Praise the Lord Saints.
It’s incredibly amazing to me how the world can think that they can just completely change everything God put in place and think that everyone has to accept it INCLUDING God.
The world has lost its God conscience. They don’t believe God IS who He said He is and that He will do what He said He would with regards to sin, unrighteousness, ungodliness, and wickedness. Notice I didn’t say it was wrong what they do, these are just the terms I chose to use because they are the ones Jesus use.
Some say that God made a mistake and gave them the wrong body parts; some say that God wasn’t clear enough on the marriage thing so they want the Supreme Court to decide; some men of God say God only told them to preach on one particular subject matter and the rest well, that’s for some other preacher.
You have to laugh sometimes, but believe it or not, God gave us the prophecy that this was going to happen. It’s just that some of us forgot about it.
Here are the scriptures God gave me and I used to preach and teach on this past Sunday.
This should give you the peace of mind and clarity so that you don’t continue to try to make sense of it.
2 Thessalonians 2 English Standard Version (ESV)
2 Now concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered together to him, we ask you, brothers,[a] 2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,… 9 The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, 10 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
1 Timothy 4 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared.
Luke 8 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 And when a great crowd was gathering and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable, 5 “A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell along the path and was trampled underfoot, and the birds of the air devoured it. 6 And some fell on the rock, and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up with it and choked it. 8 And some fell into good soil and grew and yielded a hundredfold.” As he said these things, he called out, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”9 And when his disciples asked him what this parable meant, 10 he said, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that ‘seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’
11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. 13 And the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. But these have no root; they believe for a while, and in time of testing fall away. 14 And as for what fell among the thorns, they are those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. 15 As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.
Once I finished preaching this message it became Claritin clear that this is just prophecy being fulfilled and while it’s a sad thing understand this last passage;
Revelation 22 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. 11 Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do right, and the holy still be holy.” 12 “Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
