15 Minutes With Jesus / Robert Haymes
Oppressed Every One By Another
Greetings in the name of Jesus! This is Rob Haymes. This is 15 Minutes with Jesus. Wherever two or three are gathered together in My name, Jesus said, there am I in the midst of them. To those of you who love Him in truth: mercy unto you and peace and love be multiplied.
Praise your Holy Name! Thank you Lord! Praise your Holy Name! Thank you Lord! Praise your Holy Name! Praise God! Father, we thank you for this day; we thank you for this program. Blessed be God Almighty! Today’s program is called, Oppressed Every One By Another. Let’s turn to Jer 9:4-6, Everyone take heed to his neighbor, and do not trust any brother; for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slanderers. Everyone will deceive his neighbor, and will not speak the truth; they have taught their tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves to commit iniquity. Your dwelling place is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know Me, says the Lord. Isa 3:1-5, For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, the mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, the captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable. Verse 8, For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of His glory. The show of their countenance witnesses against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. Say to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of your paths.
Because iniquity shall abound in the last days, Jesus said, the love of many shall wax cold. In these days, people are indulging themselves in all kinds of evil on the internet and through the media. These things enter into their hearts, and Jesus said, Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. It is not that which goes in the mouth which defiles a man, but it is that which comes out of the mouth. Let’s turn to Mat 15:10-20, When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, Hear and understand: Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man. Then His disciples came and said to Him, Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying? But He answered and said, Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch. Then Peter answered and said to Him, Explain this parable to us. So Jesus said, Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man. Verse 18, But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. Christians are continuing to indulge in defiling things on the internet, and they enter into their hearts. Then, when we are speaking with one another, these things come out of our hearts and we oppress one another. Jesus said, If you continue in My Word, you shall be My disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free. As you continue in the Word of God and in the truth, that’s what will be in your heart. And when you come together in the Word of God with the Holy Spirit, you will be speaking things that edify one another. Mat 24:9-13, Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. Verse 10, And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. These are the days we are living in. Iniquity is abounding in the hearts of Christians because they keep on indulging in things of the world through the internet, instead of continuing in the Word of God. John 8:31-47, Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered Him, We are Abraham's descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, You will be made free? Jesus answered them, Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham's descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My Word has no place in you. I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have seen with your father. They answered and said to Him, Abraham is our father. Jesus said to them, If you were Abraham's children, you would do the works of Abraham. But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. You do the deeds of your father. Then they said to Him, We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God. Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My Word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? He who is of God hears God's Words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God. If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Let’s turn to 1 John 2:15-17, Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. Verse 15, Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. The more we indulge in the things of the world, the more our love will grow cold. The love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit. As we continue in the Word of God, however, with the Holy Spirit teaching us and leading us in doing it, we will be walking more and more in love, and when we come together, more and more love will be coming out of our hearts; out of our mouths, and we will be edifying one another. As we continue to expose ourselves to worldly, carnal, evil things, through the media on our devices, our hearts are being evil effected and hardened, in many cases, to the point of oppressing one another, and hurting one another, even hating one another, in these last days. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another.
Why should we continue in the Word of God? Heb 4:12-16, For the Word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. 2 Tim 3:16-17, All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
1 John 2:20-21, But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Verse 27, But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him. So as we continue in the Word of God, the Holy Spirit will be teaching us, revealing it to us, and as we continue in it; in doing it, we will know the truth, and the truth will make us free. Jesus said, He that practices sin is the servant of sin, and the servant does not abide in the house forever, but the Son abides forever. If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. So as you continue in the Word of God, the Son of God: Jesus, the Lamb of God, slain from the foundation of the world, will be setting you free from lies; from iniquity; from sin.
Everyone take heed to his neighbor, and do not trust any brother; for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbor will walk with slanderers. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another.
