Most people, even some of My children, think that I rate them on a sliding scale or grade on the curve. This is not a surprise, as man has always looked for a way to earn his way into My heaven. In this way, you do not have to bow the knee to anyone but yourself.
It is I that have placed eternity within man. Therefore, to say that I do not exist is folly. I am the One who knit you together, so you cannot get away from the draw of My Spirit. And to think that you can determine what qualifies for My heaven is the essence of pride! Why does man think he can decide what is acceptable to Me? All such thinking is worship of self, the very thing that was the demise of Lucifer.
Beware of these days, for My Word says that even the elect will be deceived; even the elect will grow cold. If Lucifer, who stood in My very presence could be deceived, how much more man? Therefore, it is imperative that My people know Me and know My Word, for I do not change! My Word stands true and stands forever! My Spirit will guide you into all truth. If what one believes contradicts what I have said in My Word, than it is a lie for I will never contradict Myself.
Isaiah 2:11 New Century Version (NCV)
Proud people will be made humble, and they will bow low with shame. At that time only the Lord will still be praised.
Matthew 24:23-24 Living Bible (TLB)
23 “Then if anyone tells you, ‘The Messiah has arrived at such and such a place, or has appeared here or there,’ don’t believe it. 24 For false Christs shall arise, and false prophets, and will do wonderful miracles so that if it were possible, even God’s chosen ones would be deceived.
John 16:13 New Century Version (NCV)
But when the Spirit of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth. He will not speak his own words, but he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is to come.
Psalm 19:8 New Living Translation (NLT)
The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight for living.
