(KJV.) II PETER 2:17-19
(17) These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
(18) For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error:
(19) While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
FAITHFUL, FRUITFUL AND FLAWLESS
Brethren, through the sacred blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, believers are established in his righteousness forever; according to his heavenly power, we receive things that relate to life and righteousness, by knowing him, that he had called us into honors and supernatural powers, given freely by grace, that we will partake of his divine nature, after redemption from world of darkness into his marvellous lights,
However, there are true believers and fake believers, wolves in sheep clothings, bad apples, among the good apples; false prophets and teachers, who are deceivers of men, walking in diverse ways of ungodliness, participating in works of darkness, engaged in lusts of the flesh, but still serving Jesus Christ; Apostle Peter refers to these people in the above text; as wells without water; the question is, what is the benefit of any water well, when it has no water for human consumption?; it is good for nothing, than to be filled up with dirt of the earth; therefore, let our wells be dug deeply, full of living waters, by reading, hearing, studying of the scriptures, be approved by our Father as servants that are worthy to receive crown of glories in his righteousness, be faithful, fruitful and flawless in all our undertakings, endeavor to walk in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, dryness is deadly; of clouds that are carried with a tempest; these are people who carry themselves about without discretions, good sense of directions; in other words, a Jack of all trees, but have no master; desire to serve Jesus Christ, without spiritual guidance, rather, carnally inclined in all their ways: therefore, believers, let us not get carried away and about, think that we can do something for Jesus Chirst, but without him; depending upon our own carnalities, without spiritual empowerment; for he said, .....for without me ye can do nothing. (John 15:5); therefore, it is as important aspect of believers lives to seek him first in our undertakings, withdraw from his resources, allow the Holy Spirit to strengthen, guide our pathways in his righteousness, we cannot be disgraced among the heathen, seek his empowerments before spiritual endeavors; Peter went on to say, people who serve Jesus Christ with deceptions, are still in darkness, and their faiths are not concentrated in the light of Jesus Christ, but they are clouded in world of darkness, bundled up within their own carnalities forever; the ponder point of today is, where is our faith?; is it in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, or caught up in our own carnal world of darkness?
Many times, when believers receive greater empowerments of the Holy Spirit, if care is not taken, they will get derailed in the body of Christ; bring upon themselves disgrace, condemnations, allow spirits of arrogancy and prideful overshadow the glory of our Father, forget that all powers belong to our Father given through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; the moment a believer gets carried away, think pridefully, that they have achieve spiritual powers by their own human efforts; watch out!; the enemy of our souls, is warfaring to possess that chosen vessel as an instrument of evil in disguise, later bring upon them damnation; believer's solid foundations are built upon the resources of Jesus Christ, and not upon our own human efforts; therefore, let us not speak vainly, declaring words that we know that are not from the Holy Spirit, giving unhopeful promises, from wells with no water; also, let us not try to mixed up water with oil, that is to attain other spiritual powers, mediums, sorceries of empowerments to do the will of Jesus Christ; that does not work either; but follow strictly the truthfulness of the scriptures; faithfully obey and serve Jesus Christ, when our spiritual wells experience dryness, maybe, it is time for spiritual cleaning, to prepare for fresh spiritual anointing oils through fasting, prayers and supplications; Jesus is faithful, and will replenish our dryness with living waters, so that we flourish with green grass, fresh anointings, be oracles of the Holy Spirit, without blemish; for all things of the spirits are our possessions forever, so long as we are align ourselves to his will and not for selfish reasons; therefore, let us not allow spiritual corruptions overtake purposes of our Father, laid down through the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, upon which we preach the gospel truthfully, joyfully serve him, until the day of reconciliation to dwell with him forevermore.
Dearly beloved, let us exemplify ourselves with the attributes of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; while we preach to others to walk in his righteousness, let us not forget to practice what we preach, because enemies are watching our footsteps to see if we will stumble in areas which we claim to be righteous; therefore, be ware, be sober, be vigilant, prayerful; our adversary the devil, as a roaring, wounded lion, walking around, looking for preys to devour; however, no weapon formed against believers shall prosper, by the power blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, his death on cross and resurrection, we are victorious in world of darkness forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
