I was instructed as a child by those who loved me that in order to be Well-Adjusted in this world;
one is to be Well-Rounded.
The truth of the matter is that within the hidden systems of this world,
there belies the insidious quest to make the masses Maladaptive by,
placing those who are Well-Rounded,
into predictable, stigmatized, controlling Squares called negative Labels and Stereotypes.
If you find yourself being driven away from your faith and or conviction via the pull of the World’s systems, beware of becoming Lukewarm!
Those who know the Most- High are not to place our belief and abilities in ;
our wealth, knowledge, occupations nor this world.
False confidence and self-sufficiency blind us to how God sees us in our current state,
for we are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked before a Holy and merciful God.
God’s wisdom is worlds apart more superior than that of this fallen world in that;
God delights in for His body of Believers to,
buy from Him gold refined in the fire,
that you may be rich and white garments,
that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed;
and anoint your eyes with salve that you may see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My father on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation 3:14-22).
We are part of this world and we also are part of the Body of Christ. In all the many things that we are called to do, we who are in Messiah must commit to remaining faithful to our First Love which is Messiah. Avoidance of becoming lukewarm is possible by remaining intimate with Messiah.
Our salvation, strength, and unity are not in the systems of this world but in the united Body of Messiah. I deeply encourage those who are in Messiah, to rededicate your commitment toward unity within the Body of Messiah during these last days.
Grace and Peace
