I pray my mail meets you on fire for your God!
In times like this, I admonish every believer to take time to understand the very nature and contents of their human hearts. As I stated in part I of this end-time message, God is coming to judge the hearts of men. Where those hearts have not been renewed by the power of the cross and the gift of the Holy spirit, such hearts would not make it before God. Therefore , as you and I must prepare for the glorious coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, we need to ensure that we are ready and that we are confident that we will make it to heaven!
Jeremiah 17:9 states, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Proverbs 23:7 declares, “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”.
So it is what is inside of you that makes who you are and not what you consciously show men outwardly. The word of God says “who can know the heart of men”? This means that it is humanly impossible to discern the very thoughts that are in the heart of men except through God’s revelation and His word. The bible states that the word of God (which is God himself, Our Lord Jesus and the Holy spirit) is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart of men. Hebrew 4:12 ( from the Amplified Version of the bible) says clearly:
For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
So when you say you know me, what you are really saying is that you know what I show you but not necessarily what I am thinking deep inside of me.
You may then say, how is it possible to show something that is not really you? Of course, it is very possible because man has an ability retain information and conceal thoughts; he chooses what to say and when to say it and how to say it; in order words, he can pretend for however long a time he has trained himself to do this. In truth, the bible states in Luke 6:45,
The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
This means the heart stores up thoughts and the mouth would only speak when there is an overflow of those thoughts. The fact that you don’t speak out those evil thoughts does not mean that you are not thinking them.
Isaiah 58 confirms this where it says that we try to indicate a condition of heart that we do not have when we are fasting!
Therefore, my beloved sisters, let us truly examine the state of our hearts and ensure that what is in there would be most pleasing to our heavenly father when he comes to judge the entire world. Let our inward man be what is manifested or seen on the outward. Not only will those around you be truly blessed but more especially, you will be well prepared to meet your king!
I love you dearly and count it an honour to always share His truths with you.
