First off I have a few scriptures id like to add to this post! I find many of today’s children of Yahuah boasting on their works and deeds. So I’ll start off with these scriptures as a warning to you all!
Matthew 6:2” So when you give to the poor, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, so that they may be honored by men Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
Proverbs 27:2 Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; A stranger, and not your own lips.
1 Corinthians 3:21 So then let no one boast in men For all things belong to you,
James 4:16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil.
Jeremiah 9:23-24 Thus says Yahuah, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am Yahuah who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares Yahuah.
I received a message from a few and they proceed to tell me all the things they did for their fellow man and how many that were saved because of their deeds.
Well we save no-one to begin with! Yahusha does that and we plant seeds nothing more. We are suppose to be silent about what we do when we do something special for someone. As the scriptures say above we are not supposed to blow our own horns.
Nowadays that’s all you see everywhere. On YouTube, Facebook even in Walmart’s they put names up of people who donate to charity. I thought my understanding of the scripture was very clear on this matter. Be silent of your deeds!!
Well I’ll say this you have your rewards already don’t you? You clearly no nothing of the scripture do you? You go around like you are saving people.
Let me understand something here. Did Yahusha ever tell us we could save anyone or did He say that was His job, you go plant the seeds I’ll make them grow?
He told us His disciples to go preach His gospel not our own! So if I was you id stop bragging on the works you do and go read your Bibles before you go teaching others about it, when your are not following it yourselves.
Are any of us perfect? No we are not!!
I’m not but if we see our brothers heading down the wrong path it is our duty to correct them. If they don’t listen to the scriptures you offer when correcting them then move on you’ve done your job, but if you yourself are committing the same sins then go take the log out of your own eye then you can remove the splinter from his. Don’t be a hypocrite either! Now if you see this happening to your brother and you don’t correct him. You will be guilty of his blood.
So be your brothers keeper even if it means losing him. It’s better to lose them, than to lose your very soul in hell.
Here’s one last scripture you might keep in mind next time you decide to spout off all your good works:
James 4:16 – But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
Praise His Holy name Forever and ever!
