What is expected of us is clear, there is ONE way and ONE way ONLY. There is NO half way, NO part way, NO almost way, NO I’m doing the best I can way and absolutely NO my way. It is His way ONLY and it ALWAYS has been. We need to face the truth about who ARE His and who are not.
Luke 6:46-49 46 “But why do you call Me ‘Master, Master,’ and do not do what I say? 47 “Everyone who is coming to Me, and is hearing My words and is doing them, I shall show you whom he is like: 48 “He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock. And when a flood came, the stream burst against that house, but was unable to shake it, for it was founded on the rock. 49 “But the one hearing and not doing, is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream burst, and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”
It is MORE than hearing…it is MORE than believing…it is MORE than saying. Abba tells those who are His to be set apart to Him. They are to be as He is…holy, set apart, living their lives in a way that shows that in everything that they do. A difference…a distinct and noticeable difference between those who are His and the world. When YHVH laid out the terms of His covenant to Israel they replied, all that YHVH has spoken, we shall do.
Matthew 7:21-23 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. 22 “Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ 23 “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!’
Not all who call on Him will enter in. Complete surrender and the emptying of ourselves is what it takes. Purifying, cleansing, removing every last bit of stubborn pride and willful arrogance. We MUST surrender ourselves to His will and His way. Those ARE the people He is looking for… Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
