Mt 7: 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and , therefore,it fell: and great was the fall of it.
Matthew 16:17-19 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Luke 6:47-49 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48 he is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
I am talking about building a spiritual house, or where you hope to spend eternity and how to get there.
Jesus said if you hear his words and do them not, you are a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain and storms beat on that house on the sand and it fell and great was the fall of it.
He said a wise man digs deep and finds a rock and builds his house on that Rock. Then when the storms come that house will stand for it is built on a solid rock.
But what does it really mean? How can you tell which foundation you are building on? Simple. Jesus said, he that HEARS my word and either does it, (obeys it) or fails to obey it.. If you obey what Jesus taught you are building on the Rock. If you fail to listen to the Word of God, which is what Jesus taught, then you are building on sand and it will not stand. Every house is going to be tried. If it cannot stand the storms it will be lost.
We either build on the foundation gold, silver and precious stones or wood, hay and stubble. The last three is the house on the sand.
So you must examine what Scripture says and see if you are obeying it or thinking you can just do things your own way and it will work. Those who think they can get by doing things to suit themselves are deceiving themselves and the storms will wash that sand right out from under your house and it will fall.
Most people think that going to church is their thing of service to God. They think as long as they faithfully run to church and pay there, they are making it to heaven. But where does Scripture teach this? I know of no place. So it is a sand foundation.
God solidly forbids celebrating any birthday of Jesus or such. Yet all churches engage in this heathen practice and think they are on that rock. But see they did not dig deep into the word and therefore they are building on sand.
Deut 12, Job 3, Jer 10 and 20, Rev 11 all prove that this is contrary to all that is Godly and is forbidden by God. So all who do this are building on SAND.
See they did not dig deep into the word therefore they think this is not important. Yet Jeremiah 20 clearly says, LET NOT THE DAY WHEREIN I WAS BORN BE BLESSED.
So you who bless the day are building on Sand and it will FALL.
Anything Scripture says to do or not to do must be obeyed. So if you do not study the Word and obey it you are building on sand. When we who teach truth tell you these things, we are trying to get you off that sand and onto that Rock. We are sending those storms on your house and it is washing that sand right out from under your house.
If when you see that your foundation has been washed right out from under the house, if you will then run to the Rock or truth, you might have time to build a house on that rock. That is what we are trying to do. We are trying to wash that sand out from under your house hoping you will understand and get on that Rock.
Jesus told Peter, My Father revealed this to you…that I am the Christ…..the son of the Living God. Not Jesus, Mary’s son….the CHRIST. So this Christ is the inner Son of God, begotten by God, in giving Jesus the Holy Ghost.
Now that is the true revelation and is therefore this ROCK. Until you can get this right everything you believe will be a lie and you will be building on that SAND.
After you can accept this truth, you can begin building on that Rock. But right now, you have no idea what that Rock is. You are building on Sand. We are trying to wash that sand away and put you on that Rock.
Now I wish to show you a mystery. Luke 8: 5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
It lacked moisture because it had not been baptized in water in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin….this is necessary to building a house on the Rock…but notice, this Rock is not the place to put seeds.
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
(So don’t let anyone deceive you into thinking that once you BELIEVE you have heaven made. This said, they believe a while, then FALL AWAY; now this the word of Jesus, so if you call him a lie, your house is surely going to fall)
Here He was speaking of sowing seed; not building a house. You do not want the Seed to fall on a HARD HEART. That kind of rock will destroy the seed.
So there is a great difference in a rock-hard heart and a Rock foundation.
You cannot become a lasting house of God if you start out with a hard heart, rejecting the Word of God each time it is presented to you.
Running to your little church service, (which appeals to the flesh), enjoying music and singing and listening to some paid hireling tell you tales IS NOT GOING TO GET YOU ONTO THAT ROCK FOUNDATION.
It is building on Sand for this is NOT WHAT GOD SAID TO DO. So now, unless you can listen to the Word and begin obeying it, bringing your flesh into subjection to the Word of God, sanctifying yourself to God and separating yourself from the world, your house is going to fall. Going along with holidays is of the World and you know it. You know this is not in God’s word for us to do. You know that, yet you HARDEN your heart like a rock and refuse to obey. So your seed falls on hard ground and cannot bear fruit. Your house is built on sand and will fall.
Only if you can rise up and have time to rebuild on that Rock will you have salvation. You have been warned.
