MORNINGTIME 3989by Benjamin Munsell on April 14, 2022
Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in My Statutes, neither have kept My Judgments, neither have done according to the judgments of the nations that are round about you; Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute Judgments in the midst of thee IN THE SIGHT OF THE NATIONS. Ezekiel 5:7-8. Don't misunderstand, THE LORD IS NOT ANGRY WITH HIS KIDS, HE JUST WANTS TO SEPARATE THEM FROM THE SINS THAT SO EASILY BESET THEM. Yes, the Lord hates sin and can't have it in His Presence, so through Christ, His Son, He will make you just as Holy as His Son is, BECAUSE THAT'S THE STRENGTH AND POWER OF THE BLOOD OF CHRIST. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me". Philippians 4:13. "And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST JESUS": Ephesians 2:6. No matter what you "feel like", if you belong to Christ, you're already seated with Christ in Heavenly Places (by Faith). Christ said it, so it has to be True. "And I have declared unto them Thy Name, and will Declare It: that the Love wherewith Thou hast Loved Me may be in them, and I in them". John 17:26. If you're a Believer, you're already in Christ, you just need to finish Living out your life on earth, In and Through Christ, that all may see His Keeping Power, in this sinful world. If God can keep His Word Pure, (the KJV Bible), He surely can keep you Pure. Even if all this doesn't make sense to you, Believe it, it's what Jesus Christ said years ago. HE WON'T LOSE EVEN ONE OF HIS SHEEP. Seek His Face, and your face will start to look like His Face. You won't see this transformation in you, but others around you will. Even if they persecute you, that's OK, they did the same to Christ, AND HE LOVED THEM ALL ANYWAY. Read and study His Word, listen for His Will and His Way, learn to Hear and Obey that Still Small Voice, and you will, Be Blessed.
