Christians, "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord [GOD'S WORD, THE BIBLE]; and in his law doth he meditate day and night." Psalm 1:1-2
OBEDIENCE AND HOLINESS
When The LORD told me to separate myself and lock myself away and do nothing other than study HIS WORD at age 13, I wasn't sure WHY, but I did EXACTLY that! I stopped hanging out with my family and friends, stopped playing outside, and stopped doing EVERYTHING and ANYTHING I used to do. For the entire summer break, I dedicated myself COMPLETELY to GOD!
I started reading my KJ BIBLE at THE BEGINNING (GENESIS). I would get up and pray, then lie across my bed all day reading! My only breaks were for food, water and personal hygiene. And I followed this routine for several months! After I finished the entire BIBLE, I would immediately start over at GENESIS. After I had read from front to back twice and was on my third time, my understanding of THE WORD was growing. And, I thirsted for MORE and MORE of GOD! I could feel in my heart that HE was watching.
I was almost finished with my third complete reading of THE BIBLE when the door to THE SUPERNATURAL swung wide open for me...I had just prayed and laid myself down, then GOD (THE HOLY SPIRIT) entered my room, preceded by a whirlwind! HIS face shined down on me and HE rested on me in bodily form and breathed into me (read my testimony for the complete details)! I came ALIVE that day, AMEN!
It wasn't until years later that I realized WHY separating myself and studying HIS WORD was so important. I had to separate myself from ALL outside influences and distractions so that I could FOCUS completely on GOD (OBEDIENCE); And I had to do NOTHING but study THE BIBLE so that THE LORD could cleanse me and teach me, HIMSELF (HOLINESS)! I continued to follow this same strict routine for the next 4 years (until age 17). At 17, I started preparing for the NEXT stage in my life, service and manhood!
So, here's the reason THE LORD told me to deliver to all of you this message: The CHURCH must return to OBEDIENCE and HOLINESS! We must be clean and pure. Then THE HOLY SPIRIT will come and EMPOWER us to change this world for JESUS CHRIST! We will have the POWER needed to fulfill THE GREAT COMMISSION, and THE HOLY OIL we need in our lamps for our LIGHT to shine...Then, and only then, will THE BRIDE be ready to meet her GROOM, AMEN!
