ARE YOU A KINGDOM-COME BRINGER…?
Do you bring His Kingdom to earth in your walk…?
We need to mirror Christ with all that we do
We are called to be set apart from this world
We cannot walk as the world walks
We can not communicate as the world talks
ALL UNDER THE SUN IS
VANITY OF VANITIES
If our understanding has been lightened
We are made coheirs of eternal life through Christ
There should be no blindness of heart
We cannot be given over to lasciviousness…
The Greek Lexicon says this of lasciviousness:
Part of Speech: feminine noun
Root Word (Etymology): from a compound of G1 (as a negative particle) and a presumed selges (of uncertain derivation, but apparently meaning continent)
Outline of Biblical Usage:
unbridled lust, excess, licentiousness, lasciviousness, wantonness, outrageousness,
lasciviousness 6, wantonness 2, filthy 1
Strong’s Definitions: ἀσέλγεια asélgeia, as-elg’-i-a; from a compound of G1 (as a negative particle) and a presumed σελγής selgḗs (of uncertain derivation, but apparently meaning continent); licentiousness (sometimes including other vices):—filthy, lasciviousness, wantonness.
The Word says that The LORD is our Shepard
In Him we SHALL NOT WANT
He anoints our head with the oil of gladness
Until our cups overflow
What happens when our cup is overflowing…?
We spill out over all who are around us
We become contagious of the love of Christ
His perfect peace reigns in the atmosphere
His Holy Spirit dominates all fear and chaos
His radiant Light spreads out for all to see
You become an evident mirror of Christ…!
As mirrors of Christ we cannot be of this world
For we are not of this world
We are transformed into His marvelous Light
We are supposed to be Christ-like
How will this world know what He looks like
If we as followers of Christ are disobedient…?
We cannot be given over to divers lusts
WE SHOULD NOT WANT FOR ANYTHING
In Him is the fullness of the GodHead Bodily
He is the Head and He never sleeps
We have put off the old man and his deeds
We have put off the former conversation and life
According to its deceitful lusts
We are renewed in the spirit of our minds
We are made new, into a new creation
Which after GOD is created in righteousness
We are created in true holiness
Purity and beauty in His perfect image
We put away lying, always speaking in truth
We are members of one another
We are to sin not, no longer slaves to sin
We are to steal no more, but rather give unto others
We are to let no corrupt communication
Proceed out of our mouths
Only that which is good unto edification of the Saints
That we may minister Grace unto all hearers
WE CANNOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT OF CHRIST
If we do any of the things listed above
We are grieving Him and we quench Him
This is one thing we cannot do…!
We are sealed by Him unto the day of redemption
We must put away all bitterness, wrath, and anger
All clamor and evil speaking must go away from us
We are imitators of Christ Jesus here on earth
We are to be kind to one another
Tender hearted and forgiving one another
Just as GOD has forgiven us through Christ Jesus
So… when you go out into that world…
DO YOU MIRROR THE KING OF KINGS…?
Are you a vessel of honor or of dishonor…?
Do you bring forth and speak life, or death…?
How plentiful is your fruit…?
How sweet does your garden smell…?
Let His Kingdom come and His will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
ARE YOU A KINGDOM-COME BRINGER…?
📯”This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ; If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”📯Ephesians4:17-32📯
