Oh’ If You Only Knew

1 Corinth.2:9. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

The stronghold, deceptive spirit of religion and the traditions of men is causing many to mentally ascend to the word of God (settling for head knowledge / level of the word); thereby rendering themselves powerless and unproductive.

Please hear me!

You can’t continue blaming your Bishop, Pastor, Apostle, Doctor, etc; for not doing what you think they should be doing as a man of God; even if in your blaming, you are right. It’s a question of how long will you continue blaming them before you step out in faith and truly seek God (Yahweh) for yourself?

Being hooked on religion will always keep you looking to your religious leaders for answers and solutions to whatever problem or issues you’re facing. Whiles I do believe in giving honor to whom honor is due, it’s been proven more and more everyday that church-folks are more in love with their religion and not so much God; and if they were asked or questioned about this they would passionately deny this fact.  This is a classic case of the spirit of deception well at work among the saints.

The above passage of scripture talks about “The things which God hath prepared for them that love him”

The prerequisite to receiving the things which Yahweh has prepared; those things which no “Eye hath not seen, nor ear hear, neither have entered into the heart of man” IS HAVING A LOVE FOR GOD.

Watch this !

Here’s what Yahshua Messiah (a.k.a. Jesus the Christ) says about having this love for God:  (KJV: John.14: 15.  If ye love me, keep my commandments -- (NLT: John.14: "If you love me, obey my commandments.)

In other words receiving the things He hath prepared is not predicated upon one’s office or religious function in the church, or one’s denomination affiliations.  As the world goes through its many challenges, test and trials; those who don’t know and have a personal relationship with God are desperately looking / seeking for a supernatural move.  In their quest, their search for a supernatural move and without a God’s consciousness; the enemy and the forces of evil waste no time in making his presence felt and known.    

God wants to show up in the lives of all mankind and He’s constantly looking for a discipline people whose hearts are pure towards Him that He can show up on their behalf. Thereby using them as a sign and a wonder to those who don’t know and  have a personal relationship with Him.

2Chron.16: 9.  For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.

Oh’ if we only knew or truly had a revelation of how powerful our God (Yahweh) is and the things that He has in storage for us; His desire is for us freely access His store room and partake of all that’s stored within.

The hindrances to today’s saints gaining access to God’s store room is not so much the devil; but rather it’s church-folks disobedience, rebellion, the spirit of religion and tradition of which they’re allowing to override the leading of the Holy Spirit. 

As nations goes through various facets of famine (financial hardship, barrenness of the land, health issues / challenges, marital problems, unemployment, etc;) all of creation waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.  It’s not until or better still, it’s as soon as today’s church (believers) comes to realize who they are and whose they are that the manifested presence of God will be clearly seen in the earth.

This manifested presence of God in the earth is the unconditional love of mankind one to another.

There is much talk in the church world about God’s glory, about His Kingdom, etc, etc, etc; the truth of the matter is that; ulterior motives religious leaders are using these spiritually catching titles and names to mercilessly fleece / pimp the body of Messiah (The Church).  The wounds, pain and suffering that’s being inflicted upon the church by those who are esteemed as leaders are so severe in that whenever a genuine attempt to display God’s unconditional love; it is viewed through the eyes of skepticism.

Yet, despite all of this; God’s word will never return unto Him void, for there are many that truly love the lord and a called according to His purpose. Therefore I wish to further encourage you with this word: (1Corinth.2:9. Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him).
