Deceive Oneself

 

To DECEIVE ONESELF is to pretend in one’s mind that what we say is the truth; however, Yahweh sets the standard.

Yahweh says the book of the ordinances (laws) are nailed to the cross–Paul explains below.

Galatians 5

1     ¶ Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free,​

and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. ​

2    Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ***ye be circumcised**,​

**********************************************************​

Christ shall profit you nothing. ​

3    For I testify again to every man ***that is circumcised,**​

**********************************************************​

that he is a debtor (to do*** the whole law.***)​

//Paul is talking about ***the law contained in ordinances*** ​

Galatians 3​

1     ¶ O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?​

10     For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are​

written ***in the book*** of the law to do them. ​

19     ¶ Wherefore then serveth the law? It ***was added*** because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.​

 

IT WAS ADDED TO BUT SEPARATE FROM THE TEN COMMANDMENTS KEPT ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE ARK.​

IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE PERMANENT.​

Hebrews 9

1     ¶ Then verily the first covenant ***had (also) ordinances*** of divine service, and*** a worldly sanctuary.*** ​

10     Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them ​

***until the time of reformation.*** ​

13     For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, ​

sanctifieth **to the purifying of the flesh***: ​

Yeshua (Jesus) speaks the commandments sent by our Father.

The Engrafted Word That is Able to Save Your Soul.

John 12

48     He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. ​

49     For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. ​

50     And I know that ***his commandment ***is life everlasting:​

*****************************************************************​

whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. ​

John 14

15     ¶ If ye love me, keep my commandments.

 

The tempter Satan came to Yeshua.  Satan said, If thou be the Son of God…

Matthew 4​

3     And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. ​

4     But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by ***every word*** that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. ​

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets… ​

Matthew 5

17     ¶ Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. ​

18     For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.​

Matthew 19:16     ¶ And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? ​

17     And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.  ​

Easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail

Luke 16​

17     And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. ​

18     Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery. ​

 

Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God that’s everything! That’s the duty of humans.​

Paul wrote the book of Corinthians.    He (Paul) was the same person that wrote Galatians chapter 3.​

1 Corinthians 7:19

19     Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.​

Acts 18

4     And he/PAUL reasoned in the synagogue ***every sabbath,*** and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. ​

The Holy Commandment Leads Us in Right Living: The Way of Righteousness.

2 Peter 2:21     For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from ***the holy commandment*** delivered unto them. ​

22     But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. ​

1 John 2

¶ And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. ​

4     He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. ​

5     But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. ​

James 1

21     Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

The Engrafted Word That is Able to Save Your Souls.

22     But be ***ye doers of the word,*** and not hearers only, deceiving*** your own selves.***​

******************************* ​

2 Corinthians 5

10     For we must ***all*** appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done,*** whether it be good or bad.**​

******************************************************* ​

Revelation 22

14     Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

 

So those that walk in the narrow way of truth, they will do his commandments.  They will have a right to the tree of life.  They will joyfully enter in through the gates into the heavenly city to see Yahweh face to face.

 

 

After The Burial What is Next? Everlasting Punishment In Hell Or Life Eternal With Yahweh In The Kingdom–Part 1

“He (Yahweh) hath made every thing beautiful in his time…” (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

Choose you this day whom you will serve: the Creator who makes all things beautiful or the Deceiver (Satan) who destroys all beauty due to envy of Yahweh.

Although you cannot see Satan, he does influence your life in the spiritual realm to keep you bound in a sinful lifestyle.  Sin disconnects us from a relationship with Yahweh our Creator who loves us.  Satan once spoke to me so I see and understand better how he operates due to my own personal walk with Yahweh.

The choice to sin or not to sin is yours to make.  You get to choose to continue to sin in defiance of Yahweh’s Royal Laws or to obey the voice and standards set by Yahweh of what love entails.   Satan wants you to believe you cannot stop sinning so you do not try.  As a result you continue to serve sin and by default continue to serve Satan.

When you realize that you must stop sinning by any means necessary, this becomes a game changer!  You will recognize that you must turn to Yahweh to help you overcome sin in your life!  You cannot break the chains of sin on your own!  Then the changes begin when you authorize Yahweh to break the chains of sin and the bonds to Satan so you can serve your Creator as He designed you in the Garden of Eden in His Kingdom so long ago.  You will begin to learn to overcome and conquer sin in your life day by day as the Holy Spirit teaches you and leads you into truths that the world cannot comprehend because the world does not know Yahweh. You will know Him, and He will know you.  The Holy Spirit will guide you, and you will no longer fall prey to Yahweh’s enemies.  You will know the truth and the truth will indeed set you free!

At the very start of your walk with Yahweh when you decide to reject sin and live, Satan will show up in the spiritual realm. He will try to deceive you and get you off course with Yahweh, but you will stay firm rejecting Satan with the power of the Holy Spirit of Yahweh now empowering and leading your life–this is a game changer!

Now your spiritual walk with Yahweh truly begins and your journey back to the Kingdom starts along with others that join you in your walk with Yahweh.

You will treasure Yahweh’s words in your heart so you do not sin against Him.

Ponder the words spoken by King David in Psalm 119:11 below:

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. (Psalm 119:11)

Also, you ought to meditate on the wise words of Isaiah the prophet in Isaiah 51:7 below:

Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their reviling. (Isaiah 51:7)

Righteous means a person or conduct morally right or justifiable.  When you walk in a righteous manner before those that are not righteous, they will revile you: criticize in an abusive or angrily insulting manner.  Isaiah said not to fear their reproach: address (someone) in such a way as to express disapproval or disappointment or rebuke.  When you walk in a righteous manner, those who lack righteousness will attack you.  They will recognize your righteous nature, and they will perceive their unrighteous nature.  Envy will lead to them reproaching and reviling your character because sin rest in their bosom.

When you think about seeking Yahweh first (seeking the kingdom first) and Yahweh’s righteousness (obedience to the Ten Commandments spoken down the mountain by Yahweh), Satan will recognize you’re no longer under his jurisdiction and will seek to get your attention to steer you off course.  In steering you off course, this will prevent you from helping others to walking in unison and in alignment with the Commandments of Love established at creation by Yahweh the Creator of all things beautiful.

Satan will show up to try to stop you and get you to change course by attempting to deceive you.  You, however, with the power of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit teaching you all things true will detect the truth from falsehood.  This truth will set you free!  This truth sets you free from the lies of the enemy of Yahweh: Satan.  Sin is abominable to Yahweh because sin is not established in love.  Love and sin cannot theoretically coexist together. Sin in the eyes of Yahweh represent an immoral act or an act of evil/wickedness.

Love, however, abhors evil, cleave to that which is good, is not overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good–see parts of Romans 12:9-21 from the Amplified Bible below:  

Love is sincere and active (the real thing–without guile and hypocrisy). Love hates what is evil (detest all ungodliness, does not tolerate wickedness).  Love clings to what is good.  Love is never lagging behind in diligence.  Love is aglow in the Spirit, enthusiastically serving Yahweh.  Love is constantly rejoicing in hope (because of our confidence in Yeshua), steadfast and patient in distress, devoted in prayer (continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength).  Love contributes to the needs of Yahweh’s people, pursuing (the practice of) hospitality.  Love lives at peace with everyone.  Love overcomes evil with good. 

Love and sin oppose each other as faith actively resist fear–similarly like darkness be in opposition to light.

Yahweh’s standards are high standards.  A perfect kingdom requires a clear understanding of what must take place to maintain an everlasting kingdom of peace, joy, love, righteousness and perfection throughout.   A perfect kingdom fit for Yahweh has Royal Laws.  Yahweh created the laws based upon love throughout His kingdom to maintain a loving environment filled with all things beautiful for all His creatures, which manifest His love.

Yahweh creates all things beautiful.  

Study His words and get to know what your Creator commands you to do to get back under His protection and out of bondage to sin and Satan.  Choose wisely for your eternal life depends on your understanding of Yahweh’s words and promises to you.  You must study the Creator’s words to you with a sober heart and mind–stay humble so you can open yourself up to understanding true wisdom that comes from seeking Yahweh with all your heart, mind and soul–eternal life is your reward only if you choose wisely!  

Don’t follow the masses, wide is the road that leads to destruction and many will follow blindly to their own demise.  Narrow is the road that leads to eternal life and few will discover this path.  You must become a leader and not a follower.  This requires you to acquire knowledge and wisdom that comes only from Yahweh!

You must choose wisely with full understanding so you do not suffer physically here on earth as well as spiritually via separation from Yahweh for all eternity.

 

Thank You Heavenly Father!

Good and bad will pull at you, but when God wants you to do something HE will get your attention!

One night a few days back my sister and I spoke on the phone as we usually do when I remembered a very significant time in my life – 2005. The week of June 18th, 2005 to be exact. God gave a message to a complete stranger to confirm what He had already put on my heart to do!

A few years before, my sister joined a church that I periodically attended. After a couple of years, she decided to get baptized in the summer of 2003. After witnessing how God worked in her life, several family members decided to get baptized: Our Dad, brother, myself, as well as I decided to dedicate my son to God. We started our six week Bible study to prepare for baptism at the end of April or early May. Our pastor wanted to ensure we understood fundamental things in the Bible and that life wouldn’t magically get easier. God will allow us to be tested.

We finished our six week Bible study and looked forward to my son’s dedication to God on June 18th, 2005.  Then my dad, brother, and I would be baptized the following Sabbath. A week before my son’s dedication, my husband said lets find our own church. We can go to a few churches, see which one feels right for us, and then get our son dedicated. I was completely shocked! This was coming from my husband who believes in God but doesn’t practice his religion. He never attended church as an adult.  He always declined my offer to go with me because I worship on Saturday. I told him “NO, I’m not going to cancel our son’s dedication! I feel like this is what God wants me to do.”  Everyday that week before the dedication my husband asked me “Are you sure? We can find another church if you just wait.” He even called me at work saying he felt like I was “just doing what I wanted to do and didn’t care what he wanted for our son.”

At this point I felt torn between obeying God’s words to me and my husband’s words to me. I wanted my husband to feel what I felt: that the dedication of our six year old son to God would become the best thing we as parents can do for our child. When I left work that day, I felt overwhelmed and drained.  I found myself fighting a battle, but I felt unequipped to fight!

On my way home my best friend Crystal called and asked me if I could take her by her church and drop her home. When we arrived at her church, Crystal’s aunt was in the parking lot with a friend of hers. We said hi and spoke for a moment before we went inside to printout some papers. On our way out, the lady with Crystal’s aunt stopped me.  She said she felt afraid to tell me when I first arrived, but she knew she couldn’t let me leave without speaking what God put on her heart to say.  she said, “Whatever you are planning to do, do it.” She didn’t know what but whatever it was God wanted me to follow through. “Don’t let anyone change your decision.” I stood there absolutely shocked! She went on to say “don’t worry about fitting in or if people who may not even know you don’t like you. Their evil spirit makes it impossible for them to like you.”

My flesh felt confused like how would this person know such a thing. Then instantly I felt overcome with love and amazement! God would use a complete stranger to get my attention. He instantly confirmed what He already put on my heart to help me from wavering from the path He designed for my son. I couldn’t help but to cry with joy. The lady gave me such a comforting hug. When I told her what I was struggling with, she was in awe! Our faith grew even stronger that day!

When I got home I spoke with my husband and told him what happened. I couldn’t perceive for sure if he completely believed me, but he didn’t question our son’s dedication anymore. That Saturday, June 18th, 2005 we woke up and went to the church as a family. We stood before God giving Him charge over our son’s life and asking for His guidance and protection each and every day.

Looking back over this experience, I realize how blessed I am. That God would get my attention in the midst of all the chaos! Letting me know that what’s on my heart came from HIM! Thank you, thank you, thank you heavenly Father for your love!

If God Was With Me, What Would He Say To Me?

This is what the LORD says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears.  I WILL HEAL YOU.  2 Kings 20:5

Most times pain and suffering becomes the catalyst for healing.  When God approaches, He will ask you the following: “Do you want to become well?”  Your ability to trust God will determine your healing.

For a paralytic man at the pool of Bethesda healing came at the crucial age of 38.

There was a certain man there who had suffered with a deep-seated and lingering disorder for thirty-eight years.

When Jesus noticed him lying there [helpless], knowing that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, Do you want to become well? [Are you really in earnest about getting well?]  John 5:5-6 (Amplified Bible)

To get well, you need to really desire earnestly to flee sin and obey God at all cost.  He will not clean you up from a life of sin until you give Him permission (to break the shackles of sin from your life).

In John 5:7, ‘The sick man answered and said: “Oh, my lord, there is no one to put me in the baptismal when the waters are moved, but while I am coming, another goes down before me.”

Most times people tell God why they cannot break sin in their lives rather than asking God to help them break the shackles of sin causing their suffering.  God can do anything we ask Him, we just need to ask the right things of God.

God does not want to hear our excuses.  He wants to know if we want to get well.  When God speaks in our hearts, we must do what He commands to receive healing.

Our Creator created us to walk in LOVE; however, sin caused us to walk in selfishness.  To break the curse of sin, we must reject our old lifestyle and determine to walk in God’s will of LOVE.

palma_il_giovane_001

So Yeshua through his words hear the cry of his heart, commands him to get up, to pick up his bed and to walk in John 5:8-9.  He will risk stoning and death for breaking the Sabbath by carrying his bed in obedience to God.

Yeshua said to him: “Get up! Pick up your bed and walk.  “And immediately that man was healed, and he stood up, took his bed, and he walked, and it was the Sabbath day.”

What God ask of us to attain healing will not come easily initially for each person.  Nevertheless, each of us must obey God to become healed.  Sin paralyzes us to a life of selfishness, suffering and ultimately death away from our Creator.

Sin at first appears enticing and appears to offer the foolish opportunities beyond their wildest imagination until the fool realizes they’ve been hoodwinked, find themselves addicted to sin, a life of pain, a life of suffering and a life that leads to eternal damnation away from God: their Creator.

What are you willing to give up or risk losing to follow God?  You should already know.  You must give up sin: lawlessness.

 

According to Matthew Henry Commentary we must “be careful, that we let not a season slip which may never return….What a joyful surprise to the poor cripple, to find himself of a sudden so easy, so strong, so able to help himself! The proof of spiritual cure, is our rising and walking.  Has Christ healed our spiritual diseases, let us go wherever he sends us, and take up whatever he lays upon us; and walk before him.”.

To operate in your healing, you must do what God commands you to do.  The man believed in Yeshua and acted.  Thus, he received instant healing.  

Why Is The Sabbath Day of Rest Important To God?

Keeping the Sabbath day holy is much more than just physical rest.  It involves spiritual renewal and worship.

–James E. Faust

Satan Introduces Toxic Doctrine To Destroy Us

Let’s take a look at how God’s enemy Satan operates here on earth.  How does Satan attempt to get us to compromise God’s words to us? For example, rat poison is 99.995% inert ingredients–practically 100% good food.  The active ingredient in rat poison is only 0.005% toxic–more or less 0% lethal. Right?  Wrong.  The rat poison is simply undetectable to the rats that consume the poison with gusto until it is too late. At the end the rats die.  

Satan or Lucifer attacks in the same manner with a minuscule amount of lies introduced into the words of God so that we cannot perceive them. The corruption is simply undetectable to humans without the knowledge from God’s Holy Spirit teaching us all things!  

Recall what God says in Exodus 20:8-11. We ought to remember the Sabbath day to keep it holy. God blessed the sabbath day and set it aside for a holy purpose.  Satan comes along and says let us worship God every day!  This sounds reasonable on the surface except that is not what God says!  God instructs us to,

8 “Observe the Sabbath and keep it holy. 9You have six days in which to do your work, 10but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to me. On that day no one is to work — neither you, your children, your slaves, your animals, nor the foreigners who live in your country. 11In six days I, the Lord, made the earth, the sky, the sea, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested. That is why I, the Lord, blessed the Sabbath and made it holy.

 

Special Feast Sabbaths Done Away Not God’s Ten Commandments

The sabbath day has been with us since the beginning of creation and will remain for ever.  Many, however, argue that the sabbath day Jesus nailed to the cross along with the ten commandments. Yes, that is true that it was part of the old covenant nailed to the cross along with the ordinances or book of Moses including  the following: tithing, sacrificing animals, seven feast days that encompassed special sabbath days that no longer apply to us and hundreds of laws that were against us.  So, this can appear confusing.  “How can God allow murder, lying, stealing, adultery, etc.?” my father thought to himself.  It just did not make any sense!  So, he prayed and asked God to help him understand the truth.  

God led him to turn in his Bible to 2 Corinthians 3:3 seconds after his prayer. Paul states that the ten commandments are now written in our hearts by God’s Holy Spirit.  

Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart

 

What Does Satan Want From Us?

Satan of course wants us to dishonor God’s sabbath day of rest and worship of God because Satan wants us to worship him! Let’s look at Matthew 4:9 below where Satan is speaking to Yeshua (Jesus) literally begging Him to bow down and worship him:

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

How did Yeshua respond in verse 10, and how should we respond? [ Do we even recognize when Satan speaks to us or when God speaks to us?]

Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

 

What Does The Sabbath Signify?

The church members are still under attack by Satan today to compromise and worship our enemy.  We must fight back by speaking God’s words to Satan as Yeshua did.  When we obey God, this signifies (it’s a sign) that we are His people.  When we disobey God’s command to remember to keep the sabbath day holy,  this is also a sign that we are not representing God.  If we do not worship God, we obviously worship Satan.  You cannot obey two masters Jesus said; you will love one and hate the other.

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
(Luke 16:13)

 

On Fire For God!

You also cannot be lukewarm or God will spit you out of His mouth–Revelation 3:16.

But because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold, I am going to spit you out of my mouth!

 

God Is The Same Yesterday, Today and Forever!

Furthermore Exodus 31:13-18 states the sabbath is a sign between Yahweh and His people throughout their generations.  

12The Lord commanded Moses 13to say to the people of Israel, “Keep the Sabbath, my day of rest, because it is a sign between you and me for all time to come, to show that I, the Lord, have made you my own people. 14You must keep the day of rest, because it is sacred. Whoever does not keep it, but works on that day, is to be put to death. 15You have six days in which to do your work, but the seventh day is a solemn day of rest dedicated to me. Whoever does any work on that day is to be put to death. 16The people of Israel are to keep this day as a sign of the covenant. 17It is a permanent sign between the people of Israel and me, because I, the Lord, made heaven and earth in six days, and on the seventh day I stopped working and rested.”
18When God had finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two stone tablets on which God himself had written the commandments.

God will not change what He says to us.  He says in Malachi 3:6 the following:

For I am the Lord, I do not change. 

 

Why Do We Fall For The Lies Of The Enemy?

How will you establish a relationship with Yahweh if you do not honor what He commands?  Yahweh says He will blind us with strong delusions if we do not obey Him–see 2 Thessalonians 2:11.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Can the whole world and Satan be right that the Sabbath day is irrelevant to God? Satan placed poison amongst God’s words to us to cause us to forget one of God’s key commandments that God knew we would forget!  That is why God tells us at the start of that commandment to remember it.  

Satan understands fully when we honor God’s sabbath and God’s words to us, we will become blessed by God!  When we obey God’s words to us, Yahweh gives us His Spirit! His Spirit gives us life and the opportunity to live for eternity with God!  

 

God’s Words That Leaves His Mouth Will Accomplish What He Says

 Remember, Yahweh’s words will not go out of His mouth void states Isaiah 55:11 and neither will His fourth commandment for us to remember His Holy day of rest to honor Him the creator.

So will My word be which goes out of My mouth;
It will not return to Me void (useless, without result),
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

The sabbath is a day of rest where we spend time together reflecting not only on God’s words to us, but spending time with God in the day that He chooses to rest, makes holy and walks with us.  His sacred day blesses us.  We recognize God’s children because they remember and honor God’s sabbath day of rest. Remember, God says the sabbath signifies God’s people.  

So understand that Satan wants to convince the world that God’s sabbath does not matter nor is it relevant in our day and age.  Everyday is holy is Satan’s mantra, but that is not what God says!  

Ezekiel 20:12 also confirms that the sabbath day is a sign between God and His people.

Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (James 2:10)

 

How Do We Get Back Into God’s Kingdom?

James the head of the church promotes honoring God’s commandments in the new testament.  John the most beloved disciple of Jesus spoke about honoring God’s commandments in the new testament.  In Revelation 22:14 John says that those who honor God’s commandments have a right to the tree of life.  

14Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Thus, those who do not honor God’s commandments do not have a right to the tree of life.
 
 James the head of the church reminds us that it is not the hearers of the word but the doers of the word that truly have a right to the tree of life: the kingdom of God!  He warns us not to deceive ourselves by simply hearing God’s words and neglecting to do them–James 1:22.

22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Obedience brings peace in decision making. If we have firmly made up our minds to follow the commandments, we will not have to redecide which path to take when temptation comes our way.

–James E. Faust

Satan Symbolized By The Snake Twist God’s Words

  • How does Satan try today to fool God’s children like he tricked Eve into going against what God said in the Garden of Eden?  
  • Why must we stay vigilant?  
  • Why must we recognize the traps of the enemy?  
  • How are we to respond to Satan?
  •  How can we overcome God’s enemy when we are limited in flesh form and knowledge?  

 

These are tough questions that you ought to stop and ponder because God expects us to overcome our enemy.  Jesus did His part dying on the cross for us, but we have our role to play in our salvation through obedience to God.  

We must spend time in prayer with God and obey God’s words to us to overcome our highly manipulative, cunning and often charming enemy!  God warns us that if He does not intervene that Satan will fool even the very elect!

For false Christs and false prophets will appear and they will provide great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect (God’s chosen ones). (Matthew 24:24)

So How Can You Know You Worship God, God Knows You And You Know God?

Finally, the individuals selected by God will not listen to the lies of Satan. They  will hear God’s voice and obey.  They will know without a doubt that God will not make void any word that goes forth from His mouth.  They will pray for understanding when God’s words appear to conflict.  They will continue to seek God daily.  They will serve God with their whole hearts.

Believers will not walk lukewarm in this world.  They will have a fire burning within them that will empower them to do what God calls them to do.  That fire will come from the Holy Spirit living within them.

They will recognize God’s voice and walk in the way that Yahweh directs them.  They will believe that when God says remember the sabbath day to keep it holy that they must do as their Father commands.  They will let every man be a liar, but they will not act as if their God is a liar.  They will possess wisdom which comes from above.They will know the truth, and the truth will truly set them free from the lies of the enemy!

 

Recognizing God’s People By Their Fruits

You will recognize the God’s elect because they will love Yahweh with their whole hearts, minds and soul and their brethren as themselves.  You will know them by their fruits (the fruits of the Holy Spirit): love, joy, peace, patience and long suffering.  There is no law stipulating how much we should love, exhibit joy, quantify a specific amount of peace, patience or long suffering, but, God’s children will reflect these fruits emanating from the power of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit living and working in them.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)

 

God’s Children Possess His Spirit Which Embodies His Character Overflowing With Love

So you can know for sure that you worship God and not Satan when you receive God’s Holy Spirit by accepting and obeying God’s words to us.  The Holy Spirit will not only set you free from Satan and His lies, but will teach you the truth.  God’s Spirit will help you to grow into the character of Yeshua.  When others see and hear you, they will see and hear none other than Yeshua and Yahweh living in you!

 

God’s Children Hate Sin And Walk In Righteousness

Thus with the power of the Holy Spirit, you will learn to truly hate sin and walk in righteousness! You won’t understand or be capable of this without God’s Holy Spirit empowering you!  You will grow day by day in love .  You will also learn more and more about love and reflect God’s character.  The Holy Spirit will teach you all things concerning God and live within you!

 

God Reveals Himself To His Children

When you obey God’s words revealed to you, God will give you greater understanding of His words.  So you will know that you serve God and not Satan.  You will not need to wonder because you will know without a doubt! God will live and work and manifest Himself in you!

 

You Will Recognize Satan When He Comes To You

Satan will come to you at some point after you jump ship and submit yourself one hundred percent over to God and ask God to help you eliminate all sin in your life!  Satan will attempt to get you off course with God.  You, however, will reject him, recognize him for the liar and subtle deceiver that he is and understand who is speaking to you.   The Holy Spirit will reveal the truth to you and teach you things to come.  You will know the voice of God and will only serve and listen to God.  You will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.  Whom the Son sets free is free indeed!

 

The Sabbath Is A Sign Between God And His People For Ever

Exodus 31:16-17 “Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.”

God’s elect will love God by obeying His words, remembering His sacred sabbath day by resting from their labors and worshipping God their creator on His day that He made holy for ever, and they will love their brethren as they love themselves!
 
 
The Ten Commandments Define Sin And Is Our School Master That Leads Us Back To Yahweh
 
 The ten commandments represents the love for God and love for our brethren.  Love still stands and symbolizes the character of God for all eternity.  We cannot murder, lie, commit adultery, worship idols, dishonor our parents, covet our neighbors things nor dishonor God’s holy sabbath day that He hallowed from creation week and truly think we will make it into the kingdom.
