End-Time Exodus, Part 3: “Overcoming The World!”

There have been a few wonderful ministries over the past decades. And some of these are still being broadcast over radio.

.

The problem is, that these past ministries were quite often designed for Christians living in spiritual Babylon, i.e., the world. And so, much of the advice on these broadcasts were mingled with some really worldly advice. And most of these had some glaring errors in the doctrines presented. 

.

It doesn’t mean that these Bible teachers were necessarily apostate, (though many of them were apostate). But God is testing us, to see if we love these fallible men more than we love Him and His Word!

.

And so, God allowed erroneous teachings to be mingled into the otherwise good and biblical teachings.

COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM

.TV: The Ultimate Mind-Control Device

Now in yesterday’s devotional (click here), one great secret to overcoming the world was discussed: clearing out the heart from all the ungodly graffiti which has been allowed to accumulate via all the modern media: television, magazines, novels, Internet, CD’s, radio, as well as unnecessary personal friendships with unbelievers.

.

Listen… “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” 2nd Corinthians 6:14, 17, 18

.

And as this above passage reveals, this kind of separation is pre-requisite to having God treat us as His children!

.

.

.

“THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND”

Romans 12:1, 2

.

But today’s devotional deals with the other half of the equation of how to win the battle of overcoming the world, and overcoming the flesh. And this half of the equation is that of replenishing the heart with the pure words of God! Yes, here we have the two-part process of emptying the heart of all worldly graffiti, and then replenishing it with the pure words of Christ!

.

Listen… “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His law doth he meditate day and night.” Psalm 1:1, 2

.

Notice this above passage from the very first Psalm encapsulates exactly what is being discussed in these two devotionals! To clear out all the rubbish, and to meditate (contemplate) upon Christ’s Word, day and night, is exactly what we are talking about in yesterday’s and today’s devotionals!

THE BATTLE BEFORE US

.

And so, let’s remember what Paul commands us to do…

.

“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” 2nd Corinthians 10:4-6

.

Yes, Paul has put into military terms, the victory of obedience! We are not to war with carnal weapons, but we are to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when our obedience is fulfilled!

.

And so, just as we have discussed, Paul is telling us what the battle is all about: complete victory over the thoughts of the heart! Herein lies the secret to complete Christian victory!

THIRD PART: GOD’S PART

But though this is the two-fold duty of each and every Christian, there is a third part. Yes, this third part is the Lord’s part (even though He helps us do our two-part responsibility victoriously).

.

And tomorrow’s devotional will speak about this third part of the recipe for Christian victory over the world, and over the flesh!

Orion The Good Shepherd 

(Click on this above title link for more in-depth study)

.01.17.20132

Here is a brand new Or01.17.20133ion. This was first seen in December, 2012. With the addition of a single star, Theta Geminorum (the left hand of the Castor twin of Gemini), this little star converts Orion the Reaper’s sickle (left), into the hook of a shepherd’s rod & staff; now making the 5th personality of Orion, Orion the Good Shepherd. The sketch to the left is Orion the Reaper. But now, with the addition of that little star, which is commonly known as the left hand of the Castor Twin in the Constellation Gemini, the sketch to the lower right shows the result, which is Orion, The Good Shepherd.

.

.

Theta Geminorum is a class A3, 4th magnitude star, which means it is much fainter than either Castor or Pollux. And yet, this is the little star at the very tip of the hook of Orion, the Good Shepherd’s rod & staff. But faint as it may be, together with its other Gemini stars, this shepherd’s rod & staff presents a giant concept, which is a very  wonderful and beautiful Bible truth: namely, that Jesus is the Good Shepherd, as it is written…

“A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want (lack). He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters…I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:1, 2, 4
