And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

 

Beloved, there is something unique that you must know of God our loving Father in heaven.
In fact without any controversy, He is reputed to be teachers of teachers. See what the scriptures says about Him.
1. He alone teacheth His saints to profit like no other.

Isa 48:17 — Isa 48:18  Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

2. Apart from our Lord Jesus Christ and the blessed Holy Spirit,  who  also teaches as He does,  no one else can teach like HIm.

Job 36:22  Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?

3. Because, His passion, is to see you live with Him in eternity, He endeavor and commit Himself to teach His saints His ways.

Psalms 25:12  What man is he that feareth the Lord?  him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

It is not surprising also to discover that our gracious and glorious Redeemer was described as the teacher come from God.

Jn 3:1 — Jn 3:2  There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
 In the same token the foremost ministry of the blessed Holy Spirit, who Himself will be returning back to heaven, during the dawning rapture,  since He came in majesty upon His own people, on the day of Pentecost.
He teaches His saints and you in particular all things that shall make you to be fulfilled here and rapture ready hereafter.

Jn 14:26  But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

As you have discovered the triune God to be teachers of highest repute.
There singular  and utmost desire is to see you in particular to be totally yielded to the teachings of God’s unfailing unchanging eternal infallible words in the Bible and then and then make yourself available to be used to teach all in your world of influence the same teachings, you have been taught.
 

2 Timothy 2:2  And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall  be able to teach others also.

 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
 
Beloved, it was not surprising then, that after His glorious visitation to Israel on Mount Sinai, He called Moses up to Him, to prepare Him to do what was uppermost in His mind concerning His saints of all ages, especially you. See it.

Exodus 24:12  And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

The triune God utmost desire is to see the saints of all ages and you to be so taught the ways of God perfectly for their earthly and eternal well-being.
May the Lord give you grace to humble yourself to be taught by God through His appointed ministers for your earthly and eternal well-being in Jesus name.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

Psa 25:8 — Psa 25:9  Good and upright is the Lord:  therefore  will he teach sinners in the way.  The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.

 It was praiseworthy that Moses did not fail  God.
He received the laws and statues and committed himself to teaching all that the Lord gave him to teach, not part of them.

Deu 4:5 — Deu 4:6  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Deu 4:14  And the Lord commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
Because of the faithfulness of Moses, other leaders that were raised by God after him also commited  themselves to teach the people of God the entirety of His words.

Lev 10:11  And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

1Sa 12:23  Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you: but I will teach you the good and the right way:

Ezra 7:10  For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.

Isa 2:3  And many people shall go and say,Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,to the house of the God of Jacob;and he will teach us of his ways,and we will walk in his paths:for out of Zion shall go forth the law,and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

Ezk 44:23  And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
Beloved, as it shall please the good Lord to expose you to the teachings of His entire words as He instructed,  endeavor to  teach same to every one in your world of influence, till Christ comes.
His grace Shall be sufficient for you in particular in Jesus name.
There is something that is true but might be difficult for you to believe.
Whatever you might find beneficial in any assembly, if biblical teachings are not there. God also is not there.
Because of the high premium our loving Father in heaven places on teaching His saints, His ways and His words, He makes His presence available only where biblical teachings are being done. See it yourself.

2 Chronicles 15:3  Now for a long season Israel hath been without the true God, and without a teaching priest, and without law.

The real Israel or Israel of God, which  you belong, shall always lack God’s presence where biblical teachings are not available. Don’t ever forget this.

Gal 6:16  And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
 For believers of all ages and you not to lack the presence of God in any assembly, He gave them the panacea for sustaining His presence. See it.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

In addition to this, He also reveals to them through His own exemplary lifestyle, how their teaching services and yours  can be rewarding.  See it.

Acts 1:1.  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

He did not only teach the entirety of the the word. He also lived it and gave commandment that His followers of all ages and you should do likewise. See it.

Mat 5:19  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
The  Bible is filled with instances of His teachings lifestyle during His earthly ministry. See some of them.

Matthew 11:1  And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.

Mat 5:2  And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,

Mat 7:29  For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Mat 13:54  And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?

Mar 2:13  And he went forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.

Mar 6:2  And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands

Mar 6:34  And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.

Jn 8:2  And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
It was very interesting to know that Bible days believers having seen this worthwhile example, they did likewise.
May you also receive grace to do likewise in Jesus name.

Act 5:42  And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

Act 5:21  And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.

Act 11:26  And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Act 14:21  And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,

Act 20:20  And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publicly, and from house to house,

Tit 2:4 — Tit 2:5  That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Eph 4:17 — Eph 4:31  This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.  Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
  Beloved, there was something the Bible days believers never gave room for, having heard several warnings from Jesus and the blessed Holy Spirit about false teachers and merchandise motivational speakers.
They never gave room for anyone to teach false doctrines to the believers. See it.

1Ti 1:3  As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine,

Tit 1:9  Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

This is what you also should endeavor to do.
This was  because our Lord from glory rebuked sharply ministers that allowed  false teachers to teach false doctrines that He hated with passion. See then.

Rev 2:18 — Rev 2:20  And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Rev 2:12 — Rev 2:16  And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth. But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
  The blessed Holy Spirit also seriously warned believers and ministers of God to avoid and never give room to philosophers  or merchandise motivational speakers in the church.

Col 2:6 — Col 2:10  As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

2Pe 2:1 — 2Pe 2:3   But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

 

This becomes necessary because, these false teachers or merchandise motivational speakers don’t have the light of Christ in them and also because they would hinder the flow of eternity defining truth from God’s people.
  You must not give room to them at all . See what the scriptures says.
1. They lacked the light of Christ’s eternal truth.

Isaiah 8:20  To the law and to the testimony:  if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

 
2. They hinder wholesome God’s  truth from God’s people, teaching fables and their deceptive dreams.
 

Jer 23:21 — Jer 23:32 I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings. Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord. I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed. How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart; Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord. Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbour. Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues, and say, He saith. Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the Lord, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the Lord.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12
3. Don’t give room to them to avoid partaking in  their sins.

2Jo 1:8 — 2Jo 1:11  Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

It is very unfortunate that today’s professors of religion globally have fallen into the snare of satan’s devices through which they shall be hindered from partaking in the dawning rapture or living with God eternally.  This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.
They prefer to listen to or attend the assemblies of these false teachers and merchandise motivational speakers, because of the state of their hearts.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

Jeremiah 5:31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

Luk 16:15  And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

2Ti 4:3 — 2Ti 4:4  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

The Bible reveals the reasons for this despicable lifestyle, are  because they are lovers of themselves and pleasures. They are also reprobate.
This is the reason why, we shall not see them in heaven and they shall not partake of the dawning rapture.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

2Ti 3:1 — 2Ti 3:5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Titus 1:16   They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

But then as for you, because you shall be part of the imminent rapture and receive rewards from Christ , endeavor to receive the entirety of the word of God in the Bible.
Be committed to doing them and teaching same to people in your world of influence.
Your unsaved spouse ,children , parents, siblings close and extended family members neighbors and colleagues at work etc.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Exodus 24:7  And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient.

The grace of God shall avail for you in particular in Jesus name.

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

And the Lord said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee law that thou mayest teach them – Exodus 24:12

And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

Beloved, as you see the lifestyle of  the worldlings globally and same for  multitude of nominal churchgoers globally too, you will discover their is no iota of the fear of God in them.
Jesus Christ our Lord and savior who loved you in particular, so dearly, gave His church, one instruction that is very very important for your well being here and hereafter.  See it.

Luk 12:4 — Luk 12:5  And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him

  Beloved, I am persuaded you are aware that God in heaven,our gracious Father is the best thing that can happen to any believer.
This is because, it  is not an exaggeration. God of heaven and your Father, is a very very good God
And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

See what He said.

Jeremiah 5:22  Fear ye not me? saith the Lord: will ye not tremble at my presence, which have placed the sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass it: and though the waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not prevail; though they roar, yet can they not pass over it?

The blessed Holy Spirit that is so acquainted with God from eternity past gave the believers of all ages and you, one eternity defining exhortation. See it.

Heb 12:28  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

All of these admonitions are in the scriptures and globally unbelievers and nominal churchgoers, have no fear of God in them at all.
And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

Beloved, with so much pains and anguish in my heart, I think you too night nor fear God. But then if you are, praise God.
  You wonder why I think so?  It is because, vast majority of people all over the world inside and outside the church, receive in details and strictly live by the scientists instructions on things to do to avoid Corona Virus .
But these same people who should exclude you even though I am not sure , take with levity instructions from our loving and gracious Redeemer what to do to avoid damnation in hell or missing the dawning rapture.
And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

Beloved, why do you take with loose hands where your precious undying soul shall spend eternity?

 Pause  and sincerely examine yourself, do you attach utmost importance to things to do, to prepare you for the imminent rapture as you do to avoiding the Corona Viirus plague?

2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Come to think of it, do you think you really fear God? If you response is affirmative yes. Prove it ?
There is a lifestyle our Father in heaven loves and demand from everyone, including you, calling Him Father. See the two virtues.
Prompt and wholehearted obedience.
And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

Psa 119:60  I made haste, and delayed notto keep thy commandments.

Our Lord Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry was an epitome of exemplary lifestyle on this. See what the scriptures says about Him.

Phi 2:5 — Phi 2:8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Heb 5:7 — Heb 5:8 Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

God your loving Father in heaven will appreciate and reward here and hereafter, anyone who follow the exemplary lifestyle of Jesus in biblical obedience.
In the same token, He will disinherit and recompense here and hereafter anyone inside or outside the church, who render either partial or outright disobedience to Him. Don’t ever ever forget this.

1 Sa 15:22 — 1Sa 15:23 And Samuel said, Hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

2Ki 17:14 — 2Ki 17:20 Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the Lord their God. And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them; and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them. And they left all the commandments of the Lord their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal. And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger. Therefore the Lord was very angry with Israel, and removed them out of his sight: there was none left but the tribe of Judah only. Also Judah kept not the commandments of the Lord their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made. And the Lord rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight.

And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

Beloved having seen the pros and cons of meeting the demands of God, what does the Bible says you should do?  See it.

Exodus 24:7  And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient

Exodus 24:3  And Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the Lord hath said will we do.

Matthew 4:4  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.

And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

Our Lord Jesus Christ demanded the ministers in His universal church to teach the total Word of God in the Bible as Moses read the entirety of the commandments of God to Israel.
 As it is mandatory for the ministers to teach the entire word , so also it is compulsion for all believers to be receptive and obedient to the words.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Act 20:26 — Act 20:27  Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God.

And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

 

 Why is it important for both  the ministers and believers to  abide by the entirety of the word of God?
1. It guarantees their perfection which is a very important requisite to living in eternity with God or partaking in the dawning rapture.

2Ti 3:16 — 2Ti 3:17  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2. Any word rejected today shall judge and damn the believer at eternity and also hinder the person from partaking in the imminent rapture.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 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.

3. Living by the entirety of the word makes you a wise person. Doing otherwise makes the person a foolish person and destined to be damned. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Mat 7:24 — Mat 7:27  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

4. Living by the entirety of the word according to our Lord Jesus Christ, guarantees your freedom from partaking from the imminent great tribulation that shall take place Immediately after the dawning rapture.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Now because you are going to be wise and enjoy the enviable and ceaseless benefits of obeying the entirety of the word of God here and hereafter, see what you should be doing till Christ comes.
And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7
1. Obey God and His commandments in the Bible.

Jer 7:23 — Jer 7:24  But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.

2. Be Determined to go back to the old time religion  and remain there till Christ comes

Jeremiah 6:16  Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

Gods grace shall avail for you to do so in Jesus name.
And he took the book of the covenant, and read it: and they said, All that the Lord hath said will we do, and be obedient. – Exodus 24:7

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 29, 2020 – Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil – Exodus 23:2 

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: - Exodus 23:2 

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 29, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Beloved,  in the  universal church of Christ all over the world. Two groups of people are always found.
The goats and the sheep.
The Lambs and the wolves.
The tares and the wheat.
 The vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor.
The pillars and the caterpillars.
The sinners and the saints and those that are walking on the strait gate and those on the broad way.
 Beloved, pause and reflect in your mind without presumption. Where do you belong?

Mat 7:13 — Mat 7:14  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2
  Remember, which ever group you belong to. Very very soon, there is going to be a great eternal divide.
 Those on the broad way shall pay great price  of eternal damnation, while those on the narrow way shall receive eternal prize for being righteous.  See what the scriptures says.

Mat 13:24 — Mat 13:30  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

Mat 25:31 — Mat 25:34  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Beloved, because Judgement shall begin within the house of God,  the vast majority of nominal churchgoers whose lifestyle are characterised with compromise and secret sins, shall be separated from few believers who are not following the multitude to do evil.

1Pe 4:17 — 1Pe 4:18  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

Exodus 23:2  Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment:

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

It is true and can be established.

Either in the old or new testaments.
Saints like Noah, Joseph, Joshua, Caleb,  Job , Daniel, Paul shall be differentiated from compromisers like the vast majority of the children of Israel, Korah, Dathan, and Abiram
 king Saul, Judas, Demas etc.
Beloved see what our Lord Jesus Christ said and make up your mind never to follow the multitude inside or outside the church to be doing evil.
Whatever is wrong according to the scriptures remains wrong. It does not matter how many or the multitude of people doing it.
Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Rev 22:11 — Rev 22:15  He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 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. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Beloved see how the scriptures reveals the lifestyle of those following the multitude inside or outside the church.

Genesis 6:12  And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Exo 32:1 — Exo 32:5  And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him. And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me. And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the Lord.

Gen 19:4 — Gen 19:5  But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

1 Samuel 15:9  But Saul and the people spared Agag, and the best of the sheep, and of the oxen, and of the fatlings, and the lambs, and all that was good, and would not utterly destroy them: but every thing that was vile and refuse, that they destroyed utterly.

Matthew 27:24  When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

Romans 1:32  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

In the same token, see what characterise the lifestyle of the righteous.

Ezekiel 14:14  Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God.

Noah  different.

Genesis 7:1  And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Joshua and Caleb different

Num 14:1 — Num 14:10  And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night. And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness! And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt? And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt. Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes: And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land. If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey. Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not. But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the Lord appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Joshua different.

Joshua 24:15  And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

Job different.

Job 31:34  Did I fear a great multitude, or did the contempt of families terrify me, that I kept silence, and went not out of the door?

Job 1:1  There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.

Pro 1:10 — Pro 1:11  My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not. If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

Proverbs 1:15  My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path:

Proverbs 4:14  Enter not into the path of the wicked,and go not in the way of evil men.

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Joseph the counselor.

Luk 23:50 — Luk 23:51  And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus

Jn 7:50 — Jn 7:51  Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,) Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

Paul refused to give bribe

Act 24:26 — Act 24:27  He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him. But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

1 Corinthians 9:27  But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Joseph

Genesis 39:9  There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

Daniel.

Daniel 1:10  And the prince of the eunuchs said unto Daniel, I fear my lord the king, who hath appointed your meat and your drink: for why should he see your faces worse liking than the children which are of your sort? then shall ye make me endanger my head to the king.

Jesus our Lord.

John 8:29  And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Beloved sooner very soon, even though both the righteous and the unrighteous  are together in the visible church today, Jesus Christ our Lord on the day of the dawning rapture shall separate them.

The righteous shall be raptured. The unrighteous shall go through the great tribulation. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.
Because this shall be so, why don’t you sincerely examine yourself now?
See what our Lord says.
Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

2 Chronicles 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Isa 55:6 — Isa 55:7  Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:  Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

1Jo 1:6 — 1Jo 1:10 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.  If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in u

Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

 

Beloved are you really concerned about your precious undying soul?

Are you really ready for the imminent rapture?
See what is happening all over the world ?
See how Corona Viirus  is ravaging and destroying the lives of people.
Are you really among the wise virgins?
Have you bought now everything that shall make you ready should our Lord Jesus Christ comes now?

Mat 25:1 — Mat 25:13  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Luk 21:31 — Luk 21:36  So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

May the good Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: – Exodus 23:2

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 28, 2020 – And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thee – Exodus 23:25-26

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee - Exodus 23:25-26

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 28, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil. – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Beloved, my earnest prayer for you is that you in particular shall be among raptured saints, when the dawning rapture takes place.  It shall be so in Jesus name.
  But then because this shall be so, you must commit yourself totally from now on to rendering  acceptable services  to  our Lord Jesus Christ untill He comes.
This becomes necessary because, immediately after meeting our Lord Jesus Christ in the air, He himself shall lead us straight to the venue for the event below. See it.

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:9  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26
However at this venue the only thing that shall make you joyful during the marriage supper of the Lamb and for all eternity, is what you do for Christ, wholeheartedly now.
Some brethren that must not include you shall be onlookers all through the event , because they failed to render desirable wholehearted service to our Lord on this side of heaven.
The marriage supper of the Lamb is the forum where  our Lord Jesus Christ, shall reward your faithful service.
The question is, are you doing anything for Jesus now?
No doubt your response should be affirmative yes.
But if it no, you are not doing well. Repent and engage yourself in doing something to advance the kingdom of Christ, now.
The reason for this is because you are not doing it in vain. There are rewards for you here and hereafter .
And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

Hebrews 6:10  For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister..

1 Corinthians 15:58  Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Col 3:23 — Col 3:24  And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Beloved, serving Jesus Christ our Lord and savior is not optional but compulsory.

Those who fail to serve Him are living in outright disobedience and there hands are full of blood.
So we shall not see them in heaven. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name. See what the Bible says.

Ezk 3:17 — Ezk 3:20  Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.  Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Beloved, see rewards  those that served Christ shall receive here on earth now and then  during the marriage supper of the Lamb.

On earth.
Lifetime of happiness, good health and long life.

Exo 23:25 — Exo 23:26  And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.

 
Desired physical, financial aid material prosperity.
 

Job 36:11  If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

 

Psalms 35:27  Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

Divine favour.

Psa 102:13 — Psa 102:14  Thou  shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.  For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

During the marriage supper.

Incorruptible rewards.

1 Peter 1:4  To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,

Crown of righteousness.

2Ti 4:6 — 2Ti 4:8  For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Crown of glory.

1Pe 5:1 — 1Pe 5:4  The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away. 

 
Shinning as stars forever.
 

Daniel 12:3  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Reigning over cities during the millennium.

Luk 19:16 — Luk 19:17  Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds. And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Beloved, because all of these shall be yours,. See the kind of services you should wholeheartedly render for Christ, till He comes.

1. Preaching the gospel.

Act 8:4 — Act 8:5  Therefore they that were scattered abroad went every where preaching the word. Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them.

2.Pulling people in your world of influence out of fire of hell.

Jud 1:22 — Jud 1:23  And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.

3. Restoring backsliders.

Jam 5:19 — Jam 5:20  Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.

4. Helping sincere unlearned saints  to be more grounded in the wholesome truth of the scriptures.

Act 18:24 — Act 18:28  And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus. This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John. And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly. And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace: For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

Act 8:27 — Act 8:38  And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship, Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet. Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot. And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

5. Turning sinners to biblical righteousness.

Daniel 12:3  And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

6. Interceeding for believers to be edified and backsliding believers to be restored.

Colossians 4:12  Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Gal 4:19  My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you,

7. Following up on believers to establish them more in the faith.

Act 11:25 — Act 11:26  Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Acts 15:36  And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they do.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Beloved see what will happen to sinners in your world of influence if you failed to serve the Lord.

1. The gospel shall not be preached and the kingdom of Christ on earth shall not advanced.

Matthew 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

2. All the sinners in your world of influence shall not know Christ and shall be damned.

Rom 10:13 — Rom 10:15  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

3. Because of your failure God will destroy all the people in your world of influence.

Ezk 22:30 — Ezk 22:31  And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord God.

4. You will waste the talent and gift Jesus  gave you to serve Him and be damned yourself in disobedience. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

Luke 19:13  And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Because all of the above must not happen, arise now and follow the exemplary lifestyle of Jesus our Lord , during His earthly ministry.  It is expected of believers of all ages and you in particular to follow His example.  See it.

Luke 19:10  For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

John 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

 

1 Peter 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

 

Always remember up till now, the Lord is looking for genuine, submissive labourers in His vineyard. Will He find you?

Mat 9:37 — Mat 9:38  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

I am persuaded you too shall respond like Isaiah and you shall be blessed here and hereafter in Jesus name.

Isaiah 6:8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee – Exodus 23:25-26

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 27, 2020 – sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes – Exodus 19:10-11

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. - Exodus 19:10-11

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 27, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day the Lord will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai. – Exodus 19:10-11

 

Beloved, there is one very very important question that you must plead with the blessed Holy Spirit to help you discover.
 This discovery must be with utmost certainty and thoroughness.
This becomes necessary because of the indescribable pains our Lord goes through always, because of the  multitude of the so called professing  ministers and believers from the universal church globally who  are thronging to hell daily.
 The singular reason for this is not far fetched.
Despite their profession of faith  and tireless labour, they are not known in heaven to either  our loving  Father in heaven. They are not known to Jesus our Lord and His holy angels
See what this scriptures says. I want you to ponder on it sincerely and seriously, so that , the eternal misfortune of all these people who have gone to hell from the global church, might not happen to you too. It shall not in Jesus name..

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
Beloved, do you see the response of our merciful Redeemer to these people from His church globally. I never know you.
Ask yourself again and again. With  your profession of faith and labour and your investment to His kingdom. Does He know you?
You must not get to the other side of heaven or when the dawning rapture has taken place, before you in particular discover the true status of your association and relationship with our Lord.
  Beloved, the simple reason why these painful and shameful misfortune happen to these people from the universal church of Christ, globally is their willful disposition to the most important will of God.
Our Lord lay emphasis on doing the will of His Father.
Always remember this.  Don’t ever ever forget.  There is one will of God you must embrace and live the lifestyle for a lifetime. See it.

1Th 4:3 — 1Th 4:4  For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

Beloved, when you commit yourself to embrace and live this particular will of God as a lifestyle. Every other wills of God in the Bible, becomes seamless.
  It is because of this that made our loving Father in heaven to lay more emphasis on it from time immemorial. See it.

Lev 11:44  For I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Lev 20:7 — Lev 20:8  Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
Beloved, check the Bible either in the old or new testaments, you will discover, when something supernatural is set to happen from heaven, God’s people are called to sanctify themselves. See the following instances.
  1. When the Lord wanted to visit Israel at Sinai. They were told to sanctify themselves.

Exo 19:10 — Exo 19:11  And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day the Lord will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.

2. When the Lord was set to open River Jordan for Israel to pass. He called them to sanctify themselves.

Jos 3:5  And Joshua said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the Lord will do wonders among you.

When the blessed Holy Spirit was to come upon the disciples in the upper room.
 The  prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ for them to be sanctifiied .

John 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

  And  their own continual prayers for ten days none stop for themselves,  sanctifiied them.
This became evidenced and  noticeable by the oneness in their midst, which was a manifestation of sanctifiied lives.

Act 2:1 — Act 2:4  And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
  Beloved, in the same token, when heavens is going to open for the saints of God to be caught up and meet our Lord in the air, only the sanctifiied shall be raptured.
 Jesus Christ our Lord and the blessed Holy Spirit said so. See them.
Jesus.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

Blessed Holy Spirit.

1 Thessalonians 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
  Beloved for you to be biblically sanctifiied, adequate provision have been made and are placed at your disposal.
1. God the Father in heaven can sanctify you.

Lev 20:7 — Lev 20:8  Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you.

2. Jesus our Lord can sanctify you through His precious blood or eternal words.

Hebrews 13:12  Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

John 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

3.  The blessed Holy Spirit can sanctify you.

Romans 15:16  That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Beloved, i praise God for you, because, I am persuaded you might have been sanctifiied.
But then let us examine the lifestyle of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was the epitome of biblical sanctification, during His earthly ministry.
 See what He said. He lived a sanctifiied lifestyle during His earthly ministry, for believers of all ages and you in particular, to reproduce.

John 17:19  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
1. Biblical sanctification produces true humility. See our Lord. He came to His subject,  His own creation to be baptized. See Him washing the disciples feet.

Mat 3:13 — Mat 3:15   Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.

Jn 13:1 — Jn 13:5  Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end. And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him; Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
2. Biblical sanctification enables and empowers you to serve the Lord wholeheartedly and in accordance to His perfect will.

Luk 2:49  And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?

John 4:34  Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.

John 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

John 17:4  I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
3. Biblical sanctification helps you to willingly submit to God’s will without being compelled.

Luk 22:41 — Luk 22:42  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

John 6:38  For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

John 8:28  Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

John 8:29  And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
4. Biblical sanctification enables you to be free from inward and outward sins.

Jn 8:46  Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
5. Biblical sanctification enables you to forgive your foes and even help them with ease.

Luk 22:47 — Luk 22:51  And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him. But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?   And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear. And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.

Luke 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

1 Peter 2:23  Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
6. Biblical sanctification enables you to do what you are teaching those in your world of influence and  members of your church.

Acts 1:1  The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
7, Biblical sanctification enables you to render prompt and wholehearted obedience to God.

Phi 2:5 — Phi 2:8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Heb 5:7 — Heb 5:8  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
All of these Jesus lived as a lifestyle for you to reproduce.

1 Peter 2:21  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

John 17:19  And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
Remember, only the sanctifiied shall partake in the dawning rapture or have access to heaven.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

You can do all things through Christ who will strengthen and ensure you don’t fall or fail.

Philippians 4:13  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Jude 1:24  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes. – Exodus 19:10-11
The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 26, 2020 – if ye will obey my voice, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me – Exodus 19:5-6

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people - Exodus 19:5-6

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 26, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel – Exodus 19:5-6

 

Beloved, if there is any resolution you need to make and determinedly do , by the grace of God, it is to be  and remain  to be  a child of God in deed .
The world around you might frown, mock , disdain your resolute piousness to God. But then seek for more of His grace to sustain this paternal  relationship between you and your dear  loving and gracious heavenly Father.
This becomes necessary because God’s love for His children is indescribable, inexplanable and unfathomable. See how the scriptures describe it.

Zephaniah 3:17  The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.

Isaiah 62:5  For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
This paternal or child father relationship with God if sustained as a lifestyle for a lifetime, makes you a beneficiary of His eternal inheritances. This shall be your portion in Jesus name.

Mal 3:17   And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Rev 21:3 — Rev 21:4  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Beloved, no doubt this is your utmost desire and by His grace you in particular shall attain it in Jesus name.
  For you to realize this noble and worthwhile dream, there is just one thing you must do and be doing till Jesus comes.
Make yourself a peculiar treasure to God. Infact this is one  and most unchanging aspiration of God from every one professing religion. See it.

Exo 19:5 — Exo 19:6  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

  Beloved, see how several other scriptures affirmed this aspiration of God. You must endeavor to attain it for your earthly and eternal well-being.

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Deuteronomy 7:6  For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

Deuteronomy 14:2  For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

Deu 26:18 — Deu 26:19  And the Lord hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.

1 Kings 8:53  For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord God.

Psalms 135:4  For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.

 

Isaiah 41:8  But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.

Isaiah 62:3  Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Beloved for you to become peculiar to God, a steep price was paid by Christ to purchase you.
To be peculiar means to be purchased by a great price. See it.

Titus 2:14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Exodus 15:16  Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Ephesians 1:14  Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

Rev 1:5 — Rev 1:6  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Revelation 5:9  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

  Now  that you have known the steep price of purchasing you before you became a peculiar treasure.
Also now that you have come to understand the noble prize of eternal inheritances awaiting you after the dawning rapture, what are you going to do?
Will you strive with all your might to ensure you possess this worthwhile eternal inheritances or will you allow it to slip of your hands?  God forbid.
   See those who will inherit the heritages of peculiar treasures.

Matthew 24:31  And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Mal 3:17   And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Mat 25:31 — Mat 25:34  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Are you one of His sheep?  What does it take to be His sheep?

Jn 10:27 — Jn 10:28  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.

Are you hearing His voice? What is His voice?

Deu 28:1 — Deu 28:2  And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.

Exodus 19:5  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

Exodus 15:26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Beloved, His voice is His unfailing, unchanging, eternal, infallible words in the Bible. See some of them and check up whether you in particular are  hearing His voice or not?
 Remember, don’t ever forget this. It is this words according to our Lord, that will determine where you in particular shall spend eternity.

Mat 7:21 — Mat 7:23  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Jn 12:46 — Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 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.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
So patiently and gently go through these His voices and check up without any presumption, whether you are hearing them or not, having discovered  the consequences of not hearing anyone of them.

2 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.

Are you a new creature? Has your language, your attitude, your interaction with others, your dressing, have you really changed and now conform and transformed into doing God’s perfect will?

Exodus 32:33  And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

Are you really free from little foxes and besetting sins and compromise that are capable of removing your name from the book of life?

Rom 12:1 — Rom 12:2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Are you presenting your bodies a living sacrifice daily to God or you use it doing defiling things capable of hindering your readiness for the dawning rapture or having access to heaven?

Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Are you overcoming sin, self, satan, worldliness on a daily basis?

2Co 5:14 — 2Co 5:15  For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

Are you living now for Christ or you are still insatiably pursing ephemeral at all cost, even at the express of your precious undying soul?

Mat 5:27 — Mat 5:30  Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Are you free from immorality, uncleanness, masturbation, inordinate affections and lust in the heart?

Philippians 2:15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

Are you living a blameless and harmless lifestyle or you are engaged in the same rat race and perverse nature of the worldings?

Hebrews 12:14  Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Are you following peace with all men, friends and foes?  Are you walking in biblical holiness and righteousness on the narrow road that leads to heaven?

Luk 19:8 — Luk 19:9  And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold. And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

Have you done your restitutions?  Restore stollen or ill-gotten wealth it any thing you deceitfully acquired, written lies or spoken lies? How about your daily adultery with the unlawful spouse in your house, when your lawful spouse is still alive?

1Jo 2:15 — 1Jo 2:17  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Are you free from worldliness and worldly dressing? Are you free from worldly association and doing your business the way of the world?

Rev 22:18 — Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Are you still picking and choosing what to believe and what to obey in the Bible, when you know the consequences of doing so According to this passage?

2Pe 2:20 — 2Pe 2:22  For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 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. 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.

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6
Have you backslided like Demas and Judas? Are you now looking back like Lots wife?  What you were saved from before, you are going back to them?

Isa 33:15 — Isa 33:17  He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; He shall dwell on high:his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks:bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Do you give bribe and receive bribe?  Are  your hands free from blood shed of abortion,?

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

How prepare are you to escape the great tribulation? Do you live by the entirety of the scriptures?
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6

 

2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

Beloved these are some of the voices of the Lord.  Examine yourself, whether you are obeying them.

Exodus 19:5  Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people – Exodus 19:5-6

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 25, 2020 – Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters - Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb - Exodus 17:6

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 25, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. – Exodus 17:6

 

Beloved, majority of the people in the universal church of Christ globally are nominal churchgoers..
Praise God you are not.
It is good if a person professing to be a believer is  not forsaking the assembly, but this alone  does not make whoever a Christian.
Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6

Heb 10:25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

But then a Bible based believer in any assembly is the person that has heeded this glorious and gracious call to salvation.
 

Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Matthew 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6
 
Beloved, check up sincerely with the blessed Holy Spirit. Have you in particular heeded this call and now become born again with Bible evidence of becoming a new creature?

2 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.

I am persuaded,  that this is your present experience. Glory to God.
However,. If it is not. Do the needful now. Tomorrow might be too late.
  But then because this is your present estate. See what you in particular is called into.
1. Called into glory.

2 Peter 1:3  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:

2. Called to be glorified.

Rom 8:30  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Because you in particular shall be glorified, see what your Redeemer and also your loving Father in heaven had prepared for you.

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3.  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6 

Heb 11:14 — Heb 11:16  For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

However,  for  you in particular to access the prepared place for your everlasting glorification, Jesus must be smitten.
He must be smitten because all without exception  and that includes you have sinned and lost the glory of God.

Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

The price for remitting this lost glory is the smitten of Christ. See it.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

See it prophesied.
Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6

Genesis 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Isa 53:3 — Isa 53:12  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.  And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death ;because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.  Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because  he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

 

Lam 1:12  Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and seeif there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me,wherewith the Lord hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger.

See a foretaste of it’s fulfilment.

Exodus 17:6  Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel

 
You wonder why God the Father told Moses to smite the Rock for the children of Israel to drink water?
You recount the selection of a lamb without blemish which bone must not be broken was a pointer to what our Lord  went through at Calvary, during His earthly ministry.
So also was the smitten  of the Rock by Moses.
Because only by the smitten of Jesus will the access to glory be attained by believers of all ages and that includes you.
The blessed Holy Spirit revealed that the smitten Rock was Christ. See it.
Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6

1 Corinthians 10:4  And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

Now see Him smitten for no other reason apart from taking believers and you in particular to glory.

John 19:37  And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

Heb 2:9 — Heb 2:10 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

The scriptures says God will give grace through which you access glory.
GRACE:
God’s riches, righteousness, redemption, regeneration, reconciliation, remission of sins.
All  of  these  at the expense of Christ.
See it.

Psalms 84:11  For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6
Now that our Lord has been smitten for all believers, especially you.
You  must endeavor  never to miss the prepared places of glory both God the Father and Himself,  had prepared, awaiting  you in heaven.
Also   the glory  Jesus was smitten for, must not elude you and it shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
This glory is imminent and shall begin when you meet with our Lord Jesus Christ in the air,  after the dawning rapture.  See it.

Col 3:1 — Col 3:4  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 5:4  And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

Beloved, for this glory not to elude you and it shall not elude you in particular in Jesus name.
You must endeavor to meet the conditions or requisites. See them.
1. Called. 2. Chosen. 3. Faithful.

Revelation 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

By the grace of God you have already fulfilled the first one, which is biblical call to salvation. See it.

Isaiah 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Matthew 11:28  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6
So determinedly fulfill the remaining two, which are chosen and faithful.
See what you must do to be chosen.
Second condition: CHOSEN.

1 Peter 2:9  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

Come out of darkness of worldliness and unequal yoke.

Philippians 2:15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

2Co 6:14 — 2Co 6:18  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

In  addition,  to be chosen you must also  determinedly live by the entirety of His words.

Jn 6:66 — Jn 6:70  From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

The third condition: FAITHFUL.

1 Corinthians 4:2  Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Revelation 2:10  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6
God’s grace shall avail for you in particular in Jesus name.

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Remember our Lord Jesus Christ was shamefully smitten and went through unparalleled excruciating pains to pay for you to access glory.
Please let the shame and the pains, He went through not be in vain, but let it energise you to be part of the dawning rapture.
The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
Christ the Smitten Rock that brings forth living waters – Exodus 17:6

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 24, 2020 – Manna from Heaven – Exodus 16:4

Manna from Heaven - Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them - Exodus 16:4

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 24, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no. – Exodus 16:4

 

Beloved, the Bible says my people, God’s own people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Hosea 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

  But then you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free and promote you.

John 8:32  And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 Always remember every opportunity you have to obey God’s words, is set to define you for reward or recompense.
 The God of heaven is interested in proving you in particular whether you will fear Him enough and obey Him or whether your profession of having Him as your heavenly Father is empty and you will disobey Him.

Malachi 1:6  A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

 Because God is interested in checking up the status of His Fatherhood over your own life in particular, He proves you to know what you will do with His words.
God will help you in particular. As others in Bible days and even our contemporary time triumphed when they were tested. So you too shall triumph in Jesus name.

Deu 8:2 — Deu 8:3  And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
  When God was set to give Israel, special bread from heaven, He did it with a test.
It was very unfortunate that Israel failed Him woefully. You shall not fall Him in Jesus name. See it.

Exodus 16:4  Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

Exodus 16:28  And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

 Beloved, what the blessed Holy Spirit is revealing to you had been the undoing of some in the Bible  days  and they had paid dearly and even lost privileges and blessings of God.
On the other hand it had been the making of many and had brought them enviable earthly and eternal blessings too. This shall be your portion in Jesus
  Remember the Bible says you should learn from things that happened to others in the time past for your edification and we’ll being.

Romans 15:4  For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

1Co 10:11 — 1Co 10:12  Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

  Beloved see those that lost great privileges and blessings for failing the simple test of God, when they were proved. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.
Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
  1. Adam and Eve.

Gen 2:16 — Gen 2:17  And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

You remember what happened. They believed the devil and disobey the simple instructions and their losses were collosal. See it.

Gen 3:23 — Gen 3:24  Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

2.  King Saul. He and His generation would have enjoyed the kingly position over Israel, but for simple disobedience, he lost it to David.
This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

1Sa 13:9 — 1Sa 13:14  And Saul said, Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and peace offerings. And he offered the burnt offering. And it came to pass, that as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might salute him.  And Samuel said, What hast thou done? And Saul said, Because I saw that the people were scattered from me, and that thou camest not within the days appointed, and that the Philistines gathered themselves together at Michmash; Therefore said I, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication unto the Lord: I forced myself therefore, and offered a burnt offering. And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the Lord have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
However, see those who yielded to God in wholehearted and  prompt obedience.
See how they were favoured with enviable earthly and eternal blessings. This shall be your portion in Jesus name .
Abraham.

Gen 22:1 — Gen 22:3  And it came to pass after these things, that God did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: and he said, Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.  And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and saddled his ass, and took two of his young men with him, and Isaac his son, and clave the wood for the burnt offering, and rose up, and went unto the place of which God had told him.

 
Gen 22:11 — Gen 2£2:12  And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I. And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

Gen 22:15 — Gen 22:18  And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time, And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 
2. Joshua.

Joshua 5:15  And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

3. Our Lord Jesus Christ. See His exemplary lifestyle of biblical obedience to our Father in heaven.

Luk 22:41 — Luk 22:42  And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.

John 6:38  For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.

Phi 2:5 — Phi 2:8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Heb 5:7 — Heb 5:8  Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 See His earthly and eternal blessings.

Phi 2:9 — Phi 2:11  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Hebrews 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Beloved permit me with all humility to talk to you in particular.
You do not need any assumption to know whether you shall be part of the dawning rapture  or not.  You do not need a seer  or prophet to tell you, what will happen when the rapture takes place.
You will know now whether you shall be part of it or not. See what the Bible says.

 1 Kings 18:21  And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
Beloved, you need not halt between two options.  You are sure the rapture is imminent and it shall happen, suddenly.
Certainty of the imminent rapture.

1Th 4:15 — 1Th 4:17  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

The suddenness of the event.

1Co 15:51 — 1Co 15:52  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
Beloved, you are also aware that after the event, there shall be indescribable and inexplanable sufferings during the great tribulation.

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Amo 5:18 — Amo 5:20  Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
 Our Lord whom we are going to be meeting in the air, who knows the truth, through and through, gave His faithful believers, unfailing Panacea to escape the certain to happen gruesome and fearsome great tribulation.
What have you done about it.
Is it not unfortunate that many so called believers globally presently will strictly follow the instructions of the scientist not to catch Corona virus, but will do next to nothing, to do what our Lord said to avoid great tribulation.
It will be painfully unfortunate, if you in particular is cut in this web also.
See the panacea Jesus gave to avoid the great tribulation.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4
You know you have done nothing about what Jesus said.
It will take obeying the entirety of the scriptures from now till Christ comes to partake in the dawning rapture.
See yourself, you are  still languishing in worldliness.
Your restitutions ,you have not done them.
You are still in that assembly where your eternal well-being is not guaranteed.
The second spouse is still in your house, you are living in daily adultery.
You are still busy pursuing ephemeral that you shall not have access to during the great tribulation except you receive the mark of the Antichrist.
You are still giving bribe and receiving bribe.
Which way are you better than Adam or king Saul?
Remember the blessed Holy Spirit had warned you over and over.  May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus.
Why will you be buying what you could buy today with the grace of Christ?
Why will you want to buy them with your blood during the great tribulation?
I am persuaded you are going to be wise and do the sayings of Jesus.

Mat 7:24 — Mat 7:27   Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Begin to do the needful now, so we will not weep in heaven, looking for you. It shall not be so in Jesus name.
Manna from Heaven – Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; that I may prove them – Exodus 16:4

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 23, 2020 – The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18 

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever - Exodus 15:18 | And he shall reign over the house of Jacob; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. - Luke 1:33 

Knowing JESUS Daily Devotional | March 23, 2020 | Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional

 

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18

 

Beloved is it not surprising that both in  the church world and among  the worldlings without Christ, there exist   two  distinct  groups of people.
1. Those that are following Christ and those that are fighting with Him.
2.  Those that are wholeheartedly worshipping Him and those that are willfully  warring with Him.
These two groups exists in the universal church of Christ and the   reprobate  worldlings.
Don’t jump to conclusions or point accusing fingers. Where do you belong?
Sincerely examine yourself.

Revelation 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
There are  facts  and truths  that  are not contestable. They are beyond the comprehension and doings of the mortals.
Jesus shall reign forever and ever. But whether He shall reign over your own life, is exclusively your decision.
But I am persuaded that He shall reign over your life, because you are already ordained to reign with Him forever. It shall be so in Jesus name.

Joshua 24:15   And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
See how the scriptures affirm  that our Lord shall reign for ever.
I earnestly pray for you in particular that His eternal and everlasting reigning shall not elude you in Jesus name.

Exodus 15:18  The Lord shall reign for ever and ever.

Luke 1:33  And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Rev 11:15 — Rev 11:17  And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

Daniel 2:44  And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

 

Daniel 4:3  How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.

Dan 7:13 — Dan 7:14  I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Daniel 7:27  And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Matthew 6:13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Hebrews 1:8  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
Beloved, as certainly and assuredly affirmed that out Lord shall reign forever, so also is your reigning with Him forever established.
However, your own reigning with Him is completely and absolutely  dependent  on  your preparedness and willingness to align with the requisites.
The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.
  See it by virtue of your biblical redemption or new birth, you are a king destined to reign and you shall reign in Jesus name.

Rev 1:5 — Rev 1:6  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Rev 5:9 — Rev 5:10  And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Rev 20:4 — Rev 20:6  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
But then see what shall make multitude in the church world globally apart from you in particular, miss out or hindered from being part of the eternal reigning of our Lord.
This shall not be your portion in Jesus name. But then examine yourself and make immediate amendments should you discover that you are presently defaulting.

John 13:13  Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.

  The blessed  Holy Spirit reveals from the scriptures of unfailing and unchanging  truth, lifestyle of those believers, where Jesus is not reigning as Lord.
  Please be sincere to examine yourself.
1. They don’t do  His words.

Luke 6:46  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?

Jer 44:16 — Jer 44:17  As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee. But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.

Ezk 33:30 — Ezk 33:33  Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not. And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18

 

2.  Saying not so Lord. If in deed Jesus is Lord over your life. You must never  ever at any time say to Him, not so Lord, but must always joyfully and willingly submit to His revealed truth from the scriptures.

Acts 10:14  But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.

Rom 10:3 — Rom 10:4  For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Jam 4:6 — Jam 4:7  But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18

 

 3. When you choose the pathway of apostate churches and you rejected old time religion of obeying the Bible. He is no more reigning in your life.

1Sa 8:4 — 1Sa 8:8  Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord. And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.

Jeremiah 6:16  Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
  4.  When you prefer to worship in the  Kings chapel because of  your itching ears. You don’t want to hear the totality of God’s unfailing unchanging eternal and infallible words of God preached, but only the ones suitable to your sensual lifestyle.

Amo 7:10 — Amo 7:13  Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words. For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land. Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there: But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king’s chapel, and it is the king’s court.

2Ti 4:3 — 2Ti 4:4  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Jeremiah 5:31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
 5.  When you determinedly follow an assembly that can not guarantee your eternal well-being, because it profits your sensual and material gains.

Luke 19:14  But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

Jn 9:24 — Jn 9:29  Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

Gal 1:13 — Gal 1:14  For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it: And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

Matthew 16:26  For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
6.  When you always do  determinedly  your permissive will and not His perfect will, even though in pretense you are asking for His guidance.

Ezk 14:3 — Ezk 14:4  Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them? Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the Lord will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;

2Th 2:10 — 2Th 2:12  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: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

How do you know if Jesus is reigning in your heart?
1. When you wholeheartedly and submissively ask from Him at times in all things, what He wants you to do.

Act 9:3 — Act 9:6   And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

Acts 2:37  Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Acts 16:30  And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

Acts 22:10  And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.

Luke 3:10  And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18
Beloved, I see you reigning with Christ in His kingdom forever. This  reigning shall soon begin in no distant future.
 But then the bucks stop with you. It is time to break your fallow ground and be prepared to meet with the Lord in the air.
May the good Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.

Hos 10:12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness,reap in mercy;break up your fallow ground:for it is time to seek the Lord,till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Amo 4:12  Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel:and because I will do this unto thee,prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.

1Th 4:15 — 1Th 4:17  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The Lord shall reign for ever and ever – Exodus 15:18

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13

 

1. Beloved is not noteworthy and encouraging for you to know that both your loving Father in heaven and your gracious Redeemer have earnest passion for bringing you in particular to themselves.
  Your Father wants to bring you to heaven, His holy habitation for you in particular to be one of His people.
See the following four different scriptures to affirm this noble passion of your loving Father in heaven.
 

Exodus 15:13  Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

 

Deu 26:15  Look down from thy holy habitation, from heaven, and bless thy people Israel, and the land which thou hast given us, as thou swarest unto our fathers, a land that floweth with milk and honey.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13

Mal 3:16 — Mal 3:18  Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another:and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

 

Rev 21:3 — Rev 21:4  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 

2.
 Apart from the noble unchanging passion of your loving Father in heaven, do you know your gracious Redeemer and Lord has earnest insatiable desire for you in particular to be with Him for all eternity.
He looks forward to getting married to you in particular during the marriage supper after the dawning rapture.
Now see all these scriptures to affirm this laudable expectation.

John 17:24  Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

Luk 22:28 — Luk 22:30  Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations. And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13

Mar 10:29 — Mar 10:30  And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:8  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

Beloved now that you have discovered  the good thoughts of both your loving Father in heaven and your gracious Redeemer towards   you.

Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13
The  onus is on you too, to reciprocate their kind gestures by meeting the biblical requisites for realising  their eternal rewarding desires.
Beloved, see what the blessed Holy Spirit says you need to do.
1. Be like Jesus.. Have His mind.

Phi 2:5 — Phi 2:8  Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Hebrews 7:26  For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

2.  Follow Him through thick and thin till He comes.

John 12:26  If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

Rev 14:4 — Rev 14:5  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13
3. Set your affections on things above.
You continually  take all your decisions from the perspective of living with Him in eternity.

Col 3:1 — Col 3:4.  If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

 
4,. Seek the place He has gone to prepare determinedly.

Jn 14:1 — Jn 14:3  Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

 

Heb 11:14 — Heb 11:16  For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13
5,. Endure every challenges set to hinder you from getting there.

Revelation 2:10  Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Rom 8:35 — Rom 8:39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13
6. Separate yourself from anyone and everyone and anything and everything, that can hinder you from getting to the habitation of the Lord.

Mar 9:43 — Mar 9:48  And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

7. Live by the entirety of His unfailing and unchanging eternal infallible words.

Rev 3:10 — Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

His grace to live godly lifestyle shall avail for you in particular in Jesus name

2 Corinthians 9:8  And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

Tit 2:11 — Tit 2:13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. – Exodus 15:13
