11-23-2015 Worldly Living

Christians “should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart” (Ephesians 4:17-18 NKJV). People who are “alienated from the life of God” are: clueless as to what life is really about; can’t see beyond their own lusts; are ignorant and not worldly-wise; and blind to what is good and decent. Jesus came to “seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10 NKJV). Jesus’ message to the lost is: “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16 NKJV). Jesus died for you, live for Him, and then Thank God.

2-12-2015           Reserved Seats for Judgment

When some movie portrays pure lust of the flesh and uncleanness, then those who finance it, make it, act in it, and buy tickets to see it have despised the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.  He inspired the Apostle Peter to warn us ahead of time that “the Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment, and especially those who walk according to the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise authority” (2 Peter 2:9-10 NKJV). The Israelites who died in the wilderness did so because “the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it(Hebrews 4:2 NKJV). Will your lust for uncleanness overcome your faith in God’s Word?
