“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud,” Proverbs 16:18-19.
“Pride is damnation to the soul, damnable to hell. Pride forces people to reject Me without them knowing.
People in pride stand for Me yet they falter not knowing truth. Prideful people forget the Gospel and error in every way.
Pride is not a small thing it is opposition to My Will.
Pride kills, My Daughter. Ignorant men of long ago had no desire to please God, and added their own will to the Law of God.
In their own foolish pride, their hearts were darkened and they sinned against The Father.
Daughter, I say unto you that pride shall cause many to fall. Let a man examine himself to see where he is lacking.
Step away from pride it is a sure fiery pit.
Might I go deeper for some still will not receive truth? When a man lies to gain profit using My Word, he is operating in pride.
When a man willingly misconstrues My Word for the purpose of manipulation and control, Children, this is the spirit of pride.
When a man knowingly leads a young Christian into harm’s way, this is pride.
When a person thinks My Word does not apply to them, this is pride.
When a person uses The Gospel for shaming, this is pride.
When a man will not receive Truth, this is pride and damnable.
Self-appointed persons operate in pride.
My Children, ministering The Gospel is not a vocation that one selects from a school curriculum. Preaching and teaching The Word of God is an honor and privilege. It is sacred.
There is no style to preaching — just tell the truth as it is written.
Just because you are good at speaking, preaching and teaching, do not let The Word of God be about you, this is surely prideful.
For it is My Kingdom come, and My Will be done in Earth, as it is in Heaven.”
“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God,” Luke 4:4.
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us,” 1 John 2:15-19.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen,” Romans 1:18-25.
The Blessing of the Lord Be upon You,
