Warnings – FellowServant Scourgings

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:
be ye therefore wise as serpents,
and harmless as doves.

But beware of men:
for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
Matthew 10:16-17 KJV

But when they deliver you up,
take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
Matthew 10:19-20 KJV

And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death,
and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
Matthew 10:21 KJV

Brother- can be literal family,
AND also – Brethren, etc.

Death- Literal and/or Figuratively

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Matthew 10:22 KJV

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.
What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
Matthew 10:26-27 KJV

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:28 KJV

(Luke 21:16-19)

These statements are not contradicting when we understand the ‘spiritual death‘/ falling away. God does not contradict Himself.

And then shall many BE offended,
and shall betray one another,
and shall hate one another.
Matthew 24:10 KJV

“..BE offended…”

It’s up to each person if they TAKE Offense.

smite his fellowservants

Don’t be Offended!

Don’t Offend!

If God’s Word gives offense,
that’s between them and God.

(Pray, Study)

Looking at the translation of the Greek word, you see ‘falling away’ is listed…with additional, interesting definitions.
And it certainly sheds some light on HOW many fall away.

BETRAYAL:

Betrayal is the breaking or violation of a presumptive contract, trust, or confidence that produces moral and psychological conflict within a relationship amongst individuals, between organizations or between individuals and organizations.

“…and shall betray one another…”

Interestingly, ‘BETRAYAL’ is done by someone we care for, feel ‘connection’ with, etc.

*Friends, Family, *Brethren
[*or who we thought were], etc.

That’s why it hurts so much.

SEE: FORGIVE

…They will reverence my son.

But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
Matthew 21:37-39

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth his coming;
And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 24:44‭-‬51 KJV

NOTICE: They are Fellowservants, Servants;
Waiting for the (same) Lord.

They shall put you out of the synagogues:
yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come,
ye may remember that I told you of them.
And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
John 16:2‭-‬4 KJV

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ye shall know them by their fruits…

Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
(Matthew 7:15-17)

See: Trying/Testing the spirits

Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.
2 Timothy 3:5 KJV

Traits in the Last Days,
Of those who call themselves
‘Christians’, but are not.

👇 👇 👇 👇 👇 👇

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof:
from such turn away.
2 Timothy 3:1‭-‬5 KJV

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another.
John 13:35 KJV

Jesus warned us and also gave us the means to not be deceived and to overcome.

Praise be to God!!

But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
You are children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober….(1 Thessalonians 5:4-6)

Watch our hearts ♡♡♡
Trust GOD and His Word ONLY

and be sober,
Not drunken with false doctrine

Please Lord Jesus,
Help us to endure to the end!
You have given us every means
(Holy Spirit, Your Word-Your Truth)
Comfort us when we need comfort. Help us to walk in Your Spirit and not in the flesh.
Pray we remain humble and submissive to You, Oh Lord, always.
Chastise us when and as we need it.

You’re LORD, You are my God.
And NOTHING is without you knowing.
You are our strength, You are our Deliverer!
You are GOD!
Your Will be done.
Praise and Glory be to YOU!
Forever and ever!
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
