The Polarizing Effect Of Truth

34 Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn
‘a man against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
36 A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.’ 37 Anyone who loves his father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me -Matthew 10:34-37 BS

I would like to take this opportunity to tackle two issues that I, as a believer in Jesus Christ have come across in the past. Some professing Christians are living in a way that is displeasing to God, thinking that they are doing God’s will.

The first issue I have seen on the internet is someone living two different lives. A Christian cannot have one foot in the world—living like an unregenerate person—and the other foot in Christ. The Bible calls that type of person lukewarm.

15 I know your deeds; you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other! 16 So because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to vomit you out of My mouth! -Revelation 3:15-16 BSB

For example, let’s look at a person who went around to Christian sites, attacking them by using a fake name called Polarius.

A Christian used the name Polarius to act out his hatred toward the Evangelical Community because of their conservative stance and its values, which are closer to biblical views than the alternative. I have no animosity toward the Polarius character. My heart is for that person to repent and get right with the Lord Jesus Christ before the rapture of our great God and Savior occurs to bring the saints to Himself. I believe the culture took hold of this person’s heart, confused him, and pushed him away from the gospel of Jesus Christ. If a person truly has the Holy Spirit, repentance will take place.

The second issue is not taking a stand for the truth because of the fear of people. Being like that will cause you to walk the Christian life backward. They seem to be ashamed of defending God’s Word, but we must understand that those who compromise the truth of God’s Word are no different from those who reject Jesus Christ. The Scripture demands us to confront those in error and defend the holy Scripture, as stated in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 & Jude 1:3.

If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in His Father’s glory with the holy angels. -Mark 8:38 BSB

Not Even A Single Hair Will Be Lost For Those That Love God

26 Then Nebuchadnezzar approached the door of the blazing fiery furnace and called out, “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out!” So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego came out of the fire, 27 and when the satraps, prefects, governors, and royal advisers had gathered around, they saw that the fire had no effect on the bodies of these men. Not a hair of their heads was singed, their robes were unaffected, and there was no smell of fire on them.

Daniel 3:26-27 BSB

Daniel’s three friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, refused to worship what the king of Babylon had made. They stayed faithful to the LORD, and they’d rather die than compromise their faith in the true Living God. Not only did God spare them from being burned, but even their hairs were kept from the fire. I want to bring to your attention their hair not being singed or touched by the fire. Through the Bible, it has great significance. Let’s look at other verses with the same message of God not allowing one’s hair to be touched.

16 You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and some of you will be put to death. 17 And you will be hated by everyone because of My name. 18 Yet not even a hair of your head will perish. 19 By your patient endurance you will gain your souls.

Luke 21:16-19 BSB

Jesus in Luke says that some will be killed but not even a single hair from their heads will perish. What Jesus is saying here is that the lives of His children are so precious in His sight that everything about them means a lot to Him. Even, the insignificant part about us, our hair, God will protect, meaning that if in this world we lose our life, we will gain eternal life when we reopen them again in His presence. The hair is emphasized to express from the Lord a deep love for those who have given their hearts and minds to Jesus. To look at one more place where one’s hair is mentioned is in Matthew 10.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Matthew 10:29-31 BSB

Jesus in Matthew 10:30 says that He knows how many hairs you have on your head. Mind you, many of us lose strands of hair daily, so that means that Jesus continues to know the number of hairs that stay on our heads until some fall off again. What is Jesus trying to say? It shows that Jesus cares about you so much that even the things that don’t have importance, Jesus also cares about them. Every aspect of your life means a lot to Jesus. 

Whatever you are going through, it doesn’t matter if you think it’s small, and you might feel that you can’t bring your concerns to Him. According to the Scriptures, He cares for you more than you think.

Is God More Important Than Your Well Being?

4 “Skin for skin!” Satan replied. “A man will give up all he owns in exchange for his life. 5 But stretch out Your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse You to Your face.”

Job 2:4-5 BSB

One of the ways that Satan gets people to deny Jesus Christ is by attacking their health. He will make them believe that their health is in danger, to make them take a jab, which in reality, will make them sick or will even bring their death. His scare tactic works so well that he has gotten almost the world to take a deadly “poke” that introduces parasites into the human body. Not only that, but without it, you can’t buy or sell.

This V product closely resembles—the mark of the beast, which puts those who received the jab out of fear, at a higher risk—if they go through the Great Tribulation—to receive the mark of the beast on their right hand or forehead.

I say this because if you got the jab so you won’t lose your job, how much more, you will get the mark of the beast, not only because it will take your job away, but also your life. Many Christians at that time will get their heads cut off for refusing the mark of the Antichrist. They will go hungry, be homeless, lose all their friends and even their families. What’s more important to you? Jesus or your job? Your call.
