Do you hear it? Put your ear to the ground. Do you hear it now? It’s Christ’s call for us to gather ourselves together. Who? Those of us who are of Christ Jesus in the wilderness. We are few. Lonely. Seeking each other. But slowly Christ is calling us together. Some of us “bump” into each other. But don’t you see the Lord is revealing us to each other. Why? To preach the unadulterated Truth of the Gospel apart from the doctrines of men. Also to minister to each other in the gifts that God has revealed to each one of us.
Are you too proud to serve with other saints? The Lord will either humble you or cast you aside. For He did not come to bring peace but a sword.
34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to ‘set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ 37 He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. 38 And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. (Mat. 10:34-39)
For this sword that Christ spoke of is His truth that separates us from the goats that each person’s intent be made known.
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. (Heb. 4:12-13)
Will you deny Christ by denying your brother or sister? Do you hold anything against him or her? God will judge us according to our obedience.
14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. (Mat. 6:14-15)
Scripture is our guide. Our faith is simple.
5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. (I John 1:5-10)
We do not need to follow men who are paid to preach their version of the truth. Christ called us all to serve in one way or another.
27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Mat. 11:27-30)
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold nor silver nor copper in your money belts, 10 nor bag for your journey, nor two tunics, nor sandals, nor staffs; for a worker is worthy of his food. (Mat. 10:8-10)
We have need of nothing but to serve Christ alone. Do you love the church or do you love Christ? Come to Him and come out of her. Her? The Great Harlot church system who mixes the world with their worship. Come to Him who has love and Salvation.
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
Let us gather in His name alone today and forsake ourselves to take up our cross for Him whom we owe our very lives!
What have you to lose?
39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.
