NOW THE SPIRIT SPEAKETH | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

September 8, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional –  NOW THE SPIRIT SPEAKETH EXPRESSLY. HE THAT HATH AN EAR LET HIM HEAR.

1Ti 4:1-2 –  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Beloved,  God  will give you in particular the  going  grace  and  grit to be steadfast to the end.  This will enable you to avoid the painful and shameful lot of the children of Israel.  More than six hundred thousand of them left Egypt,  but only  Caleb and  Joshua , the  two  got to the promised .land.

Num 14:26Num 14:33.  And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun. But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised. But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness. And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

Beloved,  this happened  to then because at the slightest opportunity when a challenge  arouse, they were willing to turn back to Egypt. See how the scriptures severally affirmed it.

Num 14:1Num 14:4.  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.

Neh 9:14Neh 9:17. And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant: And gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and promisedst them that they should go in to possess the land which thou hadst sworn to give them. But they and our fathers dealt proudly, and hardened their necks, and hearkened not to thy commandments, And refused to obey, neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks, and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage: but thou art a God ready to pardon, gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not.

Act 7:37Act 7:40. This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear. This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us: To whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and in their hearts turned back again into Egypt, Saying unto Aaron, Make us gods to go before us: for as for this Moses, which brought us out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

Exo 14:11Exo 14:12.  And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt? Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

Beloved,  this same attitude is what characterised the lifestyle of  the vast majority of believers globally.  They began well, but because of  the seemingly little challenges confronting them, they are compromising and departing from the wholesome truth,  that shall help them to make heaven.
Pause a little and sincerely examine yourself to be sure, you too are not cut up in this shameful regrettable web?  If you are not fine. But if you are, this is the time to repent to avoid eternal Flame.  It shall never be your portion in Jesus name. See what the Bible says about it.

1Ti 4:11Ti 4:2. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

Dearly  beloved,  our Lord during His earthly ministry warned Bible days believers what shall be happening at the end of time. This same Warning is for believers of all ages and you in particular.  Many things shall be happening and the carefree believers who do not have solid foundation shall be swayed. You shall not be in Jesus name. You must endeavour to be steadfast to the end.

Mat 24:4Mat 24:12. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and  be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Mat 24:23Mat 24:25. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.

The blessed Holy Spirit further strengthened this prophecy to warn believers of this ages and you to be  steadfast to the end  and  avoid it. See it.

1Ti 4:11Ti 4:2. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

See how several other scriptures affirmed it.

2Th 2:12Th 2:5.  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Ti 3:12Ti 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.

2Ti 4:12Ti 4:4. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 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.

Dearly beloved,  are you still in the faith? Do you still believe the wholesome truth of the Bible that shall guarantee your eternal well being?  The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.
Friend,  you must not be weary in your preparation and steadfastness to be ready for the dawning rapture. Your  faithful expectation shall not be caught up in Jesus name. But then,  you must avoid the shameful undoing of the vast majority of those who profess same thing, , but shall be deluded ultimately.
This shall happen to them because they have left the wholesome truth behind because of seemingly and inconsequential challenges.

1Ti 4:11Ti 4:2. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

They are not able to endure to the end. This shall not be your portion in Jesus name.

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.

Mar 13:13. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Friend see what shall characterise the lifestyle of steadfast believers that shall be ready when our Lord comes.  This is what your own lifestyle should be also.

Heb 11:13Heb 11:16. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 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.

Rev 2:25Rev 2:29. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

You must determinedly  hold  on to living by the  entirety of the scriptures till Jesus comes.

Rev 3:10Rev 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.

Receive grace to do so and continue to the end willingly in Jesus name.
