There are spiritual dangers, when people, and yes Christians, do not see sin, and call it for what it is, and for whatever reasons, whether it is being politically correct, or rebellion, or even a lack of knowledge, they are setting themselves up for a fall. A big fall!
And they defend sin, and call it “judging”, and they do not see the warnings from God, and yes other Christians, who stand up for truth.
The reason, I say, “so called” Christians, is because lately, I see a strong trend, of those who say and claim they are Christians, and they believe in God, but they are disobedient to God, and His Holy word, and they are actually rebellious, and defend the lies from the devil.
To me these type of people, have become pawns for the devil. And people do not even see it. They do not see the deception, or the disobedience, to God, and they are actually striving against the truth. They are striving, and fighting against other Christians.
I see it more then ever, and I see, the deception. I guess it is a strong sign of the end of times. I see how many, are twisting and taking the gospel, and ignoring it. Or the watered versions, of gospel, they are using, is so taken out of context, that they have no true foundation, to stand on.
I see it from the top! Prominent “so called” Christian leaders, who may have a sense of sin. And they curse, with scripture, but its not what God really says. According to King James scripture.
Or those again, who defend sin, and attack those who stand on the true word of God. Its a mess out there! And God, must shake His head, at those who could be doing good for the Kingdom of God, but they have no true moral compass, or a sense of what pleases God, and what does not! And because of that, they are in spiritual danger.
I have been in more battles, with “so called” Christians lately, that my concern has really taken a shift, to see this and call it for what it is! Because more “so called” Christians, are being called from the devil! To defy holy word, to attack other brothers and sisters in Christ, and they are lining up, with their rhetoric, that is part truth, and part lie. They are pawns of satan. And maybe calling them this, they will see the deception and repent! And maybe throw away their pride, and apologize, so God truly can bless them. Yes I hope the person, who did this to me reads this.
For they are being used by the enemy. Twisting scriptures. Yesterday, I got such a response as this. As a “friend” on FB, attacked my post, where a church, was compromising biblical truths, and principles, and taking the stance, that in this changing society, we as Christians, need to change our stance, to be more friendly, and more politically correct. And I called that garbage! And I called it for what it is, we are to “come out from among them.”
We are not to stop and change, our stance! Sin is sin. Yes, we are called to love the sinner, but we are called to hate the sin. And with that we are to warn others, and that is what I did. I was not judging anyone in particular, but I was judging the “sin” of this pastor, and the church, he represents.
But instead, what I got from this “so called” friend, and Christian, that we are to love one another, and to not throw stones! And judging, would come down on any one who does that! Excuse me, I am loyal to what God says! We are called to judge righteously. See John 7:24 from a King James.
And thats the whole problem, with many “so called” Christians, that they do not see what God says, and they are in disobedience. And if you throw a stone at me, I will not just take it! Don’t be surprised, if I throw it back.
Because I do actually hate sin. I may love the sinner, but I hate sin, and I see how it steals from any one of us.
If any one challenges me, they better have King James scriptures, to back it up. Because you cannot take part scripture, no matter how true it is, and make it try to look like I am the bad judgmental Christian, because you cannot see the deception and yes, the lies of sin. And that is what the devil wants to do. I will show you what God says! I will use my true sword of truth!
And I warn others to use a King James bible, and many do not see it as well, and they think you are judging them. But yet, I am telling them what God says, do not change, add or delete word. And I am warning them they have rubber swords, but if a person, wants to disobey God, I can only try so much.
I am glad, I know scripture, I am glad I know truth, because I know what pleases God, and I will be loyal to that!
I am actually irked this morning, as I write this, because I see so many “so called” Christians, and if they know truth, they do not stand for it. They are silent. And if they know part truth, they take that part, and distort it, and actually come against the agenda of God. What is God going to tell you when you stand in front of God?
God says, KNOW YE NOT THAT THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? BE NOT DECEIVED; NEITHER FORNICATIORS, NOR IDOLATERS, NOR ADULTERERS, NOR EFFEMINATE, NOR ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND. I CORINTHIANS 6:9.
And as an added thought, concerning the conversation I had with this person who was defending sin, homosexual sin. This is what God also says concerning it, in the church.
THERE SHALL BE NO WHORE OF THE DAUGHTERS OF ISRAEL, NOR A SODOMITE OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL. THOU SHALT NOT BRING THE HIRE OF A WHORE, OR THE PRICE OF A DOG, INTO THE HOUSE OF THE LORD THY GOD FOR ANY VOW: FOR EVEN BOTH THESE ARE ABOMINATION UNTO THE LORD THY GOD. Deuteronomy 23:17-18.
And for the sake of clarification, homosexual, is not in the King James bible, and the word sodomite is the same as a homosexual. The word homosexual is a modern word.
Look I don’t understand the nature of this sin. Why some think they are born that way. But it is a curse. And it is a sin, and you have to get to the root of sin, and repent, and give it to Christ to cleanse someone. But enabling sin, and defending it, is wrong.
And I don’t hate people, but I do hate the sin. I see, and hear so many reports, of people, victimized, by sin. Innocent children. Babies abused. By even the nature of this. For it repeats itself. Over, and over again. And if I could show people to beware of sin, and not accept it. Not enable others as well, by defending it, maybe, someone could be free. But to promote it, to allow it, and to accept it, when God says be free, be clean, and come out of that. And of all places by a pastor, and the church he represents. He is a wolf in sheeps clothing. Well, there is a chance for change. And this is where I got challenged. Because we all have the choice. We all have to obey, or disobey. And I will obey God. And call it sin!
WHEREFORE COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM, AND BE YE SEPARATE, SAITH THE LORD, AND TOUCH NOT THE UNCLEAN THING: AND I WILL RECEIVE YOU, AND WILL BE A FATHER UNTO YOU, AND YE SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS , SAITH THE LORD ALMIGHTY. II Corinthians 6:17-18,
Don’t they see, they will not be blessed? Don’t they see, that you have to trust God, and obey Him? Don’t they see, the spiritual dangers of this? God says, submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee. But no, they start fighting with other Christians, and calling it judging, when all I really was doing is warning my brothers and sisters in Christ. And yes other Christians who are in the true word, see this. And they face this same dilemma.
Yes warning them. Not judging them. I have had enough sin in my own life, to scream and tell my brothers and sisters, watch out for the deception. Stay away from the fire! You will get burned! Watch out for the lies from the enemy. I have had these kind of battles, because I cannot fathom, why Christians, who know the truth, cannot see the deception in defending these lies. I tell many of them REPENT!
I have had my methods challenged, I have been told, they did not like my style! Well too bad, because I will be obedient to God, and you don’t like it, thats your problem, my loyalties are to God first.
Because you are not seeing the whole picture. You are being deceived. When any one comes against the word of God, and will deny it and defy it, yes they are in spiritual danger. This is disobedience.
More then they know. For God is not mocked. And the fear of God, that I talk about should be evident in all of us. And more specifically that is in my King James bible says ‘FEAR GOD”!
God has that power to throw many into hell. Salvation is not secure, when you disobey God! And yes folks this is scriptural. Read Revelation 22:18-19 from a King where it talks about changing Gods Holy word, one can be denied access to the Holy city.
And Read Ezekiel 3 and Ezekiel 33, where we are called to warn one another! Because a righteous person, will die, if they disobey! Remember Christ is the way, the truth, and life. John 14:6. But if one is in sin, and does not repent, they lose their gift of salvation. They lose their way to the Kingdom of God. No ifs, buts or maybes. Sin will separate you from God.
So yes, I do love, but my love has to be God first. It cannot be compromised, and it cannot give place to the enemy.
But no, many of these people will not admit this, due to their pride. They will not repent, let alone apologize to someone who knows truth, and they want to make a person an outcast. They will not admit the error of their ways, so they can grow. So they can be cleansed truly, and their garments white. They want God, but they do not want to trust Him, and obey Him.
Well I will trust and obey! And I pray to be a true voice for Christ, because I know now the difference!
SHE OBEYED NOT THE VOICE: SHE RECEIVED NOT CORRECTION; SHE TRUSTED NOT IN THE LORD; SHE DREW NOT NEAR TO HER GOD. Zephaniah 3:2.
No wonder Christ told us, they would throw us out of the churches. No wonder, He said we would be hated. No wonder….
Well, to each their own. You can tell people, truth. But if they do not receive it. I shake the dust off.
Recently, I wrote I am not as gracious as I used to be. And only when Christ prompts me to be courteous I will. But I will not let someone, take the love I have for God in obedience, and stomp on the truth that saved me. The sacrifice of Christ was too great. I will speak up!
And first I will say, why are you becoming a pawn for the devil? In fighting me. Because you are fighting God. And HE never loses a fight…..
Please Note: I just said a prayer, frustrated, and God gave me this scripture as I asked for encouragement. So I am adding it here…Don’t think He will not take His wrath. He will.
AND I WILL PERSECUTE THEM WITH THE SWORD, WITH THE FAMINE, AND WITH THE PESTILENCE, AND WILL DELIVER THEM TO BE REMOVED TO ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE EARTH, TO BE A CURSE, AND AN ASTONISHMENT, AND AN HISSING, AND A REPROACH AMONG ALL THE NATIONS, WHITHER I HAVE DRIVEN THEM: BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT HEARKENED TO MY WORDS, SAITH THE LORD, WHICH SENT UNTO THEM BY MY SERVANTS THE PROPHETS, RISING UP EARLY AND SENDING THEM; BUT YE WOULD NOT HEAR, SAITH THE LORD. JEREMIAH 29:18-19.
