(KJV.) JAMES 1:23-25
(23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass.
(24) For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner he was.
(25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY
Brethren, one way or another ways, Christian believers receive, experience the resurrection powers of the Holy Spirit's manifestations within innermost spirits, before they become mature Christians; furthermore, the work of the Holy Spirit does not cease abruptly, after they become redeemed and sanctified, but many times, are glorified or yet to be glorified; the Holy Spirit continues to manifest his spiritual powers through hearts of believers, to accomplish his works among the darkness of this world; therefore, today, if we should hear his voice, let us not turn deaf ears upon his counsels, but yield to his instructions, leaderships according to his will; diligently, faithfully accomplish earthly assignments, receive eternal golden crowns of glories, be joint heirs with Jesus Christ forevermore.
However, life is a journey in the garden of roses, bearing thorns and thistles; the roses are beautiful to stare at, but to pluck any, one has to beware of the thorns and thistles, not to get poked and bled to death; inferentially, it is easier for believers to receive Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord and Savior, believe in him, have salvation, grace and eternal lives; after redemptions, journeys of faiths into eternity, believers struggle to solidify their faith in his righteousness; the flesh lusts against the spirit, and vice versa; ref. Galatians 5:17; many times, challengeful; why?, because once believers receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the enemy of our souls, loses a battle over their souls; and we know that he is not happy as a loser; though he lost the battle over our souls, when Jesus Christ shed his blood, died on the cross, rose again from the death, grant salvation, free grace and eternal lives to believers; therefore, whenever souls are redeemed from world of darkness into marvellous lights of Jesus Christ, the enemy warfares against those believers, to derail them back into world of darkness; let us beware of his treats and tricks, resist his temptations to yield to his dubious ways, and he will flee away sorrowfully.
How do we keep ourselves from fallen into his temptations?, by reading, studying of the scriptures; for example, when Jesus was lead of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil, if he did not know the scriptures, to defend himself against the devil, Jesus would have failed his testing three times; refer to Matthew chapter 4; subsequently, if we hear his words from preachers of the gospel, let us act upon his words, do what we are required to do as believers, walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, who called us out of darkness into his marvellous lights, be shining lights of the world, affect positives changes in world of darkness.
Dearly beloved, anyone who hears kingdom words of our Father, take action to secure themselves in his freedom, enjoy grace without controls and restrictions of the flesh, desires to obey his words, do his will, that individual is blessed and highly favoured in this world, forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
