I’m taking a break from Revelation today. I will resume when I have the energy to field comments.
Aren’t you happy that Jesus snatched you from the fire and saved you from the punishment you deserved? We owe him everything, yet he only requires that we believe in him and that we love God and love people. When he gave us the Holy Spirit, he made it easy for us to believe in him and follow the two greatest commands.
I have put a few ideas out there that you may disagree with, but that’s okay; I haven’t said or done anything that would send you or me to hell. If it causes a stir within you, that’s your cue to dig into the scriptures for yourself and to stop relying on others who may or may not have your best interest at heart. I only want you to think outside the box. Many times we have been led astray and have rejected the counsel of the Holy Spirit. The scriptures are not dull, but they are if you keep listening to the same old stuff rehashed repeatedly from a pulpit that is void of the Spirit of God.
We don’t want to be tossed to and fro like we are on the sea; that’s why we have a stabilizing force within us. If I’ve tantalized your taste buds, wait until you research the scriptures for yourself! There is still much to be learned; you haven’t heard everything, you’ve barely scratched the surface. One day we will all find out that some of the big-name preachers that we’ve grown to love were put in place to send us in the wrong direction and to teach us to comply; I’m not capitulating anymore; instead, I will become like Jesus and upturn the tables of the money changers who have overtaken the temple, and I suggest you do the same!
Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Ephesians 4:25
