The Maker

Hebrews 11:10: NKJV: For he waited for the city (holy Jerusalem from heaven * Revelation 21:10) which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

 

The call of Abraham was to leave sin and a sinful location that afterwards he would receive a marvelous inheritance. The inheritance is not possessed immediately but the promise of our Lord God is sure. He did not know where he was going, but followed in faith the commands of his Maker who is God. By faith, Abraham placed himself completely in the hands of his Maker. ** Verse 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

 

Psalm 95:6-8: Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. For HE is our God, and we are the people of HIS pasture, and the sheep of HIS hand. Today, if you will hear HIS voice: Do not harden your hearts, as in the rebellion, as in the day of trial in the wilderness.

 

To kneel before the Lord our Maker is the beginning of communication to develop faith to receive the promise of the marvelous inheritance of life instead of the promise of death received by disobedience in the Garden of Eden ** Genesis 2:17: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. ** Since that day of infamy mankind always returns quickly to the evil god of this world, the devil. This is the infamy of jealous greed and hate which are idols of the devil, just as Cain killed his brother. In the same manner, the lost sheep of the rebellion did not hear or listen to the voice of their Maker, but hardened their hearts as they were tested by trial in the wilderness. All perished that crossed under the Red Sea except Joshua and Caleb. The Idolaters of this age have hardened their hearts to worship like Cain with the leading idol being the covetous love of mammon (riches, wealth, money, fame and possession of earthly treasures).

 

Luke 16:11: Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?  ** The true riches are the inheritance and rewards of the coming kingdom by following the example of Abraham. This man walked away from the idols of his land and placed his soul in the hands of God by following all HIS commands Genesis 26:5: Because Abraham obeyed MY voice and kept MY charge, MY commandments, MY statutes, and MY laws.  Verse 4: …. And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed. ** Few in this evil age do not even come close to obeying the Word, the voice of our Eternal Master. ** Deuteronomy 8:2-3: And you shall remember that the Lord your God led you all the way these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep HIS commandments or not………., that HE might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. **The Eternal Lord spoke at Sinai; then had HIS prophets and disciples write HIS Word, HIS entire Holy Bible. Further, much of mankind, particularly the English speaking nations in this evil age is a descendant of the ten lost tribes of Israel as documented in previous messages.

 

John 17:17: Sanctify them (His disciples) by your truth. Your word is truth. ** Verse 21: that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in ME, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent me.  ** Those few in this evil world that walk as the Messiah, Christ Jesus and His disciples as well as Abraham that in faith follow all commandments of the Eternal Father will be One with Him in the soon coming Kingdom.

 

Matthew 6:24: No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. ** Galatians 1:9-10: As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men or God? Or do I seek to please men?  For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. ** James 4:3-4: You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

 

Nahum 1:2-3: God is jealous, and the Lord avenges; the Lord avenges and is furious. The Lord will take vengeance on His adversaries, and He reserves wrath for His enemies. The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked. ** The word wrath is translated from the Greek as thumos meaning hot anger. ** The prophet Nahum wrote a message of doom for Nineveh which was about 100 years after their repentance under Jonah’s ministry. The repentant people of Nineveh failed to continue to live in the light of their repentance and perished. Just as Nineveh perished, the nations of this evil world have also been blessed by Abraham’s faith and tested as the children of Israel in the wilderness. All nations have failed the test and are destined to soon perish.

 

In 1953, Herbert Armstrong reported there are more than forty thousand different Christian denominations that worship on Sunday and not the commanded 7th day Sabbath of our Eternal Creator as He commanded in Genesis 2:2-3, Exodus 20:8, Leviticus 23:3, Deuteronomy 5:12,13,and etcetera. ** Ezekiel 20:19-20: I am the Lord your God Walk in My statutes, keep MY judgments, and do them; hallow My Sabbaths, and they will be a sign between ME and you, that you may know that I am the Lord your God.  

 

Revelation 19:11-15: Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name called the Word of God. And the armies in heaven clothed in fine linen, white and clean followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

 

Isaiah 55:6-7: Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

 

Be blessed until we meet again!
