WITHOUT TESTING, WHO CAN BE PROVEN?
YaHuWaH is using hasatan right now to set up the world for one final fall, and we who will make it through to the end will truly be delivered. Why? Because we have received a love for the truth.
The act of being born from above (wholeness, deliverance) of our entire being is not completed at the beginning of our walk, but at the end of it. It is the stump that will remain to the end. Through all the fiery trials, deceptions and hate, though cut down, the stump will not be cut off. Without testing, who can be proven? If His purging fire does not come, who shall be refined? Fake deliverance only leads to apostasy. We are to examine ourselves. Is our deliverance fake or real? When the testing comes, we will know.
The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of hasatan, with all power and signs and wonders of falsehood, and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, in order for them to be rescued. And for this reason Elohim sends them a working of delusion, for them to believe the falsehood, in order that all should be judged who did not believe the truth, but have delighted in the unrighteousness. But we ought to give thanks to Elohim always for you, brothers, beloved by the Master, because Elohim from the beginning chose you to be rescued – in set-apartness of Spirit, and belief in the truth unto which He called you by our Good News, for the obtaining of the esteem of our Master יהושע Messiah. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-14
This is why it is beyond importance to embrace adversity, trials, sufferings, persecution and pain. How else will we know if our deliverance was something we acquired just to ‘get out of jail for free’ or if we received it because we truly wanted to switch Masters. Our deliverance must be tested for authenticity…and it will be whether we want it to be or not. It will all come down to this; what we truly believe will be made known through the coming shaking.
Truth is solid and will not be shaken. False belief systems, driven by hidden motives of selfishness, will be shaken, exposed and destroyed.
Without judgment there can be no deliverance. Messiah judged sin, and finding it wanting in the balances, He condemned it in His flesh. Messiah came to divide those who love the truth from those who do not. If Pharaoh’s heart wasn’t hardened, where would we be? If Sodom wasn’t destroyed, where’s our example of those who choose to live in wickedness? If Judas did not betray, where would we be? Evil may have entered the world to destroy man, yet evil will not have the last word. What was meant for evil, YaHuWaH will use (and is using) it for good; fulfilling His prefect plan and purposes.
