David Eells -12/29/21

Many people believe that they have arrived, and that’s a sad thing. There’s always a goal, and the goal is Christ and Christ-likeness, and they don’t know it. For that reason, “the backsliding of the simple shall slay them.” 

(Pro.1:32) For the backsliding of the simple shall slay them… When the Scripture talks about “falling away” as in (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Jude 1:24), it’s talking about “backsliding” (Isaiah 57:17; Jeremiah 2:19; etc.) because both the Greek apostasia and the Hebrew meshubah have the same meaning. Apostasy, backsliding or falling away.

When we are in this state our “hard drive” is infected with this world and its ways and its thinking, and it has to be renewed. We must be “transformed by the renewing of our minds”.  I know many people believe that the beginning and the end of Christianity is to “just accept Jesus as your personal Savior,” but that cannot be found written in the Word. What is written in the Word is “repent and believe,” which means to “change your mind and believe what I say”  as in (Matthew 21:32; Mark 1:15). Yet, too many people think they’ve stepped over some magic line and now they can just sit down and rest in the flesh, but then they can’t and don't, bear fruit as in (Matthew 17:17-19; Luke 6:43)

Without bearing fruit, we are not being “born from above” (John 3:3,7). Let’s go back to verse 20 and look at Who wrote “For the backsliding of the simple shall slay them.” (Pro.1:20) Wisdom crieth aloud in the street… So we see Wisdom is the One speaking here. Scripture also says, (1Co.1:24) … "Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God". This is Jesus speaking; He is the Wisdom of God. And from John, we know that He’s also the Word of God. (Joh.1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Therefore the Word of God is the Wisdom of God, and the Word gives you very clear directions to seek Him, not once, not by just shaking a preacher’s hand or anything like that, but to seek Him and put that Wisdom into your heart. 

Putting that Wisdom in your heart is what will protect and deliver you from this falling away because, as the Bible warns us, (Psa.58:3) The wicked are estranged from the womb: They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies. Let’s continue reading. (Pro.1:20) Wisdom crieth aloud in the street; She uttereth her voice in the broad places (That’s the broad road where the “many” are {Matthew 7:13}.); (21) She crieth in the chief place of concourse; At the entrance of the gates, In the city, she uttereth her words: (22) How long, ye simple ones (The Hebrew word there is pthiy and it means “foolish; silly, as in ‘able to be seduced’; naive.” These people are “simple” for lack of the knowledge of God.).  How long, ye simple ones will ye love simplicity? And scoffers delight them in scoffing, And fools hate knowledge?  

Do you know how we know that people hate knowledge? It’s because they don’t choose to seek it out; they choose the world and the worldly. They let someone just “tell them how it is,” or letting some false god tell them instead of seeking out their own salvation (Php.2:12) …with fear and trembling. They would rather pay some preacher to give them the “truth.” Well here’s the truth, (Mat.22:14) For many are called, but few chosen. Paul said to Timothy, (2Ti.1:8) Be not ashamed therefore of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but suffer hardship with the gospel according to the power of God; (9) who saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before times eternal. Notice “Who saved us, and called us”

You don’t get called until you get saved. This “calling” is the Greek word klésis and it means “invitation.” We are being invited to partake of the things of the Kingdom of God, yet many people are not partaking of these, although it’s written in there plainly. You can show it to them, but they’ve been inoculated by dead religion to not believe what is written and that’s why many are the called and few are the chosen. 

Now when you go out into a field that you have planted, which is what God has done in parables (Genesis 49:2; Isaiah 3:14,5:7,17:10,27:2; Amos 5:11; etc.), you’re looking for the fruit. You’re going to pick the fruit. You don’t care about the plant. You plow the plant under and it goes back to the soil, just like the old body. 

Jesus, in the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3-8,18-23; Mark 4:2-9,13-20; Luke 8:4-15) pointed out to us four different types of people, and three of the four, when they heard the Good News, fell away, even though they were the ones, at least the last three, were the ones who were called. (Mar.4:14) The sower soweth the word. (15) And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; and when they have heard, straightway cometh Satan, and taketh away the word which hath been sown in them. (16) And these in like manner are they that are sown upon the rocky [places], who, when they have heard the word, straightway receive it with joy; (17) and they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, straightway they stumble. (18) And others are they that are sown among the thorns; these are they that have heard the word, (19) and the cares of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (20) And those are they that were sown upon the good ground; such as hear the word, and accept it, and bear fruit, thirtyfold, and sixtyfold, and a hundredfold. 

Again, three of the four types, when they heard the Good News, fell away. Only one bore fruit, thirty-, sixty-, and a hundred-fold. These are the true Kingdom people. So if you “love simplicity,” (In the way the Bible refers to it negatively) and you love the very simple lie that all you need to do is shake some preacher’s hand and then go sit on a pew and wait for the rapture, well, you’re one of these fools who hates knowledge. If that’s all you do, you’re hating knowledge. 

You need to seek out your own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12)(Pro.1:23-30) Turn you at my reproof: Behold, I will pour out my spirit upon you (Many reject the Spirit of God, the Spirit of Wisdom. If you don’t seek out your own salvation, you are rejecting the Spirit of God and the Spirit of Wisdom as it was given in the book of Acts.); I will make known my words unto you. (24) Because I have called, and ye have refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man hath regarded; (25) But ye have set at nought all my counsel, And would none of my reproof: (26) I also will laugh in the day of your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; (27) When your fear cometh as a storm, And your calamity cometh on as a whirlwind; When distress and anguish come upon you. (28) Then will they call upon me, but I will not answer; They will seek me diligently, but they shall not find me: (29) For that they hated knowledge, And did not choose the fear of the Lord (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, is it not? {Proverbs 9:10}), (30) They would none of my counsel, They despised all my reproof. 

It’s much simpler to let a preacher who is walking in the flesh tell you how easy it is to be in the Kingdom, and that you really don’t have to lose your life as Jesus said, in order to gain your life (Matthew 16:24-25; Mark 8:34-38; Luke 9:23-24; John 12:25). “You don’t really have to do that, that’s the hard way, just accept Jesus as your ‘personal Savior,’ sit on a pew, pay your tithes and everything will be okay.”

(Pro.1:31) Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, And be filled with their own devices. Oh, the “devices” that are out there now! “Unconditional eternal security” is a particularly deadly one. It teaches that you don’t have to do anything after receiving salvation, but look at what Scripture teaches. (Eph.2:8) For by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, [it is] the gift of God; (9) not of works, that no man should glory. (10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God afore prepared that we should walk in them. 

Those who don’t have “good works” are obviously not the people of God, and they will speak against “works,” although the Bible says just the opposite. The Bible says that you’re going to be judged according to your works, and it says it very clearly, over and over and over (Hebrews 11:8-30; James 2:14-26; etc.) (I'm not referring to the self-works of justification here.) So how do we bear the fruit of good works? First of all, we have to put goodness in our heart, because it is that Wisdom of God, the Word of God, that re-programs our hard-drive to think, walk, talk, and bear the fruit of Jesus Christ. 

(Pro.1:32) For the backsliding (Again, the “backsliding” is the “falling-away.”) of the simple shall slay them, And the careless ease of fools shall destroy them. (33) But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell securely, And shall be quiet without fear of evil. (Pro.2:1) My son (This is still Wisdom speaking.), if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee; (2) So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding; (3) Yea, if thou cry after discernment, And lift up thy voice for understanding… The Bible promises that if you ask the Lord for wisdom, He will give it to you. If you ask Him for understanding, He will give it to you. Don’t be double-minded, but ask Him and seek Him (James 1:5-8). Ask Him even to put it in your heart to desire it. 

When I first came to the Lord, I didn’t have any foundation in Scripture whatsoever, but when I started reading it, a supernatural desire fell over me to seek after wisdom, to seek after knowledge. A supernatural desire fell over me to find out about this God. I had been lied to about this God when I was in the Catholic church and I had to look in the Scriptures for myself to find out the truth. Everything else fell by the wayside as God kept on leading me through this desire for truth. Nothing else was important. All of my hobbies that I loved before fell by the wayside because, suddenly, this was the important thing. If you don’t have that gift, you need to ask God for that gift. (Pro.2:4) If thou seek her (If you seek Wisdom.) as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures: (5) Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord (Yes, you must have the fear of the Lord. Many people hear the Scriptures, but totally ignore what they’ve heard because they don’t have the fear of the Lord.), And find the knowledge of God. (6) For the Lord giveth wisdom; Out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding: 

(7) He layeth up sound wisdom for the upright; [He is] a shield to them that walk in integrity; (8) That he may guard the paths of justice, And preserve the way of his saints. (9) Then shalt thou understand righteousness and justice, And equity, [yea,] every good path. (10) For wisdom shall enter into thy heart, And knowledge shall be pleasant unto thy soul; (11) Discretion shall watch over thee; Understanding shall keep thee: (12) To deliver thee from the way of evil, From the men that speak perverse things; (13) Whoso forsaketh the paths of uprightness, To walk in the ways of darkness (Which is what so many people do: they get saved, and then continue to walk in the same way they’ve always walked, not seeking out the knowledge and wisdom of God to know even what is the Will of God.); (14) Who rejoice to do evil, And delight in the perverseness of evil; (15) Who are crooked in their ways, And wayward in their paths: (16) To deliver thee from the strange woman, Even from the foreigner that flattereth with her words. The “strange woman” is the “harlot” of Revelation 17, but that harlot is the “mother of the harlots” of the earth (Revelation 17:5).

All of those sects that came out of the mother are also called “harlots” because every one of those denominations received their own seed, the seed that wasn’t the seed of the Husband. That makes them harlots. They received their own wisdom and their own knowledge. The knowledge of the Gospel is being ignored. They’ve reduced it to nothing more than moralizing and there is no hope for moralizing. Those apostate preachers may get up and give a Scripture verse or two on Sunday morning, but the rest of the time, it’s all their knowledge and their wisdom. 

Folks, there’s nothing more important than the Word of God! The Word going into your heart re-creates Jesus Christ in you. He is the Word. It’s the Word that does this; nothing else can do it. No moralizing can do it. You can go to some church and get moralized every Sunday and maybe even every Wednesday, if you’re really diligent to go after moralizing, but moralizing won’t give you the knowledge of the Gospel. Moralizing won’t give you the knowledge of how you can receive, freely, the Nature of Jesus Christ. It won’t give you that confidence that this is your gift from God, that this is the reconciliation that He gave you at the Cross (Romans 5:10-11; 2 Corinthians 5:18-20; Colossians 1:21-22)

He took your life, nailed it on the Cross, and gave you His Life. As Paul proclaimed, (Gal.2:20) I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that [life] which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, [the faith] which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me. In other words, “Now it’s no longer I that live, it’s Christ that lives in me.” (Pro.2:16 ) To deliver thee from the strange woman, Even from the foreigner that flattereth with her words (Those apostate preachers will make it easy for you. They will invite you to believe in ‘once saved, always saved.’ You won’t have to do anything; just believe it.” They will lead you in their crooked ways and in their wayward paths.); (17) That forsaketh the friend of her youth (That’s the One Who saved you in the beginning, Jesus, the One you loved in the beginning. Now they want to give you another “Jesus” and another “gospel” and another “spirit.”), And forgetteth the covenant of her God… Some people don’t even get to know that Covenant before they’re led astray from the Bible by the teachings of men. 

As Jesus said to the Pharisees of His day, (Mar.7:6) … Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoreth me with their lips, But their heart is far from me. (7) But in vain do they worship me, Teaching as their doctrines the precepts of men. (8) Ye leave the commandment of God, and hold fast the tradition of men. (9) … Full well do ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your tradition… (13) making void the word of God by your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things ye do. 

There’s no difference in the nature of man from the time Jesus said that until now. We must repent and believe what He says; this is how we are re-programmed to walk the straight walk. (Pro.2:18) For her house inclineth unto death, And her paths unto the dead. It’s true; every one of those harlots’ houses “inclineth unto death.” A sister I once knew shared this dream with me. She said, “I went to three doors and knocked on them, and every time, a harlot answered the door. Then the fourth time, I went and knocked on your door, and I saw you. What do you think that means?” So I asked, “How many religions have you gone to?” She answered, “Three.” I told her, “Yeah, that’s what I thought.” (Pro.2:19) None that go unto her return again, Neither do they attain unto the paths of life: (20) That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, And keep the paths of the righteous. (21) For the upright shall dwell in the land… 

This is the land of God’s people, the Promised Land, and each promise that we read in the Word will become ours if we are bold to stand on it. (Deu.11:24) Every place whereon the sole of your foot shall tread shall be yours… God is saying, “Every place you put your foot, I will give it to you.” God has given us this “land” that we walk in, which is this flesh that comes from the earth, in order for us to conquer it. And those tribes that originally inhabited the land, the Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, and so on (Deuteronomy 7:1-3), all represent the lusts of the “old man” that had to be conquered in order to take that land for the spiritual man, Jesus Christ, Who is (Col.1:27) … Christ in you, the hope of glory. He’s growing in you like a little baby. You must feed Him; don’t feed the flesh, feed Him. 

(Mat.12:46) While he (Jesus) was yet speaking to the multitudes, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, seeking to speak to him. (47) And one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, seeking to speak to thee. (48) But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren? (49) And he stretched forth his hand towards his disciples, and said, Behold, my mother and my brethren! (50) For whosoever shall do the will of my Father who is in heaven, he is my brother, and sister, and mother. Those who do the Will of the Father are those who are bringing forth the fruit of Jesus Christ in their life. 

(Pro.2:21) For the upright shall dwell in the land, And the perfect shall remain in it. There is a great falling-away because there is a broad road to destruction, as Jesus said. (Mat.7:13) Enter ye in by the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many are they that enter in thereby. (14) For narrow is the gate, and straitened the way, that leadeth unto life, and few are they that find it. We don’t know the narrow road unless we study the wisdom of God, which is all through the Bible. (2Jn.1:9) Whosoever goeth onward and abideth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the teaching, the same hath both the Father and the Son. 

It’s not who starts out with you; it’s who continues. There are lots of people who think they know the teaching, but they’re getting it second-, third-, fourth-, fifth-hand. The only way you’re going to know the teaching and the wisdom of God is to study the Word and seek out the wisdom of God for yourself. Don’t go into a dead church and be leavened the rest of your life. We just read that people go there and they don’t ever come out! They’re wasting their life, never coming to know the wisdom of God. (Pro.2:21) For the upright shall dwell in the land, And the perfect shall remain in it. (“Perfect” is a word that also means “mature.” Those who come into the Image of Christ are mature.) (22) But the wicked shall be cut off from the land, And the treacherous shall be rooted out of it. This is still talking about the same people; the wicked are the treacherous. (Mat.22:14) For many are called, but few chosen. 

You see, the wicked may start out with you, but they don’t finish with you. (1Jn.2:19) They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but [they went out,] that they might be made manifest that they all are not of us. The wicked will be cut off from the land, which is the Land of Promise. They will not know the promises, they will not live by the promises. Paul exhorted God’s people to not be sons of the “handmaid,” but to be sons of the “freewoman,” because it’s going to be proven that not everyone who is a son of Abraham is chosen. Many are called, but few are chosen. (Gal.4:22) For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, one by the handmaid, and one by the freewoman. (23) Howbeit the son by the handmaid is born after the flesh; but the [son] by the freewoman [is born] through promise. 

The promise is what begets you again unto Jesus Christ and everything that He is and all that He does and thinks. It’s the promise that does this. It is not being moralized; it is not joining a religion. The son of the free-woman is born through promise.

Abraham so badly wanted Ishmael to be chosen by God, and I, too, have wanted people to be chosen by God, and I, too, have “sown seed” in both the “freewoman” and the “handmaid.” And when the sons of the handmaid begin to fall away, I cry for them, but they are manifesting who they are. (Gal.4:24) Which things contain an allegory: for these [women] are two covenants; one from mount Sinai, bearing children unto bondage, which is Hagar. If you’re born of “Hagar” then you’re in bondage. Even while you’re in religion, you can be in bondage just as the Israelites were. They were in so much bondage that when Jesus came to bring them to the higher order, they refused to come out of bondage. 

(25) Now this Hagar is mount Sinai in Arabia (It was the Israelites who went to Mount Sinai and so Paul is applying this to them, because they were in bondage and they didn’t know it.) and answereth to the Jerusalem that now is (That’s the physical Jerusalem over there in the Middle East that’s in bondage.): for she is in bondage with her children. (26) But the Jerusalem that is above is free, which is our mother. Praise the Lord! We are being born of the Word from above, first spirit, then soul, and then body. 

The “soul” is the mind, the will, and the emotions. Your soul has to walk after the Spirit to receive the nature of that Spirit in order for you to bear His fruit in your soul. (Rom.8:13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. When you were first saved, you received a born again spirit, but now you have to go on to bear fruit in your soul. Only if you bear the fruit, which is Christ-likeness, will you get that new body, the born-again body, like His Body. 

Now those harlots’ houses tell you to just “step over the line” and that all you need to be is born-again in your spirit. No, that’s not enough because you haven’t borne fruit in your soul yet. So how do you bear fruit? The way you bear fruit immediately is that you believe you have received. Jesus said, (Mar.11:24) … All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe ye received (The Greek word there lambanó is past tense in the original.) them, and ye shall have them. You walk by faith for them until you see them. This way you are accounted as righteous until you are righteous, which is bearing fruit. Everything that the Lord offers will be nothing to the person who doesn’t reach out and receive the promises by faith. They will not come to pass, and Paul tells us why. (Heb.4:2) … The word of hearing did not profit them, because it was not united by faith with them that heard. You see, they didn’t mix faith with the words. (Escape the Falling Away PDF)

 

Jesus Chooses the Meal Planners for His Bride

Anonymous - 12/24/21 (David’s notes in red)

I dreamed I was in an apartment with white walls. Many were in the apartment with me and I knew we all had to share the space(Eph. 2:19-22 So then ye are no more strangers and sojourners, but ye are fellow-citizens with the saints, and of the household of God, 20 being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone; 21 in whom each several building, fitly framed together, groweth into a holy temple in the Lord; 22 in whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.)

There were men sitting around the dining table talking and discussing ministry plans and kingdom matters(I believe these are the apostate ministers who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. They are not interested in serving the food to the people. They are living high off the hog but feeding left over scraps to the people.)

There were women standing around and talking in small groups. They all seemed to have grouped together according to their traits or commonalities and the things they enjoyed or thought were important. There was one woman in the kitchen area who was on the phone all the time. She was sort of a busy body and liked to gossip about all the latest happenings and what was going on with different people. (These represent the denominations and sects of Christianity.)

At first, I was in the living room organizing and getting rid of clutter. This was a challenge for me because sometimes I didn’t know what was important to keep and what was needing to be thrown out. I was dealing with some issues myself, but I kept my focus and continued, as best I could, to clean and organize the place to make it nice for the others. (As we grow and mature in Christ, He helps us to discern what we need to get rid of in our lives so that we can be better ambassadors for Christ to others.)

I was keeping my nose to the grindstone, so to speak, and not allowing myself to be distracted with the different groups of women even though I overheard occasionally what they were saying. (If we stay focused on living the Word in our lives every day, we will not get distracted and off course with the sects.)

I ended up in the kitchen with a meal planner book on top of the stove and a notepad. I was working hard to plan meals every week and preparing to go to the store with my list to buy the items that I needed to make the meals when Jesus appeared in front of me. (Representing prioritizing my own spiritual food needs so that I would be healthy to be what the Kingdom and its people need.  I.e. to hear the Gospel and be an example of discipleship that others be edified.)

He was very tall with broad shoulders and dressed like I imagine he would have been dressed when he walked with His disciples the first time He came to earth. David was filling the inside of Jesus. I.E Jesus was filled with David. (This is the make up of the David Man-child body of reformers. 

2Co 3:18  But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.  

1Jn 2:4-6  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him;  5  but whoso keepeth his word, in him verily hath the love of God been perfected. Hereby we know that we are in him:  6  he that saith he abideth in him ought himself also to walk even as he walked.)

David in Jesus looked for me right away and came into the kitchen. He had passed by the other groups of women and found me diligently planning the meals and He held out His hand to me(Song 6:8-9 There are threescore queens, and fourscore concubines, And virgins without number. 9 My dove, my undefiled, is but one; She is the only one of her mother; She is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and called her blessed; Yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.)

I looked up from my lists and the meal planner and noticed Jesus standing in front of me with His hand extended. I was surprised to see Him and I took His hand. (Pro. 31:13-31 She seeketh wool and flax, And worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchant-ships; She bringeth her bread from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, And giveth food to her household, And their task to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it; With the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, And maketh strong her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is profitable: Her lamp goeth not out by night... 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; Yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy... 25 Strength and dignity are her clothing; And she laugheth at the time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; And the law of kindness is on her tongue. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, And eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children rise up, and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praiseth her, saying: 29 Many daughters have done worthily, But thou excellest them all. 30 Grace is deceitful, and beauty is vain; But a woman that feareth Jehovah, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; And let her works praise her in the gates.)

He announced to me in everyones hearing, “I choose you.” (When the Man-child comes abiding in Christ he will do what Jesus did, chose who John the Baptist said was the Bride.)  I was surprised because I knew all of my own struggles. I looked around to all the other groups of women and asked Him, “Why not them?” They also seemed to be busy and belong to the kingdom. They had gifts the Lord had given them. But they did not seem impressed or even aware of the Lord’s presence(Many won’t recognize Christ in the Man-child ministers when He appears again because this is history repeating.)

He said, "They put on outward shows of importance and busyness but they were not about My Father’s business.” I began to look around at the different groups of women. One group was talking about shopping trips, hobbies and superficial things and the Lord said, “They have no depth” (Meaning of relationship with Him.  Mark 4:5-6 And other fell on the rocky ground, where it had not much earth; and straightway it sprang up, because it had no deepness of earth: 6 and when the sun was risen, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. 

I looked at another group who seemed, at least outwardly, to put on a good show of piety and gifts and good works but they were doing these things to impress the others and to gain the approval of men but they were idle when no one was looking. The Lord said of this group, “They think they are deserving of the position because of what they have done and the praise they receive from one another and from men. But they are idle with most of their time and not good stewards with what they’ve been given. They justify themselves and prate their time away.” (Mat. 23:28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but inwardly ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.)

Then I looked at the woman who had been standing in the kitchen behind me on the phone and said, “What of her?” The Lord said, “She is least of all; a gossip and a busy body. She and her works are not pleasing to My Father.” She had filled up all her time with unprofitable words; many times under the guise of concern and prayer requests for others and their situations, but in reality this fueled her fleshly desire to gossip and know everybody else’s business. (1Ti. 5:13 And withal they learn also to be idle, going about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.)

I asked Him, “Well, why me? I also have struggled and am not perfect. It’s hard for me to organize and know what to throw out and get rid of so that your house is not cluttered, although I do the best I can.”

He said, “When I came, you were the one I found diligently working. My Father is pleased with your planning of the meals.” Then I woke up.

I thought of this text in Mat 24:42-46  Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through. 44 Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath set over his household, to give them their food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, that he will set him over all that he hath.
