What is the Passover? What Biblical significance does it have today? Why did Jesus say, “The Kingdom of God is within you?” Why did John say, “Little children, keep yourselves from idols?” How do you know that you are born again? What does the Bible mean when it says sanctification? Why are we told that this world spiritually is Sodom and Egypt? Why did Moses forsake Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: but endured, as seeing Him who is invisible. Why did Peter tell us as strangers and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul?
What are strangers and pilgrims? If The Bible says that the whole world is Sodom and Egypt, should we apply this understanding when reading the entire Bible? What idols are we to keep ourselves from? Can we be born again without doing this? What if we are not sanctified? Do we have to forsake Egypt? Why did Jesus say, “He that forsaketh not all that he hath, cannot be my disciple?
Questions, questions, so many questions. Do you ever take the time to consider the verses within the Bible? Do you take the time to pray over them? Do you seek out the answers on your own with the Lord? Or, do you rely on others to tell you what it says? The following are two short videos. Instead of me trying to teach you, allow the Spirit of All Truth to teach you. What you will see is the KJV Bible with the Strong’s Concordance. All that you need to do is read, follow along, listen to what is being said, and look deeper at the definitions of the original Hebrew and Greek. Other verses will be inserted, as you are considering what you are seeing. Ponder it all with your own understanding of Scripture. Let go of all preconceived notions, and simply read what is in front of you. Before doing so, think upon one thing, “The flesh wars against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh.”
The next video in the series is “Be Ready Against The Third Day – Be The Wise VIRGIN – Prepare For The Passover Part 2.” Consider all of the questions at the beginning of this post, and ponder deeply what you just saw and heard.
“And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left. Ye shall defile (pronounce utterly unclean) also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.” – Isaiah 30:20-22.

When you truly understand what we all did in the first place, it is much easier to understand why we all must repent. Once we know who we are and where we come from, everything slowly falls into place and begins to make sense. I pray that this website will help lead you in your own walk with the Lord God, as we learn to let go of ourselves, to become more like Him.
