4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Many Believers have forgotten their First Love, because of religion and the doctrine of man, and the misinterpretation of Scripture, the lack of study, the lack of prayer, and the lack of teaching.
People have lost the enthusiasm, passion and fear that they embraced when they came into a personal relationship, and realized the Messiah first loved them, by giving his life, that we may have eternal life with Him and the Father forever.
People have forgotten His commandments, people are living unrepentant, lawless, serving other Gods, worshiping idols, following false teachers and prophets, chasing money, listening to Luke Warn doctrines to feel good about their sin and lifestyle, and all while thinking they are saved because they are under grace.
The bible says in Romans 6:1-2 “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
The Bible also says in Isaiah 59:2 “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.”
The was a time when we feared YAHWEH (GOD) and trembled at his name. We got down on our knees and Repented for our sins, our transgressions, and our iniquities, so that our names would written back into the Lambs Book of Life.
People have forgotten “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
People have forgotten “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
People have forgotten “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.”
And lastly, people have forgotten this passage of scripture. “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
In closing, If you Love YAHWEH (GOD) and His Son Yahshua (Jesus) then Repent, so that you may return to your First Love again, and get back that enthusiasm and passion, fear, and personal relationship you once had with Him, so the Holy Spirit can enter in and sup with you, and then you will have the desires of your heart.
It doesn’t matter WHO you are, your station, whether you are in the Pulpit or the congregation, left the Church, looking for a Church etc. His arms are open wide, just waiting for you.
We ALL need to REPENT. Know one is above it. I have done so myself,because I don’t take this Revelation from the Holy Spirit lightly.
To YAHWEH (GOD) be ALL the Glory, now and forever more.
