The Lawless and the Word
Man, I am really in a state of agitated, irritated, dismay. The youth of the Church have so been indoctrinated in the ‘new’ thing that they have forgotten the straight path. Most of them don’t know their Bible they can’t stand to hear it quoted and they are so full of the ear tickling garbage that they get at conferences that they cannot endure sound doctrine. They think they have intimacy with God because they sing songs to Him a couple of times a week, and yet they do not think knowing the Word of God has anything to do with intimacy.
I mean, if the person you loved most in the world were to die and leave you a long passionate love letter,….would you never read it? Jesus physically left us 2000 years ago to be at the right hand of the Father interceding for us, He left His Word and the Holy Spirit of God with us. His Word is the only written letter we have from the one we say we love the most. And yet can we claim we have intimacy with Jesus Christ if we don’t even care to read the letter He left us before He left this World? THAT’S INSANE!
He told us how to live, what to hope for, what to do while He was gone, what He wants to find us doing when He gets back, what to expect if we live for Him, what the promises are to those that will follow Him, ect, ect, ect. If we were true lovers of Jesus Christ we would be quoting His Word like a first language. We would pattern our lives after the Word that He gave us, we would live as if the Word He spoke was absolute truth(because it is).
Instead the youth and most of the Church today quotes musicians, movies(which most are from hell), politicians, ‘prophetic’ icons, and any other God they serve other than Jesus Christ. These idolatrous people don’t seem to know that their lack of love for the Word of God stems from the very fact that they don’t really love the author of that Word. In fact Jesus was the Word(John 1) so you can’t even separate Jesus from the Word itself.
The youth and most of the church today seem to think that someone who teaches and quotes the Word of God is ‘religious’ and therefore in order not to be religious we need to delve in relative truth rather than in the absolute truth of the Bible.
With the percentage of abortion and divorce being as high right now in the Church as it is in the world it is easy to see that the Church has openly strayed from absolute truth and because of this they cannot stand on the Word of God to justify their ways. So they accumulate unto themselves false teachers and prophets in accordance with their own desires to tickle their ears all the way to hell. Not able to endure the sound teaching and doctrine of the Word of God. I think most of the Church has errantly come to the place of believing that living your life according to the Word of God is like living your life according to the law( the way they did under Moses), and that we are under grace and not the law.
They say that their lawless way of life is ‘freedom’ and that the Holy Spirit is leading them so they don’t need to live by the Word. Wow,….well after looking at the statistics,…it looks like their version of the Holy Spirit is leading them into Godlessness,….doesn’t sound like the Holy Spirit I know. I mean does true freedom in the HOLY Spirit of the Living God lead to divorce, and killing unborn human children? Yes it is true we are not under the law but we are under grace, and what is grace? Grace is a power by which we overcome sin,…under grace the law of God is written on our hearts. Under grace we have power to live out the law of the Word of God. Many will say, “the law is dead and we don’t need the Word to lead us!” Many think Jesus will receive them into heaven because they are so loving(oh puhleeeze), but just look at this,…..
Jesus said,…”Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophecy in your name, and in your name cast out demons, and in your name perform many miracles?’
” and then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me you who practice LAWLESSNESS.’
What! Jesus actually cares whether you are lawless or not? Hmmmm I guess thats why He said ” I did not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it”.
