I AM ♡☆♡ WHO I AM Chapter 2

My intention is to enlighten those who are curious; as to the important differences between the religious, those who have been drawn to a particular religion to inform themselves as to how to live their lives and those who put their Faith only in the revealed Word of God to construct the foundation that serves to guide them into a life pleasing or acceptable to their Creator, the Almighty God ♡  Who is the faithful rewarder of all who diligently seek to know and willingly serve His Purpose ♡   You might say; those who wish to understand what it means to Live, as opposed to merely existing ♡   I had mentioned my first exposure to a religious and pious preacher and in spite of him I benefitted from the experience ♡   When he read scripture, the Word touched me, while his explanations of how it was to influence my life, based on his experiences and how it affected his conduct in the world, failed to ring true ♡   For example: he read from the third chapter of Ezekiel one Sunday and what he read changed my understanding of my responsibility Forever, very powerful, so I am compelled to share ♡♡♡

From Ezekiel 3:16~21(NASV): Now it came about at the end of seven days that the Word of the Lord came to me saying, “Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My Mouth, warn them from Me.”  “When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die’; and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.  “Yet if you have warned the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.   “Again, when a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an obstacle before him, he shall die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.   “However, if you have warned the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall surely live because he took warning; and you have delivered yourself. “

Now if I recall correctly,he skipped the first verse, however I counted it as important ♡   I understood; that if a man knows God’s standard for the righteous and witnesses one failing to meet it, that he has a responsibility to attempt to correct him in his error; whether he is willing to be corrected or not, whether he is ignorant of his error or not, and there are consequences for failing to meet your responsibility to that man, just sayin’ because it’s true ♡♡♡   However, there is a different standard that applies to the man who understands what God requires of the righteous and has been faithful if he chooses to turn back to willfully sin, God will visit the consequences of his choice on him, an obstacle as it were, who had once chosen the right way and lost sight of the consequences ♡   So it is the responsibility of those who have come to realize the standard God has set for the righteous, to keep one another on the path♡  I have yet to witness any religion that makes this clear, yet God’s Word has made it clear from the beginning ♡   Christ did not change the standard,  He came to provide the teaching and example of how we are to. Fulfill it, just sayin’ because it’s true ♡♡♡   For those who may think that correcting the pious, very religious man is less difficult than it is I offer this: Ezekiel 3:4~11  Then He said to me,”Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My Words to them.   “For you are not being sent to a people of unintelligible speech or difficult language, but to the house of Israel, nor to many peoples of unintelligible speech or difficult language,  whose words you cannot understand.   But I have sent you to them who Should listen to you; yet the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, since they are not willing to listen to Me.   Surely the whole house of Israel is stubborn and obstinate.   “Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces, and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. “Like emery harder than flint I have made your forehead. Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed before them, though they are a rebellious house.” Moreover, Son of man, take into your heart all My Words which I shall speak to you, and listen closely. “And go to the exiles, to sons of your people, and speak to them and tell them, whether they listen or not, ‘Thus says the Lord God. ‘ ” For those who may think that being apart of any of the various religions of our present age, are different in any way from the ones Ezekiel was sent to instruct, I can say without the slightest doubt, you are operating under a delusion, just sayin’ because it’s true ♡♡♡ From that Sunday on I was devoted to gain my understanding of God’s standard of righteousness, commit to becoming subject to it and encouraging others to do the same ♡ In my case, it turned out to be a forty year quest, having to listen very closely, not slow just taking great care to avoid being distracted, so it goes♡ For those who promote that the standard has changed or the Way was too difficult, I submit this: Hebrews 10:26 (NASV) For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the Truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES. While some may say “ignorance of the law is no excuse “, it is clear that with God, ignorance is the only excuse; while once the Light of Truth is made available once again to refuse the opportunity to receive it will leave those who are unwilling with no excuse, just sayin’ because it’s true ♡♡♡

I believe that is sufficient for all who wish to ponder what I am led to offer, so with that I will end Chapter 2♡♡♡ Have a truly blessed day and every day hereafter ♡ In Sincere Love, “Michael” of “Allen” Neel; called, prepared and chosen to serve, Pastor and Teacher ♡♡♡
