Daily Bread 7-7-17
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable: there is none that doth good, no, not one.
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
ref. - Ps 36:1- The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.
When a parent spends more time trying to become a friend to their children than a parent, pretty soon the child will no longer see them as an authority figure but a comrade. It will be harder and harder to correct or to shape and mold the child because there is no fear of repercussion or consequences from their actions. Today, we no longer see God as someone to fear but have painted a picture of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost as someone who will stand beside us and just clean up our messes every time we create them. Worldly ministers with their mouths wide open tell us what we would like to be true instead of what is really true. This is the nature of man and it is taught us from our birth up. But when the Spirit of God is truly in a man, he will give us the truth. Truth be told, God does not accept our failure, neither does he just ignore it and wait for us to return. He is a vengeful God that expects us to be the lambs he created. The only way that we still survive today is because of Jesus Christ. But when it comes right down to it, if he had to choose, he is on the side of God. This scripture today tells us of a people that had been given all, but they chose to follow their own path. They followed an old path(the Laws of Moses) that had become unprofitable when a new path was shown to them(Jesus Christ) . There was deceit, which there is now. There was false teaching, which now surrounds what is called the Church. They were easy to fight and bicker, look around, it is there. They take great pride in the misery of their brothers, no love between brothers. Yes, once again, occurring all around us. All because somehow we think that God is going to stand around and watch his now chosen people(the Gentiles, us) self destruct from the inside out. What not one person realizes is how easy it would be for him to take it all away from us and pass it to the next who will accept it and follow the peace which he has created for us. The battle is between good and evil, between good Spirits within us and bad Spirits that are trying to enter. But we go about too worried about the other and acting like foolish children. Causing dissension, separation, division, and war amongst the brethren. All with no fear of what God could do in the twinkling of an eye. He did it to his own flesh and blood, why do we think he will not punish us? Why don't we wake up and seek for his Spirit instead of following the Spirits of the world? Mainly because there are no longer true ministers who will stand alone and speak the truth. Most want to belong to a big group of comrades, compromising the truth so that they can be a part of the "good old boys club". This is what ministers are doing and this is what the people are following. Not that they don't know the truth. But because it is an earthly need to be surrounded by friends and to be told things that make them feel good instead of the truth. It is similar to the child that gets the same trophy for participation that the winner of the race gets. It is easier, it is more fun, less work, and they get the same reward. But at the end of the day, they still have no idea how to run the race to how to persevere and win. Today's so called Christian is the same. Never receiving instruction or correction, not working their souls and the gifts that God has given. Not even making an effort to become obedient to the actual scripture, but being promised the same reward at the finish line. Well, let me tell you this, brothers, there will be many who stand before God one day and tell him that they have done the work and that they have finished their race and he will turn them away. It is the truth, it is written, and he will do what he says he will do as he cannot lie. God will avenge those who know how to follow him but choose a different path. He will also cast those who are false teachers and worldly ministers(they that minister or take care of the ways of the world and not spiritual things) in to the fiery pits of hell. This is not a man trying to scare others, this is the Spirit of God giving us a promise. We must either submit to the ways of the Lord and be granted eternal life, or submit to the ways of the world, without fear of God in our hearts, and be cast into the lake of eternal fire. You will spend eternity somewhere, what is your destination? God and God alone will be your judge at that time. Best listen up to the truth and let it set you free, before the chains become so string that you cannot break loose. Have a great day!!!
