Having an “Accountable relationship” with a close friend
for the purpose of assisting one another to walk the “straight
and narrow with integrity” is a commendable practice.
But being accountable to God is not something we choose to do.
It’s something that we have absolutely no choice about, for
we shall all stand before our maker on that great day to give an
Multitude is the number that made commitments; entered relationships,
covenanted to pray, fast and support each other through thick and
thin yet all the while they were (cheating) and living a lie.
Their initial intentions may have been pure, but when the Lord is
not the imitating partner to our deals they are impossible to keep.
He alone makes covenant, we should only be a partner to what HE
makes. And what He makes He will keep when we respond fully to Him.
Marriage as instituted by Him is a typical one.
Hebrews 13:10 we have an altar from
which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. The Table
of the Lord is our altar where we remember The Covenant He made
and kept for us, and it’s at His invitation that we come to
renew our allegiance to Him as oft as we come together.
He said “do it” then “do it oft” and then
“keep doing it until I come”. That is until I come for
you, or too you which ever comes first, (you can count on that).
The sin of the Ephesians in Rev 2:4
was that they left their first love, the agape feast. It was a decision
as clear-cut and final as is a divorce. Jude
Ministers who fail to maintain a table with the elements of bread
and wine for the purpose of self examination are guilty of spitting
in the face of Christ. It seems pastors and their sycophantic lackeys
are prepared to do anything but open the door and let Him come in
and sup with them.
Their failure is clearly in evidence when one looks at their casualty
The higher up the pyramid a minister climbs the more dangerous it
becomes. The followers of successful ministers equally play a role
in their shipwrecks by man-worship.
Most believers could jot down a casualty list in next to no time.
I’m not talking about those that fell got up again and truly
repented, but those that never dealt with their sin.
2 Peter 3:9: The Lord is not slack concerning
his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should
come to repentance.
But don’t ever confuse the longsuffering of God with slackness
on His part.
Malachi 3:1-3 Behold, I will send My messenger, and He will
clear the way before Me. And the LORD, whom you seek, shall suddenly
come to His temple, even the Angel of the Covenant, in whom you
delight. Behold, He comes, says the LORD of hosts. But who can endure
the day of His coming?
And who shall stand when He appears for He is like a refiner's fire,
and like fuller's soap. He will sit as a refiner and a purifier
of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold
and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.
Psa 96:13 he comes to judge the earth
and he shall judge it with righteousness and the people with his
Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the
door and knock: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I
will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Show me a soul that walks in the light and you’ve shown me
a soul with a personal Altar in his life.
“Out of the heart proceeds evil”, but who can know the
heart of another save the heart of that man himself.
