|Ezekiel 33:7-11 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?|
1 Thessalonians 5:12-15 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work's sake. And be at peace among yourselves. Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
>The Holy comforter reproves of sin and of righteousness and of judgement, all three. God is not lopsided. Thank God for the Holy Spirit that we are not left to our own devices to pick and choose his reproof. God is God. We turn to Him in Love and let him be God.
>Nevertheless, whomsoever the Lord loves he chastens that they should not be condemned with the world.
>Oh Lord, Thank you for your mercy. Look not upon our sins, transgressions, nor our iniquities but upon the blood of Jesus Christ. Blessed be your name. Thank you for your word. Bring to our remembrance your word in due season. Fill us with the Holy Spirit and open the mouths of your children whom you have sent, and speak your bidding, Lord, for your name's sake. May your word go to where you send it and accomplish your purpose. Thank you for Jesus that we have life more abundantly in our daily lives. Father bless this weekend... Wherever the brethren go may the Holy Spirit prevail. Help us to make right choices in love. To you be all glory, in Jesus' name. Amen.
