Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred...

Jun 30, 2013
We must depart from the unbelieving churches who will hear and but not receive the love of the Truth. They will not obey. We have no continuing city among them but are to seek one to come. Let us go forth unto Him without the camp, bearing His reproach…..for they will persecute us for believing and leaving.

Hebrews 13:12-16 KJV
(12) Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
(13) Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
(14) For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.

Let us not render evil for their evil but instead offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually…..that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.

(15) By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
(16) But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased

We are to leave and live by faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called to GO OUT into a place which he should receive an inheritance OBEYED and he WENT OUT, not knowing where he went.

Hebrews 11:
8) By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

By faith, he sojourned in the land (the earth ) of promise as in a strange country.

(9) By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

We are to be built together by Him so that the whole earth is blessed in us.

(10) For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

We ,who are looking for such things, are to be diligent so that we may be found of Him in peace, without spot and blameless. Abraham did not respond in unbelief in his wrath. No, he had FAITH and obeyed the commandment to GET OUT of his “country” and from his kindred and from his father’s house. We are to inherit this earth.... not a literal "new" earth but one that is the home of righteousness of which this current earth is not.

2 Peter 3:13-15 KJV
(13) Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
(14) Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
(15) And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

We must leave our “houses”….our churches. We are to obey like Abraham and have faith and so receive the promises of Abraham. ALL of the families shall be blessed in us. He shall make us a great nation in the earth.

Genesis 12:1-7 KJV
(1) Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
(2) And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
(3) And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

(4) So Abram departed, as the LORD had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran.
(5) And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
(6) And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.

We are also to build an altar unto Him and offer the sacrifice the praise of Him always.

(7) And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.

Hebrews 13:10-12 KJV
(10) We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.
(11) For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
(12) Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

When we leave our churches and are former “families” in them for His sake and the good news (gospel’s), we shall receive 100 percent of what we leave behind. We shall also receive persecutions for leaving them….but we are looking for a continuing city whose maker and builder is God for He shall build us up.

Mark 10:28-31 KJV
(28) Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee.
(29) And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,

(30) But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
(31) But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.

Let us taste of the heavenly gift as we are made partakers of the Holy Spirit whom we hear speaking to us today. Let us taste the good word of God and the power of the age to come and receive the love of the Truth and be saved so that we may be alive to see all of these things come to pass.

Hebrews 6:4-15 KJV
(4) For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
(5) And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
(6) If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame

Let us drink in what we hear the Spirit saying….being filled with what the Spirit says….and bring forth fruits of righteousness: peace….love.

(7) For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
(8) But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.
(9) But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.

Let us hear and not “beat” upon the fellowservants who will preach the Word of God unto them thinking that the Lord delays His coming.

(10) For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
(11) And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:

Let us not be slothful but followers of them through FAITH and PATIENCE inherit the promises. Let us follow Abraham in his faith and obey and get out of our “country” and from our “kindred” and look forward to inheriting this earth where all of the families of the earth shall be blessed in us.

(12) That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
(13) For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,

(14) Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
(15) And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

We know that we shall have passed from death unto life because we love the brothers who are sent to us to preach His Word of Truth to our ears and hearts.

1 John 3:14 KJV
(14) We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.

By FAITH, Enoch was translated that he should not see death. Before his translation, he had this testimony: that he pleased God. We also to hear what the brothers are saying and please God and not be found in our wrath and unbelief of what is said.

Hebrews 11:

(5) By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Let us let brotherly love continue….thereby pleasing God so that we may pass from death unto life and not see our mortal death because of our unrighteous offerings unto sin in our unbelief of what we hear.

Hebrews 13:1-2 KJV
(1) Let brotherly love continue.
(2) Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
