Matthew 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Worship and doubt happened to people seeing Jesus face to face, imagine now. “ALL nations,” is very clear , “teaching them to observe ALL things whatsoever I have commanded you,” all things commanded is clear.
Jesus is with His followers to the very end of this mess. There is no nation excluded, they and we had one job. This week there was a woman in Somalia that lost her family , children and all she had to follow Jesus. This week in America there was a sports player fined for wear something that said man of God and he said he would not do it again. When we build the foundation of the church on part of what Jesus commanded we obey the commands of the world. The Lord is showing us how weak the foundation is in America. We split and went all kinds of directions doing a little of this and a little of that. We live in a nation that preachers and teachers read Matthew 28 and created what nations are special. We live in a nation of teachers and preachers that read Matthew 28 and chose what commands are to be followed.
The reason it was so important to “observe all things commanded ,”can be seen in our faith. It took all to survive and live. Weak false prophets , teachers and preachers bring death...Most of us would never want to physically kill someone, yet the world is full of self made preachers , teachers and prophets do it everyday.
There had to be a church living , teaching and following all Jesus commanded. Our enemy, satan was very clever to create the mess we have. The sad thing is few see we have a mess that is causing death, not life.
“Luke 14:26 If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”
That woman in Somalia is what we read about in Luke 14:26. Have no part of anything God has to be hidden , not talked about or not observing all the commands. Be that woman even if it means being alone... There is not one person the Lord called that did not face Luke 14:26...We said we can do both , Jesus is very clear in all His commands. Following Jesus always came with a cost, the old can not be part of the new...Our salvation came at a great cost and our reward is no where on this planet it never was.
