1 John 2:15–17 (NKJV)
15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 17 And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Matthew 6:32b–34 (NKJV)
32 For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Right now, you are being pulled in two directions.
There is a cost pursuing the ways of each kingdom.
There is no middle ground!
The Choice is Yours!
The Passion Paradox!
In the scriptures, God wants to meet with you, so he can bless you.
He has established appointed times for you to come and be blessed.
Read the Passion Revelations
“When the PASSION of our LOVE for JESUS reaches such a FEVERED pitch that we want nothing in this world to get in the way of that LOVE and we are willing to throw off ALL worldly traditions including Christmas and Easter, simply because they were never mentioned in HIS WORD and pursue HIS Celebrations because they were, then GOD is going to release the GLORY in our LIVES in such a way we won’t be able to contain it.
That is the PASSION of the FATHER!
And when the PASSION of the BRIDE manifests, we will be RAPTURED in HIS LOVE!”
The above prophesy woke me on the morning of July 8, 2016.
It kept repeating over and over again until I wrote it down.
God is not looking to take away things we enjoy. He is looking to get the world out of us, so He can put more of the glory of heaven in us, creating a Bride without spot or wrinkle who has no desire for the things of this world. This is all part of turning the heart of the children to the fathers and the heart of the fathers to their children.
As prophesied in Malachi 4:5-6 and repeated by Jesus.
Nowhere in the Bible does God give us freedom to create our own celebrations.
In Isaiah 1:13-20, God was very angry when the Jews corrupted his Festivals.
Those who think God doesn’t care, do not understand his word. (Read “The Holiday Paradox” above!)
Those who create excuses to not celebrate The Festivals of the Lord reveal their passion for the world.
Using feeble doctrines from historical events and traditions of men, ignoring God’s word.
They try to use Colossians 2:16, as an excuse but do not understand the context or
importance of Thessalonians in understanding this reference.
Those who have the passion to pursue the ways of God will cast off these things because the
relationship with God is more important to them than the traditions of men in this world.
and it will be the test separating the those who are Raptured and those who are not.
