How Much Of You?

There is great deception occurring across the entire planet today, evil, more specifically Satan and those who fell, or better yet, were cast out of heaven, are beginning to lead men astray in the only way they know how, by lies.

This lie has been shown to us in the Word of God, these days of great deception we have been forewarned of all of what you are witnessing today is not going to go away, we are, (1 Thess. 4:17) those who have been born-again. What is important though, not to lesson that blessed moment, is what you are prepared to do as a servant of the Lord Jesus until that day. The answer is quite obvious, if you love the Lord, we are to warn others of these truths. “But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?” (Matt. 3:7)

The position that you hold in this world, your employment classification, is where the Lord has placed you for a specific purpose, the higher up the ladder, so to speak, that you have been set, the more influence you hold, the more people you are responsible for, and the more that you have an opportunity to each out to for the glory of the Lord. Righteous defiance, whether on an individual basis, or upon the large corporation owned by a God-fearing man will be dealt harshly with and has indeed already begun in many places. We will not win this battle, the victory belongs to Christ, but even those in Jerusalem when the Romans said, “Enough,” who served the Lord in that day watched as their city was completely destroyed, many were killed, many escaped.

Those whom the Lord chose to live though were not hindered in the Word, or their desire to spread the good news of the Gospels, (Mark 16:15) they continued to perform the task placed before them.

We are at a crossroads, so to speak, we have reached a point on a planetary scale where speaking out against the evils of this world can bring upon us much suffering, and we must determine if He whom we say we love and serve is worthy of the suffering that may come upon us. These words have been spoken in closed quarters, behind locked doors, in caves and upper rooms between men and women of God many times over the centuries, is He whom we say we love worthy of our lives? Are we willing to suffer affliction (Phil 3:10) for His glory?

You have read in many of these short letters to you these words, “No matter the circumstances, no matter the consequences to ourselves.” Bold words from one who sleeps in a comfortable bed, one who has food on the table and clothes to wear. It is when those circumstances change adversely, when the consequences for following Christ become detrimental, when all that we own, all that we hold dear is removed from us, and we find not only our lives completely turned upside down, but death itself seems certain that we find out who it is we truly serve, ourselves or Jesus Christ, to the glory of God.

There may be coming a time when He to whom we say we are devoted to will be tested, when He whom we have attempted to show the love of to that lost and sinful world out there may be asked to prove by the conviction of the knowledge of our death by their hands.

I would ask you to contemplate Revelation 12:11 here, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” These words were written not just for the knowledge of what will happen to those in the Tribulation period, but as a reminder that many have done so for many centuries, that many of our brothers and sisters in Christ have done this very thing. “(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.” (Heb. 11:38) How much my friends, how much of you belongs to Jesus Christ?
