Jewels from Judy: The State of My church
Judy A Bauman
“My church has long been in a lukewarm state. People claim My name, but do not adhere to My standards. My will, My ways, My precepts, My commands are the way to life. The fear of the Lord involves not just reverence for Me but to love what I love and hate what I hate.” [Proverbs 8:13]
~Joy - Not happiness, but joy even when all hell is coming against you.
~Peace - The peace that surpasses understanding which guards your heart and mind in Christ Jesus
~Patience – The anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. See the progression of patience in Romans 5:3-5.
~Kindness - It is the kindness of God that leads one to repentance.
~Goodness - You are to proclaim the goodness, the excellencies of Him who has called you out of the darkness and into His marvelous light.
~Faithfulness - Be dependable and loyal to me even if it cost you your life. Be willing to give it all to me and to my purpose. Unbelief will not nullify My faithfulness, but the one who continues in unfaithfulness will be cut off from My goodness and mercy.
~Gentleness - My spirit is gentle and kind. My people are not to Stir up hatred, but to call the sinner to repentance. It is not a weak position but power under control. Again, the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God in Christ. Remember, we are talking about the weapons of warfare.
Where there is no fuel the fire goes out. A gentle word spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.
~Self-control - Must be cultivated in each soul. Actions follow one’s thoughts, so the warfare which must be won is the war being waged in your mind. Think about what you're thinking about. Do you have the mind of Christ? If not, study the Gospels and learn what Jesus said and did. Do not shy away when it's time to be bold and do not rush out when I am leading you to rest or stay away from an area. Remember Jesus not only hid Himself at times, but My apostles weren't permitted in certain areas by My spirit.
