See Fit?

I read something today and I think I cannot let it pass without talking about it to somebody.
And y’all get to be the somebody.
Aren’t you glad?

For privacy sake, I am not identifying the author but here is the statement:

 “They were seeking to worship God in a way they see fit.” 

Worship GOD in a way they see fit they say.

GOD is not seeking people to worship Him as they see fit.
No. Nope. Not at all!

True worshippers of GOD, worship Him as HE directs.

There is damnable blindness over people.

John 12:40 “He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.”  source 

These have believed the lies of the evil one that they can live in habitual sin and in this habitual sin they can offer up acceptable worship to a holy, holy, holy GOD. 

It’s a lie, People. 
And you know who is the father of lies, don’t you? Check out John 8:44

We can only worship the one and only holy, holy, holy GOD with clean hands and pure hearts. Check it out. Psalm 24: 1-6

Our hands are neither clean nor our hearts pure when we habitually practice sin. It’s not possible, People. Not possible. 

How about a list?
Even ONE of these sins, ONE time bars us from Heaven.
Check it out. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and Revelation 21:8

No, my friends, we cannot worship GOD, THE GOD of Creation, as we see fit. 
We will worship Him as He directs or we are not worshipping Him at all.
Albeit said worship will be received — by Satan, the god of this world. 

And who wants to worship a little g god?
Not me!

John 4:24

And with all this is there hope for any of us?
YES!!
His Name is JESUS!

1 John 1:9 

John 8:11

Just Can’t Shake It.

I saw a Facebook post a number of days ago that I have yet to shake.
It screamed at me reminding me sharply not only of the lostness of people but the utter darkness of mind that compels, even hurls them into puffed-up confidence that they are truly enlightened.

What’s the jest of the post?
Casual sex.
Partner after partner with no remorse.
No stigma, no judgment allowed.
Generations of people are enslaved, without repentance, and are bound for eternal hell. 
People who are deluding themselves, refusing to know they are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. Revelation 3:17

Naked without The Righteousness of The Christ and because of utter depravity are facing the WRATH of GOD.
Yes, people, GOD is love but His love demands His wrath on the unrepentant.
Don’t like that?
Don’t believe that?
That is to your detriment and GOD will so allow if you insist.

As I said, I have yet to shake it.
How can we get them to listen?
How can we rescue people who do not want to be rescued?
How can we get them to turn off the road to hell when they refuse to believe hell is, or even sin is?
How can we get them to see GOD HATES SIN and no sinner ever enters His Heaven?
How do we get them to hear?

I don’t know.
But I do know I want them to hear.
I want them delivered from deception, from sin, death, and hell.

Perhaps this post is just a feeble attempt to get someone, anyone, to listen — but I just couldn’t shake it — I had to write it. 

1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
Revelation 21:8

Starving!

One statement, well there have been many statements in this book that have held my attention; but, this one today from the book Un-Saved Christian, The Cost of Disobedience by Rebecca Ruth, well, let me tell you:
“Without His Word, you will fall away.”.

I think she is right. I was going to say more than right but that’s a bit much, isn’t it?
How can one be more than right? 

Without His Word, you will fall away. 

Without DAILY intake of Scripture, we will fall away from following JESUS.
It will happen — so, let’s just don’t let it happen!

Perhaps on the first day, we miss reading, we will not notice a waning of fellowship but within a short time the world will wear on us and we will respond in kind.

So let us just head off the flesh, the world, and the devil, at the pass and read Scripture daily. 

One of the many things for which I pray is that I may be enabled to connect more People with more Scripture. 
Scripture is our food.
It’s our bread, milk, and meat; and without it, we will starve off the Vine.  John 15:1-8

Please check out these passages: 1 Peter 2:2; Hebrews 5:11-13; 1 Corinthians 3:1-3

And if you are participating in the Weekly Planner Reading, today is Ezekiel 11.

I came here with a copy and paste from my Facebook page comment and as I did I realized I had read the wrong chapter for today’s Planner Reading. 

Well, I shall offer you all my oops anyway – for your taking, or not. 

Verse 1 there is actual sexual sin reported among you he said. Wow.
Have you noticed sexual sex is no longer reported among us; rather, by and large, it is accepted as acceptable?
How displeased GOD must be!
 

Church discipline – verses 1-5.

 

How many of us long for practicing Christiandom to be holy?

 

Verse 8 – Don’t we want to live in purity and truth? And if we don’t why don’t we?

 

This whole chapter!
So very plain.
So very plain how far from purity and truth the professing church has strayed.
Like the chapter reads we are not talking about the world here, we are talking about people who profess to love JESUS.
What a chapter!
