?Today, let’s thinks upon these things…
Have you all noticed the past few years how so many inside and outside of the Church Body are edifying darkness to a whole new degree?
This is what I mean ~ It seems many people are so focused on what the enemy is doing through darkness, it is all they want to talk about or fixate on, forgetting our Father is Sovereign. The word the Lord gave me about this is, “They are edifying darkness.”
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Scripture tells us not to focus on the wiles of the enemy, but rather THINK upon things which are HONEST, JUST, PURE, LOVELY. It also teaches us to not pass around any REPORTS unless they are GOOD. He is telling us that those who have VIRTUE and PRAISE follow this command by our Lord.
I must admit to see the Body of Christ deviating from this path grieves my heart very much. It is almost as if way to many people are thirsty to be filled by “dark reports” to the point they are even becoming passionate and hungered to be filled with them and even taking them and passing them onto others. This is a slippery slope to which one can, crave to be filled by darkness itself and eventually be consumed. I have been in communication with many who “lust after darkness” in such a way.
We must have balance in all things… Except for darkness. Light voids out darkness, not mixes with it.
The Word tells us to RESIST THE ENEMY and HE WILL FLEE, but this is only AFTER we SUBMIT TO GOD FIRST.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
So what the Lord has been showing me as of late is quite alarming to say the least. I know this message will be brought with much resistance because people will say we need to be informed and I could not agree more. They also often quote the Scripture out of context that “People perish for lack of knowledge.” As a matter of fact, let’s just get that settled and out of the way right now.
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.
The Word here is telling us that GOD’S PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HIM. This Scripture also compliments the Scripture in Revelation, in which the Church of Ephesus has left it’s first love, chasing after doctrines of devils. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Thankfully, the Lord has given us a space and time to repent and turn from these devilish ways.
I am reminded of how what we will feed upon will grow – Spiritually, as seeds planted within us, individually as a garden bed. If we are constantly searching, craving and desiring to have knowledge about darkness and the World, then within us darkness and the World will grow and our walk will not be complete, but rather chaotic as we run to and fro upon the Earth. However, if what we desire is a closer relationship with the Lord we will seek His attributes in order to be filled by Him with honesty, love, purity and righteousness.
Jesus is our peace which surpasses all understanding. The truth is, many of us do not have peace and we often wonder why? It is primarily because we are not drawing upon the Prince of Peace as our primary source for all things.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
So… Precious Children, be very careful of what you hear and see knowing, whatever you entertain is in return entertaining you.
May the Lord Bless You in His Love,
