In one of my most recent post, I talked a little bit about casting your pearls before swine. And with much thought and consideration I thought that it would be appropriate to specify who I am blogging to (or for). Now obviously this site isn’t private so (in that sense) it’s “inviting” to the general public. But make no mistake about it, this blog is specifically for the saints!
I remember when I first started blogging. I was so discouraged because it seemed (and still seems!) like no one was reading my posts. So naturally, I began to pray for fellowship. And I began to ask God how to get some interaction. But that was a while ago. The Lord has dealt with me, and he has given me direction for this site.
I am here to encourage my sisters (and brothers) in the Lord. I am not here to convince devils or self righteous (having their own standards of what’s right or good enough!) church people about what the bible truly teaches. Besides, there’s no use. We are living in the last (of the last!) days. There’s no getting through to those who are under a strong delusion. And I know that may sound harsh but it’s reality. Ya’ll know that there is nothing comfortable (or appealing!) about the truth to those who love lies and take pleasure in unrighteousness.
“Now, dear brothers and sisters, let us clarify some things about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and how we will be gathered to meet him. Don’t be so easily shaken or alarmed by those who say that the day of the Lord has already begun. Don’t believe them, even if they claim to have had a spiritual vision, a revelation, or a letter supposedly from us. Don’t be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed—the one who brings destruction. He will exalt himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God. Don’t you remember that I told you about all this when I was with you? And you know what is holding him back, for he can be revealed only when his time comes. For this lawlessness is already at work secretly, and it will remain secret until the one who is holding it back steps out of the way. Then the man of lawlessness will be revealed, but the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of his mouth and destroy him by the splendor of his coming. This man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them. So God will cause them to be greatly deceived, and they will believe these lies. Then they will be condemned for enjoying evil rather than believing the truth.” (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12, NLT)
You see, this blog is not for those type of people—people who are so caught up in this world that they can’t even fathom coming to repentance. I write for those of you who are truly seeking the Lord. For those of you who are proving your faith to be real by your WORKS (because faith without works is dead!).
Now I understand that the Lord is still drawing people to Himself so if you aren’t a born again believer yet that’s okay. The point is, if you have an ear to hear, then you are also welcome here.
But anyway, now that you all know who I’m talking to.. I hope that you are all standing strong in the Lord and on His word.
