We Are the Faithful Remnant

As we draw closer to the end no one will doubt the increase in wickedness and the power of Satan. They won’t doubt the destruction of humanity and our home, planet Earth. We would all have to be blind to miss what is happening all around us. However, what most will not easily admit is how difficult it is to stay pure in an impure world. They will not easily admit their tremendous struggle with the things they see and hear in the world. There is a growing group within all of Christianity that admits to this struggle and have banded together through small groups in churches, in business and on Social Media to support one another in prayer and mutual encouragement. By way of introduction, we are the faithful remnant. Some have referred to their selves as the remnant army, but whatever we call ourselves our goals are the same to stay holy in a wicked world that’s being slowly destroyed from within.

We are the faithful remnant. Our allegiance is to Jesus Christ alone above any organization established by self-righteous man. We see clearly the polarization taken place in the world and within Christendom. Some of the faithful remnant may remain in their respective groups, organizations, and churches but they sense the difference. They know that their faith is different. It’s more radical and focused on God alone. They know those things in the world that tug on their faith. They have learned those things in the world that want to interrupt their time with the indwelling Spirit. They have learned to control their emotions but also how to embrace the positive emotions to the glory of God. They also long for and expect the transformation to take place in their lives. Finally, we are not a cult by anyone’s standards because we stay within the groups that we were called. If we came out of the group, the organization or the Church, we would no longer be considered a remnant. We are not divisive, nor do we entertain a split.

We are the faithful remnant. No matter what happens in the future our faith grows stronger every day. Yes, we hear the cries and the complaining. We hear the agony of others who are ready to give up their holy pilgrimage and just be good to their selves and plunge into the many social activities or entertainment the world has to offer. We hear their excuses for not redeeming the time; for not taking the time to walk with God in the Spirit. On the other hand, we of the faithful remnant relish those times of quiet solitude in the Spirit that can last for hours. It’s not just another religious duty, it’s life in the Spirit. When things happen we may experience all the same negative emotions as the world, but they are very short lived. As we turn to the Lord we have learned how to dissipate fear, anxiety, anger, wrath, and even a momentary lapse of depression. We have embraced all the positive emotions of each of the Spiritual fruits and especially love, even for our enemies.

We are the faithful remnant. We long for the transformation and expect it. So, we don’t look back on our previous life before we knew Christ because we know those things have passed away. We don’t even dwell on past failures, because we know that we have been forgiven and as far as God is concerned it no longer exists. We hear the world tell us how they have discovered their personality type and are eager to live up to it, on the other hand we know and believe that our personality is changing every day to be more like our Savior Jesus Christ. We hear the world say that they can never change who they are because some counselor told them they would always struggle with the same psychological problem for the rest of their life. We say that God has already delivered us from our past life and its multitude of problems, now we have this bountiful life in Him to the glory of God. As the world grows more-evil and trapped in their old lives, we are growing and becoming more like Christ every day. We are being transformed.

We are the faithful remnant. When we come before Lord in the Spirit it makes little difference of our surroundings. If we are in a small hut in the deepest part of the jungle, the prison cell, on death row or in the comfort of our home, it makes little difference if we are in the Spirit, the safest and happiest place to be. We have been accused of being too Holy or being too extreme in our Christian pilgrimage, for we bear in our body the marks of Christ in our fight against the real enemy of our souls. Every vain imagination and immoral thought that has been cast at us by the enemy, but we have successfully repelled them to the glory of God. We have also repelled the hateful and threatening words spoken to us by the heathen encouraged by the enemy. Our emotions are still intact and the joy of things to come still enters our hearts. We have remained faithful. The prayer that’s always on our lips is that God will strengthen the inner man to stand firm as we see the many signs of His coming all around us. From blood moons to earthquakes we are ready. May we, your faithful remnant always be Holy and righteous in the Lord singing praises to you out of our good conscience. Amen. We are the faithful remnant.

Posting the Indisputable Doctrines of The Faithful Remnant

When posting the indisputable doctrines of the faithful remnant it will cut clean across the fault lines of modern Christianity. As Martin Luther nailed the ninety-five theses to the door of the Catholic Church and later said “Here I stand, I can do no other,” we too must take our stand on the truth. As the world moves further away from the truth of God’s Word and seeks to live by its higher knowledge we have witnessed the moral decline of society. Unfortunately, many so-called Christians have joined with them creating open hostility against the faithful remnant, those who hold to these indisputable doctrines that are stated in this article. I have been personally attacked and threatened for the teachings that I so dearly hold onto with the same determination of those early Christians who took their stand against their persecutors. Please read carefully allowing God’s Holy Spirit to lead you to accept these truths and join the ranks of the faithful remnant. Then join me as we spread the truth to all those who have ears to hear. Here I stand, I can no other.

Most Christians believe that the devil exists. The differences arise in how much power they believe the devil has in our day. While some believe that the devil has no real power and rarely discuss him, there are others who believe that he is so powerful that he disrupts every single area of the believer’s life leading them to cast out devils from almost everyone, again and again. We believe that both these positions are extreme and miss the biblical admonition to stand against the wiles of the devil. It’s essential to understand just how powerful and deceptive these wiles are for the modern-day believer. (For a complete description of the wiles see my book “Stand Firm.”) This article will only concern the wiles that have put most of humanity into bondage including so-called believers or carnal Christians. These wiles are not new but have truly been here from the beginning when the devil tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden. The temptation was simple and direct, the devil said “Yea, hath God said? … for God doth know in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil” (See Genesis 3:2-5). This elevated knowledge of man or what man thinks he knows has put him into the proverbial driver’s seat or the seat of God. To ascend to an epic point in his pride where he thinks he knows more than God, which is idolatry.

Simply put, the devil is still attempting to lead God’s children to reject the promise of a new and better life without the intellectual help of fallen humanity. Jesus said, “The thief [talking about the devil] cometh not, but to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). A bountiful life full of love for one another and a peace that defies understanding. A life that is no longer brought low by all the sin and stress in the world. A life that rises above all the emotional and psychological problems affecting fallen humanity. A new life that is made holy where truly old things pass away. This was echoed by the Apostle Paul who said, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: the old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (II Corinthians 5:17). This is the first indisputable doctrine for the faithful remnant. We believe if God can make us perfect in the beginning then He can also recreate us putting our feet on the path that leads to perfection without the help of self-righteous man. We have no reason to fear transformation. We not only believe it, we expect it. So, we search the Scripture to see how to experience this new life, how to enter into it, and how to enjoy all its promises without the world’s counsel.

This leads us to the second indisputable doctrine of the faithful remnant. We believe that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. We believe in the sufficiency of Scripture. The Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). That should settle it for most believers, but it doesn’t. They simply do not believe that God has given us all the information we need for living this new life in Christ. They figure that this is a new day and God does not have all the answers, so we must rely on fallen humanity to come up with the solutions. Well, we have seen how that has worked out! Since humanity has turned away from trusting in God alone it has sought the world’s counsel, caused a drug epidemic, greatly increased the immorality in the world, and has brought it to the brink of destruction. On the other hand, the faithful remnant has sought to live by God’s Word alone without mixing in the half-truths of the devil. Remember, it’s the devil who comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.

Although the Bible is replete with instructions on how to put off the old life and put on the new life in Christ (See Ephesians 4:17 – 5:33), we have been given the Holy Spirit as a seal of our new life to grow us from one degree of glory to another. This is the next indisputable doctrine of the faithful remnant. Unlike the teachings of the world that keeps fallen humanity in bondage to their old life with a static personality that can never change, we have a dynamic personality that is in a constant flux of change becoming more like Jesus Christ. Furthermore, the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth (see John 16:13) producing ever manner of spiritual fruit to the glory of God (See Galatians 5:22-23). As we continue to grow spiritually in this new life every believer receives spiritual gifts to be used for building up the body of Christ (see I Corinthians 12). Friends, it is God through our faith that brings forth change in the believer’s life. The Bible says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” (II Corinthians 3:18). Amen! The old life with all its old struggles with sin and hurts are passing away. We learn how to forgive and forget. We learn how to let go of the past and press on to the upward calling in Christ Jesus our Lord (see Philippians 3:14). Of course, if you don’t believe these indisputable doctrines of the faithful remnant and turn back to the world for its counsel and psychiatric drugs then it will not happen for you. You will remain stuck in the past, stuck in your old life, and stuck in bondage to the enemy – the old devil.

I hope that you have seen so far that each of these doctrines are indisputable for those of the faithful remnant that’s needed to stand against the wiles of the devil. The last indisputable doctrine is that God only gave us one way to the new life in Christ and that is through His Son Jesus Christ. What He did on the Cross paid the price for all our sins, past, present and future. When He arose from the grave on the third day He paved the way to a new life in Him demonstrated so beautifully through believer’s baptism. We believe that nothing in this world can add any truth to our new life. The disciplines of psychology and psychiatry can add nothing to our new life. The discipline of philosophy and higher learning can add nothing to our new life. New age thinking, and other world religions can add nothing to our new life. There is no other discipline. There is no other path. There is no other God. All other paths lead straight to hell. In the last days most of humanity including many who claim to know Christ will not accept these indisputable doctrines. They will continue getting their worldly counsel and psychiatric drugs unable to experience all the blessings of the new life in Christ. When Christ returns He will only know those who are living their new Life-in-Christ. Here I stand, I can do no other.

The Amazing Truth of What We Were Originally Created to Be

I firmly believe that we would need to be blind if we haven’t seen the great trouble humanity and the world is experiencing. We appear to be on the brink of imploding. That is, like the ancient Roman Empire, we will not be destroyed from the great forces from outside, but from within. The trajectory of humanity and the world will end in death and destruction, if we don’t return to what we were originally created to be. We need to return to the beginning to understand, the amazing truth of what we were originally created to be. To the very beginning when humanity was created by God in His image, in the image of Him He created them (See Genesis 1:27). No one can really say how long our first parents, Adam and Eve, were in the Garden of Eden or even how many others were there with them. But one thing we know for sure that those who were created had a personal and dynamic relationship with God. For He walked with them in the Garden in the cool of the day (See Genesis 3:8). God spoke to them in an audible voice giving them instructions and seeing to their every need. There was great freedom with only one known restriction. There was nothing to harm them. They had independent thought as they named and had dominion over all other forms of life.

They were living and enjoying their lives as they were created to be in total innocence, until they disobeyed. Every believer knows the story of the fall. How that once beautiful relationship with their Creator was now severed. In essence God let them go allowing them to sink deeper and deeper into the inevitable consequences of their sin. A remarkable thing surfaced almost immediately about human nature. They simply could not continue without some higher power directing them. Someone or something outside themselves giving them comfort or courage when things were not going so well. This longing caused them to fashion all manner of creatures, sticks and stones to guide their paths. As they advanced in knowledge of the universe they chose stars and planets to guide their thoughts and actions. Although God’s chosen people, the Jews, in time threw off these crutches as useless idols and returned to God, they as a people were not ready to accept the culmination of their faith, the restored life in Christ. They along with the larger part of humanity have remained dead in their trespasses, cut off and separated from their Holy God, their Creator. So many then and now have missed the good news that Jesus Christ came to bring life. (See John 10:10)

For the past two thousand years, just a faithful remnant has truly understood the new life and entered into it with great joy. A new life that forgets what is behind and presses on to a glorious future with a peace that defies understanding (See Philippians 3:13-14; 4:7). Yet, the greatest part about this new life is the restored relationship with our one True God, our Creator. To be able to talk and walk with God along life’s narrow way. To long for those times to be in the Spirit, listening and learning from the Master Himself. To receive His counsel when things don’t go so well, or when we are mistreated by others. To receive His direction when we are faced with a fork in the road. To never feel loneliness, anxiety, or depression for more than just a moment in time, because His counsel and love is always ever present. Even so called righteous anger is very short lived causing us to truly forgive and forget. No matter what happens to the rest of humanity and the world we have the assurance that we will not suffer as the pagan. That nothing can separate us from the love of God (See Romans 8:38).

On the other hand, as I have already alluded too, the rest of humanity will not be so fortunate. They have rejected this new life as a lie continuing on to find other things to support them in their misery. Not unlike the pagan who sought out their idols to give them direction, modern man has sought out his higher learning to be his help in the time of need and his sure course to a happy and fulfilled life. The problem, however, is it has not led to a fulfilled life, but to a life of disappointments and deep-seated emotional or psychological problems. In most, leading to a life of greater immorality. At which point we see the God of heaven letting go, allowing them to sink deeper into the inevitable consequences of their sin (See Romans 1:24,26,28). This I believe, is what’s happening right now. Fallen humanity has rejected their God. They have rejected this once beautiful and majestic relationship to independently try and solve their own problems through their higher learning or by creating other gods. So, God has let them go. How tragic. As fallen humanity sinks deeper into the consequences of their sins, they will become the cause of their own destruction.

Should the faithful remnant give up? God forbid! They say that proof is in the pudding or if it works I’ll take it. The fallen world is no longer listening. They have heard the old, old story. They have received the invitations. They have heard the promise, but have they seen it work? We say that God has given us a new life in Christ. We claim that God speaks to us and everything is so rosy, but the world is crying out in agony, yelling at the top of her lungs, “Where is the proof.” Dear friends, we are the proof. When tragedy strikes how do we act? When we are faced with a sudden emotional or even a psychological problem? How do we act? What do we do? Does the world see us running to the world’s counsel (or even so-called biblical counsel based on the methods of the world) and their array of drugs? Do they instead see us kneel in submission to our Father in Heaven listening to His counsel through the indwelling Spirit, through God’s Holy Word the Bible, or from His faithful servants who are proving their worth by walking as they should? When you are wronged in public how do you react? Do you react as the world does and respond with hateful language? Finally, how about your spouse. Can they see Christ living in you at all times? Can they see the new life in-Christ, becoming more like Christ daily?

In conclusion, have we grown indistinguishable from the crowd? We should feel compelled to always stand out from the rest. To let our light shine ever so brightly in world full of darkness (See Matthew 5:14-16). To let people see the changes that God has made in our lives. To always publicly give Him the glory. We need to be cognitive of this every time we take a step outdoors into the public arena and when they ask about the hope that we have be ready and willing to give it (See I Peter 3:15). Let me encourage you to tell them about your brand-new life where old things are passing away and behold all things have become new (See II Corinthians 5:17). To tell them that this was all accomplished by God, through His Son, Jesus Christ on the Cross. Dear friends, we can tell the old, old story, but they also need to see the change in us, they need to see the proof or everything we say is meaningless. There is great power in our personal testimony when they can also see the change. This is the amazing truth of what we were originally created to be, our new life that has a very personal and dynamic relationship with the God of all creation. Amen

Learn the Path to Perfection in A World Full of Hate

So, how can we, “Learn the path to perfection in a world full of hate.” I believe there is a great desire to be perfect. We have always wanted the perfect haircut, the perfect set of clothes or the perfect marriage. It is in our human nature to want perfection. Yet, it’s a proven fact that very few find it and now we live in a day where most no longer desire it. Many, on the other hand, desires selfish power and control over others which has turned them into very hateful people. In a world full of bullies, antagonists and mean-spirited people there is no wonder that the world is so divided. Where they tend to hang out with their own kind developing groups of like-minded people, sharing the same philosophy of life, the same political persuasion, the same goals and aspirations and the same moral compass. These divisions have caused a great deal of malicious attacks one against another. It’s difficult to scan the news headlines without seeing this vicious attack coming from once reputable organizations. Unfortunately, this will continue until we as a people desire once again to find the path to perfection.

They say that the easiest thing to do is to love those who love you. To honor and respect those who honor and respect you. The Bible says, “For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? Do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? Do not even the publicans so” (Matthew 5:46-47). Jesus Christ pointed these divisions out among the people two thousand years ago and the divisions persist until this day. It’s what He says next that points us to the path that leads to perfection. Jesus said, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). So, to be perfect is to look beyond our differences, to look beyond the rough exterior of another person and learn to look at their heart. This is exactly what Jesus Christ did when He walked among us. He went to lost sheep of Israel. He went to the poor, the disadvantaged and those rejected by the religious elite of His day, turning unlearned men into great men of God, as Apostles of Christ. (See Acts 4:13) Jesus Christ saw the possibility by looking deep within their hearts knowing that He could mold them and make them into the kind of men that they were created to be.

So how does this apply to us living in the 21st Century? We see the divisions and may not only feel helpless to do anything about it, but actually join in with fault finding or making malicious attacks against those who believe differently than we do. I believe we have all been guilty of this at one time or another, especially on Social Media. It’s been all too easy to run with our own group. To run with those who agree with us. The world takes great pride in establishing their polls giving special significance to them if a large number of people feel the same way. However, even within these larger groups there still tends to be disagreements and divisions, with some espousing their own opinion. It’s even more problematic among religious groups because they tend to separate over theological interpretation creating an infinite number of secs within the greater Church. Furthermore, their fear of losing their perceived holiness often leads to a lack of love between the groups. Let’s be very clear about something, to love someone we totally disagree with, who does not conform to our moral compass or belief system, does not diminish our holiness. God is said to love the entire world and I firmly believe that His holiness is still intact. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Clearly, we can and should love everyone while keeping our holiness intact. To do so will put us on the path that leads to perfection.

We must learn to look past all the confused and corrupt theology. To look past the gross immorality. To look beyond all the sin and hate. To look beyond the political position or party affiliation. To look past the fear of what they can do against us. To look at the heart of the other individual. To see the possibility of their redemption. That is exactly what the God of love did when He called you out of darkness to a marvelous light (See I Peter 2:9). We do not need to relax our morality to love others. In fact, we need it. We need the Law of God to show us how to love God and how to love one another. To obey His Law allows God to love others through us and puts us on the path to perfection. So, as we venture out of our comfort zone, not necessarily on Social Media, but in person, face to face we allow God to love others through us by following His beloved commandments. The Bible talks about being reconciled with our brother, agreeing with our adversary, turning the other cheek, giving to those who ask, and going the extra mile to name just a few (See the Sermon on the Mount). It talks about not resisting an evil person and in another place answering an individual with gentleness (See I Peter 3:15). The list could go on, but we have the Holy Spirit to guide us in building relationships outside our comfort zone always looking for an opportunity to rescue others in bondage to the enemy.

Dear friends, I cannot over emphasize the importance of allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us when we reach across the aisle to demonstrate our love, especially to an unbeliever or someone holding false Christian theology or to the person of a different world religion. We must maintain our righteousness even in the face of hostility always allowing God to lead. Only shake the dust off your feet and withdraw if we are led to do so. Do you want to be perfect in your obedience to Christ then utilize His Law to extend your Christian love to everyone you come into contact, without judging them? The Bible says, “If you really keep the royal law found in the Scripture, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself,’ you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it” (James 2:8-10). Dear children walk in obedience to the whole law and extend your love even to your enemy and you will be on the path that leads to perfection (See Matthew 5:43-44).

In conclusion, let me say that most people that are completely different than you and in need of your love are also in bondage to the enemy. The only way that they can escape their bondage is to hear the good news that Christ came to give them a new life in Him, where old things pass away and behold all things become new (see II Corinthians 5:17). The good news that they can overcome all of their emotional problems and even deal with the so-called psychological problems. In love they need to hear it’s much more than just a free ticket to eternal life or a life of rules and regulations. They need to hear about the joy and peace of the new life in Christ. If they can’t see it in you, they won’t believe that it exists. So, let me encourage you to get on the path to perfection today bringing God’s message to the world wrapped in love – love from the Father. Amen.

Resist the Lies of The Devil by Walking in The Promises

The lies of the devil have caused most of the problems in our world today. It’s not just the lies, but the fact that so many of the world’s population actually believe the lies. Have you ever wondered why there is such an increase in emotional and psychological problems? It’s reported in 2014 that 91% of the population would seek a mental health professional if they had a problem. Have you ever wondered why there is such an increase in drug addiction? It’s also reported that in the same year that 8 million Americans battled both drug addiction and a mental health disorder concurrently. Perhaps the most alarming statistic to me was the increased numbers in suicide globally. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Worldwide, 800,000 people die due to suicide every year, according to the World Health Organization. The shocking fact is the Church is not exempt from these problems. Psychological problems, drug addiction and suicide are caused primarily from listening to the lies of the devil. So, follow me along to discover how to “Resist the lies of the devil by walking in the promises.”

Before we look at the promises let’s look at the lies of the devil that’s causing so much destruction to humanity. The first lie is that the blight of sin can never be truly erased. All the horrible things you ever did in the past or were a witness too will be with you for the rest of your life. No matter how hard you try to move on from the old life it will always be there to pull you down causing you untold heartache. This lie has led many into a life of drug addiction, endless counseling or worst yet suicide. The second lie is likened unto it by telling the population that God does not have the answers to your problems because the Bible is not sufficient for the modern age. They say, “A modern age needs modern solutions, discounting the fact that Jesus Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.” As our Creator He knows more about us and our needs than anyone else. Finally, the third big lie of the devil is that humans are weak and sinful, so it would be impossible for them to participate in the divine nature. This idea would be totally foreign to a godless world allowing this lie to take root among the pagans. These three big lies along with many others from the devil has kept the biggest part of humanity in bondage. Furthermore, this bondage is increasing daily. Of course, we should know that Satan’s desire is to enslave the entire human race before Christ returns. Are you a prisoner or have you been set free?

If you want to break free from this bondage, then we need to learn how to walk in God’s great and precious promises. The first is found in the Bible, let’s read it together II Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Of course, this promise is only available to the new creation. The person who has faith believing that God will make him or her into a new creation. Logic dictates that a new creation cannot have any of the old creature still existing in the new. Although God will take the rest of your life here on the planet growing you from one degree of glory to another, it does not negate the fact that the old life, past tense, has passed away. Through faith you have been forgiven and your past sins are never to be remembered again by God. This new creation has the heart of stone replaced with a heart of flesh where everything changes (See Ezekiel 11:19). Your likes and dislikes change. You are changed from the inside out. Quite differently from the world that just wants to change the outside through behavior modification. Your whole attitude about life and others completely change. If it were not for your familiar face even your closest friends would no longer recognize you. Unless you plan on calling God a liar then we must believe this truth and walk in this promise. We must resist the lies of the devil.

Remember, the second lie of the devil is that God does not give us everything we need for life and godliness. So, what is God’s promise? Let’s look in the Bible together, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 2:3). Through the knowledge of Him. The more we learn about Christ through the indwelling Spirit the more we learn how to live a righteous life in an unrighteous world. In fact, it is the indwelling Spirit’s job to lead us into all truth (See John 16:13). To bring to our memories all that Christ taught when He walked upon the earth. Of course, this promise will do you little good if you don’t believe it. On the other hand, if you do believe in this promise then you will spend all the time necessary researching the Bible for the answers that’s applicable for every age, including the modern age. You will spend enough time listening to the Spirit allowing Him to either lead you to the appropriate Scripture or speaking directly to your spirit, keeping in mind that His words will never nullify the Bible. Finally, you will receive counsel from other believers who are walking in this promise. Unless you plan on calling God a liar then we must believe this truth and walk in this promise. We must resist the lies of the devil.

Remember, the third lie of the devil says that as weak sinful human beings we are unable to participate in the divine nature. So, what is God’s promise. Let’s look at the sufficient Word of God, the Bible. “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (II Peter 1:4). By these promises; believing in and walking in them will allow us to actually participate in the divine nature. Praise God. By the time we get to walking in the divine nature our past life is just a distant memory. You have been growing spiritually by putting off the old life and putting on the new life of righteousness becoming every day more like your risen LORD Jesus Christ. You have been walking in the Spirit moving you further away from the world’s counsel and closer to only listening to God’s Holy Counsel. Now you are truly seeing things differently as you begin to enjoy the tremendous blessing of participating in the divine nature. To do so changes your priorities, changes your longings and your desires. You won’t remember the exact time it happened, but you know that your heart is so much more tender than ever before. You feel as though you can reach up and touch the face of God. Unless you plan on calling God a liar then we must believe this truth and walk in this promise. We must resist the lies of the devil.

When we believe and walk in the promises of God then you will no longer suffer as the world suffers. You will no longer be held in bondage to your old sin nature but set free to live a new life in Christ. You will with God’s help and the temporary help of a qualified medical professional be able to stop your addiction. All your emotional and psychological problems of your old life will eventually fade away with the help of the indwelling Spirit and other qualified believers that are walking in the same promises. All your previous thoughts of suicide will also pass away as you walk in the new life learning how to turn everything over to the risen Lord and learning how to listen to His counsel alone. The Church should be the lighthouse to a lost and dying world by giving them hope of a new life free from all the pain and suffering of the past life. Dear friend, it’s not too late to pass this message onto your family and friends. It’s not too late to ask Jesus Christ to come into their lives, forgiving them of their past sins and making them into a new creation where they too can participate in the divine nature. Stop listening to the lies of the devil and start by listening to God’s truth.
