We are to be lights to this world of darkness that is all around us with everything closing to an end!
BE LIGHTS TO A DARK WORLD WHERE EVIL RULES TODAY
by Bishop Jimmie W. Warren
“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.” (Proverbs 4:18)
Those who keep laws from the old testament,certain days, unclean foods and new moons are pursuing spiritual goals but it is too difficult, because if we are left to our own devices we cannot do enough good to be accounted as good or justified in the sight of our Lord. Remember what Jesus said “why do you call me good, only the father is good!. (Mark 10: 18 ; Luke 18:19)
Brothers and sisters of the Lord Yeshua do not fight over such matters they are there to draw you backwards into followers of Moses Laws that lead to death! (Read my article Let No Man Deceive You; (Do this for your own Bible study)
Keeping laws to show ones self as being good, is of NO VALUE because NO ONE can keep the laws given to the 12 tribes of Israel when they were coming out of Egypt!
No one—not even Moses himself—could do the work of Moses without being anointed with the Spirit of God. To ease Moses' burden, God spread some of Moses’ anointing by His Spirit —giving it to 70 respected elders who would share in the task of leadership. When the Spirit of God is working in someone, spiritual gifts manifest. Prophecy is just one of these gifts (1 Corinthians 12:4–11, 28 ; Romans 12:6–8)
These gifts were only available to a select few until the Holy Spirit descended on upon the first Believers which was 50 days after Passover The day we call Pentecost!
“I am going to bring My servant the Branch [a future king from the line of David] … and I will remove that country's guilt in a single day. In that day—declares the LORD of Hosts—you will be inviting each other to the shade of vines and fig trees.” (Zechariah 3:8–10; Jeremiah 33:15 )
This righteous Branch from the line of David has appeared, and in one day, He paid the penalty for our sin and clothed us with His righteousness. This was done when Jesus Christ said from the cross “IT IS FINISHED” All sins were forgiven and still are when you repent and ask your father Yahweh , through the blood of his ONLY BEGOTTEN SON for forgiveness by the name of Yeshua Messiah–Jesus the Christ
Each of us need The Holy Spirit in our everyday lives empowering us to obey His word, manifest His love, joy, and peace, and exercise spiritual gifts He has bestowed upon us.
Filled with The Holy Spirit, each of us are beacons of light that show the way to a lost and dying world. One practical way we can shine as lights in the midst of the darkness is to express gratitude in all things, rejoicing in the Lord always. When was the last time you thanked him for all you have?
“Do everything without complaining or arguing so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.” (Philippians 2:14–15)
Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart. Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake. For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:1-6)
Brethren we are in the mist of darkness and our world is coming to a dark black end, are you ready for it, if not WAKE UP before your caught off guard , stubbing through the darkness of lie and deceit which is everywhere even in the White House and through-out our whole government which is ready to fall.
Then Jesus told them,"You are going to have the light just a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, before darkness overtakes you. The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. Put your trust in the light while you have it, so that you may become sons of light....” (John 12:35-36)
We who have the light (Yeshua / Jesus) must speak up, “ we must share the light and not hide it under a basket.” (Matthew 5:15) tell everyone you talk to that the Lord YESHUA/JESUS is coming soon.to repent and change the way they are living while they have time before all our judgment day is upon us!
“ But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness ” (1 John 1:7-9)
“ And this is what he promised us--even eternal life. I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him. Children of God And now, dear children, continue in him, so that when he appears we may be confident and unashamed before him at his coming. If you know that he is righteous, you know that everyone who does what is right has been born of him” ( 1 John 2:25-29)
Beloved as the end draws closer each day keep your light bright because our father YAHWEH / ELOHIM is watching and will soon send his son to judge and rule over this world , so keep studying the word of God to know you are the light of the world because you have the Lord JESUS in your heart , Amen!
God warned that He might remove the lamp stand of a congregation if they continue in sin and refuse to repent. As Yeshua (Jesus) told the church at Ephesus: "I am coming to you, and will remove your lamp stand out of its place—unless you repent." (Revelation 2:5)
ARE YOU READY TO SHINE AND SPREAD THE GOSPEL THAT JESUS DIED ROSE ON THE THIRD DAY, HE NOW SITTING AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD , FOR THIS IS WHAT YOUR TOLD TO DO!
Thank you for your time for reading and studying this with me and as with all what I write believe it or not I am not trying to get you to change churches or beliefs but read what The Holy Spirit gave me to share with anyone who needs new truth come their way.
Your fellow sinner and servant to the Lord
