The Mixture of the Holy Seed
Praise the Lord! Today’s message was very relevant and timely. I was really touched by how although we as God’s children still live in the world, we are not of the world any longer. It is easy for us to discern outright evil, but when it’s disguised, we can have a hard time finding it. Satan knows this, and this is why he works in an undercover way to trip us up and steal us away from God. This week’s message impressed the young people on how we, as the saints need to value what the Lord values and stay pure. We need to seperate ourselves from the worldly ways as Ezra did when he returned to Jerusalem. When the Israelites were joined to the people of the nations, Ezra knew how much this offended the Lord and prayed for God’s forgiveness of their sins. Ezra was willing to hear and carry out God’s word for his testimony, and we in the New Age can too. Now, in this age, God’s people are again intermingled with the people of the nations, and we need to seperate. How do we do this? When we turn to God’s Word we are able to find Him again and denounce the Devil. We can be God’s testimony and his expression. I was also touched by how in the Lord’s recovery, we want to purify ourselves and seek the Lord, because we can’t love the Lord and the world. Because we love God, we can turn to Him by coming to His pure Word and getting washed and cleansed. Amen!

Jeremiah 10:3-4 For the customs of the peoples are vanity, because their god is a tree cut from the forest, the work of the hands of a craftsman with an ax. He adorns it with silver and
with gold; they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it cannot totter.
