“Under Cover BOSS – 101” …Blog.
*** (Matthew 7:21-22-23) NOT Everyone = who says to Me [Jesus], Lord! Lord! [Boss, Boss]Shall enter the kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will [Word] of My Father in Heaven.
(Matt 7:22) MANY = will say to Me [Jesus] in that day, Lord! Lord! [Boss, Boss]Did we not prophesy in Your name, and through Your name throw out demons, and through Your name do many wonderful works?
(Matt 7:23) And then I [Jesus] will say to them = I never knew you! = Depart from Me, those working Lawlessness!
May I share…? One of my Favorite TV programs [and there are NOT many]Is called “Under Cover Boss”…! Usually a CEO or CFO of a Fortune 100 or Fortune 500 Company… will go … :Under Cover Disguised… as a common Worker: to see the workings of his or her Company… from the ground UP! I cannot say enough Good about this Program. That American Work Ethic…. That has made America such a great Nation… is revealed by the “Work Ethic” of these ground floor workers. When the Investigation is OVER: they then reveal themselves to the Workers! Many of them are Rewarded & Promoted… for their Dedication and Hard Work… to the companies they Work For!
*** (1Jn 4:18-19-20) There is no fear in love [Agape], but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has torment. He who fears has NOT been perfected in love.
(1Jn 4:19) We love Him because He first loved us.
(1Jn 4:20) If anyone says, I love God, and hates his brother, he is a LIAR. For if he does NOT love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love [Agape] God whom he has not seen?
*** (Matthew 24:12) And because Iniquity [Lawlessness] shall abound, the LOVE [Agape] of many will become cold.
I then began to… “QUESTION”…? Those of US… who are “Truly Born Again”… are we Working for Our LORD…? Or are we just doing as little as possible… “To the “ONES we are called to SERVE”…? Husbands & Wives, Parents & Children…? How about our Employers. Do we serve them with our WORK… “As Unto the LORD… and NOT Unto Mankind”…? If we don’t, they how can we say… “We Love Jesus”…? Please tell me HOW…? Dare I challenge You to Examine Yourself…?
*** (2Jn 1:8) Look to yourselves, so that we may NOT lose those things which we worked out, but that we may receive a FULL REWARD.
*** (Ephesians 2:8-9-10) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
(Eph 2:9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.
(Eph 2:10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
*** (Colossians 3:22-to-25) Slaves, obey your masters according to the flesh in all things; not with eye-service, as men-pleasers, but in singleness of heart, fearing God.
(Col 3:23) And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and NOT to men;
(Col 3:24) knowing that from the Lord you shall receive the reward of the inheritance. For you serve the Lord Christ.
(Col 3:25) But he who does WRONG: shall receive justice for the wrong which he did, and there is no respect of persons. [Ecclesiastes 12:13-14]
*** (John 8:28-to32) Then Jesus said to them, When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you shall know that I AM, and that I do nothing of Myself, but as My Father has taught Me, I speak these things.
(John 8:29) And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things which please Him.
(John 8:30) As He spoke these words, many believed upon Him.
(John 8:31) Then Jesus said to the Jews who believed on Him, If you continue in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.
(John 8:32) And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you Free.
*** (Hebrews 5:8-9) though being a Son, yet He [Jesus] learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
(Heb 5:9) And being perfected, He became the Author of eternal salvation to all those who OBEY Him,
*** (1Peter 2:18-to25) Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to those good and forbearing, but also to the perverse ones.
(1Pe 2:19) For this is a grace, if for conscience toward God anyone endures grief, suffering wrongfully.
(1Pe 2:20) For what glory is it if you patiently endure while sinning and being buffeted? But if you suffer while doing good, and patiently endure, this is a grace from God.
(1Pe 2:21) For you were not called to this? For Christ also suffered on our behalf, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps,
(1Pe 2:22) He [Christ] Who did NO sin, NOR was guile found in His mouth,
(1Pe 2:23) who when He was reviled did not revile in return. When He suffered, He did not threaten, but gave Himself up to Him Who judges righteously.[Genesis 18:25]
(1Pe 2:24) He Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness; by whose stripes you were healed.
(1Pe 2:25) For you were as sheep going astray, but now you are turned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.
You may examine any Church in America…? Why are “Pseudo Christians”…. Who are Supposed to be FORGVEN by Christ… “Divorcing and Remarrying into Adultery”…? [Mark 10:11-12] National Statistics say that 50/60 % of All Marriages… “End In Divorce”…! It is the Same for Those WHO say they are Christians… as for those Who DO NOT profess a Relationship with Christ Jesus…! Instead of Christians being an… EXAMPLE of Righteous Living… they simply follow the example of the Godless Sinners. They have FAILED… to be the Salt of the Earth…!
*** (Matthew 5:13) You are the SALT of the world. But if the salt should lose its taste; how can it be made salty again? It's good for Nothing but to be thrown out and trampled on by people.
*** (1Peter 4:17-18-19) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pet 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
(1Pet 4:19) Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a faithful Creator.
*** (Amos 4:10) I [God] have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: = your young men have I slain with the sword, = and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have you not returned [REPENTED] unto Me, says the LORD.
*** (James 4:4-to-10) You Adulterers and Adulteresses! Don't you know that friendship with the world means hostility [War] with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. [Matthew 6:24 & Luke 16:13]
(Jas 4:5) Or do you think the Scripture means nothing: when it says that the Spirit that God caused to live in us jealously yearns for us? [Joshua 24:19]
(Jas 4:6) But He gives all the more grace. And so He says, "God opposes the arrogant: but gives grace to the humble." [2Corinthains 12:6-to-10 & Hebrews 4:16]
(Jas 4:7) Therefore, Submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
(Jas 4:8) Come close to God, and He will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and Purify your hearts, you double-minded.
(Jas 4:9) Be Miserable, Mourn, and Cry. [Repent] Let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom.
(Jas 4:10) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.

*** (2Corinthains 13:5) examine yourselves; whether you are in the faith; prove your own selves. Do you NOT know your own selves; that Jesus Christ is in you [Romans 8:9]; unless you are Reprobates?
