The Carnally Minded Cannot See GOD - pt 2

Proverbs 18:10  "The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe."

Psalms 18:2  "The LORD is my Rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my GOD, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my Salvation, and my high tower."

The LORD is our Rock and Deliverer, our fortress and high tower.  He is our GOD, our strength, and in whom we trust.  Worldly forms of refuge can come with a price but no guarantee.  However, Godly refuge, and a ransom for many, was paid for on the cross by YAHVEH's Savior.  "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever" (Heb 13:8).  This a promise to you that GOD's WORD (CHRIST) never changes and there is nothing in this world that is as solid, true, pure and sure as our Rock and Salvation.  Learn to hear GOD's Voice by studying His Letter to you, the Bible.

Proverbs 11:28  "He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch."

Seek righteousness and be blessed by GOD.  Trust in your worldly riches and they will fail you.  Whenever you help someone in need, plant a seed of Truth or share GOD's love, through His Son, Jesus Christ, you're building up riches that will follow you into the eternity. 

Proverbs 18:11  "The rich man's wealth is his strong city, and as an high [lofty; unscalable] wall in his own conceit [imagination]."
Proverbs 21:22  "A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof."

Carnal rich is being seen by other men.  The worldly, rich man struts, when he walks, and gives a good show of false confidence and pride.  No worries, friend, it's all pomp and filled with nothing but hot air.  There's no one more scared of germs and death than a wealthy, carnal man.  A spiritual man of GOD will always see past the material man's fancy "dunhill"... I mean dunghill.  The rich heathen has his seventy years of satan's bargains and that's it for him.

Proverbs 28:11  "The rich man is wise in his own conceit; but the poor that hath understanding searcheth him out."
Malachi 3:5  "And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not Me, saith the LORD of hosts."

All those who deprive or oppress the widows and orphans will have to answer to GOD.  When the average person hears the words, "child slavery", they usually think of child labor, which is covered by mainstream news and media.  It's rare to hear about ritual child murder, child prostitution and trauma based mind control slavery on television.  But these things are real and some of the victims are your entertainers, celebrities and leaders.  GOD's judgment against the wicked will be swift and He will take vengeance of their inventions and evil doings.  Religious leaders, politicians, bosses and banksters that rob people of their rightful wages will have their day in GOD's Court on Judgment Day.  There's physical adultery, and then, there's spiritual adultery, which is idolatry.  People who commit the adultery of all adulteries are the ones that will worship the antichrist (the false messiah), satan, instead of the True Savior, Jesus Christ. 

There are individuals and well-hidden groups in this world that enslave and abuse children by profession.  It's generational just like the synagogue of satan (kenites - sons of cain; kagin - king of the khazars) plan their one world government and religion from one generation to another.  The banking dynasties and all of the ruling powers are generational as well.  Unlike most people, who work at a job or profession, to one day retire and leave it all behind, the kenites don't surrender their professions.  GOD's remnant also carry and teach the real WORD of GOD from one generation to the next, until the final generation, where the elect are delivered up to the synagogue of satan to witness against the false messiah, satan.  GOD's remnant as well as the kenites always work with urgency.  However, the kenites serve their father, antichrist, to create a false kingdom, with a false nation and people, promoting false peace and prosperity, so that satan can be worshiped instead of Christ.

GOD is Judge.  GOD is Just.  He will even the score and no flesh will glory in His presence. 

Jeremiah 9:23  "Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:"

Jeremiah 9:24  "But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth Me, that I Am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD."
Proverbs 16:11  "A just weight and balance are the LORD'S: all the weights of the bag are His work."

Psalms 49:6-9  "They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches; None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to GOD a ransom for him: (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)  That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption."

You can be the wealthiest man on Earth, but you cannot redeem your brother's soul with your wealth or any amount of money.  You can't buy your own salvation or way into Heaven.  There's is only ONE door and He is Jesus CHRIST.  Without Him, you're just another dead man walking.  The price was paid in full by Jesus at the cross.  The wages of sin is death and there's no forgiveness of sin apart from the shedding of blood.  Only Christ's blood was the perfect sacrifice for all sin.  He did it for you, and through Him, you can approach GOD's throne and have a direct relationship with our Heavenly FATHER.

Psalms 49:10-12  "For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.  Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.  Nevertheless man being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish."
Ecclesiastes 2:20  "Therefore I went about to cause my heart to despair of all the labour which I took under the sun."

Ecclesiastes 2:21  "For there is a man whose labour is in wisdom, and in knowledge, and in equity; yet to a man that hath not laboured therein shall he leave it for his portion. This also is vanity and a great evil."

Ecclesiastes 2:22  "For what hath man of all his labour, and of the vexation of his heart, wherein he hath laboured under the sun?"

Work is good.  You're supposed to work hard, just like you exercise hard.  But there's a double-standard in this world, because work isn't really about work.  It's mostly about money.  No one looks down at the wealthy man that decides not to work.  If your work involves caring for the disabled, elderly, young or poor, it might not come with a paycheck.  And the system won't reward you for it either, whether in retirement or benefits.  What men don't see, GOD does, and He will bless you for helping others.

You might want to pursue what GOD has placed in your heart to do.  Maybe, you feel a strong conviction to take a job with less hours, or lower pay, so that you can spend more time with loved ones or doing good works.  Some of your relatives, friends, or acquaintances might look down on you for taking a job with less "status", but you shouldn't be discouraged by their thoughts or ways.  Many people are vain, so they don't respect anything that's not associated with gain or money.  Work with purpose and commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established (Pro 16:3).  GOD is always fair and just.  Do you want to count on men, worldly riches, or on our FATHER?  GOD doesn't change and you can count on Him. 

James 1:3  "Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience [endurance; perseverance; constancy]."

James 1:4  "But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing."

patience = G5281. ὑπομονή - hupomonē (hoop-om-on-ay'). From G5278; cheerful (or hopeful) endurance, constancy: - enduring, patience, patient continuance (waiting).

G5278. ὑπομένω - hupomenō (hoop-om-en'-o). From G5259 and G3306; to stay under (behind), that is, remain; figuratively to undergo, that is, bear (trials), have fortitude, persevere: - abide, endure, (take) patient (-ly), suffer, tarry behind.

work = G2041. ἔργον - ergon (er'-gon). From ἔργω ergō (a primary but obsolete word; to work); toil (as an effort or occupation); by implication an act: - deed, doing, labour, work.

James 1:17  "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the FATHER of lights, with Whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."

James 1:18  "Of His own will begat He us with the Word of Truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures."

GOD has a divine purpose and calling for you.  The world might not value the gifts that our FATHER gave you, but you shouldn't be discouraged by their thoughts and ways.  The carnal mind cannot please, serve or see GOD.  The carnal mind follows his own way or a set of ways given to him by the world.  If the life that you live now has no room for GOD and His WORD, then something is wrong.  It means that your life is not Christ-centered.  You might be so far off from the right path, that you're doing something totally different, and your life's not aligned with GOD's will and His purpose for you.  If you put anything above GOD in your heart and mind, that thing or person controls you and becomes a (false) god to you.  The carnal mind seeks a carnal savior.

Just like you feed your physical body daily, you must eat the WORD everyday to nourish your spirit.  Reading and writing is a higher form of communication, than even speaking and listening.  If you've been blessed with literacy, study to show thyself approved unto GOD, by rightly dividing His WORD.  Study the WORD until you can understand and hear Jesus, the Living WORD, as clearly as an audible voice.  If you've never been taught to read, yet you are fully capable, it's never too late to learn.  For those who cannot read, it's our job to read and teach them Scriptures.  That's how it works.  It's unwise and foolish to waste a gift or blessing from our FATHER.

Never keep a job, or career, that you don't enjoy, because life's too short.  It doesn't mean to quit your job tomorrow or stop paying the bills.  A wise man plans ahead and won't burn the bridge behind him, until he passes over it.  Pray and ask GOD for guidance and help to become the person that He intended you to be.  It should be your priority to love and please GOD, and to be pliable, so that you allow Him to mould you into the unique person that is truly you.  It starts with His WORD.  There's no substitute or replacement for Jesus the Living WORD.  Getting into the WORD will start the refinement and building process as a real servant of CHRIST.  The WORD will strengthen you mentally, physically (knowledge of health), and more importantly, spiritually.  Being a true Christian won't help you gain acceptance in this world and carnal men will turn against you.  But why were you born and who do live for?  Is it for pleasing men or GOD?

Galatians 1:10  "For do I now persuade men, or GOD? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of CHRIST."

Ecclesiastes 2:24  "There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the Hand of GOD."

Ecclesiastes 3:22  "Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
