WHO ARE YOU LISTENING TO?
There are thoughts, that tell you, your just fine the way you are. That God is not mad at you, that grace is sufficient. But I always look at subliminal messages, and what they don’t say as well.
You see, these kind of messages, do not challenge you to grow. They do not challenge you, to be the best you can be in Christ. They do not help you, or motivate you to go for the highest prize in Christ. In fact, some of them, make you think once saved always saved. Not if you sin. Without repentance. There goes the lack of fear of God, and we are called to fear God. I am not going to sugar coat this.
They make Christians lazy to be honest. Some of these messages are from high profile ministries, and the body of Christ accepts this. Not knowing the difference.
You need to know the difference! You need to know what Gods Holy word says. You cannot leave your salvation, in the ways of religion. Or people, who are apt to sin themselves. You have to grow, with Christ!
Sin is sin, not just “moral failure.” It needs to be said, it needs to go to the root of it, and call it for what it is, and let the true blood of Jesus cover it!
And we have so much to do, and to achieve in Christ. Unless a Christian changes His thinking, it will be “stinking thinking.” We are called to have the mind of Christ.
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that He may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. I Corinthians 2:16.
Yes one moment you accepted Christ, yes, He put clean clothes of righteousness on you, but if you turn around, and put that dirty garment back on, your right where you started. Sin will do that, and many do not talk about sin, but we do need to know it separates us, from God. Thinking has to change. Sin, It can remove or blot out your salvation.
Folks, don’t accept these flaky messages, that do not cause you to grow. Remember we are on a vine, and with Christ we do grow. But without Him we cannot, and He is a holy God. He does not accept sin, He takes it away! But we have to ask.
This is how we get rid of the devil by repenting to God by Jesus Christ! Because if you do not he has every legal right to be there! Plead the blood of Jesus and repent!
Even if you thought you did good. Did you know, your righteousness will be forgotten, if you have sinned again without repentance? Did you know, this scripture?
WHEN I SHALL SAY TO THE RIGHTEOUS, THAT HE SHALL SURELY LIVE; IF HE TRUST TO HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMIT INIQUITY, ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE REMEMBERED; BUT FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HATH COMMIT, HE SHALL DIE FOR IT. Ezekiel 33:13.
King James Bible, the only Bible, I use and recommend for pure thoughts, not changed, not corrupted.
