“Therefore we pay the closer attention to what we HEAR lest we drift away from [the truth]…how shall you be saved if you neglect such a GREAT SALVATION…It is NOT ANGELS of old…but JESUS [God himself in the flesh, the Word made flesh, Son of God, EXACT image and likeness of the uncreated Majestic Glory of God our Father]…SEE Jesus crowned with glory and honor…who tasted death for every one [so you don’t have to IN CHRIST]…He is bringing many sons to GLORY…made perfect in suffering…SANCTIFIED in the same HOLY SPIRIT [same FAITH of Jesus in God the Creator of heavens and earth]…Proclaiming HIS NAME to his brethren…so we put our TRUST in God…the children of God are IN CHRIST [no longer OF the world]. Since therefore the children shared in flesh and blood, God HIMSELF likewise PARTOOK of the SAME NATURE, that through the DEATH of Jesus, God DESTROYED him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and DELIVERS ALL of those whose FEAR OF DEATH subjects them to a LIFELONG BONDAGE…God is able to HELP all who are tempted” Hebrews 2:1-18
God the Eternal Father is our HELP from Above, Holy Spirit our HELPER upon, with, and in us, to not be controlled by FEAR; fear is NOT from God (2 Timothy 1:7). Don’t FALL for the temptation to fear, worry, anxiety, be weakened, be pressured, be coerced, be bribed, be forced, be led by the spirit of this world, error, under the God of this world who BLINDS MINDS. Fallen Adam’s mindset keeps renewing the OLD, former manner of life (Ephesians 4:17-20), history repeating itself, cycles repeating, patterns repeating, types, copies and SHADOWS repeating unless you are born again of God, of Water, of Spirit to have the Mind of Christ that renews the NEW (Romans 12:1-2; 2 Cor 5:16-18; Galatians 2:20; Revelation 21:5; Isaiah 42:9-10, 43:18-19, 48:6-8).
WARNING: don’t be tempted by the GREAT DECEIVER, subtle serpent, trickster, liar, murderer from the beginning, father of lies from the old garden to now, tempting you to partake of the world’s system of beliefs, instead of coming to Jesus and partaking of HIS abundant resurrection Life and Spirit, Wisdom and Power, Promises and divine NATURE (2 Peter 1:3-4; 2 Cor 3:12-18, 4:1-15; Colossians 1:13-3:11; Ephesians ch. 1-6; Philippians ch. 1-4; Romans 5:17, 6:10-11; 1 Peter 2:24; Malachi 4:1-3; Acts ch 1-28; so much more! Genesis to Revelation!!!).
God highlighted this verse this morning in particular: “He himself partook of the same nature, that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver ALL those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong bondage” Hebrews 2:14-15
“For FREEDOM, Christ sets you FREE; therefore STAND FAST, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery” Galatians 5:1
Come to Jesus, yoke to Christ, learn Christ; find rest for your mind and heart and will. Come to the Spirit and the Bride and take the pure, crystal-clear, fiery, glory filled, grace filled, power filled, wisdom filled River of Water of Life without price, for Jesus already paid the full price for YOU!
“Fear not, for I am with you,
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my Victorious Right Hand!” Isaiah 41:10
Exhortation to patient Endurance and Trust in God:
Fret not because of the wicked, deceptive, manipulative schemes, wiles, devices of satan (Ephesians 6:10-12). Trust in the Lord God Almighty and you will live in true Security. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give your born again heart its desires [Christ in you, the hope of glory; not hope deferred that makes the heart SICK but desire fulfilled, a tree of life (Proverbs 13:12); not hope that disappoints but God pouring HIS perfect, holy, pure, true Love into your heart by the HOLY Spirit (Romans 5:5)]. Commit your WAY to the Lord; TRUST in HIM, and he will ACT…The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord; he is our REFUGE in times of trouble. The Lord HELPS you in Christ and Christ in you and DELIVERS you from darkness and evil and wicked deception and nefarious schemes and devices of the devil, and SAVES YOU, because you take REFUGE in Christ in God (Psalm 37:1-40).
Assurance of God’s Protection:
You who DWELL in the Shelter of the Most High, who ABIDE in Christ can say, “My Refuge, my Fortress, my God in whom I trust.” He will DELIVER you from the dominion of darkness AND transfer you into the kingdom of the beloved Son [safe from the kingdoms of this world and world rulers of this present darkness (Colossians 1:13; Ephesians 6:12; Revelation 11:15)]. He will deliver you from the SNARE, the TRAP, the deadly pestilence and plagues planned to kill a third of mankind (Revelation 9:15-21). The Son of Righteousness will cover you with his Healing Wings (Malachi 4:1-3) where you find Refuge; his FAITHFULNESS is a Sun, Shield, and Buckler. You will NOT FEAR terror by night or arrows by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness, nor the destruction that wounds at noonday. A thousand may fall but it will not come near you. You will look to Jesus, the Great Physician, the Healer, the Help from Above and see the recompense of the wicked, because you have made the Lord your refuge, the Most High your habitation, and the Holy Spirit inhabiting you, making YOU a holy temple of God not defiled; no evil shall befall you IN CHRIST, no scourge come near your temporary tent of meeting with God through the Holy Spirit in you. For he will give his angels of HIS PRESENCE, his glory within, his lamp within, his fire surrounding and within, his kingdom and righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit within you, to GUARD YOU in The Way. Cleave to Christ in Love; yoke to Christ and learn, receive, know, think, speak, see, hear and do, and the God of Peace is with you (Philippians 4:8-9, 13, 19). Because you yoke to Christ in Love, God will deliver you, and fill you with ALL the fullness of God at work in you GREATER than you could think or ask or imagine, to give glory to God our Father (Ephesians 3:19-21). God will PROTECT you, because he knows your name, because you know His Name: Jesus!, Who will be with you in these times of trouble; rescuing you and honoring you. “You are precious in my eyes and honored and I love you. FEAR NOT for I am with you” (Isaiah 43:4-5). With long life I will SATISFY you, and show you my salvation (Psalm 91:1-16).
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for RIGHTEOUSNESS, for they will be SATISFIED” Matthew 5:6
“In that day you will KNOW that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you” ~Jesus in John 14:20
Know the TRUTH of the Word of God and the TRUTH makes you free; listen to the devil and be in bondage to fear of death for the rest of your life (John 8:31; Hebrews 2:14-15).
“Keep My Word and do not deny My Name…Because you KEEP My Words, I will KEEP you from the hour of trial coming on the whole world [those not in Christ; apart from Christ; OF the world; not born again; not redeemed by the Blood, Water, Spirit with faith in what Jesus does] to try those who dwell upon the earth [judging in righteousness, burning the unrighteous branches, burning satan’s tree root to branch; judging not by physical appearances but judging the HEART intentions, motivations, choices, desires, thoughts, imaginations, unsanctified souls, unredeemed hearts, minds and wills of those who dwell upon the earth [those harpazo‘d dwell in Christ, and Christ never leaves you]. I am coming soon, so don’t let any one seize your CROWN [don’t let any one make you bow down to a corona (crowned) vIrUS, but KEEP under the protection and provision of Christ and his MANY CROWNS (Revelation 19:11-16)]. You who CONQUER [conquer the beliefs of the world system; conquer unbelief in Jesus in God] I will make a pillar [a new temple of God aligned and attuned and protected by the One Pillar of God in Christ, fire and glory Pillar of God] in the temple of My God [built up in Christ in the Household of God under the Father of Glory and yoked to the King of Glory, the Bridegroom who has the Bride and the Spirit!]; God will NEVER go out of you [whether in your temporary tent or your future permanent light body; now AND is to come, born again spirit of the Spirit, in the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit in you!] and I will write on you the Name of God My Father, and the new city, the Bride, and My own New Name. You who have an ear, HEAR what the SPIRIT says to the churches” Revelation 3:8-13
“The HOLY Spirit is right in saying through Isaiah, ‘Go to this people and say:
You shall indeed hear but never UNDERSTAND, and you shall indeed see but never PERCEIVE. For this people’s HEART has grown dull, and their ears heavy of hearing [listening to the loud voices of the world system], and their eyes they have CLOSED [so they can’t see what is really going on under the covers and in the darkness; hiding what they are doing and planning, because it is evil, and they know it is evil, so they refuse to come to the Light of Christ; preferring sin, trespasses, unrighteousness, deception, sorcery, falsehood, unclean spirits of pride, lust, greed, fame, wealth, sexual perversions, arrogance, hubris, power over others, controlling by fear, suppressing the truth; not entering themselves AND keeping people from entering the kingdom of God and his righteousness with their hypocrisy and lies, pretending to be “woke” but actually darkness disguised as light (demonic government) and (false religious) pretending to be servants of righteousness but really servants of satan, lucifer, devil, dragon, destroyers, murderers, robbers (Matthew 23:1-36; John 10:10; Revelation 21:8, 22:15)]; lest they should PERCEIVE with their eyes, and HEAR with their ears, and UNDERSTAND with their heart, and TURN [repent] for Jesus to HEAL them.’ Let it be KNOWN to you then that the salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will LISTEN. Welcome ALL who come to Christ, preaching the kingdom of God AND teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ quite OPENLY and UNHINDERED” Acts 28:26-31
