To be flimflammed, swindled, and bamboozled by a false religion I think is one of the most painful experiences one can go through. This especially hurts when you are sincerely seeking the truth. The blow can take years to recover from. Some folks never do recover. The anger this produces must be dealt with God’s way if we’re to have any future joy in life, or a life period.
Now that God has revealed His son Jesus Christ to me there’s a new trick being played these days. And I can’t blame a false religion for that. God heard us when we called out to Him and showed us that JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY, PERIOD! (John 14:6) Jesus’ teachings are plain: Forgiveness, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Matthew 5:43-48), treat others the way you want to be treated, love the Lord with your whole heart, whole mind, whole soul, whole strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. (Mark 12: 28-31) Now if I stand before the Lord on Judgment Day and He says to me, “I never knew you,” it would mean I simply chose not to follow Jesus’ teachings.
The Devil is working overtime to get you and I to do just that (not follow Jesus’ teachings). Hence, all the divisive issues that we face today. They are designed to look bigger than they really are. When the truth is none of it really matters.
Don’t fall into the trap of focusing on and fighting puny battles here on earth when there is a larger war going on for your soul.🤔
SWIMMING AGAINST THE CURRENT
Following Jesus is challenging. It goes against every aspect of human nature. (Galatians 5:17) But who wants human nature? Look at what it causes: wars, murders, conflicts, misery and pain. I prefer the pain of running after Jesus, falling down, skinning my knees up, then getting back up again. It hurts sometimes when you see how much you are not like Jesus. But I believe Him when He says His blood covers our sins.😊 (1 John 1:7) With His help we can keep striving towards the goal of being Christlike in this world. We must continue to swim against the current. We must continue to go against the zeitgeist of this world. The popular culture or, “Cult,” of this world is always antichrist. We cannot give in. God will give us the strength to do what is impossible on our own.😊
You see, none of these things actually matters. What do I mean? When looking at life through the eyes of Jesus Christ it doesn’t matter when someone defrauds you; not to the point of becoming so angry about it that you throw away eternal life.🤔 It doesn’t matter whether they hate you because you’re black or because you’re white; not to the point of throwing your life away because you’re so upset about it. It doesn’t matter that the boss on the job doesn’t like you, that girls don’t like you, that guys don’t like you, etcetera. NONE OF THESE THINGS MATTERS! All that matters is GOD LOVES YOU AND ME!!!😊 We have found favor with The Most High, The Lord Of Lords, And King Of Kings!!!!!!!👑 Jesus is His name!😊
Guys the end is closer than all of us think. Don’t fall into the trap of focusing on and fighting puny battles here on earth when there is a larger war going on for your soul.🤔 (1 Peter 2:11) Being found in the right spiritual state with Jesus is all that matters. The issues that the world is fighting over presently and even those that crop up in our daily lives are distractions. They’re tricks of the wicked one. If I can get you to focus your attention over here you won’t see what I’m doing over there, get it? It’s sleight of hand; it’s magic. The Devil wants you and me to be so bogged down with the cares of this life that we lose out on eternal life just like He did. Fight in the power of the Holy Spirit not to let that happen. (Ephesians 6:10-11) And if we’ve already been sidetracked all we have to do is tell God we’re sorry and repent. It’s just that simple.😊 Our Father promises to forgive our sin. (1 John 1:7-10)
None of this world’s issues and stuff really matters! It’s all about to be over with soon.

Revelation 3:19,21 KJV “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.  To him that overcometh will I grant to SIT WITH ME IN MY THRONE, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.”
Did you notIce Jesus said all who overcome will sit with Him IN HIS THRONE?😊 I think it’s interesting that those who love God and do not seek to usurp His throne like Satan did get to sit with Him in it. How AMAZING that we can go from the lowest place to the highest position!😃
Jesus had just rebuked the church for being lukewarm. He said he would spit them out of His mouth if they do not repent. Yet he holds out this grand promise for all who do repent: to sit with Him in His throne.😊 It’s as if God is saying, ‘Don‘t you see what you are giving up if you remain lukewarm? I am offering you a seat with me IN MY OWN THRONE.’🤣
I don’t think any of us really know how great our reward is for overcoming and keeping the faith. (1 Corinthians 2:9) But it’s still a good idea to meditate on it. Being that the church is Christ’s bride and He is the perfect husband just imagine what a good husband would do for his wife. There is nothing he would hold back from her. Whatever he owns is hers. They share everything together. This is what I imagine when Jesus says, “To him that overcometh will I grant to SIT WITH ME IN MY THRONE.” He fully shares with us what is His, forever! WOW!😊 What a Husband we have!😂 He said the same thing here:
Revelation 2:26-28 NET “And to the one who conquers and who continues in my deeds until the end, I WILL GIVE HIM AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS – he will rule them with an iron rod and like clay jars he will break them to pieces, JUST AS I HAVE RECEIVED THE RIGHT TO RULE FROM MY FATHER – and I will give him the morning star.”
Sitting with Jesus in his throne? You can’t go any higher than that!😃
Jesus says just as he has been given authority from God to rule the nations and break them to pieces (those wicked nations), He will give the same authority to all who conquer and keep the faith to the end. He shares with us what has been given to Him. He holds nothing back. He is the perfect Husband to the church His Bride. Yet Satan is still tricking people into believing that God is holding things back from us. But as we can see that is a lie. If they only knew the real Jesus Christ.😊 Some Christians don’t even know that Jesus promises to share His throne with them. He states it again through His servant Paul right here:
1 Corinthians 6:2-3 KJV “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?”
That’s right, you read it correctly. Not only will we (the saints) judge the world along with our Husband and Master Jesus Christ, we will judge angels too!😳 Our Lord and Savior shares everything with us, He holds nothing back.
2 Peter 2:4 GNB “God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them into hell, where they are kept chained in darkness, waiting for the Day of Judgement.”
Jude 1:6 KJV “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.”
God gives full victory to all who overcome this Satanic, evil world system. We will sit with Jesus IN HIS VERY THRONE if we repent of all wickedness and do not be lukewarm. Sitting with Jesus in his throne? You can’t go any higher than that!😃
James 1:9 NIV “Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.”😊
