Beloved, do you know there is a remarkable difference between having acquainted experience and being wise. Experience is what you learn from painful mistakes you made in your own life.
On the other hand, being wise is what you discovered in painful and costly mistakes and misfortunes others experienced.
So because you belong to the categories of few wise believers globally, learn from the avoidable painful and shameful misfortune of your great great grand parents. Adam and Eve.
This becomes necessary because God that dealt firmly with them remains the same and unchanged.
When they were brought to that good garden. Paradise on earth. From the outset God told them, their continual stay in that good garden was conditional to their wholehearted obedience. See it yourself.

Gen 2:15 — 17   And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 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.

No doubt they became unwise, just like the vast majority of the nominal churchgoers globally today, they took for granted the liberality of out loving Father in heaven and they paid dearly for it.
They lost that good garden and more.  They lost access to the tree of life in that good garden. See it yourself.

Gen 3:22 — 24  And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: 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.

Beloved, now you become wise by learning from their avoidable shameful and painful misfortune. This is because, God will treat anyone and everyone in all generations or ages that fall a victim of what they did.
See what the Bible says in both old and new testaments about your loving Father in heaven. Please don’t ever take Him for granted.

Malachi 3:6  For I am the Lord, I change not;  therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

Rom 2:5 — 11  But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: For there is no respect of persons with God.

Our Lord Jesus Christ who knew His Father and your Father well enough, gave  all believers of all ages and you in particular, this most important warning. See it.

Luke 12:5  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, majority of today’s believers globally felt they can trample  on God’s express commandments or walk in disobedience and placate Him with sinful and unacceptable sacrifices and worship.
Please don’t join them. This is because they shall be abysmally disappointed.
1. God honours His words and His express commandments to you more than any name you called Him in sinful disobedient worship.

Psalms 138:2  I will worship toward thy holy temple,  and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth:  for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

2. God frowns at any unacceptable sacrifices, when such a person is walking in flagrant disobedience.

1Sa 15:22 — 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.

Beloved, see this exhortation that shall guarantee your own earthly and eternal wellness, as you wholeheartedly obey it. You shall ultimately have access to the tree of life that Adam and Eve were denied, when they were driven out of the garden of Eden, because of disobedience.
As you give listen ears and obey wholeheartedly God’s unchanging words in the Bible. The good Lord shall help you to be wise in Jesus name.

Revelation 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Dearly beloved, over and over during the earthly ministry of our Lord, He emphasized to His  Bible days, followers and by extension all His followers of all ages and you in particular, to give listening  ears to His sayings.
This He deliberately did as a prelude to what the blessed Holy Spirit shall be doing latter till the end of time. See it yourself.

Matthew 11:15  He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 13:9  Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 13:43  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

This He did to help believers of all ages,  especially you to give listening ears to warnings and exhortations from the blessed Holy Spirit, which will determine your earthly and eternal wellness.
This is very important because your becoming a beloved in the kingdom of God is hinged on your persuasion of the blessed Holy Spirit.

Rom 8:14 — Rom 8:16  For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

In addition to this, after the resurrection and ascension of our Lord, it is the blessed Holy Spirit that shall be unfolding the truth of your wellness in the kingdom of God to you.

John 16:13  Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

See how this was graciously done by the blessed Holy Spirit to Bible days believers at different times

Act 10:17 — 20  Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made enquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate, And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there. While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

Act 13:2 — 4  As they ministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed unto Seleucia; and from thence they sailed to Cyprus.

Act 16:6 — 10  Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia, After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. And they passing by Mysia came down to Troas. And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us. And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them.

Dearly beloved, Bible days believers gave listening ears, obediently to the sayings of the blessed Holy Spirit unquestionably.
This same ministry is still continuously done today to  the universal church of Christ. See it.

Revelation 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Very very unfortunately, today’s believers which must exclude you, question the sayings of the blessed Holy Spirit in the Bible, because of their misconception of what church means biblically.
It is true that multitudes of ministries and denominations with different names now abound globally.  But then, this is just happening for the purposes of administrative convenience and the spread of the gospel globally according to our Lord.

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.

However, the church should be one in teachings and doctrines. Since we are reading the same Bible and claim to be inspired by the same blessed Holy Spirit.
But then surprisingly, when the sayings of the blessed Holy Spirit is preached to some people who claims to be believers, they blindly reject the word of God, saying it is a particular denomination teaching that doctrine and such is not taught in their own denomination.
They claimed only faith, healings, deliverance,  prosperity, breakthroughs  are the things God sent them to preach.
They rejected God’s express words on holiness, worldliness, heavenly mindedness etc. It should not be so.  See what our Lord said to all His universal church.

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.

1 Timothy 4:16  Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

Act 20:26 — 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.

The entirety of God’s unfailing words in the Bible must be preached and believed by the entire universal church of Christ.
This is because the biblical meaning of a church is not denomination, but called out brethren bought with the precious blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. See it yourself.

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.

1Co 6:19 — 20  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Dearly beloved don’t trivialize your eternal well-being on the altar of denominationalism. If your shepherd is not teaching the entire Bible and you are wise, you want to live with Jesus in heaven.
Then prayerfully seek another denomination teaching the entirety of the scriptures, which will determine your eternal well-being. You know the blessed Holy Spirit has revealed this truth to you in particular this day. May it not judge you at eternity in Jesus name.

Jn 12:46 — 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 see some of the sayings of the blessed Holy Spirit, our Lord Jesus Christ said shall determine your earthly and eternal wellness.

Revelation 2:11  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Rev 2:25 — 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.

Rev 3:5 — 6  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. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev 3:11 — 13 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Rev 3:19 — 22  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

 May the Lord help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Friend, the rapture is dawning. God shall do everything to help you to be part of it in Jesus name.
But then, the vast majority of today’s professors of religion and nominal churchgoers globally shall not be part of this imminent event.
This is because they turned deaf ears to the sayings of the blessed Holy Spirit. See what He said about them.

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;

2Ti 3:1 — 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 4:1 — 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.

Friend, because you are wise then give attention and listening ears to what the blessed Holy Spirit is saying. See  some of  them yourself.

Revelation 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Rev 3:10 — 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.

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.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

God  shall give you in  particular, grace  to help you to be doer of this word  in Jesus name.

Jam 1:22  But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

See you at the top in Jesus name
