Ever wish you missed by taking a shortcut? Has happened to me several times. I remember one time in particular, when we went to Pachuca Hidalgo. We knew roughly what direction we needed to go, so we chose a street lead we looked through the Federal District. We soon discovered that this road had many curves and suddenly changed direction, until finally, without warning, the road ended at a crossroads and had to take a long detour of hours. To make a long story short, after a long time of rodeos, I was back in the place where we started. Wanting cut way, we lost time.
At that time, our problem was not very serious. However, in the spiritual life, when someone leaves the road runs serious risks and the people of Jehovah God takes different shortcuts that are called: Jehovah's Witnesses, Pentecostals, Baptists, Sabbatarian, Mormons, etc., Etc., And Israel also took a shortcut. And today we read about this decision and about their results.(1 Samuel 4:1-3) "1 And Samuel came to all Israel. At that time Israel went out to battle against the Philistines, and encamped beside Ebenezer: and the Philistines pitched in Aphek. 2 And the Philistines put the battle against Israel: and when they joined battle, Israel was smitten before the Philistines: and they slew of the army in the field about four thousand men. 3 When the people returned to the camp, the elders of Israel said, Why Lord has hurt us today before the Philistines? Let us fetch the ark of the covenant Silo of the Lord, to come among us and save us from the hand of our enemies. "
We are at the end of the era of the judges in Israel. For many years, the Israelites had victoriously entered the land under Joshua's command. However, in subsequent years, the spiritual life of the people had gone from bad to worse as we are experiencing today where the Philistines still dominate with their gods and their god Dagon mainly now found in the necks, ears , Bibles, in their cars, in their homes, and right now in almost all Christian congregations, because they are so convinced that they love the little fish is a Christian emblem symbolizing the fishers of men wrap this lie with fables and fantasy stories There is no doubt that the people of the Lord God is dying for lack of knowledge, here in Toluca there are several gods and nothing else I will mention only one, Dr., in theology Armando Alducin having thousands of unsuspecting blinded him buy everything they sell including the famous goldfish.
On one occasion after another, have turned to other gods. When this happens, the Lord punished them and now these congregations is not the Son or the Father and the evidence is that God has allowed to fall into the hands of his enemies. (2Jn 1:8-11) "8 Watch yourselves, so you do not lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward. 9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: Welcome! 11 For he says: Welcome! partaker of his evil deeds. "(2 Timothy 3:14-17) "14 But continue thou in the things you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it 15 and how from childhood you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. " It is very important to understand that during this period in the history of Israel, defeat in battle was always a sign that the people had sinned and was under the punishment of the Lord God. At that time, the people of God was a political nation, and the Lord God had promised to protect them from their enemies as long as they walk in obedience, faithful to their commitment to God.
Therefore, when God removed his hand and removes protection, was and is a sure sign that something was wrong, spiritually speaking. It was and remains far because God does not change, as a red light on the dashboard of the car, indicating that something is wrong with the engine and you have to take care of already. It's like a high fever that indicates the presence of a disease in the body. I truly hope you're getting this powerful word from the Lord God and that the Holy Spirit is convicting you your soul and your heart and your heart's veil is removed for clarity be your understanding of the truth.(2 Corinthians 3:14) "But their minds were made dull, for to this day, when they read the old covenant the same veil remains were not discovered, which is removed by Christ."
Against this, the people sought solution. They decided to take the ark of the battlefield. They thought so, the Lord would be with them to give them the victory. What was the ark of the covenant? It was a sacred furniture, a chest that served as the throne of God. The Ark of the Covenant was kept in the tabernacle, the portable temple where Israel worshiped God. However, the people decided to get him out of this place in their desire to find a solution to your problem. It was a wrong solution, because they were using the ark of the Lord of the manner in which the pagan nations used the idols of their gods. For pagans, it was common to carry the image of a god on the battlefield to bring luck.
Now read the reaction of the people when they had reached the ark (1 Samuel 4:4-9) "4 So the people sent to Shiloh and brought from there the ark of the covenant of the LORD of hosts, who dwelt among cherubims: and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God. 5 to pass, when the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel shouted with a great shout that the ground shook. 6 When the Philistines heard the noise of the shout, they said: What voice of this great shout in the camp of the Hebrews? And they understood that the ark of the LORD had come into the camp. 7 And the Philistines were afraid, for they said, God is come into camp. And they said unto us! now because before it was not. 8 Woe to us! Who will deliver us from the hand of these mighty gods? These are the gods who struck the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness. 9 Be strong, O Philistines, and be men, lest you become slaves to the Hebrews, as they have been slaves to you, be men, and fight. "Sent for the ark of the covenant of their place in the tabernacle at Shiloh, and the two sons of Eli, the high priest, was delivered. They were to be the protectors of the ark, but rather, were complicit in their misuse. When the ark came to the Israelite camp, everyone started to scream! So often are filled with joy when their idealized shepherd the church manipulates cult emotions giving misuse the word of God Almighty Jehovah God did not send His Word to thrill if not to transform lives in a doctrine of repentance example: all those who claim to bring a fish fishers of men and even have even one discipleship (Mark 7:6) "He answered and said unto them hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, as it is written: 'This people honors me with their lips , but their heart is far from me. "
If the purpose of sending the leaders in bringing the ark had been encouraging Israeli troops and lift their spirits, gave good result! Everyone was so excited that even the earth itself trembled. They were sure that they would now have to win because God was with them. Was not there the ark of the covenant? God would not allow his throne, the ark of the covenant, was captured by his enemies! Surely they would win!
And Jehovah God's people at this time 2013 Christianity still thinking the same think to go alone to the parecencia congregation of Jehovah God is there only because they sing praises and read part of the Word all distorted and do not realize that hollow shell philosophies have subtle messages and emotions that lead to no change in people alone is a theater with the main clown is calling itself the pastor. I want to assure that no university has the ministry that Christ only has to establish ministries of apostle, teacher, prophet, evangelist or pastor, known only as does Jesus Christ is his ministry that the Lord God gave His Son and Himself says in the inspired Word of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 7:16) "By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? ".
Now I want to ask, if your pastor and leaders have this evidence of the fruit in their calls and their lives (Galatians 5:22-23) "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness , 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. "
1. Are ministers full of love? Or even once you have visited or inquired about your welfare in order to supply at least spiritually.2. Are ministers filled with joy? Because their faith is always accompanied by works in which you and your family enjoy the many blessings that God gives and share with you.3. Are ministers filled with peace? They go from house to house sharing of that peace that passes all understanding to guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.4. Are ministers full of patience? That when you need some ministry or someone to listen to your pastor is there at your side giving you words of encouragement.5. Are ministers full of kindness? They are always looking for the benefit of the community in need.6. Are ministers full of goodness? When one or more members of the congregation are in need approaches them and is with them in their needs as it is written taking faith with works.7. Are ministers with faith? What well know from the Word that guides his responsibility to always parallel the faith and works as it says in the Gospel of Christ and sound doctrine: James 2:20 "But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? "James 2:26" For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead. "8. Are ministers full of meekness? So much so that when something is not clear who is teaching does not agree to the Word, you can approach with confidence and urge in the love of Christ and he or she will receive from God and meekly plus you get the Thanks for doing it.9. Are ministers full of temperance? That when members disagree about decisions, in the character of Christ conformed to the well controlled temperament sits and talks to show their disagreement and thus agree to be in harmony and peace as Jesus Christ commanded in his Word.
The Philistines also had strong emotions, but in his case, were very different from those of the Israelite people. Instead of excited, felt great fear. They had heard of the miracles that the Lord God Jehovah had done to lead his people out of slavery in Egypt centuries before, but with his pagan mentality, thought they would have to involve various gods. His fear became determined not easily fall to the weapons of the Israelites. They decided to fight with all their might. But the Israelites were still confident. Surely the Lord would give his people into the hand of the Philistines, right? Surely the presence of the ark would ensure victory! Now read 1 Samuel 4:10 and 11 to see what happens: "10 fought, then, the Philistines, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter, for there fell of Israel thirty thousand men ordinary. 11 And the ark of God was taken, and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas. "
The ending was totally unexpected! The Israelites lost the battle, and many died. The two sons of Eli, in charge of the ark, were also killed. On top of the ark of the covenant, the holiest of all articles of the tabernacle, was captured by the Philistines! How is it possible? For the Philistines, was clear evidence that their gods were more powerful than the God of Israel. How else could explain how the defeat of the Israelites when the ark was in their camp? How else could explain how the capture of the ark itself? The Philistines took the ark to their land, campers and triumphant. Were the Philistines? Israel Lost the battle because his God was weaker than the gods Philistines? The appearance of economic prosperity and full congregations, and apparently that pastors who preach such lies are what they are right but I can assure you that everything that is not supported biblically that God has not and never has had most reason, remember that before most people thought the earth was square, So what could be the explanation for Israel's defeat and the loss of the ark?We have to understand that all Israeli actions were wrong. By understanding their mistake, we learn something important about God too. The solution sought Israel versus the initial defeat was the wrong solution. Sorry should kneel before God and seek his direction. How many times you were wrong and again wrong because you get to keep the bad advice or your own concepts instead of kneeling before God in repentance and seek his direction of the Holy Spirit.
In the days of Joshua, is what they did. When God allowed his defeat in the village of Ai, Joshua fell prostrate before the Lord. Then it was discovered and removed the sin that had among the people, and God restored. (Joshua 7:7-13) "7 And Joshua said, Alas, Lord GOD! Why did you cross the Jordan to this people, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? Wish we decided to live on the other side of the Jordan! 8 O Lord! What shall I say since Israel has turned their backs before their enemies? 9 The Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land will hear, will surround us and cut off our name from the earth. So what will you do for your great name? 10 Yahweh said to Joshua, Arise. Why liest thou thus upon thy face? 11 Israel has sinned. They have transgressed my covenant which I commanded them. Have taken of the accursed thing, have stolen, lied and have hidden among their own stuff. 12 Therefore the children of Israel could not prevail against his enemies. Rather, turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become anathema. I will not be more with you, unless you destroy the accursed from among you. 13 Arise, purify the people and say: "Purify for tomorrow, for the Lord God of Israel, 'Anathema are among you, O Israel. Ye can not stand before your enemies until ye take away the accursed thing from among you . "Now, however, instead of repenting of their lives and take what the Lord did not like, tried to manipulate it using the ark. They took lightly the things of the Lord. They began to think like the people around them. They forgot the holiness of the Lord, and the Lord God thought it could be handled, at this time exactly how many people think they handle the Lord with fasting days and long hours of prayers that repeat and repeat the same ignorance of the Doctrine of Christ will always lead to big mistakes by not searching the scriptures, (Isa 5:13) "Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst."
Besides having the wrong solution, enthusiasm was also wrong. When the ark came to their camp, were excited because they thought they had secured victory. They were very wrong! However, we too can have a mistaken enthusiasm, when we have wrong ideas about God and be faithful and fidelity is not measured in how many years as buried your talent because the Lord God faithfully measured in how many times you've played as says in his Word (Matthew 25:23-30) "23 His master replied, 'Well, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful with a few things. enter into the joy of your master.' 24 But when he showed that he had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I know that you are a hard man, reaping where you have not sown and gathering where you scattered. 25 And I was afraid, I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours. 26 His lord answered and said wicked, lazy servant! Did you know that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not winnowed? 27 Therefore you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received what was my own with interest. 28 Therefore take the talent from him and give him which hath ten talents. 29 For everyone who has will be given, and he shall have abundance: but whosoever hath not, even what he has will be taken away. 30 Al unprofitable servant cast him into the outer darkness. " There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. "
As a result of his solution wrong wrong and enthusiasm, were found in an unexpected and disastrous. They sought a shortcut to get the blessing of God, but were in a mess. How can we apply this event to our own lives? We must understand that there is no shortcut to receive God's blessing. God is holy, and we can not control him either. There are still many people who think the blessing of God without repentance, using objects or items to handle.They think that the mere presence of a Bible in your home will protect, rather than read and obey. They believe that a candle will protect them from evil, instead of raising their heartfelt prayers to the Lord. They think that a picture on the wall will bring blessing, instead of worshiping God in spirit and in truth. Although we avoid these obvious mistakes, I fear that we have become people who take lightly the things of God. We seek ways to handle it, to get his blessing, to find a shortcut to avoid the humiliation of repentance and obedience to the Lord.
There is no shortcut to God there is only Jesus Christ as the only way left to us his only Doctrine of Christ to transform our lives. God has shown us how to approach Him with a repentant heart and humbled, purified by the blood of Jesus Christ through faith. There is no substitute! Our heart is always looking for a shortcut to avoid the humiliation of having to acknowledge our sin before God and trust in Him But only one who thinks so, but get excited, only disappointment and defeat. God is holy. He can not be manipulated. Rather, He delights to bless a people humbled, repentant, a people who trust him and love him sincerely. Are we willing to be that people today? Or look for a shortcut?
