GET OVER IT!
"And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Matthew 3:17
Did you hear what the Father spoke from Heaven 4 times in the New Testament (NT)? The Father is "pleased" in His "beloved Son."
We can only be pleasing to the Father when we are in the Son. God is NOT impressed with any denomination or local church assembly. Let's Get over it! by changin
g our hearts and focus.
Jesus Christ is the LIFE:
"In him was life; and the life was the light of men." John 1:4
"He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." 1 John 5:12
All hero worship should be immediately repented of. The unchanging focal point of genuine Christianity is CHRIST, not pastor wonderful nor the some best-selling Christian author or speaker. Who are they but mere men, sinners saved the blood of God!?
"Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man AT HIS BEST STATE is altogether vanity. Selah (Selah means 'meditate upon this')." Psalms 39:5
In His very closing words of the monumental writing of First John, the Holy Spirit warned us; "Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen." (1 Jn. 5:21)
By the way, the Almighty gave us His Word which has always been, is still, and will always be, the true best-selling Author, and the only divine Author. He gave us His words. Concerning His Authorship, the LORD states;
"Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?" Proverbs 22:20-21
We cannot recognize true spiritual growth until the time at which we begin to be impressed with the LORD Himself and His words, and our enamor with mere men/ministries begins to subside. Is He not calling us to Get Over mere men and their works and be caught up in the Master alone.
"...to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word." Isaiah 66:2
Do I tremble at His Word or men's?
"That no flesh should glory in his presence...That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." 1 Corinthins 1:29,31
Who does my heart glory in?
Command: "let no man glory in men"
BLESSED PRAYER OF REPENTANCE: Dear LORD, I turn from and repent of all worship of men and their works. You alone made me and saved me. Please forgive me of this idolatry, spiritual whoredom and adultery, which against Your clearly revealed will, has displaced my heart affections from You. I now, this very moment, choose to get over men - I cease to be enamored with mere men and their works which are far inferior to Yours my LORD. You alone are perfect in all Your infinite magnificence and splendor. I love You Jesus. Help me to cease from alienating my affections and pure focus away from You. Heal my heart of all idolatries. You alone are worthy of all of my worship and praise. You are my Life. I love You my LORD Jesus. At his moment, I lay my life in Thine hands. LORD, You must increase and I must decrease."
God Is Love,
