to speak aright, (by the spirit)
believest him NOT, for there are still seven abominations
in his heart". When these abominations are EXPOSED, by
the spirit of truth, they are learned, THE HARD WAY!
Your spirit bears witness with them, one at a time, it
temporarily knocks us down, (causes us to give in to
temptation, and SIN) then Christ Himself intercedes and
sends the spirit of conviction upon us, and causes us to
confess it, repent, and turn away from it! This is a
invaluable tool of the Lord, that teaches us all the SAME
WAY, so that we purge thru the fire of the Holy spirit,
each and every abomination! This reaps us MATURITY in the
spirit, and will lead us to KEEP OURSELVES HOLY! So ponder
and think about this for a while and you will come to the
same truth...EVERY PITFALL OF MAN, CAN BE TRACED BACK TO
A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING GODS WORDS! In other words, Every
time we act upon, WHAT WE THINK, OR BELIEVE TO BE TRUE,
INSTEAD OF ACTING UPON..WHAT WE KNOW TO BE THE TRUTH OF
GODS....WE STUMBLE! This is why the Lord said " My people
perish, for a lack of knowledge". If WE KNOW, what the
truth of Gods IS, and act ONLY UPON IT...we would NEVER
stumble! But hey we ALL, have to learn, and this is why
Christ spoke "you have but ONE TEACHER, and He is in
heaven! Praise God! All we need to do is to study Gods
word, after getting the Holy Spirit,and the Lord WILL DO
all of the teaching! If you hunger and thirst after
righteousness, you will be filled, for the Lord sayest so!
He WILL TEACH US ALL, RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENTS, for anything
that you need to decide ANYTHING ON, God already HAS, the
answer! If you will seek His face, to find His will, IN
THE WORD OF GOD, then He will carry you as far as you
want to go with Him! If you want to KNOW HIS WILL, about
anything, THEN KNOW HIS WORD! This IS THE HIGHEST PRAISE
and worship, that a man can give to God..when he FIRST,
SEEKS HIS WILL AND HIS WAY, AND THEN ACTS ON IT, He will
bless them, time and time again! For everytime a man
speaks Gods will, in truth and in spirit, God blesses HIM!
