Don't Ever Forget Where God Has Brought You From

Saints men can not replace our need for the Holy Spirit, and the written word of God. The Lord has been speaking to me today saints. I realized that I have been listening to too many voices saints, voices that were working to taint my walk with the Lord, and I just needed to get alone with God!

Saints I have to confess, I had gotten off base, because I have listened to the words of wicked men, tainted and jaded men, men who have no mercy toward the lost... men who have become smug in what knowledge they have been given of God. Saints it is easy for men to become puffed up in their limited knowledge of God. I found myself becoming jaded and indifferent to some sinners.

Jesus came to save the lost, the unrighteous the unregenerate, he did not come to save the righteous, but to bring sinners to repentance.... He saved me, and I was wicked....we cannot afford to get a mean and a self righteous spirit in us saints...and it is easy to do saints, because our hearts are desperately wicked. It is the old nature that causes us to digress from the way of Christ our Lord.

This is what the Lord spoke to me:
Love your neighbor, love the sinners, love those who despitefully use you and persecute you...if you love only those who love you, what is that, do not even the publicans in essence love those who frequent their establishments, and fill their pockets?

The sinner has no concept of the longsuffering love of the Lord, the Love of the Lord suffers long and is kind, it is neither haughty or arrogant, it does not think ill of its neighbor, it does not give love with thought of what it may receive in return.

Ye know not what spirit ye are of, when you start to lay down commandments for men, and judge to hastily amongst one another, for the son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them Luke 9:55-56

If people don't want to accept you, don't try and call down fire from heaven on them, pray for them.
This is not the time for God to destroy men in judgment, by bringing fire down from Heaven to consume them. This is the time of God’s Grace and Mercy being extended to mankind.

Why do you call Jesus Lord, if you do not do what he says?
The Highest is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Do not ever forget where God has brought you from, so that you look down on your brothers your brethren.

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
Luke 6: 27-29

And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem.
And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did?
But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.
For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. Luke 9:55-56
