So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.- Matt 10:32-33 ESV
There are no SECRET AGENTS for the LORD! Why would you NOT publicly, and to everyone you know, CONFESS your LOVE for our LORD and SHARE the GOOD NEWS? People have always been told to KEEP QUIET about Jesus! Luke 19:39-40; And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” We are assured by God, if we speak highly of Him, He will speak highly of us! So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32)
Leader, one of the scariest parts of the Bible is Matthew 7:21-23; “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ‘And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ We talk about things that are important to us! It is written; from the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks! If you are acknowledging God with your mouth and your life, He will acknowledge you with His mouth, and His life! However, if you do not, He WILL NOT! “But whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven”. (Matthew 10:33)
Conduit, If it is IN your heart, eventually it will come OUT of your mouth! Power and MIGHT come from knowing the LORD- His Word- and speaking HIS name and HIS TRUTH to others! When we get to know Jesus, share Jesus- we grow in POWER and MIGHT! (Dan 2:20-23 slightly altered); Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him. I thank and praise you, Jehovah Sabaoth. You have given me wisdom and power that can only come through knowing you through your WORD, your only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ! Amen! It’s no longer allowable to be a SECRET AGENT for God! The TIME IS NOW, to speak, and LIVE, FOR GOD! Hear the Word of the Lord: It is not I who lives, but Christ who lives in me! I die daily to myself, pick up my cross and focus on the ONE WHO IS WORTHY OF MY LIFE!
