Know the Watchman on the Wall

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. Until that happens my friend, we must remain calm, we must remain watchful, and above all, we must listen for the voice of the Watchman. We are confident that God will do nothing without letting His prophets know so that they can sound a clear and decisive warning. The Bible says, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Unfortunately, we are living in a day with many contradicting voices, some saying one thing and some saying another. There is no clear decisive voice but only a multitude of voices creating greater confusion, which has been the devil’s plan from the beginning. The greater the confusion the less we will be able to hear the warning.

This is becoming an even larger problem as we approach the end. The evil world is increasingly reporting and speaking the first thing that comes into their foolish hearts without ever checking their facts or getting corroborating evidence. They don’t spend the necessary time to properly vet their stories nor do they discern what damage it could cause others if the story is not one hundred percent correct. Moreover, they don’t demonstrate that they have any prudence in the matter whatsoever. If they were prudent then they would not be so quick to report or say what they think they know. It appears for the first time in history, everyone has their own little soapbox broadcasting whatever pops into their minds. We have seen the great damage that this has caused. It has destroyed lives, uprooted families, and driven a deeper wedge between political parties. We are seeing how this is also pitting different races and nationalities one against another bringing our country to the brink of civil war.  The tremendously sad part about all this is it’s spilling over into the Christian community, especially the carnal Christians, leading them to do the same. You would think that Christians should know better from their teachings in Holy Scripture. The Bible says, “A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness” (Proverbs 12:23).

God has given His children a wealth of knowledge in the Bible along with great wisdom gained through applying His truth to our lives. And for those who have gone on before us, they have shared their wisdom in the Bible for living a godly life in an evil world. God’s children are called to be prudent and not foolish. We know that some information is useful for a warning, for comfort, and for building others up in Christ. On the other hand, some information could be destructive, damaging, and lead others into a greater pit of confusion. Therefore, it’s essential that we only pass on information that’s useful for building others up in Christ, helping them to become all that God wants them to be. We need to share information that truly helps other believers to experience transformation in Christ. It’s also necessary, on occasion, to warn others of impending doom and enslavement by the enemy. However, we mustn’t allow these occasional warnings to drown out our responsibility to grow up in Christ working every moment of every day to put off the old life and put on the new life, straining forward to our ultimate objective of transformation in Christ. Remember dear children, this is only a proving ground for eternal life in Heaven. Walk in the Spirit.

As already stated, Jesus Christ is our true Watchman on the wall. All other sources in the world that attempt to warn us of the dangers that lie ahead are seeing through a glass darkly. They simply don’t have a clear picture of things to come. To rely solely on these other sources will only create greater confusion. Moreover, for those who attempt to integrate these sources from the world with their limited ability to interpret Scripture will also not have a clear picture of those things to come. If these things are professed publicly on social media and the internet it could bring great harm to God’s people. We must listen solely to the true Watchman on the wall, Jesus Christ. As God’s beloved children listen only to Christ, they are also led by the indwelling Spirit to be prudent in the knowledge they receive. This is extremely important! Although His servants may have an idea that’s beginning to formulate in their minds on what they think they see in the world, they have also learned how to watch, remain quiet, and WAIT for the appropriate time to sound the warning.

Why is this so important to watch, to remain quiet, and wait before sounding the warning. God has never called His servants the prophets to guess. He called them to be absolutely sure. We have all heard the story about the wolf and the little boy. He kept sounding false warnings and then when the wolf really came, no one believed him. We can only imagine how disastrous it was as the wolf ravaged the little village. We must be absolutely certain before we sound the warning. Having said that, I am not certain who the beast is, and what he will use to mark his followers, those who will freely worship him. On the other hand, I have been sounding a warning for years now, and only a few are listening. Yet, it’s these warnings that will help us to truly identify the beast. Yes, I am watching everything going on, but mainly I am listening to Christ, our Watchman on the wall. Let me say very clearly that anyone who leads God’s children to put their trust in another person, a government, or an agency is already acting like the Antichrist or the beast of Revelation. I have been sounding the warning for many years that the psychiatric industry is leading humanity to put their trust in the system of the beast to provide for all of their emotional and psychological needs.

Finally, our friends in China have given us this unique kind of virus that’s forcing the entire world into lockdown, which the coming Antichrist will use to his advantage. There is something far worse than the physical effects, other than for our older population, that’s invading our world. There is another pandemic sweeping the planet to rob God’s children of their peace. Social media has become the megaphone for their hearts allowing the entire world to see their deep-seated fears, anxiety, and their inner turmoil. This inner conflict is driving them to chase after one conspiracy theory after another in an attempt to explain their growing emotional and psychological problems, which are ripping them apart. What they long for is peace. They desire peace in this very unusual storm that’s affecting humanity in a way never seen before, but thanks to social media we are now seeing it loud and clear. Lockdown is having its effect! We implore all of God’s children, who are being torn apart by this unseen enemy driving them to the threshold of insanity, to turn back to God alone. We need to empty our minds of all this foolishness circulating on the internet and social media and fill our minds with only Christ’s teachings about rejoicing, moderation, prayer, thanksgiving, and how to reject anxiety so that we can discover the amazing peace that defies understanding (See Philippians 4:7). If we fail to do this then my prophecy will come true and the psychological industry will be overwhelmed causing the government to create an edict that everyone must submit to the will of the counselor before they can reenter the society of buying and selling. On that day we will know and proclaim loudly the identification of Antichrist.

The Coming Out, to a New World

I wrote in my last article that when we finally come out of lockdown, we will be entering a new world. Looking beyond all the hype, the fake news, conspiracy theories, and false prophecies, what does God say? Is it even important that we know every detail of the emerging beast system destined to control the largest part of fallen humanity? Without getting too political or casting stones at an opposing party, we must look very carefully at the undercurrent that’s been working for many years in most of our public and private institutions shaping the next generation that will produce the coming beast. Quite frankly, the older generation is dying, bringing with them, their morals, their beliefs, and their standards. In the past Administration, they had set the ship of State to sail in a brand-new direction bringing with it the hopes and aspiration of the younger generation. They had a grand hope of creating a brave new world free from war, hunger, and disease facilitated by the sci-fi movies streaming out of Hollywood. It was then carried further by the liberal professors in all of our great colleges and universities teaching the younger generation that with the right political decisions this hope would become a reality. Then, President Trump was elected and the younger generation along with the liberal elite cried.

Well, a lot has happened since then including this latest pandemic of COVID-19 that’s locked-down the entire world. As we come out of lockdown everyone’s opinions will grow louder and more unbelievable. The air of confusion will be everywhere. Everyone will be talking, and no one will be listening. Then all of sudden they begin to recognize that everything looks different, everything is cleaner, the air is fresher, the skies are bluer. What’s happened? Many will cry out, “What happened to all the smog and the air pollution.” It’s like a new world! Then a solitary voice will arise, later to be joined by a chorus of voices from the liberal establishment and the news media, proclaiming, “This is our new path forward. The religious right and the greedy capitalist had it all wrong. They were destroying our world!” A new gospel will be preached that says we can rebuild a brave new world without God. A new world can be rebuilt without all the confusion caused by the many contradicting beliefs of the religious antagonist. Then a huge cry will emerge from those who cried the loudest four years ago saying, “Let’s redirect the Ship of State. Let’s recover all that’s been lost! Let’s unite our voice against everyone who stands in our way.”

As the older generation is still glued to their homes in fear of coming out too quickly, the younger generation will ascend in a burst of pent up energy ready to change the world. For many years they have been taught the finer points of socialism and can recite the talking points with the greatest of ease. They have all learned well how to accept everyone’s opinion as the new doctrine of tolerance as long as it does not interfere with their socialist propaganda. They have learned how to accept everyone’s religion as long as it does not oppose their socialist agenda. As they venture out into their brave new world it will become increasingly easy to label all dissenters as psychologically unstable. I cannot say for certain who will ascend to the post of authority, nor is it important. Whoever it is, he will be directed by the evil one and the powers of darkness as he commands his followers to throw off the yoke of religious intolerance. He will command his followers to trust in the power of self to realize their new dream. In an instant most Christians will realize that the devil has been behind social media all along creating great confusion among God’s children, dividing them so that they can be easily destroyed. Welcome to the new world!

How can we stand against this new beast system coming upon the world? How can we do this when the beliefs and talking points of the younger generation are so firmly planted in their minds? This is only possible if we speak with one voice and not a chorus of confusion, contradicting doctrines, and far-fetched conspiracy theories. The younger generation will never understand our obsession with the mark of the beast and the many theories that are circulating on social media from a microchip implant to a hidden microchip to be inserted into the COVID-19 vaccine. The world thinks we have gone mad. We as God’s beloved children need to settle this once and for all. The mark of the beast is not secret nor is it mandatory. Clearly, the Bible indicates that it’s a free choice and a public statement of our willingness to follow the system of the beast. It’s our acceptance that Christianity is not the only way and that we should be tolerant of every man’s religion. It’s our acceptance that God has not given us everything we need for life and godliness, so we must depend upon the State for their counseling. We must depend on the State for their mind-altering drugs to manage our emotional and psychological problems. It’s our tolerance for homosexuality, the transgender, bestiality, and many other perverted lifestyles. It’s our acceptance of abortion as a god-given right for all women.

Dear friends as the entire world follows the beast in his path of tolerance and acceptance, then they are only one step removed from taking the mark, all that’s left is their public worship. Even before this final step, the entire world will begin to see the great difficulty in buying and selling. Today if we refuse to take a test to determine our psychological profile it’s nearly impossible to find a job to support our family. As we come out of lockdown many will be required to get a release from their doctor and in some cases from their psychologist to make sure that they are fit for employment. Being left in lockdown for such a long time will create a lot of anxiety and stress among the world’s population. Simply put you will not be able to enter back into the society of buying and selling until you have been approved. For the younger generation, this will not be a problem, because they have already been taught to accept this truth as the new normal. For the older generation, it will be much more difficult and those who resist or continue publicly with their conspiracy theories will be marked as being psychologically unstable.

We can choose our candidates and holler that the sky is falling all day long, but nothing will change the course that the world has been set on except living out our faith every moment of every day. As God’s beloved children we must come together as one, agreeing on the basic principles of our faith and stop all the senseless rhetoric that’s creating so much confusion. We cannot say that we are different and then act like the world. We cannot say that we love one another and follow the world in their same sins of spousal abuse, malicious talk, and hatred for one another. We cannot tell the world that we trust in our God for everything then seek their counsel and drugs when we cannot deal with our anxiety or depression. We cannot tell the world that we believe that Christ is the only way and then listen to what other religions have to say about life. We cannot tell the world that we would be willing to die for our Lord and then deny His Lordship in our lives. If we really want to stand against the beast system that’s being developed right before our eyes, then we must stand for the truth by living out what we say that we believe. Believe me, children, the more you live for Christ the clearer the beast system, and his mark will come into focus, otherwise, you will continue to run after every new conspiracy theory.

Satan’s Goal is to Dress You in the Shroud of Darkness

Are you dressed in the garment of light or the shroud of darkness? As we stand before the beast on the stage of history, we must NOT allow him to dress us in the shroud of darkness. His goal is to turn you from the light by introducing you to the darkness. His goal is to take you by the hand and lead you to believe that you have the power within yourself to become whatever you imagine yourself to be in this fallen world. He will teach you that you can pull yourself up by your own bootstraps. He will even convince you that you are on the side of righteousness and fighting against evil. However, when the veil is lifted you realize that once again Satan is leading you to take a bite of the proverbial apple telling you that you can be as gods. The Bible says, “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” (Genesis 3:5). The old devil was right about one thing, to disobey God will allow you to have an intimate relationship with both good and evil. Ultimately, it will put you on a collision course between the powers of darkness and light.

Satan’s goal is to dress you in the shroud of darkness. I call it a shroud because once you are fully dressed in it then you will be spiritually dead. You will be cut off and separated from your Holy God. Satan knows he cannot openly offer most people the ways of evil even if he promises them great power. Therefore, he must dress up the evil in the garments of righteousness, essentially calling evil, good. Satan has had many thousands of years practicing this, to perfect this art of deception in our day. As you stand before the beast dressed in the garments of light, he will attempt to put his shroud of darkness on you in the presence of the second religious type beast, (which is the vision I received before writing this article). So, let’s work together to interpret this vision and specifically how Satan will deceive the whole world to accept this shroud as something good for mankind. Perhaps the first key in our interpretation is that the religious type beast is clearly involved by handing the black shroud to the beast to dress the individual that’s already dressed in a beautiful garment of white light, that appeared to shimmer in my vision. Although the vision was shocking and quite disturbing, we must continue our quest to determine what God is attempting to teach us in this vision.

Let’s take a closer look at this beautiful garment of white light, that appeared to be shimmering. This garment signifies what Christ did for us when we made a conscious decision to follow Him in His death and resurrection. We heard the good news and accepted it believing that we had been forgiven for all of our past transgressions. We believed the promise that He would make us into a brand-new creation. Wow, for a short moment in time we were on the proverbial cloud nine. Never had we felt so free. Never had we ever felt so clean through the power of forgiveness. We could not wait to go tell our family and friends what Christ had done for us. Could this be for real? For the joy and excitement was beyond anything we had experienced before. Then something happened. Why didn’t other Christians feel like us? Why did evil start to creep back into our lives? We discovered soon enough that the evil one was trying to rob us of our great joy. Growing spiritually and trying to listen to the voice of God was more difficult than we had anticipated. It was not long before even some of our old emotional and psychological problems began to re-surface. Where was the Biblical counsel? Where were the promises? As I write this, I weep that there are many Christians in our churches asking these very same questions today. What started as a beautiful garment of white light was now looking more like the shroud of darkness. The shroud was used to wrap up a corpse, thus signifying in our vision becoming spiritually dead and separated from a Holy God

Now back to the vision: This shroud of darkness that came from the hand of the second religious type beast should give us all pause. Although this shroud of darkness signified separation from a Holy God and putting us at the mercy of Satan, we can put a stop to it. We will discover together how we as God’s children can reject or refuse the shroud of darkness offered by the second religious type beast. If this religious type beast is representative of all the religions in the world then they must all agree. If we can discover this agreement, then it will help us to interpret the vision and learn together how to stand against Satan and his beast. I believe one thing that all modern religions tend to agree on is that it’s acceptable to seek counsel from the world’s psychiatrist and the use of the latest drugs designed supposedly to cure your emotional and psychological problems. To do so will destroy your trust in whatever god you pray to. It will lead you to cross the line and put trust in your ability to solve your problems without God’s help exclusively. The moment we take God out of the equation then we freely accept the shroud of darkness from the hands of the beast, which will sever all meaningful relationships with our God. As Adam and Eve were driven out of the garden for desiring to become as gods, we too will be driven out of His presence unless we repent.

So many in our day have the label of being a Christian and may be actively involved in their church, yet don’t have that intimate relationship with their Creator. They don’t hear the inner voice of the indwelling Spirit and they still struggle with many of their old sins. They don’t feel much like they are dressed in the beautiful garment of light. The good news is it’s not too late to resist the shroud of darkness by trusting in God exclusively for all of life and trusting Him to fulfill all of His promises. When you do then the joy of your salvation will return as God restores His relationship with you. Dear friends, it’s time to raise a banner that says, “Come Out from Among Them.” It’s time to learn how to trust God for all of your emotional and psychological problems. It’s time to raise an army of righteousness to teach God’s truth from His Word in the Bible. It’s time for the faithful remnant to arise as the children of light teaching lukewarm Christians how to throw off the shroud of darkness that was given to them by the lukewarm church, representing the second religious type beast. Time is running out! We must act now while there is still light for the darkness is fast approaching. Repent now or join the sons of darkness in receiving all the plagues, woes, and pandemics that are clearly in the process of being poured out upon fallen humanity.

We Are on the Precipice of Change

In the next eight months, we may very well see the greatest change ever take place since the technological revolution in the new world. Two great political and social forces are struggling for dominance while most of the world’s population is pulled along giving them only fabricated lies and empty promises. The blind masses are completely oblivious as to what’s going on behind the scenes. The real struggle is happening behind the scenes in the spiritual realm between the powers of darkness and the children of light. It’s happening between the powers of heaven and hell. Perhaps one of the greatest struggles of all time. We need great patience for all of your beloved children to open their eyes fully and wait; wait to see the hand of God exposing the powers of evil attempting to enslave the entire human race. We don’t know if it will come from the left or the right, but we do know that your faithful remnant will see it and stand firm against the great deception that is already at work in the world, causing you to send forth a strong delusion. The reason we write, “from the left or the right,” is to force our eyes open, both physical and spiritual, to let God show us the truth of who is behind the greatest deception to fall upon the world. If we are locked into either side then we have accepted all their propaganda, overlooked many of the questionable behaviors and policies, and have not properly thought through where it could all lead if they gained total dominance.

Our goal must be to have total open-mindedness so that we are not caught in the trap of lying deception. I would be wary of any side that makes outrageous promises to the followers of Christ, even if those promises are only directed to the liberal element of the Church. Let’s not forget how Hitler was able to seduce the Christian churches in Germany by making outrageous promises to cleanse the Church from all the impurities of the world. We must, it’s essential, to keep an open mind even after we cast our vote. Let us not underestimate the powers of evil that could raise-up an opposing political party that seems so bad and so morally wrong, that it would blindly drive voters to the other side, to embrace the best of two evils. We must look much deeper than all the propaganda. We must look deeper than just the person running, by allowing God to show us the evil intentions of global dominance and the ensuing slavery of the human race. We cannot do this if we have already bought into all the propaganda of our chosen party. We cannot do this if we are unwilling to listen to what God has to say about our choices.

Let me be very clear that God hates the sin of murder, abortion, and homosexuality but He also hates other sins that are completely ignored in our time. To champion, the fact that we stand against abortion and homosexuality but allow the other sins into our lives will set us up to be deceived and rest under the deluding influence sent by God for rejecting the truth. God’s truth embraces all of His holy commandments. It embraces our faith and trust in God alone to bring forth His Kingdom, His way. The Bible says, “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 (II Thessalonians 2:10-11). So, this delusion sent by God is for rejecting the truth and believing the lie. The one who will come very soon and has been working behind the scenes for many years will enslave the entire human race by teaching them to believe the lie. When he comes in the flesh and recognized by the faithful remnant, he will require that everyone must believe the lie. Why is this so important?  Because our salvation depends on us believing the truth, and Satan knows it. He cannot enslave humanity if we reject the lie and believe only the truth. This is exactly what we need to be watching for as the greatest change in over three hundred years takes place. We are on the precipice of change!

We must ask the question, “what is the lie and how believing this lie will allow the coming beast or Antichrist to control the human race. To reject God’s truth and not trust in God alone, will cause us to believe the lie of Satan and be enslaved by the powers of darkness. You may reject the horrible sins of homosexuality and abortion but, nevertheless, you will remain enslaved by the powers of darkness. This change will attack the very belief system of every Christian. There is something much worse and much more sinister that will attack the core belief of every Christian in the world. In many ways, it’s much worse than communism that’s mostly defeated around the world where many Christians are arising and throwing off the yoke of heathenism. It’s even far worse than Islam that is seeing many people coming to Christ in the strictest of Islamic countries standing firm even under persecution. Satan is not too concerned with the heathen for he already has them under his control. No, the greatest danger to Christianity is what attacks our faith in God. Faith is believing the truth but it’s also trusting God to fulfill His promises to mankind. If this trust is broken or exchanged by trusting in another then they will be easily controlled by the Antichrist and his religion for all of humanity no matter which god, they pray too. I have been preaching for many years that this new religion that can be practiced by every person in the world without giving up their traditional beliefs or even their non-beliefs is destructive to our faith. This new world religion will be pushed and eventually required to be believed and practiced by everyone in the world. This change is coming soon!

They will no longer trust their God alone to supply all their physical, emotional, and psychological needs. Rather they will trust the new religion of the State and failure to do so will make you an enemy of the State subject to incarceration or death. So, what is the new religion that will be pushed by the beast or the Antichrist that comes from the pit of hell? The new religion will lead you to put trust in your counselors for all of your emotional and psychological problems. It will lead you to put trust in your government to supply all of your physical needs. It will lead you to put your trust in yourself for all of your spiritual needs. Without trust, there can be no faith. Remember the words of Jesus, “shall he find faith on the earth” when He returns (See Luke 18:8). The lie believes that mankind must solve his own problems through psychological counseling and the administering of psychotropic drugs thus ignoring the Bible and the power of the indwelling Spirit. He no longer believes or trusts God to make them into new creations giving them everything they need for life and godliness. Rather they are led to put their trust in the establishment, the medical field, the psychotherapist and everyone else except Jesus Christ alone. I believe the greatest change to fall upon humanity is the requirement to put our trust in the coming leader, whomever that will be, to give us everything we need for all of life. This will be a remarkable figure who will garner the trust of the entire world through strength and supposed miracles, even promising peace and prosperity. We are on the precipice of change!

Are You Fit for the Kingdom?

Jesus Christ stated that some people simply aren’t fit for the Kingdom. What? Yes, that’s correct! Until they change their way of thinking, they are not fit for the kingdom. This has proven to be a huge problem in today’s world. Many have come into the church without changing their way of thinking. They have come into the church and have expected, no demanded, that the church change its way of thinking to fit their interests and desires. They have memorized the Bible stories, some favorite verses of Scripture, learned many of their praise songs, and have learned well how to play church but have not changed their way of thinking. They have entered the church and have set their hands to the plough to do the Lord’s work in the kingdom, but they are not fit for the kingdom. Why? Let’s listen to the words of Jesus. “And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62). So, looking back is the problem. That is, looking at their own interests, their own agenda, and their own expectations based on the humanistic knowledge of their previous life.

In the first illustration our Lord gives, He indicates that the man was not prepared for the new life. Although the man said he was prepared to follow Christ wherever He went, Christ had perceived that his old life of comfort, familiarity, and his years of assimilated knowledge would be too difficult for him to leave (See verse 57, 58). He would not be prepared for the tremendous changes in his lifestyle that would lie ahead. He would not be prepared to jettison all of his accumulated knowledge in exchange for the vast amount of true wisdom in the Bible, a completely new way of thinking, and an amazingly different way of looking at things. Like most people coming into the church today, they want to bring with them the accumulated knowledge from the professionals of psychology along with a mixture of other world religions, political bias, and a legion of information from the school of hard knocks. Here’s the problem! They are not much interested in dumping all this worldly knowledge but are much more interested in trying to assimilate it with God’s truth.

We live in a world that has over-analyzed every minute detail of life filling up volumes upon volumes to explain man’s behavior, his emotions, and his psychological problems. This new knowledge is being taught in every area of society from the cradle to the grave. It’s in our entertainment, from the movies we watch to the music we listen to, and to the books we read. It’s in public education from the earliest grades to our most prestigious schools of higher learning. It has also taken a prominent role in the workplace from hiring guidelines to required tests for employment to guidance for management and employees. This new knowledge has even gained a significant foothold in the churches of every religion, and specifically Christianity. To the average person living today this new knowledge has become essential for understanding and managing all of their challenges, their sorrows, and their many problems in life. This new knowledge has become so assimilated into the mindset of humanity that most people including Christians are left only with the professionals of this age in psychology to help them when things get too difficult to manage on their own. Unfortunately, the church no longer counsels only from God’s Holy Word, but integrates information from the professional into their counseling sessions or simply refers their flock to them directly.

After a decade of dismal failure that’s literally ripping the world apart humanity needs to jettison this corrupt knowledge from psychology and follow Jesus Christ who offers them a treasure trove of biblical wisdom to reshape their thinking process, to overcome every obstacle, along with every emotional and psychological problem. Although this wisdom is absolutely free, it takes faith believing that Jesus Christ is the only Way to a new life, a life more abundantly. Although this biblical wisdom will transform your life, it must be applied to your life by completely throwing out the old belief system that’s captured the entire world. The Bible talks about putting off the old life (See Ephesians 4:22-24), which includes our wrong thinking and impure thoughts. Wrong thinking and impure thoughts inevitably lead to bad behavior and a multitude of emotional and psychological problems. Moreover, wrong thinking and impure thoughts lead to what the Bible calls sin and its consequences of eternal damnation. Clearly, to put our hand to the proverbial plough and look back by seeking the world’s knowledge to solve our problems will make us unfit for the kingdom. We must let go of the world’s corrupt knowledge. In essence, we must die to self, allowing God to make us into a beautiful new creation (See II Corinthians 5:17).

Unfortunately, many will not make that commitment. They are like the other two illustrations that Jesus Christ uses (See verses 59-61). They both had ready excuses as to why they could not follow Christ and make the needed commitment to become one of His disciples. Yes, applying God’s truth to our life is the most difficult part. It’s difficult to change your way of thinking and acting, especially the thinking part! Believe me, it’s much easier to stop those more obvious sins that even the fallen world frowns upon, rather than those secret sins of the mind. Instead of offering excuses, pulling back, or running away we need to study all 121 commands in the New Testament that describe the new life in Christ. Obedience is application. Every step of the way the indwelling Spirit will encourage you as God’s Grace empowers you. Don’t put it off. It’s time to apply all of God’s truth to your life, which is ONLY possible if we stop believing the lies or the old knowledge that’s captured the world. We live in a world that’s obsessed with looking back on the knowledge that they have previously assimilated, while the world around them is falling apart. Professing themselves to be wise they have become a little more than fools. Make an assertive effort today to apply only God’s truth to your life. You will be happy that you did.

“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:62).
