    Day 10: Family Of God - Part Three

    March 15, 2019
    As we wait to cross the Jordan, we believe the power to heal will return and we will once again see the washed and the sanctified. Yes we can say this is what the bible calls an abomination but we must also have the same power the bible talks about. 1 Corinthians 6:11 “And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” Yes people will be very offended at this teaching but true love is telling the truth as to where their eternity will be if they do not repent. I realize that people will say there is no hell, God would never send someone their but scripture says otherwise. Is it really love if we don’t tell them they have been deceived. This is why waiting to enter the land is so important because in this land there will be power to heal. The love scripture talks about is power. 2 Chronicles 20:21 “After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever. 22 As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. 23 The Ammonites and Moabites (remember them from Lot) rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another.” While we have not seen this in a large scale, very small scale I might add, we will as we take the land once again. We will see healing from these abominations just as Paul talked about. Romans 10:13 “For, everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Acts 4:12 “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” As we take the land, once again many people will be able to say that is what I was but now praise God I am part of the family of God. 2 Timothy 2:19 “God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” This family of God will be amazing and the promises will unfold. Malachi 3:17 “On the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty, “they will be my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as a father has compassion and spares his son who serves him. 18 And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.” As we have talked about many times the blessings and curses of Deuteronomy 28 and Leviticus 26 still apply. Read them again if you have not recently.
    This family happens by believing God’s word, repenting from our wickedness and turning back to God. Romans 4:16 “Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.” Romans 9:8 “In other words, it is not the children by physical descent who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring.” Galatians 3:6 “So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” 7 Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. 8 Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” 9 So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith. 29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
    I realize this might have been heavy and offensive to some but we wait on the Lord to cloth us with power so that we will have the power to go into all the world. The gospel of Jesus Christ will go out to save the lost and captive, heal the sick and cast out demons and continue to destroy the work of the devil. God’s family are those who turn to Him. satan’s family are those who reject the word of the Lord. Whose testimony will you receive? Will you listen to the word of the Lord or will you reject God’s word and become friends with the world. James 4:4 “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.” For you have listened to God’s word, are thirsty and have turned away, Revelation 22:14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” 16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” 17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. 18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. 19 And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. 20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.” Jesus will return. Are you part of His family?
