What “lies” in front of you!

“Why Adam…
Don’t you see what “lies” in front of you?”

No joke!  The first Scriptures I saw in front of me this morning, comes via Dr. Charles Stanley’s Daily Devotional in his “Early Light” magazine…

Better Things for You

9 But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. 10 For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.  [Hebrews 6]

… My God is perfect & perfect for me!  THANK YOU LORD!  This was exactly what I needed for precisely where I’m at… today.  The very theme, content, blessing, from this Sword of Truth is what I have been seeking & praying for~ for such a time as this…

The Peril of Falling Away

Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of instruction about washings and laying on of hands, and the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. 3 And this we will do, if God permits. 4 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. 7 For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; 8 but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.  [Hebrews 6]

And from this Word, came…

“Why Adam, don’t you see what “lies” in front of you?”

If you accept the lie of the enemy, dressed up in your specific weakness [communication &...], having known and lived with the Lord your God… you will surely die.

2 The woman said to the serpent, “ From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; 3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’”

4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die! 5 For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and  you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. 7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they  knew that they were naked;  [Genesis 3]

 And they knew that they were… WRONG!

If you store up your profit, treasure, & desires for your house here, how do you know the Lord won’t this very night come as a thief and take you [& your house]?  If you accept the enticing fruit from her hand that is outstretching before you… you will not just suffer shipwreck, but be left in ruins.  And you won’t make it back this time.

“Patsy is not my name, anymore then Hosea is yours!”

“Lord PLEASE guard my mind, heart, spirit, & especially my mouth… that I say nothing that leads away from You or headlong into the grasp of the enemy.  I want what You want!  I will what You will… knowing this is the RIGHT WAY & all for [our] best interest.  You Lord are a God of Your Word and “You promised” to restore me and my place in Your House.  I BELIEVE YOU & even now see Your Sword slicing through the lies and deceptions that make an attempt on my “LIFE”.

Please guard me from ever giving to another, a license to be swept away and given over to their own lusts.  Lord, to the physical death… I would go.   And, even to the point of giving up and laying down my own personal gain, hopes, & dreams.

Lord, You know my heart, and therefore, You know my desire to have this sin, this stain, this iniquity, & this life, be removed [dearly departed] from my record, my witness…. but not as I will, but Yours!  Not in my timing, but Yours!

I refuse to be a patsy [“dupe” or “scapegoat“… Wikipedia], nor a victim.  I am not without the Lord’s restoration, provision, & blessing.  I am His and in Him [alone]… my captivation lies.  I have known from the day [and everyday] after the beginning… what was and what was not.  And from that day forward, I have waited upon the Lord for His answer and SAVE.

My prayer today [for another], is that…

You [Adam]… see what “lies” and lies in front of you & that the Lord’s Word [the Truth] is all you see and take a bite out of.

And know, if you do take the deceptive fruit from her hand… you will surely die [or wish you had].

I know you are torn between what you want & what you have, but you are seeking a license to fulfill an order, that is based on a lie…

“YOU ARE NOT HOSEA!”

Right here waiting… for Jesus!

You may be disqualifying yourselves from this post because it has all the makings for a specific person.  But this I am sure… he is not alone in this or this sin.  My God says to all…

“Get on your face before Me, and tell Me… who it is you love!”

May the LORD BLESS you and keep you HIS.

I believe it is worthy of repeat to mention from “Until death do us part… part one” [http://wp.me/pWXEr-17B ]~

“Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus may the Lord do to me, and worse, if anything but death parts you and me.” [Ruth 1:17]

Hebrews 6 (NASB)

The Peril of Falling Away

6 Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of instruction about washings and laying on of hands, and the resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. 3 And this we will do, if God permits. 4 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. 7 For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; 8 but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.

Better Things for You

9 But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and things that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. 10 For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

13 For when God made the promise to Abraham, since He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself, 14 saying, “ I will surely bless you and I will surely multiply you.” 15 And so, having patiently waited, he obtained the promise. 16 For men swear by one greater than themselves, and with them an oath given as confirmation is an end of every dispute. 17 In the same way God, desiring even more to show to the heirs of the promise the unchangeableness of His purpose, interposed with an oath, 18 so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us. 19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, 20 where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

 And… Scripture of particular relevance:

Deuteronomy 24 (NKJV)

Law Concerning Divorce

“When a man takes a wife and marries her, and it happens that she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some uncleanness in her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, puts it in her hand, and sends her out of his house, 2 when she has departed from his house, and goes and becomes another man’s wife, 3 if the latter husband detests her and writes her a certificate of divorce, puts it in her hand, and sends her out of his house, or if the latter husband dies who took her as his wife, 4 then her former husband who divorced her must not take her back to be his wife after she has been defiled; for that is an abomination before the Lord, and you shall not bring sin on the land which the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance.
