John1:5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Many Christians today are facing the most difficult times in their lives now. The Darkness is here and the deception is staggering. The engagement between the light and darkness is here.
Ephesians6:12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wickedness is the norm of today and righteousness is eschewed by the masses. The Houses of God have been invaded by the corruption of man's ideals and man's manipulation of God's word. The rhetoric coming from today's pulpits is a pep talk of self-gratification and a deceptive encouragement toward living a lifestyle of sin.
God doesn't care! God doesn't mind! God doesn't judge wickedness!
We've had it wrong for thousands of years!
God is love and he understands our sinful lifestyles, Jesus drank wine and started the party. Don't judge me for my lifestyle I'm forgiven for my sins. I said a little prayer and I'm free of sin, there is nothing left for me to do now but live my life I'm under grace.
James 2:26For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
As a confessing believer in Jesus Christ we should be living a lifestyle that is holy and separated from the things of the world. I'm not saying to sever your ties and relationships with the people of the world but if those who live as the world does hinders your walk with the Lord than you had better watch yourself and who your keeping company with. If you want to clean up your life and you still have relationships with those who deny to live a lifestyle that is set aside for the Lord, than they will be a stumbling block to you. You must separate yourself from corruption and feed on the Word of God and join ranks with true believers.
Proverbs 27:17Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
If you’re in a church that has brought the wickedness of the world into the sanctuary to entertain the congregations and the true Word of God is distorted by these new perversions that claim to be the word of God, then you yourself have to stop making excuses and yielding to the wickedness that is going on in these churches. If you continue to keep silent to the darkness that has invaded the things of God, you will not be able to stand. You must turn off the television! You must turn off the music of the world! You must seek the Lord with all that you have and repent of these things that are not of God. Do you really think that if Jesus was with you in your home today that He would choose to sit and watch the things that you choose to view and hear????
1Peter 1:16Because it is written,Be ye holy; for I am holy.God is holy!
What makes us think that it is okay to view and do the things that we do and still call ourselves Christians, and people of God? We are mistaken and millions will be surprised on the day we stand before the Lord and he says to us “depart from me ye that work iniquity!” Many of you will refuse what I’m saying and you will be offended. We must choose to live a life to the Lord. This is why we are here, to glorify the Lord not ourselves.
Romans 6:23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The corruption of the world will bind you in a prison of darkness and without daily repentance will interrupt your communication with God.
Psalms 66:18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
I say to repent daily because we sin daily and must confess and ask forgiveness.
Romans3:10As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Romans3:23For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
1John1:9If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
We are going to make mistakes but with a daily walk in Jesus Christ and with the filling of the the Holy Ghost we can confess our sins and be cleansed from our iniquities. There is an agenda to destroy Christianity! There is an agenda to destroy God's Word! There is an agenda to lead you down a path of destruction! To the true believers out there listening right now, we are in the dark times that many Prophets and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ warned us about. We are here! From the corruption of God's Word to the doctrine of Balaam being accepted as truth and the wickedness of sin that has been welcomed by the majority.
Luke17:26And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
Luke17:28Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
That's what we do today and there is nothing wrong with planting, sewing and building but when we do it without God, and we do it for the pleasures of the flesh and the things of this life we then sew unto wickedness and our own destruction. Many Christians are under attack not only physically but mentally and spiritually. The world is getting spiritually darker every day and those who have eyes to see must get into their Arks. Get in Jesus Christ!
1 Peter 4:1-19
1Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
2That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
4Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
The world will not and cannot understand why you choose not to participate in the things that they do. So called Christians will not understand when you choose to separate yourself from the latest forms of worship and the doctrine of witchcraft that has been excepted in the churches.They see nothing wrong with many scriptures taken out of the new age bibles. They see nothing wrong with the so called Christian music and artist who look and sound like secular artist.
5Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
6For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit.
7But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.
Being sober is the shield to deflect the lies of the enemy! We should feed on the Word of God and keep in prayer!
Matthew4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
1Peter5:8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
8And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.
9Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
10As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
If our eyes and ear's and spirits are being fed by the music of the world the television programs, movies and books of mankind's ideas then we will be drunk with deception and blinded to the truth and believe the lie of Satan! Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? We must continue in prayer! If we choose not to pray it is what the enemy wants. The enemy wants to stop our communication with God!
12Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
13But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
14Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
Psalms18:5The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
The Enemy wants to sever all lines of communication to God. He has done this by aiding the church with ministers who have corrupted doctrines, bibles and witchcraft in their forms of worship. When we feel that we don't want to pray or read our bibles, this is when we must seek the Lord in prayer and in His Word!
