To Whom Are You Listening?

February 9, 2016

2 Corinthians 11:3-4 NASB … But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. 4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully.

It’s surprising and astonishing how quickly
Some turn and follow another Jesus, another spirit,
A different gospel – Gal 1:6
Who has bewitched you?
That you should not obey the truth?Gal 3:1

Who is troubling you? 
Distorting the gospel of Christ? –Gal 1:7
Who is being pleased here?
God or people?Gal 1:10
Although you began with the Spirit,
Are you now trying to finish by human effort? –Gal 3:3

You were running well
Who hindered you from following the truth?- 
Gal 5:7
A little leaven leavens the whole lump. –Gal 5:9

Stand firm in Christ, in His truth
Do not be ensalved by another spirit or gospel –
Gal 5:1
Rely on Christ alone –
Gal 1:11-12
Be led by the Holy Spirit and live –
Gal 5:22-26
Please Him alone. –
Col 1:10

Those who are troubling you will be dealt with
By the Lord Jesus Christ Himself! –
Gal 5:10

Colossians 1:9-10 AMPC … For this reason we also, from the day we heard of it, have not ceased to pray and make [special] request for you, [asking] that you may be filled with the full (deep and clear) knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom [in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] and in understanding and discernment of spiritual things—
10 That you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God [with fuller, deeper, and clearer insight, acquaintance, and recognition].

A Song:
I long to be pleasing in Your sight
Pleasing in Your sight
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer

I long to be pleasing in Your sight
Held as the apple of Your eye
Safe and secure
Beneath Your mighty wings –Ps 17:8
I long to sing –Ps 63:7-8
Pleasing in Your sight
Pleasing in Your sight
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer

I long to be pleasing in Your sight
Pleasing in Your sight
O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Song of Solomon 2:14 AMP
14 [So I went with him, and when we were climbing the rocky steps up the hillside, my beloved shepherd said to me] O my dove, [while you are here] in the seclusion of the clefts in the solid rock, in the sheltered and secret place of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely.

Psalm 19:14 AMP
14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my [firm, impenetrable] Rock and my Redeemer.

The Bride Adorned

Psalm 45:10-11    Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father’s house; So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship{bow, submit to} Him{alone}.

The Bride adorned is beautiful in the eyes of the King, her beauty is greatly desired by Him! Her submissive, gentle, quiet spirit is precious in His sight. –1 Pe 3:3-4; Isa 30:15

Revelation 21:2-3      And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying “Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God”.
