Daily Devotional, Year 2 – May 30

.

.

.

Come Out of Her, My People! Part 11: “A 90% Jesus Is No Jesus!”

To read Part 1, click here… “May 12th (Come Out of Her, My People?)”

.

.

.

.

“Be ye therefore followers of God…

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness,

let it not be once named among you,

as becometh saints;

Neither filthiness, NOR FOOLISH TALK, NOR JESTING…

for because of these things cometh the wrath of God

upon the children of disobedience.”

Ephesians 5:1, 3, 4, 6

“COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE”

Revelation 18:4

.

The call is now going out to anyone who will listen… “Babylon is fallen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpgis fallen…Come out of her My people, that ye partake not of her sins, and receive not of her plagues” Revelation 18:1, 4

.

Yes, the time is come for God’s people to make our Exodus out of the “City of Confusion”, the various Christian organizations that have become a part of Babylon, the world. And this is a literal Exodus!

.

And yet, before we can completely come of her, we must come out of her in our minds. 

.

And so, this day’s devotional will examine one area in which Christians have been deceived by the great Harlot Church, Babylon…

WHICH JESUS DO I WORSHIP?

.

What kind of a Jesus are you looking for? What kind of a Jesus am I looking for? After all, the Bible says there are other Jesus’.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PaulT.jpg

 

                                                                                                                            .

Listen to Paul, as he gently rebuked the Corinthians who were entertaining persons coming with an imitation gospel… “For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached…ye might well bear with him.” 2nd Corinthians 11:4

.

Here above, Paul is revealing a big concept, that the true Jesus is not defined by merely speaking His name.

.

But Jesus is defined by the Bible.

HOW MUCH OF JESUS DO WE WANT?

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:%22Jesus_in_Jeans%22_-_geograph.org.uk_-_1367680.jpgNow we can take this to another level altogether.

.                                                                                                                    

Just how much of Jesus do you or I want in our own life?

.

In other words, do you or I want to have Jesus reign 100% in our lives? Or do we merely want some, but not all of Jesus?

.

This is a very critical question. Because if we only wish some of Jesus to reign in our life, then in reality, we really don’t want the true Jesus to rule and reign over us…

Listen… “And every man that hath this hope in Him (Jesus) purifies himself, even as He (Jesus) is pure.” 1st John 3:3

.

And so, here is a very joyful, but a very difficult saying.

“WRETCHED MAN…I AM!”

Romans 7:24

.

Now, if we are really honest, none of us can claim that we have reached that point in our lives where we have become totally purified.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Pharisee_and_the_publican_Brooklyn.jpg

None of us have become totally Christlike. And anyone who claims to be sinless is trying to convince us that they have become totally Christlike. Well that would be foolishness to make such a claim!

.

We would be like the proud Pharisee in this painting, who is thinking he is righteous and looks down his nose at the humble Publican behind him!

THE BIG PROBLEM IN CHRISTIANITY

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Pharisee_and_the_publican_Brooklyn.jpg.

But people claiming to be sinless is not really the big problem in Christianity.

.

The big problem in Christianity is that most church-goers do not even believe that they are supposed to become purified, even as Christ is purified.

.

.

.

.

.

JOKING CHRISTIANS

.

For example, let’s take just one area of Christianity in which many are confused or mistaken about Christlike behavior.

.

Let’s take the area of joking (the King James Bible calls it “jesting” in Ephesians 5:2).

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

Listen again to today’s opening verse…“Be ye therefore followers of God…But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, NOR FOOLISH TALK, NOR JESTING…Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.” Ephesians 5:1, 3, 4, 6

 

.

There are a great many Christians in today’s very hedonistic society, who have bought into the notion that joking is a good thing. And in defense of their worldly humor, many will say something to the effect… “Well it’s a good thing to make others laugh!” 

.

And so, these erring persons are, in reality, saying, “I don’t want all of Jesus, but only some of Jesus!”

JESUS NOT A JOKER!

.

After all, everybody understands that Jesus did not engage in joking. 

.

And aren’t we glad that Jesus was not joking? Don’t we rejoice that Jesus was not at all a joker?

.

So why do we think that Jesus wants us to be a joker? Why do we imagine that Jesus wants us to represent Him in that way? That makes no sense!

AMBASSADORS FOR CHRIST

2nd Corinthians 5:20

.

And so, by presenting yourself (or myself) in a joking manner to the world, I am, in essence preaching, “another Jesus” whom the Bible does not preach.http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-photo/jeastty/3/1303829593/mall-witnessing.jpg/tpod.html

.

But our goal is to present a 100% Jesus, and not a 90% Jesus.

.

And this matter of joking is only one area in which Christians are still in ignorance of God’s true standard.

.

Yes, there are many areas of life in which God’s people have been deceived by the world, and by “the god of this world”! (2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

The Church has not yet accepted Jesus, 100%.

BELIEVERS & “MAKE-BELIEVERS”

.

But the big difference between a true Believer and a mere pretender, the true Believer is striving to be totally Christlike, while the false brethren have no desire to become totally Christlike…

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Burgkmair_whore_babylon_color.jpg.

Listen… “Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eats, and wipes her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.” Proverbs 30:20

.

In other words, this above proverb is telling us that those who are willingly committing spiritual adultery, do not see anything wrong with being somewhat worldly. 

.

But the true Believer loathes his or her self because of our un-Christlikeness! And true Worshippers will not rest content, as long as we have even a trace of sin in our lives!

STILL THE DAY OF SALVATION

.

So the Good News in all this is that God is allowing us just enough time to repent of our world-loving ways, and return unto Him in contrition and humbleness and sorrow for our sins.

.

Listen… “and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations. And they shall know that I am the LORD,” Ezekiel 6:9, 10

.http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_198722/William-Brassey-Hole/The-sorrow-of-king-David

We have reached a day in which God is no longer winking at our ignorance about these matters.

.

And we must take to heart, what James says… “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God?…Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.” James 4:4, 8-10

.

And so, in the light of this above passage, we must persist to follow this kind of humbling of our hearts, until the day that God indeed lifts us up, no matter how long it takes!

GOD’S PEOPLE TAKEN CAPTIVE

.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 

.

The Pleiades: Mystery Babylon: Mother of Harlots

.

God has a people in Babylon. Yes, Mystery Babylon is the Mother of Harlots. The sketch to the left shows her riding this beast with 7 heads and 10 horns.

.Captive Angel Constellation

But in that spiritual city, there are those who still love God to a certain degree. And before the final plagues are poured out upon her, God has been and will continue to call His people out of her… “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her (Babylon), my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

.

And so in addition to The Pleiades appearing as the Harlot Mother, we also see this second depiction of The Pleiades as an angel, which symbolizes God’s people, walking the downward pathway to destruction. They must be called out of Babylon before it’s too late!
