    Cool Are You Lukewarm

    Lukewarm (Passive)(Faith only)

    Rev 3:15-16
    15 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
    16 "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
    1Thes 5:1-8
    1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.
    2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.
    3 For when they say, "Peace and safety!" then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
    4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
    5 You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
    6 Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.
    7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
    8 But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.
    Matt 24:37-44
    37 "But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
    38 "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,
    39 "and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
    40 "Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left.
    41 "Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left.
    42 "Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.
    43 "But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
    44 "Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
    Matt 24:45-51
    45 "Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season?
    46 "Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing.
    47 "Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.
    48 "But if that evil servant says in his heart, 'My master is delaying his coming,'
    49 "and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,
    50 "the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of,
    51 "and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    (NKJ)

    xxx If you become passive and dont think you have anything else to do or to learn you have become lukewarm. If you think its ok to just let others run things when you know their wrong, that is lukewarm. Jesus is going to drop you as a follower. When you put all your faith in a preacher dont forget that preacher is a sinner.

    Rom 14:22
    22 Do you have faith? Have it to yourself before God. Happy is he who does not condemn himself in what he approves.

    HUNGER & THIRST
    (JESUS IS THE NEW TESTAMENT)
    Heb 2:1
    1 Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.
    Matt 5:6
    6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.
    John 6:35
    35 And Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
    John 6:48-50
    48 "I am the bread of life.
    49 "Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
    50 "This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die.
    John 6:55-57
    55 "For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.
    56 "He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
    57 "As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.
    II Jn 1:9-10
    9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.
    10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him;
    I Jn 5:12
    12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
    1 Cor 11:27-31
    27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
    28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
    29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
    30 For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
    31 For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.
    Matt 14:14-23
    14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.
    15 When it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food."
    16 But Jesus said to them, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
    17 And they said to Him, "We have here only five loaves and two fish."
    18 He said, "Bring them here to Me."
    19 Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes.
    20 So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.
    21 Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
    22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.
    23 And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.
    Rev 3:15-16
    15 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.
    16 "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
    Matt 14:31
    31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, "O you of little faith, why did you doubt?"
    Mark 11:23
    23 "For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will come to pass, he will have whatever he says.
    2 Cor 10:4-5
    4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,
    5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
    2 Tim 2:14-16
    14 Remind them of these things, charging them before the Lord not to strive about words to no profit, to the ruin of the hearers.
    15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
    16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.
    (NKJ)
    xxx When a person is hungry or thirsty there is only one way to satisfy it. By eating food or drinking water. That is the same for hungry and thirsty for righteousness. The only way to satisfy it is Jesus Christ in the new testament.
