Take Another Look

There has been something on my mind, a new revelation of a scripture passage that I thought I understood.

Jas 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
Jas 1:24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
Jas 1:25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Let's take another look at what we see in the mirror. Do we see a natural face, a natural man with all of it's flaws and short comings? Do we turn from the mirror and hide in the world or play games as though we are trying to hide from what we see? Stop! Take a deeper look. In your mind do you hear satan's voice condemning you? Are you defeated in that mirror? Okay, you may have flaws, but listen to what God said to Jeremiah and apply it to yourself.

Jer 1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.
Jer 1:9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
Jer 1:10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

Be not afraid of your own face first. See yourself as God sees you. Depart from sin and be God's person in this sinful generation. Who will stand up for God? Who will stand against the evil that is flooding our nation and the world? You are called to represent God through Jesus Christ. Stand up and see yourself as a person of God to do his will in a sinful time. It is an absolute must that we be the people of God in word and in actions. Obey God, in the covenant of grace. The just shall walk by faith. Moses was under the law, how nuch more can we do good having the Spirit of God with us?

Exo 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:
Exo 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Exo 19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him.
Exo 19:8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.

Evil is taking over places that are called Christian. Speak out against it with the authority of God, not to condemn people, but to warn them in clear words. Jesus came to save, not to destroy, yet in our land that was called Christian and that was established on godly wisdom, we are being swept over by floods of demons. The antichrist spirit is in full attack mode. Rise up ye people of God, turn back the tide of evil and filth. Be the light and salt of the world. Take another look in that mirror and see yourself as a blood bought child of God. We are ambassadors of Christ, soldiers in his spiritual army. Rise up and walk the talk. Onward Christian soldier, speak good words and do good for the name of our LORD. Put off the old man and put on the new man created in the image of God. Stand up for righteousness and be an example, having his righteousness. Walk in his spirit, resist the devil and he will flee. Can we stand with Jesus and make a difference in this generation? YES WE CAN!
