An Interesting Thought: The Key to Success and Failure

“We become what we think about.” What do yo think about? If you watch at 7:00 onward, there’s a great message to be heard.

Scripture references the renewing of the mind and the new self (Romans 12:2 and Ephesians 4:20-24). Scripture, also, speaks of the Believer running a race (1 Corinthians 9:24-27 and Hebrews 12:1). These examples are all speaking to one’s ability to build the self into an instrument useable by Christ for the work.

The issue with “We become what we think about,” is that we think about everything but Christ. We are not focused on Kingdom work. We have been, are being, and will continue to be distracted by the works of Satan.

I have noticed that we will speak endlessly about that which we love. They’ll speak of their sports teams, their children, their work, and other distractions. While waiting for the worship service I never hear the congregation speaking of kingdom work.

If the Gospel is not spoken of in the pews, are the members Christian? If the members are not willing to go out into the streets, are living they going in to the highways and byways seeking the lost? If the members are not capable to proclaiming Jesus name, are they really in relationship with Him?

The Unending Search

Scripture is replete with tales of lost sheep. The Old Testament tells of how the nation of Israel are like lost sheep (Psalm 119:176, Jeremiah 50:6), and the New Testament tells of how Jesus came for the lost sheep of Israel (Matthew 10:5-6, 15:24; Luke 15:1-7).

The Old Testament’s description of what lost sheep looks like, one can easily see how all people fit the description of a lost sheep. The end of Psalm 119 is a lament of how the author sees himself forgetting God’s commandments, and wanting God to seek for him. In Jeremiah 50:6 we Jeremiah lamenting over God’s people who were being lead astray by false shepherds, and how the shepherds forgot the flock in their care.

The New Testament’s description is much the same. In Matthew chapter 10:5-6, Jesus commands His disciples to not go to the Gentiles or Samaritans, but to the lost sheep of Israel. Continuing in Matthew, Jesus is proclaiming that He had come for the lost sheep of Israel. Luke records for us Jesus telling a parable of the value of a lost sheep, and the joy in finding that lost sheep.

The concurrent them in all of these passages is the message that we are lost. We are as dumb as sheep, and need a good shepherd to lead us home, and to come after us when we go astray. We need a shepherd to continue to seek the lost and bring them in to the fold.

After the resurrection, Jesus declares:

Matthew 28″18And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.””

We are all sheep. Jesus is our Shepherd. All heaven celebrates when one confesses Jesus as LORD, and believes God raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9).

Satanic Deception

Get vaccinated and get your freedom. My alma mater has presented me with a conundrum. William Carey University states, “no longer requiring masks to be worn by student, employees and visitors WHO HAVE BEEN VACCINATED.”

How will they know who is and who is not vaccinated? What kind of mark or sign will a person need to be verified vaccinated? When was it a privilege to buy, sell, trade, or travel?

16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Re 13:16–17.

And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles, 2016), Re 14:9–10.

Of Purge and Persecution

The Nobility, within “Christian” circles, deny the fast approaching purge and persecution coming to the United Stars. The are too busy praying on the sympathy of their congregations. They supported known politicians whose political platform centers around the destruction of the family. 

Is it any wonder that their mantra has been to silence anyone who speaks out against their progressive liberal cohorts? They refuse to disavow any “Christian” leader who is pro-homosexual, pro-unborn baby murder, pro-illegal immigrant, and many other anti-christ style behaviors. The very thought that the military and the Demarcate party controlled states are purging Christians from their ranks will never be addressed by them.

History is being ignored. One need only to read Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s biography to know what turning a blind eye to progressive “Christians” will lead. We cannot forget our history.

Cowardice in the Church

Those Martyrs from time-in-memorial are on their faces before the LORD, and are praying for the second coming to come soon. It’s sad to see this current generation falling for Satan’s delusions. The Taskmasters from Exodus are in control of the church, and they are called Progressives.

The distraction of the “riots” in the capital allowed for the congress to distract from complete communist voter fraud. We can’t forget how the NAZI took over Germany. Remember the Reichstag fire. Read Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy p. 145.

The Taskmasters all came out to decry the events in Washington D.C. They were all silent durning the “peaceful protest” that burned across America. They will continue to push for the decimation of the church.
