Forsake Not to Assemble
During this week of study and prayer the Lord led me to the book of Hebrews. What a powerful charge to keep the faith in times of adversity and pandemic. The writer of Hebrews is unclear, some argue Paul may have written it or another Apostle, but one thing we can read clearly is the exhortation to hold fast the profession of our faith. One clear thought emerges from the chapters of Hebrews and that is FORSAKE NOT! We are not to forsake the Word, the teaching, the worship, the praise, the fellowship, nor the work of the ministry! And lastly, we are not to forsake the house of the Lord!
Let us take a look at Hebrews Chapter 10 and verses 23-26: “23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised; 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,” I’m going to make a very blunt statement right here, forsaking the assembly (The House Of God/Church) is a sin and according to this scripture “there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins”. In other words, if you know to gather for worship and you do not, your backslid and on your way to hell according to this scripture. It is a SIN to forsake the House of God, the work of God, and the gathering together to avail ourselves to the teaching of God!
Let me make one thing very clear for you today my friend, it does not matter what the Government says, what politicians say, what local authorities say, we are to assemble ourselves together and even more so as we see that day approaching. “That day” refers to the coming of the Lord (the last days)! It is commanded in the Bible to come together for worship meetings, revival meetings, healing meetings, teaching meetings, and certainly weekly Sunday worship services! We are not ruled by politically motivated government edicts and ordinances restricting our right to assemble for worship! We do not submit to authorities who seek to prevent the practice of our faith! No! We are to come together even more so as we see the last days approaching! Now many will say, well what about people infected with a virus, or sick? Well the Bible makes it very clear what we are to do. James 5:14 declares: “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:” It didn’t say stay home and obey orders from democrat left wing influenced government officials! It says call for the elders of the church!
We do not need the public sector, governments ect., telling us how to handle our affairs. We do not live by the rule of the CDC!, we live by the rule of faith outlined in the Word of God! No offense, but I believe this “pandemic” has given not only the devil, but backslid Christians an excuse not to go to church and participate in the things of God! God did not call us out of darkness to hide out in our homes nestled up to a demonically inspired television set or iPad, pumping us full of worldly shows and news outlets! No, we have been called out of a life of sin and depravity to shine the light of the Gospel for the world to see! You see the devil would love to shut down the church all together. There is nothing better for his kingdom than to silence the church and the ministers of God! But we must not back down! We must not be silent! We are going to rise and take our rightful place at the head of the table and take dominion over this wicked country and the world!
We have the power through the name of Jesus Christ to take dominion over this hell bound planet we live on! Jesus gave us the authority and the power to declare the Word of the Lord into the darkness of night and bring the light of the Word of God into it! Countless souls are waiting and ready to be pulled out of the clutches of hell! Out of the clutches of immorality! Out of the clutches of homosexuality and gender perversions! God is ready to reveal His power through His people today! We are not to slide back into perdition and wavering as the manner of some is! We are not to acquiesce to a lukewarm backslid Christianity that complies with whatever orders the left-wing sinners give it! We are to be strong in the Lord! Vigilant in the face of opposition and adversity!
We are compelled by Hebrews Chapter 2:1 “Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.” We are to give ear to the teaching of the Apostles! The truth of the Word of God! And to be aware that at any time if we neglect the things of God, they should slip from us. This stark warning in Hebrews is a sobering reminder of the fact that you can backslide. A lot of Christianity today teaches a false “grace” message that basically says everybody is saved and they can pretty much do what they want because Gods grace covers them. Well this is simply just plain old false! It is interesting to me that the “father” of this “false grace” message Martin Luther was said to have wanted to rip Hebrews out of the Bible. Well I can clearly see why. It totally contradicts one saved always saved heresy!
We are “to give the more earnest heed”. In other words, we are to pay especially close attention to the teachings of the Apostles and the Word of God. We are to draw even closer to the things of the Spirit! We are not to fall back or take a vacation from the house of God and the study and teaching of the Word! No, we are to pull even closer! Get even hotter for God! We are to come together even more! Have more revivals! Have more worship services! Have more Bible studies! Have more fellowship with each other! Have more prayer meetings! Have more giving and sharing the things of the Kingdom of God! More! Not less! More! More! More!! Praise God Almighty! I want more! And today we must have a heart for more of God! More of the presence of God! More worship of Him! More service to Him! Our hearts cry today should more of Him, and less of me!! God bless you today!
