Galatians 4:19
So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, 'We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.' "Luke 17:10

You Have No Room for My Word

John 8:34-37New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know you are Abraham’s descendants. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word.

Only the Lord Jesus Christ can set you free from slavery to the sinful nature of the Devil in you. The only reason why there is no room for God's word to be formed in you is that; the sinful nature of the Devil has fully claimed ownership over it and you are fully its slave. All the rooms of your heart are filled with it. You could only do evil as a result and never could for a moment have good thoughts or desires in your heart. The sinful nature of the Devil have fully overcome you and therefore, all your actions are only misdeeds of that evil nature.

You can be freed from the sinful nature of the Devil in you and it will only be by the Word being formed in you. That Word is Jesus Christ, who is Word made flesh so that all flesh that obeys the Word will become like the Word with all His divine natures formed in them. Our sonship to God can only come through Christ our Lord because He is the Firstborn of God. All those who love and obey Christ will be re-created in His likeness. If we belong to Him, we will be like Him in everyway. If we don't, we will look like Adam with the Enemy of God filled in him.

Jeremiah 22:13-17
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness, his upper rooms by injustice, making his countrymen work for nothing, not paying them for their labor. He says, ‘I will build myself a great palace with spacious upper rooms.’ So he makes large windows in it, panels it with cedar and decorates it in red. “Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar? Did not your father have food and drink? He did what was right and just, so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy, and so all went well.
Is that not what it means to know me?” declares the LORD. “But your eyes and your heart
are set only on dishonest gain, on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.”

Working your Land with Diligent Hands

Hebrews 6:7-8
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.

What you produce out of your faith in Christ will determine what you would deserve in the end- blessings or curses of God. You have to carefully decide how to make every effort towards full Christformation in you. Without Christformation in you, I do not see how you could be useful to those whom it is farmed. If there isn't Christformation growing in you, there will be thorns and thistles growing within you then. Thorns and thistles grow inside when you obey the sinful nature of the Devil in you. When you obey all that Christ had commanded, Christformation will grow in you.If the soil is a good soil, it will absorb the rain that the Heavenly Father provides. He provides us God the Holy Spirit who leads and guides us towards full Christformation. You have to allow God the Holy Spirit fully into your life before you could work out your salvation with fear and trembling. How will the fear and trembling come; except through God's word. God's word comes as a seed and grows in you. God's Word is Jesus Christ our Lord.

John 1:14New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Only the Lord Jesus Christ can bring this fear of the Lord into you. This fear of the Lord comes as a seed and grows in you as you obey God's word. The Word became flesh so that every flesh that believes,welcomes and obeys this Word into his life will become more and more like the Word. The Word will be formed in you through your obedience to that Word revealed to you by God's Spirit. God the Holy Spirit reveals the divine natures of Christ that is to be formed in you. Through your obedience to Him, they will be formed in you.You have to work your land with diligence with the help of God the Holy Spirit. You cannot work out Christformation in you with your own strength. You have to obey His leading and guidance at every step of the way towards full Christformation in you.

The Reward for Waiting

Psalm 130:5-7
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope. My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning.
O Israel, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.

There are three kinds of examples of those who are rewarded for waiting patiently:

1) The hardworking farmer who waits for his crops.

2) The pregnant mother who waits patiently to deliver her child.

3) The watchman who waits patiently for the morning to come.

Have you ever thought why full redemption is with the Lord? Could it mean that there is a half or a third of redemption, or even a quarter? Is there a 30% or 60% or 100% of redemption with God? Could the child be aborted or could it not survive the pregnancy at all? What could make the child ready for a safe delivery? Who or what could make the difference in all of these end-results? What relevance does Christformation have with these end results?

The farmer and the pregnant mother could alter the end-results of their waiting by being careless or foolish because the end-results would still depend on human effort. Half of the help is from God and the other half is the effort of the farmer or the pregnant mother. Whereas, the breaking of the day is totally in the hands of Lord.The faithfulness of the morning is in His hands. He causes the sun to shine on the earth and calls it, day. He causes the moon to shine faithfully to call it, night. But the watchman could fall asleep and yet the morning would come. He could still be caught sleeping even when the sun had arisen. The watchman who watches faithfully will welcome the faithful breaking of day.

Full redemption is full Christformation in you. If you are foolish and careless about Christformation in you, even though you had believed in Christ, you may not have full redemption in you. You must wake-up from your sleep and slumber to 'watch and wait' for full Christformation in you. Like the 'Wise virgins' in the parable of the 'foolish and wise virgins' in Matthew chapter 25, you must do all you can to be ready with full Christformation in you before Christ our Lord, the Bridegroom returns to earth. You must be like the hardworking farmer and the caring mother who is pregnant to see the end-result of full Christformation in you. You must be careful and wise about Christformation in you and not be found sleeping when He comes.

He wants to give you full redemption or full Christformation in you. Do you really want this? Are you making every effort towards full Christformation in you before its too late?You cannot afford to be careless about full Christformation in you. You have to sow with tears before you could reap full Christformation in you with eternal joy. You have to obey the leading of God's Spirit in you for full Christformation in you. You should not be careless about this, if you truly desire full Christformation in you.

Matthew 5:6
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

God's Powerhouse.

Hebrews 1:3
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

God's powerhouse is the Lord Jesus Christ and He is at God's right hand now. There is no other powerhouse in heaven, on earth or even underneath the earth. Everything starts from there and everything is for Him.Thats how God the Father had made it to be. Without Him there would be nothing existing. All of God's authority has been placed on Him. There is no one more powerful than Him besides God the Father in heaven, on earth, or even underneath the earth. Who can come against this powerhouse?

Romans 8:37-39
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

The love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord is one of the greatest power that fills God's right hand. The relationship between God and His right hand is the love of God. The love of God cannot be compared to anything else in this universe. Only this love of God can defeat all evil and The Devil. The love of God is something that can never be found in the Devil or the demons. It will be imposible to find any in them or those who do not belong to Christ our Lord. The love of God is one of the greatest divine nature of Christ and the Heavenly Father. For us who believe and love Christ, it is shed abroad in our hearts by God the Holy Spirit. This divine nature of Christ must be formed in us. We must obey the leading of God the Holy Spirit within us in order that this divine nature of Christ be formed in us. Once formed in us no one can separate us from that love of God in Christ Jesus. Thats why the Lord said, if you love me, you will obey Me or my commamdments. Do not ever expect to find this love of God in those who hate Christ our Lord. You will never find in them. Those who hate Christ will never obey His commandments and for such people, God has this to say:

John 14:24
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.

If you were to ask me which is the best place to be at all times, I would say waitng and watching at the doorway to God's powerhouse. That will be at God's right hand.That's the best place place to be at anytime of the day! You may ask, what is there? Let's look at this verse below.

Proverbs 8:34
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.

It will be not easy for anyone to "wait and watch" at the doorway of God's powerhouse which is at God's right hand. He must be desiring to listen to God and His Christ carefully. Anyway, 'listen' here means obey. Blessed is everyone who obeys Christ and all that He had commanded us. This will bring him or her to God's right hand when he or she chooses to 'wait and watch' at the doorway of God's powerhouse to hear what He has to say to us. He is the Great Shepherd and we must be able to hear what He is saying to us all the time. Didn't the apostle Paul advise us to do the same in the verse below.

Colossians 3:1-3
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.

The Unfolding of Your Words Gives Light

Psalm 119:129-136
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Your statutes are wonderful; therefore I obey them. The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands. Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name. Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Redeem me from the oppression of men, that I may obey your precepts. Make your face shine upon your servant and teach me your decrees. Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.

Obeying God is different from obeying man. God's decrees and statutes are righteous all the time while man's may shift. Man's decrees and statutes may be kind on one day and cruel on another. Man are always experimenting with what they know but not so with God. He does not need to experiment on humans. God never changes but man do, because of the sinful nature of the Devil in them. We should fully obey God's statutes and decrees and never should we obey the sinful nature of the Devil in us. For example, If God says, love is patient, you have to obey and be patient by trusting in the power of God's Spirit in you. He is there to produce patience in you when you obey Him. If God says love is kind, you have to be kind by the power of God's Spirit in you, not by your own strength though.

When God unfolds His words to us, we will not be in the dark about His decrees and statutes. What He wants us to do will be made clear to us when we obey Him. Step by step He will lead and guide us with the help of God the Holy Spirit in us. We need not fear the power of sin when we fully obey Him. Sin cannot rule over us. The Devil would want to rule over us by the power of sin. Sin can never rule over you, when you obey God's word. Men or systems of man can only oppress you when you do not fully obey God. Remember, the Old Testament 70 year captivity to the Babylonians? This should serve as a reminder to us.

2 Corinthians 10:3-5
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ

We know that evildoers will not see the light. For them, darkness will seem as light, as they delight themselves in wickedness. This will be their delusion that will eventually destroy them. The wicked are denied this light that comes from the unfolding of God's words. God's Son who is the Word of God reveals all things of the Heavenly Father to us through His Spirit in us. The wicked who do delight in doing evil will be denied of this light. Their 'upraised arm' is their hands that delight to do evil. God will break this arms and render them powerless before the righteous of the Lord.

Job 38:15
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
The wicked are denied their light, and their upraised arm is broken.

He Spoke to Them from the Pillar of Cloud

Psalm 99:6-7
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the LORD and he answered them. He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.

God does not speak with no message in it. If He speaks there is surely a timely message that will be useful to those who hear it. God speaks His statutes and decrees. His statutes and decrees are to be obeyed by those who hear it. His statutes and decrees are not for exhibitional purpose. They are to be obeyed by those whom He had intended it for. God does not simply speak. He speaks when there is someone genuinely calling upon the Lord. He answers them and speaks to them. He does not speak when there is no genuineness of calling upon Him.

Today, God speaks through His beloved Son who is the Word of God. It is the demonstration of the power of God the Holy Spirit in you, if you could hear His voice. That's the Great Shepherd's voice. When His sheep hear it they will follow Him.

John 10:14-16
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me— just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep.I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.

John 10:3-6
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” Jesus used this figure of speech, but they did not understand what he was telling them.

In fact, disobedience to the Lord will lead you to the stranger. The stranger is out there to mislead you down the path of destruction. Are you carefully listening to the Great Shepherd's voice and obeying Him? Following Him is obeying Him till the end. The sheep who obey the Great Shepherd's voice and follow His leading will run away from the stranger, meaning that, he will run away from obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in him and follow the Great Shepherd towards full Christformation in him. Why did Moses, Aaron and Samuel keep the statutes and decrees that God gave them. Because they too, desired Christformation in them. They knew that obeying God's statutes and decrees will produce Christformation in them, even though they had not seen Him. They had only heard of Him and seen the semblance of Him in all that they had experienced.

Would the Lord Jesus Christ Do This?

2 Samuel 11:15-16
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
In it he wrote, “Put Uriah in the front line where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so he will be struck down and die.” So while Joab had the city under siege, he put Uriah at a place where he knew the strongest defenders were.

No, He would not do this as there was no sin in Jesus Christ our Lord even though He was tempted just as you and I are tempted. King David was different. Even though he loved God, he still sinned. In King David's life, one sin led to another. He was bound by the sinful nature of the Devil in him. Sometimes we claim that we are serving the Lord but actually we have been only serving the sinful nature of the Devil in us, just like King David.

Read the whole chapter of that passage and you will understand what I am saying here.
King David was pointing to the coming King. You will read from the whole chapter how God viewed the sin of King David. He was tempted by the sight of the bathing Bathsheba. He fell to that temptation and commited adultery with her. One man is to have only one wife. Remember, one Eve was created for one Adam but of course, with the sinful nature of the Devil in them, they weren't satisfied. Eve saw that the life that is not satisfied with one was more pleasurable. More pleasing to the sinful nature of the Devil in them. King David did not stop there. As soon as he had received the news that Bathsheba was made pregnant through him, he planned for the murder of Bathsheba's husband, Uriah. He made Joab as the accomplice in this premeditated murder. Uriah died being in the front line of war.In this way, they would not have to account for his death. How clever? Not so!

But, God saw all these and brought His swift judgement on David, Bathsheba and Joab.
Just because you are placed in power over others, does not mean that you could do whatever you liked and get away with it. That whatever 'you liked' might not be what God liked. That whatever you liked came from the sinful nature of the Devil in you.
So, who have you been serving, God or the Devil? King David knew that he needed the King of kings in his life, The Lord Jesus Christ to save him from being in bondage to the sinful nature of the Devil in him, after he was judged for the horrible sin he had committed.He cried , repented and sought to be freed from the sinful nature of the Devil in him. So, he became a singer expressing his sorrows in a song to the Lord.

Psalm 38
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
A psalm of David. A petition.

O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. For your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me. Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; my bones have no soundness because of my sin. My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly. I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning. My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body. I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart. All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you. My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes. My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away. Those who seek my life set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they plot deception. I am like a deaf man, who cannot hear, like a mute, who cannot open his mouth; I have become like a man who does not hear, whose mouth can offer no reply. I wait for you, O LORD; you will answer, O Lord my God. For I said, “Do not let them gloat or exalt themselves over me when my foot slips.” For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me. I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin.Many are those who are my vigorous enemies; those who hate me without reason are numerous.Those who repay my good with evil slander me when I pursue what is good.
O LORD, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God. Come quickly to help me,
O Lord my Savior.

Who will rise up for Me?

Psalm 94:16
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?

Will all those who fear the Lord rise up against those who don't, for their's and the good of others around them? It's about time for us to rise up against the wicked and take an open stand against evildoers. God frustrates all the evil plans and schemes of the wicked. He stops evildoers from spreading sinful living among men. Why would He call upon all those who love and obey Him to rise up and make a stand against those who hate Him? Because, He himself is against them.

1 Samuel 2:8-10
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes and has them inherit a throne of honor. “For the foundations of the earth are the LORD’s; upon them he has set the world. He will guard the feet of his saints, but the wicked will be silenced in darkness. “It is not by strength that one prevails; those who oppose the LORD will be shattered. He will thunder against them from heaven; the LORD will judge the ends of the earth.

Do not let it ever cross your mind that God is not doing anything about the wicked of the earth. It will be like saying, He isn't going to do anything about the Devil and the fallen angels. He will surely bring to a drastic end all His enemies.God allows time for everything. If He allows the rain, He will allow sunshine too. You will experience times of refreshings and times of dryness on this earth. God allows the wicked to live as though they own the earth for a while. He will observe to what extent they claim ownership of this world even though it isn't theirs. They did not create it. They cannot maintain it but they claim ownership over it. How silly, when they can't even create a particle of sand! Those who fear the Lord will appear like 'lamb for the slaughter' in the eyes of the wicked but not for long. We will live to see their punishment that will come from the Lord.

Psalm 91:7-8
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
