Obedience With Rewards In Heaven

It is very important that we maintain a clean spiritual house with the Lord every day. Ask for forgiveness daily, talk to Jesus, read the word & pray.

The Holy Spirit is calling many out into new tasks.  It’s important that we remain obedient to the will of the Lord.  The ultimate goal is more souls for the Kingdom Of Heaven.

We have all been given many warnings about the times we are in, and how important it is to get the message out to all who will listen.  That is the message of Salvation, Love, Eternal Life and so much more.  We may get frustrated at rejection, but that’s just a minuscule amount of suffering compared to what Jesus endured for all of us.

Ephesians_3_9

Romans 5:19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.

Romans 6:16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Romans 16:19 For your obedience is known to all, so that I rejoice over you, but I want you to be wise as to what is good and innocent as to what is evil.

Romans 16:26 but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith—

Sermon_on_the_mount2

Matthew 5:1-19

The Sermon on the Mount

Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down, his disciples came to him.

The Beatitudes
2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.

12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Salt and Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Christ Came to Fulfill the Law
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

  1. I want to make it clear that I do not support the beliefs of the Mormon Church. I posted the video above because it is an old Gospel song and these people have excellent voices.

  2. Amen JC – funny thing is that song probably ‘frees” them momentarily until they have to step back into their Mormon laws that bind them and have no biblical foundation. May these people know the true Jesus soon !!!! For if they labor so hard for a false god, how much more would they Love and Labor for the True One !!!! Amen !!!! I do not say this meaning anything malicious towards them but only want them into the light and truth. I know a couple of them personally and they are truly loyal and kindhearted – but so afraid to leave their churches on account of being casted out and cut off from everyone.

    1. Great points, Michael.
      This is a great point of prayer for the Mormons.
      Perhaps that is part of why the Holy Spirit had J.C. post the song by them.
      THEY NEED PRAYER, as do many more misled groups.

      Jesus died and PAID THE PRICE for them IN FULL to be with Him for eternity.
      He wants them, if humbled, repentant, and submitted to HIM, not man-made doctrine.
      We are co-laborers. We have our part to do in our Prayer-Closets!!!

    A Watchman on the Wall
    Posted: 05 Mar 2016 06:12 PM PST
    After MUCH prayer and a long night of soul searching, through bitterness and tears awatchmanonthewall will be reinstated. So MANY have prayed, called, emailed and encouraged me to stay the course. I have been blessed beyond measure by the outpouring of Christian love shown me. No rebuke, no condemnation, no accusation but love, all have helped me arrive at this decision.

    Satan may have won a battle, but he will not win the war. Our God reigns.

    We must continue to lift one another in prayer, praying for strength for the journey and light in the darkness. Again thank you one and all for your loving concern. LORD bless.

    “If we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Take it from one who knows.

    2. I am not convinced that nothing happened, so satan may not have won a battle. Remember things happen in the spiritual realm before they manifest in the natural. We all have been sensing and praying over the turmoil and heaviness in the atmosphere. No one knows for sure what actually happened in the spirit that may have prevented manifestation in the natural. Let’s not give satan a single toe hold. Our God does indeed reign and He still hears and answers our prayers.

      We are all human and Everyone makes mistakes. If that is the case here, so be it. Forgiveness is still ours. But let us not quickly discount other explanations.

      So glad to have you back Ali!

      1. The devil cannot do anything against a believer without the express permission of the Lord!
        Remember Job and that it says the Lord puts protective hedges around believers.
        Its only if we are willfully disobedient to the Lord that he allows us to be tormented like in the book of acts and that is only for disciplinary reasons to get us to return to him with all our might.

        He loves us and he never gives us anything above our strenght to manage, which speaks volumes of the strenght of the Montana area we know and love.

  4. Hello people

    I wish to open up something in the way of a Very open discussion, no intention of insulins anyone. Since i know there are some here WHO find their church congregations and meetings Very rewarding spiritually.

    The thing is i have been contemplating for some time now to Go solo from the church im a member in.
    I have tried to open up avenues for discussion within prophecy and general biblical interpretations that varies fro generally accepted theology like the Nephilim and generally things considered “super spiritual”.

    I dont know IF the Faust is mine or IF the people dont want to think about such matters because i have been Oftenly labeled a fearmonger.

    The people there are all hearts and have deep faith but what disturbs me is either their unwillingness to take a deeper look or the general sing kumbaya view everything is ok attitude!

    Im in something of a key position there being an elder but the others WHO are elders just keep this business as usual approach and IF i Go too. Heavy on that approach im ignored or talked down as the youngster.

    I know the passage in hebrews. WHO admonish to gather together but to be clear this blog and Lindas have given me more in a few months than church in 12 years. So what to do stay in or Go out i feel like the pebble in the machinery at My church and have so for years.

    1. Stig-Ove, I truly like your boldness for the Lord and not willing to compromise in that area. Like many have been saying, it’s no longer ok to just “agree to disagree”, since time is too short. May the Lord continue to guide you in this area in dealing with your church. Maybe someone else on this blog will have experience in this area and will be led to help you. I for one do not attend a physical church. I know there are some church leaders that truly preach the full Gospel, but they are few and far between.

      Blessings Bro.

      1. Another note: Even those that preach the full Gospel, may not be allowing the Holy Spirit to move freely among its members. Some are still under false thinking that we can’t have the gifts from the Bible like: Dreams, Visions, Prophecy, etc. Most believe what they read in the Bible, but they don’t truly want to know it applies to us today.

        Liked by 1 person

      2. Stig-ove,
        I agree with James above 100%.

        I would think that the passage admonishing us to gather together, especially as The Day approaches would imply that the church IS operating fully under the direction of the Holy Spirit and the 5-Fold Ministry; that people are encouraged to be Bereans and to be in THE WORD daily for themselves; that people are being led in the Issachar anointing (knowing the signs of the times); understanding a deep study of the Book of Revelation and all the related Scripture throughout all the Bible that supports and amplifies that which is written in Revelation; that people are being trained in sanctification and holiness, and their gifts are being identified and encouraged, and then being SENT OUT to make more DISCIPLES. Churches shouldn’t be holding onto people in the pews, but rather making a goal to SEND THEM OUT! (“GO YE!”)

        Therefore, if a church is not operating like this, I believe that one has a right to leave it, if prompted to do so.* It is not a true Fellowship. (Yes, and I know these are VERY few and far between.) I believe that if you pray and ask Holy Spirit guidance about your decision, you will receive it. Also, if you obediently follow the Holy Spirit on this, I believe that you will somehow be blessed in an incredibly greater measure, although this may not be apparent instantly. This is not a word from the Lord, but a general idea. Perhaps God would pour down an anointing on you so that you would be able to have a living and active ministry yourself, that could draw many to Christ. Perhaps you are being tested to see if you will remain “stuck” or willing to get out of the boat and launch out into the DEEP— with and for HIM.

        NOTE: Listen to the song “Oceans” by Hillsong for inspiration!!

        Prayers are with you!!

        * I also understand that awake people have been assigned to various churches for specific purposes. So I am not judging anyone.

      1. …..just thought of this……I think the time of separation is here.
        I think it’s time to really take to the Holy Spirit to reveal to us if we’re
        “going to get along.” We’re in the Church Age of Laodicea, the age of the Luke-warm. Jesus wants us HOT or COLD. I believe that means that the HOT are already fully converted. The COLD are not, but there is more hope for them to see their spiritually impoverished state and REPENT than a LUKE-WARM person that already thinks they are just FINE!

        Did you know that in the time when Revelation was written, Laodicea (meaning “the people rule”) piped two streams of water into it.
        From one side, they piped in HOT SPRINGS. From another area, they piped in COLD SPRINGS. BUT, by the time each of them reached Laodicea, they were neither hot or cold, but LUKEWARM!!

  6. My sibs in Christ, here’s a great poem by Randy Conway, posted on Steve Quayle’s site yesterday:

    THE RIDERS OF THE APOCALYPSE
    There was a time, when in the quiet of the night;

    A distant sound of horses I thought that I could hear
    Riders on the clouds continually drawing near.
    No longer reserved for the quiet is the sound ringing in my ear
    I feel the vibration of their hooves because the riders they are here.

    One of the riders has set his course,
    He has pulled the reigns, and has turned his horse.
    The prints of hooves mark the sky and the land
    He rides with a bow held tight in his hand.

    Those in the path of this white horse will fall
    to their demise for ignoring God’s call.
    He is bent upon man’s defeat
    And nations soon will lie at his feet.

    No longer do I only hear, but now I see
    A red horse, with a rider mounted on this steed.
    The sword he wields strikes the minds of men
    And a hate filled delusion has consumed every one of them.

    A ubiquitous blackness fills the sky for a rider on a black horse has arrived.
    He weighs the gold with scales which he holds high.
    Now money has no value soon even bread it will not buy.
    In a shelter beneath a bridge I can hear the hungry cry.

    A fourth horseman rides and the whole earth turns pale,
    Death comes with many faces; a pandemic races while medicine fails
    The excruciating pains of hunger haunt the bellies of the children
    The crows take flight to eat the dead; they feast in flocks of millions

    The Pale horseman is riding hard and death and hell are on his heels
    When he arrives there is no escape and the entire earth will feel
    The fury of demons, evil reptilians and the death that Hades seeks
    A fourth of mankind will fall as he rides; both the strong and the weak.

    He rides not alone but he has unleashed
    The bear the lion and other beasts.
    Man for refuge will diligently seek,
    But man is now the wild one’s feast.

    The whole earth soon will violently quake.
    The sun will turn black; the face of wraith.
    Blood fills the moon that hangs in the night.
    Stars fall from the heavens unable to sustain their flight.

    But soon the heavens will rip open for all to see
    yet another rider mounted on His steed.
    On a white horse he comes to judge and to make war
    A sword like lighting from his mouth will swiftly soar.

    All the armies of heaven will ride with Him
    Striking down the nations who covenant with sin.
    He will rule them with an iron scepter
    And the evil ruler He has intercepted.

    When the horsemen have completed their ride
    A wondrous thing is prophesied
    The Kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdoms of our Lord
    They will be the Kingdoms of His Christ, and all heaven worships God in one accord.

    Jesus Christ will tread out the winepress of the wrath of God
    God will be shown to the world even as He is shown through Gog.
    And on that day all of man, and all of Satan’s hordes
    Will bow their knees before the King of Kings and Lord of Lord’s.

    On that day it will be too late to make your choice
    Today is the day of salvation, listen now to the Watchman’s voice.
    There will be no surviving the days ahead by any natural means
    Your future is dependent upon your repentance and the grace of the coming King.

    1. Christine,
      Thanks for sharing the poem above. As I read the first stanza, these
      words struck me:
      “No longer reserved for the quiet is the sound ringing in my ear”

      Indeed I continue to hear the sound of ringing in both of my ears!
      (And I truly believe that there’s a spiritual component to that!)

      It’s a wonderful and thoughtful poem, outlining the times we’re in.
      There’s darkness, but a glorious light at the end (for genuine truly converted Believers).

      As God stated in creation “and EVENING and MORNING became the first day” (paraphrase). At any rate evening is always mentioned first in creation.
      Could that mean that be a sign and symbol of our progression from evening (darkness) to morning (LIGHT)?

    1. Kathleen,
      I agree with you! Abortion is murder and an abomination in God’s sight.
      The sanctioning of this evil in the U.S. since January 22, 1973 and its continued operation is a big part of the Judgment that will be coming on this Nation.

      Yes, I call Psalm 139 the “Pro-Life Psalm.”
      I also remember the Psalm that states “It is HE that has made us and not we ourselves.”

      As I have read the Bible through cover to cover, I was astounded at ALL the references to the abomination of shedding innocent blood, the value of life, and on and on. UNBELIEVABLE. And to think that so many would choose
      Political Correctness rather than Passion for Christ in this very important area!

      We should remember that anyone involved in abortion in any way can definitely be FORGIVEN if they are truly sorry and turn 100% to Jesus.
      So, I am judging the SIN by the plumb-line of Scripture. I am not judging the sinners. (which inevitably includes all of us).That is God’s job. However, as long as this door of Grace and Mercy is open, I would say…..hurry, hurry to repentance and forgiveness before the door shuts and Judgment begins!

        Debs frequency piece comes to mind that marriages where Jesus is the centerpiece and Gods word will be blessed with life abundant like his word promises.

        The Holy Spirit will make the couples become one in his word and not in inharmony bevause the Lord makes them one in spirit and in flesh.

        Simply the Word harmonizes to produce blessed offspring. Abortion is a crime against Gods plan for each and everyone.

        And we know who wants to perform crimes against God’s plan (Satan).
        There are many that are satanists by night and abortionists by day.
        They are interested in “child sacrifice.”

        Again, this is not to condemn anyone involved. I am not to judge.
        There is ONE True Judge.

        This is an admonition to Run, run, run to repentance and forgiveness in Jesus Christ, turning fully to HIM before the judgments start to fall.

        ************************************************************
        Also, homosexual (so-called)”marriage” is a crime against God’s original plan which HE established in the Garden of Eden at the beginning.

        This is another important area that cries out for our repentance and turning 100% to Jesus Christ and HIS HOLY WORD.

    A Watchman on the Wall

    “You do not see, your eyes have grown dim, the brilliance of the worlds lights have taken away the True Light from your eyes and now it has become difficult to distinguish the difference. With doubt and fear My children grope around in darkness. Seldom seeing the goodness of their God, blinded by the cares of the world. When trials come many will be unable to stand. Weak knees and shallow faith will not carry them through the fiery trials coming upon this earth.

    Soon, very soon I will place great obstacles before My people. Soon there will be peril upon peril coming to My people. The times of sifting have arrived. What you see now will pale in comparison to what is coming. Millions are not ready. Millions live in false hope and religious dogma, but not in the strength of My Word or the resurrection power of My Son.

    Your sins as a nation have been heard in the heavenlies, the cries of the righteous have entered My Throne Room and now it is time to judge the nation (I feel this nation is America) for their disobedience and rebellion. My judgement will bring an awakening to many.

    Your election will be a sham, evil has taken hold and the charade has begun. The actors are in position and deception will soon flood your nation. What you have sought as a nation you will receive. Your wicked behavior will be played out through your politicians and government officials in open rebellion, outburst of wickedness and evil.

    Watch closely the days ahead. Watch those who rise to the top. Much deception is at play behind the scenes. The dye is cast, the table is set and soon the game will begin; and your nation (America) is the prize awarded to the winner.”

    After receiving this word I said “LORD, this is a horrible word.” In my spirit came these words; “Horrible days approaching. Be on your guard. Stand in faith, purity and hope.”

    “Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” Romans 8:35

    “And my God will supply all your needs,according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

    “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed..” 2 Corinthians 9:8

    “…and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3

      Well, we should look into the Holy Word and see what happened to ancient Israel as they turned away from the one LIVING GOD and continued to ignore the warnings to return!

      CLING TO THE KING ONLY!!

  11. These lines stand out to me from Ali’s word posted above by JC:
    ‘Millions are not ready. Millions live in false hope and religious dogma, but not in the strength of My Word or the resurrection power of My Son.”

    False hope= Normalcy Bias/ Cognitive Dissonance.
    Specifically, part of that could be the false hope of religious dogma making folks “right with God” and the false hope of a new candidate in office in January 2017 being able to “turn things around” in this nation.

    False hope=SINKING SAND.

    1. JC,
      That’s very thoughtful!
      When I taught music in the public schools, I saw 600 students per week, and among them were deaf-ed students mainstreamed into about 6 of the 30 weekly classes. In those classes, and “Interpreter” would come with them to my music class and would “sign” every word I said to each of those 40 minute classes, including all of the words of the songs we sang. The deaf-ed students were indeed very special to me!

  12. Stig, I no longer attend a church. It’s been a long time now. It’s not that I don’t enjoy going to some. I really miss my home church in TX. I’ve just not found the one who allows Holy Spirit to have complete control with the Truth being taught. Just think, we are soon not going to be concerned with any of this and will be with Jesus!

      You can pursue the Holy Spirit on your own through Praise, Worship,
      time spent in the Holy Scriptures daily, and listening to God.
      You might be really surprised what God will lead you to as you continue to do these things. There can be really awesome Divine Appointments with people to help you grow in your walk!

    2. Hello Sonshine! Welcome aboard. I’ve been so busy lately that my posts are few and far between, but wanted to respond to this. Absolutely the King can “call us out of her, my people” if a church is preaching another gospel and not Spirit-filled. I left the Catholic Church in 2006 (saved in 1976–I know, I’m a slow study) and the Evangelical Lutheran in 2009. Between 2009 and 2015 the only church I attended was a Calvary Chapel 2 hours (each way) north of us. Needless to say, we weren’t exactly part of that fellowship. We just enjoyed the sermons (scripture-based) and the worship (Spirit filled). The Lord planted us in a local Baptist church in January 2015 and we are loving it. I have fellowship for the first time since 2009, so don’t give up on that. He may have a place for you. But in those 6 years, He taught me to pray. It wasn’t wasted, cause I lead the prayer at this church! Starting the War Room Bible Study on prayer the first of April. Never thought He’d use me this way, but here it is! As long as you’re listening for The Voice, you can’t go wrong.

      Be blessed, Sonshine! I have been enjoying your posts!

I believe, for what it’s worth……..that in that shaking, most those who have mocked, ridiculed and scorned us for sharing the Truth will be shaken right off that fence to the knees.

      2. Indeed they will, Sonshine, and the only good thing about that is that while they’re on their knees, some may come to Christ. I started seeing this Great Divide in our country way back in the Clinton years–that professing Christians only fell on the left side of the line and born-again believers on the right side (liberal vs conservative). Now the born-agains are abandoning politics altogether as a magic show of smoke and mirrors. No one to vote for anymore. I wonder if I ever will again. . .

I believe it was knocked over by one of the many “chunky” feral cats in our neighborhood. Although I did not see it happen, I just pictured a fat cat jumping on top of it and it tipped over 🙂

    Many have been given prophetic warnings that “Obumbum” is our last president and some event will trigger him to declare Martial Law and that will suspend the elections. Who knows when that will happen, it could even happen during the “General Election” process.

How mighty she fights for you Lord – how the scriptures and longsuffering wisdom flow out of her with no effort, a great sign of her love for you. Her weariness is hidden in and for your glory Lord, she refuses to cry out in defeat. Though she may be tired and in pain can you deliver from all of us Lord our pure and heavenly hands that wish to rest on her pain and bring her relief for the moment so that she is reminded of how it will be in your Kingdom? Can you tell her Lord that she is loved by us in completeness as you have made her? Can you tell her Lord that joy and laughter are what she brings to us every day? Can she stay with us Lord? As you heal her one more time we will share in her joy as she leads others here. Lord we just thank You for her but we know it was YOU that knit her in the womb. And because of what you brought us in your perfect wisdom, we plead to keep it here another season because of what a wonderful gift it really is from you. Amen

      Of course God has a sense of humor, He gave you me for a prayer buddy lol. We know that was God ordained since we started communicating and I had no idea who you were or how you even got my e-mail. I love how the Father works!

    Kenzel, my grandpa accepted Jesus a week before he went home. He sent someone over to lead him to Jesus and wow did he repent! With my grandma He gave me the honor of leading her at 97 years old to know Him. I was caring for her and cutting her hair. Right in the middle of it, Holy Spirit said it’s time. I had waited for this day over 25 years many ups and downs of fearing that chance could be lost……. He is faithful and hears our prayers and heartcry…..We cried together and the anointing was so strong. When I told her the angels were rejoicing she was stunned, and asked “They are?” Then cried more. How can you sit in church over 65 years and not hear……….
    Abba can send someone you least expect to your grandpa. He is so unique He knows just who these elderly respect and will heed His voice.

    Agreeing with all on here for his repentance and salvation now.
