My thoughts,...

The Devil comes into your life masquerading as an angel of light, throughout the years using your weaknesses he gains your loyalty. He knows the law very well and has learned to utilize it for his own selfish gain. He takes advantage of your friendship and manipulates full control over every aspect of your existence. He’s a prideful bully who’s unrighteous craft has you isolated and uncertain of everything, relying on him for guidance. And once you are no longer found useful to him he discards you, treacherously betrays your heart in order to further his Diotrephic agenda. He proceeds to take a healthy congregation and fabricate chaos and division. His native tongue is a lie, he does nothing but deceive and build disciples for his own preeminence, and those weak of spirit follow their new task master. He emboldens behavioural delinquencies, flattering the worldly minded he facilitates a recruited beast with 3 heads. He’s now the corrupt leader puppeteering his slaves into submission. He continues spreading malicious nonsense about the faithful, those he has used and abused. Not satisfied with that, he even refuses to welcome other believers who might expose him for who he truly is. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church. If you cannot be devoured he’ll spit you out. He loves power, control, money, and he’ll accuse you of everything he is found guilty of. His track record speaks for itself, leaving nothing but a trail of dismantle, depletion, division and sorrow. Breaking up families and shutting down any hope. He's a stumbling block.

The Devil has the world so why bother with it, his focus is among us, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. And though some Christians have been reading such spiritual threats in the Bible for decades, the moment comes and they can’t discern right from wrong.

This has been happening in the church for ages, and sadly will continue until the Day God sets justice for all who have been greatly sinned against. Take courage, brethren,...

For those who survive and heal from the oppressors venom, know this, God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you, and give relief to you who are troubled. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might.

Faithful Christians:

Our little children have seen us cry, devastated in deep sorrow; have they not wept along with us? Have we not embraced and shared tears, seeking an answer from God, guidance, hope, peace, justice, and mercy? Are we not humbled before the great I AM? Yes, yes, it is true. When we hurt, they hurt and break, yet God gracefully heals us. The selfish and cold-hearted never humble themselves to the damage they cause; sin has no remorse. But what evil workers fail to know is how stronger in love the faithful flourish, despite their hate. It's not easy being the voice who leads and ministers. It's not easy going through trial and temptation, but we learn patience, do we not? We grow in wisdom, correct? We learn to discern, becoming more fruitful for the Master.

Is it not remarkable how Paul described himself as a prisoner of Christ Jesus when the world considered him the prisoner of Rome? Did not the world consider itself victorious over Christ on the cross, only to be defeated...

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,
