Exhortations

Guidance Through Vision

Vision is part of our gift of imagination; using it righteously will never put us to shame and undeniably supports our spiritual conclusion. Prophecy is the word of things to come given to the prophets of God coming directly from God or through His messengers (the angels) before and during Jesus’ life here on earth. Jesus is said to be the last Prophet of God. Though we know him as the Son of God, we also know him as a savior. We have to be aware, as Jude, the brother of James, the brother of Christ, said in his epistle with a full warning about the judgment of all ungodly deeds. Many people will use the name of Jesus according to their advancement and desire for their wicked lusts.

Jude 1:14-16 “Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” 16 These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their lusts, and mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain the advantage.”

As we learned from our Christian walk, his apostles continued his teachings when Jesus Christ ascended to heaven. They reminded us there would be mockers on the last day, going against those who disagree with them and persons prophesying with false results, causing believers to walk away from the faith. These people cause divisions among the faithful because they speak with their mouths and do not have the Spirit.

You know who they are; no one can blame you for distancing yourself. Start building your own and find the holiest faith within you. We are the church, and the kingdoms are in us, upon us, and within us. We need to acknowledge it and feel the independence of having a closer relationship with Him, who created us. Jesus is the bridge to reconciliation with the Father and is our brother. According to his word, our cooperation in obeying the will of the Father (Mark 3:35) is the key to establishing that relationship. 

John 14:20-21 GNB—”When that day comes, you will know that I am in my Father and that you are in me, just as I am in you. “Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. My Father will love those who love me; I will also love them and reveal myself to them.” So we are part of the Trinity as I interpreted the vision.

To God our Savior, Who gives wisdom to the wise, Him alone is wise, God of glory and majesty, power and never-ending authority, we acknowledge you both now and forever. Amen
