OBEDIENCE & HUMILITY                “WORTH CONSIDERING      12/8/22

As I was praying about what subject the Holy Spirit wanted to write on last night I also received this from George this morning on the same subject.  So if you have time, take a look.   Each Day now George sends this overview of world news out, which for me, is most helpful.  (See below.)

So lets talk about that difficult word    :OBEDIENCE    Not a word we like to consider as a thought from the past or present.  Our Adamic nature would rather rule in hell than serve in heaven.  But obedience to God is for our protection and support and a must for gaining eternal life.   The Bible teaches us to make Jesus LORD, not just Savior.

Our Creator God in HIS great love for us is bent on trying to help us become OBEDIENT in HIS love for us and desires to make us in HIS image and likeness, if we are up for it.  But mark it down, HE is not going to allow HIS universe to be contaminated by the pride and rebellion now found on earth that has made it into what it is.  God gave the world to Adam in the beginning and Adam gave it to lucifer. Roman 6:16,    And, “Do you not know that when you continually offer yourselves to someone to do his will, you are the slaves of the one whom you obey, either [slaves] of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness (right standing with God)?”

So as an overview of the Word of God.  In the Bible we find that children are to be obedient to their parents.  That the wife is to learn to submit to her husband and to be an example for him as to how He is to be submitted to the Elders God has placed in HIS Church.  And the Elders are to learn to be obedient to each other as the Holy Spirit speaks through them so that the Holy Spirit can build the Church of Christ Jesus and not denominations.   And the Holy Spirit is submitted to Christ Jesus as the Word of God, And Christ Jesus is totally submitted to God The Father Almighty.

And if you don’t learn right away that Obedience is set in place for our protection and learn to be in a place of Holy Spirit submission then you will learn by painful experiences along the way in pride and rebellion.  So let us take a walk through the Holy Scriptures on the Subject of OBEDIENCE if you have the humility for it, because God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

My mailing list is about 236 souls now, and I enjoy the time I have with the Holy Spirit in writing to you.  But I would guess, no more than about 10 of you will take a serious look at authority with a few of  the obedience scriptures that the Holy Spirit has set up for the Body of Christ, 1 Cor. 12 .  Or to catch a vision of and be willing to come under Holy Spirit obedience to do what HE has been trying to instruct you to do as a Christian as to lifting up Jesus as LORD.   I had a minister write me from Africa yesterday wanting to join my church????   I really don’t have a church nor a church membership.  It is my vision for Christians to be members of the Church of Jesus in Love, Honor and Obedience.  Then  unity is a joy and together in the Holy Spirit we just might get something done that lifts up Jesus as LORD to draw souls to HIM.   In the New Testament in most places it would mention that the Church of Christ Jesus was meeting at someone’s home.   The home or the building or the organization never became the Church.  The Church of Christ Jesus is universal.  Also ministers rarely teach concerning the obedience factor.  So really we are rather illiterate concerning obedience and discipline that the Holy Spirit is trying to bring us into.   Even so called good Christians are often totally ignorant of the commandments of Christ Jesus and lean into “Greasy Grace” that GOD is permissive and forgives easily.  He does, if it is a heartfelt repentance.  But if it is just a head trip we will find ourselves repenting for the same issues over and over again and wonder why God does not help us.  As lust when it conceives brings us into sin and sin when finished  separates us  from God.  If you are walking in Pride and Rebellion in some area of your life, hearing the Holy Spirit is going to be difficult.   And you will go no further in your spiritual growth until the issue is finally dealt with in repentance, restitution and heart felt sorrow for the sin with a willing heart to not do again.  Then God will step in and fix your shield of faith so that it will stop all of the fiery darts of the enemy.  But our Adamic nature tends to do the same stuff over and over and over expecting a different result and it is insane as GOD never changes HIS mind and never has to as HE has perfect foreknowledge and perfect timing.  Either we learn to do it HIS way or we waste our lives on eating junk food.  1 Cor. 3:12-15.

I might get one or two notes back each time I publish one of these teachings so I really wonder if they are needed at all?   Being 90 now does slow me down a bit.  So if you don’t want this e-mail please let me know.  But I hope to help you come into a deeper walk in the Holy Spirit in the Truth of God.   And if you study through John 17:20-26 you will see the vision of our Lord for you and HIS support and love for you.  He has done all HE could do to keep you from getting lost.  But you need to get GOD’S TRUTH from HIS WORD, not from all of the divisions that call themselves churches.  Many tend to teach what folks would like to hear in order to keep the church bills paid as noted by our Lord in Rev. 3:14-22 ( This is the Prophetic judgement of the last church, the 7th church before the Rapture)  and 2 Tim. 3:5 relates to this last church as well.  Of course, as I was teaching some of my Great Grand Daughters today, If what Jesus says to do and any earthly authority says otherwise,   you need to go with what Jesus says,  every time.   1 Sam. 15:22-23
