Most professing believers in Jesus Christ, hate, loath and detest one thing …BEING TAKEN OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONES!!
It truly is no remarkable revelation when you consider that Holy Scripture refers to Jesus’ believers as sheep …1PT 2:25 For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
MT 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.
Many of us are exactly that… ‘Mindless sheep’.
I wrote some time ago about Christians being conformists. Living in their own ‘little boxes’ or ‘cocoons’ of belief; and woe betide any man who comes into that comfort zone of their cocoons, to tell them that what they believe, is not what the holy Scriptures actually teach.
To those that respond with the classic catch phrase “Well I have believed that all of my life”…. My answer is simple “Then you could possibly have been wrong all of your life”
I do not write these missives to preach at you, I write to give you other precepts which you may, or may not, have overlooked; or possibly have never crossed your mind…We have to get out of this ‘tunnel vision syndrome’ which we adopt in our cocoons…It prevents us from seeing the overall picture, and that can be fatal.
What if I were to tell you that the Jews are no longer God’s chosen race and ceased to become the ‘Apple of His eye’ when they crucified His Son… would you be out of your comfort zone ?
What if I were to tell you that the present day country of Israel is not blessed by God, but is indeed cursed by God …would you be out of your comfort zone?
What if I were to tell you that the ‘Great city Babylon’ of John’s Revelation is none other than Jerusalem…would you be out of your comfort zone?
What if I were to tell you that the Jesus warns ‘My people’ (who can only be Christian believers) to come out of the ‘Babylonian’ belief system ( commonly known today as Christian Zionism) RV 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. …Would you be out of your comfort zone?
What if I were to tell you that the Zionist Jews are attempting to take over the leadership of the world and are using the richest and most powerful nation ever known, namely the USA to help them … Would you be out of your comfort zone?
What if I were to tell you that the word ant-Semite has only been introduced by Zionists after the Holocaust, and forms part of their plan to bring fear into Christians regarding the nation Israel…you are being held in bondage to them namely by their misquoting of Gen 12:3 I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you; … Would you be out of your comfort zone?
What if I were to tell you that Jesus, when He shouted “Father forgive them” was not referring to the Jews who had turned on Him but the Romans soldiers who had physically crucified Him and were dividing His clothes… would you be out of your comfort zone?
What if I was to tell you that according to OT Prophets God will once again ‘Remember’ the Jews but it will only be right at the end of the age and that only when they REPENT …RV 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
What if I were to tell you that God loves you with all His heart and only wants the best for those who believe in His Son, but He wants sacrifice from you as well MT 10:38 “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me… JMS 2:20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? …would that take you out of your comfort zone?
What if I was to tell you that your salvation is not automatic and one can lose it…MT 10:22 “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved… JMS 1:12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
I sincerely hope and pray that this missive has taken you out of your comfort zone cocoon; and encourages you to search the Holy Scriptures…
There is a frightening warning from God through His Prophet Ezekiel; and we should all take fearful notice of it …
EZEK 3:18 “When I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand.
