As a believer
called to a higher standard.
King James Bible. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in. How are we to walk in this standard? He said we are created in Christ Jesus therefor we are not alone, He said we are sealed with Christ Jesus in the Father. Therefor He is always with us we are God’s master piece crafted to God’s perfection to do His will.
Apostle said we are a new creation in Christ, this does not register with so many people, there are many who believe that water baptism will save them…Apostle Paul said the Lord did not sent him to baptize but to preach the gospel, the gospel of grace. John said to the children of Israel to repent and be baptize every one of you… Repenting,and baptism was for the Jews. Paul being the spoke person for Christ to the Gentiles never said we are to repent nor to be baptize,but to believe that Christ died and was buried and rose from the grave…this is our confession of faith.
Being God’s workmanship we are his His reflection we are to His glory, Paul said is like looking in a mirror when the world sees us they are not looking at us they are looking at the Christ that is in us. Most Crafted man when they are finish with their works and put it on display… they know that they have done a good job and their work will be admire, some their pieces just by looks one can tell who the artiest may be. Therefor if we are God’s masterpiece there should not be a problem for the world to see just who we are. God said we are fearfully and wonderful made. God put so much effort,and uniqueness in the making of our body until it can not be duplicated.
Believers are to glorified God in our body you are the glory of God because He lives in you…our body is His dwelling place. He no longer live in a temple made by hands… God destroyed the temple of the JEWS IN 70AD there was never another one build we lived in a temple that was made by God Himself, we are God’s glorified body.Our life has to be in hominy with Him, that He to be glorified in our body, when we submitted our life to the Lord there is no more desire for the world, it can’t be because God is in you, what is on the in side must transform to the out side.
If there are no changes in your life style you are a lair because God said there will be one. He said all lairs will have their part in the lake of fire…He said you are like your father he was a lair from the beginning. I pray that those who are claiming to be a believer and have not make that change, will do it and do it now. look at your self in the mirror see how much you are identified with the world…you should be different from the world. The old you was dead was buried with Christ the old you was left in the grave… Just as Christ was risen in a new body so was the believers. You do not have the desire to look like the world or act like the world because you are God’s workmanship… He made you the way he wanted to. Paul said let this mind be in you as it was in Christ Jesus. therefor you don’t need a make over
Please don’t be deceive God said the devil is that great deceiver he is now more forceful than ever before because his time is runing out. Have you notice what is happening in the world to day among all of the chaos . so many are making them self over they are not satisfied by the way they are made so many are dying or disfigure, this is the chances they will take in order to change who they are. I don’t believe God is please with this.
A believer will not make them self over a believer will not wear make up meaning you don’t like the way you look therefor you have to put on your lipstick, your eyes make up even your lashes have to be longer your nail has to have colors it has to be long you have to wear earrings,if you find your self in this situation you have to stop and think, ask your self if God lives in me why do I still desire the world why do I still want to look like the world, and I’m a child of God? only you can answer.
God has so much in store for His faithful children… a life that is for ever ruling with him in his kingdom we are join heirs with Christ Jesus. People meaning what his it is ours, no more dying no sickness, no crying no hunger,no getting old there will be peace and joy for ever.
This is how the unbelievers will spend their ETERNITY, in that day Jesus said many will say Lord did I not cast out demons in your name did we not prophesied in thy name, and did many things mighty in thy name, He will say depart from me I never knew you… your works was of eniquety.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20: 12-15 at this time Satan is in the lake of fire also People this is why he is fighting so heard for your soul he can’t escape the lake of fire there for as many as he can get he will do what ever he can to get your soul. People this is not a pretty picture because Christ died so you don’t have to follow the devil into the lake of fire forever.
He said the day you hear my voice harden not your heart to day is your day to make the decision heaven or hell. people it is so simple because Jesus have done all the heard work… all you have to do is to say Lord Jesus I am a sinner, see you have to acknowledge that you are a sinner. confessing my sin to you I am ready to give up this life of sin and serve you I believe you died for me was buried and rose from the dead , I except you for my savior. thank you for saving me. tell some one that you are save.
Eternity is long time is short!
Evangelist J Burton.
