Pride & Resistance

A great post for those who claim to be a Christian but still hold to their pride in renouncing their false doctrine.

MODCONSPIRACY

“Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.”

Titus 2:15

Anyone who claims no Christian has doctrinal decree, you are in direct contradiction to the verse above. The preceding verse also gives us the premise of having to rebuke someone,

that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.

We can’t deceive ourselves in believing we are loving people when we make room for deceptive thinking that condones lawlessness, a way of life contrary to God’s standard.

“My friend, when you and I listen to the word of God, know what it says, and choose to act independently of what God says, what happens is we are expressing pride, that in spite of an omniscient all wise God telling us, “Don’t do that, here’s what I want you to do…”…

For Christians Who Don’t Want To Vote

molech-sacrifice
The statue was heated which made its hands really hot so as to fry the baby on it.

We have a candidate who wants to sacrifice unborn children up to 9 months in the womb to Molech (abortion), wants to turn America into Sodom and Gomorrah (LGBT), happy to let Muslims into this country to bring havoc like what happened to Europe, which women are being raped and men who are native citizens beaten for reasons none other than pure hatred.

sodom
American under the current administration extended

On the other hand, we have another candidate who has a foul mouth, speaks before he thinks and seems arrogant but happens to oppose the sacrificial system to Molech, abhors the detestable practices of Sodom and Gomorrah (LGBT) and wants to protect Americans from Muslims Extremists (true Muslims) like what’s happening in Europe. Trump sounds like some of the things that most of us imperfect and work-in-progress Christians struggle with today.

We only have two candidates to choose from and if you decide not to vote and the Molech, LGBT, hater of the truth, Islamic ideology sympathizer, Jezebel incarnate priestess of deception comes to power, God will hold you responsible for not trying to stop such evil.   

Trump is not a Christian but compared to Clinton, he’s a saint.

A Christian who does not want to vote because Trump has a foul mouth, lustful behavior and etc. needs to rethink their decision because we all struggle with similar sins. Imagine if it were your own moment of weakness and dirty laundry that’s caught on camera and aired on a national scale. Instead of trying to oppose the true evil who wants to destroy America and stifle the truth,  you choose to stay out of the fight. That sounds like the one who is spoken about in the Book of James 4:17 which says, 17 Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.

Are you living in rebellion to God’s will? Stop before it’s too late

saying-no

When King Saul was going after David to kill him he was doing it out of envy. King Saul was disobeying the LORD by going after the Lord’s anointed. David was anointed after Saul rejected the Word of the Lord and so God rejected him. David didn’t dare to lift a finger on God’s anointed, Saul, anointed when he was young to make him King over His people. King Saul is a picture of those who are living a life that’s contrary to God’s will. David on the other hand is a picture of Jesus Christ who continues to show you His mercy by sparing your life even though He could take it at any time because of your rebellion which we will see with the verses below.

1 Samuel 24: 3-7
3 When Saul came to the sheep pens along the road, a cave was there, and he went in to relieve himself. David and his men were staying in the back of the cave, 4 so they said to him, “Look, this is the day the Lord told you about: ‘I will hand your enemy over to you so you can do to him whatever you desire.’” Then David got up and secretly cut off the corner of Saul’s robe. 5 Afterward, David’s conscience bothered him because he had cut off the corner of Saul’s robe. 6 He said to his men, “I swear before the Lord: I would never do such a thing to my lord, the Lord’s anointed. I will never lift my hand against him, since he is the Lord’s anointed.” 7 With these words David persuaded his men, and he did not let them rise up against Saul. Then Saul left the cave and went on his way.

1 Samuel 26: 7-9,12,21
7 That night, David and Abishai came to the troops, and Saul was lying there asleep in the inner circle of the camp with his spear stuck in the ground by his head. Abner and the troops were lying around him. 8 Then Abishai said to David, “Today God has handed your enemy over to you. Let me thrust the spear through him into the ground just once. I won’t have to strike him twice!” 9 But David said to Abishai, “Don’t destroy him, for who can lift a hand against the Lord’s anointed and be blameless?”

12 So David took the spear and the water jug by Saul’s head, and they went their way. No one saw them, no one knew, and no one woke up; they all remained asleep because a deep sleep from the Lord came over them.

21 Saul responded, “I have sinned. Come back, my son David, I will never harm you again because today you considered my life precious. I have been a fool! I’ve committed a grave error.”

Remember, all those times that your life was spared or it could have ended really bad but everything turned out OK. God is trying to get your attention that you are heading deeper into sin and He wants you to repent and believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior before it’s too late like you will see with King Saul going to the point of no return. Instead of consulting the Lord with a humble spirit, he went to consult with a medium which is controlled by demons so, in reality King Saul went to consult demons.

1 Samuel 28:7-8
7 Saul then said to his servants, “Find me a woman who is a medium, so I can go and consult her.” His servants replied, “There is a woman at En-dor who is a medium.” 8 Saul disguised himself by putting on different clothes and set out with two of his men. They came to the woman at night, and Saul said, “Consult a spirit for me. Bring up for me the one I tell you.”

Stop with your unbelief in the Lord and living in continual opposition to God’s will before you’ll go too deep where there is no return for you.

Sin’s Domino Effect

 

2 Samuel 12:1-10
So the Lord sent Nathan to David. When he arrived, he said to him:
There were two men in a certain city, one rich and the other poor. 2 The rich man had a large number of sheep and cattle, 3 but the poor man had nothing except one small ewe lamb that he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up, living with him and his children. It shared his meager food and drank from his cup; it slept in his arms, and it was like a daughter to him. 4 Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man could not bring himself to take one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the poor man’s lamb and prepared it for his guest. 5 David was infuriated with the man and said to Nathan: “As the Lord lives, the man who did this deserves to die! 6 Because he has done this thing and shown no pity, he must pay four lambs for that lamb.” 7 Nathan replied to David, “You are the man! This is what the Lord God of Israel says: ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. 8 I gave your master’s house to you and your master’s wives into your arms, and I gave you the house of Israel and Judah, and if that was not enough, I would have given you even more. 9 Why then have you despised the command of the Lord by doing what I consider evil? You struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and took his wife as your own wife—you murdered him with the Ammonite’s sword. 10 Now therefore, the sword will never leave your house because you despised Me and took the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your own wife.’

domino-effect

When the leader of the household sins against the Lord he is putting his family in danger as well. God treats the family unit as a one…Let’s look at it with an illustration: The husband is driving the car with his wife and kids. He gets into a car accident for not paying attention and not only does he hurt himself but also hurts his family who’s with him in the car. To the husbands out there, remember that your sin doesn’t end with you but with your family. Don’t sin and drive.

Can your righteousness take you into heaven?

righteousness

Galatians 5:1-4

Christ has liberated us to be free. Stand firm then and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery. 2 Take note! I, Paul, tell you that if you get yourselves circumcised, Christ will not benefit you at all. 3 Again I testify to every man who gets himself circumcised that he is obligated to keep the entire law. 4 You who are trying to be justified by the law are alienated from Christ; you have fallen from grace.

Apart from Christ’s righteousness, no one can do enough good works to take him/her into heaven. We are like a rag that’s stained (sin) with nasty, dirty oil that gives off a bad smell. Imagine taking that rag to clean your car (your life).

Isaiah 64:6 All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.

You dip that rag in a bucket that contains water and soap, then you start wiping it on the filthy car to clean it. All you will do is spread the oil and dirt all over your car making it worse than when you started and making it stink even more. In the same way, by trying to keep all of God’s commands without Jesus righteousness being applied to your life by faith in Him, it will only make you self-righteous which produces pride as found in Luke 16:15, And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God.” The only thing you are accomplishing is looking worse in God’s sight and giving off a smell that’s detestable to God. Jesus didn’t die on the cross to help us to get into heaven with our good works added to it but He died because it was impossible with our good works (filthy rags) to make it into heaven where the Father reigns. Apart from Jesus crediting us with His righteousness, we cannot obtain something we don’t have to begin with, since we are born in sin. A sinner has to be punished since God is a righteous judge and if we are born that way and are guilty, how can we erase the sin in our lives let alone make up for it by living a better life? Even if you live a good life you are still guilty and must pay for your sins. Jesus alone paid for it in full at the cross by taking your punishment that you deserve upon Himself and on the third day He rose from the grave in victory.

Romans 5:8 But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!

Romans 4:25 He was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification.

2 Corinthians 5:15 And He died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the One who died for them and was raised.

2 Corinthians 5:21 He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
