Are you a “rebel rouser” rather than a servant of God?

Do you ruminate upon the spiritual needs of others in “conversation” with God?

Do you believe in all you hear and see in this world?

The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going. (Proverbs 14:15 KJV)

It has been said many times and many ways that a fool believes everything he hears.  Those who are discerning or sensitive to what they hear and read test it and break it down according to truth; not the truth according to the world but the Truth of God’s Word.

Is your physical body ill unto death or spiritually alive unto life forever?

Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. (Isaiah 1:5-6 KJV)
