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

Christformation in the Words of John the Baptist

Luke 3:7-18
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
John said to the crowds coming out to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” “What should we do then?” the crowd asked. John answered, “The man with two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same.” Tax collectors also came to be baptized. “Teacher,” they asked, “what should we do?” “Don’t collect any more than you are required to,” he told them. Then some soldiers asked him, “And what should we do?” He replied, “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely—be content with your pay.” The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Christ.John answered them all, “I baptize you with water. But one more powerful than I will come, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” And with many other words John exhorted the people and preached the good news to them.

Christformation is the gathering of the wheat into His barn. "Gathering the wheat into the barn" is the formation of the divine nature of Christ in the born again spirits of those called, chosen and faithful believers of His. "Burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire" is the putting to death of the sinful nature of the Devil by the power of God's Spirit in those who believe, love and obey Christ. But before that fully occurs, the treshing floor will be cleared by the Lord Jesus Christ where God the Holy Spirit will bring in the necessary conviction of guilt of sin. Without repentance of those sins there will be no Christformation. Christformation is fruit in keeping with repentance. Christformation does not occur unless you start putting to death the misdeeds of the sinful nature of the Devil in you.

Did you notice the repeated question "What should we do?" Normally, this is one question a truly repenting sinner will ask. The one general answer to that would be; give up pleasing the sinful nature of the Devil in you and start working out your salvation by obeying all that Christ had commanded.In this way, Christformation could occur in you by the power of God the Holy Spirit who dwells in you.

Letters from God Explained by the Holy Spirit on Earth.

2 Timothy 3:16-17
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

God the Holy Spirit was sent to this earth after the Lord Jesus Christ had ascended to the right hand-side of the heavenly Father. He is there making intercession for us so that we too like Him will obey God's Spirit in us.In this way, Christformation will occur in us.He brings God's fresh word to us. We do not have to receive a letter from Him everyday telling us what to do.That's a foolish and stubborn way of looking at the ways of God. God the Holy Spirit takes the words of Christ who represented the heavenly Father perfectly to us and reminds us of what He had said. We only need to obey Him. If you are truly a man of God. as it says in the verses above, you would want to be thoroughly equipped through the power of God's word in Christ. How do we get equipped? Obedience to God's word is training in righteousness.

The Old and the New Testament both have messages of this training. Do not be tricked into believing that this training will come in one soft gentle way. Sometimes, it may come as a rebuke and other times words that seek to correct your ways and thinking. Sometimes, in the form of teachings. You must accept them as they come from God. They might convict you of your sins. God will require obedience from you from that rebuke, correction, teaching or training in righteousness. How you accept and respond to them will produce fruit that meets your repentance which will be Christformation in you. You will start putting to death the misdeeds of the sinful nature of the Devil in you, one by one.As you empty yourself, you need to fill that empty house with Christformation. You will not be able do this on your own. God the Holy Spirit will demonstrate God's power in you. The many types of fruit of the divine nature of Christ will be formed in you through your obedience to all that Christ had commanded.

Because of Me...Says the LORD

Matthew 5:11-12
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

It is better to identify yourself with Jesus Christ our Lord than anyone else. He represents the heavenly Father. God the Holy Spirit reminds us about this to us today. It is better to suffer for His name than suffer for anything else. There is no eternal worth in suffering for anything else besides Him. No one could suffer for a friend like He did. No one could suffer for a brother like He did. No shepherd could suffer for a sheep like He did. No bridegroom could suffer like He did for his future bride.It is worth working hard all my life for His divine nature to be formed fully in me.

Matthew 10:21-22
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved

The Things of God against The Things of Man

Matthew 16:21-23
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
From that time on Jesus began to explain to his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and on the third day be raised to life. Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. “Never, Lord!” he said. “This shall never happen to you!” Jesus turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.”

Just imagine this for a minute! One moment, the Lord Jesus Christ was saying to Peter, "the words you confessed through your mouth about Me is what I am going to use to built my church upon" and at another moment, just few minutes away, He said to Peter, "Get behind me, you Satan". What does it tell you here. You can use the things of ordinary men to oppose the things of God. Peter was just being human here.

Peter just felt that The Lord Jesus Christ shouldn't do the will of God because if He did, He will be ill-treated by wicked men and women. The Lord Jesus Christ counter rebuked Peter with, "don't be a stumbling block for God's will to happen in the lives of many who are in bondage to sin and the sinful nature of the Devil". "Let me free them at all costs of my life," He said more to Peter.Don't stand in my way. Think what God has in mind not what sinful men and women think about this whole thing. Like Peter, anyone can be deceived easily, right? No matter how spiritual you potray yourself in the eyes of others, you can still be deceived in your thoughts because you haven't put to death the sinful nature of the Devil in you completely yet. So, be careful of what you say now, it will be held against you one day before God. Fear God and not man!

Seven Deadly Sins of the Sinful Nature of The Devil In You

Matthew 15:19
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

1) Evil thoughts

2) Murder

3) Adultery

4) Sexual Immorality

5) Theft

6) False Testimony

7) Slander

Matthew 7:3-5
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Many other sins committed that are not enlisted here springs out from these seven deadly sins. Its like frogs giving birth to tadpoles. Sin keeps multiplying if you do not put to death the sinful nature of the Devil in you. If you practise one sin, soon you will be gradually defiled by all other sins, one by one, if you do not turn away from it by repenting.

The Gnashing of Teeth Has Begun

Luke 13:27-29
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“But he will reply, ‘I don’t know you or where you come from. Away from me, all you evildoers!’ “There will be weeping there, and gnashing of teeth, when you see Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrown out. People will come from east and west and north and south, and will take their places at the feast in the kingdom of God.

Symbolically, the gnashing of teeth has begun!Those who refuse Christformation in themselves will start gnashing their teeth now. They will ask, do we have to feast on Christ alone and nothing else? Feasting on Christ will bring about the formation of Christ's divine nature in us. As a result, we will start putting to death the sinful nature of the Devil in us.

John 6:55-57
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.

You have to be actively feeding on Christ or else there wouldn't be any Christformation in you.

Superbly Well Organised Thieves. (SWOT)

John 10:10
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Theft is a very deadly sin from the sinful nature of the Devil in you, if you let it control you. Do you know that The Devil(Satan) and all the demons on this earth are superbly well organised thieves? They only come as thieves to steal, kill and destroy, meaning that they come to deprive you of your rightful living and your life-time savings.What you have saved will all be taken, if you aren't careful.They do not think of your well-being but only theirs. Selfish beings who only survive at the expense of others. They can't do anything better with their lives. This is what they do best. But watch the way they approach you. They will appear as angels of light. As agents of light and they appear well organised. All they have in their mind is to destroy you in the end. They will go all the way to deceive and trap you. This has been going on for a long time now.For six thousand years or so. Imagine how well organised to deceive can they be?

Luke 12:32-34
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Keep on sowing Christformation in you with the indispensable help of God the Holy Spirit. Do not give up. Be ready for the thief at all times. They may devour you for now but they will be devoured forever by their own sins.Destruction is waiting for the thief. It is at his doorstep, he does not know it. Set your eyes on things above. Set your eyes on Christ the author and finisher of a successful Christformation in you. Do not let the thief deceive you too. Be watchful always. The day has arrived for the thief to be judged. You will see it happen before your very eyes.The Lord Jesus Christ came to give you full Christformation in you but the Devil is here to steal the formation of Christ in you and to stunt, kill or destroy Christformation in you. The Devil does not want you to have the divine nature of Christ formed in you so that you will continue obeying his sinful nature in you. Be wiser, o flock of Christ, be wiser than the thief! (Much more to come...)

We Treat The Less Honorable With Special Honor

1 Corinthians 12:23
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty,

If you do not want to be looked down upon, do not look-down on others. If you do not want to be despised, do not despise others in your heart. As though God is blind, for he is not an idol. He can see who we are, what we do and what exactly we think of others in our hearts.Do not think high and mighty of yourself, assuming you have become more powerful than others and no one can shake you or your position now. God can! At the rate it is going, I think even God has to beg at your feet. Am i right?

But, God has His time of vengeance. He says, "make room for my vengeance". I will answer them at the right time and they will be astounded at what I can do, even though they have grown tall, lofty and proud looking down on others. Wait till they know that I AM in a better place to look down on them the way they look down on you.

You Through His Poverty Might Become Rich

2 Corinthians 8:9
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.

No one is like the Lord Jesus Christ, absolutely no one! Everything was made by Him, for Him by the Father and yet He made Himself a nobody on earth. He did not mind it when no one recognised Him. He walked the dusty streets, made Himself a no one where he even had no place to rest His head. All these He did just to resist sinful living even to the point of shedding His blood for our sins. O what Matchless One! O what Righteous One! O what Holy One! No one is like Him. Following the perfect example of the Lord Jesus Christ as The Apostle of God's flock, apostle Paul echoed this with his own life to the believers in Corinth as in the passage below.

1 Corinthians 4:8-13
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Already you have all you want! Already you have become rich! You have become kings—and that without us! How I wish that you really had become kings so that we might be kings with you! For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men. We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored! To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally treated, we are homeless. We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we have become the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world.

You may ask yourself, why the Lord Jesus Christ had to become poor in order to make you rich? This is one thing that ordinary people do not do. People who are rich do not commonly do this today. In fact, many would not be brave enough to do this. Even among Christians, many who are poor dream to be rich but who wants to be poor when he or she is already rich? Why was the Lord ready to become poor to make us rich when He himself was rich from the beginning? Why did the Lord Jesus Christ need to be poor in the first place? Why did He reject the offer of the Devil for Him to be rich in this world in the eyes of everyone when He was directly tempted of the Devil? A lot of answers needed here, right? No!

Philippians 2:5-8
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross!

Based on the verses above in Philippians, If the Lord Jesus Christ was rich and if He had enough money, it would have been easy for Him to buy over the the rulers,governors,the Sanhedrin, high priests, Roman soldiers and so on. After all these people in power were the ones who bought over Judas Iscariot with the offer of a bribe. If they give bribes don't you think they take bribes too? In order for the authorities to kill Him on the cross, He had to appear poor, unable to defend Himself in their eyes. Or else, why would they have jeered at Him saying, "King of the Jews, try saving yourself from us". They considered themselves more powerful than the Lord Jesus Christ because He appeared poor, rejected, despised and forsaken before their very clouded eyes. He needed to appear that way.

Doesn't this draw similarities to the story of Matthew 25: 31-46. How the wicked did not recognise who was asking for their consideration, sympathy ,care, concern, justice, mercy and compassion? If they did it to the Master, won't they do it again to His servants too? In that story, didn't the wicked deserve the merciless punishment meted out? I think they did!

I Will Keep Boasting About My Weaknesses and Not My Strengths

2 Corinthians 12:7-10
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations, there was given me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

The power of Christ resting on me is what is important. But, when does this power of Christ rest on me. Only when I am ready to die to the sinful nature of the Devil in me. Only when I am ready to put to death the sinful nature of the Devil in me. Only then Christformation begins in me. Christformation is the demonstration of God's power in me. How does sufferings help me towards Christformation? Sufferings help me to put to death the evil desires and passions of the sinful nature in me. Do we have a verse or passage in the Bible that speaks about this? Yes....

1 Peter 4:1-2
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin. As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God.

Holding Firmly Till The End The Confidence

Hebrews 3:13-15
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. We have come to share in Christ if we hold firmly till the end the confidence we had at first. As has just been said:
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

What do you encourage one another to do? To "carry your cross daily and follow Christ" and not someone else or your own self-will. Following your own self-will is the same as following the Devil. Following the Devil is obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in you. This is what you are told to encourage one another with; to stop obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in you from the start of your walk with Him. You do not just "hold firmly to your confidence you had at first" by continuing to obey the sinful nature of the Devil in you. That is not what is said here. It is said; "so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness". You will have Christformation in you, only if you hold(carry) your cross and follow Christ faithfully living a life of obedience to Him at all times. This is what we are to encourage one another in Christ and not just let them go in the way of sin's deceitfulness. It is very deceitful to continue obeying the sinful nature of the Devil in you but at the same time keep claiming you belong to Jesus Christ our Lord. If you belong to Christ, you should obey Him fully and not sometimes Christ and at other times the sinful nature of the Devil in you. You are only deceiving yourself for you cannot deceive God.

Galatians 6:7-10
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Do not harden your hearts in wanting to obey the sinful nature of the Devil in you. Do not give up obeying Christ and everything He had commanded us to do. Do not do anything He has not asked us to do but instead do everything He has commanded us to do. Let's obey Him and let's not obey the passions and urges of the sinful nature of the Devil in us. Lets put it to death with the help of God the Holy Spirit who dwells and fills us. Lets be overcomers of the sinful nature of the Devil in us just like The Lord Jesus Christ overcame all the power of the Devil while on earth. Lets follow Christ our Shepherd and not follow our own self-will, the will of others or even the will of the Devil who urges you to obey the sinful nature of the Devil in you. Lets do God's will on earth!

Only God Could Weigh You on His Scales

Daniel 5:27
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.

God weighs our thoughts,motives and actions on His weighing scales and decides what to do with us.Sometimes He sends out a warning that you are being weighed on His scales.We can claim we are right in doing this and that but He is the one who weighs every actions of men and women and decides what to do with them.Only He knows what we are up to and what could correct our ways.

Daniel 5:18-21
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“O king, the Most High God gave your father Nebuchadnezzar sovereignty and greatness and glory and splendor. Because of the high position he gave him, all the peoples and nations and men of every language dreaded and feared him. Those the king wanted to put to death, he put to death; those he wanted to spare, he spared; those he wanted to promote, he promoted; and those he wanted to humble, he humbled. But when his heart became arrogant and hardened with pride, he was deposed from his royal throne and stripped of his glory. He was driven away from people and given the mind of an animal; he lived with the wild donkeys and ate grass like cattle; and his body was drenched with the dew of heaven, until he acknowledged that the Most High God is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and sets over them anyone he wishes.

It is God's scales and only He can weigh you on His scales, no man can! Only He knows what is found lacking in you. No one else! It wouldn't be accurate either, if someone else weighs your actions. God is the only one who can do that. He rewards everyone according to what they have done. We may feel that what we are doing is right and everyone else is wrong but it is God who weighs our motives and ways.

Proverbs 16:1-2
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the reply of the tongue. All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD.

Eternal Dwellings

Luke 16:8-10
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light. I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.

Do you use people around you to get wealth or do you use wealth to get people around you? What has got earthly wealth to do with our eternal dwellings? The one thing you must consider before you answer that question is that; one day that wealth, no matter how much you have will be gone from you. You will no longer own them. What you have left after that is what counts.

Matthew 16:25-27
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.

Christformation in you is your eternal treasure in heaven. On this earth now, Christformation is formed in jars of clay. The jars of clay will be broken through physical death and judged at the coming of Christ and the coming judgment to see how much Christformation is found in them. It will show how much you have obeyed Christ.

Be As Shrewd As Snakes....

Matthew 10:16
New International Version (NIV)
“I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves.

We see here that the Lord Jesus Christ is warning you about two different kinds of people on this earth. Yes, there are only two kinds of people. If you are not a sheep, you are a wolve. He also tells how you should respond to wolve-like people if you are His sheep whom He has called out of this world. To react to wolves if you are the sheep, you must know about two other kinds of animals- snakes and doves.

Snakes hiss, so must you hiss back at them. Do not be afraid of them if they are snakes. If they hiss at you, you must know how to hiss back at them. If you remain quiet, they would want to strike at you or swallow you up. You must never let this happen. They are meant to be trampled by our feet because the Lord Jesus had already crushed the chief-snake's (serpent's) head. Only those who truly know that the serpent's head already been crushed by the Lord Jesus Christ will trample the present snakes around them especially the real venomous ones. The only thing is that, these days you can't really tell the difference, but if you truly belong to Jesus Christ our Lord and know that the Lord Jesus is more powerful than the chief-serpent which is the Devil, then you would be able to recognise the snakes around you.

The problem is, many live lives as though the chief-serpent is stronger than the Lord Jesus Christ but they still shamelessly claim that they belong to Christ. We take the example of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. When the hypocritical pharisees and saducees hissed at the Lord Jesus Christ, He hissed back at them. I will tell you how He hissed back at them with the verses below. The only difference was when the pharisees and saducess hissed at the Lord Jesus they spewed the poison from the venomous sinful nature of the Devil in them. Whereas, when the Lord Jesus Christ hissed back at them , he spewed from His harmless divine nature at them. He never intended anything bad on them. He was as harmless as a dove. He taught the chief-serpent and the snakes an eternal lesson. Righteousness and holiness of God takes flight gracefully over mankind and rules eternally by defeating the destructive wickedness of the Devil and his minions.

His enemies weren't satisfied with Him, so they resorted to spew the venom to kill Him on the cross at Calvary. But, you know what? The Lord Jesus Christ hissed back at them with His triumphant resurrection from the dead. The chief-serpent hissed at the Lord Jesus through the snakes around Him with the power of death, but He hissed back at the Devil and the snakes with the power of His resurrection. So, should we! This is how He hissed at them and how we should hiss back at the snakes.

Matthew 23:32-34
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
Fill up, then, the measure of the sin of your forefathers! “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Therefore I am sending you prophets and wise men and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town.

1 Corinthians 15:54-56
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

Only the Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled the laws of God concerning sin because there was no sin in Him. Even the grave could not hold him in.

Try Stopping What The Lord Jesus Christ Has Decreed

Revelation 22:12-21
New International Version (NIV)
“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life. I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll. And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll. He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.

The Lord Jesus Christ who is the head of the church that He Himself bought with His precious blood and body on the cross knows who you are. All these years you were able to fool men. Men and women who also walked stubbornly in the sins mentioned above. He knows who you are, even though before men you claimed that you too belonged to Him. The Shepherd knows His sheep. You can fool man but you cannot fool Christ the only trustworthy Shepherd of God's flock. He is trustworthy because there is no sin in Him. He is the one who leads His flock and not any man.Especially men and women who practice the sins above. Your frightening times ahead has finally come.

You are about to witness the revealing of the Great Shepherd of God's eternal flock.
For a long while now you have been deceiving God's people that you are the shepherd of God's flock when you were not. Your final days are here. This time you will not get away with what you have done, no matter how great you claim you have become. This is so because you have found yourself fighting with God's Shepherd of the flock Himself. Your days of deceiving God's flock are coming to an end. Be ready for what is coming for you!

Lamentations 3:37-39
New International Version (NIV)
Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it? Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that both calamities and good things come? Why should the living complain when punished for their sins?

Change; When You Are Doing No One Any Good

Acts 5:17-40
New International Version (NIV)
Then the high priest and all his associates, who were members of the party of the Sadducees, were filled with jealousy. They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people all about this new life.” At daybreak they entered the temple courts, as they had been told, and began to teach the people. When the high priest and his associates arrived, they called together the Sanhedrin—the full assembly of the elders of Israel—and sent to the jail for the apostles. But on arriving at the jail, the officers did not find them there. So they went back and reported, “We found the jail securely locked, with the guards standing at the doors; but when we opened them, we found no one inside.” On hearing this report, the captain of the temple guard and the chief priests were at a loss, wondering what this might lead to.

Then someone came and said, “Look! The men you put in jail are standing in the temple courts teaching the people.” At that, the captain went with his officers and brought the apostles. They did not use force, because they feared that the people would stone them. The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”

Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings! The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross. God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins. We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”

When they heard this, they were furious and wanted to put them to death. But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. Then he addressed the Sanhedrin: “Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” His speech persuaded them.

Even Gamaliel the Pharisee changed when he knew he was only doing more damage to the lives of people around him because of his stubborness and rebellion towards the God of heaven and earth. Gamaliel was once Saul's teacher. As we all know Saul become apostle Paul when he met the Lord Jesus Christ on his way to Damascus to persecute Christians. Read the whole book of Acts and you will know the damaging influence of Gamaliel at one time. Even he had to change or change would have come to his door-step.

A Cymbal that is Still Clanging

1 Corinthians 13:1-13
New International Version (NIV)
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

The love of Christ our Lord is always a two-way love. If the love of Christ isn't a two-way love, why would He come and seek those who are lost. He wouldn't just care about them, if love was just one-way. He would have said, "this is my love" just accept it the way it is presented to you, no more arguments! We hear this clanging cymbal all the time and it is still clanging this way even after true love has been shown by Christ our Lord to the world. Why would He want you to reciprocate with the love of Christ formed in you, if love was just one-way love?

John 14:23
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.

Consider these phrases in 1 Corinthians chapter 13, "I am nothing" and "I gain nothing". There is something we gain from the true love of Christ when it is shared abroad in our hearts by the power of God's Spirit who dwells in us. We gain Christformation and we grow towards full Christformation in us. Only then will the full length, breadth, width and height of this love of Christ be fully formed in us.

Watch Where You Throw your Pearls

Matthew 7:5-7
New International Version (NIV)
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. “Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Dogs and pigs, where do you find them? Today, they are raised as pets in many houses. Something to think about, yeah! The things of God, like the house of God are filled with dogs and pigs running around freely. They somewhat 'fill' the house with 'joy' of having them around. The house of God in Christ is out of bounds for dogs and pigs. We have identified the dogs and pigs in God's house that have been defiling it all this while. God himself will be chasing them out of his house soon!
He has His own way of doing this and the dogs and pigs have walked into their trap this time. It is time to tell them God's word is sharper than two-edged sword and it will be pay back time!

What was hurting is that, you had shamelessly implied that the Lord Jesus Christ was the shepherd of all the dogs and pigs who do not listen to Him, instead of His sheep who listen to His voice. That you have been advocating that He is the shepherd of all those who do not obey Him. You continue teaching that He will still be the shepherd of the dogs and pigs and not the sheep who listen to his voice. This is a great sin you are committing and you will never be forgiven for this because His teachings are made known to us by God the Holy Spirit on earth. You are denying the teaching of God the Holy Spirit for Christ's sheep who want to know more about Him and be like Him. Instead, you want them to continue being the pigs and dogs and give no room for His sheep to hear His voice. You ought to be punished severely for this sin.
