Isaiah 43:23-26 “Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honored me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense.
Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
What God says when we appear before him…he says he doesn’t want vain oblation,he says incense is abomination to him he doesn’t like it, the new moon and sanath and calling of assembly is like an iniquity and moreover the dignified meetinng.when you will stand before his Judgement will he ask you KJV is best or NIV is best, or Apostle Paul was an Advocate or a preacher,or he will ask you in which scripture which chapter in which verse my commandments is written.?….No he will not , because in the Isaiah 1:13 -18 says that he don’t want vain oblation, abomination of incense, Sabbath, New Moon, Calling of assemblies, dignified meeting, appointed Feasts, he said my soul hated them, and I am weary to bear them .
What he will ask you that I have sent my prophets, you killed them you have not listened to them ,I have sent my only son you also have killed him.you have not listened to him.he was sent to you to change your ways change your lifestyle,change your attitude,changed your heart ,change your mind.have you listened ,even long before I was trying to settle all things with you ,let’s settle it, justify yourself. Have you done it,”No you have not done it then what mouth you say that you are a believer, you are religious, you are Righteous, you are
The God’s people, he will clearly be denied that he knows us.read Matthew 7:21-23 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:24-27 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
What God wants from us and what is his expectations and wish from his people his children is documented in
Revelation 3:5 “He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.”
We celebrate Sabbath day ,we put incense in front of him ,we do prayer meetings,we go to church , we celebrate all the festival,we take sacrament for what to please him or to Showing the world that we are religious ,we are devotees, aren’t these things we do is for self justification or pleasing people. Because none of these things is receivable in front him.
God says he hates New moon and our appointed feasts, he is saying his soul hates that and it is like a trouble to him and it’s causing fatigue to him.myoul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
He says that when you pray to me I will not listen not see that..that is why your prayers go unanswered.. because of your disobedience and iniquities you have created a wall between…
He says let’s reason together, because of your iniquities you have made me serve with your sins and that wearied me with your iniquities.
Let’s get on face to face with your reasoning of justification…
Do the will of my heart …God says I assured you whatever may be the colors of your sins, Scarlet they shall become white as snow and if they are crimson they shall be like wool.if we read the Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.” He specifically said, “I even I am that blotteth out thy transgressions.”
What he wants to see in us, we need to concentrate on what he says.
God’s main concern is that we do his will not just waste of time of doing such things which he doesn’t like .if we are saved we should bear fruits, fruits of the holy spirit, Jesus doesn’t come to seek us he came here to seek the fruits in us.
God’s ultimate aim for all of us is sanctification in Him, to bear fruits of the gift he has given by saving us from the blood of his only son Jesus.the very First of Sanctification is Repentance of our sins then washed in the blood of Christ and part of that sanctification process has to go with the Anointing the gift of the Holy Spirit and Himself transmitting 9 specific divine qualities and attributes into our personalities.
Apostle Paul talked about these 9 Gifts.and their fruits.
If we look into the scripture of Matthew 3:16 “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:”
Jesus didn’t come to seek the Gifts in us but he came here to Seek the fruits of those gifts in us the “Believers.”
When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.the holy spirit descended to him from heaven in bodily form like a gentle “Dove”.Holy Spirit descended and enlightened upon Jesus Christ.
he knew the power of Holy Spirit that is why he said I will send you another comforter which will guide you, give you Wisdom and knowledge.
If we see Dove he is a very gentle and innocent bird among all other birds.Dove has two wings and each wing denotes the Gifts .when you investigate him beneath his two wings there are 9 more feathers, so one wing denotes the Gifts and another wing signifies the fruits of Holy Spirit.
If we look into the scripture of ( Mark 11:12-14,20-21 ) While coming from Bethany Jesus saw a Fig tree ,he drew his eyes on it to find fruit on it as he was Hungary but except for the leaves he couldn’t find the fruits there are only leaves on it so he cursed it and said no man will eat it thereafter and ever .And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
Like this God wants us a fruit-bearing branch, we are the branches and Jesus Christ himself is a wine, the life flows into the branch and enables them to bear fruits.
1 Corinthians 12:7 says “ But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
Let God know that we will be living vessel for the manifestation of these gifts.and that we will give him a full green light signal to manifest these gifts through us at any time that he will want to do so.
It’s like an ammunition we will need to go to war for the Lord to help set the captives free from bondage.Bible tells us how to become the Good soldier of Jesus Christ.
