I’ve Not Seen The Righteous Forsaken

righteous not forsaken

Psalm 37:25 King James Version (KJV) “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” I have met people that call themselves Christians who practice begging for things even though they really have plenty. … It is a trick from satan for people to pretend they do not have food or the things they need. Some people will go to great lengths to get other people to buy things for them so they can spend the money they do have on things they do not need.

What Can You Take To Heaven?

 

Revelation 21

King James Version (KJV)21 “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.

10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

11 Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19 And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.

21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.

22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.”

"Every trophy you have here means nothing when you get there." When you get to the Holy City mentioned in Revelation 21 the trophies you gained on earth will have no value.

“Every trophy you have here means nothing when you get there.”¬† Those are words Elizabeth Evans Wolfe shared with her youngest daughter. ¬† Beth Wolfe told her mother that is another set of words that should be put on a shirt.¬† It’s true, you know? ¬† When you get to the Holy City mentioned in Revelation 21 the trophies you gained on earth will have no value.

 

Questions For The Believers

Do you understand where you have strayed?
 
Can you perceive it?
 
I believe the Lord wants His people to assimilate these truths absorbing the reality of the need for those who call Him Lord to change.
 
Many ask how they could change or why they have a need to change. Isn’t it everyone else that walks in error?
 
Aren’t the nonbelievers the ones we should be most concerned about?
 
I believe the answer to that question lies within each believer.
 
There is room for improvement in your life.
 
If you have not crucified the flesh then you are in need or reconstruction.
 
If you still have moments of thinking it’s okay to practice doing things that are clearly against God then you are walking in error.
 
It is known that you call HIM LORD OF ALL but have you made HIM LORD OF YOUR LIFE?
 
Did you shirk your responsibility? Did you do all that God has called you to do? Did you make anything more important to you than God?
 
Have you been walking in faith?
Remember without faith it is impossible to please God.
 
Have you been drinking from your own cistern? Have you neglected the wife of your youth?
 
Did you forsake your children? Are you teaching your children about God? Have you made amends to those you have harmed?
 
Do you walk in truth? Have you been walking on the straight and narrow path leading a blameless life? Do you practice using tricks of the trade in your business practices?
 
Do you realize that trickery and deceit is not from God?
 
You will be held accountable for every idle word spoken.¬† God’s Word clearly shows that he does not want His people to walk in sin.¬† God does not want a Godly man to walk on the fenceline condoning the sins of his fellow man.¬†
 
Have you spoken lies against a fellow worker, a neighbor, or anyone else?
 
Do you have an unconfessed sin that needs to be exposed? Will you finally repent and change?
 
Many are called but few are chosen. Are you sincerely doing all God has called you to do?
 
Did you let the cares of this world become more important than taking time to draw close to God?
 
Have you allowed your tools to be stolen? Did you let the enemy steal things that God wants you to use?
 
Did you let other people take care of the tasks that God intended you to accomplish?
 
Are you quick to get angry when another man sins while you neglect to see the things that you do that are wrong?
 
It would be good for you to stop everything that you are doing that you want to do so you can readily find what God wants you to do.
 
Repent and change now for the time is short.
 
~ Words of encouragement for the body of Christ written by Elizabeth Evans Wolfe on July 20, 2013 ~
Please also read Galatians Chapter 5 especially verses 13-26, “13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.”
