Matthew 24:37 KJV
“But as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
We cannot in all accuracy tell you exactly how the World was in the days of Noah, but we can assume because of how God The Father had set Ordinances on How To Live, Statues on How To Live, that the World was filled with men and women that were Evil in His Sight. We know by Scripture that they were full of Fleshly Pleasure that went against God. I believe because of Scripture, because of my Relationship with Jesus, having studied His Word and Lived By His Word, that the people of Noah’s Day were so corrupted with sin that Salvation was not possible, they were Evil to the Marrow Of The Bone!
So, in this message there are certain things that we can look at, that we can weigh to see today’s Society verses Godly Living, but my main concern is how Society has come into Gods House corrupting it.
Jesus went into the Temple and chased out the Money Changers, calling them Thieves…
John 2:14-18 KJV
“14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. 18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?”
Matthew 21:12-13 KJV
“12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”
Seeing this we need to look at The Church. How many of you have Sanctioned the Sale Of Goods within your church for some event? Yet Jesus was Angry because of such acts! You can try and justify all that you want, but understand this, Jesus never told one of you to do such a thing in His House!!! That would make Him a Lunatic and His Word worthless!!!
Moving on… how many of The Church have Pastoral Boards, Committees, Elected Officials that Govern the church? That most, if not all, have made a Pastor The Head? But yet Jesus set up Offices to make sure that The Church would not be corrupted…
Ephesians 4:10-16 KJV
“10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
How many church’s are Governed By Man’s Law, by Man’s Will, not Obeying Scripture?
Moving on… how is it that the Body Of Christ, The Bride Of Jesus, have blatantly allowed the following within the Church: Woman Pastors, Woman of any Authority Over Men, having Equality between Men and Women? Yet The Scriptures, The Fathers Will, tells us that Woman are Not Equal to Men, that Women are Not to have Authority Over Men and with that being said, that the only Authority above a Man is Jesus!
1 Corinthians 11:2-3, 8-9 KJV
“2 Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered [them] to you. 3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman [is] the man; and the head of Christ [is] God. … 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.”
1 Timothy 2:12 KJV
“But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”
Society says that Men and Women are Equal, that Women can and do have Authority Over Men, but this is Not the case Within The Church!!
Moving on… how many of you Men have Long Hair as a Woman, that is touching your shoulders and beyond? How many of you Women have Short Hair as a Man, not caused by illnesses, but by choice? How many of you Men wear Women’s Clothing or you Women Men’s Clothing?
Yet Scripture tells us that there is a Separation in Identity between Men and Women.
1 Corinthians 11:14-15 KJV
“14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for [her] hair is given her for a covering.”
Deuteronomy 22:5 KJV
“The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so [are] abomination unto the LORD thy God.”
To those who would Justify, then Who Is Jesus?
Moving on… how many within The Church use False Doctrine that line up with the Will Of Man and not that of The Scriptures, saying Times Have Changed, WE Need To Change With…Society?
Yet Scripture tells us that we are to be Separated from the Sin’s Of The World…
2 Corinthians 6:14-17 KJV
“14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,”
Revelation 18:3-5 KJV
“3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
Jeremiah 23:16-18 KJV
“16 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, [and] not out of the mouth of the LORD. 17 They say still unto them that despise me, The LORD hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. 18 For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard [it]?”
Jeremiah 14:14 KJV
“Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.”
Luke 6:26 KJV
“Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.”
2 Timothy 2:16-19 KJV
“16 But shun profane [and] vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness. 17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus; 18 Who concerning the truth have erred, saying that the resurrection is past already; and overthrow the faith of some. 19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4 KJV
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Colossians 2:8 KJV
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
There are many, many more things that The Church has Accepted that go against Scripture, that The Church and the church (denominations), have allowed to become Sound Doctrine, but are of The Flesh! God The Father expects His People to be Unlike The Heathen, The Lost and nowhere is there provision to do so.
Before anyone says these two phrases, “That was Old Testament …”, “Times have Changed…”, then you do Not Understand the following Scriptures…
John 10:30 KJV
“I and [my] Father are one.”
John 5:30 KJV
“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”
Hebrews 13:8 KJV
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Understand this my Brothers and Sisters that God has not changed, His Will has not changed, His Desire has not changed, but what has changed is mans Obedience To His Word, His Will, His Desire and now has The Church taken On The Clothing Of The World and Wears It Proudly! The World is Our Enemy even as it is The Lord Jesus, they are Not Our Friends and if they are, YOU have a problem!!!
James 4:4 KJV
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
1 John 2:15 KJV
“Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
God The Father sent His Only Son Jesus to Save us from Sin, but in doing so, Jesus did not Compromise The Fathers Will, Jesus did not Change The Fathers Word, but in many senses made it even harder. We, Brothers and Sisters, cannot Compromise The Will Of Jesus to Satisfy Our Flesh, to Re-Write Gods Word to bring Justification to Our Sinful Ways, whereas many have done so. God tells us Not To Walk In The Council Of The Ungodly and the Ungodly are those who would Demand Change From The Fathers Will!!
Psalm 1:1-2 KJV
“1 Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
Jesus is coming and do you really think that His Judgment is going to Consider What The World Wants? Today is The Day to Repent, return to Jesus, to His Word Uncompromised and Live according to His Will, not The Worlds!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
One thought on “Society vs Godly Living”
A resounding AMEN to the above word…
A word given to me a short time ago…
“HE IS COMING as a refiner’s fire to purify HIS CHURCH and to take back that which is His. Too many declare “their church”, “my people”, my congregation” and assume ownership of that which is HIS inheritance on the earth. Too many refuse to be reconciled to their brother; too many fellowship with those who have a “form of godliness” but DENY the power of it! The mixture of the profane and the holy weakens His presence in our midst! Too many are walking in the ways of the world, carelessly unaware of His watchful eye. May the Lord bring forth WORDS that move us and inspire us to righteousness and godly living!
The Blind Watchman
Who fails to sound the Alarm…
“His watchmen are blind; they are all without knowledge; they are all silent dogs; they cannot bark, dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. The dogs have a mighty appetite; they never have enough. But they are shepherds who have no understanding; they have all turned to their own way, each to his own gain, one and all.”
There is a ministry in our land that does not “bark“ out the alarm of this day. They are silent, slumbering dogs with no knowledge of approaching danger. They speak soft and comforting things to fill the pews or gather people unto themselves. Their real attachment is to “their church”, their ministry, or their followers. When someone leaves, they no longer feel the responsibility of the love of God. The heart of the Great Shepherd who leaves the 99 is a foreign concept unto such.
“An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?”
God’s question to us… “what will you do when the end comes”? If the faith of many is failing to overcome the things of today, in a time of peace what will it be when the fury of the storm strikes?
It is an appalling thing when God declares of His people: “my people love to have it so”. The result of this is sobering.
“And it will be, Like people, like priest.
And I will visit their ways on them
and repay them for their deeds”
Woe to the ministers who minister His word according to the desires of the people, rather than the Words that proceed from the heart of God!
“In periods of unsettled faith, skepticism, and mere curious speculation in matters of religion, teachers of all kinds swarm like the flies in Egypt. The demand creates the supply. The hearers invite and shape their own preachers. If the people desire a calf to worship, a ministerial calf-maker is readily found”
It is encouraging to hear a godly voice in the midst of the compromise and the apathy of the hour!
