The Daily Word of Righteousness

The Rewards to the Overcomer, continued

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. (Revelation 2:26,27)

Notice how our nice, little, gentle Jesus appears to this sinful assembling: "eyes like a flame of fire and feet like burnished bronze." How come you never see this picture of Christ in a Bible book store?

Whenever we sin this is how Christ comes to us. Revelation is written to Christians, not to the secular society.

Christ knows our works, our love, our service, our faith, our patience, and again our works. Works, works, works, not grace, grace, grace.

Christ has something against us. We permit the teaching of fornication and the eating of things sacrificed to idols.

Two of the great idols of America are fornication and professional sports. We see churches where the Pastor, because of fear of the people, mixes the important games with the church service. The "believers" sit in the assembling with their transistor radios listening to the Super Bowl.

Let me hasten to tell you that engaging in the worship of the spoiled brats (so they are proving to be, starting in high school) who are naturally talented in sports is not what the Bible means by redeeming the time.

Do you think the Lord Jesus Christ is pleased when the believers in the affluent nations are occupied with football, baseball, basketball, and soccer when much of the world is starving to death spiritually and physically?

If you think He is you don't know Him.

God is giving us Christians in America a few years to repent. If we do not, disaster shall overtake our nation.

All who follow Jezebel (worldly Christianity) will be killed with spiritual death. Christ shall give to every believer according to his or her works. Ignore the warning of Revelation at your peril.

There is a remnant today who have not been living in fornication and idolatry, they have not known the supposed depths of Satan. Christ will not add to their burden but they are to hold fast what they have until He appears.

If we keep Christ's works to the end of our life on earth (no retirement from serving Christ is permitted!) we will be given authority over the nations. Through Christ we will break their resistance to pieces.

Who wants this kind of authority and power? I do. I want to stop the killing of babies, among other things. I want to stop the abuse and prostituting of children for another. I want to close down the institutions of learning that lead our young people astray. If I remain faithful to Christ I will have that kind of authority and power when the Lord returns, and somewhat today through prayer.

If we are to rule we need the morning star. The morning star is Christ in us heralding the new day of His Kingdom. No believer living in his adamic nature is going to be "raptured" into Heaven and then return at a later time to govern nations. Only those in whom the Morning Star has been formed and is dwelling are authorized and competent to rule with Christ.

To be continued.
