5-15-16 – Are We Seeking Self-Interests OR God’s Interests?

Matthew 6:9-10 ~

“Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
‘Your kingdom come.
YOUR WILL BE DONE,
On earth as it is in heaven.”

Jesus

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

2 Timothy 3:1-5 ~

But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
For men will be LOVERS OF SELF,

Self

lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers,
disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips,
without self-control, brutal, haters of good,
treacherous, reckless, conceited,
lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
holding to a form of godliness,
although they have denied its power;
Avoid such men as these.”

Self

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was reading in the Daily Chronological Bible this morning (actually reading yesterday’s message) and read the following VERY well-known and quoted Verse of the Bible:

2 Chronicles 7:14 ~
“If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray,
and seek my face,
AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS;

Prayer Bowing
THEN will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin,
and will heal their land.”

Jesus

 

I asked the LORD, “what is ‘wicked’?”

This is what the Holy Spirit said in my spirit:

“WICKED IS SELF-INTERESTS RATHER THAN GOD-INTERESTS”

Self

OH WOW!!!! I was quite stunned and speechless.

Yikes

I had NOT heard that taught or discussed before. It really lined up with the end times warning in 2 Timothy3:2, about “lovers of self”.

This revelation understanding, from the Holy Spirit is what prompted the post today and the question we EACH truly need to humble ourselves and ask the LORD:

“AM I SEEKING SELF-INTERESTS OR YOUR INTERESTS, FATHER?”

 

IF it is revealed that we have been seeking self-interests, then we MUST REPENT!!!!!

Repent

If we do NOT repent from this wickedness of self-seeking, we are heading into eternal damnation, for the reality is this:

WE are “on the throne” in our life. .. We are allowing ourselves to be led by sinful “self” and satan . . . and have NOT FULLY SUBMITTED TO AND SOUGHT THE LORD YAHSHUA, TO BE LORD OF OUR LIVES!!!

Self

REMEMBER THIS: Yahshua is coming back for a PASSIONATE Bride who loves HIM 100% heart, mind, soul and strength and loves HIM more than life itself.

Jesus
Are YOU ready to step into eternity? Today could be YOUR last day here in this life.

RepentHell

Isaiah 55:6-8 ~
Seek the LORD while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the LORD,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

Jesus

  1. This is PERFECT….this is what the Holly Spirit is saying to me. Be still and hear me, put all that is not of me aside. He has so much to say and so much to teach and I MUST be a good student.

    Thank you Linda! I love how the Lord works through us for those around us…Thank You Jesus!!!

    Blessings,
    Vicki

    1. You’re welcome, Vicki . . . We ARE in the days of “prep for the groom’s return” as well as “prep for the battle” . . . We have some work to do for the Kingdom of Heaven, PIOR to the LORD’s return and it’s going to be in the darkest, most difficult days that He returns.

    I agree.it boils down to one thing…Are we promoting Gods agenda or our own,Whom are we representing??????
    There is a reckoning day a coming and while there is still some time to repent,there is also those in hell that which they could ,but there are also them in hell that have no desire to repent and don’t want to hear it. They hate where they are, but they hate God more and they loved their sin more than they loved God.

    I was just hearing a video about an agent leaving a suicide note of what is to come,,,,,People ,when all else fails and there is nothing left. God will be your only answer…….

  3. Since i got married i have always attempted to keep the Lord as the centerpiece of our Life and family.
    1 Tim 5:8 says that whoever does not take Care of his own is worse than an infidel or unbeliever or heretic whatever the brand.

    The Lord loves his family IF IT is the body of believers in Jesus work on the cross or your physical family.

    In that verse case id say the intention is to focus a mans attention on his physical family. A thing too oftenly neglected these days.

    Great post Linda, how is radio show preparations proceeding? Wednesday is going online, thumbs up 👍🏻

    1. Howdy Stiggly,
      Thx a bunch and AMEN . . . Many times family is neglected these days. . . Too much focus on SELF Instead of others; another sign of the times 😦

      Preps for the radio broadcast are coming along. James is printing out what I feel led to share. I still have more to go through, but “making headway”.

  5. Wow, I missed the radio show part!
    Excellent posts and I never did see self interest! Self is so opposite God and yet so much surgery to go………scary how self, idolatry, adultry (in any sense of the word) pride, fear, the list goes on but all leads to self. Thank you Lord for being so patient with me and even when it’s a 2X4, for your correction and love!!!

    JCs, post…….excellent too. Brought to mind this came up awhile back and how it can be taken too far also. I went from never saying what the Lord said, to saying too much and now back to the quieter time…….oh the waiting………..sometimes it feels everyone is moving forward so fast and I’m stuck on the phonograph needle…………

    1. LOL . . . Your saying about the phonographic needle.

      It sometimes does seem like: “HURRY UP . . . And wait”. The urgency of the hour. . . And wait.

      It’s good for us to remember that each day it’s relatively “normal” is another gift. One more soul may be coming into the Kingdom of Heaven.

  6. GREETINGS FOLKS,

    Recently somebody had concerns there are photos on this blog that have a copyright associated with it/them. There indeed may be as well as possibly some links to articles/info/research. If you do research into the U.S. Copyright, you’ll find there are instances where one can utilize said materials for “educational purposes”. If you head over to my “About” page, you’ll find the info. I’ll start adding that to each post, in case some don’t do the research, yet have concerns.

  7. Excellent post, once again, Linda.
    This culture promotes “self” so much that most think that they are doing the right thing in pursuing it.
    We must turn away from the culture and see what the Word says.
    It says that we must die to “self.”

      1. Check the final 4 very brief paragraphs on the FULL VERSION TEXTS above.

        VERY GOOD QUESTIONS and definition of what a NORMAL Christian life should look like—- (it will seem totally RADICAL to our Laodicean Lukewarm so-called “standards.”)

    1. I researched a little as to the early movement of the Salvation Army. They sought to relieve financial burdens and preach the Gospel in the streets. They were persecuted and some were martyred.
      Bricks were thrown at them, lime was thrown into the eyes of a child with them. Dead cats were thrown at them.

      “In this world, you will have tribulation.”

      Where do we get the idea that the goal here is “comfort” and even sometimes subliminally that “the one that dies with the most ‘toys’ wins”???

  8. A brief word through Ali Winters awatchmanonthewall

    SUNDAY, MAY 15, 2016
    “When doubts arise and fears dismay, lean on Me. Do not attempt to take a stand apart from Me. Strong enemies of the cross desire to destroy, to sift as wheat those that belong to Me. Your hope, your strength is found in Me.

    Children, seek to be close to your Abba Father. Do not wander away from My teachings. Your lives will soon become more complex. Trust that I AM that I AM and be guided by what you know to be truth.”

    “For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4

    “Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

    “Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders. Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the LORD be glad. Seek the LORD and His strength; Seek His face continually. Remember His wonderful deeds which He has done, His marvels and the judgments from His mouth…” 1 Chronicles 16:8-12
