To Fear God is to Know God, but There is More
There is a missing message that has never been preached until now. that message is to no God is to fear God but there is more that is not being told. No one is taking God serious. No one is looking at God, Jesus or their powers. No one has the fear of understanding. Most really don't know nor care deeply about who God is according to his promise of life for us.
To get you to see what I'm about to talk about I must first get you to see what we are dealing with. There are many powerful scriptures I could refer to God to show his powers but I want to give you this one. It may be quite long to read but you have to feel and see in your mind eye the power of God and the Power of his love. I want you to look through Heaven's door and take a glance at yourself.
So Read these scriptures and I will see you at the end.....
The Revelation of Jesus Christ ....... Revelation 1-18
1The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, 2 who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.
Message to the Seven Churches
4 John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace, from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne,5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood— 6 and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father—to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 7 BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
The Patmos Vision
9 I, John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and perseverance which are in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet,11 saying, “Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.”
12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw seven golden lampstands;13 and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash.14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire.15 His feet were like burnished bronze, when it has been made to glow in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of many waters.16 In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp two-edged sword; and His face was like the sun shining in its strength.
17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet like a dead man. And He placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid; I am the first and the last,18 and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.
"Good googly moo." I don't know about you but I felt every thing I spoke of above. The scripture provokes fear in me. It provokes love in me. It provokes interest and concern and most of all It provokes change and thought. If you didn't get the same reaction then "NASA" "we have a problem."
You see that God love us so much that he made us to become a Kingdom of Priests to him. To share in his glory. In his power. John heard a voice which was not there before telling him to write the things he would show him. John Turned to see from out of nowhere, Jesus standing there not looking like he did when he lived as flesh and blood on earth but taken on a whole different appearance. A look of Royalty. Of kingship. Of Power.
Jesus said he was the beginning and the ending and that he never dies. He has the keys of life and death in his hands to send man to heaven or hell. Jesus was reminding John, as does his words still does today, to warn the Churches of their wicked ways and twisted religion by preaching and saying they are of God when they are not which still go on today.
But one of the strongest thing here we see is that John surrendered all and recognizing that he serve Jesus and fall under him and not on level with him. He respected him and not disrespected him, but fell at the feet of Jesus like a dead man. This is with out heavy breath. Weakness in body. Sobering mind. Releasing all to the most powerful in pitty and humbleness.
Jesus replied to John faithfulness by saying, "do not be afraid". 'I was once flush and blood like you". "I was dead like you will be someday but I am alive forevermore just like you will be one day".
So, from a vision. Now listen! I said from a vision he appeared to John. Not in the flesh. Not even in solid form. Why? Because he said when he does return every eye shall see him. So this is not a return as many are claiming when they say that "Jesus is here" or "Jesus told them to tell this or that". It's just a vision to let those playing Church no they are fooling themselves
Now let's stop so I can get you to see a few things. It's all about existing with power.
Let's see! So for, we know the reward for obedience is life. We know that Jesus is very concern about our being faithfulness to him so he's making a, what I call, last effort, to remind Church people he wasn't satisfied with how thing are going and to fix it. Maybe the reason was tha he was to going to leave us along for a long time. Maybe he wanted to make sure we can hold the fort down while he addressed more important business in Heaven probably concerning the galaxies.
This vision trip was that he saw man declining, His words becoming just words. He's upset to see that his death was quickly fading in the hearts of men. Instead of teaching they were pretending, using magician tricks and ole wise tales while bending before Satan using the house built to worship the Lord as the home base for growing followers for Satan just as it is being done today.
Today the Church has fallen even worse than the time of the "Seven Churches". In fact, these Churches no longer exist and they was indeed moved just as Jesus said they would be if they didn't straighten up. Islam spread throughout the Middle East and these churches were overrun and destroyed. There are now churches in the same regions, but the ones to whom John wrote were overtaken by Muslims.
So, what about the Churches of today. While Jesus delay his return the mouse will play thinking they got it made since Jesus hasn't return as they thought he would have. And since many a few thousand years have past and nothing has occurred so the rats have embolden themselves thinking they got it made. I must be doing something right since nobody has physically stopped them. We'll just play Church, hoop and holler and whoop it up.
You see, the Church of today can sit back and play Church since all the battles, wars, hard trials tribulations including medical advancement is behind it. The trailblazers of the past have faced all the dangers and died. They had to struggle and fear. Face being murdered for their beliefs and was murdered. They prayed and prayed and prayed. They called out through plagues in the Unites States where five million died. These was Church people that had it hard and lived in fear. Even today, in Muslim areas there are Christians being persecuted.
But in the free world today the Church know they don't have to go through this, at least not now, so they pretend like they have some kind of relationship with God. After every one else paid the cost the new world Church seat itself as the one God will answer prayers for. They are not persecuted. They have no now life as did those in the past to put on the line so they build great Churches and gain huge followers telling the people that God will hear they prayers.
What kind of people are in the Church today?
They are the Ghosts of the dead Seven Churches reborn with the same followers. Most neither hot nor cold. Playing the field both ways. That is, pretending to love God through Bible classes, Sunday meetings and loving the things of Satan through worldly affairs at the same time. Most don't even know how to serve. Don't know the requirement for Heaven. Don't even know the mission of Christ. Don't know the first thing about love. Yea, I said it. Don't know the first thing about love.
But I do know this. The Church of today is not the Church God want. Why would he want many of them? Just look at them. They are all over the world and on every corner in the Unites States and been there forever making no different in the out come of the way society have become. In fact evil have grown by leaps and bounds in every society where there are Churches. In fact, where there are any religion posing a working for God or a god. Society has become the devil's playground.
When the Seven Churches did exist there were only one out of the seven that was barely meeting God's grade of "C". This "one" represented a "few there be that will make it in". The warning was not heeded.
Don't the preacher know that all those who are faithful will receive power and return from the dead in a new body to be Priests and even maybe Kings? Don't they know that God want only the righteous? Don't the Church know that God has no need for loud mouths, liars, cowards, those that keep their mouth shut, backbiters, thieves, rock and rollers and other satanic music singers, pulpit slickers of robbers and the such?.......... They shall not inherit the Kingdom of God! ....Remember?
Today again, people walk around as though they have conquered the Bible. That they have met God's kind of people. That they have matched the same level of Love Jesus reached while on earth as a fleshly human. Some even believe they are more connected with God than the disciples themselves whom walked side by side with Jesus.
Why? Because they feel like they have the power to convince God to come to their aid when God didn't rush to the aid of powerful people like Paul and others whom he loved much better than we today. They think they are better connected because God does not intervene in their Church business dealings and exploits. So they convince the weak that through their richness they too can multiply and not worry about God's punishment because he is satisfied with what he see or he would have done something before now against it.
To Fear God and Hell with thought......
The fear of God is no longer is to know God. But there is more. The fear of God is wondering what it will be like to return from the dead and stand before God in the present of many many people and angles looking on wondering what will be the out come?
"Why didn't I learn to love every body?" "I didn't have to give up everything to them or live with them." "All I had to do was to have a heart." "To feel other's pain and their sorrows sometime." "To care." " to give." "To think of some body else besides myself." "But all I cared about was the fast life." "Large beautiful houses and land." "Owning big businesses's and companies." "Enjoying life to the fullest not caring who I hurt." "Turning people away from God and having them give to me instead while I preached false religion saying it was of God." "Pretending in Church like I am better than other." "Thinking that giving Church programs all the time was doing the will of God when all the time it was benefiting me." "Putting me on a high pedestal." "I even sang to show every body how good my vocals was and how well I can execute the runs and vibes using my voice techniques and how well I pretended to be happy while shouting when I knew it was all rehearsed for my glory and not the glory of God." "How I was always quick to praise God with a religious song or a gesture when I knew I preferred the secular music and life style."
"Yes, even playing my music." "How well I played was to show my talent toward others and not God even though I said it was." "It was all about me." "I got caught up in the world and I loved it." "But now that love for the world has turned against me." "I am sorry, but it's too late." "I should have listen to those warning me." "I should have followed another pastor as I was told." "But I didn't"
"Now I'm standing alone before God now fearing, not knowing what the out come will be." "Nothing I've owned, people and friends I've followed and trusted can help me now." "Now I stand along shaking before the Great White Throne hoping there is still hope." "That God will see some good in me to save me." "But I don't know! I'm trembling! Never have I felt such fear in my life." "But yet, I can't faint though I want too." "I can't cry out to Jesus who looks on to help me."
"All I can say is PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE have mercy on me." "Now, I can fall on my knees before God like a dead man." "Still God looks and all the might men's of host watch for the final verdict as I stare into Hell standing in Heaven." "Now I know what it is to fear." "But how can the verdict be for life?" "Im so scared.......!!!!"
I should and so should you .....
I shouldn't be telling you this if you belong to another Church. But up to now many have not gotten it so I should. You should too if you care about what you see and others....
So, What have you done so great that God would want you in heaven? Think about it!
