Which Christian will fall soon?
A new spiritual law from 748 BC
Hi beloved of the LORD—King of all Saints.
Lots of ‘believers’…
Confess alarm, doubt and disillusionment about their faith.
Skeptical of key Bible truths. Confused over basic facts.
Saying evil is good and good evil etc.
Just over there.
On the other side of the Church aisle…
Day by day, lowly believing Christians eyes are opening ever wider by the Holy Spirit.
They know what’s going on. Their prayers get answered. More and more.
And they’re realising with greater and greater joy…
That the LORD is FOR THEM! Yay :)
Nothing’s taking them by surprise either.
All while their sophisticated, skeptical brethren miss what’s right before their eyes.
Those who don’t understand how GOD works nor His times or seasons.
Because for these folk the ‘Seer’* Hosea prophesied intense doom 748 years before Jesus.
At the time Hosea was warning Israel of GOD’s wrath to come by invasion from the North.
Thousands of years later we discover a new SPIRITUAL LAW here. A divine principle, tucked away in Hosea 4:14.
A law applying to Christians as well.
For in it the prophet reveals the secret of exactly who will fall.
“The people that do not understand shall fall.”
Hosea 4:14b KJV
So how do we escape being swept away like these?
How do we not fall?
We understand overcomer.
“Though it cost all you have, get understanding.”
Proverbs 4:7 NIV
Jesus warns it will cost much though…
“I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire...
So that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen... and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see.”
Revelation 3:18 ESV
Jesus’s eye salve helps us see correctly
Once while working for a Christian Ministry I slept on the floor beside my computer in the HQ offices.
There was no room elsewhere for me.
Some staff said I was mistreated.
I saw it differently.
Because a while later, the founder kindly suggested I use his study at night because a bed was there. And so I accepted.
Here’s the thing.
He had an amazing anointing.
And I saw it as a privilege to sleep in his study. To absorb the atmosphere of heaven which saturated his hideaway.
Contemplating how this man of GOD communed alone with Yeshua.
How he thought.
The ancient oak leather topped desk where he wrote. Where he prayed.
This was all bounty for me. And I do feel the LORD rewarded me during this time with a deeper anointing from the Holy Spirit.
Let’s finish up.
Today we uncovered a big key.
Understanding is the secret to avoid falling.
Or put another way…
This WhatsApp from a dear friend (non Christian btw) arrived last night...
May the Spirit of GOD help you see.
And help you get understanding in three key areas*…
How to put off the old nature and put on the new nature (in partnership with the Holy Spirit).
How to walk this world in white, keeping yourself unspotted (James 1:27 KJV)
How to overcome the enemy to both drive him out and keep him out.
So that as judgement hits (which is beginning even now) we may escape His wrath.
Dig in deep saint, for we will be called away shortly.
“For truly, I say to you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see... and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.”
Matthew 13:17 ESV
Praise GOD, we see Him overcomer. Cool eh! :)
Take up your cross saint.
*Seer: He who sees. i.e. A prophet. Or put another way. One who understands what GOD reveals to them about the future. And one who discerns times accurately.
“You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?”
Luke 12:56 NKJV
*These three key areas are covered in these chapters (Ch 10, 13)…
*Remember saint, holiness is beauty
“Therefore, having these promises, beloved... let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit... perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”
2 Corinthians 7:1 ESV
(Very appropriate within the context of what the Seer saw in Hosea 4:6—Hosea 5:6)…
