SALVATION: SOUL POSITION, MOST DON'T KNOW
|There is nothing on heaven or earth that can harm a child of God who is Home.
This refers to the locus of the soul relative to God's grace.
Soul position determines those with the Lord and those positioned under another master.
As the saying goes, all will serve SOMEONE--the determination is a matter of judgment.
The Lord judges those who are with Him and those against Him.
Those who straddle the fence are not with the Lord. It does not matter what you intend; it does not matter how many good works you do or even if you pastor a church. It does not matter what you wanted ultimately.
It matters what your position is. Did you repent, ask for forgiveness and abide in Christ? Did that relationship bear fruit--Christlikeness--for all the world to see? Did you keep walking with Him or did you go somewhere else?
Were you saved from the System of the Evil One? The World System that forces all to comply? Were you saved out of that? Did you continue to serve the world--were you born again into the World System of Satan and not born again into Christ?
Were you not delivered out of one system and into another?
If you were born again out of this world--twice dead--then you are NOT AVAILABLE for salvation.
If you were born again in Christ but fell, then your position is with Christ but you are apostate.
Most people I minister to are snared with the world system but yearn for the Lord God Almighty through His Son Jesus Christ. Some are not saved, and some are.
In the end, the Good Shepherd will deliver all who are His...so I do not worry.
Some are gone, and some are still here despite their best efforts to get rich quick.
What is your position right now? Do you really belong to Christ?
Or do you belong to the World?
The world recognizes her own. The world will not open any door to those she does not recognize. She's got a mean, mean pride! You might have noticed...amen?
The same is true of Our Lord. No door shall open to those of the world. Ever.
It is a double edged sword. God is that sword. There is no leeway. There is no fudge space. There is no wishy-washy thing going on with God. You are either with Him or against Him. You are either with the world or against it.
If you are with Jesus...truly, you may measure yourself by the following Scriptures from the Word of God:
Luk 6:22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Jhn 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before [it hated] you.
Jhn 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
Truth. No, listen. Absolute T-R-U-T-H. Don't mess around with this reality--you cannot afford to be wrong.
* * *
The god of the world is Satan, or Lucifer, if you prefer. For many people he is the true god, the only thing that exists. The demons, Satan's angels, are what they consider the real angels. The Holy Scriptures become Satan's scriptures in Satan's mirror world--which you must be born into and accept. A whole new world! A whole different system, and a whole new way of looking at things, and supernatural power in the hands of the common man, more than enough for temporal pleasures and riches.
That is a position. That position is not in Christ.
I know many in this position who go to church twice a week and some who conduct Bible study in their homes and even couples counseling! All to make the outside look good...and hide the true nature of their hearts--belonging to Lucifer.
That position is the target of the next wave of judgment on this earth, terror and tribulation such as the world has never seen.
If you are stuck "over there," then you are not here. If you are in the middle--then you are lost, and still salvagable.
But if you are "over there" in THAT WORLD, then you are not available for salvation--you're gone. You were taken.
Fortunately, there is a way back!
ONLY ONE WAY, AND PERHAPS ONLY ONE CHANCE
Caution: do not take this lightly:
1. You must leave that world and return to the middle. This is somewhat of a miracle.
2. You must not call Satan God and God Satan again.
3. You must separate yourself from the world, and, while vulnerable to attack, or perhaps even suffering tremendous reversals...THEN cry out for Jesus! KNOW YOU ARE BROKEN AS HE WAS BROKEN FOR YOU. THAT IS THE ONLY WAY.
4. You must work this out yourself--in your own way. If you have had a change of heart you may cry out for help from the Living God, Jehovah...Yahweh, Father, God Almighty--Jesus Christ. I don't know what the result will be.
5. You must accept the Holy Spirit indwelling you--which will cast out the demon which lives in you now and takes care of you. The Holy Spirit will take care of you and you will serve God and not yourself--lest you grieve Him.
6. You must forego social acceptance, profitability, and even earthly goals if all of that was guided by the god of the world. God Himself adds riches to anyone He pleases, but only as He pleases and not as you please.
7. You must push deeply into God and remain there. You will know if delivery has taken place.
I can tell you this: deliverance occurs all the time. Paul was one of the greatest Christians, and yet was steeped in the world system and in fact killing Christians before he got the call.
So there is a chance--perhaps slim unless you are really weak, broken and contrite--that you can COME OUT to be BORN AGAIN into Christ.
Hallalujah! You live again, FOREVER. That part of the sword of truth we love. To be in His Presence, in Glory with no sorrow ever again, in the abundance of the El Shaddai, the creator of all good things, amen.
The sad news is that most people who call themselves Christians are not Christians, saved by the Blood of the Lamb. They serve the world and believe they are saved. They said 'Jesus' with their lips and not with their hearts.
They use Him to cover up Satan. They call Jesus' works Satan's works and refuse the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
I do not need to tell you what these peoples' position is, do I?
Some of these churchgoers will put out of their churches any who are of God.
This is unforgiveable. These people do not want God to be God, they want to live in peace and enjoy their home...earth. They think Heaven is a place they will rule over lesser people than themselves. Those of defiled minds cannot truly understand. It would be sad save the fact that they love their lives and are satisfied.
Pray with me:
Father God, please accept this horrible sinner who substituted the truth for the lie in hatred of You. I sold my soul, I'm sorry--but you paid for my soul to be redeemed, if and only if I am one of Yours, Father God. I want to be Your Son/Daughter--please. I turn away from the world now...and want to walk in Your Ways, as a sojourner on the planet, not a slave. Will you take me back, Father? Oh, Lord Jesus please don't let me go with them. I hate them, I hate myself, I hate my life...I was afraid. I did bad things, I hurt people for pleasure. But I'm sorry. Lord I am sorry. Please take me. Let me be your son/daughter. I give you my life right now, Lord Jesus. I lay it down and don't want it back.
In Jesus Holy Name.
If you really mean this: and if you are baptized/re-baptized...you might live again. All of Heaven rejoices over you, brother, sister! You are washed in the Blood and clean like white linen forever. You're one of the saints! You can't do better than that in this world, friend!
Otherwise, you are dead, though walking around and consuming lots of goods.
The sword has two sides. What is your position?
