What Spirit are You?

And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, will you that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elijah did? Luke 9:54

With all the evil in the world, sometimes we feel like the disciples did. When people reject Jesus or even blasphemy his name, its normal to feel some anger. However, we learn from this event that Jesus doesn’t want us to be looking for judgement but to share the mercy of God through Jesus Christ.

In this particular event, the Samaritans rejected Jesus and this obviously made his disciples angry. We see a lot of evil and sin in this world that makes us angry, how do we react? Are we condemning people or praying for them?

But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, You know not what manner of spirit you are of.For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to savethem. And they went to another village.
Luke 9:55-56

The disciples wanted God to consume the Samaritans with fire, like Elijah had done with the followers of Baal. Jesus rebuked them. So what was the difference? Well Jesus has brought a new covenant from God, filled with grace and mercy paid by his blood at the cross. Consuming sinners with fire would negate the reason Christ died for us.

This same covenant is still here today; God is still granting mercy to sinners through Jesus Christ. So as Christians our job is not to condemn sinners but to lead them to Jesus. Is this easy to do? No, of course not but we must not be a roadblock to someone’s salvation.

As Jesus said to the disciples, what manner of Spirit are you? Are you lead by the Holy Spirit or are you lead by a false Spirit of Satan? You don’t need to save the world, we already have a God who has done that in Jesus name Amen

Don’t Judge

Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Matthew 7:1-2

Judgement is a hot topic that is often debated, first notice what Jesus says here that “for the same way you judge others, you will also be judged”.  Condemning people for there sins will  probably condemn you. Remember we are all sinners and all a work in progress, its our job to lead people to Christ not to become a road block

Jesus has been granted authority as Judge of the World (Matthew 25:31) its not our job or authority to judge people. Overstepping this authority shows your lack of discipline and respect for Jesus. Now I know its human nature to judge people but we need to be quick to listen and slow to speak.

Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye Matthew 7:3-5

If we’re going to be instructing people to live like Christ, we need to make sure our lifestyle reflects Christ also. Being a Christian you are held under the microscope by society because any faults or failures are quickly pointed out and your called a hypocrite.

While this may seem unfair, this is part of being a disciple of Christ, we need to hold ourselves to a higher standard. Many people are drawn by your actions and not your words. It’s important we focus on the plank in our eyes and not the sawdust in others eyes. Meaning worry about your own sins and shortcomings and not others.

Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. Matthew 7:6

Don’t confide in people who don’t truly love you or they will use your faults against you. We naturally want to open up to people and share our lives but as it says in Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else guard your heart for everything flows from it”

Remember Jesus chose 12 disciples to confide in and share his gospel with them. Judas betrayed that trust and lead to his death. Be careful who you are confiding in, and most important leave judgement up to Jesus and remove the plank from your own eye in Jesus Name Amen

Ancient of Days

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days(God) did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. Daniel 7:9

The term “Ancient of Days” was used by Daniel to describe God. Why because God is everlasting. The vison he sees is clearly God sitting on the throne as described in Revelations 1:14-15

However I suggest you clearly read Daniel 7:9 and Revelations 1:14 and notice there descriptions are identical further proving the Trinity between God the Father and Son Jesus Christ

A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:10

Another seen that is clearly describe in Revelations 5:11, as thousands of Angels surround God on his throne. And the book being opened clearly is the Book of Life (Revelations 20:15)

Daniels vision is clearly of judgement day when we will all stand before our Lord Jesus and account for our lives.

I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast (Satan) was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. Daniel 7:11

The beast is Satan, and this event is when Jesus destroys Satan and cast him into Hell. This event is also described in Revelations 19:20

As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. Daniel 7:12

The Kingdom of Satan will be destroyed and all power that Satan and his followers have right now will be gone.

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man(Jesus) came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days (God), and they brought him near before him. Daniel 7:13

The same even as clearly described in Matthew 24:30, as Jesus is The Son of Man, he is the Messiah and giving all authority by God his Father.

And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:14

Jesus is King of King and Lord of Lords (Revelations 19:16) he will rule all nations, governments will rest on his shoulders (Isaiah 9:6) He will rule with a rod of iron (Revelations 2:27) and Gods kingdom will rule forever(Hebrews 1:8) in Jesus Name Amen

Do Not Judge

Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters.  One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The one who eats everything must not treat with contempt the one who does not, and the one who does not eat everything must not judge the one who does, for God has accepted them. Romans 14:1-3

One of the main problems with religion is we forget why Jesus came to this world. We have denomination arguing with denomination over who has superior knowledge of the Bible.  Everyone has a different journey or path to God, treat everyone with acceptance and kindness.

Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. And they will stand, for the Lord is able to make them stand.  Romans 14:4

Judgement is not ours, we don’t have the authority to judge anyone. Furthermore anyone who does judge shall be subject to judgement themselves. Lead people to Christ, let him do the judging.

One person considers one day more sacred than another; another considers every day alike. Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind. Whoever regards one day as special does so to the Lord. Whoever eats meat does so to the Lord, for they give thanks to God; and whoever abstains does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. Romans 14:5-6

Jesus healed people on the Sabbath day, therefor the Jews believed he committed blasphemy. But as Jesus said the Sabbath day was made for us. We may all interpret scriptures differently, but God interprets your heart.

For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. Romans 14:7-8

When we accept Christ, we give our life to him. Everything we do should be for the Glory of God. None of our motives should be for our own selfishness or personal agendas.

For this very reason, Christ died and returned to life so that he might be the Lord of both the dead and the living. You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God’s judgment seat. Romans 14:9-10

Thanks to Jesus he has giving us the gift of eternal life and all our hope is thru him. We will all stand before him one day face to face in judgement. Don’t judge others is not your right, let Jesus be the judge.

It is written: “‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord, ‘every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.'” So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God. Romans 14:11-12

Will you bow before Jesus, The King of Kings? Will you  confess Jesus is Lord and Savior? Don’t reject Gods gift of redemption today in Jesus Name Amen

Persecution of Christians

He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:39

Satan tries to terrorize God’s Children thru fear and torment, but no matter what he throws our way, even death, we know were already victorious thru Jesus Christ at the Cross.

When Jesus said “It is Finished” Satan was defeated, he knows his time is limited and will try to destroy as many souls as possible.

(Matthew 10:28) “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Although Satan can kill our human bodies, he will never have our souls. For our souls belong to Jesus. Satan fears God, for Yahweh has the power to send evil and it’s followers to the pit of hell for all eternity.

(2 Thessalonians 1:6) “God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you

Justice will be served, every drop of blood, every tear that was shed will be paid back. No crimes will go unpunished. We need to be faithful and let God fight for us. We have the final victory!

Satan and his followers will be cast into hell for all eternity, where they will suffer for there evil they inflicted on the world and Gods Children. Justice will be served.

(Revelation 20:11) “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”

Judgment day is coming, there will be no escape for Evil. All there terrorism, weapons, fear, will not save them now. They will be forever tormented in hell for their evil acts committed on this world.

Christians will rejoice for Gods Kingdom will be reestablished and innocence and peace will forever be restored in Jesus name Amen
