"PRAY FOR THE UNBELIEVING! THE UNBELIEVING AND THE BELIEVERS WHO ARE UNBELIEVING!"
"THE BELIEVERS WHO ARE UNBELIEVING" are the Pharisees and the Sadducees; the hypocrites. Yet, not only the hypocrites, but also those who NEVER COME TO THE TRUE KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST. They're unable to because they are ever-learning, yet their spiritual mind has been shut up.
There are a ton of hypocrites in The Church [the Body of Christ; THE PEOPLE]. Honoring God with their lips/mouth, yet not showing it through faith/action. I, being me, would think this was simply milk, but truly it is meat. Meat for all.
I know my Abba Father and the Spirit of His children.
Spirit recognizes Spirit.
I'm protective of My God.
Yes, you may be able to fool those people with itching ears, who seek to feed their carnal mind, but the Spirit of God knows who are His.
The lesson I was instructed to share. And yes it's in order [that which it was given to me]--
Pharisees and Defilement
6He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites [pretenders], as it is written, THIS PEOPLE HONOURETH ME WITH THEIR LIPS, BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME.
20And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
21For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.Rights As a Minister
I Corinthians 9:11-14,
11If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?
12If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ.
13Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?
14Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.Freedom from Enticing Words
6As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:
Israel Rejects Christ
Romans 10:2, 3,
2For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
3For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.Judgment of Judah
15And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
16Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
