36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36 KJV
This can be a controversial subject and people could easily misconstrue the message but it's one of grave importance. There's quite a bit of things to talk about. We live in a world that hates the truth and let's be completely truthful scripture says once you have been delivered onto the truth, saved and live the life in Christ you will be persecuted. Matthew 5:12 KJV Christ said if they persecuted him and they wouldn't listen to him nor accept his doctrine neither will they listen to you. He tells us that the prophets before you specifically talking to true brothers and sisters in Christ these prophets were persecuted and he gave us grave warnings. There is a prosperity gospel even doctrines of devils, doctrines of demons and there is a lot of manipulation and a lot of deception in this world. We wrestle not against flesh and blood and the evil one is the little "god" of this world that is the truth. He's not going to cast his himself/his kingdom out and he opposes anyone that stands for the true Kingdom of the true Christ. Matthew 12:26 KJV So I'm going to get into a few things later on maybe in two parts that have to do with this. When one member suffers all of the members suffer remember that.
Continuing with this specific blog part 1:
Two faced devils:
The evil one is not going to cast himself out he does exist and he has his own kingdom and he savers not the things that be of GOD as written in the Holy scriptures and as Christ foretold the evil one himself through Apostle Peter when Peter was surprised and perhaps shaken. On the other hand we do know that God does not think as men thinks. The things men highly esteem is abomination on to God but humans even believers probably have a hard time accepting that and so they play teeter totter with it. This can be complex because it affects true believers but it also affects deceived people and people that aren't even believers in any God they're just atheist. Set aside the reason why God allows the evil one to be the god of this world and to control it to a certain degree for its own reasons but if you could look at the complexities of the world with an open mind and you can accept a number of sheer people so called Christianns that have been persecuted alone in the 20th century it's a number you can't even phantom.
First of all as true believers we know God knows exactly the hearts and minds of human beings. He knows the thoughts but there's a question if the devil does. He knows if somebody's going to be saved in the end or eternally lost. He knows if somebody will be a true believer and what responsibility they will carry out in his name given what he gives us/them. The reasons people believe to whatever abilities they believe or if they're not true believers with complexities that would follow that's one thing so that's a huge topic and of itself but that's not what I'm getting at right now. We as true believers do everything in the open most everything. I'm sure there's people that have ministries that do have private conversations and they should in planning in their ministries. But if somebody truly wanted to find God let alone if they called out and were truly becoming believers he probably would accept them and not turn them away. On the other hand God does draw certain people and many are called and few are chosen we know that.
“ For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (KJV) 1 Corinthians 3:11
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world , that we should be holy and without blame before him in love :
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
