There is no doubt nor question that we have entered into perilous times, times hard to deal with one translation says. Years ago, the Lord told me that deception was coming and to teach the people to depend on Him for everything. I did not fully understand what the Lord was warning me about at first but I do now. I often wonder what the apostle Paul would do if he could visit the “modern” church. In Paul’s day he turned a man over to satan for the destruction of the flesh because he had his father’s wife.
What would Paul do to the seeker friendly churches that celebrate and bless same sex unions? My Bible says Jesus is the head of the church, not men. We cannot alter God’s Word to accommodate the lusts of our flesh.
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts they shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.
No matter what manner of perversion a man wants to practice, he can find a preacher that will justify him. I now understand the Scripture that says a man will deceive his own heart. Deceit can be hidden for only so long and then judgement exposes the sin and the sinner. Hold fast to sound doctrine, you will never regret it.
Jesus Redeemed me from the curse, no poverty, no lack in my house.
Wealth and riches in my home, the devil is rebuked for my sake.
Father daily loads me with benefits, He takes pleasure in my increase.
I love being redeemed,
and I give my Lord all the glory.
We are about to embark on the greatest adventure and outpouring of God’s Spirit! This month the Holy Spirit is asking us to examine ourselves/take inventory so as God’s Vessels we can take our part and place in the Body of Christ!
Scriptures to meditate on:
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Psalm 26:4 Lord you can scrutinize me. Refine my heart and probe my every thought. Put me to the test and you will find it is true.
2 Cor 10:6 It is written, and having a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
1 Peter 4:17 For judgement begins at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Psalm 139: 23, 24 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me of unbelief and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Timothy 2:4 No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of (civilian) life: his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him (God)! DO ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
