Urging and Guiding

“Many are called, but few are chosen”.  It is my deepest desire to urge and guide you into full maturity as a member of the Remnant.  There are those who will participate in the next major aspect of Our Heavenly Father’s plan, there are those who will observe the outworking of the plan, and finally, there are those who will be blinded to the plan and be without any understanding.

First and foremost, I urge you to focus on getting the revelation of Love.  In a recent post about the passing of Bob Jones, the prophet, Stephen Jones wrote:

About ten years ago, Bob Jones had a near-death experience but was prayed back to life. He returned with a word from the Lord. He said that when we meet Jesus, He will not ask how many people were saved under your ministry, but will ask: Did you learn to love? In other words, it is not really about our works, but about our character and relationship with God and men.

What an important question that Jesus asked him!  How would you respond?  I urge you to be rooted and grounded in Love.  As many of you know we have two books available on this topic at: www.unity153.net

Guiding you to maturity is not meant to replace your time praying or studying the Scriptures.  It is meant to aid you as an additional resource and encouragement.  The specific purpose of our online Bible studies is to assist you toward a greater level of maturity.  We are of no reputation and only want to point you toward the straight and narrow path of righteousness in a world filled with perversion and lawlessness.  We want you to be prepared at the coming of the next “Day of the LORD”.  As you come to full maturity, you will be included in the “Standard” to be used in the judgment to come.  Let me explain.  When Jesus came as a light unto the world, this was a standard by which sin was exposed.  When the Law was given at Mount Sinai, sin could then be judged. A “standard” is something you measure against.  When a standard is raised, a comparison of righteousness is then given that sin can be dealt with in corrective judgment.

Consider Noah:

Genesis 6:9  This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.


  1. complete, whole, entire, sound

    1. complete, whole, entire

    2. whole, sound, healthful

    3. complete, entire (of time)

    4. sound, wholesome, unimpaired, innocent, having integrity

    5. what is complete or entirely in accord with truth and fact

Wouldn’t you say that Noah was a “standard” by which the rest of the inhabitants of the earth could be judged against?

:11  The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

:12  So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.

Our Heavenly Father looked upon the earth and compared the inhabitants to Noah.  It was now time for judgment to come.  The standard had been raised.  Our Heavenly Father waited for the ark to be built before evoking judgment on the earth: 1 Peter 3: 20 … the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.

Our Heavenly Father is patiently “waiting” for HIS harvest of mature sons and daughters.  HE is awaiting the “perfection” or fullness of maturity of HIS Remnant in Love:

1 John 2:5  But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him.

1 John 4:17  Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.

1 John 4:18  There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

Only you can determine if you are moving toward full maturity or perfection.  I can urge you and guide you toward full maturity, but in the end, you must make the commitment yourself.  You must set aside time to pray and meditate on the Scriptures.  You must immerse yourself in the study of those areas where you are weak.  There is power in HIS Word.  Kemper’s book “Raising the Remnant” provides an excellent outline to the path of full maturity.  That is why we are currently conducting the Bible study focusing on this book (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/the-baptism-of-love)

We are to set aside human standards for those standards are increasingly based on lawlessness and perversity.  We must base our lives on Our Heavenly Father’s standards.  We do not wage war according to the flesh for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.  We are called to maturity in order that the carnal and corrupt world and every thought that exalt itself against the knowledge of Our Heavenly Father may be judged.  We must take every thought captive and teach people to obey Christ.  As 1 Corinthians 10:6 says “and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled."  Our obedience is fulfilled when we reach “perfection” or maturity.  At that time will the fullness of time arrive.  I urge you to press in and be a participant, not just an observer.
