Word from God – August 12, 2022 – Keeping God’s commandments
Whilst in prayer, the Lord was leading me to read Jeremiah 18 and Ezekiel 11. And praying on this word this is what I received from God as the underlying theme regarding walking in our Creator’s ways.
When reading Jeremiah 18 it explains how God is our potter and we are the clay.
Jeremiah 18:6 - O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
God was asking the nation of Israel to repent, to repent from doing evil in His sight , otherwise judgement was coming to Israel and more specifically Judah. And we see in the verses below that the men of Judah chose to rather walk after their own devices and in their own evil ways.
Jeremiah 18:11-12 11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good. 12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.
But what is this evil really ? We get more of the answer in verse 15.
Jeremiah 18:15 - Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
We see the ancient way refers to days of old. Many may say this refers to God’s Torah , which is made up of His commandments, statutes and judgements. Although , this is what I have come to believe, I don’t necessarily believe it means keeping all 613 commandments of the law, but rather those that are perpetual such as the ten commandments and the biblical feast days. Some of the Torah also doesn’t apply to everyone, for example some are for women, for priests etc. And thankfully Lord Jesus Christ is our high priest and those sacrificial laws and offerings have been replaced , and as part of a new covenant Lord Jesus Christ is our High Priest who intercedes on our behalf. He himself became the ultimate sacrifice.
Also an important note is that we keep the commandments as we are saved, we are not saved by keeping them but only through grace and through faith in Lord Jesus Christ. However there are also blessings in keeping the commandments and curses for not doing so.
A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:Deuteronomy 11:27 KJV
Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.Proverbs 7:2 KJV
And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.Matthew 19:17 KJV
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.John 15:10 KJV
Does this mean we are perfect or aim to do things on our own? Absolutely not ! We should never be doing this mechanically or just for the sake of doing it, that is religion. Also none of us are perfect, we all sin, but God provides His Mercy in that when we sin we confess that sin and according to 1 John 1:19 , if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us for our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. That is why living a repentant life is also important, including daily repentance.
If we go back to the verses above we also see what the Hebrew word for walk really means. It is the work yalak, which means to walk in counsels and statutes and in this case it is the counsels and statutes of the Living God. In Jeremiah 18:15 we see that the way the people chose to go translates to a bad sense meaning walking in evil ways… away from the commandments of God, which in essense is sin.
I was then lead to read Ezekiel 11 and this for me was another witness as these words stuck out to me. God was speaking to the rulers in Israel at that time and how He would bring judgement upon them for not walking in His ways.
Ezekiel 11:12 And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.
The verses in later in the chapter express how God will restore Israel especially if they choose to walk in His ways.
Ezekiel 19-20: 19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: 20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
I do believe this is a promise of these end days , God is indeed giving us a new heart and putting a new spirit within us, that we may walk in His ways always and forever.
I pray that this word, gives you some food for thought. Always pray and take things to God, ask Him about this word and if it is relevant for you. I pray this blesses you ! Shalom.
Urgent warning to the unsaved, lukewarm and OSAS believers
Hi All, just sharing an urgent message from a sister in Christ regarding those that are unsaved , lukewarm and once saved always saved believers.
We need to constantly examine ourselves and grow in Lord Jesus Christ. We are also responsible to pray for more human souls to be saved. Time is so short. Lord Jesus Christ is on His way and He us coming for His people, those without spot or wrinkle or blemish.
Below is an excerpt from my about page. We cannot afford to focus on the cares of this world and we need to be living for Christ and giving him our all.
As born-again believers, we should strive to be holy, set apart, repentant, and give our all for Lord Jesus Christ. We should come out of this world and focus on following God’s will for our lives and continue to share the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. Walking with God is indeed a journey and process and we will always be learning. Doing the following should also help:
- Read, implement and make the bible standard for your life. (Proverbs 4:20-22)
- Love our Heavenly Father, Yahweh with all your heart mind and soul. (Matthew 22, 37-38)
- Submit your own will to God’s perfect will for you. (Romans 12:2)
- Be baptised and filled regularly with the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 5:18)
- Pray and spend time in God’s presence. (Psalm 62:8)
- Be quick to forgive others and and yourself. (Ephesians 6:14-18)
- Live a holy life, not a life according to your flesh. (Galatians 5:24-25)
- Witness and speak words of life, not death. (Mark 16:15)
- Use the sword of the spirit which is the word of God, and make prayer and supplication for all the saints of God. Do not be afraid to fight back and conquer the forces of evil. (Ephesians 6:17-18 and Isaiah 54:14-17)
Warning from Lord Jesus Christ on 9th June 2022
I have been hearing this since early this morning which the Holy Spirit is leading me to warn about urgently. !!!
⚠️⚠️⚠️ THERE IS A GREAT FALLING AWAY HAPPENING, AND WHAT HAPPENS SOON AFTER IS REVEALED IN THE VERSES ABOVE !!!
⚠️⚠️⚠️ MANY have ignored the warnings from GOD/Yahweh and God’s true prophets about the current abomination. Many mock and laugh us to scorn when we tried to warn others!!
⚠️⚠️⚠️ MANY have ignored that the abomination for this current pandemic contains Crispr gene editing technology!!!
⚠️⚠️⚠️ MANY are ignoring and are asleep to all the end time signs around us spoken of in Matthew 24… wars and rumours of wars, famine, or in our case the coming famine. Earthquakes in diverse places etc.
We as watchmen and watchwomen cannot condemn anyone, but only lead human souls to the truth. !! And the purpose of this post is not to condemn. Please seek God on what you need to do to prepare for the extremely tough times ahead and if you have taken it or not.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ MANY are still asleep or wish to stick their heads in the sand about the very well known facts, how this whole pandemic has been orchestrated to bring about the new world order plans , bring technocratic governments and control people with digital IDs and soon coming one world currency. No you CANNOT TRUST IN MAN AT ALL.
Just put your TRUST in GOD, in Lord Jesus Christ, and Fear him only , for only He can destroy both the body and the soul.
If you do not have a relationship with true living God, it’s never too late to develop one, or if you have been lukewarm its NOT too late to turn from wickedness and repent.
Yahweh will have none that should perish, but come to the truth of having a relationship with the true living God. We are all sinners , and only Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins, so that we don’t have to suffer the penalty of sin which is eternal death , instead we can inherit eternal life. Don’t put off your salvation for another day, as nothing in this world is guaranteed. Nothing else matters, no … not money, wealth even your reputation if you are not living for God.
You could pray the following if you desire to turn back and give your life to God.
Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that I am a sinner, please forgive me for all my sins, and for not following Your word. I ask that You, Lord Jesus Christ would come into my life and be my Lord and Saviour. I am willing to walk this journey with You Lord Jesus Christ and I believe that You came in the flesh and died for my sins. I accept and receive Your gift of salvation and I aim to walk in Your ways and follow Your word, Your commandments. I thank You, Lord. In Jesus Christ’s name, I pray. Amen
