The State of Our Soul

“You know someone is truly special when the most beautiful thing they have on is a kind soul.” ― Matshona Dhliwayo

Do men love evil so much that we are willing to give up Heavenly citizenship? Do we understand Satan is filled with fury because he knows his time is short, and wants many of us in Hell with him? (Revelation 12:12b)

Do you know the wicked desire the stronghold of evildoers, but the root of the righteous endures? Do you believe evildoers are trapped by their sinful talk and the innocent escape trouble? Do you know the way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice? Do you see fools showing their annoyance to the world, but the prudent overlook insults? Do we see words of recklessness piercing like swords? Are the tongues of Christians bringing healing to the world? Do we know truthful lips endures forever but a lying tongue lasts only a moment. (Proverb 12:1-28)

There are self-inflicted storms and unfortunate there are storms that were not invite into our lives but come from circumstances living in an evil world such as dealing with hatred, lying, corruption and deceit? Do we know in God’s sight we all look like filthy rags from the same bloodline? Did we forget the behavior the serpent influenced in the lives of our parents, Adam and Eve?

Do you know that Hell has enlarged its jaws, opening wide its mouth; into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers? Did you know people will be brought low, and everyone humbled, and the eyes of the arrogant humbled? In that day will roar over it like the roaring of the sea and if one looks at the land, there is only darkness and distress; even the sun will be darkened by clouds. (Isaiah 5:14-15; 30)

“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters–yes, even their own life–such a person cannot be My disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple. God is love, and He does not hate and show respecter of person, therefore, He is not instructing us to hate anyone, instead conveying we are not to love people more than loving Him. (Luke 14:26-27)

Do you wish to save your soul from the corruption of this world? Our soul can be saved through the Blood of Jesus and in our obedience to God. Did you know in Hebrew 10:26 there remain no sacrifice for sins if we deliberately keep sinning after we have received the knowledge of the Truth, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire consuming God’s enemies?

We must stop inviting worldly storms into our lives if we want to enjoy the SON Shine from the Blood of Jesus’ sacrificial death. If we remain attached to wanting things in the world, our walk with Jesus is in vain and the vision of our Heaven citizenship vanishes away on the Judgment Day.

Do you make your calling and elections sure to believe the state of your soul will have enough of God’s grace and mercy to hear “Well done, my good and faithful servant?

“Anger has great strength,
but no brains.
Greed has many hands,
but no heart.
Fear has many titles,
but no honor.
Hatred has many forms,
but no soul.

Desire has great strength,
but no brains.
Agony has many hands,
but no heart.
Shame has many titles,
but no honor.
Ego has many forms,
but no soul.

Envy has great strength,
but no brains.
Malice has many hands,
but no heart.
Lust has many titles,
but no honor.
Evil has many forms,
but no soul.” ― Matshona Dhliwayo
