It has been some time since I felt the leading from the Lord to write an article. This is certainly not the Lord being slack as we understand slackness but rather the circumstances of life that has had me quit busy. I have always enjoyed writing and putting the thoughts of my heart in reading format. So without hesitation let me share.

 

So many in Christendom have cleaved to Biblical ignorance as if it was a desired possession. The Bible says that His people perish without a vision or better translated, revelation! So let us be wise and not settle for self imposed ignorance! The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me all day concerning the days in which we find ourselves. The breath taking moral decline of America has many Christians wondering what is going on and how we got in the septic tank with worldlings who think evil is good and good is evil.

 

Let us look at Truth from the Old Testament and confirm it with New Testament Theology. First I will establish a plum-line that will measure what I am about to expound and keep us on the straight and narrow. Paul the Apostle will set the line very clearly for the rest of this article.

 

“1Timothy 4:1 ¶ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter

times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits,

and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their

conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding

to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with

thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every

creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused,

if it be received with thanksgiving:

5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”

 

The latter times is upon us and the days of folks departing from the faith is increasing as we speak. The seducing spirit of uncleanness and moral bankruptcy is a predominant force of evil in our day with no end in sight. Doctrines of devils has seared people from feeling any brokenness over sin. It is almost to the point of boiling over and no-one seems to care about offending God! I am speaking of you dear reader who is more than likely a professing Christian. Let me remind you that the devil knows how to quote Scripture! Does it break your heart when you sin? Do you weep over the wretchedness that is still within you? Or have you been seduced by the worlds evil influence that nothing causes you to be broken before the Holy God who Created you in His Image? Harsh questions? Not so much. Let us now proceed the the Old Testament.

 

Genesis 6:5 “The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth

had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was

only evil all the time. 6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man

on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 7 So the LORD said,

“I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth

men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds

of the air– for I am grieved that I have made them.”

 

You see in this Inspired text God was “grieved” to the point that His “heart” was filled with pain! Why? Because every inclination of the thoughts of man was evil all the time. Men had no brokenness. No remorse! No thought of loving their Creator! No thought of loving one another! They were calling evil good and good evil I am certain of that truth! So if God’s heart was broken and filled with pain because of wickedness, shouldn’t ours? When the Holy Creator saw the wickedness and how great mans heart was against Him, He had no choice but to destroy what He had Created. Sounds like America? Sure does to any versed Christian. It is note worthy that Noah found grace and was spared to carry out God’s Divine plan of restoration. Which brings me to the confirmation from the New Testament.

 

Jesus spoke very clearly to anyone who has ears to hear His voice concerning His soon Return! Listen to what Christ Jesus says concerning the days in which we live. Please tie it in with what was just written.

 

Matthew 24:37 “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming

of the Son of Man be. 38 “For as in the days before the flood, they were

eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that

Noah entered the ark, 39 “and did not know until the flood came and

took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

40 “Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left.

41 “Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the

other left. 42 “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.”

 

Did you catch what Jesus was saying? Just like the days of Noah before he entered the ark. Men were “eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.” Life as usual with no regard to Righteousness! No thought of Holiness! You see today is just like the days of Noah. We have “Christians” who see gay marriage as a good thing. We have Christians who say murdering babies while in their mothers womb is a “free choice” and God wants us to be free, right? Wrong! We are Free to do what is GOOD and Righteous! Not to commit evil with no remorse! God Created male and female to be married! God Created them to marry and become One flesh! God Created Life! Every Life is Sacred to Him! From the time they are conceived He knows them! That is the Biblical Truth! Drugs, alcohol, pornography, profaneness, uncleanness, hypocrisy, gossip, slander, hatred, homosexuality, pride, lewdness…….are today’s preferred choice among professing Christians! How can I say such a thing? Christ said, “you shall know them by their fruit.” Most “Christians” will do most if not all the preceding and will do it in the Name of Jesus! Just “as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” Well it seems as if Jesus is knocking at our door! It is as if I can hear the “trumpet” being raised to sound forth His Mighty Return!

Paul set forth a plum-line to keep us focused. “The latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils..” Genesis 6 set out to show us the hurt in God’s heart because every inclination of mans heart was evil all the time. Jesus then confirmed to us that His Return would soon follow when people become just like the people were in the days of Noah. The hardening of the heart of men is upon us! Wickedness is increasing and evil is becoming good and good is now evil. So what must we do? Glad you ask! We MUST trust in Jesus Christ! We must cling to the Bloody Cross and realize the power of His Resurrection! After Trusting in Christ death, burial and Resurrection we must “shun” evil and cling to Good! Let us not have self-imposed biblical ignorance and think we are “Christian” just because we talk Scripture from time to time! Let us Do what the Bible says and not merely listen to what it says! Let us “Walk” and “live” in the Holy Spirit and be “Holy” as He is “Holy!” People need to see Christ in us! That means love what He loves and hate what He hates! So, if you made it to this point in the article let me say Jesus Loves you and proved it by Dying on a Cross to Wash away your sins! He Loves you where you are but certainly doesn’t want you to stay that way! Jesus wants to Transform you into His Image! Jesus wants to Shine through you! Shun Evil and Cling to His Goodness!
