God sets us apart to Himself – that’s what it means to be saints of God as all believers are saints of God. And the reason why He drew us out of the world to Jesus is so that we would be proclaimers of the Good News of His Salvation.
Rom 1:15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
Rom 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Rom 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Paul was an extraordinary man. He could have engaged his intellect with other topics in the world of his day. Many were doing just that. The Greek culture was full of philosophers and orators that showed off their incredible knowledge. The Romans had the same thing going on. But Paul preached Jesus crucified on a wooden Cross and said it was the power of God!
The message of the Cross and a resurrected Jesus was absolute FOOLISHNESS to the Greeks. They mostly did not want to waste their time with such a message except for a few here and there. See Acts 17 –only a few believed after such a wonderful message.
And because his message was considered foolish babble in the culture of the day he was regarded as a nutter by them.
This is why Paul says “I AM NOT ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST: FOR IT IS THE POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION….”
Paul understood that there is no higher calling given than the calling he had received. To make all the nations obedient to the faith, ie BELIEVE IT.
Now if we spend all our time elsewhere in our head going down endless rabbit warrens discovering all sorts of things as I have been prone to do for 20 years then really I have to admit that I have been ASHAMED of the good news of Jesus! If I was not ashamed of it–I would share it with anyone without fear for my convictions would drive me.
But then also…I may not be ashamed as much as I am ignorant.
Being ignorant of the true nature of the Gospel allows us to drift away onto other things. And we wonder where the peace of God has gone!
Paul tells us in Romans 8 that the mind set on the things of the carnal mind is at enmity with God–no peace there–only war between you and God. But that the mind set upon the things near to His heart –the things of the Spirit are LIFE AND PEACE. The things near His heart? Yes the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As I was driving home in the early hours of the 30th September 2021 I preached to myself this message.
It is basically the same as what Jesus said to the woman at the well in John 4.
10. Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God,
and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest
have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
If I really KNEW the Lord and His gospel I would KNOW that it is the POWER OF GOD UNTO SALVATION to those who believe. I would NOT BE SPENDING all my time trying to find water(or in this case the truth about the Covid agenda)that does not profit me or anyone else.
Paul knew that he knew that he knew that the Good News of Jesus death and resurrection IS THE MOST POWERFUL THING THERE IS IN ALL CREATION IF ONE BELIEVES IT.
So after many confirming words from my ever patient Abba Father I am FINISHED with trying to be the watchman and alert people to the dangers etc etc…..ALL OF THAT is really a form of PRIDE. For I have not submitted to the Righteousness of God found only in believing the simple Gospel message of a man crucified for me and raised to life for me. I have instead—thought that what Jesus did was not enough–I better help Him a bit and try to warn and save people. WRONG DENNIE BOY.
So once again I repent. And I go on.
Simply believing in Jesus and allowing Him to handle everything instead of trying to handle it all for Him out of lack of trust….–that’s where I want to be in my head and heart.
I sincerely apologise to any reader who has been sickened by my negativity.
I was running another site at awakeandsee.com where I posted lots of exposé material on the jab etc etc. It is now all deleted for the umpteenth time!
The God of Peace shall look after all that is an offense.
19. For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.
20. And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
It has not been easy being me.
