- Day 66 -
Stand Firm to the End & Be Saved
Matthew 24:13 NIV
Whatever is in you that is not holy, YAHshua’s (Jesus’s) Spirit will bring conviction to you by holding up His standard of righteousness. Once He shows you, you have to repent and make teshuva; turn with repentance and stop doing it. You are to become more and more holy until you are unrecognizable—because now you bear the identity of YAHshua (Jesus). “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ [Messiah], the new creature has come: the old has gone, the new is here!” (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV).
The carnal nature is gone, but you keep it alive. It is dead, but you continue to resurrect it. YAHshua wants to be living His resurrected life in and through you, raising you up to new heights of living, moving, breathing, and having your being in His Spirit, as a citizen of His kingdom. Then others, too, can know Him through your life that magnifies the reality of the King who is love, truth, and righteousness.
YAHveh (the LORD) in essence is saying, “Repent, for the judgments are soon going to come. I gave you a sacrifice. I gave you My only begotten Son, what more can I give? There is nothing left, I have given it all to you to make atonement for your sins. Don’t keep sinning. I am teaching you how to walk as My child and to represent Me and My kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.”
“The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost” (Revelation 22:17). It is the Spirit of YAHshua (Jesus) in you that has made you His bride so that you are in agreement with His Spirit. The blood redeemed, consecrated, are saying as two witnesses and invitations together, “Come, come, come drink of the waters of life. If you want to know Him, if you are thirsty and you are tired of this sun-scorched, barren, demon-possessed land, come. There is a river of life that flows from His throne room, come and drink without cost!”
He gave His life. Will you give yours? Will you give up your life? It is coming down to that, whether you live out your days and die a natural death or not, you should be long dead to your carnal desires before your body breathes its last breath. YAHveh forbid, you should die while your “flesh” is still alive. YAHshua’s blood washes away your confessed sins. May your heart be pierced with the reality of the price that was paid, that you will never see death: “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it” (Luke 9:24 NIV). “Very truly I tell you, whoever obeys my word will never see death” (John 8:51 NIV).
