I am doing something new. I am responding to comments from archived posts and answering prayers as posts–so you can all be edified. I will protect your identity, just using your first name.
You wrote: I would like to act Brother Barry Scarborough about “The Unleashing” this guy I thought was saying the right things but he said that you can get left behind if you don’t repent. And I know that I am a sinner and I asked Jesus Christ who I know died on the Cross for the Worlds Sins, and I am covered with His blood, and that He rose on the 3rd Day and He had a Glorified Body. And I can’t wait until the Rapture and this guy on the Unleashing on Youtube.com said that we can be left behind unless we don’t sin, which is impossible. I ask Jesus for forgiveness. But this guy scared me. I though we are living in the Age of Grace? Please let me know what I have to do so I don’t get left behind. Thank you. Anna
First let me give you precepts about the final Judge, Jesus, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords.
1- He is a loving God. Love we cannot comprehend. Beyond our experience. He loves you.
2- He knows your heart. Your thoughts. There is nothing lukewarm about you.
3- Your contrition is evident. He knows you. God is not fickle.
4- Don’t wait for the rapture because in fact it could happen moments before His return. Be a 10 talents person. Not a one talent person who buries fearing judgment.
5- If Barry scares you, know he is just a man. You do not have to listen to him. His theology is slanted with “once saved always saved.” Now you are damned if you don’t repent? Barry should decide.
We do not serve a God of confusion. Jesus wants you to experience His joy and rest in Him.
6- I too repent daily. In the morning and when I lay to rest. The tongue is usually my reason. Repenting when you sin is good practice–from the heart. And as soon as you sin. But you are right, we will not be sinless until we are with Him. Repentance is as a washing away. Yes, it would render the cross of no power if we were damned; but, it is not a license to sin. Simply, God loves a contrite spirit.
The washing of the feet of His disciples is not just about humility but also contrition. It is very interesting that these two members touch the cursed ground where the devil walks. He did not say wash the whole body.
7- If you have a spirit of addiction or bitterness or such ask Him to help you with this. To strengthen you. If not, please disregard.
8- Just talk to Him. He loves to walk with you.
You will not get left behind Anna. This is heresy. God sent you to me Anna. Frankly, Barry is a little too confident. Jesus is Judge, not any man. God loves a humble and contrite spirit.
He loves you and encourages you through me. All praise and glory be to God, our beloved Jesus.
p.s. Don’t forget the Holy Spirit is the Comforter. Trust Jesus above all. Not man.
