Greetings in the name of Jesus! This is Rob Haymes. This is 15 Minutes With Jesus. Wherever two or three are gathered together in My name, Jesus said, there am I in the midst of them. To those of you who love Him in truth: mercy unto you and peace and love be multiplied.
Thank you Lord! We praise you Lord! We praise your holy name, Father; we bless your holy name. Thank you for this program Father: Servants To Whom You Obey. Let’s turn to Rom 2:1, Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things, referring to Rom 1: speaking about various kinds of sin. And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath, notice: the day of wrath, it’s coming, and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to each one according to his deeds: that includes all of you Christians who are reading this; all of us; all the Christians; all the sinners; every human being who's ever lived: each one, according to his deeds; that is what is written; anything else is a lie; eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek; but glory, honor, and peace to everyone, that’s everyone, who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For there is no partiality with God. The Scripture says that God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance, Amen, but that all should be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth. Rom 3:21, But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and upon all who believe. For there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. Praise God. John the Baptist said, Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
Romans 6, verse 1, What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves servants to obey, you are that one's servants whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. In the King James Version it says, servants of righteousness, but slaves is a better word. I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness: holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Verse 18, And having been set free from sin, you became the servants of righteousness. Are you a servant of sin? Or are you a servant of righteousness? Are you serving sin? Or are you serving righteousness? In John 8:34, Jesus said, Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin, or practices sin, is a servant of sin. If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. He said there in John 8:31, If you continue in My Word you will be My disciples indeed, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. Right! The Son will set you free if you will continue in His Word!; if you will continue in Him!
Eph 2:1, And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace, Hallelujah!, in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus! For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. What kind of works are you walking in? If you are a servant of righteousness, then you will be doing righteous works. What are righteous works? Remember, Jesus said, Not everyone who says, Lord, Lord, is going into the Kingdom of God, but they that do the will of My Father in Heaven. Many shall say to Me, in that day, Jesus said, Lord, Lord, have we not done many wonderful works in your name? And then I will say to them, I never knew you, depart from Me, you that work iniquity. Therefore, He said, whosoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man that built his house upon a rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. The Scripture says, They that are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God. Jesus said that they that do the will of My Father are going into the Kingdom of God; they that keep My sayings will not be moved; they will be able to stand when the storms come. Jesus said, My sheep hear My voice, and they follow Me. He said to His disciples, When I go to the Father, I’m not going to leave you alone; I’m going to send another Comforter, that He will be with you forever, and He will guide you into all truth. On the day of Pentecost He sent the Holy Spirit, and He was poured out upon the disciples, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. They began to be led by Him, and He began to work in them and through them. So it should be for every person who believes in Jesus. We must be filled with the Holy Spirit, so we can be led by Him every day to follow Jesus, to do the Father’s will. Then the works that we do will truly be good works, and we will be rewarded accordingly at the final judgment. If we do works that we think are good, or that someone else says are good works, we may find out some day that they were not what the Father willed for us, and they were done of our own flesh: works of iniquity. They will be consumed in the fire that is going to try all of our works. But there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. The righteous requirement of the law is fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. If we will be filled with the Holy Spirit and yield to Him to do what He is leading us to do, we will be doing good works; we will be servants of righteousness. Do you not know that to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants you are to whom you obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness.
Interpretation of a message in tongues:
I am God Almighty. Hearken unto My Words. I am with you: those of you who have a willing heart to do good; to do righteous works, I am with you. Hearken unto My Words; seek My face; seek Me with all your heart. I am with you unto the end. Obey My voice; yield to My Holy Spirit and follow Me. Then you will be doing good works, says the Lord.
