Matthew 12:30 “Whoever is not with ME is against ME, and whoever does not gather with ME scatters.”
With Souls of the SAVIOUR!
By closing the eyes, and stopping one’s ears;the heart then…is closed.
By gathering “kin-folk”, (like-minded non-thinkers); their output is lesser than none.
Consequently, indeed! No spiritual gain then comes from emptied jars.
How worthless of value no matter how many one brings close together!
As such, gather closest with those of like heart, till both ears and eyes behold CHRIST!
As HIServant compelled, seeking those of such Faith,
Devotional: Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered in MY NAME, there am I among them.”
Gathering with other souls, pressing into HIS presence…is a most favorable action. It’s joining with the humbled souls who serving the SAVIOUR.
But too often, people compromise the content in favor of the social offerings.
What happens then is people argue over points needlessly. Such foolish debates erode the Faith of the Body overall as well as individually.
Hebrews 11:1 “Now Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
But when people go to a church they really have no faith to congregate with, they inevitably argue with those who HAVE faith.
If one doesn’t believe in a pre-trib rapture yet chooses to go to a church that does AND argues vehemently with those saints…do they’re efforts build up the Body?
1 Corinthians 16:13 “Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong!”
Meaning: Stand strong in Faith and reprove those faithless who love arguing. Protect each other through fervent prayer and weed out those whose zeal is only self – facing.
Amen and amen!
