Deliverance Follows Obedience

Deliverance Follows Obedience
Prepare your heart to seek God for obedience that you may observe and do all that Christ has commanded through His holy apostles.
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent." (Zephaniah 3:9)

Saved by the Simplicity of God's Voice

I never cease to stand in awe at the simplicity of Christ in truth. Before learning of these 12 foundation stones of the altar of Christ for covenant faith in Him, I remember coming to realize that the gospel I had been taught to share by my fellow church goers was not what I had originally experienced when God awakened me to my need for Christ.

The commonly shared gospel that we were presenting had been 'simplified' to the 'bare essentials' so as to 'keep the main thing the main thing'... it was a gospel commonly found on evangelical tracks. The problem was that it actually produced confusion through the carrot and horse scenario. The promise was always placed in front of but just outside the of the horse in an attempt to keep it moving along.

I came to realize that they didn't know the God I experienced alone in my bedroom before reading a bible and before sitting in their pews... and I wasn't in touch with Him any longer either. I had been awakened by God to the fact that I was lost but I had not yet been saved until I was instructed in the new covenant doctrine of Christ by a living apostle. Praise God for restoring again sight to the blind and setting the captives free to serve Him in grace and truth!!
