*James 5:7-10 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.
*Matt 25:1-5 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
The bridegroom is now delivered, now is not the time to slumber or sleep. To those who lack the Spirit (love) of God that would be foolish.
The foolish took no oil. What is the oil?
*1 Sam 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward.
The oil is the spirit of the Lord. What is the Spirit? Read also Gal 5:22-23
*2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
To my brethren who are being chastened and spanked by God Heb 12:6-7, I have emailed each of you this web address, wake up! Satan has been bruised, his lies are revealed; do not let the devil deceive you anymore, resist the spirit of hate towards Gods children. Turn your hearts to the children Mal 4:6, Luke 1:17, this is it!
*Rev 3:16,19 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
You could be grafted back in. The scripture below is written to the Gentiles in regards to the natural branches that were cut off. The time of the Gentiles continues Luke 21:24.
*Rom 11:20-23 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
The righteous will scarcely be saved 1 Pet 4:18. How to be righteous is in this weblog.
You may not have enough time to become righteous enough to be chosen as a bride, however depending on your diligence you may become righteous enough to make it as one of the multitude through the great tribulation Rev 7:14.
The only so called rapture that will take place is for those few people who will do the work to be chosen as a bride Matt 24:40-41, Luke 17:35-36.
*Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Those chosen for the multitude are not raised until the thousand years are finished. All who claim to be believers of God will have a rude awakening when they find themselves in the great tribulation and not taken up in a rapture, nor protected.
Unless the love of God for all that he reveals to us through this blog is living through you he does not know you Matt 7:23.
*Rev 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
In the coming kingdom of God the Father only the bride (144,000) and a multitude of people from all nations Rev 7:9 are chosen to live inside the walls of the kingdom. All the rest live outside the walls.
*Rev 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
How do you buy? You ask the seller. Asking God for anything is humbling yourself, it is admitting that you do not know and you must be willing to do the work, seek it.
*Matt 7:7-8 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
You must seek with your whole heart soul and mind Matt 22:37. What is gold tried in the fire? God’s word is the fire Jer 23:29, the gold is the great treasure you can find in the word. The word of love is the gift of eternal life for all.
*Matt 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
*Matt 4:4 … Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
*Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
*Matt 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
Have you ever panned for gold? Did you find fools gold? The Bible is like panning for gold. Rightly divide the word (love) of truth, here a little and there a little.
Much is required to whom much is given Luke 12:48, but be careful, your efforts must be genuine, you cannot lie to God he knows your heart. You must have the love of God for all God’s children 1 John 2:2 which surpasses all understanding until it is revealed to us at the heel of time when nothing more is hidden.
*Acts 3:23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
God will give you understanding if you will hear this truth delivered Luke 24:45.
*Ephesians 5:17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
*1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
*Eph 3:19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
*Mark 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Nothing is greater than love as you love yourself with God’s love. Repentance is forgiving yourself for your sins. So love other sinners the same. All will confess.
* Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
*1 Cor 13:1-7 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
*Rev 3:16-17 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
The only reason UCG is lukewarm is because of their keeping of the Sabbath and the Holy Days otherwise they would be cold. These Holy Days will be kept during the thousand years and beyond Zech 14:16.
*Isa 66:22-23 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.
Lukewarm does not mean almost hot. Lukewarm is as far away from hot as is cold from lukewarm, not even close. Why can’t you see you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked? It’s called pride. What does naked mean? It means you will go through the great tribulation; you have no protection even though you think you do.
Be wise and hear.
