Which is easier to believe the devil or the LORD. We are so quick to believe the devil's lies, yet we find it hard to believe and have faith in the word of GOD. We say we believe, but then out of the same mouth we say, oh that is not possible, or poor so and so, they are not doing very well, they probably won't make it through this.???? We repeat the things of the world, and what the devil is telling us through the world's eyes instead of what our God tells us through His word.
We need to make sure we can hear and know the voice of the LORD.
Matt. 24 v 24-25....For false christs and prophets will rise and show great signs and wondes to deceive, if possible even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand....
Jesus, Himself is warning us here to make sure we know the word, make sure we know His voice, because possibly even some of those who have chosen to follow Him will be deceived by these anti-christs. You can not trust in signs and wonders, but in the word of GOD.
Jesus loves us all so much. He wants to protect us all and keep us all under His protective arms, but some will still reject that love. Don't wait until it is too late to accept the love of Jesus and the salvation that He offers you.
Matt. 23 v 37-39....."O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!'".......
Jesus wants to gather us up and just love us and protect us. Why do we not want to belive this? Why would we rather believe the devils lies?
Hug yourself today, and just imagine that it is Jesus' arms around you. Feel the love He has for you. Know that His word is truth and that He is the only way to our Father in Heaven. Imagine being snug and warm under the mother hens wings. Being protected from anything that would try to harm you. His word is your shield. Don't go through one day without hearing His word. Read it out loud and pick up your shield of Faith and protect yourself each day before you leave your house. AMEN!
