I read a post on a Facebook feed this week, showing a picture of a gay-affirming church at a Nashville Pride parade, where people were holding up a banner with written letters for everyone to see with the words, “God is PROUD of you”.
Although there are many in the Pulpit who endorse this lifestyle as being something God is proud of, it is hard not to hear biblical warnings of “spiritual repercussions or consequences,” which come forth, if and when we attempt to alter what is written in Scripture. And how many of you know it is hard to give a warning and have people take you serious, when they are in the midst of ministers and laymen alike, who are encouraging, celebrating, rewarding and telling people what they are doing is fine in the eyes of God? But, is that true?
Those who know the Lord and His Word are familiar with the term “reverential fear of God” and understand, a lot of what is happening today is dangerous, not only in the natural, but in the spiritual realm as well. The question becomes, can we make God proud if we are not walking inline with His Word and can we make Him proud, if we do not move in love and restraint, regarding emotional hot button issues the enemy is using in so many different ways today?
In the article, the reason shared why we have so many problems in the world today is because people doubt God’s Word. Here is the quote and the Scripture referenced.
God never told Eve not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
God “ONLY” told Adam not to eat of the tree of good and evil or he would die. This was a private conversation between God and Adam, because Eve had not yet been created. (Gen 2:15-17)
If the serpent overheard conversations in the Garden, he would know what God said and that would give him insight on how to help him deceive Eve and have a type of control over Adam.
Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them, for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the “iniquity of the fathers” upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me, Ex 20:5 ASV
The sinful nature passed through the spirit of Adam (the father) to Eve (the mother), and then it was multiplied again to all his children.This transference is not only the spirit of life, but attributes of the spirit too, such as sinfulness or mortality. Again passing from Adam to the mother and then, to their children.
(God to Adam – Who are YOU listening to?)
The Lord Jesus would return with His Plan of Salvation and Restoration
When people get ensnared by lies and deception, they soon find themselves in a position where guilt, depression and regret for deeds done, can lead them to give up all hope and want to end it all. I am reminded of Judas when he betrayed Jesus. Could Adam have found himself in a similar mess? Could that be why he ate the fruit? (Selah) He was on self destruct?
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. James 3:1
God’s word is living and active. It is sharper than any two-edged sword and cuts as deep as the place where soul and spirit meet, the place where joints and marrow meet. God’s word judges a person’s thoughts and intentions. Hebrews 4:12 GWT
We are to use The Sword of the Spirit to bring life, not sin and death. It is our weapon of warfare, the only thing which is powerful enough to cut between the soul and the spirit, so when the enemy comes to destroy us through the weaknesses of our soul, The Holy Spirit uses it to reprove us and show us
the traps of the enemy and save our souls.
If we alter the Word of God to fit our needs or others, some of the sheep will follow, for without a responsible shepherd sheep will wander off the trail, making them easy prey for predators and wolves to come into them to rob, steal and destroy the souls of God’s People.
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
