Scripture reading: Proverbs 14:34

God made man for one purpose: that He might dwell in them; that He might walk in them; that He might talk in them; that He might be their God and that they might be His people. And He wants you to be His temple (walking, talking, living temple). He is not talking about dying and going to heaven now. He is talking about walking, talking, living temple of the Living God; Almighty God walking down the street. This is what God wants.

God is saying to His people, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30).

One day I was listening to Handel’s Messiah and when they sang the part, “He shall lead His flock like a Shepherd and He shall gather them in His arms” (Isaiah 40:11), the Lord said, “Ye are the arms of the Living God.” God wants us to be so strong in the Spirit of God that the glory of God comes out of us and takes a hold of the people around us and shepherds them, gathers them in the arms of God and gives them peace and deliverance.

I am telling you that the torments of this present life are so great that no man can survive outside of Jesus Christ. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

God Almighty is speaking righteousness. “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). It means that sin is exactly the opposite of righteousness and God is saying that those of us who say we are Christians but are not walking in the Spirit, we are not being led by the Spirit of God, we are not righteous and if we are not righteous we are still in sin.

“How can I be a Christian and be in sin?”

Many Christians have back-slidden and God said that you can turn to a point where there is no return. Beware! Beware that when you hear, the actions that you do are motivated and given directly by God, for every time you disobey God and you make a turn, you are turning away from God. Every time you reject what God has given, you reject God, and if you continue to reject God, you are going to end up somewhere that you didn’t expect to end up. May God Almighty have mercy upon us, for we are all in the same boat. The Lord warned me about accepting something that is not God. Do you know when you accept something that is not God what you have done? You have rejected God. Though God did not tell you “take this and don’t take that,” when you take anything of your own motivation or your motivation from the advice of others – you are taking unto yourself a blockage to what God wanted to give you.

So let it be understood that righteousness is the very nature of God and righteousness comes out of love. Let us pray to God and ask Him, “Lord God, give me love. Lord God, give me love. Let it be that I love Your children just like You love me and like You take care of me. Lord God, I want to take care of Your children, not so much in my natural handling of things but in the Spirit I take care of them, saying, ‘Lord Jesus, deliver this little one. Deliver them from the sin they commit. Deliver them from the faults of their nature. Deliver them, Lord God, from their ancestral spirits that seem to rule among the nations. Lord God, deliver Your people.’ Amen.”

So I am taking care of God’s people by praying the proper prayer and by walking in truth and righteousness. Remember now, by walking in righteousness you are saving many people whom you don’t even know as well as your own family.
