The Book Of Judges Talks About The War of the Worlds, A Time Of Moral Declenching And Says That Every Man Did What Was Right In Their Own Eyes. The Real Tragedy Is That They Are Not Doing What They Think Is Wrong.
They Think That They Are Doing Good! It Is One Thing That A Blind Man Not To See The Sun. It Is Something Else For Him To Preach It Doesn't Exist.
The World Has Everything Upside Down, Calling White Black, And Black White. The Heart Of The Human Condition Is The Condition Of The Human Heart.
Well, hello there. I'm Teddy Bear. Today we are going to start with John 17. Welcome to Part 2 of, “The Worldly Battle,” if you have not read the first part this might be a little confusing.
Once you have clicked on the above blue Scripture, you will notice that you now have two tabs open at the top. You will be able to switch back and forth between these two tabs to make sure what I tell you is true. You should always check me out. You should always check any man who teaches or preaches the Holy Bible.
In this seventeenth chapter of the book of John, I want you to notice that there are a few things for which Jesus does not pray. Please look at verse twenty: 20. Here we see the subjects for which He prayed. “Neither pray I for these alone.” This verse is interesting because it's a negative statement that, Jesus made.
We will find that there are three different things here for which Jesus doesn't pray. We find the first one in verse 9: “I pray not for the world.”
Secondly, in verse 15, “I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world,” Now, this is important, pull your chairs up real close, closer. I think most preachers miss this.
Remember that Jesus is not talking about the Earth. Remember John 3:16? He is talking about the world's system. God loves the world when you are talking about the people. The devil, however, is the called the prince of this world and his system of rule is corrupt.
What are you saying, Teddy Bear? Glad you asked! Have you ever hear about the separation of Church and state? A better name is the separation of state and Church! Why? Because, neither God nor the founders ever dreamed of taking the Church out of government. They wanted the government taken out of the Church!
I heard preachers say over and over and over that Jesus was praying that they would not die. Question, Jesus is God, right? Then what does Psalms 116:15 mean?
It is time for a clarion cry to demand that God is put back in the White House and the School House and let's get America back on her foundation again!! What foundation? This country is built upon the gospel of Jesus Christ!
We find the third in verse 20: “Neither prays I for these alone.” Jesus was saying that He was not confining His prayer to the disciples and Apostles alive then. This prayer reaches through the space-time continuum. Jesus goes on to say: “… but for them also who shall believe on Me through their word.”
The War of the Worlds And The Pascal Prayer
Expresses the very heart of Jesus and His love for us. Jesus knows the battles that you and I face every single day and night in this world, because of the Devil, who is the Prince of this world, ( for now) the power of the air, Hates our guts.
So, the world hates those who receive Jesus and are obedient to His commands. We are not called to be worldly, but according to the Great Commission, we are sent to dwell in the people of the world, to witness to the world of Jesus Christ.
The world does not want to hear it. Others will tell you that you are going to turn them off to the Word. NEWSFLASH!!! They are not on to be turned off. They are lost already, and you cannot lose them twice.
The only possible outcome is salvation when they hear it. Get it? Romans 1:16. The preaching of The Word IS THE POWER unto salvation. Maybe it is not them who are so uncomfortable; maybe it is you. Do you want them saved or not? There is NO PLAN B!!
To be a witness takes the miracle of the Holy Spirit to fulfill it within us. It takes discernment to God's ways and the ways of the world. Why?
Because we were first born through water, when our mothers gave us life and now we are born again by the Spirit that indwells us. You must be born again. I do not mean from your mama's womb again but by the spirit.
We were born into this world, so we naturally are going to think according to it. However, we must be transformed, by the renewing of our minds, to understand the ways of God, instead of the ways of the world. A small example here.
Do you know where it says in the Bible that cleanliness is next to Godliness? Trick question. Benjamin Franklin said that. It is not in the Bible, so renew your mind, and stop saying the Bible says this and that, when It DOES NOT!
We were first born of water when our mother's water broke and the fact that the human body ranges from 50-75% water. We were born in the image of Adam; This is called our Adamic nature.
When we become born again of Christ, we now have the life of Jesus, who is the Christ. We are now at war with ourselves, the flesh. A topic for the next post.
The ways of God are not natural to us, but supernatural. Because this is spiritual warfare, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to cast down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.
We must crucify our natural inclinations continually to receive all the blessings that God has for us. Among God’s gifts are; love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such, there is no law.
The world promises instant sensual satisfaction and pleasures, that fulfill the desires and lust of our flesh; Christians must continually be on guard against this. Lust is a battle that we are not told to fight but to flee.
The only solution against lust is two legs and the King's highway. You saturate that place with your absents. You are foolish to believe you can beat it. So, don't be stupid and put yourself in that position, to prove to yourself, you can. WARNING this is a trick of Satan, and he only comes to steal, kill, and to destroy. Jesus knows how difficult it is, for those who believe on Him to remain faithful, due to the enticements of the world.
The War of the Worlds And The Sower
Mark 4:1-20 What does it mean, to sow? See verse 14.
Satan and the minion of the damned will attack from every angle, hoping to keep you from giving your whole heart to Jesus. Satan will use circumstances, events, people, things and even doubt to steal your heart back to his evil ways, which are designed to destroy you.
The truths of the Word of God that are planted in the hearts of the people will either take root in good soil, a heart fully committed to the Lord, or the Word will be snatched away from them because they do not guard what they have heard.
Ever notice how when you are going to say something to someone about the Bible how it just disappears out of your head? These battles are fought in the world and involve the spiritual forces in the invisible realm all about us.
Many plead innocence by ignorance, but once the light of the truth is revealed to us, we are responsible for obeying the Lord's directions for our lives. Read James 4:1-4.
