“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.”
One thing in clarification here, The Doctrine that is referred to above, is the Pure Word Of God, Uncorrupted, Unchanged…until…
Brothers and Sisters WHERE is the Church Government? Brothers and Sisters WHERE is the True Word Of God? We are to be a Self-Governing People, having the Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher as The Offices that make sure All Things within The Church are Correct, according to Jesus through The Holy Spirit. But, WHERE are the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists and Teachers? They have been Removed by the Adversary, by Satan, to make sure that The Church would fall.
We need to understand that The Word has NEVER CHANGED…it IS NOT GOING TO!!!
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
So then, if The Word Never Changes, then what has? Based on the First Scripture, you, church, have done the opposite. Instead of casting out those who are contrary to The Doctrine, that is, The Word Of God, YOU have Embraced Sin to enter in, with the excuse, “it is up to the “Leadership” to get them saved”. This, is a Deception from Satan that The People Of God have WILLINGLY Accepted. Do you not understand that Our Lives Reflect Whom Jesus Is Within Us? That it is Our Testimony that brings forth the opportunity for Salvation?
The House Of God…Is YOU! The Church is All Of Us who have been Washed By The Blood Of Jesus!! The Church Building is Our Sanctuary to Learn, to Worship, to Praise Our God who Loves Us!!!
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
1 Corinthians 3:16
You have been taught, to Mind Your Own Business, keeping to one’s self, not to Judge less you Be Judged, forsaking the Greater of this command. That, if you, my Brothers and Sisters, examine yourself first, finding those things that are against The Word Of God, against The Holy Spirit and be rid of such things, then, THEN you can Properly Know those things which are Contrary To God, rising against such things, both within The Church and the World.
“1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.”
Most people do not finish this commandment, they stop at “Judge not, that ye be not judged”, you blind guides!!! If WE are Changing from what we were into what we should be, then there is No Fear in Judgement, for the Judgement has already Changed You and in that Change, you are able to see clearly the effects of sin, rising against such things!!!
But too many of you have your Minds Seared with Untruthful things, that, there are Scriptures that are not taught correctly or not taught at all, leading you down a path of ignorance! Now, there are those within the Body, that say well that is a matter of Opinion… Read this…
“15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. 16 But if he will not hear [thee, then] take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. 17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell [it] unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.”
The “trespass against thee” is against The Word that Abides in one’s self and it is even to Life Styles. We, my Brothers and Sisters, are to be Alike in Word and Deed, that when the World sees one they see the Whole, that there is No Exceptions to one or the other among The Brethren! Why do you think that Jesus said, “The Father and I ARE ONE…”, it is because they are One in both Word and Deed, that when you see the One, you also see the Other, you cannot see No Difference Between The Two!!!
Consider the following…
“1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.”
1 Corinthians 6:1-6
My Brothers and Sisters, do you not understand that the Judgement is both Spiritual and Physical, that is, we are to be…Our Brothers Keeper. We are to Look at one another, keeping The Faith, keeping The Doctrine that WE ALL WALK without being Judged Of The World or in The Fear Of The Judgement Of Jesus!!!
Too many of you Fear Man above Fearing God, too many of you cry out “Peace”, when there is No Peace in this day, for we are as sheep, slaughtered as being ignorant about The Word. You have become Moveable According To The Will Of Society, having Society Being Your God!!! We are to Stand, Unmovable, casting out those who Live In Sin, having No Part With Them!
“9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators: 10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.”
1 Corinthians 5:9-13
Now, there are those among you that do not understand the Love The Father has for His Creation. That, He, Sending His Son, Jesus, to die in our place so that The Word Judges Us Not, Because of The Blood Covering Our Sins, and not so that we can go Sin!!!
Paul, our Brother, put it this way, that because we are Living By Grace, that is, we are not Judged because of The Blood Of Jesus, that we should not Abuse this grace, that we should Not Walk In Sin, that, more so, we should Walk In Newness’ Of Life, Proclaiming The Blessing of Grace we have been given, that others may come to that knowledge!
“1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? 3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
Now have this understanding among you, the Judgement, is To The Man, To The Woman, To The Children, in other words, WE ARE ALL TO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE SAME RULE. With that being said, Men, Husbands, BE the Men Of God, Unmovable, Unmoved by False Doctrine, Unstained by The World, leading your Homes in All Godliness. Women, Wives, be Vigilant to Obey Jesus above all things, Obeying Your Husbands In All Things, giving no place to Satan, being Chaste Women in Society, Godly, not Busy Bodies of Gossip. Children, Obey, both Your Dads and Your Moms, for you have received the First Promise, given to you a Long Life in doing so, being Representatives Of Your Faith, Your Family, without Blemish!!!
We have been given Grace, that WE may Live Godly Lives, Holy Acceptable To The Father, Through The Blood Of Jesus, but do not think of yourselves High Minded, for even as The Natural Branches were cast aside for a time, do not think that we can’t also be Cast Off…Forever!
“19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in. 20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21 For if God spared not the natural branches, [take heed] lest he also spare not thee.”
Let those who Live In Sin; be not accounted among you, for We are Cleansed, if We Abide In The Word, Walking In Grace knowing The Mercy Of The Father, In His Son Jesus. So, how much Sin, Corruption, and Disobedience does it take…
“6 Your glorying [is] not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.”
1 Corinthians 5:6-8
If you look at The Body Of Jesus as The Lump…How much Sin, Corruption and Disobedience does it take to become a Whole Body that is Living In Sin, Corruption and Disobedience? It is past time for The Church to rise up and cast out Sin, to cast those from among you that Live In Sin, not willing to change, but are trying to Change You Into Acceptance Of Their Sin!!!
The Scriptures tell us that Judgement Will Begin In The House Of God First…What do you think is being Judged? It is Our Lives According To The Word, when they are put on a Scale, the Balance should be a Just Weight, an Even Balance between You and The Word Of God, with no variance.
Does this mean that we are Perfect in all things…NO! For as long as we live on this Earth, in these bodies, there will always be a conflict between The Spirit Of God and The Flesh but we must Fight each passing moment to be Holy, to be Acceptable Before God. We know that those before us fought this same battle, but did not succumb to the falling away into a Sinful Life Again nor did they Live In Sin Willingly, but, By Grace!!!
“13 Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good. 17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which is good I find not. 19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”
“8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle [you]. 11 To him [be] glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.”
1 Peter 5:8-11
Be not Friends with those who choose to Walk In Sin, to those who Walk After The World, who Refuse To Change into the Glory Of God, but choose a Fleshly Life, Dishonorable, Disobedient to Jesus Our Lord and Savior!!!
“17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. 18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, [that they are] the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 Whose end [is] destruction, whose God [is their] belly, and [whose] glory [is] in their shame, who mind earthly things.) 20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
We, are To BE a Royal Priesthood, a Peculiar People notwithstanding sin, but being overcomers, setting an example that We Have Been Washed, By, The Grace Of The Father!!!
Who is Marked…
Friend or Foe…
In Your Life…In The Church!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
2 thoughts on “Mark Them That Do Not Abide”
John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment. (ie When you give people the Word of God, scripture, not your own words, that’s not judging.)
Do you not know that we, the Saints, will Judge the Angels and that we are to Judge All Spiritual Matters that touch our Lives? Do not the Scriptures tell us that first Remove the Beam from our own eyes first so that we help those that can not see clearly? Did not James tell us that By Our Works they will know Our Faith? Our Words must Line Up with Scripture and if so, then Judgement is already in the mist!
