Separation ” Breaking Bad Linkage.”


20140526-220517-79517686.jpg
Separation.
2 Corinthians 6:14-18, 1 John 2:15-17

Separation is an act or instance of separating oneself or a state of being separated.

It is a line or a point of parting, a gap, hole, rent.

The synonyms of separation also means: a break, departure, detachment, disconnection, disengagement, disjunction, dissociation, dissolution, disunion, division, divorce, leave-taking, gap, rupture, split-up.

From our definitions and synonyms we have been able to define separation as an overall act of isolating ourselves.

As Christians God is particular about our lives and how we live it, and with who are we living it with. God specifically gave us some warnings/instructions in the first five books of the Bible, of things, people and places we must separate ourselves from.

From our text 2 Corinthians 6:14-18, we are able to understand certain principles of God. This is making us to understand that some things will not work together because they are two opposite things heading in an opposite direction. E.g. Light & Darkness.

This series of Teachings will make us understand that separation is not just a thing of the mind; it’s also a physical achievement.

These teachings will also make us understand that our flesh and spirit must work together for us to be able to live a life pleasing to God.

God Has given us lots of promises 2 Corinthians 7:1, but there are conditions attached to them. 2 Corinthians 6; 14-16.

The base lines for these blessings are Separation/Holiness.

– Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers 2 Corinthians 6:14-16.

It is wrong for Gods people to join alliance with the wicked because they belong to different and opposite camp.

Our relationship and life style must be with caution, in accordance to Gods principles. We as children of God should move along with Gods children. ‘Like Begat Like’.

We should not yoke ourselves with friendship and acquaintance with wicked men and unbelievers. Although we cannot wholly avoid seeing, hearing and being with such people, yet we should never choose them for our closet circles.

It’s impossible to join righteousness and unrighteousness, light and darkness, fire and water. What comfortable communions have these two opposite things?

Come out from among them and be ye separate from them and touch no the Unclean things. 2 Corinthians 6:17

The passage clearly states that we should come out from among them from among them and keep a long distance/gap so we won’t be contaminated.

Touch not the unclean things so we won’t be defiled.

Separation from the things of the World.

Be crucified to the world; be mortified to the things, affairs and enticement of it. Galatians 2:20.

Our love should be reserved for God only.

Our hearts is narrow and cannot contain both loves.

The world draws down the heart from God. So the more the love of the world prevails, the more the love of God dwindles and decays.

The love of this world is not form the father (God Almighty). There is a great affinity and alliance between this world and the flesh. This world intrudes and encroaches upon the flesh and there by acting against Gods plans and purpose for our lives.

The things of this world are divided into 3.

· The lust of the flesh 1 John 2:16.

It is subjectively the humor and appetite of indulging fleshy pleasures and objectively all those things that excite and inflame the pleasures of the flesh.

· The lust of the eyes.

The eyes are delighted with treasures of.

~ Lust of women Matthew 5:28.

~ Eyes full of adultery, even men with men and women with women. 2 Pt 2:14, Rom 1:18-28.

~ Covetousness Ps 10:8.

~ All things Desired. Eccl 2:10.

~ All kinds of evil Mt 6:23; 7:22.

~ Idol worshiping. Ezk 6:9; 18:6-15.

· Pride of life.

Which are: Self-righteousness Job 32:1; Position Gen 8:5, Ezk 28:5, 1 Tim 3:6; Power Lev 26:19; Riches Ps 39:6.

The lust and appetite to these things must be mortified and subdued.

1 John 2:17 says “ the world passes away and the lust thereof”

But “he that does the will of the father abides forever”

Finally:

2 Corinthians 6:18. God Has promise to be a father to them and they will be His children. What greater honor and happiness can be compared to this?

10 blessings of doing Gods will.

· Entrance into the kingdom Mt 7:21.

· Keeps you from falling Mt 7:24-29.

· Confirmation that one’s deeds are of God Jn 3:27.

· Answers to prayers Jn 9:31.

· Being blessed James 1:22-25.

· Never moved Ps 15:1-5.

· Abide forever 1 Jn 2:17.

· The new birth 1Jn 2:29.

· Righteousness like Christ 1Jn 3:7.

· Confirmation of sonship 3 Jn 1:11.
REMEMBER: LIGHT AND DARKNESS NEVER WORKED AND NEVER WILL

The Young Age & Their Battles.


20140521-230744-83264717.jpg
The battle for the young: First of all I would like to explain who a young man or woman is; and why is it so important for us to attend to the issues of life at the young age.
Life is a battlefield; life is a mystery and it takes an Extraordinary man to understand the issues of life.
The Young age is a time of planning & preparation, a time where priorities are kept Isaiah 28:10
“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: – “ & Principles followed with maximum attention.
God is so much interested with your age and the young people ( Youth ). 1 John 2:1-14 explains His interest for the Little Children & The Youth. Vs 13-14 say ” the young me have overcome the wicked one”
To overcome this wicked one We Need To Fight. Not the physical battle, ” we wrestle not against flesh nor blood”; but the spiritual battle. For we know the spiritual controls the physical.

The Young age is a time of Visions and Prophesies for the future. According to Joel 2:28 ” Sons & Daughters shall Prophecy, now watch this: ; and- Young People Shall See Vi, and the Old shall Dream Dreams.” The old are dreaming dreams of their life’s activity( their young age) because they are above the age of strength.

What is Dream and what is a Vision.
Dreams could be as a result of your daily activity. Scientists can define Dreams but not Visions.
Vision is not about the past or activities of previous times. It’s all about the Future. Also Prophesy. A Prophesy that talks about the past is no Prophesy. In the school of Heaven, you will work for everything you have. There are no Double Promotions. It’s important to see the vision of your life now.

Your Vision and Destiny determines the Decisions you are making now and the kind of life you intend living in future.

Life is not magic; there are no Short-Cut: if you decide to take a Short-Cut you will be Cut-Short.

The battles of life will confront you; adversity will surely come sooner or later, proverbs 24:10 say

If you Faint in the day Of Adversity; Your strength is weak!!

meaning adversity will definitely come.
But your preparation will determine your approach towards that day. You will either encourage yourself in The Lord like David or you will blame God like Job!!!!

Lamentations 3:26-27
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
27 It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

Bear your burden in your youth; when you still have strength to pray and fast, when you are not thinking about your own family. The burden is all way round, both Educational; Social; life on its own is stressful, but if you Plan Now; You are Planing Well, and you will Enjoy the Fruits of your Labour in Future. The opposite is the case for those who do not Plan Now. ” They are Planing to Fail.”

Biblical Definition Of Battle:
Job 14:1; Job 5:6-7; Job 7:1; Proverbs 24:10.

Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. -Job 14:1
This is the simplest definition. The Bible is too accurate to tell lies. Problems are everywhere. The earlier you begin to address the issues of life the better for you.
Job 5:6-7. Trouble cannot be thrown aside. It must be dealt with and not swept aside.
How do I fight my battles? Blindly or Wisely. I must be as wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove
David fought his battles earlier before even meeting Goliath.
Daniel and the three Hebrew boys: Daniel 3:14-25; Joseph, Gen 37. They all fought their battles at their young age.

The glory you will get on your day of reckoning or recognition is the last blow to the battle you had fought or have been fighting. In your wilderness journey, understand every way and path you are taking because you will still come back to those paths and you will help others come out of theirs.

People who did not Fight their Battles at their Young Age:

Moses did not deal with his battle at his young age, (Anger) it followed him up to his old age and appeared at the Peak of his breakthrough; when he stroked the rock instead of speaking to it. That was what stopped him from entering into the promise land. Deut 3:23-28.
Jacob did not deal with the issues he had with Esau, he kept it for 20 years. Then Esau was ONE MAN, twenty years later Esau had 400 MEN with him. Gen 32:6.
Job issues began when he was already old and he was busy blaming God; instead of attacking the devil.

In conclusion; We should make good use of our youthful age, and avoid everything that will jeopardize our future.
We should put God first in everything we do and our action should reflect Christ.
We need to commit our lives and plans to God; because whatever is committed to God’s care, He is Oblige to Protect that thing and He will surely Do.
We have to let Him guide us on how to address the issues and matters of our lives.
And pray earnestly for His leading and direction in every step we take; just like Moses and Joshua did.

Your Heart & Your Thoughts Determines The Life You Live. Proverbs 4:20-27.


Image

The Bible has warned us not to do evil, in this same verse teaches us how to do well. It is not sufficient only to avoid the occasion of sinning but we should study the methods of avoiding them.

1. We must have a continual regard to the word of God and endeavor that it may be always ready to us.
Wisdom & understanding must be our principle guide & teacher. Proverbs 4:7.
We must receive them readily: ” incline thy ear to them, humbly bow to them; diligently listen to them.”
The attentive hearing of the word of God is a good sign of a work of grace begun in the heart and a good means of carrying it on.
We must retain them carefully and lay them before us as ” Our Rule.”
” Let them not depart from thy eyes; view them, review them and in everything aim to conform to them.” We must lodge them within us as a commanding principle, the influences of which are diffused throughout the whole man: ” keep them in the midst of thy heart, as things dear to thee, and which thou art afraid of losing.”
Let the word of God be written in the heart, and that which is written there will remain.
– The reason why we must thus make much of the words of wisdom is because they will both food and physic to us, like the tree of life, Rev. 22:2; Eze 47:12. Those that seek and find them, find and keep them, shall find in them.

2. We must keep a watchful eye and a strict hand upon all the motions of our inward man Proverbs 4:23 is a great duty required by wisdom, and in order to our getting and preserving wisdom: keep thy heart with all diligence. God, who gave us these souls, gave us a strict charge with them: Man, Woman, keep thy heart; take heed to thy spirit. Deu 4:9. We must maintain a holy jealousy of ourselves, and set a strict guard, accordingly, upon all avenues of the soul; keep our heart from doing hurt and getting hurt, from being defiled by sin and disturbed by trouble; keep them as our jewel, as our vineyard; keep a conscience void of offense; keep our bad thoughts; keep up good thoughts: keep the affections upon right objects and things.
There are many ways of keeping things- by care, by strength, by calling in help, and we must use them all in keeping our hearts.
– We must also keep our eyes (Job 31:1a); Our tongues (Psalm 34:13); keep our feet (Eccl 5:1); but above all,” Our Hearts.” A good reason is that ” Out of it are the Issues of Life.” Out of a heart well kept will flow living issues, good product to the glory of God.

3. We must set a watch before the door of our lips, that we offend not with our tongue Pro 4:24: ” Put away from Thee froward mouth and perverse lips

4. We must make a covenant with our eyes: ” Let them look right on and straight before thee, Proverbs 4:25. Let the eye be fixed and not wandering; let it not robe after everything that presents itself, for then it will be diverted from good and ensnared in evil. Turn it from beholding vanity; let thy eye be single and not divided; let thy intention be sincere and uniform.”
We must keep our eye upon our Master, keep our eye upon our rule, and conform to that; We must keep our eye upon our mark, ” the price of the calling ” Phil 2:14.

5. We must act considerately in all we do Proverbs 4:26: ponder the path of thy feet, weigh it; ” put the word of God in on scale, and what thou has done, or art about to do, in order, see how thy agree; be nice and critical in examining whether thy way be good before The Lord and whether it will end well.”
We must consider our past ways and examine what we have done, and our present ways, what we are doing, and see that we walk circumspectly. ( with cautions ).
We must act with steadiness, cautions, and consistency: ” Let all thy ways be established Proverbs 4:26 and be not unstable in them, as the double-minded man is. Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy feet from Evil.

Conclusion:
Many people dream of sin, imagine sin, and—if granted the opportunity—would indulge in sin. All they lack is the occasion to sin. So, in the sight of God, they are sinners as great as though they actually had committed immorality. All transgressions begin with sinful thinking.

You who have come to Christ for a pure heart, guard against the pictures of lewdness and sensuality which Satan flashes upon the screen of your imagination, select with care the books you read, choose discerningly the kind of entertainment you attend, the kind of associates with whom you mingle, and the kind of environment in which you place yourself. You should no more allow sinful imaginations to accumulate in your mind and soul than you would let garbage collect in your living room.
