Jeremiah 23: 20, 21 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until He has performed and carried out the purposes of His heart; in the last days you will clearly understand it.
Too many people have no mature Christians in their midst to guide them. A mature Christian is not someone who has it all together and always has "God's answer" for your predicament. It is someone who submits to the will of God and depends upon the word of God to rightly divide all knowledge and lead forward His plan.
We humans, have a tendency to cherry pick God's truth and twist it to commiserate our own wants. We then attempt to group our self with like minded individuals who will not rock our god sized boat. God however, does not need people to rock our boats. He has sent our adversary, the devil to prowl about like a roaring lion; he is just waiting to rock someones boat and devour them.
We will be doing a study on some very mature subjects this summer, in order for you to completely understand how God intends this for your safety and growth. Mostly, for your ability to quickly decide to get out of places you should never enter. Sometimes however, you get too far into bad situations and it takes time for Him to release you from self made bondage's. He alone can tell you when it is safe to exit or if He will clear the house and allow you to stay. As for all the variables in between, we will know the truth. What you do with it is between you and Him.
This is an overview of our focus scriptures:
Isaiah 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, declares the Lord, "Who execute a plan but not Mine, and make an alliance but not of My spirit, in order to add sin to sin;
Isaiah 33:1 Woe to you, O destroyer, While you were not destroyed; And he who is treacherous while others did not deal treacherously with him.l As soon as you shall finish destroying, you shall be destroyed; As soon as you shall cease to deal treacherously, others shall deal treacherously with you.
Jeremiah 15: 6 "You who have forsaken Me", declares the Lord, "You keep going backward so I will stretch out My hand against you and destroy you: I am tired of relenting!".
Jeremiah 17: 14 Heal me, O Lord and I will be healed; Save me and I will be saved, For thou art my praise.
I Peter 1:14, 15, 16 As obedient children do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behaviour; because it is written "You shall be Holy for I am Holy."
I Peter 3: 21, 22 And corresponding to that baptism now saves you - not the removal of dirt from the flesh but an appeal to God for a good conscience- through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who is at the right hand of God, having gone into heaven after angels and authorities and powers had been subjected to Him.
1 Peter 4:1 Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live the rest of time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men....but for the will of God.
and lastly, 1 Peter 4: 5 which I hope you will learn by heart and tuck it away to safe guard you:
And in all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excess of dissipation and they malign you; but they shall give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead.
As Peter ended his letter, I also end mine:
Peace be to you ........all who are in Christ (that is).
