Becoming the son of God - Part 4



JESUS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT KNEW THAT GOD LOVED HIM.
EVEN THOU HE, (JESUS), KNEW WHAT HIS SOLE PURPOSE WAS ON EARTH. HE, (JESUS) STILL EMBRACED AND ACCEPTED THE WILL OF HIM, (GOD) THAT WAS SENDING HIM.
JESUS BEING IN THE WORLD, WAS NOT IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD BUT WAS IN LOVE WITH GOD, HIS FATHER.
IN 1 JOHN 2 :15-16, THE WORD OF GOD INSTRUCTS US TO NOT BE IN LOVE WITH THE WORLD. 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. FOR ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD IS THE LUST OF THE FLESH AND THE LUST OF THE EYES AND THE PRIDE OF LIFE, IS NOT OF THE FATHER, BUT IS OF THE WORLD. AND THOU SHALT LOVE THE LORD THY GOD WITH ALL THINE HEART AND WITH ALL THY SOUL AND WITH ALL THY MIGHT.
AS THE SON OF GOD, JESUS DID NOT ALLOW ANYTHING TO COME BETWEEN HIM AND HIS LOYALTY AND LOVE FOR GOD THE FATHER. WHEN CHRIST WAS BEGINNING TO SUFFER, HE COMFORTED HIMSELF WITH THREE SIMPLE WORDS, "GOD LOVES ME". WHATEVER YOU MAY BE SUFFERING WITH OR THROUGH, ENCOURAGE YOURSELF BY KNOWING THAT GOD, THE CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE LOVES YOU.
REMEMBER THE JOY OF THE HYPOCRITE IS BUT FOR A MOMENT, BUT THE JOY OF THE LORD FOR THOSE THAT ABIDE IN HIM , IS FOREVER. DEATH FOR JESUS MEANT HE HAD TO BE OBEDIENT TO THE FATHERS WILL.
IMAGINE TELLING JOHN JOHN THAT HE IS GOING TO BE SEVERLY BEATEN BY HIS FATHER WHEN HE TURNS TWELVE. DO YOU THINK THAT HE WILL BE LOOKING TOWARDS HIS TWELTH BIRTHDAY? JESUS, AS MIRACULOUSLY AS IT SOUNDS, WAS NOT FAZED BY THIS AT ALL. HIS HEART WAS FIXED TO DO THE WILL OF GOD. ARE YOU? HE SPOKE THE FATHERS WORDS AND DID THE DEEDS OF HIS FATHERS WILL.

WE MUST PUT OFF THE DEEDS OF DARKNESS AND PUT ON LOVE WHICH IS THE PERFECT BOND OF THE UNITY IN CHRIST. THE PLAN FOR CHRIST'S DEATH ON THE CROSS WAS MORE THAN JUST A PLAN TO SAVE US FROM ETERNAL DEATH.
FROM BEGINNING TO END, JEUS SHOWED US HOW TO LIVE A LIFE UNTO GOD AND NOT TO OURSELVES. WHEN WE REFUSE TO LOVE AS GOD LOVES, WE SHOW JESUS THAT HIS DEATH DID NOT, AND IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO CURE US FROM THIS SELF CENTERED LOVE AFFAIR THAT WE HAVE WITH OURSELVES. WE ARE GOING TO DO WHAT MAKES US HAPPY, SATISFY OUR DESIRES AND DO THINGS OUR WAY. HUMAN LOVE IS OFTEN UNFAIR, PARTIAL AND PREJUDICE. THEREFORE IT IS UNRIGHTEOUS LOVE.
BUT TRUE LOVE ONLY COMES FROM GOD, AND IS RIGHTEOUS, IT IS THOUGHTFUL, COURTEOUS AND BEARS THE PAIN AND HEARTACHE AND ITS VERY CAREFUL TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS. JESUS DID ALL OF THESE THING AS THE SON OF GOD.
WHAT SHALL YOU BE? WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE? EVERY DAY OF THE LIFE OF CHRIST HE GLORIFIED GOD. IS THE GLORY OF THE FATHER YOUR MAIN FOCUS? IS THE SPIRIT AND LOVE OF GOD RADIATING FROM YOU? ARE PEOPLE EXPERIENCING THE PRESENCE, PEACE, AND LOVE OF GOD WHEN YOU ARE PRESENT? OR ARE YOU SO CAUGHT UP INTO YOUR LIFE AND SURROUNDING CIRCUMSTANCES THAT IT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO HEAR FROM GOD?

THE SON OF GOD CAME TO GIVE LIFE. WHAT ARE YOU GIVING? INSPITE OF WHAT WE DO OR HAVE DONE, GOD PROMISED IN HIS WORD THAT HE WOULD NOT TAKE HIS LOVING KINDNESS AWAY. (PSALMS 89: 33). WE MAY BE CHASTENED BUT NEVER DISOWNED, WE MAY BE CAST DOWN BUT NOT CAST OUT. THE FAVOR OF GOD CONTINUES TO FLOW TO US.
WE MAY FELL UNWORTHY BUT THANK GOD THAT HIS MERCY AND LOVE IS LAID UP FOR US AND ENDURES FOREVER. PSALMS 89: 34-37 SAYS THAT MY FAITHFULNESS SHALL NOT FAIL, MY COVENANT WILL I NOT BREAK, I WILL NOT PROFANE NOR POLLUTE MY COVENANT; I (GOD) WILL HAVE A CHURCH IN THIS WORLD. SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE WILL STAND FOR ME IN THIS DAY AND AGE AND BE THE SON OF GOD THAT THE WORLD IS WAITING TO SEE. THE SON OF GOD WILL SHINE AGAIN ON THIS EARTH AND WHEN ITS ALL SAID AND DONE WE SHALL SHINE IN HEAVEN WITH OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.
GOD IS FULFILLING HIS HIS WORD RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES, BUT WE ARE TO SELF CENTERED TO WITNESS HIS MOVEMENT. IN JOEL 2:28, GOD SAID I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT UPON ALL FLESH AND YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS SHALL PROPHESY, YOUR OLD MEN SHALL DREAM DREAMS AND YOUR YOUNG MEN SHALL SEE VISIONS;

I SAY TO JOHN JACOB (J J), MICAH, ZION (GATOR, SPARE PARTS), KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING. STAY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD.

AND JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, NO MAN, HAVING PUT HIS HAND TO THE PLOUGH AND LOOKING BACK IS NOT FIT FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD. THE WORD FIT MEANS SUITABLE. LOOKING BACK ON ALL YOUR TROUBLES, CARES, ETC, DEEMS YOU NOT SUITABLE FOR THE SERVICE OF GOD. GOD CAN'T USE YOU IF YOU KEEP LOOKING BACK. I HAVE LAID MY HAND TO THE PLOW AND I PRESS FORWARD TOWARD THE MARK OF MY CALLING. NO MATTER HOW TOUGH THE GOING WILL BE, I HAVE NO THOUGHT OF LOOKING BACK, NEVER LOOKING BACK TO HOW LIFE WAS BEFORE. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT GOD IS LOOKING FOR A DEDICATED PERSON OR PERSONS THAT WILL FOLLOW HIM FROM BEGINNING TO END.
MARY MAGDALENE, AFTER HER CONVERSION, FOLLOWED JESUS ALL THE WAY TO THE GRAVE. SHE GAVE UP HERSELF TO FOLLOW AFTER CHRIST. REMEMBER JESUS AND WHAT HIS SOLE PURPOSE WAS? DO YOU REMEMBER OR BETTER YET DO YOU REALIZE WHAT YOUR PURPOSE IS ON THIS EARTH?

IN CONCLUSION, I BELIEVE THAT GOD HAS GIVEN US AMPLE TIME TO FULFILL OUR FLESHLY DESIRES. FAR TO LONG WE HAVE ALLOWED OUR EARTHLY DESIRES AND CARES TO OVERRIDE THE SPIRT AND WILL OF GOD IN OUR LIVES. I ALSO BELIEVE THAT NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL FLESH TO BE SILENT BECAUSE THE LORD HAS GOTTEN UP FROM HIS HOLY HABITATION. GOD TOLD US THAT HE IS GOING TO DO A NEW THING, BUT MOST OF US DONT LIKE NOR ARE WE WILLING TO ACCEPT CHANGE. WE CAN NOT CONTINUE , NOR WILL GOD ALLOW OUR FLESH TO OBJECT AGAINST THE METHODS OF HIS WILL. REMEMBER THE VISION FROM THE OVERSEER. GOD IS GIVING OUT INSTRUCTIONS, BUT TO THOSE THAT FLINCH AT HIS WILL, HE IS ALLOWING YOUR FLESHLY DESIRES TO TAKE YOU OVER AND HE IS PASSING YOU BY.

SUDDEN DESTRUCTION WILL ALSO COME. IT IS TIME TO LET GOD HAVE HIS WAY AND WE BE IN AGREEMENT WITH WHATEVER GOD DOES. GOD HAS GOTTEN UP AND THE ENEMIES OF THE CHURCH SHALL BE SILENCED. ALL INIQUITY IN THE CHURCH WILL CEASE. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD. JUST AS JESUS NEVER MURMURED NOR COMPLAINED ABOUT THE WILL OF GOD FOR HIS LIFE, NEITHER SHOULD WE. DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES OR DO YOU EVEN DESIRE TO BE A SON OF GOD? TEXT WAS TAKEN FROM

JOHN 15:10, 1 JOHN 2: 3, PSALMS 89: 33-37, ZEC 2:13, LUKE 9: 62, JOHN 20: 15-18

I PRAY YOU BE BLESSED BY THIS WORD. TRULY EXAMINE YOURSELF, SEE WHERE YOU ARE. LOVE GOD WITH A PURE ABSOLUTE UNWAVERING LOVE. BLESSINGS HONOR AND GLORY BE TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST.
