Be Sober and Alert!

March 7, 2017


.
Matthew 13:24-25“The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. 26 But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares also appeared.

From NetBible Mt 13:25 & 1Thess 5:6

  • slept[2518] = to yield to sloth and sin; to be indifferent to one’s salvation
  • tares[2215] = false grain
    *undesirable weed that looks like wheat but has poisonous seeds

Do not sleep
Do not be deceived with false words –
2Pe 2:1;2Pe 3:16
Guard against false teachingMt 16:12
Be alert and sober –1Thess 5:6
Test-Prove all things  –1Thess 5:21

Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.  –Rom 12:9

For your adversary, the devil prowls around like a lion, seeking someone to devour –1Pe 5:8

1Thessalians 5:4-8, 21-23 … But you, beloved, are not in darkness, for that day{of the Lord} to surprise you like a thief; 5 for you are all children of light and children of the day; we are not of the night or of darkness. 6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep[2518], but let us be alert and sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8 But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. …
… 21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; 22 abstain from every form{all appearance} of evil.

23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

From NetBible 1Thess 5:6

  • alert[1127] = watch, to keep awake, vigilant
  • sober[3525] = be self-controlled, to be calm and collected in spirit
  • Be of sober[3525] spirit, be on the alert[1127]. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1Pe 5:8

From NetBible 1Thess 5:21

  • test[1381] =  prove, scrutinise (to see whether a thing
    is genuine or not)

Revelation 3:1-6I know your deeds, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. 2 Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God. 3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you. 4 But you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their garments; and they will walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. 5 He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels. 6 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’

A Sign of the End

September 15, 2016

Matthew 24:3-5 NASB … As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead{deceive} many”.

From NetBible Mt 24:5

  • * I am the Christ = one who has been anointed

The sign of the end = deception
Many will say “I am Christ” = I am anointed
False prophets appear with signs and wonders
… to deceive many
Mt 24:11,24
Because of “lawlessness”, the love of many will grow coldMt 24:12

Take heed that no one deceives you! –Mt 24:4

Many are already here calling out –  I am Anointed, follow me  be anointed!
They say – anyone can prophesy and heal in the name of Jesus!Jesus has warned us ahead of time – DO NOT believe them
DO NOT follow them! –Mt 24:23

Protection from deception =  Know the Jesus the Spirit of Truth
=> and how to apply His word! –Jn 14:6;Jn 16:13;Jn 14:26;Jn 17:17

1 Corinthians 12:29-30, 17  Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? 30 Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues[? Do all interpret? …

… 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? 

Matthew 7:21-24 NASB … “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

24 Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock.

Eat ONLY True Bread!!!

September 7, 2016

Mark 4:24-25 NKJV … Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear. With the same measure[measuring rod, standard of judgment] you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. 25 For whoever has[takes hold of, eats], to him more will be given; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.”

Mark 4:24-25 AMPC … And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you–and more [besides] will be given to you who hear. 25For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away [by force],

What you “eat” affects what you hear. Eat only “true bread”!

Amos 8:11 … Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of HEARING[08085] {to hear intelligently, perceive, understand, obey} the words of the LORD.

Not by Bread Alone

August 12, 2016

Luke 4:1-4 NASB

The Temptation of Jesus
1 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led around by the Spirit in the wilderness 2 for forty days, being tempted by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days, and when they had ended, He became hungry. 3 And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” 4 And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone.’”

From Zondervan KJV Study Bible

  • v3: The devil always tempts where vulnerable and makes the temptation attractive.
    => Mt 4:3: Jesus is tempted to use His powers for His own ends
  • v4: Dt 8:3: Jesus will live by doing God’s will, and will take no shortcuts=> not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.
    => Mt 4:4: Jesus relied on His Father; not His own miraculous power for the provision of food; His food was to do the will of the father who sent him (Jn 4:34)

 

Without true bread – the ability to hear and know the voice of Jesus=> there is no power to live!

 

Luke 1:37 AMP … For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

John 6:32-35 NASB … Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine
    * opposite to what is fictitious, counterfeit, imaginary, simulated or pretended=>From [227] = loving the truth, speaking the truth, truthful

John 10:4-5 NASB … When He puts forth all his own, He goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. 5 A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.

Jesus = True Bread

March 2, 2016

John 6:32-35 NASB … Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine
    * opposite to what is fictitious, counterfeit, imaginary, simulated or pretended=>From [227] = loving the truth, speaking the truth, truthful

Jesus the Bread of Life
True bread from heaven
The One and Only who satisfies
Full of grace and truth
The Word made flesh –
Jn 1:14
The Living Bread –Jn 6:51
The Imperishable Seed –1Pe 1:23
The Living Word

Stands forever and never dies.Is 40:8

John 6:53-55,63 NASB … So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life. 

True Food = Jesus flesh/body, Words spoken
True Drink = Jesus blood, His life giving Spirit

True Bread must be eaten{digested/applied}
With True Drink{the Holy Spirit}.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance{richest, finest food=true bread}. –Is 55:2

Matthew 4:4 NASB … But He answered and said, It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’

Word of Life

June 10, 2015

Matthew 4:4 AMP
4 … Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God

John 10:27-28 AMP
27 The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me.
28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never lose it or perish throughout the ages. [To all eternity they shall never by any means be destroyed.] And no one is able to snatch them out of My hand.

The Word of God = the Word of life
To those who listen to and follow the Lord’s voice.

Without true bread there is no power to live!

Luke 1:37 AMP
37 For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

What “sign” is given, that one may see, believe and live?
=> True Bread

John 6:29-35 AMP
29 Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].
30 Therefore they said to Him, What sign (miracle, wonderwork) will You perform then, so that we may see it and believe and rely on and adhere to You? What [supernatural] work have You [to show what You can do]?
31 Our forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as the Scripture says, He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.
32 Jesus then said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Moses did not give you the Bread from heaven [what Moses gave you was not the Bread from heaven], but it is My Father Who gives you the true heavenly Bread.
33 For the Bread of God is He Who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.
34 Then they said to Him, Lord, give us this bread always (all the time)!
35 Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more (at any time).

True Bread – A Sign

September 10, 2014

 

John 6:29-31 NASB
29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” 30 So they said to Him, “What then do You do for a sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform? 31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread out of heaven to eat.’”

What “sign” is given, that one may see and believe?
=>True Bread

John 6:32-35 NASB
32 Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” 34 Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine

John 6:47-51 NASB
47 Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. 50 This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

Matthew 4:4 NASB
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’

True Bread = Jesus is Living Bread/ Living Word
=>Eating Jesus, His flesh/body, His words
==>Brings eternal life

Without True Bread there is No Life!

October 5, 2012

John 6:26-27,32-35,39-40 Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.”

Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.

This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.

Word Study

From NetBible Jn 6:32

  • true[228] = *that which has not only the name and resemblance, but the real nature corresponding to the name, in every respect corresponding to the idea signified by the name, real, true genuine
    * opposite to what is fictitious, counterfeit, imaginary, simulated or pretended

From NetBible Jn 6:26

  • filled[5526] = to fill or satisfy

True Food and True Drink

April 11, 2010

John 6:54-58 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides{dwells} in Me, and I in him. 57As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on{consumes} Me will live because of Me. 58This is the bread which came down from heaven––not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats{consumes} this bread will live forever.

Eating true bread and drinking true drink results in

—> eternal life and the promise of resurrection at the last day

—> abiding with Jesus, mutual indwelling

Notice that seeing /looking on and believing the Son has the same result.

John 6:40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who *sees[2334] the Son and *believes[4100] in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

From Netbible Jn 6:40

note: Notice that here the result (having eternal life and being raised up at the last day) is produced by looking on the Son and believing in him. Compare John 6:54 where the same result is produced by eating Jesus’ flesh and drinking his blood. This suggests that the phrase in 6:54 (eats my flesh and drinks my blood) is to be understood in terms of the phrase here (looks on the Son and believes in Him).

*sees[2334] – theoreo
To see, to know, to experience, to perceive with the mind

*believes[4100] – pisteuo
To think to be true, conviction of truth,
To trust and have confidence in, intellectual faith

John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life[2227]{quickens}; the flesh{carnal mind[4561]} profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

Romans 8:6 To be carnally[4561] minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

Romans 8:10-11 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin{the flesh profits nothing}, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also quicken[2227]{{give life to} your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

Proverbs 2:1-5 My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you, 2So that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; 3Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, 4If you seek her as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; 5 Then you will *understand[0995] the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

*understand[0995] – biyn
To perceive, discern, to understand, know (with the mind)

——> In order to see and believe the Son, you must receive His words and treasure His commands
——> If you do not receive His words and treasure His commands your ears will not be open
——> You will not understand{with your mind} the fear of the LORD or find the knowledge of God.

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water, But of HEARING[08085] {to hear intelligently, perceive, understand, obey} the words of the LORD.

Famine of Hearing

Rock of Offense

March 13, 2010

Seems the following offends many. Many consider the following to be speaking against the power and the work of the Holy Spirit? Because confusion occurs?

Maybe confusion is occurring because some are using signs & wonders as a measuring standard instead of God’s word  ….

Signs and wonders follow those who believe{Mk 16:15-18}, but do not determine truth.

Consider this group.

Matthew 7:21-23
Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

This group had signs&wonders, did miracles in Jesus’ name and called Lord. They did not have true bread because Jesus did not know them. They were not abiding in Him.

John 6:53-58
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My flesh is food indeed,and My blood is drink indeed. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me. 58 This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”

John 15:7-8
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

Also consider that it is with signs&wonders that many will be deceived.

Revelation 13:11-14
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

***
Jeremiah 2:13
For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.

***

What is the measuring standard to be used?

Revelation 11:1
Then I was given a reed[2563] like a measuring rod[4464]. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure[3354] the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.

From Netbible Rev 11:1

reed[2563]
a staff made of a reed, a measuring rod, a writer’s reed, a pen

measuring rod[4464]
a staff, a walking stick, a twig, rod, branch
as used on a journey, or to lean upon, or by shepherds
with a rod of iron, indicates the severest, most rigorous rule
a royal sceptre

measure[3354]
to judge according to a rule or standard

Isaiah 11:4
But with righteousness He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.

Revelation 19:15
From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty.

The rod, the measuring standard is the sword of the Spirit, the word of God(Eph 6:17).
