In recent weeks, American news outlets have reported on Ashley Madison, Planned Parenthood, Bill Cosby, and Josh Duggar. Ashley Madison was a service that garanteed customers of a successful affair. The customer list was made public, and many christians were exposed, including Josh Duggar. A reality television star that seemed to be the poster boy for christian family values. Bill Cosby is a well known comedic actor that has been found to be a sexual predator despite a role he played as the all american father. Planned Parenthood meetings were infiltrated by investigators and their greed for money and disregard of women or children was exposed.
This is a prophetic call for believers to take note. A strong delusion has been poured out. God is full of Grace and mercy. He forgives the sinner, and redeems those that are in darkness. He has given his message of salvation, and many are believers in Jesus, but they are not followers. They have not gone through the discipline of God in order to be in discipleship. I don't mean people haven't bent over for a spanking. I mean they have not given their lives, over to the rigors of Christian discipleship and instead of going through the suffering of being called odd or alien and picking up their cross, they have picked up worldly and earthly desires.
Loving and receiving God's truth and justice as quoted in Psalm 111, means that we also understand what is done in darkness will be brought before God to receive justice. If we love that kind of justice, that means we have taken the initiative to seek God in prayer and his word to correct wrong thinking or actions.
Self help groups, and recovery are only sanctifying if you are actually applying new wisdom and directives in your mind and heart that promotes growth and change.
Bill Cosby, Ashley Madison Users, and others that get caught with their pants down, justify their actions. Maybe they thought, " I provide for my family, I do everything I'm supposed to do, I give to charity, I deserve this."
God allowed Josh Duggar to be brought out, and he will not stop there. Many have proclaimed the same scripture that the Duck Dynasty Dude used in an argument against homosexuality. It is referenced below. The scripture is not only calling out homosexuality, but also gossipers and liars, those without understanding.
Are you reading your bible to find out what God expects? Or are you continuing on in your demand of the world to put prayer back in schools and public buildings to put the ten commandments back up? If a person says they believe in God and his word, but does not do it, then he is a liar. Plain and simple. To him who knows to do good, and does not do it, it is a sin.
Sin doesn't start out blatant either. If you wouldn't allow a woman to slide down a pole naked in your living room, she doesn't belong on your tv stand, right beside the family bible. So what if your wife/husband wont have sex with you, it doesn't mean you can masturbate, watch porn, or innocently flirt with others on social networks to gratify yourself. So what if all your girlfriends go to Yoga, it is a religion that does not promote the righteousness of God. Oh whoops, I wasn't supposed to say that.
Let's stay on the men.
No, let's not.
Because when we invite demonic spirits in decorated with medical terminology, or new age thinking to confuse others, we become confused and invite that down on our family. If you are committing adultery against the Lord, then you might be giving authority for that spirit to attach itself to your husband, wife, or child in another form, and you will be to deluded, not able to see it or combat it. It doesn't matter if your job pays your bills, if it involves the promotion of sin, you have to lay it down. It doesn't matter if you are barren, if IVF involves the killing of embryos, you have to abstain. It doesn't matter if the medicine you take is saving your life, if it is made with aborted baby tissue, you can't take it, prescribe it, or sell it. It doesn't matter if the news is good, gossip is a sin, and if it isn't your news to begin with don't tell it.
Come out and be separated or the very thing you thought you could control, will control you. Your lies will begin to lie to you so that you won't be able to see truth. Your pornography viewing will become you defiling others. Your flirtations will become your affair. That is why God says to remember the wife of your youth. The more you load up in your mind to justify why you should be allowed to be unfaithful will cause you to be unfaithful in other areas. Remember your first love. Jesus. The ten commandments aren't a suggestion. Get rid of the idols. If God be God, then serve him. Delight in his word and praise him for his righteousness and justice.
Changes are coming and God is separating the sheep from the goats. The Gospel is powerful. It brings death and life. Death to sin and life in Christ is evidence of true Salvation. Do not deceive yourself, if the sin isn't crucified and dead because of repentance, it will lead to death.
Many Christians scoff at the Zombie Apocalypse, and turn around quoting scriptures about the end times and how awful things will be. Those two words: zombie and apocalypse describe very well what is happening and will get stronger and stronger as the days go by. Walking dead is a prophetic promise. Sin leads to death. Don't get infected being bitten by the lie that says I can control it.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11
He will use every kind of evil deception to fool those on their way to destruction, because they refuse to love and accept the truth that would save them.
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie.
Ephesians 4:17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking.
and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their work in darkness and think, "The LORD can't see us, He doesn't know what's going on!"
