“Exit Strategy” (book seen below) is now available at most e-book venues.
Have you really entrusted yourself to His Ways?
The key to correct understanding of all verses that say something like “he who believes shall be saved” is in knowing what the word “believe” means. In practically every case it is the word “Pisteou” meaning to entrust.
My posts are obviously controversial because this understanding in not well known among the body of Christ world-wide. Once we know this single fact, our perception of a Carte Blanche relationship with Christ is obliterated. This is good? Absolutely!
Likeness to Christ means in heart, soul, and spirit. The very image of Christ speaks to our restrained behavior before others.
Read later, post: “Do we believe?”
These things posted and written in Exit Strategy are portions of understanding and are Gods grace to enlighten all of us. We would have little understanding if someone had not written down what they knew so the Bible could be created. God by the Holy Spirit is faithful to explain them. We must exercise our will to attain them. How else will he know our heart. “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” “The heart is deceitfully wicked.” Look it up. Pretending will no longer work as times of greater struggle escalate. Our true soul will be revealed one way or the other. There is a reason why there will be “weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Luke 13:28) There are things in life we all deeply regret. This must cover all of them, “If you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” This scripture follows the Lord’s Prayer. Next verse. So…how important do you think it is?
Father God is not going to held accountable for our lack of understanding. He sent Moses, Jesus, the Disciples, The Bible, thousands of preachers and now a nobody like Gideon whose only asset is that he is willing to try and hide the wheat from the enemy by bringing it to the “wine press.” Look it up. Are you feeling squeezed yet? We either let God thresh the chafe from our lives by His kindness or the enemy will do it in hell.
Remember, diseased wheat is no different from a Tare. Unforgiveness that remains in any form is a dis-ease we could have been healed of. Are we refusing?
This understanding does not prepare us for His immediate return. It prepares us to survive the darkness that precedes Him. Darkness is already being revealed and with biblical certainty will get worse. However, our defense is such that our “heavenly grace” toward all who accost us confirms our readiness for eternity. Our preparation is how God knows He can unleash the full blown prophecies of darkness and save those who embrace the defense He has created. “Many” however will perish. (Matthew 7)
Come on we can get prepared so we can then bless God by helping others. Many who before did not believe (entrust) will believe (entrust) now as the evidence mounts daily confirming the Word of God. This is God’s preparatory grace. Thank You Lord.
The coming times will demand our understanding. Preparing now is paramount.
You are loved as He waits for us,
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
