The Real Believer in these times – Possessing your soul
May we reflect on these questions: Who is a believer? Believing what? How does a believer relate with his immediate environment?
Acts 4:32 “The multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own”
This picture of the early Christian church shows, in a nutshell, the source of their power to impact the world around them. First, they are described as believers. Only those who have a common faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can enjoy the unity of spirit and purpose that is described here.Second, because of their common faith in Jesus Christ, they were of one heart and soul; they were singular and focused in their objective. They knew the reason for their existence as a church was not to entertain, or even to do good in the community. Their single intention was to exalt the name of Jesus Christ.

Finally, their unanimous endeavor to glorify Christ resulted in practical implications for their daily lives. Although they had personal possessions, they did not see these things as their own. Likewise, we show that we have finally comprehended the nature of our role as stewards when we can truly say that nothing we have is our own. It is not my car, my house, my money, or my time. It is God’s car, house, money, and time that he has loaned to me… and he expects a return on his investment (Matthew 25:14-27).

Will you, for a moment, contra-distinct the picture of the believer described so far as from the book of Acts with those spoken of in 2nd epistle to Timothy by apostle Paul:

2 Timothy 3: 1-9.

“…perilous times shall come… for men shall be lovers of own selves…”

The “Perilous Times” predicted by the holy apostles is here.

This time period is characterised by the “Me! 

‘Me’ first…’Me’ last (and later others) Philosophy”.

This is the Luciferian Deceptive Message to the world of men – carnal christians, shamefully, inclusive. This is pointedly Satan’s colourful kite hoisted lofty to capture the unsaved and unregenerated men who are otherwise made in God’s image. Now preachers in churches are inadvertently propagating same from the pulpits to the new generation.

It’s all about thinking about ‘You’! 

‘You’ are the centre of the world and every matter!

Doesn’t that sound good?

Except that you didn’t notice that you are being nudged to live in the thought that 

“You are the first, you are the last… it’s really about YOU being the alpha & omega!”

If you are the the “alpha & omega” of your world, where is your creator? I guess you didn’t reason up to that point before you swallowed Oprah Winfrey’s twisted doctrine.

What Lucifer has been doing through his agents in the talkshow industry, soulish motivators, oratory political speakers, certain class of “rights” agitators, etc is to push the human race to mimic his actions that was reported in the book of Isaiah 14: 12-14 

“… for thou has said in thine heart, I will…I will… I will… I will… I will be like the most High”.

THE NEW MIND SET:

The generality of the human race has been progressively goaded to be on this precipice – The New Age Philosophy.

Men have been made to think that it is both cute and a sign of “self confidence” to believe that “it’s all about Me” !

Yeah, yes “I” can!

What “I” think… what “I” choose to like… what “I” decide that is right for “Me”… what “I” decide is not right for “Me”… 

“I” make all the laws… 

“I” decide what is morally acceptable or not… 

It is “I” and “I” that must be satisfied…

Nothing is no longer absolutely evil and nothing is good except what “I” classify them to be…”

Of course, recall the account of Genesis –

And the serpent said unto the woman, “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil”. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

The new way of thinking has changed the table. It isn’t God that knows and determines the difference between good and evil for man any longer. Oh no!

Men have forcefully taken that right from God. Each man can now, on his/her own decide on what is right and what things are wrong!

In other words man has taken the title and function of “I am that I am”!

Since “I” like “Me”, then to hell with any differing opinion of anybody – parents, church leaders, community leaders, guardians and mentors  (do they even exist again?), the moral society and even God motivated inner consciences!

The New Age Campaign:

Please take time to examine deeply the underlying philosophies of 

 Same-sex Rights Movements, 

 Pro-Abortionists, 

 Terrorist Groups, 

 Pervert Religious Leaders, 

 Corrupt & Selfish Politicians, Judges and Law Enforcement Agents, 

 Internet Fraudsters, Electronic Hackers, 

 Drug & Human Traffickers, 

 The Movie Industry and Entertainment Practitioners,

 Pedophiles,

 Armed Robbers, 

 Assassins, 

 Money launderers, 

 serial sex offenders,

 Arms traffickers,

 Youth Cult Groups and Gangs, etc.

It’s all about gradually replacing God with the man!

It is all about projecting IDOLS! Making images and idols that will provoke God’s wrath and judgement.

Are you sliding away while still shouting hallelujah!

Are you slipping away while still deceptively seeing yourself as a victor? Are you gradually ingesting some unwholesome words that is turning you into a victim of APOSTACY?

2Thess 2: 1 – 8

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the MYSTERY OF INIQUITY doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

These are the things to watch out for… what to pray against. .. what to resist from infliterating our minds and souls… pray for the youths!

In your patience, possess ye your souls!

Which is of higher importance to you? Between
# What God is doing for you? So that you may brag about it?
OR
# What God is doing in the inside of you? So that you can make the World better by revealing Christ in you to them through your conduct?
FOR A FRUITFUL BELIEVER THAT FOCUSES ON GIVING GOD PLEASURE THROUGH HIS LIFE, IT NOW MORE ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE INSIDE YOU WHICH IS AFFECTING YOUR THOUGHTS AND CONDUCT THAN WHAT GOD IS DOING FOR YOU!
PLEASE RETRACE YOUR STEPS.
Are you striving in your church, with fellow believers in Christ, to exalt the name of Jesus together? Are you together laying all that you have and all that you are on HIS altar, to be used in his kingdom as HE sees fit? This was the source of the New Testament church’s power.
Shalom.
