Dear friends in Christ our Lord: I want to warn you about falling away, for the time of the falling away has already begun, and has begun long ago. Where the Saints of the Lord, even to the Elect, have become deceived by the great deception that has plagued the land.
We are called to hold fast to our faith steadfastly till the end as the Lord commands us, not letting our faith dwindle in this dark hour. Rather letting our light shine and keeping ourselves filled with the Holy Spirit enabling our light to not extinguish. As the day of the Lord draws ever nearer, let us be encouraged all the more to keep our faith on him, lest any snare should be our downfall.
Dear friends, our enemy satan is out prowling like a roaring lion looking to whom he may devour. As God warned long ago to Cain, that the devil was waiting for him to devour him. He disregarded the Lord's warning and did not master sin that was at his door.
So it is today, that many disregard our Lord warning to live a Holy life by faith. So many have fallen away to many false teachings and snares of the enemy bring upon them their own destruction. But you are not here to do that, rather we who are in the true faith of Christ, we crucify our desires and ways of the flesh that sin will not reign in our mortal body, but the power of the Holy Spirit that abides in all those who love and obey him. For he fills us with his Spirit, we who abide with him.
As The Lord said, "Abide in me, and I will abide with you, that you may bear good fruit."
Dear friends in faith, do not let sin be your downfall through your flesh. Evil desires begin by planting thoughts in the mind and these lead to sins of the body unto death. But we who crucify our desires and no longer let our flesh rule us, the Holy Spirit will rule our minds, and bring within us a harvest of perseverance, good works, faith, love, endurance which is all part of the Godly character of those who true faith.
But the fruits of false believers are evident in their lawless living and their worldly lifestyle is testament to their fall from grace. We who keep our firm footing in the faith in the gospel of Christ we first held to, depart not back to the world and the lusts of the flesh, rather we continue on the path of light we were called to by the Father.
All of us who came to the gospel of our Lord were drawn by the Father and he will see to it, that we endure and become perfected in our faith, if our hearts remain obedient to him.
If you let your hearts be burdened down by sinful living, and living for the pleasures of this fallen society, your light will certainly be extinguished. Rather keep the flame alive in you, ever looking forward to that day when we may rise incorruptible, and put on the clothes of the righteous, crowned with the crown of life.
Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith, so let us remain abiding in him standing firm to the very end. For all who stand firm in the faith will be saved. Amen......
