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

We are now about 2,000 years since that First Resurrection Sunday.

That Resurrection Sunday was vastly different from what any of us will experience here in 2022.
We read in
John 20  some of the happenings of that day. 

May I say, I am confident Mary Magdalene and all of the Apostles, if they were with us today, would decline to participate in the many planned festivities for April 17, 2022?
By and large, Resurrection Sunday celebrations are so far from Scripture, that it behooves us to repent and return to our First Love.

Easter eggs, easter baskets, easter rabbits, egg hunts,– shall I go on? 
Father, forgive them for they know not what they do, JESUS would say. He has said

I have a question.

Why is JESUS, and JESUS alone, not enough to celebrate this Resurrection Sunday 2022?

Pardon my Observations (2)

Sin in the minds of humans
(oh let me chase a rabbit: perhaps this drive to merge humans and digital technology is another Satanic attempt to mongrelize the human race, an attempt to make them unredeemable; incapable of receiving conviction and reconciliation with GOD. But as GOD intervened previously, I expect He will again at the perfect juncture. Would you like just a brush with the technology I am referencing? Click HERE.)
in this 21st Century is no big deal. 

Society is making it its mission to castrate sin (by the way it can’t be done); refusing it the power to destroy them.
And yet that is what it is doing; the very refusal to admit the presence of sin in themselves is depriving them of deliverance, forgiveness, and reconciliation with GOD. 

Denial has not one wit diminished the power or penalty of sin – it remains as it was when Satan introduced it to Eve and to Adam. (Genesis 2 and 3)
We do no one a favor when we refuse to NAME sin.  

So what is sin? 
Look it up — the Bible minces no words naming these rebellious acts. 

For starters, we may begin with Galatians 5:18-21 and then we may move on to Revelation 21:8 and if you will allow Holy Spirit, He will carry you through the entirety of His Word until all sin in our lives is named, repented of, and rendered null and void to destroy us. 

Ownership?

Question.
Have you read Luke 4 lately?
Did you read it yesterday?

Luke 4 

The Adversary took him up, showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world,
and said to him, “I will give you all this power and glory. It has been handed over to me, and I can give it to whomever I choose.
So if you will worship me, it will all be yours.”
Yeshua answered him, “The Tanakh says, ‘Worship Adonai your God and serve him only.’”  source 

Did you notice, YESHUA did not dispute Satan’s ownership? 

When Satan makes this offer to the antichrist, he will not answer the way YESHUA did.
He will drop to his knees and worship that evil being. 
The antichrist with full knowledge and undeceived will worship satan for power and stuff he will only get to keep for a very few short years. 
And thereafter — well, let’s see his fate. 

(KJV) Revelation 20:10  “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”  

And this one:

Revelation 19: 20 And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire, which burns with brimstone.  source 

Did you catch that? 
THROWN ALIVE into the lake of fire. 

They will not have company in that fire like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego had when they were thrown into the king’s fiery furnace for their refusal to bow to any god but THE GOD.
Check out
Daniel 3, particularly verses 25 and 26. 

Loving JESUS here is costly but eternity is forever.
