Hello Brothers and Sisters,
Do you know why you are here on this earth? To be found worthy or not worthy of our Father's House. A House built for His true children. A House that is the Universe with innumerable mansions which are planets with wonders that we cannot even begin to imagine. I look at this mansion Earth that our Father built for us and all its wonders that we know so little about in truth and it shows me I know very little of the wonders of our Father.
Our Fathers House is a house of purity and cleanliness without spot or wrinkle. A House of righteousness and love for one another. These are some of the physical descriptions of Father's House. The spiritual house is us that can be described with the very same words.
Gen 7:1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
Heb 3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
He that is righteous will be invited into Father's House.
Gen 17:12-13 And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed. He that is born in thy house, and he that is bought with thy money, must needs be circumcised: and my covenant shall be in your flesh for an everlasting covenant.
The Eighth day is representative of the eighth great day in God's House. This is the day after the final judgment for this earth. All those in the House of God will have been circumcised in their hearts. They will have used their earthly life to learn of God and His Love. They will understand the righteousness and goodness that is God and willingly want to live this way. They will realize that these attributes are life and life eternal. The covenant our Father put forth in writing with His own finger, the Ten Commandments are this righteousness we speak of and given to us for our own good.
An Everlasting Covenant.
Gen 19:10-11 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
This is an example also, these men whom put forth their hand are the Angels sent by the LORD to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah for their wickedness. Lot was trying to protect them from the men of the city. The men were smote with blindness for they would have none of the truth but continued in their own lusts of the flesh. This is much like the strong delusion which the LORD will send unto the men of the earth for their desire to follow that which is evil in the sight of the LORD.
King David realized the Glory of our Father...
LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.
One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.
He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.
Just imagine if the tiniest bit of evil were allowed into this House of Glory, what would happen in the long term. All the beauty and glory would eventually become infected with this seed. God will not allow this in His House. Thank you Father!!!
Speaking of our earthly life and using it to learn of the way to eternal life. God helps us all the way through this time given to us. He allows us to encounter many tests and trials along the way so that we may learn and grow in strength. These tests and trials are mostly made up of our own doings by the choices we make or the lack of choices we make. But each trial brings a lesson if we would look for it. To grow us into the wisdom and understanding intended with each trial. God loves us enough to let us have complete freedom to do as we wish. The actions of us show Father our heart and desires. Not that He needs our actions to know us for He knows every hair on our heads and every thought we have. If you have measured righteousness by His standard (Ten Commandments) then you know what is true Righteousness and Godliness which is Good.
1 Kings 1:52 And Solomon said, If he will shew himself a worthy man, there shall not an hair of him fall to the earth: but if wickedness shall be found in him, he shall die.
2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
Father God's way is perfect, the word of the LORD is tried. It has been since God has been. No beginning and no end. It has been in all things ever created and God has seen and known every possible outcome for all things. There have been many mansions (planets) in God's house (universe) thru out all ages and He knows what will live and what will die.
Dan 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Zec 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
Heb 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
1 Peter 1:7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
Rev 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
Fear not these trials brethren but embrace them as much as ye can. It is not easy. Remember Jesus is the fire of God and it goes before Him. This fire purifies and judges all that is not of God. God is righteousness and righteousness is good that is eternal.
The hour of temptation is come on the world and growing quickly. The separation of the sheep and the goats is occurring.
Rev 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Word of my patience...........what is this? If we keep it our Lord will keep us from this hour of temptation, to try them that dwell upon the earth. I don't know about you but I want to be kept from this temptation. Let's see what this word of patience is....
Luke 8:15 But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
Luke 21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.
Rom 5:1-5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
Above James says it so well... to be full (thankful) and hungry that we may continually seek at the same time.
Rev 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
And finally the one that sums it up perfectly:
Rev 14:10 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus
There seems to be many Christians that think the covenant for us written with God's own finger on the Tables of STONE and placed in the ARK of the Covenant for all eternity is no longer valid.
Nothing could be further from the Truth and don't let anyone convince you of this false doctrine. The very life of our Lord Jesus Christ was to show us the way to eternal life. He lived this covenant and showed us we can live this covenant. When you realize Jesus Christ is God with us you then know He is the covenant....Written in STONE ( the corner stone of the foundation ) and then placed in the ARK ( as we are when we live the covenant ) This covenant ( the ten commandments ) is for our good, so that we may live in righteousness and love one another as God does.
The sacrifice Jesus willingly made was the earthly death of perfect love and obedience for our sins.
The wages of sin is death and the ultimate sacrifice had to be made so we would have the opportunity to repent and be saved from this death. An eternal death not just an earthly death but spiritual death as well. For years the death of innocent animals was made for man's sins. God said enough....
Thru Moses He gave to us written with His own finger a covenant to live by to show us the way to eternal life. Because the people didn't abide in this covenant for various reasons and continued to kill innocent life for their sins and continually bring these sins before God, out of extreme love for His children ( you and me ) He created a special human being (Jesus Christ) to dwell in and walk amongst His children (you and me) to physically show us the way. Jesus physically fulfilled this covenant and showed us how to love and live.
The Grace which is the Lord Jesus is a gift to those who choose to accept it. In accepting it you are testifying before God and all man that you will live by this covenant.
Romans 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
We shall be saved by His life...........Be ye holy as I am holy
Luke 1:75 In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
Rom 6:22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
Eph 4:24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
1 Th 3:13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.
Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Our Father is love ... the lengths He has gone to show us just how much He is love is unimaginable.
This earthly life is nothing more or less than our proving grounds to become worthy to dwell eternally in the Glory which is our God and our Eternal Father.
He has done already so much more than I could ever thank Him for, the very least I could imagine doing for you and my Father is to share His Word and Truth. The righteousness and holiness of Him is in all of us.
Let us choose to us judgment: let us know among ourselves what is good.
May God Bless with wisdom and understanding...
