And there is nothing in all creation hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to render an account. Hebrews 4:13.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
If you want to live the perfect life of walking in the Spirit and not in the flesh there are three points that are the most important of all because they will keep you on track and guide your daily decisions. These are what you must keep in focus at all times for the devil will fight these and use all his arsenal to get you off track for he acts through the emotions, that is, through the flesh.
All three points define a life of transparency, that is, nothing in your life you must conceal from the light by hiding it under the cover of darkness—nothing in your life you must conceal from My sight or the sight of your fellow men for fear you will be exposed and found out. This concealment happened the first time when Adam and Eve hid from Me after they sinned, they tried to hide from exposure what they had done, covering their nakedness so I would not see it.
Walking in the Spirit, the perfect life, is walking in the light.
This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:5-7.
I am love and I am light. There is nothing in Me but goodness. There is nothing I need to conceal or hide from you, all My goodness, light and love is open to you and ready for you to partake in. The devil told Adam and Eve I was concealing things from them, but that is not true, but, of course, lying is his nature since his fall. He is the master of deceit and hiding in darkness. Think of who your master is next time you must conceal from others what you have done for fear of it coming into the light.
“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God.” John 3:19-21.
Have you ever noticed that when a child is doing what you have told him not to do when you come into the room unexpectedly he tries to hide away from your sight what he is doing? This is what I am talking about. And this leads to the first of the three important things you must keep in your sight at all times.
I. You Must Account to Me with whom you have to do. Hebrews 4:13.
And there is nothing in all creation hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to render an account. Hebrews 4:13.
And before I continue I would like you to look more deeply at this passage in the language in which it was first written, that is, Greek. The words translated as “with whom we have to render an account” or “with whom we have to do” are the words, “the One to whom we must give the word (logos),” that is, your testimony, your narrative, your report, the words of your life. “By your words you are acquitted and by your words you are condemned.” But more on this under the second important thing to keep in mind. And the word translated “laid bare” or “exposed” is trachēlizō, which means “to make bare or expose the throat.”
All things are open (uncovered) to Me and it is ultimately only to Me you must render an account of all you have done in the body.
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:10.
My servant Paul wrote that reminder to the church at Corinth, that is, to Spirit filled believers. You who have taken Jesus as Lord are saved from condemnation to hell for your names are inscribed in the Lamb’s Book of Life eternally but your rewards and positions in the Kingdom are determined by your thoughts, words, and deeds done in your body. Always remember this: every challenge, test and trial that comes your way is an opportunity for promotion in My Kingdom. Think about that next time you want to vent your anger.
I am your audience of One, what anyone else thinks of you or judges you upon does not really matter when you pass from this life.
I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me. Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men’s hearts; and then each man’s praise will come to him from God. 1 Corinthians 4:3-5.
Remember what I told Peter when he wanted to know what My plans for John were in comparison to what I had told him the future held for him? “How does that concern you, your business is to follow Me.” He wanted to look at John to see if I was playing favorites but I am not. Each person’s plan is the best life for him or her. However, some draw closer to Me than others, some people’s hearts are more turned to Me than others, and to them I give more responsibility as trustworthy. If you draw close to Me, I draw close to you. If you call to Me, I answer you and tell you great and mighty things you could not know. It is not Me playing favorites it is you finding Me your favorite that determines our relationship.
I am looking for trustworthy stewards of the gifts, talents, and opportunities I have given to you which are as different from those I have given others as your fingerprints, DNA, voice, and the iris of your eyes are from those of any other person ever created or who will yet come into being before I come.
Just as aside, many of you do not even begin to realize how uniquely I have crafted you. The iris is the colored part of your eye. Muscles in your iris control your pupil — the small black opening that lets light into your eye. The color of your iris is like your fingerprint. It is unique to you, and nobody else in the world has the exact same colored eye. Think about that next time they try to make you swallow the devil’s bait of the theory of evolution that leaves Me out of My creation.
My Son told you to at all times girded in readiness to serve with your lamps lit, busy about My business when He returns and if He so finds you, He will seat you at the banquet and serve you. And he adds that you will not be ready if you have allowed your house to be broken into by the thief (the one who comes to steal, kill, and destroy). Luke 12:35-38. Do not let Me find you entertaining the devil when I come, Luke 12:39, do not be about his business, which is lies, anger, abuse of others, and all the deeds of the flesh. Galatians 5:19-21.
“You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” Luke 12:40.
And Peter had a question for Jesus after being told to be ready for the Master to return, which it is good for you to consider as unto yourself and your daily conversations and activities.
Peter said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or to everyone as well?” And the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master finds so doing when he comes. Truly I say to you that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. But if that servant says in his heart, ‘My master is a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the other servants, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk; the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know, and will cut him in pieces, and assign him a place with the unbelievers. And that servant who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will receive many lashes, but the one who did not know it, and committed deeds worthy of a flogging, will receive but few. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.” Luke 12:40-48.
More revelation, more responsibility, but this is not burdensome, it is My favor on you—it is a blessing beyond blessing to partner and go through life with Me. Live as Jesus did in your relationship with Me and I will bless you to be a blessing and you will go about in the power of My anointing, the same anointing by which I anointed Jesus your Messiah and High Priest, doing good and healing all oppressed of the devil for I am with you.
Do not be like the unfaithful steward who grew rich himself at his master’s expense. He used the position for his increase causing the master’s account to decrease. My servant Joseph was not like that whether a slave, a prisoner, or a prime minister he worked only to prosper the authority over him. He really did all his work unto Me, conscious that he was walking in My sight at all times, that is what gave him the strength to not succumb to being seduced by Potiphar’s wife. Genesis 39:9. He always saw Me as with him, and therefore he walked in light—in integrity.
Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. Ephesians 6:5-8.
It is to Me alone that the ultimate account is rendered. Do not charge unjust amounts. Do not lie about the hours you were at work or spent working on a certain client or matter to increase your own finances. I hate false measures and weights. Never set your scales or sights for cheating others to increase yourself. I am the LORD. I am just.
Jesus did not seek His own glory, only Mine, but consequently I have given Him glory beyond all and before all. He glorified Me and I have glorified Him. And I do the same with you. I honor those who honor Me. There is a difference between those who serve Me in all they do and those who do not.
Do not separate what you do at work as “secular” and think that somehow you are not My temple there as much as you are in Church singing praise songs. You are walking about with a treasure beyond measure in your earthen vessel. You are walking in greatness. Be mindful of who is in you and on you.
Always remember every moment is adding to or subtracting from your account.
You yourselves also know, Philippians, that at the first preaching of the gospel, after I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving but you alone; for even in Thessalonica you sent a gift more than once for my needs. Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account. Philippians 4:15-17.
II. No idle words. Matthew 12:36.
But I tell you that every idle word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified (declared righteous), and by your words you will be condemned.” Matthew 12:36-37.
Here you see you are giving an accounting to Me again, and it is again the same word used in rendering Me an account of your life. That is “logos.” Your words presented open and uncovered. What you have spoken in secret, will be proclaimed from the housetops.
What are idle words? Idle people are like idle words: UNFRUITFUL. Not for any purpose. No good for anything or anyone. Non-working words. Just cluttering the ground. But there is more than just unfruitful, these words can also be destructive. Words of malice, insult, rudeness, shaming others, ruining reputations, false witness—these are all idle, they are unfruitful but they also steal, kill, and destroy.
Let no rotten, unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:29-32.
Idle words are also words of sensuality and lust that release unclean spirits and influences that lead those speaking them or hearing them into perverted lifestyles, pornography, immoral relationships, idolatry, abortion, human trafficking, and murder. I warn you of these things very clearly in the Book of Proverbs. These words lead innocent young people into a lifestyle of immorality as it is even being taught in schools today. They are from hell.
But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. Ephesians 5:3-7.
The world, the flesh, and the devil will send various thoughts and influences into your mind that are contrary to My Word. You must resist these and not entertain them, for if you kep mn. But to know how to refute these thoughts and influences you must know My Word so My Holy Spirit can remind you of everything I said and lead you out of the darkness into My own marvelous light.
Watch your Words. Death and life are in the power of your tongue. This is the most important member for directing your life is your tongue which is fueled by your thoughts. Many people say that what you say does not matter. But they are wrong. It is a matter of life and death, blessing and cursing, stability and confusion.
III. Gratitude for all God has done and is doing for you, in you, and with you – It is good to give thanks to the LORD
It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; to declare Your lovingkindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night. Psalm 92:1-2.
What you are grateful for you will keep, and more besides, thanksgiving and praise causes acceleration growth, increase exponentially. Thanksgiving is the catalyst that releases faith for working out wonders. THE VOICE OF THANKSGIVING BRINGS WONDERS.
Of the ten lepers healed by Jesus, only once returned to give thanks and he was made whole, the disease was not just arrested but all it had taken from him was restored. He offered the VOICE OF THANKSGIVING, which is throwing yourself prostrate before Me in joy as you cast all your cares on Me and begin singing, shouting, and rejoicing in thanksgiving for the result promised in My Word, such as healing, provision, things working together for good, before it comes to pass, but knowing assuredly that it will. You see all the steps for this and the result in 2 Chronicles 20. You move the mountain in your way and then call in the result as you cast the care on Me with thanksgiving and exultant praises. And you will know peace beyond understanding and you will inherit the promise you seek.
What you are grateful for you honor, value, guard, and keep, and what you are grateful for you will love. What you are not grateful for you do not value it and treat it as cheap. You will lose it.
Esau cared little about his birthright, he sold it to Jacob for a bowl of beans. I tell you that I hated Esau and loved Jacob.
When you are grateful you are willing and obey. When you rebel and desist, you are not grateful for what you have been freely given. You lose what you are not grateful for.
“Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and a glad heart for the abundance of all things; therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the LORD will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in the lack of all things; and the enemy will put an iron yoke on your neck until he has destroyed you. Deuteronomy 28:47-48.
A grateful heart is a cheerful giver and a cheerful heart does good like a medicine. When you tithe and give offerings, I told the Israelites to rejoice and feast that day.
I love you. So that is the three you need to focus on to live a perfect life. Always remember, even in the heat of the moment, your audience of One to whom you must render an account to receive your full reward and the promotion to a higher realm, to permit no idle words out of your mouth (My Spirit will help you in this, especially by building yourself up by praying in tongues) for this is a matter of life and death, and by a lifestyle (constant heart flow) of gratitude which is the catalyst, that combined with faith, works wonders.
