Why do people flirt with YHVH? They act as if they are committed to Him, but hold back. They profess to be His, but deep down inside they reserve themselves. It is very dangerous to play games with YHVH. He is looking for those who are committed to Him in every way and NOT those who just give Him lip service.
There is a HUGE difference in professing to be His and in showing yourself to be His. Yes, there is a cost…you MUST give up everything else and surrender yourself fully and completely to Him. No more pursuing your own desires and wishes. Many people truly do NOT understand what it means to surrender completely to Him. Sometimes we have to have a Job experience to get things into perspective and realize who our provider and sustainer truly is.
If we love Him and if we truly want to dwell with Him for eternity in His Kingdom, why are we not pursuing that goal with all of our energy, resources, heart, soul and mind? Where you spend your time and energy, is what is truly important to you. What if YHVH took everything away? What would you do then? Where would your faith be then.
Somehow we seem to think our lives are going to continue on as normal and when Yeshua comes we will just walk away from our daily routine and enter the Kingdom of YHVH. We are warned we are going to be tested…Yeshua says that he chastens every ONE that He loves. It is those who OVERCOMES who He gives to sit with Him on His Throne! What is there to overcome if we are not challenged, tested and proven?
If we are NOT ready to give up everything, every possession, every desire, every wish, every material thing, our own self will, our bodies and our minds, and surrender it ALL to Him…then we are NOT ready…NOT even CLOSE!
Are you playing a game with YHVH? Are you pretending to be His and telling yourself you are His, when you are really holding back and pursuing what you want to do? Even if you think you are completely surrendered to Him, you better look again. What are you holding on to? Are you REALLY relying on Him for provision?
Everything you have could be gone tomorrow and then what? What will it take for people to truly give themselves over to Him in every way? If He has to take everything away and strip us naked, then so be it. Todah Abba, todah! Teach us to surrender completely and to rely on You for ALL things.
Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.””
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
