From Br. Ezra Orando Chea A. Brethren, where is your heart? Do you believe as the scripture says:” It is difficult for good people to be saved (1st Peter 4:18)? Let's pray that the Lord will out of his love for us, open our spiritual eyes to show us where our heart is! The Bible says: “To God’s people who LIVE AS REFUGEES scattered throughout…” 1st Peter 1:2. “I appeal you, my friends as STRANGERS AND REFUGEES IN THIS WORLD. Do not give in to the bodily passions, which are always at war against the SOUL” 1st Peter 2:11. - “Is food and cloth sufficient to you, or you want this and that? - Do you have a refuge spirit brethren ? - Are you living here as someone who is just passing, or you want to make this world your comfortable home? To this the scriptures says: “ Since Christ suffered physically, YOU TOO MUST STRENGTHEN YOURSELVES WITH THE SAME WAY OF THINKING THAT HE HAD; BECAUSE WHO EVER SUFFERS PHYSICALLY IS NO LONGER INVOLVE IN SIN. FROM NOW ON THEN, YOU MUST LIVE THE REST OF YOUR EARTHLY LIVES CONTROL BY GOD’S WILL, AND NOT BY HUMAN DESIRES” 1st Peter 4:1-2. Brethren , take a picture you snapped some years ago, go to the mirror and look at yourself comparing the two images. Certainly you will notice that you are aging to the grave! You must die and will go empty handed as you came. They may put on you some beautiful dresses, and put you in a wonderful coven, but they will all rot in the ground. Some are intelligent to burn corpse and throw in the water! It makes difference. We shall all go as we came. Job said :naked I came into this world, and naked shall I return". To this the LORD says plainly: “ Well, religion does make a person very rich, if he is satisfied with what he has. WHAT DID WE BRING INTO THE WORLD? NOTHING! WHAT CAN WE TAKE OUT OF THE WORLD? NOTHING! So then…” 1st Timothy 6:6-10. There are many people in the Christian life for their own purpose, where as the Christian life is a call to accomplish God’s purpose. BRETHREN, WHERE IS YOUR HEART ? Is your heart HEAVENLY or EARTHLY orientated? A heavenly orientated heart, hunger and thirsting for the LORD and the things of the LORD like a dry desert land thirsting for water! It is such hearts that have radically been passed through the circumcision works of the Holy Spirit from the LOVE OF THE WORLD AND THE THINGS OF THE WORLD. The bible says: “ Unfaithful people! Don’t you know that to be the world’s friend means to be God’s enemy? WHOEVER wants to be the world’s friends makes HIMSELF GOD’S ENEMY” James 4:4. BUT HOW DO I KNOW WHERE MY HEART IS? It is very easy to know where your heart is ! To this the bible says: “ It is your FACE that you see reflected in WATER, and your OWN SELF you see in your HEART” Proverb 27:19. Therefore, to know your heart, just simply look at your “OWN SELF” reflected in your: - Your desires - Your thoughts - Your Words - Your actions - Your taste - What you put or wear own etc. When you look at yourself, do you see the : - love of money - love of cloths - love of cars - love for Erotic attire - Love of sex - Love of anger, bitterness, greed , lying, falsehood , pride etc.... - Love of wife, husband, parents, children, job etc more than God so that you compromise godly standards? - Love of marriage more than God so that you are prepared to compromise godly standards and get married even to an unbeliever ? The list is very long. These things are indicative of where your heart is, and will greatly affect your race to FINISHING STRONG. Don’t just say : “we are saved by grace in the Lord”, but rather look at your HEART by seeing your “OWN SELF “ then you know where you belong to. The bible says: “ Only the pure at heart, will see God” Matthew 5:8. A pure heart is that which is in heaven, and since heaven is pure, he/she is pure. His heart is heavenly bound, and so he to is. Only these can finish strong. If your heart is earthly orientated, then you are earthly bound and so will be swallowed by it. They are natural spiritual laws in play that known should think he/she can escape. They just operate naturally. The bible says: “ Human desires are like the WORLD of the DEAD there is always ROOM for…” Proverb 27:20. What are your desires? Are they heavenly or earthly orientated? Where they are orientated, is where you will go after dearth. If is on earth, your soul will down the world of the death and if it is in heaven, it will go up to heaven. So, let’s not deceive ourselves with some out of place quotation of being saved by grace in Jesus. If your desires are earthly bound, you bound to the earth and so belongs to it. Heaven cannot take what belongs to the earth same as earth cannot take what belongs to heaven. Man can choose to do what he wants but the natural divine law of God after death as to where his soul will be going, is bound by this law. Is just like a magnet that will pull man without his opinion. Look at what you put on: Does it reflect the taste of heaven, or the taste of the world? There is a heavenly attire, and a worldly attire. The word of God is very clear on this. When you were in the word, you dressed to please the world! The language in your attire was: World, see me!!!! see me!!! See me!!! You dressed to attract the world and the world saw you, and ran after you like wild forest bees! What did they bring to you? Only you alone can better tell the story: Sexually diseases, children born out of wedlock, abortions, broken marriages, sterility, countless deceptions etc . The world stole the best you had in you, and now when you look at yourself, you think just to go and throw it in the durst bin. By then you thought you were a king or queen, but forgetting to know that the world and it's attractions are feces. Where is that man who told you, you were the sweetest girl in the world? Or where is that woman who told you, you were the sweetest man in the world? I think you can better answer these questions. Then you came to the Lord and still want to dress like you were dressing in the world ? For young believers, one will understand, but not old believers in the Lord! Be careful, else you miss God''s best for you! Do all to please Him in your attire! Dear brethren, the word of God is a mirror; so if we go inside and chose what pleases us, and the other that tries to temper with our “ SELF” we throw to the pigs on being saved by grace in Jesus, then we will be shock on that day. SIN is disobeying the word of God, after we have consciously known the truth; and that is just what Adam and eve did! Yes, we must harden the “SELF” like apostle Paul with blows, if we want to finish strong, for the victory crown which is eternal life as seen in previous chapters. Is your heart contempt at any moment with what you have, or it is always busy hunted by endless desires ? You one this and that only in a desperate need to satisfy your quest for a very comfortable life in a rotten world on the eve of destruction. Our next topic will just be a prayer guide line for the Lord to help us harden our body(SELF) with blows like apostle Paul, as to help us FINISH STRONG.
