We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light; “



A PECULIAR PEOPLE

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: We are surely coming to know and understand first-hand, all that it will costs to embark and succeed on this walk in Christ. We Have been made to walk through many valleys of the shadow of death, emboldened by Love & Truth and each step directed by The way of The Lord through His Holy Spirit. Psalms 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: strategic efforts which employ a host of coercion and pressure tactics have been implemented and executed for the specific purpose of making those of us in christ, derail, give in and turn away from our faith in god’s sovereignty and instead look to them in the world for refuge and sustenance. They cleverly & insidiously move and conspire to strip from us everyONE and everyTHING that we hold most dear. Job 2:9-10 – “Then his (Job) wife said to him, ‘Do you still hold fast to your integrity?  Curse God and die!’  But he said to her, ‘You speak as one of the foolish women would speak.  Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?’  In all of this Job did not sin with his lips.”  To We, The Peculiar People, the trials of Job, they are also happening to us today so Whatever you may have to go through, do not turn away from The Truth. Do not doubt The Word. The Lord is seeing us through. Just believe Him and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. You’re getting through this. We are all getting through this, together. You can always locate peace and freedom in the truth of The Word. The Lord is in full control.

There iS ONLY ONE GOD. HE IS SOVEREIGN.       HIS NAME IS JESUS.    

OUR GOD, TO WHICH THERE IS ONLY ONE; HE IS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, HE IS MIGHTY, HE IS AWESOME. ALL THINGS EXIST ONLY THROUGH HIS SOVERIEGN RULE & AUTHORITY. HE HAS A NAME AND HIS NAME IS JESUS. IN HIM ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. HE IS FAITHFUL AND TRUE. 

Isaiah 46:9-10 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: With each one of us, It will appear for a time, that they are acheiving tremendous levels of perceived success because of our exposure to their extreme sadistic measures. Psalm 21:11 Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed. Rest assured - This is only temporary because we are in the fold of the good shepherd.  We are His peculiar flock of sheep and we are kept safe and secure in the hands of the God Almighty. Take refuge in the loving and trusting arms of The Lord. 

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: But Make no mistake Oh peculiar people, That part of their methodical plan will hurt quite a bit. In Fact, This part hurts a lot. How long it hurts will depend a great deal on you and how much you are able to surrender all of the hurt and pain to The Lord. You must Release it; all of it - And do not Identify with it. Disassociate with it. It does not belong to you. 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.The pain you experience will continue until only after you have begun to understand that this is exactly what it was designed to do. That’s right, this part of their plan is literally designed to Hurt like hell. The reason is simple. It is so that you will become extremely self-centred to the point where you can only focus on the pain you experience. further, it is also designed make you become bitter, depressed hateful and angry. It is designed to break you; to shatter your heart into a million peices and beyond repair. It is also designed to make you turn to them, to their instititions and to their systems for dependency. It is designed to place you in bondage and to control you. They are counting on the pain becoming so great that your spirit will eventually break and you will seek their wordly counsel, aid and solutions for relief. Whatever you do, DO NOT fall into this trap. Stay with the Lord and only move according to the leading of the holy spirit.  The quicker the Holy Spirit can move you through this stage, the better And then the sooner The Lord will be able to use you for greater kingdom purposes.  Ceaselessly turn to the lord for healing, for strengthening, for comfort and for understanding. There is much you will learn as you move through this part. When you turn to the lord, The holy spirit begins to help you realize that it not exactly personal, even though those personal to you are the ones being used to come against you. Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  What is happening is much bigger than you realize and the battle is taking place on a much larger landscape than we can see. It can only be explained spiritual. much has to be revealed. This Is a real but futile war against Christ, our Lord and saviour. We are His Body. We have taken up our cross for his sake. Jesus, our Lord and Saviour is our Commander In Chief; we are his Soldiers. It Is He who is fights on our behalf and who has already won the victory for us. It is only for us to believe.

Army or the Lord RNSM circle

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: This is all about the coming of Christ. you, peculiar people are His body/temple and you are quite simply under attack from by a Anti-Christ (or fallen) agenda. So, yes, you may experience those you love falling away from you, one by one, taking with them what has proved to only be a “conditional” support system that you had once believed was a sure.  But Do not despair. You are in the surest and most secure place of all with lord. Stay there with him no matter how bad it hurts. The pain is just temporary. The Lord knows exactly what you going through and exactly what you need. You are in training and This will be your greatest test. Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. This is where you must stay completely in The Word and trust God. The holy Spirit is now leading you into greater truth and so this is where you now begin to really understand things like never ever before. Do not give up. Use wisdom in all things and allow the love of the holy spirit to comfort you, to teach you, to guard you and protect you during this time of great turbulence and trial in your life. This is where you must surrender more. This is where you must surrender all. Understand that a spiritual shift has taken place in the realm of the spirit. In the moment your eyes began to open,  a carefully devised plan of execution was immediately set in motion. In fact, left as a sign of confirmation, Jesus warns us peculiar little flock that this is what would happen to us. He told us that we would be persecuted for standing up for the sake of Truth, for the sake of love and for the sake of Loyalty to The Kingdom of God; We are the Peculiar People being crucified For Christ’s Sake. Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  In our times of weakness many have come to deceive us in efforts to derail us from our path. They tempt us and try to confuse us. They set up to feed us with false doctrine in order to persuade our virtues to their unrighteous will. They will use whatever power, title, authority and influence to pressure us into following their ways and not the ways of The Lord. Matthew 4:8-10 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.” They will employ tactics of coercion, fear, rejection and abandonment; anything to make us follow their voice and turn from the voice of the Holy Spirit; The One who leads us into All Truth. Remember, Our bodies are the temple for the Lord. So the measures used against us will surely weaken our body/temple and cause us to stumble but please do not despair. At every turn, go to the lord; surrender and fall down on your knees in prayer and submission. God will minister to you through the Holy Spirit. He will strenghthen you and heal you. He is always leading us back onto the path. 2 Corinthians 12:9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: We will be on the receiving end of all manner of evil for The Lord’s sake; for standing boldly and firmly in The Truth. Evil has and will come against us in a way like nothing we have experienced before. This is because the one that truly follows The Lord will refuse to compromise with The enemy; Not even a little and not even to save his own life; for we know that only in Christ have we already found salvation.  John 12:25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. In the moment we took up our cross for the Lord, we chose never to come into agreement with darkness, so then those agents of evil will come to know only rebuke from us.                                                                   

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  They hate us for the strength of The Lord that is in us; He gives us strength to resist them and causes them to flee. For in us lives the power of the Holy and Righteous Spirit of God; The righteous one who has risen up and continues to rise up to overcome them, time and time again. This is why hate us. James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  We have now officially become the object of their destruction. Through every false judgement, vilification, rejection and abandonment, we must find ourselves down on our knees in prayer at the feet of the Lord. When things get tough, We will surely find ourselves in humility, questioning our own selves , but never God because we know that His judgement is perfect and we trust Him in all things. In our desert of solitude and isolation, we will find ourselves crying out in anguish and concern, repenting and seeking forgiveness for our sins. We understand the importance of repentence and obedience and we must actively guard against falling into  self-righteousness & pride.  The thought of causing pain to our Father pain or disappointment is unbearable for us peculiar ones. This is because of the love and gratitue we personally know for Him is ever so great.  Find yourself in ceaseless submission,  seeking, hoping, desiring only His approval and delight. We must pray diligently asking for greater wisdom and increased discernment. Our service to the kingdom must only be according to His understanding and not by our own. Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your hear and lean not on your own understanding . In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  We know the deafening sound of loneliness and even still we choose to live apart from them. We prefer the density of solitude and isolation rather than the company of the weak and superficial who find cause in the continual partaking of ilolatry and other unclean indulgences. 2 Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  Despite all that they will try to do to us, we will only ever know Love in your hearts for them, even those who betray us and curse us with their tongue. Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute youWe understand and experience in Truth, that the very Love we hold for them is why our hearts have been scourged abrasively by the rough surfaces and conditions of their stony hearts and that this is what has caused the intensity of the pain we have suffered, even for their sake and for the Glory of God.

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  The unthinkable cruelty, selfishness and hatred we have suffered for living steadfast by The Word of God is unimaginable but still we endure. Our strength we find in Jesus.  It is in our presence, that those self-serving unrepentant hearts can no longer have the comfort and insulation of their wrongdoings  being completely hidden from view because now they Know that we can fully see the darkness that resides in them. Consequently, they would seek to destroy the Truth in us rather than give up the flesh-feeding beast within that the holy spirit has fully exposed to even them, through us. Luke 8:17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.  And so now, they can no longer feign innocence and neither will their own efforts of self-denial adequately conceal it. They have been duly exposed.

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  This is why you have been hated. 1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. The light of The Lord you walk with exposes the evil in them; an wickedness that survives only by hiding in darkness. They have no understanding of your light except that within you is the ability to resist, overcome, and expose them and their acts. John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  It is the reflection repugnant and imperfect image of themselves that they will now be forced to look at in the light of The Truth that shines through us, by way of the Holy Spirit. They need only to repent.

So Now We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus: We must now understand that unless they humbly admit to their sins and to the wickedness of their ways; Unless they fall down to the feet of Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords and repent for their evil doings, that in every encounter they have with us,they will be forced to come face to face with the imperfect unholy reflection of the darkness that lives inside of them, For they know you know the Truth of their wicked ways. We overcame them in spite of their efforts to scheme and plot against us. For the prideful and unrepentant, this becomes far too much to bear. So they will move to conspire against us, yet again and more agressively this time. Psalm 31:13 For I have heard the slander of many, Terror is on every side; While they took counsel together against me, They schemed to take away my life. They will seek to find or fabricate cause to convict us and they will rejoice in our demise. 

We, A Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  Simply by looking at what they did to Jesus, we can fully understand the lengths at which they are willing to go to destroy us. In the case of our Lord, they ordered the release of a murderer; a deadly spirit unbound unto their own hate, and in whom they readily embraced into their midst to further embolden them to kill, crucify and bury the Truth that is Jesus Christ; our saviour who gave us life, and who willingly died for our sins and then through the power demonstrated in the resurrection, he rose again so that all who believes in him may inherit life everlasting. Through The Holy Spirit, His Power now abides in you. Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

We, A Chosen and Peculiar People Walking With Jesus:  We must Keep listening to Him and following the voice of the Holy Spirit. John 10:27-28 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. We Are Loved and we are hand-chosen, by The Lord.

In Jesus’ Mighty Name. A Peculiar People We Are Indeed

Christ Is Our Strenth,
