Our Lord wants us to be more than just believers who qualify for God’s Fire Insurance Policy. For sure, Christ wants to be more to us—who are His Body—than just someone who saves us from the end-time Wrath of God, as well as saves us from the Lake of Fire’s eternal punishment.
Oh, the hypocrisy of it all—believers in Christ who declare they believe in all Scriptures, yet when they are challenged to prove it – crickets.
ALL the Hebrew and Roman religious leaders’ traditions of men that have been added to the Word of God are why so many believers in Christ who will be living right before the Tribulation Period begins will be so unprepared and unalert. They will be the carnal believers and the natural men and women (unbelievers – Jews and Gentiles) who will miss the Rapture and end up suffering during the Tribulation Period.
The evil Jezebel Spirit will stir up wickedness and apostasy with her “adorned” unholy beliefs and worldly wisdom. Enticement is the aim of the Jezebel Spirit, for it seeks to seduce faithful, obedient, service-oriented, Agápe loving, spiritual laborers into a marriage with her secular systems with their gods. RESIST through the power and authority the Holy Spirit gives.
What have believers in Christ done with encouragement or exhortation? It is sad that God’s children do not encourage ALL their brothers and sisters in Christ, when they have the opportunities to do so—sad that so many believers, instead, think it is okay to pick and choose the people they will give support to, give hope to, give help to, show love to, inspire, strengthen, and etcetera.
