“Wantonness and the lust of the flesh have caused hearts to become emboldened against Me,” says the Lord. “They have encouraged themselves and made themselves confident in their defiance of my Word and the way of holiness.”
This is so true. After having divorced his wife to marry his mistress, one minister said in the middle of his sermon,
“I am going home tonight and make love to my queen, and if I am on my way to hell, I can stop and say God has surely been good to me.”
At that saying other ministers present who knew of the situation applauded and embraced this arrogance with a profound, ‘Amen.’ Truly men have encouraged their own hearts against the principles of God.
Nevertheless, my heart goes out to the other young ministers who noted the actions of one who presents himself as the apostle of Jesus Christ to be sanctioned by God, thus bringing them into co-spiritedness with heresy.
As stated earlier, hypocrisy has no regard for those who really want to please the Lord. It is ruthless and abortive. It completely aborts the eternal purpose of God in the lives of those who follow the workings of the unrighteous. When groups of ministers can come together and rally behind and applaud blatant, open sin, they have lost their way and are blind guides. They and the ones who follow them both will fall in the ditch.
I continue to hear the Lord say,
“Silence is agreement.”
We are the ambassadors of Christ. But it seems those who serve in such offices in the world have more integrity than we who serve in the name of our Lord. The ambassador for the United States of America speaks for the president of our nation. He is the president’s mouthpiece on foreign soil, just as we are Christ’s mouthpiece in this evil world. But or if another speaks those things that are not the heart and mind of our President, then it is the responsibility of the U.S. Ambassador to rehearse the truth and relay the mind of his leader. Are we to do any less? We cannot be passive when sin is pouring in and putting itself on display in the Body of Christ. We are charged to bring correction, not with lies, accusations, innuendoes, malice and hypocrisy; but with love and grace always seeking to make peace and restore righteousness.
I know by the grace of God, all will not receive those who approach them in the Spirit of God. Some will make monuments of their own lies and lying lifestyle. These monuments are placed before the people of God for worship and acceptance. Those who embrace such behavior place their own soul in danger of hell’s fire.
