The heart of the Father – Charity
For without charity we are nothing!
If a man thinketh himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceiveth his own self! Jesus said if thou wilt be perfect sell all you have and give to the poor and then you will have treasure in heaven.
We do not need another speaker who can speak with eloquent words of man’s wisdom, having not works that follow him, in whom have become nothing more than a sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal, full of the wisdom, and pride of man, which is devilish and nothing more than foolishness unto God!
What we need, are real, mature, sons and daughters of the most high God, who have been through the waters for cleansing, and the fires for purification, and who have come out, not with the heart of a fool (thou fool this night thy soul shall be required of thee) which is fool’s gold of a religious fig leaf cover up, but, what we rather need is mature right hand sons and daughters of the most high God who have come out with the true heart of the Father, recreated, and transformed into his very image and likeness of pure gold, who can not only discern the needs of the people, but actually have the heart of the father to meet those needs. A submissive and humble heart to do His will in these last days that the Father may be glorified!
For the Bible declares that there are three that remain; faith, hope, and charity and that the greatest of these is charity (love). The Bible further declares that without charity we are nothing! The Bible declares that is a man/ women is not born again by his Spirit he cannot see the Kingdom of God, nor enter into it, for if you are not truly born again by his Spirit (love) then you are none of His!
The Bible declares in 1 John 3:17 … “but whosoever has the world’s goods and sees his brother or sister in need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from them, how dwelleth the love of God in them?” The answer to that question is quite simple, you do not have his Spirit abiding in you, and you are not abiding in him. For how can you say that you love God whom you have not seen and not love your brother sand sisters whom you have seen
The Bible says you cannot love God and not love your brothers or sisters and if you say you do the bible calls you a liar! The Bible says you cannot say that you love God and not do his commandments which is to love the Lord God with all of your heart, soul, strength, and, mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself. Upon these two commandments hang the whole law and the prophets!
What people really need is this hour is to grow up in God and reach a maturity or truly repent and all together get born again by his true Spirit, baptized in the water of his word, and the fire of his Spirit, that ye may be in the expressed image of the Father God, then and only then can we be true son’s and daughter’s of the most high God! Then can we really be partakers of his divine nature having escaped the pollutants of this world that is through lust!
The true definition of charity is agape which is God’s love, it is the very essence of who he is, his being…. and it is in Him that we are to live, move, and have our being, if we are in fact truly abiding within Him and He within us. There is a big difference in quoting scriptures about Him, and abiding within him and allowing him to abide and operate through you.
The Psalmist David, understood this principal when he declared in Psalms 41:1-3
“1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor; for the Lord will deliver him in a time of trouble. 2 The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon this earth: and thou will not deliver him into the hand of his enemies. 3 The Lord will strengthen him upon his sick bed of languishing and make all his bed in sickness.”
David went on to say in verse 11-12,
“This I know that thou favorest me, because, mine enemies doth not triumph over me! As for me, thou upholdest me in mine integrity, and seatest me before thine face forever.”
King David was a man after God’s own heart; he was a sheep feeder and protector. David was a right hand man of God, who sat with him in heavenly places that is why he said thou settest me before thy face forever. Sit thou on my right hand until I make thine enemies thine footstool, David had many enemies, yet David was the one in whom God has chose to be king even though many thought his brothers may have been the better choice, for God judgeth the hearts….
“He who has pity upon the poor leandeth unto the Lord, and that which he hath given shall the Lord repay him again,” Proverbs 19:17.
“If thou be among you a poor man/women, of one of thy brethren within any of thine gates in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart nor shut thy hand from thy poor brother. But thou shalt open thine hand to him and thou shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need in that which he wanteth. Beware that there be not a spot in thy wicked heart (for he is coming back for a bride without spot or blemish) saying, the seventh year, the year of release, is at hand, and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother/sister, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the Lord against thee, and it be sin unto thee. (For if you know to do better and you do it not it is sin unto thee). Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved, when thou givest unto him (for God loveth a cheerful giver) and because that for this thing the Lord they God shall bless thee in thy WORKS, and into all that thou puttest thine hand unto. For the poor shall never cease out of the land, therefore I COMMAND (not ask) thee saying, thou shalt open thy hand WIDE unto thy brother/sister, to the poor, and to the needy, in thy land,” Deuteronomy 15:7-11.
“What does it profit my brethren, though a man say he has faith, and have not WORKS? CHARITY…can faith alone save him? If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, depart in peace, be ye warmed, and be ye filled, notwithstanding you give them not those things which are needed for the body; what doth it profit? In other words what have you really done? The answer is nothing! Even so faith if it hath not WORKS?CHARITY is dead, being alone. For faith works by love or else it does not work at all. You can give without loving but, you cannot love without giving!” James 2:14.
“I have showed ye in all things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak (widows in their affliction, orphans/any in need) and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, it is more blessed to give than to receive,” Acts 20:35.
“Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaking together, and running over shall men give unto your bosom, for with the same measure that ye mete, it shall be measured to you again,” Luke 6:38.
“Every man according as he hath purposed in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity (because the law says to) for God loveth a cheerful giver from the heart!” Corinthians 9:7.
“But to do good and communicate forget not, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased,” Hebrews 13:16.
You see, David was being prepared to be a king, who would later run his fathers business of governing and really caring for and protecting God’s people/sheep. Jesus himself tells us in Matthew 25 parable, that He himself separate’s the true sheep from the stubborn goats. Sheep, He places on his right hand, and the goats He places on his left hand. The right hand is the highest ranking position in the Kingdom of God other than God’s seat himself, and we know that Jesus himself sits at the right hand of the Father, but, who are these that sit at the right hand of Jesus ruling and reigning with Him? If your answer was the true sons and daughters/ true sheep that are obedient and doing the will of the Father, then you are correct!
Now allow me to clarify what true seep do according to the words of Jesus himself in this Matthew 25 parable. True sheep feed those that are hungry, they cloth those that are naked, they visit those that are sick and afflicted, and those that are imprisoned, and what they are doing to the least of these the brethren they are likewise doing this unto the Jesus himself, as Jesus himself stated! Jesus himself also tells us in this parable the final destination of these sheep who do these kinds of ministering to others as ministering to him, is that they will enter into eternal life.
Goats on the other hand, the left hand, they refuse to do the will of the Father, they do none of these things, and therefore they serve nor minister to no one other than their own bellies, nor or they really true servants of the most high God. For what they do not do to the least of these the brethren they are likewise NOT doing it to the Lord Jesus Christ himself! The Lord himself tells us also of the final destination of these stubborn goats who he is referring to as a people refuses to hear His voice and obey Him. He says they shall enter into eternal damnation!
Isaiah 56:10-11 better defines some of these people:
“His watchmen are blind; they are all ignorant; they are dumb dogs, they cannot bark, sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber, They are all greedy dogs, who can never have enough and they are shepherds that cannot understand (discern). They all Look to their own way, everyone for his own gain from his own quarter.”
“For I mean not that other men be eased and that ye be burdened. But by equality, Now that at this time your abundance may be a supply, for their want; that they may be equality,” 11 Corinthians 8-13-14.
In the early church the people were told to sell all they had and lay this at the apostle’s feet, who would distribute it evenly among the people, that all people had all things in common. A certain couple decided to keep back for themselves a part of the price of the selling of the land/property. These fell dead at the Apostle’s feet because they had not lied to man, but, rather lied to the Holy Ghost, and agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the living God!
It is time to do a heart check each and everyone of us and examine our own selves/ hearts to see if we are truly in the faith of Jesus, and if our works do follow us.
I am not referring to religious, self righteous works of carnal doctrines, and commandments of men, as works, but, rather works of righteousness of Christ Jesus that is revealed to us in the scriptures as we read and learn them by faith to walk in them, works of charity/ love that men may see our good works and glorify the Father within us.
This is in fact doing the true work of the Kingdom from the heart of the Father. It is vitally important that we do this examination for without real faith with works of charity/ love, we cannot please God nor will we enter into his kingdom.
Many out of their own ignorance have taught these scriptures incorrectly and have caused many to go astray from the original writing and intent of the words of Jesus, and in times past God winked at men’s ignorance, but now, commandeth all men everywhere to repent! (Acts 17:30).
