Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold
Lethal heart conditions is a series of messages that my Beloved LORD JESUS first begin to give me on February 28, 2018. HE spoke to me about the very harmful, and destructive spiritual conditions of the heart that leads to death.
Four things should be noted as you go through this series:
1) Our Beloved LORD GOD’s messages are not about the physical heart. The physical heart like the rest of our physical body, is not who we are; it is just the place where we temporarily reside (Job 4:19, Lam 4:2, 2 Cor 4:7). Our physical bodies are mortal (will eventually die), and as such can be killed (Mat 10:28, Luk 12:4-5).
2) Our Beloved LORD GOD’s messages are about our spiritual heart, also known as:
a. our soul (Psa 103:1-2, Psa 119:129)
b. our inner man (Rom 7:22, 2 Cor 4:16, Eph 3:16)
c. the unseen or hidden person within each of us (1 Pet 3:4)
Our spiritual heart, is the very core or essence of who we are (Psa 42:1-2, Psa 130:5-6). It is It is the place where our thoughts, our will, our emotions, our attitudes reside. It is within this place where harmful and destructive spiritual conditions left unchecked, leads to spiritual or the second death (Rev 20:14-15, Rev 21:8). The soul/inner man/hidden person is immortal (will never die). It is the part of us that will either have eternal life or eternal judgment and punishment (Dan 12:2, Mat 25:46, Jhn 5:29).
3) Our Beloved LORD GOD is calling each one of us to:
a. to examine ourselves (Lam 3:40)
b. to probe ourselves (Psa 139:23-24)
c. to consider ourselves (Psa 119:59-60)
d. to test ourselves (2 Cor 13:5)
To confirm that we have not fallen (1 Cor 10:12, Rev 2:5), or repent, return and be revived (Act 3:19, Psa 119:25).
4) Every single lethal heart condition of the inner man represents a stage in a disobedient heart. Disobedience or sin in one’s spiritual life is equivalent to the gradual build-up of plaque in one’s physical arteries; both of them left unchecked lead to death.
In conclusion, there are two questions that you should prayerfully consider:
1) How does one know if their heart is disobedient? The answer is found in the opening Scripture, Matthew 24:12. Are you still as devoted to studying HIS WORD, and being in HIS presence (Jer 2:2) as you were when you first came to HIM? Or do you now justify all the reasons why you can’t? Is pleasing yourself more important than pleasing HIM (Jhn 8:29, 2 Cor 5:9, Eph 5:10)? A disobedient heart is one that is growing or has become cold. It is a heart that loves our Beloved LORD JESUS less than at the beginning (John 14:15 and John 14:21).
2) How can one test the condition of their heart? Consider your answer to the following questions, does HIS WORD still move you (Neh 8:8-9, Psa 119:120, Isa 66:2)? Do you call JESUS your LORD, and yet you do not submit to HIS authority in your life (Luk 6:46, Eze 33:30-32)? Are you ashamed of your sin (Isa 3:9, Jer 8:12)? Do you remember the last time you heard the voice of GOD speak to you (Isa 30:21, 1 Sam 28:6, Pro 1:28-31)? Are you aware HE sees and knows everything you do (Job 34:21-23, Psa 90:8, Pro 15:3, Heb 4:13)? Do you care (Psa 119:136, Eze 9:4)?
